    Default Quotes you can build a character off of III: It's a crowd

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I put one of these up, but they always bring up good discussions and always have wicked awesome quotes.
    Pretty simple, you have an epic quote that makes you want to build a character? Comment it. Do the same if their is an awesome piece of artwork that has the same effect on you.

    My contribution:

    "Learning is especially valuable when suffering is your teacher."
    "Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet."
    -James Mattis

    There is no emotion, there is peace.
    There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
    There is no passion, there is serenity.
    There is no chaos, there is harmony.
    There is no death, there is the Force.
    -Jedi Code
    Player: I'm going to make a new character, I suck at bard.
    Me: Your only saying that because you died.
    Player: So?
    Me: Everyone dies when they do stupid stuff between two rogues.

    Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
    Through passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I gain power.
    Through power, I gain victory.
    Through victory, my chains are broken.
    The Force shall free me.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
    — Spaceballs Code


    Some quotes I had picked out for a Pathfiner ranger I once played:
    In town you're the law. Out here it's me.
    — John Rambo, First Blood
    'Welcome to my parlor,' said the Spider to the Fly.

    And because I love The 13th Warrior so much, honestly one of my favorite descriptions for any enemy ever; the one-eyed old man talking about the Wendol:
    "I saw the thing that did this clear enough!

    Teeth like a lion, head like a bear, claws that could tear a plank to kindling.

    They come in the night, in the mist. Always in the darkest, like they could see in the black."
    "Did they go on two legs or four?"
    "It seems they did both, like a thing that was both man and bear. Though, myself, I cannot tell.

    I saw the glowwyrm, though. Saw it clear. We all did on the last night. Saw it come down out of the hills, through the mist. Slithering this way and that. Long as a hundred ships. Spitting fire at us as it came!

    My father's father always warned of it. Said it was a hate from old times…"

    Why is there a new thread? The last one is still active. It got a post only a week ago.

    "I was born Wilhelm III, raised Ricky, praised Sir Wilhelm the Unconquerable, condemned Wilhelm the Coward and now I live as Old Richard. Haven't decided what is going on my tombstone."

    Serves me right for not checking a page back, honestly it's been so long since I've been on the forum, I just assumed it died. (I'm an idiot)
    Regardless this gives me an excuse to make sure the thread has a slightly cooler name, and hopefully people will submit artwork since I put the prompt in the op.

    You could make a Fighter based off of Mr. T and call everyone and everything Foo

    It would be even better if everyone except Mr. T was actually named Foo

    So would that make Mr. T and the A-Team "Foo' Fighters?" Let's hope they don't have Exotic Weapon Proficiency (monkey wrench).

    "I am Banquo, I am Julius Caesar!" - Ghost Cassette, Scissorborn.

    I like the idea of a villain with megalomany but that isn't obsessed with being the first in power - but rather the one the patriarch of a house filled with kings and emperors. A small twist on megalomany.

    First the quote I 'pitched' on the old thread, then some new ones.
    Spoiler: Is your seat belt on?
    Show
    There were some other interpretations of this on the last thread. Mine is actually somewhere in between, someone who is normally calm and controlled but sometimes the can go crazy. In this case the crazy seems to come out when they are driving. The are both aware of that and so they check for the seat belts now.

    I got this quote, and that interpretation, from a very particular scene. A more famous version of the scene appears in MIB, when the old agent gets into the car with is new partner for the first time. Actually speaking of MIB.
    Spoiler: I am but a figment of your imagination.
    Show
    -MIB: Agent K

    Besides the very real possibility that I am a figment of your imagination, with magic and psychics who can say for sure, this is the spy. Or really anyone who does not exist on the record, as in 'I might as well be a hallucination as you will never prove I exist'. It is also encapsulated on a higher/organizational level with another quote from that movie.

    "We are they, we are them, we are the men in black." -MIB: Agent Z

    Now, although this is a rather common characterisation I feel like highlighting it because it is something most games will never achieve. Even of the spy games I have seen generally involve far to much collateral damage for anyone to "not exist".
    Spoiler: 'You know the difference between you and me?' Puts on sunglasses. 'I make this place look good.'
    Show

    -MIB: Agent J

    First the straight forward "original" way to look at it: The new guy who is 10% competence and 90% confidence. I suppose not a bad place to start but not a place a character should stay. If they actually know what they are talking about then maybe they do make the place look good, or are speaking to someone who makes this place look bad. Or the NPC PR representative who has to clean up the mess the PCs made. Again.
    Spoiler: Over radio. 'Get your feet of the [dash board].' 'You don't know that my feet-' 'Yes I do. Now move them.'
    Show

    Here we have two characters. One seems to be a ball of attitude and ego and the other seems to know how to handle that just fine. In addition person 2 seems to have told person 1 to move their feet main times. I sort of like that dynamic and... inter-character dynamics are something lacking in the games I have played.

    Also [dash board] was originally console, I though this might make more sense of context.

    I have an idea for a game, sort of like pitching quotes and coming up with the character, but this time it more the other way around. Pitch a archetype and then propose quotes to represent variants of the archetype. I suggest this both because it is different from what we usually do and because people might find that useful if they are looking for inspiration within a certain category. Or not. How does that sound?

    "This is the nature of war, whose stake is at once the game and the authority and the justification. Seen so, war is the truest form of divination. It is the testing of one's will and the will of another within that larger will which because it binds them is therefore forced to select. War is the ultimate game because war is at last a forcing of the unity of existence. War is god."

    OOR RAH
    - US Marine Battle Cry

    Pretty good for a fighter, probably just base him off of a marine and make him so murican that all he will want to do is eat hamburgers, watch baseball, listen to country music and kill the communists with all his guns

    (Keep in mind I DO NOT hold this stereotype of Americans, I am one, but I don't fit this list, I don't feel like eating a hamburger every day)
