I was bored enough to amuse myself by generating A Aslan Pc and I ended up fairly generating A Aslan that’s a very powerful fighter has loads of power, influence, wealth and territory, w hose his fathers heir and comes from 1 of the great clans

What I don’t get is why would A Aslan that’s a very powerful fighter has loads of power, influence, wealth and territory, whose his fathers heir and comes from 1 of the great clans become A Travelling adventurer. Here's the character I created

Character generation

Str 9+2 or 11 Dex 11-2 or 9, Endurance 10, Int 9 and Edu 8

His families lands

A 4 means he’s from A Great Clan, A 3 means he’s his fathers oldest child, The Ancestral roll is A 5+1 or 6 which means +2 Territory, Past roll 1’s A 12 which means +6 Territory and Past roll 2’s A 9 which means +3 Territory

And

So he’s got A Social Scale of 11, A Territory of 11 and that means that he gets Leadership /1 or +2

Rite of passage

I roll A Double 2 so his Rite of Passage is +5 and he also get Cr 1D6x1,000 or Cr 5,000

For his 3 Homeworld Skills I take Athletics –Wrestling /0 or +1, Melee –Unarmed /0 or +1 and Survival /0 or +1

Now for his career

I go for Ceremonial

He becomes A Clan Agent

Term 1

He gets Advocate /0 or +1, Diplomat /0 or +1, Investigate /0 or +1, Melee –Natural /0 or +1, Persuade /0 or +1 and Science /0 or +1

He survives and promotes

For surviving I roll on Clan Agent Specialist and get Deception /1 or +2 and for promoting I roll on development and he gets +1 Dex and reaching Rank 1 gets him Investigate /1 or +2

The event roll

It’s a 10, I expose him, I roll Melee –Natural, I roll 2D6+1 and get A 9, so I get +2 territory but I also gain A Enemy

Term 2

He survives and promotes

For surviving I roll on Clan Agent Specialist and get Stealth /1 or +2, for promoting I roll on Clan Agent Specialist and he gets Deception /2 or +3

The event roll

It’s a 6, I roll A 9 and have him gain Languages –K’ree /1 or +2

Term 3

He survives and promotes

For surviving I roll on Advanced Education and get Admin /1 or +2 and for promoting I roll on personal development and get +1 Str

The event roll

It’s a 7 or life event, I roll A 4 or Territory Challenge, I choose Melee –Natural, I roll 2D6+2 or get 10, that nets me +2 Territory

Term 4

He survives and promotes

For surviving I roll on Services and for promoting I also roll on Services and their both A 1, that gives me Diplomat /2 or +5 and surviving nets me Streetwise /1 or +2

The event roll

It’s a 3, I trade the secret in, this nets me 4 Clan Shares but I gain A Powerful Clan Elder as A Enemy

Term 5

He survives and promotes

For surviving I roll on Service Skills and he gets Melee –Natural /2 or +4 and for promoting I roll on Clan Agent Specialist and he gets Investigate +1 Dex and reaching Rank 5 gets him Admin /2 or +4

The event roll

It’s a 9, so I get +1 TER and The Languages –Hivers /1 or +2 Skill

Term 6

He survives and promotes

For surviving I roll on Clan Agent Specialist and get Gun Combat –Energy Rifles /1 or +2 and for promoting I roll on Service Skills and get Persuade /1 or +2

The event roll

It’s a 6, I roll A 9 and get Advocate /1 or +3

The mishap

I roll A 5, I defend, my Advocate /1 and Territory 16 gives me +4, I roll A 10 +4 or 14 or a pass of +6

And

As that’s a exceptional pass and as I was once A GM I decide that my character gets compensated to the sum of 1D6 or 4 Clan Shares, +1 Territory and been given enough training to get Medic /1 or +2

Benefits

I get 9

Cash

I choose to make no rolls for cash benefits

Other benefits

And

I admit that this is the 1^{st} time that I or anyone I've ever met or heard of has ever rolled more then 3 6’s in a row

A 5+1 or 6, A 1+1 or 2, 3+1 or 4, A 2+1 or 3, another 3+1 or 4 then 4 6’s +1 or 7’s in A Row

So he gets +2 Territory, +1 Edu, A Contact whose A Senior Merchant, A ceremonial Kinship and 16 Clan Shares

With his 24 Clan Shares he spends 7 to get A Corporation worth Cr 35,000,000 that nets him 5% of that per year, which means Cr 1,750,000 per year, Cr 80,000 in cash and 9 Ship Shares in whatever ship the Pcs start with

So

Here he is after character generation

Skills package

Its 1 The GM made and I take Pilot –Spacecraft /1 or +2 and Tactics -Naval /1 or +2

Stats

Str 12, Dex 10, End 10, Int 9, Edu 10, SC 19 and TER 19

Skills

Admin /2 or +3, Advocate /1 or +5, Athletics –Wrestling /0 or +2, Deception /2 or +3, Diplomat /2 or +6, Investigate /1 or +2, Languages –Hivers /1 or +2 and K’ree /1 or +2, Leadership /1 or +5, Melee –Melee /1 or +3 and Natural /1 or +3, Medic /1 or +2, Pilot –Spacecraft /1 or +2, Persuade /1 or +2, Science /0 or +1, Stealth /1 or +2, Survival /0 or +1 and Tactics –Naval /1 or +2

Belongings

Cash

Cr 80,000

Ship shares

9

Business’s

1 Corporation worth Cr 35,000,000 that nets him 5% of that per year, which means Cr 1,750,000 per year

Contacts

1 wealthy merchant

Enemies

1 of my Kin that acted dishonourably that I exposed

1 powerful clan elder that had a shameful secret that I exposed

Also

I decide that my characters territory is divided up in the following ways

1 with A value of 9 on Khusai

This means it’s a Estate of considerable size, that includes 6 large gardens and a hunting estate that’s 4 kilometres in size

1 with A Value of 6 on Stohyus

This means it’s a large structure capable of housing the entire family and most of the pride, that has 2 large and 1 small gardens and 1.5 miles of open space

1 with A Value of 4 on Arunissir

This means it’s a fairly large house that can house the entire and it also has a large garden

324edited September 2022It may help to know which system this is for, as I feel like many of us may need that frame of reference in order to really answer your question. That said, this reminds me a bit of the Birthright Campaign Setting for AD&D 2nd Ed: (whoops, broken link)

Neat.
