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 69 - The Randomness

Sometimes random rolls give us more than one down side. This week our character’s stats give us a gnome with a below average dexterity and a below average wisdom. Touched by the death of an relative of much import to her sits well with the roll for having a relative be the biggest influence on her. Although religion is important to her the low wisdom means she is probably not a divine casting class. So let’s see what we can do with this week’s rolls.

Nationality: Ustalav
Age:  55
Height: 3’ 6”
Weight: 38lbs
Alignment:Lawful Neutral

Str: 14
Dex: 8
Con:  12
Int: 16
Wis: 9
Cha: 15

Homeland: Forest
Parents: Both of your parents are alive.
Siblings: You have 1 biological sibling.
- biological older brother
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: Entertainers
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 Relative] There is a relative you were especially close to. To you, this person was the meaning of family. He helped shepherd you into adulthood, teaching you everything you know about the world. You are bound to this person or his memory, and you strive to keep a promise, vow, or oath that you made to him.

Conflict: [Destruction] You destroyed someone else’s property.
Conflict Subject: Lover or former lover.
Conflict Motivation: Love.
Conflict Resolution: [Mixed Feelings] Sometimes you regret the conflict, but other times you feel as if you didn’t have a choice in the matter or that you made the right decision. Most of the time, you just avoid thinking about the conflict. Only you and maybe a select few people know of your involvement.
Deity/Religious Philosophy:Psomeira

Romantic Relationship(s): [Current Lover] You are currently involved in a romantic relationship.
Drawback: [Religion] Your beliefs are of paramount importance in your life, whether you belong to a temple, follow a cult, or practice a religious philosophy independently. When others question or attack the beliefs, principles, relics, or structures of your faith, you respond with fury.
