No, I don't mean the Book of Nine Swords. That's where the themes come from.

But Bo9S does not come with the move customization thing. Where you stack modifications to one of the many basic actions available.

Are these LawfulNice's original ideas? Are they influenced by Exalted? Are there game systems with similar promises?
Now I feel that Mutants & Masterminds is at least one of the inspiration source for the Sword Schools in DtD.
