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 41 - The Randomness

This week by reader request I am focusing on the kasath. So to start the week off I will do a random roll for a kasatha character. Our kasatha is fast, durable, and smart although with slightly below average charisma. From a city or metropolis in Numeria, of which there are very few. A small family, a prophesied birth, and a meeting with a fantastic creature. So who is our new character?

Gender: Male
Race: Kasatha
Nationality: Numeria
Age: 30
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 130 lbs.
Alignment: Neutral Good

Str: 11
Dex: 16
Con: 16
Int: 15
Wis: 10
Cha: 9

Homeland: City or Metropolis
Parents: Both of your parents are alive.
Siblings: You have 2 biological siblings.
- biological younger sister
- biological younger brother
Circumstance of Birth: [Prophesied] Your birth was foretold, as recently as during the last generation to as far back as thousands of years ago.
Parent's Profession: Tradespeople
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 Fool] One of your close associates was a clown who mocked propriety and custom, instead engaging in wild and somewhat random actions from time to time. After a while, you learned that there was simple wisdom to this foolery—a careless worldview that taught you how to cast off concern.

Conflict: [Blackmailed] You used sensitive knowledge or threats to force someone’s cooperation.
Conflict Subject: Adventurer.
Conflict Motivation: Pleasure.
Conflict Resolution: [Regret and Penance] Not only do you regret your action, but you have publicly admitted to it and did your best to make amends for the wrongdoing. Most know of the conflict’s details and those who don’t can easily find them out if they know where to look or whom to ask.
Deity/Religious Philosophy: Jaidz

Romantic Relationship(s): [Experience but No Substantial Relationships] You’ve had a fling or two, but have so far shied away from any ties or commitments.
Drawback: [Family] Your family means everything to you, and there is nothing you wouldn’t do for them. Maybe your ties extend to your entire clan or bloodline, or perhaps there is one specific member of your family you hold closer than any other.

In the comments please tell us what character you would make with these disparate pieces information? What class would he naturally gravitate towards? Who is this kasatha and what is his prophesied destiny? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.

  1. I'd make this guy a Swashbuckler (the base class).

    No contest. Not only do the stats fit, but so does the carefree attitude. The low Charisma, coupled with said attitude, also means he'll be underestimated a lot. Could make for some interesting RP situations.

  2. All the abilities in the swashbuckler class are based on Cha. Having a -1 Cha modifier would make him incredibly weak as a Swashbuckler. That said there is an archetype - Inspired BladeI believe - that replaces Cha for Int with all Swashbuckler abilities. But I could definitely see how a bunch of the background information could lead you to this decision. You'll see tomorrow but I will say my character write up did not go Swashbuckler, so stay tuned and check it out.
