    May All Your Wishes Come True!​

    The Wishing Waters
    Rumors of a newly discovered oasis have been filtering out of Horizon, whispers of a deep pool with crystalline waters and mysterious powers. It is said that the pool, aptly named the Wishing Waters, has the power to make a person’s greatest wish come true. People from all over Pandora have been risking the dangerous pilgrimage through the desert in the hopes that their wildest dreams will be fulfilled by the magical waters.

    Journey Through the Desert
    The Wishing Waters are located about twenty miles southwest of Horizon, though a curious area that citizens have come to call the Damping Field surrounds the waters in a ten-mile perimeter. The Damping Field is named for the fact that it severely dampens the powers of any individuals with exceptional abilities, specifically abilities that allow for extra-fast travel. Those capable of flight will find themselves suddenly grounded, those with super-speed will no longer be able to travel any faster than a horse. Additionally, vehicles will not function within the Damping Field, requiring that all characters reach the oasis either by foot or living, breathing steed. It seems that whatever powers have revealed the Wishing Waters also require that considerable effort be involved in reaching them. All characters must reach the Wishing Waters via ground-based travel, and may not go any faster than a galloping horse.

    Many obstacles lie between your character and the Wishing Waters, to include things like:
    • Sandworms
    • Bandits
    • Quicksand
    • Extreme heat (day)
    • Extreme cold (night)

    Making Wishes
    If your character successfully reaches the Wishing Waters, they'll be free to make a single wish! After the journey through the desert, this is the easy part. All a person needs to do is make a wish and drop a token item into the pool. The item should be somehow personally connected to them (or to the person they want the wish to affect). We don't require Wishes to be approved (just make sure they follow the guidelines below), but we would love it if you would post in this thread to help us track the wishes made and their effects!

    Some rules to keep in mind:
    • A character may only make a single wish
    • The Wishing Waters do not grant death or everlasting life
    • You may make wishes that affect other characters
    • The Wishing Waters cannot pull anyone into Pandora
    • The Wishing Waters cannot banish anyone from Pandora
    • The way the wish plays out is up to the player of the character affected by it
    • No one is required to participate
    • All wishes (and their effects) granted by the Wishing Waters will disappear after the Winter Season.
    It's also worth noting that not all wishes will play out exactly how your character envisions. The Wishing Waters have a mind and consciousness of their own, and the way they interpret a character's wish is totally unpredictable.

    To that end, safe journeys, Pandora! And as ever, be careful what you wish for.
