Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my guide and thank you so much for checking out the 4th episode of our character creation series. In this episode we’re gonna be talking all about backgrounds kind of what they are, what they do for you and just the things along that nature should be pretty quick episode!

So in terms of what a background is! Backgrounds are what your character is doing or has been doing up until the time they decide to be come in adventure its kind of their history in some sense of the word. There is a ton of different options though i think there is thirty five last time i counted. So there’s quite a few of them, i think paizo did realy good job with them.

They are all really short, really brief but they provide a ton of flavor which is super great and naturally leads into great role play as well. That being said! let’s take a quick look at why they are important.

Importance Of Backgrounds

So your background does a number of things for you. It provides you with a couple of ability boosts, some skill training and a feat as well. Very cool stuff, all of them seem to follow this format for the most part it is really quick, really easy and really opens up the door for you creating homebrew stuff as well.

That’s what something i really love pathfinder 2e. I think that since they are so consistent with formatting. It really opens up the doors for creative individuals to come up with their own ideas it’s a very consistent game and in that respect which i really like.

So in this case we grab the tinker background creating all sorts of minor inventions that scratches your itch for problem-solving. Your engineering skills take a particularly creative bent, and no one knows what you will come up with next. It might be a genius device with tremendous potential or it might explode.

Chose two ability boosts. One must be to dexterity or intelligence and one is a free ability boost. You’re trained in the crafting skill and the engineering lore skill. You gain the speciality crafting skill feat.

Very cool stuff, there’s a ton of them once again about 35 looks like they’re gonna be adding some more later on as well and i’m super pumped for that. In later episodes we’ll be reviewing each one so keep checking this website for those.


That being said! It is pretty self eplanatory but once again for the newer players i feel like demistifying the character sheets is gonna be really help for him. So i hope you got some insights out of that. That being said, let me know what your favorite background’s gonna be down beneath in the comment section and also let me know what you think about the layout and any homebrew ideas you might have. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy adventuring everyone.
