Introducing Canal History Canals in the UK have a long history dating back to the Romans, who built several canals here including the Fossdyke, still navigable today. A long period elapsed after the Romans left Britain when no canals were built. Improvements to rivers were made although the aim of these was often to harness the waterpower, or for fishing, rather than for navigation purposes. It was in the reign of Elizabeth I that the next canal was built, at Exeter, this was also the first use in Britain of pound locks - the type of lock in common use today - all the navigable rivers at that time used flash locks. After this many schemes were introduced for the improvement of river navigations, often provoking strong opposition from water mill and fish weir owners. In 1660 there were 685 miles of river navigation, by 1724 another 475 miles had been added by improvements to many rivers including the Aire & Calder, Douglas, Idle, Irwell, Kennet and Weaver.

Geist is one of the games I’ve been looking forward to most this year, and I’m excited to check it out — and share it with you — a month before it’ll be available in stores. I got a free PDF copy of the full retail game (pictured to the right; here’s a larger cover) from White Wolf, and they made just one request: Don’t share anything about Manifestations, the Twilight Network, the Underworld chapter, and Ceremonies. I don’t need to address those sections to talk about running Geist, so you’re not missing out.
