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 30 - The Randomness

This week we have a reader request Merfolk for our race. There’s not a lot about them written on Golarion so we’re gonna have to make some stuff up. We managed an exactly 20 point buy with our rolls this week with Dex and Int coming out on top. As always Friday will see my build with these rolls, but what can you do with them?

Drawback: [The Future] Your concerns lie not with the present, but with preparation for the future.
