Hmm. I hadn't actually thought of the issue of new players coming into
game, or playing at cons. I only play at cons once a year, and everyone
know who is interested in FT has a copy or uses mine.

So, you've sort of convinced me. However I'd still like to see Jon's
attempt at a Full Thrust type game. Oh, well. I'm out voted. Bring on
rules supplement. However, I am COMPLETELY AGAINST a rewrite with new
added. I would like to see FT and MT put into one book, but without any
changes. Changes should be put into a new supplement. If I'm going to
a game, it should have totally different mechanics. I don't want to get
the situation where I have to re-buy Full Thrust just to get the two or
three pages of required erratta. I would snap up a rules supplement the
it hit my local store's shelves, though.
