This particular history lesson is about the uprising. Planning for the actually event began 10 years prior to execution A small group of around 400 radicals decided that they had enough of the Caldorean Empire calling the shots. The rebels started making weapon caches and stocking them. By the end of the first year of preparation the rebels' number grew to over 850. the next 3 years focused on selling the idea of revolution to likely contributors. Selling the idea was not an easy task. No one has challenged the Empire's rule in 600 years and lived.
At the end of the 4th year the rebel's number had surpassed 1500. considering that the population of the Island was well over 6,000,000 people, their recruitment was not a big achievement. By year 6, however, a colonel in the army caught wind of the rebel's plans. Good for them the colonel had a deep hatred of the throne. He managed to convince his division to aid the cause, yet no one figured out how he did it. As year 8 rolled in they had all the supplies and manpower needed to at least pin prick the empire. The second phase of their operation was to select key targets to neutralize. Their were six major locations the rebels needed to take. they were the Central Nexus tower, which controlled the entire communications network. The defense office, which obviously controls the defense net. The metro-police administration building, which housed the corrupt military police force. The command and Control center, which controlled the drones that patrolled the sky above the entire metropolitan area. The Imperial armory, for obvious reasons. And lastly, the Imperial Palace.
On the morning of the attack, Six groups waited outside their designated targets. They waited almost 6 hours from 11:00 P.M. to 5:00 A.M. They waited for the signal to launch the attack. The signal would be the power plant exploding. When it did and 5:09 A.M., the revolutionaries began the assault. within the first hour the 2,000 rebels seized five of the six targets without firing a single shot. The sixth target was the palace. When the rebel strike team approached, they were fired on by the Imperial guards. The fire-fight alerted the Emperor who then called for the army to move into the city. Even though the rebels controlled communications, the palace had limited comm capabilities. 30 minutes later, Imperial troops marched into the city. Rebel forces had no choice, and started shooting at them, and well over 15,000 citizens joined the uprising.. The battle had begun. After 6 days of shooting, the rebels took over the palace. However the emperor and his cabinet had escaped. 2 other major islands in the chain decided to take advantage of the state of chaos and broke away from the empire. The revolt was over, and the war began.
