The Proposal/Feedback Phase (knowing as moving into Stage 2) is an important part of faction development and approval, so please read this over and ask questions, express what you like, give suggestions you have, advice on what may or may not work based on your experience, etc. Keep in mind that Admins do not necessarily need to be convinced to approve it, as a faction without potential wouldn't even be posted. Feedback means both support and giving what you see could help shape their faction story and place in the community!

=============================

The Jackals
By Fey Correia, Nikolai Niekerk (player withdrawn)

TYPE: Faction (street gang)

MEMBERS: Rhys Pentewyn (player withdrawn), Anoneke Resident, Carlwhatever Resident

BACKGROUND: The Jackals are going to focus on kidnap for ransom (and for fun - anyone need to hire some goons for their partner’s secret consensual-non-consent fantasy? Want to hire someone to take revenge on that person who ruined your life or stole your boyfriend?), prostitution, and loan sharking/blackmail/extortion (with the twist that if a loan recipient is unable to pay back their loan, they may be forced into prostitution, or committing crimes, until their debt is paid). These activities will be fully RP’d out, warts and all, and there will be boom times and bust times. If the prostitution isn’t bringing in enough money, they can always pair up and tie down their clients in order to steal their stuff - and their identities.

UNIQUE: We’re opening a shelter called Charity House! It’s going to serve dual purposes. OOCly it could be a good place for new players to start, to find RP and connect with others in a (oocly) welcoming space. We have players from all time zones wanting to get involved. ICly, the front will give the gang a way to meet new people ICly and try to get them involved somehow, either through loose associations, or forming business partnerships - legal ones or illegal ones. Chance meetings might provide them with people needing loans, or women struggling for money, or folks seeking to make a little cash on the side who aren’t terribly concerned about the morality of the task they’re asked to perform.

FLAW: The gang is just coming together and lacks synergy. Currently, there are plenty of tensions in the gang that will either bring them together or cause them to perish. ICly, everyone is struggling to figure out what their role is, which leaves ‘lower’ members at risk of being poached by other gangs that might offer them better treatment. This can cause inefficiency and often fatal weaknesses in a town as ruthless as Hathian. Dealing with other gangs and the HPD requires a cohesiveness that the Jackals do not yet (and possibly never will) possess.

POTENTIAL ENEMY: We’d love to involve other gangs. A big part of creating this gang was to give the other gangs some direct competition - for instance, both the Koga and Jackals will be trying to run prostitutes, and there isn’t really room for that in Hathian without conflict. Our gang is getting off the ground with the core mandate of not allowing any sex worker in Hathian to work independently, it just won’t be tolerated; every hooker must pick someone to pay. Eventually, this could turn into an all-out gang war, with all citizens being forced to take a side one way or the other and, if they choose the wrong side, paying the consequences. We’re obviously extremely open to working with/against other factions as well, it just seems like the Koga may be the biggest source of conflict because of their size, at least at first. Ideally we’d have RP with all the factions. Our goal is OOC collaboration and IC competition. We want to work with other gangs and factions to make the sim the best it can be and the most inviting to newcomers (looking for dark RP) that it can be.

EXPERIENCE: Former faction lead who ran a successful gang for several years in CD. (Peri added this part, hence why it's short!)
