Choice Text and Results

Go north

You make your way into the cleaner water up north. It's a long trudge, but you eventually make it up to near the Docks.

(Enter Lake Metroplex (North))

Or, with 3+ Diving Ability:

You swim gracefully to the north, putting the polluted depths behind you… for slightly less polluted depths. It's sad when a lake folks haven't been able to drink from for decades seems like a major discovery.

(Enter Lake Metroplex (North); does not cost Energy)

Explore instead

You poke along the border, not letting your excitement get the better of you.

There is actually one thing that strikes you as a little strange. The water on this side is murky and even feels slimy, but just a few feet away it's clear.

That isn't to say the northern waters aren't blighted. You think they're so clear because there isn't much living in them, but the sudden change is kind of weird.
