Hmm, a rule set which boils down character skills to the bare essentials

Hurting
Gabbing
Mucking About

I look at it from a Real Life perspective: things like taunting come natural to some but it is also something you can learn to get better at over time, which makes it a skill. Anyone can taunt, but not everyone will be good at it. Just like intimidation...

Shooter McGavin - "I eat pieces of sh!5 like you for breakfast!"

Billy Madison - "You eat sh!5 for breakfast?"

At this point, you might as well have two catch all skills and completely screw with the game:

Offensive and Socialize... lol

I like how things work in SW, cause in real life I'm a great shot, but throw like a girl. ;p On the social side, I'm not intimidating or clever enough to taunt people effectively unless I know them real well, but can persuade people by being friendly and logical.

It emulates / manages social and combat factors pretty well for a pen and paper RPG, and allows for character flexibility, while staying FFF.

I suspect he was referring to the game.
