[Reddit][GM4A] Fate/Successions, a Fate RP
Hello, everyone! Today, I come to you with a very simple premise: a Fate RP. Or, more specifically, I would love to GM a Holy Grail War, in which you play one of the seven competing Masters that seek the Holy Grail.
Do you think you have what it takes to step up and onto the field of war? Then read on!
Masters Every Master is so selected because of their links and ties to the larger magical community. Whether this selection is intentional or accidental, it plays a large part in their role in the Holy Grail War.
Who is your Master? What's their age, gender, and their background? Why are they fighting in this war? Whom are they fighting for, and whose interests do they have above all else, regardless of their involvement in this conflict?
Magic No Master is expected to survive without either a firm knowledge of magecraft, or a hefty amount of luck. Magic, however, is a touchy and complicated subject, whose workings I'd rather we not delve into right now. Regardless, you do need to have some form of magic (you can opt not to, but I figure you might want to).
Pick a simple magical framework for us to work with! It has to be easy to understand and simple to set up. Otherwise, we can default to a D&D-inspired magical system. Pick a class and a background from D&D 5E, and optionally, pick a particular subclass. While we won't be using dice rolls for this RP, it'll serve as a strong baseline to work your magic off of. Warlock? You have an entire list of what you can do! A fighter? Well, then you're very good with swords, and you may just be able to do something more than swing them around!
Servants As a participant in the Holy Grail War, you cannot go at it alone. No, you're paired up with one of seven Heroic Spirits, each with their own agendas and motives, but ultimately mostly deferring to you throughout the course of the war.
Let me know if there's any particular class (choose from the standard seven!) you want to RP alongside, and if there's a particular Servant you want to fight alongside! Fair note, I am horrible at playing males, so I'd appreciate if you let me stick to what I know!
I'm expecting it to be a relatively simple RP. This will be a completely SFW RP, so while romance and adult themes may come up, anything mature will be fade-to-black.
I'm a novella-style writer, and I'd like for my partner to be able to do the same. I would say an average of three paragraphs or fifteen sentences per reply would be good, though I completely acknowledge that reply length will vary depending on the situation. Perfectly fine, so long as I'm not getting one-liners, and grammar and punctuation are adhered to for the most part.
I'm in the GMT+8 timezone, and I will be expecting this to be a longform RP over Reddit. There will be zero dice rolls in the RP, and I'm hoping to mostly focus on the relationships between characters - you and your Servant, and the others in and out of the Grail War.
I hope this piqued your interest and I look forward to hearing from you!
