One thing I loved about FoM was the vast amount of traditional political parties and player made parties. I personally still haven't decided yet. I've been developing a character story for the past week and a half now so I'm undecided on what my political stature will be in-game.

What will your political stand point be in the MRverse and why?

That was cool for about 3 weeks then he realized he had no clue how to run a faction. I sure did rope me into it until him and his gang of delinquents VONC'd me for R7

They had HC for about 2 weeks I think.

The proposed government system for MR doesn’t quite work the same way as the government system did in FoM.

It does (like all democratic systems) lend itself to the formation of political parties however.

Lore wise there’s probably two (a generally conservative party and a generally ‘progressive’ party (expect caricatures of both)) but the really interesting parties will be the ones players come up with.

More than 2 parties would exist given the spectrum of the various elements of the government :D

I'd rather it be that way but who knows what the players will choose outside of Union factions.

In game my political philosophy will be anarchism. I know it kinda contradicts the ideas of the faction I'm in but tbh lately I've been seriously leaning towards being a mercenary.

Fuck Earth.
Glory to the colonies.
Seize the means of production!


Honestly I just want my own colony and would support anything to get my way.

My political alignment is generally Anti-Terran Union but not as far as taking up arms against the TU.
