Okay guys, we will need to pick a side for CW in December. This is the official vote. You may pick as many teams as you like but try to keep it to a min.

  •  I will be assigning us to the faction with the most votes. 
  • Vote ends December 1st.
  • I will assign us to the shortest contract allowed at first.
  • This vote is for BEER unit only.
  • Feel free to post your vote and reasoning below in the comments section.
  • We WILL be a Merc group when that is available.
  • If there is not clear majority. A new vote will be cast with only the 2-3 majority options.


INNER SPHERE (NO CLAN MECHS ALLOWED IN FACTION BATTLES)

House Kurita: The first full-scale interstellar military operation was launched in 2303, and it eventually led to the formation of the Draconis Combine in 2319. Unlike other Inner Sphere nations, which were formed through the union of already-established alliances of planets, the Draconis Combine owed its birth to one world and the indomitable will of one man: Shiro Kurita. Though Shiro used political wrangling when it suited him, he constructed the Combine mainly by the sword. Raised in strict adherence to the ancient Japanese code of bushido (the way of the warrior), Shiro spread this philosophy as he expanded his empire.

House Liao: The Capellan Confederation is a survivor, thanks to its greatest asset—its people. A Capellan citizen sees it as his or her duty to serve the nation first and himself second; individual rights are therefore subordinate to the needs of the state. Regarded as repressive by most other Successor States and smaller political entities, this simple trait has allowed the Capellan nation to survive and prosper even after the Federated Commonwealth broke its back in the Fourth Succession War. As always, adversity merely strengthens the Capellan Confederation. Despite what some realms regard as "repressive," individuals are encouraged to better themselves and may marry into a higher caste or qualify for one on their own merits.

House Marik: Technically a federation rather than a true nation, the Free Worlds League has been plagued by divisive conflicts throughout its history. Until recently, this balkanization greatly limited the League's impact on external events. The current Captain-General, Thomas Marik, a war leader with dictatorial powers appointed "for the duration of the crisis," has done much to centralize power and bring out the nation's true strength. Citizens of the League value their right to express themselves freely—more so than almost any other realm—leading to a broad acceptance of differing cultures and values along with an appreciation for the arts and education.

House Steiner: The Lyran Commonwealth has never been regarded as a military power, but it remains a political and economic force to be reckoned with. Though governed by a feudal system like most of the other Successor States, the Commonwealth maintains loose control over member worlds and business interests while actively encouraging a thriving capitalist economy. This, along with the fact that its territory includes some of the Inner Sphere's richest and most heavily industrialized worlds, made the Lyran realm an economic superpower almost since its inception. Work, trade and profit are the central concerns of most Lyrans, who have grown accustomed to high standards of living.

Free Rasalhague Republic: In the mid-twenty-third century, citizens of the Federal Republics of Norway, Sweden and Finland emigrated to Rasalhague. Though conquered by the expanding Draconis Combine and ruled by that realm for centuries, the fiercely independent Rasalhagians rebelled at every opportunity. In 3034, Haakon Magnusson declared the formation of the Free Rasalhague Republic. The Lyran Commonwealth and Draconis Combine acknowledged the Republic and gave up control of ancestral Rasalhague worlds within their own borders. Some Combine soldiers opposed their leaders' actions and attacked the newborn Republic in what became known as the Ronin Wars; the Combine declared them traitors and helped the small Republic army defend its nation.

House Davion: Formed with the signing of the Crucis Pact in 2317, the Federated Suns was intended to stand against the Terran Hegemony's unabashed expansion. However, the Federated Suns faced its first major challenges from the Capellan Confederation. Continued Capellan aggression, including interference in the Suns' disastrous twenty-sixth-century civil war, cemented a deep hatred that has burned between the two nations for centuries. Many Federated Suns citizens harbor similar animosity toward their other neighbor, the Draconis Combine, though this enmity stems from the more recent Kentares Massacre. The Federated Suns has been especially prominent in the thirty-first century.

CLAN (NO IS MECHS ALLOWED IN FACTION COMBAT)

Smoke Jaguar: Remember Franklin Osis,
Father of his Clan.
Three strengths he gave us:
The jaguar’s spring that brings the enemy down,
The jaguar’s claws that rend the enemy’s heart,
The jaguar’s taste for the enemy’s hot blood

—The Remembrance (Clan Smoke Jaguar),
Passage 104, Verse 18, Lines 5–10

Like many of the Clan warriors it represents, the predator for whom Clan Smoke Jaguar is named owes its existence to science tampering with nature. Its genes are those of a Terran jaguar, altered in the laboratory to enable it to survive in a harsher environment. Imported by Aleksandr Kerensky’s follower to the world of Strana Mechty, the smoke jaguar throve in the fertile jungles that teemed with suitable prey. 

Members of Clan Smoke Jaguar take fierce pride in their namesake, which the Clans’ revered founder, Nicholas Kerensky, chose for them. They believe that Nicholas modeled all Clan society on the smoke jaguar.

Jade Falcon: Then Warrior Hazen grew cold
Watching noble DeChavilier die.
She heard her mind whisper
Urging her to fly,
To forget her duty.
But with a defiant cry
Proud Turkina dove
From the realm of death
To seize Hazen’s heart
And shake it free of fear
Leaving pure her soul
And her duty clear.

—The Remembrance (Clan Jade Falcon), 
Passage 8, Verse 37, Lines 58–66

Named for a genetically engineered Eden predator, Clan Jade Falcon has historically ranked among the most powerful and active Clans. Aggressive and tenacious, this Clan constantly strives to advance its own agenda without losing sight of Nicholas Kerensky’s teachings (as the Falcons interpret them). Staunch traditionalists, the Falcons were the driving force behind the development of the Crusader philosophy.

Ghost Bear: Drawing strength from each other, they survived; 
Tseng and Jorgensson emerged from the snow,
And forged a Clan in the ghost bear’s mold;
Unity of purpose and strength of spirit,
No task undertaken lightly or left half-done.
To these ideals we hold true until we all shall fall.

—The Remembrance (Clan Ghost Bear),
Passage 45, Verse 6, Lines 13–18

The Strana Mechty ghost bear is a patient predator that waits hours, even days, buried in the snow, for its prey to come into view. When the moment is right, the massive animal strikes with such lightning speed and strength that the naked eye can barely see the ghost bera at all. The surface of the snow settles again with only a faint bloodstain as evidence of the fierce and deadly battle. 

Like its namesake, Clan Ghost Bear is a conservative hunter. Never hasty, the prevailing Ghost Bear attitude is “wait and see.” When the Bear finally moves, the results are swift and often extreme. Once the Bear has its mind set on something, nothing can stand in its way. Such is the Way of the Bear.

Wolf: From Kerensky's Stars came the Eight Hundred
Beneath a banner of Truth and Righteous Light

To lift up those who had suffered and to smite down

With fearful vengeance those who had ruled

In the name of Vanity or Greed.

The thunder of their BattleMech's feet, the lightning

From their weapons, and the blood spilled in their name

Created the Clan Spirit, the forge upon which

We have fashioned ourselves to be the weapon

Of the resurrected Star League,

Honed to a razor's edge by the Trials,

By the Remembrance, and by the Words

Of the Great Kerenskys, our sires, our savior.

—The R

Nah, your write up is awesome. I'm pretty familiar with the setting but in terms of the game, being able to make stupid jokes is way more fun that going full on roleplay.
