Default Septs

Somewhat inspired by a Space Marine topic, what sept do the players on Tau Online have?
None of them are better in gameplay terms, so if you want you can post why you picked that particular sept.
Can't remember this being done before.

Personally, I played Sa'cea because I sorta stole its colour scheme and liked the fluff about it, but have now moved to a Farsight Enclave force, with most of its members based from Sa'cea.

I play N'Dras.
Mostly so I can do some thinking, and try for the whole 'redemption' angle on the Tau.
(See my stuff in the Tale of Nine Gamers for more detail )

My cadre is basically a subset of the Farsight Enclaves, forced to resort to strange tactics and stranger allies to survive the frontier. That has shaped the force organization and the play-style of my cadre. Maybe I should do a write up someday, though I might then show all of TO why my reputation seems to be running on crack. :P

Initially my cadre was based on Dal'yth with Gue'vesa from Ksi'm'yesn since it was the most non-tau cadre ever. But with the 5th ed. rulebook and lack of gue'vesa and IA kroot in question of legality this will likely change.

My army, the Tio've Bork'an Mon'fris, was originally created as an escort force for a Fio caste research expedition (out of Bork'an) to an ice world. After the planet was saved from a Tyranid splinter fleet, the contingent was found to be composed of unusually exceptional warriors, who have found themselves to be constant demand across the empire. As the white (or light blue) uniforms are quite liked by the army's creator, a Bork'an sept was the perfect choice. (And the more intelligent soldiers are come from Bork'an, it is mentioned in the codex! ;D)
