Hey now, don't go insulting FUZION here!  D&D 3e has no more similarity
to FUZION than it does to Ars Magica, Fading Suns, or any other system
than adds stat + skill + dice roll vs target number.

It's still class and level based, and crippled by a poorly implemented magic
system, but at least they tried.  They could have done a lot more to make
the game a "state-of-the-art" RPG, but then they would have lost their core

But, anyway, this isn't related to TFT, so I'll drop it here.
