It surely was a wake up call.
I see it as a motivational speach made by Vandal in Ice2k4's pub that sparked a fire of sorts as the men and women there listened to someone who had the courage to voice a sentiment that echoed in their own souls. The people in the pub began yelling and shouting and then agreeing to much of what Vandal had to say, and in no time flat, a riot spilled out of the pub and into the streets. Soon, neighbors were collecting neighbors throughout Arete. The Triad leadership barely had time to form up, thanks to a couple loyal members of the Triad who were witnesses to the event in the Pub. By late in the next morning, a huge crowd had gathered outside of Arete's Palace, clammering for change and shouting of rebellion!
Provo left the Palace to greet the people...to stall them while Shattered, NZL, Aluminum Knight and many of the Triad loyalists met to try and answer the concerns of the people. A few people left the mob to approach Provo. Vandal and Joe Harker were the most outspoken and Joe Harker became the leader, supported by several outspoken critics and respected Veterans.
Inside, Shattered stepped down from his leadership role in the Phylosopher's faction, and Ballazic took the lead. Many in the Triad saw the wisdom in immediately answering some of the chief charges, and at least opening themselves up to working through issues that would need some additional planning.
The Triad's response was quick, and a letter was given to Provo, who gave it to Joe Harker and the other leaders of the rebellion.
The Triad agreed to a new ellection on May 5th, and they agreed to immediate change their practices with regard to turn session planning, and to be more open and communicative to the people.
Although Rebellion had not totally replaced the leadership of Arete, it had changed much and reinvigurated the masses. The first government of Arete had not failed, but it was seriously damaged, but in the process it did show allot of adaptability and the people still won on many accounts.
Vandal Warlord's name is now carved in stone on the front steps of the Aretan Palace. "We will either find a way, or make one! Vandal Warlord circa 2400BC." As the first leader of a rebellion, he found a way to get change happening.
(That's my interpretation anyway more of a massive riot that almost broke into a bloody coup.)
Wow! There is an RP version of the Rebellion on the forum, The first rebellion of Arete.
kwp confirms his top roleplay award win good job!
Indeed the Triad Leaders halted their decadent parties [they were fun though], divided some of the fatty pork and fish food among the masses and ordered the Yassan and Sahashuna women of pleasure to put their clothes back on.
...Because The Consulate had work to do.
Nice writing Kwarriorpoet. Keep it up.
But 48 people in a poll. That's hilarious. Reminds me of the Chieftess DGs, where they would just keep pouring people in till they won. Too much.
