So, according to a post, this server is supposed to be a faction server where everyone has an underlying loyalty to their race. Now, I never really got this rule but I' sure there was a good reason for it. However, I always wanted a tolerant, multiracial settlement, and so do a few people I play with on the server. So I was wondering if it would be possible to start a new faction in a new settlement where any race is welcome. This wont be a band of thugs or anything, and griefing, killing, and pillaging is not my intent with this.
Just curious what people think about this.
Hopefully people still want to play on this server.
The short answer is unfortunately "no". The longer answer is that the server has been designed to create a world in which there are differing communities, with personal interests that differ from one another. This is in effort to create interesting RP; this is however not just a thematic choice. In the past we have had a multi-racial settlement and it has ALWAYS without fail ended in disaster. Put simply it stagnates play and within said community cliques form that become exclusionary. Lastly, you cannot guarantee the behaviour of other players and while I would like to put trust in players to do the right thing, a long track record, spanning multiple versions of the server proves that players will make snap decisions regardless.
At any rate, I hope you continue to play on the server. I have been away on business for the past month or so and I am looking to get the server back on track.
