What do you think is the best starting background for archers?
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.
No backround at all is good to but al the rest kinda match
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.
Your're really not going to give up on that whole 'Whorerack' thing are you?
