5e Random Character Tables


Random Character Tables

For use with D&D 5th Edition

The tables presented herein are meant to be able to roll a completely random character using a full dice set. Roll once on each of these tables to find your new, completely random character.

Alternate options for use:

  • Using a bulk dice collection, such as a Bag of Devouring, select a random set and use that set to help theme the character.

  • Roll all dice once, taking all results unless it’s a reroll.

  • Randomly roll on all random tables provided for a character’s personality, ideals, etc.

  • Use the d10 both as part of the d100 roll (\Background\) and for the d10 roll (Alignment). On a 10 you can either select an alignment yourself or reroll; this would use the first d10 roll for the background.

  • Roll on the tables below for fighting styles and pact boon.

  • Roll all stats randomly. Caution: This may result in a completely unoptimized build.

  • Use these tables as a DM to generate NPC’s on the fly.

  • Use the below tables for additional class options including Artificer, Mystic, and Blood Hunter.

    • This could replace rolling a d4 for a magic item.
