    We have at least two Grand Servants with ties with or also being possible Beasts, what does that tell you?

    That the world is willing to take risks, but at the same time capable of retaining countermeasures against those risks. With Solomon for example, it really paid off.

  3. #75403
    That was more YHVH having countermeasures, not the CF (unless nasu does go with the CF being the christian god)

  4. #75404
    On one hand, that's fair, but I was really trying (and failing) to say that the world has a habit of selecting Grands geared to fighting specific Beasts, hence some of them having a strong connection to Beasts.

    What's Chad Orion's interlude about, besides him dying of ligma?

    It's just a cold, though he's never had one before so it's a new experience for him. Or at least that's what I think it says.

    Spotlight Lostbelt Olympus

    - Technology on a level where the average soldier can be as strong as a Servant.
    - Citizens made immortal by sci-fi tech.
    So much... he gave so much to do here...!

    Quote Originally Posted by Lasengle on Zeus

The boss battle introduced new gameplay elements, like moving between two other targets aside from the main Zeus and those reviving multiple times. Combining and balancing all these gimmicks wasn't easy. By the way, all mechgods had character profiles written by the chapter writer, and our efforts were dedicated to converting the contents of this profile into gameplay gimmicks.
    Quote Originally Posted by Sakurai on Adele and Makarios using Age of Gods magecraft
    What they used is unquestionably a kind of magecraft from the Age of Gods. A magecraft that utilizes arcana by accessing the Swirling Fount through the gods. Speaking a god's name means using arcana through said god. This means that instead them having multiple types of magecraft, they have 12 access keys to the one magecraft. I hope this analogy made the idea understandable. Each god's name already enables a wide array of arcana depending on the exact pronunciation, the intent put in the word, the prayer, etc. Side note: Makarios and Adele learned magecraft from the Mechanical Owl Minerva, a terminal of the goddess Athena. They also got some helpful advice from Heroic Spirit Helena from the Godbreaker Alliance. Also, their magecraft is an Olympus version, which follow the same principles as Medea's and Circe's AoG Greek magecraft but is different in the finer details. Magecraft was a lot more varied in the Pan-Human Age of Gods than it is in the stagnated Olympus.
    Quote Originally Posted by Sakurai on Zeus's Lifescale being the lowest
    As a consequence of the Lostbelt mechgod Zeus piling up all of the gods' functions (Authorities) in his own body, he was far more energy-intensive than any other ship, and thus had the shortest lifespan. Goddess Hera was the only one who knew this, and this memory was lost in the process of her assimalation into Europa. Mash's downcast face when she saw Zeus's lifescale was because the almighty Zeus also had the worst lifecycle, which made her understand he was a literal machine pushing itself to its limits to serve the people of Olympus. It was a moment of pity, respect, and sadness for the fact that, despite being like this, Zeus will never be anything more than an enemy to humanity.

    I'm very satisfied with his staff. It's a unique design that heavily incorporates the concept of fusing modern engineering with the ancient magecraft that reflects Kirschtaria's ancestry.

    - He guessed a Grand Servant would show up but was surprised at it being Romulus-Quirinus.
    - Act of burning the Fantasy Tree in the 6th Lostbelt.
    - Kadoc not laughing at his rock joke.
    - Kadoc not inviting him to go to the moving brothel together.

He'd be upping their intellect by one rank, which would end conflict over profits, happiness, and fulfillment because everyone would think that it's more efficient to improve themselves. He also believed that on top of this self-improvement mentality, these new intelligent lifeforms would also be able to cooperate to tackle bigger problems (the foundational diseases of the universe). Basically, a world where everyone is Ultraman.

    He thought Caenis wouldn't help in battle. "He'll express that he understands Chaldea's situation, but lending them a hand is a bit too much. It's a matter of Caenis's heroic pride. For as much as he's a very understanding guy, he's quite stubborn.", Kirsch sips his tea with a smile. But something happened that surpassed Kirschtaria's expectations. Goredolf unraveled Caenis's stubbornness with his choice of asking what kind of person Kirschtaria was instead of asking about Kirschtaria's combat abilities.

He showed a lot of sides to himself but if I had to boil down his qualities to one simple explanation, I'd say he's a man of love. I adore his worldview. Also his many humorous moments. Whenever I have to record lines for him, I focus myself on being faithful to Kirschtaria and his dialogue without overthinking anything. My heart is filled with the desire to speak more of his words.

    Weird that Poseidon's the biggest, you'd think Zeus would be

    Also I just realized Ares is the only Olympian (that we've seen) that's humanoid.

    Kadoc went to a brothel?

    Also damn, I can't believe that Ares was the smallest Olympian.

    Miwa: For an Olympian god, Ares was surprisingly disrespected by his believers.
    Sakurai: Must have been a manlet.

    Napoleon really dodged a bullet there.

    Ares got stuck in a jar for like 14 months by giants or whatever and the other gods didnt really try to get him out

    It's not just worshippers...

    Also replace worshippers with athenians

    Unknown. There is one scene of Beryl asking Aphrodite where Kadoc was and she answers “idk maybe he went to the automated brothel”. But that's all. There’s no explicit confirmation that any of the Crypters tried the Olympian fuck machines.

    I personally think Kirschtaria is the only one who checked them out. Kadoc is too emotionally constipated to handle even an automated whore. Pepe and Beryl... maybe if the whores can be programmed to be Daybit and Mash.

    Somehow the thought that Kirsch is interested in sex is tripping me out. Then again maybe he just wanted to be included in a...group?????? Activity?????????

  15. #75415
    To think that one of the main things Kirsch couldn't predict was that he has no friends.

    Makes Ophelia even more tragic when you think about it.

    Ah okay, I figure Kadoc was still in the Linkin Park phase of mourning his waifu.

    Is it just me, or does Swirling Fountís functionality and methodology as a magecraft sounds pretty 1:1 to runes? Discounting primordial runes, and beyond the intricacies of Greek gods and the history of runes, it sounds pretty similar to me. Of course, I know next to nothing of irl Greek mystics and runes beyond conventional cultural references, but Iím pretty curious of their systematic differences, beyond the obvious discrepancies.

    Also, has Swirling Fount been mentioned before? I swear Iíve heard it once, just canít remember the source.

    Pre-2022 it was frequently translated as Spiral of the Root, but it was revamped to Fount in the Petrikow terminology overhaul to better accommodate the water source imagery always used in its descriptions and most importantly, not to lock the translators out of such a common use word as "root".

    I think I came up with it, but I've only used it once or twice.

    I know its coming from me and all, but it's pretty cool, since 'fount' is usually used together with 'wisdom' in English speech (a fount of wisdom is the common collocation), while also tying in with the aqueous theme of 渦 (whirlpool).

    People always forget that before the Zero anime when we called it the Swirl of Origin, smh.

    And yeah, it's nice having terms that release you from using common words.
