Let's Go Dutch

I was listening to another podcast from NPR that further elaborated on how the Dutch are taking water management in another direction. They are now building floating slabs with flexible utilities in flood plain areas as well as inside the protected levee areas (that will no longer be expanded). The government is also paying people with farm land to use their property as an overflow, which tends to work better than trying to contain the rivers, and being surprised when the levee breaks. The point being for New Orleans is that it is a lot cheaper to work in harmony with nature, then trying to control her. That way, Louisiana can pay for her own water management, instead of relying on the rest of the country and the government.

Whether an old adventure is downloaded from Dungeon Master’s Guild in PDF form or reclaimed from the basement after years of being stashed away, the stinginess of the current edition’s release schedule is softened by the idea that old material just takes a little time to be brought forward. Wizards of the Coast has gotten in on this activity through the most recent Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition release, Tales From The Yawning Portal. That book converts a sampling of memorable adventures from across several editions of Dungeons & Dragons to give new players a sense of history and old players some guidance on how the pros handle converting older material. There are hundreds, if not thousands of dungeons from the 53
