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 86 - The Randomness

Some times its fun to get back to basics. This week we wll take our random rolls back to one of the core races, a half-orc. I’ve done a few half-orcs and I’ve quite enjoyed writing all of them up and this one is looking to be no different. I’m amused most that he is a 6’ 7” near 300lb monstrosity but he has no real strength and is quite lithe for his size. The fact he worships a goddess that is mainly followed in a far off land by the serpentine naga should also be an fun bit to tie into the background. Want to see how I do it? Tune in Friday.

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 Subject:Spellcaster.

In the comments give us your ideas for how to make this into a fully realized character? What class would this character take up? How did he die? Why does he follow a naga goddess? What divine energy touched him? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
