Choose one Major Human Background and two Minor Human Backgrounds

Major Human Backgrounds

Myriad Weapon Schools [Background, Human]
Name a weapon and there is a school of weapon mastery that trains humans in it from a young age.

Benefit: Choose a single weapon (not category). You gain proficiency with that weapon. You gain one technique that requires that weapon's category as a bonus technique.

Mystic Survivalcraft [Background, Human]

In the homesteads and farming communities, the young are taught basic survival magic in case they are caught outside the walls alone.

You gain a racial bonus +3 to Spellcraft checks and start play with a ritual book and the rituals akua creae, flaer creae, and vitae creae.

Discarnate Legacy [Background, Human]

The propensity for discarnate affinity is highly pronounced in humans and their offspring.

Benefit: You gain Discarnate Affinity. You also gain the Discarnate subtype. (Discarnate subtype: Darkvision 60ft, Immortality/-10 + character level [You do not start dying until you reach this many negative HP], and vulnerability +5 fire and ash chalk]

Universal Appeal [Background, Human]
Humans have a reputation for relationships amid the other races. Earned or not, some of them embrace this whole-heartedly.

Benefit: Add +2 to the Will saving DCs of all your Charms, Compulsions and Bardic Spectacles. You also gain a +1 racial bonus to Diplomacy checks vs. non-humans.

Strength of Faith [Background, Human]
Devotion to the gods, especially the Vishnari Pantheon, is a cornerstone of most Erean human cultures, but in some individuals, this devotion goes beyond the pale.

Benefit: Prayers you use are cast at a +1 caster level and have a +1 to their DCs.

Minor Human Backgrounds

Studious Inspiration [Background, Human]
Having a special knack for a given skill sometimes leads to impressive results.

Benefit: Once per day, you may choose to gain a +5 racial bonus to the skill you choose with your Variable Study ability.

City Staples [Background, Human]
Life in the larger cities is distinctly different from that in rural areas, and some things the people of the countryside don't even know about are essentials there.

Benefit: You start play with one of the following: a bicycle, a pocket watch, a self-warming and cooling pitcher, or a portable library (least).

Martial Flexibility [Background, Human]

The combat teachings of human cultures encourage the seamless blending of multiple fighting styles into a peerless whole.

Benefit: Switching battle stances is a swift action for you instead of a move-equivalent action.

Homestead Hero [Background, Human]
The far-flung homesteads and farming enclaves take whatever advantages they can get in defending themselves. Sometimes, all they can get are their own tools and some creativity.

Benefit: You gain a +1 racial bonus to attack and damage when using farm tools as improvised weapons and can use techniques with them as if they were part of the closest approximate non-improvised weapon group (eg pitchforks and hoes as polearms, shovels as hammers, trowels as light blades, etc).

String and Prayer [Background, Human]
The curious ability for humans to use anything as a tool is the source of many of their solutions, but also many problems.

Benefit: When you use the Jury Rig function of the Mechanics skill, your rigging lasts an additional number of rounds equal to your INT modifier.

Underdog Surge [Background, Human]
Humans are at their best when put against bleak odds. Only then will their true power show itself.

Benefit: Whenever you are flanked, you gain a +1 racial bonus to attack the flanking creatures.

Hard Bargainer [Background, Human]

Unlike most other cultures, most human cultures expect haggling as part of their day-to-day interactions.

Benefit: Once per day, when you fail a skill roll while haggling, you may re-roll the check.
