I loved the character creation system at first - "At last! A character 
creation system that lets me do real people (e.g. myself) properly as characters! I 
can take an appropriately large number of ditzy 1/2 pt skills without breaking 
the bank!"

Then Kromm came along and said "No, that's not the way you're suppose to do 
it." And he made it official. Bleah. 

(I didn't like the official GURPS magic system either. And I really hated the 
too-short 1 second turns. Not to mention the Official GURPS Attitude that a 
"cinematic" style of running a game must necessarily be *silly* - as evidenced 
by such things as the "bulletproof nudity" rule, the screw-job done on GURPS 
Supers, the new cover on the latest edition of GURPS Swashbucklers... etc. ad
