Originally created by Windyplains as a member of the Floris team, this presentation was inspired as a replacement to the original one designed by rubik (Custom Commander mod). This was done to combine a number of starting menus into a single presentation as well as now give you the ability to see what your statistical benefits should be for a given combination prior to entering the game. Several mod options that are permanently set for a given save game, such as type of troop trees, mod difficulty or quest difficulty are chosen here as well.
The background options for your father's occupation, your early life, your adult life and your reason for adventuring may be selected by using their associated drop down menus. Minor changes to the starting statistical benefits for each background have been as well as several new background options were added.
You may select your starting region now as a drop menu on the right side of the screen. Beyond designating your starting city there are now minor proficiency benefits based upon which area you choose.
A complete list of all the possible background choices and their influence on your character's skills, attributes and proficiencies can be seen in the image to the right.
