Recently we’ve started a maid game here on the stack and we have a huge disparity of stats between the players, one of them has barely average stats, while some of the other players are pushing fours and sixes in abilities because of great rolls during generation. We have found that the standard rule that characters with good stats get fewer maid powers is insufficient.

Would a point buy system work in Maid RPG while still being able to attain the same level of play in Maid games? Using the favor base presented in the handbook I’ve come up with the following figures for point buy statistics. The standard array in Maid would be 1,1,2,2,3,3 or you could buy points at the following costs, with 200 starting favor:

0: 0 points

1: 10 points

2: 30 points

3: 60 points

4: 100 points

With the stipulation that any favor points not used during point buy are lost. Does a system like this function properly in the Maid system provided the Maid characteristics (Boyish, Sexy, Lolita, Pure, etc.) were rolled after (and only after) a character has distributed their points as they wish?
