I recall seeing the slander "surfs in Nebraska". Can anybody confirm this was in a version of the original, or was I playing a game with a modded slander file? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 05:59, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
I think you had a modded slander file. I edited the slanders.lie file a long time ago and never saw that phrase. It's not too surprising--the manual tells you how to mod the slanders.Peyre (talk) 18:58, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
If the player was not caught in his slanderous actions, then the slander would start with "Someone said that [player's name]" ... followed by one of the 40 phases below, which are moddable by editing the SLANDERS.LIE file:
◾ LIKES to wear tights. ◾ has the manners of a Viking! ◾ drinks canal water! ◾ coins slanders like a mint. ◾ thinks the world is ROUND! [though this is historically inaccurate] ◾ is the son of siblings! ◾ would sell his Ma for a Fl. [Florin] ◾ spreads vicious lies! ◾ is a heathen scoundrel! ◾ is a rot-eating bastard! ◾ is an eater of worms! ◾ practices sorcery! ◾ is an amoral cad! ◾ sleeps with servants! ◾ is a reckless libertine! ◾ SUCKS! ◾ is a REAL pocket fisherman! ◾ has a nasty, fishlike smell. ◾ is an instrument of Eeevil! ◾ is a pestilent knave! ◾ is subtle and treacherous! ◾ is a pickel brain. [typo in original] ◾ is a botchers apprentice! [typo in original] ◾ is a pagan Heretic! ◾ a muddy mettled rascal. ◾ is gross and fat as butter. ◾ is heir to a mongrel bitch! ◾ is a WITCH! BURN'EM! [typo in original] ◾ has hairy palms. ◾ is a big goof! ◾ is a bubou on a yak's ass! [typo in original] ◾ bathes regularly! ◾ stuffs his codpiece! ◾ is TOO friendly with animals. ◾ is a Momma's boy. ◾ traffics with Lawyers! ◾ is a Genoese bastard. ◾ plots betrayal with Turks! ◾ traffics with the Deviiil! ◾ is a harlot's son!
If the player was caught in the act of slander, then the player's name would be revealed.
I really don't think the search term "Machiavelli The Prince" should redirect to this page. I suspect that the fast majority of people who search for that phrase are looking for the work of political theory, not the 1990s video game. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:26, 21 December 2010 (UTC)
I doubt they are using that specific phrasing to find the political work, whereas the people looking for the game certainly are. — LlywelynII 23:48, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
