Water catcher/collector/purifier - Put all waste fluid (including urine) into a container - try to maximize surface area.

Lay a tarp over the hole and put a small stone or other weight on it over the clean container so that condensation from the tarp will drain into it.
Water Cure -
Water elemental - a magical creature. One assisted the Delmaruntha Dig party to escape from charges of unemployment in Delmaruntha. See Astro.
Water Monopoly - Iceland, Seige of Parapanisades, Alonzo Coatline.
Water monster - on Shang. Sankwich Explorations Mission III: The trip up the waterway was uneventful until the waterway started widening and the aquatic lifeform made an attack on the dinghy. This time it hovered in the water inches below the surface. It had the appearance of a large catfish or sturgeon. The head of the creature was approx. 36 to 48 inches wide. With that size of head, the animal could be around 12+ feet long and weigh in excess of 1000lbs. It could possibly swallow a humanoid whole.
Water pills - used to determine if "water poison" is present in a sample of water, NOT to purify it.
Water poison. Actually a disease that taints most of the natural bodies of water on EOW. Can't be cured by very low-level "cure diseases." 3rd level is pretty sure to cure it. 4th will definitely take care of it. 6800-6850: period when (it is thought) the water was poisoned in Arboria.
Water serpent - a huge creature found in the Sprinal Tap. It was made out of water and unaffected by conventional weapons but reacted to lightning bolts. Detect-magic will reveal it as a coiled serpentoid form of hydromantic energy resting at the bottom of a mountain lake. Found by Omnico.
Waters of Oblivion - last words of Wizard General Peabody. Juho made connection to Chornoye Morye. Black Waters. Black liquid on Frog World that sealed the entrance portal (?). Looking into it is like looking into your soul. Or are the waters behind the doors?

Western Wind Group - a largely gypsy elf and somewhat undisciplined adventuring group founded in early December 10039 by Genevieve L'arnot in Jacketz to transport ancient gnomish artifacts which had been purchased from renegade deep gnomes who wanted their heritage preserved somewhere safe away from all the fighting in the museum Drew Pearson worked for.
Whispering Ferns - large green ferns of tropical forests of Vyrica that produce different pitches in the breezes. There are also rumored to be specimens in the Sprinal Tap.
White Tower - an ancient-looking tall tower that looms over the mouth of a mountain pass at the end of a wide valley on Vorn. Found by El Ouhd's Mock Turtle Group. The tower is of white stone, and very old. The roundness of it is shaved at the "corners" forming an odd octahedron. Near the top it had started to crumble, however, the bronze (?) door was polished and well-kept. The covering for the entrance to the tower was made of a highly polished brass (?) that apparently had no hinges. No Vorn magic was detected, and it was not tested for EOW magic. It was not determined how the door could be opened.
Whorfin, John () - Disappeared with John Drake after the mass murder of The Pirates in Dun Cess.
Widowmaker, Rand (Monty). Great axe fighter with a strength in the 90s. Member of SOAK. Missions: Culebra I, Omniventure counteract this? I'd like to hear what you all have to say ASAP. Time is of the essence."

Woodrosin Group - Named after Ester Woodrosin. Based in Minetown. Discovered a cave complex in the mountains after one of them, Rigby, was overtaken by a vague internal motivation.

Wright, General (NPC) - see Tholar.
Wyvern - A smaller relative of the dragon that tastes kinda like chicken (when eaten by SOAK on Culebra Island). Known specimens have measured between 13 and 15 feet in length. Are very annoying and sneaky - drop cannons on hapless PCs and tear up their camps while they're away - destroying food, poisoning water and ruining tents in a cold stormy climate. They are believed to be able to fly about 300 miles a day and so there is speculation that they may be used by the Roc to cross the glacier in the north.
