Backgrounds

The first step to creating a character is to choose a background. Was he born on Earth before the Fall? Was she raised on a habitat commune? Or did they start existence as a disembodied AI?

A character's background covers where he came from, not who he is in the present. Each background presented below covers a wide selection of transhumanity but it is not necessarily a complete listing and so players can always work with the GM to develop backgrounds not included on the list below, using the existing ones as guidelines to keep the new one(s) balanced.

Backgrounds will provide characters with certain skills, traits, limitations, or other characteristics to start with.
