d8 Personality Trait
1 I talk about cows. All the time. No one knows more about cows than I do.
2 I have a secret cow keepsake that no one knows actually has to do with cows.
3 When I sleep, I dream of cows; I occasionally mutter “Cows…” out loud.
4 I let no one speak ill of cows. Cows can do no wrong.
5 I see cows in every shadow. Cows are sneakier than people think!
6 I have a cow-shaped birthmark on me that I show no one.
7 I feel compelled to wear a bell around my neck at all times.
8 Somootimes a cow-like sound sneaks into moo speech on accident...
d6 Ideal
1 Independence. I should be free to roam; everyone should be! (Chaotic)
2 Grazing. Seeking quality food is the most important thing ever. (Neutral)
3 Cleanliness. Bugs are ick. You know what’s good? A tail to swat flies. (Neutral)
4 Fences. Fences are here to keep good people in and bad people out. (Lawful)
5 Nourishment. I provide for others, like a cow to her calves. (Good)
6 Revenge. I will have my cow revenge, in this life or the next. (Evil)
d6 Bond
1 I have a good history with cows. Cows like me and I like them. We are friends.
2 I have a bad history with cows. No cow is good. Dead cows are better.
3 I used to be a cow. No, seriously.
4 Once, when I was young, a cow aided me. Since that time I have aided them whenever I can. I will never forget her kind eyes.
5 Once, when I was young, a cow wronged me. Hell won’t prevent me from exacting my just retribution from the humility.
6 I was raised on a farm. Of course I have a cow history. The #$%@ is this?
d6 Flaw
1 I am so consumed in my hatred of cows that I will ignore all other threats if I detect the presence of a cow.
2 Cows fascinate me. I will stop whatever I am doing if I see one in order to actively point out cows to my companions.
3 I seek a very specific cow, and will stop whatever I am doing to actively pursue that cow if I learn she is near.
4 I scream “Cow” as loud as possible at the most inopportune moments or when I'm nervous.
5 I have decided that in order to blend in with cows, I must smell like them. I offer no apology for this.
6 Cows frighten me to such an extent that I will immediately flee if I even suspect the presence of one in my vicinity.
