Jacob and the New Secret Combination
The organization behind the corrupt judges appoints a leader, Jacob, to be their king, with a sworn oath to destroy all governmental order.
Seeing that his faction was not as powerful as other Nephite tribes, Jacob leads his people to the land northward, in an attempt to gather recruits and strengthen his forces.
While the Nephite tribes remained independent, they agree to peace treaties, to avoid war.
