I haven't had any luck finding specific info on how Spawning Pools work. I have a few ideas of how they might work, but is there anything official? Generally accepted? 1. my first guess is that they were set up by the Old Ones to fire off a spawning at regular intervals. This comes with a subset of guesses on how THIS works. a. regular intervals b. planned timing? (like they predicted when they need X amount of troops) c. certain weather conditions? 2. are they triggered by the slann or maybe even priests? can dormant pools be reactivated? can tainted pools be cleansed? 3. I hope it's not completely random... If there is no official canon, let me know what you guys think. or maybe there is an old forum I'm overlooking.
