You're sitting, waiting in the burned out husk of a school when Rider finally shows up. "Assassin's Master?" Rider asked as she approaches cautiously."Yes." You say, standing and extending your hand in greeting. She seems to stare at it through her blindfold for a moment before shaking it."My Master will agree to a temporary ceasefire for now, and a willing exchange of information. As well, he apologizes for not being here to meet you, but with you having Assassin..." Rider says, trailing off."Understandable. So, what information are you willing to give us?" You ask."The complete list of defeated Servants." Rider offered, "As well as the locations of two more Masters. How much I can tell you is dependent on what you can tell me."How much will you give her?Status Sheet: https://docs.google.com/document/d/16AOv8GSjf4opT8VW__owsvon55nds23BfWDoFXdKPH4/editPrevious Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25978980/Nubum's ebook: http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDbTwitter is @umarchauhdry>There, despite delays and life in general, I'm back! Ha! Assuming I remembered my old information correctly, anyways...
>>29776973Well, Rider wanted to know about the servant that was summoned here. We can confirm that Monster was summoned here.There's more that we COULD tell her, but it mostly depends on how complete this complete list is. If it's all 10 of the 35 summoned, we could confirm that the monster summoned here is the same one that she knows is dead.If Rider and her Master only list the Servants killed in her grail, then we have a lot more information to offer about the grails, but I'm not sure we should offer that right away. We don't know how far this alliance will go at this point.
Quite the crowd we have here this afternoon.
Indeed. And 4chan is occasionally throwing a fit with my computer.
>>29778228Just nothing to say really.And can anyone answer me as to why everyone on /tg/ has their trip code always on?
>>29777360I'm willing to support this.
>>29777360yeah, let's support this
"Well, to start with I can tell you that a Monster class servant was summoned here. A Japanese spirit, with a strong connection to spiders. She had superb stealth skills and attack capabilities." You tell Rider."That matches up with what my Master confirmed about the Grail. In addition to that, I would warn you there are an unusual number of servants in this war. Already, my Master and I have defeated another Rider." She told you."That matches with my info. I and my allies have confirmed that there are about thirty-five servants in this war. Five grails in total, it would seem." You confirm. Rider sighs in frustration."We knew something was odd, but we hoped it was only two grails. That it is five is...frustrating." Rider grumbles."Do you have anything else worth sharing with me?" You ask her. Rider nods."I figure I can at least tell you who has been defeated. Rider, Corrupter, Monster, Two Archers, Lancer, Caster, Avenger, and Two Assassins." Rider told you."No Sabers? Or Hero?" You ask, somewhat concerned. Rider shakes her head."Shit...I've encountered two Sabers, Hero, and Villain. This...could be a problem." You tell her."Yes...it sounds it. You fought those servants?" Rider asked. You nod."Hero is akin to a Saber, and the first Saber has already attempted to kill me once. The second Saber I thought was defeated because I killed their Master, but...Shit." You curse."My Master is always willing to work towards the defeat of a class as strong as Saber. If you need some...minor assistance, please let us know by calling this number." Rider says, offering you a business card. You take it, your mind too busy stirring with this new information to truly acknowledge the item as Rider prepares to leave.Stop Rider, offer something for the last of her info, or more help-What?Go home, reinforce defensesGo hunting-For who?Find Villain, enlist her helpWrite in

Rider hops out of the window and manages to run off. "Yuri, start scouting for Villain. We're going to need her help." You order the invisible servant wrapped around you as you leave and head back into the city. A swarm of wasps spread out from her with a furious buzz. You continue to head towards the infested hotel, where you thought she had been hiding out. "Got something." She whispers in your ear. Villain seems to swarm out of the nearby buildings and coalesces in front of you."...Yes?" She asks."We have a problem. Marrianne's Saber survived. She might be looking for revenge." You warn her."I see..." She mutters."I'd appreciate any help you can give me in finding her and her new Masters. And anything you could do to help me kill them would also be appreciated." You tell her. She shrugs indifferently."I will inform you if I encounter them or find them, but...I probably will not join you in the fight unless I must." She tells you. You sigh."Are you sure? Is there nothing I can offer you to convince you to help me?" You ask."...Enter a Geas to kill your Servant once this fight with Saber is over." She answers.Agree, but sacrifice a Psuedo-ServantAgree, sacrifice KyubeyDisagree, offer something elseDisagree, fight against Saber aloneWrite in
>>29781080>[X]Agree, but sacrifice a Psuedo-ServantTechnically, we agreed.
>>29781080[x]Agree, but sacrifice a Psuedo-ServantJust be careful of the wording.
>>29781080>Agree, but sacrifice a Psuedo-ServantBe REALLY Careful with how the Geas is worded. We have Saber, Lancer, Monster, Caster, Rider, and an Assassin. I say sacrifice Rider.
>>29781406Something like "I, Nicholas Ignatiavich, will sacrifice our Servant after fighting Saber."Our, as in us and Coob's servant.
"Alright. Give me some time to draw up the Geas and I can do that." You tell her, already mapping out the magical contract in your head. As useful as your servants are, Rider is the least useful right now. She's an acceptable sacrifice for now."...That seems acceptable for now. I will want to look it over before I make my final decision. I will, however, let you know when I find Saber or her new Masters." Villain agrees, dissipating into a swarm of insects again. You let out a frustrated sigh as you leave."Don't worry, Master. We can handle this. We beat them once, when they were prepared for us. We can do it again, when they are without support." Yuri assures you."Yes...but at what cost." You muse.Go to the university, prepare with the othersGo scouting yourself for SaberDraw up the contractGo looking for other alliesWrite in

>>29782116>Go to the university, prepare with the othersWe're might be fighting three Servants. If Hero and Saber are dead, I doubt two Servantless Masters happened to wander by and form contracts at almost the same time and then leave peacefully. Chances are a third Servant is involved somehow in keeping them both alive.Oh goddammit, it's Medea, isn't it?
>>29776973Wait the fuck? It's back? Jesus christ I didn't expect this. I've forgotten half the shit we did. Going to hit the archives.
ITS BACK.That said. Its pretty unanimous right now
>>29783605I'm afraid what might happen if we summon HER.
>>29783775>ded master. ded cubes. ded world. ded servants ded everyone.
You slowly make your way back to the university slowly, eventually finding your way to Tomoko's room. Inside, you can hear her and Assassin talking softly, their words unclear. You knock on the door, and after a moment of shuffling Assassin opens it."You...don't look good. Did something happen?" She asks, a small note of concern."Saber is still alive. I don't know how, but she managed to find a Master or something." You tell her."...I can and will kill her." Assassin said darkly, "Just tell me where she is.""I know. I'm just worried about her finding us first. Or managing to catch one of us alone. Nobody goes anywhere alone. At least two servants at all times. Okay?" You tell her as you step inside the room."Is it really that bad?" Tomoko asks from the table she was sitting at. You nod grimly."If she was smart enough and prepared enough to find a replacement Master then she's smarter than we anticipated. We can't risk anything with her, this time. When we strike, we strike hard and fast. And we cannot let her catch us off guard." You say."...Then no more going out alone! You and I stick together at all times!" Tomoko tells you, pointing at you. Behind her, Assassin grins impishly."It's probably for the best. How is your magic doing? Still giving you problems?" You ask her. She shrugs."It still sometimes gets...excited, I guess? And does more than I ask it to. Like, if I decide I want to try and mimic Assassin-neechan's stealth, it might give me her hair or something too. It tries to manifest more than it needs to, I guess." Tomoko said.Work on Tomoko's MagicWork on a familiar or twoWork on making a Mystic Code for the servantsWrite in
>>29783775And here I thought a Witchpocalypse was the worst thing we could do. I'm hoping summoning her won't happen, as this quest was made before rebellion.And a day or two before Fate/Extra CCC so no crazy Servant classes from that.
>>29783980>[X]Work on making a Mystic Code for the servants
>>29783980[X]Work on making a familiar or two.That effect isn't all that bad while we could always use more mystic codes an familiars.

>>29784068Oh crap...Let's not try to summon her.
>>29783980>[x] Work on making a Mystic Code for the servants
>>29784031Nah witchpocalypse would eventually get wreaked when the church and mages and vampires and shit get together.The absolute worst thing we could do is make a horrible wish.
>>29784088I don't think cubes would try it. She would be EX rank easy she could rape Gaia for larwls and giggles. If we could really summon her we wouldn't need the grail because she would be better if we had control.
>>29784225Then again, the Grail could possibly nerf the hell out of her to compensate.
>>29784194It seems like the church doesn't really have a strong presence in the area. You'd think 35 Servants would be enough to get the church panicking slightly but nope.
>>29784247Grail doesn't nerf things. More it can't summon certain things at all.The spoiled image is above nasuverse god tier and if the grail can't summon Odin I can't see it being able to summon that ever.

You spend the next few hours trying to carefully craft mystic codes for your allies. For Assassin you spend quite some time enchanting and remolding a set of kitchen knives. She spends quite a bit of time hovering over your shoulder and watching."So...what do these do?" Assassin asks."They're extendable knives. You can lash out with them to strike up to eight feet away." You tell her."Useful." She says, picking it up and hefting the butchers knife experimentally. "Thank you for this." She says."It's no problem." You assure her. You spend some time to also work on enchanting a cloak for Sayaka, weaving metal strings into the cloak to allow it to stiffen to be as hard as a shield when magic is put into it. Before long, though, you grow tired and call it quits for the night."Good morning!" Tomoko declares, pulling the covers off of you. You stifle a groan as you sit up.What do you do for the day?
>>29785042For now I'm thinking we should scout and reinforce our defenses. Play it safe.
>>29785042Try to collect materials for building stuff.
>>29785130>>29785097Maybe both? Collect materials while building up our defenses?
>>29785097>>29785130Little of column a & a little of column b
Assassin serves you and Tomoko eggs and bacon as you try and plan out your day. "Yuri. Can you head out into the city and collect some supplies for me? Anything that can be used as a weapon or armor, please?" You ask the air next to you. Yuri appears, and curtsies."Most certainly. Shall I take Caster with me?" She asks. You nod absentmindedly, and she disappears. After you finish breakfast, you work with Tomoko to clear her room, moving everything to the sides of the room. On her floor you begin to draw out a complex circle in mercury. At the same time, you advise Tomoko how to make her own circle with her blood. She follows your instructions to the letter."Alright, now when I tell you to channel your magic into just put a little bit in, alright?" You tell her, each of you sitting at opposite ends of the combined circle. Tomoko nods, swallowing nervously. "Alright. Three...Two...One...Channel!" You tell her. Her blood twists and smokes slightly as your mercury twists and they fold up onto and over on themselves until it's compacted into a small palm sized symbol."...wow..." Tomoko mumbles. You shrug, having seen similar before. Although her skill for a first timer is impressive."Now, let's get everything back in place." You tell her."Alright." Tomoko says, helping you to move everything back. As you get done, Yuri and Caster come back through the door."Honeys, we're home!" Yuri sing songs. She sets down a pile of stuff. She managed to get a snub nosed revolver, a butterfly knife, a bug zapper, a rather interesting looking mask made of orange and purple with an almost hypnotizing gaze, a book written in a language you can't understand, and she managed to find what looks like an old shield. It was probably some family's heirloom.Use one of those items for a Mystic codeSend out scoutsScout with TomokoWrite in
>>29786384[X]Use one of those items for a Mystic codeMask. Mask. Mask.
>>29786384The mask is probably completely unimportant, just leave it in a place in which it could easily fall into some easily manipulated young woman's hands.But seriously, don't make a focus out of it. maybe the shield.

>>29786646Oh...Enchant the shield.
>>29786646Honestly the mask seems the less conspicuous. Tempted to wear the mask though and pretend it has powers.
You spend several hours trying to magically reinforce this shield and enhance its natural history. If a family kept it for this long, it certainly has some history attached to it. However, you are interrupted when a collection of insect coalesces into a small cloud above the table as the sun is setting. Blood and mercury begin to creep up the walls, spearing out towards the insects who deftly disperse carefully to avoid the attacks."We have spotted two Sabers in the warehouse district. If you wish to attack them, then I suggest going now. As well, if you wish me to help you had best have a Geas prepared." The bugs announce in a buzzing voice before dispersing themselves. After several tense moments the blood and mercury retreats again."...A Geas?" Tomoko asks."I agreed to make a sacrifice in return for her help." You tell her. She gives you a disapproving frown, and sighs."So then, do we want to try and get them?" Tomoko asks.???
We might want to summon a sacrificial pawn. Just tell cubes to summon the most useless magical girl he has after we win. Then kill her.
>>29787539What if he summons one of the first iterations of Madoka? Or Homura?
>>29787348Lets call rider and see how much she is willing to help. She did say minor assistance against saber class foes.After that I think we should check the warehouse out and see what they are doing there.
>>29787757Pretty sure he can decide what he summons so that is unlikely. Something like that is a trump card for later.
>>29787857Mm. I thought that he couldn't specifically choose which to summon. Can't remember.
>>29787934He has a choice. Before he summoned Mami he told us that he had the perfect Servant in mind for the job.
>>29788028ah, okay. Like I said, been a long time. Also, supporting this>>29787828
"I think we'll see what we can find out." You say, pulling out the business card Rider had given you. You dial the number up quickly, and after two rings a young man picks up on the other end."Rider's Master speaking." He says."Assassin's Master speaking. Just wanted to let you and your servant know that there are two Sabers meeting in the warehouse district, if you want to join me in some crowd control." You offer. There's muffled discussion on the other end for a bit before he answers."Rider will be there to see what she can do. We won't be making the first move, however." He informs you."Alright. Thanks." You reply. You hang up and turn to your collected Psuedo-servants who had manifested in a large pile on the bed."We're going." Sayaka and Lancer say at the same time before you can even open your mouth. You shrug. "Alright, fine. Ayase, Chiyo, give them support." You order, "As well, this shield is for you Ayase. And Sayaka, this cape is for you.""Yes, sir!" They say, taking the proffered items. They disappear into wisps, leaving you alone with Kyubei, Jack, Yuri, and Tomoko."Now, we wait." You mutter. Tomoko looks worried, whilst Kyubei sits there calmly, tail swishing back and forth. Jack places a reassuring hand on Tomoko's soldier. You take a deep breath and connect yourself to Sayaka through Kyubei. Your servants manifest on a rooftop across from Rider who approaches cautiously."Who are you?" She asks."We are here on behalf of the Master of Assassin. We are their allies. They told us to expect you." Ayase says, taking the lead position. Rider makes a thoughtful noise, cocking her head to the side curiously as she seems to calmly analyze them."Not exactly the greatest servants I've ever seen." She mutters. Ayase shrugs."Strength in unity, though. I am Caster, the red and blue ones are Lancer and Saber, and the one in leather is Rider." Ayase introduces."Nice to meet you. So, what's the plan?" Rider asks.[1/2]
"Well, we planned to do a grid based search. We'll split up into pairs and start doing a spiral search in with one team going clockwise and the other going counter clockwise. If you want to float out and about, and immediately come to our rescue when the fighting starts, it would be much appreciated." Ayase says. Rider nods, and they split up. Sayaka and Lancer going in one directions and Ayase and Chiyo head in the opposite direction. They spend an hour roaming before Sayaka and Lancer spot them discussing something in hushed tones as they walk around, near where your old warehouse was.Alert the others, have them wait until their all togetherSurprise attack!Caster should summon someone.

>>29788715[X]Alert the others, have them wait until their all together.Best possible movement would be to have them stand away and watch while the others move to attack.On the other hand they should presume they have been detected already since they lack any really stealth skill.
>>29783775We just have to see how crazy she is and CS her to care about us as much as Madoka the moment we summon her and we're fine.Probably.
>>29789940She would just shrug it off. She is on entirely different tier then command seals.
You send a mental message to Ayase and Chiyo telling them to warn Rider as they made their way over. You warn Sayaka and Lancer to wait until the reinforcements come. As Rider and the others appear, Sayaka and Lancer jump off the rooftop and charge the two Sabers down."I'm back!" Sayaka taunts the male Saber, her wild blow being easily knocked aside by his sword."Feh, persistent cockroaches." The female Saber curses as Lancer launches into a weaving assault on her. Chiyo and Rider launch into an attack from behind, moving too quickly for you to keep track of. Two black blurs scooting across the battlefield, supported by Ayase's magical attacks. The two Sabers eventually move to stand back to back, beginning to show the strain of blocking the constant attacks. Every time one of them manages to try and attack Lancer or one of the Rider's, Sayaka interposes herself. She's constantly healing and bleeding from several cuts, sometimes an arm or strip of flesh hanging from her body."Is this all you have? Are you truly this weak?" Sayaka demands, barely noticing as another sword is lodged into her rib cage."Feh...Saber, we should retreat." The female muttered. The male saber grunted in agreement, turning aside another blow from Lancer and Rider. "One hundred and eight blade of Muramasa!" She yells as swords seem to sprout from the lantern on her hip. She grabs the hilt of one, drawing it and slicing the very air around her, blasting everyone back with a burst of wind. At the same time, she and the male Saber turn and run down an alleyway. As the servants turn to follow, the very wind seems to push them back and fight against them.Call the attack offPush the attackYou can Tomoko could probably cut them off with Assassin and CasterWrite in
>>29790281Wise Up!The 108 Blades of Muramasa A++This is a collection of 108 blades forged by the master Swordsmith Muramasa. They have strange and inexplicable powers said even to cut through reality, and once drawn must taste blood before being sheathed again. Those who possess them fall quickly into depravity and insanity.
>>29790281>[x]You can Tomoko could probably cut them off with Assassin and Caster
>>29790281[X]Push the attackLets not try and cut off two sabers with a assassin and a caster. That can only lead to pain and ass rape from magic resistance.Though my first thought would be summoning a meduca to cut them off and then witching it within range so they would be trapped in it's barrier. Issue there is we know rider is around to see that we can do this.

>>29790281>[x]Push the attackCan't really go all out with rider present and giving up just doesn't sit right.
You give them a mental command to push the attack, but the wind is constantly rebuffing them while aiding the fleeing Sabers. Eventually, the group of Servants comes to a stop."Well...that's annoying." Ayase mutters. Rider shrugs."We've at least forced their hand into revealing a Noble Phantasm." She said, "Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to return to my Master." She says disappearing."Well...fine then." Ayase mutters. She and your servants disappear, heading back towards you.You take a deep breath as you return to your presence in Tomoko's room. "How did it turn out?" She asked."We didn't manage to defeat them, but Marrianne's Saber used her Noble Phantasm. The One Hundred and Eight Blades of Muramasa." You tell her. Tomoko's face scrunches up in thought."That sounds familiar..." She mumbles. You shrug. The name Muramasa sounds familiar, but it does not seem to fit what you know of this woman.>I've got to get going guys. Hopefully, we can pick this up next Friday. I'll post on twitter a day or two ahead of time.
>>29791277Not gonna archive it?
I'll archive it if someone will help me think of a good description, I'm horrible at them
>>29791925We back now, Have chat with rider, Discover saber lives and gang up on two sabers.
>>29792350Someone beat me to it
Just going to toss this out for later readings.On our current grail Cubes is linked to only servants Savior, Ruler and Hero remains according to Riders info.We might be able to assume she has no information of Heroes death but it is possible he survived. As for the other Grails I believe it is unlikely it would summon 2 of the same class. So we know at minimal there is two deaths over 2 grails. Due to the assassin, archer duo.The random factors we don't know would be caster, and lancer.
