	All of the talents would have to be one way 
or the other, of course.

	I've done this for all the talents in my campaign.
Of course this work is insignificant compared to the 
effort of republishing TFT.

>What do you think?

	For people playing in their own campaigns,
they will use what ever system they are most 
comfortable with.  However for people new to TFT,
I think that the simplest system would be best.
