curse of the crimson pathfinder dice

Win a set of Elven Rune dice - details at end of post

Q-Workshop sent me a set of orange elven dice. The design and graceful script on their faces would give great luck to any elven PC or NPC, I’m certain. Very nice dice. Continuing on with the series started last month with a random political plot generator, this month we offer you a random high elf generator. At the bottom of this post are instruction on how you can win a set of this dice for yourself.

The elves of this generator are courtly, cultured, stylish. They are noble beings concerned with power and control. They think on a level higher than most, of leadership, influence and strategy. Yet, they are not perfect and have flaws and secrets that create weaknesses. Imagine having a weak point you must guard for 1000 years. How would that affect you? Such is the fate of the careless, unlucky or ambitious.

Create a high elf for your campaign by rolling for:

  • Name
  • Quirk
  • Motive
  • Appearance
  • Secret
  • Power Base

Random Appearance

d8 Appearance
1 Long dour face with prominent ears, average build but strong; wears breast plate and leathers to all but royal functions; long black hair and diamond hard green eyes; when not carrying a sword is making a fist.
2 Bone-thin face and emaciated body from disease early in life; long cloak with hood that hides face hangs loosely on their thin frame; grey hair and piercing blue eyes when face does get revealed; carries a staff for support as much as a magical device.
3 Bright round face, portly build and big smile helps them make friends easily; dressed in court finery but on the practical side and often with a few grease stains on their doublet; Coarse brown hair a bit too long for current fashion and happy green eyes invite everyone to laugh with them.
4 A red birth mark mars the cheek and neck of their sturdy face with a chin too broad to consider attractive, average build carries too many nights of drinking; workman’s clothes announces their lack of ambition; blond hair is tied into a ponytail a bit too close to wood elf style, green eyes always assessing; often wears a tool belt or has some broken thing in hand they are mending.
5 Delicate bone structure and learned face gain reserved respect, light build offers fluid movements and easy gestures; normally carries a book or scroll tucked in robes pocket, and tasseled cap completes the scholar’s look; brown hair tidily kept to the back, but brown eyes are glassed with wine often enough to start rumours.
6 A plain face, strong build and warrior’s stance meshes well with their combative demeanor; always in light armor well maintained and broken in, two weapons dangle at hips with more likely out of sight; long blonde hair and squinting blue eyes.
7 Pink eyes, pale skin, hairless body, slight build and raspy voice triggers warding gestures in others; garbed in white robes unless they mean business, in which case the scarlet robes are donned to further unsettle; more likely to make enemies than friends, some mutter about curses and taints.
8 The face of the gods, strong and confident, commanding and inspiring; strides in kingly silks, bedecked in fine jewels, though the enchanted longsword at their side gains respect from those not impressed by appearance alone; has a loyal following with several hangers on around at most times; fine blonde hair allowed free reign and bold blue eyes.
