Racial Traits - Idea list here.

Post  FlyingPinkPony on Wed Jun 02, 2010 9:36 am

So as mentioned in the thread below this there are substantial changes to how backgrounds will be handled. This is a consolidation/idea thread. Feedback and ideas would be awesome. Luckily the new system is pretty darn modular and so will be easy to handle and for the community to make additions to. Anyhoot, backgrounds will be divided into three types - Racial, Profession, and Unique.

Racial - Dictated at character creation by your characters race. All dwarfs for example will share the same 2 racial backgrounds. One of these is a small passive bonus, the second is a free powerful ability. Usually in the form of a substantial 1 round buff that can have the duration extended.

Profession - Race independent - Any character can be of any profession. The main purpose is to emphasize what has your character been doing before they joined our world? Were they a soldier, scholar, or something else entirely? Each player picks 1 profession that best fits their characters background.

Unique - Race semi-dependant - The catch all category for character backgrounds. Many of these are race dependant but many more are not or are available to limited races. These are small passive buffs that represent bonuses from additional training, religion, or events from a characters past.


-Below is a list I'll be compiling of these options. Suggestions from the community would be awesome. -
