  • Do all characters with an Arcane Background have access to Trappings?

    The core rulebook prominently mentions Trappings for the magic-based Iconic Frameworks, but for psionic characters, Trappings are only mentioned for the Burster. Do only these characters have access to Trappings, or can anyone with an Arcane Background use them?

    Trappings are part of the core rules for all Arcane Backgrounds, but they should fit the type of AB since their purpose is to give each its unique look.

    The only magic Iconic Framework which really goes into Trappings is the Mystic and that's because their special Trappings are only available to them. The others just tend to say they can use any Trappings except Necromantic since that's listed in the core, is typically a "magic" Trapping, but in the Rifts setting is limited to necromancers.

    AB: Psionics can choose whatever Trappings fit their particular style. Bursters usually go fire/heat but as the masters of all psionics, Mind Melters would be open to any the GM feels would fall under psionics.

    Hope that helps.
