I'm surprised that the Magus in the later wars didn't result in being like the inbreds from the Wrong Turn franchise.

So I had decided to make a Europa Universalis IV mod in which a 1444 game start has an independent Wales led by one Knight-King Arturia Pendragon, who has awakened from a 1000-year-long slumber to save the last remnants of the original Briton people (i.e. the Welsh) and united the British Isles under her rule, before turning her eyes towards the greater world around her country.

My greatest lament is that I can't plaster a pic of Arturia in the monarch interface box.

So... For anyone who has the least bit of actual knowledge of Europa Universalis IV, or at least is willing to read about just to help out, I'm kinda stuck on what National Ideas (both common and unique) would be fitting for my Arthurian Britain.

Finally wrote up a new Fate/EMIYA chapter. For those who care.
Otherarrow: I don't think it's explicitly stated in the game, but it is definitely stated in one of the side material books.

Rob: I think Zouken was originally reasonably smart, if somewhat morally dubious. He's just decayed a hell of a lot since then.

Servants who Never Should be Summoned.

Berserker.

The golden Archer laughed thunderously as the small pink creature trotted on all fours towards him, with a bright happy smile.

"What a jest! This is what you would send after the King of Heroes? This is too good a joke to count as an insult, mongrel, but even so, as an opponent even if only in name, don't think your life will be spared..."

Kariya sighed wearily. His Servant had, so far, supplied him with sights more horrendous than anything Zouken ever could have managed to display, but still, she was his only choice, his only path left. "Berserker, " he said. "Befriend him."

The pink quadrupedal creature began singing sweetly, "Smile...! Come on and smile...! Come on and smile! Smile...! My name is Berserker Pie, and I'm here to say, I'm going to make you smile, and I'll brighten up your day...! It doesn't matter now if you're sad or blue, 'cuz cheering up my friends is just what I'm here to do!"

And she jumped up with a mighty kick on the laughing Gilgamesh's face.

What followed was too terrible for me to describe it.

—-

"These... are good, very good cupcakes, " Sakura admitted softly, and the evil worms agreed. "What are they made of?"

Kariya tried his best to smile. "Dreams and hopes, Sakura-chan. Dreams and hopes."

"And human flesh!" Berserker piped in happily.

Sakura kept on chewing, very quietly. "I think... I like you..."

Inspired by this. (DISTURBING content, CREEPY AS F**K- You were warned):

... Does the maker of this video happen to be a member of the MLP:FIM character design team? Because they looked so authentically canon-style in design.

So here's weird idea:

Einzbern family tries to create Grail, but just like in Canon fail.

That is until they meet a strange family called the Ainsworth. Said Ainsworths are still from an alternate world, but have hit a snag in their own war, so through unknown means have travelled to this one and enlist the aid of their Alternates in the Einzbern family for the mutual benefit of both.

The two groups work together to create the grail, but meet the same problem as in the canon series (only one wish), so Grail war time bitches!

However, due to the higher quality of their created grail (since both groups have been researching it for years), they are able to summon two sets of servants each. So two Riders, two Sabers, etc.

Also, The two families each make use of their own respective methods; this means we have the both the servants and the Class cards.

I'm still ironing out some fine details, but I'm thinking that in order to work around the fact that the Einzberns would still be missing some elements to even try and create a grail, they'll actually allow members from other families to marry into them (namely the Tohsaka and the Matou / Makiri).

So basically a Family Feud between the two big bads of two different Fate stories.

So the fuck up family vs the rip-of fuck up family?

This should totally end with both sides getting destroyed.

.....

You know, I can't say I disagree with you on that one.

Though I hold the Ainsworths in a higher regard, but that's only because I haven't seen them screw up yet (they seem much more competent than the Einzbern however).

Einzberns- less competent than the bad guys from magical girl spin-off show.

That's just sad.

Well, at least the Einzberns (via their representatives) ultimately managed to succeed in one thing: Being the sacrificial lion for how things could get much worse via introduction of a new uber-powerful game-broken villain.

Oh how I wish Gil would just bust out Ea and end all of this nonsense.

Oh wait, that won't work since he's nerfed as hell.

Well, nerfing the guy that can one-shot anything in his way seems like a sensible maneuver.

He wasn't nerfed for CCC (not even by the Class system) and he's known as Easymode for that game...

...

I still kind of want a Lancer...

A real Lancer. Erzsebeth is a fake Lancer, ain't she?

She is listed as Lancer when she is your Servant, so she counts.

She also appears as a Berserker and that fight is the last one against her.

I know, but how does that make her a fake Lancer? That's like saying "Li Shuwen can be summoned as a Lancer, so he is a fake Assassin".

IIRC, she was originally summoned as Lil' Ronnie's Berserker, wasn't she? That's why I'm saying she's a fake Lancer. It's not her real class.

Nope. We are told that she is summoned as Little Ronnie's Servant, but her class is never specified, and we have no reason to assume it was changed between summoning and the game itself. Also, her class change doesn't seem to be artificially/unnaturally done like Zombie-Assassin-Berserker, it's just that under a different master, she was put in a different class (and even if it was unnaturally done, that would mean that Berserker would be the "fake" class, as that is the one she is altered to fit into)

It's been a while since I read it on the spoilers thread, I guess I could recall it wrong.

Unfortunately, feet are being dragged when it comes to CCC's translation and it seems we'll have to wait for the Moonspeakers to do their part...

IIRC, her 'fake' class is the Idol class she made up for herself.

The only thing she seems to have of a Berserker is a very low Mad Enhancement that appears to be an anomaly, but otherwise she's a 'legit' Lancer.

I have just learned Joji Nakata voiced Rev. Lovejoy in the Japanese dub for The Simpsons Movie.

That... certainly brings to mind some interesting imagery.
