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.

All In A Days Work

Followers of Khepri

Illustration by Luis Perez
Many gods have portfolios that represent heroes and great good or evil, but the little guy needs a little divine representation as well. Khepri is a god of the Osirian pantheon whose purview is freedom, the rising sun, and work. His followers are mostly laborers and peasants, but how do this trickster god’s followers organize themselves? Today we find out.

As always, let us imagine we are sitting at our theoretical gaming table. Our imaginary GM sets out the rules for the game we will play. In this game, we are to make a follower of Khepri. The character does not need to be a divine caster, just a devotee of the Humble Hand. What character do you make?

The Crop Tenders

Work is paramount to the followers of Khepri but that doesn’t mean that those who toil can’t use a helping hand every once in a while. This small sect of Khepri followers are mostly clerics and druids who use their abilities to help those who work the fields to better produce their crops. They respect those who work hardest and will grant their aid first and foremost to those who are willing to put in the work.

There are no strictures on who can join this sect. Although they are mostly of classes that can use magic to aid in crop growth, those aren’t the only members. Innovators in irrigation, agriculture, and animal husbandry also find a home among these followers of the Humble Hand.

The Little Bites

Peasants may be on the bottom rung of society but that doesn’t mean they should be treated like less than animals; at least not according to the followers of Khepri. The Little Bite is a sect of followers of the Humble Hand who seek to humble those who abuse the people who put in hard work on their behalf. When calamity befalls you after you whip a farmer who actually put in a good day’s work, that is probably a work of the Little Bites.

The Little Bites uphold the trickster nature of their deity. Rogues, bards, and clerics are all common, but anyone who can successfully cause trouble for overreaching nobles is welcome. The tricks of the Little Bites are usually not deadly, just an inconvenience. Only when someone’s superiority over those who serve causes too much pain for their underlings does whole sect take notice and cause that person to fall from grace.


Undead revel in the darkness and fear the rising of the sun. As Khepri takes the sunrise itself as part of his domain, many of his followers despise the undead who fear it. The Dawncallers cleave to this ideal and were formed to destroy the undead things that so often attack the poor and helpless first.

Clerics, warpriests, and paladins of Khepri make up the largest portion of this sect. One of the few sects that has a requirement for entrance in that its supplicants must have done battle with the undead before applying for entry. The Dawncallers often use fire as their most potent weapon against the walking dead.

Even those who toil must be divinely represented. Who is your follower of Khepri? Why have they chosen to dedicate themselves to the Humble Hand? Where does their devotion come from? Let me know in the comments.
