Factions are the seperate nations that divide up 4story. 1 faction is Defugel, The military district. The opposite is Craxion The something district. Another is Iveria the peaceful district. Iveria is the faction everyone starts in and it's neutral. As it only trains new players so they could join either Defugel or Craxion.
Defugel is the military district. Defugel's sign is a red backround and a Lion's head in the middle.
Craxion is like the nature district or something... Craxion's sign is a blue backround and something that looks like Yin-yang in the middle
