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 88 - The Randomness

I love grippli and I’ve done two of these frogmen already. This week’s random rolls bring us a character with a high wisdom and dexterity, and a decent intelligence and constitution. Although these rolls give us the very quintessential grippli – playing to its strengths – it also screams monk. The problem is I’ve already done a monk so we have to look to his background as serving a liege lord and following the deity of shepherds and see what we can build on from there.

Gender: Male
Nationality:Mwangi Expanse
Age:  24
Height: 1’ 11”
Weight: 28lbs
Alignment:Neutral Good

Str: 7
Dex: 16
Con:  13
Int: 14
Wis: 17
Cha: 11

Homeland: Forest
Parents: Both of your parents are alive.
Siblings: You have no siblings.
Circumstance of Birth: [Middle-Class Birth] You were born to the middle class, which includes merchants, artisans, and tradespeople. You likely grew up in a good-sized settlement, and one of your parents is likely associated with a guild or other trade organization. As a free person, you don't experience the bondage of serfdom or peasantry, but you also lack the privilege of the nobility.
Parent's Profession: Merchants
Major Childhood Event: [First Kill] You've had blood on your hands since your youth, when you first took the life of another creature. Whether this act repulsed you or gave you pleasure, it was a formative experience.

Influential Associate:[The Liege Lord] You became close with someone you were bound to serve, be it a minor lord or lady, master (in the case of a slave), prince or princess, king or queen. Though this person held power over you, she held you closer than a subject or servant. As a result, you're used to dealing with and being close to power, and your name is known among the ranks of the privileged.

Conflict: [Told a Lie] You deliberately made someone believe something that was not true to further your own goals.
Conflict Subject: Civic or military official.
Conflict Motivation: Jealousy.
Conflict Resolution: [Denial] You feel little if any regret, and deny the event mostly so others won’t judge you. Few if any know of your part in the conflict, and your constant denials are meant to keep it that way.
Deity/Religious Philosophy:Rowdrosh

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:[Attachment (Object)] You are attached to a precious possession with immense sentimental value and significance. Without it, you are no longer yourself and are prone to suffer from depression, moodiness, or aggressive behavior.

In the comments give us your ideas for how to make this into a fully realized character? What class would this character take up? What was his first kill? Who was his liege lord? Why does he worship a god of shepherds? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
