don't know when it will be released, but it DOES exist, has seen some
playtesting, and Oerjan, John L and I have been working on it hard
the "working on it hard" has been those two; I just give them snide
and feedback with the occasional playtest session thrown in for good
measure). I believe an alpha rules set was made available to the
list. The biggest stickler right now is, coincidentally to current
on the list here, the artillery rules. I think the current version of
arty rules is longer than the rest of the DS3 file! :-D

Now, whether DS3 makes it out before FT3 is to be seen...
