|The adventurers close in on the evil wizard and his goliath henchmen.|
plastic straws found here. The big skull was made from Sculpey pressed into a Halloween ice cube tray.
I can see the adventurers questing to turn the flowing water back on -- maybe activating healing or other properties...
Here's the flowing water with a little synthetic snow to make the foam/splashes.
I'm very happy with the way it turned out.
