** Rick, I have yet to see Vor, but I have seen such things in other

to do just that.

** My own 0.04 (I talk a lot) is that FMA-RPG and FMA-Skirmish should
remain distinct. If we want to take the FMA-Skirmish rules as the
"combat supplement" for an RPG, that would be fine, but let us leave
FMA-Skirmish as what Jon seems to be aiming it for - a Skirmish game.
If we want to work up some RPG concepts as a supplement (which makes a
lot of sense, and I'd love to do.... I think the idea of role playing
in the GZG verse is rife with possibility), then that is meat for
