I need more ideas for factions. Please post.

Ideas I've had which are probably classy enough:
-Pirates: promiscuous, so large in numbers
-Ninjas: few, but more powerful
-Zombies: can make more zombies, are very durable but very slow
-Clowns: balloon swords, acid flowers, molotov cocktail water balloons
-Robots: lasers!

Ideas I've had which are less classy:
-Army: standard guns and stuff.
-Aliens: spaceships and ray guns.
-Soviets: like the army but communist!
-Giant bugs: duh
-Musicians: the power of rock!

Ideas other people have had that I like:
-Lawyers
-The Irish
-Spiders
-Penguins

Hey, that gives me a great idea! Since you put Christians in there, let's also put in Islamic terrorists just to be REALLY TASTEFUL! Rolleyes

oh dear, while we're singling out groups, you might as well add Hindus, Jews, Devout Athiests Wink, Scientologists, and a few other groups that would absolutely love publicity. On second thought, religious groups may not be the best idea...

Monkeys??? with banannas
Babies with loud piercing cries
University students with empty wallets and beer bottles?

The Irish.

Ghost/poltergeist. Possibly too similar to zombies, but arguably not. Possible abilities: able to become non-physical, cause fear, maybe be created from the death of enemy units?

Spirit/demon: few in number, possibly even fixed numbers. Able to inhabit/take over an enemy unit. Could provoke/prolong fights between other factions, for example.

Wizards/sorcerers
Cowboys
Anthropomorphic Animals

Programmers, Gamers, Fanboys, Booth Babes.

Lions Tigers and Bears! Oh my!

Actually, I didn't see Spiders, Penguins or falling rocks anywhere...
(btw, Lemmings rulez)

Hrmm what kind of game is this?

And my addition is bankers. Good economy/political skills might not even apply to whatever your doing.

Druids, Elves, Goblins, Orcs, Kavus, Elementals, Rats, Insects, Squirrels, Soldiers, Rebels, Zombies, Saprolings, Wizards, Merfolk, Cephalids, Avens, and... Slivers.

Of course, you'll have an IP suit on your hands if you use more than 3. Grin

Such a fun thread.
Don't forget Pimps, Prostitutes, Police, and Politicians.

They go hand in hand like "Sha-na-na-na-na"

The answers to your profound questions are here My guess was close, but I had to look this up.

Mole people...now we're onto something.
Mothmen, Sasquatch, Wendigo, Chupacabra, Cannibalistic Underground Humanoid Dwellers (CHUD), and their faithful mutated CrocoGators.
Oh and the scary Land Squids of London!
