The caves underneath the mountain have led you to an open area of connected pools and partially submerged tunnels. The water itself is slightly warm, suggesting there's probably some form of geothermal vent nearby heating the area. The massive cracked eggs and scales littering the place mean this place could be none other than the Spawning Pools that you have heard about from travellers who brave the caves of Skyclaw Ridge. The same travellers tell of a band of Aquatari Outworlders who have set up a base of operations here, hatching their sacred Silver Hydra, keeping would be egg-hunters away through force. Wherever there are Silver Hydra though, you can count on the Octoprat to be nearby, seeking the eggs of such a creature for sale or dinner.
