It was removed a few months ago because:
1. We needed the screen space for creature abilities. I hated to have actual information that was valuable to new players missing or truncated so we could fit flavor text in.
2. Some of the flavor text was to long to fit so we would have had to go back and give it more screen space or truncate the text.
3. Some of the flavor text wasn't very good. Some of it was cool and well written, but some was pretty bad. So we would have had to rewrite a significant portion of it anyway.
4. No one used it. We removed it months ago and people didn't notice. What does that tell you about how valuable it is.
We could have overcome any of these issues on their own. But together the best options was to remove them. we will be concentrating on better heirgamenon entires for the creatures rather than quotes for a spider. I have written quotes for the sovereigns. But again it will probably be in the heirgamenon, not on the main ui. (the main ui is precious, if its not needed, get it out of the way).
