Mak_Gohae Posted October 17, 2014 Share Posted October 17, 2014 (edited) So here are a list of the syndicates and what they are.<f you read some of these descriptions you can see that some have new lore that should be explained before their inclusion and some groups are basically version 2.0 of the current faction in game. What's the point in that? Why dont you just say you are supporting that faction?< LORE New LokiSo apparently there are no humans in the current time line of these events? Thanks for letting us know by the description in a menu.This stuff should not be learned through menus. What happened to the idea that we were going to do missions for lore? Now that you have money coming in can you hire 3 guys that make 2 minute videos that explain the world we live in? Tennos are suppose to keep the balance... keep the balance for what? We still dont know the world the reside in so what are we balancing?At least this is the only faction to be totally new. They should give out the feral kubrow skin patter as a reward.Red VeilI know ideas develop as time progresses but some stuff needs to have a bit of a guard rail. So the RV are now space jokers? They just want to see the system burn? This just makes me want to have a mission where i can trap all the prisoners i helped escape... i dont want to deal with these people.This also is another big hit to Tenno presentation. We arent heroes, we arent ninja, we are a bunch of trained animals that are used by everyone. I dont feel like playing a Tenno, we are used by maniacs and people wanting space sushi. This is why i want to play as the Grineer, they have a purpose and a goal and they go. Tenno right now are basically just, "Huh?, what?, bah?, fah?" We all know that story is lower tier when it comes to game development but there has to be a base. In Halo the Spartans were solidly set in their role and even if we were shown as scary to some and villains to other the role was set. In this game we are just floating around going from job to job like people with bad luck in a bad economy, we take what we can.The Perrin SequenceSo Corpus that left the Corpus to act like the Corpus? Why arent these peope the Corpus? The Gradivus dilemma already showed we work for the Corpus so why not just have us work for them? The two extra words added there, prosperity, doesnt radically change them. In fact, it just makes me worry about them more.How about a faction that's Sentient lite? And then later on have them be the reason the Sentient return? They finally ended up contacting the Sentient proper and that brings a new chapter to that story.Cephalon SudaSo a Tenno ship faction? I thought you guys were going to expand the world with this. BTW, can i kill my ship? Cause i dont know if he is a spy and i want to make sure. But, seriously, another faction that is just a remix of something we already have seen. When Rebecca said about a Lotus syndicate she had a point. We have version 2 for a lot stuff in-game so why not another Lotus.Arbiters of HexisA faction of Tennos that want to be more Tenno than Tennos? I'll count this as a second original idea, New Loki being the first. They do have a distinct goal which is what makes this idea ok.Steel MeridianStandard rebel alliance seen in every story ever. I guess there is little to say about this because we all know it was going to happen. REFINEMENT New LokiThis is fine, nothing wrong with people worshiping humans.Red VeilHow about having two red veils, the maniacs and the moderates? That would be an interesting story. In the middle of fighting for change they end up breaking into two factions and end up having a mini-war against each other? It would be interesting having a separate story that is not about the two main factions that usually get used.The Perrin SequenceThe Corpus sell to whoever has the money, right? So how about some super rich group, you create a new reason why they are rich, they hold the monopoly on certain source, and they secretly ended up purchasing a huge amount of Corpus weapon and now they want to carve his own kingdom with the army that they built? What's in it for the Tenno? Clear the Corpus and Grineer from their lands and they will be your buddies.Cephalon SudaSince there is little lore on what is going on there is a theory that Lotus is AI. So maybe this could be that Rebecca suggested, this could be Lotus 2.0. Normal Lotus doesnt seem to want to help the Tenno recover their memories and your ship doesnt have memories about the past, either. So some part of Lotus breaks off and actively goes out to search out info on what happened.Steel MeridianGive them some flavour. How about a whole faction of Grineer rebels? Or a combination of Grineer and Corpus working together? Just give them some spice. Corpus rebels that captured some Grineer cloning facility and are creating some good clones with the help of some Rebel Grineer clones. And when i mean good clones i mean clean healthy clone. A story could be that we are trying to save them from the Grineer that is actively trying to destroy and steal the tech.In reality all these factions should have brought something totaly new, instead of just being 2.0 of thing already in game, to open up the world. So far there was little opening of it.Additional or Replacement SyndicatesHere's an idea.Get rid of Corpus 2.0 and have a contest where the community can create one of the these new syndicates.I think that would assure some actual variety when i comes to expanding this stuff. Lore Part 2: from the website. Steel MeridianThe Grineer are not often seen as valorous individuals, but time and again members of their leadership have displayed a certain code of honor. Members of Steel Meridian set aside their former allegiances to defend those who cannot defend themselves.It looks like there is no change. Actually, it appears that there more Grineer than the previously stated leader. Arbiters of HexisThe Arbiters of Hexis exemplify a burning passion to search for the truth of Tenno ability, composed with the knowledge that Tenno are far greater than even their shattered history suggests. No change.Cephalon SudaWith such powerful technology rooted in the past the hunt for knowledge guides every force in the Solar System. At a time where information holds so much power Cephalon Suda, a consciousness seemingly devoid of emotion, follows a curious hunger to learn all she can.No change. Now that i am thinking about it they should be folded into the Arbiters. They look to be following parallel paths.The Perrin SequenceFollowing their own doctrine to achieve Profit, The Perrin Sequence have turned away from the Corpus ideology that conflict must be capitalized upon. Instead these merchants search for ways to exercise their trade without instigating violence.Some more clarification but i still dont see why this needed to be a Syndicate. There are still a bunch of ways of being evil in business that dont have to include making money from conflict.Red VeilChange is sudden, violent, and a necessary force to ensure the system can return to a state of balance. Red Veil see themselves as merely the instrument of this change. So they went from what appeared to be crazy maniacs to a Tenno-lite faction. You know what? I think the crazy maniac version was better. Sure, i didnt like that this wasnt properly explained earlier but being crazy maniac is a bit more unique than this tenno-lite version.New LokaNo matter how far we reach into the stars New Loka knows it is Earth that has always been our home. Turning away from genetic tampering that has twisted the Grineer and the technological meddling that has corrupted Earth it is New Loka that fights for the repopulation of a world once abandoned.This is really the one Syndicate that may have a new story. Are they some religious nuts? Or some nutty hippies? First In-Game ImpressionSo the New Loki sound like some church.They employ Infested Specters which i found strange for purity people.But i guess religions, even in the future, have their.... problems.I think the website description should be ignored cause the RV are back to being maniacs.I guess they are peaceful but they are still the Corpus.This is a copy of your ship's AINo character at all. Generic to the core.These guys are not getting scary and interesting. Edited October 26, 2014 by Mak_Gohae Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
