    Hmm, I'm reluctant to ask but must do my duty. Do you have permission to use the CNN logo?

    I think Daveshack is the Tribal Faction leader as well. Ballazic is 2nd in command taking over for Shattered whilst gone, technically leading Philosophers now.

    I think the characterization of kwarriorpoet as leader falls from my support for him in the "best roleplayer" poll. I'd call that accurate, though we don't know yet if he's willing to assume the role. ;)

    The Rebellion

    The Rebellion was started circa 6:00 AM, 19th of April. Vandal Warlord posted his call on most faction threads, and then a poll to destroy the Triad. The poll is continuing, and most people have made their typical posts.

    Vandal Warlord buckeled under pressure soon after and claimed it over, until Joe Harker took up the flag. Since then, all non- triad factions except Timus have declared their support.

    I sent PMs to several members of the rebellion, and their thoughts on it.

    Why do you think the rebellion was started at this time? Do you think it could have had better timing?

    Ballazic-
    Provolution-
    What do you think the Triad is facing as it's main challenge? Do you believe they can overcome it?

    Joe Harker-

    Do you believe the Rebellion has a chance? Why?

    Joe Harker-
    NZL-

    Should the Rebellion fail what do you think should happen to the leaders of the Rebellion?

    Ballazic-

    Should the rebellion succeed, which faction will you support and Why? Do you think the Triad will be elected again?

    Ballazic-
    NZL-

    This is a good initiative Rex. The philosophers loss is the wider games gain.

    Although it has been several days since the failure of the rebellion, I think that the failure should be noticed!

    At the time of the article, I was just a leader, but not necessarily the leader of the Tribal Faction. Since the Rebellion, I have seen fit to form my own faction. I believe that the Tribal Faction is still relevant and that its members will continue to serve our community. Dave Shack is the leader of the Tribal Faction, and I couldn't see myself taking that moral authority away from him, and I know that the Tribal Faction was, is, and will continue to be an influencial faction.

    Rex, did you get my PM to your answers?

    Great article by the way, and I look forward to reading additional articles from you in the future! :greatjob:

    P.S. I am now the leader of the Arkadian Populist Regime (see sig)

    I updated Who's who
    I did get your answers, and intend on adding them soon. Things have been hectic in RL, and I haven't had time to make a real article or update this.

    Great update Vandal.

    You might want to split "Founder of the Federation of Free Sates" between me and Lord Civius though.
