The Summer Revolution


quote:

The events of 1513 following The Disaster of Avendel would come to be known as the Summer Revolution. Some scholars (Richeling; Aldbane, Seris et al; and Tarsus & Philnus) suggest that this  is unhelpful reductionism. They argue that the  triggers and undercurrents which precipitated change extend much further back than even the disaster  and it's effects,  and that the repercussions would extend for years to come. This argument has merit, especially given the current and important trend towards more holistic historiography  within the scholastic synod.

However as a confluence of events the summer of that year was perhaps one of the most defining andimportant moments in the history of what was then called The Empire of Andrune....

Re: The Summer Revolution


quote:

In the week following the Disaster there are many stories of heroic acts, charitable acts and dangerous words.

The social capital Darith bought himself would later be used in the Guild Crisis. Some of the Watch's new Deputies acquitted themselves well, Snaga, Sabella, Skald and Rosebeard all played a vital role (See the Chapters 'The Watch' and 'Breadpudding Plaza')

Even the tragic tale of Calisto takes a heroic turn during these days.

For Vera Smith's role see the prelude to the chapter 'The Source' or refer to 'Post Avendelian Settlements' in the index.

On the whole Outlanders played a vital and visible role in the first days following the Disaster.

What is less clear is the misinformation and rumour spread at that time.

There is much debate and little evidence to say whether there were citizens actively sowing discontent.

Perhaps through the efforts of a courageous many any immediate hostility was averted. And yet like a farmer ploughs over his field to lay the seed, so was Avendel turned over and fertile soil.

The final element to set things in motion was the arrival of the refugees from New Rivenmaur. Had there not been efforts to maintain foods supplies and begin reconstruction the fall of New Rivenmaur would likely have crippled the city as it was they were able to join the dispossessed masses almost unnoticed...

Re: The Summer Revolution


quote:

...The incident at the Bodkin Boutique was quickly resolved. Official accounts record the crowd as being dispersed by Deputy Sabella. However the diary of a trader of boots from Durinham records the presence of two Avarials and their pet cat. There are also some accounts that the small mob was dispersed by an Iron Golem, this suggests that one of the Avarials may have been Calisto. Or Deputy Sabella may have been in the company of her associate Seeker Yvette.

The continued escalation of tension between highlanders and the urban Avendelians is noted in the records of the City Watch. However given the timing not long following the arrival of refugees from New Rivenmaur; this may be the first unannounced activity of The Riven.

Re: The Summer Revolution


quote:

... Breadpudding Plaza was, at the time of the disaster, a small, humble, slightly neglected area surrounded by narrow twisted streets.

When Avendel was shaken from below these narrow passages collapsed and Breadpudding Plaza was effectively isolated from the rest of the city.

With the area non-vital no roads were reopened and those trapped in the plaza were forced to fend for themselves.

Perhaps it is no surprise therefore that the strangely well funded Tiefling criminal named Malice was able to establish a power base in the Plaza...
