Several Assassin Handbooks out there (eg. this one) seem to reference a certain feat.

Favored in Guild – Jazred Chalssin (DMG2+web): +4 DC [of death attack]. Tied pretty tightly with anti-Lolth rebel fluff.

I can't seem to find the given web enhancement. Even after decoding the nonfunctional link given in the handbook, it only leads here.

Does anybody know of the enhancement? Is there anybody who has the link or correct text?

Are you sure that's the right book? The web enhancement archive doesn't list a DMG2 one. The book itself has the feat, but there's nothing about adding to Death Attack DCs. – Tridus Nov 2 '13 at 21:48
I am not, that is one of my problems. I am simply working with the info I have, so I cannot be sure of anything. – kravaros Nov 2 '13 at 22:48
Fair point. :) I can confirm that Favored in Guild is a feat in DMG2, but doesn't have that ability. I can't find a web supplement for DMG2 at all. – Tridus Nov 2 '13 at 23:00

Page 6 of the Dragons of Faerûn Web Enhancement “City of Wyrmshadows” has the “Jaezred Chaulssin” criminal organization. They are a patriarchal group of shadow-draconic drow looking to undermine or overthrow Lolth’s influence on drow society so that the (mostly male-dominated) merchant houses may take control. Assassin is probably among the most common classes for them, and indeed, the Favored in Guild benefit directly improves the assassin’s death attack feature.

The rules for Favored in Guild are found in Dungeon Master’s Guide II.

Thanks! Seems that a misspell was the major problem, after all. – kravaros Nov 3 '13 at 7:08
@kravaros For reference, it was a Google search for “D&D web enhancement assassin” that found it (along with a Cityscape web enhancement that was my first guess, the avenger April Fools’ entry, and a Mind’s Eye article). – KRyan Nov 3 '13 at 13:00
And so we see that less is more, since highly focused searches on jazred chalssin didnt show anything. – kravaros Nov 3 '13 at 13:12
Tbh, I didn't even consider the possibility of it being a misspell, I thought it was lost during the archivation of 3.5 stuff or something. – kravaros Nov 3 '13 at 13:15
