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.

Character Eighteen: The Randomness

Another one of our facebook readers was the first to post a background on the blog last week and the choice for race was Halfling. Now I’m not going back to look but I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned on a number of occasions about how much I love halflings. So I’m excited to give this wonderful race another go.

Age: 32
Height: 3'1"
Weight: 35 lbs.
Str 10
Dex 16
Con 16
Int 13
Wis 8
Cha 12
Homeland: Halfling Settlement
Parents: Both of your parents are alive.
Siblings: You have 4 biological siblings.
- biological younger brother
- biological older brother
- biological younger brother
- biological younger sister

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: [Death in the Family] You were profoundly affected by the death of the relative closest to you—a parent, grandparent, favorite sibling, aunt, uncle, or cousin. This death affected you profoundly, and you've never been able to let go of it.
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: [Broke a Promise] You swore an oath or vow that was important to someone else, but you did not keep your promise. CP: 1
Conflict Subject: Family member. CP: 0
Conflict Motivation: Pressured or Manipulated. CP: 2
Romantic Relationship(s): [One Significant Relationship] You had a true love once, but that time has passed.
Drawback: [Race] You are truly comfortable only around others of your race, and you have a hard time putting faith or trust in those of races different from your own.

Quick and tough, somewhat smart and likable, but doesn’t learn from his mistakes much. The rolled stats alone make this a difficult choice but here you are. What kind of halfling would you make using these stats?
