I have noticed that have is no list of the various factions that are involved in VBCW so to help both new players and older ones alike here is a list of them. This is not a definitive list but its one to help players out and it has be taken from Solway's Newspaper, Albion in Peril.

THE FACTIONS

The main players or factions are

The Edwardian Royalists
Supporting King Edward VIII
The Reactionaries
Mainly Far Right organisations, like The British Union of Fascists,the British Fascisti, English Array, who are supporting Edward to further their own agenda.
The Anglican League
'Middle England' at war, traditional liberals or conservatives who find themselves unable to support the King and his Prime Minister
The Peoples' Armies
Socialist groups, like The People's Assault Colums, Trade Unions, CPGB, seeking revolution rather than just reform of the monarchy and government
The Scottish Republic
Angered by the imposition of paramilitaries and the activities of the King's Prime Minister, Scotland succeds from the union and declares a Republic
The Albertines
The democratic parliament in exile, elect Prince Albert Lord protector and invite him to return from self imposed exile in Canada and take all necessary means to restore order
The Liverpool Free State
Faced with troops trying to break strikes in the City, the Mayor declares Liverpool an independent, socialist free state
The Yorkist Front
The City of York declares its support not for the King but his brother Prince Albert
The Somerset Freedom
Fighters based in North Somerset this group fights the Tithe tax and the Reactionary forces supporting the King
Nationalist Independence Groups
In Wales and Cornwall groups are fighting for independence of the King's government
The Red Clydesiders
Radical Socialist groups in Glasgow aiming to bring about a socialist revolutionary government
The Jacobites
Angered by the failures of the Scottish Republic this group of mainly conservative highland landlords have invited Prince Ruprecht of Bavaria, last claimant to the Stuart line to raise a revolt
The League of St Andrew
The pro unionist party in Scotland seeking an alliance with Prince Albert

I hope this helps and I know that there are other factions waiting such as the Catholic Conclave and Joshua Force of General Wynd-Gaitor but it should help I think.

Depends on definitions, his is the narrative im working with
Parliament divided in original source book, the rump that turned up to rubber stamp mosley's decrees and those that couldn't go along with that which effectively go 'into exile' The shadow or exiled parliament first meets at Canterbury but feels the influence of the archbishop is too great and relocates to Winchester (prob late summer 38), ancient capital of England, after the disaster for the Anglicans in the Severn Valley campaign (sept 38) the parliament fears it needs a more robust champion and offers Albert the job of Lord Protector, following on from calls by the Yorkist Front, who yes indeed did make the first approaches to Albert

While these are the major ones the list and map im giving out at the mo has 55 factions gleaned from many sources- the joy of it!

There is one other potential faction that I haven't seen considered:

Several weeks ago, I saw an entertaining video on YouTube which contended that the British throne has had the wrong occupant warming the royal seat since Henry VI, and that the proper modern day heir to the throne is none other than a Plantagenet (the elder scion of said family reputedly gambled away the family's considerable fortune at the race track -including one particularly spectacular multi-million Lb. loss on a single bet - in the 30's and died soon thereafter). This heir to the family misfortunes several decades ago chucked his newly inherited, albeit impoverished seat in the House of Lords as a young man, emigrated to Australia to recoup, and is currently living in New South Wales with his large, happily non-dysfuctional family, without a scintilla of regret about his decision.

So...as long as a distantly related, Stuart-descended Bavarian claimant to the Scottish throne is being considered under VBCW auspices, why not also a Plantagenet faction in the south? This genre is all about alternate realities, and a 20th century Plantagenet contender is about as alternative as one can get, and might just add an extra bit of fun to the mix besides.

Any thoughts, speculations or inclinations in this direction?

It would certainly go with the "War of the Roses with tanks" approach that some people have adopted. I suppose the idea of a "real" English King (instead of all those Germans) would appeal to a certain sort of right-wing (but probably not fascist) English nationalist.

Apart from Cromwell, of course; as English as crumpets, George Formby and best bitter.

And he had Norse blood anyway! I suspect it's been a case of "b****y furriners" since long before the Henge was built!!

Well, there's already a Yorkist Front, so it would seem that the umbrella organization for the new faction might be the Lancastrian Restoration League (LRL, Restorationists, Larlies)?
