It's a question of race.

Recommended Posts

Before anyone makes an assumption, I am not building a wall. I am working on a small side project, and was wondering what racial traits you believe best represents each faction in C.A.V and how it would work in game. Looking forward to seeing everyones ideas.

There's a couple pages of write-up on each race in the new book. It's not incredibly detailed, but here is the briefest summery I can get out of them. Please note I've never spoken with the designers about their intents, so any or all of this might be badly off base. 


Adon - Europe/Nato-without-America

Almirithil - Post-colonial junta/monarchy

Ritterlitch - Napoleonic era military-fuedalism

Malvernis - Spanish Inquisition in space

Rach - Mongol hordes crossed with KHORNEEEEE!!

Terrans - War of 1812 america, back when they were the new, scrawny upstart kid.

This thread needs to be combined with the one asking which faction is the Elves in CAV quadrant space.

My take on each race, from the Rule Book, other published material, the nomenclature of the CAVs , tanks and aircraft, discussions on FB groups and general assumptions is slightly different than Club's.


 It all has a "WWI thru  WWII in space"  vibe to it .


Adon -  England   " A race of merchants and shopkeepers"

Almirithil-  Pre Revolution Russia, They have Fulcrums, Hinds, and Bears.  " For Mother Russia!"

Malvernis - Definitely some Jihadi "schtick" going on there. Ottoman Empire crossed with the Inquisition

Ritterlich-  Germany/Prussia. It's the space vampire  Wermacht

Rach -  This one I totally agree with Club on , Mongol/Orc/Klingons/Khorne.....

Terrans- The US in WWI ,or  II,  or Korea....  " There was Dallas, from Phoenix; Cleveland - he was from Detroit; and Tex... well, I don't remember where Tex come from."


and the Templars-  self explanatory , an obvious evolution if the Crusader States had survived   " FOR  Temple! God! and the Grand Order!"



Or I could be totally full of crap and missed the mark completely. :D
