Mammon will speak to the party through a dream. He says that a special rod must be retrieved from the Silver Citadel in the Silverbrand Forest. This citadel was once used by the elves as a barrier against the onslaught of savage ogres in the distant past. Since the defeat of the ogres 30 years ago, the Silver Citadel is now used as a testing ground for elven mages. The knowledge of the Rod of Orcus has been forgotten and the elves do not know that the rod is hidden in the catacombs.
