Uthgardt Tribe Member Background 5E

You have spent most of your life in the wilderness away from the civilized world but that doesn’t mean that you know nothing about it. Your work with the Uthgardt Tribe has taught you well about the skills required to work with other people in a group to achieve a common goal.

While many have lost their old ways and cultural values, your tribe has managed to keep them alive and that has kept you strong and united for years while the other tribes have been destroyed amidst all the chaos. But lately, groups have been formed amongst the tribes who have chosen to build towns and change the old ways and settle with the new ones. 

Maybe that’s why your Tribe has put up the Totem as a symbol of the power of all the old traditions that you hold dear to remind those who have strayed from the path of life their Tribe has always been so proud of and people have chosen to come back to their old ways of life.

Perhaps you were one of those who decided to change their old ways of life and settle in town but now they have turned back, leaving you questioning yourself or maybe you never joined those groups but the civilized world has fascinated you and so you have chosen to discover it.
