Whats to say we have to have experience points in a game?
I was wondering if would hurt a system is if all the character advancement was based on how long the characters played or age. It seems to me that concept of an earned advancement through points is not inherently even. And if you are doing it in such a manner to keep everyone even then there is not point in having an earned point advancement.
Just a thought. I would be interested to see what other people thought.
