Do I get stats? Do I not get stats? Do I need to put that label upon myself? No, I don't and that's why this post won't be short form.
I like what stats do and I like to play with them, none of this would get restricted with the UI changes. I like an Acrobatics stat that enables me to jump higher and longer distances, I like Dexterity that makes my character react faster, and Intelligence that enlightens the mystery of the Arcane Plane to my character.
