i am yet to see it, but that does sound a little limiting.

FASA has said that they are now concentrating on 2 new games. CS and
a new TCG. There is something on the FASA website called Vor : The
Maelstrom, but im not sure if thats it.
Does anyone have information about this trading card game? I couldnt
find release dates, i just remember it being in a post (you have to
hate HDD failures) that it was one of the 2 things (along with CS)
that fasa would be doing as 'new' games.
Web sites, rumours, illegal footage and information from drugged Fasa
exec's all welcome. ;>
