Inspiring Words

I've recently started playing a Warlord in our 4e campaign, and like to accompany the use of the Inspiring Word power with a short "inspriring" sentence or a few words, and i've started to run out.

So far ive used things like

"Stay with us, Gazor!"
"On your feet soldier, you lady isnt finished with you yet!" - to the paladin of the raven queen
"No Mercy, Gazor, NO MERCY!!"

etc etc

Does anyone have any other ideas? or things they have used?
How's this?

"If we die, we die hero's deaths, but we will NOT die, no! It is the enemy who faces death this day!"

"Now or never! Stand together!"

"WAAAGH!"
From "Rome: Total War"; Barbaric battle speeches with a touch of Dnd.

(Copy and paste from the barbarian chants, rituals, etc)


"RALLY TO ME!!!"

"How terrible it must be to face us; the sons of the wolf and the bear! Even now fear works in the bowels of our foes!"

"Fighting is easy, what is hard is the look on your womans face when you are a weakling. But I do not see anyone here of my men who deserves to be called that!"

"The very fact that these so called "magical" and "civilized" people fear us means that they are worth less than the dirt beneath a toenail! The elven war god must have a sense of humour, I mean look at them!"

"Today is a good day to die! Today is a great day to meet the Gods! So let us send the enemy screaming to meet their Gods today!!"

"I do not fight with a cool head today, I admit it. My eyes see only a red mist. I do not want them to run from battle, I want their heads on our pikes by evening!

"Harden your hearts, sharpen your swords and when the enemy is here, send them all to their ancestors in a tide of blood!!"

"Oneof you is worth more than any number of them!"

"We go now to our bloody business."



"UNITS, AWAIT MY ORDERS!!"
Here's ones I've used...

"Ashylus! Are you going to take that from a beggar?" (Inspiring Word)

"Get up Ashylus, he's making you look like a fool!" (Knight Move on prone person)

"Do I have to show you how its done?" (Hammer and Anvil)

"They aren't going to get the best of us!" (Stand the Fallen)

FYI: Ashylus is a semi-evil fighter/cleric of the Raven Queen... Easiest way to motivate him is to **** him off. :D

Hehe, here's one I used.

"Alright, if any of you boys die, I'm gonna drag you back from hell and kill ya myself!"

OR

"Men, don't die for our cause! Make the enemy die for his!"

", Now!!"

"Drive them!!"

"Ready Yourselves!!"

"Hold your ground!!"

"Stand Firm!!"

"Bring me the baby!!"
I intend to have my Gnoll's Heal check (Second Wind) to be. *kicks* GET UP! You're not done with them yet!"
"You heal yourself, or so help me gods I will plant a boot up your intestines and heal you myself!"

"There's a sale on enemies' heads, boys! Half off!"

"A true warrior never dies!'

"I look forward to killing them soon!"
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.”


“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.”
From our Eladrin Warlord to our Warforged Paladin
Get up you 5 Copper Hooker! He hasn't Paid yet! Take it out of his Hide!

That Paladin goes down so much.
Into the battle and remember your family, or the enemy certainly will.

Duty and Honor Until Sword and Heart Break

Into the battle! Not for money nor for king or country, but for the man beside you and the family behind you. Now fight!

Fight today! there will be plenty of time for dying tomorrow.
Wow... No obvious 300 references yet... Good.

(To ally at 0 HP and unconscious) - "Get up! You're not THAT dead!"
Basically, any Ahnold quotes are perfect for warlord powers.

Tactical retreat? "Git to de choppah!"

Terrifying warcry? "I eat green berets for breakfast, and right now I'm very hungry!"
"Fight through the pain!"

"Kill them!"

"Make them pay!"

"BRING IT!" (about any warlord-foe interaction or when total defensing)

"I don't care if Kord forgives you for dying in the line of duty! I won't forgive you!"

"You're always too young to die, but you're never too old to stop fighting!"

"I think that one over there just insulted your mother"

"FOR HONOR!!! FOR GLORY!!! FOR VAST AMOUNTS OF GOLD!!!"

"Your story is not finished yet, little sparrow"

and if you want to go all ARNOLD on them there's always this one (bonus points if your a warforged warlord)

"Come with me if you want to live"

"Oh, look. Little Halfling me still fighting, while big bad Dragonborn takes a nap. Get up and fight!"

I am both selfish and instinctive. I value growth and community, as long as they favour my own objectives; I enjoy nature, and I particularly enjoy watching parts of nature die. At best, I am resilient and tenacious; at worst, I'm uncontrollable and destructive.
I like the idea for this thread, but a lot of these are waaaay to long. IMO this should be something you can shout quick, not several lines you spit out.

Suck it up Princess!
On your feet soldier!
You fight like my sister! (retort: I've fought your sister, that's a compliment!)
Walk it off!
A flesh wound!
Mandatory since someone said Princess: EXCUUUUUUUUSSSSSE ME, PRINCESS!

Some simple ones for those more worried about beating the enemy (AND SCREAMING LOUDLY WHILE DOING IT) than saving the dying.

LIVE!

SLAUGHTER!

EVISCERATE!

Up and at 'em!

WUSSY GIRLS, ALL OF YA!

The enemy's that way!

"You know there's a problem when I'm doing your job! Up and at 'em!"

(When using commander's strike) "Me? Naw, I aint aproblem. My friend there is!"
"WHAT. IS. YOUR. PROFESSION?!"

I believe the answer from 300 was as follows: AAHHRRROOO!!!

With a bunch of shield smacking and manly shouts.

"If you die this day, I swear I'll feed you to this *****"
"is that all it takes to knock you down? perhaps you'd prefer to bring the real warriors drinks"
"If you don't get up right now I'm sleeping with your sister!" (works better if you're female)
"Come on, you didn't need those teeth, keep fighting"
"It's just a flesh wound"

Other things to use more in the form of "drawing on inner strength to keep fighting"
"It's almost down lad, redouble your efforts!"
"I'm buying a drink for whoever finishes this thing"
"Solder! Duncan is down, we need to finish this NOW!"
"Alright lads! Let's get to fighting!"
half way through a battle "Warm-ups over, stop streching and start fighting"
Hiram Renard's* Inspiring Words (not yet used in a game):

"Stay on your feet. This isn't over yet - unfortunately!"

"I better throw your doggie a bone." (healing the Ranger Beastmaster's companion)

"You call yourself a warrior?"

"Let me handle the thinking, you do the fighting. Now get up!" (To be used when a risky tactic employed by another PC fails)

Hiram using Adaptive Stratagem (Warlord Utility 2 from MP):

"Concentrate!"

"I think you need to focus more."

Better to fight windmills than become a miller!

"Bluff, bluff, bluff the stupid ogre!"
Well, my Battle Cleric of Pelor isn't quite the same, but I like to make his Healing Words more like Inspiring ones.

"Stand fast, men! Pelor is with us this day!"
"Not a one of us shall enter the Shadowfell today!"
"Arise, comrade! Fight on, in the name of peace!"
"That gash is nothing like what I'll do to you if you run!"
"Fight or I'll kill you myself!"
"In Pelor's name, I beseech ye to fight!"
"What are you lookin' for? I'm no poet. Get up, you idiots!"

I've got some joke ones too:
"When I say Raven, you say Queen! Raven!" "Queen!" "Go meat!" (That was more spur of the moment)
"Hey! Fortune favors the bold, not the wusses!"
"If you turn undead, I'll turn you! Now get back up!"
"Don't make me turn this party around!"
"Pelor's not happy about reanimating corpses, so get up before you become one!"
"Those monsters are making a yummy sound. I wouldn't lie still if I were you."
"I'm a fighter, not a doctor! Oh wait, maybe I have that wrong."
The dragon/orc/whatever is still standing! Get up, and FINISH THE JOB, PANSY!

Slightly modified from its original source, but:


"C'mon! If you can dodge traffic in Waterdeep you can dodge a damn axe!"
How could leave out the geek classic:

"Excelsior!"

And for the more poetic:
"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;" or some variant therein.

(edit) Heck all sorts of winning phrases in here from that scene:

I need heroes; not corpses!

Strive! Obey! Endure!

What we do in life echoes in eternity; what will your echo say if you just lie there and die? (somewhat inspired by Gladiator)

That's the worst fake death cough I've ever heard! Up and on your feet soldier!

History may remember you as many things, but if you die now they'll all translate into loser. Arise and defend the honor of your name if you have the stomach for it.

You can't kill the metal. Metal will live on. (inspired by Tenacious D, and especially fitting for a Bard/Warlord whenever the bard class is released.)

I'm both orderly and selfish. I act mostly for my own benefit, but I respect and help my community - Specially when it helps me. At best, I'm loyal and dedicated; at worst, I'm elitist and shrewd.

Get up and get moving, or I'll kill you myself!

Get up, and stick that fancy sword in the enemy! This ain't fencing, you don't get to give up just because the ***** got a hit in!

If yer still alive, than ye can still fight.

*kick* Get moving already!
