Many moons ago, half an internet away, there was a thread on the official WotC boards with this same name. It, along with its many treasures, are long gone now, and so I thought it was time to let our collective creative juices flow once more.

Basically, this is exactly what the title says. A depository for simple but interesting personality quirks, which a player could easily add to a character to flesh them out on a moment's notice. I will give us some to start off with, but it is open for anyone to post their ideas.

1: Fear of chickens.
2: Obsessed with gossip about royalty.
3: Constantly trying to teach yourself juggling.
4: Attempts to befriend all animals.
5: Insists on keeping adventuring party color coordinated.

60. Chronic procrastinator.
61. [Foreign culture]phile. Just totally obsessed with this far-off land.
62. Pica - condition where some times you just want to eat things that aren't food.
63. Extreme hatred of goblins (regardless of whether this is a fantasy setting).
64. Poor depth perception and hands shaped like claws. Hands sometimes shake. Poor long term memory paired with surprising mental agility.
65. Dentures

So, do we expect people to roll these up for RPGs on the forum?
Edit- seeing what kind of character I get if I roll some of these up:
TPzombieW rolled 3d65 and got a total of 93:
40, 13, 40

Exaggerates all stories and Assumes everyone lies. Those actually go together pretty well.
I guess the trick is to get the right ratio of reasonable:nutty.
