For traits, I feel like they could be simplified more. To quote Matsiyan:

I am very uncomfortable assigning points to game skills. In the RP everyone should be a hero capable of almost anything technically.

While we all shouldn’t be capable of everything, we could all be considered competent in a good number of things (this is a military, after all), while any traits we assign to the characters are the ones we’re considered especially good or bad at.

For Attributes, the ones I feel would work the best are pulled directly from Traveler: Strength, Dexterity, Endurance, Intelligence, Education, Social Status/Standing. We could easily substitute that last one for something like “Military Rank”

Gifts and Faults we should probably be very stingy with, as it feels like they could start to over-complicate things.
