The Fall of the Eagles

The Fall of the Eagles

0 INK

Surrounded on two fronts, one alien and one at home, the Terran Empire is in danger. It's either capitulation or destruction; both choices lead Mankind to slaughter. Now, the Empire yells its old battle cry: "Victory or death!"

Introduction

Since the beginning of time, Man has seen the rise and fall of great empires and civilisations. Even in the far future, in the 6th Millennium, Man sees the fall of one of, if not the greatest empire Mankind had ever seen: an empire of true unity and diversity. This empire was the Terran Empire, ruled by the Emperor. This empire saw Mankind break out of the Sol System and advance further into alien territory along the Orion Arm. They conquered alien worlds and made them habitable when Terra's resources began to grow scarce. The people were peaceful in nature, but would never hesitate to fight an enemy that threatens them. It was the perfect world. However, as Man continued to fulfil their duties and destinies as the masters of the universe, they garnered the attention of an intergalactic organisation: the Federation of Orion. They realised how much of a threat Mankind was, and finally, in 2800 AD, these aliens finally showed themselves to Man, and Man realised that they truly weren't alone. War was declared when an Orion vessel attacked and raided HMS Fredericus. Fredericus successfully repelled the attack, however. At first, the Empire, a Consulate at the time, was hesitant to declare war upon an unknown enemy, thinking that these just might be an equivalent to pirates. Less than a Terran month later, however, an entire well-organised Orion fleet laid siege upon a Human colony, killing billions and enslaving hundreds of millions. Finally, the consulate declared war.

For millennia, Mankind pushed back the enemy. Under the control of former Consul and First Emperor Paul I, the consulate was transformed into an empire, and the forces were well-organised. In the fortress-mining planet of Sevastopol II, which contains more iron and fuel than any other planet under Human control, the alien forces landed in 4968 AD. A large-scale war lasting nearly thirty years lead to the fall of two-thirds of Sevastopol, leaving only a small mining deposit in the small pocket Humans controlled. This penetrated through the thick armour on the Terran war machine, and damaging its heart. The hammer that drove the stake into the heart itself was when Sevastopol II's last mining sites were bombarded with plasma, leaving nothing and killing everyone. The next to go was the thriving planet of Marcovin, which, after a bloody battle that cost the lives of a twentieth of the Imperial Army, was bombarded with plasma and killed every civilian, and those that managed to escape in ships were tracked down and captured. They were turned into slaves In retaliation, the empire ordered the hunting and execution of over a million aliens hiding in Human colonies away from the prying eyes of Terra. The two incidents drove the economy to a path of destruction. A deep recession was caused. Stocks went down. The war continues on, for the capitulation of Mankind would be its destruction.

Deep in the darkest corners of the empire, as the social order continues to dissolve into disorder, a group of radical individuals rise. They are the Anarcho-Progressives, a radical terrorist organisation of violent individuals who seek to destroy the social order and impose an unrestricted freedom for Man to do evil. Propaganda has labelled them 'the Devil's Advocates,' men who hate the empire and wish to declare peace with the destroyers of Mankind. An agreement was reached between the two groups, and the terrorist group was given alien technology to allow them to wreck havoc, bombing gatherings and grand traditional buildings. Surrounded on two fronts by foes, the Terran Empire declines. Many think that it's either they capitulate or die trying; in truth, both choices lead to death. So, the Emperor raises his fist, and cries out the old battlecry:
"Victory or death!"


Spoiler: show
The cold winter morning of December 30, 6999 AD started off quite nice in the forests of Alaska. The Emperor did his usual morning routine. He ate, then bathed in the hot showers. He finished putting on his last medal just in time to hear a knock on his door. "What is it?" Aurelius I asked. "Sir, your cousin, Dux Bellum, has arrived." "Just a moment," Aurelius called out.

The two cousins met by the fireplace. A wild orange flame burned, warming the bodies of the cold men. "Why have you called for me?" Bellum asked after sipping tea and placing a tiny cup on a plate he held with another hand. "You know of our situation, general," Aurelius said, staring at the flames. "These... Bolsheviks. They've begun to bomb our own citizens, it's outrageous! I hear they're in cahoots with those alien mongrels." "There's no need for formalities, cousin," said Philip. "Very well, Philly," replied Aurelius. "How do you suggest we deal with these pests?" asked Philip. "We will have to hold out in the front, and concentrate our forces on our enemy camps. Have the White Guard sent!" "I'm afraid that the only thing we can do is send the White Guard against the anarchist threat," said Philip. "What? Why?" asked Aurelius. "Our soldiers are barely holding on in our front." "Then what shall we do?" asked Aurelius. "I'm afraid the only thing I can think of is to continue sending reinforcements to the line. It's our only hope of repelling the enemy from our borders."

The Emperor
The supreme ruler of the Terran Empire, and the direct descendant of Paul I. Like his descendants, he despises democracy, as he believes that democracy is easily manipulated by corrupt men. He is a good statesman, a traditionalist at heart, but at the same time, a futurist. He is a Machiavellian, cold and calculating, ruthless against his enemies, but is, and always has been, family-oriented, and believe them to be the heart of the society.
Name: Aurelius Constantinus I|Age: 52|FC: Kaiser Wilhelm II|TAKEN by ImperatorBellum

The General
An aristocrat and a general. A cousin to Emperor Aurelius, the general has close ties with the government. He is the honorary leader of the empire when the Emperor is unwell. As the general, he is also in charge of strategising and managing the army's resources effectively.

The Colonel
The Colonel is considered one of the greatest soldiers in the Empire. He leads his regiment in the front, and his high rank and skill in combat made his exploits romanticised as he becomes a celebrity at home.

The Prince
The Prince stands as the next heir to the throne. Barely into his twenties, he already has connections to the government. Like his father, his duty is to the nation against the enemy. He is the sort of prince from stories, young, handsome, lively, adventurous–if you count riding to battle and scouting to be 'adventurous.' Deep down, he is cold and calculating like his father, and is family-oriented, as well.
