Thank you. That is very, very useful. I've been relying on my not-so-good memory and best guesses for this stuff.

Those guides of Chucks are great.


Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

I have received permission from Chuck to pass his guides on to anyone who would like them. I will not publish them openly but I will be happy to send them to whom ever might want them.

Thanks for the sum-up. Having a litte memory-refresher in-game with just the minimal vital information would be great..
