Anyway, I just bought BESM and BESM Space Fantasy the other day after holding out for several years. I'm going through the process of building a 45 point test character at the moment. I find the process to be relatively quick, even for a first-timer like me. As to whether or not I'll get to actually play in BESM remains to be seen at this point, but the amount of creative freedom given to GMs is wonderful. I haven't seen this much freedom since my old D&D and AD&D 2nd Edition days.
