Faction Description

The Erudites value intelligence and wisdow. They spend their lives pursuing knowledge. 

Faction Manifesto

We submit the following statements as truth:

  1. 'Ignorance' is defined not as stupidity but as lack of knowledge. Lack of knowledge inevitably leads to lack of understanding.
  2. Lack of understanding leads to a disconnect among people with differences.
  3. Disconnection among people with differences leads to conflict.
  4. Knowledge is the only logical solution to the problem of conflict.

Therefore, we propose that in order to eliminate conflict, we must eliminate the disconnect among those with differences by correcting the lack of understanding that arises from ignorance with knowledge.
