    If you don't mind starting out with low Intelligence Charisma Beauty: Because of the DX Bonus
    Troll Offspring(-Beauty -Charisma)
    Raised in the Pits(-Intelligence and -Money)
    Beat with an Ugly Stick (-Beauty)

    In Beat by an Ugly Stick and Raised in the Pits you start out with a bonus points to all fighting skills.

    I would prefer Raised in the Pits.

    Raised in the Pits give you a huge IN decrease, not good for a tech archer.

    Beat with an Ugly Stick can be ok, except that it is annoying when everyone attacks you on sight.
    Troll Offspring... Need to think.

    hyperactive helps a little with +1 dex bt -1 charisma, and so does does raised by monks, with +1 perception, though starting out with a lot less money. raised by orcs is good.

    Raised by monks is the best becouse money is easy to get but try geting a free point.

    Raised in the Pits is best, but only if you don't want a tech bow. But with ellumyn's bow why bother with tech?

    You could always make your own background.

    That's because Solaris is such a sucker for the Pyrotechnic Bow. :)
