Junction threads allow two or more Major Factions participating to gain a hex.

  • At any point, two or more Major Factions may acquire an adjacent SWRP Chaos Map hex each by completing a Junction thread, posting to the Map Update thread, and receiving Staff approval. These factions need not be adjacent on the map to create a Junction.
  • A Junction counts as a Player Vs Environment (PvE) thread.
  • A Junction thread’s title must include the name(s) or acronym(s) of the Major Factions involved as well as the hexes chosen.
  • Hexes chosen to be gained by completed Junction threads must be adjacent to the respective Major Faction(s)' influence cloud.
  • A hex lost as the result of an Invasion may not be gained by a Junction thread for 30 days after the announcement of the Invasion result.


Once a Major Faction has posted a completed Junction thread to the Map Update thread, an Admin will assign an RPJ to judge whether the thread meets the following criteria. The RPJ will sign the ‘Approval’ field in the Map Update template, or will contact the submitter if further work is needed.

  • STORY - Does the Junction thread have a story (or group of stories) that makes sense and that comes to a reasonable conclusion?
  • REPRESENTATION - How well is the Faction represented in the Junction thread? Factions may be denied hexes for poor performance.
  • EFFORT - How much effort has the Faction put into the thread? As a general guideline, 30 average posts per faction is an acceptable effort. A lower number of posts may be acceptable if clear effort has resulted in solid stories that reach a natural conclusion. Spammed posts with minimal effort will count against the Faction.

Each faction must post their own application in the Map Update thread upon conclusion of their monthly Junction thread, ie one Junction thread can have two or more posts in the Map Update thread.
