Version 0.31: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

Fountains are a Dungeon feature often found in many vaults. They are mostly decorative.

Water-filled fountains act as proper water tiles for many purposes. They allow aquatic creatures to swim, extinguish sticky flame, and generate steam and freezing vapour when fire and ice spells are cast over them. Fountains won't have any of penalties from shallow water, however.
