PostSubject: The Grail Games   Sun Jul 21, 2013 2:28 pm


The Story

Heaven's Feel

A ritual by which seven Servants, spirits of fallen heroes from the past, are summoned by seven Masters to fight for the legendary Holy Grail, an almighty wish-granting machine. The secrets of this divine mystery were long lost, even before the days of the Great Magi War. As the major magi factions of Clocktower, Atlas, the various components of the Sea of Estray, and the relatively new organizations as Ygddmillennia and the Eastern Magi Alliance finally had their hatred and grudges boil to the forefront, an all-out war for supremacy broke out that cost each group money, research, and lives to the point where the fiercely guarded secrets of magecraft were nearly revealed to the world. One magus, Alderic Dowth, was able to use his charisma and influence to forge an alliance between Sponheim Abbey and Clocktower. With this powerful alliance struck, Dowth was able to bring the other groups in the Sea of Estray, the Prague Association and the Thule Society, into the fold. Faced with this force, the new alliance was able to intimidate the other groups into an uneasy ceasefire.

Seizing upon this opportunity, Dowth was able to propose an event to celebrate the end of the magi war. A competition to give the various groups a chance to prove their supremacy without more losses while simultaneously reminding them all that despite their many differences they all had one very common root - to reach Akasha. And so the secrets of the Heaven's Feel ritual were once more extracted to enact the famed competition that began in the Japanese city of Fuyuki many years ago.

"A Holy Grail War?" Alistair Lorelei, Head of Clocktower, asked as he took a sip of the wine in his goblet, eyes fixed on his guest.

"I think we've had enough of war, don't you?" Dowth answered softly, stroking his beard. "I was thinking.. the Grail Games."

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

The Factions

Clocktower

Currently the headquarters and main branch of the Mage’s Association, the departments that compose it as well as the workshops of its members (which are mainly underground facilities) are located in the British Museum. From the outside, Clock Tower appears to be an appealing and welcoming place, but the truth is not so bright. Actually, the inner workings of the place are ruled by the power struggles between several factions of Magi. Clock Tower is currently under the control of a pseudo-aristocratic elite called the Lords. Each Lord holds great political power within the Association just by himself, and there is also those who associate themselves to other talented Magi or an important Magi lineage in a sponsor-sponsored relationship so to increase their influence. Maybe due this elitist background, preconceived and discriminatory behavior is somewhat widespread inside Clock Tower. Rune and Witchcraft Thaumaturgy are not very popular in the main branch, the latter not being taught as an academia at all. It is home to the most diverse studies of magecraft, however, with departments devoted to such magecraft as minerology, spiritual evocation, spiritual invocation, and universal research.

Sponheim Abbey

One of the main groups within the Sea of Estray, an integrated conglomerate of minor organizations of magi that are spread throughout Europe. It was the original Mage's Association that predated the Clock Tower. Sponheim Abbey is an institution that works closely with Clock Tower and resembles its more diverse academic structure.

Thule Society

Another of the components of the Sea of Estray, it is a group of magi that study rune magecraft. They are said to possess the original runic scripts.

Prague Association

The last of the component groups within the Sea of Estray. An organization that researches on alchemy, its members follow the traditional precepts of alchemists. Consequently, they are on bad terms with Atlas

Atlas

The Atlas Academy, also known as The Giant’s Pit, is located somewhere among the mountains of Egypt. An institute focused on the study and development of Alchemy, but with members that diverge from the classical view of the alchemist from the Middle Ages and are more worried about the greater truths of the universe. The most independent of the Three Great Branches, it has its own terms of relationship with the Holy Church and other magic organizations. Not surprisingly, these traits cause Atlas to be disliked by the Clock Tower and the Prague Association. Atlas has a number of unique customs for a magic association. One of them is that, at times, the institute has been known to lent its alchemist to other organizations such as the Holy Church, although the particulars of the process dictate that the other party must possess one of the seven special contracts that Atlas has printed in the past. One of the organization's main concerns in the present is the recovery of said contracts. Another custom is for the directors of Atlas to adopt the name of Atlasia during their time in office.

Members of Atlas utilize a method of prediction based on Laplace's Demon. After its first director theoretically predicted the end of the world, the alchemists of Atlas have dedicated themselves into developing methods capable of avoiding it. However, because anything potentially capable of preventing the end of the world might also create even greater devastation, eventually rules dictating that everything created in Atlas must be kept and disposed of within the domains of the organization were established. They believed that the magi war was a sign of the end.

Yggdmillennia

The Yggdmillennia: Tree of a Thousand Realms is a unique family of magi that takes in other families rather than continue a single bloodline. Though they have a long history, they are not a family of Lords. They are speculated to have lost a power struggle with the three royal families of the Association in the past or have been estranged from others due to the poor quality of their magic circuits. They neither belong to or have a connection to any other group, and they are often not recognized as a noble thamaturgical family. Having abandoned the common method of thickening the blood of thaumaturgical potential over generations while mastering the thaumaturgical system chosen by the first generation, they instead took in all magi families with even the smallest connections to them from all over the world. They focused on taking in those with little history and weak Magic Circuits, those with their Magic Circuits on the decline with successive generations, those defeated in power struggles that were forced into ruin, and those with a price on their head as a punishment by the Association.

Though the families had strayed from the core of the Association, they had refused to give up the path to the Root, so Yggdmillennia gave them the chance to leave their blood's legacy and a mark upon history. Their family names are given as middle names to each member of the family, and the Thaumaturgical Crests of each family are still passed down within each one rather than having a single unified crest for a single successor. This has caused them to develop a broad range of study with each member pursuing a different path, which include Western alchemy, dark arts, witchcraft, astrology, Kabbalah, and runology.

Eastern Magi Alliance

The newest of the magi groups, the Eastern Magi Alliance was formed in response to the growing tensions before the magi war. Fearing that they would be taken advantage of by the Association or one of the other victorious factions, the magi of the East banded together to form their own alliance to prevent encroachment of foreign magi on their practices and ways. Though there is little relation between any of these groups, the similarity in their magecraft and approach to magical studies given them a strong common ground.

The Battlegrounds

Spoiler:
 

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

The Guidelines

It is expected that participants will post at least once a day unless a reasonable excuse is given to one of the GMs ahead of time. One unexcused absence will be allowed for one day before the player's character is killed off. Players who have their characters killed off may NOT reapply with a new character. If you believe you are unable to keep up with this, then PLEASE do not bother applying. Players who are online all day and don't post because they are either lazy or too busy posting in other threads will be kicked out immediately. I don't share well.

It should also be noted that the GM's word is final. And if I approve something and later decide against it, don't put up arguments about how I approved it before. Sometimes things are difficult to tell before the fact, so I will make changes as the rp goes. Additionally, please don't harress the GM (moi) and the assistant GM (Jorg) with unimportant things.

Perhaps most importantly, be aware that characters WILL die in this rp. If you have a problem with parting with your character, please don't sign up. In this type of rp, characters need to be expendable, and I don't want to have to fight over this.

I shouldn't have to mention this, but keep in mind godmoding and meta-gaming are not allowed. This is particularly important in a Fate rp where information is power, and your character should ONLY be allowed to use information revealed to them inside the rp.

By submitting a character for this rp, you are agreeing to these guidelines. If you break them, I reserve the right to hold a grudge against you indefinitely.

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

Collaboration

Since Masters and Servant will likely need to collaborate on posts together, particularly for battles, you might want to use this site to do so.

Name: J.C. pronounced Jayce (Jonathan Charles)

Age: 27

Appearance:
Spoiler:
 

Personality:
He is comfortable being in the background playing a supportive role rather than taking the initiative and standing in the spotlight. Most tasks he completes, though creative and motivated at the beginning, aren't always done on time. His emotions rarely get in the way of his work unless someone really tries to piss him off. When he does get angry, it is a cold anger that he can hold for days even weeks until it finally bursts loose. Usually, he is very down to business, unflinching even in the face of most horrible actions if they are part of the job.

Whenever he loses his initial motivation, he can appear a little unfocused and his lack of interest after the main objective is fulfilled can lead him to leaving open ends.

He is analytical and has a good eye for details. Together with his creativity, it helps him come up with ideas that appear to be reckless and irresponsible at times.

Character:
Unless he's known a person for quite a while he stays formal and critical in his interactions. When he does know someone closer, he is a loyal companion, most cheerful and sociable as long as it doesn't relate to his work. Pleasing in his behavior, Jayce can be charming in an unobstrusive way to the point where people will talk to him and then forget about him a moment later. However, he immediately becomes serious when more sensitive topics, such as missions, are discussed.

His biggest weakness is, perhaps still a remnant from the time he spent admiring his brother, that he keeps trying to prove himself over and over again. With no interest in money, his goal is recognition and respect for his talents above all.

History:
Spoiler:
 

Status: Enforcer?

Origin: Flow

Attribute/s: Water

Weapon/s: 2 daggers (one of them being Sicarii)

Mystic Code/s:

-Name: Circuit Breaker "Sircarii"
-Type: Specialized
-Appearance:
Spoiler:
 
-Effect: This weapon has the appearance of an elegant hand crafted dagger, with an adamantine blade that is engraved with tribal markings. On the outside it looks like a normal dagger and while inactive it can be used as such. Once activated by passing prana through the blade and calling out its name ("Sicarii"), it will amplify the pain from a wound tenfold, making it last much longer than it normally would. The pain is spread not only through the nervous system of the opponent, but also through the magic circuits without damaging them. As an after-effect to the pain, it also mimicks the effect of a cleansing agent, burning away all traces of magical interference done to a persons mind or their circuits.
Even a small cut will inflict far greater pain than a normal blade on those two levels, even though the physical damage may be minor. This allows the user to inflict wounds with greater effect, especially since it can range from dazing the opponent to torturing them.

Skills: Mystic Eyes of Illusion
These eyes allow the user to create a life-like illusion. This can range from simple objects appearing to the user clouding and changing his appearance in the eyes of the one affected. Depending on the strength of the illusion and the mental state of the one affected, it can last from several seconds to hours. It has tendencies to imitate the effect of hypnosis, only quicker and with a single word and glance.

Magecraft: Water, Ice

Spoiler:
 

Familiars:
Falcon - it used to be a real tamed falcon, loyal to Jayce until one day it was heavily wounded. Sad, that his companion and friend might die, he decided to make him into a familiar, that he now uses for recon and obervations.

Appearance:
Spoiler:

Name: Jacques Nold

Age: 60

Appearance:
Spoiler:
 

Description: A kind-looking, physically fit, but rather weary looking old man seen holding a cane for an odd reason. He constantly walks around with his shoulders held high and respect and attention and listens the views of a lot of other people. Though, he's also strange in the regard that he records almost every act he does in some form. That being said, the old man always seems very strangely distant, always lost in deep-thought.

History:
Spoiler:
 

Status: Archive and researcher of Thule society; Representative

Origin: Memory

Attribute(s): Wind and Lightning

Weapon(s): Dual Glaives

Mystic Code(s):

Name: Emperor's Guard
Type: Specialized
Appearance: A very well forged golden-looking metallic glaive, it is inscribed with various symbols that resmble royal and various writings from past ages that come with holders that attach to the bottom of one's arm that allows the glaive to fold up when it reaches the owner.
Effect: Once these glaives are inscribed with the insigna of their power they will always return to the owner like a boomerange as long as they have the momentum to do so.


Skills: Besides his near photo-graphic memory, nothing

Magecraft:
Spoiler:
 


Servant Type: Archer (Most likely)

Base: Underground Archives

I think we are going to go with Dusseldorf after all. :0 They have castles there! Jorg, Caster could set up here:

Kaiserpfalz (Emperor's Palace) Kaiserswerth

The ruins of the medieval Kaiserpfalz or Emperor's Palace, which was built in 1180 by the legendary Friedrich I. "Barbarossa" is a must-see for those interested in history. Restorations since the beginning of the past century have preserved the monument. In the neighbouring basilica, in a golden shrine lie the remains of St. Suitbertus.



While Clocktower's faction, the Lannisters, set up here. :0

Scloss Eller

Not all of Düsseldorf's palaces can be seen from the inside. In contrast, their parks and English gardens are mostly accessible and offer beautiful walks. Especially in the summer months, the forest-like parks of Schloss Eller or Schloss Heltorf in Angermund are a cool oasis.



Of course, Dowth will mercilessly criticize Jamie Lannister's pompous and foolish decision to take up residence in such an easily noticeable spot. But Jamie travels in style.

They do exist, technically.

http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/Lugh_Beowulf

I'm not sure how you'd work that in though. Since they're phantasmal creatures, I don't see them being part of magi organizations. Unless, of course, you have him kill the Master from the Eastern Magi Organization and steal his Command Spells at the start of the war.

Well that says that only Lugh was a phantasmal creature. But hrmm.

I'm only considering it because I thought I should make a Werewolf Original Character, so I doubt I'll actually use one. I'll try to keep it mind that they're more wild beast in origin than man though.

Well, Lugh is on a completely different level. But they're still of that kind of species.

All right.

This works out really well though, Jacques is quite familiar with France and Germany because of the island he lived on and trade... so I can probably do quite a bit with him.

The biography of that person was really interesting, what's he from? The VN that has the red haired woman as a MC?

Okay, here's the map. First is an overview of the area, second is a close up with the main points marked and in the third one, I overlayed the subway map just to get a general idea of where the lines run

not all of these buildings are actually where I put them, but I guess this will work, right?

Let me know what you think....

You're saying the biography of the person your character is based off of?
