Bodybuilder example:
If someone wanted their character to be the strongest person in the universe, with a Strength of F, using this system, this would be a something they would have to dedicate their life to.
It would take all their characteristic points to get to a Strength of D, (with 4 character points left over.) And after a thirty year career of nothing but strength training, they would spend 29 of their 30 skill points to bring their Strength to F, with 5 skill points left over, (including the 4 left over from buying characteristics,) to spend on, perhaps, five level-1 skills, and have a final UPP of F55555. Assuming, of course, they lost no characteristics due to aging.
