Published by Burning Wheel. Comprehensive with regard to character options for creation and action, dice pool game, rumoured to have evolved from Shadowrun.
The game is often introduced in stages. The rules have been written to support this. Hub and Spokes is the first stage.
Belief challenges, life paths, and rules like "Let it Ride", and "Duel of Wits" differentiate Burning Wheel from other role-playing games.
Mouse Guard, Torchbearer, and Burning Empires are other systems related to Burning Wheel.
Life path based character creation is not part of Hub and Spokes; however, pre-generated characters should be simple enough to find.
