GURPS.... excuse me ;) I always assume that talents like Priest and
Veteran carry lots of baggage with them and if players want minor skills
they have to buy one of the packages. I like to think each talent is a
significant portion of a persons life and even my players didn't care
for the GURPS effect of too many damn talents or skills per character.
It makes the characters less unique and valuable. These 1/4 and 1/2
point skills are one of the things that turned me off of GURPS. Feel
free to run them in your campaign though.
