Greets,

	I didn't say this in my original post, but I was thinking on
making the rivers be a "deeper" or "darker" color.  Then again, I was
also thinking of having sail area be a measure of how fast these
rivers can push you.  For instance, an elven manowar would go faster
than say, a vipership.  I know that this isn't what TSR said, but I
kinda like that idea.  You could maybe divide the sail area by the mass
to get a speed multiplier.  Then you could have "Flowrunners", ships with
*HUGE* sails, but a really bad MC.  They could act something like the
jumpships from Battletech.  They could carry smaller vessels between
spheres really fast, but are to big to fit through a portal (sail area
of several miles^2).

	Any comments?
