Snappy faction slogans, anyone?

Post by eyerouge » July 27th, 2010, 1:40 pm

I'd be grateful for any and all suggestions for nice, interesting and snappy short "slogans" that describe a species/race or a faction in the Wesnoth universe.

Two semi-bad examples in orange:

Image
  • It doesn't matter (to me and my goals with this) much how in game storyline or "historically" correct they are.
  • What is important is that they try to capture the spirit, characteristics and attitude of the species/faction. They should relate to the species identity, as you perceive it.
  • Notice: If you post any suggestions you, by doing so, also agree that this may be used by the open source CCG project WTactics.org in any way, licensed using open source license(s).
  • All contributions that are somehow used by me will be properly credited to you on the WTactics site, using your forum nickname unless you, in your post, state you rather have another name associated with your contribution.
  • Needless to say, you are not allowed to post suggestions in this thread that you do not own the copyright of: In most cases this translates to that you have to be the author of your suggestion(s).

There will always be more orcs coming, and with them-- war.


Rebels

The pointy ears are a dead giveaway.



Loyalists

Under the royal banner are the proudest and most disciplined ranks of men.



Drakes

Would you like fires with that?




Undead

Controlled from the dark, and capable of unspeakable horrors
