Well, all of that sounds very good but a classless and level less
system as far as I have seen is
kind of like this:
1. don't even claim a class or race
everybody is the same thing.
2. you don't even base skills/spells
on levels, base the abilities to
learn/use them on dice rolls
3. when learning a skill/spell the cost is more
expensive as you go along *the more xp you get*
