Add a New Faction Page

Before creating a faction page, your addition should be reviewed by staff in one of three ways:

  • Uncoded, PC factions should be listed as a resource for your approved character sheet.
  • Coded, PC factions must be an approved faction on game. Application available here: http://commondescentmush.com/factions
  • NPC faction additions must be requested via +request.

For consistency, please use the faction's name, minus any leading articles like 'the', 'a', or 'an'.
