Personally, attaching any coded ramifications that go beyond flavor to RPP seems like a bad idea, in my mind. You can drum up any number of justifications for why Player X should have 5 RPP and Player Y should only have 2 or perhaps 3, but Player X is the type of player who will typically either not spend or will regain all of their RPP in relatively short order. Player Y either does not have 5 RPP because they go beyond notice, or they are frequent RPP spenders.
When the only thing coming out of either players' respective situation is what race they're playing, rather than what skills, stats and equipment they start the game with, it's fairly impossible to cry foul on any of that, really. When the difference between 3 RPP and 5 RPP is stepping into the game with skills higher than Talented (which I don't think should happen at any point), then you start running into problems inherent within the system*.
Also, just to point out to Nimrod, as it's been stated earlier in reference to Atonement and its derivatives, the point selection that seemed most popular with people here who have experience with it anyway, meant that selecting four skills would usually result in PCs entering the game with their core set at familiar. The way RPP worked at the time, they could even get one, or maybe two at Talented out of chargen, and they couldn't really get any of them past Talented either.
I feel I should bold this part of the post, for awareness, but there's literally no reason at any point that a new character should enter a game with a skill higher than Talented. With the way roles work, and the behavior of players who happen to have their hands on RPP, they will frequently re-enter the game after retirement or death with the RPP to take a high-end role. I guess if you balanced the system by removing Role-boosts and made carry-over the coded boon of RPP characters, that could work, if it was hard capped to a degree.
*Such problems may not even be related to the RPP system or admins awarding RPP, but the behavior of each player.
I hope you die right now, will you drink my chemical?
See, the thing that I admire about WorkerDrone is that he's an optimist!
