Lore Sheets (ala Weapons of the Gods)

I read the Weapons of the Gods RPG recently. I’m not a huge fan of the system but I’m still interested in trying out the game. This is due entirely to Lore Sheets.

Lore Sheets are an interesting system design in which players spend points to learn information about the game’s setting during character generation. This allows the players to influence the game by using character creation to tell the GM what parts of the game they are interested in.

As far as game design is concerned, I think this is one of the most impressive developments in roleplaying games in years. So impressive, in fact, that I’ve been redesigning the Amber Diceless RPG from the ground up in my head all day.

Now I’ve just got to put it all down on paper!
