A Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Background

Working for the boss, providing text for court, being an accountant at a bank, or making sure everything that is happening is managed in an orderly fashion. A clerk manages numbers and texts to support the workload of others or to make sure that everything is recorded correctly. Some operate almost unseen while others are sought after because of their incredible skill set. Whatever your ambition in life, you use your knowledge and investigative skills to make a difference.

Skill Proficiencies: History and Investigation

Tool Proficiencies: Either the Calligrapher’s Supplies or the Forgery Tools.

Languages: One of your choice.

Equipment: A set of tools decided by your tool proficiency, a quill and an inkwell, 10 sheets of paper, and a belt pouch containing 10 GP.

Feature: Understanding the Context

Whenever you are following a paper trail, you understand what is written down and what is left out. If any writing text or calculations have a gap in them that is trying to hide true meaning or numbers, you can detect these by careful study.

In addition, when confronted with people that are trying to outsmart you with legal terms or other types of rules, you can use your history skill as either a deception, intimidation, or persuasion check to make your arguments.
