Backgrounds & Details Kit 2 - Fantasy Edition

In 2012, the original Backgrounds and Details Kit from Ennead Games was released. Now, several years later, it has been remade, with more options and the original set of details expanded on and improved. Combining this publication with content from others that have been made over the years and new features added the BDK 2 was made. Designed for both players who want to flesh out their character and GMs that wish to make an NPC that little bit more believable.

This publication is divided into multiple parts; quick, detailed and life events.

The quick section is for when you want just the basics. It covers the characters age range, their gender, species, profession and personality - Make an NPC with only a few rolls.

Detailed is when you want more details for your characters or NPCs or to help flesh out an existing characters background. You may need a flaw, a secret or just can’t decide what colour the characters hair is. You probably won’t be using all these details on one character at once. This section gives you hair style, skin, friends & family, fears/phobias, motivations and much more.

Life events cover major events in the characters life, from birth, through adulthood and method of death, if needed.

When using theses tables, especially the detailed background ones, you may get what appears to be conflicting results. But don’t despair or re-roll these results as some of the most interesting characters can come from what appears to be conflicting information.

Inside you find tables for...

Character hometown details
Eyes details and other facial features
Parents details
Phobias and how character reacts to their phobia
Professions
Skin type/condition
Species
Typical clothing
Voice style and type


and many more!

Now updated with a clickable table of contents and index

Does this edition work alongside Background & Details Kit, or does this replace that edition? Is material repeated?

Its a replacement/expansion to the previous edition. Some of the material is repeated yes, some tables are expanded, others are edited and fixed, whilst some tables are new.

I gave this a 4 star review, dinging it because it didn't have an index or bookmarks but less than a day after I posted that review the author had updated it to have both. Between it now having everything I could want AND the author being so amazing in supporting their book, I really wish I could update to 5 stars, hell... I'd give 6 if I could. This is the way its supposed to be done.

I believe you're able to update reviews after submitting them. I've done this in the past, but it's been a while, so perhaps something changed. It might be worth checking on, however.

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.
