    The important part of the definition seems to be "flowing" water.
    OK, so it has the exact same meaning as in french Thanks !

    I really wish I had thought about this a tad more. I would have been rather cruel and made the river on the right side like this(red denotes where it currently ends):

    Post Yes, as long as the other rules are followed!

    I would say as long as you follow the requirements for the number of water courses for particular square selections, you are free to create additional water courses (rules are "at least" 1, 2 or 3 watercourses) and can certainly allow you to place additional lakes, sinkholes, ponds, even swampy terrain, in addition to required water courses/rivers.

    Again, as noted on a an earlier post, scale is up to the cartographer, so you can make this terrain any size you require as long as the rulings are adhered to regarding numbers of rivers, etc.

    Are the River Police allowed to enter or is it more that we are "strongly encouraged" to enter ?

    There were no discussions on the CL forums that I recall, so anyone is free to enter....

    My inner rules lawyer needs to know: rule 2 says "1/5th (20) must contain 2 watercourses" but the other two items dictating number of watercourses include the modifier "at least". Does this mean that exactly 20 squares must contain exactly 2 watercourses or was it intended to be "at least 2 watercourses"?

    At least. The idea of the challenge was to have every square with a river and make some squares have more than 1 river.

    I took it to mean exactly 20 like it said and removed a few to make it fit.

    We cant seem to go a month clear without some challenge cock up.
