With Angband variants, I hack at the game, or fiddle with preexisting skill systems... But abandon my characters out of boredom 90% of the time. I barely ever play my own Angband variant.
With BoE, I waste inordinate amounts of time on modeling PCs and parties, even though BoE's bugs and design flaws make most of it not matter.
... I don't want a game where you are an adventurer. I want a game where you train adventurers, and then send them out to do stuff.
Or maybe an RPG that is all plot, dialog, and skill allocation, with fighting managed by the game AI. Like, Blades of Exile meets Oregon Trail.
I wonder if this is just me being weird, or if there's actually a demand for such games.

SoT: You'd be happy, too, if you were such a clever spider.
Ephesos: In conclusion, yarr.

I can't think of any RPG where you're the trainer sending out units to do battle. The closest that you may find is something like Civilization or Age of Empires where you've got the God level view, building up your civilization/cities & on a strategic level sending out units/armies to do battle for you. Even that though isn't exactly what you're talking about.

Excepting that instead of fighting there's detective work going on, that sounds like Black Closet. You play the president of the Student Council of a girls high school, and you send your minions out to stop things threatening the schools reputation, and don't really do anything personally in-game, just lots of stuff in plot.

That's the premise of Majesty except that games possible even more 'hands off'. It's an RTS: you build the stereotypical rpg town and post the bounties/rewards.
Probably not what you're looking for as there's no character building input from the player but it's one of the all time classic games so I thought I'd mention in case you weren't aware of it.
Can find the HD edition on GoG https://www.gog.com/...majesty_gold_hd and it's often on sale on steam.
