Your character needs something to bind them to the setting, to the story, to the world. Fortunately this edition of D&D has a way to make that easier for you; with Backgrounds.

There are largely three big things you get from your background.


Possible Starting Equipment (in addition to the ones offered by class), and

a Background Feature.

More to be added later.
