Factions

From CrossCode Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Factions are a part of CrossWorlds lore. The factions are groups of humans on Shadoon dedicated to the advancement of humanity. Each of the four factions follows a different core philosophy, which complement each other in their services to humanity. Each faction is represented by a different subdivision in each town, although many of these are not implemented yet. From a meta perspective, the factions serve to provide quests to the players of CrossWorlds. All eight of the currently-implemented subdivisions have two main quests, with the second one only being unlocked after completing the first and continuing further through the game. Two of the subdivisions also have additional challenge quests on top of that.

Factions
Factions are groups of humans who work together to secure the survival and further advancement of humanity on Shadoon.

Most humans are part of one of 4 large factions with different fields of duties and core philosophies, each divided into regional subdivisions:

  • Venture Alliance (VA)
  • Human Preservation Department (HPD)
  • Association of Human Advancement (AHA)
  • Amity of Balance (AoB)

While the factions are filled with highly resourceful experts of their field, they often need the support of the Seekers because of their special connection to the Track of the Ancients.
