Government Background Edit
This set of background activities includes jobs performed for those who work for the a city, provinvial, or national government- other than those in the army or navy, who are covered under the military and maritime backgrounds described below.
Most of the recognition associated with a government background comes in the form of increases in rank (whether military or civilian in nature).
Each activity in this background is associated with a particular skill- the one mentioned first in the entry's Skills column. A character's ranks in that skill provide a bonus on recognition checks.
