Ancient Magic and Present Threats
by Chris Tulach

The regions of the Realms are full of a variety of people with backgrounds as varied as their geography. In this article, we present a number of paragon paths and feats for Realms characters who have selected a regional background.

The Forgotten Realms setting is a vast place, and heroes can emerge from anywhere, rising from their commonplace lives to thwart danger and show remarkable courage. In the Forgotten Realms Player's Guide, a large selection of backgrounds is available for player characters, and each one is tied to a region. These backgrounds give a player inspiration for determining their character's place in the world as well as providing a regional benefit.
