The developers have been attempting to come up with quotes describing each of the factions. In particular we are interested in the impressions of both those who look favorably and unfavorably at each group.

At this time, we are accepting submissions for possible quotations. These quotations might later on be used in factional descriptions.

Besides your own quotes, feel free to come up with possible quotes said by the various factional leaders (Fuseli, Eltsina, Islo, and even Remy and Gilbert).

You may post such quotes to this thread.

The March Hare: "If you can't make it red....kill it."

Fuseli: "The Crimson Armada is a silver pike amidst a school of guppies."

Eltsina: "Wow, I need to get out more."

Islo: "Man.....I wish I wasn't dead."

On Red:

They're pretty much fascists. Well meaning ones, mind you, but totally controlled by their military. It worries me, sometimes, not knowing which cavalry is gonna come riding in.
- Anonymous Citizen, Shriebeck

Me? I'm a soldier doing his duty. There's a lot of mean characters out there who'd like nothing better than a shot at an undefended cargo plane, or a lonely skyland hopper. I'm here to make sure they don't find one.
- Airman Davis Freemer - BGII, Second Air Corps

There are those for whom the desire to preserve self is greater than the desire to preserve liberty. To them, I say simply rest easy, and know that not all are as you.
- Admiral Ignacious Fuseli, Address to the Faculty

On Blue:

Half the time you make a deal with one of them, and then three weeks later you get a call saying that he had to stop off to investigate this new dot on the radar that popped up, but don't worry, he'll deliver your cargo as soon as he gets the chance.
- Nadia Stokorov, Ficus Breeder, Arcadia

You fly and fly, buy fuel every now and then, fly some more, and then, every once in a while, you hit on something big. The rush from the big find, that's what it's all about. That, and the flying.
- Maurice DeLoche, Inventor, Kadath

When you keep a thought in your head, it dies. Ideas are like us, they need room to get out, to grow, to meet new ideas. And once they've met enough new ideas, once they've seen the world, then they can come back and actually make something happen that's worthwhile.
- Voyager Laurence Islo

On Green:

Why is it that they can never give you a straight answer? "I think it's a bad deal," would be fine, but they've always got to make themselves sound all mysterious and dark. News flash people - it's not funny anymore.
- Michael Roavi, Former Restaurateur, Gonk

I just know that I can trust a Guild courier. Can you believe that I actually had an independent shipper rip open a package that I left with him? The Guild, sure it might be a little more, but in my opinion the security and discretion are worth it.
- Alice Cassison, Seamstress, Romeo

My belief is that you should never expend a resource you don't have to. Some people prefer to tip the scales by adding weight. I prefer to slowly move the fulcrum. That way, when the competition has finally placed all of their weights, a mere pebble can tip the balance in my favor.
- Guildmistress Dasha Eltsina

(sorry Yellows, but I really have no idea what y'all are about.)

On Remy:

Who?
-Sam Foresster, Arcadia

Where are my keys? You! More grog!
Capt. Remy Sans-Barbe

On life in Skytopia?:

Y'know, I seen me a mermaid once. I even seen me a shark eat a octopus. But I ain't never seen no phantom Russian submarine.
- Watson


More sure to be coming later.

Sky's the limit. Unless Vernor Brown can get his work off the ground that is. Then who knows? Until then we, the descendants of nomads and scientists, will stick with blue as we push the frontiers of space and knowledge in our push to seize a brighter future for all.


Also, Z!, in a rather ironic twist many in Blue feel the same way towards a certain someone..

It just strikes me as something a red would say.

This quote strikes me as appropriately Blue. :blue:

Substitute "Faction" for "Nation"

Yellow is unrepresented for a number of reasons, mostly that we're not sure what's happening to our faction post-reset, but let me throw out some golden oldies:

"Education is not the answer to the question. Education is the means to the answer to all questions."
-- William Allin

"Getting things done is not always what is most important. There is value in allowing others to learn, even if the task is not accomplished as quickly, efficiently or effectively."
-- R.D. Clyde

"Education makes people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave."
-- Henry Peter Broughan

"The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts."
-- C. S. Lewis

These aren't fictional quotes, but they're food for thought for how a Flight School-driven faction might think and see the world.

I think this could easily double as the Blue anthem.

Yellow/FS4L: "Learning never ends. You just wake up one day and realize you are teaching, too."

Brown: "You can't take the sky from me." --the guy in the brown coat.

While I don't think this is representative of the current Red Faction, I did rather like it back before the game got all popular and stuff.

By killing the pilot of the undefended cargo plane, and the lonely skyland hopper, for "Treason".

"Why in Skytopia would I choose Blue? Well, people, do you see this hat? This hat, while pretentious, is not about pretention. It represents an intertwined history of all that I am and all that I wish to be. It is a growing, evolving history of myself and my bretheren. Any Blue can read another's hat. No hat is the same, but likewise all hats must follow the rules for hatmaking. That is to say, people, that this hat symbolises all that Blue stands for: Unity of our kind, one for another. Purpose, to show we have direction. History, to show where we have been. Order, that a society may have structure. Individuality, that each hat and wearer is different. And last but not least, Freedom, that none are forced to wear a hat, each chooses to wear it upon his or her head. No other nation is so rich, so vibrant, and so welcoming in it's philosophy than that of Blue"
- Captain Horatio Adventure, on lecture tour at Echo.
