Shrines and Pools

The word "shrine" is used to describe any of the shrines, pools, fountains, or cauldrons found throughout the dungeons. Like anything that can be used in the dungeons, a shrine will have a yellow outline around it when the mouse cursor is over the shrine. Shrines are found on levels 1-8, cauldrons on levels 13-16, fountains and pools on levels 1-8 and 13-16, and goat shrines on levels 9-12.

Shrines can only be used by one player, and like chests after they are opened, they can not be used afterwards, and mousing over the shrine will no longer show information in the message area or outline the shrine. There are some shrine-like dungeon features, though, that remain active use after use: the Purifying Spring and the Pool of Blood. Level layouts change from game to game, and so it might seem that the wide range of shrine names might connect to random effects, changing their meaning from game to game, or maybe having no connection to the effect that the shrine bestows. Fortunately, once you find that one Eldrich shrine will change all your healing and mana potions into Rejuvenation potions, you will know that every other Eldritch shrine you encounter will do the same thing. Hence, if you encounter a Glimmering Shrine, you might want to wait until you accumulate a large number of magic items before using it.

Like the layout of the dungeon levels encountered in a game, though, the shrines will appear in different locations, and the types of shrines encountered on one level will change from game to game. The specific effect of a shrine might vary, however. Each Enchanted Shrine, for example, will decrease the spell level of a different random spell each time it is encountered and used.

Shrine rooms on levels 1-8 are usually crowded with creatures of one particular type.

Goat Shrines
Goat shrines found on levels 5-8, for example, are typically found in a closed-off room with one (initially closed) door and sometimes as many as a dozen goat-boys. On the lower levels, Zombies, Skeletons, or Fallen Ones might be crowded into the room. The great concentration of creatures does lend itself to area-effect spells, though, and can prove to be an easy way to gain many experience points, since the single door will provide a convenient bottleneck through which to pound on the inhabitants.

Pools are strange enchanted wells that are in the dungeons for unknown purposes. They function similarly to shrines, being activated only once, and giving you a certain blessing or curse. Pools are more common than the blood fountain, but less common than shrines.

The Blood Fountain
The Blood Fountain is a rare dungeon feature which stands apart from the shrines and the pools. It is a gory piece of stonework, a crimson pool of blood which is constantly refilled from the mouth of a winged gargoyle. Besides being very rare, this artifact is unique in that it can be used multiple times. With each use, it fills up your hit points. The Blood Fountain can be used as many times as you want.
