Hi ,
can anyone give a bit of an overview of the factions in the base game and empires ? I went all in on Cthulhu Wars and have pledged for Gods War but in my rpg days I never got into Runequest so the background, factions and capabilities are a bit lost on me.

Cheers

Sandy has posted overviews for each of the base game factions in this very forum. Just scroll down the page.

Yeah, the best I could do would be to Copy & Paste Sandy's posts on the 4 base factions. I don't think there's been anything like that on the 4 expansion factions, though.

I can give a very brief overview of the 4 expansions:

Earth: The powerhouse faction that has possibly the most combat and marries off earth queens that gives Earth benefits the more there are on the map.

Sea: Obsessed with closing the Chaos Rift and once done can fight with their hero to get runes.

Moon: People can pay power to advance the phase of the moon and depending on the phase determines how much combat Moon has, and they're also focused totally on the Moon phase.

Invisible God: Probably the most versatile and can be played almost any way. However you don't really want to get all of your different unit types out and instead focus on just one type plus maybe a few of another.

I am planning video overviews of each faction like I did for Cthulhu Wars.

Planning to film them this week.
