This cavern was claimed by a priestess known as Nastja the Righteous many years ago. In life, she was gifted with divine magical abilities that she used to heal the sick and mend the wounded. She asked nothing in return for the use of her powers. Eventually, she was pursued by those with nefarious intentions and was forced to go into hiding. She found this cavern where she created a gauntlet that visitors must pass. Through her magic, she ensures that there are always obstacles that must be overcome before reaching the magical pool.
This dungeon is combat heavy. Most areas contain creatures that can, or must, be fought.

This looks to be an abandoned camp.

This old study is messy and most of the papers have turned to dust. A swarm of spiders attacks anyone that disturbs the deck on the eastern wall.
A troll is sleeping against the pillar in this area and will attack anyone he sees if disturbed.
Nastja offers to let a friendly party drink from the pool. They gain the benefits of a random potion if they drink. They will be allowed to take some of the water with them unless they are hostile toward her.
