Initially Arclight contains four factions, however in July the faction creation rules will be uploaded to the website and everyone can build one to their specific tastes.

The Spartan Worlds - Once a member of the Sol Protectorate, the Spartan Worlds rebelled and started a giant civil war. After years of battle, the Sol Protectorate simply pulled everything they had from the systems and left, plunging the rebel worlds into instant anarchy. Through the power of the Spartan Bank, the rebel colonies slowly stabilized and are once again becoming a power in the universe.
The Paq - Mysterious warrior-hunter alien race. They go from planet to planet hunting dangerous foes. Their fierce tribe-loyalty has caused many different Paq to scatter around the universe. If anything could ever unite them all, the galaxy would never be the same.
