Anyone can take Arcane Background as long as they aren't explicitly barred from it, and have the game master's permission (it is
a Background edge, they do require that).
Of the Iconic Frameworks, the Glitter Boy, most MARS variants, and Dragon can all take Arcane Background after character creation; assuming racial choices allow it for the first two. All the other frameworks either already have the edge (and thus cannot take it again) or are forbidden from taking the edge. Also, Flame Wind Dragons can take any AB, except psionic
, so they don't have a defined power list. No one really wants to write up the power list for the dragon cleric of Athletics God, the Harvest God, and the Wiccan God, when that page space could be used for useful things like guns, D-Bees, or Mega Powers.
