    72 KB HOLY GRAIL WAR QUEST: SEATTLE EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 05/01/12(Tue)15:34 No.18936856  
    (( PAST THREADS: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Holy%20Grail%20War%20Quest ))


    ((IRC is #HGWseattle at Rizon. Please do not create discussion threads for this quest.))
    Today is the day.

    Well, every day is 'the day' now, that's the nature of the War. But now things are heating up - I know of most of the Masters, and one of the other Servants. The Chief of Police is the Master of Jack the Ripper, Assassin. I've called the other Masters you know, a biker, a child, and an Einzbern homunculus, to tell them he is planning a press conference. My agents have mapped the building ahead of time, but magical wards prevented them from entering the actual conference room.

    The press conference is at noon - six hours from now. Agents have confirmed that the local bike gang is gathering in a nearby pub, along with Rider's (you think it's Rider) Master.

    Archer, in spirit form beside me, seems pleased. As am I. Things are going according to plan. I can either sit here in my boat and wait for the outcome of the press conference, continue to seek out the home of the Master (His presumed workshop) and lay traps, or... Well, anything. Few actions on my behalf could jeopardize the plan at this stage.

    Brofist Archer.

    Seek out the home of the Master, we know he's going to be out and if we drop a full power trap on his porch he'll already be drained after people have tried to kill him, if he lives, and finish him off that way.
    >> EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 05/01/12(Tue)16:14 No.18937184
    I call one of my agents and retrieve the address. Before leaving, I make sure to trap the boat with temporary runes of unluck. Docking the ship, we head towards his residence - a small house on the outskirts of the city. It doesn't take long, and I load my pistol as we approach.

    [There's no way to know what's waiting for us there - what the Master has set up.] Odysseus states. [We must remain as careful as we can. We know he works with barriers, but not the age of his Family or the quality of his crest.]

    [We must assume he has one instance of Jack in his home.] I reply. The car stops, [Any remaining traps or suchlike will be nothing in the face of a threat like that. Archer, materialize.]

    "Yes." comes Archer's voice behind me. He is reassuring. I examine the front porch from a distance. The place is not marked, nor is it emitting energies like my own traps would. A car sits in the driveway, but it's not the Master's, as far as I can tell.

    What do I do from here?
    >> Anonymous 05/01/12(Tue)16:20 No.18937234
    Check for barriers by throwing a rock or something in the house's general direction.

    This might not be his actual Atelier but it could be obfuscated somehow. Do a few magic tests to see if it's there, maybe send a small puff of bad luck towards the house and see what pops up.

    Ask Archer to cover us as we investigate the car, if he has guests of some kind we should find out what we can about them, we'll break into it and see what documents and identification we can find.

    Other than that, don't let the low participation and the beginning discourage you,it's still pretty early, after all.

    We wait until the press conference, if we storm his house he will be alerted probably and everything goes to hell. I say we should enter his house WHILE the press conference-setup is in full motion.
    I don't really think that the master would be stupid enough to not expect that someone could find out where he lives, so we should sent our familiar in to check for booby traps if we decide to go in. Also Archer should stay at our side the whole time.

    Also Kids, time for a quiz!
    Who knows which Servant & Master we can completly ignore?
    >> Anonymous 05/01/12(Tue)16:36 No.18937373
    We don't know which Master yet. You can usually ignore Lancer, he gets fucked over given fate tradition, but given Big O's luck of F that sort of thing might go to us and Lancer has decent luck this time. Given that we don't know exactly who Rider, Saber, Lancer and Berserker are we're operating on a deficit of information.

    It'd be good to know which Master's have which servant.

    Caster is going to be nastier business this time around than usual, we've got fucking King Solomon and Archer does not have the skillset to take him out. We're going to have to want to point other people at him.

    >Wait until the press conference

    It should be happening any minute now.

    >Send in familiar
    Don't have another - the only one I have is you, and you're sort of stuck here with me.

    >Check for barriers
    I lob a pebble over the steps up to the porch. Nothing. I frown, nodding at Archer. Mortal magic shouldn't hurt him, and I move to the car. It seems fairly normal. There's faint magical residue on the back seat, but other than that, nothing. I'm frowning as I turn to the house and see someone move in the windows of the second floor.

    Shit! I never considered he'd have a family...

    "Archer, Are there wards?"

    "No. At least, none that react to me."

    And then the front door slams open, a teenager holding a shotgun and facing down Archer.
    "Who are you and what do you want with Dad." he asks, finger on the trigger as he clicks off the safety.

    Shit, shit, shit!
    >> Anonymous 05/01/12(Tue)16:45 No.18937462
    I'm assuming we know the Chief's first name.

    Mentally get Archer to say that "*name*, asked us to keep you safe, the streets aren't safe and given what's been going on lately with his job he's worried that people are going to try to use you to get to him. Come with us, we're taking you to a more secure location."

    Convince her to come with us. We'll wheedle information out of her, see if she knows her father's a Mage, involved in the HGW and what she knows about his plans, his crest and the age of his family. That and we get leverage on him.

    Let's make it clear, master: You suck at being a mage.
    I mean.. the other masters probably have a shitload of Familiars, like.. Doves and Ravens or Rats or whatever to spy on us.

    >"Who are you and what do you want with Dad." he asks, finger on the trigger as he clicks off the safety.

    Welp. Okay. Can we use our mage to shiel us from a shotgunshot? If not, use Big O as Shield, Servants can only get hurt by magical or conceptual weapons. Than shot the Kid, but try not to kill him if possible.
    Anyway, shot first, ask questions later. Stupid brat.
    >> Anonymous 05/01/12(Tue)17:04 No.18937676
    Big O has tongue of cunning, unless he has direct evidence against it we can convince him of almost anything. We could tell him that we're his uncle and aunt and he'd believe us. With something like that talking first makes sense, it's harder to get proper answers out of someone with a bullet in them and it really keeps them from trusting and confiding in us.

    All we have is bad luck inducing magic if I recall correctly. We can probably use that to jam the gun, or break the firing mechanism or something though.
    >> Anonymous 05/01/12(Tue)17:11 No.18937762
    Ouh, I like that.

    I'm aware of that, but people pointing firearms at me make me grumpy. I'm sorry, but I've played enough Shadowrun to know how badly usually things turn out when someone points a gun at you.
    Also: Shooting first then asking questions is kind of a golden rule. It sure as hell worked well for Kiritsugu..

    >Caster is going to be nastier business this time around than usual, we've got fucking King Solomon and Archer does not have the skillset to take him out. We're going to have to want to point other people at him.

    Ah, could you give me a quick rundown of his myth? I can't really recall who he was or what he did.
    >> EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 05/01/12(Tue)17:13 No.18937775
    [I got it.]

    "Woah, put that down." Archer says gently. "Chief asked us to keep an eye on you. Let us in, we need to ask you a few questions. To keep you safe." There's a few tense seconds, then the teenager lowers the shotgun, relaxing.
    "Alright. You have a name?"
    "Just another officer." he says, "And my partner." he gestures to me. "You don't need to concern yourself with our names."
    "Alright, sir. Please come in."

    Pleased I hid my command spells with white gloves, we step in. He closes the door, locks it, then sets down the shotgun. "You guys Black Cats?" he asks. Archer nods and the boy nods, slapping the side of the wall. Purple lines shoot from the point of impact, lacing through the house. There;s a sound like armor strapping into place and he straightens up. "Good. Then you know what Father is up to." he says. "We should add more fuel to the Crucible before we can talk. Come on." he gestures for us to follow, into the basement.

    The smell of blood assaults my senses as we enter the basement. A huge cauldron sits in the center of the room, purple lines emenating from it. My magical sense lets me feel that energy is constantly being drawn from it. That explains the power of the shield earlier - he's created a well of power to draw from instantly, using the blood of his son (who seems to be normal) and other mortals. He cuts his palm and holds it over the cauldron, and the lines instantly brighten. Soon, he presses gauze to it, wrapping it tightly. Then he looks to us expectantly.

    Not good - if we throw our blood in there, it might be charged enough to allow him to survive the attacks.

    You feel anger from Archer, but he maintains his pokerface.
    >> Anonymous 05/01/12(Tue)17:20 No.18937875
    This means we have a direct magical line straight to the Chief. He draws magic from it to protect himself. Cut our hand, have Archer distract him for a few moments, infuse the cauldron with all of the bad luck we can, it ought to flow straight to the Chief, fake putting blood in and then bandage up our hand to make it look like we did so.

    For Archer he can probably come up with a damn good lie for not putting his blood in, this kid isn't magical so he can probably string various magic related words together to bullshit himself out of it.

    We could try draining the magical energy, that should leave the chief relatively defenseless.

    I still think we should shoot the kid and burn down the house.
    Just to make a point.
    I mean.. that guy found is, it was probably his goon who tried to shoot us when we fleed and burned down our mansion and it's the Grail War anyway. What we know is that the Policeman-Master is perfectly willing to get his son and his fellow policemen involved.
    We can't be blamed if something happens to them and if you think about it: There are far more people involved in this than we would like.

    I say try to find out the names of the "Black Cats" that are involved, then kill the brat, destroy the device and burn the house. If the Police-Chief survives the assault our Allies prepared for him this should shake him up a bit. If not, also good, we eliminated people who knew about the HGW and we were involved and hey, if even the church and the Association says its okay to silence witnesses, why should we bother?

    Well, there's a fair few myths about how he was a wise king.
    What is probably MOST prominent for the grail war however is the fact that he's the root of all Deamonology.

    [Something troubling you, Archer?]

    [He's involving his family. Hurting them for his ambition.]

    [Don't allow your emotions to get involved here.]


    "Very well." I say.

    "I can't." Archer says. "Blood thinners."

    The boy gives him a stare as I smile, infusing bad luck into my blood as I open my palm. The cauldron lights up, and the lines brighten. Excellent. Working quickly, I seal the wound as Archer finishes his explanation. "And that's why I shouldn't give him any. Bad luck." he finishes. "Heck, it might have rubbed off on my partner here."

    The boy looks a little worried, and my phone rings.
    "Excuse me." I say, walking to the living room.

    "Milady. The assault has begun." he says. "We can confirm the biker's Servant is Rider - Though he has yet to use any Noble Phantasms. Barriers have halted attack for the moment."

    "I see." I respond. "Is there anything further to report?"

    "Yes - the Servant has drawn a sword - it's wreathed in fire. He is striking at the barrier - He's through. He's approaching the Master. Ah. There's the Servant. This might take some time."

    "Please call only when the target has been eliminated."

    "Yes ma'am." he replies. There is swearing downstairs, and I rush down.

    Archer is holding a knife away from the boy, who is clearly distressed - the room is dim, as are the magical lines.

    "Leave him. We have more important places to be. Take the lead, and secure the path back."

    He nods, slamming the knife high into the wall and running past me. The boy reaches for it in vain. "You want to help your father, don't you?" I ask, and the boy nods. I smile, then grasp his hands. "Here." kicking his feet from under him, I throw him into the cauldron. There's a brief scream as he is converted into pure Prana, which I then tap and convert to unluck. He failed to make his mana pool secure - so I am able to mess with it this way. I make certain all reactions are self-sustaining, and walk out of the house. Anyone who draws from that is in for a swift death.

    "It's handled?"

    "It's handled." I reply. My phone rings.


    "Target has died."

    "... That's an odd phrasing."

    "Well, Ma'am, the Servant rushed him. He erected several small barriers in an attempt to escape. However, said barriers were destroyed with little effort as the Servant advanced. Then he dropped dead."

    "Without being attacked?"

    "Yes. I also report a minor mental assault when the blade is wielded. Most individuals fled the scene." the agent states. "Jack has escaped, but we are not aware of how long he has independant action. He may attempt to sustain himself with mortals."

    "That won't be an issue."

    "Ma'am." he replies, and I feel myself pushed against the seat slightly as he picks up speed.

    "Should have known..." I mutter, opening the sunroof. Archer stands through it, aiming his bow - but a gunshot resounds and he flinches. A tiny cut appears on his shoulder. Both of us stare at it briefly.

    They may be not the best servants because most other servants have Magic Resistance, but they sure know how to fuck up the Holy Grail War beyond Redemption.

    He wasn't really famed as a rider though. If they DID force a Rider class summoning of him, then it's probably to our advantage, it's not a good match for him: he's usually a Saber class servant.

    "Return fire, Archer. From inside the car?" I ask, having taken cover between the back of the front seat and the back seat. Thank god the car is bullet-proofed.
    Odysseus manages to summon the bow after both windows in the back are rolled down and fires - One, two, three of the bikers taken out - but a chain whips out, knocking the fifth from the air.

    More join in the chase from side roads.
    "Shit! Where are they coming from!?"

    And then Rider appears, riding his own bike. I remember him from the restaraunt, but now he's decked in actual armor, holding a flaming sword while another sits sheathed on his hip. He leads the pack, now, flaming blade held forth.

    "A knight riding a motorcycle in full armor." I bluntly state.

    While my agent pulls us into a hard, drifting turn, the gang follows, but only about two thirds make it.
    "Please remain in cover, my lady." he says, completely calm.

    "Go for the wheels." I hiss, preparing my crest. "I will amplify the strike." I touch my fingers to the crest, whispering the germanic phrase. Normally I don't go this far, but I'm not in a mood to fuck around. I had to kill a teenager today. It didn't leave me in a good mood. I let the Unluck drop through the car to the asphalt below as the arrows fly, slamming into the wheels of the goons - Rider's bike is struck last, and he hurtles from his seat while the gang erupts into fire. About half of them avoid the pileup.

    Rider soars through the air, and he screams something to the air - I don't hear it, but a white horse appears beneath him, shining as he lands in the seat.

    "My lady, I advise we head to the water and escape."

    And then the knight draws his other sword, a shining white blade. He shouts and spurs the horse forth.

    Meanwhile, the car shakes with the sound of exploding tires.

    "Do not fear, we have all-wheel drive, my lady, and they only got the back."
    There's mayeb three bikers left. None of them are masters.

    Pfff! Like I give a fuck!

    Head to the Docks like Archer suggested, he should keep up with his Barrage of Arrows on Rider and his Horse. That should probably give us some leeway until we reach water.

    "Agent Charmicheal, it's been a pleasure."


    "So please drive off the peir - the one the boat is on. Archer, use one arrow to cut the mooring line as we approach. I will finish the last of the bikers."

    [Very well.]

    Again, I pull more prana into my crest, muttering the activation keyword. I scatter it out, slamming it into the last three bikers as we approach the pier. I open the door slightly as the arrow sails down ahead of us, slicing through the mooring rope as the bikers slam into a street light, a fire hydrant, and a pig statue. As soon as we hit wood, I bail.

    [Spirit form! Get on the boat and drive away!]

    I roll onto the deck painfully as we turn and begin to tug away. Rider approaches the end of the pier. And then the horse leaps - landing on the deck as I scramble to safety and arrows rain around the knight. He hacks them out of the air while the boat finally gains speed and Archer stands between me and Rider.

    Charmichael is already swimming away.

    Rider and Archer circle one another while I hide, watching.

    "Someone's not very grateful. We practically handed you Assassin's Master." Archer says.

    "Not my concern. My lord's orders are orders. He sends his thanks - and his regret that this is necessary."

    "Necessary? We could ally." Archer says.

    "And delay the inevitable fight. Only one man can claim the grail."

    "Or woman." Archer corrects. "Still, there are strong servants in this War. If anyone wants to win, teamwork will be necessary."

    They continue to circle.
    And then Rider sheathes his weapons.
    "I will not do battle. You seem hesitant and I am not in the best terrain either. Bring me to shore and you have my word no harm shall come to you until next we meet, at least from me or my master."

    "Are you capable of making such a vow?" Archer asks.

    "I am. I have just asked."

    "Good. Bring me around, then." he says, dismounting from the horse and returning to his normal snappy outfit.

    Fuck his vow and fuck his master. We just massacred his Master's Friends and he's calling it a day? No, fuck him. Stab the shit out of him. We'll still have to confront him and his master so let's do it at our terms.
    Also, it's pretty sure that he underestimates us and Big O. He probably thinks that we're just some Archer and his Servant he got cornered, while we in fact are in Big O's strong ground. Kill him here and now.

    Special case. Unused (read: owner died before they were used) Command Spells go to the Church's representative. In Fate/Zero, Kotomine's dad had tons of Command Spells from previous HGWs.

Rider is stronger, and armored. His sword - not a Noble Phantasm in truth - skitters against the armor Rider wears as he cries out in betrayal.

    Sheesh, keep your panties on.

    Look, first off. Bikerguy was the one who backstabbed us first. We got him Police-Chief-Master and he probably wouldn't even be able to do Shit if we hadn't sabotaged his Shield-Device.
    He sent his Bikers AND his Servant after us when we just wanted to go home and recuperate.

    If he calls us out a backstabbing he must be either a retard or pretty ballsy gus in the first place. And even then we can just tell him that we wanted to get back at him, after HE attacked us unprovoked.

    >Time to call Lancer.

    I sigh, rubbing my eyebrows as I dial.

    ...And Lancer picks up.
    "So it seems your plan went off without a hitch. The chief of police has died."

    "That it did." I reply. "Well, not quite. Rider soon came after me."


    "Yes. I set no trap for him - I was not even aiming to assault him after he was weakened. I was chased through town by him."

    "...I see. But what is the point of this call?"

    "I'd like to propose an Alliance."

    "...One condition. Tell me everything you know, and we are clear. Meet me in the church at midnight if you're still interested."

    Then Lancer hangs up.
    Hm. That was... pretty cheap. But then, I have to get to the church. Rider's out there, somewhere.

    In fairness, our cease-fire expired last night, so there's technically no reason for him NOT to attack us. Especially since we weren't expecting it.

    The "agreement" we made with Rider was different. Yes, technically we didn't agree to it, but that's just semantics. A tacit agreement is still an agreement. I'm not saying what we did was wrong per se, just that there were better ways to handle the situation.

    There is only one VN. Fate/Hollow Atraxia still isn't translated fully.
    But you could:
    - Watch Fate/Zero
    - Watch the UBW-Movie and the Fate-Animu, though especially the last one is a bit jarring.
    - Read the F/Z light novel, the Animu is based on it after all and I remember that it was mostly translated.
    - Get yourself a PSP-Emulator and play Fate/Extra
    - Watch Carnival Phantasm
    - Check if the first Fate/Apocrypha-Novel is translated already.

    Scratch this. We should bro it up with Lancer. If we can establish a true relationship with 0 backstabbing it will do us good. We could even make a geas that says that if we are the last two left, only our Servants will fight for the Grail one on one.

    I say we chill until midnight and then see what's up. Before we go there we should send out our Guys first to check if the air is clear. There is a big chance that this could be an ambush.

    You can't establish a Team with zero backstabbing in the HGW. There can be only one winner after all.

    That's why I said we could establish a geas. We could word it so that if the two of us are left, we just make our Servants fight. The winner gets the Grail and the loser walks away.

    I say we play it like Kiritsugu and go after the Masters. Sure, it's underhanded, but it doesn't matter how cool and shiny your Servant is if you have an arrow through your head. And we've already taken out Police Boy the Shield-Focus Blood Mage, so ranged defenses around the other Masters' Workshops shouldn't be a huge problem, as long as we don't get too close and trip the wards.

    "Is public transit available?"

    "No." replies my Agent. "All public transit is halted until further noted due to 'terrorist activity'."

    "Shit." I hang up. "How good are you at jumping, Archer?"

    He smiles.

    Several minutes later I'm holding his neck tightly as he leaps between buildings, humming what is apparently a sailing song.

    "Why are you so upbeat!?"

    "Because you're scared shitless." he replies dryly. "We're almost there, relax."

    "I'll relax when you put me the hell down!"

    Finally, we drop in front of the cathedral, stepping inside. Lancer, dressed now in green and yellow finery, like a cross between a tunic and a robe, stands there. The boy waves, smiling.

    "So you came after all." Lancer says, one hand on her hip as she raises an eyebrow. "Was the trip hard?"

    "No. Scary. Not hard." I elbow Archer to stop his laughter. "So, the alliance?"

    "Information, first."

    If she wants our Servant's identity/info about our magic, again equivalent exchange, but no identity, or any sort of specifics about anything.

    Hey kiddo, Lancer, good to see you two. I love your outfit, you must tell me where you found it.

    So what exactly are you looking for in information. Let's see, the Police Chief was in charge of Assassin, Jack the Ripper, he was a nasty blood mage and is now dead, but Jack could still be wandering around.

    The Biker obviously has rider, two swords one was flaming the other was shining white, bitching horse, and can lead people. Something odd about the leading was that non-conceptual weapons used by his men were able to cause minor damage. Not sure exactly who it is as of yet though.

    Also I think he's down a command seal or two.

    I'm perfectly willing to spill everything I know on other masters and servants.

    I say we Greet them, not overly casual or friendly, in a businesslike-manner. Other than that we already exchanged pleasantries. We ask what kind of Information Lancer wants and that we will only disclose any if the Exchange is mutual.

    "Please, do. I will, also."

    I launch into an explanation of everything I've learned thus far. Finally, as I finish, Lancer nods.
    "I understand. I only have a small amount of information - Einzbern has Saber. As for Berserker, We have only seen him once, briefly. He appeared to dressed in robes that bore many an insignia - not runes, not seals. Something... else. He moved with energy I did not expect, and held no weapons, raving and ranting. As for Caster, We saw a man robed in gold - not yellow, shining gold - speaking to a crowned owl with long legs." she goes on.

    Berserker's Lovecraft, Lancer. Anyway, now that we've shared information, here is my proposal - we create a geas against any of the four of us harming another, until we are the only ones remaining. At that point, you and Archer will face each other in single combat to determine the victor of the Holy Grail War. Until then, we fight as a unit, and preferably live as a unit, as well. There is, after all, safety in numbers.

    Fine. Now I would propose the Alliance to them.
    But without the Geas Cu proposed. I somehow sense that this will bite is in the ass in near future.

    Also use the time to get to know the kid better and press as much intel out of him as we can. Where he came from, what his family is like, who teached him about magic all that stuff that could be somehow relevant. On the other hand, we're asked something answer in a nonchalant way, but at the same time, don't lie to him, but don't answer truthfully either.

    Also: We should get ourselves a gun again. Just in case.

    We are still assuming she is Lancer. She could be Saber for all we know. Rider has been confirmed as "The knight in shining armor".

    This chick is probably Saber. Odie's persuasion didn't work on her. Sabers have a high magic resistance.

    "That sounds alright." I say. "So, David... How'd you end up in the war?"

    "I wanted a mommy so bad, that, that I just got one!" he says with a huge smile. "Sort of. She says she's gonna help me get one! I just gotta win!"

    Something about him makes me smile.

    "I'm sure he was abandoned, or something." Lancer says quietly, ruffling his hair. "We don't live far off. Come on."

    [She's trustworthy.]
    [How do you know?]
    [I know. Call it inuition.]

    The home, which is almost across the street, is a large apartment. The magical wards and suchlike I've come to expect are absent, and Lancer sighs. "Dinner, soon." she says, walking into the kitchen.

    Archer, this kid managed to summon a servant through wanting a mommy or he's lying like a rug, given his house doesn't have wards I'm inclined to think he got involved through sheer accident. He probably doesn't have all that much in the way of magic circuitry.

    I'm going to talk to the kid, see what I can learn about him and so on, help Lancer with dinner, learn what you can from her without being obvious, turn on your winning charm.

    Upon second glance, this place is rather upscale - until I notice that it looks... Abandoned? Some simple maintenance hasn't been performed. The doors are creaky, the windows leak.

    Maybe... a murder? Someone killed his parents?

    I shake my head and join Lancer in cooking. She's doing a bit of a feast - A cured ham, roasted apples (golden delicious), and a lot of other foods. I'm... not the best cook, but I try to help.

    Lancer tells me she's never really had much chance to cook in a kitchen much. She's much better at a campfire. She likes open fields and forests, and admits that this location is far from ideal. Still, she is happy to at least be able to fight.

    Archer joins in with some comments about the fish and seafood, rounding out the meal helpfully. We sit and eat well for the first time in a long time. Her cooking is excellent, and her mannerisms are elegant and...

    Well. There's that feeling again. I shake it away and focus on the delicious meal.

    Is there actually enough hot water for us each to take our own bath Lancer, I could join you if that would ensure we both get piping hot baths.

    This. Plus, being able to scope out Atlanta more personally might be interesting.

    Also, bath first. We've had a long, violence-filled day. We've relaxed over a good meal, why not top it off with a soothing bath?

    Well, alright, I'm not a lesbian, I'm bisexual. I think. Not that it matters. Especially not in this case. I mean, it's not like I like Lancer so suddenly. Not enough to do 'that' with. And really, having you guys in my head nadgering about this and that and this other thing and about how I'm supposed to be totally ruthless for a wish that I'm not even sure what I want from, And really it's not-

    "Are you alright?" Lancer asks, leaning close.

    "I'm fine. Are you sure we have enough hot water for both of us?" I ask, "The place is kinda old." oh god what am I sayi-

    God damnit, familiar, if-

    "Well, I suppose not. We should bathe together."

    I'm left speechless as she walks past me, taking my hand. I look back to Archer helplessly, who is munching on a biscuit and grinning as he waves me off.

    So help me god if you guys don't keep on the straight and narrow through this I will shut you the hell off until I'm in bed.

    "Could you help with these fastenings?" She asks, pointing to the center of her back.

    I also want o know more about our Master's personal history. While sharing this with Atlanta seems dumb, some of the best thinking goes on in the bath, IMO. Relax and ruminate. Plan our next move (and do that with regards to the Grail, NOT Atlanta)

    I guess you wouldn't know - your information is mostly parsed in text, if I remember correctly. I'm lanky. Thin. A lot of guys would flatter me by calling me 'slender', but I'm not. I'm skinny as hell. Pretty much flat. A lot of people say my face looks half-dead, emotionless and blank. My hair is kept short, straight, and it's platinum blonde. And I prefer suits and other masculine outfits.

    I sigh as I unbuckle the skirt, and Atalanta, er, Lancer lets it fall - And I shut the door, finally realizing it's been open this whole time.

    "So... Uhm." I shake my head and take another breath as she starts the bath water. "I've heard there's beautiful forests outside of the city. It's the evergreen state, after all. And... for someone unused to kitchens, you're a good cook."

    "It's the basics." she says, "You just have to understand how meat cooks, things like that. Temperatures. It's instinct, not skill." she elaborates as she slips off those high boots. "And... That's good news. I might be able to move camp there. I fight much, much better in a natural location."

    Aaand she's pulling down the zipper on the back of her top.
    "A-a-anyway. Have things been harsh for you, so far? Any hard fights?"

    "Not really. I prefer to watch and learn before I fight. But Saber scares me. You might not be able to sense it, but he's... strong."

    "Strong how?" I ask, finally deciding to kick off my shoes and socks, then my pants. Gotta stay calm... "And how strong?"

    "Have you ever shaken hands with someone who does a lot of manual labor? Noticed that strength just behind the skin? It's like that, except I can /feel/ it. It's... terrifying." And out they come as she pulls her top over her head, perky hand-
    >> 2/2 EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 05/02/12(Wed)00:59 No.18945178

    Mmf. Anyway.

    "Do you have any guesses as to who he is?"

    "He's too boistrous to be an arturian knight or one of Charlemagne's men." she comments. :are you planning on bathing in your clothes?" she asks, finally stepping out of her underwear, turning off the water.

    "Er." I manage, before she sighs and steps over.

    "So bashful." she mutters, undoing my top, "You had to realize it was all coming off, right?"

    "Well, I..."

    "Well, what?" she asks as she pushes my jacket from my shoulders, then my shirt. "Look, we're both girls here. You don't have to be embarrassed." she says, pushing down my panties at last, "Now, in!" she pushes me and I stumble, falling into the bath with a splash, sliding in beside me gracefully.

    Enjoy the bath, try not to be too envious of her.

    Perhaps this Saber's an Irish one, lots of those, fits with the blond hair which rules out a number of possibilities. Also his mana drain was much larger than everyone elses, the Einzberns probably grabbed a very legendary hero who they're pumping with prana. It's not going to be a pleasant fight when it comes down to it.

    Hard to say. We may, but that's a long shot. More likely she'll be more wary of us if we figured out who she is without even seeing her noble phantasm.

    And Eliza just calm down and enjoy the bath. If both you and Big O thinks it wise you may want to offer to help Lancer and the kid find a place that isn't so... abandoned. Ask what her hobbies are or if you want to be all business see which servant she thinks would be the best one to target next. You may want to try and convince her to help kill rider off first to get that debuff off of Archer's trump card.

    "An Irishman, you think?" I ask.

    "Possibly." she says. "But wherever he's from..."

    "Don't worry. Archer is strong." I find myself saying. "Things will be okay. Anywa-heee!" She started washing my back, gentle fingers and a soft sponge. "A-anyway! I think we should move to my own base. It's more mobile and safe. And there's an island I still need to check out." After all, only Assassin and his master knew of it. I might be able to go back. "I'm worried about Saber, too, but more pressing is Rider. He's too fast."

    "Fast? I can do fast." she says, pressing closer. Aigh, I can feel them. "What about Archer?"

    "He can hold his own, for the most part. I think if we travel separately we'd have better chances. He'd have to split his forces, and he's already wasted at least one command spell."

    "Are you sure?"

    "Not entirely. But... He just vanished on us. Mid-fight."

    "Going spirit midfight can leave you vulnerable, unless you have a skill for it." she says, frowning. "Or a command spell was used."

    "Exactly, and he traveled so fast to us!"

    "I wanted to show I trust you. And I hate cold baths. And you're beautiful." I add, instantly covering my mouth. "No, I mean, I, Uh, er - " She pushes a finger against my lips and laughs.

    "I understand. I have that effect on people." she says gently. "Don't worry about it. You're not half bad yourself."

    If his story is legit it isn't the first time a Master was chosen without even knowing what the fuck a servant even is. It happened with Shiro in Fate/Stay night and the serial killer in Fate/Zero. So long as you have a magic inheritance, even if you don't know how to use it, you can possibly become a master in the grail war. The servant you get will be the one that best suits your personality.

    "He probably forced the Grail to notice him, over all the other eligable contracts."

    I back away a little, daunted by her closeness. "I... Uhm."

    You can use the magic Eliza can, with a smaller extent. Normally Familiars are made to scry and spy and do menial labour. Like turning pages of those fuckhuge tomes that mages like so much.

    >Are the others right and Rider bugged out too quickly to figure out Prince of Lies?

    >Eliza's backstory

    Whoooo boy.

    First of all, yeah, she's still got her v-card at her age. Whoopty doo.

    She was raised as an heir to the Alexander family. The family does not follow Mage tradition, mainly in that it doesn't trust Big Ben at all. Further, they're a very young family, so while they are rich and powerful in mundane terms, they're weak as hellin the magic world. This left Eliza without many friends, and few chances for closeness with much of anyone. She descended into being an alcoholic shortly after she was told she'd be a part of the HGW. She doesn't know what she wants in life, or from the grail - why it chose her at all is a mystery to her.

    She synchs up well with Archer because both of them were, or are, lost. They are both somewhat conniving and have an easy time lying, and both prefer to go the easy way, but are decently strong the hard way.
