Indeed. For example, I gifted Holden with a copy of Dark Souls on Steam, because it was on sale and I know, and he knows, that he would hate Dark Souls.

And now it's in his Steam library forever.


Aw. But Dark Souls is such an awesome game.


I know! That's necessary for the joke to work!

"Universally applicable" doesn't mean universal in design, actually. For example, in 1e, the plans of the Sidereals are universally relevant to Solars, Lunars, Abyssals, and Dragon-Blooded, but that doesn't mean Sidereals come off as generic. You're making assumptions.
