(( Previous threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Holy%20Grail%20War%20Quest ))(( Twitter: https://twitter.com/HowDoIShotTrip ))(( IRC: #HGWSeattle @ Rizon ))You are Legion (Nicknamed by yourself as Bob), familiar to Luke Morcai. Your Master is capable of powerful but time-consuming Circle Magic, which can replicate many spells but requires a great deal of preparation and time. You are both embroiled in the Great Grail War, which is a Holy Grail War with four sets of servants. Your Servant is Astolpho, knight of Charlamagne, Rider Class. LAST TIME: YOU SUMMONED AFTER GREAT 'DELIBERATION' RIDER, WENT INTO TOWN TO BUY GROCERIES, LAND MINES, AND SHOTGUN+AMMO, AND MET ARRY, MASTER OF ASSASSIN. BEING WEAK ON DEFENSE AND NOTICING YOUR LACK OF PRANA OUTPUT, SHE HAS ENLISTED YOU TO DEFEND HER. THE PAY? SAFETY FROM HER SERVANT AND FREE PRANA FROM HER BLOOD. WHILE UNHINGED, ARRY IS A POWERFUL ALLY. WHAT SERVANTS WAIT TO FIGHT IN THIS INSTALLMENT? CAN YOU AND LUKE OBTAIN THE GREATER GRAIL?FIND OUT! IN THIS INSTALLMENT OF HOLY GRAIL WAR - SEATTLE.((Continued in next post.))
I really need to get a bed. I crick my back as I rise from my nap, Astolpho pishing Arry out of the kitchen. She has bandages on her hands and a sack of ice in them, and looks dissapointed. The smell of meat greets my nose as I walk into the kitchen to find Astolpho in an apron, short-shorts, and a tee, humming happily to himself as he cooks eggs, beef, and onions in one mishmash of 'food' in one pan. "Good morning, Master." he says. "Any plans for today?"
>>20117645A few notes.Since this war is different from the others, the usual balance between the classes are slightly different. Thought I should point it:1) Casters will probably be more dangerous than usual. Now they actually have enough time to prepare and, more importantly, to analyze the Grail. Expect Grail to be hacked at some point. Also, it would be nice to have Caster as our Ally.2) Berserkers are even more of the death trap than usual. It's hard to keep them under control for a week. In this war... I think sooner or later at least one of them will simply go on rampage, the war be damned.3) Archers are less independent. This war will go on for longer than usual, so lesser levels of Independent Action aren’t all that useful. Usually, two days without prana income can mean a difference between defeat and victory. But not when the war will continue for the next month. Higher levels are still a problem for us, though.(Cont.)
Regarding Fatman:Now that fearboner no longer clouds my judgment, I think we overreacted a bit. Fatman is, without a doubt, a formidable treat. But I think he is not an unstoppable horror that we all fear. After all, he's still a Servant. Not THE Fatman from his stories, but a copy of legend recreated to the best abilities of the Grail. An INFERIOR copy. We are not suited to deal with him, yes, but I do think he can be defeated and actually killed.There is a problem with his blinking in and out of existence. Death of Arrie (or at least removal of her Seals) may be necessary to truly kill him. Then, there is a problem of his abilities. To deal with him we need someone capable of killing people from long distances, preferably without actually seeing them.Or we can pull Henderson on him. I think it could work.Or we can kill Arrie and just run from him till he runs out of prana. Also could work, though it depends on mechanic of his flickering.In any case, don't despair. We've killed Shagnasty, created a god and revived ourselves from death twice out of sheer stubbornness. Some skinny dude is no match for us. Especially since we have our own skinny dude. With BlackBob and trap.
And last but not least: Master, you MUST find a waifu for yourself. Believe us: it is absolutely crucial for winning the war. The 6th war was won because Eliza found Attie. The 5th war did not result in the end of the world as we know it because Shirou found Sakura. All wars before it were lost because Masters were more concerned with fighting than with finding love and getting laid. You should not repeat this mistake. Right now you are surrounded by trap and crazy bitch. Your chances of winning are rather low because of it. Correcting that shall be one of our top priorities.
Also, I propose a standardized geas for long term alliance.I don't think we should use this geas on Arrie because she most likely would demand from us to take the same geas, and I would like to be able to kill her once the opportunity presents itself.Our Master will be referred to as Master and whoever we place this geas under as Ally.So.Upon accepting this geas Ally swears to1) Not harm Mastera) by actionb) by inactionc) Directlyd) Indirectly (by, say, harming Master's property or Servant(s)).e) via Servant(s) under Ally’s control or influence (social or magical)f) via people under Ally's control or influence (social or magical)g) by orchestrating situation that will result in harm to be done to MasterException 1: Master can permit violation of the above by explicitly stating that it is his will. To avoid misunderstanding Ally is obliged to ask whether or not Master is sure about it.Exception 2: Lesser harm can be done by Ally to Master in order to protect Master from greater harm in a situation when asking permission to do so (which falls under Exception 1) is impossible. Ally also must be reasonably sure that Master would've wanted it himself (example: knocking Master to the ground to dodge attack)
2) to not withhold any information that might be important in the war and to tell such information without prompting, including but not limited to information about potential dangers to Master.There are three conditions under which geas may be ended:I) If only Ally and Master remain as active participants of the war. Under mutual agreement of Master and Ally, more allies can be included in geas.In this case the fact of meeting this condition must be announced by the Ally to the Master. The geas remains active for 48 hours after announcement under normal circumstances. However, if Master suffers from damage of any kind that can be dealt with in reasonable time (say, a month), geas will remain active for all this time.After damage was dealt with, an Ally shall announce the end of geas again. Again, geas remains active for another 48 hours.II) If Master earned hostility from Rulers. Once this fact becomes known to Ally, point 1b is no longer in power (so Ally doesn’t need to actively protect Master from Rulers). Ally is obliged to announce this to Master. Geas (aside from 1b point) remains active for another 48 hours.NOTE: This position included under assumption that Ally would demand the same geas from Master. If only Ally is placed under geas, no need for it.III) By mutual agreement. In this case the terms can any that both Master and Ally find acceptable. This agreement becomes part of the geas once both Master and Ally agreed on its terms and announce so three times with full understanding of what they are doing.Something like this. Feel free to add more lines.
>>20117645Check the news, see if there's any reports of that explosion you heard last night. Or other crazy shit that might be linked to the grail war, of course. We need a place to start, and this is as good as any.Also ask if Arry's okay. She probably just burned herself in the kitchen, but we can't be her protectors if she's hurting herself already.
It that time again.Ok, the first thing Master needs to do it begin patrolling. We need intel on what that explosion was, and we need to start figuring out what kind of enemies we might be facing.Plus we need Rider to get the lay of the land and pick some good battlefields for himself.As for us Bobs, we need to decide whether drinking Arry's blood is a good idea. It will protect us from El Skinny (according to her at least), but we still aren't sure of the how or why of that effect, and what other dangers it might present to us.
>>20117752We need to know more about her before we can make a decision like that. Like, what kind of magic does she use? She's a mage, after all. We appear to be safe from Slim Jim for now, but that might change in the future.
>>20117645"We scout, dear Servant. We scout for a Caster."We hack this game. Ditch the psycho once we have a sane person we can ally with, and we're set.
>>20117695Bob's, do keep in mind that Kariya Matou cared more about getting his Waifu than winning the grail war.His obsession got his waifu mentally broken, contributed to Kotomine becoming a REJOICE monster, snuffed out Sakura's only hope for rescue, gave Rin serious emotional issues, broke King Arthur's resolve and dreams, killed Maiya and, less directly, Irisviel, and caused him to waste one of the all-time best Servants on a meaningless pissing contest with Gilgamesh.Oh, and he got set on fire and eaten by worms.So yeah, don't put all your chips in the Waifu box.
>>20117723"You alright?" I ask. She looks up and nods. "I can't really fulfill our agreement if you're hurting yourself." She nods again, staring at her blank seals and muttering to herself. A Geas, huh? Well, it's doable. "I've been meaning to ask about our alliance. Would you be opposed to a Geas?" She shakes her head."The terms?" she asks.>>20117698>>20117716It takes some time to explain as Astolpho finishes cooking and hands out the meal. He looks at me with a raised eyebrow as I finish the explanation, and she nods. "These terms are acceptable." she says. "Are you always this... methodical?""I need to be. Spur of the moment is not... my style." I explain. We take some time to eat - It's good. It seems Rider at least understands his way around a kitchen. "We will seal the Geas after this." After the meal, I draw up the terms in Latin and sign them - and she does as well. The circles in the paper bind her and me into the agreement absolutely. To act against it would require a willpower so incredible they may as well be a Servant. "So what are we doing with the rest of the day?" Rider asks. "Scouting, mostly. Looking for other Masters and Servants, signs of combat, things like that." Rider nods. I can either patrol this city - Tacoma - or head to Graham, Seattle, or even Gig Harbor. Seattle is the most populated, Graham, the least. The others are average.
>>20117874And that was a bad thing?Kariya was weak as fuck. Natural selection is a bitch, but a fair one. Besides, you can't deny his demise was fucking hilarious, though. THE SUFFERING! THE DELICIOUS SUFFERING!Master, I suggest to start crafting up magic circles. Cover your ass. We have a month, why not create one room that's an absolute barrier or something similar? OOH! Lay some prana-draining traps. A Servant walks in, we suck them of their Prana. Do you think you could bind a Spiritual entity to a confined space, master?
>>20117645The same thing we do every night Pinky.TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!
Oh my god...that guy was actually right. these threads are horrible. ten on a 1-5 scale of clusterfuck. and I was pro /a/ incursions. geez.
>>20117889We need to know our surroundings.Would be a shame if some near divine being is summoned in our neighborhood and we missed it patrolling other city.So, Tacoma.
>>20117695Are you implying that the trap cannot be a waifu?
>>20117889Head to a place with a lot of people. Attacks from other masters are less likely to occur in populated areas, especially during daylight. Make sure to come prepared for combat, though.
>>20117889We might as well search in our local city
"We will remain in the local area. There's a few areas I can trust to have at least one or two Masters. Because of the scale of this Grail, taking out one or two enemies is less impactful than it would be in a normal Grail. We may want to consider waiting for our foes to eliminate one another, or for Berserkers to lay waste." I say. "Assassins are a major thread, especially with four of them. We can't bare our backs at any moment..." I nod to myself. "We'll be walking." "Right." Rider says, agreeing. "My driving may attract attention if I'm not careful - better to remain inconspicuous." "Says the pink-haired lady with purple eyes." "It's natural!" he protests angrily. "Okay, okay." I rise, stretching, and get dressed, changing out of pajamas in another room into a simple, casual outfit that's easy to move in. The walk to the mall (With busses) is without event. However, when we get there..."Three..." I mutter. Three pairs of masters and Servants in this one place! Damn... And in these crowds, it's hard to pick them out. It seems everyone went to lengths to disguise their Servants...
>>20118255Well shit.3? That's a lot of them near home
>>20118255Hm... Wonder around, be close enough to Servants to still feel the presence of one of them. Sooner or later the Servant will go somewhere else, we can follow the trail.It will expose us as well, but pink hair is rather remarkable so other Masters probably saw our Servant already (and saw you on the meeting), and our CLEVER DISGUISE should protect Rider's real identity.Speaking of meeting. Recognize anyone from there?
Master, a thought:You are not the strongest mage. And you do not want another mage to be supplying mana for Astolfo. So, we need to look into alternative means of gaining mana.Now the last war we in, assassin's master created fields and used them to harvest mana. I believe our Creator also mentioned a similar technique being used in a previous war.I recommend you do something similar. However, both previous techniques failed because they were indiscriminate, hardly subtle, and linked the system to their home base. Thus, I propose the following changes:1) Limit the field to a single vehicle, let's sat a bus or a train car. Small, mobile magic should be harder to detect than large, stationary magic.2) Only take the smallest amount from a person and only once in a 24 hour period. No one notices if they feel a little tired on their morning commute. People DO notice if they start dropping for no apparent reason.3) Link them to each other, not your base of operations. That way, all you have to do is get on one of your buses or trams and they can all feed you. Further, if someone does devise a way to track you by the process, you can just get off at the next stop. Plus, who is going to fight Rider in a location that promotes linear travel with little room for maneuvering?Overall, it ain't get you as much, but it is much harder to detect, disrupt, and pin down while being less if a drain to set up. Think of it as drinking several small cups of water in a desert as opposed to one large swift of water. The second may provide relief faster, but if you drop it, you lose everything.
>>20118462Seems good.Also, apparently allowing Rider to ride you (as in, piggyback ride) will improve your circuits for the duration of the ride.No, seriously. His riding skill improve all stats of the "mount" by one rank. Including Mana.
>>20118255No one is going to start a fight in here, but stay close to Astolfo anyways.You ought to be able to recognize masters if you paid enough attention at the orientation, you did pay enough attention right?Get to a high up place, it'll let you scan the crowd better.
>>20118387Pretty much this. Drawing too much attention to yourself at this junction is unwise. Maybe try to locate someone who looks out of place even while dressed up, like Astie. Or someone who appears to be looking for other people in particular like you guys are.
>>20118462A pragmatic idea. How dare you think of it before me!>>20118255Well, go on. Take a look! What Master/servant combinations can you see?
>>20118255I suggest you try moving a secluded place. If nothing else, it will determine if someone has picked you out of the crowd yet. Your servant is fairly distinct given his features, but this is the Fate world, where nobody noticed that Sakura and Shinji had blue hair, so its possible Pink may fly under the radar.It's also possible that a superior mage with acute senses will follow you if he detects you leaving the group, which will allow you to solidly identify him. Risky, but he could have a shitty servant for all we know. We need to do SOMETHING at least.
>>20118637You can't be - I Look at Astolpho, allowing me to see his statistics and abilities...http://pastebin.com/qJw29xd7 ... Good lord. No. Not in a million years! I won't let him ride me!Moving to the second floor and looking down, I see two pairs in the food court. I think. One of them is a young man, who looks quite excited - his partner is large, burly. His hands show a skin that is dark, almost chocolate colored, and rough. He wears a hooded sweater, I can't discern more. But he seems very... on gaurd. The other pair appear to simply be a couple - a handsome young man, and a pretty young girl, a brunette, with sharp features and piercing eyes. Her lip is curled into a smirk, as if she knows something no one else does. But the third eludes me. It's like the connection leads to multiple individuals. "We're moving." I state, heading to a clothing store. As I thought might happen, one of the pairs follows me - the larger man, and the teenager. Rider looks among the fashion, slightly distracted as the magus and servant enter the store.
>>20118761> Further, by praying for a few moments Astolfo may breathe life into inanimate objects such as stones or trees and allow them to change their form into a useable mount.Astolpho should ride his own lanceHoverboard style
>>20118761Good lord we are stacked.>>20118462Seems good.
>>20118761Master, I would like to ask you who here among us has already won a HGW? Oh right, it's me. You sleep separately from your Servant when there are 4 fucking Assassins running about and you couldn't defend yourself from them.You are placing your desire not to give this adorable Servant a piggyback ride over Victory? What the fuck is wrong with you? Have you seen what Eliza went through to win? She ended up battered, bruised and with broken bones to win. If you aren't willing to GIVE SOMEONE A FUCKING PIGGYBACK RIDE what chance do we have?
>>20118761>No. Not in a million years! I won't let him ride me!You aren't in the position to be picky. I'm not even thinking about some perverse stuff... much. But it will slightly improve your magecraft and you need every advantage you can get.Right now... Go somewhere where you can speak freely, but keep close to people in case this guy get any ideas. They follow us. Lets see what are their intentions.
>>20118761Can you tell which one the Servant is? It's probably the big guy, but that could be a misdirection.I suggest you stay in sight of as many people as possible, feign shopping, wait for one of them to approach. They'll have to talk or invite you to a fight if you stay in public sight. But keep your guard up incase they're idiots who don't care about the rules.>>20118778I think you're missing the true power of this skill.
Fellow Bobs, i'd like to bring something up. In the last Grail War Eliza told us we could use her "Unlucky" Magic, though at a lesser degree than her. As far as i remember we never even tried. We should look into that. If we are still able to cast curses that might be a considerable boon to our magically inept master.
>>20118853>>20118761Fine. Go and kill yourself. I'll be watching here and laughing. Let him piggyback ride you and up your magic production. it's embarrassing? Fuck embarrassment. Our last master fought a Golden werewolf toe-to-toe and won. Our master before that killed a berserker class Servant face to face. You ever seen a creature made of nightmare with claws that cut prana stare you in the face? You ever been burned all over while squaring off against a primeval beast predating the human race?Piggybacking your cheerful kid of a Servant ain't shit compared to that. You want to win this war? get over your fucking self, faggot.And now you're being followed, too. Way to go, asshat.Prepare to leave. Send Rider in to ask, formally, who they are and what they want. Book it at the first sign of trouble
>>20118970We just can use our current Master's magecraft. Using his/her circuits.We don't do it because, well, we always can just tell Master to do it.Presumably it may come in handy when Master is somehow paralyzed or something.
>>20118841I accept your point, it's just... Conspicuous. As I'm pretending to shop, the teenager approaches. "So..." he says. "I've been playing a new game, recently." he says, "It's sort of a fighting game. But it looks like I picked a top-tier character. There's no challenge. I can't really switch... Do you think you can challenge me?" he asks, looking up at me."I'm not entirely sure." I reply. "This isn't exactly the best place to play." "You're right. The connection might be laggy. We should move somewhere, if we've any hope to have an interesting match." he says, looking around. "And..." his eyes shift to Arry. "It should be one-on-one. Unfair numbers only make things short, and it feels bad to lose in an unfair match. It'd just bother me, all day..." And now Astolpho is trying on sundresses. Dark blue, white... Even a soft shade of green. Arry seems mostly uninterested. "If that happened, I'd have to do something about it. Something... drastic."
>>20119041Well bohoho kidYou think you can beat me with all your top tier characters but you don't even know all the safe jumps and mindgames.I'll vortex your ass to oblivion.I'm going to FADC Shoryu into Ultra 1 your glass cannon shit to hellI have all the Anti-Phoenix TechnollogyI'm an OG you're just a dirty 09'erIt's fucking Grail War Baybeh
>>20119041>the kid is implying he can beat hadoken spamseriously, kids these days i bet all he plays is cowadooty
>>20119041I dislike this kid. Be wary, he sounds crazy enough to have picked up a Berserker, and we dont want a one on one with a Berserker. Might be better to just continue using the Crowd for Cover, and have Assassin of him.
>>20119041"I bet it's hard to find some challenging opponents, right? Right now I'm, so to say, just chatting with potential players. Going around, trying to turn this affair in something more organized. How about you give me your e-mail? I may be able to convince a few people to gather for tournament. No more lurking around trying to spot elusive people. Just straight serial of fair fight. I'll send you message about it."
>>20119041It's fucking Akuma isn't it. God damn it, god motherfucking damn it. I don't want to fight right here, not against him. Not when we have a chance of siccing Slim Jim on him. See if we can get his email or contact info.
>>20119041FOX ONLY NO ITEMS FINAL DESTINATION
>>20119088CURL THEM MOUSTACHEGRAILITY SHQUEEEEZE
>>20119041Yep. It's Akuma. He's a hell of a fighter. DO NOT let him grapple Adol, it will end poorly. If anything we wanna play poking games, his endurance shouldn't be THAT great.Still, as fictional servants go, this guy's up there on raw power. A straight fight is a bad idea. This is a game where it's necessary to cheat some time.
You all are WAAAAAAAAAAAY to eager to unleash a force we have no hope of controlling and no sure way of protecting ourselves from. Do NOT use Assassin in our very first fight, it's beyond suicidal until we have a better grasp on his master and our own plans to deal with him.I'm not eager to face what is probably Akuma one-on-one, but Astolfo has a lot of power to bear, and we have all our command seals ready. There will never be a better time to take on a powerhouse servant than now.I think we should fight him. But try to cheat if we can.
>>20119041If his servant really IS Akuma, we're in trouble. He's strong and fast, but not very durable. A hell of a martial artist, though, one of the best out there. We'll have to employ hit and run tactics, making sure to NEVER get too close to the guy if we can possibly avoid it. Speed vs. Power, that sort of thing. Seriously, this guy can potentially kill you in a few hits. Especially if he uses his super-moves, which are all fast and powerful but have limited range.Talk it over in your head with Astie. See how he feels about going one-on-one with a Berserker.
>>20119134Forget to add:Then we'll send Slim Jim on his ass.
>>20119134"I bet it's hard to find some challenging opponents, right? Right now I'm, so to say, just chatting with potential players. Going around, trying to turn this affair in something more organized. How about you give me your e-mail? I may be able to convince a few people to gather for tournament. No more lurking around trying to spot elusive people. Just straight serial of fair fight. I'll send you message about it.""If you want to call me stupid, you can do it to my face." he responds. We both know the stakes of this game. How easy it is to cheat. How simple, when you get down to it, it is to win. I know your type. You can't face me head on. You'll prepare traps, you'll sneak, you'll target me, like a coward. Like a rat. And I, the tiger, will hunt you down."I grin. "Rats aren't an endangered species." I tell him smoothly. "They grow warm and fat in the hunter's cottage, beneath the furs of his tigers, leopards, and bears. To be a rat is to win." I adjust my glasses. "Now, are you going to keep dancing about, or shall we have a time and a place?" He scoffs. "When the time is right..." he says, "There will be a flare. It will become a smooth, round stone. Where it lands, we will fight - and when it lands, the fight will begin. The location shall be random, but not the time." he states evenly. "Is that fair, rat?"
>>20119223Specifically, one to really watch out for is his Shun Goku Satsu.However, it relies on perfect concentration on Akuma's part. Make sure Astie understands this and is ready to disrupt it with the horn if Akuma starts skating in for a grapple. If he can disrupt Akuma's concentration, the move's a danger to Akuma as much as Astolfo.
>>20119151I think you might be right.What color hair and eyes does the big dude have?And for Christ's sake, try not to reveal that you have any idea who his servant is.Though if you are an idiot and it comes out, I am curious about what that dude's inspiration was. So ask him for me if he winds up knowing that you know.
>>20119212We geased Arrie. She is incapable of double-crossing us as far as I can see.We don't control Fatman, yes, but we don't have to.Just let Arrie send some reading for this kid.It is risky, but she is also obliged to use her command seals to save us from Fatman if he does appear.
>>20119264He is using a hoodTry seeing the Servant color eyesif it's yellow then he is Akuma
>>20119231Best case senario: Slim Jim kills Akuma's master. Worst Case, Akuma kills Slim Jim. Either case is fine for us.
I think we fucked up allying with Arrie. Nothing good can come of Fatman, or a disciple of Fatman, getting anywhere near the grail. Or a copy-grail.
>>20119251Agree to his terms for now master. We can always back out if we decide we have to, even if it will mark us as "cheaters" in his eyes and make him do something crazy,Hell, that could work in our favor.We can't set traps if the location is random, but we can prepare some other circle magic. Long range elemental artillery maybe? draw circles on our bodies that can allow for time manipulation or spacial manipulation? Something mobile or long range at any rate.Also, consider that Bus idea. I have a feeling getting the necessary mana to summon our Giant will be a big deal for this.
>>20119403Yes. I like the bus idea. Do it to a couple of them for increased mana.
>>20119251Agree for now...We'll think how to cheat later.I have an allergy for fair fights.Get on with prana-buses idea.
>>20119251Also, after dealing with kid ask Arrie what did she see in him and his Servant regarding magecraft.She saw right away that you're a shitty magus.Lets see what she can tell about the kid.
>>20119251Master, have you noticed anything unusual about his mana output?The Bob Collective seems to think we might be running face first into a Berserker. Which would be bad.Our collective face is to pretty to take that kind of thrashing.
Master, how difficult would it be for you to set up a minor bloodfort? Nothing lethal, as that would invoke the wrath of our lovely little friend, but something that feels like a light nausea. If we are to use the Hippogriff or Giant summonings, we need additional prana, and I doubt that the woman can aid us with that level of prana.Also, regarding manners of the Slim Jim. I propose that any Legion who invoke its presence are to be temporarily excommunicated to save Master and his surrounding innocents. For obvious reasons, we cannot say its name, but you'll know when you do, so please act quickly if that happens.
>>20119665You know, if Slimmy is on our side invoking Fearfull Legend might even be good. It likely wont attack us since we are allied to its master, and we summon it to us and give it a combat boost. It may save our live.
"Alright.""I'll be seeing you in a few hours, then." he says, before slipping away. ... The red eyes, the pointed nose, the red hair of his servant only briefly visible before he leaves. I gather everyone, and propose my plan.The circles for the buses? Doable. I can even set them and leave them to channel prana to me. An excellent idea! Shall I do so now? Any other plans I should execute while I have time?
>>20119737Fearful Legend isn't some kind of magical summoning charm, it puts the crosshairs squarely on our back. Even if we drank Arry's blood, which we haven't, we don't go completely dark to Assassin, just "dimmer." Saying his name will turn us into a bonfire.Admittedly, it would be possible to summon Mr. Man with Fearful Legend and then have Arry use a command spell to redirect his target. But that would be BEYOND dangerous and almost certainly not worth the risk.
>>20119737We would need to drink Arrie's blood.Also, she is obliged to protect us with her command seals if Fatman does try to kill us.But Fatman invoke some nasty things on whoever sees him.So we would need to do it blind.
>>20119737You fool, the thing is still hostile to us, we're just dimmer in its eyes. Its master in the first War we encountered was killed by it, remember? No one is safe, especially one who invokes either true name. It will take Command Seals to prevent that thing from killing us.
>>20119665You do know this doesn't work like the Shagnasty, right? That speaking its name doesn't invoke fearful legend?Separating any Bobs from the whole won't help, because the issue here is Luke knowing stuff about it.>>20119251Describe opposing servant's features as best you can to confirm identity, and work on the draining bus.
>>20119779Ask Arrie what she saw regarding magecraft.Anything useful about Servant or Master?
>>20119801You idiot, Fatman is a completely different thing. The shagnasty's dead. Skinwalker skinwalker skinwalker. See?
>>20119815Yes, but if we use his name than Luke knows his name. The less he knows about this servant, the safer he is from it.
>>20119779((Fuhgot mah trip))
>>20119779Yeah, that's Akuma.While you're here at the mall see if you can get any info on the couple, keep an eye on them, describe them both the best you can.Also for the Bus thing would it go faster or be better if you gave Astolfo a piggy back ride, it won't look like anything other than a guy giving his girlfriend or sister a ride.
>>20119863>FEARFUL LEGEND INVOKED
>>20119863Unless he was summoned again, of course.
>>20119779Since the battle site is random and we can't trap it or prepare it, I suggest we consider two options:1) Long Range Fire. Do you have any magical circles which can provide attack capability from extreme ranges, or even without line of sight, so that we will be able to attack regardless of where the battle happen?2) Time and Space Manipulation: Do you have any magic circles which contain spells that allow for simple types of reality warping, like time slowdown, self-acceleration, space-time bending to increase or decrease distances, that sort of thing? If we could make them into tatoos (or even simple paint on the skin) we could put them on ourselves or Astolfo. Against a martial artists servant, that kind of thing could be invaluable.Also, did Arry notice anything about the mage? We need to know what kind of prana this servant has to work with, and therefore how dangerous his Noble Phantasms or any energy projection abilities might be.
>>20119863I will so hate you when there is another Shagnasty in this Grail War and you just made him overpowering.
If the kid is low on mana (maintaining Berserker is hard), we can just shot him in the middle of the fight (when he's distracted) and run away.
>>20119779is there anyway to use your circle magic to put a trap on say..Rider?Like if an opponent makes an attack using X amount of prana it unleashes a concussive force in hopes of disrupting said attack if even for the merest of moments?
>>20119779Yeah, that's totally Akuma.Do the bus thing on as many buses, trains and stuff as you can. Have Rider ride you so you can do it better. Be prepared to assure him that it's nonfatal.I'd say we should disguise Rider more specifically as some other hero, but there's an obvious flaw to that. Any other Bobs have ideas?
>>20119973Are you sure Akuma couldn't qualify as Archer?Also, listen to us going on like this assuming master knows what he's getting into. You have played Street Fighter before, correct master?
If the kid has Akuma and he is talking about "playing cheap" he is a fucking scrubI say we print some article on scrubness and playing to win JUST to piss the scrub off
>>20120010Maybe.That's why I want to know Arrie's opinion.Presumably, she can tell us about prana output.Even if he isn't Berserker, all I care about is that whether or not the kid is low on mana.
>>20120010Pfft. I've played a little. Won a bet to get a meal. But that's about it. First things first...We move to the bus shelter on the edge of town. It's not far off. At first, I'm worried about going in, then Arry touches my shoulder - and I feel... Nothing. Not numb, this is different. It feels like I don't exist. And yet I do. And yet I don't. I move to clamber the chain link fence, and move in. Setting up the circles is simple work. It's even possible to hide the circles afterwards. I set them up one at a time to slowly install themselves with a packet of Prana. I don't need much, just enough to create another packet and send it back. A stream would be better, but would reveal my position more readily than a launched packet that travels faster. As soon as I'm finished, I move back to the apartment, and we work out combat. Arry states that she will remain here and warded under her own power. We will move out, dealing with the foe directly as possible. She mentions that I should be wary. She's said that the prana flow between the two is strange, and even incongruous. When I ask how, I notice a cresting flare outside. It's time. Should I go or stay?
>>20120116Stay. Let some other sucker go tonight.
>>20120142If we stay he WILL hunt us
>>20120039Yeah, link him to a Sirlin article or something.Akuma is PTW personified.
>>20120116Head out there, survey the situation, don't engage immediately.
>>20120116Strange How?Then we go. Some fake, made up hero would never beat one that lived.
>>20120159This. This is Akuma, and he expects a fight. If we puss out, there's no telling what he'll do in response.
>>20120116Tsk.I hate fair fights.At first I was going to suggest we stay.But now Magos said that. So now we know it's a bad idea.Go.Take your gun.
>>20120159No he won't. He doesn't know where we are. And if he comes...We've got Slim Jim.
>>20120116Fucking go for it. Bring guns and anything else useful for combat you might have. Also, when you win, tell him people who main Akuma are scrubs.FISTS WILL FLY AT THIS LOCATION.
Let's check where the flare fellSee if you can recognize the place where it fell
>>20120116I think we have to go. If we don't, whoever this guy is will come hunting for us, and we didn't really prepare much of a welcome.Like I said, if we're going to face a dangerous servant in direct combat with no trap prep, now is the best time. Astolfo is fortified by blood mana, we have bus mana to look forward too in the morning so we can afford to burn our stock, and we have all three command spells.I say fight. We have to sooner or later. It's not like we have Archer or Caster or something. Rider is a FIGHTAN' class, so we best get to FIGHTAN'
>>20120116Put on your armor, grab some guns and head out there. Inform Astie of our battle plan on the way. Hit and run only, don't even ATTEMPT to fight this fucker head on.Also be prepared for backstabbing. There's at least two more masters in town, and they likely saw the flare as well. The kid might claim he's a tiger who fights fair, but other masters might interfere in your fight.
>>20120222Akuma is not opposed to sneak attacks. It's better to fight him now when it's a fairish fight.
>>20120284ThisI want to remind people on how Akuma first appeared on the gamesBy murdering the FUCK out of M Bison
>>20120259We should wait and observe for at least a little bit, unseen, before we face him. Someone else might show up to take him on. Besides, if we draw tonight and he gets away, he might think that out base is farther away than it actually is.
>>20120312This sounds like a very good idea.
>>20120312Yes, observe first.
>>20120312I'm fine with observing, but remember he said the fight starts when the flare hits the ground.Do NOT keep him waiting after that happens if at all possible, or if he seems to be getting antsy. This kid seems volatile and retarded, and I don't want to set him off
”We're going." I say, and Rider nods. We both head downstairs, and Rider looks around, walking over to a large boulder. With a clasping of his hands, a huge black stallion appears from where the stone once stood, cracking open like an egg. He leaps on, then pulls me up."Hold me tightly, Master!"My arms clasp about his waist. He's... More solid than I expected. There's thick muscle here. With a swift kick, he rides, hard and fast, bouncing with me under the light. We arrive to find the enemy waiting, flare in the sky, while the Servant stretches. I expected his form to be more stocky, but he's surprisingly evenly proportioned, if muscular. He grins, nodding towards me."Let me tell you this. The last three Masters thought they had me figured out." the boy says. "You look to be the same." The rock falls. "Servant! Kill this piece of trash!" he roars, and the red-maned man rears back a fist of purple energy to slam it into the ground. Yawning fissures appear everywhere, and the horse rears. While Rider is capable of staying on, I'm not - but Rider pulls me back up even as the enemy rushes forth, hopping between ledges in his simple clothing. He hasn't even bared his armor! Well, neither has Rider...
>>20120432He doesn't have any, master!Also, I refuse to believe this little snot already has three kills under his belt.
>>20120427He just seems like a bored sociopath to me. Not stupid or volatile at all.
>>20120432Use the Spear.You have more reach in your attacks.You have a gun right?try going in for a shoot in the enemy master head
Give Astolfo a gun. It is basically a spear with longer reach.
>>20120432Why are WE on the horse and not on solid ground far away from Servants?It is a basic rule of the war: don't be near Servants when they fight if you can help it.Not sure about tactic here. Let Rider do his thing. He is a good fighter, trust in him.You watch the kid. Once he is distracted enough and you have a good shot - shoot him.It's not like we aren't already in the middle of the fight.
>>20120504Underestimate him at your peril. Thinking of him as a 'little snot' is probably what got those three mages their defeats.We probably should make a list of Akuma's moves.
>>20120432Speed is more important than defense in this fight. Astolfo's endurance is D and this guys Strength MUST be A.Stick to hit and run tactics. Jousting, if you will. Charge in, stab with sword or lance, charge back out. Avoid blows, dish damage over time.Also, try to get someplace safe so you can get dropped off and Astolfo doesn't have to worry about protecting you.
>>20120432Definately akuma then... First off we need to stay on the horse, second off we need to bleed akuma (or kill his master) not engage directly.Master prepare yourself to attempt to counter or mitigate any prana bursts from akuma and keep your mind *only* on the fight, do not think about loss at this point.
>>20120584Akuma will gladly kill masters as well as servants, we want to be on the horse, it keeps us safe (so long as it doesn't slow astolfo down - we should ask about that).
>>20120619If Akuma kills us, our servant vanishes. He won't kill us when he has a strong opponent to occupy him.
>>20120679His master might direct us to if he feels we're playing 'cheap'
>>20120691He'd have to use a command spell. Akuma hates interruptions.
A dull golden lance springs from Rider's hands, thrusting forth. And the enemy Servant thrusts forth a palm - stopping it with an enourmous surge of Prana. with another, he stomps forward ans slams his other fist, writhing with purple energy, into the horse's chest. We're both launched back, and Rider grabs me in the air as we tumble. The Master laughs as I level my AA-12 at him and open fire - to find a strange shield erected around him. Rider tosses me back, and fights the foe before him with his lance.It is incredibly close. One blow after another, it seems like both sides will manage something decisive. The gold clangs against the focused bursts of Prana, and the punches are barely dodged, one after another. I scramble to my feet and away from the fight, watching from a distance. An even brawl... With a hard slam to the gut, though, the enemy opens up Rider, who stumbles. And then I see it. A Noble Phantasm!Mana gathers from near and far, sucking into his fist which is bathed in purple smoke and dark light. With a roar, he slams his fist forth - To meet nothing, Rider having slipped on a stone and fallen. Taking the opportunity, he slamse his spear home. While the local Prana burst stopped the lethality of the blow, the kinetic force was not stopped, sending him into the air, where he floats - and unleashes his armor. Leather with chain beneath. White cloth with green and red patterns. A flowing cape. And a soft, cocksure laugh.
>>20120746Fucking Ganondorf Goddamn Dragmire. Probably Berserker, but he could very well be a Caster class.He's a slow, plodding brawler right now. Tactics the same as Akuma. Try to use hit-and-run tactics with the horse, do NOT get hit by that punch or any other move/NP he has that has the purple swirling energy. At some point he may grab a sword made out of pure energy.He may well take several 'kills' before he truly dies, with a different transformation for each one. Usually in the form of a gigantic pig/boar or something.
>>20120746>soft, cocksure laugh.Don't get a big head over landing one blow. You can laugh all you like when he's dead.
>>20120746GANONDORFHIT HIM THREE TIMES WITH THE MASTER SWORD AND HE'S DONE!Oh wait we don't have one. WELP. Let's tell Rider to leg it. Or do the classic GEEK THE MAGE. Let's sick Slim on him.
Mount back, his Riding skill can't be that high.
Huh. What do you guys say, sounds like a good idea to me to bring out Riders Doomhorse. It would give us one definite edge in speed.
>>20120807Oh shit, we might be fighting Caster. The weird mana flow she Arry senced may be because Ganon has more mana than his master.
>>20120850That it would. Can this dude out run Pegasus? NOPE.So we make him EAT OUR DUST. And sic Slim Jim on his Master
>>20120815Maybe if we had some similarly "holy" weapon, we could beat him.
As of right now we know that the enemy master has barriers that work against basic projectiles. It'd be best to take him out with Slim Jim if only to prevent exposure of the Rider while letting others plan out the demise of Slim Jim from the experience. If they succeed we lose a psychotic ally we'd have to put down later or they expose themselves to Slim Jim's legacy causing untold harm on their psych. Either way we win.
>>20120850Not this early, that'll give away who rider is too easily. If all else fails, we run the fuck away or geek the master.Remember, we're rats.
>>20120936Slim Jim doesn't work like Shagasty, dude. Shout his name and it just marks you in his head as a 'person of interest'. He doesn't come over immediately, guns blazing, to kill the person who summoned him.
>Ganondorf>Top TierMy combos are chaining on their own
Well, this was an important lesson about assuming things about the identity of other Servants. From now on, lets hold off on that until we have something concrete.
While, exposing Rider's Noble Phantasm is a poor option it can benefit us in the long term. I've noticed while he maybe restricted to his steeds and flute due to his class, none of his creatures are restricted to being summoned in other classes. If it seems tactical beneficial at a later point, we may wish to think about using a command seal to forcibly change Rider's class to Caster if only for the benefit of being immune to enchantments with La Red Romance in the duration of the war. With this change people may still mistaken the trap for a Rider later and give us time to hack the Grail and pull off powerful Magic. Considering the possible 4 casters that might still be running around, there might be a lot of subtle and not so subtle magic build up going around which we may need to counteract.
>>20120996That was my first thought.Though to be fair he is the BBEG of pretty much the entire Zelda series
>>20121015BBEG nothing, we are fighting Zelda Satan.
>>20121007Can command spells do that? If yes that sounds like a tactical genius level stunt worth considering...Well, we should inform Rider that getting the fuck out of dodge is what he should do if he cant keep up with ganon anymore. That includes using his horse.We have an assassin on our side, we should use that.
>>20121000Red hair yellow eyes = akuma. We were told it was red hair red eyes (and simply assumed there was a mistake because of the purple energy).If things go badly pull out the giant, I don't think it'd be possible for gannondorf to break the chains.
>>20120432I think we should let Rider keep fighting for now. We have something of an upper hand, and we need more info so we can deduce the nature of the shield and Ganon's class.If we get into trouble, the Doom Horse is the best option. We can't count on the horn working.And don't be afraid to use your (non-phantasm but still dangerous) sword either Rider. Lances are only so good in close quarters. They're not spears.
>>20121040Actually, we are fighting an inferior copy of the legend of Ganondorf.Lets not despair before time.
>>20121052Recent Akuma has red eyes, bro. And this guy went out of his way to make his servant look like someone else.
>>20121080Look like someone else and use moves similar to him - akuma / gannondorf are damn similar though so it was very good misdirection.
>>20121066He can be one of two Ganondorfs. Master, is there a big crack in the front of his armor? If not, then we have the one from Ocarina.Unless he's from Smash Brothers, but that would just be stupid.
>>20121080>>20121125The kid could else very much be a Scrub Brawl player who thinks Ganon is top tier
>>20121052There's plenty of art with Akuma having red eyes.
>>20121166He's been depicted with both yellow and red - so it doesn't really matter.
>>20121080>went out of his wayNo, he pretty much threw a sweatshirt on him. No more effort than we did, unless all that stuff about fighting games and tiers was supposed to suggest Akuma to us. Pretty smart move, if so.
>>20121224Very smart move. We got outplayed. Pardon the pun.
>>20121040You do remember he's always beaten by a hero, right?
>>20121297He's gonna lose then. WE'RE SAVED!
We only have to win.There's no witnesses. We only have to win this fight! "Rider. Give it your all." I say, getting to my feet. "Let's show them what you can do." Astolpho laughs, drawing forth is lance again, thrusting it into the air then slamming it down hard enough to launch into the air. When he comes down, fire and wind blast from under his feet as he takes the reigns of a horse of fire and wind. His pretty face grows confident, and he stares down Ganondorf, thrusting out his free hand.Come at me, he gestures.Ganondorf swoops forth, fist reared - and Rider rears his horse, the hooves kicking out at Casterand slamming into his face. Caster is launched onto the ground, stumbling from the impact and slapping his face to put out the fire. And then Rider charges. Ganon thrusts a palm forward, but even though a shield erupts forth, Rider just goes right through it to trample Ganon under, shoving him into the dirt. Again and again. Like a figure eight, he loops again and again, slamming down the King of Evil, as if to say, 'This is no place for you.' But he doesn't dissipate. After ten of these runs, Rider stops and stares. Nothing seems to be happening, but Caster's master is running.
>>20121297The small child like hero!
>>20121347Something BAD is going to happen isn't it?
>>20121347Rider is more mobile than either of the enemies. Trample Caster into the dirt again- and while he's getting up, ride his master down. With the master dead, a stalemate with the Servant is our victory and we can abandon the fight.
>>20121347Get on the fucking horse. It's time to run down Ganondorf's master. or run the fuck away.
>>20121347Oh shit, phase two. Back off, back off!
>>20121347Shoot him again.I bet Ganon get ready to strike, he'll need all mana, no shield for the kid.After that, get the fuck out of here.Same for Rider.As much distance as possible.
Isn't it obvious, we just beat Ganondorf, so now he's going to turn into Ganon.
>>20121347Caster might be preparing to REVEAL HIS TRUE POWER (oh god I hope none of the belmonts aren't in this war).I'm not exactly for killing children - maybe catch the master, have him declare he lost and transfer command spells (and servant) to us.
>>20121399If necessary, threaten the masters life to force him to give up command spells and servant.
>>20121347Okay, I think that Rider can run down the Master in 2 seconds flat. Also I think something nasty is coming, either from a third party or Ganon is going to go batshit powerful so it might be best if you get on Astolfo's shoulders or something like that as you can't ride the horse. If you refuse to do this based on it looking silly I will play nothing but dubstep in your head for the entirety of the Grail War.
Hit the Master like a fucking freight train, right the fuck now.Luke, you might consider running away in the opposite direction to be a good idea.
Master, aim at the Master just to be sure.Get Astolfo ready to Horn his way out of this if something like a big NP or spell shows up.
If the enemy Servant transforms into a hideous monstrous pig could Rider you know ride him with that riding rank A+++?In less silly matters, kill the enemy master. Kill him with everything assessable tool at hand and them determine what to do after.
"Rider, the Master!" I call, and Rider turns to run down the kid. I look away as he's blown apart, but Rider's face is like stone. He turns, as I do, to face the downed Ganon - who isn't there anymore.He's in the air, face scowled in anger, as he shows us his fist - a golden triangle glowing brightly. With a roar, he grows, massive, a bipedal beast at least thirty feet tall. Twin blades appear in his hands, and he roars as he takes a single step. Despite the death of his Master, he continues on. Despite the lack of Mana, he continues on. Prana crackles on the edges of those yellow blades. Rider looks to me, then at his enemy. He wants my orders.
>>20121347I guess the only question is whether we get OoT Ganon or TP Ganon. If we're really unlucky, this won't even be his final form.
Prepare to run, summon giant, chase down enemy master and threaten him to hand over command spells and servant or die.Interestingly he said he'd taken out 3 other masters already, unless pig-ganon is *incredibly* strong I think he may be bullshitting. This war may be progressing faster than imagined.
>>20121681TIME TO RUN BITCH!
>>20121681Can you ride it Rider?
RUN LIKE HELL, IF YOU CANT TRY TO RIDE GANNON LIKE ITS FUCKING RODEO; ALFONSO MANAGED TO RIDE A GIANT; GANNON ISNT WEIRDER THAN A GIANT!!!!
>>20121681Do we want to meet Ganon in combat and force him to expend enough mana to dissapate, or do we want to run and risk him forming a contract with another master.
>>20121692There is no more Enemy Master, there is only chunky salsa. >>20121681Astolfo, can you ride that thing? Just a thought.If you aren't sure then just grab master and high tail it. I'd rather not use the Horn, which others might hear and identify, or summon the Giant. Just get a fair distance away and change mounts to avoid identification and keep an eye on Ganon, see what he's up to.
>>20121681Run. On Rider's shoulders if you must.Watch Ganon, see if he shows any signs of fatigue. If yes, go for the kill if it seems viable. If not, run faster.
>>20121736Seems similar to his giant, in that yes he could ride it, but its unlikely that it would ever submit to being controlled by him. Ganon might be interpreted as a divine beast too.Rider *could* skirmish with ganon and cause it to expend mana, or we could just run away.
Discretion is the better part of valor Master. Since we aren't here to be heroes, let's leave the Servant (Caster?) to his rampage. We get out and maintain a healthy distance while observing the Servant to make sure he doesn't obtain a new master or pull any strange tricks. We watch and make sure that the Servant dies of prana starvation. Should he not fade away, considering how the war seems to be moderated by a Ruler, we might have this problem taken care of by other Master Servant combos or perhaps other members of the church. If that happens we will get to watch and get information on the other participants. Should Rider be constrained by his morals, although I disagree with this plan, have him use the flute to prevent civilian casualties.
Ride to somewhere trapped or difficult to access.
"We need to run!" "But-""Trust me!" He frowns, then rides past me, taking my hand and pulling me up. "But the fi-""I can't hurt you. So neither can my mount." he says, "NOW HOLD ME TIGHT!" he cries as we launch away. I hold him again, letting put a little gasp as we move. Ganon tries to keep up, but cannot, falling behind eventually. I can feel his eyes staring at me as he reverts back - and leaves, launching into the sky and away. Faster than we can keep up, faster than my eyes can follkow, he escapes into the city."Well..." Astolpho says. "Did... we win?" he asks as he dismounts.
>>20121924No. He can always contract with another master.
Master, we need a Circle shiny enough to call Caster's attention. We need another Circle to downright fuck everything in his casting. That last one needs to be way subtle, ask Arrie.
>>20121924Yes and No. We took out the Master, Ganon will either need an additional prana source or a new Master before he falls apart.He ought to run out of Prana soon enough though if he doesn't get one.Look at it this way, we expended next to nothing, took out a troublesome fellow and bloodied this guy's nose. Master start setting up tracking spells to keep an eye on Ganon, maybe add something additional to your Mana Buses to act like familiars and send you information in addition to the packets.We might have been able to take him, but we may have needed to burn through a lot of Prana, maybe even used the Giant to do it.
>>20121924Sorta. He's gonna need a Master. Hell, I'm surprised he didn't ask you Luke.
>>20121924Not entirely.We secured an advantage. We now know about his powers... And there aren't many good magi left around. Everyone either a Master or left the country for the duration of war. Or so I think.But he still can find someone to make a contract with.Or get by on mana snacks.Consider it... Burning a command seal. Not enough to count as victory, enough to count as success.However, other Masters probably have seen the fight. Horse is rather telling considering your identity.So, the usual clusterfuck.>Also, Master, congratulation on fighting your insecurities. "Hold me tight", yeah.
>>20121924We got the master, but that man dosen't know when to die. If there is a way to remain in this world he'll find it.
>>20121924We came close enough to winning. It was a fight we wanted to avoid in the first place, and we got out of it with one enemy dead and no losses but some secrecy- it's likely that the flare attracted at least one party to watch us, even if we didn't sense anyone. Hopefully they weren't able to identify you.But since we didn't actually want to be fighting at all, getting away with no injuries or significant expenditures of resources is a win.
>>20121689If I recall correctly, TP Ganon wasn't bipedal, so this is the OOT Ganon.>>20121681I recommend running away or tailing it, but if you do fight it, the weak spot is the tail. He'll probably only die if the final blow is with a holy weapon.Don't summon the giant.
Find a Ruler, ask for the current toll, both total and Ganon's.
>>20121924Partially. He might contract another master, but he'll run out of prana pretty fast by himself. That transformation stunt cost him a LOT of energy, so his levels are low. If he goes on a kiling spree, the Rulers will intervene. Check to see if you aren't being followed (that fight must've attracted the attention of someone in the neighborhood), then go home. Give Astie a prana-refill if he needs it, then go to bed. Check with the church/Rulers in the morning to see how many masters and servants are left.
>>20117618>Astolfo>CANNOT STOP LAUGHING AUGH PINK HAIRED KNIGHT!
Worse case scenario Ganon is alive and draining people for prana. He'll be a lot less of a threat though.Best case scenario we killed a Master and a Servant without any losses.I believe this counts as a tentative victory.
>>20122066That looks like a chick. And we put in a dress.
>>20122039>Check with the church/Rulers in the morning to see how many masters and servants are left.Very much this, I get the feeling that the little snotnose was lying to us about how many masters he beat.
>>20122092... could have been worse, you could have gotten Loli the Ripper.
>>20122092I still can't believe he let us talk him into that.
"He might find another master - but not a good one. They'll all be taken, I think. He might even have to resort to a normal schmuck with circuits like mine or worse. We've bloodied his nose and walked away unscathed. It's a success."He nods. "Good. Then I'm cooking something great tonight!" he says as we walk back. A small laugh escapes my mouth as we get home, and Arry hands us both small pieces of chocolate. "I wanted to make it easier to take in. So I've added some blood to these chocolates. Please, you must have expended a lot to come back alive. How'd it go?"I tell her about what happened."I see." Of course, I didn't mention anything specific about Rider's attacks."Rider, you should get a shower..." she says quietly. She's right - we both smell of sweat...
>>20122141I still can't believe that we talked someone into talking him into that.
>>20122141He's a guardian knight, if it will protect us or give us a smile he'll do it (sometimes not very happily, but it works). The reasoning we gave (it'll throw people off his identity) is also fairly sound.
>>20122152Take a shower together.You both are healthy males after all. It can't be helped
>>20122152Well, you wouldn't want to run out of hot water and take a cold shower. I guess you'll have to take one together. Nothing we can do about it.Also it's more efficient.
>>20122152Oh boy...Master, I think you're gonna need to share. Otherwise Al's secret is out.
>>20122102I would not be so sure. Big G might have been the brains AND brawn of they're outfit.
>>20122152OK...She is geased, so we probably shouldn't expect any traps aside from Astie.And she know he's a man already because somebody was a dumbass.Go to shower.Are you sure you have enough hot water for the two?
>>20122152She's feeding you candy with her blood in it. Which she made especially for you, so that you would enjoy eating her blood.This woman is fucking crazy.Also, she might be trying to send Rider off to shower so that she can talk to you. Or try to have sex with you. Not sure.
>>20122222I think she's way too fucked to bone dude.Rule 1. Do not stick dick in crazy.
>>20122222Sounds like we found /x/ as another master in the grailwar... Send rider off to have a shower so we can talk to arry then have a shower of our own afterwards (it seems like arry may end up trying to jump in the shower with us).
>>20122152Take a shower with Astolfo, if you don't then Arry will probably try to fear boner you, seduce you, or otherwise make life difficult. Also on the chocolate front, if you feel like you need more Prana right now then take a piece, otherwise do not.
>>20122213>>20122174>>20122182>>20122184Enjoy it, but you just know that HE will be standing there, right behind the shower curtain.
>>20122288>Slim Jim watchingI am just fed up with that dude. Really am. Can't even let Master perform Mana Transfers with any sort of privacy.
>Take a shower together!I... No! Come on! What do you think I am, some kinda... You're not going to shut up until I do this, are you?
>>20122378Your choices are clear:Creepy lady and her creepy chocolate ORManly shower with your manly servant.Do it faggot.
We've done this for the our last 2 Masters, and we'll do the same for you. Trap or not, we are gunning for 3 out of 3 Masters doing the horizontal tango under our service.
>>20122378Pretty much. Mind you, it MAY actually prevent you from dying horrible death. I meant, you get crazy bitch with you, you know that some horrible abomination checks on her from time to time. And she is likely to try to seduce you. Do you want to risk it?Just try to hide your boner. It may be awkward.>htsellk complexYep, time to cure Master's complex.
>>20122378Check if Astie is up for it first, you don't want to pressure the lad into anything. Like betraying his Roland or something.If you're going to be a baby about it, go shower after him. Ask if anything happend to Arrie while you were away, if she noticed anything on the news, stuff like that. Then go shower while Rider cooks a victory meal. You big baby, you.
>>20122378No, no we won't. All perversion aside it's a good idea. It'll strengthen the bonds of kinship between you and it means that Arry can't get you alone which we all know can't lead anywhere good.Master, this is the Grail War, throw away your self doubt and any insecurities you have with your sexuality. Take a fucking shower with Astolfo, it's the clear tactically sound choice. We're a fucking hivemind, we aren't going to judge you for being attracted to Astolfo, let's face it he's hot.
>>20122378Up to you master. Personaly I would not shower at all arount this woman. Her servant sort of.... lurks.
I do not see why you cannot simply wait outside the shower until Astolpho is finished then take a shower. It's less uncomfortable for you and if anything happens Astolpho will be right there to intervene.
Don't forget to work the shaft.
>>20122378I'd much.... rather try-showering with..... arry.
>>20122378If you shower with him, the lady might decide to come shower with both of you.If you shower without him, the lady might decide to come shower with just you.The choice is yours, man.
>>20122534No. Arry's batshit dude.RULE NUMBER ONE IN RELATIONSHIPS: DON'T STICK IT IN CRAZY.NEVER EVER.
>>20122583Since when... has that... ever-stopped the....Captain of the-Enterprise?
>>20122617Rule number two: Never listen to Captain Kirk.He's a master of horrible decisions.
>>20122378At the very least, we find out if Astie is a trap or a reverse-trap.
Has anyone seen my moms?
>>20122431"Astolpho, shoul-Ah!" His hand snares the collar of my shirt as he pulls me into the bathroom and slams the door shut. "What-""Quiet." he says. "It's clear to me that you're not secure around me." he says, snapping his fingers. His armor vanishes into thin air, leaving the little black dress as he kicks off his boots. "Well, I..." I manage, as he reaches back to unzip. "Well what?" "Look, I just don't feel comfortable about it." "What is there to be uncomfortable about?" he asks as the dress falls. "Two guys taking a shower. Come on, really, is your society so backwards as to think that taboo?!" "Well..." He pulls me close. His skin is pale, but not chalky, his body smooth, yet slightly defined. "Listen, me and Roland shared a wife for quite a long time and neither of us saw anything wrong with that." he says quietly. "Now strip!" I stammer, but undress, as he peels off the last of his clothing. He bends over to work with the shower. His body is definitely one of a warrior, a fighter, even if it is small and slim as he steps into the shower. And he's definitely male.And no, I'm not saying anything more about that."You don't take off the ribbons when you bathe?" "They're important." he says, "Now wash my back."
>>20122640Master Luke doesn't have Spock and Bones to bail him out when he goes a pants-on-head retarded. Kirk does.>>20122653They're busy.
>>20122673Psst. How big is his dick?
>>20122691>master LukeWe have made the requisite star wars jokes, yes?And Master: you either put up with our pervyness or you buy and flip through a trashy romance novel/Babes of the grail war gone Wild to satisfy our needs
As much as I enjoy teasing our master as to his insecurities, you other Bobs need to get your boners under control, its getting a smidge obnoxious.Master, in this case it might be wise to accompany Astolfo to the shower and at least wait outside. Arry is a dangerous element and being alone with her has risks even with the geass.It depends on how much you trust her.
>>20122673Uh... do it but NO HOMO.
>>20122673Alright Master, now that you're getting over it, you should do as he says (wash his back) and discuss your next move. What time is it, anyway? I don't even know how much time has passed since the Ganon incident.Also, we keep avoiding her blood for a variety of concerns. If she's geased, shouldn't we be in the clear? She can't harm us, directly or indirectly, unless we missed something. Either way, do any of you other Bobs think she might get a tad bit upset if we keep avoiding this? I can't quite judge her character enough just yet.
>>20122673Do it, master. Bond with you servant. You two need to be able to trust eachother, so that's important. Ask him to share something from his past, you share something from yours, get to know eachother for a bit, man.
>>20122717I dunno about the Star Wars jokes; I missed the first thread. Just showed up in this one after mourning Mistress Liz, Attie, and Master David.I'm still taking this very badly but I'll try to help our new master.
>>20122728>boners.The fate franchise attracts fujoshi
>>20122673Remember: it can be perverse pleasure.Or it can be MANLY MOMENT OF BONDING between two fighters in the horrible war.Your call.We will enjoy it either way.>observing odalemYep, we will observe.
>>20122763I still don't think they're dead. but until we can confirm their situation we should help mr. TOTALLY NOT GAY MAN
>>20122795I'm thinking the same thing, fellow Bob. It's not much but it helps me soldier on through the pain.
>>20122763What are you talking about? Zelretch dicked them into another world. This is the truth.>denial.jpg
So, I just caught up with the last thread and I'm kinda wondering: why are we teamed up with the slenderman?
>>20122875Because we weren't very well going to say no? Something like that wants to be friends, you say yes, are glad it's not coming after you, and hope something else kills it before it inevitably turns on you.
>>20122875Don't say its name, you fool!
>>20122875You may have just condemned us. Slim Jim takes no prisoners.
>>20122875Also, we are calling him Fatman, Slim Jim or skinny.There is a reason for it.While he's not as... direct as Shagnasty, calling his name is still not a good thing.
>>20122875master, you may wish to prepare a $20 dollar bill
>>20122875You did that on purpose you fuck!
>>20122701Can it.I sigh, washing his back. "Sorry. I'm just not used to... Well. You wear a dress, man! It takes some adjusting!" he laughs. "I'm sure you'll learn to love my style." "Why do you bother with it, anyway?" I ask. He goes into thought, arms crossed. "Roland once lost his wits." he says. "He became quite, unresponsive. Dull. He was my comrade. I wanted to see him smile again. I jested, I joked, I dressed oddly. We once joked that I could pass as a lady." he pauses, "He's right, let's be totally honest. But if you must ask - these dresses, these ribbons... They are all a badge of honour between brothers. You should be proud to have a servant so dedicated!">>20122875FEARFUL LEGEND INVOKED."Ah... I must seem..." "It's alright, really. It's cute, in a way." he turns to face me, looking up at me. "You remind me, just a little, of Roland. When he was witless." he smiles up at me. "I'll make you into a respectable knight, if I must." he says, hands on my shoulders.
>>20122957you know.... if that actually works, I might explode from both laughter and rage at that stupid meme colliding.
>>20122875The who?Oh, you mean Fatboy. I'm not really sure either.
rolled 20 = 20>>20122983Calling it now, we'll get barely more than a passing mention of tall slim and faceless and our paranoia will be ramped up to such heights we screw ourselves over in one way or another
>>20122875Gaia damn you, don't say that name ever again! Call him Fatman or Slim Jim.
Guys, when did we find out Slim Jim was her Servant? I don't remember this at all? Did she tell us?
>>20123044It was confirmed. We had our suspicions before though.>>20122983If "Respectable Knight" involves you taking it up the ass, decline. Always be the pitcher, not the catcher.
rolled 56 = 56>>20123044picture is her crest.i think its a safe assumption
>>20122983Master, danger. Probably not immediate, but it is a good time to get some Arrie's blood. Be on your guard. Don't leave the bathroom for awhile unless something appears right here. In this case, run. Use the horse, go straight through the wall.Before going out listen to the sounds outside. Get Astie do the same.If you hear anything suspicious, don't go there.
>>20122991Blame masters pitiful mana.Master, if you see a tall dude in a suit, ignor him.
>>20123072Should have caught that. Thanks.
>>20123070>If "Respectable Knight" involves you taking it up the ass, decline. Always be the pitcher, not the catcher.Oh shush, you pansy. Real men do both, pitching and catching. Variety is the spice of life.>>20123081Yeah, this.
>>20123044Actually, that fearful legend was the first concrete proof we had unless there's something about arry's symbol that I'm unaware of.
>>20123117It's the Operator symbol. He's always around when it appears.
>>20123117it's the mascot for the slim jim mythos. forget which of he billions of blogs used it first (may have been marble hornets) but it stuck
Hey master, you have a laptop? Cause there's this hot new free indie horror game you should try....>>20123040that would fit his style. he mostly seems to just hang around and let his targets go insane from paranoia
>>20122875YOU MOTHERFUCKER. FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU IN THE EYES.Time to start getting Arries blood, she gave you the chocolates right? if you still have them on you, start nomming them *now*.
>>20123135Rule of thumb: if it refers to fatman, assume Marble Hornets did it first.
GUYS, CHILLWE JUST NEED TWENTY DOLLARS.
Anybody know how long Shagnasty's fearful legend lasted, and what rank it was?Also, Ganon. Can he use the Triforce of Power to sustain himself?
>>20123117You don't want concrete proof of slimjim that alone is bad enough, we've had enough information to go off of, and we were given thread with stat-sheet.We also had a *fun* conversation with arry where it was basically confirmed, or at least enough for the NON RETARDED to get the hint and not speak its fucking name.
Guys, I think we need some nightmare retardant. Have somehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhF-Mue_dyM
>>20123117When you're mucking about with ELDRITCH HORRORS THAT GET STRONGER FROM YOU KNOWING WHAT THEY ARE, you dont need 100% confirmation - in fact you start playing things really fucking safe at about 10% confirmation.
>>20123219Shagnastys was really scary. It powered him up, and summoned him to your location. Slim Jims is less powerful I think. Otherwise he'd be in the shower with us.
>>20123281implying he's not standing outside the curtain RIGHT NOW
>>20123070"That doesn't involve..." He laughs a little harder, then pulls me closer. "Only if you want it to." he whispers. I push him away, stammering, and he only finds more humour in it. Still, those mischievious eyes shine with promises, and then he shrugs and goes back to rinsing and washing his hair. "Now let me wash your back." he says simply. I turn around and he hums.You guys are all flipping out about this a little too much. I've already had some of Arry's blood, and so has my Servant - in fact, he has to have some later tonight to replenish lost stores. "Hey, are you sure you're okay with taking mana like that?" I ask. He shrugs. "Not like there's another way. Unless..." his eyes narrow again as a smile creeps across his face. He laughs as I groan. "I jest, I jest."
>>20123281Now that I think about it, Eliza was pretty fucking manly.
>>20123295master, we can tell when certain properties of certain types of creatures are called into effect.This one was called into effect about 30 seconds ago
Guys, why do Arry's seals disappear? I feel like an idiot.
>>20123295The only other way would be taking the prana by kidnapping and killing humans.We should be glad that we don't have to resort to that
>>20123295I still say you should be on your guard.OK, continue bonding, just check for weird sounds before leaving.
>>20123337Hes an eldritch abomination.they probably flicker out when hes hitting on females or grabbing a beer equivalent in his home dimension
>>20123337Because slim jim doesn't technically exist until he does shit.So the seals go away when he isn't existing. When he does exist they come back.
Guys, I think we're good on the whole fearful legend biz. I mean think about how the thing operates, it always starts off as blink and you'll miss it encounters before it does anything overt
>>20123295He likes teasing you to! Oh, we would get on like brothers.
>>20123346There's also Mana Transfers.Wink winknudge nudgeclick clickwhistle whistleYou're too prudish, master. You obviously find him attractive. Not saying you should jump his bones right here and now, but you should keep an open mind. It's gonna be a long-ass war, who knows what'll happen in the coming weeks?That said, ask him about the ribbons. He seems pretty open about his past and they intrigue me.
>>20123381Ok. Fucking terrified now. This Bob is going to curl up in a corner and cry.
>>20123295Proceed with the NO HOMO bonding master.
>>20123346Not so. Master set up some circles on the buses earlier, so we will get small amounts of mana from the riders, not enough that they'll all be killed. Keeping a low profile is good.>>20123415This. Just keep your wits about you.
>>20123396Take the pituitary gland corner.Black, white and grey are..... in one of the others
>>20123396Chill in the Medula with me.
>>20123309No, no, no....Mistress Liz was androgynous-looking....Okay, I'm depressed again. Gonna go curl up in a corner and cry again for a while.
>>20123478Hold me Magos!
Since we've got nothing to worry about for now, I am hosting a farewell party for liz, David, Attie, and company in the left hindbrain.Strong mental alcohol will be present.
>>20123517Sure. NO HOMO.
>>20123337Her servant is like one of those fun atomic particles - he doesn't exist unless he's being observed and he can probably be in multiple places at once.
>>20123541Sounds like an idea. We can talk about old times and wonder about what all went on while we were gone.On another note: David has a daughter and a granddaughter. I guess Miss Lisa popped out a girl.....now I've done it. I feel even worse that I never got the chance to meet our niece.
...You are all fucking bizarre. We rinse off and get dressed again. Well, I get dressed. Rider puts on a robe as we exit. We inform Arry she has the couch and we have the bed. She raises an eyebrow but says nothing else, then pushes forward a small glass, which Astolpho drinks deeply, then coughs. "There. I'm back to operating." he says, stretching. It's getting dark. What should I do now?
>>20123685First off, talk with Crazy Lady a little more. Did she use a catalyst with her summons or not?
CALL CHURCH AND RULERSTHE STATE OF THE GAME IS PRIMORDIAL.
>>20123685Turn on the news and chat with Arry until we see something interesting.
>>20123685You paid for legion, which speaks with the voice of a thousand.Keep in mind we have NOTHING to do but talk to each other when bored.Or somehow initiate lesbian threesomes while still being though entities.point is, you get what you paid for and we are a goddamned hero encyclopedia
>>20123685Hm.What wards do you have around this house?Ask Arrie if she can set up more.Can you set up some mundane traps while you're on it?After that, don't know. You can speak with Arrie and Astie more. Some small talk.Or you can go to sleep and check up with Rulers at the morning.
>>20123724He won't be gone yet. We can wait until morning.
>>20123685Find out how many masters/servants are left or how many have been eliminated. I don't think the master we killed was telling the truth when he said he'd killed 3 other masters.
>>20123742by the way, did you ever tell us WHO you heard about us from.
>>20123685Chat a bit with Arrie, see if you can get her to open up a bit more. The geas will ensure she doesn't screw us over, but there's no harm in getting to know her.Please keep all windows and curtains shut when you go to bed. Also, c... could you leave a night-light on? I'm sorta afraid of the dark.
>>20123685>...You are all fucking bizarre. Of course we are. We who are Bob the Skull have our weird quirks but we helped our two previous masters win a Grail War and kick werewolf ass....all while getting them laid at the same time!Trust us, Master Luke, we know what we're doing.>>20123713>>20123724Voting for these two courses of action.
Definitely check the news. We still haven't heard anything about the explosions, have we? Besides that, you could definitely talk with Arry.
>>20123728Social linkin and info gatherin at the same time. I like it!
watch tha' news wi tha crazy lass, an' prep some moneh in case tha slim lad shows 'is face
>>20123787I don't remember us getting Eliza laid.She did that on accident.
>>20123822Who was the one who suggested that they take a bath together? US.
>>20123822Yeah, Liz may as well have been catnip for how fast Atlanta jumped on her.
>>20123685Close windows, don't look out of them while you do so.While you're doing that, tell us where you heard about us.Also tell us the best joke you know of.
>>20123847I guess she really likes small chests.
>>20123840It was mostly Attie wanting to bone her bro.
>>20123822Quiet, you.>>20123840THIS! Therefore, we got Liz and Attie in that bathtub together.
>>20123862So kirkbob, black bob and white bob walk into a bar...
>>20123770I bought you. There was an estate sale. Spent a good amount. >>20123776"...So, did you use a catalyst?" I ask, as she looks up from staring at her Seals, which are active. She shakes her head. I turn on the television. "Blackouts are still rampant in the Seattle area as experts seek an explanation to the highly localized lack of power. An update to the exploded yacht yesterday - it seems many survived." I frown. There were some minor protests in gig harbor... But other than that... I move to flick it off, but Rider stops me. "The kidnappings continue in the Key Peninsula. Several families report that there was no contact yet, and many fear it to be simple rape murders, not abduction." Arry's seals pop out.
>>20123822We encouraged her to help protect David, we fostered her "kinda-sorta" bisexuality and encouraged her to get closer to Atalanta. Preeeeeety sure that counts.
>>20123876>The kidnappings continue>Arry's seals pop outoh god.... what if he's only part-timing as a servant?and the rest of the time he's doing his standard thing?
>>20123876prepare some defenses master, now.
>>20123876He's been busy. Bet you anything it's children.Can't she make him stop?
>>20123876Oh dear. This is bad. It's either Slim Jim or Ganondorf or another Caster causing this. Ask Crazy what she thinks.
>>20123909...then there's nothing we can do about it without pissing him off. Just let it be.
It would be nice to reign him in, if possible. Probably isn't though. Does she have any control over him at all?
What Slim SHOULD be doing is taking out our opposition.
>>20123928but.... they're fucking kids man. They're just.... they're fucking kidsFuck, bobs, this is gonna play hell on our psyches. I'm almost tempted to join black and white just to forget this shit
>>20123950There are the Command Spells. Those carry a hefty amount of power. But, what if he retaliates?
>>20123876>An update to the exploded yacht yesterdayCan be Henderson.>Arry's seals pop out.It is actually encouraging. It means he popped out of existence. Our invocation of Fearful Legend might've ran off. Or he's coming for us, we'll find out soon enough.>>20123909>>20123925She doesn't control him.He simply goes around doing his thing.And now we can't do anything about it, too.She can stop him for a time with seals... Thats all.Master, more wards, more traps around. If it isn't dark.If it is, just check on war update and go to sleep.
>>20123962He will. Eventually. We just need targets for him.>>20123925I don't think she could. She wouldn't do something like that even if she could. It's like 4th War Caster and his master. They're perfect for each other.
>>20123986Wasn't yesterday a "don't kill other masters yet" day? I'm more worried about the blackouts.
>>20124033>don't kill other masters day>kill other masters>other mastersThe populace does not fall under this.
>>20124033>Implying Masters didn't set explosives to go off at 12:01.
>>20124069Why blow up a yacht, though? To send a message? Besides, it says most people survived the explosion.
>>20124107Send a message? No. That's counterproductive.It may have been intended to kill a lot of people, but didn't (as you have pointed out). Also, the explosions went off at 12:01 if I recall correctly, therefore >>20124088
>>20124107maybe there was another master on board?its not like wizards know the meaning of overkill
I call up the number we were given for the Rulers. All I get is heavy breathing. "Hello?" It feels like someone is attempting to glare at me over the phone."Give me that!" grunting and the sound of smacking flesh sound over the phone, and Jeanne's voice comes over clear. "Hello, this is Joanna. Can I help you?" "I need an update on the defeated." "Currently, the servants who have been felled are... Blue Saber, Green Archer, and White Saber. Any other questions?" "Who was that who picked up?""Green Ruler. He's not supposed to pick up the phone, sorry." she hangs up and I frown. So... bedtime. I walk into the room, and Rider looks up at me. "You're free to sleep on the floor, if you're not ready. Your face looks like someone is punching it."
>>20124212can we have a ightlight? please?the idea that he's out there, for real, kidnapping kids is making it hard to sleep
>>20124161Or maybe there was no restriction on attacking another masters property, and whoever did it studied up on our tactics from the last war and decided to preempt that particular strategy. Whatever the reason, we aren't going to find out by speculating. We should keep it in mind though, might get more information later.
>>20124212Holy fuck. He really DID kill three Servants.
>>20124212>Blue Saber, Green Archer, and White Saber.Two Sabers, by a Caster. We better pray Ganon dies tonight.
>>20124212Tell him about the servants Ganondorf beat before Astie wiped the floor with him. ...We're going to win this thing, aren't we?Also sleep in the damn bed with him, stop being such a little baby.
>>20124212Master, sleep in the bed with him. I don't want you to be complaining tomorrow about a sore back or some shit like that. Just sleep in the bed and hold your adorable servant close to you. He likes you, despite the fact that you're grumpy and annoying, return that in kind. Luke, this is the voice of wisdom you spent a pile of money on, this is the advice from the hivemind who WON the last grail war for our Master and then unlocked near godhood on our next one. Sleep in the bed with Astolfo.
>>20124306No homo though.
>>20124212>FastWheelsRage.jpgThe strongest Servants!Fallen before Caster of all people.That's a lesson, Master: all previous presumptions shall be forgotten. For all we know folklore Caster is MUSCLE WIZARD.Also, sleep in bed. The closer you are to Astie, the safer. And you need some good rest.
>>20124299I'd like to know this to. It's to bad there's no all seeing administrator of the war that can reveal these things to us.(Wink wink, nudge nudge.)
>>20124236Yeah, you have a good point other Bob. Luke, don't turn us off tonight, I don't like the thought of being all voidy and turned off considering the circumstances.
>>20124212Right so, 3 masters down - I don't think ganondorfs master was the one who took them all out.We can probably attribute the yacht explosion to one, ganons master to maybe one.Pretty sure our allies servant falls under white.
>>20124212I...caster....killed....how the....hes a godsdamn CASTER!THAT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN! CASTER IS SUPPOSED TO SUCK IN SINGLE COMBAT BUT BE FANTASTIC AGAINST ARMIES!ALL THE RULES ARE FUCKING GONE!WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU MAGES DO?!
>>20124371I said it before, I'll say it again.Zelda Satan.
>>20124371It's Ganon. He's a battle mage.
>>20124306I sigh, sliding into bed. He slides in behind me, and it's only a couple moments later that I realize he's not wearing the robe. Or... anything, really. God. Damnit. It's gonna be a long war.((End of thread 2.))((TAIGA DOJO))
>>20124490...how fucked are we?
>>20124363Sorry *servants* we're not sure how many masters were killed, and we know that ganondorf isn't out of it (yet).Like I said, I don't 100% believe that it was ganon who murdered the 3 other servants, but as we've got no way of confirming it yet.
>>20124490Do we get to know who the defeated servants are or are those [spoilers?]
>>20124490Identities of killed Servants?Were they killed by Ganondorf?
>>20124490Is Rider gonna rape him?Otherwise, I'll just leave this here.
>>20124490what did that fearful legend do?
>>20124505Literally or figuratively?
>>20124490How fucked are we because somebody said "Slim Jim"?Who are the now defeated Servants? Did Ganon take out all three of them?
>>20124519That's not King Solomon.
>>20124529I know. But when you consider the Emps in 40k lived during that time, he COULD have been Gilgamesh. And it's pretty much all but confirmed he was Saint George.
>>20124236Nightlights are a liability, they kill your night vision. If an Assassin somehow got in during the night, he could seriously handicap us by disabling it.
>>20124525Yes.In one fucking day.Essentially, they all thought he was berserker, and the revelation he was Caster made it easier for them to get punched so hard they were nailed to the god damn sky.
Odds of Ganon sitting in his Workshop siphoning a leyline?
Have you created all the current Servants exclusively for this particular game, or are you using some of the ones that were designed in the various Servant threads?
>>20124549So, who were they? The 2 Sabers and the Archer who lost?
Have the rules been expanded enough to allow for fictional Riders that pilot mechs? Because that could be a fucking horrible problem.
>>20124583David, Churchill, and Gwyn, Lord of Cinders.
>>20124623JACK Churchill? Aww, that would have been something to see.
>>20124567Some of them will be from servant generation threads I imagine - 28 seperate servants is a lot to generate and ego did say he liked some of them (especially baron samedi).Fatman was in one of the servant generation threads, and he did release a chart of servants he was considering using (same as the chart with a lot of blank spaces in it), although there could have been a lot of changes to it.I'd like identities on the defeated.
>>20124614>Servants riding mechs>Astolfo may breathe life into inanimate objects... allow them to change their form into a useable mount.GENTLEMEN!TO MASTER'S LGS!WE MUST ACQUIRE AN URBANMECH!
>>20124623>DavidKing David?Also, No Lancers yet. Surprising.
>>20124623Do you have their stats?Also, I was tempted to stat out Gwyn in every servant building thread we had, but didn't think I could do him justice. That's eerie.
>>20124623What was the weird thing with Ganon and his masters mana connection, and did it have anything to do with the Triforce of Power?
>>20124623Updated.Can't imagine how we missed the fight between gwyn and ganon. That shit would have been spectacular.
>>20124668David was the archer, most likely david from the fable of david and goliath.
