Fountain of Health and Beauty

Themes: Power | Salvation

To find me you must go to the Gloomy Cavern. It will make you very sad. In the acrid smoke, you must meet and defeat two dragons with fiery eyes.

If you succeed, you will find a hole crawling with toads and snakes. Go down into it, and at the bottom of the hole, you will find a little cave. I am in there. The touch of my waters will change you. If you are aged, you will return to youth. If you are ugly, you will become beautiful. If you are sick, your health will be restored. If you are sad, your sorrows will melt into joy.
