World of Darkness: Gotham has quite a bit of expanded and modified material and systems when it comes to the Backgrounds Trait. Some Backgrounds have had to be adjusted heavily because they are outdated or their definitions need to be adjusted for this particular setting.

We’ve also introduced to all venues a few neat features that were more common to Mage: the Ascension than to other venues. However, these features are in no way MtA specific and other venues should benefit from the depth that both features add to the setting and the denizens of New York City.

These features are:

Differential Backgrounds

Stackable Backgrounds - Must take Alternate ID.

Adversarial Backgrounds

For information on what Backgrounds are available, please refer to the table below and click on each link for a detailed explanation of each background modification.
