The art of the gamesmaster, and I use the word intentionally is to entertain his players. I agree, Powers & Perils is a great game. I repeat again, no need for water tables. Better the sound of running water and players startling a bear drinking from a pool

Yet a system like RoleMaster aka ChartMaster has
far more tables.  I've been in those games where
it takes 45 min of page flipping of charts for
ONE round.  So a player need to decide what they
want.  I stil think pnp is far better than 99% of
the fantasy systems out there.

As to water..well I solved it.  A certain spell will do it very nicely. :)
