From the introduction:
Throughout recorded history, there have always been adventurers. And their enemies. For a long time, these brave adventurers fought the enemy. And they usually won. But recently, there have been rumors of a large enemy city somewhere in the Eamon world. The city is supposed to be the legendary city of Helstar. You don't know if you believe this or not. The last recorded sighting of Helstar was over 1000 years ago near a small African village. But if it has arrived here in Eamon, the chance to destroy it forever is finally here.
Legend has it that Helstar can only be destroyed by "the two jewels". After a long month of research, you learn that when these jewels are brought close together, and a special phrase is said, there will be some sort of magical explosion, and the entire city of Helstar will vaporize forever.
Both of the jewels have been guarded by powerful people for millennia. One of them is in a cave somewhere, inside an indestructible magical field. The other one was in a wizard's chest but about a year ago it was stolen. If you do not get it back, Helstar will be destroyed anyway... except that you'll still be in the city when it happens. And then you'll vaporize too.
You will be transported to somewhere near the place where Helstar is rumored to be. Then you're on your own. Good luck.
