The Weird Stuff I Find

I was cleaning up my RPG folder on my computer this week, a never ending process, and stumbled across this text file dating from 1997. It appears to be some sort of classless advancement system for AD&D 2nd edition, but I have no memory of writing it. It also appears to be implementing spell use based on a point system. It looks a bit incomplete too (some of the XP costs near the end are a bit sketchy too). Look familiar to anyone?

Advancement

The follow rules are applied to advancement:

Each player specifies their top 5 priorities for advancement. Experience is divided according to the following breakdown:
  1. 40%
  2. 25%
  3. 15%
  4. 10%
  5. 10%
