Background & Details – Fantasy

Background & Details – Fantasy

In 2012, the original Backgrounds and Details Kit from Ennead Games was released. Now, several years later, it has been remade, with more options and the original set of details expanded on and improved. Combining this publication with content from others that have been made over the years and new features added the BDK 2 was made. It has been designed for both players who want to flesh out their character and GMs that wish to make a NPC that little bit more believable.
 
The quick section is for when you want just the basics, such as race or profession or even personality.
 
Detailed is when you want more details for your characters or npcs or to help flesh out an existing characters background. You may need a flaw, a secret or just can’t decide what colour the characters hair is. You probably won’t be using all these details on one character at once.
 
Life events cover major events in the characters life, from birth, through adulthood and method of death, if needed.
 
Due to the nature of a random generator and coding limitations, there may be some results that are contradictory. If this occurs, then re-roll, ignore or come up with something of your own
 

This generator uses information originally found in Backgrounds & Details Kit 2 – Fantasy Edition
