Fair enough:)  I think I'll work on the kit anyway,  I like the concept for
my own campaign!:) Thanks for the idea kickstart.

I like that maneuver,  if you come up with any others, please post!  I'm

Could you post those modifications?  They sound interesteing!
Man,  I've asked for a lot here,  I guess I better get a Realmspace update
