Epitome is a generic, universal system (perhaps system component is more accurate) that attempts to allow completely free-form ("continuous") character development utilizing whatever methodology that an individual player desires. The core system describes a conceptualized process to create a character for any roleplaying system. The goal is not to assign values or points to discreet abilities or skills, but to generate a holistic character definition. The process emphasizes "visual thinking" over a mechanical, numeric approach. While these open rules are not for everyone, they definitely help create a vibrant, realistic character (which may then be ported into Attributes and Values, if needed).
