Default Mark of Chaos Question.

The warhammer fantasy game Mark of Chaos has a great opening but there is something i keep having arguments with my brother about.

During the part where the Warrior Priest shouts:

"To me Sons of Sigmar, for the....!"

Now here is the argument, im hearing it as "For the Emperor!" while he says its "For the Empire!" what are you lot hearing it as? The video is below:

It's clearly 'For the Empire!'. I don't how you could get 'For the Emperor!'.

Luke has it. It could be either - but to have an Empire, you must have Emperor - in this case Karl Franz. As Karl Franz has ascended the throne that centuries previous was created, and ruled by Sigmar, and also recieves the blessing of both the Grand Theogonist (High Priest) of Sigmar, the 2 Arch Lector's of Sigmar, and the High Priest of Ulric (Sigmar's own god), it fits perfectly.

Actually the game takes place long, long before Karl Franz's reign. It's set during the reign of Magnus the Pious.

Eh, Magnus, all the same. Regardless of who sits on the throne, he is chosen by the highest representatives of Sigmar, and the highest representative of Sigmar's God.

Well Magnus was less chosen, he kinda proved it really and then was chosen. And by the way it's clearly Empire!

It is said that the guttural sound of Dwarfs bellowing Grungni’s name is enough to make an Elf’s knees knock and a Goblin turn a sickly shade of yellow!

He says For the Empire,

but For the Emperor is cooler in my opinion

Pretty clearly 'For the Empire'. Unless you pronounce Emperor as Emp-I-rer.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

At first I thought he said "For the Emperor" but in roaring type of way, but then I played it over and over (I'm a media student specialising in TV editing so I do this often to make sure fades and cuts work) and I came to the conclusion he says "For the Empire!".


Fluff wise it's more likely to say "For the Empire" due to the fact it's a warrior priest and the Empire is Sigmar's creation and is more important than the Emperor. It's also less likely to see troopers be dedicated to the Emperor than the Empire as a while due to the different provinces.
