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 93 - The Randomness

This week we have an interesting character to deal with. I tend not to dump stat personally and even when I feel a character should have a flaw I rarely go lower than an 8 in that attribute. The perils of random rolls is that you don’t really have that choice and this week we get a character with an extremely low stat. Between rolling and 8 and the racial negative, our tiefling has an intelligence of 6 making him not all that bright. Now we get to combine that with all the other information and see what we can get out of it. Probably not going to be a wizard though.

Gender: Male
Race: Tiefling (Foulspawn)
Human Ethnicity:  Varisian
Nationality: Lastwall
Age: 79
Height: 6’ 3”
Weight: 181
Alignment: Neutral Good

Str: 14
Dex: 12
Con:  12
Int: 6
Wis: 16
Cha: 16

Homeland: Frontier
Parents: Only your mother is 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: [Magical Gift] When you were a child, you found, stole, or were given a magic item that gave you an extraordinary ability. You may have used this item for mischief, crime, or good. Since that time, magic items have always held a special fascination for you.

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: [Major Theft] You stole expensive items.
Conflict Subject: Spellcaster.
Conflict Motivation: Pressured or Manipulated.
Conflict Resolution: [Mixed Feelings] Sometimes you regret the conflict, but other times you feel as if you didn’t have a choice in the matter or that you made the right decision. Most of the time, you just avoid thinking about the conflict. Only you and maybe a select few people know of your involvement.
Deity/Religious Philosophy: Milani

Romantic Relationship(s): [Several Inconsequential Relationships] You have had many lovers but no long-lasting, meaningful relationships.
Drawback: [Self-Doubt] No matter what you do, it’s never good enough. You cannot help but see in your victories many little defeats and failures. If you were stronger, smarter, faster, or more powerful, maybe you could be better. However, stuck in the body and mind you have, you feel you’re destined to fail.

(Trait) Artisan
(Trait) Frontier-Forged
(Trait) Magical Talent
(Trait) Mercenary
(Trait) Merchant
(Trait) Talented Organizer
(Drawback) Doubt

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 his father die? Why does he have no siblings? What made him take up worship of Milani? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
