comment How to determine how much plot guidance is too much?
The OP goes into more detail than just "How much" and I am responding by showing that complete character freedom requires the same amount of works as a linked series of adventures. This boils the choice to matter of taste and circumstance. I am editing my answer to be clearer on this point.

comment Alternatives to D&D and Pathfinder
I didn't realize they were still selling for a $1 but Legend would be a good but slightly more complex alternative to OpenQuest. Also note the monster guide is separate for Legend.
