Image of the gang descriptions

Gangs refer to one of the four groups of players that participate in the quarterly wasteland competition. Gangs are not mandatory to join, and players are free to "go rogue" or play without a gang affiliation. However, doing so will bar them from competing in the wasteland. Players are automatically placed in the gang with the lowest total level when they first log in to their account. If a player chooses to leave the gang and join another, the cost is 500c. The four gangs are The Chapter, Dark Flame, Blade of Dawn, and the Outcasts. Each of the gangs have different political structures, with The Chapter, Blade of Dawn, and Outcasts being various forms of democracies, while Dark Flame is a dictatorship.

Favors / Disfavors

Once you reach rank 5 you gain the ability to give other members in your gang favors and disfavors, the total favor of a member is used to determine their rank from 1 up to 10. Ranks 11 to 18 work differently and are unaffected by such favors as they are appointed in various other ways.

Each rank from 5 up to 18 has a different strength favor, that will work in either a positive or negative way against someones rank depending on how they use it. Each member gets to cast 1 favor or disfavor each day, and they cannot be saved up over time. For how much favor you must accumulate to reach a certain rank, check out the rank summary page. Below is a list of the ranks that can favor / disfavor and the strengths they have.

Votes and Politics

How the council is elected in your Gang is very dependent on which gang you are in, kick votes and referendums are the same in all the gangs however.

  • Kick Votes
If the gang leadership wants to kick someone from the gang who is over rank 1, they must start a kick vote. This vote is voted on by the 5 council members, and must gain 3 votes of yes before the kick will be processed. The enforcer, ambassador, council and leader can start these votes. If they are rank 1 they can be instantly kicked If they are rank 1 with an inactive time of 36 hours or more leadership must provide a valid reason.
  • Referendums
These are votes that have little effect, they are used simply to measure public opinion on different topics. Gang leadership may set a referendum up with any question and any number of options, results will not be displayed until the vote has closed.
  • Forced Contests
All council members have the option to step down from positions voluntarily, if this happens a forced contest will open. Which will remain locked until 2 people enter, this contest will not be closed until a replacement is found. This also happens if a council member is kicked or deleted from the game. None of this happens in the Dark Flame however, if a member of the council steps down then Cain finds a replacement.
  • Contests
Contests are used to determine who is on the council, and they are gang dependent. So are explained below for each gang.

The Chapter

Any member of rank 6 or higher can contest for a position on the council, they simply choose a member of the council and contest them. The process costs 500 credits, a vote will then open with the member and the council member listed as options. This vote will remain locked for 2 days to allow other people to join it at an equal cost of 500 credits. After 2 days the contest will open for voting, all members of rank 4 or higher will vote and the winner will take the place on the council. The voting period lasts 5 days.


The voting process works exactly the same as the Chapters, however the voting period lasts only 2 days instead of 5 days after the vote opens.

Blade of Dawn

Members of this gang may not start contests, instead 5 contests (one for each of the council) open on the 1st of every month. Members of rank 6 or higher may join these contests at the cost of 500 credits. After 2 days the vote will open and last for 5 days, at the end of which the winner will take the place. If nobody joins the contest, the council member keeps their place.

Dark Flame

There are no contests in this gang, the council is assigned by the gangs mysterious deity called Cain. All decisions are final, and no argument about council positions is allowed.

Council and Leaders

The 5 members of the council each have a vote they can cast for the leader, they can either choose to vote for themselves or someone else. This vote and its end result are all done in real time through Gang Controls. In the result of a draw, or the majority of the council not casting their vote there will be no leader assigned. The leader retains all powers as a member of the council, and simply gains some new abilities on top of that.

All leaders should only use their extra abilities with the consent of the council.

Gang forums

Every gang has his own set of four forums. The first forum is the novice forum (the lowest forum, where everyone can post in), this regularly used for gang games and other vital information that will help you further in the gang and game. The second forum is the members forum. You only get there if you rank 3 and above. This forum is for gang discussions. The third one is the Elder forum, this forum is a private forum for leadership to talk and only accessible for rank 12 and up.

Note: Every gang has other names for the forums, but they work the same way.


War and Hated Status

Each gang hates another gang and is at war with another, this status cannot be changed and is due to the differing beliefs gangs have. You can see the status of each gang in the gang list.

Due to gang members being unable to attack 25% of the game, they gain experience bonuses for defeating those in opposing gangs. If you defeat a member of a gang your gang is at war with you gain +50% and

Each gang is appointed a staff rep, this rep is there to moderate the forums and make sure that the system is run fairly. All actions of the council must be within the Gang Rules set down in their library. Any complaints about the actions of Gang Leadership should go to the Gangs Staff Rep.

Gang Wars

Main Article: Gang Warfare

The general idea of warfare is that the four gangs battle against each other on a grid-based map.


Part of a user's profile, indicating they are a Rogue.

Anyone not a member of one of the four Gangs (Blade of Dawn, Dark Flame, Outcasts, & The Chapter) is called a Rogue. These players have no allegiance and can attack anyone (and thus do not earn EXP bonuses), but at the same time anyone can attack them. In becoming a Rogue, a player voluntarily opts out of Gang-specific features; they do not have direct access to items exclusive to Gang members, and cannot participate in Gang Warfare. Rogues have access to an exclusive forum.
