The Holy Grail War. An relatively obscure event by Magi standards hosted in the far east, originating from almost two hundred years ago. Hosted by the Tohsaka and Einzbern families, the former a relatively new Magus family seeking to earn their name utilizing the Holy Grail. The latter a family with over a thousand years work behind their name, forced to work with the fledgling families of the Tohsaka and Makiri.The Makiri's techniques once employed, were almost discarded by the other two families after the failed first attempts to utilize the Grail. Now a dying family with little to it's name, it desperately grasps for the cup that can grant it's wish, lest it's short history be extinguished.However, although the Holy Grail was set in place for and by these three families, the ritual itself required seven participants. This is where you come in. You are a participant in the Fourth Holy Grail War, a soon-to-be Master fighting for the omnipotent wish granting device. The question is, who are you, and why are you here?>You are a well established Magus from a long-line of Magi, joining in the Holy Grail War to only further emphasize your Families' power and superiority. Backed by your strong Magical Crest, you will likely be the strongest Magus in this Holy Grail War.>You are a fledgling Magus, shamed constantly for your thin blood, you had taken a risk. Joining the Holy Grail War after obtaining a relic, which could be utilized as a catalyst for summoning a Servant.>You are a Freelancer Magi, participating simply out of curiosity rather than dedication to family. You are in possession of several techniques and abnormal Magecraft techniques, but your real strength is your information gathering. Even as you're entering Japan now, you have information on all the suspected Masters in the war.(Note, I retain the right to veto anything which comes of the following. Anything too absurd but possible, will result in several penalties on the character.)>Write in
>>36428935How likely would it be to have someone stumble upon a simple kind of magic in the Nasuverse?Because that might be interesting. Some guy who accidentally found a spell and knows fuck-all about magic. Even less than Shirou.He knows only this single spell. And it's not swording.
>>36428969I was sort of thinking of something similar.>>36428935I'm not familiar with the Nasuverse, but is it possible to accidentally be a magician without intention? That might be fun, give us a bit of more mundane special abilities (intellect+physical strength/power) and drop us in with a single kind of spell/just a hint/notion of magic, make us try and work things out on our own.
>>36428935>>You are a fledgling Magus, shamed constantly for your thin blood, you had taken a risk. Joining the Holy Grail War after obtaining a relic, which could be utilized as a catalyst for summoning a Servant.I like backing the underdog.
>>36428994There's a case of it in Fate/Stay Zero. Guy had no clue, accidentally summoned a Caster.
>>36428969Imagine winning the lottery ten times in a row, that's the sort of luck you're springing there.. Even Shirou was taught by Kiritsugu. Ryuunosuke Uryuu, the master of Caster in Fate/Zero even had a spellbook made by his parents, on top of that his Servant was afflicted negatively because of that as well.
>>36429031But someone did invent the most basic spells at some point. Shouldn't they occasionally be re-invented by random people?I see your point, though.Voting for fledgling magus. Don't think we could play the information dude properly.
>>36429031>>36428994Then I guess I'll vote for>>You are a Freelancer Magi, participating simply out of curiosity rather than dedication to family. You are in possession of several techniques and abnormal Magecraft techniques, but your real strength is your information gathering. Even as you're entering Japan now, you have information on all the suspected Masters in the war.If this isn't an edgelord or these connections are of the shady/criminal kind.If they are/MC is, then>>You are a fledgling Magus, shamed constantly for your thin blood, you had taken a risk. Joining the Holy Grail War after obtaining a relic, which could be utilized as a catalyst for summoning a Servant.I expect the first option only says likely the strongest because of self-confidence and skewed self-image.
>>36429030On top of being from a Magus background, shown by the book from his parents, the successful ritual on top of that was a complete fluke.So in the end, it's honestly not the sort of choice I'm looking to QM for in this quest. Especially considering this isn't as relaxed as the Fifth Holy Grail War.>>36429068For Freelancer, think more along the lines of Aoko, Natalie or to a lesser extent Touko. Essentially a Magus with connections and odder abilities that doesn't associate as much with the Clocktower.
Alright, since there doesn't seem to be any votes, calling it for Fledgling Magus.
>>36428969>How likely would it be...At the very least, it's not impossible. Thaumaturgical techniques find their basis in breathing and walking, and some people just instinctively learn the absolute perfect method of breathing and walking when they're children. Even if they never learn anything about magic, they usually end up doing it by accident at least once and dismissing it as coincidence. Needless to say, this is not the kind of person who ends up in a Grail War.
You are Lynette Arkell, fourth generation of your family line. With little to your name but a will and a barely existent Magical Crest, you decided to gamble your life and your family name on the Holy Grail War.Shoulder screeching in pain as you heft the large black bag filled with your various tools and relic you face out into the bustling airport. Despite your mouth being as dry as the Sahara you swallow down whatever may be there. Clutching the small black box containing the relic you managed to obtain in your time during the Clocktower.Almost kicking yourself for reminding yourself about throwing away the entire tuition fee for the Clocktower by pawning off your entire families' belongings, you shake your head and attempt to focus. Deep breath in. Deep breath out. But you had a chance to win. And that meant you could shove it to that arrogant fuck of a lecturer back in the Clocktower, and all of the thick blooded snobs who looked down on you. Your fingers turn white as you grip the relic's container harder, the one thing that could win you this war was inside it.Sliding into a Taxi, you scrunch yourself up into the corner. Hands trembling as you open up the the container once again, to reveal a...>Ball of hair.>A long extended feather of pure white.>A small piece of a shattered mirror
>>36429419>A small piece of a shattered mirror
>>36429419>>A small piece of a shattered mirrorI wonder...
>>36429453What do you wonder anon? I'm not even sure what to pick.
>>36429461I'm ignorant of the source material by and large, but mirrors have a LOT of mythology behind them, especially caster type stuff (witches especially).
>>36429460>>36429453>>36429452Seems like we've got a consensus here. >>36429461Sorry for being vague mate, don't want to give out a servant at random though.
>>36429491At least we didn't steal a catalyst.
>>36429506Yeah, you're not Waver.Anywho, I'm going to be a cunt and reveal who the other servants were. Then get to writing.>Ball of hair.Cao Cao from the Three Kingdoms Era. The hair was the hair he sliced off in place of his own head when he defied his own military discipline. >A long extended feather of pure white.Medusa. Relic itself was a feather from Pegasus, which is one of her Noble Phantasms in the Nasuverse.>A small piece of a shattered mirrorSoon to find out.
>>36429551>we could've had Medusa>I didn't vote for it because I thought it was some angel thingFUCK
>>36429572To be fair, it was kinda obscure that one.
>>36429577Still, fair enough.
>>36429577Yeah, her pegasus mount is really fucking weird to most people.I hope we chose an awesome one.
>>36429632In one myth, Pegasus was born from her blood after Perseus killed her (the father being Poseidon).
>>36429657>In one myth,There were others where she has some nonnection with Pegasus? I thought there was only the blood thing.Hell, I was always confused why going for Pegasus didn't just auto summon you Perseus.
>>36429688There's always another myth, though I don't see others of Pegasus. Though discovering he had a human brother was weird.
It may be tiny, but there is a sliver of a mirror sitting inside of the box. The legend has it, that the last one who opened it was blinded by the full mirror. Closing the box so you wouldn't displace the fragment, you hug it to your chest, heart beating like a big brass band. Although you had this absurdly rare relic, it still didn't mean you had won the war completely yet though.You still had the Tohsaka participating in the war and the even more powerful and experienced Einzbern as well. You had to keep on your toes and remain focused, slapping yourself lightly on both cheeks to wake you up, you take a look out of the window. You could see the docks from here, the large containers sitting by the bay.Thinking to yourself, your current objectives are: - Setting up a Headquarters. - Finding out information on other masters- Maximizing the summoning of your Servant.However, to do the third you'd need the first. Pulling out a map of the area, you could see several areas of which you could inhabit. You should probably pick one of them.>Take a house in the residential district, one of the more eastern styled ones so you're far from the Tohsaka estate.>There's a large apartment block with a pent house suite at the top. With a bit of magic you could take the high life there for a bit.>Be cautious. Go into the sewers and do your business there.>Write inSorry for that delay and shorter post.
>>36429784>There's a large apartment block with a pent house suite at the top. With a bit of magic you could take the high life there for a bit.Hopefully people will be cautious about involving ordinary people in the war.
>>36429784>Take a house in the residential district, one of the more eastern styled ones so you're far from the Tohsaka estate.I can't imagine the sewers being all that secure, or sitting well with our Servant.
>>36429784>Be cautious. Go into the sewers and do your business thereBetter safe than sorry
>>36429803So, white knight mode?Eh, I guess I'll also vote for the pent house. It grants us moral high ground.
>>36429830Well, that and being able to see the area around us.
>>36429784>Take a house in the residential district, one of the more eastern styled ones so you're far from the Tohsaka estate.Don't make it obvious.
>>36429784Is a pent house kind of like a commieblock? I need something to relate to here mates.
>>36429784>There's a large apartment block with a pent house suite at the top. With a bit of magic you could take the high life there for a bit.
>>36429868it's like a really nice hotel suite
>>36429784>Take a house in the residential district, one of the more eastern styled ones so you're far from the Tohsaka estate.I'm shy of penthouse suites ever since Kayneth "Fast Wheel" El-Melloi proved what a horrible idea they can become.
>>36429868It's the best room in a hotel.The one on the roof, with a kickass overview of the city.
>>36429784How easily can magic be detected in Nasurverse? I think the pent house might be a bit too showy, get us noticed more easily possibly, something normal-seeming could be better.Shame there's no middle-class apartment option.
>>36429903Privacy matters. Neighbors are bad.
>>36429903If the magus is competent you have to get right up on the edge of their territory before you'll notice anything, but you can't mask it entirely.
>>36429868Like this.>>36429903Don't worry about it being detected too much. You're not that show-y with magic, although you'll want some privacy with the servant summoning.>Shame there's no middle-class apartment option.That's more the house in the residential district option. From this point on however,
>>36429938>From this point on however,Come on OP, don't keep me on the edge of my seat.
>>36429784>>Be cautious. Go into the sewers and do your business there.
>>36429990Whoops. From this point on however, please assume write ins are always available.
>>36429813>>36429854>>364298973 for House.>>36429816>>364300022 for Sewers.>>36429872>>364298032 for pent house.Seems we're more Velvet than El-Melloi.Writing now.
The cab ride comes to a close, sliding out of the car you grimace as your shoulder is again weighted down by your equipment. With a sigh coming from your lips, you take a quick survey of your surroundings, while the world begins to grow dark with the approaching rain.A small look around, and a purchase of an Umbrella leaves you with three suitable places for you to inhabit.> A small house with a single man living inside it. Apparently he works as a "Freeter" This is a person who in Japan takes up simple work that can be completed quickly with short hours, small pay, but allowing for greater free time instead of working to become a salary-man.> An absolutely huge Japanese style house. Completely uninhabited. You're not sure you can jump the walls though.> A middling sized house. A young couple used to live there, but haven't been seen for a few weeks now, likely on holiday.Sorry about the slow and small posting, the choices earlier in the thread are making it hard for me to judge Master/Servant movements. Should be over soon.
>>36430307> An absolutely huge Japanese style house. Completely uninhabited. You're not sure you can jump the walls though.Uninhabited is perfect. Jumping the walls is hard, but there may be another way in.
>>36430307> An absolutely huge Japanese style house. Completely uninhabited. You're not sure you can jump the walls though.It's confirmed abandoned and we won't have to worry about noise. We just have to get in. Is there a back entrance, or a front gate we could climb?
>>36430307We don't know reinforcement.Well technically we don't NEED it because no one is nearly as stupid as Shirou as is.> An absolutely huge Japanese style house. Completely uninhabited. You're not sure you can jump the walls though.So long as we can get in then we have a large place to dump traps everywhere.
>>36430307>An absolutely huge Japanese style house. Completely uninhabited. You're not sure you can jump the walls though.
>>36430307> A small house with a single man living inside it. Apparently he works as a "Freeter" This is a person who in Japan takes up simple work that can be completed quickly with short hours, small pay, but allowing for greater free time instead of working to become a salary-man.Placing a memory charm on him so he thinks we are a relative visiting him.
>>36430307>> A small house with a single man living inside it. Apparently he works as a "Freeter" This is a person who in Japan takes up simple work that can be completed quickly with short hours, small pay, but allowing for greater free time instead of working to become a salary-man. She's a MangusHe's a freeter Together the fight crime!Next summer
>>36430307By the way OP, what gender is MC?Also, can we just assume we know X and Y basic spells, or will we eventually get a list of some kind?
>>36430423We're Lynette Arkell, female.Assume you're about Waver-Tier in about everything. You're definitely not a combat mage in this scenario however.
>>36430423>Lynette ArkellI'm presuming female myself.
>>36430423Lynette is a girl's name no?
>>36430445>>36430447>>36430448That's what I was assuming, but wanted to be sure and didn't want to influence OP by mentioning my assumption.
>>36430331>>36430335>>36430340>>36430342Writing now.Picture related, your new home.
>>36430531Oh fuck.That's something bad, isn't it? I never played the games, even though I really should.
>>36430531Feck. Cropping didn't work. Oh well.
>>36430531What a dump.>>36430551Emiya Household. Although right now it's more Yakuza territory.
>>36430531Great job /tg/. We're fucked.
>>36430551It's hard to tell from that image, but it looks very similar to shirou's home. If it is that's pretty good, a few areas we can use to hide us from sight completely
>>36430559>>36430579Oh shit I forgot that the building used to be yakuza propertyYeah we might be fucked
>>36430606If we go by those lines of thought it maybe was a good idea to not move in with the freeter, in the end the freeter would have turned out to be Ryuunosuke
>>36430606>>36430576>>36430559I doubt the Yaks would leave any property unused for so long.
>>36430808So what? Gun/illicit goods storage?
>>36430775Well at least we know mind control would work on him.
For almost one moment you try to jump the wall. Almost. You decide to check the door first, pushing on it lightly it gives allowing access. With a sigh of relief you enter into the household.The firm walls surrounding the premises are good to keep out prying eyes, you remark to yourself as you keep to the stone path. Although, weeds and grass are slowly eroding through even that, the green brushing against the bottom of your heels as you approach the house. Truly it does appear to be deserted, for several years in fact. The grass has overgrown, the little paper-wall-things that the Japanese use have holes inside them and the wood is undoubtedly rotting.With a sigh, you drop your bag and push the door shut. The area's too open on the inside of the house, it's positioning would allow for some well laid magical fields, but establishing an atelier would be tough. The design is far too open to the outside, causing mana to be lost. Then again, your spells aren't exactly going to be too effective against Servants anyway.There's a shed in the back, however that is most certainly locked. You could probably break it open with some effort though, you would need a crowbar or something magical however. Letting your bag fall to the mats in the middle of the large house, you let out a long sigh and fall on your butt. This is going to take a lot of work.Thinking back to your objectives, you re-arrange your thoughts.- Perform ritual at the right time for maximum efficiency (Midnight)- Find information on other masters+ Make sure this place has a bounded field, so you can detect intruders. + means it can be ignored, but is advised..At this point, you have several options to consider regarding information. You can easily create familiars to observe the other masters, but currently you only know of two. Right now you can sustain three familiars.You have all the ingredients prepared for the ritual tonight, so all there is, is to set up the circle.1/2
While I'm writing up my next post, if you have any ideas you'd like to implement like where to scout, who to focus on, etc, then please state it. Alterations to the ritual could have been made to specify a certain servant class, but that's locked in currently due to the relic.
>>36430842>- Perform ritual at the right time for maximum efficiency (Midnight)>+ Make sure this place has a bounded field, so you can detect intruders.
>>36430842- Find information on other mastersSend a familiar to observe the holy church, surely a master or two will head there to speak with the observer+ Make sure this place has a bounded field, so you can detect intruders
>>36430838I doubt it he must have Mental Pollution equivalent to Caster Rank, otherwise they wouldn't be able to get along that well.
>>36430842> Make sure this place has a bounded field>Find information on other masters - specifically, the Clocktower mageEven if we don't win the Grail War, defeating him will let us laugh in our lecturer's face.Trying to make a place inside the house to create the ritual would be good, though that shed is tempting. Mana leaking is bad.
>>36430842Set up a bounded field right away just in case. Don't want no undesirables butting in unexpectedly while we're preparing for our ritual.
>>36430886>Alterations to the ritual could have been made to specify a certain servant classConsidering Medusa really can't be anything but a rider or bezerker (possibly a shitty castet) does that mean Cao cao was our only Hope for choosing a servent class?
>>36430842>+ Make sure this place has a bounded field, so you can detect intruders.
>>36430999Backing this. We can do the ritual at midnight but having a non-mana-leaking area that's safe from intruders is pretty damn important.
>>36430842>+ Make sure this place has a bounded field, so you can detect intruders.Take care of this immediately, look around the house a bit, see if we can't find something to easily take care of that shed.
~Intermissions~His is the hand that glows with a red ripple, fingers pressed into the wrist. His is the voice which cries out for the chaos to blind the one who's chains he holds. To keep him inside the cage of madness he is trapped in. The scales of old light up with the spark of a newly born servant. His deep voice echoing throughout the halls cloven from the ground.A call answered.His voice calls out for thou the seven days clad in the Great Trinity. Calling him forth the guardian of the heavenly scales, from the great circle of constraint. A monster smiles, it's skinless skin crawling, pressing against that borne from the earth.A call answered.~Intermissions End~>>36431043>>36431034>>36431001>>36430999>>36430973>>36430955>>36430947>>36430896>>36431145Blood trickles through the lines marking the stone."Let silver and steel be the essence." Your voice intones off of the walls of the small shed. A heap of metal that was once a lock by your foot. "Let stone and the archduke of contracts be the foundation.""Let red be the color I pay tribute to." Repeated twelve fold, memorized without a fault. "Let rise a wall against the wind that shall fall.""Let the four cardinal gates close." A blue light began to glow from the finely etched lines of blood, wind from nothing pushing against your body. "Let the three-forked road from the crown reaching unto the Kingdom rotate."2/3
>>36431372Aha.....Hahaha.....Oh this does not look good for us.......
>>36431372We just awakened some monster in the shed, huh? Wonderful, and we don't even have our servant from the shard.
>>36431469Nah some unlucky bastard just summoned Bezerker.
>>36431469Intermission is another characters point of viewSounds like a berserker has entered the war
>>36431469>IntermissionI think someone just summoned Berserker.Good, that means WE won't accidentally get saddled with that bullshit.
"I hereby propose" A normal breathy voice warping into a fevered chant. "My will shall create thy body""And thy sword shall create my fate." Air scrapes your throat "Abiding by the summons of the Holy Grail""If thou dost accede to this will and reason, answer me!" The last of your words becoming a scream, as the final verse approaches."I hereby swear" Sweat rolled across your body as you faced the ever growing tempest of the summoning circle. "I will be all that is good in the eternal world.""I will be the disposer of evil in the eternal world." Determination had already filled your mind. This war was yours to win. The Grail yours to claim. Your eyes fixed upon the relic that would grant you victory."Thou clad with the Great Trinity" The echoing walls repeating your hoarse voice back at you. "Come forth from the circle of constraint."Your voice died unexpectedly in your throat, there was no more air. But you pushed, further and further until the words crept from your mouth. "Guardian of the Heavenly Scales" The final word.White was the world bathed, the summoning complete. Unknown to you, your knees had hit the stone floor, pain abstract to your mind. 3/4
>>36431372Someone just summoned an Angel as a Berzerker.Lads, this is going to end horribly.
>>36431573WatWhere's the angel part?
>>36431592Anon probably just misunderstood the "gardians of the heavenly scales" bit.
>>36431573Unless this is a different grail system than SN and Zero it's not likely to be an angel.Too much divinity, most wouldn't be in the throne of heroes.
>>36429111Damn it, I wanted to be a Freelancer or at least a Blooded mage. There's no advantages to being the bumble fuck who can't do shit and you can't do any of the cool stuff.
>>36431672We can do this, and that is enough.
I bet we will actually summon Tamamo no Mae
>>36431690Weaver did fuck all in the war as did Shirou. Hell, the sole reason they stayed in it for so long was the fact that they either kept out of it mostly (Weaver) or had an ally (Shirou).Nevermind how top-tier both of their Servants were.
>>36431694I picked the mirror hoping for herKind of wonder how her NP would be adapted for a quest, in game it just let you cast a full round of improved spells for no cost.
>>36431710Dude what.Shirou was an workhorse
>>36431741Unlimited Spell Works.To be honest, i would rather have Cao Cao.Its a new servant
>>36431744Because he had Rin and Archer to supplement his shitty abilities.>>36431763I'm hoping OP is based and is doing a new kind of Servant. Plus, a kitsune would be wasted on us seeing as we're a girl.
>>36431710Dude, Shirou did most of the heavy lifting in the Shirou-Rin partnership.
>>36431790MC a girl didn't stop tamamo in extra
>>36431790>Because he had Rin and Archer to supplement his shitty abilities.Archer was barely a help in Fate, what with the passive-aggressively trying to get Shirou killed all the time then jobbing, he was useful in HF mostly for his dying contribution. And you seem to be forgetting UBW, where Archer goes rogue and Shirou has to stab all the things.
>>36431694Man, I really hope not. She's really not a favourite of mine.Plus, I'd rather not have a Caster.
>>36431551I told you it was us that was fucked, guys.The intermission was a perspective switch slightly into the future to our Servant's perspective as it is being summoned.
Guys lets please not focus on trying to be a sex crazed beast, if we summon a cute girl
>>36431813>>36431837He'd have died straight up to Berzerker without Archer and Rin's help. He's only able to really fuck up Caster and her Master because he has both Saber and Rin to count on.Plus, nevermind their help against Medusa (both times). Rin also provides Shirou with assistance, peptalks and help on charging Saber. Without Rin, he's Waver tier. No, less.>>36431891I hope so. It would be interesting if we have to deal with Berzerker, considering how shit our abilities are.
>>36431907or a cute boy, fuck it
It's appearance wasn't that much different from that of a human being, but something was different. Clearly so. The power emanating from it transcended that of any human, magus or even Apostle that you had faced before."Are you my Master?" It. No, she. She asked politely. The moment left you speechless, the swirling impossible power in front of you would be under your control? The burning pain in your hand only furthering perturbing you.The large fluffy ears twitch for a moment, the yellow eyes trained upon you. For the moment, both of you are silent. "Um.....right?" Her voice breaks absence of sound."Yay!" The strange woman does a dance on her feet, spinning. "Contract established! Caster at your service!" You're almost inclined to question your sanity for a moment, is this how all servants act? "I look forward to fighting by your side, my dear Master!"Taking a deep breath, you open your mouth to question Caster vocally. But as you do, alarm bells ring in your brain. The bounded field had been penetrated, but you now have a servant. However questionable she may be, the evidence is embedded upon the back of your palm.>Take Caster and face the intruder>Have Caster take you away from this place, you can always return later>Write in
>>36431907It's fate stuff, can't be avoided
>>36431907How about we just generally sideline lust/romance?
>>36431694Fuck, how did you guess? Oh wait. I dropped hints everywhere.>>36431763I've got a few new servants lined up, as well as servants in other roles. Already dropped a few hints there.I apologize for any disappointment about your servant.But yes, that anon was right, and >>36431925 is me.
>>36431925>Take Caster and face the intruderFUCK YEAH MERLIN!
>>36431946This isn't Merlin. He can't be summoned since he isn't dead
>>36431946>The large fluffy ears twitch for a moment, the yellow eyes trained upon you>Large>Fluffy>Ears
>>36431925Can she have her take us somewhere out of danger's way but still able to observe or ambush if we want to?Or somethig, not sure if this is a viable strategy.
>>36431972Don't you know what she looks like? We just got an absolute babe for a Servant.An insanely powerful Babe if I remember correctly.
>>36431925>>Have Caster take you away from this place, you can always return later>Kitsuine serventUgh, fine whatever.
For those better versed in the stats of servants, could you tell me what sort of effects EX Luck might have?
>>36431998Tamamo is a fairly strong caster, you do get to beat Gawain with her
>>36432017Crazy bullshit, gives an auto-success on anything that requires a Luck roll.
>>36432017Taiga has EX Luck.She has stopped world destruction multiple times just by doing regular stuff through butterfly effect.
>>36432005>not liking kitsunepleb tier
>>36431925>Fate/Extra CasterGod dammit, I haven done her route yet.Dropped. Was it that hard to make three original servants for character creation?
Seriously? Not one touch Fluffy Tail vote? /tg/ is getting surprising these days....
>>36432017EX generally signifies both a really high value AND something that just doesn't fit on the scale.Like Taiga, someone with EX luck, isn't particularly "lucky" in her daily life but she can dance through a Grail War without a scratch just by blindly going about her daily life while people are dropping like flies around her.
>>36432086Theres another servant nearby, can't get her stabbed while we touch the fluffy tail
>>36432086You don't just touch it on your own, it has to be offered.
>>36432017Alright, well, first of all.EX doesn't mean "Better than A". EX means it's on a totally different level, abnormal.See: >>36432096 & >>36432055For example.Assuming you mean something along the lines of A++++++ Luck, then as >>36432046 says, you autosucceed any luck checks completely and utterly.Example: Gae Bolg can be nullified through high luck (A). A++++++, could mean that instead of the Spear piercing the enemies' heart, it would only end up only barely scratching them. That said, A++++++ rank luck hasn't been seen at all.
Can we get some stats for tamamo? Is it just the stats on the wiki?
Oh, I thought there would be original servants. Damn, things are going to meta up real fast.
>>36432166We've only seen one servant so far, there could easily be some originals
>>36432150Identity: Unknown. >Implying everyone doesn't know who she is.Gender: FemaleStrength: DEndurance: DAgility: BMana: A+ Luck: BNoble Phantasm: ?>>36432166There will be.>>36432076Sorry about that, but I didn't feel like introducing too many things to this, too many things to consider.>>36431946Face intruder>>36431981>>36432005Take away/scoutWriting for this.Sorry for the delay, internet was being very terrible.
You don't even need to motion to Caster, a single thought flies through your mind. With a bright smile, she sweeps you up in her arms carrying you like a princess. The world turns to a blur as she speeds you out of the shed in less than a single moment, the air rushing through your hair, as Caster settles calmly upon the top of the house. The light of the moon concealed by the clouds. A thought passes between you and her "Servant?" She returns it with a soft "No", motioning towards the entrance of the estate. A small girl had pushed open the door, breathing heavily as she hid behind the other. Very young, with black hair and a tattered dress. Pressing herself into the walls of premises.Caster's ears fall a little, a thought passing over to your mind "Shall we investigate, Master?" Double checking, you inquire again about any servants nearby. To which she answers that there is none.>Investigate the strange girl.>Go back to the shed and learn about Caster, that should take priority.
>>36431925>Caster>stupid foxgirl CasterEhhhhhhh.I'll see how this goes, but honestly, that reveal couldn't have killed my hype harder. The other two choices were infinitely superior.
>>36432588>>Investigate the strange girl.
>>36432633Also, try not to reveal caster to the girl. No showing non mage people magic and all.
>>36432596I'm more aiming for a Tamamo under Pierce than a Tamamo under FeMC/MC, if that makes sense. That being said, votes go where the votes go.Regardless, this quest shouldn't go on for beyond 15 threads at very, very max. And even then, Caster's in a great position to sustain multiple servants, so the choices are yours. If it's really done that much of a hit, then I'll likely re-make the quest with some tightened points, pre-writing and planning.>>36432609>>36432633>>36432646>>36432656Alright, done.>>36432679Caster can take another form where she's invisible, so don't worry too much about that.
>>36432712Most people seem to be okay with tamamo caster, I'm interested in seeing a grail war quest with a caster servant since I missed out on the one that was with caster Cu chulainn
Tamamo whisks you away to the ground, a small walk away from the girl. She gives off a silly wave as she dissolves into her incorporeal form. Taking slow and cautious steps towards her, you could hear her sobbing only increasing in magnitude. Finally you're in plain sight, and you can see her crawled up, tears streaming down her childlike face.Deciding it's safe, you step forwards. The girl looks upwards, her relatively straight black hair mattedwith sweat, tears and the earlier rain. Eyes widening in shock for a moment, you position your hands holding them palms up. She simply buries her face into her arms again, sobbing returning. With a sigh, you sit down next to her and bring her into a hug.Burying her tiny head into your chest, the two of you remain like that for what seems like an age. Finally you ask the question "Who are you?" Her eyes look up to you and whisper " S-sakura. Toh...Tohsaka Sakura "1/2
>>36432994Awww, now ask her what happened and kill who ever made her cry
>>36432994Does she moves like an expensive prostitute?
>>36432994Thoughts assail you. Was she bait? Had the Tohsaka found you already? How did they know you had summoned a Servant this early on? Where did they find you? The taxi, the airport, the plane? You bite into your lip, almost so hard you draw blood, heart pounding harder and harder in your chest.A few mental communications with caster confirm again, there are no servants. You're confused, what was she doing here? Why would Tohsaka's daughter be homeless and wandering around in the middle of the night? It doesn't make sense, it doesn't make sense at all. Sakura stared up at you with the stare of an innocent girl, who's lost everything.And here's where I'm going to end it today, it's getting late.
Well, any questions, criticisms, anything?I'll be around for a few minutes.
>>36433294So how many new characters can we expect?Are all the remaining players still the one in the 4th grail war?
>>36433294While I am not a fan of our Caster I quite enjoyed the quest so far and look forward to participate again.
>>36433381>Are all the remaining players still the one in the 4th grail war?With the exception of two, yes.>So how many new characters can we expect?Secret. There shouldn't be too many though.>>36433396Glad to hear it/
>>36433294So far it's a standard nasuverse quest first threadI liked tamamo in extra, and I wonder how far you or rather how far the other players will go with waifu stuff.Once we start seeing the other servants things should pick up. Hopefully the quest doesn't end with "everything you did is pointless because gilgamesh" like others I've seenSo far it's good
>>36433489>>36433489>So far it's a standard nasuverse quest first threadPretty sure most of them don't go defying the canon completely by having non-worm rape Sakura
>>36429419>barely existent Magical CrestCan you explain a bit more about this to someone who is not familiar with the source material?
>>36434319A magic crest is stored knowledge of your parents,grandparents, etc. At a certain point in their lives the parents will transplant the crest into their child, improving the child's potential with magic. This can go back for hundreds of years if nothing serious happens to the family.For this character, the "barely existant magical crest" simply means that the family isn't very old. If you've watched/read fate/zero we're pretty much Waver Velvet, a mediocre mage because the family isn't old, in competition with people like Kayneth, a fairly old mage family that's much more powerful.There are very few mages who get anywhere without a crest, Aozaki Touko is the only one I can think of off the top of my head.
Say OP, does our character have any specific magecraft that we're good at
Hey OP, could you just say what sort of NP would Cao Cao have?Would be a Summon Army NP
>>36432331>>Implying everyone doesn't know who she is.I haven't the faintest of clues and I am not the anon you asked.
>>36434860Her name has been said a couple of times in this thread i you really want to know
>>36434860The moment people saw that the smashed mirror was a relic everyone was already voting for it because they wanted tamamo.We all know who she is, even if you haven't played extra you should know just from this thread
I just finished the Zero anime recently, and I'm about to pick Ataraxia, so I will monitor this quest very closely OP, write us a good show.
>>36432994>Tohsaka SakuraTohsaka is one of the hosting families guys>>36428935>The Holy Grail War. An relatively obscure event by Magi standards hosted in the far east, originating from almost two hundred years ago. Hosted by the Tohsaka and Einzbern families, the former a relatively new Magus family seeking to earn their name utilizing the Holy Grail. If I had to guess, her family pressured her to attend and she is too young to put her heart into it or something. or maybe she lost her relic
>>36434899>We all know who she is, even if you haven't played extra you should know just from this threadI haven't played ANYTHING related to the series.>>36434887>Her name was mentionedand? a name tells me nothing
>>36434941Unless OP wrote her much differently to the official stuff, she has more pressing troubles than the war. Should be interesting either way.
>>36434964I should have said it differently, but what I, and I'm assuming what Phantasm meant, was that we all know that her identity is Tamamo.
>>36434979Well yeah, at this point she should we work bait
Anyone else notice it was Tokiomi summoning Berserkermesh?
>>36434964That means you can google her name and learn her myth and have an idea who she isTamamo no Mae is tldr a fragment of the goddess of sun Amaterasu
ok so, apparently there are a fuckton of fate/somethingsomethingif i want to know what the fuck is going on in this quest. what manga can i specifically read to get it?or does it have to be a game/anime?
>>36432994>Tohsaka Sakura[kidnapping intensifies]
>>36434800He has several. Most interesting of which is one where he becomes the pseudo-ruler class
>>36435110If you really want to get into, read the visual novel Fate/Stay Night.You could also just watch the anime Fate/Zero
>>36435110Since it's based on the Fourth War, you can read the Fate/zero novel or watch the anime. You'll get general knowledge, but the core of the franchise is the visual novel Fate/stay night, where they explain everything over just 60 hours of reading.
>>36435136I don't get it.
>>36435141>>36435150where can I find an english translation of the VN?
Does everyone have OP's twitter but me or something?
>>36435220Just google and you will find ithttp://fuwanovel.org/novels/fate-stay-night
>>36435220I think I got it on the bay? it's everywhere, just google a bit.
>>36435110With this quest, it looks like it's 4th war stuffUsually I'd tell you to read the vn, but if you want to get the general idea of the war system you could just watch zero.The VN for fate/stay night is the best way to get into the fate franchise.
>>36435251I am used for fan made translations in english to be hard to find.but yea, it was right there in the bay. thank you.now i just gotta find a spare 60 hours to sink into it
>>36435267Also you can ignore most of this list, I just posted it because it had links to the VN, and the realta nua stuff that adds voices, new CGs, some new content and stuff.
Be sure to archive.
>>36435272The three routes are unlocked in order, and the first one is the most required to understand how the Grail War works and other stuff like boundary fields. The second route expands on it, and the third is for the porn and the writing.
>>36435301>Type Moon>For the pornNah the third route is for some of the best action scenes and for Shirou's mind slowly getting destroyed from magic
>>36435267this is daunting.
>>36435350See>>36435284It's just a list of everything they've done, excluding the new ufotable anime because the list isn't the newest one out there.
so is this thread being archived?
>>36437144Go ahead anon.
>>36437287Archivedhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/36428935/>>36433294Thanks for running.
>>36437454Do you know whn the next thread is or OP's twitter?
>>36437536I have no knowledge of either, unfortunately. guess we'll just have to wing it.
>>36437612Nobody really asked him when the quest was happening
Heres hoping OP read this
>>36435267>reading VNsThe medium is fucking obnoxious. You are basically required to use a controller, because confirming text with the keyboard is a chore.
>>36440277What? You mean moving to the next screen? Put on Autoplay.
>>36440277There's an autoplay and you can set the speed on it, disables with one click if you want to stop somewhere
>>36440313>Autoplay90% of the time I want text to proceed more quickly than intended. The last 10% I want to take my time.Not possible with automation.This is incidentally why I don't listen to audio books. Too time consuming in relation to reading them myself. Even if I can't keep my teenage "Lord of the Rings in two days" pace anymore.
