Ruined Keep of The Blood Marsh, Hampshire, England.
Keldon stepped away from the pool, unsure if the words that he had read were true. Sheathing his sword, Madmorsight walked to the edge of the pool, knelt and cupped his hands into the cool still water. It shimmered before him with a myriad of strange colors, the way oil looks on top of water. He brought the water to his lips and drank deeply.
The water illuminated deep blue and lit the room in sparkling hues, a disembodied soft female voice rang out and echoed within the cavern, surrounding them with her soothing sounds. “Ask bodly, but not overbold, lest answers make your blood run cold.”
Madmorsight stood up, “How can I be rid of this demon, Anitawa?”
The pool rippled lightly and the voice rang out again, “If you have the sword, I can rid you of it. Perhaps.” The waters then grew dark and still.
Geddren approached the pool next and dipped her hands to the waters and drank.
Again, the pool lit up in a beautiful display and the voice radiated, “Ask bodly, but not overbold, lest answers make your blood run cold.”
Geddren wiped her mouth with her sleeve, “How do we get out of here?”
“The only way out, is the way that you came in.” Dark and still the waters returned.
“Are my birth parents alive?” Kyrs asked aloud after drinking from the waters.
“They are not, but you may bring them back…” the Oracle hinted. The bright blue faded again.
Elora leaned down and drank from the waters, lighting them again. The Oracle repeated her warning, “Ask bodly, but not overbold, lest answers make your blood run cold.”
She asked The Oracle, “What is the purpose of the black mirror we found here?”
“The black mirror is a scrying mirror. It will show what was, what is, and what has not yet come.”
Beldet drank then held up the key he found from around the skeleton’s neck, “What is this key to?”
“That key is to the chest.”
Keldon then knelt at the pool and drank from the Oracle. When asked, he responded, “Is there anything that we can do for you?”
“Somewhere, there is a vase. It is red and covered with runes of gold. Bring it here to me.”
