At oprainfall, it’s no surprise that we’re really passionate about niche games, most especially those we had a hand in getting localized (officially or not). Perhaps the game we’re most passionate about of those original 3 is Xenoblade Chronicles. We all loved that game, and many of us consider it to be one of the very best that the Wii has to offer. Thus, to say that we’re excited about the December release of the spiritual successor, Xenoblade Chronicles X, would be an understatement. As a result, we’re planning on rolling out Xenoblade Chronicles X related content in the weeks prior to the release. This can be considered the first of said content. In Xenoblade Chronicles X, there are various unions. To recap, those can be found here. We have now devised our own Unions based on those found in the game. Take a look and ask yourself this – which Union do you belong to?
Our staff has already picked our favorite Union! Check it out HERE
Also, make sure to vote for your favorite union on the poll at the end of the page!
Oprainfall X Unions
Like the body of water it’s named for, the Rivulet Union is small, efficient and quick. These folks strike rapidly, and manage to cut to the quick for important missions. They may not be the biggest or the baddest, they make up for it with their technical skill.
The Avalanche Union does nothing by half measures. They are stubborn, committed and impossible to sway from their beliefs. They may seem chilly and distant at first, but they will warm up to those who share their frame of mind. Just don’t make the mistake of getting in their way.
The Lemurian Union is by far one of the most mysterious and wreathed in shadow. None know where they truly hail from, and it’s rumored that they practice dark arts and mysticism. However, this isn’t to say that they are evil, just misunderstood. What is most important is their faculty to get things done when nobody is paying attention.
4. Lily Pad
The Lily Pad Union is one of the least aggressive, but most vital to the health and productivity of oprainfall. They are calm and dispassionate most of the time, able to heal quarrels and mend fences. They may not be a destructive force, but they are mighty all the same.
Slow, powerful and methodical, the Waterfall Union is one not to be trifled with. These are the lore masters of oprainfall, and have a immense working knowledge of history. Many in this clan are also older and wiser, not like some upstart new Unions.
6. River Ops
River Ops members are brash, fast moving and quick thinking. They handle many specialist jobs for oprainfall, and are also the first to speak their minds. They are also brutally loyal to their fellow members, and will defend them with their lives. This upstart new Union is dismissed at your own peril.
While Lemurians are one of the more mystical Unions, they are far from the only one. They are also accompanied by the Lily Pad Union. Though they are typically calm, they can also be protective and violent, depending on their whim. Their unpredictable nature makes them very chaotic, but also incredibly useful, since they are liable to take on many disparate tasks.
By an odd coincidence, those in the Squall Union are often natural leaders and charismatic speakers. They aren’t always present, but when they show up, everybody pays attention. If you confront them, be prepared to be blown away by their ferocity and conviction.
