    Erris Iratian, Kalashtar Virtuous Paladin of Pelor

    The crowd's murmur fell silent as a radiant woman stepped forward. Her highly polished armor reflected the sun and lent a glow to her that seemed to emanate from her golden skin. Her hair flared red and fell in curls around the plate. Those who looked into her azure eyes swore that she gave them a blessing, but her lips never moved.

    "I come to lend my sword to what cause may need it. Pelor has blessed me to be here amongst you today."

    Her voice never rose above a whisper, yet all around her heard, and heard the silent amazement of the other onlookers.

    "I am Erris, a humble Kalashtar servant of the holy sun, born into lands far away from your reckoning. Let me be among those to serve the greater good and I will shine Pelor's light where needed."

    The crowd looked at each other in amazement. Who was this dream in bathed in gold?

    Erris prayed to be let in...and prayed to let the madness at the reliquary be confined to the past.

    Weylan Whitemoon - Eladrin Swordmage|Warlock

    An eladrin with a long glaive strapped to his back steps forward from the crowd. With a flourish and a grin, he half-mockingly bows towards the courtier and says, "Well, if ya'd like, I suppose I could offer my services to ya. Weylan Whitemoon, at your service! I should warn ya, though...I don't come cheap. But don't you worry, 'cuz after the King sees what a great job I've done, he'll probably give ya a promotion or somethin' just for findin' me!"

    Akra Pellicas, Dragonborn Cleric of Avandra

    A Dragonborn clad in chainmail made his way through the crowd and to where names were being taken.

    "Morning," the cleric greeted the man. "I'm here to save the village and stab everything else with the pointy end of this spear thingy. Except you, of course."

    Matrim Tryal: Half Elf Paladin

    A man walked with little resistance through the crowd, clad in enough Plate to seemingly cover a warhorse. His tapered ears identified him as a Half-Elf.

    "I'll take the assignment." He said simply with an outstretched hand.

    Here's mine: Chester, the Dwarven (Halfling) Aerialist Rogue


    As the sun dipped below the horizon, the wagon that Chester had hitched into Tanis in finally pulled up to the courtyard of the Guard barracks. With a wave to the driver, Chester was off, scurrying through the crowd. Word of the new auxiliary recruitment had taken its time in reaching the forest, and it was a full days wagon ride from there to Tanis; Chester hoped he wasn't late.

    Entering the hall, he saw the mass of applicants was still large, despite the fact that the guard reps seemed to be packing things up. He rolled beneath the legs of a massive dragonborn, drawing a snort from huge creature. Regaining his feet, he bounded towards a stack of crates and leapt. Planting one diminutive foot onto the top of the pile, he launched himself over the line of applicants, and landed directly on the table, to the shock of the clerks finishing the day's work. With a flourish, he dropped his application onto the top of the pile.

    "Chester's the name, and it is your lucky day, m' good sirs. From traps to trolls and everything in between, I'm your man!"

    Nall, (Dark) Elf Assassin

    "May I suggest," says a man who had been leaning unnoticed against the wall, "that you send someone that is not all about flash? Big magic is all well and good, but there are times when you need a more delicate touch. We don't know yet what kind of mission we are in for, true, but if it had been simply to kill some goblins the regular troops would be used. I have a feeling that we'll need more than bright swords and big explosions."

    Another character I was playing around with: Asteron Stormfury, Minotaur Barbarian

    An enormous minotaur wades slowly and patiently through the crowd, carefully moving those around him so he does not hurt them. A massive axe, its head like a saw, hangs over his shoulders. He approaches the clerk and looks down upon him before speaking in a deep rumble. "If it is trouble you are expecting, or any kind of battle, then you should send the strongest warriors" he says, picking the clerk up between his thumb and forefinger to look him in the face. "That would be me" he says before depositing the clerk back down on the ground. "I am Asteron, and I am a warrior of power and skill."

    When do submissions close, out of curiosity?

    I haven't made my decision yet, so if SuperRuper wants to add in a background and Kevin Brown wants to make an app, I'll consider them. No extension of the submission deadline, I'll decide whenever I have time, so get them in quick!

    Robaki: Drow Revenant Swarm Druid


    “Excuse me, pardon me,” said a voice as its source pushed his way through the crowd. Those close enough turned to its source, a curse on the tips of their tongues as they wondered who this person was that thought themselves so important as to cut in front of everyone else. However when they saw who the voice belonged to, they closed their mouths and step aside. What looked like a cave elf with ashen grey skin, and pitch black eyes pushed his way towards the desk.

    “My name is Robaki and I am interested in participating in this task if it pleases you,” placing his hands on his desk, the drow revenant gave his most diplomatic smile, “I have an extensive knowledge of the natural world and how to control its powers to my benefit. I’m sure you will find my talents most ben....”

    The revenants words trailed off as several worms slipped out of the sleeves of his robes and began slithering along the courtiers desk. “I’m sorry they tend to get away from me on occasion.” A small pinprick of crimson light flashed within the revenants blackened pupils, and the worms all slithered over to his hand, merging in with his leathery flesh. “Now than where do I need to sign?”

    Shamefully late submission, because I came up with this idea and thought it was cool.

    Cael Shadowstep, Human Rogue

    A knife comes flying out of the darkness of the rafters supporting the hall's roof and thuds into the wall just above the courier's head, quivering slightly. "You want someone to get into a town unseen and find answers? I'm your man" comes a voice from the darkness of the rafters.

    A dark shape drops and lands on its hands, deftly moving into a back handspring and then a back flip. He lands on his feet and then bows. "Cael Shadowstep at your service; master infiltrator, assassin, and thief extraordinaire." He performs a front handspring and somersaults forward, popping up on his feet in front of the courier. "I can guarantee that I will find out what has occurred, and that any who are there will be ignorant of my presence in its entirety"

    He gives a devilish grin and pulls the knife from above the courier's head, sheathing it. "And, if anyone does see me, I'm more than able to silence them forever."

    Well, this wasn't an easy decision. Enough fantastic apps that I could have filled two parties without ever making it down to even a mediocre submission. But there's only five slots, so without further ado, the auxilliaries:

    Tern Blackbriar, Crimson King's Dwarf Druid
    Erris Iratian, astrobstrd's Kalashtar Paladin
    Kaazin, IamUnaware's Revenant Rogue
    Nall, dots's Drow Assassin
    Amaryllis, SuperRuper's Kalashtar Cleric.
