Call to the Community to Brainstorm some Lore text
#1
A thread created by hylandpad on Discourse.

The text was ripped from it by ShadowSun

hylandpadLoremasterFeb '15
I know the world of Duelyst is pretty enigmatic and we're not quite sure what to make of the world yet, but some of my favorite memories of TCGs was reading the lore text in the small print at the bottom of MTG cards to get an overall feel for the characters and the world. As a little thought experiment and a fun community event, I thought it might be cool to start to fill in that void for the cards we love most, and create some lore text based on what we know about the game via gameplay and concept art. Hopefully, lore text will eventually make it into the game, but in the event that it doesn't, this might be a fun way for the devs and the community to put their heads together and clarify a look and feel for the world.

For example - one of my favorite cards is "Cosmic Flesh."

Cosmic Flesh - "Vetruvia knows allure of the heavens is irresistible to all."

Entropic Decay - "In the beginning we were as dust. In the end, to dust we return."

Wind Shrike - "They move like a sandstorm, darting out of view and assaulting from all sides."

Hamon Bladeseeker - "They sacrifice much, these Bladeseekers, for power unrelenting."

Kaido Assassin - "A blade is most effective when expertly planted between the shoulder blades."

Silverguard Squire - "Not many of them live, in all honesty. But their ranks somehow never dwindle."

Silverguard Knight - "Leave it to the Lions to turn shields into swords."

Arclyte Sentinel - "Terrifyingly fast, those Sentinels. But the speed isn't what kills you. The spear to the gut will do that."

Etc etc. I'm sure we're going to be exposed to more characters from whom these quotes can come from. If anyone else is interested I'd love to hear your thoughts and additions.

Inner Focus - "One need only look at themselves to find true strength" Old Songhai saying.


hylandpadLoremasterFeb '15
Some more for funsies:

Lysian Brawlers - "Before it was absorbed into the Lyonar Empire, the isle of Lys was known for its fine wine. It's now known for producing some of the finest pugilists in all the land."

Ironcliffe Guardian - "I'd never seen anything like it. A massive metal behemoth of orichalcum plummeted from the sky and shook the earth below."

Second Sun - "Their devotion to their Bloodborn General borders on fanatical. His radiance emboldens them."

Curse of Agony - "When pushed to the limits of pain, even the most devoted minion will turn on its master."

Nightsorrow Assassin - "The agents of Nightsorrow Sisterhood rarely return from a mission alive... but neither do their targets."

Shadow Watcher - "They feed on death. The negative energy of lost life strengthens their powers."


hylandpadLoremasterFeb '152
Flameblood Warlock - "Fire owes no allegiance. It burns us all the same."

Silhouette Tracer - "Kaleos' blades passed harmlessly through Argeon - he discovered too late that his target was but a shadow."

Phlanxar - "The strongest Magmar learn at an early age how to fight with large, heavy objects."

Earth Walker - "Magma bubbled up beneath its feet, filling it with power. The very earth seemed to betray us."

Unstable Leviathan - "The beast could barely contain its own massive power, as primal energies struck at all around it."

Fractal Replication - "Magma powered Magmar society. Now it is the fuel for its war engine."

Young Slithar - "The Slithar are one of the oldest Magmar clans. Their numbers and pedigree do Sordyth proud."

Repulsor Beast - "No one is really sure what those crazy alchemists did to those swamp dogs... but they definitely didn't look like that before."

Silvertongue Corsair - "Aye. I've slain me a Bloodborn general or two. What's it to you, scallywag?"


kiesto88Dev TeamFeb '15
Really loving these so far!!! Love flavor text smile How about these:

Drain Morale - "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold."

Natural Selection - "Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world."

Mask of Celerity - "The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere."

Ritual Banishing - "The ceremony of innocence is drowned."

The best part is...just like Mechaz0r, these combine together into a famous poem:

"Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned.”

W. B. Yeats
And which the poem also hints at the core story about Duelyst!


hylandpadLoremasterFeb '151
Dude. Meta as all hell.

Speaking of Mechaz0r...

Helm - "And I'll form the head!" (Brownie points if you get this right away)

Cannon - "After the smoke cleared, we saw the very walls of the city had been pierced - stone, earth, and anything else in the way, parted in a perfectly circular hole."

Wings - "I had never seen such mobility out of a machine. It flew with frightening control and adaptability."

Chassis - "No matter what we did to it - nothing left a scratch."

Sword - "Its red blade flashed and danced across the battlefield with mathematical precision ; no movement wasted, no strike missed a mark."

Mechaz0r - "Entire cities have fallen to its component parts. How in the hells are we supposed to fight THAT?"


unsevenDev TeamFeb '15
Haha I love this so much. My favorite ones are Mecha Sword and Silverguard Knight, so clever!
Here are some:

Sunriser: "There's no stopping light when days are infinite."
Sand Howler: "Not even the strongest magic can pierce the wildest of sands."
Bloodmon Priestess: "Under the red moon, all souls have just one destiny: the lowest of the abysses."
Sarlac The Eternal: "A tortured General cursed by his own greed to live forever and remember his defeat on the Duelyst tournament."

(None of these are actual lore, even though I'm dev, I'm not the writer, just having fun here )


ChinjahLoremasterFeb '15
Primus Shieldmaster - "Easily disposable, yet, for his master, he would do anything."

Not completely sure about the grammar on that one to be honest, but I tried.


Auran_AlchemistKickstarter BackerFeb '15
Wind Stopper - "Used to be such a happy little fellow, until he cast off his old identity of Meghan Shieldbearer"

A throwback to the old art. For the newer people you can see the original card in kickstarter update 32.


LokomotivetKickstarter BackerFeb '151
Eh I'll give it a shot.

Sworn Avenger - "Justice rarely finds it's way to the battlefield."
Silvertongue Corsair - "You'll find the answer in the bottom of the bottle."
Shadow Nova - "Nowhere is safe, even the ground turned against us."
Mist Walking - "Smoke & Mirrors."
Divine Bond - "Strike with your golden heart in the name of Lyonar and you shall vanquish the weak."
Shadow Dancer - "If looks could kill."
Vorpal Reaver - "Cut its head off and six will grow back."


SimplyMonkMECHAZ0R MASTERFeb '15
Tusk Boar - "Uh oh. You called him a 'pig'. You really shouldn't of done that. Now you're in for it." - Songhai Boar Handler Tymon

"Of our two masters, we've found Time the more difficult to cheat"

I like that one a lot.

Since Vetruvia is my favorite, I'll take a crack at the Scion's Wishes

First Wish : "First, he prayed to the shifting sands, that they would blind his enemies, and part for his allies."

Second Wish : "Then, he prayed to the air, that they might grant his soldiers the strength and speed of the whirling tornado."

Third Wish : "Finally, he prayed to the Lifemother, that she might grant him some dominion over death itself."


RyanHProfessional S-Rank Vanar Feb '15
I'll do one for Storm Kage!

"Once a humble samurai named Nicholas, after a bizarre, stormy night the villagers woke up to find Nicholas...and the storm Kaged within."

(NICHOLAS KAGE REFERENCE YAAAAAAY FINALLY)

Archon Spellbinder:
"Long ago, a simple mage seeked to ascend and reach ultimate power, after seeing what it did to others, he now seeks to silence all magic."


Avatar_IgnisKickstarter BackerFeb '151
Dancing blades: favorite song? Sabre Dance, obviously

Twin strike: when one strike alone just wont do

Unstable Leviathan: forged on the crucible of evolution, this hypercarnivore now finds himself the apex predator. With no control in place this monstrosity has become quite...unstable.

Fractal replication: unfortunately these clones are Müllerian mimics, not Batesian mimics.

I'd love for the magmar to have science/evolution/trophic level type references.


UmbrellaDev TeamFeb '15
A lot of these are incredible, Silverguard Knight is almost too perfect. I definitely have to take a stab at some of these;

Enslave: "Those too valuable to bury in sand, the Vetruvian bury in doubt."

Aymara Healer: "Though the healers' aid is invaluable, the cure they sought was to end the war themselves."

Ethereal Obelysk: "What dervishes lack in longevity they make up for in persistence."

Portal Guardian: "The strength of all those who fight alongside of him, stockpiled into a single strike."

Second Sun: "As darkness befell the Lyonar, a new light rose from their ranks, instilled with the determination of their general."

Heartseeker: "Precision or charm -- one way or another, they always find their way into your heart."

Lantern Fox: "Those drawn to the flame are too mesmerized to notice the reflection looming behind them."

Abyss Crawler: "They carry a darkness inside of them that they are eager to share with the world."

Gloomchaser: "Oblivion loves company."

Spirit Harvester: "Its solitude fueled the rage that caused it to be alone -- so it ate."

Primordial Gazer: "Evolution, eager to regress at a momentary glimpse of its ancient ferocity."

Silithar Elder: "Magmar measure age in strength rather than time, and there's strength in numbers."

Swamp Entangler: "The root that catches your foot catches will be the one that drags you down into the swamp."

Venom Toth: "Venom toth cause others to realize that the deadliest poison is the hatred inside themselves."

Lightbender: "Shedding light on a situation often reveals how simple it truly was."

Wildfire Ankh : "His scepter glowed with untold power. With a flourish of his staff, the wall across the room simply disintegrated." - Krath the Relic Hunter

Orb Weaver : "Those Dervish things don't sit well with me. Something about those masks and the way they move all jittery-like. I don't like them one bit. Get me the hells out of Vetruvia." - Calden Lightmane, Envoy to Lyonar

"Fighting against the Vetruvian empire was like fighting against a sandstorm. (Windswept Obelysk)
The Dervishes and their blast mages made the war horribly impersonal, not an honorable conflict between soldiers as we had been trained to fight in. (Pyromancer)
In the end, though, they were like a sandstorm; the agency in the war was ours, and so we prevailed. Such is the nature of nature and progress."

Oh man, these are so cool! I'm gonna try a few:

Abyssal Crawler: Take care around Abyssian corpses. They may not be as dead as you think. -Leonys, Lyonar High Commander

Darkfire Sacrifice:" Two bonuses: You get rid of the stench, and it's more effective than a wood furnace!" -Mortithus, Abyssian Reaper Trainer

Grasp of Agony: The smallest soldier can become the largest threat.

Shadowdancer: Every wraithling you
kill is just fuel for the fire.

OR

Of course I send them on suicide runs. Wraithlings are worth more to me dead, with her around. -Lilithe Blightcaster

Soulshatter Pact- The souls of her soldiers are a small price to pay to achieve victory.

Daemonic Lure- The whispering promise of ultimate power is something no one can resist.

Shadow Nova- It came out of nowhere. Suddenly we were trapped in a sea of screams from our comrades. -Osris, Vetruvian Emissary.

Horn of the Forsaken- Lilithe's call to battle was like the soothing song of a mother to the souls of those lost in the aether.

Rite of the Undervault: The Undervault is the deepest section of the Abyssian headquarters. It's also the oldest. Even Lilithe has forgotten what's down there.-Noxus, Abyssian Reaper.

I love this thread. ^^ Moar, moar!

Flameblood Warlock: Granted, they aren't exactly what you would call accurate, but they get the job done. - Zaac, Songhai Recruitment officer

Rasha's Curse: The last crumbling extremities of the old god, trapped in their death throes, scratched into the wall of the tomb an inscription none can understand, but also cannot forget.

Dark Seed: The enemy will die by their own hand/wanton desire for victory! -- Corus, Abyssian Wraithling "Morale" Officer

I also think it would be pretty cool to have the generals interact or at least respond to the summoning of units on the board. These could be done through chat bubbles, which are pretty much only used for emojis. Doing ti with text eliminates the need for voice actors and kind of keeps the comic book/ graphic novel feel that Duelyst already has.

If I'm playing as Lyonar and my enemy summons a Songhai assassin unit, perhaps Argeon would say "You send Assassins to do your dirty work? Face me in combat Kaleos!" Kaleos may rebutt with something along the lines of "Any general who doesn't pursue all paths to victory, is a fool."

This could be done non-invasively, in much the same way that the opening taunts are done too - a semi-transparent strip across the top or bottom of the screen, with a portrait. Limit general comments to once every couple turns so the top/bottom of your screen isn't flooded with words. Keeping them only semi-regular makes it seem like more of an event than a regular occurrence.

No reason why general taunts shouldn't go here. I'll start with some.

The formula I'll use is:

to when

For example

Zirix to Argeon when Sunstone Templar is fielded:
"Your holy men should have stayed in their temples this day, Lord of Lions."
Rebuttal
"It is you who should have kept to your desert palace - we come to return you to the sands."

Love this thread guys, made me join the forum lightly_smiling:
So I wrote a bunch of them myself and I hope you like them! I'm not a native speaker so... If anyone likes one of the ideas but the wording's off, please feel free to set them straight!

Here we go:

Grasp of Agony: „I applaud your comradery (camaradery?), little soldier. You shall have a gift to share with your friends.“ -Lilith Blightchaser

Soulshatter Pact: „The joyful malice in their eyes sent chills down my spine. Then it disappeared in a moment and pure rage took its place.“ -Bilgrin, Silverguard Veteran

Deepfire Devourer: „A mindless glutton, really. Mouth and tentacles is all there is to it. But then, that's all I need it to be.“ -Lilith Blightchaser

Abyssal Crawler: „Slaying those critters gets so frustrating! They become neither less of an eyesore, nor less malevolent.“ -Bilgrin, Silverguard Veteran

Horn of the Forsaken: The horn sang with every swing of the sickle and gave life to the twisted figures painted in the poor man's blood.

Dark Transformation: Timen of the Kaido thought he knew every aspect of his inner self. Then the witch came and proved him wrong.

Shadowdancer: „It's an art. You need fine senses to find the rhythm in those choirs of agony.“ -Lilith Blightchaser

or

Noone understands the music I play quite as they do.“ -Lilith Blightchaser

Reaper of the Nine Moons: Among the cruelest of the abyssal spawn, they award your short victory over their shell by possessing the one closest to you.

Inner Focus: To rule the cosmos within you is to rule

Mistdragon Seal: There is no sensation like riding the mist, except maybe for the kill that most often follows.

Ghost lightning: „I only need to release it. The lightning knows the way.“ -Kaleos Xaan

Gorehorn: „The ground should shake beneath their feet and still, we never hear them coming.“ -Bilgrin, Silverguard Veteran

Four Winds Magi: Only prodigies may separate the black and white that is interwoven in every magic, like the four winds are interwoven in a storm.

Deathstrike Seal: The Masters of the Seals rightfully brag to be deadly with metal in any shape. Or wood. Or glass. Or a slice of Vanarian* bread.

/*(Dunno if that's the right word :P)

Mask of Shadows: Though it lies in the nature of a mask to conceal, the greatest merit of this one is to reveal even the slightest vulnerability in front of it.

Cyclone Mask: Technology, art, magic, spirituality. To the songhai, these are all the same.

Sabrespine Seal: „Ever seen a man dress like an Ox and act like a Cat? It ain't half as funny as it sounds.“ -Bilgrin, Silverguard Veteran

Juxtaposition: What battle formation, you ask? Is that the first time you face the Songhai, boy? -Bilgrin, Silverguard Veteran

Lantern Fox: Constructed to guide souls into the next world, they excel at their task.

Frosthorn Rhyno: „Very territorial. Especially when it takes a liking to other people's territory.“ -Bilgrin, Silverguard Veteran

Fenrir Warmaster: „I always wondered: Death in battle or endless battle in death; what is it they seek?“ -Kaleos Xaan

Jaxi: „We know they spy on us for their master. That is the price we must pay for their service.“ -Faie Bloodwing

Jax Truesight : „Some say power lies in numbers. Others claim information is power. I agree.“

Some of the quotes fom Bigrin could just as well come from Telkis I guess. The private should definitely be a thing lightly_smiling:

Here we go again!

Fountain of Youth: It was said that this mystical spring is powerful enough to restore any commander to full health. However, every time I use it, my minions take every last drop! - Zirix Starstrider

Scion's Third Wish: The wisdom of the Scions originally brought power to the masses, then concentrated power in a single individual. Now, its power is ephemeral, appearing and then disappearing in one violent burst.

Hamon Bladeseeker: "Perhaps if I keep throwing daggers at him, Kaleos Senpai will notice me >.<"
- Asuka Hamon, Kaleos Xaan's "friend"

Astral Crusader: You may call him crazy, but if you spend half as much time near singularities as he has, you too would disregard all statistical reasoning.

Yeet, It's back baby

Rite of the Undervault - "Within the darkest depths of the Abyss lie the most terrifying of secrets, ones that even Blightcaster balks at hearing." - Blackwraithe, Abyssian Advisor

Maw - Although it may not be menacing once one has time to recognize its rather disarming nature, its furious attack often denies its cute disposition.

Holy Immolation - Victory, at all costs.

Ritual Banishing - Death, at all costs.

Bloodtear Alchemist - He blends the curving path of a tear and the violent one of blood together into brutal harmony. All for a low cost.

Shadow Watcher - "My eyes are up here, bud." Lys, Lyonar Sentinel, in battle

Deathfire Crescendo - "Can you hear it, horde? All your beautiful little deaths, putting the finishing touches on my symphony!" Silth, Abyssian Orchestral Conductor

Daemonic Lure - A whispering promise will lead even the most honorable cleric to the side of bandits.

I'm baaaaaaack.

Elucidator - "Magmar Genomancy has yielded some terribly frightening results."

Egg Morph - "It was unlike anything I had ever felt before... I felt a warmth. I felt small. I felt... unborn."

Windrunner - "I never actually saw the Windrunner. I just felt a brisk, warm breeze, and my sword seemed somehow lighter."

Wings of Paradise - "In the midst of the battle, the red angel of justice soared overhead, dashing the ground with streaks of cobalt lightning."

Bonereaper - "The 'Bonereapers' as the commoners call them, are amongst the oldest races of Mythron. Once regal and proud, an experiment from the Great Blooming left them... skeletal and outcast."

Sunsteel Defender - "A proud kingdom once, Sunstar fell to the Lyonar Kingdoms. With Sunstar gone - their king beheaded, the Palace Guard turned to a life of sellswording. So the Sunstar Guard, became the Sunsteel Company."

Putrid Dreadflayer - "Dreadflayers are from somewhere in the Extraverse. Their very presence is unsettling - the way they just float. They... don't belong here."

Sunset Paragon - "It was a thing of unparalleled beauty. The battle halted momentarily as the beast strode through the battlefield with great majesty. Then it stopped... looked at me - stared into my soul. And I knew I had to; I drew my dagger and pierced my heart. And for my last fleeting moments - I was happy."

Bloodletter - "On this day, you shall watch your hero bleed."

Wexx16h
Jaxi - Deadly suprise included!

Regalia - We were born without scales of our own, so we forged them from fire and sunsteel.

Holy Immolation - In the flames of justice you will find retribution.

Unstable Leviathan - May God have mercy on their souls because he sure won't.

Metamorphosis - Army of golems disappeared in a single moment.

Plasma Storm - "All that's weak must die" - Vaath

Keeper of the Vale - Life bloomed underneath its paws and decayed land became beautiful once again.

Adamantium claws - "Simple, yet incredibly effective" - Vaath

Mindsteal - "Some thoughts are too dangerous to have" - (that new Mag General)

Bounded Lifeforce - "My power is uncontainable" - Vaath

hylandpadLoremaster16h1
Astral Crusader - " I have traveled across the battlegrounds of the cosmos. I have seen centuries of conflict and loss. I have fought Gods and beasts born from light and darkness. I have watched worlds burn and stars fade. Taking your life won't weigh heavy on my soul."

Deathblighter - "People so often forget that the elemental plane is empathetic to our emotions and thoughts. Deathblighters are the accumulation of sorrow, anger, pain and loss made manifest. Emotions that powerful do not create weak spirits, young one."

Archon Spellbinder - "There's nothing under the hood; there's nothing in the robes. Spellbinders have long since left their bodies behind. They are little more than spirits, feeding off the latent energies that you and I leave in our wake."

Sun Elemental - "The sun crystal at the heart of the Solar Temple became blindingly radiant, filling the entire nave with light. The parishioners cried out, half in fear, half in exuberance as a figure of brilliance came into being atop the Altar."
I could be wrong though.
