Family Background
This background describes the characters family environment as a youngster, not his or her present status. The skills acquired from family background are minor, or refer to general familiarity, not to a high degree of skill or expertise. Depending on how much a player wants to know about their characters background, you can use the social status table above for a general idea or the following chart for a more detailed version. These breakdowns are not exact. Differing societies and cultures prize different things above others. Please adjust these tables as you see t.
