Languages[edit]

Languages spoken by races and creatures dedicated to the Hyrule setting are rooted firmly in The Legend of Zelda series. If a DM would prefer to use Hyrule content in a more traditional Dungeons & Dragons setting, it's best if the languages listed below are replaced with their listed equivalent.

Backgrounds[edit]

Most conventional Dungeons & Dragons backgrounds can fit into Hyrule. Particularly suitable options include Charlatan, Folk Hero, Hermit, Outlander, and Sailor.

Make Your Own Background[edit]

Seriously, picking from a list is really lame. What happened to the days when you made up whatever kind of character you wanted? It isn't difficult to make up a bond, a flaw, and an ideal.

Want a Good Story?[edit]

Work with your DM to come up with a good, enjoyable background.

Want to Optimize?[edit]

Choose two skills; you're proficient in those. Then choose any one tool to be proficient in, and one language to know outside of those provided by your race.

Want Something Fun or Silly?[edit]

Roll a d20 two times. That determines your two skill proficiencies from your background, according to the chart below. Re-roll any duplicates.
