Race is an important aspect of a heroic character, but
it isn’t the whole story. Backgrounds provide greater
context as to why a given adventurer leads a life of danger
and glory, as well as adding mechanical flair in the form of
proficiencies and flavorful abilities. The Southlands brings
exotic new backgrounds, as well as expanded options
for existing backgrounds. Your hero may be a life-long
wanderer on the caravans setting out from Siwal, or she
may have grown up in a grand temple as the daughter of a
god. Backgrounds provide the “why” to complement the
“who” of a player character, combining to bring depth and
a stable foundation for a tale of greatness.
Your greatness awaits beneath pitiless sun and scouring
sands. Who will you be? How will you claim it?
