That's a mechanism for a completely different game. (World of Darkness?) If you like it, go with that game. There are even easier ones, e.g. PDQ where you allocate points among freeform "qualities", e.g. "Order of Hermes: Good", and you're done. (Assuming everyone agrees on the definition and limitations of the Order of Hermes.)
