Game Description:

INTRODUCTION
The Dark Lanterns serve the crown of Breland as spies and assassins. Collectively they form the intelligence division of the King’s Citadel, a much larger organization sworn to defend Breland from its enemies and dispense justice in the name of King Boranel. More than any other division within the Citadel, the Dark Lanterns tend toward intelligence-gathering missions that extend beyond Breland’s borders. As the secret servants of the crown, members of the organization are granted the authority to conduct intelligence operations on foreign soil, execute covert missions across the globe, and prevent national secrets from falling into the hands of rival intelligence agencies. The Dark Lanterns also have an unwritten license to eliminate any creature that threatens their nation, its sovereign, or its citizens.

The King’s Dark Lanterns were vital to Breland’s defense during the Last War. However, conspiracies abound in the aftermath of war as nations struggle to rebuild and reclaim what was lost. The Thronehold Accords have done nothing to end the secret conflicts being waged across the Five Nations—conflicts steeped in espionage and subterfuge. With the threat of another war looming on the horizon, Breland needs its Dark Lanterns now more than ever.
APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS[Game Master]
Me, Sillaric of course.

[Game Explanation]
I managed to wonderfully fill my Agents of the Twelve group and mostly fill the Dark Lanterns group from the last advertisement. I am only short some sort of healer for the Dark Lanterns group.

[Application Process]
Post your application as a new thread in game's Applications folder linked below, in the following format (you can make a sheet and include your statblock at the bottom if you want, but it cannot replace the regular format):

Character Name:
Gender/Race:
Class:

Physical/Personality Description: A paragraph or more (2 max please) describing your character's physical appearance and personality. If you want to put secrets into your characters personality you can "private tag" them in this area. Include how your character reacts to stress/danger, how your character dresses in the field, in the tavern, etc and how he/she generally deals with others socially.

Background: No more than 6 paragraphs (1-2 is fine if you can get the point across that quickly). Please see below for some guidance on how this needs to be. Important, this section must explain how your character was recruited by Eberron's premier spy organization.

Writing Sample: This can be a sample from a game you're in already but I'd rather it be something you've written for this character. It doesn't have to be super long, just do some in-character writing to show case who your character is and show off that you are capable of solid grammar and spelling.

A PICTURE WOULD ALSO BE HELPFUL BUT ISN'T NECESSARY EITHER.

PLEASE POST APPLICATIONS IN THE APPLICATION FOLDER ON THE GAME FORUM, NOT IN THIS THREAD PLEASE

[Character Creation]
Creation will be standard for a character starting at level 4, using a 28-pt buy, with 5400gp for equipment. Every character receives one free feat but it must be either a Dragonmark Feat or an Eberron-specific Racial Feat. LA buy-off is not allowed. Creatures with an LA or Racial HD up to 2 are acceptable for use but nothing with a base size larger than Medium unless you come up with something really really good and it must meet all the guidelines above.

A special note regarding FR-specific races, skills and classes. Nothing from an FR-specific source will be allowed without very specific DM approval.

[Sources allowed]
I have access to most everything from 3.5e and of course all Eberron supplements are acceptable. I don't like weird, way out their builds, so if you decide to use a little known supplement please give any needed title and page numbers please. I'm not opposed to monster characters, especially since many of the races considered monstrous in other game worlds are considered commonplace in Eberron.

[NOTES]
Feel free to PM with any questions but know that I will likely post the answer here for all to see (it cuts down on repeating myself). Also please note that I am only recruiting for a character to fill a Healer's role with this group.

[SUBMISSION DEADLINE]
I will close the advertisement thread on Friday November 30th at midnight or sooner if a complete application just jumps off the screen at me.

Well, my interest is obvious.

Interesting.

EDIT: Tashalatora Warforged coming up in the future.

Wiz, may I ask how do you manage to play in so many games and still apply for more?
Not that I have anything against you, on the contrary, you are an awesome player and I remember your character from the Last War campaign well.

More on topic, I will try to create something for this game. 12 days is a long time, though, and I may get lost in a maze of conflicting but equally cool character concepts as happened for the last two Eberron games that I promised to apply to. To me a shorter deadline forces my mind into overdrive and the chance of creating an awesome character increases. That's just me, of course.

Interested. Will be dropping a cleric on the Applications folder.

Edit: Hmm, I was thinking cleric, but I think I'll go Favored Soul instead. don't worry, I still plan on being a healy type: Just wanted to try something different. Is a favored soul weaker than a cleric, sure, but who cares. I'd rather do what's fun.

Don't worry Animunculi. If we get a really good response I'll make the wait worthwhile and if we have a smaller turnout I'll call it sooner anyway so get to character creating!

On a side note, Elf Dilettante is a racial specific feat, but not Eberron specific (it's from Races of the Wild). Does it qualify as the free feat? Also, any problem with Mia being a Gray Elf, I don't know if in your Eberron world you prefer to tease out the sub-races of elves to specific racial groups within the world. Finally, will you be having flaws and traits at all?

On a side note, I know I'm listed in a lot of games, but most of them are dead. I have a resistance to taking a character out of a game, so the only way they drop of my list is when they are archived.
