I could use some help here. I have run into many different factions from my limited time playing the game. I belong to the Order of Socrates, I think? Anyway,what, in your opinion is the best faction, and what are they based off of in real life?

For example, La Cosa Nostra was a real mafia at one point in time. It was Italian and its name meant "The Little House".

I'm guessing that the Dies de Arcanum Brotherhood is the Opus Dei,but I'm just guessing. What are your ideas?

The literal translation of La Cosa Nostra is "This Thing of Ours" it is loosely translated to "Our Thing" I did research on it years ago and am still intrigued by the Mafia.

For years, everyone that was a part of any Sicilian crime family, denied the existense of La Cosa Nostra. They had secret rites to "make" a man in the organization.

The Italian/Sicilian language is similiar but there is dialect that comes into play.

I know this as my Mom is Sicilian and Dad is Italian. There is a bigger difference than one might think

I have answers!!


The Triad, also known in china as "the black society," is an all-encompassing term for criminal organizations/underground society. It still exists, all over the globe, today.
