I would like to see a Confederacy of Independent Systems faction filled with aliens and droids and corporate goons.

I do know there has been at least a vague interest in a Chiss faction, but I also think a droid faction could be interesting too :)

We have a few droids running around but I’m not sure what a whole droid faction would do?

We could do like separatists who use droids and want to leave the Republic?

Something different in addition to everything else.

I'll think on it before I make a suggestion. :)

I would like to see any of the above mentioned factions. The reason I didn't personally vote for a faction of species is just because sadly I've seen them fall in the past. I think perhaps a subfaction of maybe a Chiss Ascendancy or a Droid Army faction would be actually pretty cool to see.

I always liked the religious ones like the Witches - seeing is how in lore there is both "good" and "bad", similar to the force and "light and "dark", so that area always interested me, and I loved the idea of a "crazy" (point of view) cult-like faction based on religions like Jedi or the Sith. A subfaction of Grey Jedi or something similar may be very interesting, and it might also be interesting to see a new kind of thought process or religion started, seeing is how people could go sideways, struggle with themselves or with the new faction, it could make up for a lot of interested stories.

I think, given enough people interested in a faction, anything could be successful with the right amount of posts and players.

Also, with the hype of the Mandalorian, a Mandalorian Faction might be very interesting to see once more. I like the cultural factions, as well, they always seemed to have a core value with again, create great stories so that they can struggle or play with the lines of a code or a type of honor.

I think I’d be down for a witch faction or a mando faction. We have both types of characters on the board so ready players and I think with the Clone Wars and Mandalorian being on Disney + they might draw attention.

That's true. I think you're right with Disney plus having some umph to help with ease of access and may draw more attention. I'd be a part of either/both since I, too, have characters in both categories and I'll be around more to keep up with posts now.

Maybe instead of what we've seen on TGC before, we revamp the ideal or belief system or change things up when it comes to the witches or mandos in order to play things differently. I'd love a new angle for my characters and to explore other avenues.

We could for sure make some changes. In the Clone Wars it seems Dathomir is bathed in darkness and the night sisters rarely leave it, though some are contracted out to wealthy citizens. As far as I know they also weren’t elemental force users like the Shapers of Kro Var were. But I’m the EU there are lightside witches too. I’d have to dig around to learn more. I know Chaos has a very active and thriving Witch community there so maybe they would be willing to lend advice.

For the Mandalorians I’m not sure how they were on TGC 1.0 because I was never part of them back then. I think it would be awesome to base some of it off of what we see in the new series though.

I think these factions could work:
- a separatist faction that becomes a force against the new republic. The empire doesn’t seem to be taking off so maybe that would be more of a war story.

- a witch faction that could be more traditional to how we see them in Star Wars. Playing more minor roles and subtly manipulating things rather than taking over the entire galaxy.

- a mandalorian faction that combines elements from the show and the EU. Maybe they could also wage war against the republic or something. Cops and robbers style. That might work with just TGU as well.

- The Shapers of Kro Var. I mean what’s not to love about elemental bending?

-A grey Jedi order? Though I’m not sure we have enough a Jedi to support that.

There is the Bendu for a Grey Faction, but I wouldn't be opposed to the Prophets of the Dark Side returning as a seperate entity.

Or some pirates. Love me some pirates.

So it’s looking like Mandalorian is the current winner, I’ll leave it open for another day or so in case we get some last minute inputs 😊
