About this mod

A small mod, that allows some basic choices about the dragonborn's background.

Permissions and credits
So far you get a choice of different backgrounds and get (weak) gear and some gold related to the given answer. This makes the normal start slightly different, but doesn't have a major impact on the following game.

Perks are already awarded for each choice and give some small boosts, that are hopefully noticeable enough to be worthwhile.

This should be compatible with everything else, since it just runs a short script at the beginning and distributes standard items. Compatibility with Alternate Start mods has been confirmed for example.
