As someone who values roleplay over skills maxing(efficiency) this has really appealed to me. Rather than selecting your race (i prefer species) you select values and then rank them in order of how important they are to you. This in turn dictates "who" your character will be, rather than "what".
I love this twist, it might make you lean to a species you have never played before, or perhaps some homebrew species. This is a life journey, and I believe is a complete gamechanger to actually encourage people to role play more.
