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 99 - The Randomness

A daughter born to a father who already had two boys, but her mother was not what she seemed. Such is the beginning of all changeling lives. A middle class life in the Mana Wastes is still a harsh life. An average intelligence and wisdom leaves a lot of the casting choices most common to changelings out, although her high charisma still leaves her many options. A follower of the goddess of illusion and mystery opens up some interesting background choices and class options as well.

Gender: Female
Race: Changeling
Human Ethnicity: Mwangi (Zenj)
Nationality: Mana Wastes
Age: 19
Height: 5’ 9”
Weight: 120
Alignment: True Neutral

Str: 12
Dex: 12

Int: 11

Homeland: Town or Village
Parents: Both of your parents are alive.
Siblings: You have 2 biological 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: [Mentorship/Patronage] A mentor or patron took an interest in your development and volunteered to train or sponsor you. This creature's motives might not be entirely clear, but without its influence you would not be who you are.

Influential Associate: [The Hunter] This person was a lone wolf who nonetheless cautiously allowed you to become a member of her solitary pack. She taught you how to thrive on your own in spite of the many perils and natural dangers of your native environment.

Conflict: [Humiliation] You publicly humiliated or scandalized someone with either true or slanderous information.
Conflict Subject: Child or young person.
Conflict Motivation: Jealousy.
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: Sivanah

Romantic Relationship(s): [Several Inconsequential Relationships] You have had many lovers but no long-lasting, meaningful relationships.
Drawback: [Pride] You present an image to the world that can’t be tarnished. When someone questions your motives, criticizes your actions, or insults your honor or pride, you question his friendship or count him among your enemies until he makes amends.

In the comments give us your ideas for how to make this into a fully realized character? What class would this character take up? Who was the hunter that influenced her? What was she mentored in? Why does he worship Sivanah? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
