Or maybe you are a magic using soldier for one of the 4 major factions in the world. Nothing is stopping you!
On the topic of the four factions, why don't I tell you about them so you can get a bit more of a feel for the world.
The Republic Of Icarus
The republic of Icarus is a lavish aristocratic faction striving to do nothing but accrue wealth and power in their quest to take over the galaxy. With the strongest economy of any factions and one of the most advanced militaries to ever be deployed they have always been a force to be reckoned with. Planet by planet they appropriate the galaxy for their own, conquering in the name of advancing Icarus.
The War Clans Of Ka'Esk
A miracle of sociological science with beyond a billion to one chance has led to the embodiment of civil war being the next largest faction, even rivalling that of the republic of icarus. Named after the home planet of the clans 'Ka'esk' the faction is comprised of 4 clans that all hold the same planets as eachother. Every single planet owned by the clans has one stark similarity however, no matter where you go within the faction, all 4 clans are at war. The cunning and sly Fiel clan sneak and steal from the other three. The smart and advanced Drall clan fortify their settlements and lock themselves away in mega cities of scientific development and technological advancement, developing new means to get the edge on their sibling clans. The Wise and nomadic Su'tum are masters of the magical arts, devoting their lives to ritual and study yet only lashing out in an act of war when the situation demands, neither pacifists nor warlords in their ways. And the brash and dangerous Krass clan live in a mad max like hellscape of anarchy and violence, sending war parties charging across the planets to command their territory, numbers over tactics.
The United Federation
A conglomerate of planets and solar systems in constant political dispute, all banding together for one reason. The safety from invasion. Every world leader has their own view on how the federation should be run, where the funding should go, what should be done with the military. In a community of such cultural and planetary difference everyone can find their place.
The Tressen Empire
The studious and devoted faction of the Tressen Empire has one goal in their assistance. They are to find the technology of the old world so that they may reverse engineer it for their own use. They must protect the relics of old from the rest of the universe that they deem unworthy. The youngest faction of the four but the most formidable, with few to no military defeats, they pose more and more of a threat by the day.
