Re: (TFT) Dinosaurs for TFT --> Rick's comments.

I worked up statistics for a few of the larger /
more famous dinosaurs many years ago.  One thing
I notice is that your critters are much smaller
than the ones I made.

	My understanding was by putting it into
shadow / sunlight, and adjusting the amount of
blood running thru the bones, they were used for
temperature control.

	I don't have a problem with the DX of
the dino's.  Giving the really big ones a DX
penalty attacking human sized figures might
be fun tho.

	Most of PvK's ideas for rules make sense, 
but my days of the more rules the better are long
over.  I would think carefully as to which would
help the TFT system as a whole and look to 
implement a minimum subset.

	Nice work.
