A Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Background

You either own or lease a large amount of land, which you cultivate to make a living for yourself. You could support yourself or a boss by harvesting certain crops a couple of times per year, or by cultivating cattle for slaughter or milk production. Likewise, grapes or other fruits might serve as the basis of a good wine or an exquisite dinner. Rather than working the land yourself, although this might still be the case if the land isn’t that big, you have laborers working for you.

Skill Proficiencies: One of Animal Handling, Athletics, Perception, and Persuasion. You also gain Survival.

Tool Proficiencies: One type of Artisan Tools that fits your type of cultivation.

Languages: One of your choice.

Equipment: One type of Artisan Tools (see above), a scroll of inventory of your land, a quarterstaff, a rake or shovel, and a belt pouch containing 10 GP.

Feature: What the Future will Bring

You have a decent sense of what the weather will do over the next couple of days. With a successful DC 15 Survival check, you have an idea of what the weather will be like for the next week or more.

In addition, you have a sense of how the market on crops and livestock will develop over the next year when you stay in town for at least a day and listen in on political developments, draughts, divine interventions, and such.
