Hm, how about a new release in the DF line, summarizing all of the changes that DFRPG makes to DF?

If that'd be an odd stand-alone book, or if there wouldn't be enough content to make a book out of that, the release could go a bit broader: Make it a book of "switches" and other options to achieve specific DF play styles ("More D&D-like", "Grittier", "More mythical", etc.)

One of these play styles – call it "More streamlined"? – would cover all of the changes that turn DF into DFRPG.

Interesting idea? Lame?

It would be an interesting idea as a standalone book.
I would like some for other genres too.
As for me, I went for the "I want it All" as a gesture of support and did not expect to play it. However I am, so that is nice.
The Spells book would have been a good standalone as well and the Monsters nook of course.
I have most of the DF line already. the box was not a desired option for me as I have gotten used to the PDF way of things.
But I supported it in hopes of seeing more players come to the system.
I will also support additional ideas, though would like more than a 30 day heads up as money can be tight and if it happens the wrong month (say when its time to renew my 6 month insurance) I may have to skip it.

That would be useful, probably, but maybe a bit difficult in presentation. There are some big differences that could be presented as optional rule subsystems, like slams, but there are others that are fuzzier or subtler (like most of the changes to templates, spells and monsters). Then there's things that already exist in some form in GURPS outside of the DF line like the armor table which mostly already exists in Instant Armor.

I have been meaning to get around to making a comprehensive list on my blog, and after Sunday maybe I will finally have time again.
