Ideas for a background story for nobles
Noble Background Story Idea #1: Your PC once delivered a sealed letter from the king to a powerful noble. Did your curiosity get the best of you? Did you open the envelope while in transit to have a sneak peek? Did a rogue ally of yours reseal it with his or her Forgery Kit? What did the letter say? [If you use Scabard, you can put this information in the secrets section of your character.]
Noble Background Story Idea #2: A noble died and your PC was commissioned to obtain his or her Signet Ring before it was used to illicitly order troops into an open border war. What happened to the ring? Did you find it? If so, did you secretly keep it for yourself? Maybe you actually have the Charlatan Background and not a Noble Background! [If you use Scabard to save your character, you can use connections to show what items you own].
