There was a list member some time back that looked into acquiring the TFT
rights.  He had some resources at his disposal, but he'd have had to get a
bank check in the amount he was willing to offer, and Thompson would either
give a yes or no with no further negotiation possible.  Given the very
limited appeal of such a re-release, he decided it wasn't worth the aggravation.

I don't think a kickstarter could possibly help in this situation.  The
closest we'll probably come is the Dark City series of games.
