Dragonmarked House Backgrounds

While the default backgrounds contained in the Pathfinder 2nd Edition can cover many things in the world of Eberron, sometimes you want something a bit more specific. See pg 60 of PF2 Core for more on Backgrounds.

Dragonmarked Houses 
These are all Uncommon Backgrounds and should check with your GM before taking them. Information about Dragonmarked Houses can be found starting on pg 231 of the ECS 3.5. House backgrounds are to represent those that have grown up in the business of the House be it direct family, cousins or someone who has an apprenticeship within so there shouldn’t be any limits based on ancestry. All the following will have Lore in their appropriate House. While they of course can Recall Knowledge about their own House they should also be able to Recall Knowledge about other Houses but at an increased DC.
I also suggest, at GM’s Approval of course, to allow Dragonmarked Houses Lore to cover areas normally part of other skills IF appropriate for the House of course BUT once more at an increased DC or for more advanced things. Examples could be House Jorasco Lore to Administer First Aid or Treat Disease while House Vadalis Lore could Handle Animal on a horse or magebred animal.
Of course these backgrounds shouldn’t be required for a player to be part of a Dragonhouse as their plenty of fitting backgrounds; these are just expanded options to hand more flavor be it mechanical or just fluff.
