If you're referring to 3rd offensive, I have been reading bits and pieces in my spare time at home this last week. A friend leant me his copy. I got on the forums hoping to have some questions answered and gain new perspectives, not be idly called an idiot by a net troll. On the other hand, if you're referring to the Human sphere book, It's been a while since I looked at it, but I have glanced through and read large parts of it. ALEPH didn't seem to be linked to any one government. However, I have no reading material expressly on ALEPH as a faction from a roleplay perspective. I am after all, an emergent player who has only begun delving into the setting.
