Attributing a Tributary
You tunnel through a cavern wall and splash into a little underground stream. As you bend down to drink from the stream, a weird little pot-bellied creature waddles up to you. It has two huge, blue eyes, a nose like a pig, and a head that's shaped roughly like an overinflated football. It reaches toward you with one glowing finger and croaks "be...good."
The creature clears its throat and tries again. "This stream is a tributary of the sacred river Alph, which runs through caverns measureless to man. I am Et, the guardian of this stream that runs through caverns that are pretty easily sized-up by anyone. Have a drink, it's delicious."
You scoop up some water in your hands and drink greedily. It's not as mind-blowing as the water from the Alph, but there's also no orange fur in it.
