I would like to know too. I sure hope so because I love this game. I like how easy it is for characters to die in this game. It forces people to play a little more realisticly. Even though it is an RPG it is nice to have it a little more grounded for a change of pace.
I got this message back from Matthew. So if you'll post any and all questions here, I'll collect them and pass them to him. Maybe if we compile an unofficial faq, they'll clarify it and make it official.
