A War for the Modern Ages (Fate/Stay Night Inspired Anime Game)
« on: November 08, 2017, 11:54:04 AM »

Unlike the stories of books and movies, the existence of magicks, of all kinds, has always existed. Unknown to those who believe not, families have been tangled within the roots of magicks since the earliest days of speaking and writing, with the likes of Kings and Monarchs holding the greatest sources, while the masses had their on ability to rely on, along with the materials they had available. Centuries over centuries, magicks have been used for every day life, but then came a time, a day in age where selfish individuals began to use their power for their own needs. With the power hungry individuals of Crown, who had wealth and power at their side, and the liberating heroism that shrouded over the resistance of Chalice, their war began. Power, wealth, status, it all began to crumble under the year-long wars that raged, and in that instance, an idea struck within the confines of both opposing sides. By gathering items of deceased soldiers, of healers, of magic users, they could be brought back. To fuel a never-ending war, both sides of the fight began to bring back the dead, of heroic warriors and malicious villains to fuel the fire of war.


Death and famine plagued all lands, with the population dropping with every day, with lives lost and families being torn apart from the onslaught of murder and glory. The war for power could no longer last, and with a final push in the 1700s against the resistance, Crown had fallen, retreating to the shadows to admit defeat. With Crown retreating, Chalice was able to take the upper hand and rid lands of remaining forces, allowing the group to bring peace wherever they could. However, the bloodshed and tears, it couldn't be painted in the history books, no matter how gruesome and foul. As a sentence for such loss of life, and to restore whatever peace they could befit onto the world, the most skilled and experienced mages created a spell of known as "Afterthought"; the effects would remove the war, and all those who had died, from the minds of every human, every non-magic user. In exchange, the magic users who had participated in the world would be forced to remember the atrocities of their time, for as long as they lived, and when the time came that the spell would fade, when the war began once more.

With this spell in hand, the magic users, and the allies that they had summoned, continued to work together, behind closed doors, to ensure the war not continue. However as time passed, numbers began to dwindle on both sides, and with no true steps towards re-igniting the war, the sides have been at a stand still, with the summoned being called back to the beyond, and the war ever waiting to continue...

Now I need modern day Japan, the stirrings of magicks are once again in the air, but not of the common folk.

No...it’s the war; it calls back, for a victory to finally be won.

--------------

This game would be a Freeform Modern/Fantasy type setting, with elements of magic and sorcery added into the mix.

Since I am basing this off of the Fate anime series, the RP will include elements of the show. Such as an example, each player will be allowed to call forth their own hero to partner with them to help either fight, or help instigate, the war.

For this to work however, and to make sure everyone is able to participate and have a partner, each player shall make both a Summoner, and a Partner. Doing this doesn't necessarily mean that you will use both, but it's just a pre-caution so other may have a chance to claim someone for their character to partner up with.

Summoning:

How this will work is a Magic User can summon any type of hero, or villain, if they have the right incantation, and the item of said individual. If you wish to summon someone like King Arthur, then you would need to have some piece of him, or something that would mention him; anything from a piece of armor, to a book, or scroll. Vice versa with any sort of fairy-tale being, and the like. You must have some of person that you wish to summon as a partner, or your summoning would end up with someone random.

No one would be limited to having only heroes on one side, and villains on the other however. You could have heroes fighting to help Crown, while villains could be working in the shadow to help the resistance of Chalice. It all depends on what you come up with, and what you will think make the story more interesting.

Once summoned, the Magic user, and the summoned individual, will form a contract, that no matter what, they will fight, and work together, until either of them perish from the world from any means.

Summoners:

Summoners are the individuals that summon their partners to help aid in the war, yet they cannot simply be any normal person. They have to have some amount of magic potential, no matter how large or small. From experienced Wizards from generations of history, to a first time user that's trying to get their feet wet, only people with magic potential can summon, and of course, use magic to help aid in the fight.

As well, since this is in the modern age, these individuals can be anyone; a classmate, a lawyer, a wealthy individual within the corporate world; it all depends on what you come up with as a player.

Crown and Chalice:

These are the two sides that have been fighting the war for centuries.

Crown: The malicious side of war that crave power, wealth, status, and whatever their selfish hearts have desired. They want to end the war in their terms to become the strongest of all mages, and to rule the world with an iron fist.

Chalice: The benevolent side of the war, who wish to keep peace amongst the world and to let the world, and people living in it, prosper. They don't wish for power and greed to consume the world, and want to stop Crown before they succeed.

Each side of war is self-explanatory, and with this, you are able to choose a side you wish to fight on. However, you don't have to choose a side if you don't wish to; you could easily be a neutral party in the war, and have your character choose later on, or continue to participate, or not. However, a neutral role wouldn’t have much to do in regards to story, unless they help either side for the time being, or get roped into a side by force or by choice.

Chalice (Resistance Group):

For each side, the role of King or Queen will be taken by someone that will be the “leader”. They won’t be the main person of the game, but they will be the person that has all the info on the war so far, and what each side has been doing until now.

Queen (this position will be taken by my character, for story purposes)
Rook
Knight
Pawn
Bishop

Crown (Opposing Force):

King or Queen (Leader)
Rook
Knight
Pawn
Bishop

Rules:

More will be added.

1. If there is any issues regarding a particular player or a scene where people cannot seem to agree, PM me and I will handle it. I want everyone to have fun, and fights and disagreements can easily be solved, to an extent.

2. You will give each and every person that same respect that you wish to be treated as. No harsh words regarding people, or making fun of others for something that they said or did in game. If you aren’t going to respect others, then you can’t be in this game.

3. Since this is an anime game, I want people to use anime pics for their character! I’m a bit of a stickler for continuity, and since we are basing this off of an anime, I would like everyone to use an anime pic. RL pics in an anime game just don’t do well for me because it takes the whole experience out when you see an RL pic mixed together with anime pics. If you need help ask others, or myself even, but this is something that I have to stress because I can never really seem to get my head wrapped around it. If you ABSOLUTELY can’t find anything, then we can come to an agreement, but for now, please use anime pics.

4. Grammar, this is a big thing for me as well! Grammar is something that is super important to me because if it’s bad, it can take RPers out of an experience by seeing grammatical errors, or run on sentences that don’t seem to have an end. Please make sure to check your grammar in posts, and if you need help, feel free to ask myself or others.

5. No god-modding. I can’t stress this enough but if you have a plan for a character or wish to do a certain scene and you control another persons character without asking, it’s gonna be bad news. You have to ask permission from th either user before you can perform any such actions that would involve two characters for a plan. As well, no automatically landing hits or attacks, simply because you need to give the other user the chance to react to your post and what has happened in said post. It wouldn’t be fair if someone were to control your character in game right when you had a reaction planned, now would it?

Nah, you can have figures from history, like Hans Christian Anderson, or from stories if you would even like! I made a servant for a Fate game awhile back where she was Odette, from Swan Lake! Let your mind be creative in coming up with something!

All in all, I would be the one to accept or deny it, but even if I denied it, I would help people to fix it to make it acceptable. :D

Though, I’m curious, what were you thinking about in terms of a Summon?

I was wondering if there was a possibility of "original" summons. From what I can tell this takes place in an alternate history where a huge war happened, so I imagine the mages involved in said war would probably be considered appealing candidates to bring back as summons, despite the fact that they're not historical or famous figures in our world I imagine they would be historical figures in this setting.

That would be an interesting idea, however in this game magic is in secret, much like the Fate universe. Users that have used magic have kept in the shadows, fighting the war in secret. When the war ended, the “After-thought” took to affect, wiping the war from humans’ memories. By the time the war comes back up and resumes after someone begins summoning again, all of the individuals that had been apart of the war (humans wise that can’t use magic) have passed away, making it that individuals that are only versed in magic, families that passed down this knowledge of magic and the war, are the only ones that know of this incident.

Regardless, the figures that fought in the war (magic users wise), would only be known to magic users. It could be a possibility, but it would need to go by me first, and I would need a huge backstory to your character that you are using, PLUS a huge backstory as to who the servant is. I’ll think about it, but it may not be a possibility depending.

I won’t be sure until I get more interest and see exactly what I’m working with.

Alright, that's fair enough. And yeah I figured they'd only be known amongst the magic users themselves, but at the same time they don't really have to be known by normal humans since the magic users are the ones summoning them. I only bring it up because I had a few different ideas for summons but I didn't want to try to shoe horn them onto a well known figure just for the sake of it if I couldn't find one that fit right.

Don't get me started on Grand Order. I have an account with lots of cool stuff on it I can't use since: 1) My phone can't run it. 2) I can't use an emulator to play it on my PC anymore.

Curse you developers, let me give you money :P

I just started paying actually! No 5 star servant yet, but I can dream. ;A;

Thank you for the (tentative) interest! I was just about to post on here anyways, but I’m gonna be having this recruitment thread up for the remainder of the weekend to see if any other brave souls would like to join, before I get all of my details together and my thoughts regarding the game plot, before I set things in motion and make character sheets and such, as well as the rules set!

I hope to get one some day, but I know rates are terrible. Plus I’m picky when it comes to what Servants I want to roll for, and since I haven’t been following the NA server, I don’t know which Servants have been in the limited box. I really want a Prototype Saber, as well as the Phantom of the Opera, but I don’t even know if they’ve been introduced in the game yet in the U.S. 0-0

Yeah he’s a bit OP...

Shame we won’t have him in game though.

But thank you so much for being in the game! I can’t wait to see what servant you choose!

I would say, just to be safe, yes. For the beginning it will be the original classes; Lancer, Saber, Archer, Caster, Assassin, etc.

I may think about, but for now, it’s gonna be the original.

Oh and yeah, Okita does have her tuberculosis in FGO.

@Tokyo: So no Ruler/Avenger classes? Just making sure - And if we were to say, make a berserker, would we be stuck with random growls and screams for communication, or could it be assumed we're like Vlad and other 'new' berserkers like Kiyohime who can hold conversations? I would imagine if Berserkers are too crazed they'd not have people clamoring to play them.

Yes, Berserkers would be able to speak conversation.

Yeah, no Ruler or Avenger. For the “Ruler”, like Fate, we will have someone be residing over the war, and watching over it. Much like the Mage’s Accosiation with having some on from the Church watch over the war, we’ll have a character be in that role. That being said, someone would have to take that role, and if they wanted, could be a master just like previous Fate anime and games as well.

Okay. Sorry for prodding with a dozen questions, just trying to help narrow stuff down for what I think could be fun to play!
