    You really like Vortigern, huh morg? It will be interesting to see what they gonna do in the next LB if it ever comes out
    It is interesting to read through your little stories, they are easily digestible and not on the verge of whole fanfics. And there is a world where female Merlin exists in Chaldea. thats nice.
    The use of music during your stories is cool as well.
    I hope you make haste and read through all the singularities and LB soon, so you perhaps start making ur own.

    Yog, as long the chaos is entertaining im all for it.

    This is me saying goodbye to him. A fun finale for a character I thoroughly enjoyed making. Now, I can probably finally get him out of my head.

    Technically, yes. Were an inhuman, un-divinely linked being to summon him, a contract may be capable of forming. The problem being that, due to his high magic resistance and nature, they likely wouldn't be able to restrain him if they were not onboard with his mad desire. If they were an obstacle, the beast would simply drain them through the link and move on, as it doesn't need a master to exist after summon. If the master was something like a nature spirit or demi-human, the former would likely go along because Gaia's been against Humanity for a while now and the latter would feel the urge to because of Phantasmal Blessing. Basically, even with a contract, they aren't the ones in control.

    Part 4 of 3 (I needed that 4th part)

    Icarus: Did not expect Icarus to be ported as a rebellious teen, but it works out fairly well. His stats are fair and he is an interesting character, I'm a little surprised to see Daedalus portrayed like that (although I wonder if that's what he was actually like or Icarus' perception of the matter) as he seemed to be mostly just a caring parental figure to Icarus and even warned him against flying to high or low.


    Kvasir: Aside from the saver aspect (which you yourself touched upon) my only complaint is the ability to comprehend things and replicate things outside the world seems a bit much (even if it does badly hurt him in doing so). Aside from that he is well written and has a fair amount of ties to his original myths from what I can see


    Baba Yaga: Baba Yaga is an interesting character to see simply because there are so many ways to look at her myths, and partly because there are so many myths that it's hard to tell where the original tales began and where those stemmed from than other later additions. Dependent on how you ask she is a witch, a bogeyman, a potential helper, the embodiment of the wild untamed aspect of femininity, and more. This interpretation is another unique one and one that offers creative ideas, unique noble phantasms, and a glimpse into Slavic myths. Overall, it's a fine first sheet, welcome to the thread FairyTale46.


    E.S.P.: Interesting choice on Aoi, given her track record I'm not sure I would fully call her a bad mother in and of itself, but it is easy to imagine her as one (given the sakura situation). The idea of it being a phenomenon which you are really summoning more than a person is a unique idea and gives a degree of tragedy and hour to the sheet as well. Overall another well made piece.


    Joseph: I like the darker character tone on the servant as I do feel that there is a tendency for both fate and related material to sometimes sanitize a bunch of christian figures, and gloss over some of the darker or more questionable things done by them. Joseph is a neat choice as it's fairly easy to envision his life going another way I would also be potentially interested in seeing a lostbelt Moses where instead of going along with Dis Pater's will he rejected it and sided with Ozymandius due to perhaps not wishing to quarrel with his brother and friend, or being frightened of the idea of the destiny which would await him should he go along with Dis Pater.


    Vortigern the Usurper: It's a good sheet, but there are a few issues with it. The main one is that it is borderline if not flat out impossible for Berserker to support itself with only mana. As pointed out in Fate Stay Night; mana is not unlimited, the area holding the grail in the 5th holy grail war, and entire massive cavern beneath a mountain only held around 1000 units of mana and if drain it was described that it would take weeks or months to replenish that amount. Dragons are not perpetual motion machines and cannot simply survive "no matter what" there is a reason why even with her dragon core active Artoria still needs a master, there is a reason why when the decline in mystery occurred that dragons began to retreat to the reverse side of the world (and those that didn't died), when the age of mystery began to decline so did the amount of mana in the world (something pointed out by comparing the time it takes Saber of Black to charge his sword versus Seigfired when he was alive [which due to the world having much more mana back then he could simply siphon it in and charge his sword faster than as a servant]).

    The best way I can put it is that dragon cores generate heir own energy to survive, but it isn't enough to supplant the need for mana from the outside world, hypothetically if a dragon needed 5000 units of energy to survive for one week and their core could provide 3000, it's still up to them to rely on absorbing mana to obtain the remaining 2000 units of energy that week to continue living. Thus when mystery (and by proxy mana started declining [as well as the rate at which mana replenished itself in an area potentially declining]) then dragons had no way to survive and thus had to leave. Put bluntly the amount of mana most of the modern world would have would not be enough to keep Berserker alive without a master, especially so considering that if he stayed in place after he drained all the mana in it, then it would take weeks to recharge (and unless he can tap into a ley line [which even they have limits]) then he would deprive himself of mana and dissipate without mana to remain unless he was being supported by Gaia with some sort of contract.

    True that. Is there a timeline or something for the Artoria stuff in Fate, trying to fit where stuff like most of Galahad's story doesn't mesh well with me mentally (I think it went something like Tristan's rebuke and leaving her -> Lancelot's betray -> Modred's rebellion -> death [with Tristan dying before Modred's rebellion as I don't think he was there for that]; but trying to place when things like the holy grail quest and when that happened, the battle with Vortigern, when specific members of the knights of the round joined her [and how old they may by proxy] is something I have never been able to nail down well either in the original stories or in Nasu). Also question do we even know if the old table (the prototype knights of the round existing during Uther's time which had Brunor Le Noir's father (Brunor the brown, the dragon knight [the guy who at 120 beat Arthur, Palamedes, Lancelot, and Gawain all in jousts]) even exists in Nasuverse?


    Quote Originally Posted by Morg van Destro View Post

However, if going by my logic of Vortigern's entire true history being rewritten, it wouldn't be a stretch to say that people rewrote what his actually prophecy is. Besides, they probably changed it in Fate because Vortigern is specifically said to have used the blood of a white dragon. Other than that, they don't give Vortigern much aside from Garden of Avalon, which is where I saw potential. Also, at this point, Vortigern hasn't consumed the dragon blood, so giving him those feature just wouldn't make sense in my eyes, especially considering Avenger exists and Berserker hasn't and might not be made.

    On Crocea Mors, the reason it feels random is because it initially was. For some reason, I've found myself coming back to Crocea for almost no reason some days. When I was writing Vortigern's backstory, I still didn't have an NP. However, I was suddenly struck, and began checking around Crocea and Caliburn. There really is so little information on both. Caliburn, basically being a substitute name for Excalibur in most things, doesn't really have an origin. It just exists. For Crocea, it was a sword lost in Britain that's just buried in some hole in the ground (wonder if someone could dig it up in modern times, or if it lost all its Mystery by that point). With that thought, I wondered if Vortigern might find the grave, but realized it would be convenient for Nennius to be buried in Brittany and unlikely he would desecrate a grave. However, having it be looted from the battlefield and passed around for a few centuries, now that is something I can work with. Sprinkle in a little destiny, a rando with a penchant for sword collecting, and you have Vortigern getting a sword that already served its purpose in history. Reforging it into Caliburn to give that weapon an origin was just icing on the cake. Though, I can't believe I didn't write a Caesar interaction. I need to fix that.

    WhiteFrenzy: That's why I roll with it and revel in the crazy! Nasuverse gets weird, but that's part of the fun. I mean, they didn't have to build all this stuff for an eroge, but they did, which is honestly pretty funny when you think about it. It's also set up with the potential for interesting stories and interactions, which I thought was part of the reason for this threads existence. A Hitler of ash, an explorer turned ice wendigo, a savior guillotine, a tank becoming a mecha, a Vortigern with motivation beyond power and ambition, a tortured child who's never full, all the genderbends just for the heck of it.
    As is usual, I definitely forgot what I was talking about halfway through.

    Fair enough, I can get wanting to give a guy a sword and wanting to explain where caliburn came from, I always liked to think it was a mystic code made by the fey and gifted to Merlin, and prior to Excalibur having been retconned into even more story importance and tied into Sefar's defeat I had my own theory regarding it. In Nasu's works it's said that Caliburns true power can only be drawn out when it's user has become the true king worthy of it and a link exists between Caliburn and Excalibur (modern scholars think they were actually the same sword) and we know Caliburn was broken and that Excalibur Galantine and Arondight were called sister swords to Excalibur. Based on all that my old theory is that when caliburn broke it was reforged by the fey into Excalibur and that either some of its parts were used to make Excalibur Galantine and Arondight (thus making them essentially all deriving from the same parent weapons, siblings of a sort) or that Excalibur Galantine and Arondight were created in parallel with Caliburn being reforged into excalibur, thus being sister weapons in that they were given to Artoria and her two greatest knights and were made at roughly the same time.

    As for Crocea Mors (if you are talking about real life), don't get your hopes up on that end there are a couple factors which make it fairly unlikely (the first of them is that even if the sword is real we don't know fully where to start looking for it) that we will ever find it or that if we do it may even be a sword anymore. Considering that the romans likely had some amount of Iron from the conquest of Etruscans and learning of their Iron Age or that it may have been combed with carbon to make some rudimentary form of steel that means the blade would rust and corrode left to the elements, and rust doesn't just effect a weapon's surface it goes deep and penetrates deeper and deeper into the metal, if it were left lying around it would be so rusted that it likely may or may not have all but disintegrated due to the elements and such (or possibly been swept into the sea if it got caught up in a river). This even assumes it was left untouched which is fairly improbable, based on examinations of old battlefields we have generally found that most soldiers and armies would scavenge armor and weapons from their foe (likely both to deprive any opposing forces from taking the weapons to use against them, to develop a surplus of weapons and armor, and also if they could melt down some of the metal then they could forge new weapons and armor or other items [and anything they missed would have likely been scavenged by looters long before we came to dig up those battlefields]) which make this improbable. For all we know the real Crocea Mors may have been melted down into another weapon or even perhaps turned into coins after being broken centuries ago and thus may never be found. If you are talking about Nasu's world knowing mages someone probably has that thing lying around somewhere if only to brag that they have it.

From my standpoint i would consider Simo Häyhä one of the last Servants. If modern day servants would qualify as Servants, they would already need a legendary or infamous reputation now in some specific fields. Häyhä, Charly Chaplin, Zodiac Killer, Armstrong, Monroe, Disney, Elvis, Frank Sinatra, different presidents perhaps, Bin Laden even, famous authors like JK Rowling, heck perhaps even Steve Jobs or Elon Musk in several decades could qualify. The thing is with some of them that their legends are still in the works and therefore creating sheets for them is not that easy imo.
    Tho I like the Servantverse idea. Dont see many sheets for them around.
    I was not aware of the legal trouble with Armstrong, but I did recall Fate: Extra's world was ahead of the others by some amount (it surprises me they were willing to do Voyager if they got into that legal trouble before). I definitely can understand that limitation, having people's legends still grow and evolve over time does make it hard to do modern servants. As for the servant verse I generally like it as it tends to embrace some of the silliness in fate (The Picts possibly being alines, Merlin and Yoshitsune's mentor knowing each other, the Olympians being saint Mecha space gods, etc.) revels in it.

    (Broad)Caster of the Information Age
    "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Masters and Servants of all ages, welcome to our new hit talk and variety show series, Chaldea Night Live! Starring your host, the incredibly multi-talented genius inventor, engineer, innovator, cinematographer, and most recently, independent producer; the one and only... Caster!!"


    Source

    "Ah, it's not enough, there's still so much more I'd like to do on this borrowed time. Of course, I could go back to engineering and inventing, but the people won't remember me just for that, won't they? They want a story, a narrative to entertain themselves with. Honest efforts are trampled in favor of business and headlines. That's true not just in showbiz, but also in life. So if that's what the people wants, that's exactly what I'll give them."

    Class: Caster
    Other Classes: -
    True Name: John Logie Baird
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Origin: Scotland (19th century)

    Parameters:

    STR: E
    END: D- (EX)
    AGI: E (EX)
    MGI: E
    LCK: C
    NP: C

    Likes: People acknowledging his efforts, making something worth remembering
    Dislikes: His illness, being forgotten, unfair competition
    Talent: Engineering, acting, learning new things
    Natural Enemy: Thomas Edison, Guglielmo Marconi, the BB Channel
    Armament: -
    Catalyst: Old television parts


    Class Skills
    Territory Creation (C+)

    The ability to build a special terrain that is advantageous to oneself as a magus, such as for the purpose of collecting mana. Caster can create a small "studio", where he may host his shows. Influenced by Caster's outlook on life, the mana gained through this Skill is treated similarly to "revenue", in a sense that while at first Caster may only accumulate minuscule amounts of mana, the amount may gradually increase the more well-known he becomes. Similarly, he can also share this
    revenue
    mana
    with "guest stars" of his show, providing them with minor healing spells and small energy boosts.

    Item Construction (False) (D)

    A Skill that acts as an equivalent of Item Construction due to the user's lack of magus aptitude. Allows one to manufacture items, from implements of war to standard appliances. A modern Servant with little affinity for magecraft, Caster only obtains this Skill by virtue of his class container. At most, he can only manufacture props for his show and several engineering tools. Caster can technically use these items in combat, but combined with his own inexperience, most of these items prove useless in any actual fight. If anything, these tools only serve to help him as an engineer and performer.


    Personal Skills
    Pioneer of the Stars (EX)

    A Skill given to heroes that became turning points in human history. All difficult voyages and challenges which are considered "impossible" turn into "events that can be realized". Credited as the inventor of the first working television, it can be said that Caster was one of the few individuals responsible for kick-starting the information age and further accelerate the rapid decline of mystery in the 20th century. A man who created the basis of a system that would connect the world together, his perseverance is undeniable. He attempted countless trials and errors, and with lack of fame and funding, he resorted to using the most mundane appliances for his initial product. That said, despite the evident proof of his ingenuity, most of Caster's fame came posthumously. This feeds into his mild inferiority complex, believing himself to be nothing more than "a small stepping stone for the march of progress".

    Human Signal (EX)

    A unique variation of Innocent Monster attributed to Caster's association to the concept of "televised broadcasting" itself. Allow's Caster to transform his body into signal and "enter" televisions and other similar broadcasting devices such as computers, laptops, and smartphones... or so it would seem. While outsiders may see this Skill as Caster "entering" the TV, it would be more precise to say that he creates a pseudo-reality marble and connects this realm to the devices via electronic signals, essentially creating his own "channel" of sorts. Unless one is personally invited by Caster or possess the specific ability required to enter this "channel", Caster is effectively untouchable while in "broadcast mode" (though he can't directly interact with his surroundings either). This transforms his agility and endurance parameter to EX for the duration of the "broadcast mode". In this state, his speed is adjusted according to the local network, allowing him to quickly jump between devices and even broadcast himself into multiple devices at once for an increased mana cost. The only way to defeat him in this state would be to isolate his signal using a signal jamming device and destroy the device he's currently in, forcing his physical body to manifest in reality once again.

    Signal Modification (C)

    A Skill denoting Caster's penchant for tinkering with signals. A composite Skill based on two of Caster's feat; first, how he achieved the first transatlantic television transmission between London and New York. Second, how as a child, he rigged up a telephone exchange to connect his bedroom to those of his friends across the street. Allows two functions: the amplification and redirection of signals and similar entities. The amplification, as its name suggests, allows him to increase the range of other area-of-effect Skills such as Charisma and Demonic Defender of the State, up to double the original range. Redirection, meanwhile, allows him to alter the established trajectory of incorporeal forces such as electronic signals, magical energy emitted through leylines, and even beam attacks.

    Weak Constitution (C)

    A weakness struck by the nature of frail health. Caster spent his entire life in poor health. According to him, he lived knowing he was on borrowed time. This greatly motivated him to leave a mark on human history, while at the same time, greatly limited his possibilities, including how he was deemed unfit for service in the first World War, and how it prevented him from devoting even more of his time and well-being to his research and inventions. Caster is accompanied by the risk of a sudden status drop at anytime of every action. The probability is very low, but it gradually increases the more he overworks himself. If triggered mid-combat, the damage suffered could be devastating, on top of Caster's already low parameters.


    Noble Phantasm(s)
    Dawn of the Information Age - Mankind United as One
    To the Open World

    "Behold the Information Age! The death of Mystery as mankind is brought together as one! This is my life's work! The gift that I, John Logie Baird, bestowed upon the advancement of humanity! To the bright, open world! Lights, camera, action! It's SHOWTIME!​"


    Source

    Type: Anti-Populace, Anti-Mystery
    Rank: C
    Range: Varies
    Max Targets: Varies

    A Noble Phantasm embodying the concept of television itself, which Caster invented. A system that connects the world together, sharing both information and emotion to the masses. The best-kept secrets could become common knowledge, and one person's emotions could incite an entire nation's, all in a matter of hours. Symbolizing the death of mystery, upon its activation, all broadcasting devices within the radius of a city surrounding Caster would radiate a powerful, Anti-Mystery energy, turning even a simple smartphone into a deadly weapon against Servants from the distant past. This effect is extremely devastating when used on a modern, densely populated city. For these Servants, the attack would come from literally everywhere and anywhere, and even blocking can only help so much, as their very existences are gradually corroded by the unending march of human progress.

    A second application of this Noble Phantasm embodies the television's power not as a "slayer of mysteries", but as a means of entertainment. Representing how programs could hold sway over their audiences, upon its activation, this Noble Phantasm establishes a connection with countless broadcasting devices within Caster's vicinity and greatly amplifies all emotional reactions felt by the audience. A bit of happiness would become manic euphoria, sadness would become heartrending sorrow, and anger would be enough to incite an angry mob. This effect applies to all channels within the device, both existing ones as well as Caster's own. In a way, perhaps this effect also represents Caster's more cynical outlook on both his inventions and the entire show business; the simple-minded, emotional public couldn't care less for the truth, they only want a good narrative to drive themselves. Befitting of this belief, Caster normally uses this effect to spread misinformation, perform character assassination, and instigate witch hunts, all while maintaining his "TV show host" persona.

    The best way to avoid both of this Noble Phantasm's effects would be to prevent Caster from "connecting" to the local network to begin with, forcing him to maintain his physical form. This can be done through the use of signal jammers, or perhaps more simply, by triggering a thorough, citywide blackout, isolating him from the network.


    Description
    Caster's True Name is John Logie Baird, a Scottish inventor, electrical engineer, and innovator who demonstrated the first working television system.

    At first glance, Caster may seem like a perfect image of a genius: shrewd, somewhat arrogant, yet resilient and innovative. While his snarky and condescending attitude may rub others the wrong way, he truly does possess the ability to excel in almost everything he puts his mind in, which combined with his persistence, makes him an inspirational figure in his own way, though he would shrug off such claims with his usual condescension, claiming that "guiding the masses is a natural duty for the gifted such as myself".

    Due to his penchant for taking up new hobbies and learning new things, perhaps it's unsurprising that not long after summoning, Caster quickly got into TV producing and broadcasting. His independently-made talk and variety show, Chaldea Night Live, quickly became a smash hit (since his only competitions are the BB Channel and the long-running mystery/thriller anthology Alfred Hitchcock Presents). As a TV show host, Caster seemingly exaggerates his personality even further, taking his arrogance and condescension to comical levels, while also prone to making bad extremely puns to entertain his audience (which more often than not would just cause them to facepalm instead). To some extent, this more scummy attitude may stem from the fact that as long as Caster is "inside" the TV, he's effectively invincible and free from the consequences of his own actions. Nonetheless, he actually does possess a keen sense of journalism, showmanship, and curiosity, which demonstrates his more human side and allowed his program to become as famous as it is today. All in all, he's an amazing TV show host, to the point that some may forget that he has no prior experience in showbiz during his lifetime. That said, one can't deny the feeling that Caster is still constantly hiding something underneath his confident smile. It's as if he completely threw away "the inventor" and fully adopted "the TV host".

    Underneath his initial persona, Caster is a deeply insecure individual wishing to leave his mark on the world. Born with a weak constitution, he always knew that he's living on borrowed time and could die at any moment. So he desired to create something worth remembering. This belief is what motivated him throughout his life, continuously working to create something that future generations would remember him for, occasionally to the detriment of his own health. After all, to him, "it's okay to die as long as the future will remember me". Yet despite his best efforts, he lost not due to lack of talent or effort, but simply because an unavoidable lack of resources and connections. Despite creating the first working television system and subsequently, the first color television, his fame was short-lived as his products were quickly rendered obsolete by tech giants of the time, such as the British Marconi-EMI and Edison's General Electric Company. He spent his later years in relative obscurity, considered only as a minor stepping stone in the development of the television, and the Information Age as a whole.

    This experience left him extremely bitter towards what he perceived as "unfair competition", how he lost simply because of something outside his control. He resented his competitors for taking away what he believes to be his life's purpose from him, while also resenting himself for "not trying hard enough". At the same time, he also developed a somewhat cynical outlook on the general public, believing how they couldn't care less about the truth, and only cares for simple narratives crafted by powerful giants such as Edison and Marconi, while those less fortunate could only be swept under the rug, even if they do possess genuine talent. Caster likens this to showbiz, where hard work alone isn't enough; one must also possess riches, connections, and even occasionally stir up drama and conflict to "stay relevant" and not be forgotten. This belief may have influenced his decision to take up TV-hosting, after seeing the fame and connections accrued by those who work in the field. In a way, the talented TV host serves as a way to distance himself from the "plain, forgettable inventor" he once was. Occasionally, Caster's genius inventor side may emerge and he may start working on new inventions, but he tends to suppress this side of himself, not out of resentment, but simply because he believes his inventions still couldn't meet his absurdly high standards, despite how amazing and world-changing they actually are. In order to be remembered, he only wishes to present "the best of the best", and none of his inventions have reached that level (at least according to himself).

    These insecurities and unresolved grudges lead to Caster being an absolute perfectionist, both as an inventor (spending countless hours researching and working on new ideas) and a host (endlessly working on new scripts and rehearsing his program), once again to the detriment of his own health. To him, everything less than perfect is simply unacceptable, and he must do everything within his power to create "something worth remembering" this time around. Upon learning of his posthumous fame, his opinion of himself may improve, but he still tends to sell himself short, believing that he can still come up with something better. In a way, perhaps his initial curiosity, determination, and perseverance as an inventor is still there, buried underneath numerous layers of exaggerated bravado and self-destructive insecurities. With some help, it may still be possible for him to regain his original passion.


    Lore
    John Logie Baird (1888-1946) was a Scottish inventor, electrical engineer, and innovator who demonstrated his working television system on 26 January 1926. He went on to invent the first publicly demonstrated color television system, and the first purely electronic color television picture tube.

    John Logie Baird was born on 14 August 1888 in Helensburgh on the west coast of Scotland, the son of a clergyman. Dogged by ill health for most of his life, he nonetheless showed early signs of ingenuity, rigging up a telephone exchange to connect his bedroom to those of his friends across the street. His studies at the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College were interrupted by the outbreak of World War One. Rejected as unfit for the forces, he served as superintendent engineer of the Clyde Valley Electrical Power Company. When the war ended he set himself up in business, with mixed results.

    Baird then moved to the south coast of England and applied himself to creating a television, a dream of many scientists for decades. His first crude apparatus was made of odds and ends (including an old hatbox, a pair of scissors, some darning needles, a few bicycle light lenses, a used tea chest, sealing wax, and a bottle of glue), but by 1924 he managed to transmit a flickering image across a few feet. On 26 January 1926 he gave the world's first demonstration of true television before 50 scientists in an attic room in central London. In 1927, his television was demonstrated over 438 miles of telephone line between London and Glasgow, and he formed the Baird Television Development Company. (BTDC). In 1928, the BTDC achieved the first transatlantic television transmission between London and New York and the first transmission to a ship in mid-Atlantic. He also gave the first demonstration of both color and stereoscopic television.

    In 1929, the German post office gave him the facilities to develop an experimental television service based on his mechanical system, the only one operable at the time. Sound and vision were initially sent alternately, and only began to be transmitted simultaneously from 1930. However, Baird's mechanical system was rapidly becoming obsolete as electronic systems were developed, chiefly by Marconi-EMI in Britain and the General Electronic Company America. Lacking the fame, resources, and connections required to further develop his own products. Soon after, his system was completely dropped in favor of more advanced televisions. He spent the rest of his life in relative obscurity until he passed away in 1946 due to his lifelong poor health.

    Most of Baird's fame came posthumously. Australian television's Logie Awards were named in his contributions to the invention of the television. In 2006, he was named as one of the 10 greatest Scottish scientists in history, having been listed in the National Library of Scotland's 'Scottish Science Hall of Fame'. In 2014, the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) inducted Logie Baird into The Honor Roll, which "posthumously recognizes individuals who were not awarded Honorary Membership during their lifetimes but whose contributions would have been sufficient to warrant such an honor". In 2015, he was inducted into the Scottish Engineering Hall of Fame. In 2017, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) unveiled a bronze street plaque at 22 Frith Street (Bar Italia), London, dedicated to Baird and the invention of television. Unknown to the man, more than half a decade after his passing, his legacy lived on.

That way of reasoning is just far too simplistic for someone of your caliber! You fail to account for one's preexisting reputation, financial resources, political, social, and economic climate, and a multitude of other factors outside of your control! Things that most of us don't have, no matter how much passion, sincerity, and determination we put into our work! So many of us wanted to be half the man you were, and for you to shamelessly discredit their efforts like that... how on earth is that fair!? How come they see you as an inspiration!?

I don't have any ongoing shows and I'm bored out of my mind at the moment, but I might just give them a read if I feel like it. Don't count on it too much, though. After all, I'm just a TV host, not an inventor."


    Creator's Notes/Fun Facts
    I've usually never been too confident in writing more modern Servants due to their sparse legends, and the challenge to balance them (they should be on the weaker side, but not too weak either), but Caster here turned out unexpectedly well, in my opinion. I sure had fun writing him, especially those onstage lines.

    - As a modern Servant, I tried hard to come up with an interesting gimmick for this guy. I hit a dead-end until I read this manga about idols, and I drew parallels between his desire to be remembered and the nature of showbiz itself. Afterwards, I figured that the two are similar enough, and I might as well tie them together. That's where the idea of him being a TV host came from. Seeing how some Servants are affected by modern trends (such as Sei Shonagon, Sakata Kintoki, and Quetzalcoatl), I suppose it wouldn't be too far-fetched to imagine him this way.

    - In a HGW, his entire strategy basically revolves around using Human Signal and his NP to hide inside TVs and other similar devices, nuke the more powerful/older Servants using the NP's first effect (especially if he's summoned in a bustling, modern city), and use the NP's second effect to sow chaos and eliminate the remaining survivors. While inside the TV, he normally acts as smug and condescending as possible, knowing that pretty much nothing can harm him there. Hopefully no one brings a signal jammer to the fight to drag him out of his safe space.

    - Aside from Edison's patent-hungry ambitions, Caster feels another layer of hatred towards him, simply because he sees a part of himself in him. Both started from nothing and worked hard to create something worthwhile, but while Edison became rich and famous, Caster was quickly forgotten until decades in the future. It's like seeing a different, more successful version of yourself, knowing you can't be that person.

    - The desire for fame alone is usually a pretty shallow motivation for a character, but hopefully I managed to flesh it out better by tying it with his weak constitution. Knowing your life is fleeting and could end at any moment, of course you'd want to leave a lasting legacy to the world.

    - If you haven't caught it yet, each of his onstage lines referenced a certain popular TV show:
    * Voyager --> Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader
    * Nero, Elizabeth, and Jirocho --> MTV music programs
    * Frances, Moriarty, Ibaraki --> Criminal Minds and Mindhunters

    - I imagine him having a shrewd ikemen voice off-stage, and having the exaggerated, comedic Kaguya-sama narrator voice whenever he's onstage.

    Yeah he's not the strongest servant, he's just very fast and even then he has little control of his momentum. Also that depiction of Daedalus is more in-line with the original myth. Greek hero brought low by hubris, fatal flaw and all that.

Also question do we even know if the old table (the prototype knights of the round existing during Uther's time which had Brunor Le Noir's father (Brunor the brown, the dragon knight [the guy who at 120 beat Arthur, Palamedes, Lancelot, and Gawain all in jousts]) even exists in Nasuverse?
    To my knowledge no, there's no official timeline or anything in that regards.

    But because I was curious as well, I decided to compile a rough framework detailing what has been officially stated as well as things we can infer from other official stuff.

    Take With A Grain Of Salt

    Pre-Kingship:
    • (Unspecified Time) Morgan Le Fay is born to Uther Pendragon, the King of Britain and an unknown woman.
    • Uther impregnates Igraine who then gives birth to Artoria per Merlin's prophecy.
    • As part of the deal, baby Artoria is sent away to be raised by Sir Ector alongside Kay.
    • Caliburn, the Sword in the Stone appears to herald the selection of the Rightful Heir to Uther Pendragon (who has presumably died?). Artoria pulls Caliburn out of the Stone and becomes King.


    Ten Years of Victory:
    • (Unspecified Time) Artoria marries Princess Guinevere in a political union to bring about stability in Britain.
    • (Inference) Sir Balin joins Artoria's retinue but dies mere weeks later in a battle with Balan, leaving behind his sword that Galahad Alter eventually uses.
    • The Knights of the Round Table are formed with Bedivere being the first member. Gawain and Kay join at some point afterwards.
    • (Inference) Artoria defeats and kills the demonic boar Twrch Trwyth as part of the many trials of Culhwch.
    • The other members of the Round Table filter in - including Sir Ywain who departs the group later. Notably Agravain was installed into the group as an assassin by Morgan le Fay.
    • (Unspecified Time) Proto-verse's Arthur battles the Questing Beast and notices that it has been injured previously by Sir Palamedes.
    • Artoria engages in battle (presumably with King Pellinore) and Caliburn is broken as a result of Morgan Le Fay's machinations. Artoria is then given Excalibur by Lady of the Lake, Vivian. (Presumably Excalibur-Galatine is given to Gawain here as well).
    • Vortigern tries to usurp the throne from Artoria and engages in a battle with her and Gawain by transforming into the "avatar of Britain" after drinking the blood of a dragon. He is ultimately defeated after Artoria pierces his heart with Rhongomyniad.


    The Downfall of the Kingdom:
    • (Unspecified Time) Merlin transforms Artoria into a pseudo-male in order to extract sperm to create an heir. Whilst in this state, she is enchanted by Morgan who steals the sperm and later uses it to create the homunculus Mordred.
    • Percival, Galahad, Mordred, Gaheris and Gareth all join the Round Table Knights. Gareth in particular is known to have been an esquire serving under Lancelot previously.
    • Declaring "the King does not understand the hearts of men", Tristan departs the Round Table. Afterwards he dies alongside his love Iseult.
    • The secret affair between Lancelot and Queen Guinevere begins.
    • The Grail Quest occurs upon which Percival lays to rest the immortal Witch Kundry and retrieves the Holy Spear. Likewise Galahad obtains the Holy Grail but returns it to Heaven (and maybe ascends there himself?).
    • Agravain discovers the affair between Lancelot and the Queen and exposes it to the public, upon which the Queen is arrested and ordered to be executed.
    • During the rescue attempt of the Queen, Lancelot kills both Gaheris and Gareth. The pair then flee back to Lancelot's domain of France alongside some allies.
    • The Roman Expedition begins in which Artoria is away from Britain. Proto-verse's Arthur engages with the Roman Emperor Lucius Tiberius and kills him in battle, thus becoming the ruler of Rome.
    • Mordred who was spurned by rejection after revealing her identity to Artoria launches an insurrection to take the throne whilst she is gone.
    • Upon returning to Britain, the Scabbard Avalon is stolen by Morgan Le Fay.
    • The Battle of Camlann occurs. Lancelot is prevented from returning to help by Gawain who himself is struck down by Mordred. Artoria retaliates by killing Mordred but is fatally wounded in return.
    • Bedivere carries Artoria away whereby she instructs him to return Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake and he eventually complies. Artoria is taken to Avalon to sleep as the "once and future king".
    • (Unspecified Time) Morgan entrusts both of the weapons "Add" and "Erosion" to Gray's village.
    • (Unspecified Time) Merlin is said to have helped the Paladins of Charlemagne before being caught in the "Tower of Avalon" as part of a trap by the Lady of the Lake, Vivian.


    Phew, I think that's everything - well, apart from minor tidbits like Richard mentioning Pelleas existing but we don't know anything other about how he fits in. Feel free to point out anything (major) I missed.

    John Logie Baird: "Tonight, on Chaldea Night Live, EMIYA tells all about his tragic past, special guest band Kirei and the Servants keeps us all alert with a new brand of metal, and we ask Artoria the question that's been on everybody's mind 'Which did she prefer? An innie, or an outie?' All this and more right up after this commercial break. Sponsored by Caster Flakes: Taste the Magic!"
    Not sure on Byakuya for a FC, but he's a very interesting non-combative Servant from a person I didn't even know existed. A good job, though I think the description could be cut down a bit, but that's just me.

    Vortigern the Usurper: It's a good sheet, but there are a few issues with it. The main one is that it is borderline if not flat out impossible for Berserker to support itself with only mana. As pointed out in Fate Stay Night; mana is not unlimited, the area holding the grail in the 5th holy grail war, and entire massive cavern beneath a mountain only held around 1000 units of mana and if drain it was described that it would take weeks or months to replenish that amount. Dragons are not perpetual motion machines and cannot simply survive "no matter what" there is a reason why even with her dragon core active Artoria still needs a master, there is a reason why when the decline in mystery occurred that dragons began to retreat to the reverse side of the world (and those that didn't died), when the age of mystery began to decline so did the amount of mana in the world (something pointed out by comparing the time it takes Saber of Black to charge his sword versus Seigfired when he was alive [which due to the world having much more mana back then he could simply siphon it in and charge his sword faster than as a servant]).

    The best way I can put it is that dragon cores generate heir own energy to survive, but it isn't enough to supplant the need for mana from the outside world, hypothetically if a dragon needed 5000 units of energy to survive for one week and their core could provide 3000, it's still up to them to rely on absorbing mana to obtain the remaining 2000 units of energy that week to continue living. Thus when mystery (and by proxy mana started declining [as well as the rate at which mana replenished itself in an area potentially declining]) then dragons had no way to survive and thus had to leave. Put bluntly the amount of mana most of the modern world would have would not be enough to keep Berserker alive without a master, especially so considering that if he stayed in place after he drained all the mana in it, then it would take weeks to recharge (and unless he can tap into a ley line [which even they have limits]) then he would deprive himself of mana and dissipate without mana to remain unless he was being supported by Gaia with some sort of contract.





    True that. Is there a timeline or something for the Artoria stuff in Fate, trying to fit where stuff like most of Galahad's story doesn't mesh well with me mentally (I think it went something like Tristan's rebuke and leaving her -> Lancelot's betray -> Modred's rebellion -> death [with Tristan dying before Modred's rebellion as I don't think he was there for that]; but trying to place when things like the holy grail quest and when that happened, the battle with Vortigern, when specific members of the knights of the round joined her [and how old they may by proxy] is something I have never been able to nail down well either in the original stories or in Nasu). Also question do we even know if the old table (the prototype knights of the round existing during Uther's time which had Brunor Le Noir's father (Brunor the brown, the dragon knight [the guy who at 120 beat Arthur, Palamedes, Lancelot, and Gawain all in jousts]) even exists in Nasuverse?





    Fair enough, I can get wanting to give a guy a sword and wanting to explain where caliburn came from, I always liked to think it was a mystic code made by the fey and gifted to Merlin, and prior to Excalibur having been retconned into even more story importance and tied into Sefar's defeat I had my own theory regarding it. In Nasu's works it's said that Caliburns true power can only be drawn out when it's user has become the true king worthy of it and a link exists between Caliburn and Excalibur (modern scholars think they were actually the same sword) and we know Caliburn was broken and that Excalibur Galantine and Arondight were called sister swords to Excalibur. Based on all that my old theory is that when caliburn broke it was reforged by the fey into Excalibur and that either some of its parts were used to make Excalibur Galantine and Arondight (thus making them essentially all deriving from the same parent weapons, siblings of a sort) or that Excalibur Galantine and Arondight were created in parallel with Caliburn being reforged into excalibur, thus being sister weapons in that they were given to Artoria and her two greatest knights and were made at roughly the same time.

    As for Crocea Mors (if you are talking about real life), don't get your hopes up on that end there are a couple factors which make it fairly unlikely (the first of them is that even if the sword is real we don't know fully where to start looking for it) that we will ever find it or that if we do it may even be a sword anymore. Considering that the romans likely had some amount of Iron from the conquest of Etruscans and learning of their Iron Age or that it may have been combed with carbon to make some rudimentary form of steel that means the blade would rust and corrode left to the elements, and rust doesn't just effect a weapon's surface it goes deep and penetrates deeper and deeper into the metal, if it were left lying around it would be so rusted that it likely may or may not have all but disintegrated due to the elements and such (or possibly been swept into the sea if it got caught up in a river). This even assumes it was left untouched which is fairly improbable, based on examinations of old battlefields we have generally found that most soldiers and armies would scavenge armor and weapons from their foe (likely both to deprive any opposing forces from taking the weapons to use against them, to develop a surplus of weapons and armor, and also if they could melt down some of the metal then they could forge new weapons and armor or other items [and anything they missed would have likely been scavenged by looters long before we came to dig up those battlefields]) which make this improbable. For all we know the real Crocea Mors may have been melted down into another weapon or even perhaps turned into coins after being broken centuries ago and thus may never be found. If you are talking about Nasu's world knowing mages someone probably has that thing lying around somewhere if only to brag that they have it.




    I was not aware of the legal trouble with Armstrong, but I did recall Fate: Extra's world was ahead of the others by some amount (it surprises me they were willing to do Voyager if they got into that legal trouble before). I definitely can understand that limitation, having people's legends still grow and evolve over time does make it hard to do modern servants. As for the servant verse I generally like it as it tends to embrace some of the silliness in fate (The Picts possibly being alines, Merlin and Yoshitsune's mentor knowing each other, the Olympians being saint Mecha space gods, etc.) revels in it.


    About the Unlimited Mana and the Phantasmal would you say it is nasuverse wise possible that there are few phantasmal beast that are still on the from the human inhabited side orf the world . like that the modern cryptids could after nasuverse be phantasmal Relict beings like the Himalayan Yeti types ,or the Chupacabra ? respectively the alleged Living dinosaurs like the african Mkole-mbembe , the Kongamato example wise ? or what otherNsuverse Explanation Options could be possible ?

    Caster Baird: I always admire your talent of crafting characters. he is so layered and well thought out as a person. A great addition to your BnEl-verse of Chaldea. I was surprised when I did not see any WandaVision inspirations in there. And I hope his cocky attitude wont bring a certain scene from a certain Joacquin Phoenix movie into his show.
