You know what I really love about GURPS and The Call of Cthulhu and similar games?
Characters can have *texture*.
When I've played FATE and FUDGE they were more broad strokes: you got a few points, BIG ONES, to define your character. And that elegance is COOL, don't get me wrong. You want someone able to sit down at a table, see a character sheet and know what someone is about? That was damn cool.
@Canageek On what axis do you mean "what they're all about?"
Because to me the most interesting parts of a character are the things that are untranslatable to a charsheet.
@starkatt See, that stuff is system agnostic for me, since as you said, you can't put that on a character sheet.
@Canageek :nod: just sayin', I could look at a sheet filled with like "has a dot in Navigation" and not feel like it conveyed significant things about a character, personally :)
