89157Z Posted April 23, 2013 Report Share Posted April 23, 2013 Obligatory disclaimer: I think there are too many backgrounds, and I am ashamed of myself for having suggested more in the past. That said... Backgrounds that give you skill levels straight out are not very useful. Furthermore, everyone has some kind of heritage. I recommend the Heritage traits be reduced to zero cost, and that an appropriate one of them (or an equivalent thereof for students from exotic locales) be applied to each of the NPC characters. This is partially an excuse to hand some more starting skills to the NPCs. Do they already have heritage backgrounds applied to them? They really ought to. Sure, not everyone can have been born amidst shattering mirrors under a streaking comet like the Mary Sues we're all playing stereotypical player character, but everyone comes from somewhere.
