An Abundant Place

Eat or drink to gather awareness.


A watering hole might take the form of a spring, where the water flows from out of the ground. It might take the form of a lake, where water flowing down from the mountains to the sea reaches a point where it slows and tarries for a bit. Every animal needs water, including human beings, so these areas provide a crucial resource. They also provide a point where hunters can find a trail to follow, since their quarry will need to drink as well.
