    That's a bad take. Putting everything else aside, Medusa riding Pegasus because it's her child is an inspired idea.

    Speaking of which since you shared your HGW idea. I want to share mine that is still rusting away in the deepest vault of my mind.

    That HGW idea is that of the will/ torch of humanity basically that humanity is almost wiped out and in the future era so a ship carrying a prototype seed of a tree of emptiness type of deal to a planet far away so it can carry on its will. Though the 7 members of the spaceship crew have different ideas on what the most important ideal will of humanity is and wanted to shape the tree of emptiness so it can produce a texture in the new world that is similar to or an exact of their ideal world. There is also a hidden traitor/Beast that wanted to extinguish this last fleeting hope of humanity. So it traps the crewmates in a virtual matrix of the spaceship. Like a Moon Cell lite of you will to conduct its scheme by erasing their memories of each other and having them fight each other in a Holy Grail War. Once they kill each other, the traitor will bring forward the ideal world of the Beast's mind.

    So what do you guys think any loopholes or contrivances that I need to look out for

    Actually, a fate fanfic I always wanted to do was a SCp crossover, either with Scp fans being drawn into the war or the actual foundation discovering the war and getting involved. Which idea sounds better?

    As for loopholes/contrivances though, the big one off the top of my head would to HARD avoid any "my ideal world is a world that is dead and nonexistant for i am a nihilist, mwhahahaha!" or "My ideal world has ONLY ME, ALONE" and such. If these are 7 people who have been chosen to start a new world, a new homeland for humanity, then they should logically be people more focused on actually, y'know, creating that reality, rather than, "I am the bad guy teehee". Plus, having 7 different plans that would work (the best one being decided by the reader's own philosophy) is something that I think would make for a really interesting story.

    For adherence to the rules, having an anomaly within the SCP universe that functions like the Grail in fate would work better, as a vast majority of the SCP universe would not be able to exist within fate, and just having SCP fans in a grail war wouldn't influence much, as SCP's wouldn't have enough legendary weight to manifest... if you follow cannon rules.

    Yeah. That’s why I thought the foundation being canon would work. Most of their lore (Mekhane, etc) wouldn’t be summonable, but the foundation would be helping preserve mystery. Making an official skip entry to the HGW wouldn’t fly at all tho

    - - - Updated - - -

    And the two irganizations fighting would be fun. I’m imagining the foundation backing someone entering the war / trying to infiltrate it. Meanwhile they’re studying magecraft like nobody’s business

    I think it could be a fun idea

    Thanks there is actually two ideal worlds that I have thought about and it relates to the master and servant pairings.

    The first one that I came up with is the idyllic escapist fantasy. In which the servant is Lancer the so-called Saracen Knight Marfisa. I choose her for this role since I want to invoke a bit of Traum with this and have her rather unique situation that isn't yet fully explore in Fate which is the perception of one culture towards others in Marifisa's case being created by French writers to describe the exotic nature of the middle east and make like caricatures from it. So being a creation of it Marfisa would feel isolated in real history since her story would be looked down upon by the to sides of the culture one being a lower class culture by the west and by the east/Islamic culture nothing more than a mockery of their culture so her ideal world is that where her idyllic fantasy of the Matter of France. I also envision her to be a pseudo servant and her master is related to the other body and a bit slight warning on pseudo-incest.

    The Other one that I conjured up is the world without death envisioned by a nurse taking care of the many sick and dying at the end of the world and the many sorrows that it brings. This one is much simpler as it said she was well sick of seeing all the suffering that death brings so she wanted a world without it so her servant would be Archer or Archers since they going to be the Mayan Hero Twins who face off against the lords of deaths so they won't bother the living in their myths.

    The rest I am still working on it

    Huh... psedu incest aside, those two sound like very interesting concepts. If the others follow suit, this would definitely be a fantastic read. I do wonder if having both of the brothers wouldn't be a bit too powerful, but saying they have to share a container weakens them could balance that.

    Or their a force you have to beat with guile rather than power. Regardless, seems good so far.

    Yeah, I'd have to agree, those sound like solid concepts- can't wait to hear about the rest

    Unrelated, but do you all have any advice on choosing candidates for Rulers? I'm working on some Holy Rail War concepts, and I wanted to create the framework of The Train and it's conductors/the two servants enforcing the rules before I got too far into rules and specifics. One is of course my Binder, Sir Sanford Fleming, but I was intending to make the other a Ruler, as the framework for the Holy Rail War death game is ofc based off an irregular grail war- thus warranting a ruler to enforce the rules. I'm feeling they should serve more as the striker of the pair, Fleming's kit being focused on support and control-

    So I guess my question is- what types of figures would you all recommend looking at for a more proactive style of ruler, and should I use Ruler for the position at all, or switch to another class for the job?

    I mean, Link's Karl de Gross proves you can have a very active ruler, so ruler should be fine. However, as for choosing them... that's a bit more abstract. It focuses on impartial agents who, usually, don't have a wish for the grail(Amakusa is an example of when that isn't the case). I'd think that the normal pool of saints actually has a fair few candidates that would lend themselves to high activity. Other than that... literal judges from the judicial systems, especially those that had big impacts on the laws of countries would be another resource. Finally, 'fairytale prince' type characters, who are shown to be very active, but also very 'perfect', to an almost inhuman degree, could be another source.

    Alright, I found the next two would be Assassin's team is focused on the truth that they wish for a world with only truths and facts in this new world. The only will of remnants of humanity that should truth that lies of any kind would be purged in this new world. The candidate, I was thinking of for the role of Assassin is Zhu Yuanzhang of the Hongwu Emperor. Famous for his secret police and his attitude toward truth and self-reliance and an extremely wary view of others.

    For the Master, I was thinking of a declining magus family head that was told wonders of exaggerated ancient stories about their accomplishments only to have it fall before her eyes when they and they're suppose magus family allies lied and backstab each other until there was barely anything left. So, she only tells the truth and is 100% honest all the time. Even when it might seem to jeopardize her plans though unlike Assassin the master would be easily more trusting when she senses a good quality in a person.

    Then there is the idea of Freedom and Equality in a sense letting Magic and Magecraft no longer be hidden and be able to roam free happy helping out the mundane people. Let mystery run the world once more, the Magus here is a naïve boy that often helps villages nearby with his magecraft though the villagers curse him and brand him a devil. Though the other children are fond of him. He bares their anger and fear since in a weird way he thought of them as his family since he was never really around since they have their heads stuck in their research at the clock tower. Though one day before it went south the Church immediately seized and lock the man up and only took him away from the few friends and family he knew. When ask why he wasn't allowed to show magecraft or use it to teach, play or even just help with the people. They just say that is the way of the world and that only left him to be more confused.

    This one can be either Caster or Berserker. One idea I have for this world slot is Calon Arang. The witch of Bali whose magic created a fostering community that was seen by many people nearby as dark magic and act very cult-like since their worship of the Dark Goddess Durga. They communicated with many spirits to do their bidding to bolster and strengthen their community. She has many great disciples that follow her teachings with the Berserker from being closer to the spirit of Rangda that she originates from and taking a similar nature and attitude that of Morgan from LB 6 though she more thought of her master as her son.

    So the only ones that still elude me are Rider and What either Caster or Berserker since Saber is going to be the protag's servant

    Ok to be fair, Amakusa is an exception in every sense of the word for Rulers. He only showed up as a Ruler despite having negative qualifications due to the Einzberns forcing him into the Ruler container, instead of summoning whoever as a Berserker, or Angra as an Avenger.
    But on the whole, it's essentially as you said. Impartial agents who can preside over the Grail War without bias to any side. That's the core of the class. The Holy Grail will always select a (canonised) Saint because it's a "western, Christian artefact", or modeled upon one at least (Amakusa is an uncanonised saint in Japan, which would usually mean he's disqualified, but the Grail considered him "close enough" because he's such a popular martyr in Japanese Christianity, so he got shoved into the container). In systems where the Holy Grail isn't involved, that restriction vanishes, which allows all manner of Rulers (impartial detectives, the greatest crime lord, fairy queens detached from mankind, Caren) as long as they have no wish for the Grail.

    None of the qualifications even slightly relate to not being active, but rather relate to impartiality. Or rather, a Ruler needs to be active, otherwise they can't manage the Grail War and ensure the rules are being upheld, which is their highest duty in a Grail War scenario.

    Hoho, as the guy who does the most Bakumatsu/Meiji-era figures in this forum, this might be helpful...

    Also, isn't canon Ryoma/Oryo already from PHH? In-universe, I'm guessing the human Narasaki Ryo just... doesn't exist, I suppose.

    Ryouma and Oryou come from the worldtype of GudaGuda, which isn't quite the same as "normal" PHH worlds. There are some details about history and mythology, especially about Ame-no-Nuhoko, the gods of Japan, and especially Oryou's whole existence, that contradict the "normal" world.

    To quote (my own) translation directly:

    I know it's a small detail, but it's something that other works will have to take into account, so I'll be quite satisfied if you can read this and go "wow!"

    Mr. Keikenchi spoke about the GudaGuda Hurries(? ハリーズ possibly a typo of Series シリーズ) in "Koha-Ace", but that was a long time ago, so I'll give you some new annotations to work with.
    The GudaGuda series was originally a spin-off of Fate... instead of being a parallel work, some parts of its very origins are different from those in Fate worlds.
    A particularly large difference is in the relationships "in regards to Nobunaga (including Tenkai) and Himiko, Guadians of the Deterrent, and Sakamoto Ryouma & Oryou-san".
    When I was consulted about the situation about Oryou-san, I said "These origins are a bit too different to be from a Fate world, but their relationship is so beautiful, so you've got my OK!"
    So even if the truth of Oryou-san is like that, please remember that it's an existence that's different in Fate worlds.
    Just like the Servant Universe, the mythological setting of ancient Japan in GudaGuda Worlds is a bit different from that of the stories in mainstream Type-Moon works.

    What kind of powers would a Caster class servant with the legend of “Robber Baron” have
    Also, what kind of powers would conceptual angel Gabriel representing the mathematical thought experiment of Gabriel’s Horn?
