  • Keeper of the Light dialogue suggestion

    I am a huge fan of Keeper of the Light and I am also thrilled to see he is currently in the alpha stage. If even one of these quotes make it in I'd be happy.

    I imagined Keeper's voice to pretty much have Ian Mckellen's voice (Gandalf/Magneto) - Serious and powerful but sometimes unexpectedly funny.

    Also, like the wc3 incarnation, I think it would be suitable to have the occasional neighing and whinnying of the horse he rides in some of the quotes. I did have some quotes that referenced the horse but I took them out, although I will say I liked the name 'Ignis' for his horse in memory of his old ultimate Ignis Fatuus.

    I know there is an overabundance to light reference (what did you expect?) but the idea is to choose which of them to keep and which to discard. Some lines are from poetry (Shadow Fiend's rival quote is from The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe) and some are pop culture, movie and television references.
    I have also omitted any basic responses like 'yes/thanks/denied'

    I appreciate all feedback and am willing to add and make changes for a complete list.

    Without further ado:

    Why, finally this man is given some place under the sun. And most of the suggested dialogue actually looks quite suitable, aside from most of his rivalry lines and Mana Leak, those don't seem to make a whole lot of sense, but if we compare that to a couple of already existing heroes...

    Aside from that, we should probably consider that Valve tends to care about hero lore much more now, and the old days when heroes were hurricanes of puns are slowly fading away. Still, it doesn't hurt to try, I guess. Most of those - I wouldn't mind seeing them in the game. At all.



    And, while we're at it... I did do a fan lore for KotL, in the end. And there was some dialogue there, too. So... I decided to post some of those here as well. Mindless self advertisemnt, tell me whatever you want.

    I don't mean to steal the spotlight. Mainly because your suggested lines are... quite superior. But, still.
    Moving
    Slightly faster.
    Light, as a feather.
    I carry my light through day and night.
    A shining pace.
    Far over the rainbow.
    Around the ellipse.
    Let my lantern light the path.
    An enlightened soul.
    A leading light.

    Attacking
    Blighted creature!
    A light upon your wrongness!
    You asked for it.
    Cover your eyes.
    In the light of the situation!..
    I'll be going rough then.
    Creature of the gloom, I bring your doom!

    Cast Order:
    Not even remotely out of oil.
    I'll be in the spotlight.


    Casting Mana Leak:
    And now I advise you not to move.
    Why, you dropped something.
    Let's face the situation lightly.
    In light of the situation, you should just stay still.

    Casting Chakra Magic:
    Your light shines brighter.
    All the better, all the better.

    Casting Spirit Form:
    A higher order of daylight!
    The Sun Bringer!
    Doubt not the one who sees the true light!
    I bring the light, for I am the light!
    Behold the new dawn!

    Casting Recall:
    Follow the guiding light!
    Follow the lantern!
    I guide the path!
    Lost no longer!
    Lights of the big world!

    Recall Interrupted:
    No! We lost them!
    My guiding light could not sustain it.
    Walk to the lights, walk to the lights- oh, sparkles.
    Could I not solve this one perplexion!

    Killing:
    Bright, shiny, just a little bit dead.
    Tell you what, you died enlightened.
    Exposed to the mighty sun.
    Can you feel the sunshine?
    Your light becomes dim.
    Not normally my task, but... Ho-ho.

    Killing a Rival:
    You are but a deceptive refraction.
    All that glitters is not gold. It may actually be my property.
    Bounty Hunter, I send you to heaven's bounty.
    Shadow Demon. Just think of the name.
    Give me a reason not to evaporate this malicious gloom.
    Fade to your Abysm, and never come back.
    As soon as I first saw you, I knew we would end up on one battlefield.
    Night Stalker, I am, for one, introducing you to the real light of sun. And not the gloomy shining you were afraid of.
    Stop whining - accept the change!
    And don't even touch the rooster.
    Chen, true enlightment does not equal zealous fanaticism.
    Phoenix, you're out, like a light.
    Phoenix, my candle outlives your flame.
    Let's look at Phoenix in a new light.
    Laser beams are but a cheap imitation of the true beaming rays of burning sun I just evaporated you with!
    Charge your laser, and then we'll see.
    Whatever form you take during the full moon, a good ray of sunlight turns you into a particularly dead man.

    Dying:
    Dead... light... district.
    I see the light... at the end of the tunnel.
    I'll follow the guiding lantern...
    I step... into gloomy shadows.
    Grim darkness.
    Never again I see the light of day.
    Out like a light.
    Blown, like a candle.
    In death, still light-hearted.
    Light, weight.
    The lights are calling me... home...
    An endless night consumes us all.
    My heart no longer radiates.
    Dead sun chronicles...
    Dawn... fall.
    Punch the lights out, hit the pavement.

      Thankyou for the feedback 1337_n00b, I enjoyed reading through your list, I've listed my favourites with some comments:

      In (the) light of the situation, you should just stay still. - I would remove 'the', but more to the point than my mana leak dialog

      Behold the new dawn! - I think this one better suits respawn.

      Lost no longer! - To the point

      Also I really like the idea of Recall interruption lines

      No, We lost them! - Changes 'him' to 'them' and also with 'No' thrown in to make the situation sound more dire

      Bright, Shiny, just a little bit dead - This got a laugh from me, great line.

      You are but a deceptive refraction - This sounds good, but who is it with reference to?

      Chen, true enlightment does not equal zealous fanaticism - Good line with spelling correction (sorry couldn't help it)

      And don't even touch the rooster - This is a great funny line, I assume it's a quote for Nightstalker

      Laser beams are but a murky imitation of the true beaming rays of the burning sun I just evaporated you with! - Great line, the word evaporated is a great word to describe what you would imagine would happen getting hit by Illuminate, I would change the word murky to either feeble or cheap.

      An endless night consumes us all. - Sounds very dire, a great line

          I always wished that KotL would say his own name in a long and wavy old man's (~Gandalf sounding) voice.

          KeepeEeEeEeEr of the LiIiIiIghght

          This is how my friends and I would always say his name. Fucken hilarious. Especially considering how useless that hero was - after someone would pick him and feed we would say his name in the wavy, old man, Gandalf voice and laugh our asses off.

            There needs to be a hero who only speaks in puns.

              You know what's funny is that I imagined him saying it the exact same way!

                Well, shucks. This, was noticed by a Valve employee.

                Makes me want him even harder than ever. Thanks for the feedback, though.

                "You are but a deceptive refraction" refers to the Templar Assassin. Since she is quite a pain in the grass for the old man.

                Now, I kind of forgot to say that, but both win and defeat lines look quite weird. I have absolutely no idea why'd he say that he'll save a replay.


                And the last but not the least, while imagining him say his name in that voice did crack me up quite a little, I'd actually like it better if he would sound much younger than he looks like. For some reason, I really want Hal Robins to voice him...


                There needs to be a hero who only speaks in puns.
                Tiny and QoP are close runnerups.

                  '- I'm keeping this replay' is a play on the word keep as in keeper of the light. I guess it is a pretty weak reference, unless enough emphasis is placed on 'keep'
