Chapter One: Unease

The members of the Observer Corps who desired change, those members were necessarily uneasy. Not only did they fear being discovered by the Continuum for the parts they played in fomenting revolution and instigating unease in the Collective, they feared that any other Observer who knew of their role in generating conflict would betray them.

Chapter Two: Disturbance

The rebellious were disturbing, which is why they were removed from the Collective, and sent to be Observers, excised like cancer by the Continuum.

They caused trouble, their presence created ripples in the waves of sentiment that washed through the Collective.

The Continuum would not suffer their malign influence, capturing the hearts of its constituency.

Chapter Three: Foment

The Observers could not foment revolution against the Continuum directly. They were the most closely watched group of people anywhere within the reach of the Continuum’s influence. Instead they worked against the Empire, which the Collective fed on, like a parasite on its host.

They sought to weaken the Collective and to poison the Continuum.

Chapter Four: Commitment

Revolution requires an absolute commitment from the rebels, from those whose desire it is to bring about change; they have to be willing to kill or be killed, to risk everything and everyone, to sacrifice what they love.

Only those with the ability to destroy a thing, control that thing.

The revolutionary must be committed.

Chapter Five: Cabal

The rebels found each other in secretive places, in the deep quiet of the darkest corners.

They learned to communicate in subtle signals, simple signs which they believed would evade the detection of the Empire.

They pushed messages slowly, over time, establishing lines of communication that joined them together, like thin cables stretching between worlds.

Chapter Six: Column

Thin Cabals made of loose associations and sympathizers, alliances tightened like the individual strands of fiber woven together to form a length of rope.

Cabals became columns capable of supporting concerted action, providing greater security.

Revolutionary movements required the support of such columns, they were the pillars that held up the dome of their ideals.

Chapter Seven: Sacrifice

A revolution could not survive without sacrifice, the rebel Observers understood this, they sacrificed each other with great regularity, on occasion they would even sacrifice themselves.

Even a member of the Collective could arrive at a place where they would serve a cause greater than their self-interest. These were rare moments, and every one mattered.
