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 101 - The Randomness

A Dhampir child born to a peasant family in Andoran is the base for this week’s character. A good spread of stats in everything except for intelligence gives us a lot of options too. Sometimes though the paradox of choice makes these things even harder to make because you have so many paths you can take. The question is which path will I take? Which path will you take?

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 was a Dhampir born to this family? Which family member does she hate? How did he end up in a formal academy? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
