Quotes of, by, and for, the Citadel
« on: February 12, 2007, 06:18:01 PM »
so, we have movie quotes, book quotes, game quotes and famous quotes. 

Let us indulge...I propose marking and noting great quotes and/or passages by our fellow citadelians. Quotes, terms, sentences, and turns-of-the-phrase, mined from countless submissions, and put forth here for our enjoyment, and as a "way-to-go!" cheer for the writer in question.

here, I'll begin:

Siren no Orakio: A man needs two things to become a saint. He must perform three miracles, and then he must die

Scrasamax: mercy is a game played by the merciless.

Ancient Gamer: Unbeknownst to anyone, the mage watched the birth through the windows of the miller's home, and when Thenadore arrived his soul probed the young newborn for a shelter and a host in the years to come. Curious, the innocent soul of Thenadore accepted, and in the last seven years they have co-existed in a symbiotic and benevolent partnership

manfred: The only creature, that can be victorious on any battlefield, is the raven."

Psalmanazar: Those who visit will find the penitents to be harmless, if somewhat delusional; They are flat and uninteresting, but absurdly hopeful about their paradise to come.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Not so much lines from subs or rps, more lines from just general existence.


Murometz - I don't like being watched.  I like to conduct my evil deeds in private.

Murometz - The good news is that if you kill two xaren with 0 xp, you'll be well on your way to second level.
Ria Hawk - The bad news is that we have to kill two xaren with 0 xp.

EchoMirage - I am of the opinion that one should love everybody who ain't a jerk.

Wulfhere - I assure you that being a jackass is it's own punishment.

MoonHunter - But I like ranting.

Strolen - I was thinking of a type of earwax that gained intelligence....
Wulfhere - No... We have to work with semi-sentient ear wax every day.  We don't want it on the Citadel.
Ria Hawk - The sad thing is that's fairly accurate...
valadaar - And generous...

MoonHunter Wow! I didn't even need to google it, just had to kick some grey cells.

MoonHunter I started using the line,
      "I have forgotten more about gaming than you know."

It dovetails nicely with the line,
       "I have rule books, some of which I am still using, older than you."
       
       "But If I start remembering things, I am going to have to stop using that line."

[MoonHunter] 11:11 am: *holds back another rant*
[MoonHunter] 11:11 am: *going to explode*
[MoonHunter] 11:12 am: *manging to supress, barely*
[manfred] 11:12 am: Try another Chuck Norris quote, those help.     

[MoonHunter] 11:12 to 11:14am:
Chuck Norris does not edit submissions, he glares at them and the errors run away

Chuck Norris always scores a 5 on all his submissions, because they all end
with a perfect Round House Kick

Chuck Norris never comments on submission. He simply glares at the author, and they know what they did wrong.

Chuck Norris never submits a magic weapon, after all those are for #@$@# who can't throw a round house kick.

Siren No Orakia-''Man, too, is a primal creature, though he binds himself with the chains named Reason and Law, locked link by link from birth. Yet, those locks can be opened, the links broken, in both the savage world of the street-slum, and in the gilded cages of nobility.''
“I'm yet another resource-consuming kid in an overpopulated planet, raised to an alarming extent by Hollywood and Madison Avenue, poised with my cynical and alienated peers to take over the world when you're old and weak.” -Bill Watterson

"The inanimate body of a Burlap Golem, rent nearly in two, is used as a combination of sleeping bag and mattress. A bubbling jar of what looks like noses with tiny muscled feet bodes ominously beside it. Occasionally, a bubble stirs the slick green fluid and one of the noses jumps away in fright"

"This free role playing site continues to grow with your help, so join our role playing community, read our material, post a few ideas, and go play."

From the main page - I'm sure you've all seen it.

Nonetheless, it sums up the purpose and format of the citadel so splendidly that I feel it deserves to be posted here.
