    Default Homebrew affiliation:The Silver Wolves of Ebberon [Ebberon 3.5] [PEACH]

    The Silver Wolves of Ebberon

    Symbol: A full moon with the pic of a howling wolf in silver in the center of it.

    Background:
    The Silver Wolves of Ebberon evolved out of small scouting parties that where charged with looking for intruders in their lands and expelling them with the right amount of force and effort needed. However when the purge came about and many of the shifters where put into the shifter prison camps unfortunately so where their scouts, trackers and hunters that made up the bases for the shifter rangering corp. that where later given a chance to prove that the shifters where not evil like their lycanthropic relatives. Those brave shifters that answered the call to arms would soon be know as the Silver Wolves of Ebberon. The reason the Silver flame gave them this opportunity was due to necessity; due to the fact the the Silver Flame had spread it's self thin at the time of the purge and with the lycanthopic population growing they knew they need more man power but they did not just need them for their man power they need them for their tracking experience, they where need for their survival skills as well as their ability to go into many places that even some of the Flame most elite paladins would not dare tread. The flame need light and extremely mobile strike forces that could move in and do what ever is necessary whither it be just go in and scout enemy position or to go in a eliminate the threat all together. After they proved them selves in the purge the Flame stated to trust them and used their services when ever the situation called for their skills. However they are often called to defend Thrane aginst the forces of Karrnath which actually is beneficial to the the shifters in two ways 1, it help their union between them and the flame and 2, it also helps protects there homes in the Elden Reach keep in mind there is only one thing in between the Eldeen Reach and Karrnath and that is Thrane. It is also due to the closeness that these shifters have gotten to the members of the Flame that actual started spreading the Flame thought the hearts of these shifters and stared them on the same path as the Templar in regards to eliminating the evil in the same quick and decisive manner, and so there after these proud groups of shifters where called The Silver Wolves of Ebberon, and where ever evil may hide they now know that their is someone on the hunt for them and their is nowhere on ebberon that they will not be found and when they are found they will not know what hit them

    Goals:
    To rid the world of forces that threaten their well being, and to protect their lands whither it be on their lands or in enemy territory to prevent an attack on their home lands. They also wish to prove that the shifters are not like the lycanthropes. That where almost hunted into extinction during the purge. An prove that normal folk do not have to fear them and that they can live in peace side by side.

    Foes and Allies:
    They fight any one who intends to cause harm the the shifters and their ways of life, wither it be demon, devil, aberration, lycanthopic, or evil in general. Some of their biggest foes are the Order of the Emerald Claw, which some may call the Vol's counter parts to the Silver wolves, the Lords of Dust, and the Cult of the Dragons Below! They find any good organizations as allies especial the Silver Flame. Even though they are not widely appreciated or greatly liked by many of it members due to there blood lines some Silver Flame commanders see them as fodder while others may not say it openly they respect them for fighting for there cause even thought they are not very well liked by the members of the flame; but the Silver Wolves just see it as another thing to obstical that needs to be over come like it or not they need each other in one way or another. However the Silver Wolves will still take the job that most mercenary's won't take. As long as it is in the name of the greater good of their kind and their allies.

    I just saw it.

    It's pretty nice although on the Sneak Attack one how about +1 per die of damage?
    Having trouble writing up hard stat blocks but I'm doing a lot of sharing ideas and soft mechanics lately.

    I thought about it but it would make a few pc's grow in rank just a little too fast for my taste.

    It's spelled, "Eberron."

    While I haven't had much use for affiliations, I thought I'd respond since you didn't get much feedback and because I was away for a while, I'm getting back to some older items.

    Your affiliation has too specific a requirement for use in a more general campaign. PCs must be shifters to join which severely hampers them from being used in most campaigns.

    Also, your text is very dense. It might help if you break it up some and some spell checking wouldn't hurt. For example

    Spoiler
    Show

    The Silver Wolves of Eberron evolved from small scouting parties charged with looking for intruders in their lands and expelling them.

    When the purge came about, many of the shifters where put into prison camps as were the scouts, trackers and hunters that made up The Shifter Rangering Corp.

    Later, the Silver Flame gave some of the shifters an opportunity to prove that the shifters were not evil, unlike their lycanthropic relatives. Those brave shifters that answered the call to arms would soon be know as "The Silver Wolves of Eberron."

    The reason the Silver Flame gave them this opportunity was due to necessity; the Silver Flame had spread itself thin at the time of the purge. With the lycanthopic population growing, they knew they needed more man power and more assistance with tracking experience and survival skills. More importantly, the Silver Flame needed the shifter's ability to go into many places that even some of their most elite paladins would not dare tread.

    The Silver Flame need light and extremely mobile strike forces that could move in and do whatever was necessary--whether it was find out enemy positions or to eliminate the threat all together. After the shifters proved themselves, the Flame started to trust them and used their services whenever the situation called for their skills.

    However they are most often called to defend Thrane aginst the forces of Karrnath, which actually is beneficial to the the shifters in two ways. First, it solidifies their union between them and the Flame. Secondly, it helps protect their homes in the Elden Reach.

    Keep in mind there is only one thing in between the Eldeen Reach and Karrnath: the Thrane. Since the shifters have been so successful at keeping the Thrane at bay, the Silver Flame has begun calling their proud allies "The Silver Wolves of Eberron" as a mark of distinction.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.
