Drizz'l Simple. I get the Earth Orb because of the whole elven thing.

Bikke gets the Water Orb.

And you two get the orbs that're so thematically appropriate to each of you that I don't need to specify which they are.
Garland, I get...
Because I'm such a hothead?
Drizz'l Yeah, sure, why not.
Vilbert Air? What am I going to do with the Air Orb? I don't actually breathe!

Drizz'l I'll grant you trade and commerce, so travels for those purposes would qualify as well.
Drizz'l But not traveling as a whole.
