I've noticed factions on the strategic map in Illyriad, and found the Faction Info page under options, but I don't know what factions are? Are they player or GM created and controlled? Can I interact with a faction?

In short, what does a faction mean to me?

I found this wiki page but it only tells me they're NPC alliances, not what they do. –  C. Ross Jan 17 '11 at 14:37

Factions aren't yet fully released, but the devs had to put them geographically on the map and provide information about them ingame (eg description and standings on the faction page) otherwise people would mightlily complain when they suddenly found their nice new city was actually next to the flesh-eating-zombie faction! I know I would.

ie, Factions are on the map, and they have trade hub locations that they own that you can see on the World Map - but there is currently no way of interacting with them.

A useful post from the devs as follows:
