"Banking" stunt points is something I've seen elsewhere and the more I see it the more I like it as an alternative to DA's problem of random opportunities for stunts. It's something worth giving some more thought.

Yes. Technically. I'm tinkering around with a classless system based on work by the work of DracoDruid with a lot of my own fiddly bits stabbed into it. Maybe if I get it into a more coherent form I'll make a thread about it and see if you all think it can stand on its own.

I guess we all knew that the magic system would likely get reskinned as a psionic power system, didn't we? If this question were directed at me I'd most assuredly have a story
reason for those powers and why certain people had them and others didn't, but I'm not incined to have it mechanically tied to a DA-style Background.
