Islanders – Individuals first and foremost, who make their own rules. Value your liberty or have it taken from you. They avoid the authority of others, resent restrictions, and challenge the status quo. They are not out to intentionally disrupt the order of things as part of some chaotic agenda, at least not without good reason. Are they ultimate free spirits, or just anarchists? It can go either way.

Lucky Bastards – True neutral seamen who shipwrecked at the Rify Cliffside, now founding themselves a new home in Stary Yar.

Rangers Chernarus – The Rangers are keen to use force to attain their overall goals. They achieve materialistic gain by stacking the deck to their advantage. There are no laws, no government and no rules left to tell anyone what to do; due to this apocalyptic setting Rangers take what they want and do not ask twice. They are also known for their impulsive and inquisitive behavior.

RISE – Their goal as anarchists is to spread chaos. The group stands to remove any group or government that tries to enforce rules, rebuild society, or becomes too powerful to keep the chaos in balance. They also strive to spread the word of “The Cause”, in all corners of Chernarus.

The Scribes – A neutral evil group that was sent to a small Western Russian territory known as South Zagoria, to gather material goods and information under the guise of “Technology”, which can be considered anything that uses a battery in any shape or form, in hopes to keep the technology out of the wrong hands as an effort to prevent another major catastrophe that previously plunged the land into chaos and eventually rebuild their technological paradise.

Shadow’s Rim – Shadow’s Rim are a free-spirited group, a collective of friendly minded people who strive to not only survive, but thrive together and feel life come back to them through the fun and joy of music, smoking, cars, racing and especially each other’s friendships. Their code of life is simple but not always easy to live by; FREEDOMFRIENDSHIP and the combination of the two. The Freedom of Friendship.

Torchwood – Torchwood and its members are bound by no moral code, other than to completely and satisfactorily complete each task assigned to them, maintain absolute confidentiality, and not only provide services, but complete respect to all of their clients. That being said, they often try to avoid killing unless it is necessary, they’re hired too, or they are on a sensitive job that requires no witnesses.

The Vigil – The Vigil aims to bring a lifeless town back to its feet and to create a positive and friendly atmosphere out among the surrounding groups. They also aim to supply survivors with a safe place to stop for food, trades and company as well as to build trust among their neighbors and friends, to build bonds that will benefit them and those around going forwards.
