Hermann: It depends what you mean by being "part of a faction." When you start the game, you choose which nation to play for: Quantar, Solrain or Octavius. Jumpgate does not have hard and fast rules about allegiances however. That is to say, the factions can interact with each other: trade, talk, fight, etc. We have made a deliberate choice to put more of this into the player's hands as opposed to forcing a war or peace situation onto them .While it is important that players make choices and that those choices have consequences we want to be careful not to make people feel like they might make the "wrong" choice.
