    to at least counter the words limit thesis, fort, the RP closest to finishing (or somewhere in the same area as Ga-Rei) regularly had people write tiny novels as their posts

    maybe the secret is making a minimum post length

    So, in the vein of Create-a-Servant, why not have a competition to write the best Grail War RP premise.
    I think it’s pretty clear that the most important thing here is a layered story to keep things interesting and to give the players various other goals beyond just killing each other.
    The problem then comes in the form of who’s gonna host the winning entry of the creator isn’t able to host it themselves…

    I do realize that I’m jumping the gun here, and I apologize.

    Uh.

    Probably none?


    I mean I guess if u count dead people as a metric then it'd be the first grill war yes. Regalia was definitely ahead in terms of days passed but we were still in the prologue portion of it all tbh


    edit: It occurs to me that eternal prologue mode might be the actual cancer in BL RPs

    Actually, to be perfectly honest, while that could work, wouldn't just a regular Nasuverse dungeon crawl without Servants be more fun, as Sei has very, very clearly demonstrated?

    Has anyone tried one that plays like a Prisma war (every player has class cards) or a war with every participant being a pseudo servant/demiservant?
    Sure it lowers master to servant interaction but each player has the agency of both without having two characters to write (unless they go for a body sharing type grail war).
    Command Spells in this war would count as manual overrides to the servant's control or power boosts if they are included at all.
    Nasu Knowledge:
    Saw all KnK movies.
    Played all of Fate/Stay Night, most of hollow Ataraxia, read Fate/ Zero, Prisma Illya (read and watched).
    Read Tsukihime manga, Melty Blood Manga, Melty Blood 2 manga and Melty blood X.
    Spoiler:



    What Fate/Stay Night character are you?



    Saber


    You are Saber. You are strong and determined. You fight for justice and honor, and protect those around you. Selfless in every way, you would put yourself at risk to save others. You are a knight; the sword and shield of your allies.

    You'll have to make it yourself

    You could always make it a community effort though. Some people (not many, but a few) would probably be willing to help you create the rulebook and story.

    I'm heavily considering doing one over on discord. Over the past few months I've been hosting a servant battling tournament to test fights and now I'm probably about to do a master one. Once I've gotten the basics down for those i feel like the next logical step is the grail war itself. If you folks are interested just let me know.

    Discord Grail Wars don't work in my experience...

    Last time I did one, it turned into something involving who could type the fastest. (It didn't help that no one was regulating it either, so people basically whatever the f*** they wanted, including pulling an Aperture Science facility on a mundane hospital.)

    Still, there's keeping people going, and then there's just going too fast.
    If you think you can though, I'd still be interested.

    That aside, have you thought up a story yet?

    Like I said, I already did a tourney involving servants which actually ran to completion with some pretty good fights in there so I at least know what I'm doing somewhat. I've gotten the concept of running it mostly nailed down it's just actually running is was what I was waiting to do.

    As for the story, I feel like for the first one a straight traditional grail war run in Fuyuki with any canon servants is a good bet for a test run since there are a lot of factors you can work around with that.

    A man with a plan and the means to do it, sounds good to me.

    Even the canon restriction shouldn't be hard considering just how many servants there are now.

    What do you guys think of a play-by-post order-based Grail War a la Diplomacy?

    Basically, for clarification's sake, a more game-like Grail War where players write down and submit their actions, trading character and interaction for a more fast-paced competitive game of strategy. Not sure if something similar has been done here in the past.
