I was wondering. Where I would find some good places to find some custom backgrounds in D&D 5e for reference when making my own custom campaign and maybe even contribute to the list with my own custom backgrounds. I'm looking for Backgrounds that are like the ones listed in the PHB that have options and are fully fleshed out with traits, ideals, bonds and flaws. Ones that have a player participating would role and receive a random composite of features that create an interesting identity and role playing environment for players to stretch there acting legs in. Anyone know of one?

    \$\begingroup\$ NathanS and Erik, Thank you for getting back to me so quick. I'm just wondering what you mean by shopping. The tour I read through made no mention to Shopping. Is the goal to keep people on the site to maximize ad revenue so linking people to other sources would be prohibited? This is my best guess to what one might mean by I'm shopping. Or is it that you think I'm just posting Questions to get rep enough to contribute to other peoples questions? \$\endgroup\$ – Brian Jun 10 at 17:07

    \$\begingroup\$ Can you explain why making a custom background as described in PHB pages 124-126 isn't an option? A related question is here. "Shopping" is an SE term that covers a broad variety of "where can I find this somewhere else" kinds of questions. That is the class of questions your question seems to fall into. Here is a meta post discussion of what a "shopping" question is \$\endgroup\$ – KorvinStarmast Jun 10 at 17:34

    \$\begingroup\$ Generally "recommend me places to find X" and similar are going to be labeled as shopping. Here is one meta discussion, and if you search for "shopping" on the meta site you will get better definitinos. It's not saying that you are doing anything wrong, just that the question itself is not worded to be a great fit. You can also read the help section about on topic subjects.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Xirema I don't think that's correct .... where did that usage come from? \$\endgroup\$ – KorvinStarmast Jun 10 at 17:40
