If there is an Almost the Chosen One background, what background would cover the Chosen One?--209.97.85.48 13:04, 13 February 2016 (MST)

Mechanically, this background looks like an excuse to get whatever combination of proficiencies you want. Simply out of option power, that actually make this background slightly unbalanced. It also makes all of the other backgrounds mechanically irrelevant. Finally, it also makes this background flavorless and directionless. --Kydo (talk) 01:28, 17 February 2016 (MST)

Kydo, I sorta agree with you, but what I REALLY wanted to know is what background (or backgrounds) would cover the Chosen One.--209.97.85.48 18:33, 17 February 2016 (MST)
None so far. Wanna make one? :) --Kydo (talk) 22:50, 17 February 2016 (MST)
I think the best thing to do is have the characters chosen status already established (you'd be like the child in The Golden Child). If the chosen status is unknown, then it's not a thing you were but something you're going to be. Edit: Or better, what if you already achieved the thing you were chosen for? You'd be like the child film star of the medieval era, you already hit your high and it went to your head, now you can't cope with your dwindling fame.

Kydo, I wish I knew where to start.--209.97.85.48 13:29, 20 February 2016 (MST)

I really like the idea of this background but agree it needs a lot of work. I was wondering if the author would allow me to make some changes to see if I could provide a little balancing and direction for this. I didn't want to make any changes without getting permission first since it is not actually my idea. 17:12, 05 March 2017 (MST)
