It's worth clarifying that this is "year and a day" binding rather than task binding, because "do whatever I desire" is a non-specific task.

With regard to souls, I can't think offhand of any creature in the setting with the power to detect whether something has a soul. So either the summoner explains what sorts of beings fall under that rubric, or the elementals will be left to guess what's intended of them.

also technically humans have two souls and thus do not have "a soul" and are thus fair game for the elementals to interact with

tee hee hee

In all fairness, if the summoner has a specific intent behind that wording, the summoned creatures should understand it. In this case, I'm pretty sure this is a case of the summoner meaning "human beings" and trying to be overly specific — likely out of the belief that they'll have their wording twisted by the elementals / the ST.

How many spirits can a single sorcerer have bound to him at any given time?

I ask because i gave my group 1 months worth of down time in game to allow them some character development out of play...
Usually this is represented as some sort of montage where they explain what they spend their experience on & how they spend their free time.

One player spent the entire month summoning as many elemental's as he could which worries me he might be building a powerful army very early on as we are only
4 sessions in...

A battle group of a couple dozen elementals is nice, but not really world-shaking or anything.
