Well said, Rick. I agree there is no canon here, because TFT never
really got past the unstable "2.0" stage with its true visionary
still in control. I'm calling version 1 the Microgames.

As for the 2.0 (AM/AW/ITL) documents, there isn't even an index. Much
(if not all) of the documentation was laid out by hand in those days.
There were probably different people who worked on different parts of
different documents: someone wrote the combat example in AM with its
inconsistencies, put together the codex, the Fantasy Masters' Screen,
etc. Maybe SJ or HT did quality control at the end and tried to catch
all the mistakes and contradictions. We shouldn't be surprised that
they are there.
