“We are the few, the proud, we are Legion!!!”

Little is know of the Dust Legion’s origins, but it was created as a stalwart bastion against the Rodvyr invasion. They stood as a symbol of hope and honor among the humans and their ranks were easily replenished from willing volunteers. For years, the Legion stopped the Rodvyr advancement through the burn. But the war’s end loomed ever over the horizon and in the Burn, treachery ruled the land. In a coup, the strongest regiment was lured into a trap and slaughtered to the man. The Dust Legion was betrayed from within and fell to in fighting. The legend of the Legion never died, and some still claim the title of Legionnaire. They are indistinguishable from any other denizen of the burn, except by their deeds and the Legion Swords they carry. They are a few wayward legionnaires, but they are a painful reminder of the Legion’s wayward past. These wayward children are hunted by legionnaires who are relentlessness and unforgiving for the treachery they represent.

I took my kids to Hemisfair Park today, the site of the old 1968 world’s fair. As I traveled throughout the historic buildings, statues, artwork, and water attraction, I thought “this would be a great site for a base of operations of a post apocalyptia faction.”

I spied a sign that promoted a display for the ‘Rotary Club’, their symbol was a gear and I thought that it would make an interesting faction. I found the concept intriguing as it has the possibility for introducing steam punk into the game. I didn’t like the name Rotary Club, so I’m trying to think up an apropriate apocalyptia name. Here is what I have come up with thus far.

  • Rotary Guild
  • Rotary League
  • Gear Heads
  • Gear Punks
  • The Order of Axis
  • The Order of Gears

I still need to develop the faction more, but this is a start. Please cast your vote, or if you have another preference, let me know.
