Usually, the DnD 5e backgrounds will give you important story clues about your character’s identity, and character background. Which can reveal how you became an adventurer in dnd, where you came from, what the languages of your, what are the Personal Characteristics of you, the ideals, bonds, and flaws of each role.

In addition to race and occupation, a character can have more complementary descriptions. As unique individuals, their own stories, interests, connections, and abilities can be defined by other elements.

In the following talking about dnd 5e backgrounds, we will explore the character detail that distinguishes each character from others, including name and physical characteristics, background and language rules, and personality.

DnD 5e Backgrounds

What are Backgrounds in DND?

There are so many backgrounds in DND 5e. They are mainly divided into two categories, the dnd background 5e, and dnd background homebrew.

Check out the following dnd 5e backgrounds list, if you want to learn more about them.

DnD 5e backgrounds


Every story has a beginning.

The background item of the character explains its origin, how to become an adventurer, and its place in the world.

Your warrior may have been a brave knight or a crying soldier. Your mage may have been a sage or a craftsman. Your wanderer may have been a guild thief or a court jester who confuses the public.

Choosing a background gives you important story tips about the character’s identity.

The key question in the 5e backgrounds is:

  • What has changed?
  • For what reason did you give up the life described in the background and start the adventure?
  • How do you get your starting gear?
  • Or, if you were ever rich, why didn’t you have more money?
  • How do you learn your current career skills?
  • What makes you different from ordinary people in your hometown?

The following dnd 5e backgrounds list provides specific benefits, covers the features, proficiency, and language, as well as suggestions for role-playing.

Let’s dive into the details of the Proficiencies, Languages, Equipment, Suggested Characteristics, and Customizing a Background of dnd backgrounds.

The Proficiencies


Generally, two skills are given to each dnd background.

Skills

Each attribute covers a wide range of abilities, including skills that a character or monster can master. Each skill represents a particular performance of an attribute in a certain aspect, while the skill proficiency reflects the character’s focus on this aspect.

The character’s starting skill is determined when the character is created, and the monster’s skill is described in its attribute data.

For example, an agile check may represent a character’s ability to attempt gymnastic stunts, hide an object, or hide. All three agile-related activities have corresponding skills, namely gymnastics, cleverness, and concealment.

As a result, characters with concealed skills are particularly good at making agile checks related to hiding.

Dnd 5e skills mainly cover 5 related skills. The skills related to each attribute value are listed below, and application examples using each skill are listed in the subsequent attribute value descriptions.

  • Strength: Athletics
  • Intelligence: Arcana, Investigation, Nature, Religion, History
  • Dexterity: Stealth, Sleight of Hand, Acrobatics
  • Charisma: Performance, Deception, Intimidation, Persuasion
  • Wisdom: Insight, Animal Handling, Medicine, Survival, Perception

Tools

In addition, most backgrounds give character proficiency in one or more tools.

Tools can help you accomplish things that are usually difficult to achieve, such as making or repairing items, forging instruments, prying locks, etc.

Race, profession, background, and expertise may give you proficiency in certain tools, and whenever you use a tool that already has a proficiency to perform an attribute check, you can add the current proficiency bonus to the corresponding check result.

The use of a tool is not tied to a single attribute value, because the skilled intent of the tool is to know its extensive use.

For example, the DM may require you to make an agile check when you use the woodcarving tool to sculpt details, and when you sculpt hardwood, you may be required to make a power check.

If a character gets the same proficiency in two different ways, the character can choose to replace it with a different proficiency of the same kind (skill or tool).

Languages

In general, the character’s race also defaults to the language he or she knows, and the background item allows the character to master more additional languages.

These mastered languages should be recorded on the corresponding character cards.

Choose your language from the table Standard Languages, or choose one of the languages commonly used in your campaign.

With DM permission, you can also choose a language from the form Exotic Language or choose a secret language (such as Rogue or Druid) instead of a language of your choice.

These language categories actually contain many dialects of the same language. For example, Primordial includes several dialects, including Auran, Aquan, Ignan, and Terran.

DruidicNoneDruids

Each dialect corresponds to one of the four elemental planes. Creatures who speak different dialects of the same language can still communicate with each other.

Equipment

In dnd 5e, each background provides a starting equipment.

If you choose to purchase equipment with currency using optional rules, you will not be able to obtain starting equipment from background items at the same time.

Suggested Characteristics

The description of each dnd background item contains suggestions for personal characteristics based on the background.

You can choose their own features, or roll the dice to determine randomly, or even create a character feature by referring to the suggestions.

Customizing a Background

You may want to change some of the characteristics in the background to make it better suited to the character or campaign setting.

When customizing the background, you can replace its background characteristics with other characteristics. You can also choose two skills from the same background example, and select a total of two tool proficiency or language items for similar replacement operations.

You can directly use the equipment items given in the background or use the currency to make purchases according to the above dnd 5e tools list, but you can’t get your professional starting equipment at the same time when you use the currency to buy.

In the end, you can choose between two characteristics, one ideal, one stumbling block, and one disadvantage. When you can’t find a feature that meets the background requirements, you can also discuss with your DM to create one.
