How did this work? I can see designating rivers as connections between
provinces similar to some of the road proposals... These would allow
transit for ships, but wouldn't impede land movement, which is another of
the fun uses for large quantities of water...

Did you place the rivers by hand? Or automatically? Come to think of it,
I don't know that I've ever heard whether the Oly II map is human-
or machine-generated.

Tom, designing rivers fairly abstractly for a game of his own...
(And not planning on implementing impeding land movement, either, because
if the river runs through a province (rather than between them) it
effectively creates two sub-provinces and becomes difficult to bookkeep)
