    I think this is as good an argument as any to run these game
seperately and
add the fudge factor to determine when the shields drop for the FT game.

    I had thought about the DSII cross-over, but didn't see the
potential for
Endor.	Brian's idea for shifting this battle to Hoth isn't bad.  You
always make up another planet and have a base that is smaller than the
being protected by a shield that is projected from the planet.	That
way, you
could use whatever terrain you wanted.	If you do decide on the snow
you know I'll have it along for Ord Sarno, so feel free to borrow as
much of it
as you want after the pod race. <g>
