"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

Central Casting - Heroes Now!

This is the modern version of Heroes of Legend. This is designed to help give depth and a level of uniqueness to characters in 20th century games. It was released in 1991 so they might have wanted to include 21st century characters as well but that is a minor point. This does work much the same as it's predecessor. I am not sure I ever sued it for player characters and as intended but it does work well for plot ideas and to help make unique NPCs.

From the cover:

Unflatten your cardboard characters! Breathe life into your heroes of the modern age. Give depth, motivation and a sense of personal history to every player character and NPC in your campaign! NOT for Game Masters only!
