And sweat at the daily round,
While in my soul forever
The drums of Pictdom sound?”

I wonder how this affects Heroes & Other Worlds, a simulacrum.

SJG's has reached out to Dark City Games and maybe HOW!  Hopefully DarkCity will be able to continue producing solo adventures using the revived tft rule-set.  I would think that competing rules in the vein of tft would be expunged at some point. HOW is a good product and is obviously a labor of love, perhaps Mr Brandon will continue to write supplemental materials.  I hope so given they helped keep the game alive for the last many years.

That would be neat. I remember buying the original games from the Johnson-Smith joke catalog when I was a nipper.

A neat re-working of the rules
