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 102 - The Randomness

This week’s character should prove interesting. A lot to work with in the stats especially an intelligence of five. An unlucky roll got me a seven and the Suli’s racial negative took it down even further. I personally tend to play skill monkeys and high intelligence characters so this kind of roll would definitely have force me to play outside of my comfort zone. So I’ll look over the background bits and see if I can’t make it all add up.

Human Ethnicity:Vadruni
Age: 16
Height:5’ 7”
Alignment:Neutral Good

Str: 13
Dex: 16
Con: 11
Int: 5
Wis: 16
Cha: 14

Homeland: Town or Village
Parents: Both of your parents are alive.
Siblings: You have 8 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: Yeomen
Major Childhood Event: [Met a Fantastic Creature] When you were only a child, you made contact with a magical creature, such as a dragon, unicorn, genie, pixie, or similar creature. You learned a powerful lesson or a magic trick from that creature. This meeting changed your life and made you different from the other children.

Influential Associate:[The Academic] One of your associates had such a lust for knowledge that she could never be satisfied with simple answers or obvious solutions. This desire for knowledge frequently exceeded her need for companionship, but you were the single exception. Through this association you developed a keen appreciation for numbers, geometry, logic, hard study, and problem solving.

Conflict: [Minor Theft] You stole several small or inexpensive items that belonged to someone else.
Conflict Subject: Merchant.
Conflict Motivation: Money.
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:Seramaydiel

Romantic Relationship(s):[One Significant Relationship] You had a true love once, but that time has passed.
Drawback:[Pleasure] You crave luxury, entertainment, and pleasure. You might indulge in every passing fancy or hold strong against a temptation that constantly eats at you.

In the comments give us your ideas for how to make this into a fully realized character? What class would this character gravitate towards? What fantastic creature did he meet as a child? Why would an academic take interest in a child who wasn’t at all bright? Who are all of his eight siblings? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
