[5e/D&D] Backgrounds - the BIG list of backgrounds!

<< < (2/19) > >>

Tahmoh:
Anyone got a background that could be used with barbarian as a way of running a war vet/last survivor who suffers ptsd(possibly tied to certain environments or situations) as a reason for his rage? or should i just roleplay it out instead?

Barbarian with the soldier background as the feature and proficiencies would still be applicable. Bonds, flaws and ideals resolving around the trauma. I can't really see how PTSD could translate into a beneficial background feature.

A war/disaster refugee might warant a background though.

I'd just go with the Soldier Background.

PTSD is better described by a Flaw.

Tahmoh:
Yeah i figured as much, i may just use war hero as a background then add a flaw for the war trauma causing the rage side of things and see how that works in play.

Not likely to use the character for awhile(i rarely get to play as my group are all lazy gits when it comes to taking a turn as gm lol) so i probably have time to do more research and see what i can come up with.

RPGPundit:
Great stuff so far guys, keep it up!
