The request is a campaign set in the citadel of Mooncrest. The party is approached by a royal guard of Lord Daniel Tear, and asked to prove themselves before being requested to do a private request of the Lords.
They find they are being requested to search for the Elemental Orbs. A magical item that was made by eight different high leveled wizards. Originally there were five; acid, cold, electricity, fire, and sonic. Although three other wizards created orbs for water, earth, and wind.
The orbs give the one holding them power over the element that the orb is created from. In the wrong hands, the orbs are dangerous and can destroy the world.
