THETA
DERIVED FROM LAMBDA'S HUMANITARIAN EFFORTS
SET DOWN WEAPONRY
TAKE TO TEACHING ANOTHER
TAKE TO HEALING ANOTHER
THESE ARE THE ACTIONS OF THETA

Theta is an unofficial branch of Lambda that aims to supplement their medical and scientific activities around the world. They are supplied by Lambda supply runners with medicine, technology, research equipment, and more. Their influence has spread all across most of Western Europe as a group that is known for their kind deeds to those seen as criminal to the Combine's cause. Small laboratories have sprung up everywhere they seem to be found, clinics as well.

Theta is made up purely of scientists and medical personnel, delegating combative purposes to groups that desire to fight the Combine head-on. They will commonly contract these groups to act as on-site security, depending on the area. The only segment of Theta that actively participates in combat are field medics that assist the contracted group in combat against the Combine, and never against other resistance cells.

Theta's history remains cloudy, some noting their first appearances weeks after Lambda's first contact, and some even months after- sources remain unclear. Various technological improvements have come from the minds at Theta, as well as agricultural. Theta has been known to source food from the soil such as potatos, watermelons, tomatos, apples, corn, and much more. While these farms are much further out, and not close to cities in fear of their destruction by the Combine, supply runners aim to try and get these foods to as much resistance cells as possible as an act of kindness.

The clinics that Theta sets up aim to be open for as long as possible, never knowing when an injured refugee or resistance fighter could be in need of their services. The clinics also uphold a standard of cleanliness and professionality- with doctors donning labcoats, and field medics commonly showing their status with a red cross somewhere on their uniform, be it an armband or pin, or even helmet.

Research tends to be Theta's main focus, however, with stolen Combine technology being one of their specialties. Repurposed batteries, scanner parts, locks, and even some consoles gathered from purged Civil Protection outposts have been put to use elsewhere. Advances in medicine from things such as Antlion Grubs, medical gel, and other rudimentary items have also surfaced. Prosthetics have also been a topic commonly delved into, given that the survivors of some of the Combine's actions have had to sacrifice a limb or two to get out of it alive.

Various laboratories and clinics have directors to head their work effort, reporting their findings to Lambda when possible through a computer network or through letter, depending on the area- they try to remain covert.

A noteworthy group has been on the move from a part of Austria for the better part of a couple months. Their position has been tracked down to being near the coast of Lake Geneva, aiming to set up a point within the loyalist stronghold of City Twenty-Four.

Color of borders should be whatever it is for rebels, but if it's a custom color, please make it green.

Another group has set up around thirty miles out of Chernobyl, aiming to act as a communications point to Black Mesa East, as well as the headquarters of Theta as a whole.

The Psi logo is just placeholder, I am too lazy to remake a Theta one. The color instead of a light blue is now a dark green.

On the more serious note other than what's above... fuck sake, Rusty ... I would imagine that Psi is effectively an addition onto the resistance itself other than just an off-shoot. If so, could you provide any additions such as a relations list of the other factions? It would help catch a better idea of how they would interact when the time comes.

Also this seems a rather reasonable submission.

Thanks.

This is all fine and dandy but i dont really see any weaknesses in this faction. Even though they have several major strengths, such as being able to reverse engineer Combine tech, having the support of a large Resistance faction and being completly allied to the Vorts, ontop of all this they already have a large influence area.

They have zero means to defend themselves without the help of other groups, if the Combine come and they're not allied with any groups on the server, they're getting steamrolled and fucked.
Well good thing they are allied with the Vorts which you are making them sound like they can take on everything. Also an offshoot of Lambda so there is that too.

on top of this, they can be extremely easy to trust newcomers just out of the kindness of their hearts. while nothing has happened, yet, (or else they might not be here), there could come a point they trust someone or something and it comes over and completely fucks themselves.

communication tends to be broken up depending on the area as well. if networking is good, they tend to use computers, however in shitty areas they have to use couriers which can take days to reach the recipient

science and medical groups, and passive groups don't tend to have too many flaws minus the obvious failure to protect oneself against threats

Seems good, I would say this can be added in now that you have defined group relations and its weaknesses. Will wait for Imperator RAD-X to respond again
