** The Firewall's decentralized and compartmentalized nature can lead many to conflicts between different Servers (Super-cells), made worse by the fact that Firewall was founded by the various anti-x-threat agencies[=/=]organizations with different ideas on how to combat said x-threats, from which came five major ideological factions:
*** The Backups, who believe that the Second Fall is not only possible, but is inevitable and cannot be prevented, so they try to make sure that Transhumanity can survive it by establishing more exo-colonies and building Arcships. Everybody else think that they leech resources from the more immediate concerns.
*** The Conservatives, who believe that the only appropriate response to anything that is a potential x-threat to transhumanity is to destroy it, and that includes any kind of AI, including the [=AGIs=]. Many view them as overly paranoid, xenophobic and racist, but they have the most means to supply and finance the Firewall agents, giving them substantial influence. Used to be the dominant factions early after the Fall, but an incident where the trigger-happy agents destroyed the ship with the thousands of infugees on board because the captain happened to be an AGI kicked them out of the defacto leadership, which was snatched by...
*** The Pragmatists, who believe that you need fire to fight fire, and that includes TITAN Tech. They are also in favor of not killing the Asyncs, [=AGIs=] and the Uplifts, which granted them the reputation of inclusiveness. Some, mainly the Conservatives, believe that they are playing with things that should be left alone.
*** The Structuralists, who believe that the ad-hoc, decentralized nature of Firewall hinders it more that it helps, and they push for more established, structured hierarchy in order to more efficiently respond to x-threats. They are also believe that Firewall should go public and work with the government agencies. Their opponents think that this will result in Firewall being subverted by the enemies.
*** The Mavericks, who are comprised of MilitaryMaverick and CowboyCop types who believe in the Firewall cause but don't like the Firewall rules and regulations.

governments or other competing powers.
*** The Mavericks, who are comprised of MilitaryMaverick and CowboyCop types who believe in the Firewall Firewall's cause but don't like the strict regulations and procedures that Firewall rules operates with. Due to Firewall being decentralized, servers that predominantly trend Maverick have a reputation for abandoning all but the most basic operational structures and regulations.for being at risk of leaving Firewall entirely. The rest of the factions consider the Mavericks to be more of a problem than a legitimate faction, and want to keep them limited so they won't expose the organization as a whole.

Added DiffLines:

* MindRape: There's a lot more of this than just the Exsurgent Virus. Some exhumans call themselves "soul-eaters" - they rip bits out of other people's egos and graft those pieces onto their own. And ''anyone'' can, with enough resources and sufficiently few scruples, pop someone's ego in a simulation with YearInsideHourOutside and torture them for as long as they please.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: As much 'magic' as it can be. The Nine Lives cartel is headed by a self-styled voodoo priest who claims he's got the loa (spirits, which are crucial in voodoo) to his whim through his collection of egos. An encrypted Firewall message asks if it's just [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions religious nonsense]], as many transhumans are quick to dismiss it as, or if the cartel leader actually managed to whip up a hive mind, TITAN tech or not.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: As with the above, the pre-generated characters from the Jovian faction are portrayed sympathetically - they're not going to rely on the tech that destroyed Earth unless it's the last resort, they're not going to be like everyone else in the 'verse and pretend what comes back after resleeving is still them, they're not going to take what they feel is the easy route in anything by loading up on programs that screw with your mind instead of hard training, and they're ''certainly'' not luddites scared of fire - not using someone's tech isn't the same as not ''knowing''.

Added DiffLines:

* CastFromSanity: In the TabletopGame/{{Fate}} conversion asyncs can boost their [[PsychicPowers psi-sleights]] by risking mental stress, which can lead to mental disorders as consequences. In contrast to the original EP rules, where asyncs risk their [[CastFromHitPoints hit points]] and go permanently insane in the process of gaining their [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity powers]].
