IT'S TIME.http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/19288793/ IS THE LAST THREAD, ARCHIVE LINK AND SHIT IS THERE, ALONG WITH GLORIOUS CONTEXT. PART TWO OF THE HOLY GRAIL WAR 'SEASON FINALE' STARTS... NOW.
"Lisa, hm?" I ask. "Is that really all you're going to tell me?" "It's all I'm at liberty to say. Ask Shirou is you're really curious. Excuse me." she says, trodding off - Just as Shirou enters. "I'm sorry for bringing her here. I didn't have much choice.""You had plenty of choice, Shirou, and you know it. What is that woman doing here?" "She... She's a recent friend of mine, from the Church. We met about a year ago." He goes on to explain that the woman was sent to keep an eye on him. Subtlety is neither of their strong suits, so she was found out quickly - an Executor who was sent to watch a monster of a magi. Her sword, incapable of severing flesh, instead cuts away Magic Circuits and memories, preventing the use of magic, or Reality Marbles. The shower starts up and I sigh. The door to the bath doesn't latch properly and the air pressure differential when someone is taking a hot shower makes the door swing open, so Atalanta keeps a hold on David. "I need her safe. She's important to my plan to take out Caster." Shirou says.
oh good does that mean this quest is finally ending
>>19302124>Give Sword to Odie.>Use it to rip caster a new one.>???>Profit
>>19302124Dipshit has a plan? This is new.EXPLAINFURTHER.jpg
>>19302124Hullo, Mistress.Ask him what his plan is. Also, ask if he's capable of Projecting Gem Sword Zelretch, using his Mana Engines if necessary.Oh, and I assume King of Lies Triumphant is back to A++ now, yes?
>>19302124>Her sword, incapable of severing flesh, instead cuts away Magic Circuits and memoriesOh yeah, that's such great idea to have her rest here.>"I need her safe. She's important to my plan to take out Caster." No. Just no. We don't care, we don't want to know. We don't even want you here. Actually you probably should tell him that we're thinking of joining caster just to fuck with him.
>>19302161Wait, what? Shirou can do this shit? I CALL BULLSHIT!
>>19302189Well, yeah. He did it once, right? And now he has a cavefull of mana, two massive prana generators, and his RM to boot.Also, he DID mention a weapon that could destabilize the Grail...
>>19302184>Tell him we were thinking of joining with CasterDo you want to get a sword in your gut?
>>19302259Grow a spine, will you?
>>19302259Telling him what Caster told us would work. We should be cautious. Make sure he doens't spill the beans, dammit!Motherfucking spies!
>>19302282It's less about being spineless, and more about not taking unnecessary risks just to fuck with people. Anyway, we need him if we want to use the hax Sorcery sword.
>>19302287Hmm. Yeah. He should know that we're being watched. If he spills the beans at the wrong time, well, we are all dead meat.
>>19302287Write a note telling Shirou that Thomas has familiars EVERYWHERE. Do not speak unless you wanna inform a guy who commands motherfucking demons how we plan to kill him.Written notes which are burned immediately
>>19302323What we need is a way to prevent Thomas' familiars from being able to see the Mistress.
"What is your plan?""Cut off Solomon's memories and his Circuits." he says. "It might not work, but it's certainly better than just throwing our Ser-""'Our'?" "Well, I -"I lean forward in the chair. "Let me make something clear, Shirou." I say. "This isn't Japan, and it's not your hometown. Right now, my home, my Washington, is burning. This isn't your war, this isn't your boat, and these definitely are not your servants." I sit down again. "Am I making myself clear, 'man of swords'?""...Yeah. I'm sorry." "Good. Then once Lisa is dressed, you're to remove yourself from my atalier immediately. It was bad enough bringing a damned Executor with a blade made to disable casters." He nods, and I relax. "Good. Now, then. Your plan, it won't work."
>>19302338Or, we need a distraction. A very sexy distraction, one that will keep Thomas's attention. Liz, get some whipped cream and Atalanta. It's time to put on a show while we plot Thomas's downfall.
>>19302367"Why not?" "Because I got a good look at Caster. At Solomon. His Mana is ranked F. He doesn't have Circuits.""Wh-what?" "Think about it, carrot-top. None of his 'casting' has been done without the demons being nearby, that we've seen. And summoning Demons can be done with rituals. You know, the magecraft that requires almost no prana at all?" "That's insane. So...""So his only Noble Phantasm is the Seal. It lets him control Demons absolutely. The Demons cast for him." "... And you're discussing this when Thomas has such an extensive familiar network?" "What is he going to do, change the parameters of his Servant? He can hide Caster, but I doubt that will work. He'd have to move his atalier, which would just expose him further. Technically, we have him cornered.""A cornered rat is dangerous." "Yes, it is. That's why I'm asking you to project the Gem Sword again." "... Are you nuts?" he asks. "I was only barely able to do it the first time. This time, it'll take me a whole day. And it probably will only last half an hour, if that."
>>19302309We don't want a guy involved that butts in on OUR Grailwar and wants to destroy OUR Grail. Sheesh, you should decide if you he's so weaksauce that we can take him on or if he's not and he HAS AWSUM ALLIES that can help us... Both at the same time always seems to me that you just want to lap up to him because "Hurr,it's Emiya!"
>>19302338Check if there's a service for speed window-tinting?I think we should have a clean room on the ship, where we can sterilize ourselves and kill any familiars which may be on/in us (like tapeworms or fleas or the like
>>19302374That's fine. We can wait. We'll just have to be ready to move fast once you finish. Or you could just, you know, use those Prana Engines of yours to supercharge your projection. Or we could have David help you. As far as I recall, his magic acts like a force multiplier.
>>19302374We're not nuts, not now. We need to kill Caster. We can keep him distracted for 24 hours, or so. Once that sword is finished, give it to Archer. We can win this even without Shirou, but hedging our bets is a good move.
>>19302374Oh boy, so it's already decided that we want to kill off caster and his master instead of working with them?If we really have something against his master, we should at least try to talk with Caster in person. I still think that Caster isn't actually a threat to us as long as we don't fuck with him...
>>19302469The guy wants to do something to fuck with our memories. He's aiming to get us with a Kiritsugu. DO NOT WANT.At least investigating his offer might turn up some interesting ideas.Also, get Shirou to share his exotic plan of win with us in detail. We need to be cautious
>>19302441Shit, just remembered. Gem Sword Zelretch is only usable by him or his descendants. So if we want a Projected superweapon, we're better off with something like Excalibur, Avalon, or the Gae Bulg
BOB BRAIN WAVEThose demons Solomon uses are like mini-Reality Marbles, right?Couldn't Lisa fuck them up pretty good, rendering Solomon defenseless?
>>19302528Excalibur is uncopyable. We'd be better off with say, Durandal, or Gram considering. Lisa's sword is still the best bet.
Wait, what about getting Shirou to copy Gae Bulg?
>>19302607The amount of prana to activate a one-shot kill might kill Shirou, thoughI LIKE THIS PLAN
>>19302607Err. That's a lance. Shirou only does swords.
>>19302502I said working with them, not letting his master fuck with our memories. That is and always was a huge no-no. If you're so hellbent on offing his master than at least let's talk with Solomon first what he does think of his master etc et. Maybe there even isn't a need to kill Solomon. On the other head we could offer Solomon an Allience with us what probably what from a logical standpoint would be the best course for him. I mean.. I'm all about bloodshed and killing brats, carnage, evisceration and all that stuff. Fuck it, my favourite moment was when we caused a mass-accident on the highway with dozens of bikers involved and when we threw the brat into the goddamn cauldron. I was even all positive for killing david (and a part of me still is, because I don't trust Atalanta at all) but since our dear master was so depressed after killing a kid, that she even started to shag a servant I'm kind of against killing a 16-year-old brat again. So I don't really get why the rest of you suddenly is okay with it. I was all about coldblooded murder and being professional aboout that stuff, but you guys tried to be moralfags about it and now suddenly we revert back to childkilling? How is that consistent, Eliza? Just because he watched you getting it on with your furry lover we're suddenly okay with that again?
>>19302626It would cost more mana likely, but he could do it. We give it to lancer, and BOOM, we have victory.
>>19302641Rho Aias (a shield) would like to discuss that with you.
>>19302657He's not interested in a professional relationship with us. He doesn't hold us in that high a regard. We're two things to Thomas - entertainment and a threat. If we stop being A, we won't stop being B. Letting him anywhere near our head is a bad idea. Chucklefuck is willing to give up infinite cosmic power for a giggle and a jiggle, why wouldn't he change his mind once he's got an open shot? He's nowhere near reliable enough to deal with.
>>19302657He's SIXTEEN. He should know better. Plus, he's been spying on everyone, and allows Caster to go on rampages throughout the city.
>>19302641I thought 'sword' was more metaphorical. Anything whose intended purpose was a weapon. >>19302657 The guy was still a condescending shit. he wronged Master by treating her like a cur. Master kills people. remorselessly, even. But only if they push us in the wrng way. if they fuck with is or otherwise treat her like she's goddamn rabble.Still, I see your point. Interacting with Solomon wouldn't be terrible, right?
>>19302657David's just a kid who got dragged into this because he wanted a mum, and we didn't like killing the CoP's kid because he was a bystander. I've never had an issue with killing people, just with killing the 10-year-old with whom we're allied/promised to protect.Thomas did this willingly. He's a Master by his own free will. I have no issue fucking him up.But Your point about Solomon is well taken. I'd like to talk to him before we attack, and see if we can work something out that doesn't involve memory wipes and voyeurism.
>>19302710..What the crap did you misunderstand on the "Letting him fuck with our head is a no-no"-Part?My suggestion is that the options are: a) We meet up with the brat again, in person, I want to figure out he really is all shit and giggles or if he was just trying to look confident by being a complete tard. Depending on the outcome we come up with a way to kill him and his servant and just him.b) Find out how well Catser stands with his master, maybe we could even force the brat out of the Grail War without killing Solomon. If you guys fear the brat so much, then let's at least try to find out what Solomon is all about and maybe team up with him.c) Kill both.
>>19302810I like plan C.
>>19302810Caster seems satisfied enough, if he's willing to give up the Grail for his master's entertainment on the assumption he can get what he wants anyway.That's the biggest thing that makes this guy unreliable - he doesn't want the Grail. Shirou doesn't want it around, but he still has to stick the war out if he wants a shot at it. Timmy can pull up ties any damned time he pleases, and is clearly willing to burn the state down. Not even for the Grail at this point - he's doing it because he can, to fuck with the Church.There's no way he'd agree to a meeting on our terms, and a meeting on his terms means walking into Caster's kill zone, where if he gets any indication that we're not a willing pair of tits, he'll panic and burn a Command Seal and we'll have Buel up our ass. If he's any kind of intelligent, anyway, given we have command of a servant who moves at Mach Fuck You in the Ass.
>>19302810This actually sounds fairly reasonable. I like the idea of trying to feel out his actual power level.If he's fuckhuge strong, we turn Solomon against him. If he's not, we gank him, or have Odysseus KoLT him.
>>19302760>David's just a kid who got dragged into this because he wanted a mum,How can you be so goddamn quick on your judgement? We don't know that. Like I said, it wouldn surprise if in the end we get fucked over by him and Atalanta, I don't trust kids one bit especially kids that seem to be able to summons servants out of fucking nowhere. The same reason why we don't know if Thomas is actually really a prick or just a retard that mistook being self-confident with being condescending.
>>19302528... Why do you show me these things?Anyway, you're right. "I wouldn't be able to use it anyway. Forget it. I think..." >>19302760>>19302746Yeah. Solomon is 'The Wise'. I think talking to him would not be a bad idea. "Let's have a royal audience." I find myself saying. "Me, Lancer, David, Archer, Lisa, and you. We come in flying the flag of peace, talk to Solomon." I smile, looking out the window. "How does that sound, Thomas?" I ask a seagull passing by. It squaks and flies off. "Archer! Get the boat ready! Liza, are you ready?" "N-no!" comes the reply. "In a moment!" I reach up and take Lancer's hand, pulling David onto my lap with a smile, and we all get on the dinghy. It's a little crowded, but the trip is uneventful. David likes riding with me. We arrive at the pier, and Caster is waiting - With Thomas at his side. Surprisingly, Thomas is just as good-looking as Caster, if a bit skinny. Caster wears his robes, a slight smile on his face as he sits down on... A plastic lawn chair. "Try anything, and my demons will end you." he says simply. "I thought it might be best to get that out of the way - we would not desire any misunderstandings. Now that we have met, on neutral ground, what is it you would like to discuss?"
>>19302810The fact that Solomon doesn't need the Grail to do whatever he's planning suggests that he's both sticking around after the war, and changing the world in some way.Just because he's willing to work with us now doesn't mean he always will be. If we get the grail, we'll by definition be a threat to his plans. Likewise, he's going to get stronger over time, not weaker, so if we're going to eliminate this unknown variable, we need to do it as soon as possible.Basically, i'm opposed to people that can kill us continuing to exist. We should be the strongest, and then we can tell everyone what to do.
>>19302829That doesn't surprise me, since your suggestions were always the worst since day one. >>19302872>Caster seems satisfied enough, if he's willing to give up the Grail for his master's entertainment on the assumption he can get what he wants anyway.BUT HE ISN'T GIVING IT UP FOR HIS MASTER'S ENJOYMENT. HE NEVER WAS INTERESTED IN IT IN THE FIRST PLACE!Solomons wants to create a new kingdom, one hat will last and that he won't fuck up this time around.
>>19302924Why did he sit on the Lawnchair?Nevermind, we want to know what his plan for the Grail is.
>>19302924What we'd like to discuss would best be discussed away from your Master, really.But, since he's here...Hey, Bob! Do y'all think we have a chance, given that we've drawn them out of their home turf?
>>19302967So, he has a Master for no real reason, who's fighting in a war he doesn't care about winning, for an object he has no use for, that his Master claims not to want, for a goal he doesn't need it to accomplish. And apparently all his magecraft is near 0-prana shit....Where are Thomas's command seals? This is a disaster waiting to happen. Never has a Servant had LESS reason to obey a Master.
>>19303010We have a chance, but we need to wait until Caster is distracted. Once he is, Geek the Mage, and KOLT Caster.
>>19303012That's why I wanted to try to drive a wedge between him and Thomas. Divide and conquer, what?
>>19303061Honestly if the geek wasn't right there I'd outright ask him what, exactly, is keeping him attached to the little bastard.
>>19302924"Let me be frank to you.I want to know what it is that you're planning. Thomas told me that you don't have any interest in the grail nor does he.The same goes for me and David. We just want the wish of my servant, Archer, granted and David wants to have Lancer stick around after the grail war. I've never had a wish of my own to begin with. At least not that I know of.I want to know, if there is some kind of middle-ground that we can stand on without trying violently murder eachother. I want to know if Thomas is actually really a condescending brat with some weird tastes and how you, King Solomon, stand to this. I have no qualms about you leveling this city to the ground, That doesn't concern me. You want to be king of this country? Knock yourself out. But if your plan is to go all genocide, hell-on-earth and all the stuff on the whole country, then the continent and the world, I will have to stop you. So please explain it to me."
>>19303125This...would be acceptable.
>>19303125Drop the "not that I know of" and "I'll have to stop you" phrases, and I think we're golden. Don't want to come off as more antagonisti than ultimately necessary.
>>19303125Hell yeah. Awesome speech.
>>19303125I'm good with this.I still want to know what Solomon's getting out of his master shy of existence, which we have alternate methods of guaranteeing. But asking him outright would DEFINITELY draw aggro from little Timmy.We should try and steer the conversation that way though.
>>19303186>Drop the "not that I know of" andWell. I only included that because thats how the Grail works. If we didn't have a wish of our own, the Grail would not have chosen us as a master in the first place. If anything, one could say that the only wish we have is a family. And we have that now. Now we just want to protect that tiny little bit of happiness we carved out for us. >"I'll have to stop you" phrasesI don't think that we should lie to him. I did just include that, because it is a simple fact. I mean.. if he goes World War 3 on the whole world there is no way we can reach our happy end. So we'll have to stop him. He knows that, we know that, everybody involved knows that, just stating a fact.
>>19303125"Let me be frank to you.I want to know what it is that you're planning. Thomas told me that you don't have any interest in the grail nor does he.The same goes for me and David. We just want the wish of my servant, Archer, granted and David wants to have Lancer stick around after the grail war. I've never had a wish of my own to begin with.I want to know, if there is some kind of middle-ground that we can stand on without trying violently murder eachother.I want to know if Thomas is actually really a condescending brat with some weird tastes and how you, King Solomon, stand to this.I have no qualms about you leveling this city to the ground, That doesn't concern me. You want to be king of this country? Knock yourself out.But if your plan is to go all genocide, hell-on-earth and all the stuff on the whole country, then the continent and the world, I will have to stop you.So please explain it to me."Whereas Thomas frowns, Solomon smiles.
"Well spoken." he says. "I will speak simply, in honor of your... frankness. My wish does not require the grail. I want a nation of my own, a kingdom to rule with the lessons I have learned. I wish to bring prosperity to this world again, through diplomacy and careful manipulation. Keeping others from gaining the grail was necessary - I did not know their identity or wishes, so I acted accordingly, in case they jeapordized mine. As for Thomas... He was necessary to bring me here. So, in deference to this act of charity, I am also charitable with him.""Is that so? You support his voyeurism?" "No. But I cannot act against him while he holds the command seals. And I am impelled to protect him." I note one of Thomas's command spells is burnt. "So please, don't shoot him. It'd be quite troublesome. At any rate, seeing as you are all quite reasonable, I would be pleased to pleased to help you."Thomas whispers in his ear. Solomon spares him an exasperated look. "He's asking if you've considered his offer, Eliza. If you take his deal, rather than mine, I would be more free to act."
>>19303225Drawing out aggro of Thomas is all within my calculations. It's not as much about the actual answers as it is about how the people react to the questions. Always tells you more about people.
>>19303319A kingdom of his own eh? Has he heard of corporations? Anyway, there is no way in hell we're taking Thomas's deal. However, we want a condition from Solomon. He doesn't wreck the city any more. Then we accept his deal.
Why, this just sounds too good to be true.I don't actually read these things, is this a universe where things that sound too good to be true totally are?
>>19303319What Solomon just tacitly told us is that the only reason he would interfere is that Thomas would order him to. If we kill him fast enough, we should be good.For example, if Attie were to leave, back up, and charge in at .85 C, there would be no way for Thomas to react quickly enough.
>>19303454I like this plan.Plus, we'll be so much closer to getting the Grail.
>>19303319Probe a little bit about the nature of protection. How craziyl would shit get if thing were to go bad (like, say a non-Association, non-Church member attacks him)
>>19303454Problem is, Solomon right now is Command Seal'd to defend boyo. He'd react instinctively and take the shot for Thomas, and Thomas would get more Commands rolling to kill us all.We just need to work Caster loose of Thomas. He'll probably gank the kid for us, and then we stab him in the back of the face, or at least direct his energies more creatively.Hell, can we request he stops this over-the-top demon army shit? It's drawing the church's attention. He has to realize that making enemies of a widespread organization like that is a bad idea.
>>19303499Yes, because Thomas isn't standing *right there*, and hasn't managed to live this long, and isn't getting suspicious and annoyed with us. This is a great plan and nothing can go wrong with it.
>>19303319>one of the command seals are burntwell, its official: solomon really give very few shits about the guy who summoned him.we have the advantage here guys, we should take advantage of it.
>>19303466>>19303454Actually, let's do Spear of the Boar. Solomon knows Attie can into superspeed, but he can't know her Noble Phantasm.>dat autohit on the squishy mageProblem solved
>>19303559KOTL would work just as well.We pull that on Solomon.Hell, Odie's likely already about to do it.
>>19303559>>19303572As someone in favor of being the Last Mage Standing - i think we should stop for a minute and consider what happens to Solomon's demons, even if we successfully gank him.
>>19303572Too many people for KoL:T. It'll become unusable afterwards, and we might need it for Emiya and his Executor ladyfriend. Or Attie, should she prove untrustworthy in the end.If we refuse Thomas' offer he'll probably burn a command seal to get Solomon to attack us. Think carefully about the answer.
"You do realize the enemies the demonic army brings you, yes?" "I am perfectly aware. It's why I ceased the actions and only moved to guard myself from them. Shirou can tell you as much." he says, slouching on one arm. "So which is it, Eliza? My deal, or-" He pauses, then rolls his eyes. "Thomas wants you to know that you don't have to sign the geas." He turns and looks at him. "You realize, boy, that you aren't going to walk away from this alive? I suggest you apologize, and hope they are merciful. I can't protect you from everything, you realize." Thomas grunts, but does nothing. Solomon shakes his head.
>>19303599Lisa has what amounts to an anti-demon Conceptual Weapon. We kill Tommy and Solomon, and they're easy meat for her.
>>19303621Shit. Thomas is gonna burn a command spell. Let's propose that we all just walk away from this meeting. We can continue it later
I just don't understand the amount of downs this kid has. I mean, who the fuck tells the person they're voyeuring that they're doing it?
>>19303621Ha ha, fucking told by his own Servant.Welp, all the good advice in the world can't save an idiot. Attie, ventilate the perv.Solomon, you're good with contracts, right? We get veto power over your ruling-the-world thing, which we do solemnly swear to discuss with you before using, and this is a deal.
Group huddle time. Ask Big O and Lanta for their input on the matter. Also ask Thomas/Solomon if they could please refrain from spying on us while we're doing this as a sign of goodwill.
>>19303621Thomas needs to speak for his fucking self. And no geas, no watching, no familiars, no nothing.Hell, let's give THOMAS a geas whereby he can't watch us, monitor us, or in any way interfere with us, ever.Other than that, I'm fine with live and let live. Unless Thomas doesn't go for this, in which case we kill him very, very dead, very, very quickly.
>>19303621"Your goal is noble and frankly, judging by the myth surrounding you I am kind of looking forward what kind of nation you will creat and how you will change this world. You, see, your highness. I knew that you were a reasonable person. That's why I am here to begin with it. Your doings in this Grail-War didn't strike me like the deeds of King Solomon, but like something a somewhat unreasonble master would do.Now that I was able to confirm my presumptions I know that Thomas is not the kind of person that I would make a deal like he proposed to me with. Thomas is the only reason I am inclined to fight you. That's way, let me propose to the both of you, a deal of my own. You, Thomas, forfeit from the Grail-War and your rights as a master. You do that and you will live. Heck, I would even agree to put a Geas on me and my Companions that we not only won't hurt you, but will also protect you from the aftermath of this war and the church. If King Solomon should need a Master to exist in this world, what I kind of doubt, I would be willing to offer myself for this position as long as he needs me. But only after my servant get's his wish and Lancer get's hers. Before you get angry about this, Thomas, please consider this. King Solomon may be powerful. But right now, church is dispatching a shitload of executors, it's only a matter of time until the Association joins them, too, just to contain the damage you have done to this Grail War. There is no way for you to survive that without our help. Even if Caster manages to kill us, to kill others that will try to contain this, do you really think that you will surive all this?We can end this now peacefully. Please consider it."
>>19303669this first. don't just make a big decision like this by yourself.
>>19303724Well spoken again, Anon. We can win over Thomas by merely out-speaking him. Good show! I'M A TRIPFAG FAMILIAR VOICE-IN-MASTER'S-HEAD AND APPROVE OF THIS MESSAGE!
>>19303724THISA THOUSAND TIMES, THISGoddamn, Anon, you deserve a medal.
>>19303724This. Talk it over with our allies first, though.
I present the options to my allies. Shockingly, Atalanta doesn't care about Thomas's intrusion, finding it slightly flattering, but understands my anger. Odie agrees with my ideas, and so does David and Shirou. Atalanta nods, saying this is probably the best way to handle things. >>19303724Thomas stares blankly as I speak. He looks at Solomon, then sighs. "Very well. Take my command spells." he says, holding out his hand. Archer chuckles, and lops it off. He screams, looking at Solomon, who shrugs, snapping his fingers and sealing the wound. "Fool." he mutters. "Well. That leaves the last two masters and their servants for the Grail." he sighs. "Transferring ownership of a Servant to a stable manafont away from the Grail is not difficult. In fact, it is almost pitifully easy - however, it will not work every time. With that in mind, I shall prepare that ritual. I suggest, Lancer, you make your goodbyes and farewells in that time - just in case. It should be ready in about three hour's time." Lancer looks to me, then to David, while Thomas begins to wander off. Are there any suggestions I should make to Lancer?
>Checking through archives to learn shit about this quest>So who's our servant? I always thought Achilles would make a great Rider, or Odysseus as Ar->Your servant is Odysseus as ArcherPardon me I'm just going to read through EVERYTHING now and get replying once I'm caught up. OP, you're cool people.
>>19303965Um...This is kind of cheesy, but...At very least, you need to tell her you love her. And that, no matter what the outcome of the ritual is, you will take care of David. In case she...you know...Vanishes...
>>19303965...This is going WAY too easy.At any rate, reassure her we'll take care of David, all that jazz. Also, a long makeout session. Then say goodbye to Odie.
>>19303965Someone with one of the Sorcery is gonna show up and fuck up the party.I was one to tihnk that we would try to have Attie use us as a Prana source, like Rider does with Sakura, if Solomon is the one deciding the soruce, then we'll have to keep it safe.
>>19303965Ha ha! Fuck you, Thomas! Wanna watch Lancer & Liz make out NOW?Shit. This is..interesting.Master, How many Servant does it take to power a grail? I thought - from what we knew of the ritual - it took at least six. Do we have to gank Caster now?
>>19303965Tell Thomas that he shouldn't wander off too far, there are probably still some Bikers around in the city not to mention who else could be lurking around. Also we should probably talk in private with Big O, Attie and David and ask if they're okay with how everything turned out and if they have any input of their own.
>>19304077>Implying we couldn't use Shirou instead.
>>19304048>>19304009I agree, this is a mite suspicious.Yeah, I think assuring Atalanta that we actually do care about her (Is Master in love? I think so, but I wanna see her admit this while being all adorble and blush). Also, we should promise to look after David. The kid will need a mother, and Atalanta wants to be assured this is the case, even if it's not her.We should still be vigilent. Solomon might not be as honest as he'd appear to be: remember he's a FAKE Servant.We should be prepared to Command Seal Archer into ganking caster while we have the chance. then make him remind us of his wish, the exact prhasing he'd use, etc. then command seal him to suicide. We get enough souls to power the grail, and the victors (David & Lancer) will each get a wish - David for Atalanta to stay, Lancer to grant Odysseus his wish. it's not ideal, but it beats trusting Caster if he does turn to be duplicitous.
Maybe It's because I was a Lemming in my past life or because I'm a paranoid familiar in the first place, but it somehow feels like the calm before the storm..
"Excuse me. There's something I need to handle." Shirou says. I eye him but he just bows. "Don't worry. I swear, you've earned this." he pauses. "And, uh, if the power goes out, don't worry too much, okay?" he adds nervously, before dashing off. I raise an eyebrow, then shake my head, turning to Lancer. And find myself unable to talk. Faced with the fact that I might lose her forever, she just seems so suddenly... Perfect. I can't look away, only stammer half-words, and mumble. She sighs, leaning close and kissing my lips, and it's like a dam breaks. I pull her close, ignoring the pain in my arm, and push the kiss deeper. My eyes close, and I lose myself in feeling. She pulls away, and I get to breathe again. "Atalanta, I...""Don't worry. I know." "..." I look at my feet. "I'll take care of him.""We'll take care of him." she says softly, kissing my forehead. "Besides, someone has to inherit your Crest, right?" she smirks, ruffling my hair. She turns to Archer, and hugs him. He chuckles. "It's been an honour.""Indeed it has." Archer walks up to me. "I was never able to say this during the war." he said. "But I could not have asked for a better master." he says. "Well. There's still quite a bit of time." Lancer says, quietly. "Wanna... head back to the boat?"
>>19304361Take her back to the boat and give her two hours of the best damn lesbian sex she's ever had. Make her scream out YOUR name this time.We believe in you, master!
>>19304361The focus needs to be on her. Entirely.And we won't try to watch this one, Mistress. This is your time together, we won't intrude on that.
>>19304408And if you're into it, let Atalanta nurse your scars.With her tongue.
>>19304361Really, Atalanta? Wheelchair-Sex?On one hand, kinky Wheelchair-Sex with Attie. On the other hand, though, I think that everything went way to smoothly... and I would really hate it if all hell breaks lose while our Master is rubbing one out with his Lover... I don't know guys... DOUSHIO?!
>>19304408As her familiar it is our sworn duty to watch
>>19304361Oh shit. I think I have something in my eye.Our advice won't be of much help, here. i want to prattle on something about being vigilant or wary or shit, but this could be your last time together. make it special, however that means to you both.And Archer is proud to have us, too ;___; Damn, I am getting misted up a bit. Shit.
Odie gone mean losing a bro, he make one hell of a team with our mastah too. Hnngh I'm still feeling something is gonan go wrong.
>>19304465Like what, zombie Kotomine?That'd never happen.
>>19304434Yes, yes of course. It's our sacred duty to watch over our Master. And her lover. Very attentively and closely.
I have a feeling this won't go down well.It's just a feeling, but I doubt the Church is just going to let us have the grail.
Can with catfood = Master & Lancer making outThose damn cats = The many incarnations of Bob the Familiar
"Yeah." I smile at her as Archer takes David's hand. [PASTEBIN TO BE SHOWN AFTER THE END OF THE THREAD.]We return, a little sore, a lot happy, to find the shore dark. "What's happening?" I ask Archer, who shrugs. David speaks up. "Big light and errything go kabewm!" he says, pointing at where the space Needle was. We must have missed that. Stolas approaches, and bows."If everyone would follow me..." he says, his voice unnaturally deep. We make our way into the International District, into the basement of a grocery store. It's large, exceptionally so - and the interior is much, much different. Shirou and Caster are finishing the final touches of a magic circle - intricate beyond anything I've seen. "It is time to materialize the Grail." Caster says. "The souls of the Servants have been supplied. The soul we do not have, will be supplied via specialized prana." he says. "And Od.""Wha-" Shirou manages, before Stolas bobs oddly - and Shirou is blown to pieces. David cries out and Atalanta gently calms him, looking fearful. The circle glows brighter than ever as Caster walks over and starts the generator himself. It roars to life, and the circle shines even brighter.
>>19304569Well, this may be a bad, bad sign.
>>19304569>and Shirou is blown to piecesTHIS IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY-PRESENT EVER, MASTER!
>>19304569Huh. Well... That happened.
>Shirou deadWELPTHAT ITGAME OVER MAN GAME OVERI can already hear Sakura coming with Rider.
>>19304629Her riding skill is A+
>>19304569HA HA OH WOW!I was kind of okay with Shirou as an ally, but whatever. We're not THAT attached to him. Still, we should be cautious. Caster, that was a dick move.Is Shirou dead? Or was that just the puppet that got blow up? The answer to this may determine how badly our collective anuses will be violated by a Vengeful Sakura.
Yeah well enter combat mode and be very, very careful? Why teh fuck did he kill him? To supply the grail? That's bullshit.
>>19304629Nah, he isn't dead. He just needs a new body. And I think we might need to fuck over Caster soon. This isn't good. This isn't good at all.
>>19304629>>19304603He's not dead, stupids. All Stolas did was take the prana out of the doll.Wasted opportunity, if you ask me...but then, now we don't have to worry about Rider and Sakura fucking us up.
>>19304692Wait a second, where does his soul go sans doll body?
>>19304692We still do, if we don't get him a new body. I mean, I'd be fucking pissed if I had my body taken away from me.
>>19304692>>19304702>>19304730Assuming we CAN do something with a soul, keeping it around would be sueful. We could verify to his allies (read Clocktower bitch and Plumslut) that he's not dead, keep him as a consultant for advice on how to fix the Magical Prana turbine, etc.Hell, we could always ransome him, if we want! HEE!Still somewhat nervous about Caster's plan, but whatever. it might still work.
>>19304730MFW we find a way to jimmy Shirou's soul into David's teddy bear
>>19304832>mfw Shirou is Kon
>>19304809We better not ransom him.Just get him back to Rin and Sakura so we don't have to fight them.
>>19304832Oh my god yes. Let's do it. After all, it's somewhat humanoid. He can just deal with it until he gets a new one.
rolled 41 = 41"Was that... necessary?" I find myself asking. "Yes, entirely." Solomon says. "The Od has pieces of the soul within it - small, but there. Within the whole body, there's enough there to count as another soul, given another operation I performed previously." he says. "It is quite involved. He's still around." "Where?" "Right around... here?" he waves over a seemingly empty space in the room. "In any case - behold! The truly manifested Holy Grail!" he roars, turning and throwing his hands int the air. The beam of light that descends, truly, is breathtaking. It's like an opening to an infinite expanse, a world beyond. Archer turns to face me, smiling. "And now..." Solomon approaches us, then puts his hands on my and Atalanta's shoulders. and pushes our lips together. Something - I can't really explain what - sparks between us, a bit painfully. "Connection made." "... You can't be serious." "With my magic circles, anything is possible." he says simply. "David, hold out your hand. No, wait, a few steps over here. Good." he reaches down, and plucks the Command Seals from his skin - painlessly, and tosses them into the Grail. "The moment of truth."My magic circuits catch fire.
>>19304887Oh my gods, it worked. Thank you, dicebot.
>>19304887Operation: LESBIAN SEX FOREVER AFTER was a success gentlemen. Now, all we need to do is grab a teddy bear, shove Shirou into it, and we've tied up all the loose ends.
>>19304887Oh god, oh god. I sure as hell hope that wasn't a 1d100 diceroll to determine if Lancer stays or not...
So, we're sure that all of the Masters are defeated or otherwise on our side, right?
rolled 72 = 72>>19304887I grip the rests of the chair tightly, groaning as I feel my Circuits writhe. It's like having a building dropped on you, and actually catching it. It's like the pressure of the world! I groan, to find Lancer holding me - and the pain, the pressure, passes. But my legs go numb. The stress and the previous injury have collated, resulting in...Uselessness. But she's there. I hold her, tightly, and David cries out, mushed between two very happy girls. "Archer. Make your wish." "I wish... That me and my men arrived back home, without incident, after the war." he says simply, taking a deep breath, and walking into the Grail - which then vanishes. Oh god. I get a wish, too. And Lancer's still here. Uh.
>>19305120I want PHENOMINAL COSMIC POWER.Failing that, some working legs. And magic that isn't just an excuse for the DM going "Lul you get hit by a bus."
>>19305120Wish for more wishes.
>>19305120Alright. Two options.Option one, give Shirou his body back. Fuck that shit. We can get him a teddy bear to live in for now. Let some other poor bastard get him a bodyOption two, A reward for your loyal familiar. We want a body Lizzie.We really want a body. Can we look like a mix between Liam Neeson and Samuel L Jackson?
How long will Atalanta-chan live in this dimension after her wish? Depending on that answer, wish for immortality.
>>19305120Depends on what you want to do. You can wish for your body to be restored, for the city to be fixed, or to erase peoples' memories (except those of the people present in this room) of what happened over the past couple of days...
>>19305120How bad are the legs, can they be healed without using the wish? How long will Atalanta last?You should probably go for the restoration of your body if it can't be accomplished any other way, but if it can maybe you can reward your servant by giving us a proper body and freedom.
>>19305120Wish for a bottle of whisky. Single Malt, at least 16 years old. The good shit. We've earned a drink.
>>19305205As long as we do. We made a contract with her
>>19305247Immortality is then a perfectly viable wish.
>>19305247Then should Eliza make a wish to be with Atalanta forever?
>>19305189Mastery of the Third Magic. Magical Knowledge, PLUS the ability to aid Emiya....if he's willing to pay the price
>>19305120"I wish for a Body for Bob the loyal familiar, if it weren't for him I wouldn't have come so far."
>>19305267When you're immortal you have all the time in the world to learn everything.
>>19305267Holy shit, THIS. Then we can also go toruist-y between other bodies if our own proves too tiresome or incapable. Wishing to walk again would be weakWishing to become a body-jacking tourist FTW would be awesome!
HUMANITY DISCOVERS ENERGY EFFICIENT FTL TRAVELMAGES......IN......SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE
>>19305274I really don't see this ending well. I mean, we'll just argue with ourself all day until we starve to death.
>>19305275>>19305120>>19305280It's not like we are permanently disabled. Calm down, guys, it's just a day ago that we got hit by a series of magical bullets and wo days ago since berserker nearly eviscerated us. I think spending some weeks in a wheelchair is not that high of a price for that..
>>19305325That, and if Master is immortal, there will be theoretically unlimited times she forgets to block us from watching steamy hot Atalantaloving.
>>19305325So?We can ALL get laid with a FRACTION of the effort
>>19305267I kinda wanted a body, but this is better Liz. DO EET.
But stealing bodies is wrong. We can live forever without those. Hell, we'll probably learn that magic eventually anyway, and technology will make new bodies for humans this century.
>>19305325DUDE! We could look like this! I don't know about the rest of you people, but I do want to be the little girl! Also: Possible threesome with master and her girlfriend, but psssht!
>>19305408>ponyWat. that's clearly an elf-CLEANSE AND PURGE
>>19305391No, Magic is some incredible hard shit to learn.Go straight for Mastery of the Third.
>>19305391I'm with Alex. Immortality.BUT, let's specify unkillibility, too. Like Ciel, at least.
>>19305432We have INFINITE TIME. Even the time to master magic will eventually seem trivial to us.
>>19305440Also build in a clause where we're able to forfeit that immortality if we really really want to. Eternal life might get a bit boring after a few millenia.
>>19305267"I... I wish for master of the Third Magic, Heaven's Feel." I say, enunciating carefully.The Grail... Pulses, as if to acknowledge my wish. Again, it feels like my circuits are on fire. But instead of burning out, they are... cast in molten metal, it feels. A heat rolls over me, as my Crest grows, wriggling through my body while my circuits grow. Doubling. Tripling. Quadrupling. Quintupling. I feel them, both, under my skin, growing thicker and thicker.And then it's over. Leaning in my chair, I pant. It feels so strange, so simple. The Third Magic. Mastery over souls, of life. "How does it feel?" Solomon asks. "You've gained something many people have sought for some time, now." "... Simple." I manage. I don't even know what to do with it.
this is going WAY too smoothly......What's the catch?
>>19305457Well mistress, I think it is time for you to take a vacation, you've earned it.
>>19305408>>19305340Okay, okay. I've got it now! Free bodies for everyone! I call dibs on the black one! >>19305363>>19305325
>>19305457Nice. This should enable us to keep Lanta at a much higher power level than before.Try if you can fix Emiya somehow, to see how your powers work. Don't use Davids teddie bear, it might upset him.
>>19305457Mistress, I...Goddamn, it feels GOOD to serve one of the most powerful beings in the world.
>>19305466Well, dipshit did explode. We might want to at least start to think about maybe doing something about that before his magical goon squad shows up.
>>19305466Who knows?Zombie Kotomine?
>>19305489That would be...interesting.
>>19305484This. See what we can do for Shirou. It would go a long way towards placating two very angry women with long purple hair & stonking great tits.
>>19305440Immortality already means you can. not. die. Even when you are killed.
>>19305478Also give me that brown-hairded one, because I wanna get my lez on with the others.
>>19305544Where's a convenient body for him?
>>19305569I'll be the redhead on the edge.
ALL FIVE HAVE GATHEREDTHE FIVE BOBCATS
>>19305544"Right then, first order of business..." I pause. "I need a body. Something humanoid and solid..." David hands me his teddy bear. "Seriously? This is all we have?" I roll my eyes, then activate my Crest, mumbling to myself as the soul enters my influ-woah. WOAH.I can see it. I can see everything. All the parts of his life, all his experiences, all of them. I can feel them. Some I'd rather not feel. Feeling a voyuer, I stuff the body into the stuffed animal.Slowly, it animates. It has no mouth, so it cannot speak. It looks at its own hands, then heaves up and down a little - like it's sighing, then clambers into my lap and sits with a very enthused David.
>>19305484Oh come on, we'll only do it for a couple of minutes.AND I WANT MY BODY.
>>19305654Mental reminder, Mistress Lizzie: buy David a new teddy bear after we give Shirou-bear to Sakura.
>>19305654LOL Shirou is Kon
>Dat feel when you know Heavens' FeelSeriously though, we should watch out for EiznbernsThey're gonna be SO PISSED.
>>19305654Nicely done, master!So...Now what?
>>19305702A century of lesbianism!
>>19305695I bleed from them. I won't say from where, but I do. And we don't just KNOW it. Mistress has MASTERED it.>mfw we just not only took the Grail from the Einzberns, but we took their Sorcery too
>>19305654Mistress, could you give us a body? Pretty please with a cherry on top. We've done good work.
>>19305746For them, dammit, I bleed FOR them.
I wonder if Eliza could use HF to give herself a magical boob job...Imagine it, Liz: you have curves roughly equal to Attie's. Take the hot lesbian liongirl sex to a whole new level.
>>19305654...Really, master? Carrot-top gets a body of his own and we don't..? If not for my Ex-Rank-Charisma-Speech we wouldn't have come so far..
Ask Solomon what happens next.
>>19305695Einzberns and zombie Kotomine try to kill Eliza.This would be ridiculous.
>>19305654Mistress, I'm back and I... Oh. Ohhhh....can I get a body that looks like Stolas?
Remember: No happy endings
>>19305778"... What happens now?" "Now? Go on and live your life. I do believe you have earned it. However, I would be wary - you have stolen something of great value from another party. And they will do anything in their power to take it - or just to watch you burn." I feel a little cold. "But you have your life, your woman, and your child! Truly, there are no greater treasures." I nod. "What about you?" "I think I shall first purchase this store. From there, well. I believe the modern phrase is... The sky is the limit? Though I doubt that. This one planet is too small for my kingdom." I stretch. It'll be some time, yet, before contact from the outside world. What now, I wonder...?
>>19305787Are you kidding? There's much more interesting demons we could base our body after.
SOME GODDAMN FLUFFY TAILS
>>19305878>league of legends shitpls no
>>19305860Mistress, we should probably return Shirou to his friends before we do much else. Then you can go on vacation, but don't forget to give me a body.
>>19305880Haha... Mara...But I think a Stolas form would be the most apropos, considering we are providers of... er, "wisdom."
AND SERIOUSLY, MISTRESS.INCOGNITO VACATION.I DON'T CARE IF YOU HAVE TO GET CRUTCHES.DO NOT GET RECOGNIZED BY ANYONE YOU DON'T LOVE.
>>19305860Grab David, Attie, Thomas - we promised after all, to look after him if he foreits from the Grail War - and go on vacation somewhere in the south sea. We clearly need a vaction after all.
>>19305909Have Shirou-bear write down Sakura's phone # so we can call her & arrange to meet up so we can return Shirou-bear.She will want her Sempai back....
Go on vacation, rest up. HEAL up. Tinker around with a suitable body for Shirou when you want something to occupy yourself mentally. Get in contact with your agents, with your family as well. Then well there will be plenty fallout to deal with....and yeah I gotta admit... a body would be nice. But there's no rush on our end. We're just excitable and happy for ya.
>Solomon is waiting for alien contact>Golden Armor>Wise>Caster (psyker)Guys...I think we just created....nah, never mind. Couldn't be...
Kill all Einzberns. The best defense is a good offense.
>>19306022Hmph. Speak for yourself. I don't want to share this head with you guys anymore, not after I discovered my grandeur as a diplomat.
>>19306004We're not taking Thomas perv on vacation with us, the only one who gets to watch Mistress and Atalanta go at it.We're not in a huge hurry to get a body, but it'd be nice.First thing is to call up Sakura, inform her of the Shirou situation.We'll need agents to keep an eye on the Einzberns but she deserves a vacation before she hunts them all down.
>>19306022This. And let's not make it a permanent body, just an ability to manifest at will.Also, fuck Thomas. We said we'd protect him from the backlash og this Grail War, nothing more.
>>19306076You seem to be under the false impression that she will separate us into our component parts. Even if she decides to make a body for us, assuming she can do so without damaging herself, I believe the nature of our creation makes us quite stuck with one another... "Bro".
It was surprisingly easy to call Sakura and get an address to sen Shirou to. I offer to help him into a new body when I return from wandering the earth. Until then, Sakura has told me she will be looking for another body for him. I got a call from Rin asking me about the Third Magic, but I hung up. Right now, I could care less about magic. I'm on the boat, and it turns out David is a competent helmsman, so he's taking us south, into warmer seas. Atalanta and I are enjoying ourselves. She looks good in a swimsuit. Right now, we're focusing on evading the Einzberns, and keeping an eye on Solomon. Humourously, he's begun expanding his chain of manga stores, expanding them into traditional print and bookstores, and opening new ones. He's enjoying his life very, very much, saying that taking it easy was best. Thank you for all the help, Legion. But it's time to expire you. Familiars are never really built to last, to be honest, and you were only made to go for seven days. I'll try to rescue what I can with the Third magic, but just in case... I'm waking you up one last time, to tell you what's been happening in the last month.So long, and thanks for all the help. It's been a blast.
>>19306065...God fucking damnit.
>>19306143It was good to serve you Mistress. I hope that I live through this, I'd like to see a world outside of the Holy Grail Scuffle.
Omoz groth ozh.
>>19306143It has been an honor. My master. Good fortune be with you, let's hope if you should ever need another legion, your next will be a bit more manageable. I doubt the whelp can hope to match our splendor though.Say farewell to the others on our behalf. These past days, have been most exciting, with them we've lived more than many people could hope for over several decades.
>>19306143It has been an honor and a privilege, Mistress Eliza.Wherever your travels take you, may you find clear skies, calm seas, and a straight path.(And EGO: Thanks for not killing Lancer. Between Diarmuid and I, we're tired of watching Lancers get fucked.)
>>19306143If we don't make it, then thank you, mistress.And farewell.
>>19306143Is it okay to be lecherous before death? Familiar need his priority, ya know
>>19306143Nice to know you then. You still owe us that body. And a beer. Time for us to go into seclusion. Don't worry about us, we'll stick around.
[[TAIGA DOJO!You can expect some building threads, soonish. This was, after all, just an experiment, to see how well /tg/ enjoyed the whole thing. Feedback, bros! I LIVE on it. Oh, and questions. And I'm typing up the canon sexing now, might take a bit.]]
>>19306264So like we'll see a continuation with games of cat and mosue with the Eizbern?
>>19306264Could you post the full stats/abilities/NPs for all the servants? Putting them in a pastebin might be the easiest way of doing it.
>>19306264I liked it. It ended far quicker and far easier than I had expected it too, but I wasn't disappointed with it. I kind of wish we had spent more time hanging out with Big O, and doing trickster stuff, but oh well. It's a little odd not being able to directly influence the character at hand, but much like EGO Quest at least there is an in universe reason for it, so that's good. It would be nice that in the next one we could actually manifest once in a while if shit gets real. It's nice being able to directly influence things beyond suggestions and advice after all. Overall impression a Solid B+ in my book.
>>19306143But-.. But I don't want to disappear.. Ouhh..! Fine! It's not I liked you anyway, master! I was just in it for ride, the chaos and the potential carnage..I said it on the first day and I will say it again: You suck as a master... Now leave me alone!
>>19306297That'd be cool too, especially if it snowballed into another war that shouldn't happen so soon due to Eizbern dickery or something.
>>19306325Actually no. After about thread four, I lost most of them and was running on "This should work!"In fact, most of the Servants went unchanged from certain builds in the Building threads. So there's that.>>19306337I've once allowed Legion direct influence, and that was... Alchemist Quest, on /tgchan/ as Shot. Man, that was a disjointed peice of shit! I was only in it then for the sex and lesbians. ... not that I've changed, much.
>>19306363It's all good man, let it out. No point in holding back at this stage. I'd offer a shoulder to cry on... but we don't have shoulders...yet. She said she'd try after all. That's more than we could reasonably expect.
>>19306264It was fine. I liked it. It was pretty much the first time for me that I regulary looked forward to a Guest-Thread and I'm lurking on /tg/ for years now., so take it as you will.. I think the only thing I didn't like after all was the Emiya-Cameo. I mean, if would have been fine if it stayed a Cameo but liked that I've had the feeling that Eliminster suddenly showed up and was fucking around with us. The ending had a nice twist to it, you know, talking down a master and his servant. That was a first.
>>19306374Perhaps it could have a hefty prana cost, so we can only use it when we really need to? I'm sure you'll think of something.
>>19306143>evade einzbernsSearch and Destroy! Search and Destroy! Master, nothing has changed since I gave you this advice. Destroy each and every force that opposes us!Flatten and pulverize all obstacles in our way! No matter who it is! No matter what it is! No matter... who.. it is...
>>19306433Agreed. The powah of diplomacy succeeding was a nice touch.
>>19306374'kay. I was mainly wondering what that spider-statue-thingy was that Shagnasty pulled out but never had a chance to use.All in all, not a bad adventure. I personally didn't mind Emiya showing up, but from what I read it didn't go over too well with some people. Maybe a bit too easy when it came to combat and stuff, but we played it smart and kept our heads down most of the time. Also, our servant was FUCKING AMAZING. Big O for bro-tier. Can't help but wonder if we'd managed to get one of the other servants, though.Extremely solid B+, would play again.
>>19306458>Spider statueShagnasty is affiliated with a certain spider god. He was going to use it to - Well, it's better if you don't know.
>>19306143Fare thee well, Mistress. may your new life be happy.Just think of us when making sweet, sweet love. We'd appreciate it.Familiar of Team Archer, signing off.
>>19306501>legions of spidersOh fuck me, I'm so fucking happy we tore that guys face off before he got a chance to use it.
>>19306501Oh, you mean Anansi? Yeah, that could've gotten ugly. Good thing Attie rammed a spear up his ass before he could break too much.BTW, how much of this did you pre-write? Or at least pre-outline?
May I ask, why does Eliza look up to Kerrytugu?
>>19306653After thread 2? None of it. I knew the goals and the abilties of the characters in question, as well as a general timeline of what would happen, but other than that, nothing. >>19306689He's ruthless, yet has a cause. He knows what he's doing. And he pisses off people she dislikes.
>>19306433I'd kind of agree with these sentiments. While the option was aways there, the fact that he came in and was all HEY GUISE HERES HOW TO FIX THIS was felt like you could have warped the plot a tick.That being said, he was largely well-handled - he was there, provided us an option, and didn't prove to be too antagonistic towards us. Perhaps having him show up more like another, specialized agent who somehow decided to ally with us rather than someone with his own agenda might have worked better. It would've provided suspense (is carrot-top REALLY being honest with us) as well as providing our team with a powerful (yet not invulnerable) ally.Plus, that trick with Stolas at the end was comic gold.I liked the way you handled the character of Eliza. Ruthless enough to Fuck Things Up when we needed to, but still giving her standards was nice. I was a little uncertain about the relationship with Lancer at first, but that delicious intimate erotic pastebin bit made sense. Some Servants just accept the fact that if they die, it's no biggie.
>>19306743Speaking of pastebins.LESBIANS, PART ONE. http://pastebin.com/T3p0X379Yes, so long it has TWO parts.http://pastebin.com/FHzaAK8q
>>19306776Oh dear lord.
>>19306743Also I liked David. He was cute without being obnoxious, and was useful without being hypercompetent. His backstory was simple, direct, and work well for the narrative.I kind of like the melodrama of the Nasuverse, which is why I kept whoring for character backstories and the like but I can see why you might not elaborate on that too much when the plot is so forward-driven and in-the-moment.I felt there were a few moments where we, as a familiar, could've helped (should've prepped a Bad-luck bomb in case Caster was gonna betray us) but ultimately I commend you for being a good GM and taking the higher rode, not dicking over your players too much.All in all, I enjoyed this. The characters were fun to love and/or hate, the suspense workd well, and the ability for us to plan and advise was too damned good. the familiar-on-the-shoulder advising the heroine was a solid move which I hope you use in future.8/10. Ienjoyed and would play again
>>19306776>no seafood referencesWhy
>>19306776I CAN DIE HAPPY NOW
>>19306776Pretty good lesbianisms.7/10.
>>19306776YES! YES! YES! YES!
>>19306711He's not a very good role model though.
I liked the quest but was disappointed with the lack of SUFFERING.In general while doing a nasuverse thing, don't be afraid to make everyone suffer for a while, its just not "Fate" without somebody dicked over.
>>19306776Alright. Got a question. What happened to Thomas?
>>19307118He's actually working as a Communications teacher in the Clock Tower now.
>>19307129Huh. Good for him.
>>19307129So what encouraged you to make such a happy ending?I mean it was no secret to expect a bad ending from something FSN based.
Also, theme song for the epilogue:>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avaSdC0QOUM
It'd be nice to have the stat blocks of all the servants.
>>19307016I have to agree. While I love the fact that everyone won, i was expecting something like Caster would betray us or Lancer would be slowly dying or something which would make us have to make difficult choices. After the endgame with Berserker, things just got a little too easy for a bit. And while Caster still loomed as a bit, scary, threat, the fact remains that things went all too happily.In Nasu-land, you earn your happy endings. It felt like we were just given some.Perhaps a few more choices like? Do you rest or help Atalanta? Do you take a risky route (which seems more reckless but pays off) or a safe route (which is more secure but might secretly cost us).
Well, it's been fun. See you all in Season 2 (If EGO decides to do it, that is)
>>19307220I suppose I'm not that good at tradgedy. When I try for it, and I have, it's generally overblown, or silly, or not enough.
>>19307325A good way to go about it would be for our servant actually losing a fight. /tg/ will /tg/, we'll complain and be angry but if it feel fair, I'm pretty sure nobody is going to mind
>>19307359We lost our first fight against the Shagnasty, if El Cid haden't ridden in on his motor bike he would have killed us.
>>19307376Hm, another way then would be wounding Lancer, and if you want to be a bastard, ahve the wound complicate when everyone think were safely out of harm's way.
>>19307217>Implying it's not this instead:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vy_xbXIJ898
>>19307129Huh. I figured he'd be working as a handyman somewhere.
>>19306230Didn't we continuously watch lancer get fucked this quest?...>>19306776...I could have sworn that we repeatedly watched Lancer get fucked. And enjoyed it.
>>19307573Yeah. Lancer keeps getting fucked when it comes to the HGW.
So, what happens now? If this was the end of season one, whats season 2? I hope it's where we randomize all the parameters and have another go!
>>19307763I actually hope it's a continuation with the same characters in a different city with a different grail. With some sort of interconnected plot behind it.
>>19307803Ditto. Maybe the Grail has started moving around.HGW Balkins.
If the grail starts moving around, and wars occur happening more frequently, it's just going to get harder for the mages to cover them up.
But at least we'll never have to fight Zombie Kotomine.
>>19308055Somehow I think that the Kotomine-Sisters are more horrifying than Zombie-Kotomine. >REJOICE, Shiki-sama!
HOLY RIDER WARSEVEN RIDERSONE GRAILFINAL DESTINATIONAlternatively, the Do Not Die When Killed Championships, featuring such Servants as Caster: Rasputin and Archer Hercules alongside Siegfried as Saber and really anyone else with Endurance A we can fit in there.
>>19308211Viking at Stanford Bridge, and Horatius.
>>19308084Oh, man. Seriously though, Zombie Kotomine planning these Holy Grail Wars so that one of them would be corrupted and give birth to what he wishes to see.Acting in the shadows and manipulating important officials along the way, even.
>>19308211>Do Not Die When Killed>SiegfriedBut Siegfried died like the little bitch that he was. I would however love to see Hagen as Lancer or Brunhild as Berserker.
Blackbeard as Rider?
Any ideas for what we should expect next from you?Or if we should expect to see another quest with Elizabeth, Atalanta and David? Even as side-characters or cameos?And did Elizabeth manage to salvage anything functional out of Legion?
Yo EGO, I'd just like to say that the quest felt a little too... easy. Understandable, since it's an experiment, like you said, but I can't believe how easy some of the Servants went down.But I expected a longer quest, too, so... eh. You didn't do too bad of a job, not all.And 10/10 lesbians would fap again
>>19306776Reading the fapfiction. Great so far, EGO. One mistake you made: Atalanta is LANCER!
>>19307444I can just picture Atalanta & Lizzie dancing (and even Odie going through the motions like Kyon) and singing this while David jumps in for the "MOU IKKAI!"
