33 The Shallow Pool

This cavern is very damp and humid, all the walls have a sheen on them from the moisture. Against the north wall is a large stagnant pool.

The pool is wide but looks shallow. Examination shows a number of small cave fish swimming in it. Your torchlight catches a glint of metal about three feet out from the water’s edge.

Within the pool is a large crystal ooze. Prodding or reaching for the metal will arouse it to attack.
