* Denotes Charter members of the Club: January 14, Year of the Worm (D.R. 1356).
The Breakfast Club is a profit earning adventuring organization incorporated under the laws of the Kingdom of Cormyr and its king, Azoun IV. The Club is also approved by the Holy temple of Tyr and the Royal Mageguild of Suzail. The Club was first organized by the Temple of Tyr, Threshold branch, on January 14, Year of the Worm (Dale Reckoning 1356. The Club received an official license to operate in the city of Arabel on February 24, of the same year. Formerly based in Suzail, the Club is now headquartered in Tilverton, where its offices are located.
The club is well balanced in the areas of Magic, Religion, Fighting, and Thieving. There are even two bards in the Club, thus making it one of the most diversified groups in Cormyr. While the Club is currently in the service of the kingdom of Cormyr, the Club can still satisfy the majority of outside requests it receives. The Club believes that no job is too large or too small, for they have successfully carried out jobs ranging from killing a renegade mage to exploring a magical island, to raiding a Zhentil stronghold and escaping alive. If you feel that you need a high quality, low profile job done for a reasonable price please feel free to contact a member of the Breakfast Club at the Silver Tankard Tavern in Tilverton.
