Official Factions of DayzUnderground
The Wanderers – Brought together by the feeling of disenchantment regarding the groups they used to call home. Things have changed so much they no longer feel ties and connections to the groups and ideals they once subscribed to, and instead decided to do what they perceive to be best for themselves.
The Rangers – 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.
The Overlook – They seek to help survivors get off the coast with all their basics needs fulfilled. As such, and regardless of one’s allegiance, they provide one who seeks assistance with food, water and basics so they can be on their way in-land ready, safe and sound.
Torchwood – A group of religious fanatics, hellbent on saving the world and the people in it, ensuring that Chernarus is safe for all. They aggressively spread their religion of The Light, in hopes of converting the blind and saving the world by any means necessary.
The Dugout – They strive to provide a “safe” place for survivors by helping anyone who decides to enter their territory. With their motto “Take what you need, leave what you don’t”, they host a donation-funded community camp that just about anyone is allowed to visit, trade at and share stories with Employee’s of the Dugout.
The Black Cross – Through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, the Black Cross is always there in times of need. They aspire to turn compassion into action so that all people affected by disaster across the country and around the world receive care, shelter and hope.
The 506 – A chaotic good faction that has created the Western Free State and punishes those who would bring evil to their home.
Dark as Midnight – DAMN are an apocalypse gang in every sense of the phrase. People liken them to a cult or simply mindless cannibals, but neither are true.
The Carnival – A band of strange and psychotic clowns just trying to get by and have a good time in the end of days. They view order and society as the downfall of man and seek to rewrite the world using fear.
The Black Sheep – A chaotic good group that seeks to help those that cannot easily defend themselves and help those that are in need of assistance. They will generally keep to themselves but will help those in need if warranted.
While everyone can start a group and leave their mark throughout the community and get featured on e.g. the territory map, official faction status is awarded to groups that meet specific faction requirements and have proven themselves as significant contributors of the community.
Factions are the source for much of the lore driven here on our server. They interact in unique ways and create stories to tell and for others to take part. They receive custom armbands in-game.
