Faction List
« on: April 21, 2012, 04:24:26 pm »
Faction List under new management!

At kaptnkrunch's request Alaric is assuming update and organizational duties of this thread. Any other moderators are welcome to assist, and kaptnkrunch of course may still contribute.

That said, Alaric has overhauled the presentation of the list to organize by faction classification. Please feel free to suggest improvements to the design if you think it will result in an easier reference to find factions. The old layout is still preserved at the bottom of the page, and can be recalled if necessary.



If you wish to have your faction listed post a request in this thread. To assist others in finding the correct information please provide a link to your faction's topic, a short description (see some of the spoilers below), and whichever category you think it fits best. If you are unsure of which category your faction fits we can decide based on your explanation, and can create additional categories if necessary.

Faction List by Category

Recruitment
Unless specified otherwise in the description, recruiting is open for every listed faction. Check the individual faction's thread for contact details and member lists. Faction leaders/representatives, PM Alaric or post here to update your recruitment policies. (Other mods who would like to help maintain this thread may add their name)

Hi Guys,

Thought it'd be worthwhile to keep an up to date list of clans and leaders. Might try and do an alliance matrix at some point. I've put nominal call signs after groups, please let me know if you want to change it. Also, could an Admin sticky this if they think it's worthwhile.

HDN is a xenophobic fanatic humanist movement dedicated to the supremacy of humanity in the galaxy. HDN will support any humans provided they do not deal with the Alien, the Heretic or Mutant. HDN acts with supreme, divine, and extreme prejudice to purge all those who oppose it. (If you're into 40k, or Battlefleet Gothic this is an imperium spin-off with a few twists).

The HDN is foremost a Navy rocking massive firepower to protect the interests of the empire of Man. Join if you love blowing stuff up on a regular basis.

We have looked into the void, and we have seen that the void looks back, on each and every one of us. We are the Revenant and we will be the ones to save the human race and all other denizens of the galaxy. If you doubt our goals then ask yourself, have you ever successfully contacted a revenant ship before? have we ever attacked anyone, have we ever retaliated? No. Then you may not doubt our intentions. Before I go on I must tell you something of our history.

The Xavier industries security force is a private military force dedicated to the protection and expansion of XI assets. mostly duties of the XISF include patrolling FISH space, training other FISH militaries ( both in basic training and training exercises) and assisting police forces where possible. the XISF is well armed and well trained, equivalent to special forces of the old Sol system like the SAS and navy SEALs, except for the fact that they are more numerous. XISF members are well payed, beyond that of normal militaries, and on par with, or even exceeding mercenary groups. the XISF has the firepower and training to handle any situation and opponent.

The SLDF is the military force of the Star League, which is this factions governing body. The Star League is made up of an undisclosed number of city states each with their own distinct cultures and origins resembling the full fledged factions from which they came in the canon BattleTech/Mechwarrior Universe. I will be appointing new members to head these city states and command armies along canon lines.

The CAF will be a military force, NOT a police force. Any aggressive action made by the CAF will be made in a militaristic fashion. This is not to say that the CAF will allow unauthorized action to go uninterrupted in it's presence, or that the CAF will "take no prisoners". This simply means that the CAF will exist to defend itself and it's civilian populace. If unauthorized actions (such as piracy) is witnessed by the CAF, they will respond in a swift and direct fashion. Anyone who surrenders to the CAF and is not an enemy combatant, will be taken to the nearest proper authorities. If any ship is in distress and a rescue mission is requested or a distress beacon is discovered by a BSG, it will(if not in a combat situation) divert priority to the ship in distress.

GCAM is an arms dealer that distributes many kinds of ships, weapons, armor, etc. to many different kinds of militaries and other combat oriented organizations. The corporation is also not exactly a force to be trifled with, as we have our own military that is substantially powerful, and with technologies not on the market, even off of the black market. These technologies are far more advanced and dangerous than our distributed products.

Instead of simply listing all the factions (the forum itself can do that just fine), why don't you organize them by role? At the moment your post just looks like the first page of the board; however if you group the factions together by their function it would make such a list much more useful for players looking to join a certain type of faction. Keep any descriptions brief to give just a general feeling of what each faction is all about and then link to its respective thread for contact details, memberlists, extended storylines, etc. Then we can talk sticky ;)
