Built to last, but made to fall

I will not answer if you call

You must know how to make me stall

Or death will be upon you all

A hang-glider, or perhaps a parachute? While those don't conflict with any of the lines, it would make some of them of questionable value, so I'm sure there's something that fits better.

A dead communications satellite. It is definitely built to last. It's made to fall in case of any problems. It's dead, so it definitely won't answer if you call. And if it's improperly stalled, it could fall on a city and death will be upon them.

Unlikely? Yes.

Possible? Why not?

How about a Dam? Built to last.. the water falls, if you don't hold it back, we all drown. (or the ones who can't swim anyway)

Maybe a pendulum? It falls to keep track of time, and if you can't stop time, you will die

hmmm, death will be upon you all though. I think that points elsewhere.

Built to last, but made to fall

It is made to fall(on others) , but yet it is does not die.

I will not answer if you call

It is non-living.

You must know how to make me stall

One has to know how to stop it.

Or death will be upon you all

If it is not stopped , it will result in individual death(Or)death in large numbers.

SINS??

duh puck got this one right off the bat, congrats and sorry for the late reply, but I guess it needs a bit of an explanation. grey cells has some great explanations, but just looking in the wrong place. I'll use that answer for my reasoning

a parachute.

Built to last, but made to fall

It is made to fall (for falling purposes), made well (hopefully functional and will last many times).

I will not answer if you call

It is non-living Exactly. if you yell at the parachute, it won't deploy.

You must know how to make me stall

One has to know how to stop it. Not quite right: the object doesn't have to be the one stalling given this line, it just has to stall (in this case, it stalls someone or something)

Or death will be upon you all

If it is not stopped , it will result in individual death(Or)death in large numbers. Good call on seeing that this could mean each individual's death, but again (referring to line 3) if it does not stall (the rapid descent of who or what to which it is attached) then they will die or be destroyed

nice work everyone. I'll have to come up with more difficult riddles from now on I guess. At least it has a nice flow to it :)
