Hasbro did release a nice version of CE a couple of years ago.  I've got
a set and a half - I split the contents of one set with a friend, and we
spray-painted the bits white and black to let us play a 6-player game.

I really like CE - it's got just the right amount of backstabbery to
make the game fun!

I'm here as well (of course!).  Lately my connection to anything TFTish
has come from Dark City Games.  They've got 3 Microquests out that are as
good as anything Metagaming did.  I'd tried to start a session of Crown
of Kings via email, but that was right when the shit hit the fan for a 
while, and I had to drop it.  I'm playing it as a solo game using
CyberBoard and enjoying it a lot.

John G, welcome back.  I really enjoyed the webpage you put up.  It's
a very personal approach to one person's take on TFT.  Thanks!

David - It was interesting to read the little rant you wrote when John
left, and impressive that you put it out there even though you're a
bit embarassed by it, and that you say right up front that your feelings
changed.  Thanks for sharing.

Scott, a very interesting approach to the world of Cidri, and a very 
interesting peek at the math from David.  One thing that I think was
overlooked though.  Assume a Cidri with a radius X2 of the Earth.  David
concludes that gravity there is 1/40th that of the Earth, but that is with
a mass equal to the Earth's.  I think that the assumption of an equal
mass is incorrect, and that you could use a value for mass easily enough to
make Cidri's gravity similar to Earth's without it being unrealistic.

This may or may not require hollowness in the center of the planet, 
though I tend to think it does.

Nice to see all you folks again!
