Donald lines and ghost lines for Gozag and Qazlal

I've been playing with the new gods in experimental...won with a HOGl of Qazlal and incurred the wrath of Gozag with my current DrCj. Donald could use some new lines to appropriately mock worshippers of these new gods, and ghosts who worshipped these gods need lines as well.

Here's a couple to get things started.

Donald, to a Gozag worshipper:
"The dungeon has become way too commercialized. I hate that."
"Thanks for bringing me all that money. You won't be needing it any longer."

Donald, to a Qazlal worshipper:
"How do you sleep with those constant thunderstorms all around you?"
"I came down here to get away from bad weather."

Ghost of a Gozag worshipper:
"In the end, my riches couldn't save me."
"I see the greed in your eyes...believe me, it will be your doom!"

For dead Gozagites:

"Business!" cries @the_monster@, wringing @possessive@ hands. "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!"

Re: Donald lines and ghost lines for Gozag and Qazlal

Dead Gozag:
@the_monster@ cries, "Now my invisible hand shall regulate the dungeon!"

Dead Qazlal:
@the_monster@ booms, "A force of nature cannot be stopped by the affairs of mortals!"

Donald to Qazlal:
"I'd get out my umbrella, but my socks always get sopping wet anyway. I hate that."
"Clouds of dust? Inconsiderate to those with allergies, I see."
"What do you do when you call for a natural disaster, and it happens a country over? They're hard to predict, you know."
"Choosing Qazlal was a disaster, if you ask me."
"Can you make a tsunami to engulf the Shoals in? I'd like that."

Donald to Gozag:
"But you've never actually SEEN a free market, have you?"
"My last three shields of reflection didn't work, and I couldn't get a refund due to a loophole. I hate capitalism."
"You know, there are better ways to make money that don't involve auctioning the Orb of Zot to the highest bidder."
"Sorry, but I'm incorruptible. I hate bribes."
"Does Gozag care about you, or about your money?"

Donald to Qazlal:
@the_monster@ says "Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it."
@the_monster@ says "Everybody complains about the weather, and you're just making things worse."
@the_monster@ says "I'd offer to go with you, but I'm kinda a fair weather friend."
@the_monster@ says "Wanna work with me? You obviously aren't a fair weather friend."
@the_monster@ groans, saying "Could you turn it down? I was trying to sleep."
@the_monster@ covers his ears.
@the_monster@ says "Would it kill you to be a bit quieter? I could hear you from three branches away."

Donald to Gozag:
@the_monster@ says "Greed is chaotic evil."
@the_monster@ asks "Who cares about John Galt?"
@the_monster@ says "You show me a capitalist, and I'll show you a bloodsucker."
@the_monster@ says "I've got a ring of see invisible on, but I still can't find that hand."
@the_monster@ grins, saying "To exist is to be something. I'm going to show you the alternative."
@the_monster@ shouts "Workers of the world, unite!"

Dead Gozag:
@the_monster@ cries, "Who is John Galt?"
@the_monster@ says "Greed is chaotic good."
@the_monster@ says "It's in your enlightened self interest to run away now."
@the_monster@ shouts "A equals A!"
@the_monster@ shouts "Prepare to die, parasite!"
@the_monster@ proclaims "No gods or kings: only Gozag."
@the_monster@ says "I am the man who loves his unlife."
@the_monster@ says "I swear by my unlife I will never live for another man."
@the_monster@ says "Kill yourself, would you kindly?"
@the_monster@ starts to speak, and goes on for several hours before remembering how to stop.

Re: Donald lines and ghost lines for Gozag and Qazlal

I am not really sure Gozag = Ayn Rand is canon, cptwinky.

e: also, on a more serious note, I think it's probably a good idea to avoid politics in general. For one thing, Crawl has an international player base, and a political joke that sings in the US is likely to fall totally flat in Australia or Europe. But for another, more important reason, I think it's a good idea if Crawl's flavor is anodyne and inoffensive, as it's a relatively unimportant part of the game that works best when we can all let it recede into the background.

I actually tried to avoid having the lines go full on "eyen rand sucks", but I guess you're right.
