I'm looking to gather a list of Long-Form Generational RPGs, specifically games that have explicit support for characters growing old, having children, managing estates/business/etc through time. Also by Long-Form I mean more than handful of sessions.

Core books, and supplements which add this on are all fair game.

The earliest game I can think of in which you not only playing a character, but their house, through-out the Arthurian Legend.

Buried the LoreMaster book are the rules, and setup for generational play. Though, I'm sure this is more useful for human characters, than elves or dwarves.

4. RPG: Ars Magica (5th Edition) [Average Rating:7.77 Overall Rank:22]
The assumed form of play is in a covenant, a gathering of magi who band together for research and mutual protection. While the magi have access to longevity spells that extend their lives, many of the minor characters will be born, have children, and die over the course of a story.
