Beowuuf nods at the greeting, once more giving Sylvia a quick look to see if she has any misgivings herself.
"Many of these teleporters have required a puzzle to unlock. The main ones requiring each individual to find a token's representation, and then obtain the real world equivalent. Have you been forced to take those routes?"
Beowuuf knew the man should have needed to do just that at least in the hall, unless something very strange was going on.
"I suspect the water holds a clue. It moves when it should not."
Beowuuf makes sure not to turn his back on the traveller, but instead steps right up to the nearest bowl. With trepidation, he places his hand into the water.
Hopefully this doesn't end badly!

"My understanding is that many of the major teleporters require the token to aid passage. Perhaps this is not a major teleporter, though..."
Beowuuf goes and drinks from the basin, trusting the water. At worst, it might impart some knowledge to him.
He looks to see if water is coming into the basin from somewhere. He also looks back to the entrance to this place - the other alternative is that the room is moving. He would put nothing passed this place!

It dawns on you that the things that live in the basins are water elementals. It is the elemental that creates the currents in the basins. They are not all that large but there are several of them around in each basin.
The basins are connected with underground channels from what you can make out.
Your thoughts seems to be confirmed by the man at the teleporter.
"It is water elementals in the pools," he states. "If you jump in they might give you a massage, not that I'd recommend it. They can be quite playful."
He turns his attention back to teleporter and continues to look over it.
The water itself tastes the same as you sensed. It is fresh in the mouth.
Sylvia moves over towards the teleporter moving forwards slowly.
Beowuuf nods as Sylvia offers the explanation. "Well then, let us explore some more, and perhaps I can aid you back to the safety of the Hall of Water when this is done, and we can share the knowledge we have all acquired with the scholars."
