How did I miss Rangers of Ithilien? Though I really think that background should have been one of those listed for Men of Minas Tirith (perhaps saving Seaman for Men of Gondor).Falenthal wrote: ↑Sat Mar 18, 2017 11:04 amA Ranger's of Ithilien variant of the Men of Gondor, and Dorwinrrim to add some exotic flavour (now that Una is introduced as a main character in the TOR chronology) seem to be very well liked by the public.
Dorwinrrim, in my opinion, might even be a simple Men of Lake-town variant, not necessarily a whole new Culture: change the Bog-stone Reward for a Bottle of Fine Wine, and the Bowman of the Guild Virtue for something else, and you have it.

I'd like to see a way to modify the existing cultures slightly to handle different regions. Much like how Dwarves of the Iron Hills and Erebor Dwarves are mostly the same, with an ability or two swapped out. I think that would allow us to handle most of the cultures on people's wish lists, customize char gen for new areas as desired, and keep things from getting too cluttered. It's a lot easier to swap out an ability for a new culture than to do up a new 5 page write-up with backgrounds, virtues and rewards.

The main points are:
1) Attributes: distribute 14 points, with no score landing higher than 7 or lower than 2.
Primary Attribute - 5 to 7
Secondary Attribute - 4 to 6
Tertiary Attribute - 2 to 4
4) Common Skills: using the skill costs (below), spend 29 points with no skill achieving a final value higher than 3. Underline one skill as being 'favoured'. Favoured skills must have a value of either 2 or 3.
Skill costs: to begin with a starting value of 1, spend one point. To begin with a starting value of 2, spend 3 points. To begin with a starting value of 3, spend 6 points.
10) Each culture has a primary distinctive feature shared by all backgrounds, and 21 secondary distinctive features, which are doubled and split evenly among all the sample backgrounds.
Cautious, Clever, Cunning, Determined, Eager, Fair, Fair-spoken, Generous, Hardy, Just, Lordly, Merciful, Patient, Proud, Reckless, Steadfast, Stern, Tall, True-hearted, Trusty, Wary
Bold, Curious, Determined, Energetic, Generous, Fierce, Forthright, Gruff, Hardened, Hardy, Proud, Reckless, Robust, Steadfast, Suspicious, Swift, Tall, Trusty, Vengeful, Wilful, Wrathful
Dwarves of the Lonely Mountain
Bold, Cautious, Cunning, Determined, Eager, Energetic, Fierce, Gruff, Hardened, Hardy, Honorable, Lordly, Proud, Robust, Secretive, Steadfast, Stern, Suspicious, Vengeful, Wary, Wrathful
Yes, but thats mostly a case of which attributes and skills are prioritized, and what the choices are for which distinctive features. For instance hobbits don't get body as a primary attribute.
