Background in Dungeon and Dragon is interesting in many ways and this beauty of it makes it more interest worthy, why? Because background is the identity of you Character. And not only it is the identity of your character but also describes what he/she was in their past? And what he is now? How did he start his adventure? What circumstances or events made him quit what he was doing earlier and how he started his journey?
All these and many more aspects of the background makes it something like a tale or story of your character and it manages to engage a player’s interest in it.
Like many other things that are mentioned in the Dungeon and Dragon player’s handbook, background is also presented in the book in a separate Chapter of its.
Here we will be going through the different aspects of a typical background which will not only helps us to understand the Backgrounds that are mentioned in the book but it will also enable to customized our own background that I have described in my previous article about “HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND?”
There are two types of proficiencies that can be attributed to a character in the background of it. The proficiencies include the proficiency of Skills and Tool.
The sample backgrounds that are described in the book has their proficiencies like ACOLYTE 5E has skill proficiency of INSIGHT, RELIGION and has no tool proficiency.
Unlike ACOLYTE, the CHARLATAN has both the Skill and The tool Proficiency; DECEPTION, SELIGHT OF HAND and DISGUISE KIT AND FORGERY KIT, respectively.
Tool proficiency can be seen in the book at the Chapter number 5 and Skill proficiency can be found in te book at the Chapter number 7.
Languages are one of the key aspects of a Character in DnD and some background allow player to select more than one languages.
Languages in D&D are something that shows that from which race your character is? And there are some dnd backgrounds 5e which gives you access to more than one languages.
Languages are described in the book in the two different categories namely; STANDARD LANGUAGES and EXOTIC LANGUAGES.
Players can have a language from the standard languages which would be a default one and will indicate your race and by the permission of the DM player can also go for the EXOTIC LANGUAGES.
As there is nothing for free in the dungeon and dragon; equipment are the starting things that need to be bought be spending some coins on them.
Equipments, proficiencies and languages are eclipsed when suggested characteristics comes into action. All of the above defined are either some material for the character or way to utter and communicate but the Suggested Characteristics is something that makes your Character unique from the rest of the Characters.
Keys things in the heading of Suggested characteristics like Personality traits, Ideals, Bonds, Flaws give life to a character and it makes it a complete and Unique like we human beings are.
We have our own perspective of different things and situation and we perceive the world differently and suggested characteristics do the same for a character.
