About

While tracking the enemy, you suddenly begin to question your mission. You could be under the influence of the doubt trout. The doubt trout is a very unusual fey creature. They are usually found in rivers and lakes in Feyland. They glow bright orange and stand out in the clear blue and green bodies of water. A school of the glowing fish is quite a stunning sight.

Drain Confidence. In the presence of these fey, one is drained of confidence and doubt begins to take over. A strange tingling sensation can be felt all over the body.

Interior Lives. At times, powerful beings capture these creatures and place them in containers in their lairs. This puts any strangers at a significant disadvantage. Doubt trout can also double as indoor lanterns.
