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.

Circumstance of Birth: [Lower-Class Birth] You were born among peasants or slum denizens. You grew up working the land around a village or manor, practicing a rudimentary trade, or begging in a settlement.

Parent's Profession: Serfs/Peasants

Major Childhood Event: [Bullied] In your early life, you were a victim— easy prey for those stronger or cleverer than yourself. They beat you when they could, using you for their sport. This abuse nursed a powerful flame of vengeance.

Influential Associate: [The Seer] You were close to a person who claimed to see the future—perhaps an oracle, seer, prophet, or merely some festival charlatan. Whether they're true or a trick, you've seen visions of distant places and of times that may come to pass. The seer's influence either made you into an optimist with a drive to change the future or a fatalist resigned to accept it.

Conflict Resolution:

Romantic Relationship(s): [A Few Significant Relationships] You’ve tried to make deep connections with individuals on several occasions, but it’s never worked out.

Drawback: [Power] You long for the ability to influence the world around you, whether that’s as small as a village or as large as a plane of reality.

The background I wrote for this will be posted Friday at 8am. But what kinda of character would you make based on these rolls? What class would you pick? Do you have a background in mind looking at these pieces of information? Share with us and let us see your creative juices flow.


  1. Tengu, lower class, murder, power. This all makes me think Cheliax.

    I think of a master manipulator. A collector of secrets. Probably a wizard (Diviner?) with heavy ties to the underworld. Started small, and built an organization of "Little Birds" who help gather info for him. Extensive use of spells and magic items such as dust of tracelessness, Mindblank spells, Gloves of Recon., etc. allow him to survive while gathering secrets from even the most dangerous and powerful targets. He turns potential enemies against each other, and his friends prosper, but always with a price. Nothing in this world is free.

    Known only as the King of Whispers.

  2. This is exactly what i was hoping to see. The point of the blog is to inspire creativity and this reply is within that spirit. When my background posts Friday people can see how the same numbers can mean different things to different people. A lot of good stuff in this, stuff I didn't think about at all I must admit.

    Good show unknown user, good show
