Re: Houserules: Tier 3, Simply
Certainly a chronological listing of life events can lose me - deep as a puddle and all. I actually built a vecna-blooded human factotum infiltrator for two games. You can compare their writeups if you like - Here's a 2300 word one, and here's a 2000 word one. They're different in format, and neither is a chronological listing of significant life events.

This is probably the longest "listing life events" backstory I've written, at ~600 words, designed to start play with the character in a bind.
