Random Background Generator

Ultimate Campaign introduced a beautiful and elegant way of creating simple backgrounds for your characters that were specific enough to spark your ideas, but vague enough to let you work in the finer details. While rolling up the individual bits can be entertaining, I wanted to give the option of a quick solution if you just need that background right now.

Just follow the steps below and click the button. Random options were included in each that will select from the available choices (though not always with equal ratios). Enjoy!

Update 6/28/13: The tool now includes the option to utilize additional tables found in Quests & Campaigns. The box is checked by default, uncheck this if you do not wish to use these options.


Step 1 - Gender: Select your gender.

Step 2 - Race: Select your race. Non-core races will use the Human tables for determining region of birth and family.

Step 3 - Class: Select your class.

Step 4 - Alignment/Religion: Choose whether to pick an alignment/religion after the background is done, or randomly choose both. Due to the link between most religions and alignment (Lawful Good people typically do not worship Chaotic Evil deities), I chose to tie these options together.


Step 5 - Age/Height/Weight: Do you want to randomly decide your age, height, and weight?
