For some centuries, Whelunians used the pond as a burial site for war heroes and those slain in battle, depositing them in the pond together with their armor and weapons. Though the corpses decomposed, their armor and weapons took longer to rust away, turning the water orange-brown with rust.
By the mid–13th century DR, Rathool's Pond was the local swimming pool and fishing hole. Nevertheless, the contaminated waters were considered unsafe for drinking or fishing, as they were suspected to cause sickness. However, the priests of Chauntea at the Harvest Hall opposed efforts to clean it up, fearing the dead would be disturbed and their spirits grow angry.
