Arcane Backgrounds:
some backgrounds might come into conflict. The blessed and Templars don’t play well with others viewing chi users, shamans, and practitioners of voodoo with suspicion and the tainted with horror. Most citizens in Deadlands will view the tainted with disgust and will plot against them if their powers are known (or in the case of automatons if they realize they are acting on free will) but especially the blessed.
