I like the idea of a Bard-type background because it adds the option of having Performance on characters who are not Rogues and we are not likely to have the actual Bard class in the game. I picked Acrobatics and Sleight of Hand because they would be useful for an entertainer. Scimitars were picked because they are a light, finesseable weapon Rogues do not get.


Typos happen. More so on the phone.
