Is it summer yet?

The semester is drawing to a close: less than one week of lectures remain. That doesn't mean people around here aren't already a little punchy. One of my friends, Mike (an english professor), stopped by the Dirt Lab to see what was going on. He immediately saw the narrative potential of the Em2 stream table. So a few of us set about re-creating a dramatic scene from the Lord of the Rings:


Which got me thinking of another scene:
Give us the halfling, she-elf!

If you want him, come and claim him!

As the riders set foot in the Bruinen, the waters begin to rise...

...and churn about them...

...sweeping them away downstream...

...amidst a roiling cloud of water and foam that resembled horses.

With their enemies thwarted, our heroes can rest and recover in Rivendell.

This probably isn't the geekiest thing done with an Em2 stream table, but I think it comes close.
