Monday Mutant 119: Polyominous / Tetra Firma

In this Polyominous puzzle, the rule that no two polyominoes of the same size may share an edge is specifically waived for tetrominoes, which must follow the rules of Tetra Firma (excluding the rule that every region contains a single tetromino). The number 4 never appears as a given in the grid; instead, the letters L, I, T, and S are given, corresponding to the shape of the tetromino.
In the past, I have plugged my board game Battle of LITS, which uses the LITS rules to create an original two-player game. Battle of LITS will soon appear on nestorbooster, giving readers the chance to pre-order and fund the creation and sale of a portable version! Stay tuned!

rob: O tetrominoes are forbidden by the rules of Tetra Firma, but implied polyominoes of any size are permitted by the rules of Polyominous. Any unclued 2x2 region will need to be split up into smaller regions in order to be in accordance with these rule sets.

Sorry, feel free to put my deleted comment back in -- I figured out what part of the rules I missed and was afraid of spoiling for others. Thanks!

Rob: I can't put the deleted comment back in, but my reply is such that it shouldn't matter too much, I hope.
