Continents has a factions/clans system. There are two factions on Continents, the Lon and the Ott who are continually at battle with one another. A clan is a part of either the Lon or the Ott. Once someone reaches max. mortal level they may apply for the position of Clan Leader and if successful may start a new clan. As the clan grows and prospers they may progress to Clan Chief, Castle Captain, and perhaps even City Commander. Requirements for joining a clan or becoming one of the mortal leaders is determined by each Clan Master.
