Random Height and Weight

If you want to, you can roll randomly for your character’s height and weight using the Random Height and Weight table.

The dice roll given in the Height Modifier column determines the character’s extra height (in inches) beyond the base height.

That same number multiplied by the dice roll or quantity given in the Weight Modifier column determines the character’s extra weight (in pounds) beyond the base weight.
