As the rest of the world is playing Pokemon Go and choosing their faction, when the idea for factions in Starbound came to me. This could be a very good idea to include when Starbound gets released. Here are some things that could be included in the factions. 1: Quests and side-quests 2: Settlements (like Fallout 4) 3: Relationships 4: Raiding other faction's bases and settlements Forgot to mention, one NPC quote says you should join the USCM which could be a joinable faction. Also, if this was ever implemented, I would recommend only having 3 factions hence 2 factions is too little and 4 is too much to choose. Im not the best at writing posts or explaining my points, so at least give me suggestions and correct what I rambled about.
