Fate/Counter Force


While it has Fate in the title I want this one to be more of a combination of Tsukihime and Fate. There is a whole lot more to the Nasuverse as a whole than just the fate side so I want to take advantage of it. Servants will be a part of the story but they are not the central players here. There is no Holy Grail War.

The Church's Burial Agency has had one of their sealing chambers ransacked under the cover of an earthquake and a powerful vampire, a Dead Apostle Ancestor has been unleashed upon the world once again. The church has given her the title Echidna, Mother of Monsters. This powerful vampire has been sealed for thousands of years and if left alone has the power to wipe out humanity. The burial agency is already on the case but due to the vampire's unique nature of being able to 'birth' offspring such as phantasmal beasts, they are having great difficulty in recapturing Echidna. Realizing they need more firepower the church has grudgingly reached out to the Mage's Association for assistance in their war.

Knowing that such a powerful being left on the loose could devastate the world, The Mage's Association has decided to lend their aid. Considering the threat is credible enough to bring about the end of humanity, the Mage's Association has realized that the counter force should come into play, but instead of just letting it work it's way naturally the Mage's Association has decided to try and tap into the Counter Force to control it themselves. Their hope is that they can limit the amount of damage and exposure a 'natural disaster' might cause by wielding the scalpel themselves.

The Mage Association intercepts the counter guardians with a ritual of their own and summons them as servants to do battle with the Dead Apostle Ancestor and her forces.

Basic Knowledge You Should Know
  • Playable characters are Mages, Church members, and Counter Guardians/Servants
  • While the Counter Guardians are contracted as servants as this is not a Grail War all servants regardless of class have independent action as a skill. Basically they can act independently.
  • Those given servants have the traditional command seals to help them control the counter guardians.
  • Only three servants are available as there is not enough magic to sustain any more than that.
  • Servants with a Divine spirit origin, such as gods [ex. Artemis] and half-gods [ex. Gilgamesh] are not summonable.
  • Don't worry if you are not too familiar with the Nasuverse as a whole, the thing's a jumbled mess anyway so just think of it as Fate but with Vampires.
  • This will be a PvE roleplay, though PvP could occur if desired among individuals but PvE will always take priority.
  • A Dead Apostle Ancestor is a powerful vampire that often has its own cult following. The 'servants' of such a vampire can be familiars, dead apostles[vampires], the dead, and in this particular case, magical beasts and phantasmal beasts.
  • While the church is great at handling the undead, because most of their equipment is better suited for holy warfare they are having trouble with the magical and phantasmal beast. As some phantasmals are simply too strong to be killed normally, servant's noble phantasms or powerful artifacts are often needed to finish the job.

I haven't read Tsukihime but I'll throw my hat in the ring. Are our masters, and servants strictly OC's or do we summon the actual heroes? If so what's the limit on them?

Just to clarify are you talking about making a character like Akiha who has Oni blood? It really kind of depends on what type of mixed-breed you're talking about. Also how dare you remind me of the days of the Black Keys...dark times indeed...

I haven't read Tsukihime but I'll throw my hat in the ring. Are our masters, and servants strictly OC's or do we summon the actual heroes? If so what's the limit on them?


Tsukihime is...eh I can kinda see why a lot of people consider it the black sheep of the family but the ideas and lore inherent in the actual story is interesting. Also Kara no Kyoukai too which is great but even further removed from Fate than Tsukihime is in my opinion. Anyway, while masters will be strictly OC, servants do not have to be, technically anyone in the Throne of Heroes can appear in any reality if summoned so even though this will be an AU universe all the servants you know can appear. If you go the OC route with a servant I will have to be rather picky with them though.

As for limits there are several. Since there is no Holy Grail, despite tapping into the counter force the available magic for these servants is limited, which in turn limits the available servant pool. No extra classes will be available, only the original seven classes. Otherworldly servants like Ilya and Ryogi[who technically isn't even a servant anyway] will not be summoned. Those with completely game breaking abilities like Gilgamesh with all the world's noble phantasms or Hercules with his nine lives are too powerful to summon. Servants that are literally Gods like Artemis and Ishtar cannot be summoned. Demi-servants/Pseudo Servants will not be summoned. Alter servants are not summonable.

Do I need to know literally anything about this to join?


Cool [totally historically accurate*cough cough*] summons fight along mages, church members in impractical garb with big pointy objects, to fight overpowered vampires and other beasties. Think that about covers it.

Ok there are some things you should know like what exactly a servant is but do yourself a favor and don't delve too much into the actual lore or you'll probably just confuse yourself.

Oh and apparently King Arthur was a woman. XD

@IceHeartAlright I'll just bring Leon along from my usual fate roleplays, and give him Mordred or someone. Is there an age range you wnat characters to be in? I may need to age him up if so. He's usually in his middle twenties, or teens.

Ah, I was considering doing a sort of Rougarou magus. A mixed blood descendant of one of the werewolf clans from France whose family is trying to recreate the Golden Werewolf. Their gist is essentially using Witchcraft to force an Inversion Impulse.

@vancexentan In general the age range would be 20+, unless there are some real special circumstances neither the mages or the church are going to send idiotic teenagers into battle, especially since masters aren't randomly chosen this time around.

@Black Keys I see so they are trying to find a way to control the inversion impulse in order to create their own weapon that they can control at will. Hmm well it could work, but as that character has monster blood that character certainly wouldn't be chosen as one of the masters as they would be too afraid of what could go wrong and certainly the Church wouldn't approve of that much power put together either. Of course I'd still have to approve it, but saying outright such a character will not be an eligible master.

Well I'll try to get a character sheet up tomorrow I hope, too tried tonight.

@IceHeart
It's less about making a weapon and more about trying to recreate the Golden Werewolf and bring the race to prosperity once again. That said, the family's prinary goals have changed in recent years to serving as healers in their communities. Witchcraft is still part of their crest and finding out a way to recreate the golden werewolf is still their ultimate goal, but their main focus is now more into the realm of spiritual healing. Essentially, they've become a bit of a mix between en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traiteur and en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rougarou . That said, I'd expect their relations with the Church to be... shaky at this time? They've grown to become good bois and girls who go to Sunday school, but they're still mixed bloods, so it'd be a strange interaction.

@IceHeartAlright thats fine I can keep Leon around his normal range then. The usual jest is that he is chosen because hes a capable fighter and mage and his dad, and grand father are well known mages.

Name: Leon Winchester

Age: 23

Appearance:


Brief Bio:

Born in a rural town in the Midwest of America he was the son of a well known magus duo whose families hail from Ireland, and Scotland. His parents were teachers, and instructors of magical arts and worked for the Mage Association's American branch. His parents had great hopes for him, and knew he would be a strong mage someday if they instructed him properly. Though his grand father (mother's side) disliked the idea of forcing on him his parents' highly disturbing fondness for exploring Magecraft he was none the less forced to agree that his parents had the right to raise their child as they saw fit.

Growing up around magi scholars would be both a boon, and a disadvantage for young Leon whom would grow up with some social issues. He would be so used to magic that his parents would have to put spells on him when he was around normal humans to temporarily prevent him from using magic even accidentally. He also knew better than to talk about magic to others and lacking very few other hobbies Leon would make very few friends with normal people. He would also need to work on both normal school curriculum alongside his Magi training that his parents put him through since he was able to comprehend basic level spells. Despite this his parents did indeed very much care for their child, and wanted him to reach his full potential so that one day he could become a strong magus.

He would continue to have very few friends into his teenage years where his father, and grand father would both personally start to teach him their own specialized magical forms. His father was a masterful wind mage, and his grand father knew water magics as well as anyone. He had shown an affinity for both early on in his life and he appreciated his father pushing and leaning on him more than his grand father otherwise he may have never discovered his limits and how to stay within them. He had high ambitions of one day perhaps running his own guild within the magical community, and one of his friends, Gabriel Mackindley, would prove to be a worthy rival as he pushed on Leon to keep himself on his toes. He cherished what few close friends he had, and was grateful for them. Within time he started to develop a certain reputation within his circle of magicians, and even some others as 'The Black Hand Magus' after beating many opponents in a dueling arena while wearing his signature black glove on his left hand. It was not anything he had expected and he only wore the glove because it was a gift from his grand mother whom was also a duelist in her time.

Before he really knew it he was growing into a young adult, and his skills with magic were becoming stronger with each fight as he figured out new ways to use them. Though he was worried he was going to hit his limit soon enough. He continued to work as an recreational mage learning from his father, and others until one day he was approached by the Mage Association. Due to his father's talents, and his grand father's reputation Leon himself was considered as a second possibility to his father who they approached first. His father rejected the call believing the church, and the MA would use him just like anyone else. His mother also rejected as she believed that the upcoming war was just another mage political struggle more than one that would settle the fate of the world. However believing the world needed assistance for whatever danger it would be facing.

His father encouraged him to refuse but Leon figured if he could help, even if it cost him a lot, he would take up the call. Leon was, and is still, no martyr, nor did he hold any heroic aspirations. He simply hoped he may be able to become stronger, and become more capable by taking on harder tasks. Of course he himself knew little of the events that had caused the Mage Association to come to him, and his father but the latter did not care for such matters but he wished his son good luck, and told him to come back alive.

Abilities:

Leon is an credited mage with knowledge of many magical arts but he himself specifically finding a niche with water, and wind mage. He is capable of manipulating the wind, and water around him to form projectiles, and concussive air blasts. He freezes things to make shields, or to act as bullets. Though not an especially powerful mage Leon is more credible a threat than most. His activities outside of the libraries of his father's teaching facilities, and his grand father's wisdom that was passed down to him have honed him into a experienced warrior. Leon is quick to form spells, and his simple approach lacks any real short comings. However the quantity, and quality of his magecraft is not up to par of older masters. Leon can be outdone by people who command true mastery, or incredible raw power.
