comment Are there maximums for stats (such as by class)?
You're right, that's ridiculous, because the 1e AD&D DMG clearly states on page 11 under Generation of Ability Scores, Method III that "3d6 are rolled 6 times for each ability, and the highest score in each category is retained for that category.", not 5 times. (I couldn't believe this until I checked myself. Seems a bit whacked out to me, but it is indeed in the manual.)

comment What collective chat program can feature both the host's webcam AND his screenshare?
Note: When sharing your whole screen, beware of the recursive video effect. That's when you bring up the image of your desktop in an app window on your desktop. The cascade of endless images updating within images can be difficult to get out of on some systems.

comment Which significant games quantify personality traits?
@HeyICanChan Yeah, that occurred to me. The rest of the character traits in C+ are dials, so the system rang true for me on assigning values to abstractions. Unfortunately in this specific case the personality elements are handled differently than everything else in the system. Having said that, Cortex+ is all about hacking the mechanics. There's no reason you couldn't assign a die to your Distinctions for use in the positive cases instead of just taking a flat d8.

comment Which significant games quantify personality traits?
@gomad I didn't include those because the Values aren't character specific, they're setting values, like traditional D&D Strength, Intelligence, etc. I suppose once you combine them with a relationship they're a bit more tailored, but I interpreted the OP as looking for character-specific personality qualities. And the use of Distinctions is consistent across C+ Action, Drama, and Heroic.
