Hi Leonatos,

it is actually not planed to make official alliance rules. The factions are perfectly balanced, with weak spots and things were they excel. So mixing it all together would ruin this and forces people to make powergaming (need to buy certain models to have a chance to win... like a certain other company likely did...).

On the other hand, it is your game. Feel free to mix whatever you like (as long as your playing partners are cool with it...). You can tell a little story about the game where you explain, why in all hells the mortans join forces with the halodynes etc.
You get a lot of inspiration from the background, so do as you please ;-)

Mixing factions works only in a "narrative games".
In any other playstyle they are actually counter-productive.

After reading through background book:

Haw about the Maluria (half Aetheronian-half deamon realm)? That would be an opportunity to introduce in one go:
- Aetheronian technology and aesthetics
- demons
- Aetheronian-demon hybrids
- something really twisted and original: I don't recall seeing anywhere army/nation of half-demon hybrids. Pure demon armies yes, but not combined arms of demons and normal beings.

I think a lot of the suggested ideas are very cool.
But the Stygians are the clear winners in my book Smile

The Malentians are also Aetherions and will also have enslaved demons as one subfaction. I think they are more integral to the main plot-line of Calydorn, so they would be before Maluria.
