Zalanthan-esque Quote of the Day
« on: April 15, 2013, 12:37:21 PM »
Let's collect Zalanthas-related aphorisms that we can't quite use in game here. Bring 'em if you got 'em!

"Sociopaths don't live in society. They live on it."
"I have seen him show most of the attributes one expects of a noble: courtesy, kindness, and honor.  I would also say he is one of the most bloodthirsty bastards I have ever met."

“I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams...”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

"Violence is a personal necessity for the oppressed...It is not a strategy consciously devised. It is the deep, instinctive expression of a human being denied individuality."
— Richard Wright (Native Son)

"Slaves are generally expected to sing as well as to work."
— Frederick Douglass

"Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves."
— Henry David Thoreau

"But there’s no such thing as free. There are only different and more horrible ways to be enslaved."

The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

Basically the entire script of Kill Bill (blame IsFriday for reminding me), but there's a few in particular I love:

"It's mercy, compassion, and forgiveness I lack. Not rationality." - The Bride

"That woman deserves her revenge, and we deserve to die... but then again, so does she. So I guess we'll see." Bud

"I'm a killer! I'm a murdering bastard, you know that. And there are consequences to breaking the heart of a murdering bastard." - Bill

"No, you're not a bad person. You're a terrific person. You're my favorite person. But every once in a while, you can be a real cunt." - Bill



"Our whole lives are just stories." - Vikings

I have used this quote in character.

The same character quoted more parts of this speech than I care to admit

"I've ... seen things you people wouldn't believe. Mm heh.  Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched ... c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gates. All those ... moments will be lost in time, like ...  tears in the rain. Time to die."

-- death soliloquy, Roy Batty, Bladerunner

Someone in this game has had this very experience through the eyes of their character.

"Hell, I'll kill a man in a fair fight...or if I think he's gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there's a woman, or if I'm gettin' paid...mostly only when I'm gettin' paid."  -- Byn Trooper Cobb
Paint on a mustache and be a dude for a day. Stuff some melons down my shirt, cinch up a corset and pass as a girl.

Actually, Byn Trooper Cobb really should be part of the T'zai Byn docs.  Definite mercenary mentality.  More quotes from him:

(after being told that you can't get paid if you're dead):  "Can't get paid if you crawl away like a bitty little bug neither. I got a share of this job. Ten percent of nothin' is, let me do the math here... nothin' and a nothin', carry the nothin'... "

"You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with 'til ya understand who's in ruttin' command here. Now we're finishing this deal, and then maybe, *maybe* we'll come back for those morons who got themselves caught."

"Don't much see the benefit in gettin' involved in stranger's troubles without a up-front price negotiated."
