Elven Backgrounds

by John Walter Biles

In some of the 4E books, you have an option to let PCs take a 'background'. This typically gives a list of two skills and a PC from that background can either add one of those skills to his list of trainable class skills or get a +2 bonus with one of them.

I am contemplating whether each clan in Alfheim should count as a background, or some other way to make Clan choice have a little impact.

One could do, say--

Chossum: Bluff or Streetwise
Erendyl: Diplomacy or History
Feadiel: Arcane or Dungeoneering
Grunalf: Nature or Religion
Longrunner: Athletics or Endurance
Mealidil: Arcane or Religion
Red Arrow: Endurance or Intimidate
