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 65 - The Randomness

This week’s random rolls have brought us a half-elf living in Absalom with Mwangi human stock. Born into bondage and trained at an academy, he worships the fey Eldest of entropy, reincarnation, and time. Physically frail and of average looks and personality where he really excels is intellect and awareness. So what will become of this character for Friday.

Gender: Male
Race: Half-Elf
Human Ethnicity: Mwangi (Bonuwat)
Nationality: Absalom
Age:  28
Height: 6’ 1”
Weight: 165 lbs
Alignment: True Neutral

Str: 11
Dex: 12
Con:  9
Int: 18
Wis: 15
Cha: 11

Homeland: Forest
Parents: Only your mother is alive.
Siblings: You have no siblings.
Circumstance of Birth: [Born into Bondage] You were born into slavery or servitude. Your parents are likely slaves or servants, or you were sold into slavery as an infant.
Parent's Profession: Tradespeople
Major Childhood Event: [Academy Training] You attended a private academy where you studied a number of skills and gained training in your current profession. Whether you were a brilliant student or a dropout, the university environment was your home for a good portion of your formative years.

Influential Associate: [The Fool] One of your close associates was a clown who mocked propriety and custom, instead engaging in wild and somewhat random actions from time to time. After a while, you learned that there was simple wisdom to this foolery—a careless worldview that taught you how to cast off concern.

Conflict: [Murder] You killed someone.
Conflict Subject: Clergy.
Conflict Motivation: Pressured or Manipulated.
Conflict Resolution: [No Guilt] Either guilt is for the weak, or you know you made the right decision. You might not openly brag about your part in the conflict, but you don’t deny it when confronted either.
Deity/Religious Philosophy: Shyka

Romantic Relationship(s): [Several Inconsequential Relationships] You have had many lovers but no long-lasting, meaningful relationships.
Drawback: [Religion] Your beliefs are of paramount importance in your life, whether you belong to a temple, follow a cult, or practice a religious philosophy independently. When others question or attack the beliefs, principles, relics, or structures of your faith, you respond with fury.

In the comments please tell us what character you would make with these disparate pieces information? What class would this Half-Elf naturally gravitate towards? What academy did he train at? Who did he kill? And why? Who had his family enslaved and how did he get free? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
