|Heroic Action Role-Play|
You are not from these parts - which is wherever the campaign is placed. This can be geographically or socially - being raised in an isolated court, convent, or ghetto makes you a foreigner in other parts of the very same city. A very cosmopolitan campaign makes this limitation less applicable.
As a foreigner you are always somewhat out of place. You lack contacts and everyday knowledge of local conditions, customs, and fashions - you will always seem somewhat out of place. This hampers the knowledge and contacts elements of your skills. This can also be used as an excuse for an unusual background - as a foreigner, you can have character concepts and powers alien to the culture you are in.
