When you attempt to learn or recall a piece of lore, if you do not know that information, you often know where and from whom you can obtain it. Usually, this information comes from a library, scriptorium, university, or a sage or other learned person or creature. Your DM might rule that the knowledge you seek is secreted away in an almost inaccessible place, or that it simply cannot be found. Unearthing the deepest secrets of the multiverse can require an adventure or even a whole campaign.
Being in contact with adventurers, leave their life lessons, points of view and behaviors imprinted in you as well. The suggested backgrounds are the most common to pick your personality traits, ideal, bond and flaw. However feel free to add from another background if you feel it fits better the idea of idea of character you have in mind:
Guild Artisan, Hermit, Outlander, Sage, Urchin.
You might opt for your character to take a language or a vehicle instead of one of the tools. Adventurers are always moving around and one of these options might help adding diversity to your choices. If you take this approach, instead of one set of tools in your equipment, you start with a donkey (variant driver), or calligrapher's supplies (variant translator)
