    [Quest] Lost Singularity - Fimbulwinter

    Atop the frozen city of death, the foundation of the world shatters…

    Deviation. Distortion. Detachment.

    Isolated from its origin timeline, divergent from its source, and from the common pathway of normality; the Human Order. A meaningless single frame, separated from the sequence we call "time", yet bound to its own, aberrant tempral axis, leading to nothing but self-destruction. An event that should not be, leading to the collapse of the proper route of history.

    That is a Singularity.

    Somewhere, at some point, detecting and correcting these irregularities became the purpose and duty of a certain security organization.However, Chaldea cannot reach everywhere. It cannot undo every tangle, unmake every snag, smooth every wrinkle. Its challenge is already titanic enough.

    This, is a Lost Singularity. A rebellion against the current ways of man, far from the eyes of Chaldea. No rayshifting Master will arrive to resolve it. If this Singularity is to be corrected, it will be by the people of that broken timeline.

    You are one of those unfortunate ones. If you wish to restore your world, if you wish a future for yourself and those around you, then you must face the city of frozen death, challenge the rising black sun, and shatter the throne of the gods.


    Welcome to Fimbulwinter.

    The stage is Valparaiso, Chile, in the year 2015. The city will be captured by a sinister plot, and detached from the temporal axis, converting it into a Singularity in which our Protagonist is inexorably trapped. Only death awaits those trapped in the frozen city, so, should we want our PC to hold on to their puny existence, they must challenge those responsible for the Singularity, and restore the proper course for their world.

    Before we can start writing the tale of the City of Death and the Black Sun, we must create a "player character" and complete the "setting".

    Regarding the voting section:

    So are you deciding the results from the most-picked choices, or the most-picked set of choices?

    Nonetheless, I'm excited.
    The Act of dozing off in the afternoon is a luxury indeed.
    Coffee would be nice, though.

    Each question is tallied individually, if that's what you are asking.

    EDIT: Furthermore, every single "answer" has a value, not only the one with the most votes. You can assume that the surveys are merely a disguise for the true, secret tallying taking place, using your answers to those seemingly arbitrary questions. You can only trust me when I say all your answers have the same intrinsic value, and I apologize for not being able to offer further assurance.

    Thanks to everyone who has shown interest by filling the surveys thus far. While we are certainly in the IC board, do not hesitate to comment or ask further questions in this thread. There's still some time before the story begins, after all.

    Looks like fun. I did standard Shounen protagonist answers.
    cept for the pen and notepad.

    So will this be a post-Temple of Time thing with our MC being a newly recruited Master with our own new Servant?

    Also, will Mashu and Ritsuka be around? Because I just want there to be that possibility of some weird chick coming on the male cast and igniting Mashu’s suppressed Tsun instincts. Okay fine, I’ll just confess I just ship it.

    i chose old hard boiled disillusioned detective
    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.

    I think this has been rather clearly stated to not be the case, unless I'm misinterpreting something here.

    However, Chaldea cannot reach everywhere. It cannot undo every tangle, unmake every snag, smooth every wrinkle. Its challenge is already titanic enough.

    This, is a Lost Singularity. A rebellion against the current ways of man, far from the eyes of Chaldea. No rayshifting Master will arrive to resolve it. If this Singularity is to be corrected, it will be by the people of that broken timeline.

    The survey linked above will be open for 72 hours as of the posting of this thread. The survey has five questions. I will use the answers to complete the setting for Fimbulwinter, and perhaps more importantly, decide on the Servants that will be drawn to the Singularity, for one reason or another.
    A better way of generating the MC's servant than I did also once we find the MC details I'll be dropping names and FC's

    It is trivial to improve on what already exists. I still study your Quest of Fate on an almost daily basis in the hopes of building something just as interesting.

    On another note, there are 24 hours left before I close the surveys. I must admit, most of the things that needed to be set seem pretty decided already. There are only thing or two that could still be swayed by additional votes.

    Alright, the surveys are closed. Many thanks to the 29 submissions to the Character Creation and the 23 to the Setting Creation.

    Look forward to the next step, in which I introduce you to our protagonist.

    Character Name & Appearance

    Alright, next step. Naturally, we'll get to know our protagonist's true features and personality throughout the development of his story. The following statements are merely pointers aimed at helping you come up with his appearance and/or faceclaim.


    • 26-years-old male.
    • Unable to connect with anything or anyone, he left home upon finishing high school, afflicted with inescapable wanderlust.
    • He is highly dexterous and likes working with his hands. Had he gone to college he would have probably studied something like architecture or engineering. Despite his lack of formal education, he is a skilled carpenter, and can draw decent maps and sketches if needed.
    • A down-to-earth kind of guy, constantly living in the present. He is also an avid reader of non-fiction, always downloading new stuff to read to his smartphone.
    • He is healthy, and gives the impression of a guy who would probably thrive in the military. However, he is at heart an introvert, and does not really possess a martial mindset.
    • In Association terminology, he is a "spellcaster", and he is entirely self-taught. He doesn't know anything about magecraft or the Association, or even the term "magecraft". It's all just "magic powers" to him. He doesn't know about magic circuits, either, but he is well aware he has to "switch on his powers" before he can do anything with them.
    • He doesn't know it, but his elemental affinity is "Fire".


    Naturally, the choice of name and faceclaim would also decide his birthplace. Do keep this in mind when you present your suggestions. Anywhere works fine, although it would make more sense if he came from a place with a major port. Naturally, being a native Chilean would give him valuable knowledge of the location, but other birthplaces carry their own intrinsic advantages (cultural and historical knowledge, for example).

    Let's allot at least another 72 hours for deciding on a name and faceclaim. Looking forward to your contributions.

    Do we know what exactly are his powers, or will they still be revealed to "the audience"?

    You will make the choices regarding his magecraft at the start of the story. For now, you can assume he will not have Mystic Eyes or any overt physical features derived from his magical qualities.
