Royal Faction

Right now in Albion, the player can encounter the Royal Faction, which is actually a series of sub-factions, the Royal Military, the Royal Wagoners, and the Royal Artisans.

The Keepers

There’re the old inhabitants, an ancient faction known as the Keepers. They consist of all kinds of old races who have always been there. But there’s also more sinister players here. They’ll see the Cult of Morgana. They want to revive an ancient enchantress and conquer the world for themselves.

Undead

You can encounter the Undead, the survivors of the old war, a faction that is comprised of a lot of dead knights who still try to fight a war that they lost thousands of years ago. So as part of the mission system, you finally get the chance to interact with all these factions in Albion.

Missions

Missions work a little bit like quests in other games, in the sense that there’s a faction representative who will approach you with a task, which could be like transporting goods, crafting certain things, or effect combat missions, eliminating certain enemies. But then on the other hand, missions in Albion are not like quests. Everything will be tied in with the open world idea.

Balancing the In-Game Economy with Mission

One important thing to understand is that factions have a limited amount of silver they can spend on missions. And that means you’re competing for the missions with all the other players in the world. If all the players work for the same faction, that faction will in fact run out of money and you have to work for a different faction if you still want to do missions. So missions are not an unlimited source of silver. That is very, very important to keep the game economy intact.

Mission Reward

As you do more jobs for a faction, you gain more standing with them. Basically they start to like you more because you work for them. You may also lose this standing again if you do work for other factions that doesn’t further the original faction’s goals. The same idea is even applied to a RPG like FFXV quest system. So as you gain more standing with a faction, they will offer you more important jobs and more challenging jobs. When you complete a mission, you’ll usually get paid in silver. But on top of that, you also get a faction-specific reward. These are usually tokens from the faction. These tokens you can exchange with the faction for very specific gear.

Basically every faction has their own very specific reward that you can unlock by becoming aligned with them and working for them. The Keepers are usually very aggressive, so you can expect the Keeper gear to support a very, very aggressive play style. While the gear you get from the Undead is of course very dark and sinister.
