pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Bloodthirsty_01 We are gathered for a battle. But I want a slaughter! I want all our enemies dead, dismembered and fed to the carrion birds! Nothing else will do today! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Bloodthirsty_02 I have little taste for sake unless it is flavoured with the blood of my mortal enemies! Today, I expect to drink heartily! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Bloodthirsty_03 I want the heavens stained red with our foes' blood before I rest! Any man who kills and kills again will earn my favour! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Brave_01 You are soldiers under my command, so for you great deeds are as common as mice! Today, though, is a day for uncommon bravery! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Brave_02 Among our people I am thought courageous! This is a notable thing, for you are brave men! Today, you will show the enemy what brave men can do! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Brave_03 It is not in a warrior's nature to boast, so I say this: I am thought brave, but I do not need my courage today! I command an army of tigers! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Drunkard_01 This is going to be a battle, men. I think you may have already worked that out. I did earlier, which is why I'm talking to you now. So, where was I? Yes, a battle. We must drink, oh, fight that sorry lot. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Drunkard_02 I am famous because of my powerful thirst for sake, it is true! I drink to your health now, and I will drink to our victory later! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Drunkard_03 Will you all STAND STILL! Good. I am pleased to see that I command twice as many men as I was expecting. You are all fine warriors, but WHERE'S MY SAKE? URRRRPPPP! Sorry. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Mad_01 This is unfortunate! I was hoping to fight the enemy when the Moon was high in the heavens. So beautiful, the Moon. And so bright, burning bright, in so many eyes… True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Mad_02 Some have called me mad! They have not lived long after saying such things! The enemy call me mad, you know. Cruel men, and most unnatural. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Mad_03 Despite what you have heard, I am not deranged. If I was, I would not be in command. I am entirely and completely sane. There is no doubt about that. None. Ever. At all. So, are the flying monkeys ready? Is all prepared? True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Mad_Grief_01 So, a battle. Do not hold me back, for I wish nothing more than than to join my loved ones. Oh, to see a blossom float on the water once again… My apologies. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Mad_Grief_02 O Spirits! Grant me victory or grant me death! I care not for myself, but I would have victory for my loyal warriors! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Mad_Grief_03 To be a samurai is to accept death, to live as though already dead! Today, I will seek out death, for my spirit is empty. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Ashigaru_General_01 Men, men, men... this will not be an easy fight! No battle is ever easy, but I would not have dishonesty between us. So, let's to it. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Ashigaru_General_02 I am a common man made great, I admit, by events. This battle will make you great men if you let it, if you win it. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Ashigaru_General_03 I will not flatter you with soft words, my brother warriors. There are enemies, and they are dangerous. But you are more dangerous! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Legendary_01 I have seen many battles! And now I prepare for one more. This is good, for I would have a purpose in my life, and in yours! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Legendary_02 I have spoken many times before battle. It is important that we all understand what is to happen, and work as one. So: listen! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Legendary_03 Once again, I face battle, and in the company of good, honest soldiers. No matter what happens next, I treasure that thought. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Loyal_01 Over the years, many men have noted my devotion to our clan. I am proud of it, and I am proud of you, my soldiers! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Loyal_02 I do not boast, but I am a loyal man to my clan and my friends. So I say now: any man who fights with proper devotion today will be my friend! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Loyal_03 All battles are a test of loyalty: to one's comrades, to one's clan, to yourself. This one will be no different. Be ready for that test! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Master_Swordsman_01 A battle begins simply: a man draws a sword. What he does next determines his fate, the fate of his comrades, the fate of his clan. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Master_Swordsman_02 It is time to draw the sword! It will not be sheathed until it has drawn blood! So it is with an army: we will not stop until we have drawn blood! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Master_Swordsman_03 A general must know how to use a sword, for it teaches him how to use an army. I promise you now: any blow I make will be precise, and will hurt the enemy! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Poet_01 I take up the sword. When will I set it aside? Spring will come again. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Poet_02 I am not a warrior, but a thinker. Do not imagine this makes me weak, or unwilling to strive for a victory! Together, we will achieve great things! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Poet_03 There are times when a moment of calm can achieve much. A moment when the soul must have quiet. Before a battle is one of those times. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Warrior_01 You all know that I am a practical man, a warrior suited to battle, not to ceremony! So: I give you foes to slay! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Warrior_02 This is a day for fighting, not for show. Do your best and I, your comrade in arms, promise you a victory. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Intro_Trait_Skill_Warrior_03 Whenever I face battle, I do two things: I empty my bowels, and I inspect my sword. I am, at heart, a practical man, and I advise you to be the same! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_01 Our foes laugh at our honest, plain, Chosokabe ways. How many will still be laughing when they have felt the sting of our arrows? Now, attack! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_02 Warriors! Our foes call us simple, and think we lack wits! I say we lack nothing, except perhaps their heads as trophies! Who is with me? True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_03 When we have taken the foes' heads, shall we match wits with them? Or shall we bask in honour, and tell of our victory today? True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_04 I pray that there are enough enemies for us all to gain honour! Chosokabe! Form on me, and let us have victory! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_05 Stand with me, Chosokabe warriors, stand with me! Together we are invincible, as powerful as the winter storm, as fleet as an arrow! Now, prepare! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_06 I have prayed for a Chosokabe victory today. I know the gods have heard me, and given me brave men to lead in battle! Now, forwards! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_07 Chosokabe warriors! Today we fight for our clan and for our honour. Have no fear: our actions today will be glorious! Now, to arms! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_08 Our foes will have cause to fear the name of Chosokabe after today. Their widows will weep anew whenever our clan is named! Now, prepare! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_09 Today we do not need to read any "Art of War". We are the fighting Chosokabe, and we will cut down our enemies for victory. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Chosokabe_10 Our foes mock us as simpletons and bumpkins. I say let them! When we are done, they will find Chosokabe arguments most compelling! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_01 Our enemies are ruled by fear! Warriors, we need only advance beneath our banners, and they will run! Draw your swords! And obey orders! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_02 Obedience without question is our strength! Fear of our clan, the great Date, is their weakness! Knowing these simple truths, we will triumph today! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_03 Today's enemies are not be feared, or considered fit opponents for you. They are not Date clan, and that is enough to condemn them as worthless! Now, prepare! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_04 Our reputation is enough to unman our enemies! They see our Date banners, and they tremble! How many blows will it take to despatch such cowards? True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_05 Stand proud, sons of the Date! Our enemies shake at the sight of us! Now, let duty be your watchword, and show them why they fear us! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_06 Sons of the Date! Let us treat our foes with all due respect. That is: none at all! Cut them down like so many beasts! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_07 Let their widows weep for a thousand years after we are done! Any enemy who thinks of this day should tremble when they think of our rage! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_08 We of the Date clan march below a proud banner! Our enemies rightly fear us, and that fear works for us! Now, forwards! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_09 Even now, fear does its work in the souls of our enemies. They are right to fear us, for we march beneath the Date banner! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Date_10 Men of the Date clan, our enemies are yonder! Allow them a moment to cleanse their souls, then send them all to heaven! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_01 Men of the Hattori clan! Our enemies await! Ha! Let us hope our swords are sharp, for I would not want them to suffer as they die! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_02 Hattori! Stand ready! Now has the hour of destiny come! We face enemies with some courage, but no real honour. They will die dishonoured! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_03 Hattori warriors! Prepare yourselves, but do not waste thought on your foes. They are without honour: nothing but a rabble of farmers and merchants. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_04 Warriors, stand ready! Now is the moment to prove that Hattori courage is not lacking, and that all should fear our might! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_05 I am proud of our Hattori banner! Our clan is worthy of loyalty! You are worthy of loyalty! And I will give you victory today! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_06 We will turn this place into a charnel house, a tomb for our enemies and their ignoble ambitions! They will learn to fear the Hattori today! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_07 When we are done today, all men will understand that we Hattori are to be feared and respected in equal measure! This I swear on my honour! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_08 Your enemies are shaking, my brave Hattori! Your name alone is enough to terrify them! They are no better than old women and sickly children! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_09 Now, my brave Hattori, fear does its work among our foes! They know our name! They know what we can do! It makes them weak! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hattori_10 When we Hattori are finished today, we will not raise a monument to the enemy dead. Why should be help celebrate fools? They should flee! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_01 Warriors, stand ready! This is the day to prove that we Hojo are fearsome enemies and mighty warriors, worthy of the name we defend. True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_02 Sons of the Hojo, be proud! Let the mighty name we defend today be our strength! Let the enemy tremble! Soon, they die! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_03 This is not a day for seeking glory! It is enough we fight for victory, and Hojo honour. Glory I leave for others today! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_04 We Hojo have a proud heritage. We build: we make the world better. Our foes, however, are destroyers and despoilers. So today, we destroy them! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_05 When we are done today, who will raise a memorial to the enemy dead? I fear for their souls as they face you, Hojo warriors! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_06 Hojo warriors! Remember there is greatness in your souls, as there is greatness in the lord we serve! Now, hold to that, and strike hard! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_07 I hear our opponents call us "old fashioned" and "yesterday's men". Well, if loyalty is outmoded among to them, they deserve death! Who is with me? True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_08 The Hojo banner flies above me, and in my heart is only quiet pride to serve our clan with men like you. We shall triumph here! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_09 I ask only this: do your duty to our clan. If you do that, then we Hojo will win battle after battle. Now, let us begin! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Hojo_10 So it has come to this: battle, but against a foe almost worthy of the Hojo. If each does his part, then victory is ours! True

pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_01 Our enemies have fear in their hearts. We Mori are rightly famous for our cunning, no bad thing in warriors! Our foes know this, and they falter! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_02 Cunning in war is a good thing! It is just as important to advance on your foe and cut him down! Show no mercy today! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_03 Our foes call us deceitful, liars and worse! Well, there is truth in this: they will die in this place, at Mori hands! Prepare yourselves! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_04 We Mori have a reputation as cunning warriors! This is good. Already, our enemies are eaten up with worry. We have already defeated them! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_05 All that we need do is go and kill our enemies. When the moment comes, put aside cunning: strike hard and true! Now, be steadfast! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_06 Now, brave Mori, why be honest with a foe when trickery will lay him low? Remember that cunning is as sharp as any sword! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_07 Our enemies fear us! And they are right to do so! We Mori are sea-raiders, cunning, and brave beyond measure! They tremble! We-- we slaughter! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_08 Now, proud warriors, show them what kind of men we Mori are! We are hardened by wind and wave, stone and fire! We go to fight! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_09 We Mori are famed for fighting at sea, but we can fight and be victorious anywhere. If we invaded the clouds, we would conquer them! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Mori_10 Mori warriors! I will use every stratagem I know to give us victory. I expect you to fight like demons in return! Now, prepare yourselves! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_01 I will kill any man I see who holds back! The Oda clan will not remain strong if we entertain womanish ways! Now: kill them! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_02 Advance the banners of our clan! Let our foes see it is the Oda who come to slay them! Let them quail as we approach! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_03 Raise the Oda banner! It is a proud flag, the envy of our dishonoured foes. I am priviledged to fight beside you in its shadow! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_04 There is no prouder boast than "I am a soldier of the Oda clan". Our strength and honour will be proved again, here, today. Prepare! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_05 Why should we Oda give our foes anything other than the blade's edge? Today, let us be cruel in defence of our clan! Make ready! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_06 Today we bow to no man, for we are the Oda! We will fight bravely, like tigers, because that is who we are! Now, prepare yourselves! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_07 I have no words for cowards: I do not need them! You are Oda warriors, and cowardice is not your way. So I wish you victory! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_08 Warriors, you fight the Oda banner entrusted to us by our daimyo! There is no greater honour, so make sure your courage is equally great! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_09 Now, Oda Warriors, cheer, and put shame into the hearts of our foes! They follow a lesser lord than us, and that makes them weak! True
pre_battle_speeches_text_S2_PBS_Quip_Clan_Oda_10 Our worth lies in our name as Oda warriors. We have nothing to fear and no equals in strength. Now go, confident of victory! True
