I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Differing Starting Points Levels
The only way I could see this working is if it's pretty important to be able to adapt in game and take skills important to the plot - but 250 is a lot to spread around, and even if it works out that suddenly everyone's kidnapped on a spaceship and only those with 'room to grow' can get those skills, then it's a reverse hosejob...

-1 I'm sorry, this answer does not meet our site requirements for system-rec questions, which require, basically, "having done that or seen it done," not just "I'm sure my favorite system would be good for that."

Sure but we'd rather y'all take care of it with voting and such (edit, vote to delete, at least flag) within your rep - because every time we delete something people bitch about our mod-power-abuse.

I think answers that adhere to Good Subjective, Bad Subjective can be "best" and not "list" answers. See @TimothyAWiseman's answer - that's the kind of "here's some options and I've actually done them" that is a great answer to this kind of Q, as opposed to, to be fair, a lot of the other answers below that are pure opinion or have no backing details.
