The Word of Blake is a splinter faction of ComStar that was created out of a conservative backlash against the removal of ComStar's mystical and religious aspects. The Word of Blake moved first to the Free Worlds League, taking ownership of the FWL'S HPG system and later conquered Terra from ComStar, establishing a small Protectorate around Terra.


40th Shadow Division

40th Shadow Division

40th Shadow Division

Unit Rating: Elite

The 40th Shadow Division is a complete mystery. Who they are, where they come from, or what their aims are is completely unknown. They do not respond to comms and do not offer any of their own. They simply fight, kill, and die for the Word of Blake. They are highly elite warriors and are equipped with seemingly the best technologies that the Blakists can muster. Beyond that, nothing is known about the force.

9th Division III-Gamma

9th Division III-Gamma

9th Division III-Gamma

Unit Rating: Regular

The 9th Division III-Gamma is a relatively new division of the Word of Blake's military, raised by Precentor Martial St. Jamais (along with the 10th Division) after his election in order to bolster the Word's standing forces somewhat. The 9th is untested but well-trained, having trained at a Castle Brian in Colorado back on Terra. They are equipped with solid gear and are effective warriors.

WoB Protectorate Militia

WoB Protectorate Militia

WoB Protectorate Militia

Unit Rating: Garrison

The Word of Blake's forces are divided into two main commands: the primary and high quality forces and the Protectorate Militia. The Militia is equipped with less good technology than the main WoB military and is often the first line of defense for the Word's holdings. However, the Militia is just as dedicated to the Word's cause as the mainline forces and fights with the same zeal.
