ISO:

A clan for gun-running, daylight robbery, and bloody mayhem.  Primarily a mining outfit in the farthest reaches of the galaxy that also dabbles in piracy against the largest banks and businesses.  Socialist/Communist/Marxist roleplay not required, but certainly encouraged.

You can count the Star League Defense Force (SLDF) as a group that will act as a galactic police arm. We are naturally a member in any civilian theaters (guilds for building and commerce) and will look to provide trade lane patrols/escorts of neutral craft, station security (both planning and policing) and ground based military protection for cities and mining ventures of openly public areas.

Therefore we will not be involved in any galactic wars but will be only working against piracy/theft/general misconduct and promoting the non-use of WMD's.

I myself will be role-playing with a selection of units from the BattleTech universe and lots of NPC's when they come available.

A better description will follow...

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 ;)

I'd love to group by function, but categorizing them all is hard, currently almost every single organization would end up with it's own category.

More descriptions have been added, as have links.

If people suggest categories and suggest what their organizations come under I'd be amenable to modifying it to that.
My feelings for categorys:

-Mercenary
-Pirates/Raiders
-Police force
-Generic corporation
-Blockade Runners/smugglers
-Mining
-Navy
-Federation

FISH for example currently sites in about 4 of those categories though.

If owners of current organizations feel that their's is particularly suited to one role/category I'll organize by their preference.

Actually F.I.S.H. is strictly an industrial group. our members are mostly in charge of their own companies. The military force serves strictly as a kind of group insurance in case one of us gets into trouble.

and individual militaries for expansion and non-wartime defense. you know, like low-end defense and expansion, and to hold the line for the cavalry.
Meh.

yeah F.I.S.H. is basically a trade union, just with a space station that will hopefully become a main centre of trade.

Throw up a blip for the Ashtar Coalition, once I get a proper blurb set up we'll be the third national faction comprised of those who were dissidents from the old Ural Empire and have no taste for the Divine Navy's rabid human-supremacist dogma.
SCIENCE!
...IN SPAAAAAAAACE!

Tell me what to put and I'll add it.

Will make a subheading of factions on snowdragon's server perhaps.

Hmm.  ISO won't pass up a mercenary opportunity, nor smuggling or piracy.  Our main focus might be mining, but those are pretty important too.  I think we'd best be described as a "Outlaw" group.  I think that's the best phrase for smugglers and pirates in your faction types.  I would suggest, perhaps, Outlaws, Military, Trade, Mining, Government, and Mixed as possibilities.  If you'd like to stick with the originals, jot ISO down as Pirates.

Rainman/Ashtar Coalition, I like the sound of that.  I'll keep in touch for friendly trade relations.

Suggested categories suggested!

Choose one or suggest a new one!

Yeah.
also, i'd ask you to put up the Sythan empire, but nescron hasn't put anything up yet, so i won't bother. i'll see what i can do, and if i can get him to put it up he'll probably write it up here.
Meh.
