After enslaving the orks
, the Falx have found the largest cache of ebonite ore ever since their arrival to Northeros. Using their newly discovered resources, they have constructed Portal Fortress Conquest, a massive stronghold deep in Imperial lands. Majisto, with the aid of Gallikronn, has spotted their activity and even managed to gather a small chunk of ebonite for study. King Mondaine deemed the Falx cannot be trusted since they are 'in league' with the orks, so he has dispatched a strike force to drive them out and destroy the fortress.
The Falx lords gather at Portal Fortress Conquest, ready to face the Imperials for the first time at large:
Torquemada: 'So the natives decided to show up at last. I must commend they knew when to strike, since the fortress is not yet functional.'
Pizzaro: 'They seem well-prepared, they might even pose us a challenge.'
Barthelomeo: 'Bah, as if! They will bow before the Falx just like all those lesser creatures we have already crushed!'
Isabella: 'Well if anything, we have plenty of fodder in the form of these savage greenskins.'
Torquemada: 'Regrettably, I cannot join this battle directly. The underlings have unearthed this rather... curious sample of ebonite. It feels much more potent than any other veins before. If you can hold up the attackers, I might be able to use it's powers to our benefit.'
Blaze: 'Hah, back on the fields just like in the old times huh lad?'
Apollyon: 'Indeed old friend, although I hoped this moment would have come a little later. Still, we must do our best and defend our lands from these peculiar invaders.'
Ferdinand: 'I'm more interested in their technical prowess; erecting such a massive fort within a few days is no simple feat! Though it seems they rely heavily on orks as of now.'
