Level Up Your Background (DMs Guild Product)

Post by Jared Rascher »

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.

Ah, how cool! I love the idea of expanding the use of Backgrounds in 5E. We've come a long way from "Secondary Skills," huh? :D
