Backstories - New and Improved Backgrounds

Suggested Price $1.00

NOTE: this contribution is now obsolete, as a new, better version of it has been included in my Multiversatility – Player’s Options Pack.


My first custom content for the DM’s Guild was, a year and a few months ago, a new background: the Inquisitor. The Plague Doctor followed shortly and, although it didn’t became a silver bestseller like its more inquisitive brother, it was nevertheless much appreciated.

Age, however, catches us all, and especially catches our works: it was time for a major update of the previous PDFs, and perhaps for a new, enriched bundle. A bundle where you will find more, better artwork for the two aforementioned backgrounds, and two brand new ones.

This bundle, my fellow players, is Backstories – New and Improved Backgrounds!

I hope you enjoy it! For you can choose only one background during – or before? - your adventuring career, and my aim is to provide new, interesting options to improve your gaming experience since the first stage of your PC’s life.

And so, here you will find:

the Inquisitor,

When horrors rise from the depths of hell, even the heroes like you have to cast their piety aside; for you are an inquisitor, and you shall have no rest till the wicked walk the Earth.

the Plague Doctor,

When there are no available clerics, in those lonely and forgotten vales where the passing of a miracle-maker is a tale for generations, and when the outbreak of plague pretends its toll, then plague doctors like you rise, dedicated to offer a mundane but nevertheless effective cure to the afflicted.

the Planar Refugee,

You were forced to leave your home plane, escaping into an unforgiving Multiverse where the very air you breathed was like a toxic memory of what you left behind. After a long journey, you finally reached a place to dwell. But your true home is still out there, lost among the Million Spheres.

and the Reborn.

You were born, you lived, you died, and then you were born anew and you live back again. Much time passed between your two lifes, but you still remember what happened during your previous existence.

Last but not least, in the Appendix you will find an expanded skill list for the backgrounds first introduced by the Player's Handbook.

So, even if you already bought my previous backgrounds, you will find this bundle very convenient, for it will provide you at least two more backgrounds for the price of mere 99 cents.

And remember: if you have any suggestion, please write a review and comment. I'm more than eager to update my works to make them more suitable for new and recurring customers!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
