The guild is now an allegiance!


Recommended Posts

Hey all. In the last update on Kickstarter, they showed that the Guild is no longer a syndicate, but now a full allegiance.

It won't be available at launch, but it is really exciting! 

What are your thoughts about that?

Personally, I'm super excited... mostly because it means that the Court of Two is also going to be a full allegiance!

Although the Archer with the explosive arrow looks really cool!

Super excited, and also curious how they're going to go about that.  Will there be dual faction Guild and Abyssinia/Empire Commanders, or when Guild gets Commanders can anyone from Earth just hire one of them?  Very excited at the potential :D

Yes !! Cult Of Burning Man was already fascinating with great looking models...Court Of Two has just as much potential for weirdness plus an allegiance possibly on both sides of the Breach

The biggest thing I see coming of this - it seemed Wyrd didn't want any direct transitions of factions. They had Neverborn, but as Gibbering Hordes, and who are also now the army of the Tyrant Meridian. This let the game stand on its own, rather than use Malifauxs' popularity to drive its own. Now? That's gone. We have a faction making a direct transition. What could this mean?

Two words. Whiskey Titan.

I don't think they where ever opposed to direct faction transition. If it made sence.

Malifaux is rightfully owned by Neverborn, however when the path from Earthside to Malifaux opened again all other factions eventually came through and settled or found their places in Malifaux. The same occurance didn't exactly happen the same way the other way around. So while there is clear influence of Neverborn on Earthside now, they shaped themselves in different factions (logically because Neverborn is a collection name of several races that don't all co-operate to begin with). 
So not only is Gibbering Hordes a 'Neverborn product' the same can be said for the Everburning man and thus the Cult of the Everburning man :D . Factions such as The Guild and Ten Thunders are actually much larger on Earthside as they ever where on Malifaux. In that same vein it can almost be concluded that the Arcanists are a movement supported in secrecy by The King's Empire.

Long story short, several of the Malifaux factions are actually just splintergroups of the larger nations/factions that are found on Earthside. So there is a direct transition sometimes.  
From the title of the games name you can allready conclude that it's not completely on it's own in terms of it's universe. As 'The Other Side' refers to the other side from Malifaux' perspective. Otherwise it could have been called Earthside instead :) The system doesn't require the same overlap but the narrative can have that and has that. See it like a game revolving around The Hobbit and a game revolving around Lord of the Rings. They do share the same universe but the games don't have to have the same design, development or system.

Cheers,
