If you are a fan of the Endless games (you should be!) They are having a vote for a community-created "Diplomatic Pacifist"-themed faction to be included in the game at launch. https://www.games2gether.com/endles...ontest-design-phase-voting-time?page=2#thread. It's pretty cool that this studio gives so much power to their fans. And they'll have 2 more parts to this contest that you can contribute to later. Be sure to link your steam account to increase your vote strength. Please consider my buddy's faction, "Champion's of a multi-race Empire". They are build around incorporating all of the minor factions (species) in the game (24 at launch). Many great sci-fi have some sort of strong peaceful republic/federation, and the Endless galaxy could use one too. Lots of great choices though, so best of luck to all!
