Got 99 problems? Make sure that a character background for tonight's game isn't one!
100 Character Backgrounds is a finely crafted list of mostly historically accurate and verisimilitudinous story hooks collected by our semi-professional writer people idk I'm tired. While intended to be used as 13th Age backgrounds (skills), this are great for 5th Edition D&D or just as plot hooks for any game!
A sample of what you might find:
13. Heir to the Pirate King
45. Small Town Mayor
93. Familiar with Every Song and Tale
This product is system and genre agnostic, so feel free to use it to use it to flesh out your fantasy PCs or just to spark your own imagination!
