I agree, I just had a brainstorm and threw the idea out there :) You have to
write this stuff down as the inspiration strikes you. I currently working on
a manuscript I'm going to submit to a game company and believe me, if you
don't write the stuff down as soon as possible you WILL forget what you were
trying to do :)

Agreed. Epic works pretty good as it is.

None taken :) I'll probably be using this in my Legionnaire system I'm
redoing from the ground up (for those old hands who remember my original
system most of it mutated into sections of Heresy).

And we already have a new radical general epic-scale wargame. It's called
"Heresy" :)
