    So, this is a "what if", what if you are in a HGW in Fuyuki and you have a Servant with a nuke-like NP (Anti-Army/Anti-Fortress/Anti-Country or whatever), like Karna or Gawain. So when you calculate that the battle more or less begin, in the middle of the day (when you aren't supposed to fight) and directly over the whole town you make your Servant fire their NP boosted with a Command Seal and wipe the whole city. If that doesn't kill the 6 other Servant it should at least kill the other Masters. Should you be able to win the war like that?

    in principle yes, but in practice protagonists always survive - also you now have a bunch of angry clock tower enforcers coming after you - good luck

    But if the nuker is the protagonist, he's also guaranteed to survive the enforcers because being hunted for his actions is a plot for a sequel.

    Protagonists typically don't nuke cities, though, contrary to what the US army and government may believe.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    Rather than main story material, the nuking thing sounds more like backstory material for an edgy protagonist such as Kerry. A spaghetti incident of sorts that gets explained gradually during the main work.
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    I'd imagine the servant will tell you nuking the city will take unimaginable amounts of prana, which you will try to set up, and the protagonist will try to interrupt and they almost do and then you nuke the city but you don't really have everything you needed so you don't quite nuke it but make a huge mess and so your exhausted servant duels Saber in the burning city and then something something grail mud nobody wins

    This is under the assumption that you had the mana to spare and you actually manage to nuke the city, because you did it so fast as you could and in the middle of the day. Could you get away putting the blame in other Servant or an collateral damage? also, you nuked the church too, so it shouldn't give you a bit of time or advantage?

    If you nuke the land you would potentially mess up the grail.

    insert what am I fighting for.

    This is basically the bigger version of Ozy vs others in fragments isn’t it.

    Large-scale NPs shouldn't be hard to detect and counter-act (see Gilgamesh vs Arthur in Fate/Prototype). And Masters don't really have to stay in the city all the time (Einzbern Castle etc).

    Not to mention a number of noble phantasms that can protect one or multiple masters, or even just outright nullify your attack.
    Basically, with so many variables, this plan is as likely to succeed as "hoping that all other masters die of cardiac arrest" is.

    I've heard that an (alleged) descendant of Nightingale has been commenting on her Fate portrayal. Is this true? To go off on a tangent, I know that historical Reinhard Heydrich also has living relatives, but apparently, his RL son is too busy trying to refurbish his father's castle to care about any fictitious portrayals.

    Yeah, a guy claiming to be her descendant has posted on Reddit a few times.

    Less "has been commenting" and more "commented one year ago". Ever since the incident he used FGO's Nightingale as his Twitter icon a few times and made some pixel art of her, but overall he has no real interest in getting to know FGO for real.

    Did he engage with the assassin’s creed fandom too?
    Though abandoned, forgotten, and scorned as out-of-date dolls, they continue to carry out their mission, unchanged from the time they were designed.
    Machines do not lose their worth when a newer model appears.
    Their worth (life) ends when humans can no longer bear that purity.

    He also did one of those "trying to name characters you've never seen before" video with FGO Servants.

    Honestly, the fact that he's so uninterested in FGO makes me believe him more.

    He posted this letter from her once that was in his attic or something.
    I believe him too. If I wanted clout from being related to someone famous, Nightingale's great grandnephew isn't the one I'd go with.

    More seriously, I reiterate I wish Fate/whatever had never actually used historical figures instead of legendary ones - or rather, that it gave those a proper in-depth treatment.

    Thing is, the line is so blurry that it may as well be non-existent. Is Gilgamesh real? Did the 3 Kingdoms Servants really do that which they did in the novel? Of course, there is also Vlad who hates his fictitious portrayal, while Nobu embraces it.
