The Source (adventure)
As you near the Icy Peak, you notice something out of the corner of your eye -- it appears to be a cave entrance.
You duck into the cave, and after following a strange green glow through a series of twisty little passages, you discover a huge glowing greenish-yellow lake.
You suddenly realize what you've found -- it's the underground source of the stream from which Mountain Stream soda is made. You grab a dixie cup from the dispenser (did I mention there was a dixie cup dispenser next to the lake? Well, there was.) and fill it with the glowing liquid.
|You acquire an item: unrefined Mountain Stream syrup|
