Chart 10: Enemies
This could be something as small as a local bully that never forgets your name, or an eventual major villain that reoccurs throughout the characters life. This can be a good example to improve the characters life and relationships or cause enough of a plot hook to have enough adventure during the characters life to never have to worry about being bored.

01 – 15) No Enemies: Yet. . .
16 – 25) Minor Childhood Enemy: Someone has a grudge against the character but it is small and has no reason to lash out violently.
36 – 30) Jilted Lover: The character wronged someone in the matter of feelings and love related issues in their youth.
31 – 35) Lovers’ Friend of Relative: Someone has a grudge or ill will toward the character due to their actions toward a loved one the character treated badly.
36 – 40) Romantic Rival: You beat someone out of someone’s affection and another who was pining for their attention feels wronged and holds a grudge.
41 – 50) Family Enemy: Your family has gained the enmity of a person, group, organization, or another family.
51 – 55) Friends’ Enemy: The enemy of my friend is my enemy. One of your close friends has an enemy and that that person hates you due to your relationship with them.
56 – 60) Social Rival: You have wronged someone in a social, public, or business manner.
61 – 70) Villain: One or more local criminals that have contacts to a much larger organization has chosen to direct their hate toward you because of some incident you had a hand in.
71 – 75) Creature: A group of intelligent creatures have chosen to direct their hate toward you for an incident you had a hand in during your youth.
76 – 80) Political Enemy: A noble, military officer, or other high ranking official looks to you with disfavor and contempt.
81 – 85) Arcane Rival: A student of the arcane develops an intense hatred for you due to an early incident in your lives.
86 – 90) Diabolic Enemy: A demon or other powerful enemy identifies you as a current or eventual threat.
91 – 100) Imaginary Foe: You falsely believe that someone is out to get you at all costs. Go to Comment

Since I created this thing, I decided to show everyone how it works. Thanks to manfred he has diligently worked ot get the random generator working for this and right now, it works great. Here is what my new NPC has for a background. Its not spectacular, but its quick and fast. I did it in three minutes.

1) 51-65: Village Community
2) 01-20: Lower Class, homeless, beggers, etc.
3) 46-70: Minor Wealth
4) 46-65; Merchants
5) 26-50: Fair Ethics
6) 01-40: Unknown Reputation
7) 01-49: No Known Ancestors
8) 86-95: Illness
9) 01-60: Nothing
10) 16-25: Minor Childhood Enemy

Now I didn’t do the racial community, simply because I think Manfred forgot to put it in there. But here is what I got from this little experiment.

My family was originally merchants of some minor wealth. They owned their own home and business and were comfortable in their day to day needs to have few concerns. When I was young I came down with wet lung (pneumonia) and it taxed my parents so. I was ill for months at a time, and even when I got better, I would be overcome by a violent cough on the most unfortunate occasions.

Having spent their savings to find a healer to make me better, they began loosing their business for lack of want or care. Having no other siblings, their only desire was to see me well. At first, we had plenty of friends wishing to help, until the daughter of the local constable began spending her time with me, helping me throughout the day. This caught the nerve of Johnny Thimes, who fancied her to no end. The taunting never ended and it began to circulate around the village that my sickness could spread. She stopped coming.

Hurt, my parents left with me and went to the outlands where my pa hired on as a small time farm worker. We have little now, and mom weeps at night for what we don’t have. My cough still lingers but I vow to leave and return one day to raise my parents back to what they had and get them out of the muck and mire they are in because of my illness. Go to Comment

Thank you for your concern. But if you read the text the following is stated in the submission.

This was created in conjuncion with an online guide to help flesh out a character during creation. This is a much shorter version, the online version was 75 pages long.

It is a much trimmed down version of what was located and read on the internet. There is no meaning to make profit or to even claim that I wrote any of what is in the sub. Now we take ideas from many concepts, whether they are from movies, books, TV shows, and alas from the internet. Some with direct conotations from these sources. This is an idea site. This was put up to give those GM's or players a helpful idea on the creation of background for those who have not read the original as some of the viewers and readers onthis site do not follow D20 or other conventional games. Agin however, thank you for your remarks. Go to Comment

And of all the things i have seen copied directly form the internet and not classified as being from another source other than the person who submitted it on the site. At least I stated point blank that it was from another source. Now crap like this, seemingly an attack, has made me really not want to come back again. Delete it if you wish. Adios. Go to Comment

I find this to be a wonderful idea and while not sure it would work with every group, I feel this is a wonderful way to begin a new campaign and set things in motion. Some groups like mine would balk at running parts of a story that regardless of their actions the end result is nearly set but over all this is a grand idea. Welcome and kudos.

Having started my own campaign books via Moonhunter's example I can see a nice use for this. Its always helpful and handy to have for those who are absent minded like myself especially when you have players who never forget anything. I agree with this.

Now oddly enough as much as I love dragons I have never had a single one in any game I have ever ran. And as much as I shy away from the 30 subs this one drew me in instantly.



I like 3 and 22 both entertaining and easy to use.

Ok major things I wish to learn more about...



Who is the Witch, or a witch as it seemed a title to me and not just a position.



The Fog of Rigor... very intriguing name...



The Conclave and the Blackened Church...

I will hold my vote for now to see how this catches on. If I were more into Sci-fi I would delve into this. As it is though I think it is a major task and hope it catches on. Come on people fill this next to the 150 planets we have... need orbital stations around those planets.
