Get to know the different ELEX factions in time for the game’s release on 17 October 2017. This sci-fi fantasy role-playing game is set in a planet called Magalan which was struck by a meteor and eventually led to the planet’s destruction. You will play as someone from the Albs faction. What they are, and how they live, you would have to see for yourself below!
As you progress in the game, you will be disowned by your own faction, and will find yourself hiding your identity from the other factions you will meet along the way. You will also be able to join one of them.
Here’s a quick look at each of them:
The Berserkers of Edan are the ones who bring life in Magalan. They have found a way to transmute ELEX into mana. In turn, they use mana to breathe new life in the almost dead planet. You may say that they’re the ones responsible for re-greening the planet and turning its barren lands into lush and living woodlands. They are the opposites of the Albs who chose to bring destruction to the planet, and those who live in it.
The game’s protagonist comes from the Albs Faction. They are considered the “bad guys” of Magalan. The Albs consume pure ELEX in order to be free from any emotion, think using pure logic, and total clarity. The Albs live in the mountains of Xacor, and it is their goal to conquer the rest of Magalan. They are also claiming that ELEX is, by right, theirs. They also believe that only those with strength can save the world, while those who are weak must be sacrificed so the planet can survive.
The Clerics are called the “Guardians of Magalan’s Technology.” They live in Ignadon, the site of the meteor’s impact, and where volcanic activity is always present. They worship a god called Calaan, and for them, consuming ELEX in any form is a sin. The Clerics use ELEX to power their machines. When it comes to plasma weapons, mechs, and all the industrial stuff you can imagine, this faction has got it all. They believe that a new, more advanced Magalan will rise from the ashes.
The Outlaws live in a rocky, desert wasteland called Tavar. They scavenge the ruins for weapons and equipment. This faction is free-spirited, they don’t worship any god, they don’t pledge to strict laws, nor do they choose an emotionless life. For them, the meteor came to serve as a chance for freedom, for everyone to have their own choice, and for anyone to rise to the top. Their motto: “life may be brutal, but it’s free and easy, and that all shall be rewarded for their strengths.”
