Factions and Forces
Many factions and civilizations exist in the BrikVerse. Here, they are organized by relative size and function. There is often overlap...some corporations are larger than entire nations, for example...so where a faction does not fit by size, it is placed by closest concept. Factions in BrikWars can generally be described in one or more of three different ways. Toybox Factions are factions that are significantly represented by real, physical toys. StoryBrik Factions are factions that have accumulated Kanon through BrikFiction, Battle Reports, Forum Battles, and the like. StoryBook Factions, or BrikFic Factions, are factions that are significantly represented by abstract art, such as BrikFiction, digital construction programs and artwork, or physical artwork. Certain construction programs, like LDD, straddle the line between the last two descriptions because some players believe it is firmly a work of fiction and others believe it is a completely viable construction tool. It will become apparent how factions may be described as one browses the Factions and Forces articles.
Dominions and Empires
Dominions and Empires represent the largest factions. Their governing bodies rule over everything from nations to continents, from a single planet to several in a system, or from a region of space to a galaxy or more. They represent the biggest ideas or capabilities BrikWarriors have, either in concept or in literal bricks.
Civilizations are very large groups, often singularly governed, which are smaller than empires or have less power or influence. These may be cities, states, territories, very small nations, or particularly large cultures. These represent middle sized BrikWarrior armies and ideas and are often more focused on massed forces than individual characters.
Organizations are the smallest of BrikWars factions. They range from parties to squads, from packs and gangs to bands and companies, or from small businesses to multi-national corporations.
