I'm sorry to have snapped, it just sometiomes seems like people aren't giving their imagination reign. I won't say that the AP system "allows you to roleplay your fights" or any nonesense like that, but I think it gives the players a bit more control over what their characters are doing. I haven't seen another game system that allows you to say *mechanically* "I'm going all-out" or "I'm feeling him out". Sure, in RQ you could *say* it, but the mechanics didn't *support* it. Rolemaster at least gave you the opportunity to use your skill to augment offense or defense.
Personally, I think the system is good, and it appeals to my sense of having a say in how my characters are fighting/debating/whatever.
