Character Backgrounds - Roll Dice, Pick a Category

I'm trying to track down a character background system I read somewhere but can't remember.

The basic ideas is that there were, I think, 6 categories and each category had 6 options in it. You rolled a bunch of 6 siders and then then characters picked one dice at a time that let them choose that corresponding entry from one of the categories.

So you might have something like (this example is pretty lame):

Family: Both parents living, Father Dead, Mother Dead, Orphan, Adopted, Demon Spawn
Alignment: LG, CG, NG, G, N, CE, LE
Age: Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Old, Really Old

If I grab the "1" die, I can take the first entry from any category.

That ring a bell for anyone? Where'd I get it from?
