Previous Lives Volume 1 - Additional Character Backgrounds

Suggested Price $0.99

Feeling limited by the player backgrounds available to your PCs? Maybe you're a DM looking to add a few unique NPCs? These additional PC backgrounds will expand the options and enrich your story by providing additional context for your backstory.

These five reasonable backgrounds will fit in any campaign without raising too many eyebrows. After all, every PC doesn't need to be a half-God orphan who was raised by wolves!

New backgrounds included in this document:
  1. Prisoner
  2. Farmer
  3. Civil Servant
  4. Pariah
  5. Cultist

Keep an eye out for Previous Lives Volume 2, which still probably won't contain a raised by wolves background!

The text that is not headings or in tables is unreadable.

Hey Zoe, that's odd! I just downloaded this on a computer that has never seen these files and they seem to work for me. What PDF reader are you using?

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.
