Generic Universal Roleplaying System

Steve Jackson created a system that would allow a game of anything the players imagination could build to be run.

There are a huge number of supliments for this game system. They are incredibly varied, ranging from swords and magic to B Movie Sci Fi thrillers.

Now this is a good idea but I have a number of reservations about this game system. It uses five attributes to describe a character, but almost all skills use only two of them. This leads to a strange setup for almost all of the characters.

So I do like the idea this system represents but find it a bit flawed when you actually come to play it.
