((MY APOLOGIES FOR THE LONG WAIT, BUT WE'RE BACK IN FUCKIN' ACTION. A HALF HOUR EARLY, EVEN!YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK THE ARCHIVES: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Holy%20Grail%20War%20Quest ))WHERE WE LAST LEFT OFF: FORGING AN ALLIANCE WITH THE LADY LANCER AND HER YOUNG MASTER, YOU LEARN MORE OF THE CASTER AND BERSERKER, (MAYBE).Morning breaks through the window. It's about 6 AM. I slide out the bed, holding the blanket to my body as I stumble to my clothes, dressing myself. "Good morning." Lancer says, stretching in the bed, uncaring of her state of dress. Or, rather, lack thereof. "What do we do today, El?" ...El?
((Oh, and the IRC is #HGWseattle. Have fun. ))
>>19113800Bobs face right now. He had one hell of a night.Hmm. We need to figure out who the hell Caster is, and see if Jack is still on the loose. If he is, we are still in some danger.
Try not to gawk, lovergirl.What was on the agenda? First thing first, we check on Odie.
>>19113863Oh yeah. We should see if Odie is all rested up. Also, who's making breakfast?
>>19113800Morning Lancer.The current plan is to move you and David, this place is about as unsafe as can be, and given that I can make one workshop and David can't make any you should probably move in with Archer and I. But first, breakfast.Check in on Big O, see how his night was, mentally inform him of Lancer's identity.
d'aawww, she's already given Liz a pet name. I sense we've made progress on the trust front. That, or we boinked her last night. Possibly both.Also, can we have a status page? On Odysseus, and Atalanta if possible?
>>19113800Please tell me you didn't make hot Grecian love.
>>19113908We made hot lesbian liongirl love.
>>19113908They totally did. Lesbian hot Grecian love. The best kind.Bob was a very happy familiar last night.
>>19113863I think Lancer might appreciate a little flirtatiousness, but right now our big focus would be on keeping the relationship professional.Ask the Big O how he slept, if there's any info on David we might appreciate knowing. Also, looking up ways to fortify this place. we might not stay here too long, but it'd never hurt to be secure. Jack may still be at large - we'd need to be certain.Does the Holy Church keep 'score' of who's dead and alive in this? Would they know if Jack's master were still with us or not?
Also, dumping Odysseus' status:OdysseusArcher-classSTR: BEND: CAGI: BMAN: CLUK: F (Below human standard)Skills -Independent Action (EX) : Odysseus can function without mana from a Masterfor as many as ten years before dispersing.Tongue of the Cunning (B) : Odysseus's words ring true, regardless ofcontext. Anything he says is taken as the truth, unless evidence is broughtforth 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.Bow of the OxAnti-Infantry Noble PhantasmRank BA bow that only Odysseus can draw. The arrows go where he wills, and never lose kinetic energy. While only five arrows may be controlled at a time, he may loose more without controlling them. Bag of the North WindsUtility Noble PhantasmRank AA bag full of storms and winds. When opened, unleashes a torrent of wind so great that it can dispel many weather, fire, and similar magics, as well as blow foes or allies away. Can be used many times, but is not very prana efficient.King of Lies, TriumphantAnti-infantry Noble PhantasmRank A (B)A fighting style that cannot be emulated, reliant on deception and lies. The basics of it involve extreme close quarters, dirty fighting, and, somehow, remaining in the shifting blind spot of a foe at all times. Loses one rank for every person that knows of it, though this penalty is only applied after the use that reveals it.
>>19113938I doubt very much he survived. Unless... Could a magus fake death? Could Jack have faked his masters death?
>>19113961No, can't be. We hit him right in the mana, there's no way he still lives.
>>19113967Jack is very likely still be out there. If his master faked his own death, we are in some serious shit though. Serious. Shit.
>>19113961Possibly.I was afraid of Jack sustaining himself via murders. Servant can exist so long as there's prana, and human bodies are delicious sacs of prana waiting to someone with lots of hunger and few morals.Caster scare the pants off of me right now, but I kind of want Rider dead now. King of Lies, Triumphant is nerfed because of rider's knowledge and - if he tells his Master, it suffers more. It's a great fighting style, and I'd rather not be gimped by it's loss more than necessary.
>>19113938>>19113967>>19113961Our Agent watched him die. He's dead, Jim.
>>19114007Ditto. Jack becoming an immortal serial killer would be very bad. Very, very bad.Currently on the Hitlist:Assassin (Jack the Ripper)Master of Assassin (If still alive somehow...)Rider (Identity unknown)Master of Rider.
>>19113987Even if the master is dead, Jack can probably rig something up to give himself a continual supply of prana. Remember, this ritual that's taking place has never been pulled off without any sort of major complication. We can't trust everything to obey the rules.
>>19113888>>Also, can we have a status page? On Odysseus, and Atalanta if possible?AssassinSpirit: AtalantaAlignment: Chaotic GoodStrength: CEndurance: CAgility: AMana: CLuck: DCrossing Arcadia: N/ACan move while jumping over all kinds of obstacles on the field, including enemies. Is not inhibited by difficult terrain.Aesthetics of the Last Spurt:Can anticipate the enemy by letting him take the initiative and then confirming his actions. Increases basic stats as combat continues.The Golden Apple:Draws the enemy near by displaying a treasured item. While similar to a Noble Phantasm, it has no specific legend - thus, this Skill can be assumed to be similar to a bluffing skill, and the ability to percieve the same.Noble Phantasms:Spear of the Boar Anti-personellRank BThe spear that wounded the Boar of Calydonia. Can strike anything, despite Agility status or evasion skills, and wounds will always bleed. Blistering Speed of the HuntressUtilityRank CAtalanta's skill in footraces is legendary. When traveling in a straight line, she moves at a speed that is such that renders her invisible and 'unstrikable'.>What a night, eh?Heh. For me and Lancer. I made sure to knock you fools out for the interim. And I'm never gonna tell. >Comfirm: Jack's death.I pick up the newspaper after I finish getting dressed with Lancer, looking through it. It seems that the mass murders have changed, both in MO and tempo. Three new kills, but..."Skinned alive?" Odie says, confused. "This is nothing like Jack."
>>19114007Rider isn't exactly on the best of terms with his Master, I'd imagine. He jerked him out of a fight out of sheer cowardice, and burned a CS to do it. That's gotta hurt Rider's knightly pride. I doubt he'll say anything.
>>19114012If we didn't see it through Liz's eyes, we can't be sure. We should operate on the assumption that he has another trick up his sleeve.
Did you summon Sigurd the Dragonslayer as Saber, with immunity to any attack A rank or below anywhere but his shoulder, able to communicate with and give commands to winged critters coupled with limited precognition? And if you didn't, then why?
>>19114035Nothing like the murders that have been happening in the city, or nothing like Jack historically. Remember, there are quite a few different ones.
>>19114035((Silly Elisa, that's supposed to say Lancer.))
>>19114035Assassin Atlantia? You mean Lancer right? Right?Oh shit. Jack is still out there. This is just a different aspect of him. Oh fuck. Oh fuck we need to take this bastard out as soon as possible. Permanently. With unbelievably extreme prejudice.
>>19114035My bet's on Berserker!Lovecraft. That sounds like the kind of messed-up MO he'd have.>>19114053Didn't have a catalyst for him.
>>19114065Jack is basically the CONCEPT of a serial killer. He can change his very identity. We could be in for one hell of a paranoid war.
>>19114080Her base luck is C-Rank. It's already nerfed.
>>19114035Strange, it could be Caster but it really doesn't feel like him. It could be a different Jack, there's been a lot of serial killers with different methods. Also Berserker is possible.Make breakfast, confer with Big O, we need to inform him of Lancer being Atalanta and to mull over moving David and Lancer in with us, they aren't safe here and I'd like to keep our only allies from getting killed in their sleep by someone else due to them not having magic defenses.
>>19114075>Didn't have a catalyst for him.Then who did? Feels like someone would have gone through the trouble to get one.
>>19114088Not so much. It's more of "he had tons of copycats and thus there are lots of him." If the MO's not similar, it's not Jack.
>>19114053Out of character here, but the reason is because Finn McCool is Saber. Or maybe Don Quixote.
>>19114075We don't know that, but if it was Lovecraft then I'd imagine they're be a lot more broken minds, not bodies.I'd say check the psych wards but, well, metagaming.
>>19114100>Already moving in with her.Careful master. Don't scare her off now.
>>19114103Skinning requires knives.Skinning is gruesome, and one hell of a disturbing way to kill someone.Jack was famous for killing people with knives in very gruesome ways. It isn't exactly a leap of faith to see his hand in this.So this is either some new player in Seattles Serial Killer scene, or it's one we already know about: Jack. I'm going with Jack.
>>19114111Goddammit, stop metagaming. For all we know the Servants are unique to this game.Ask Lancer what she thinks. Also, do we know of what happened to Davids family? Did he meet an end because of this, too?
>>19114108>Don Quixote YOU ARE WINDMILL! I CHARGE YOU!SANCHA MY LAAAAAAAANCE!
>>19114108Shouldn't McCool be rider?
>>19114128Or Jacks presence is drawing serial killers to Seattle, like pilgrims draw inexplicably to a holy place.
>>19114128>>19114156Or it's another Servant.
>>19114138Again, out of character, but here's the reason why.McCool fits Saber and Lancer. He isn't famous for riding shit. Rider right now is either El Cid, or motherfucking Saint George with a sword of fire. Either way, Rider is going to be one tough son of a bitch to take down. Quixote, fits Rider, Berserker, Lancer and Saber. We know he can't be Lancer, but for all we know he's Saber or Berserker, or even RIDER. So he's one hell of a threat right now. We need more information on our opponents. ESPECIALLY Caster.
>>19114156I know its stated in Tsukihime that "weird things attract weird things" but I think this is a bit farfetch'd
>>19114126While it is moving fast, it's also the single most practical choice for keeping her Master safe. The other benefits are just icing on the cake.
>>19114177>>19114156All three options are bad news. The best we can hope for is that Jack fled the city if he is in fact, still alive and is murdering some poor bastards far away from us and this is some mundane killer. Worst case, Assassin and Caster have teamed up and are out for blood. Everyone's blood.
"...Even so, Jack could still be living off of these. We need to make certain that he's gone. Eliminating his aspects will reduce his capability and make it harder for him to operate, if he still is around." [Archer. I've learned the identity of Lancer. She is Atalanta.][...I thought so. It makes sense.][What shall we do with that information?][For now, we bide. We have more dangerous enemies than a lesbian wild-woman and her child.][Le- what?][The walls are very thin.][I... eurgh.]"...Anyway. I propose we return to our boat, Lancer. For the moment, it's safer than here. We need to gather information, as well. I'm going to confirm the death of Assassin's master with the Church. Any ideas, Lancer? Archer? David?" All three go into thought. "I'll check out the murder scenes from the new MO." Archer states. "I think that it would be best that Lancer and David secure the way to the boat. We can meet up at noon and compare notes."
>>19114198And what she cares about most is keeping David safe. And she knows damn well we can help with that. Liz, I advise asking Lancer if she'd like to make the cohabitation thing continue.
>>19114229HAHAHAHAHA, I KNEW IT! Turn me off, will you? Next time, I want a ridealong!
>>19114229Good thinking Odie. Also, maybe he could Head to the police station later and Convince the detectives to give him some info. You know, if we confirm that Assassins master is dead.
>>19114229We need to acquire soundproofing. And let us watch next time, we're helping you out free of charge after all...Anyway, yeah. Time for investigation.We still don't know who Saber's master is. Or Berserkers. Or Casters. That should be our priority today, finding out who is who's master.
>>19114183I personally always assumed McCool was best suited for rider or lancer. And your mount doesn't need to be famous for you to qualify for rider. He was a king and he did lead of which he often did mounted on horseback.
>>19114229First we get some quick breakfast, then we tell Archer to have fun and return back with information.Then we'll head to our boat with Lancer and David. Taking great care to avoid major roads given that Rider is still at large and I'd like to double team him rather than give him the drop of us in his territory.
>>19114230I second this. Big O can handle himself.We take our new allies to the Floating Base of Doom. Atlanta 7 David trust us. Have Atlanta go spiritual and disguise David so we draw less attention. We get them set up there, and then we investigate these killings more.(Shouldn't Odysseus not use the term lesbain, since - to him - that just means "from the Isle of Lesbos"? Fuck it, The Grail Did IT!)
>>19114111>>19114128>>19114156>>19114210Holy shit, guys. What if this new killer is Berserker as a Naagloshii?That fits the MO perfectly.
>>19114268True. But he didn't become famous FIGHTING on horse back, like Gengis or Broskander the Great. Plus, flaming sword. Don't think he has one.
>>19114251>>19114264Guy, guys. Give a woman her privacy. Also, speaking of, once we have some time alone with Odie we should ask him if David said anything. Also, was Atlanta before or after his time?
>>19114274Wait wait wait. Lovecraft is a skinwalker in his Berserker form.Well, shit. Might as well put a bullet in our head because there is no way in hell we are killing that thing without some serious firepower. And I don't think it has any blind spots.
>>19114273Well, considering what the island of Lesbos is famous for...
>>19114273Grail gives information about the current age
>>19114297We could get Listens-To-Wind to kick its ass.
>>19114229Is there anything to do on that boat? Because I don't want the kid getting bored and going all cabin fever on that boat.We should pick up some movies. Maybe Clash of the Titans.
>>19114300Lesbos was famous for having 'orally creative' lovers of both sexes. (Sappho, who came from there, was the woman whose female-centric love poems got the association made)How secure will transporting David & lancer be?
>>19114289>Time alone with Odie.Liz doesn't swing that way. And as long as she lets us watch ONCE, just ONCE, we're more than fine with that. More than fine.OH, you meant strategy. Yeah. We need the King of Lies to tell us what David knows. Or we could you know, just all share notes at a table.
>>19114332In a straight line, Lancer is so fast she's invisible. They're probably ok.
>>19114326We have to show Big O O Brother Where Art Thou. He has to watch it at least once.
>>19114318That would be one hell of an awesome cross over.
>>19114339We kinda do find Big O attractive IIRC, but he said he's married and not planning on doing mana transfers that way with us.We were polite enough not to bring up Circe and Calypso.And I second showing him O Brother Where Art Thou, he might enjoy it.
>>19114326Nah. Get him something like Inception. Odie needs a bit of a mental challenge. And grab him Taken while were at it. (I read all of Odie's dialogue in Liam Neeson's voice. Shit is so cash.)
rolled 65 = 65>>19114273>(Shouldn't Odysseus not use the term lesbain, since - to him - that just means "from the Isle of Lesbos"? Fuck it, The Grail Did IT!)((Wait for the Tiger Dojo, bro.))"I agree with Archer. Though, I think Lancer should come with me to the Church. David's fine with boats, right?" "I love boats!" he calls, his first contribution so far. "Right. We need to keep an eye out for Rider, but with Lancer, it shouldn't be that great of an issue."[Any info from David?][Nay. Have you heard the expression 'too dumb to fool'?][...Ah.] You finish breakfast in short order, and Lancer stretches - and is suddenly a brunette, without the ears, and wearing a sharp pantsuit. "Let's get going." she says, taking my hand. David takes the other, with a big smile. Archer nods, then vanishes.The air's a little chilly today, and the weather is wet, drizzling quietly.((Chance: 80 ))
Eliza: Berserker is a Naagloshii, a Skinwalker. It's a Native American demon that puts on human form to disguise itself.You can't possibly hope to hurt it with anything less than a full-power Noble Phantasm. This thing is a demon that got an UPGRADE when it got summoned.
>>19114362>Implying Inception is a challenging watch>2012>ISHIGGY-DIGGY-DOO!>>19114339I'd be fine with this. Just so long as we don't play TOO much of our hand. My fear is that - should David be held captive - Lancer would ahppily spill the beans on us to protect him. I don't wanna see this happen, but we should be cautious regardless.>route oulmajeThat's right, capcha. We unlocked the ol' majie route with Lancer last night. it was quite a ride!
>>19114371Definite possibility but still unconfirmed. We should however check in with the local native american population, see if there is a Magus among them who we could tie to the HGW.
>>19114368Do we have an umbrella?
>>19114368>Was that bad or goodAnyway, Lizzie, we have three theories about Berserker. Lovecraft, nutjob, famously wrote The Call of Cthulhu. We may be in trouble with that.Theory two: Skinwalker. If it is, commit suicide, or just move out of the fucking country because there is no way in hell you can kill that fucker. It's already an evil as fuck demon, but now it's got a power boost. And is batshit insaneTheory Three: We, Bob the Skull, have no idea about Berserker. He could be anyone.
>>19114392Nobody who actually lives in Seattle uses an umbrella. The most we wear is a hat or a coat hood, usually we just ignore it.
>>19114410Wouldn't it have to be a specific skinwalker though? I though having a legend was one of the requirements?
Oh, fuck. I said its True Name.ELIZA, PREPARE FOR BATTLE! THE SKINWALKER IS COMING HERE NOW!Burn something, coat your gun's bullets in white ash. DO IT NOW!
>>19114423For all we know, there is only, and always has been only one. And it died a few centuries ago or some shit. If so we're in serious trouble. And the city might as well be a rubble filled mess.
rolled 62 = 62>>19114371>>19114431If this is true, make sure you do NOT speak the name aloud. The word Skinwalker or Naagloshii is like a True fae - invoke it's name and it KNOWS, man.I'mma hoping this demon is off, because otherwise we're fucked. But I took Occul Studies (or the host familiar-body did at some point) and I know this is Bad News
>>19114451We're a familiar summoned to aid a Master in the HGW, we have a full degree in Applied Mythology, this is one of the few instances were Applied Mythology is a legitimate degree.We are however taking a flying leap to a conclusion, Skinwalker is a damn good possibility but we need more evidence than a few flayed bodies to state it as absolutely true. We should however look into this very seriously.
>>19114451If it's a skinwalker, the only thing Liz can do to it is shoot it with bullets coated in white ash. This fucker laughs off A-Rank spells like nothing.

I can feel eyes on me, I can feel something coming for me!>>19114431BURN WHAT BURN WHAT"Eliza, are you-" "WE NEED TO MOVE, FAST! WE HAVE TO GET TO THE CHURCH!" I can feel the panic settling in me, deeply rooting in my mind. I struggle to maintain my clarity of mind, but I can feel it, like tiny claws peeling away my sense of security and self. "Take my hand." Lancer says, holding it out to me. David is already on her back, an ignorant grin on his face. A tall, thin man in robes of green and black approaches from the distance. He looks manic. ... Can I trust Lancer? I... I don't know. Doubt fills me. "ELIZA! TAKE MY HAND!"
>>19114468Again, it could still be Jack. Considering the alternative, I'm actually hoping it's the deadly as fuck killer now.
>>19114451She didn't invoke it though, we did. Do we count?Anyway, we have no real reason to freak out at this point. All it is is a possibility. One of many.
>>19114474OH FUCKING HELL. TAKE HER HAND WE NEED TO GET THE FUCK OUT! FAMILIARS AND CHILDREN FIRST!
>>19114474>BURN WHATanything that creates white ash. Enough to coat bullets/weapons. Including Odysseus' arrows/swords.
>>19114474Take her fucking hand. We are her best chance of keeping David alive, she's not going to betray us right now. We get the fuck out of this joint.
>>19114474Take her fucking hand. You trusted her enough to be alone and naked in a room with her, you can at least trust her now.
rolled 64 = 64TAKE HER GODDAMN HAND! THIS IS NOT AN OPTION!
>>19114474Wait, it is a skinwalker?FUCK! FUCK!
>>19114496Also, fight the fear. That's one of its abilities - it literally feeds on fear. The more scared you are, the stronger it gets. We need another emotion to cancel it out. QUICK, LANCER MAKE-OUT!
rolled 48 = 48>>19114541Make out or enocurage david to tell us of what he wants to see on the boat. hes innocent and cheerful, use that to infleunce the rest of the party.

>>19114564I will never have any sex, let alone terror sex.sadfrog.jpg
>>19114582Dude. We're a skull. Well more the concept of a skull that a hot possibly bisexual woman keeps in her head. We aren't getting any any time soon.
>>19114592That's why I keep asking for ridealongs.Kincaid, gembeovYES! CALL KINCAID, CAPTCHA! QUICK!
>>19114599I am literally on the edge of my seat here. Bracing for awesome. And hoping that Rider pops up on his motorcycle doing a wheelie, flipping everyone the bird, then kills Berserker. Or whatever that THING is.
>>19114474>That songWelp I'm all kinds of excited and terrified. Take her hand if we want to live.
>>19114474Also, while he's here, let's get a look at Big Ugly's stats. For future reference. If we HAVE a future.
The air rends behind me as I take her hand and we...Well, we move. No, we MOVE. It doesn't feel like we do, more like teleportation, but there is a moment of blistering pain and speed, and for a moment, I fear for my dignity, my clothing tight against my body. We stop, and she looks over her shoulder as she turns. "Running will not save you." the creature says, claws unfolding, long daggers. We MOVE again, but he's waiting. "The World has brought me for a reason. I will End you." we MOVE as the arm comes down - his claws sever Prana! HE DESTROYS PRANA?! OUTRIGHT?!"MY LADY!" come a roar, along with the sound of a motorcycle engine - and a whole motorcycle slams into the beast's side, sending him- Nowhere. He gestures casually, and the bike shatters around him as he turns to face Rider. "Fool..." it mutters as he draws his weapons. "No fool. Only a man." he says, as the bikers approach behind him. "RUN, milady! I shall face you, but at another time!" We could run... Or we could help. Lancer seems to be on the edge of it, and Berserker...Looks amused.>>19114663I Look at him...And see nothing. I cannot determine his status now.
>>19114663>Facing that what must not be fucking named.>ACTUALLY WANTING TO LOOK AT ITNo. We are never ever looking straight at that thing. We need to find it's master and KILL HIM WITH A FUCKING DULL CHEESE-GRATER FOR UNLEASHING THIS MONSTROSITY ON THE WORLD.
>>19114667We are going to have to find his Master and kill him to death. Berserker very rarely has independent action, his master ought to be nearby. Get to a higher place and look for good area for a master to be, places we would hole up in if we didn't have independent action and had a fight.
>>19114667Tell Rider what that thing is, tell him to get away if he can, then book it.None of us should fall to that monster.
>>19114667HELP HIM! 3 on 1 beats 2 on 1, and this fucker's a godsdamned MONSTER!This is our best chance! AND WHAT DID I TELL YOU ABOUT THOSE GODSDAMNED BULLETS?
>>19114667Rider confirmed for Don Quixote or Saint George. WE HAVE A CHANCE NOW THANK THE LORD!Have Odie help rider by shooting that fucking dude from the rooftopsBurn a command spell if you have to, we CANNOT let that... that... THING survive. Or we are all dead.
>>19114692This! I'd rather end this bastard now, thank you very much.
>>19114710He's not. We've dealt with George, and Quixote uses lances, not twin swords.
>>19114706Hey! Rider has a flaming sword!Get some ash from him.
>>19114724El Cid then. Or, god forbid, Saint Michel?
>>19114692We should make it as quick and excruciating as possible. Bringing one of THOSE things into the world deserves a fate much, much more horrible than can ever be inflicted by any mortal being.
>>19114738Michael's an Archangel. No. Cid, on the other hand...well, have a look at his legend. You tell me.
>>19114727Good idea, anon. Liz, THIS!
>>19114761Ok, he has two swords. Still, it may just take an Archangel to kill THAT motherfucker.
>>19114761Two Swords check, one of which is on fire check, leader of men check, has a bitching horse check, it fits.
rolled 62 = 62>>19114692This. Probably that Homunculus bastard is nearby - gank him and Berserker goes "Poof!" (we call the baddy Berserker, y'alls hear!)>>19114706This. Kill this thing now. Warn Rider of the Prana-slashing claws, and that it feeds on fear. Do NOT name it. Have Big O snipe from afar, and Lancer can use her Spear NP on it. Meanwhile we hunt for Berserker.Oh, and KEEP DAVID SAFE!. If he dies, Lancer will follow, and we need her for support as well as lovin'. Also, is Berserker captures him, Lancer would sell us out in a heartbeat
>>19114799Then I think the safest place for him to be in this fight is with Odie, no?
>>19114667Alright, Liz, this isn't the best time, but now, we know who Rider is. Thank us by letting us stay next time you're with Lancer. Rider is El Cid.Yeah.THAT El Cid.We have a slim chance now. As far as I can tell, it's gonna take a motherfucking miracle to kill THAT MOTHER FUCKING ABOMINATION. If you weren't praying already, you'd better start.
>>19114799Also, LANCER MAKEOUT. We need to get rid of Eliza's fear, and hers too.Also, Odysseus use Bow of the Ox, with an ash-tipped arrow. It's impossible to miss.
>>19114818No, Ash tip spearhead for lancer. It literally impossible for her to miss.
>>19114818>>19114836BOTH! And bullets, too!
>>19114836Hers always hits, also trying to shoot it with the ash bullet jams and freezes, given Big O's F rank luck I'd rather not risk there being a mishap, somehow. Or we can try to do both.
"Rider! Its claws feast on Prana!" I call out. We should help. I release Lancer's hand, and turn to face it. It laughs menacingly, stepping forth. And with an explosion, Lancer is gone. "Hahahahah! Your allies-""ARE RIGHT HERE!" Lancer screams, slamming into Berserker. His claws cross in front of his body, sparks of blue rising from the contact as he is pushed back by sheer impact. Both skid back, creating furrows in the concrete."Weaaaak." he hisses, his arms pushing her away. The prana around her falls to peices, protection falling away as he steps forth. "Weeeeeak, insipid creatures..." he says, wiping the blood from a shallow cut on his chest - as automatic fire tears from behind Rider. The sheer amount of munitions pushes him away as the protections rebuild around Lancer. David is nowhere to be seen. "White ash. I need white ash!" I turn to Rider, and he shrugs. "What would produce that?" he asks, as the gunfire continues. [Is my prescence needed?][... Find David. Get him to safety and return.]
>>19114799Keep David Safe. Priority Number One.Priority Number Two: KILL BERSERKER.Priority Number Three: KILL BERSERKERS MASTER IN THE MOST HORRIBLE WAY WE CAN AFTER TORTURING HIM TO NEAR DEATH THEN RESTORING HIM TO HEALTH. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...
rolled 73 = 73>>19114863[David}That's lancer's adoptive child! We need to get him to safety, spam some Bad Luck at Berserker long enough to fuck his shit up and allow Lancer to deal the killing blow
>>19114863>ARE RIGHT HERE!>White AshClothes work. hehehe...AND YES YOU ARE FUCKING NEEDED! YOU HAVE A GUN! MODIFY THE BULLETS AND USE IT!
>>19114863Charcoal, standard firewood. Is there any around?
>>19114863Do we have any hardwood? If so, FLASH FIRE IT RIDER, THEN WE CAN KILL THAT BASTARD. AND NEXT, COMES THE MASTER.
rolled 32 = 32>>19114900It needs to be White Ash. we need to burn cloth or something.Master, have you any cloth we can sacrifice to this cause.
>>19114863Wouldn't Jack have been able to kill this thing, given the stat's you gave him in the third planning thread?
>>19114924Oh, better idea than hard wood. Master, TAKE YOUR TOP OFF! NOW! Man, us here as Bob the Skull are having one hell of a day.
>>19114924There are a ton of bikers here. We use their cloths.
>>19114940>Use their clothes.>NOT make Liz lose her shirt.Go back to choir practice, anon.
>>19114940What kind of Bob are you?
>>19114890These things can shrug off NUKES. There is no way in hell a little hex spell is going to do SHIT to it.
>>19114863Wait! FIND DAVID! Berserker's Master could nab him, and suddenly Atalanta switches sides!
>>19115017If David gets nabbed, we shoot him in the head that second. It will be gentler that way. And we won't have to face Lancer.
>>19115000Didn't Morgan nuke one?
>>19115038Yes. He wasn't sure if he killed it or not though. And seeing what Shagnasty could do, I don't think it did much more than give it a very nasty headache.
>>19115063>ShagnastyTHAT's what Dresden called him! That was bugging me. Thanks.
>>19115036No way. We've already tasted sweet lion love, like hell are we giving that up without a fight.
>>19115122So go find David?
"Run. It's more entertaining that way." the Berserker says, walking forth.That's when I notice something. The wound on his chest didn't heal. In fact... It's not bleeding. It's almost like the skin... Isn't real. He looks down at it and frowns. "I will return." he says, pockmarked skin stretching. "I will end you. This does not end here." he finishes, dissolving into spiders. Rider frowns, sliding his weapons away. "Odd. I thought him stronger. I could certainly sense so..." "Why run, then?" Lancer puts away her weapon, and we all look at one another. [David is safe on the boat.] Archer says. This is strange... He was so strong. So powerful. Why did he run away like that?!
>>19115141Gentlemen, we might just have found Jack again. Or the spirit can only be contained within someones skin. Either way, we're in deep shit if we get caught off guard. Make out with Lancer to celebrate.
>>19115141TRAP TRAP TRAPDon't drop your guard.And seriously. You need a godsdamned weapon. I know I'm repeating myself, but how 'bout them bullets?Pic related
>>19115141Well if it was a skinwalker, don't skinwalker legends talk about them dying if you see their face and know their identity. Perhaps it was afraid of being seen without its false skin on in case we ascertained its true identity.
>>19115169It was summoned by using Shagnasty's name. It attacked with claws that suck mana, and had an aura of pure fear. It's not Jack
>>19115194YOU JUST SAID IT'S NAME TWICE YOU STUPID FUCKING BASTARD. IF YOU WEREN'T ALSO ME I'D KILL YOU! GREAT, NOW WE'RE REALLY FUCKED.
>>19115141Maybe the skin is normally invincible, but Lancers noble phantasm that always leaves a bleeding wound scared it somehow.Or, maybe it isn't a skin-youknow. Maybe the whole thing was some illutionary mind fuckery.Oh look over there, it's that guy we tried to stab in the back. Time to leave.
>>19115141>>19115194I don't know, don't let your guard down, Berserker often acts without rhyme or reason, but that doesn't mean he's an idiot who can't set traps.And yes, in some if you find its identity and tell the person that you know they're the skin walker they die. This is a war of information now. Get our agents looking into any Native American Maguses and if we have contacts get some books on native american magic.I think that we might be safe for now, and I don't think Rider is going to start shit for now. Get to the church, confirm Assassin's master's death, go grocery shopping.
>>19115207For all we know, Jack was a Shagnasty. OK, he wasn't but there is still a chance.We need to keep on our guard from now on. The enemy could be anyone. ANYONE. Trust no-one but Archer, Lancer, and David.
>>19115194GODDAMMIT, ANON. Call it Shagnasty, or Berserker. Every time we use THAT word, or the one I accidentally said earlier, it gets STRONGER.
>>19115246DON'T USE THE WORD. DON'T EVER USE THE WORD.
>>19115141Also, Liz. Apologize to Rider for earlier backstab attempt. Furthermore, if we assume what>>19114817said is right, can we get a reading off him? Stats, NP, and whatnot?
>>19115289>apologise to Rider for backstabbing him after him and his master backstabbed us during a truce.I don't mind faking an apology, but I hope we aren't being serious here.
>>19115337It was a mutual backstab between mages. It was to be expected.
>>19115337Truce ended the previous night at midnight. And even if it hadn't, it would've ended with the death of Assassin's Master.And I'm not talking about that one. He (Rider, not the Master) then offered us a truce, in good faith, which WE then broke.
>>19115289Can we only get a read if we figure out the identity? If so, that might be an indication that Berserker is not a ski- well, isn't what we think it is.
>>19115361In other words, we're in serious shit with Rider right now. We need to either ally with him, or kill him soon. No other options exist at this stage. He knows about the KIng of Lies Triumphant.
>>19115389Actually, let's ask him what the fuck he's DOING here in the first place.And try to get a look at his stats, and confirm if he's EL Cid. If he is, we can figure out his weakness.
>>19115382Wait. Could that mean, that the Servant is in fact the master? That the abilities are what makes him Berserker? If so, we need his name NOW. RIGHT. FUCKING. NOW.
>>19115409We HAVE his name. That's what got us into this Charlie Foxtrot, and that's WHY I know exactly how to kill him.
>>19115409You mean, the master IS a shagnasty? That would be very bad. Very bad indeed.
rolled 69 = 69>>19115246Yeah. War of information, I agree. Though it need not be a Native American who summons the Shagnasty dude. ANYONE with the personality profle fits.Also what >>19115289 said. Apologize to Rider, and get a reading off of him.>>19115246 has a point. We should be cautious. The only way we can know for sure is to protect ourselves. be cautious
"So we meet again." Rider says, looking down at me. "You are in better health than expected, having met with... that one." he says. "I-""Do not bother with apologies. This is the field of battle. I should have sought to clarify our truce." he holds up a hand. "My master taught be well enough of mages." he adds bitterly. "For now, I will leave - this is not tactically advantageous." he says, turning to leave. "Be wary of Saber, however. He is something to fear." And then he rides away. "We must hurry." Lancer says, and we make our way fully to the Church. >>19115194FEARFUL LEGEND INVOKEDWe arrive at the church, finally. Beleagured and exhausted, I sit in one of the pews while Lancer paces and the Church rep steps out. "Yes?"
>>19115429>>19115423No, that's not his name. That's just what he is. I mean his name when he's not Shagnasty.
>>19115246>>19115434Wait. Wait. One fucking second.ELIZA! LISTEN, GIRL! Look around. Are there any animals behaving strangely? Especially look for an eagle.
>>19115194You dumb fuck, you've doomed us all.
>>19115437We need to know two things. One, whether or not Assassin's Master is dead. And if so, if Jack's dead as well.Two, we need to know if he's possibly a master. Remember Kotomine?
>>19115437Hey there Mr. Church man. Just came to check on a few things. Is Assassin's master well and truly dead and is Assassin gone or still wandering about?
>>19115437HOLY FUCK, WE'RE NOT DEAD! WOO!Ask if Assassin's Master is dead. Also, inform the CHURCH REPRESENTATIVE that Berserker's Master summoned a FUCKING DEMON as a Servant.Then go to the boat where David is and get the fuck out to open water. THEN, and only then, do we let our guard down and discuss stuff.
>>19115437OH SHIT. I JUST REALIZED. THE CHURCH MAN IS THE SHAGNASTY. SHIT FUCK RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN RUN.
>>19115463You know, what if Berserker kills jack and wears his skin?
rolled 28 = 28>>19115507Um, what? What is this about? How did you arrive to this conclusion.I'M SUPPOSED TO BE THE PARANOID VOICE, DAMMIT!Still - are the wards of the Church intact? I though these place were spiritually fortified all to hell and back.
>>19115522Then we are well and truly fucked. Multiple Shagnasties, all over the city.
>>19115522Impossible. Servants fade to nothing when killed.>>19115507Care to explain? We're not dealing with Kirei this time around.
>>19115536>>19115547Fearful ledgend was invoked. You know, the thing that summons Shagnasty? That church man is already dead. He's wearing his skin. We are right in front of him. We can't let him know we know. Or we are dead as shit.
>>19115560Um. Fearful Legend is Shagnasty's secondary Noble Phantasm. Say his name, and he comes.
>>19115581And THIS MOTHERFUCKER>>19115194DID SAY IT'S NAME. So he's here. He is here. We are in a confined area, tired as hell, and he is here. This is not good at all.
>>19115596Yeah, but he said it before we got here. And Servants aren't allowed to attack the Church rep. It's neutral ground.Still, never hurts to be cautious. AND WHERE THE FUCK ARE THOSE GODSDAMNED BULLETS?!
rolled 98 = 98>>19115560Ask him to look at what we have in our pocket.then show a makeup mirror and make him look.Bam, nerfed Berserker
>Oh god it's him!WhatNo. No, I'd feel it. "Sir. I have come to inquire about the current roster.""Ah. Rider, Lancer, Caster, Archer, Berserker, and Saber still compete. Rider, Lancer, Caster, Archer, and Saber's Master's still live. Lancer, Caster, Archer, Berserker, and Saber all have their full command spells." he says. "Have you any other questions?""Are there any restrictions against summoning aside from the Grail's?" I ask. "If something that concerns the chu-""If there is an issue that concerns us, we will deal with the matter. It is not for you to decide."
>>19115627I don't think Berserker cares for the rules.
>>19115639Welp. That's that, then. Back to the ship, cast off, GTF to open water, discuss with Lancer. Ask her if she agrees about Rider's possible identity.
rolled 33 = 33>>19115639There IS a matter which concerns the Holy See. A Demon has been summoned by this ritual. One with prana-rending claws and a penchant for flesh. If out-of-control, it'll kill thousands of potential converts and faithful! It must be stopped!(Why, yes, I do want to goose the ass of a curry-fed combat goddess. why do you ask?)
>>19115639WaitIf Berserker has all the command seals but his master is dead... does that mean he can buff himself up with them? Or is he being controlled by another master?
>>19115639Ok. Assassin is out of the running.Wait, Berserker's master is dead. Oh shit. OH SHIT. We may have a demon in charge of it's own command spells. Or Caster is in charge of Berserker. Either way, it isn't good. Berserker is our next target.
>>19115639>Berserker's master is deadI am confuzzled. Can definitely not Candyman be his own master, even as a Berserker?
>>19115639Holy shit. Hold the phone. Shagnasty's Master is dead.BOB BRAIN WAVE.This asshole comes when we call his name, right?Pull a Henderson. Trap a building, yell his name, run like fuck, hit the detonator
>>19115703Have Odie do it, then make him go spirit form to avoid the damage? BRILLIANT. Let's go find an abandoned warehouse and set it up. How do you like your Shagnasty Liz? Deep fried or extra crispy?
>>19115682Shagnasty must've skinned his Master and kept the seals. That's a big, big problem. We've got a demon running around without a leash.CALL THE WHITE COUNCIL! WE NEED INJUN JOE!
>>19115755Or a demon killer. I think we might need to call Saber in on this one. If any class has an anti demon weapon, it's that one. Otherwise, we're going to need Archer, Rider, and Lancer to take this sucker down. And that's only if Shagnasty hasn't allied with Caster. Then we'd need Saber just to resist half the magic thrown our way.
>>19115786We need to be wary as fuck around Saber. He has power in SPADES. Literally everyone we've met has warned us about Saber.I still like the idea of an empty warehouse and hundreds of Claymores coated with ash."Heeeere ----------, whoosagoboy! C'mere, you!".....KABOOM!
>>19115862Alright. Ash coated Claymore mines. How are we going to get that hardware on short notice though. Also, Shagnastys may be able to shrug off nukes. I have no Idea how we're going to hurt this thing without bring in in Saber, or enough explosives to level half of Seattle and putting them in one place.
>>19115892http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skin-walkerRead last paragraph of first section
>>19115982I get that the ash is supposed to kill it, but what if, because this isn't a true Shagnasty or something, we just make it mad? More explosives then?
>>19116017Always more explosives. BOOM makes everything better.But I think ash would work. Every Servant has a weakness, and that's Shagnasty's only weakness.
>>19116029Alright. But more explosives, just to be safe then? Maybe an airstrike after we blow the building? Or should we save calling in the A-10's for Saber?
>>19116062I think just Kiritsuguing them should be good. I'm just wary of Saber. Anyway. Immediate goals (as I see them): Get somewhere safe (Our house, the boat, etc.), make plans with Ody and Atalanta, Try to confirm Rider's identity.
>>19116100Ditto. Just waiting on Ego then.
>>19116113Yup.He's having connection issues, so we should see an update SOMEtime...
>>19116138More A-10 while we wait then?
>>19116154Go for it. Although I may have to dip into my P-47 folder instead here in a minute
>>19116174Your gonna have to, this is all I've got.
You guys are thinking about this wrong. Odie can sail a boat damn good, AND get us basically anything.We get him to steal a battleship, and bombard the fucker. Draw him to one of the islands, the blow the shit out of it.
>>19116195Alright, 'ere we go
>>19116201That's a little TOO obvious. An A-10 blows up a building, that's just an accident, or can be covered up as blowing up terrorists or something. But a battleship? That's going to be all over the news.
>>19116234No different than half of Fuyuki getting blown up.
>>19116201That's...actually valid. Magos, you know of any milspec ships on which gunnery can be handled from the bridge?
>>19116100>Get somewhere safe (Our house, the boat, etc.), make plans with Ody and Atalanta, Try to confirm Rider's identity.I nod, frowning as I leave. The trip back to the peirs is uneventful, and I stretch. Lancer grasps my hand. "You know." she says quietly. "We're alone, now." "I... Don't think now's the time." I manage. "I mean, there's a lot of danger..." she smiles, gently pushing me against a nearby wall. "W-w-"I don't get another chance to speak before she kisses my lips, once, looking me in the eyes. "L-lancer, someone might-""See?" she asks, leaning close. "You're implying I care." "N-no, I, I, uhm. It's dangerous. There's a lot of Servants, and..." She raises an eyebrow. "Are you sure?""I-I'm sure." She smiles, stretching. "Truly~?"
>>19116244Difference is that it involves military hardware. On a much larger scale than a single plane.
>>19116234...Nah, they'd probably just blame the terrorists.I swear, the "terrorists" thing these days is like yelling "COMMIE!" within range of Joe McCarthy. Everyone jumps on.
>>19116263DEAD END DEAD END DEAD END DEAD END
>>19116257Nuclear subs, I think, for the missiles. But that's a last ditch plan. Otherwise I don't know. Maybe cruse missiles can be fired from the bridge, but otherwise, I have no clue.
>>19116281Eh. Seems a lot more risky to me.>>19116263Aww yeah. Bob like. Time for happy to be alive lesbian antics. Bow-chicka-bow-wow~
>>19116263Gawd. Welp, we've figured out HER weakness - she's a nympho. Not that I'm complaining. But we might want to postpone that until we actually get back on board and make a plan for tomorrow.
>>19116354Might as well be on the boat. We aren't going anywhere this time Liz.
>>19116354And I WANT A RIDEALONG!C'mon, we pulled your ass outta the fire AGAIN, we deserve a thank-you, at least.
Archived in case this dies.
>>19116469It better not. We just got to HOT LESBIAN CATGIRL MAKE OUT.Bob would kill himself rather than miss out on that.
>We aren't going anywhere~Oh, go fuck yourselves. We head back to the boat. I confer with Archer regarding Berserker, and he agrees that we should stock up on ash - but he has another idea. "It's a little insane. But I've learned something about David and his magic." he says, speaking plainly. "He's able to make things... Well, more. Amplication of reactions. And I got an idea."He leans forward. "Is not volcanic ash white?"
>>19116480EGO's still got internet issues.This calls for MOAR PLANES.Also, y u no IRC?
>>19116493I can see where this is going.
>>19116505IRC seems to hate me right now.>>19116493You brilliant motherfucker. Time to raid a volcano then?
>>19116493YES. OH GODS, YES.Wait. Wouldn't Rainier going off kind of flatten Seattle?
>>19116546>>19116523That...strikes me as overkill
>>19116546>>19116523"Wait. Rainier? isn't that... a bit much? It'd flatten Seattle!" "We make it rain ash. Choke the streets.""...Pompeii." "Pompeii did not have the weather you do. I am counting on that." he says. "We strike into the mountain, erupt it, and allow Berserker to die by the hands of whoever strikes him next. Then, we move to the next enemy. Sometimes you must, ah... what was the saying... Break a few eggs to make an omelet."I look at David. He smiles back, uncertainly.
>>19116546The resulting mudflows would bury most of the southern 'burbs: Kent, Renton, Tacoma, etc. The rest of Seattle north of I-90 would be fucked up, but not annihilated.
>>19116719WIZARDS! No sense of right or wrong. Lets make Seattle into silent hill.
>>19116719No. This is a whole scale slaughter. We need the ash though. Maybe, wait, isn't there some in the soil around St. Helens? Could we get some here ASAP and have David replicate it?
I guess we're fucking up air traffic then. Hope the Church has some meteorologists and geologists in its pocket.
>>19116719Problem is, I'm pretty sure the ash isn't lethal on its own. It most likely just makes wounds unhealable, or acts like the metal jacket on an AP round. We still need a delivery system that'll do some damage.And when he realizes what's going on, what's to stop him from hiding until the noise stops?
>>19116809Good point.Surely there has to be some Volcanic Ash in a lab somewhere. We can just steal it.
I'm sure our agents can provide ash. Isn't it used in concrete or something? Also, some latin festivals are big on ash, when they aren't big on chalk or fruits.
>>19116719I still like the "Burn the clothes for ash and fight Berserker in underwear" idea. Just saying.
>>19116719Also, we could just burn our clothes and have David replicate that white ash. Problem solved, no need to set off a volcano.
>>19113800>What a night, eh?>Heh. For me and Lancer. I made sure to knock you fools out for the interim. And I'm never gonna tell.All right, Mistress Liz! Shame you didn't provide any fanservice for your familiar though....oh what a cruel mistress. :(
I vote for the small scale 'burn clothes' plan.
>>19116965I know, right? It ain't fair! But hey, at least Liz can't deny shlicking Atalanta last night anymore. And probably will again.
Just buy the damn ash, or burn some matches and replicate.Every agent now goes with rounds of ash floating in rubber or whatever.
>>19116968>>19116875>>19116881"Damnit, I'm not going to fight him in my underwear!"I pause, looking at the strange looks I'm getting. ...Anyway. "We can get ash from a lab, buy it, or produce it ourselves." I say. "There's no need to kill the whole damn town.""It's the most certain method.""It's also the most inefficient. I'm a wizard. A Mage. I am not a cackling, maniacal overlord in spiky armor. I won't budge on this, Archer." "Very well." he says. "I'm still up for the 'burning clothes' thing if you are~" I feel my face flush as I turn and stalk off. "Archer, just, just go steal some!" I manage, running to my chambers. Argh, it feels like my face is on fire.A knock on my room door. "Eliza, are you alright?" it's Lancer...
>>19117022Awwww yeah. While Archer is stealing panties to burn (or ash, but that's boring), we are gonna get some!
>>19117022Hey. HEY. We just prevented you from having to blow up a town, figured out what Berserker is, and are god damn awesome.You owe us at least ONCE a lesbian funtime romp.
>>19117022Shes come to comfort you Liz, I'm so proud you've found someone to care for you.
>>19117022'ERE WE GO!Actually, no. I'll be a gentleman (for once). If you want us to look away, Lis, we will....Maybe.
>>19117073We'll put our spiritual hands over our eyes but peek every so often.
Call our Agents too, bullet molds and tools to make our own rounds.
SHE OWES US SEXY TIME COMPLETE WITH SEAFOOD METAPHORS DAMMIT!We did all the damn headwork, and it's her fault for giving an incorporeal spirit a libido.
>Finally caught upAnd Ego, I actually had a hunch you would use what-must-not-be-named. You did say you had a "native american anti-hero" to stat.
>>19117073I may do a re-color of this or another picture. So we see Lizzie the way Ego described her in the last thread.
"I'm alright. Come in." I say, and the door opens. Lancer looks... ashamed, somehow."Look, I'm... I'm being... I shouldn't push you. I know how hard it is to..." "It's alright. I'm just... Nervous. On edge." I find myself saying while I pace. "Archer is getting some ash together, but... That monster is still scary.""I know." she says quietly, taking my hand. "I just... If I can make that fear and worry go away...""Why... Why do you like me, so much?" I find myself asking. "I'm... I'm frumpy, and small, and... And, I probably still taste and smell like alcohol..."A gentle finger on my lips, and she pushes me onto the bed. Sorry. This time is special, familiar. It's between us...((END OF THREAD. TIGER DOJO TIME! ASK QUESTIONS, GET ANSWERS! FUN ALL AROUND. ))
>>19117316You know, their relationship is actually getting kind of cute.Why DOES Atalanta like Liz so much?
>>19117342Simple. I open my mouth, allow my vocal chords to vibrate to make the sound of 'No' come out of my voicehole.Alternatively, I shoot the bitch then say no.
>>19117316Oh, how cruel Mistress is to us. :( Women: they're practically born ingrates.
>>19117316Oh, here we go again.Good run, EGO. When's next session?
>>19117374That image is incredibly depressing.
>>19117374As always, next tuesday at noon.
>>19117316Is Atalanta getting prana out of these encounters? She could just be using Liz for magic as her kid probably has next to nothing.
>>19117342I kinda like that one. That might make a good re-colored Liz.Do we all agree that Rin Tohsaka is probably the best model for Liz with respect to physical appearance??
>>19117405Not at all. Liz is like 25.
>>19117405The hair's a bit too long, though. And Rin looks too happy.
>>19117382I know. But it's such a nice thought.Imagine if that WAS possible? And then realize that, in at least one of the Nasuverse's parallel universes, it DID happen. And then it isn't depressing anymore.
>>19117425Why are you ignoring our questions?>>19117395>>19117352There was also something you promised for the Tiger dojo as well
>>19117425Hmm, point. Maybe if I find one of Rin in tsuntsun mode & alter the hair a little bit...
His internet's shit, give him a minute.
>>19117395Depends on how the encounter goes. Any time bodily fluids end up in the partner's body, there is some prana transferred. However, without the Master/Servant bond, this amount is limited. And to a Servant, such an amount is spare change at best. >>19117352Eliza is taking risks she doesn't need to for David's benefit, and thus her own. Also, someone asked about Odie using modern vernacular - the Grail does update Servants to tech and historical knowledge, so this sort of stuff is par for course. After all, Broskander fucking loved vidya.>>19117456Naw, I mean Eliza has a sort of "The world loves to shit on me" look tro her face. >>19117370Man I'm not about to write that shit out in the thread, I'm working on a pastebin.
Would other regions have their own Grail Wars, with their own seven? I have this idea in my head of World Grail Wars, Everyone Dies Edition.>Mafia and mercenary groups everywhere. If you don't have a small army to play with, shit is coming down.>India and pals is the major player, summoning Achilles, Myrmidons and more greeks, just because they are more globally famous.>Japan is miffed about everyone edging on their ritual, but has a hodgepodge of Servants. China/Korea block goes hero crazy, along with army crazy.>Euroblock ties Russian soldiers with carefully planned and diverse Servants. North America stole one from them and they're pissed. One of their Masters is from a cartel.>Latin America is spearheaded from Panama, but with multicultural Servants.>Someone in Africa summoned an Avenger and goes around wrecking shit.
>>19117490>I'm working on a pastebin.
>>19117512>"L-lancer..." I barely manage, her fingers dancing on my bared upper chest, which she kisses gently. Here, have a preview.
>>19117498Go read the visual novel
So are we not supposed to say kinwalker or something?
>>19117568It's kind of like the Candyman horror film. Calling or thinking his name acts like a giant 'Eat Me Please' beacon so he immediately comes running.
>>19117568Let me tell you exactly how Fearful Legend works. It really should be a Skill, because not only does this faggot have it, lots can - Satan comes to mind. Essentially, it's an ability that pairs off with Mad enhancement for evil entities, especially those that behave like fey. Speaking, or in some cases, thinking their name, allows them to know of your prescence. Since it's a NP for Berserker, not only does it do this, it also boosts basic stats one rank when it occurs. Skinbro's version also alerts the one who triggers it and causes fear. Skinbro isn't capable of much else while seeking out the Speaker. It's how his Mad Enhancement works. Without it, he's an inordinately durable Caster.
>>19117568The Naagloshii (I can say that now, we're in Tiger Dojo) is summoned by the use of its name - that's why I freaked the fuck out earlier after I posted it and realized what I'd done.It's not that you CAN'T say it, it's just that, if you do, the Skinwalker will be there in seconds.
>>19117640And he'll be pissed as fuck. After all, you interpreted his wine tasting with Gilgamesh. You bastard.
How will combat resolution work? Based on stats, Phantasms, planning and dice.
>>19117625Awww, so no Lovecraft, then?
>>19117817How I want it to. :VAll of that except dice play a part.
>>19117825The Skinwalker is a Lovecraftian level horror. It's fear incarnate.
>>19117838I'm still holding out for Caster Lovecraft, somehow.
>>19117835Then how do we measure antics? We don't even have Aspects to tag.
Here's the plan; we down a bottle of Prozac before we Henderson the fucker. That way it can't gain any power from our far too mellow selves while we blow it up
ENJOY YOUR LESBIUMShttp://pastebin.com/q1vnKPKP
>>19117851I thought we agreed that Caster was Stolas? or at least something that had an agreement with him.
>>19117898It might be Stolas but it could also be King Fucking Solomon. Which is dangerous, very dangerous.
>>19117894I have no clue what lesbiums are but I'm assuming it's awesome.
>>19117912They are both dangerous, in completely different ways.
>>19117894>It's as infuriating as trying to talk to the dentistI was disappointed there was no seafood imagery, but this made up for it. Well done sir.
>>19117894Needs more description of her nibbling as "the slight pinching of crawfish" or her hands as "gentle pushing clams"
>>19117894Buggery, we gave away that we knew her name. Worth it I suppose but still.
>>19117894Also it's canon and might be important.
>>19117894>mfw$269,000 ; ntsKor Oh yes, captcha, watching Liz & Atalanta get it on would be worth that much.
>>19117984Well shit, she knows we know who she is.
>>19117894http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnSj66jZ7N0some appropriate music.
>>19118005Spear.Woman.Lion ears.It wasn't that hard to guess.
WE'RE BEING SEDUCED GODDAMMITTHIS IS A FUCKING HOLY GRAIL WAR YOU DON'T FUCK ANY SERVANT THAT ISN'T YOURS
>>19118027What about the Shirou/Sakura/Rider threesome at the end of Fate/hollow ataraxia??
>>19118079SHIROU'S A FUCKING IDIOT, THIS ISN'T NEWS
>>19118027What about allied catgirls who happen to be servants?Dude, just go with it.
>>19117894>"Ah, Ah, Ata... Atalanta!"Oh shit. That just kinda...slipped out, didn't it?Whoopsie
>>19118096I wouldn't kick Sakura or Rider out of the bed for eating crackers.And I damn sure wouldn't turn down a threesome offer from mah waifu & her hot Servant.
>>19118103>just finish reading the pastebin>mfwDamn, Ego: Nasu should hire you to write the H-scene dialogue.
>>19118211I have a lot of practice. Finally came in handy.
>>19118229Your expertise shows through. That's some of the best fapfiction I've ever read.
EGO, if you are still here. Why did Berserker run off when he did? He could have easily killed us.
>>19118468Is that what you think? ...Interesting.
>>19118494Why is that interesting? It made a mockery of both servants, and didn't even have any real damage after Lancer attacked it.
>>19118521Go read up on Shagnasties. There is a reason he doesn't want his identity found out.
>>19118494Would it be possible to bounce Shagnasty around the city by having different people say his name?Also how compelled is he to follow someone saying his name and would he know if it was leading them into a trap? For example could we stick someone on top of Mount Rainier, have them say Shagnasty and he'd go after them?
>>19118618Have dozens of people in different locations say its name at the EXACT SAME TIME.See what happens.
>>19118638It'd either be hilarious, confusing to the Shagnasty or it'd appear everywhere at once and we'd just leave Seattle.
>>19118638Better. Use a text to speech program. He doesn't gain any power, and gets bounced around like a bitch.
Considering his skin was shed off by enough (magic?) bullets, it is either a case of using fire with indiscretion or the fact that a powerful enough Phantasm will blow him away whole.Also, he is Matrix Agent fast, seeing how he just dodged stuff without being seen.
>>19118769I don't think the bullets are magical themselves. Magic bullets are rare as all fuck and I don't think the Biker has the resources to outfit his entire fucking gang with magic ones. I'm guessing that his guys somehow count as El Cid's army which makes whatever they wield somewhat magic or a minor minor NP weapon like thing.
>>19118689Microsoft Bob shall fear Shagnasty's might!Perhaps we could set him upon Clippy. Regardless of the outcome, we'd come out ahead
We need to have a Dresden crossover. Because Dresden. And McCoy. And Kincaid.
..Haaaah. Dayum shame that we didn't go all Pompei on Seattle. That would have been fun. Though we would probably have the Church or the Association on backs. I think that incinerating a City of that size could be considered a No-no. Even if it's fun. >>19117894Eeeeh. EGO, I am dissapoint. There was no seafood, no jackhammers and no educated prostitute-movements and the biggest letdown of all: No hips that moved on their own.
>>19118689Did somebody say...BOUNCE?
>>19118494When exactly was its NP invoked? Was it the word Naagloshii that did it or was it just 'skinwalker'?
>>19117625Please tell me the stat change isn't permanent. Because that would be very bad.
>>19118993Man she's adorable.
>>19120982>>19118993She needs more fanart and real art.
>>19120982Wait, that's what Atlanta looks like?... I expected something musclier.
>>19121245Fanart. There's been pictures (And models!) of Saber in full on musclegirl, which is how she's actually imagined to look by Nasu.Also, base class is Archer, so naturally she looks willowy. (Despite real archers being nothing like that.)
>>19121308At least it makes sense with Saber, she was kept in the body of a 16 year old girl, right? And she's so strong because of her magic?Eh, I guess that works for Atalanta too. Still, expected something HUGER
Ah, EGO/ You delicious smut is delightfulShall we assume it is canon?
>>19122291Yes, it is canon. But it's probably the last one (Don't expect one for the bath, or one after this) unless demand his huge.
>>19122320>implying it won't be
I kind of like Eliza's hinted alcoholism. I want to see this developed a bit more
