From Ultimate Campaign, the background generator is intended to remove the creative pressure that can sometimes frustrate players as they try to flesh out the murky details of their characters' backgrounds. This generator provides these details with simple rolls of the die.

Note that each of the following tables has been assigned a CR score—this indicates the average difficulty of the encounters that can be rolled up on the table.

That's not to mention The Fine Handbook Of Divination And Husbandry, The Lexicon Of Illuminated Alchemy By Finor The Infernal, and the critically panned Transformation And Gambling: A Tome By Nofur The Numinous.
But best of all is The Compendium Of Infernal Foods & Preparation By Bain The Illuminated!
