I am the bone of my sword

Steel is my body and fire is my blood

I have created over a thousand blades

Unknown to Death, Nor known to Life

I have withstood pain to create many weapons

Yet, those hands will never hold anything

So as I pray,

Unlimited Blade Works.

The Holy Grail War of Fuyuki, also called Heaven's Feel, is a ritual that has been ongoing for two hundred years. Established by the Tohsaka, Matou, and Einzbern families as a means to reach Akasha, it is currently thought to be only a competition for something recognized as a possible Holy Grail. Seven magi are chosen by the Grail as Masters and, with support from the Grail, allowed to summon seven Servants to do battle. The winning pair is supposed to be able to claim the Holy Grail and utilize it to grant a wish for each of them. Its true purpose is to actually utilize the seven Servants returning to the root as a way to form a hole directly to it.

There has yet to be even one true winner who actually claimed the Grail in all five wars, and due to Angra Mainyu being summoned in the Third Holy Grail War, it would be impossible for a winner to have their true wish granted in most cases. The Grail, which is normally "colorless", was corrupted and turned into a manifestation of All the World's Evils. It cannot grant wishes without also causing great destruction, though only the Einzberns are directly aware of that fact. Overall, it is a minor event in the magi world. The stakes could be considered the highest up until the Second War, as the Church became involved afterward.

The original purpose of the ritual was to recover the Third Magic lost by the Einzberns, the "Cup of Heaven." Around 1790, Justizia Lizleihi von Einzbern, Nagato Tohsaka, and Zouken Makiri created the system in order to create a gate leading to Akasha. At that time, the Mage's Association and the Church were locked in a battle to the death, so a land in the Far East, where the Church could not monitor, was chosen. The Einzberns provided the alchemy to create it and prepared the vessel for the Grail, the Tohsaka provided the necessary land and called forth the Servants, and the Makiri assembled the magecraft to stabilize the starting materials and designed the Command Seals that command the Servants. Back when the Tohsaka were developing the ritual of the Heaven's Feel along with the Makiri and the Einzbern, Nagato's daughter played a greater role in the completion of the Holy Grail War system than her father.

The Holy Grail War itself was devised by Justizia, and she was to become the key of the ritual. The Great Grail was created through forming a large circuit from many multi-layered Crests carved onto a bare rock over fifty meters in diameter. It was covered in multiple layers of circuits, while its many geometric figures turned in place. Justizia stood in the center of the it, and became the key to reenacting the Third Magic. The Holy Grail would have only been just a Holy Grail without her, as her will was required for Heavens Feel. Kishua Zelretch Schweinorg acted as a witness to the event.

Currently, only the Tohsakas want to reach Akasha, while the Einzberns and Makiri only want the completion of the Grail, that is, the revival of the Third Magic. However, both Zouken Matou and Shirou Emiya note these ambitions are apparently impossible as there was never a victor for the past four Heaven's Feels and the Grail became corrupted by Angra Mainyu after the Third War.

First Holy Grail War

The First Holy Grail War took place around 1800, but it was not meant to be anything like the future Holy Grail Wars. It was not named as such, only meant to be a ritual for the families to reach Akasha. It took ten years from its establishment to gather the necessary energy to manifest, but the Three Families originally planning to utilize it realized that the system could only allow for one person to utilize it. Though they had the same goals, their opinions on how to reach them were different, so the unforeseen aspect caused them to break off their alliance. They instead agreed to proceed with the system and means to create the Grail, but they would then become enemies when it was summoned.

Due to requiring seven Heroic Spirits to achieve the ritual and seven Masters to summon them, they had brought in four outside magi with the call of "We've succeeded in manifesting the Grail. If you'd like to witness this miracle, join us and become Masters." Though the outsider magi had only sought to learn about the ritual of activating the Grail, they used the internal quarrel as an opportunity to grant their own desires. Though the Three Families held the rights to the Grail, winning the conflict would allow them to obtain a wish regardless of the ancestry.

It was not a major conflict in the end, and can be called a "small quarrel of sorts" due to the conflicting opinions and interests. From the point of view of the Einzberns, the first time ended before the completion. The evocation site of the Grail was held at Ryuudou temple on Mount Enzou.

Second Holy Grail War

The Second Holy Grail War was held around 1860's, formally take on the name of the "Holy Grail War." Developing into a war for the second time, it pointed out shortcomings in the rules due to it developing into a murder spree in which nobody survived. It ended with no victory, and the Three Families took it as a lesson to create more precise rules such as bringing in a third party like the Church. The evocation site of the Grail was held at Tohsaka mansion.

Third Holy Grail War

The Third Holy Grail War took place in the 1930s, held on the eve of World War II. The fourth evocation site was confirmed and established, later becoming the center of the developing residential area of Shinto, the Fuyuki City Hall. Jubstacheit von Einzbern prepared the Einzbern forest and castle as the family's headquarters. The Tohsaka and the Edelfelt families were participants. The Edelfelts had two Masters, each with the same Saber-class Servant due to their unique Sorcery Trait. The Enizberns, tired of losing out on reclaiming the Third Magic, subverted the usual system in an attempt to summon the Zoroastrian god, Angra Mainyu. They obtained Avenger, which replaced the Berserker-class, but he was a weak Servant without any abilities.

During the course of the War, there were battles over the Lesser Grail with the Imperial Army and the Nazis as well, and the fighting unfolded in the Imperial Capital. Avenger was lost early during the conflict, while upholding the Saber class' reputation, at least one of the Edelfelt sisters made it to the end. They were ultimately defeated by the Tohsaka, and the fate of the younger sister is unknown. The older sister ran away from the country, promising never to come back. The Lesser Grail was destroyed during the battles before the victor could be decided, so the ritual became meaningless and failed. The evocation site of the Grail was set to be at the Fuyuki Church.

There was a meeting held at a suitable time that appointed the then young Risei Kotomine as the supervisor for the next Holy Grail War. The ritual ended in failure, but Avenger, Angra Mainyu, was absorbed and the Greater Grail was contaminated. Up until that point, only true Heroic Spirits were summoned, but that contamination allowed for "something other than a Heroic Spirit" to be summoned during later Holy Grail Wars.

Fourth Holy Grail War

The Fourth Holy Grail War took place around the 1990's, supervised by Risei Kotomine. The corruption caused by Angra Mainyu took effect, allowing for the summoning of improper Servants like Gilles de Rais. The destruction of the Lesser Grail during the previous war led Jubstacheit von Einzbern to develop inside the body of a homunculus, leading to the creation of Irisviel von Einzbern. While the Holy Grail manifested, Kiritsugu Emiya, realizing that it could not grant his wish, effectively betrayed his Einzbern patrons by destroying it. The contents of it spilling out caused a large conflagration that killed five hundred people and destroyed 134 buildings. The only survivors of the participants were Kiritsugu, Kirei Kotomine, and Waver Velvet. Gilgamesh, through being incarnated by the mud of Angra Mainyu, also managed to still exist in the world.

Due to the inconclusive termination of the War, the Grail's failure to grant a wish to the selected victor, Kiritsugu, and the victor's subsequent destruction of the Grail, it resulted in the premature occurrence of the subsequent Fifth Holy Grail War only ten years later. The unexpended thaumaturgical energy accumulated through the elimination of Servants was recycled due to the destruction of the Lesser Grail before the Greater Grail could direct the accumulated mana to establish its pathway, thus trapping some of the unused mana within the Grail.

Kiritsugu had planned to demolish the ritual as of the proper scheduled time of the Fifth Heaven's Feel by arranging for the physical collapse of the Great Grail System before the originally estimated date. The process involved utilizing stocked dynamite and the manipulation of ley-lines to ensure a severe localized earthquake in the targeted area within thirty to forty years of the Fourth War. The premature occurrence of the Fifth Holy Grail War and the subsequent destruction of the ritual means that it no longer has a purpose.

Fifth Holy Grail War

The Fifth Holy Grail War took place in the 2000s. Kirei Kotomine maintained his contract with Archer from the previous war, and though he was supposed to act as the impartial mediator from the Church, he mortally wounded Bazett Fraga McRemitz and took her Servant, Lancer. While there were various possible scenarios in Fate/stay night, Shirou Emiya emerged as the victor and destroyed the Grail rather than activating it. The manifestation of Angra Mainyu seeking to grant a wish entangled Bazett in the events of Fate/hollow ataraxia.

Ten years after the fifth Holy Grail War in the 2010s, the Holy Grail itself was rumoured to be dismantled. It was crushed to pieces in front of everyone's eyes and laid to rest so it was no longer in use and there was no longer a point to The Holy Grail War if the Holy Grail didn't exist anymore. The Holy Grail War officially ended there and there was to be no more wars at all.

But, of course, in modern times humans can be a little....dumb. and sometimes don't really think of the other possibilities. Yes, the Holy Grail was destroyed but didn't they know that the golden cup is more powerful then it seems? It was capable of granting anyone's wish once they claimed it...so it was a probability that it was also capable of many other abilities.

It took great time, about 20 years after the Holy Grail was destroyed, but the Holy Grail eventually grew back together. It found every tiny piece of it and brought itself together...resurrecting it. It is now the beautiful golden piece it once was and sits alone....

As soon as the Holy Grail was back together again, our heroes soon got the message. From all over the world....well, not in this world. From different events and time periods in our times....Mostly from the past. Legendary heroes that have made a big impact on today's world and have made it to our children's history books in school. Everyone knows of them.... whether old or young.

But this time's a little different. Every one of the heroes have tried to erase the thought of The Holy Grail War that happened over thirty tears ago....and soon forgot what it was like. The rules have now changed a little bit and everyone has to follow them in order to have a chance at claiming the Holy Grail once again.

Masters. What are masters? They were the only people who had control of the heroes of the past that they summoned to come fight alongside with them during the Holy Grail. They had three command seals tattooed permanently onto their hand...and they could use those command seals against the heroes whenever they wished. Whatever they said when using a command seal had to be done by the heroes. The heroes were forced to listen. Whether they wanted to do the task or not.

But, as said, rules have changed and masters were just picky people getting in the way of the strong heroes. There are no masters in this Sixth Holy Grail War and the heroes are under no ones commands. They do as they please this time and fight whom they want to fight. There is no stopping them.

Another rule has slightly altered. The Holy Grail can now be claimed by the first two people who do so. That means The Holy Grail can now grant two peoples wishes instead of just one. That also means there now can be some alliances...

Now, in the current year 2032, technology has surely advanced and reached high standards. The heroes are summoned to a world that is so different from theirs and must learn to do things on their own from now on. They are to appear in different places all over the busy and popular Japanese city, Tokyo, Japan.

Who will win?

{Side Note: Okay. So there are seven main/standard classes in total so there will be seven characters. When reserving, please include what historical person your character is based off of :). Also, in this War, instead of the characters names being the class they are in, they will have human names they go by and made up for themselves so they can be easily identified. }

Lancer, Knight of the Lance, is one of the seven normal Servant classes summoned for the Holy Grail War and considered one of the Three Knight classes along with Saber and Archer. Servants placed within this class, many of which are Heroic Spirits who were knights, are very agile, proficient in hit-and-run tactics that capitalize on range and speed, and skilled with long-range melee weapons such as spears and lances. The qualifying conditions to be placed within the class are second only to the Saber class, requiring overall excellent attributes and a high agility attribute. Their only particular class ability is Magic Resistance and Battle Continuation.

Saber, Knight of the Sword, is one of the seven normal Servant classes summoned for the Holy Grail War and considered one of the Three Knight classes along with Lancer and Archer. Servants placed within this class are agile and powerful melee warriors adept at swordsmanship. The qualifying conditions require the Heroic Spirits to have legends as a knights of the sword, and it is the class that requires the highest levels of attributes in all but the Magic attribute. The Saber class has, without fail, proceeded to the final battleground in every Holy Grail War, so it is boasted as the strongest among all classes.

Servants of this class have high ratings in all categories, and the compatible Heroic Spirits usually excel in delivering powerful burst attacks. The Class Abilities include the strongest Magic Resistance of all classes, and the Riding ability like the Rider Class.

Archer, Knight of the Bow, is one of the seven normal Servant classes in the Heaven's Feel ritual; and it is placed among the Three Knight classes along with Saber and Lancer. Servants placed within this class are usually proficient with projectiles and excel in possessing powerful Noble Phantasms. More so than any other class, their true strength, and the qualifying condition to place in the class is determined not by their attributes; but the possession of powerful projectile weapons or special abilities related to projectile weapons.

Their main class ability is "Independent Action”; their earlier ability to act independently for a length of time without an active supply of prana from their Master. This makes them suitable as scouts; it allowed them to survive for duration of time if their contract with their Master is severed with more time granted by higher ranks. Those with the highest ranks, such as Gilgamesh, can be difficult to control as this ability allows them to of travelled where they pleased and do as they wished without anything besides their own moral compass and the threat of Command Spells to restrict them. They also have the class ability of Magic Resistance; however, it is not as great as that of the Saber class. Although Servants of the Archer class will generally be assumed to have Noble Phantasms relating to a bow, it is not necessary for some, instead sporting some sort of projectile.

Rider, Mounted Knight, is one of the seven normal Servant classes summoned for the Holy Grail War. Servants placed within this class are those known for riding mounts, living beasts or human constructs, during their lives. They generally have lower attributes compared to the Three Knight Classes, but the abilities of the mounts described in their legends compensate by granting them powerful Noble Phantasms or abilities. They have the class abilities of Magic Resistance and a high rank in Riding, allowing them to fully utilize the abilities of their mounts. Depending on the rank, they can take full control of everything from simple horses, modern machinery like motorcycles and planes, and even Divine Beasts. Dragons are the only exception, as the ability to ride them falls under a different skill.

Caster, the magus, is one of the seven normal Servant classes summoned for the Holy Grail War. Servants placed within this class are adept in magecraft, and the only qualifying condition is the mastery of sorceries of the highest caliber compared to the specific parameter requirements of the other classes. Their class abilities are Territory Creation, altering the surrounding lands in favor of their sorcery, and Item Construction, which allows the magus to create magical items and tools. Due to not requiring any strong statistics, they generally have low combat abilities, and due to the majority of Servants having some form of Magic Resistance, this class is thought to be the weakest of all seven. This perception can be made into an advantage, as Casters are sometimes underestimated, often to the misfortune of their foes.

Assassin is one of the seven normal Servant classes summoned for the Holy Grail War; Servants of this class are skilled at operating covertly, stealthy, and silently. This class is one of the weaker classes at fighting; as its members possess low attributes due to not having glorious legends as heroes; so it instead specializes in killing Masters rather than Servants. It is an oddity compared to the more formal knight classes who believe in fair duels and chivalry in combat; they will attack using the most unfair and favorable conditions; and with these conditions, it is possible for an Assassin to match and defeat other Servants. Deprived of a Master, Servants of the Assassin class generally possess the ability to remain with the world for about forty hours, which is roughly equivalent to a proficiency of B- in Independent Action.

The Assassins' special class ability is ‘‘Presence Concealment”; which allows them to remain undetected when spying or preparing to ambush their targets. The use of this ability during battle is the lifeline of Assassin; the greatest skill of each legally summoned Assassin is expressed as their Noble Phantasm; which all share the name Zabaniya—the name of the 19 angels that guard Hell and torment its inhabitants under Archangel Maalik, according to Islamic faith.

Berserker, Mad Warrior, is one of the seven normal Servant classes summoned for the Holy Grail War. Servants placed within this class are always Heroic Spirits who have gone berserk during battle at least once in their lifetime. This trait allows them to use the special ability Mad Enhancement, which trades their consciousness and sanity for a large power boost. This class is usually for magi who have summoned Heroic Spirits with insufficient abilities and attributes, allowing them to strengthen their Servants to make up for their lower attributes and compete against stronger opponents. While it is ideal for Servants to reach the level of the Heroic Spirit, the class allows for their attributes to surpass even the original. If used on an already strong Heroic Spirit, such as Heracles, they will become empowered to truly extraordinary levels. The abuse of this to create powerful Servants has made the class referred to as the strongest of all seven classes.

I am the bone of my sword

Steel is my body and fire is my blood

I have created over a thousand blades

Unaware of loss, Nor aware of gain

Withstood pain to create weapons, waiting for one’s arrival

I have no regrets. This is the only path

My whole life was

~ To Start Things Off... || Hello there! I am really sorry that this RP introduction is soooo long. _:(´□`」 ∠):_ I think I just woke up one morning and decided I wanted to make a Fate/Zero (or Fate/Stay Night. There's so many.) RP and have saved and worked really hard on this. But yes, most of the information including the "History", "Past Wars" and "Classes/Characters" sections are from the Fate Wiki pfft. You actually thought I wrote all of this? So you can always go there if you need extra information/details. The "Current Time" part is completely my own idea though. (┌゚д゚)┌

~ No God-Modding/Mary-Sues || This one is quite simple. You are not invincible and you are not Brad Pitt perfect. (一。一;;)

~ Literacy || WE. ARE. NOT. IN. GRADE. TWO. ヘ(>_<ヘ) I know you know you can write more then just one line if your imagination is working with you! ^_^ I want at least 400 words per post...but more would be nice...

~ Character Reservations || You may reserve a character in the OOC thread. I will not accept peoples characters if you have not asked for a reservation. Even if that CS looks good D: You have 48 hours to at least get in a WIP. Then you have three days to finish up your character. Be sure to get your character done in that time! If you need more time, just shoot me a private message and I'll surely allow you more time! (⌒▽⌒) I don't bite! unless you are Brad Pitt

~ When Life Gets in the Way..|| It's okay! You can just private message me and tell me if something's up and you wont be able to post for awhile. However, if you know you are busy and feel rushed, don't even try to post. Don't come and post less then you normally do just for the fact of posting. If you're busy, take a break! ƪ(‾ε‾“)ʃ

~ Mature Themes || If you haven't noticed, there will be a little gore in this RP. Romance is encouraged, as always! But if anything gets to much, take it to PMs if you really need to. Swearing is allowed, as well....but don't be dropping them F bombs every second word. \(゚ー゚\)

~ Anime || If you're, like, blind....this RP is, like, anime pics only. ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ If you have troubles finding the right FC...I will be glad to help you and I'm sure everybody else will be too. Speaking of anime, when reserving tell me you're favourite anime series and a gif of your favourite character from that series. :3

~ Include Friends! || I really hate it when people are being left out in the OOC thread (and sometimes their characters get left out IC too) So make sure to include everyone!
八(^□^*) This is why we're going to have a relationships thingy so everyone's characters at least have some friendsies... or allies...


~ That is all....for now...|| If you have any questions...please don't be hesitant to ask! :D I love answering questions! Okay...well...I'm done. Thanks for reading. Go reserve now...థ౪థ

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

:\ I really wanted this to start, but with the looks of it...

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

I am DEFINITELY still up for it, I just had some big, rather important questions about my character (which are actually pretty essential to the entire character) for Kokia. I PMed her those questions, but I never got a response, so I never formally started working on my character. But yes I'm still in this if anyone decides to sorta try to revive it ^-^

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

I am definitely still interested, I just suppose I didn't want to start without @Kokia's consent. If it would be alright with you, @Kokia, I would like to formally reserve the Caster, or Magus, role with Dante, the writer of the Divine Comedy and the Inferno, as my historical figure.

My favorite anime is still Gurren Lagann. I'm a shameless Gainax Fanboy. XD

I'm not quite sure who to use as a face claim yet, but I'll find something. I'm thinking of having the Caster be young and small, like previous incarnations of the Caster.

If it's still ok with you, Huntress, I'd love to have us start out together, as Pseudo-Partners. I was planning on making the caster a direct foil of your Rider. He'd be completely un-serious, just a little pervy, and a shameless prankster. However, his heart would be in the right place, and he would know when to be silly and when to be somber. I feel like this would allow us to bring some comedy to an otherwise aggressive, and decidedly noir, story line.

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

@all: So... I was wondering if this RP is still up? I have to admit- I'm guilty- I went through everyone's character pages and only saw that Huntress and I have WIPs up (massive WIPs at that hahahaha). So I was wondering if the other three (you guys) are still interested? If so, I'll get back to finishing up Sullivan. If not...

Sorry for sounding pushy, guys. I'm just really interested in this role-play and what it to get rolling :)
Thanks!

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

Hello! Well met everyone!

As you can see, my name is Shishio, and I'm a friend of Aaron and TheHuntress. :D

(Or at least, I hope I am, otherwise this just got super awkward....)

I digress! I am very interested in this RP! It's very well done, and has a lovely premise. I suppose I'll have to look into Fate/Stay Night now. Yay! More things to do instead of sleeping! :D

I was wondering if there were any roles left, and which ones they might be? I am comfortable, and confident, in my ability to play a role of any sort, and I look forward to playing with you love gentlemen and ladies! While, usually, I prefer to play physical fighters, I am not deterred by the prospect of playing a long-range/support role. Further, if there are no roles left, that's ok too! I don't wanna push any buttons or step on any toes.

Obviously, in order to base the character off of a historical figure, I would need to know which role I'm playing first, that way I can find something appropriate.

Lastly, my favorite anime is, most probably, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. I'm a sucker for Gainax. It's kind of a problem...

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

@LostRiver || Sorry I didn't reply yesterday. D: And sorry if I was holding you up on your CS. I was doing homework that I should of got done the day before. xD

I think that should be fine. You can base your character off of a famous serial killer or something along those lines since assassins kinda are killers. It is hard to find historical figures that were assassins and whom killed a lot of people.... V-V It's so sad, we can't find anybody who killed a lot of people. xD. But yes, I'm sure that would be alright if you base your character off a famous person who killed the peoples.

@TheHarbingerOfCake || Sorry I stole your thunder in making a F/SN RP. xD[/b]. Yes, the Lancer class [s]unless you want the Berserker class after is reserved for you! As for your hero, It really depends on who you want to choose. But you're right, you should try to aim towards not making it like the heroes in the F/SN anime itself.

As for the Berserker class, I was kinda thinking they could keep their sanity in check and then let all hell break loose in battle...just like you said. (just to keep thing, you know, sane.) I don't want anything too crazy, either. ^^ I hope that answers your question...

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

Funny, I had actually joined this site because I wanted to make a Fate/Stay Night RP, and you got ahead of me! Your idea is more original and better executed than what I had planned, so in light of this, I think I’d much rather join yours.

I'd like to reserve Lancer, though I'm still a bit split on what the character's true identity will be. So far, I've been contemplating Saint George and Lugh, since they both seem to fit well into the Heroic Spirit notion. Lugh is kinda more of the safe choice since just having a glimpse of his wiki page gives you the impression that the sheet is writing itself, but I’ll probably go with the former since Lugh is just too similar to F/ST and F/Z’s Lancers he's more frequently depicted as a god, not a hero :/. I was also wondering how the Berserker class will operate, since I’m failing to see how they could adapt to modern society… or any society, for that matter. I mean, do they retain sanity until they go into battle or when they use certain skills? Depending on the answer, I might go for Berserker instead, but for now I’d rather have Lancer.

My favorite anime is constantly changing; I recently came across Eureka Seven after a long time and I remembered why I liked it so much, so I guess that’s my current favorite. Holand Novak was the most interesting character in my opinon.

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

Hey there! First off, I'd like to say that I'm actually more drawn to RPs with longer intros. I mean not like intros that are ten pages long, but I enjoy when it's clear that the GM put thought into the intro. As for Kyo... you're not alone in that. He's one of the only reasons that I actually started the show and then I ended up loving the series anyway and he just added to the love.

Secondly, I'm working on my CS right now and I have a question that I don't really know how to word, so I'm just gonna try it out. So, when I was thinking about doing the Assassins class, I was thinking that naturally, I would make my character based off a historical assassin (Judith, Brutus, Charlotte Corday, John Wilkes Booth, etc.). But I thought about it and I realized that everyone that I chose only killed one person. Like they were all imprisoned/killed afterward. I know that the characters are only based off of the historical figure and that they aren't the historical figure to a T, but I was just wondering if I could maybe do a historical figure that just generally.... killed a lot of people. XD Hahaha! That sounds so weird. But I mean like could I maybe do a famous pirate or like a serial killer? I don't know if that makes sense.... But anyway... If it has to be a legitimate historical assassin, then I still have a few possible ideas. T'was just a thought. ^-^

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

@aarondalea || Okay, that's fine. :) It's really up to you which hero you choose. Minamoto is cool anyways.

And of course! You can use Ulquiorra for your FC. :D Just to make sure, when entering your characters name (not on the CS, where you actually enter your characters name. The one you can't change. xD) Please enter your characters false name/human identification instead of your hero's name. Just to remind you. ;)

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

Hahaha well, I'm probably going to go with Minamoto no Tametomo since...well...I can't really think of a great FC for a man such as Einar Thambarskelfir :\ I was thinking Vincent Nightray or Rajak Kertia but they both don't really fit the character that Einar seemed to be...

Edit: Would it probable for me to use Ulquiorra as my FC?

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

@aarondalea || Well, from what I see on both of their Wiki pages, Minamoto no Tametomo seems like a badass archer I mean, it says on the wiki page that he sunk an entire ship with one arrow. That's pretty cool. :O but I also see that Einar Thambarskelfir has more information and backstory rather then Minamoto no Tametomo. It all really depends on how much information you want of the person. They both seem like pretty awesome archers though. :D

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

Ah, yes. For my historical character I am currently stuck between Einar Thambarskelfir and Minamoto no Tametomo :\ Either a man not very well known for his superb archery skills but a very important historical figure who pretty much leads a country...or a man known ESPECIALLY well for his great archery skills but, well, spent of his life in disgrace :\

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

@aarondalea || Oh my gosh! I love Summer Wars! ^_^ It was such a good movie. The Archer Class is reserved for you. Just one question though. Which historical figure are you planning on basing your character off of? If you haven't yet decided, that's alright too. Just wonderin'. ^^;

@LostRiver || Thank you for the wonderful compliments! ヽ(‘ ∇‘ )ノ I was actually kinda worried that the introduction was so long and people would click on the RP, look at it, and run away. D: But I see everyone so far has some knowledge of the Fate series so I hope there is no trouble...

And Fruits Basket was my very first anime I ever watched! It's sooo goooooddd. (。☉౪ ⊙。) I pretended that Kyo was my imaginary boyfriend.

Anyway, pardon my babbling, The Assassin Class is reserved for you!

@TheHuntress || Thank you for the praises. \(^ω^\) The Rider Class is reserved for you, my dear!

I don't think I've ever seen that anime but by the looks of the character, it looks pretty good. :3 Them eyes are beautiful :O


@Everyone || Thank you everybody for showing so much interest! Makes me feel special *tear* (;*△*;). Just a reminder, WIPS for your CS must be sent in by the next 48 hours (2 days, right?) and you CS must be complete by the next three days following that.

I'll probably have my own character. Just to share, I will be using Asuna Yuuki from SAO for my FC. ^^ So you could probably look off my CS if you become confused with yours or you could ask me...

Also, for the weapons/skills/powers on the CS; I will be making another thread to just put down every characters weapon and powers so no one else makes a weapon identical to theirs and have the same powers (Of course, not one person can just have a sword. There can be multiple swords but each one has to be unique in there own way :3)

As for the powers, each person can have up to four. Three of them being ones your character usually uses in battle and the fourth being the more extreme and rare one. But please make sure to make your powers realistic based on your class level. As I said, I will be including that in the weapons/skills/powers thread. :D

If there are any questions, I will gladly answer them. ^^;

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

Hi there, Kokia. I must praise you on this wonderful looking roleplay. >o< It does look really lovely to be honest, and I couldn't resist.

For me, I'm wondering if it'll be alright for me to reserve the Rider Class. The historical figure I'm still contemplating on. It'll either be Isabel de Montfort or Alexander the Great. Leaning more toward Alexander at the moment...

Okay, I have watched a lot of animes... And by far, my favorite anime is Kara no Kyoukai. Favorite character from the series would be the main character, Shiki Ryougi.

God who doesn't love her eyes...

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

\(*o*)/ This. Looks. WONDERFUL! I also remember watching Fate/Stay Night a while back and I loved it. I thought the concept was very cool and I think that this is a great RP! Anyway, I was wondering if I could reserve the Assassin class. I'm thinking that the historical figure she'd be based off would be Charlotte Corday or Judith of Bethulia (the only page I could find on her was the Wiki page from the movie... >->). But yeah... I'm leaning more toward Corday.

Also, like Aaron, I don't really get the time to watch much anime (much to my dismay), but I've always loved Kyo from Fruits Basket... As a too-cool-for school middle schooler, I absolutely loved him when I started watching the series.

Image
Much better as a cat if you ask me.

Re: The Modern Times Confrontation

Hey Kokia, would it be okay if I reserve the archer position?
Also, bravo for creating a fate/stay night RP! I still remember watching that anime a few years ago (how long has it been?!) and absolutely loved it-now I feel as if I should go re-watch the whole thing all over again hahaha (but I have no time ._.)
Anyways, since I don't watch much anime, I can't really say I have a favorite anime character- but I DO follow quite a few anime movies, so here, out of a lot of pains, I chose Summer Wars for some reason (I don't know why, since it was between Summer Wars and The Wolf's Children- but, well, the two are great, so)
