Quick Character Relationships

Ever wanted your player’s characters to be connected more than “we’re thugs that met in a tavern”, but didn’t want to write a long backstory about it? This is that, I guess.

Roll 2d6 on this list
2 – parent and child
3 – siblings
4 – cousins
5 – friend with common enemy
6 – friend with shared interests
7 – colleagues
8 – childhood friends
9 – rivals (the friendlier type)
10 – master and servant
11 – unlikely friends
12 – romantic (if applicaple)

It’s a quick and dirty solution when you can’t bother to think, or a place to start and spark some ideas. I might make a bigger one, or one with game-mechanical effects, later.
