D&D Backstory Generator with GPT-3 AI

Do you want a more powerful D&D backstory generator with more control? Good news. I also run LitRPG Adventures, a set of Ai-powered RPG tools and a growing library of RPG content generated by GPT-3 API from OpenAI (and lovingly edited by squishy humans).

Hello. I'm Paul Bellow, a LitRPG author and creator of this site with hundreds of free DND character backstories available. They are suitable for DND 5e, Pathfinder, and more! (It's a great idea generator!) If you're a tabletop gamer, I invite you to check out the LitRPG Adventures Workshop today.






How do you create a character backstory?

If you want to create a character, you have a few options these days. You can do it the old fashioned way and write it out yourself. Or, you can use one of the modern backstory generators, like this one. Either way, you want to come up with enough of a story to really flesh out the character, making sure to consider the character’s personality, outlook on life and outlook on the world. An RPG generator alone will not get you all the way with an award winning character!

Incorporate these details and information into the text of your character's story, explaining how they’ve affected your character and what they’ve learned from these events. If your character has a specific goal, problem or characteristic, they should be well fleshed out in the character's background. Just don't add too many adjectives in the content. All these tips will help you make better character backgrounds for all your DND characters.

What are some tragic background ideas?

If you're playing D&D and want some tragic backstories or a sad background, consider these:

To make your D&D character even more interesting, try mixing and matching or combining several of these tragic background ideas into one. You can then write it yourself or use a generator to get started. Add a few adjectives where needed to spice the text up some.

What are some heroic backstory ideas?

If you're playing D&D and want some heroic ideas for your PC, consider these:

Try mixing and matching or combining several of these heroic ideas into one. Again, you can then write this all out yourself or use generators to get started. I've built quite a few RPG generators over the last few years, and I can say they're helpful. This backstory generator is just one of many I've created.

How do you make a unique character?

Overall, here are some tips to make a unique character:
