Acta Veritas is arguably the most noble of rebel groups in Falcon’s Reach. It is headed by Anton Lutece, the leader of the Scientific Society of Braile. Compromised of the upper and middle class, they have anonymously passed flyers, posted petitions, held peaceful protests, called meetings and expressed their struggle through various other forms of media so far, resolving to have a rebellion with as little violence as possible. All members wear a peridot-studded ring. They are based in the center of Braile.
In contrast, the Syndicate may be the most secretive of them all. It is headed by Micah Cantel ("the Fox") and his partner-in-crime Bishop ("the Rabbit"). All members are indicated their own unique animal masks, usually of the color white. They are based in the east of Lynne. At the request of Fableknot, please do not create a character from this group without her permission.
Due to their similar color schemes and intellectual traits, Wood's Men is rumored (but only rumored) to have split from Acta Veritas. Perhaps a disagreement in methods had caused this, seeing that Wood's Men had been behind the train station kidnappings in the beginning of the revolution. All members wear a green scarf on their person, and they are headed by Hiram Wood.
The arrogant, brazen run-of-the-mill kind. They believe if you're not with them, you're against them. They are blinded by their hatred of nobility and the romance of their cause, thinking little of the negative consequences of their actions. Their plan, like the others, is to overthrow the King, yet they don't have a plan after. All members have some form of purple on their person.
A band of outlaws that claim to fight for the good of the country but in reality, use the people's fears and chaotic times as an opportunity to seize towns and rule their own little kingdom. The Revolutionary Front has recently declared to have had a takeover of their group. Their camps, based in the northwest of Lucan, are waved with red.
Made up of those who were once part of Falcon's Reach's military, the National Revolutionary Front has an advantage over the rest of the rebels. They are better trained, as well as obviously being more familiar with the King and his army's tactics. Like the Armed Forces of Lucan and Wood's Men, it is a small group, based to the north of Fairhaven and headed by Aveline Rochester. All members have some form of blue on their person.
An explosion by renegade Grail-El military personnel shuts down a railroad line that cuts across the four provinces. A rebel group known as Wood's Men hold the survivors hostage in an abandoned theater. The United People's Army launches a massive attack on the city afterwards, recruiting the hostages into their ranks. Soldiers from Falcon's Reach, with assistance from Grail-El, arrive by airship to combat them.
A meeting with the Rojyan ambassador, the Grail ambassador, the King and his advisers is held in the castle. The King, in response to the chaos, initiates a heavy restriction on travel. Outside, there are riots against foreigners that quickly gets out of hand.
Parliament has turned against the royal family, sanctioning the Czarina's supporters, including Nochnyye and Vallakian immigrants, in Rojya's cities. A squad of defected soldiers break in the castle, and the Czarina is assassinated. Her guards somehow manage to escape.
The elusive criminal called the Doctor strikes, leaving the city in a misty cloud of ruins, while the renegade Grail-El military personnel assists with explosions. The United People's Army sets up camp at an old mill, while Wood's Men reluctantly takes refuge with them. Outside of the city, the renegade Grail-El military personnel blow up the bridge leading into Snowview, killing a large number of government soldiers.
The Grail ambassador strikes a deal with the King: supplies in exchange for gold. The shipments will arrive in five days through several airships.
The entirety of Wood's Men and the United People's Army converge in the city. A portion of the two groups is sent south for supplies.
Tensions rise between the King and the Grail ambassader after the latter reads the following order from the council: All Reacher colonies in the Wastes that show unrest will be seized five days from now, at midnight, unless they no longer cause a threat to the stability of Grail colonies.
A bomb is planted at a nearby dam by the renegade Grail-El military personnel. It detonates, sending a torrent of water across the countryside. Shockwaves can be felt all the way to Braile.
The Czarina's guards crash on the outskirts of town, before they are found by the supply group. Acta Veritas comes to rescue the supply group from the flood, desiring to bring them to a secret hideout.Nearby, the renegade Grail-El military personnel have issued a broadcast toward Hydris, under the guise of the United People's Army, demanding "the immediate abdication of the King, and that he and all members of the nobility to present themselves so they can be judged for their crimes against the people of Falcon's Reach."
The United People's Army travel to Braile to join the supply group.
Acta Veritas and the supply group arrive at an underground network full of rebels. However, the Syndicate and the National Revolutionary Front are doubtful of their motives. They are held prisoner for a couple hours, while their story is verified, before they are finally released.
The rest of the United People's Army arrives from Snowview. All rebel forces converge at the hideout, hoping to combine into a single entity after so many months of planning. The ceremony is performed through a bond with blood between the representatives. Afterwards, they decide to address the mysterious force that has been interfering in the rebellion, before they make the decision to storm the capitol.War hero Dimitry Popov reveals that the mysterious force is made up of ex-Grail-El military, now mercenaries-for-hire, and he used to work alongside them. He attempts to modify a radio so that they could possibly convince the renegade Grail-El military personnel to stand down. Later that night, the representatives manage to figure out who hired the mercenaries: A powerful black market dealer hoping to fan the flames of the rebellion, so that he can continue to secretly give resources to the king to line his own pockets.Meanwhile, the leader of Acta Veritas, Anton Lutece, brainstorms a couple plans for when the rebels will eventually attack Hydris. He asks for volunteers to search for some people who went missing in Goldedge some time prior, and a scientist named Danor Arkaitz offers to lend her research to the rebellion, which would be to reanimate corpses by making them Shade Hosts.Dimitry also announces the completion of the radio. He supports a plan to head out with the team heading to Goldedge and drop himself off at the halfway point. After an argument among the representatives on who should accompany him, Anton volunteers himself. The leaders of the Syndicate and the Armed Forces—the Fox and Aveline Rochester, respectively—chose to stay behind.
It's morning in the underground hideout, and the rebels are ready to head out.
