View Full Version : Custom background in Pathfinder 2.0

November 3rd, 2019, 19:47
How do I add a custom background in PC generation? I want to add the Hellknight Historian. I hope I don't have to buy the module, Age of Ashes, just to add that background after spending $60 on the core rule book here. Say it ain't so.:cry:

You can make your own decals (that's the image in the middle of the screen) using this tool https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?47834-Decal-extension-maker or this one https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?47848

You'll need an image of course and I don't know if the one you want is publicly available.

There's also this utility which creates a theme https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?47787-Utility-Background-Theme-Maker-for-FG-(All-Rulesets)

Now having said all that I do not know for sure whether these will work in PF2 but I think they should.

Sorry I wasn't clear. I meant the actual character's background, not the program background. But that's good info anyway, thanks! :)

And I figured it out later. Yay.

I also don't see a class kit for the druid, for gear, and that is in the core book. I guess I can add those manually so no big deal.

Moving to the PF2 forum; so that the PF2 developer can answer your question.

GMs can add custom backgrounds in the campaign data "Backgrounds" list. If it's not showing in the desktop sidebar you can access the "Backgrounds" data list from the top of the library window.
