Since there's no rules set in stone yet, that's all still open for changing. :) This is part of why I didn't define any specific Grail War or lay down how this Grail War would work just yet- I ultimately wanted what would be the best role playing experience with this setup, which I decided to help determine with feedback in this thread.

So yup, all possible Grail Wars are being considered as either playable or inspiration for a more freeform War at this point. :) The Assassin thing might happen for sure so the Assassin players have a lot more choice for who they can play as. The "clergyman admin" thing is also open for change, but what form that would take would probably depend on the ultimate layout and setting for the war itself.

Also, welcome to the forum and the RP! :D In the OP you go. :3

Seriously Assassin is the only cool servant, fuck big fights I'll stick to shadows

Mags said that he's doing a lottery setup. If you luck out and have an appropriate focus for the summoning, you get who/what you want.

Otherwise, HEART OF THE CARDS.

THEN I will make a really sucky servant if I don't get assassin and end up having to hide in shadows instead of stalk from them.

The power of flexible thinking~

And I'll make (not)solid snake if I get a master

Presumably the choice of servants is down to the person playing that servant, though.

Unless he's conspiring with a gaggle of history/mythology students to make a huge roulette with every possible servant ever, I'd say that's the case.

I'd imagine he has to give the thumbs up though, so no counter guardian Dave from the year 2167 from when he made a contract with Alaya to fight Aliens with nothing but his fists and a toaster.

Yep. This is also because I'm not sure we'll reach 14 people in any reasonable amount of time. We've got six at the moment, enough for masters. While Alice's goal is very good, and something I'd like to explore sometime, this isn't the best forum to do so.  Instead, the plan is we'll make everyone a Servant and a Master... but not their own master Servant pair.

As is I'll be taking sheet submissions for every class, along with making my own. I'm hoping to get at least 35 servants, 5 from every class. I'll basically from there do a hero roullete style thing. This way, we get a large variety of possibilities, and makes the actual servant selection something you have to guess at... though I'll throw in a group of artifacts to select from if you so wish to take one and not trust your destiny to fate's fickle rolls.

Huh so you could be both your ally and your enemy what a weird but interesting way to do things.

Question, how do you plan on preventing the RP from stalling out like what has happened with so many other grail war rp's?

Mags is one of those nWoD players who goes on and on about the various games, so I simply suggested something that would fit w/ that kind of background.

Well, the easiest way would be something I'm keeping hidden up my sleeve, along with the setting.


Get those servant sheets going folks, because I've got a load of surprises in store for you~

So did you have a Master and/or Servant Sheet premade or do you just want us to use whatever we feel like?
