- Support. A great choice for players looking for a less law-abiding game. It's a well made choice. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:09, 17 December 2019 (MST)
- Neutral. The "vanilla" progression of a PC is from a humble origin to a famous hero. This background wants to bypass that and make the PC already a famous hero, and doesn't do the actual job of a background which is to say what the PC was before they were an adventurer. In my opinion this background also makes your PC look like a tiresome edgelord. Marasmusine (talk) 08:44, 15 March 2020 (MDT)
- Oppose. I agree with Maras' point about the skipping past the hero phase. It doesn't exactly sound 5e-esque in that regard to me, more like 4e maybe, since that edition specifies PCs as heroes more overtly. This is also rather edgy, especially with the Dark Gift alternative. I could see this definitely as a good background for some specific game settings, but as a general background for more generic settings, I don't think it would mesh very well.--Yanied (talk) 10:22, 5 October 2020 (MDT)
