The party has been assembled from the most promising young adepts in the Kaer. Five brave adventurers have been selected. The Kaer houses Dwarves, Elves, T'Skrange and Humans. All but the Dwarves have a representative on the exploration team. They have waited one hundred and two years after the Elemental clock stopped moving. Magic has stabilized despite what Theran predictions indicated. The last Master of the Elemental Disciple has passed away and there is no longer anyone powerful enough to renew the services of the Water elementals that supply the Kaer with water. Thus the brave or perhaps foolhardy and desperate group of explorers must try to find a solution to the problem outside of the Kaer.
