Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: A background's roleplaying feature should be just that, just a roleplaying feature. It sounds like the feature would allow you to make Perception checks instead of Insight checks, which isn't ok, but whether it was meant to do that is unknown as the feature is still incomplete.
