Yes, the whole idea is that personality points don't really do anything. The only reason they'd exist at all is to give someone a reason to think about their personality, and possibly give admins an at-a-glance reference for interacting with this PC.

Since I favor a limited pool, I'm more okay with the personality traits having some across-the-board sort of effects, but I do think those effects would be a nuisance to (a) come up with and (b) balance ... and I don't think they're really necessary.

More or less in-line with what's being talked about with the music skill, here -- if you don't have the RP to support a personality trait, you don't get a benefit from it (because its only benefits are RP-based, not code-based).

I know this is wrong, but I still find it hilarious. Let's fight off the spiders together?

Hey I just webbed you,
And this is crazy,
But here's Fëanor's Silmarils,
So call your Balrogs maybe.
(Morgoth):
I had a part in everything.
Twice I destroyed the light and twice I failed.
I left ruin behind me when I returned.
But I also carried ruin with me.
She, the mistress of her own lust.
