Strange Lights

This is a Lake exploration event. It can occur multiple times per play through and offers the chance to gain Seaweed Seaweed and the positive trait Special Trait Icon Blessed permanently. Explorers can drink the water or swim near the lights, lowering their Fatigue Fatigue and Depression Depression respectively, at the cost of increased Sickness Sickness


If you were to encounter the Mysterious Grave before this event and chose to Open the Grave, the outcome of Dive Deep changes entirely.


Inspect[ | ]

Strange lights are shimmering deep below the surface at this specific spot. You can't make out what is the cause of these lights, sometimes you feel you see a glowing shape but you can't be sure. When you swim near the lights, you feel a certain... Warmth. But like it was coming from inside your body. It's not unpleasant.

You want to get to the bottom of these lights, literally you are drowned in them! As you're close to the source of the lights, you feel a warm hand grabbing yours. It belongs to an alluring priestess. She's the most beautiful creature you've ever seen. She seems so unreal.

Failure
She's shaking her head and invites you to swim back up. But... but you need to reach the lights! You keep diving and reach the bottom. There are so many riches! You start playing with them, like you would with sand. You feel warm and nice. You could stay there forever. You feel a cold hand on your shoulder. That makes you come back to reality. The riches you were playing with... well... they were not riches per say. More like some kind of glowing sea snake. It's wrapped all around your body now. Its glow fades in and out, and with it some burning feeling on your skin. You panic.

The strange lady comes from behind you and traces a blue glowing rune on the sea snake. It makes it recoil with a strange hissing noise. You quickly swim up. On the surface, you search for the priestess. She's nowhere to be seen. She saved your life! You thank the gods, convinced they sent her.

She's nowhere to be seen. She saved your life! You thank the gods, convinced they sent her.
