The Fall of Terra is a scenario book for use with the BattleTech tabletop game. It also provides some details that allow use with BattleSpace and MechWarrior game systems. It provides 16 scenarios that lead the players through the Word of Blake campaign to wrest control of Terra from ComStar, as well as a sourcebook section leading up to the main event.

From the back cover

Since the Battle of Tukayyid, ComStar has been torn asunder. The misguided Blakists still adhere to the old ways that shrouded technology in a veil of mysticism for hundreds of years. While the Inner Sphere was caught up in the Jade Falcon attack on Coventry, the Word of Blake struck Terra quickly and without mercy, using deep-cover agents to cripple us from within. From this terrible blow, ComStar—and Terra—may never recover.

–From the diary of Sharilar Mori, Primus of ComStar

The lies of Focht's ComStar have gone unanswered long enough. The time has come to drive the heretics from the cradle of humanity. Then the purifying light of Blake's True Vision will shine again on Terra, the gleaming gem set at the heart of the Inner Sphere. Then all will know that the true ComStar, the Word of Blake, has returned to guide them through the darkness of ignorance.
–From an address to the Word of Blake Militia by Precentor Demona Aziz
