  • Faction Leader

    I can't remember if this has ever been done (probably, but I'm taking a shot at it).

    Anyway, my question to you all is this: If you could be any one of the faction leaders, which one would you be? This isn't "Which Faction leader you agree with most" or "Who would you like to date".

    I'm talking about YOU actually leading the faction. So, who's will you be?

    A Lady or Lord of the Gaian's? Will you preserve the environment on Planet?

    A Chairman of the Hive? Will you value personal power and total command over millions of citizens, leading your faction to 'Humanity's Utopia'?

    A Provost of the University? Discovering new information and delving into vast research possibilities?

    A CEO of your company? Making untold amounts of wealth and satisfying every hedonistic craving?

    A Colonel in the Spartan Federation? Will you thrive in the "great outdoors" and lead your own personal militia?

    A Sister or Deacon leading the Lord's Believers? Will you lead your people to spiritual aspects that other factions cannot comprehend?

    A Commissioner of the U.N. Peacekeepers? Uphold Earth's values on a foreign planet?

    OR....


    A Cult Leader? Will you lead a cult, worshipping Planet as a 'God'?

    A Cyborg Leader? Will you be a member of the 'collective' and expunge all of your emotions for "logic"?

    A Foreman of Free Drones? Will you lead those of the downtrodden into a new life of industrial knowhow and a (supposed) egalitarian society?

    A Datajack Hacker of the DataAngels? Will you forgo society and lead a quasi-anarchistic society that concerns itself with computers and data?

    A Pirate Captain of the Nautilus Pirates? Forget the landlubbers and sail the high seas in search for adventure and gold?!

      I wouldn't want to have to lead people.
      I'm building a wagon! On some other part of the internets, obviously (but not that other site).

        For a decision like that, I'd have to choose the faction leader that is most like me (and way much more like me than any other character in SMAC/X or any downloadable factions I've ever seen. That leader is Academician Prokhor Zakharov. He and I have pretty much all the same strengths and weaknesses in real life, and I probably wouldn't wish it any other way. We're both logical, smart, lack ethical and social judgement, going to take engineering majors in college, and really like technology.

        On top of that, his date of birth was one day after I turned eight.

              If I had to choose though, I would probably go for Morganites.

              Cyborgs would be my top choice were the cybernetic addition a symbiosis rather than a takeover.

                Cyborgs, or University, or Data Angels, roughly in that order.

                  No option of being one of the aliens then?

                  I think I would choose Cyborgs. You'd probably need to be one to be able to run an entire faction with more or less absolute authority.

                      <---- I'm a drone, I would lead the drones over their oppressors.

                      Funny thing is I am an intellectual at heart, and would follow under the borgs or univ.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger. It works the same in any country." -- Hermann Goering
