The Aetheric Sargasso
The Factions of the Great Aether Fleets:
Pirate factions, although widespread and influential, are mostly individual mercenary bands and not a coherent faction except in the region of the Maelstrom, where Capt. Hieronymus MacAlder’s Brotherhood of the Black Maze currently holds control.
Aether Nomads are often, though quite erroneously, counted among the Pirates. Nomad tribes, clans and familes can be found among all the major factions.
