While many backgrounds from the Players Handbook 2 and other official sources fit perfectly well in Arith, this page provide campaign-specific background choices. Many will be tied to a heritage from one of the Arvanoran City-States, or tied to a particular organization.

Some players may choose multiple backgrounds as a way to provide details on their character’s history. Remember that even with multiple backgrounds, a player must choose either:

  • One skill from the background choices is added to the character’s trained skill list or
  • A +2 bonus to one of the skills from the background choices or
  • One language listed in the background choices
