⋆ Unity of Broken Hills ⋆
« on: March 15, 2016, 19:07 »

The Unity of Broken Hills (UoBH, Unity, Unity of BH) is Fallout-based faction connecting "interracial" status and affiliation to Broken Hills with action-oriented gameplay.

Faction was created in march 2016 by outgoing President of the New California Republic backed by loyal NCR veterans and fellow members of Treasure Hunters who decided to start own standalone project in new environment while keeping their rockin' way of playing. The early squad consisted of Lucek, Vick Rockstar, Promień, Thant, Gobby and Gizmo supported by Warpig, Lolum, Rilwen and Mauro, and with time expanded by Delta, Justin, Sarghot, Marti, Willis, Koragorn, Sausage, Deano, Zdzichu, TheChosenOne, Kille, Rysiek, Godric, Pannu, Bolek, Dark Soul and many others. Despite of time and changes in the composition core of founders and supporters remains active to this day, although initially international group unintentionally evolved into more Polish-based.

As the name might suggest Unity of BH according to its Fallout archetype concentrate actions on Broken Hills as priority, but for sake of good fun not avoiding any kind of activity in the farthest corners of the Wasteland. Faction is famous for heroic attempts to defend the city, as well as for regular patrolling surrounding areas in search of hostile units.

The Unity may be categorised as hybrid RP/PVP faction due to focusing activities on PVP while having some RP elements and many similarities with roleplaying factions, but it's worth saying that UoBH rather stand aside from so-called PVP community, also treat roleplaying more like background than the main object of interest.

When it comes to the "moral/ethic" alignment the Unity may be put among "bright side" factions, which is quite obvious if keep in mind specific Fallout origins of UoBH and fact that group consist of members known from their positive attitude, but worth say that faction is focused on just being fair toward others and keeping the law mainly in reference to Broken Hills without playing the role of self-appointed sheriff of the Wasteland or Tribunal of Justice. Manifestation of the above is simple but strict policy toward others which can be briefly described as friendly toward non-hostile factions/players (especially newcomers), and hostile toward all kinds of so-called scums and raiders (these who attacked BH patrols or raid the town).

In terms of diplomacy, Unity is rather willing to stick to alliances built on long-term positive relations, than build some spontaneous pacts, however, faction is open on coop with everyone who share and respect its goals, identity and independence.

Since the early days, UoBH has partially closed status and not recruiting openly. The internal structure is targeted on loyal, trusted and devoted members who respecting origins of faction and act according to the code of conduct. Such strict policy has big impact on the number of members, but in exchange Unity rarely had to deal in own ranks with omnipresent clan jumpers, baserapers, trolls, abusers, noobs harassers, raging schoolboys and plain idiots.

The fundamental element of Broken Hills Unity is openness to non-human characters and from the beginning, super mutants are important part and the hallmark of the group. UoBH can be considered as the first stable and long-term attempt to introduce totally underrated at the time super mutants builds into realtime PVP, which resulted in their popularization among other players/factions. Over time, the ranks have been expanded by ghouls, but due to many disadvantages, they are rather like bonus emphasizing the character of faction than full playable alts.

Which is quite obvious core concept of the faction is based on Broken Hills community and its Unity Patrols known from Fallout 2, but as non-direct inspirations right from FOnline 2 worth mention are also Project Mutie (Junktown Scouts super mutants squad) and faction the Broken Hills Hunters (BH-based RP/PVP gang active in far past). For sure not without significance are connections of the Unity with legendary faction Treasure Hunters after which UoBH not only inherited some members but also acquired specific positive ethos and loose style of playing. Despite the similarities, UoBH is not associated with the Master's Unity known from Fallout nor with player's faction called Unity active some time ago.
