    Don't you love catching up with something, then getting so swamped you get two weeks behind immediately?

    Backlog reviews!

    Krishna: Bit of a weird genderbend. The focus on the trickster god archetype is fun. Krishna advising Arjuna to shoot Karna in the back is explicitly non-canon, so her having a skill for it is iffy. The first NP is really cool, but the second is kind of boring. I personally think apotheosis NPs should be save for figures who REALLY need to it fit their legend or themes.

    Omegarus: I'm iffy on future Servants, but it's definitely an interesting concept.

    Henry Every: *Insert One Piece Reference Here* The plunder NP is fitting, much more so than a lot of the canon ones.

    Otakemaru: Simple, but it works. Feels a bit too human for an oni.


    ...Alright, why did everyone chug Red Bull on the 10th and 11th? So many Servant sheets.

    I'll post once I get caught up, and give feedback if anyone wants it.

    Well given he's from an 1805 book, you could argue he's a kinda-sorta-future Servant. But anyway, glad to get some feedback on him, especially since he's one of the more obscure figures I've done

    The hardest part was trying to reconcile the Spirit of the Earth wanting to keep humanity alive in his story with the Nasuverse, where that's most certainly not the case once you get to the End Times. I ended up mostly leaving it as 'Gaia works in mysterious ways'

    Also, the thing about a Krishna genderbend is that Vishnu already has a female avatar (Mohini), even if she's usually not counted among the ten

    Do it. The fate clearly wants you to.

    Lune is back, a joyous day.
    I like the sheet. Kullervo fulfilled his goal, right? So making him a proper Servant is actually harder than usual. Taking the sword as a stand-in is a neat idea.

    I read the original nayenezgani sheet and I think it would work much better thematically to have him be the one who took down velber 1 due to the theme of human self reliance and his title of “slayer of alien gods”.

    Short answer? Yes

    Long answer? Too damn big for it all to be as good as it is, but the writers manage to make most of it pretty apealing anyways.

    Foreigner - Harold Holt

    Foreigner of Point Nepean


    (By Kuroiwa Madoka)

    “What are the odds of a Prime Minster drowning? Ahem, that may not have been one of my best ‘articulated’ quotations…”

    True Name:
    Harold Holt
    Alt. Classes: Lancer, Archer (Gunner)
    Source: History
    Region: Australia
    Catalyst: Sand gathered from Cheviot Beach
    Armament: Fishing spear, gun, but most notably R’lyehian tendrils

    Character: “R’lyeh may not be the… easiest nation to maintain relationships with, but maintain Australia must. One mistake, and our entire nation could be gone.”

    Australian Liberal Prime Minister simultaneously lauded for his approachable personality and loosening of immigration, but also tainted by his unwavering support for the Vietnam War and having helped cause a recession. All this though has now been eclipsed in the public mind by his death, or lack thereof.

    A government member for the longest time before finally becoming Prime Minister, history records Holt has having won in an uncontested election. But if such an election seems too good to be true, it may well have been. In secret, Holt had gone down extreme means to secure the election, calling upon the collective denizens of R’lyeh to grant him victory, fearing if he didn’t do so first that R’lyeh would ally (much as the creatures of R’lyeh can even ‘ally’) with the Communists instead. In his mind, Australia needed the favour of any non-Communist power it could get.

    While the powers of the R’lyeh masses granted him his victory, in return they would doom his soul to add to their masses. On a visit to the otherwise restricted Cheviot Beach along Australia’s southern shores, Holt was then dragged beneath the waves and presumed dead, all before his first term was even over.

    As Foreigner, he is eager to get involved with any battle for the Grail, beyond even his normal sense of responsibility as a politician. This may be in part out of insecurity over how disappointingly short-lived his WWII involvement was, or more seriously a belief that the survival of the free world wholly depends on winning the Grail.

    Attribute:
    Earth/Beast
    Alignment: Lawful Mad
    Likes: Poetry, sports, mass media, politicians like Robert Menzies and Lyndon B. Johnson
    Dislikes: Communism, economics, religion, mentioning his miniscule war record
    Relationships:

    • Kullervo: “Your Finland cannot play nice with Communism, you’re either for or against- Wait, what do you mean by ‘after your time?’”
    • Rose Mackenberg: “Thing about fortune-telling is we’re all bound to fate either way.”
    • Kafka: “They’ll really let anyone into the Foreigner club, will they? Such a dour face too, rather puts one off your appearance.”
    • Black Dahlia: “I was there when such a lovely lady as you grew infamous as an unsolved mystery. To think the same would happen to me…”
    • Ngunaitponi: “Ah, I take it you are here to, er, discuss reparations then? Perpetual motion, how fascinating.”
    • Alfonso X: “I’d see our Spanish representative believes in the confines of destiny too. Hah, perhaps Spain-Australia relationships can improve?”
    • Ataturk: “Ah, one of our nation’s most oddly revered opponents. It’s certainly an occasion meeting you.”
    • Omegarus: “The future hardly sounds a pleasant place, but at least those Commies are gone, eh?”
    • Luo Guanzhong: “I’d doubt you’d find the same inspiration writing about China’s miserable present- Ahem, would you stop calling me a ‘loose end’?”

    Master: Will be attracted to any Master from a political background (especially if they remind him of LBJ), though that may be rare given most mages don’t like getting involved in mundane politics.
    Natural Enemy: Arthur Calwell, Mao Zedong
    Wish: For R’lyeh to become the guardian of the ‘free world’, ignoring that said world wouldn’t be free for long then.
    Rarity: 2/5

    Parameters


    • Strength: ***** D
    • Endurance: ***** C
    • Agility: ***** C
    • Magic: ***** C
    • Luck: ***** E
    • Noble Phantasm: ***** B


    Class Skills


    Existence Outside the Domain


    Denotes a being from the void of outer space.

    • Rank B: Foreigner has become Australia’s unofficial ambassador to the Sunken City of R’lyeh and all its unworldly creatures. R’lyeh and has no agreed upon location other than somewhere in the ocean, and by its nature likely has no comprehensible ‘human’ location. However, it is commonly narrowed down to Point Nemo in the southern Pacific Ocean, the farthest point on Earth from land. Given the instability of the Liberal Party in the years since, it can be theorized that R'lyeh's curse still lingers.


    Insanity


    The madness of those who encounter and try to bargain with the Outer Gods.

    • Rank B: A constant fear for Australia’s own security against a Communist domino effect that has been jammed in his mind even after the end of the Cold War. After contracting with R’lyeh, has become the belief that all sacrifices, reasonable or not, must be made for Australia’s ‘protection’.


    Personal Skills


    Charisma

    A composite Skill consisting of charm and the natural talent to command or unify an army or country. Increases the ability of allies during group battles.

    • Rank B+: A level above a king as Foreigner was elected by his country and in a landslide victory too, rather than inheriting it. Was also noted for his effective use of media. However, summoned as Foreigner with the ‘people’ of R’lyeh behind him, this skill has evolved from any natural charisma to something more like group brainwashing.


    Credit Crunch

    Ability to limit others’ means of coming into wealth.

    • Rank B: His credit squeeze on loans back in his Treasurer days has been credited as causing or at least propelling a recession in Australia. Foreigner can lower the Golden Rule Skill of any opponent by half. All the extra money is added to R’lyeh’s ‘vault’ due to him being summoned as Foreigner, not that the city necessarily needs it.


    Fatalism

    A philosophy that doubts, if not denies, the existence of free will.

    • Rank B: Upon encountering Foreigner, a saving throw is needed to keep any Servant’s Luck Rank from being lowered by one. While not religious himself, to the point of not seeing the danger of treating R’lyeh as a political ally, Foreigner was a strong believer in concepts like destiny.


    Speaker of the Sunken City

    Role as the human ambassador to R’lyeh.

    • Rank A: Foreigner has become R’lyeh’s diplomatic connection to not just Australia, but the whole world. Well, he could use the term ‘diplomatic connection’, but R’lyeh’s residents themselves wouldn’t call it that. This allows access to R’lyeh from anywhere on the globe, and to use R’lyehian tendrils as weapons and extra appendages. The Horrors of R’lyeh may be seen as Divine in nature, or at least of equal power to that, but to the agnostic Foreigner they’re simply the citizens of a powerful allied country, like the USA.


    <<Cut Skill>>[All Kinds of Talents

    Displaying of talent in multiple fields.

    Rank C: Has access to athletic activities like cricket, football, swimming, and fishing as well as political duties like diplomacy, rhetoric, and administration, all at Rank D.]


    Noble Phantasm

    Cheviot Current
    From Point Nepean to Point Nemo

    Rank: B
    Type: Anti-Army

    The powerful current off the south shores of the State of Victoria, which dragged Foreigner down into the ocean that unfortunate day at the forbidden Cheviot Beach. The current that, in exchange for the unnatural powers of R’lyeh granting him electoral victory and protection against Communist forces, claimed his soul for the Sunken, non-Euclidean City.

    Through R’lyeh’s deterioration of worldly logic, Foreigner can recreate the rushing tide off Cheviot without even needing to be in the water, creating an identical vortex in the air and land by warping and twisting space. It is a belief that wherever one is in the world, even if they’re nowhere near a restricted, secluded beach, that one cannot escape their own fated tide there to drag them down.

    While it is possible to escape with great enough Strength and Endurance, probably the best way to resist it is with Luck, given how the Phantasm also ties into Foreigner's own view of fate. Pity though he has a Skill specifically designed to thwart anyone all too lucky.

    This distortion of space is additionally useful for Foreigner as it can leave no trace of a defeated opponent. That way, people won’t know they’re even dead until forced to face the inevitable, though even then that still won’t tell anyone he killed them. The body is of course dragged down to R'lyeh, a plane of warped existence where any Servant who survives the current may wish they have died.

    If summoned as Archer, he could manifest the largely unused artillery at Fort Nepean from his fleeting time in World War II. As Lancer, he could use his fishing spear to create a similar if less wide-ranging effect to the above Phantasm by wrapping the current around it.


    Notes: His Noble Phantasm was originally going to be more water-specific, but I felt that'd make it too close to the Noble Phantasm given to Foreigner Clement I, so I played up R'lyeh warping space. R'lyeh in general is also a bit of an odd choice for a Foreigner patron, but I figured having him bonded with a city would make more sense for a politician

    Yeah, even as a Real Australian Patriot, I can't say that I approve Holt of all people being Servant-worthy at all.

    I think y’all are going a little too ham on the modern servant shit. I love modern servants and all but this is a little too far.
