BESM stands for "Big Eyes, Small Mouth," a term that refers to the anime inspiration in creating the game. BESM d20 in particular is a point-based alternative to the d20 system, in which players are given "character points" instead of levels to build their characters. It works out to about 10 points...

I still recommend Visions of Escaflowne ; you say in the book these things aren't "the advanced mecha of Japanese anime," but Escaflowne's large, lumbering Guymelefs have just as much maintenance concerns and piloting capability as the lumbering beasts depicted in Dragonmech, but in Dragonmech's ter...

There is no more psionic combat! None! Soulknife is now a base class, as is the Wilder, your "get all DBZ on their asses with the screaming and the exploding of things" class.

I poked around with this idea a little more since I came up with it - the idea was tha "NPC" classes are very much weaker than base core classes, with the difference between a warrior and a fighter of the same level being more drastic.

Yeah, I noticed. I do like the look of the 3.0 books (I can even excuse the reflection in the little gemstones of the office and fellow who's scanning the sculpture, only since it still manages to look cool).

Hopefully they'll pull off something neat....oh, who am I kidding, I know they will!

I use WotC's products every so often - Book of Exalted Deeds is pretty neat.
