Pathfinder Random Race Tables

Below are some random race tables I came up with one night while rolling up some random NPCs. Combined with some random NPC trait tables, it’s possible to come up with some fun (if sometimes improbable, like the irritable, tongueless, ‘accompanied by four children’ dwarf executioner that came up) ideas for characters.

The tables assume that humans are by far the most common race – as is the case in the Pathfinder campaign setting, but you may want to adjust the numbers if using these for a different setting.

Common Races

1-45 Human
46-52 Elf
53-59 Dwarf
60-65 Halfling
66-72 Gnome
73-80 Half-elf
