Default Playing Kingdom hearts in Gurps

I been trying to sell the idea of gurps to my friends for awhile now, and one of the ideas that been molling in my head was the series kingdom hearts which a lot of my friends like and had played in free form rps in the setting in the past. So a couple of questions.

1. Is gurps even the right game for this setting, or should I go with something more cinimatic like hero or savage world?

2. The keyblade, I kind of split if it should be signature gear or should be stated like an intelligent weapon. I do remember one remark in the game "The child's strength is not his own." which could give the idea sora fighting prowles is more because of the weapon rather then his own limited experince in play fighting. While there is an art to keyblading, effectly sora did the first 2 games without any of the fancier tricks keyblader properly trained knew....which kind is like winning against master martial artist using only untrained street brawling.

3. Is there like a big list of disney charecter with gurp stats? it would save a lot of time on prep work if so.

4. what books should I have, I have the basic three, charecter, campaign, powers, and I also have, tactical shooting, psionics,mysteries,space,spaceship,biotech,lowtech ,infinite world, fantasy, thautmolgiy

To show a little leg work I done on my own limited experience here is my stats for the basic heartless type shadow.

5 str(-50),12dex(+40),5iq(-100),5 ht (-50) -3 SM/Advantage:Dark vision(+20)combat reflex(+15) detect( spiritual heart)(+20) doesn't breath(+20) injury tolerance diffuse(+100) shadow form(+50) unkillable 3 (achilies heel keyblade) (+135)/disadvantage: Bestial (-15) uncontrollable appiette (spiritual heart) (-15)/
total cost: +192

1. I'm not sure there's anything GURPS is wrong for. Except settings where one character gains permanent power from eating your enemies' souls, it struggles with that.

2. I would stat it as an Innate Attack with gadget modifiers. Maybe Based on ST would be appropriate, maybe not. I don't remember the setting too well, but if it's also a person, it should also be an Ally and statted appropriately.

3. Not to my knowledge.

4. I like Martial Arts, but it sounds like you probably have enough. Actually, Martial Arts would probably help for "fancier keyblader tricks."

Well I heard that gurps has issues in high level supers, some of the things in this game series might qualify for that.

I been meaning to get martial arts, it just seems to be a hard book to get a hold of and I'll probably have to submit to getting a pdf.

I would probably go for BESM for such a game. If nothing else than for the anime-style.

If you don't know BESM it's a lot like GURPS just a bit simpler and faster and less detailed.

Okay regardless of whether or not it a good system this game will happen.

So I made a new heartless template and later I going to have to make a lot more of these. Might need to edit the first template too on the shadow.)

Soldier heartless

Str:8(-20),Dex:12(+40),IQ:5(-100),ht:8(-20) per:8(+15)/advantage: Sharp Claws(+5),combat reflex(+15),damage resistant 3 (Skull only)(+5),dark vision(+25),detect(spiritual heart)(+20), indomitable(+15)injury tolerence diffuse(+100),unkillable 3 (Achilles heel keyblade)(+135)/disadvantage: Bestial (-15), cannot speak (mute) (-25) Uncontrollable appetite (spiritual heart)(-15)/Technique, Jump kick(Heartless)

I wouldn't apply it on one comment, there should be more evidence of sentience. I only played the original game in full and a little bit of Chain of Memories and KH2 so maybe there's more evidence I don't know of.
