NEW MONARCHY

A faction is a group that Guardians can join and earn reputation with. Most factions are based within the Last City at the Tower. Completing an activity for a faction allows Guardians to increase their rank with them and earn rewards.

There are three factions that form the City’s government, the Consensus, and seek champions among the Guardians to represent them in the Crucible. Guardians may pledge themselves to a faction for a fee of 2500 Glimmer, in doing so they can earn faction-specific rewards, such as Armor, Weapons, Emblems, Shaders and Ships. Guardians are permitted to change their allegiance to a faction, but can only do so once per week, and must pay the fee each time. When a player reaches Reputation level 25 within their faction, they’ll unlock a faction quest that rewards an Exotic Class Item that increases reputation gains with that faction. This Exotic Class item has the ability to be equipped with one other Exotic piece of armor.

Earn New Monarchy Reputation by trading in materials such as:

  • Mote of Light (x5) [Yields 100 Rep]
  • Weapon Parts (x25) [Yields 75 Rep]
  • Armor Materials (x25) [Yields 50 Rep]
  • Special Ammo Synthesis (x4) [Yields 25 Rep]
  • Heavy Ammo Synthesis (x1) [Yields 25 Rep]

The following looks a the New Monarchy.

New Monarchy

In the earliest days of the Last City, various factions vied for the hearts and minds of the masses. The struggle because so strong that an ensuing war developed between the, The following conflicts, known as the Faction Wars, brought the City to its knees. A gathering of Guardians fought to end the conflict and a new peace brought a new order: the City Consensus and the Speaker ruled together, and the surviving great factions worked through civil channels to pursue their agendas.

The New Monarchy was one of these factions. Led by a group called the Inner Circle, members are known for their military prowess as well as their secrecy. They believe they must always be ready for the impending war with the Darkness. In their opinion, preparing for that confrontation should be the sole, driving purpose of the Last City and the Guardians. They are also deeply concerned with fate, and whether or not it is possible to alter history altogether.

The New Monarchy rose from the ashes of the Faction Wars with a simple, inclusive guiding tenet: “Together we will rise.”

Leery of the fragile state of the City’s politics, the New Monarchy maintains a watchful eye on the Speaker, the Consensus, and the Vanguard, seeking the leadership that will properly reign over the City and return our civilization to its Golden Age splendor. If that leadership cannot be found, then it must be created.

Executor Hideo

Hideo is one of New Monarchy’s Executors, a high-ranking position with some form of legal authority. Before joining New Monarchy, he was a Plasteel manufacturer who made generous donations to the people of the City. He is considered an upstanding citizen and was once known for his lavish gifts to children and the elderly. Since he moved from plasteel manufacturing to the New Monarchy, he has been less forthcoming about his business and less free with his funds. Due to his position and time in the faction he has built significant connections throughout the city, including to the royal family.

Executor Hideo has a dim view of his faction’s rivals, calling Dead Orbit spineless and Future War Cult “all secrets and nonsense”. He also isn’t pleased with the Speaker’s perceived inaction or Zavala’s unwillingness to join him. Instead, he puts his faith in the City and the possibility of returning to the Golden Age. But as one of the public faces of the Monarchy, he speaks with genuine passion and conviction about the possibilities of a united future.

“Hope will be born from the collective triumphs of the king in us all.”
