I think you missed the point.  I was lamenting that TFT, an other-
wise commendable system, allows characters to attain outlandish 
stats.  8 years of gametime?  Please -- I've ran characters in 
AD&D up to forced retirement.

The point of my discussion was that TFT is broken with regard to
characters of high experience.  And, realistically, can you really
imagine a character with ST 25?  Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably
about an ST 18 - I personally just can't envision a character that
could toss physically toss Arnold around like he was a rag-doll.

Those are my opinions, my $0.02 worth.  I don't want to start a 
flame war with you Michael, so lets just agree to disagree on this
