Lines for a Paladin: I shall spread the buttery justice of (Deity's name) over the toast of your iniquity. The succulent jam of light shall sweeten the sourdough of your evil ways. The creamer of light will dull the bitterness of your evil unholy coffee taste. The spatula of purity shall scramble the eggs of your malfeasance. Props if you know where these are from
some i was going to post myself had you not beaten me to it
not sure if it has been answered thus far as i haven't read the whole thread but it's from Gamers 2: Dorkness Rising
Immediately before delivering a dagger sneak attack/coup de grace:
"It's knife to meet you."
(I employ zie/zie/zir as a gender-neutral counterpart to he/him/his. Just a heads-up.)
Essentials definitely isn't for me as a player, and I feel that its design and implementation bear serious flaws which fill me with concern for the future of D&D, but I've come to the conclusion that it isn't going to destroy the game that I want to play. Indeed, I think that I could probably run a game for players using Essentials characters without it being much of a problem at all. Time will tell, I suppose.
So, I'm trying to come up with some possible bad-ass phrases for my character to have as trademark line before killing people. He's a half-orc Figther/MC Ranger, and a fanatical follower of (Forgotten Realms) Bane.
Because I steal almost all my ideas, I've been looking for inspiration in movies... but the best I can come up with is, "You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?" from Tim Burton's Batman. Jules' biblical tirade from Pulp Fiction is awesome, but rather too long-winded for use at the game table.
Anyone have any ideas?
And while we're at it, any suggestions for battle cries?
"Send (insert name of a chief demon or god of death) my regards."
And this one is stolen from Steven Erikson's excellent Malazan series, particulalry the Karsa Orlong character.
"Witness." Basically he says it before he does anything badass, and I played as a power-crazed sorceror who did the same thing. So before a daily, or when all hope seemed lost, he would demand that his enemies and comrades "Witness" his greatness. No blustering, no great speeches, just "Witness."
"We all die...I'm just here to expedite the process."
"Don't worry...hell isn't that lonely of a place. Your friends will be joining you soon."
All son's surpass their fathers, this is the way of life... my father? you don't want to meet my father... far to fire and brimstone for your taste.
Come, let us be.... friends (proceeds to dominate the enemy and use him to kill/maim his fellows).
and low, his blade went snicker-snack, he left it dead, and with its head, He went galumphing back.
If you are a bard, you could start a battle by singing a funeral dirge and continue until it ends.
(not so much something to say as something to do), after defeating the main villain/general, have him read his eulogy while kneeling infront of his soon to be filled grace (brownie-points for he who can guess who originalyl did this.)
I envy you sir/madame, the answer to one of life's most puzzling questions will soon lie at your feet, I would go with you, but alas I still have business to conduct here.
(not something to say when you are about to kill someone, but something to rattle the villain before he/she kills you or send you to the block). Fear not, we shall meet again, and in the next life I shall find your soul and smite it there.
(If you're a necromancer), do not think that death will be an escape, oh no, I shall bind your soul to your body and make you dance and tear yourself asunder.
(continuing the necromancer theme) I wonder, what do you think would happen if I were to bind your soul to a dung beetle? Lets find out, shall we?!
I shall twist you body and soul until you beg for oblivion.
