Even though they do take shots at each other, and despite their individualistic nature, the fact that the League even exists indicates that they've got baller status diplomats.

I don't think it's diplomats keeping the Arashi alive I think it's their fierce dedication to keeping everyone else out. They squabble with eachother but if an outside force comes in they gang up on that outside force and make it pay. Then they go back to squabbling with eachother.

Exactly, considering that they are a scavenging nation squabbles could potentially arise from disputes over old tech? (I'm going to blatantly rip off the Mortal Engines series and call it that :D) Like if one town discovered a good haul of old weapons but it was technically in the neighbouring towns territory? Perhaps there'd be some kind of system for dealing with this kind of thing, a scavengers guild or such? But then their greater concern is other nations/raiders intruding and stealing old-tech, some places might be restricted due to dangerous things within but the bold pirates think they're hiding sky whales and go for a gander?

Personally I'm siding with the Arashi, I just like the idea of cobbling together some dodgy weapon out of scrap and accidentally blowing my own ship up with it :)

I'll probaby be joining the Baronies, mainly cause I like the geographical position they are in, still waiting on their lore. So I will keep my vote till then.

Definitely the Chaladonian Order! They remind me of England in the time that Britannia ruled the waves. Here's hoping their armada will be equally impressive.

Also, they most likely designed the Squid! Any nation ingenious enough to design a ship like that has got my support.

Having actual flora is a nice plus too.

Yep, the Squid was designed in Chaladon by Sir Isaac Phillips.

Dear god, I can't believe they made that story become canon XD

I prefer to be a freebooter, so none of them.

I'm waiting for more info on the Anglean republic since it's got my attention, but if I don't like it, I have absolutely no idea what to pick. All factions look interesting. Squid is my favorite ship so maybe Chaladon, but yeah, no idea.

The Mercantile Guild. The bloodied coin fetches the biggest quantities of anything you pay for, and I only work when there's good profit and an easy way out.
Maybe the Arashi. They're like the Anti Traction League in Mortal Engines. They are probably based off of them.

It's funny, I've always planned joining Anglea ever since it was announced that the Empire wouldn't be WW-germany/victorian Britain I'd hoped for. But I also always thought it'd be one of the least populated factions. Seems like we're winning  :P
