21 RAINBOW LAKE. The waters of this lake include all of the colors of the rainbow. The colors march across from the lake from north to south in wide bands at about the speed of a crawling baby, never staying still and having no regard for the normal physics of waves and ripples. A boat house stands on the east shore of the lake and there is an island with bright green turf and a covered well.

Drinking the lake water will cause the skin and hair of the drinker to change to the hue of the lake water in that particular band. This effect will last for one hour or until a new drink of water is taken. Because of this effect, all creatures which are encountered in the lake will be the color of the nearest band of water. Despite being brightly colored, the lake water is still transparent when viewed from close up.

The lake is well stocked with normal fish (including rainbow trout). It is rather shallow and small, being only fifteen feet deep at its deepest point and just over 300 feet by 300 feet in total area. Substitute the following table for adventures on or below the lake.
