    Hello guys~

    The title says it all, sorry if it seems like a silly or dumb question, but I have no clue what a Clan is in Starbound :(
    I'm still unknowledgeable of what there is to know of the game.. :p

    Thanks!
    (Oh and sorry if this is in the wrong section ^-^")

    I'm assuming you mean the ones here on the forum. It's basically a social group, who hang out and chat about their interests. Some clans are just general, while others may lean towards particular interests and fandoms.

    Yea, it's pretty much like a guild in an MMO

    Thank you! I thought that it was a sort of group or guild inside the game :p

    Some of the clans do have their own servers, and play together.

    Oh, of course, that make sense :rainbow:

    I'll try to join one of these clans, are there any populated and friendly ones you recommend? :)

    A clan is nothing more than a group of people who band together for the sole purpose of pwning newbs who aren't in the clan.

    Much like a bully, they'll back down if enough people get sick of their crap and manage to stand up to them.

    The rub? Getting the G.E.E.K.S * to organize and stand firm against them.

    *Generally Everyone Else. Kids Suck.

    I'm personally a member of Consortium and the Wyrd Order Of Furries. There are a few other large and highly-active clans, like the Space Pirates, Homestuck clan, Clan Infinity, Demon Syndicate, etc. which are worth checking out. It's really a matter of looking through them and what they're about, and deciding which ones seem interesting.

    That sounds very malicious :p
    Are all clans that way?

    I think I'll look into Consortium, Homestuck, and Space Pirates :love:
    I like the name of those :D

    I'm always joking.

    But, as always, "always" doesn't ever mean all the time.

    Ever tried to play a pub game against clan stompers?

    The entire BBTS is disappointed, but have to agree that we may have slipped away from being the most active clan for a long time now. Of course, I feel comfortable representing the entirety of my clan because... well.

    Ah. Well, I wasn't sure if the OP was a brony, you see. I only mentioned WOOF because I'm a member.

    Therein lies a dark path:

    Groupthink.

    As far as I'm concerned, Furries are the least of it.

    Ah. That makes sense. I understand completely.

    I'm new to your daily jokes, so I'll keep that in mind ;)

    "Daily" jokes? That's flattering.

    Most people call them "dumb", "immature" or "derailing".

    Or "A candidate for a great big red warning signal".

    You might better off just ignoring these posts.


    Bottom line: If you insist on joining a clan, the best clan to be in is the one that lets you into it. The worst clan is the the one that rejected you. That's brain science. And the basic plot of Animal House.

    I can tell you're passionate about your jokes so I wouldn't mind seeing them on a daily basis :love:

    and that's brilliant because the ones that accept you have kind and friendly members :)
    which reminds me.. how do I go about joining or requesting to join clans? ^^"
