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

Link to APPLICATIONS folder: http://www.myth-weavers.com/forumdis...23415&tg=29801

[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.

Alright. I read your rules and I'm just clarifying I understand them but am asking for an exception.

You said no LA buy off- that's fine- you also said no size larger than Medium. The nature of PbP is that this campaign will probably hit Level 5 and conclude- unless you've some method of rushing level progression.

I'm asking for a weird favor.

Unless any other applicant disagrees- let me play a Warforged Charger. The loyal, faithful and powerful "Attack dog" of the group. It's LA+4, the HD, BAB and AC granted from the race will keep me alive, the high Con and High Strength will ensure I can kill what I need to, the large size will let me pin down dangers.

I'm not asking for anything other than to allow the Warforged Charger as my "Class" for this game. If the game does level up I'll take Barbarian to negate my speed penalties.

I'll look for solid reasons to be loyal and faithful to my comrades- perhaps if ones an artificer I could also have been created within the group?

The roleplay-ability here is....amazing. And I'd love it if you could step back from the rules and assess it on the level of how awesome it would be for the group to be protected by a giant warforged "Guard dog"

In case you wanted to judge it for merit, the below is an example of the pure mechanics of it; 28 point buy with racial traits added and minused.

http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetvie...sheetid=469195

I intend to play him as a newly created construct (low intelligence) with almost no interaction with the world or its citizens (low charisma)- who doesn't understand his own strength or power (huge strength and constitution). He's not "Dumb" and doesn't speak in "Me hit big thing now" he just.... doesn't grasp things well yet. His faithful beyond all rhyme and reason though- and would remain loyal to his group through anything.

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.
Elf Dilettante is a perfectly acceptable feat for use but not for the free feat in the game. That free feat is specifically to help Eberronize your character. In general for the core races it was designed to allow a player to take a Dragonmark feat. You could also take something like Right of Counsel as well. As to subraces, no I wasn't planning on using any of the core subraces (Gray, High, etc). I like the way Elves are written/statted for Eberron.

That sounds right up my alley. I've got no special attachment to Pathfinder's, I just wanted to make it clear that such a thing existed in a system that's close to 3.5 if nothing else. I don't have Faiths of Eberron unfortunately, but if Sillaric approves of it, hopefully I can get the basic information.
Thanks Snark, this is how I would recommend doing it as well!

No on Racial Paragons. I could be persuaded to look into Guilds but I leave the door open to denying you later on. Let me know what you have in mind!

So, I can't take her as a Gray Elf... oops, that's how I listed her in the title of her application thread. A point though. None of the other elves have any sub race characters at all (meaning that as far as I can tell, they have cultural variation - but aside from the Drow, they have no different characteristics between them... and nothing special is listed for Khorvaire elves at all.

Also, what about flaws and traits?

Awesome. Do you have Faith of Eberron so I know how much it costs/what it changes if anything? My original thought was a monk due to the arm being more like a claw, but I could see flavor making that a shield of sorts while he uses his normal arm for one-handed weapons.

Sorry about that Epicosity. I meant to answer this last time. Go ahead and write something up. My biggest issue is with the logistical issue of Large PCs...but blow me away with your app and I'll see what I can do.

No on Traits and Flaws, sorry. Yes that is accurate in terms of differences between elves and I think that is precisely what Keith and James wanted with this world. I love the subraces of FR and how they are used but I like the fact that all elves in Eberron are essentially descendents of the same people (the escaped slaves of Xen'drik's giant overlords).

CG, see your PM box!

Well, perhaps I should seriously consider a different character then. Let me sleep on it and perhaps I'll have a different application up in the morning.

I'm thinking of playing a kalashtari thoughtsinger, which is a psionic bard variant by Keith Baker. It has better flavor than the ordinary bard to me.

Is that something you would allow, Sillaric?
