Post How do I choose a faction/house to join?
Is it best to choose a faction with players in my immediate vicinity? Is it possible to know how active or badass other factions/players are? I've not seen any particular tips or adverts on this forum.

I am new to Stronghold but I spent several years playing a game similar, I'd like to join a faction where I can learn how to kick *, take names, and basically be awesome at this game.

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you are looking for a fighting faction/house. Best way of going about it is usually asking around, players such as your steward or sheriff are a good place to start. If you have a certain house already in mind you could message their officers directly and express your interest.

Don't get discouraged if you don't get a reply from every officer, many of them have dozens of mail threads sent to them each day and may overlook yours. As with almost anything persistence is the key to success. :)

War Goddess, this isn't really a game where you can pump out a military that will be able to fight in wars early on. My advice is to take it slow: build up your economy, stay neutral, become a vassal and be friendly. Try to get as much honor as you can so that you can rise in rank quickly and build your defenses to deter other players from attacking you. I overcame my prejudice of factions and joined a House because the members were very nice to me and gave me advice: that's how you should decide which faction/House to join. People in more militaristic factions/Houses may prove to be unreliable bullies, the kind of players that generally end up receiving vicious backlash and end up being blacklisted. As for the location: it is a better idea to join a faction that's nearby if you choose to join a faction that's close to you because they would be able to help you.

If this was W8, I'd say stay away from H2, they are insolent wretches who are to caught up in their own glory to know a good player when they see one...
