Pathfinder Background Generator

Views: 34979
Overall Rating:10
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. Think of each element on the background generator's tables as a piece of story material that you can link together with other random pieces to create a story you otherwise might now have imagined. Use this tool to inspire creativity rather than as hard-and-fast rules to mandate rigid and seamless character backgrounds. Though the generator provides many foundational details of a character's background, it takes some creative thought to massage the specifics together. As you use the generator, feel free at any point to reject contradictory elements or ones that go against your vision of the emerging character. The ideas on these tables are simply suggestions designed to channel and focus your imagination.

To generate a background, you roll on a number of tables and subtables, but before you do this, you must decide the gender, race, and class of your PC. Such decisions will help to inform the tables you'll use. After you've determined these basic character elements, you can begin using the background generator to determine your character's unique background.

NOTE: If you choose "Surprise", the generator will ignore all the other selections and select them all completely randomly.

Known issues: some male/female names for family members are not assigning correctly; Half-Orc, Halfling and Human current have the same stock entries for homeland, parents, and siblings. Will be corrected very soon!

Human, halfling and half-orc should now work!

Any chance of getting Antipaladin love?

It's just the Ultimate Campaign background generator. You'll need to ask Paizo!

Now lists available traits in a section at the bottom; plus has a Surprise option which totally randomizes the class, race, and sex choices to present you with a completely random character.

Oh, of course, wasn't thinking of that--my bad.

How about a selective surprise feature. Say you wanted to play a Paladin, but didn't really care what race it was. Is there a way to do that?

I chose Human and Magus and it gave me a Halfling Summoner background...the heck?

Sounds like you had "Surprise" selected. That overrides everything else and goes you a random combination.
