    That sounds kind of similar to the old space RPG “Traveller”. You’d generate a complete backstory for your character – origin, early life, career, the financial and social situation that you ended up in, the lot.
    The problem is that it was heavy on randomness and light on decision-making, and there were some career paths that were more efficient, and some less so. So there was a tendency to end up in what was basically a late odd-numbered Star Trek movie, with three retired senior officers, all with a detailed history of their adventures and commendations – who had inexplicably teamed up with Harry Mudd to try to run guns to the Maquis while avoiding Organian intervention.
    The character creation process was so complete and so interesting that it was a reasonable replacement for actually playing the game.Report
