Heh. We had one really memorable line from a Kingdom game a couple weeks ago. (New game with a Kickstarter here
if you're interested.)
Milos is the governor of the city who's always been indecisive and rather feckless. When one of the major noble houses of the city goes into rebellion, though, he finally finds his spine, goes out with his army, and pounds them into paste. Afterward, the dead rebel's two oldest surviving sons are dumped on their knees in front of him in his throne room...
He told them coldly, "I am giving you a chance to save your family's lives." He paused to let that sink in, and a shocked silence spread through the court. Then he said, "Swear eternal and abject fealty to me now, and instruct all your father's followers to do the same." He looked to the elder son. "Now, please."
The young man stammered, "What assurance do we have that-" Milos quelled him with a single glance, then looked expectantly to the younger son, still in his teens.
This one said earnestly, "We and all our house pledge our undying fealty to you forever, Governor!" Milos nodded. "Congratulations. Your family will live, and you have just inherited the title."
At this point, the court began emitting a shocked buzz of talk, mostly to the effect of, "Can he really do that?!"
Milos gazed around the room with authority, and it fell silent. He stated, "Nonsense. The second son always inherits if the first son is dead. ... I prefer to think of this as mercy."
"All right, I am not the Shadow. You have nothing at all to worry about. Except, oh, wait, I'm pointing a gun at you."
