    The major factions the PCs are dealing with should probably be of about equal power in the current arena. So it's fine if one is a local thieves' guild and the other is a multiplanar network of powerful wizards - as long as the latter has only a small presence nearby.

    Another thing you could consider is nested factions - at low level the PCs deal with the local thieves guild, but as they gain level they learn that that guild is part of a national crime syndicate, then they discover it is tied to a worldwide organisation... and then find that the ultimate masters are actually extraplanar...
