Primeval Thule: Tribal Outcast for D&D 5th Edition

Backgrounds here are bases on the Narratives in Primeval Thule, so they will gain abilities as a character levels.  They are only intended for use in the Primeval Thule setting and are not designed to be mixed with standard Backgrounds.

Also, some of the abilities require the expenditure of a resource, for this reason and for how dangerous the setting is, each character gains the Lucky Feat for free and may take the Lucky Feat one additional time.


Tribal Outcast


Areas of Proficiency (1st level): You are proficient in Nature and Survival.

Langauges (1st level): One of your choice.

Tools (1st level): One of your choice.

Isolated Action (Level 1):  You can spend a Luck point when you make an attack roll against a target, and if no creatures other than you are adjacent to that target, you have advantage on the attack roll.
A New Identity (6th level): You pick up the practices of a new life, and while you’ll always have your heritage, you have new experiences that mold you. You gain the 1st-level Skill Bonuses from a second background from Primeval Thule. You can only apply the bonus from one background at a time.
Optionally this is a feat and can only be taken if you have this background and are at least 4th level, additionally you gain +1 Charisma.

Triumphant Return (10th level): Your former tribe is ready for reconciliation. Whether you accept the offer is up to you, but as a token of sincerity, you have been given a tribal heirloom. Work with your GM to choose an appropriate magic item of (up to 25,000 gp in value), which is yours until you return it to your tribe.
Optionally this is a feat and can only be taken if you have this background and are at least 8th level.
