So basically Chaladon is India under British rule and it's science and they look cool and probably drink tea. Need I say Issac Phillips, anybody?

I'm thinking I'd support the Order, I thought they were religious kooks at first, I guess not

^ah finally some more info


It's a bit different from our first guesses about a year ago, when the only thing we knew was that Jess told us the Republic might be vikings
Quote from: Sgt. Spoon
Empire = ww2 germany/1800 Great Brittain. Cool uniforms. Also with a single leader.
Republic = More democratic faction. But kinda big as the Empire.
Baronies = Rich wealthy. A couple of rich barons who rule instead of a political leader.
League = Sounds like pirates
Order = An order with strong rules and such. Maybe religion? Like "The templar order".
Guild = Merchants
and Racercowans design ideas about it
Quote from: Racercowan
Going by Sgt_Spoon's guess, this might be what they look like:
Empire = Ships with sharp features, rather monotone dull faded colors. Imposing, somewhat like modern structure (especially WWII era). Maybe lots of machinery.
Republic = Still sharp features, but more action-hero sharp than evil sharp (bold might be a better term). Colors more based on contrast, and machinery is hidden away within the innards (aesthetically, at least. No problem with the balloon and hull repair points being above deck)
 Baronies = Smooth, well decorated. Useless/showy features (like gold railings, maybe). Ship design is less sharp and more sweeping. White/Gold/Royal Purple color theme. Also, windows. Lots of them, wherever it's not a BIG liability.
League = More boat-ish, and/or cannibalised/reused version of other faction's ships.
Order (1) = Very sterile ships. White. Functional. (based off strict part)
Order (2) = Old-ish ships. Somewhat peculiar design features, and built to last a thousand years. (based off religious part. Because what good is a fictional religion that doesn't love old stuff?)
Guild = Ships are more pieced together, home-made rather than manufactured. Also more bulky (freight) than ther factions.
Course, I couldn't illustrate any of these since I have horrible drawing, but these are aesthetic Ideas for way off when/if faction-specific designs are used. Assuming Sgt_Spoon is somewhere in the vicinity of the faction's themes.

..I guess we had the league right at least

We hold it in our stead, it may not be a faction, but it will be an underlying order that transcends the borders!

The poll results are shaped like the letter E. That obviously means that the Empire is winning.

I like this idea of a confuscian empire, it harkens back to the old Imperial Chinese meritocracy.

The republic being Vikings with slaves likely means thralls, people captured in raids along with supplies.  I also like the fact that their symbol is the albatross.  I can see this being diametrically opposed to the league who seem more for rugged individualism.  Good ole crane of the wastes, the vulture.

Pretty happy that my gut told me to choose the league, Definately sticking with that decision.

Let's make it more democratic! We could call it "The Democratic Republic of..."

Oh, wait...

Just to make sure people understand this is for them, call it the "People's peaceful democratic republic of the people" in case it wasn't clear enough.

Junker would likely be Yesha or merc as junker is the name of an Asian hull design.
