Okay just an observation.
When dealing with hexes (triangles) the orentation is IMPORTANT! I arange them the other way. I put the sides aranged North to West and the vertices East to West.
This makes quite a diffrence.
Please ask for the map files if your intrested in seeing what I'm typeing about.

Okay as of today (13th Dec '07) I have what I'm calling "PLAIN TEXT TFT" over 1/3rd compleate.
This effort was inspired by two factors.
1st your effort at a TOC.
2nd by the following appearing lately on the Web;


This is not the only example but IMHO now sites are CHARGING for these files then I am okay with making the following offer.

"PLAIN TEXT TFT" is the The Fantasy Trip 'Advanced' Rules in ANSI.
Included is (of course) your wonderful Table Of Contents, Chris Nicole's Marvolus Indexes and Spell/Talent lists, Steve Jacksons SG Eratta, and the Cidri Gazette compiled by the Vet's on this list (I believe).


I don't own a machine capable of doing OCR well.
An example;

Following are the cotnnxnuly.kminu ~pclls awalable to viutdt. For ouch ape1, the following Information us glIeu:
turn., type (Thrown, MI.Be, Creation, or ~,cchl); effect produced by the spell; and sr coat to caat the spdl and (if it Is a continuiiig4ype spell) to keep it in opuathon on mdi gtcceuU,c turn. Remember that the colt to keep a thrown spcli in operation it bated on a I-hex fiayre; a 2-hex fin.. costs twice at mudt, and so on. Sec Melee or Advanced Melee for explanation of combat uses.

Now I am NO typist.
Does anyone have a decent OCR version of AM or AW?
Else if I'll keep plugging away...

Unless someone wants' to help?

Else if just E-mail me and let me know if anyone cares about a plain text Doc we can all edit simply...
> Let me know what you think and enjoy!

I think it's a great effort!
If nobody else gets it "I'll" still make use of it!
