Dramatic Opportunities

This article is directed to writers of stories set in the alternate history 1632 universe, and their readers. While rice farming may be simply a part of the scene setting for such a story, there are some situations in which it may play a more prominent role in the plot. These include:

--pioneering a rice crop in a place where rice cultivation was not established in 1631;

--the struggle to bring in a rice crop despite disasters (floods, droughts, cold spells, hot spells, infestations, etc.) or armed conflict (bandits, enemy forces);

--bad rice . . .
