Dawn of Man[]

May your entrepreneurial spirit and engineering talent shine, oh talented Rory Swann! You are an engineer born to a family of Kel-Morian miners. You sought to make a living mining in the rich planet of Meinhoff, but was robbed of your chance to prosper by the craven and greedy Tavish Kerr. Kerr cravenly bribed the bureaucrats of Kel-Morian Combine to deprive you, and while you sought independence to decry the injustice you were suppressed by the Kel-Morian forces and escaped with but your life thanks to the intervention of Jim Raynor. While you too weren't too enthusiastic about Raynor's plan for a joint operation with Valerian on Char, you've remained loyal to Raynor nonetheless, and later joined the new Dominion after Arcturus was overthrown and Valerian placed in charge, fighting Amon's forces.

Great artisan Swann, enter a new world that is not scarred by the tragedy of Meinhoff. May your skill and spirit be a beacon to the innocent miners who just want to make a living. Will you bring your own Combine free of the injustices into fruition, and bring it to prosperity as you have dreamt? Can you build a civilization which would stand the test of time?

Dialogue List

    • Howdy, welcome to Meinhoff, stranger! We are but humble free miners, and I'm just the business owner Rory Swann who represent them, that's alle.
    • Oh, aren't you a new one. I am Rory Swann, just an entrepreneuring miner that's all. I hope we can get along.
  • Defeat
    • Havin' right on your side ain't no match for guns and tanks.
    • Social Darwinism claims yet another victim.


Swann's Meinhoff is an economic/industrial powerhouse, and it is most similar to Vulkan's Nocturne in that it focuses on production and production facilities. Unlike Vulkan whose secondary focus is religion, Swann is more secular, having a focus on golden age and gold income. Likewise, Vulkan's military bonus is better quality, whereas Swann's military bonus is about survivability.

As mines and quarries are the bedrock of Swann's economy, Swann should actively develop any such resources as soon as possible. The SCV's ability to traverse harsh territories without problem should aid in Swann's pursuit, and the Refinery should provide a late-game boost to production to retain Swann's primacy.
