The part that I edited was very much a point of view from one type of player. There are plenty of people that like systems that are rules heavy and even some of those play D20 systems.
Just want to say that "Sub sole nihil novi est" means "There is nothing news under the sun", e.g. new in plural. The correct phrase is "Sub sole nihil novum est", with New in singular neuter. I fixed that on the main page also, sorry ;)
