Welcome to The Alchemist of Istanbul, a role-playing game for up to six players and a Director, based on the SIGNOS computer role-playing system. Although The Alchemist of Istanbul can be played by itself, the story in it forms a prequel to the SIGNOS computer drama Daughter of Serpents.
This tabletop RPG used a computer game to generate characters. Since the DOS system 5.25" floppy disk system needed to generate characters - not to mention the software - is difficult to find these days, I worked up a basic process for generating characters through "standard" methods.
This was done for Caroline Berg's Revisionist Challenge, 2016.
