There are 20 Houses in the world. Each House is made up of a number of factions, with a maximum of 12 factions to a House. Factions are groups of players that join together under the same banner.
To become an additional faction the existing factions need to vote on whether your faction can join. To be accepted, you would need a majority and at least three votes.
In order to create a faction you must be at least the rank of page (14).
While in the 'current faction' window, type the name of the person you wish to invite into the faction and a 'Invite User' button will become available to click.
To join a faction you must be invited by one of the officers of the faction. Players at the rank of 14 (Page) can join a faction.
The players in red are players that have been invited to your faction but not accepted the request yet.
If other users are in the same faction as you? Yes, you can see whether they are on-line by the radio button within the Faction, Current Faction section.
