Sheets tend to provide a great framework for a character's power level, strengths, weaknesses and focus. A sheet also allows the player to gain a feeling advancement and a goal to work toward as they collect not only items, but also skills and powers. I mean its one thing to say, I unleash a fireball. Its another thing to watch as you spend points going from a flicker to an all out fireball. At the same time the Whitewolf system opens itself up to alot of min/maxing, restrictions, odd situations and slow downs. So I'm kind of a sheets on the table, dice out of sight person.
Also, I'd like to try and bring back a Solar I was using that was more of an inventor and technology type. I kind of draw inspiration from Final Fantasy type stuff with her if that is alright. Oddly enough also draw some inspiration from Warhammer 40k.
