    Wait. There's a fanfic ideas thread? Wait. Of course there would be. Ugh. Whoops. Sorry. I just thought it'd be fine to talk about the idea here since Osrio did it several times for his fic ideas and no one pointed it out then. Um... Now that begs the question of should I leave my post here as is or edit/delete it... ...nah, I'll leave it alone until someone says otherwise while I copy-paste it to the fic ideas thread.

    Doing the Relationships section of a Servant again and I have to ask, are there any other canon Servants that have a special chariot like Iskandar?

    Huh, already had Boobica for other reasons but Achilles is definitely a good shout for what I was looking for.

    Danke~

    Is it bad writing if I have a character tell an important lie during a dialogue-only chapter? I'm concerned that if I don't drop enough cues that Character A was fibbing, it'll be unfair to the audience? Especially if the only other character in the scene, Character B, mistakenly claims early on that they've made it so Character A is currently unable to lie. Although the possibility is set up in the chapter immediately preceding this one that Character B's magecraft is completely ineffective on Character A unless Character A chooses to go along with it (Character B does not know this).

    But I'm pretty sure I want to do dialogue-only, sans quotation marks for the chapter in mind because it's essentially someone's intake, and doing something different stylistically is probably the most fun way for me to write it and for people to read what's a whole lot of back and forth. And it seems like a nice way to demonstrate that experience is a weird an alienating one.

    It'd be pretty clear it's dialogue-only and if you're not establishing an omniscient POV, it's fair game. Recommended order of reveals - Character A is confirmed resistant to Magecraft B → thing happens that contradicts Statement A → "I lied "

    I'm curious to know something, how do people here feel about Servants that don't fully cross the threshold into Double Summon, but instead blur the lines between Classes for one reason or another - like how Serenity has Independent Action as an Assassin or Lartoria having Riding as a Lancer.

    Frankly, I don't mind it, especially with those two as examples- Riding's second to only what, Magic Resistance in distribution? And IA just sorta compliments her existing abilities to me- Eresh with her territory creation is another I like.

    Overall, I'd rather the variety we get to have than super-rigid class lines

    Depends perhaps if the other class is actually conceptually strong enough to stand on its own feet. If yes, the crossover might not be needed. Its a case by case basis.

    Quick question: How do you redact text in BBCode?
    By redact, I mean when text is covered up by a black bar if anyone was wondering.

    Do you mean like Heracles' roar-text? I don't know how to make that, I just copypaste it from a source whenever I want to use it.

    If you mean like █████, it's not BBcode, it's symbols you can type anywhere using Alt + the number pad
    █ is Alt+219

    Been studying historical Miyamoto Iori for fanfic purpose, and honestly surprised that no mention of Terao Brothers whatsoever both in FGO and in FSR. Their background could've provided more depths to Musashi, the PHH version at least. They could even potentially be summoned as two people in a single Class like Anne & Mary , too. Reading further, FSR Iori seems to be amalgamation of both of them than based on the historical Iori. Would've been fun for worldbuilding too.

    I want to try making a Servant, but I haven't quite thought of what to give him for skills, NPs, and the like. If anyone else wants to help flesh it out, I'm happy to share the credit with them and can add them here as edits. Here's what I do have for him:

    (No picture, cannot draw and only extant images don't seem like good fits)
    Class: Saber
    Other Classes: N/A
    True Name: Ivaylo of Bulgaria (Ivaylo Bardovka, Ivaylo Lakhanas, Ivaylo the Cabbage)
    Alignment: Chaotic Good
    Origin: Bulgaria, 13th Century
    Stars: 2*

    Parameters:

    STR: C
    END: D
    AGI: D
    MGI: E
    LCK: D+
    NP: D

    Class Skills

    Riding: C-
    As a peasant, Ivaylo can ride a horse but struggles to handle other animals or vehicles.

    Magic Resistance: D

    Personal Skills

    Charisma: B-
    While especially effective among the lowly, poor, and downtrodden, Ivaylo's Charisma is ineffective on those who are wealthy or are of a noble heritage.

    (Have yet to decide on others; perhaps one based on how the boyars would not open the gates of Tarnovo to Ivaylo and made George Terter emperor instead? That sounds like it would have a negative effect, but can't say how it would benefit him if it benefits him at all)

    Likes:
    Dislikes: Treacherous nobles
    Talent: Herding pigs
    Natural Enemy: Ivan Asen III, George Terter
    Attribute: Man
    Traits: Humanoid, Male, Weak to Enuma Elish, King
    Armament: Sword


    Noble Phantasm:

    (TBD)

    (Unsure what to put here; his main legend was becoming an Emperor at all, but I don't know how to spin that as a NP)

    Relationships:

    Spartacus: "I may have been called an emperor for a time, but I too am a rebel."

    (Maybe something for Constantine? Not sure yet.)

    If the crux of his legend is his ascension, then ny first thought is to make him start out as a regular guy and have his Noble Phantasm give him a buff, like a sort of "king form".

    I was just looking at some myth stuff and I remembered that in Korean mythology, the Imoogi is a giant serpent that becomes a dragon through a certain means; in some sources this is through living for living for one thousand years, in others it is by catching a dragon's orb dropped from the skies.

    It turns out that the idea of 'a serpent / snake becoming a dragon' exists in numerous cultures, most notably in China, Japan, and the Slavic countries as well as Korea.

    As such, I've been wondering: How would the transformation work in the Nasuverse? Would the serpent become a sort of 'False Dragon'?

    Well, I'd probably look for example where the resulting "dragon" is remarked upon/worshipped- should they be treated as such, I'd say they count as a real one. To me, it's like a mortal ascending to godhood.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Granted- I certainly wouldn't rank them as highly as a naturally-occurring one unless they say, took a bunch of those dragon orbs, but to me, I see no no issue in them being accepted as truly draconic.
