NPC Faction System

Most NPCs in Star Wars Galaxies are associated with one of the many factions you will encounter through the worlds. Each of these factions can have both friends and enemies.

Faction Points

General world NPC factions have a numerical points system that determines how they will interact with the player. Players start at 0 points with all of the factions in the world. Based upon the player’s action, they may gain up to 5000 standing or lose stanting down to -5000 with each individual faction.

Friend / Foe System

When the player kills an NPC, they lose faction standing with that NPC’s faction, as well as any factions that are friendly with that NPC’s faction. At the same time, if the NPC killed has enemy factions, the player will increase his standing with those factions. While the Rebel and Imperial factions do follow this same friend/foe layout, their factions also offer more involved options and systems that the general world NPC factions do not.

When a player is friendly with a faction, by having a positive amount of standing points, NPCs of that faction will be neutral toward the player. When the player has negative standing with a faction, NPCs will become increasing more hostile, to the point where they will attack the player on site.

Due to the nature of this friend/foe system, it is possible for players to manage their standing with the various world factions by selectively killing NPCs based on their relationships with other NPCs factions. At this time the only way to increase standing with the general world factions is by killing NPCs, however future updates to the Tarkin server may elaborate on this system.

Types of Relationships

There are essentially three types of relationships the factions have with each other.

Explicit Friendship

  • “You are my friend, because we are friends.”
  • The friendship is made clear by the system, as seen in the chart below.

Implied Friendship

  • “You are my friend, because you are also enemies with my enemy.”
  • The friendship isn’t so clear by looking at the chart, but it is always true.

Enemies

  • “You are my enemy and I am also your enemy.”
  • The relationship is clear by looking at the table and is always true.
