Catchphrases for death cleric


Hi, I play deathcleric. Inspired with mexican celebration of deaths so she has flowers, butterflies, glitters,... and a morbid sense of humor...
So I'm seeking catchphrases for her. They have to be around death, grave, postmortem living. Nothing about undeads.
Thanks for anything.

Upon returning from 0 hp: "Death is overrated."
Describing a monster to the party: "It's not as dead as I would like it to be."
Taunting an NPC: "Relax. I'm not gonna do anything unnatural, I'm just going to kill you."
After raising a party member from the dead: "You were a lot more interesting when you were a corpse."
Charging into battle: "Come on men, let's make our tombstones worth reading!"

If you are doing a more Mexican Day of the Dead themed, try these quotes from Coco and a few other places

“Seize your moment.”

He’s been forgotten. When there’s no one left in the living world who remembers you, you disappear from this world. We call it the Final Death.
“Our memories, they have to be passed down by those who knew us in life – in the stories they tell about us.”
“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
“You don’t’ have to forgive him, but we shouldn’t forget him.”
“One cannot deny who one is meant to be.”
“The rest of the world may follow the rules, but I must follow my heart.”
“Never name a street dog. They’ll follow you forever.”
“Be careful what you chase after."
“The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.”
“Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.”
Death smiles at us all; all a man can do is smile back.’"
“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
“The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.”
“We never bury the dead, son. We take them with us. It's the price of living.”
“The dead cannot cry out for justice. It is a duty of the living to do so for them.”


You could have a human or animal skull that you use for ventriloquism. You could pretend to talk to it and give the image that you are contemplating weather they should live or not.


'Perish the thought"
"Dead end"
"Don't kill the messenger"
"That's so [adjective], I could just die"
When playing cards you might note that someone is "drawing dead"
Exciting events might be "heart-stopping"
"See you on the other side"
Things might "take your breath away"


Staff member
“I’ve been killed by worse!”

”Its time to close the circle of your life.”

”Things must die that things may live. It’s your turn...”


Thanks you again.

I have some ideas for "Guidance phrases"
"Chill out, it doesn't kill you"
"Don't worry, we don't kill you when you fail."
"What doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger"
"Try more, you can rest in grave"


Victoria Rules
"What doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger"
"What doesn't kill you makes you weaker, so the next thing can kill you."

Not so much a catchphrase as perhaps an iconic item for the character could be the corpse of some small furry creature, cleaned out and stuffed, that she carries with her everywhere as a talisman: her 'deaddy bear'.


Walking Dead where the dump lady has prisoners for the helicopters as 1s or 2s. You could label everyone you engage with as colors or predators or prey.

You can also make sure you aim "Dead Center'. You can express your commitments by being "Dead set" on your ideas.
You might have a twin sibling who is a "Dead ringer" for you.
When you want to express the seriousness of a statement you might say that you are "Deadly" serious.
An unhelpful party member or NPC might be "Dead weight"

Or... You could just put emphasis on particular syllables of common words.. woun-DED, rewar-DED, DED-uction, etc.

It's maybe not a "catchphrase," but I think it would be funny(?) to have a Death Domain cleric who would constantly bring up the subject of death at inappropriate times.

"Oh, I meant to tell you, I ran into Jack the other day. He's not dead yet. Anyway he said to say hello."
"I love the autumn, it would be my favorite season to die in. Do you agree?"
"My mom, she's dead you know, used to love shopping there. When she was alive, I mean."
"Hi Rudy! I see that nobody's killed you yet. How have you been?"
"Oh what a lovely dog! Can I pet her before she dies?"
"Tell the chef that the pork roast was delicious! It didn't taste anything like a dead pig."
"Happy 67th birthday, Carl! How many more do you think you'll get before you die?"

And so on.

Level Up!
