It's super hard to win and takes luck, but the theme is hard to resist!

This is a testament to how well my idea for rendering arbitrary HTML for character sheets works. I just built out a full HTML version of the GUTS+ character sheet and just pasted it into the sheet editor, and boom! It barely fits into the bounds for the width, but it does actually work!
