A Faction is a group of individuals in the Third Realm who form a bond with each other to show that they believe in something. Factions vary in power and number. However, unlike countries or clans in the First Realm, Factions have no true way of edging each other out and usually settle with making faces at each other and giving each other a hard time if they meet in a First Realm. Forming a Faction is generally not an impressive feat, given the sheer number of them. A Faction has not truly gained prestige unless it attracts the attention of a Gargoyle, who are extremely selective in their favors.
