Faction Guide

Joining a Faction

Joining a faction at creation is the easiest way for your character to “gain membership” into a faction. You’re only required to contact the people responsible for approving new members for permission before sticking the faction into your character’s profile at creation.

Once your character has already been approved, you’d have to gain entry into the faction through RP if you didn’t do so at creation, and though this could be done quickly with the right planning, it’s more time-consuming than the first method.

Either way, your entry into a faction rests with the creators of the factions (or those they grant that power to)

Check here to see if any factions are currently accepting members.

Creating a Faction

Due to the nature of factions, they are all member-created. This means that, before you create your character, you need to decide if you're going to create a new faction or fill an available slot in an existing one. Keep in mind that newly-created factions consist of 5 Player Characters maximum. It's fine to create NPCs to be part of your chosen faction (and they don’t count toward your maximum), but be reasonable with your uses of them. Once your faction has been created, you can add more slots as you see fit.

If you're creating a new faction, apply for it in the Registry before creating your character, as the faction you're going to be a part of is listed on your character's basic profile.  Keep in mind that even though the maximum at creation is 5, you're not required to have that many and can refuse to accept members beyond your chosen few.

You can decorate your listing however you like and add whatever information you want, but you must, at minimum, have the following information, split between two posts:

Your first post should serve as the “info at a glance” post. This is where the basics of your faction are laid out for people to see. The information in this post should not be changed by the member - if anything here needs to be changed, ask for a mod to do it for you - no edits should be dated after your faction has been approved and moved to the appropriate board.

Faction Name: This is what others will know the faction by. It can be whatever you like (within reason - try to give it a proper name, please). Whether there’s symbolism in the name or not is up to you, it just needs to have some sort of name that other identify it by. Even if the members of the faction never formally gave it a name, you can use this to explain a “nickname” given to it by others.

(SuggestionFocus: Is your faction a purely militaristic one? Diplomatic? (Etc.)

Ideology/Beliefs: Essentially, you need to explain the general beliefs of your faction’s leaders. For example, if your faction’s leaders believe that curry is an abomination or if you believe that your clan is superior and everyone else should serve under it, this is where you’d say so. This can be as in-depth as you want it to be, but at a minimum you should summarize your faction’s ideology in bullet points. Keep in mind that this is something that can be changed over time as necessary.

Goals: What are your faction’s goals? These can be short-term, long-term, small-scale, large-scale, whatever you deem appropriate. These can also change over time, but you need to have some sort of plan here.

Hierarchy: If you have some sort of particular hierarchy and different roles within your faction, list them. Having one isn’t mandatory, but if you do have one, you need to include this information. This hierarchy explanation does not include names or links of any kind, though - that information is included in the second post.

This is the post that will include information that can/will change more frequently.

Recruitment Status: How you word it is up to you, but essentially, you need to specify whether you’re openly recruiting (people can freely ask to join), only recruiting through RP, invite-only, etc. It doesn’t matter what it is, it just needs to be clearly/easily visible. This will be listed in your faction’s thread title upon approval.

(Suggestion)Relationship with other factions: If, as a faction, you have enemies, allies, etc, they should be listed here.

Member List: Self-explanatory. You can either list any faction NPCs here or on a separate list, but this must be shown with links to each member’s profile. Members should be listed by character name, not player username.

(Suggestion)Missions: If you have missions for your members to undertake, you can list them here - but be sure to specify whether the mission details have been pre-approved or not, as members will have to get them approved themselves if you haven’t done so already.

(Suggestion)Bounties: If your faction has placed a bounty on another character, you can list it here as well.

(Suggestion)Open/Planned RP: List any open RP/planned RP your members might be interested in.

Requesting Changes

If you need to request changes to your faction’s listing, simply create a new thread in the faction creation area - when completed, the thread will be moved to the archives to prevent clutter.
