CRB is a repository of all the creative things that float through my mind about the RPG Pathfinder. Two major features are random character generation and building characters based on the god they worship. Anything that seems like it adds to the creative aspects of the game will pop up from time to time, including location descriptions, adventure ideas and even short stories. CRB won't just be my own creativity, it will open the floor to anyone who has an idea sparked by what I present to you.

Character Exploration Thirteen: The Randomness

four six sided dice on a red background, Random Roll
Male Human

Age: 20
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 185 lbs.

So I hadn’t really done a human yet so here it is. The thing with humans (Half-Elves and Half-Orcs) is you need to choose where you’re stat bonus goes. To that end I have decided that it should go either in the highest or lowest stat. I had two highest so I flipped a coin and the bonus went into Con.
Str 7
Dex 12
Con 18
Int 12
Wis 11
Cha 16

The background I wrote for this will be posted Friday at 8am. But what kind of character would you make based on these rolls? What class would you pick? Do you have a background in mind looking at these pieces of information? Share with us and let us see your creative juices flow.


  1. kinseist from the new occult adventures book they are con based and depending on the elements you choose very versatile.

  2. This had been mentioned on on of the Pathfinder FB pages I post on, not sure if it was by you at this point though. I'll take a look at the Occult book at some point, but really it hasn't held any interested me and I haven't even skimmed it. So when Friday's write up comes around I can safely say he won't be a kineticist.

    But I like where you're going with it Daniel, what kind of Kineticist do you think our human will be given his background?
