This is different to ChatGPT Plus, where you use a nerfed version of GPT-4. The API offers access to the real version of GPT-4, and I am one of the lucky few with access.
Here is the prompt I gave the Assistant.
3.5e. Players Handbook 2 style affiliation. Dark Sun setting. Location: City of Raam. Affiliation: Raaman Veiled Alliance. Create the Raaman Veiled Alliance affiliation, using the appropriate rules and formats.
Affiliation Name: Raaman Veiled Alliance
Symbol: A veiled, hooded figure with the sun rising behind it
Background, Goals, and Dreams: The Raaman Veiled Alliance is a secretive organization of arcane spellcasters, psions, and other individuals who oppose the tyranny of the sorcerer-kings and seek to restore balance and freedom to the city of Raam. Founded in the shadows of the oppressive rule of Abalach-Re, the Raaman Veiled Alliance works to undermine the sorcerer-queen’s control and protect the citizens of Raam from her cruel and capricious whims.
Enemies and Allies: The primary enemies of the Raaman Veiled Alliance are the sorcerer-queen Abalach-Re and her templars, who constantly seek to root out and destroy the group. Lesser foes include various merchant houses and noble families who benefit from the sorcerer-queen’s rule and would see the Veiled Alliance destroyed to maintain the status quo.
The Raaman Veiled Alliance has few allies, as most people are too afraid to risk the wrath of the sorcerer-queen. However, they do maintain contacts with other Veiled Alliances in other city-states, as well as some nomadic tribes and outcast groups who share their desire for freedom and change.
Qualifications: To join the Raaman Veiled Alliance, one must be able to cast arcane spells or manifest psionic powers, as well as demonstrate a strong dedication to the cause of freedom and opposition to the sorcerer-kings. Most potential members are carefully vetted and observed before being approached, as the Veiled Alliance cannot afford to risk infiltration by the sorcerer-queen’s agents.
Initiation Process: New members of the Raaman Veiled Alliance are brought before a gathering of senior members, who question the initiate about their intentions, capabilities, and dedication to the cause. The initiate is then required to swear a binding magical oath of loyalty and secrecy, after which they are welcomed into the organization and given access to its resources and contacts.

Sample Affiliation Encounter: While seeking information in a crowded marketplace, the characters are approached by a mysterious figure who claims to be a member of the Raaman Veiled Alliance. The figure offers to help the characters with their current objectives, but only if they first prove their loyalty and dedication by completing a dangerous mission to sabotage one of the sorcerer-queen’s operations.
The dangerous mission involves infiltrating one of Abalach-Re’s slave labor camps, where the sorcerer-queen’s templars force prisoners to mine precious stones and metals for her personal use. The Raaman Veiled Alliance member explains that the organization has learned of a shipment of these valuable resources that is set to be transported from the camp to the sorcerer-queen’s palace in the coming days. The characters are tasked with intercepting the shipment and freeing the slaves who are being sent along with it as a “gift” to the sorcerer-queen.
To accomplish this mission, the characters must first gather information on the location of the slave labor camp and the planned route of the shipment. They may need to use their skills in Bluff, Diplomacy, and Gather Information to gain the trust of individuals who have knowledge of the camp’s operations or the sorcerer-queen’s plans.
Once they have the necessary information, the characters must make their way to the camp and find a way to infiltrate it, either by stealth or by posing as new arrivals. Inside the camp, they will face numerous challenges, including hostile guards, dangerous working conditions, and the ever-present threat of discovery by the sorcerer-queen’s agents.
As they make their way through the camp, the characters may have opportunities to inspire and rally the slaves to join their cause, as well as gain valuable allies among the other prisoners. They may also uncover further evidence of the sorcerer-queen’s cruelty and corruption, which can be used against her in the future.
When the time comes for the shipment to be transported, the characters must find a way to intercept it and overpower the guards, all without alerting the camp’s leadership or causing undue harm to the slaves. Once the shipment has been secured and the slaves freed, the characters must then make their escape and return to the Raaman Veiled Alliance with their spoils.
Upon successful completion of the mission, the characters will not only have proven their loyalty and dedication to the Raaman Veiled Alliance, but also have struck a significant blow against the sorcerer-queen and her oppressive rule. As a result, they will be welcomed into the organization as full members and gain access to the resources and support that come with their new affiliation.
However, their actions will not go unnoticed by Abalach-Re and her templars, who will surely seek to exact revenge upon those who dared to defy them. The characters must be vigilant and prepared for retaliation, as they continue to work with the Raaman Veiled Alliance and fight for the cause of freedom in the city of Raam.
This was a one-shot prompt, deliberately designed to be as vague as possible to test it’s capabilities. I haven’t asked it to refine it’s output at all. If I did so, it could have done even better.
