RE: (TFT) The Lost TFT book

< Just driving home from vacation last week, I pondered how big would a 5,000 foot 
mountain (not overly high) be in my favorite miniatures scale (1"=5ft) 5,000 ft = 
1,000 inches = 83 feet!

A 5,000 foot mountain in minis scale would be 83 feet high!

How's that for perspective?

Let's see, uhhhh, 304.8mm per foot.
25.4mm per inch.
Intresting, to and old school Phil Barker lead pusher anyway.
I use Heroic Greek art as a standard @ 6' tall for the ideal male Figure rather than the more realistic 5'.
Appling this adjustment of about 20%, it looks like ~66 1/2 feet.

Yeah, 5000 feet isn't HUGE at about 1/6th Everest, but it isn't tiny either.
Anybody wanna figure how far a Figure could idealy see from up there?

Oh and not only signal fires and the like (ask Drake) but if you put a limit on teleport that makes it easier to jump to where you can see then mountain tops get even more intresting.
