[[Old school|Role-playing games of the 1970s and 1980s]], such as ''Dungeons & Dragons'', used random numbers generated by dice rolls to assign statistics to player characters and then developed them using [[class]]es or [[life path]]s. ''GURPS'' drew inspiration from ''[[Champions]]'', a [[super-hero]] role-playing game with a flexible [[character creation]] system. Together with the ''[[HERO System]]'' (developed from the ''Champions'' game), ''GURPS'' was one of the first role-playing games in which characters were created by [[point-based|spending points]] to get attributes, skills, and advantages (such as the ability to cast magic spells). Additional points can be obtained by accepting lower-than-average attributes, disadvantages, and other limitations.
