"More than 8,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in Germany's eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt after a dam on the Elbe river broke June 8, officials said June 9, AP reported. State officials are investigating a letter sent to multiple media outlets that threatened to blow up dams on the river." I feel that we haven't really been very sympathetic about this. Quite a few forumites are probably effected, at least second hand. What's it like out there? How're you coping?
Any thoughts on allowing players to ford streams/rivers or underground areas that are knee/waist/chest deep in water? Apart from it being visually interesting and possibly scary at times, it could allow for a variety of aquatic encounters to take place. For example, if the party has no choice but to cross a waist deep stream on foot, they might become targets for electric eels, snakes, and "bitey" fish like piranhas. Or in subterranean lakes, aboleths, aquatic undead, frog-men, and all manner of amphibious creatures. Obviously, the engine would need to handle the visual complexity of water and water-combat, but it could open up additional adventuring possibilities previously unavailable in IE games. Do we need this in P:E ?
