Oppression Flavour Text
« on: June 20, 2015, 06:27:41 AM »
To add to those gone before, here's the flavour text from oppression cards. Note I haven't yet waited on every card to see if there's time delay text, will update once it's done. Also I know there's more coming (Resilient Slime at least) so I'll update then as well.

IW2013, Rise and Infestation Flavour Text: http://forum.lightmare.com.au/index.php?topic=20610.0

Order Flavour Text: http://forum.lightmare.com.au/index.php?topic=63560.0

Ancient Aggression Emblem: 'Rouse him, and learn the principle of his activity or inactivity. Force him to reveal himself, so as to find out his vulnerable spots.'
Assimilation Bot: An inbuilt plan B is never a bad idea.
Cloaked Operative: 'I said invisible, not invincible' - Tygris
Corrupted Celestial Dragon: The brightest light casts the longest shadow.
Counting the Days: If we but only stand, they will eventually fall.
Cowmmando: 'You can't milk those!'
Decimator: Blessed with the furor of Aberion himself.
Denial of Advancement:  'Without Advancement, they cannot grow.' - Sol
Denial of Flight: 'Without flight, they cannot flee.' - Sol
Denial of Force: 'Without Force, they cannot fight.' - Sol
Denial of Magic: 'Without magic, they cannot scheme.' - Sol
Denial of Reason:  'Without Reason, they cannot plan.' - Sol
Denial of Strength: 'Without strength, they cannot stand.' - Sol
Disruption Sphere: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Echo of the Battlefield: We honor the dead, and in return, they keep us from joining them.
Find your way: 'Not all who wander are lost.' - Ao Shun
Honorable Farewell: Gone but not forgotten.
Lance of Jinhai: The sages bowed to the angels from Solace, eager to take in their wisdom... but kept their spears ready.
Logrithmatron: Originally called The Exponinator, it was later renamed as Tygris insisted it was 'Too hard to say'
Monk of the Second Moon: Some monks have learned to project their spirits outwards to take temporary physical form.
Mysterious Box: Irial pressed the giant button on top of the strange device. She quickly learned to never do that again.
Oppress: 'We do not require respect, only obedience.' - Sol
Pillage the Village: With trade routes to Talich closed, some Flame Dawn troops have taken to more extreme scavenging.
Pit Brawler: Some prefer the consistancy of battle over the thrill of the hunt.
Proctul, the Sniper: The pink mist is easy to miss on the barren wastes of Talich.
Reborn: We don't all get a second chance, but the inability to die grants more opportunities than most.
Subdues the Meek: Also subdues most everything else.
Timely Strike: Given enough time, all vigils falter.
Tinker: We built this city on constant attentive iteration.
Tracks the Cowardly: The smell of fear lingers long after the prey have passed.
Two Face: 'We think two, might have been more, didn't stick around long enough to count' – Cloaked Operative
Vanguard of the Bond: From the womb to the grave, they are together. Fighting, eating, playing, dying.
Vis, the Furious: From the smallest embers grow mighty infernos.
Weaponize: With the right parts, anything can kill anything else.
Xi, who Honors the Many: Xi realized her place was with her people, if only it were that easy.

I like Disruption Sphere's flavour text best. Offers some explanation to why a supposedly physics–abiding artifact can deny non–physics–abilities, even if vague.

Tinker's flavour text made me think of Genesis Industries as a software being constantly patched. "Patch Note 1047, City Version 143.42.6: Increased Goods and Services Tax from 10% to 11%."

Denial of Surprise is the only Denial card without flavor text.

"Without surprise, they cannot surprise."

Or maybe "SURPRISE, MOTHERPUFF-ack, arg, MY SPLEEN!!"
