    22 KB HOLY GRAIL WAR QUEST: SEATTLE EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 04/17/12(Tue)23:32 No.18761397  
    "If you could have anything..."

    My father often asked me what I would wish for. The question was rhetorical, of course. Even with magic, such a thing isn't possible. But I was never able to answer that. It was so enourmous. What would I have a use for? I'm a mage. Young and in his prime, studying magic. My family is a young one - only two generations - but we are strong nonetheless. The element of cold, of darkness. Black. Entropy is our magic. I still remember the day the Crest burned on my forehead, a design like claws grasping at my eyes. Tattoos that blend with my skin when the Crest is not active.

    But that's not the point of this Familiar. It is not a simple repository of memory. It is an advisor. While it has no form, it still exists - a Legion-Type familiar, with goals like mine, powers like mine, but of a seperate mind. Advice. It cannot scout like most familiars or complete tasks, but... In a way, you are greater than other familiars, and at the least, you cannot be destroyed.

    Respond, Familiar. If you can hear my voice, or read my thoughts, or anything of the like. Respond!

    Oh god what have I done.
    Well, I guess a few wouldn't hurt.

    I should explain why I summoned you, before we go, though. It's called the Holy Grail War. Masters from all the world over come to compete for a relic that can grant wishes.

    Oh, it's raining today. At least the bar is downhill.
    To this end, to make the contest more interesting, I think, the Grail summons for these seven participants a Servant. The Servant is a being from a myth or legend of great power, a Heroic Spirit. There are seven classes, Saber, Archer, Lancer, Caster, Rider, Assassin, Berserker. My family owns this land, where the Grail is forming - so I am naturally one of the participants. And yet I can't bring myself to care. A few days ago I was granted the Command Spell, a Crest upon the back of my hand that looks like a whirlpool of red ink.
    The bar is quiet. It's Tuesday, the middle of winter. It's no surprise there's only a few people here.
    The question stands - what should I get? I mean, rather...

    How drunk, exactly, are we talking? I still have a few more days to go until the the actual summoning for the Servant needs to take place, and when that happens, I might as well have jumped into a kill or be killed arena.

    We'll even provide proper background music for any battles, drums, violins all that cool shit.

    Don't get too drunk man, just because the battle hasn't officially started doesn't mean that pieces aren't being moved into place. I'd hate for you to get bumped off before it even started, you know how fucking boring it gets in the void, REALLY FUCKING BORING.

    Let's start with a White Russian.

    I suppose now's as good a time as any to explain how command spells work.

    See, Servants are strong. I mean, crazy powerful. The greatest warriors of the modern age would probably fall to a Servant even of middling caliber. So, in order to keep them from just doing whatever the fuck they want, the masters are given Command Spells. They grant you control over the servant. In times of trouble, you may burn one, and the command given is ALWAYS followed - even if it's outside of the Servant's normal abilities. However, loss of all three invalidates me as a Master.

    Father wouldn't like that. Losing after putting forth the land ourselves? We'd look right fools.

    >research our possible Servants.

    I've actually got a few prepared. An oar from a Greek vessel. It's said to belong to Odysseus. I have a sword, from Spain, very old. And an old animal horn from Ireland, even older. Collected at the behest of the Alexander estate. We use some computer company as a front.

    After cleansing my palette, I move onto a more local drink, continually looking over my options. There's no way to tell what or who these artefacts will summon, in all honesty. Nor any way to tell yet who or what's BEEN summoned.

    > Horn



    I flip open my phone and confirm that the horn is the Artifact I require. They confirm the order. It shall be at my place... before I arrive. Ordering another round, I think on my tactics. Oh, and I have to meet the Church, after I summon. To confirm... and all that.

    My mastery over Entropy and darkness allows me to manifest a single miracle - Dark Luck, the family spell. Our only spell. It reduces 'luck' on an opponent, or a series of opponents. It is especially good at ruining the true bane of mages, that is, modern weaponry. You can manifest a limited version.

    A mere storybook is not enough for a reliable summoning. Specific summons require very precious artifacts - such as the first snakeskin ever shed - that are related to the Servant.

    With this knowledge, is there anything else to do here? Or elsewhere? Or should I just stay and get drunk. Er. Drunker. More drunk?

    rolled 48 = 48

    A swift series of calls ensures I will recieve an email in the morning regarding the topic. The agent asks if I have any further inquiries, and I ask him to keep an eye on any nearby museums or internet trade websites, in case anything shows up at the last moment.

    The other two artifacts will be handled discreetly by trusted employees, to hide them from other masters during the time of the War.

    A few bottles bought, and I wander home. There is a large box secured in one corner, out of the way. Good. They know my habits.

    Who do you think I am, Tohsaka? I do know rudimentary rune placement, however, and decide this is as good a time as ever to excercise it. Soon, the house is warded from intruders with my Luck. Good. I slump heavily onto the large couch, finishing off one bottle and tossing it aside. Something shatters, I don't really care, staring at the ceiling which seems to slowly rotate.

    Another bottle opens easily, and the fluids slide down my throat with burning ease.

    Wake up, make a mental note that this is the only binge drinking we're going to have for a long while, we've got shit to do and preparations to make.

    Keep our contacts gathering information on people and odd artifacts and packages entering as well. Keep a very close eye on if any museums have been raided in the past year. This should cover the big families who get a mansion and the smaller time mages who steal an artifact.

    We'll miss out on poor random summoners but we can't do anything about that and we have the advantage of preparation over them anyways.

    I didn't mean we should summon the Joker, just that we should embrace our implusive and chaotic side and instead roll with it. Russian Roulette-Style. We summon SOMETHING or SOMEONE and will just find out who or what it is after summoning! I mean.. our family is only two generations of mages, I pretty sure the other Combatants few us as little more than guttertrash and how could we better humiliate them, if not by spitting in their faces and saying "Fuck you!" to all those Rituals set up by them!

    While we aren't THAT twisted, it did in the End work out pretty well for him.

    Well shitballs. This is the opposite of good.

    We have their blood can we do any nasty sympathetic magic with that. Make sure it's not ours first and do a quick check around for the horn.

    If we can do sympathetic magic with it curse them with all the bad luck fucking possible and track them down like the dog the thief is.

    What are you talking about? The only route where he didn't triumph was UBW and only because Lancer proved to be tougher than expected. He didn't even summon Lancer in the first place but stole him from another Mage.

    In Fate-Route he nearly opened the Great Goatse of Hell nearly drowning the world in the corrupted matter of the Holy Grail and in Heaven's Feel nearly stopped Shirou from destroying Angra Manyu.

    And I don't even know how would say that he embraced Entropy if he.. well.. just didn't. He planned ahead. Caster and Zouken planned even more ahead and were did it leave them? It sure as hell didn't help Kayneth "Fast Wheels" El Melloi, either.

    I say: Fuck the Traditions. Fuck planning. We are drunk, we are here and now. We will show them that a true Magus, doesn't need to agonize over every little detail. We'll just go all Entropy on their asses.

    Seems the vandal was hit as soon as he got inside. The fact that their shoes were ruined along with a goodly amount of flesh is pretty damn telling of that.
    And yes, it's theirs. And it's not a magus. You'd know magus blood right away, it carries a lot of mana. More than a normal person's anyway.

    >Summon without a Catalyst

    If I do this, I might deprive the theif of a use of the Servant the catalyst pertains to, by virtue of filling the class. It's actually a viable idea. But then, so is attempting a scry with their blood. You know the basics, but the person hiring this theif might be able to obscure them.

    Final answer: Summon without catalyst, or attempt tracking?

    Not really. If you look back, all the past Grail Wars were Clusterfucks. The only one which went a little bit like it should, was the fourth. And even then it was pretty much staged by the Church and the Mages in form of Tohsaaka and the Old Kirei.
    In the Fifth grail war three Masters were killed before even the war began, one of those even by Kotomine Kirei who was supposed to act as Judge.

    His entropy was enjoyment of human suffering, but agian embracing it is oging to be a very bad thing in the Fate verse.

    Because there were people that, indeed, got fucked over by planning.

    But then you have people like Kiritsugu that threw monkey wrench in plans by outwitting and lo and behold, planning.

    I quickly call the main house and ask them to send a replacement, just in case. They say only one is left. I say send it anyway, I don't give a damn.

    Immediately, I begin the small ritual of seeking someone using their Od. It is time consuming, but not utterly. Within a few minutes I can sense him - an intangible link between us, like a string. I grin. He's not a magus, so I open my Circuits, and let the good times roll as I step outside. Well, good times for me.

    This is the most efficient method of attack in my arsenal. It's not the most stable, as the link could be severed by anyone with a degree of competence, but soon enough I cannot push in any more bad luck - and the first manifestation's a biggie. A huge white, blue, and green bus slams into him, crushing him beneath the wheel. The compressed dark luck explodes from his body - Oh fuck, that was a mistake.

    And strikes about half the passengers on the bus. Well, it's not enough to kill them, but...

    Eh. Any magus on that bus could have easily defended themselves from something of that magnitude. But now I have to get to the scene before the cops arrive.

    I beat feet - it's only a few blocks away!

    Yeah, and neither do we want to be a Kirei-Clone, nor a Kiritsugu one.

    Kiritsugu WAS thinking out of the box at that time and was pretty succesfull with it. If the past wars do indeend exist I really doubt that this approach would work again, simply because I don't think our Enemies would not take some exception like Kiritsugu's Guerilla-Tactics into account after they were so successful at that time. Kirei was lucky because it was staged by his Father and one of his Allies whom he fucked systematically over.

    I'm pretty sure, that going all Doomsday on them IS pretty much out of the box, simply because none of the mages did do that before.

    I actually think that we did pretty well. It was flashy. Funny. Gory and will mark us as ruthless motherfucker in case other mages find out about this.

    Though, I'm still for going all out on the summoning and just ignoring the catalyst. Or even better.
    Let the catalyst where it is keep an eye on it, It should work well as a lure to whoever wanted to steal it in the firstplace. We can turn this whole thing in our favour, instead of just using it up for our summon.

    The man was horribly ruined by his encounter. Ignoring the guts, I grasp the case - a padded briefcase. I know it's in there already as soon as I lift it up, the weight is the same.

    I might be able to divine more info if I search the body - But then, I think I should hurry home...

    ... The seal's broken on the case. The catalyst may be compromised in a number of ways, further, they may know what it was.

    I was thinking of something between Kiritsugu and Bluebird. He actually had a good Idea with the whole "Using Children/People" als Meatshields and Kiritsugu had a good Instinct about blowing stuff up. So I propose we catch/charm a few people, starting with people no one will miss, like homeless, orphans and turning them WITH MAGIC! into living bombs. I also think, that using the Kanalisation as our headquarters would be a good idea, to store and move larger quantities of our explosive Allies without being seen.

    Also, Kiritsugu's tactics worked because of the disdain most magi have for technology.
    That's not really something that CHANGED after the fourth Grail War, so a lot of the same tricks could theoretically be used again.

    I actually do think, that Gilles had some pretty neat ideas. While I don't want to go full Gilles on the City and release the Lord of Terror, I think that vanishing hobos wouldn't be something someone would catch up on quick.

    But we are just juggling Ideas now. We'll see how many more possibilities we will have after our summon. Worst case scenario would be, that using the catalyst summons something that isn't really in unison with our ruthless approach on things. This is pretty much the second argument, why I wouldn't want to summon some goddamn hero.

    Summoning something at random has a bigger chance that it will be similiar to us and a Servant that works against or that we have to keep our eyes on everytime would be a big hinderance.

    I think for a moment, then open the case and place another rune carrying dark luck on the catalyst. Too much more of this in such a short time and it might effect my abilities. I tap his wrist, check ankle, mutter something about ID and take the wallet - leaving the suitcase as I leave.

    Too much a chance that they've already learned who is behind that catalyst.

    And then I notice something, walking away from the scene. One of the cars that passes me is absent a passenger - and the one riding it is leaking prana.

    As if fueling a Servant. But before I can get a good look at it, it continues on. A magus in the police? I'll have to run a check on that. Arriving home, I find a long, slender item has replaced the horn's former position. An oar.

    I run my fingers through my hair in thought.

    I could summon randomly. But then, Odysseus was a planner and a scemer - a known teller of lies like myself. I might get him either way.

    If we do a random it might turn out good, we might get someone who isn't high on the power level and get fucked. Also with Odysseus we have his Oar, this might mean he gets to use a noble phantasm based on his 10 year journey easier instead of him having to burn more magic for it.

    On the orter hand: We don't know how much of the Odysseus from the Story the Heroic Spirit will be, After all, it could turn out that the myths about him are entierly wrong.

    "Silver and iron to the origin. Gem and the archduke of contracts to the cornerstone. The ancestor is my great master Schweinorg.
    The alighted wind becomes a wall. The gates in the four directions close, coming from the crown, the three-forked road that leads to the kingdom circulate.
    Shut (fill). Shut (fill). Shut (fill). Shut (fill). Shut (fill).

    Here is my oath. I am the one who becomes all the good of the world of the dead, I am the one who lays out all the evil of the world of the dead.
    You, seven heavens clad in three words of power, arrive from the ring of deterrence, O keeper of the balance! "

    The ring shines, and a man stands before me. His head is like a mane, hair curling like water in a storm. His skin is rough with callous, his eyes, tired. In his hand he holds the largest bow I've ever seen, simple, yet strong looking, unstrung. And in his other hand, the oar.

    He looks down at me, wearing not a toga as I had expected, but the rough leathers and clothes of a man at sea. His eyes stare into my soul, it seems, and he speaks, his words resounding through the room.

    "I ask. Are you my Master?"

    "Yes. I am your master." I say, and he relaxes - but just slightly. His eyes seem ever-fearful, as if the world itself is ready to throw him about. I gesture to the couch. "Can I get you a drink?"

    "That would be excellent." Odysseus states, seating himself. "It seems there has been unrest within your home." he remarks as I pull the best drinks I have from my personal stash.

    "Yes, someone intruded and was punished rightfully." I reply, placing the drinks before him with glasses. He grunts in affirmation and picks up the wine glass, pulling the cork free with his hand and pouring himself and me a glass. As he sets down the bottle he nods, almost to himself.

    "Before you start asking questions." he said. "I am of the Archer class. My bow and my ship are my noble phantasms - the bow will always strike true, regardless of defensive mechanisms - and the boat can move through any waters without trouble. Now that that is clear - have you any other questions?"

    He leans back drinking indulgently, patiently awaiting my response.

    Right of the Bat it's pretty much a No-no. Keep in mind that Servants are not your Friends and only in a Best-Case-Scenario your Allies. We probably have heard more than enough stories - or at least read about - servents screwing their masters over.

    And like I said before in this Thread, our course of Action and our tactic will depend on the Servant we get. Having a Archer reduces us pretty much to fortifiyng our Workshop and waiting until someone comes around or of course going out, Setting up traps, sniping shit, and playing Hunter all night long. So pretty much one of the most static classes.

    Oh. And ask him if he his any questions on his Side.

    To get that information...

    I just look at him, and envision the best way for me to see information.

    STR: B
    END: C
    AGI: B
    MAN: C
    LUK: F (Below human standard)

    Skills -
    Independent Action (EX) : Odysseus can function without mana from a Master

    for as many as ten years before dispersing.

    Tongue of the Cunning (B) : Odysseus's words ring true, regardless of

    context. Anything he says is taken as the truth, unless evidence is brought

    forth against it within a few minutes.

    >Eye of the Mind (True) (B) : Heightened insight that was refined through experience.Capable of calm analysis of battle conditions even when in danger and deduce an appropriate course of action after considering all possibilities to escape from a predicament. So long there is even a 1% chance of a comeback, this ability greatly improves the chances of winning.

    ... It seems some things are not visible at the moment.

    "Did Homer get anything wrong?" I decide to ask.

    "A difficult question." he says, his fingers steepled. "There are some matters that were downplayed, and some that were exaggerated. But on the whole, he was accurate." he said. "Minor things, like the number of axe-heads? Maybe more, maybe less."

    "How far are you willing to go to win?"

    "You have read my tale. What do you think?"

    I raise an eyebrow at that.
    "Any questions of your own?"

    "What of your capabilities?"
    I explain in short what my magic can do as he goes into thought, adding in what my range of allies can do.

    "It seems we have three clear enemies at present." he concludes. "At the least. The rest, occluded."

    Look. Some Servants are cursed. Some have Abilities that they can't really control or turn on/off. I think this is one of this Abilities. And now, of course we shouldn't act like a dickwad to him. Thats why I said: Be distant, and professional. If there is the right time and place to bro it up, it will be.

    Other than that: We know, that someone knows we live here. This means we fucked up and should probably look up for a new place to set up our new workshop instead of staying here and fortyfing it.

    "And the foes you mentioned?"

    "Magus do not like to involve those untrained in magic. So your thief, vandal, assassin, that you punished, who was most likely mundane, since his blood lays upon the floor, was not hired by the Einzbern. They are a traditional magus family, yes?"

    "I see. It is good that we both agree on relocating."

    Excuse yourself, go fetch a Map of the City if you have one. Pack those Belongings and Magic Stuff you will probably need, then set the house on fire. We don't want to leave any possible pursuers ANY clue at all nor do we want to leave personal belongings they could use to track us with. Also it could act as a diversion. One of the other mages could think that you ware attacked, possibly even one of those that now where you Workshop was.
    I think it would be a good call to use the kanalisation to move around until you decide on a new hiding place.

    You probably know this City well since you lived here, so give him the map to look at it ask him what locations he would suggest. Meanwhile make a List of Locations up in your head, check how many of those match or somewhat match with Archers Suggestions.

    "All I need is a hat and a coat. Until then, I can remain in this form." he says, and I feel a presence on the other side of the room. But I don't see anything.

    I nod.

    "A shame." he says, eyeing the alcohol.

    "Save the wine. We're using the rest." I say, picking up the bottles of hit proof and shattering them around the already-messy area. I can't pack clothing, only grab a few necessary things. I move outside, light a rak in the last bottle, and toss it in.

    Time to move. I bring my coat in tight, and move downhill, towards the docks. The flickering fire lights up the darkening night.

    Well, everything is off to great start.

    No sarcasm, things could be going a lot worse, we have a competent servant, it looks like we'll work well together and we've got a game plan. Shame about the rum though.

    That was Odysseus shifting to spirit form, a less mana intensive and harder to notice form that has no physical substance and can't engage in battle. All servants can do it, it's not a hidden enemy, if it was one of the stealthy servants we couldn't sense it at all until the moment it decided to attack.

    When it comes to stealing, I would actually say we look for a boat /yacht that isn't deserted.

    It's better to charm/hypnotize the people then outright stealing them. If we think that one of the other Mages works with the police a stolen Boat after the Fire will be a somewhat obvious hint. So either let Archer use his Tongue to charm the people on the boat, or charm/hypnotize them into thinking you're part of their familiy that they waited for.

    As we approach the docks, I feel something on me. Attention. I turn, and something shines in the distance. "Archer!" I call, and he appears behind me, bow string, pulling it back. His muscles ripple until he finally releases... But no arrow is notched.

    Instead, the arrow simply comes into existence and flies out, the man leaning out the window clutching at the arrow in his chest as he falls out. We both mutely watch him fall.

    "This is what it feels like to be a wanted man."

    A strong hand pats my shoulder, then fades, and we continue moving, onto a boat where a party is taking place. It feels like Odysseus is tugging me there, and we eventually move to the cabin, where the apparent birthday boy is.

    Oddysseus laughs as we convince him to leave the port.

    "There." he says, later, as we sit belowdecks. "They cannot chase us here - to do so would be to attract attention from normal folk. All we must do is wait for the revelry to end. There is an isle I saw not far off - it is where our wonderful captain 'bro' is taking us. It should be an excellent location to set up 'shop'." he smiles. "I will admit, I had not looked forward to being on the water again... But it is comfortable, in its own way."

    It'll be nice to have a large amount of open water between us and whoever wishes us harm. I doubt there are other nautical heroes, though that would put a damper on our plans, this means they have to approach a long distance, on our territory, against a master of ranged combat.

    This means we can sit tight, gather information and let others battle it out pretty readily. It would take a bit of a madman to assault us, which leads me to be slightly afraid of Berserker.

    Island fortress? I like. But what do we know about it? Inhabited? Also what shall be done with Captain Bro and his revelers? We do need to move back and forth from the isle to the main land without him.

    I suggest we sweet talk him out of the boat. Have Brodysseus become visible on the island, and start silver toungin' it.

    That didn't go as smoothly as I hoped.
    At least one person now probably knows where we are or where we are heading.

    Secondly, we, the familiar should now keep watch if we see anything that could be familiar itself so it can be intercepted.

    Third. We apologize to Odysseus for the Inconvience and the rush after his summoning. Apparently we understimated our Foes when it came to buying/importing artefacts and our Foe moved faster than we anticipated, but assure him, that we won't make this Mistake twice.

    Fourth. Ask him if he is sure about the Isle. While it is probably indeed easy to fortify and defend, on the other hand, if their Escape was spotted by too many people, they'll be like sitting ducks on that island. Also the Island seems to be awful Obvious base of Operations. Tell him, that if you were looking for another Master, this would probably be one of the first places to check.

    And Thats the last one for me, though. It's getting late here so I'll go to sleep now. Thanks for interesting quest, EGO. It's very entertaining and thrilling. I hope I#ll finde this thread again later.

    "What shall we do about returning?" I ask. "Surely the captain..."

    "I will have him circle around behind the isle. I assured him it was an excellent locationf for revelry, for the wind is still, but the night is warm. When he awakens and drives back, we hail him, and then hire him as a ferryman - convincing everyone onboard to pay their proper dues as well to him."

    "Isn't that getting others involved?"

    "Just as much as using the world at large as a weapon." he says simply. I look at my watch as it ticks towards midnight, then pull out my phone and call the church.

    "This is - ah. The mage from the Alexander family. You have completed your summoning?"


    "Excellent. It shall be recorded."

    "Is everyone else finished with their summoning?"

    "As of your call, all other six masters have completed their summoning ritual."

    He hangs up. as the clock strikes midnight. Those above us celebrate a young man turning twenty one.

    "I'm sorry for the rush." I manage. He chuckles.

    "Ah, well. There are some things one cannot prevent. We should spend this time to compare notes and rest. It is unlikely we will be attacked for some time."

    I nod, and we begin to talk more extensively about the matters of the time before his summons, while we head towards our future base of operations.

    First of all I recommend you read the rest of F/SN. While there are some similarities to each route the Nasuverse is inherently extremely complex and has lots of information in every route. And they're also pretty nice reads, albeit far from perfect.

    Tsukihime is kinda my preferred Nasuverse storyline (spanning 2(ish) VNs and a fighting game) so I'm gonna do something I usually don't and normally do not like doing.

    Keep in mind though, Tsukihime doesn't have much action in it and the action it does have is not animated in any way. Still its a much better collection of stories than FSN is and tells you a fuckton more about the Nasuverse than FSN does.

    Drop into IRC if there's anything you wanna talk about as well. I might not respond instantly or anything since I'm at work (leaving in 40 minutes for 2 hours as well...). But I'm still here for those 40 minutes, maybe a bit more.

    The rest of the guys who usually frequents it are in bed. They're Americans. There are actually more than a few currently reading FSN just now since the last quest building thread or people inexperienced in the seting.
    >> Anonymous 04/18/12(Wed)06:42 No.18765248
    Word of warning from sameguy here. While Tsukihime does talk a lot about the Nasuverse and reveals a lot more about it than FSN it does not deal with magicians at all. Its all about other supernaturals. Mainly vampires, which are very different from any other kind of vampires in other settings.

    Now that I think about it, isn't Archer probably the class with the biggest potential for hax servants?

    I mean, sure Saber types are the most famous, but Archer types are often heroes who Get Shit Done.
    Both Gil and EMIYA were hax as fuck, then there's Rama, the guy were running with at the moment, Freistuucke, Lynceus, Hercules, David... hell even Robin Hood from FS/E was this unholy combo of the Faery Magic, the Green Man and Orion.

    Sabers are dependable and have high stats. Usually intending to beat a Saber head on involves having a nuke in disposition and hoping that you don't get outnuked.
    Lancers have a dependable, solid NP and are very mobile. Lancer is a great pick if you are competent in battle magecraft yourself, as was Bazett's case.
    Archers have hax NP's but are useless if you get past the NP. They are trickster class. Good in cooperation with other classes.
    Riders are tricksters like Archers, they have solid to hax NP's(And we haven't even seen the gloriously absurd NPs like Perseus would have), they actually have to risk melee, but are less likely to get fucked in it.
    Berserkers are absurdly strong with absurd stats and it's unlikely that an other servant will be able to take one out by himself, but are easy to make setups and traps on. Also, summoning one is very bad for your health. Berserker's master is going to get gank'd a lot, but if you have a Berserker in the final battle, you are set up for victory, if you can survive long enough to get there.
    Casters are meta class, like blue in mtg. Too bad their players always suck. Might have to do with how they make you a bit useless as a magus.
    Asassins are the best class if you don't want to actually fight servants. There is seventeen different Hassans, one of the three known is very hax(the 3rd war one). But if you eliminated other masters and got all servants to kill each other and there is the one victorious servant left against your Assassin, if you go with Assassin to a final battle, you are propably fucked.

    More it has to do with the 3 Knight classes having magic resistance built into the classes themselves, and having a plethora of high powered heroes to choose from.
