I've had this book for a while now and already had some PC's in my group use the content from this book. There is a lot of material out there; but the balance and creativity Cody brings to the table is thoroughly considered, easy to consume and most of all FUN!

"The Big Book of" series should be a staple for every Player and DM. Seriously. If you don't have it, take a chance on it. You won't be disappointed in the value of the content. Can't wait to see what the next release will be in the series.

Awesome book, I bought it to help develop a character idea I already had, and I can already see all different kinds of PCs these backgrounds can help inspire. Some are more general (like miner and farmer), and some are more specialized (planar scholar, anyone?), but they can all help you flesh out any new character concepts you have, whether it's to come up with new ideas from scratch or refine existing ones. Also, as backgrounds don't directly impact gameplay that much, it's easy to imagine basically all DMs accepting this as homebrew, especially the way they're written; they're very similar to the ones in the PHB.

Backgrounds truly flesh out a character - and this is why I am imfamous for having four-page-backstories at level one. But when Cody told me about The Big Book of Backgrounds (5e) I thought he was joking. Well, turns out he wasn't, as the BBoB certainly lives up to its name. With 40+ new backgrounds to pick from, it is hard to pin down exactly my top one - so I give you my top five: the Undertaker, the Planar Scholar, the Treasure Hunter, the Explorer and the Farmer. And those are just five, I had to narrow that down from more than forty and it hurt in my soul, like deep deep down.

The few backgrounds you get in the Player's Handbook are fine and dandy, and offer a good base for new players to start, but sometimes I have DMed with new players who want something more than what is in the PB - now I know exactly what to give to them. Your roleaplay potential explodes by like 50 billion percent and now you can have very interesteding and complex level one characters who can dive right into the story. So if you haven't snagged a copy of The Big Book of Backgrounds (5e) then you need to stop reading this and go snag yourself one.
