Regular water. Sometimes.
So is this the dangerous kind of water? The "make your hair grow infinitely, turn your skin blue, paralyze you from the waist down, then kill you" kind of water? Or can we actually drink this shit?Water plays a vital role within Synthacrosia. The tower uses it as lubricant, as coolant, as fuel, as whatever it needs. The water flows down from an unknown source in the upper floors; from floor to floor, taking a multitude of different paths on it's journey downwards. At different parts of the water's journey, it often takes on different properties. Souls within Synthacrosia also need water; they use it for travel, they use it for creating. Anyone residing on the Third Floor or higher needs water to sate their newly awakened thirst. This can prove quite challenging, as the Third, Fourth, and Fifth floors have large supplies of tainted or toxic water.
States of water
PureWater in it's pure form can often be the hardest variety of water to find. On the First Floor, pure water is found in the damp places beneath rocks. On the Second, pure water is nowhere to be found, as the river is incredibly toxic. On the third floor, clean water is found only within the flesh of Salvation Cactus. The trend of sparse pure water continues the higher up the tower you go.
AccursedPoison and Curses taint the very land within the center of the Third Floor. Here, when water flows through, it takes in the evil from the surroundings, tainting it. Water found in Sanctuary, in the center of the Third Floor, is known to cause a myriad of detrimental effects; from changing the colour of ones features, to outright killing them. A massive whirlpool within the Sanctuary swamp collects the accursed water, and funnels it downwards, to the Second Floor. From the ceiling of the Second Floor, a colossal waterfall cascades down onto Weirborough , known as the The Spill -- it feeds the rivers that lazily spiral around the Second Floor. It's here the Second Floor citizens make their living by trading among themselves, doing their best not to touch the dangerous water they live beside, lest they suffer the horrible effects.
ToxicThe water of the Fourth Floor ocean is already full of trace, toxic elements, long before it reaches the tainted swamps of Sanctuary. The toxic water will not hurt based on touch, only if ingested. The scientists and magicians that live within Blackridgepool spend most of their time figuring out newer, more efficient ways of removing these toxins from the water.
I was trying to purify this batch of water... and I got pink dye out of it? Hooray, I guess?
