- did you have ideas regarding the different factions posted somewhere? I see you have TS, PT, NGE, AK, but I do not remember what they stand for, and I apologize if you have already posted and told me before. I am going to have a little bit of back story/lore in this game, so was looking for some information on the various factions you have proposed.
Terra Nova is also going to be similar to Civ in that you will be choosing your faction before the game starts, and each is going to have a specific color and leader (instead of using random tokens), along with a back story.
I currently have United Earth, LIS, Corporate Industries, and Galactic Freight as factions. You then implied several above with your HQ models, so I was wondering if you had info on those.
Altogether, I want 16 factions in the game(!) to accommodate the 16 player map size, without having the same faction in the game twice. Each faction will have at least 1 unique unit or structure, plus some extra modifiers.
For story, I am really going somewhat off of your Fan Lore
post, before the Human Civil War era, maybe similar in time to the Deimos events. Humanity finds this nice fertile planet Terra Nova, and everyone is making a mad rush to colonize. I think a lot of the factions will be corporations, really LIS isn't even totally a thing yet. But I am sort of relating it to today, where we now have all of the private entities racing to get into space. Here will be something similar.
