The Faction System - Felucca Facet
When Minax took over Lord British's realm, she started a rift, both among her followers, and among the followers of Lord British. Both sides split into two different groups, with different ideals, and war ensued among all 4 sides.

The rebellion began in Moonglow, where the council of Mages decided that Lord British was no longer fit to rule Britannia. He'd not only failed to protect his lands from the invading hordes, but many of his own people had abandoned him and fled to the side of darkness, taking post with one of the factions of evil.

British's loyal followers tried to crush the rumors quickly that Moonglow was planning on seceding from the throne's grasp, but this only furthered their cause, making those who died or were jailed martyrs for the cause of the mages. The Council of Mages now believes that what Britannia needs is a new leader: one who can not only lead Britannia against Minax, but who can also keep peace once it's restored. To this end, they have begun preparations to do something drastic.

Though they've never had to do this themselves, they are the keepers of the arcane knowledge, and they have prepared many notes and items which they will need in their quest. They oppose Minax, and Lord British, and as such, are not safe from danger in either company.

Meanwhile, Minax has something of a rebellion herself occurring. Strangely enough, from within her own rank and file, there are those who are calling for the Shadow Lords to be released from the Abyss to take their rightful place as the rulers of the dark land. While her minions are grateful to Minax for allowing them the opportunity to strike terror at Lord British, they feel she is only useful as a magical tool, and is not powerful enough to lead them against Lord British for an extended period of time. To this end they have begun preparations to do something drastic of their own; call for the Shadow Lords.

Her minions are now split amongst those who would follow her, and those who wish to see her dethroned. Infighting is the only thing thus far that is keeping Minax from working out a way to breach the virtue spell that protects Lord British and his followers.

The result was four different factions:
Minax
True Britannians
Shadow Lords
Council of Mages
All factions are aggressive towards each other, meaning each faction member can be attacked freely by members of another faction.

Strongholds of Factions

Each faction will have its own stronghold, a place where their faction stone resides and where the members of that faction are to take a sigil if they obtain one. The stronghold is the base of operations for each faction. At this time, the faction strongholds are located at the following locations:

Minax Faction - The stone fortress is located in the mountains west of Trinsic.

Council of Mages Faction - The Magincia Parliament Building in the southeast corner of Magincia.

Shadowlord Faction - Located in the unused crypts in the Yew forest, a fair distance in a direct line northeast from the east Yew Healer's Shop named "Deep Forest Healing." This is not the Yew Graveyard, but instead the haunted crypts far to the northeast of the city within the woods.

True Britannians Faction - Located within Castle Britannia's throne room, in the town of Britain.
