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 47 - The Randomness

A noble born vanara from a forest on another plane or dimension. A pleasure seeker with an ordinary childhood and an influential mentor. Dedicated to the Empyreal Lord Seramaydiel whose concerns are communication, inspiration, and music. How did this seemingly normal simian come to wander away from her home in search of adventure?

Gender: Female
Race: Vanara
Nationality: Other plane or dimension
Age: 17
Height: 5’ 0”
Weight: 125lbs
Alignment: Neutral Good

Str: 10
Dex: 18
Con:  11
Int: 13
Wis: 15

Homeland: Forest
Parents: Both your parents are alive
Siblings: You have 1 biological sibling.
- biological older sister
Circumstance of Birth: [Noble Birth] You were born to privilege among the nobility. Unless one of your parents is the regent, your family serves a higher-ranked noble but lesser nobles serve your family in turn.
Parent's Profession: [Gentry] You are the child of a minor lord, lady, or noble with an income, hereditary land such as a manor, and titles. You likely grew up in a manor and your parents were paid tribute by peasants. Your parents serve a higher baron, count, or duke.
Major Childhood Event: [Ordinary Childhood] Your childhood was fairly ordinary, with no major blessing or catastrophe—a stark contrast to an adventuring life. You lived your life in anticipation of growing up so you could affect the dull backdrop upon which your mundane life was painted. Now that you've grown, it's easy to miss those tranquil days where nothing ever seemed to happen.

Influential Associate: [The Mentor] You had a mentor who taught you everything worth knowing about life. This could have been the person who taught you the heroic abilities you possess, or simply a kindred spirit who helped form your worldview.

Conflict: [Minor Theft] You stole several small or inexpensive items that belonged to someone else.
Conflict Subject: Spellcaster
Conflict Motivation: Justice
Conflict Resolution: [No Guilt] Either guilt is for the weak, or you know you made the right decision. You might not openly brag about your part in the conflict, but you don’t deny it when confronted either.
Deity/Religious Philosophy: Seramaydiel
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: [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.

  1. Raki was born to Varana lords in the forests of Nirvana and she grew up with a relatively regular noble's childhood: she attended court, met dignitaries, was courted by sons of the other nobles, etc.

    When she was 15, she took a crystal ball from the cart of a traveling wizard and when he caught her she dropped it and it shattered. Though her family had the money to pay for its replacement, they chose instead to send her out into the world as his assistant to give her practice for being a diplomat and a noble later in life.

    After 3 years of travel, the wizard died, however rather than admit just how little magic she had learned, she took everything she had learned about magic.... and faked it..
