    Do you have any intention of writing this any time soon? Because I really like this idea. The issue here is that there are a lot of non-apocrypha characters who would work well in that scenario. Three parties in particular:

    First off, we have Waver and Gray, as a single party+Iskandar of course. Or even just Waver because this scenario is pretty much Iskandar's idea of a party. And, you know, he's already made a habit of solving magical crimes.

    Second, there's Ciel. I could think that the reason would be obvious, because she could be one of the murder victims, and then come back, shocking everyone and potentially making her a suspect if and when she's unable to provide the killer's identity. Also, she's a smart cookie, and it'd just make sense to use her.

    And third, there's Shirou and Rin as a single party+Saber—I think they could probably do a pretty good 'good cop/bad cop' routine. And Shirou would be easy to bring into this; hero of justice expects something to go horribly wrong because that's just what happens in Grail Wars. But the main reason to bring him in would be that he could drag Rin along with him, and I think she'd be spectacular in a murder mystery scenario.

    One last note: I think it would be clever if the Assassin-class Servant was particularly non-assassiny so-to-speak. Assassin and his/her Master are naturally going to be the first suspects when this is supposed to be an attempted peaceful scenario. In fact, if you actually take any of these ideas to heart, Ciel wouldn't be half bad as an Assassin's Master either.

    I've got a migraine and am phone posting, so this will be a very brief interest check. Since the lemon contest thing is starting to a close, and I shall for better or worse soon finish my capstone project, I wanted to know if anyone would be interested in a fic bingo challenge.

    I can track down an example if people are confused but interested.

    The idea is that there would be a fairly large pool of concise prompts or fic elements. Those who sign up receive a randomized bingo card from that pool. Often there is some mechanism for participants to exclude a few prompts they definitely don't want from the card generation.

    Basically this would encourage each participant to write a number of fairly short fics to fill their card, or we could talk about some way for it to work with longer fics that include several card squares.

    Since ancient times, the moon has carried magic, women, and death.

    Is this a small-time thing or something along the lines of Kirby and Milbunk's contests?

    Sounds cool/interesting is all I can say for now.

    I'm not in a position at the moment to enter contests (for now) but it would be interesting to see.

    about the murder mystery, I would reading something like that if it involves Shirou alone with his thoughts as he delves deeper into what's going on. Post war of course when he's travelling around the world all by himself.

    If Shirou was in a murder mystery, he'd be best as a potential suspect/rival to the actual protagonist. Play on reader expectations of him being a straightforward confirmed good guy versus the story's implications that something shady is going on.

    It's more like a personal challenge thing. Like, trying to make bingo or black out your card. I'm not really sure what I'd do in terms of rewards of any kind because I can't draw and it's not really set up for there to be one winner or whatever, but maybe something could be arranged.

    I'm kinda interested, but unsure of how this works precisely. May I ask for a visual? Lol.

    Actually the idea of tossing magi through a DnD style dungeon holds some promise.
    Consider a magus who believes the key to some breakthrough lies within some obscure ritual that the DnD manual unwittingly copied, or perhaps some kinda test gauntlet for experimental creatures (say the magus believed the path to the root lied in recreating phantasmal creautures) or even some kinda dream thing to steal something (knowledge, life energy, whatever) from the participants.
    The precise methodology can vary, it could be a physical dungeon, a modern complex that merely resembles a dungeon, some kinda Kayneth at the Astoria kinda deal, a dream deal like Touko did that one time, or even a prototype of the Extra soul hackery stuff.
    The motivation for the characters would be investigating the rash of disappearances within the area, tracking down the rogue magus, or simply survival, depending on who you pick.
    Eligible characters are actually fairly varied, Shirou is easy mode, Rin and Bazett and Luvia are also plausible under the premise of investigating [a potential rogue magus/a rash of disappearances under their jurisdiction/on hire by someone else]. Non-magus characters like the Tsukihime cast are also available assuming they were kidnapped with magecraft assistance or randomly wandered in, taking notes from Want Left Mind Flayers.

    So yeah there's possibilities here, you just need to expand your cast and setting possibilities outside of FSN so it comes out less forced.

    Visual example of some trope bingo cards with absolutely no assertion as to the desirability of the tropes utilized (just using google images search):

    Spoiler:








    Of course when I went fishing ABO reared its ugly head. Anyway, basically we could as a community wrangle together a more specific and appropriate list of prompts. I have some ideas for how to do that but I can't articulate them right now due to brain pain. Also, we could make the grid smaller for a round in a community that's this relatively small in terms of active writers.

    For the bingo card thing, what would the preferred word estimate for each bingo section be roughly?
