What's New In USR Version 2.0? This is the second version of the USR system, and while the game hasn't changed much there have been a couple of alterations. For one, the layout has had a lick of fresh paint. Hope you like it. The second is that using Specialisms during combat has changed to make it even more streamlined. Thirdly, narrative points have been adjusted to offer a more structured way of using them.
