Fall of Man
Fall of Man
The Fall of Man is a set piece battle for Beastmen introduced in Call of the Beastmen. It is required for their campaign victory in both The Old World and Mortal Empires. The quest battle will spawn once all the factions required for the ''Short'' campaign victory have been eradicated (the main Bretonnia faction, and most Empire factions).
Oddly, it is the only quest battle not accessible from the Quest Battles entry on the Main Menu (aside from Tutorial battles and the battle if you lose the Vortex race). You can only play it by playing through one of the main campaigns as a Beastmen faction. It does not appear in the An Eye For An Eye mini-campaign.
Description[edit | edit source]
A grand alliance of the Empire and Bretonnia has mustered. It is a desperate act, the dying throes of a race close to extinction, yet a cornered beast is at times the most dangerous. Bretonnian cavalry are working in concert with the Empire's artillery and ranked infantry. Caution is advised, for we must strike at the right moment or be undone by this most-disciplined of hosts !
Quest Text[edit | edit source]
The Dark Gods are pleased... mankind is ravaged. They have been taunted, hunted and broken by the Children of Chaos. The land is ripe for an even greater invasion; for other followers of the Ruinous Powers to make their mark, as paltry as it will be compared to the triumphs of the Cloven Ones. Yet, there remains defiance - the armies of man-filth muster as one, refusing the inevitable. No matter ! This is but another opportunity for the Beastmen to prove themselves the most worthy of the Dark Powers' servants. Find this " gathering of might " and ensure the fall of man !
Intro Dialogue[edit | edit source]
Khazrak One-Eye : " See craven men ! See them limp together like scared cattle. They run no more ; now is slaughter ! Now we end lake hag's mongrels ; now we end Sigmar's weak sons.
Kill for me, kill for dark masters, kill ! That is why we were born ! KILL ! "
Epilogue[edit | edit source]
Mankind has fallen. Their civilization has been crushed ; stamped under hoof and shattered. The Gods will be pleased, for their children have done well, but what now for the Cloven Ones ? There is still much to do. While mankind's sovereigns have been slaughtered and their champion's corpses tossed on a raging pyre, the remnants of this pitiful race still live. It is decreed: all traces of man, and his limp allies, should be despoiled. Take the blood-spattered Banner of Fallen Kings - a glorious reminder of our victory - and finish the cull !
