This question already has an answer here:
I'm looking for a book where outcasts from Earth settle on some planet and eventually form seven or so guilds/families/kingdoms/nations. Each nation was known for some special trait. One nation could regenerate almost any wound. Another nation was of spies and could go invisible (?). One nation controlled time to an extent... etc. The name of the book was something like 'outcast' but not that word, only a similar word.
