How about a system where everyone has a fixed personal pool of
points to allocate to abilities/skills/equipment/etc. Or maybe the
pool grows for the first week of play up to a maximum size. Regardless,
eventually the pool tops out and you can't, for example, get any
better as a swordman without dropping your ability to cast spells.
I don't see any advancement in such a system, but there is certainly
character growth and change.
