Default Dominions II T-Shirt Contest

For all you Dom 2 Fans! To kick off the opening of our branded store at Cafe Press ( Gamers Front Branded Store ) we are running a "Cool Saying" T-Shirt Contest. Go to the store and you can see what we are doing: The Dom 2 Logo on the front of the T-Shirt and the Cool Saying on the back.

Here are the rules:

1. You can enter as many sayings as you wish. Just do it all in one post. If you think of new sayings edit your post. Number reach saying as:
1. Blah
2. Blah, blah
3. Blah, blah, blah
Non-Numbered sayings will not be considered. (By numbering your entry(s) you are saying this is an entry - rather than just a post).

2. Post here in this topic. Posts outside this topic will not be accepted.

3. By posting a saying here you agree to let Shrapnel Games, Inc. use your saying for promotional purposes and profit.

4. Posting must be done between now and April 30, 2004. Sayings posted after April 30th will not be considered.

Default Re: Dominions II T-Shirt Contest

Well, I adore Latin quotations, so here's a few slogans in that dead language.

1. Benedictus qui venit in nomine Dominions
(A pun on "Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini" - "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. So, in other words: "Blessed is he who comes in (wearing) the name of Dominions.")

2. Est deus in nobis.
("There is a god inside us.")

3. Vae victis!
("Woe to the conquered.")

Other suggestions:

4. Pretend!
5. Hoburg Hero.
6. My other prophet is an ice devil.
7. I fought the game and the game won.
8. Hoburg Hero For Hire
9. Hoburg Hero In Training
10. R'Lyeh does it deeper

11. Bloodslave Inspector
12. Maenads have more fun
(One for Arryn?)
13. Genuine Shroud of the Battle Saint(tm) Wear
14. Warning! Precision 5 Fire Mage
15. Warning! Wearer is horror marked. Keep away from astral flames, twin spears, Tartarian gates, summoning chambers, tantric sex, powerful thunderstorms, dimensional rifts, haunted castles,etheral creatures, magic laboratories, strange vortexes in the ether, mysterious, hooded strangers, supernatural menaces and fortune tellers.
16. Horror marks kill. Don't drink and divine.
17. Will work for world domination.
18. Maenad talent scout
19. I used to have a life, but I managed to trade it in for a Barrel of Air, fourteen earth gems and two clockwork horrors.

20. Real Black Templars starch their underwear.
21a) My belongs to Great Mother
21b) My belongs to Allfather
22. I sacrificed 40 bloodslaves, and all I got was this bloody T-shirt.
23. I brake for succubi.
24. Succubi susceptible
25. Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go to Pangaea
26. Do you have pretensions?
27. Sidhe Champion. (If you can read this, my god has wasted 17 resources and 140 gold.)
28. Kiss me. I'm a pretender.
29. Ssssh! I'm hunting bwood slaves.

30. Oh my me!

And a few from the bible:

31. To me belongeth vengeance and recompence
32. I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
33. The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
34. To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
35. For it is the day of the LORD's vengeance, and the year of recompences

36. I inflame the hearts of hundreds of thousands, and ponder greatly upon the gods.

Then a couple from Lovecraft:

37. I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow death and madness...
38. That is not dead which can eternal lie ; And with strange aeons even death may die
39. Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.

40. The stars are right!

41. I WILL NOT BE DENIED!
42. Over 1080 unique units and we still mod!
43. Who need high fantasy? We've got mythology.
45. The only strategy game with troll knights riding mooses.
46. Real gods play turn-based.

This one is probably a bit too provocative to some people, but I like it:
47. Yahweh would have played Dominions.

48. Odin, Dahzdebog, Jupiter, Lugh, Ishtar, Osiris, Kukulcan, Zevs ... and you.
49. Have you vanquished the heathens today?
50. Bringing divinity to Origins

There - that's a round fifty, I think I'll stop now.

Just ... one ... more...

51. I selected Luck +3, but all I got was this T-shirt.

And a few more. (Assuming the competition is still open out the 30tieth)

52. 1100 units, 400 spells, 400 magic sites, 250 magic items, 17 nations - 1 victor.
53. 1100 units, 400 spells, 400 magic sites, 250 magic items, 17 nations and you get to be a god.
54. The game for strategy gods.
55. Turn-based godhood.

Then there's one that isn't in the bible, but ought have been (although using that one would probably include royalties):

- "And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

And one that would have been great, but is under copyright:

Oh yes I'm the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I play the game but to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone

1. Today this province, tomorrow the World.
2. I'm Immortal.
3. Wisdom, Ironwill and Knowledge are mine.
4. Get Fantasy, let your mind dream.


I can advice a shirt for each Nation, with the figure too of a typycal soldier of that Army in the back?
This perhaps could cost a little more to have someone drawing the figures and to print them on shirts, but they'll be far more cooler.

Default Re: Dominions II T-Shirt Contest

My favorite kind of contest!

1. WARNING: This game is dangerously addictive. It is NOT suitable for students, interns, apprentices,
or anyone else who is expected to pass tests on a regular basis. Do not
think about Dominions strategys while operating heavy machinery. The
demo has built-in protections which should not be bypassed. They are for
your health as much as for monetary reasons. Do not begin on the full
Version without first making arrangments for someone to check on you
daily. If you find that your game has continued for more than 36 hours
straight then you should consult a physician immeadiately (Do NOT show
him the game!)

(1. should be typed in text which gradually gets smaller with each line down)


2.
In Dominions, if it looks like a killer strategy
then look at it again carefully.
In Dominions, if it looks like a total waste
then look at it again carefully.

3. What we do every day Pinkie, try to take over the world.

4. My pretender can beat up your pretender.

5. AWARD WINNING STRATEGY GAME
(joystick addicts need not apply)


6.
Me: Some play to win or lose. Others just to stay in the game.
Them: Are we talking about games? Or about life in general?
Me: Exactly.

7. It's for my Cult Leader resume.

8. I am their leader and they love me.

9. The best game I never bought off the shelf.

10. When I have this game completely beat,
I will teach you how.
(talk to me a year from now)

11. The Ascension is yours!
(some assembly required)

12. They dont think Im a god!
(but we are working on that)

13. A Windows, Linux, Mac OS-X, Solaris Multi-Player game of Domination.
(this is NOT your daddy's Chess game)

14. Strategy Games?!? You cant HANDLE a strategy game!

15. There can only be Juan.
Hail Juan!
