Factions

The purpose of factions are to align yourself to a specific cause or school of thought / mentality on The UO Project. Factions fully integrate PvP combat and negate the functionality of guardzones when fighting a member of an opposing faction. Killing members of an opposing faction will gain you rank points, allowing you to climb a hierarchy within that faction.

There are currently two factions. To join one, find the faction recruiter in the faction's home town and say "join". You will receive a free faction shield when you do so. However, you may only join 1 faction during the entire life span of your account so please think the decision through carefully. To leave a faction and return to normal gameplay, simply say "resign" to the recruiter, you cannot resign with 7 days of joining.

Joining a faction will also allow you to use the .ochome function to teleport to the home town of your faction.
