Character Backgrounds

A new feature of character generation for the Habisfern campaign setting is the idea of character backgrounds. These are a broad description of what your character has been doing until now, and they provide starting equipment and some basic skills.

The skills provided are generally 'decoration' skills. For example, a noble will have some knowledge of the law and administration, but few players will ever take these skills (though these particular skills could be useful). Forcing them to pay for them can make their character 'weaker'. Likewise, a freeman will have some degree of farming - a skill of even more limited use in the game.

Example Backgrounds


  • Law - 2
  • Farm - 1
  • Heraldry - 1


  • Farm - 4


  • Navigation - 2


  • Area lore - 4
  • Guile - Begging/2
