@craigmaloney I wouldn't go so far as to use Fate (bad FUDGE ripoff that it is), but Steve Jackson never understood the HERO system he was ripping off.
HERO explicitly states "a disadvantage which doesn't disadvantage you is worth no points". If you make a pyromaniac egotistical dwarf with increased running, reach, and flame-resistance, that stuff's all just description, not points.
@mdhughes I quite like FUSGE and Fate. I think they're rather complementary. And I think GURPS 3e and 4e really tried to accentuate that disadvantages are supposed to figure into play, but creating a laundry-list of disadvantages means at some point they're not getting played.
