Organizations, Factions, and Beliefs
Organizations are larger scale factions that span the various Cities or unify people as a whole. Working within their city or outside in the territories of Esterin. They pay salary to their members in return for their work, whether it’s engineering a brighter future as part of the Engineering Corps, working with the Treasury to keep the economy stable, or protecting a city’s citizens by being part of the Peacekeepers or, in Lyeria’s case, the Blood Knights.
Factions are player created content to add a sense of fullness to the world. The activity of a faction is entirely dependent on the faction leader and purpose of the faction. Some staff members have factions, while others are ran by players who are at least Exalted.
Beliefs are religious affiliations usually connected to one of the gods. Player characters can freely join the ranks of any of these belief systems unless stated otherwise.
Being Part of an Organization, Faction, or Belief
There are two ways that a player can become a part of an organization, faction, or belief. One by opting to be a member during character creation, or two by joining through RP in recruitment or sending a message to the Organization’s leader.
Joining at Creation
Every character starts at Rank 0/Rep 0 for an Organization, Faction, or Belief.
Joining in RP
Joining through RP will be a process in one form or another, and it is generally up to the Organization leader as for how to go about recruitment. It could be a simple interview, they could send the character on a quest, and depending on how it goes they will assign a rank.
