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.

Random Roll 48 - The Randomness

A Gnome out of time. From the past or future this character will be from some when else. Smart, charismatic, hardy he has survived death at least once. Only truly comfortable around other gnomes will his penchant for destroying things make him welcome in the here and now?

Gender: Male
Race: Gnome
Nationality: The River Kingdoms
Age: 58
Height: 3’ 6”
Weight: 41lbs
Alignment: Neutral Evil

Str: 10
Dex: 9
Con:  16
Int: 15
Wis: 12
Cha: 17

Homeland: Non-Gnome Town or Village
Parents: Both your parents are alive
Siblings: You have no sibling.
Circumstance of Birth: [Born out of Time] You were born in a different era, either the distant past or the far future. Some event has displaced you from your time, and the ways and customs of the present seem strange and alien to you.
Parent's Profession: Serfs/Peasants
Major Childhood Event: [Died] You died, or came so close to death that you walked the boundary between the realms of the living and the dead. Having passed from life's domain once, you have a unique perspective on life, perhaps even a greater appreciation for it—or maybe your experience caused you to reject all trivial things, focusing only on matters of true import.

Influential Associate: [The Mercenary] With this person, there was always a cost. No deed was done making a trade for something of equal or greater value. Whether this individual's actions tended toward good, evil, or pure balance, he was always fair in his dealings. You respected this trait and it influenced your own philosophy.

Conflict: [Destruction] You destroyed someone else’s property.
Conflict Subject: Nobel
Conflict Motivation: Family
Conflict Resolution: [You Enjoyed It] Those who cling to petty morals have no understanding of what true freedom and power is. The fact is, you enjoyed your part in the conflict and would do it all over again if the opportunity presented itself. Many people know of your misdeed, and they also realize your complete lack of remorse.
Deity/Religious Philosophy: Yhidothrus
Romantic Relationship(s): [Experience but No Substantial Relationships] You’ve had a fling or two, but have so far shied away from any ties or commitments.
Drawback: [Race] You are truly comfortable only around others of your race, and you have a hard time putting faith or trust in those of races different from your own.

(Trait) Animal Friend
(Trait) Fearless Defiance
(Trait) Mercenary
(Trait) Poverty-Stricken
(Trait) Scholar of the Great Beyond
(Story Feat) Arisen
(Drawback) Xenophobic

In the comments please tell us what character you would make with these disparate pieces information? What class would this Gnome out of time naturally gravitate towards? Who is this worshiper Yhidothrus, The Ravager Worm? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.

The CRB not only brings you the creative content you desire but makes you look inside for your own creativity. If you feel both inspired and pushed to created please consider supporting your favorite content provider (that’s me) by pledging as little as $1 on my Patreon (link). If you don’t want to miss a beat make sure you sign up to get the CRB pushed directly to your e-reading device with Kindle Subscriptions (link) through Amazon. And to keep up with my other musings and thoughts you can follow the CRB on Google+, Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter.
