DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY TRACK
- The witch-kin background was inspired by Joseph Delaney's The Last Apprentice books, particularly by the character of Alice. I was listening to Gehenna's "A Witch is Born" while writing it, if that helps.
- The Knight of St. Othric background came about directly due to player action in the current campaign I'm running. The Knights of St. Othric were just a throw-away dying organization I placed in a single adventure, but player interest in them (and interest in restarting the order) meant that now the Knights are totally a thing in the setting.
- The White Raven Agent background was inspired a bit by Bloodborne, but I also wanted a background for the faction most likely to figure into the same aims that player characters tend to follow.
