Requirements: Puzzle #1, Puzzle #5, Puzzle #9, Level 2 Exploration
Action: Make a stew from the black flower on the top right (number 9) and 2 red flowers from the bottom center of the map (number 2). Drop a villager on the cauldron to eat the magic stew. It should then say, "Your villager feels no need to breathe". Drop that villager in the pond. He/she will climb the rock, jump off, and sink. The villager will then carry the quarter piece of the gong to the cave or to the research hut if puzzle #16 is not finished. If you forget the combination for this puzzle then you can always find it in the picture on the vine wall after you finish puzzle #8.
Description: "With the aid of a special breathing stew, a villager was able to hold their breath long enough to explore the depths of the lagoon. Long after disappearing, the villager resurfaced with a sunken object seen glinting far below. It's a piece of the Gong of Wonder!"
