The Uprising Period is a series of rebellions against the Holy Orenian Empire. Starting in 1810, the Orenian capital, Providence, was faced by an unnatural cold front, which greatly diminished the capital's food supplies, thus forcing the citizens of Providence to turn towards the Hinterlands to gather food. Rather than purchasing food off of the Hinterland farmers, Providence citizens chose to gather from their farms themselves, provoking the farmers of the Hinterlands into rebellion against the Empire. This became known as the Providence Cold Front. The Cold Front ended four years later in 1814, upon the dissolution of the cold front from the capital, therefore ending the food shortage and the rebellion.

Later in 1818, a militia force known as the Redhoods captured the farming town of Redenford, starting the Redhood Uprising.
