Well after a brief discussion amongst staff, we've decided it's simply not worth it to keep the Ryuketsu Clan as it's own independent faction since users given commanding positions in it have kept leaving. And now for all intents and purposes, the RC will be treated as a subdivision of the Jade Dragon effective immediately. Characters all have the choice to stay and serve Akar and become JD members or merely leave to pursue their own paths elsewhere. This could mean either joining a different faction (I hear Kyuuseishu's looking for people..) or just being archived. Please comment below what you'd like to do with your RC char if you own any.
if you have a ryuketsu char then that char will stay in the ryuketsu branch if they stay in the faction... however Akar is literally just going to be using ryuketsu guys as his most elite troops/assassins because a fair amount of the main JD are not suited for pure combat or assassination like RC are
