? B C N O T U W Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4

With several of your warriors wounded from the many fierce battles against Utgar's marro forces, you have asked the Moon Tribe for help with the wounded. They tell the tale of a spring where the waters heal even the most severe of wounds.

You decide to trust in the Kyrie of the Moon Tribe, and send a scouting force to find this Waters of Life; but the infestation of Marro runs deep into the Uncharted Swamp. As you penetrate further into the swamp, a stench of decay overwhelms you and makes you wonder whether the fabled Waters of Life have been distrubed by these alien monsters.

According to the emissaries of the Moon Tribe, you have discovered the ancient Waters of Life! Many tribal warriors came to drink these magical waters to cure their most severe injuries, spawning the myth that the Waters of Life can bring back warriors from the dead. Now a new power has taken root in the Waters of Life -- a deadly Marro Hive that is slowly transforming the Waters of Life into a drink of doom.

The Marro Hive has been changing and contaminating the Waters of Life, but so has the magical spring been fighting back and changing the grotesque Marro abomination. In its confused state, it can't distinguish friend from foe, randomly linking telepathically to any General in the area.
