Themes for Mystara

Post by Birchbeer » Mon Oct 03, 2011 5:06 pm

In my review of the themes so far, I've been trying to figure out the best way to give a character a better feel for having a background rooting in Mystara. First I went with the character background but it still seems kind of weak. Having certain feats picked out seems to limit character diversity, and I'm not a huge fan of it (though sometimes it does illustrate this the best).

I've been looking at the themes and I think it would work the best. It'll allow the character to be better tied to their starting origin without forcing them to give up a feat. I'm unsure how many themes would be needed, and if existing themes could be ported over. I've not created any themes, but has anyone else done that or assigned themes to specific countries?

I have used themes in 4e with the latest campaign that I am a player in.
I built 3-4 characters and none of the themes forced me into power or feat choices.
did I just pick a theme that didn't force a choice?
I will have to go back and look. The powers I recieved were in addition to my normal powers, so themes seemed like a bonus. maybe I just got lucky as a player.
