Is it me...
« on: July 24, 2003, 09:11:48 pm »

...or do the Kohr-Ah have the best lines in this game?  They are so straightforward and direct; I love it.  

My favorites:

You: Surrender or we will destroy you!
Kohr-Ah: Over five thousand races have made such a claim.  We survived.  They did not.  Nor shall you.

You:  Surrender or die!
Kohr-Ah:  Our counter to your statement is simpler: Just die.

You: You attacked us before and we survived!  You cannot destroy us!  Submit!
Kohr-Ah.  We did.  You did.  Yes we can.  No.

Pretty confident bugs.   Grin

What can I say that you've not already said? They're incredibly calm and unshakeable under any situation, which makes them very cool. The whole, genocidal-slaughter-in-the- name-of-galactic-peace thing aside.

Well, I'd be remiss to neglect mentioning that they do lose their cool when you approach the Sa-Matra. Then again, I'm pretty sure any human religious zealot would be pretty darn annoyed if some pesky monkeys tried to desecrate a religious artifact of theirs.

Religious artifact, nothing--imagine if you were a fanatical religious zealot and the monkeys were messing with something which was not only a religious artifact, but also a nuclear weapon.  I can imagine that would cause some trouble.  Smiley

A religious nuclear weapon? That'd give the term holy fire a whole new meaning...

Perhaps it's that basic contradiction in the Kohr-Ahs nature that make their lines so great. You expect single-minded fanatics to be emotional and passionate. Contrary to the stereotype, you get calm and coldly rational replies.

Their punishment is quick and easy... no need to put any fluff in there about emotion or desires or anything like that.  They give you the facts, they kick you in the pants.  Quite an effective way to be a killing machine.

And They're compassionate too; they give you time to perform whatever death rituals your culture might have.  Of course, our death rituals are: "Red Alert!  Battle stations!"

the Kohr Ah also talk as double as the Kzer Za about the "why do u do this thing" statment

my favourite is
"We are the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah.
Our nature, the fulfillment of our fate
requires your destruction."

besides, I like the kohrah the most because it's the best speech in the game

the kzerza speech is long... slow... and slow......................
I usually ending reading the subtitles before it talks the first word


the arilou\dnyarri\syreen are also good speeches the others are ok but the Slylandro Probe speech is the worst

Laugh. I'm have got to use that in conversation some time. That's one of the funniest things I've heard in a while.
