Golden Sun: Eternal Night

Weyard is in peril! Though the empires and people of the world live in blinding prosperity, an untold darkness is approaching. A touch of discord starts it all: a conflict between the humans of Alhafra and the Beastmen of Garoh sends sparks that threaten to ignite the entire world. Behind it all a sinister force lurks in the shadows, waiting for the right moment to strike and claim ultimate power. Will the fate that the Ancients were afraid of come to pass? Will Weyard be destroyed by the power of Alchemy...or saved by it?

The GameWelcome to Golden Sun: Eternal Night. This is a Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition game based on the successful Gameboy Advance RPG series Golden Sun. What's that? You say there was a game on the DS? I think you're crazy. That's crazy talk. GET OUT.

Aherm, where was I? The game takes place 500 years after the end of Golden Sun 2. If you have not played Golden Sun and Golden Sun 2, be warned that there are tremendous spoilers for those games here. Alchemy is no longer a myth: it is the driving force of the world, catapulting it towards powerful technologies and philosophy. In this world, almost all people are adepts, tugging at the elemental fabric of reality to create what they desire out of it. This is the world of Weyard, 500 years after the dawn of the Golden Sun.
What I'm Looking ForI am looking for 5 players to enter this mysetrious world full of surprises and wonder with me. I am looking for a balanced team (that means a Defender, Striker, Leader and Controller) with 1 wild card. All specific setting information can be found here, while all houserule information can be found here.

Also, I hope you like gaming without experience points, because there are no experience points in this game. You will be awarded levels when appropriate, at a rate that could be described as "frequent."
What Classes/Races are allowedI will start with what is not allowed: nothing from Heroes of Shadow will be allowed in this game. By association, this also means no classes that use the Shadow power source will be allowed. If you had your heart set on something from these two fields, I apologize, but I simply won't let you.

When it comes to character races, only 7 races exist in Eternal Night. The races include human, Proxian (Dragonborn), Lemurian (Eladrin), Beastmen (Shifter), Dwarves, Treants (Wilden) and Ascended (Genasi). All background information on these races can be found here. Humans and Lemurians look the same (as in no long pointy elf ears!), save for the defining characteristics of Lemurians (aquamarine hair and either blue or green eyes).

Also, when you pick your class, remember to choose one of the mandatory backgrounds provided in the houserules thread: your background is exceptionally important for this game, and you can't go without it! Themes will not be allowed.
ApplicationsAll character applications are to be posted under the game's application thread, in their own thread. Instructions on what I'm looking for can be found in the thread as well. If you are going to apply with a statblock, please apply as Level 3 characters.
When Does the Ad Close?This ad will close either on the 13th of September, or if/when I decide I like enough of the entries to make a selection.
