Whenever I feel less than inspired, I have this little exercise I use, where I have a sheet of paper with 3 columns on it. The first column has various animal types. The second one has a class, and the third one has a personality trait. I then roll a die to determine one from each column and go to town on creating whatever the dice tell me to. This instance was something in the vicinity of Cunning Crocodile Bard. It's a very fun way to stay creative.
