Default List of changes between TFT TOS and TFT NG

I would suggest that SJ put a delta list of what rules changes there are between the soon to be Next Generation and The Original Series TFT.

As with good software or other engineering projects, getting people up to speed on the next release is usually handled with a list of changes that are easily accessed in the documentation.

Additionally, often the changes are marked in the text itself, though this can be a bit ugly to read.

Listed at the front...

Ex.- Engagement rules - Figures are no longer required to drop their missile weapons when engaged, though all other restrictions on missile weapon use, such as reloading and firing, remain. pp. 12-13

OR

In the rules...

Original - Figures gotta drop their bow when engaged
New - Figures donīt gotta drop their bow when engaged

Etc. etc.

*This* is correct; however, I hope the list of rules changes will be exceedingly short.

Me too! Too many people tried to "fix" TFT with house rules that only made it more complicated.

Or made it more like D&D.

You can make TFT more complicated without it being more like D&D and the other way round.

I figured, but some people are just too serious about things like that. This is the interwebs, after all.

You bought counting? Darn it! Why didn't I think of doing that? It would have made balancing my checkbook a LOT easier!
