    And I've used that step-back/redo feature alot in the 12LP mode. It is nice to have that kind of control over the creation process.

    I mean, cool.

    But re-rolling repeatedly to get "perfect" builds isn't in the spirit of the system.

    If you want a point-buy character, use the point-buy system.

    That's all I'm saying.

    I don't use it to create a perfect build. More so to create a character that sort-of fits with what I imagined them to be. I've never had a perfect set-up anyways but I got a good set of skills for what I had in mind.

    Sure.

    Which is what the 12pt buy is for.

    I just don't understand why people don't use that if they don't want a randomly generated build.

    I imagine mostly to avoid seriously anomalous results that would create a character with a really inexplicable story and skill set. I know I've seen some really odd stuff come out of that generator with multiple sourcebooks enabled.

    I get that.

    What I don't get is the reluctance to use the 12pt buy build system which a lot of people seem to have.

    Probably the fact that it requires GM permission, as per the tooltip.

    I feel like most GMs are going to have a LOT more issue with "I just re-rolled that bit 'till I got what I wanted".

    the 12-pts build also hang in the uplift path sometime. but at least it is close to be functional :)

    what i don't like of 12pt is some steps i'd rather roll. so i just roll it myself and pick one.
