I’ve done some tinkering with trying to make backgrounds more exciting, but I really like how Brandes Stoddard executed the idea in this product. Rules for changing backgrounds, taking advanced backgrounds with slightly more mechanical oomph, and rules for recruiting (and paying) recruited NPCs.
How timely! Thanks for the review!
Looks interesting, thanks. An aside, does anyone else think 5E backgrounds feel a lot like WFRP (1E) initial occupations?
