Lonely Fountain

Halloween 2021: Underground Rave

Choice Text and Results

Listen to it

You listen to the bubbling of the fountain. Slowly, you start to recognize patterns underlying it that almost form a song.

You've gained 20 duration of Bubbling Fountain.

Watch it

The fountain bubbles and ripples. For a moment, it feels like you're looking down the gullet of a gigantic beast.

Or, while Etheric:


The fountain bubbles and ripples. It almost feels like the ripples are pulling you in, dragging you closer and closer to the surface of the water.

As you look down, you can see the fountain is just the mouth of some great beast, its throat extending ever downwards.
(Unlocks Molting Worm combat)

Drink some

You cup your hands to gather some water. The pale yellow liquid tastes like throwing up, but you somehow manage to force yourself to swallow.

As you feel the room temperature water sliding down your throat, you feel a warmth spreading through your body.

You've earned 4 XP in Will

Throw ancient gold coins

You toss in a handful of ancient gold coins. It seems appropriate in a way because, whenever the coins came from, they probably threw coins in fountains too.

You've gained 50 duration of Fountain Blessed.

Toss in old coins

You toss in a handful of old coins. They're hard won, certainly, but what can compare with a wish come true?

You've gained 50 duration of Fountain Blessed.

Drop in tarnished coins

You toss in a handful of tarnished coins. They sink to the bottom, hopefully carrying your wishes with them.

You've gained 30 duration of Fountain Blessed.

Leave it be

You keep walking. It's just a nice fountain in a sort of weird location, not a major tourist attraction or anything.

(Walk Away)
