The three available teams to join a squad in are indeed just those three teams, but what one your character actually COMES from is a different matter.
The Sharen Alliance is made up of FOUR clans to make a respective character from Sharen, Jie'yan, Balvhakara and Illhar'dro, well the Nals are a mercenary force, with the people in it coming from the clan itself, minor clans(The tiny little umimportant ones), or merely being a commoner with a thirst for adventure.

The three choices are just the squad sponsors; when you create your character you can claim to be from whatever clan in your character profile, but you might want to choose a clan that is at least friendly towards that squad (i.e. Balvhakara (no mana cannons though), Beldrobbaen, Illhar'dro, Jie'yen, Siyah'khorshed (Black Sun), and Vloz'ress for the Sharen Alliance squads; expatriate Kyorl'solenurn, Mimian (no wings though), Val'Sharen (like Sillice), Sullisin'rune, and Tei'kaliath characters in the Sarghress squads; and expat Jaal'darya and Tei'kaliath in the Nal'sarkoth squads). But even that's not a required, you can claim to be an expatriate from any clan, or from a minor clan, or no clan at all. Also, since that's in your character profile text, you can change it later if you change your mind, or if a squad refuses to take your character because of your "background".

The three sponsors determine what color your armor will be (Sharen blue, Sarghress brown, Nal green), and squad leader cloaks (Sharen blue, Sarghress red, Nal green); non-squad-leader cloaks are brown for weapons specialists, white for mana specialists in all squads regardless of clan. B)

Only Sarghress, Nal, Sharen, Jie'yen, Illhar'dro or Balvhakara.
No other clans available for character creation, because anything else is flavor text and won't apply in team actions. For Sharen, you must be part of Zala'ess' bloodline.

If a Sharen Alliance character chooses to be Jie'yen, Illhar'dro, or Balvhakara, is there any difference in gameplay other than your name, flavor text, and appearance (complexion, eye and hair color, etc.)? If not, then there's nothing preventing characters from being expatriates from other clans, right? I mean, even though Zala'ess won't let just anyone join the Vel'Sharen clan, there are/were expat Dutan'virs and Beldrobbaens in the Imperial Guard, so those should be part of the Sharen Alliance, right? Likewise, I can't see why expat Val'Sharens, Kyorls and Suls wouldn't be found in the Sarghress squads (my squad, the Fen Wolves, has a Dokkalfar from a surface colony). btw there's a former Tei'kaliath in a Nal'sarkoth squad, so I have to edit my previous post...

All members of the Sharen Alliance besides the Sharen get special bonuses for the clan they come from.
All Jie'yan characters get an extra boost to their hand to hand combat from their training.\
Balvs, get an extra boost to their mana reserve from their use of Heavy armour training, which has left them with an increased mana pool to draw from, although Heavy Armour is unavailable.
Illhar'dro are the only clan capable to using Sound Sorcery, as it's a skill unique to them.
The Sharen squads themselves are limited in the characters able to join, depending on clan. The Squad leader is ALWAYS a Sharen Female with any respective Sharen members needing to be either the Leader's protector twin, or a male Sharen(I.E. Unimportant squishy expendable man flesh) . There can only be one member in a squad from both Jie'yan and Balv, well there can be a few Illhar'dro, just because they are larger and have a bigger part to play then the other two.

And as to having characters from other clans... Back stories don't matter in Relic Hunters, so having them come from another clan makes no real difference. Actual ingame interactions between characters are small, typically just some dialogue once and awhile for the sake of keeping things going, so making a character outside the bounds would only mean much if you plan to do some roleplaying in the forums.

Like disestablish said, Sharen alliance can only be those clans because they get bonuses. Although, Illhar'dro still can't use spellsong, but they can be dark elves (Sargh is the only other eligible clan)

Sargh and Nal are made of mercenaries, so that's why rules are lenient for them. It doesn't matter, it doesn't get taken into consideration. All that matters is clan allegiance and vital stats, such as race.

I see, thanks for clarifying, Dalvy.

There are benefits for the Sarg and Nals of course, but Sharen have MOTHER HUGGING DRAGONS, so they win automatically by default forever.

The Sarghress have experience and a nice head start equipment-wise. Some of us even have a MOTHER HUGGING DRAGON HEAD for a battle trophy.

Speaking of... this is reposted from the Relic Hunter Forum to inform everyone that there will soon be not one, but TWO open Sarghress slots in the has-been-there-since-the-beginning Akapasu squad. One we lost a while ago and simply haven't attempted to recruit more players, the other is me, who is going to have to retire for RL reasons.

Writer wrote:Hello everyone!

I play Ma'lessi, current squad leader of the Akapasu relic hunting squad. For a while now, I've been struggling with a RL workload that takes away time from being an effective and update-punctual squad leader and this situation is not going to end any time soon. It has in the past, and more frequently of late, forced me to make sub-par squad actions to meet the vote deadlines. We've also been less one player for a while, something I haven't found the time or motivation to remedy by asking around for a new recruit. All in all, being a part of the game has started becoming more chore than entertainment, especially as I hardly ever find the time to read all the other squads' action, which was always a big draw for me.

Before things get any worse, I wish therefore to retire from Relic Hunters and open up the spot for a new squad leader and member, and I do so now at the end of the current adventure, so that any new players can get in at the start of the next one. In order to make the transition seamless, I'm creating this thread to point to the soon-to-be TWO open spots in the Akapasu roster, freely available for filling by anyone who wants to play badass wolf-riding merc-soldiers going on dangerous mission and fantastic treasure hunts. I don't see why you wouldn't be excited to be a part of that, to be honest.

While, obviously, first shot at being the next squad leader should go to the remaining three players, Sorin, Jak'sura and Kaheti, this would be the perfect time for anyone wishing to join a well-established, long-running squad to apply for membership, and if you have a surplus of motivation and dedication, perhaps you can convince the present players that you are the best person for the squad leader job!

To Sorin, Jak and Kaheti, I say this: thank you for playing and for being patient and supportive of me after the last few weeks' of tiny and delayed actions. If you do want (or don't want) to be the next squad leader, just post so here so we can transfer the role. If more than one of you want the job, talk among yourselves about who would be best in-thread or by PMs. Should none of you want to carry on as squad leader, keep eyes on the thread, as someone might show up who would be happy to step into the role and carry on the legacy of Akapasu squad!

To the next squad-leader, I promise to make an effort to update the squad's current equipment page and post it here before I retire at the end of the present adventure. Akapasu squad has been a fixture in Relic Hunter since its inception and we have a lot of hard-earned treasures, trinkets and tools in our packs.

Should none of the current players want the squad leader position and should nobody apply, Akapasu squad will most likely be disbanded. C'est la vie, in that case, and thanks for all the fish. (Although special thanks go, regardless of how things go, to the GMs of Relic Hunter and Donny, for trucking on for all these years and hopefully for many more.)

That's all for now. Keep on truckin', everyone.

Sorry to see Ma'lessi go...and the Akapasu were one of the first squads to be named, on January 10, 2010 in Chapter 3 of Campaign II (along with the Sarghress Cloud Piercers and the Nal'sarkoth Crossroads squads), beating out the Campaign I squads by four days. I suppose the Akapasu retracting that bridge over the river chasm started some kind of rivalry with the Crossroads, heh. Later the two Campaigns were merged into one, but Akapasu and other pioneering squads have almost six continuous years of unit history under their belts! If you'd like to play Relic Hunters as a Sarghress and join the famous Highland Raiders, the Akapasu squad is a great opportunity! :)

Stormfront? Lessee here...oh, here you are, debuted on Chapter 13 page 8 on 14 August 2014, our newest squad, right? 8P

Prospective new player, you could ride into battle on fleet-footed, furry wolves as a Sarghress...or I can offer you this topical cream for the scale butt you'll suffer riding those dragons as a Sharen *lol*
Those Lindir are so adorable though! :3

Sorry to see you go, Ma'lessi and Akapasu have been there since the beginning of RH 2.0, just like my own character Tur'geis and his squad the Marauders. It may not be the same, especially with Akapasu's giant monster slaying antics (knowing the squad members, I'm sure the Marauders will make up for it!) Good luck in your future endeavors and hopefully we'll see Ma'lessi again soon in RH!

And yes, dire wolves make fantastic mounts. Fast, good at killing, and you can use the corpses of the slain as food for 'em.

I'm sorry to go too, but RL's been heaping it on lately, and I don't feel I'm the best squad leader for the job anymore, or even capable of paying enough attention to be a mere member. It's even more of a shame if this stands to disband the squad, which may happen now that Kaheti, another member, has wordlessly dropped off the grid, possibly in response to me stepping down... but there is still time to apply before the start of the next mission!

Really, I imagine there's two-three weeks left before the next mission begins, so apply at will, Sarghress initiates! Akapasu squad needs you!

Heck, if you want, I'll take the time to offer advice on "wot kind of character you ought be makin'" for the squad, and some squad leader/relic hunter general advice. Years of doing this stuff has kind of ingrained a few things in me. Frankly, it's going to be kind of weird not making regular visits to the site and having late-night brainstorming sessions for what to do next.
