The date is the First of August, 2005. The location is the city of Santa Maria, Florida. Many individuals have converged upon this city, each at least with the potential to be a Magi. One thing unifies all these individuals: the letter inviting them to participate them in the first Santa Maria Holy Grail War.Now, if they would only stop giving the Overseer an aneurysm...
Fate/False Rebirth is a Play-By-Post game on the Sufficient Velocity forums.
Tropes applying to Fate/False Rebirth include:
- Beard of Evil: Berserker Gilgamesh has one. One of the first thing he does is to hold the world hostage by threatening to destroy it with Enki.
- Beard of Sorrow: Berserker grew his beard during his hunt for Immortality after Enkidu died.
- Berserk Button: Insulting Santa Maria is (literally) one for the Overseer.
- Cool vs. Awesome: Religious Werewolves vs Vampire Werewolves vs Vampires vs Enkidu vs A Hamon User vs a Dead Apostle Ancestor. And that's just the Master's.
- Earth-Shattering Kaboom: Saber's Ea, with its Anti-World status
- Expy: Quicktrolley.
- Later joined by Jonathon 'Jojo' Harker, who is Joseph Joestar in all but name.
- Eyepatch of Power: Rider. It even served as his summoning catalyst!
- Gender Flip: Saber Gilgamesh. Given the setting, it was inevitable.
- I Hate Past Me: Inverted. Berserker Gilgamesh goes into a blind rage when he sees his future self, decrying her for moving on from Enkidu's death. The fact that he also hates his present self doesn't help.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: William Cash, Vampire Werewolf Freelancer.
- My Greatest Failure: Berserker's source of self-hatred is because he Let Enkidu die.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: They serve the Papacy, and have done so since the times of the Crusades, if the Fourth Hassan is to be believed.
- Resigned to the Call: Despite ostensibly being in charge of conducting the Grail War, Santa Maria's Ruler clearly isn't happy with his role in the city.
- Running Gag: Several.
- Archer being unable to kill anything.
- Team Nanaya missing everything by virtue of coffee, cheese and crackers.
- Orea not being allowed to have nice things.
- All three of the Assassins present have kvetched about the prohibition on killing Masters to some degree or another.
- The Big Bad Wolf: Appears briefly as a Beast-class Servant.
- The Dreaded: Vrglh Saref
- The Great Flood: Berserker's Enki, though his claim of it flooding the whole world was a lie.
- Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: The Servants. We have Gawain and Gilgamesh as Saber, Hannibal as Rider, Orion as Archer, The Wild Hunt and another Gilgamesh as Berserker, and The Big Bad Wolf as Beast.
- With Catlike Tread: Abraham Benedict cannot travel stealthily. At all.
- Wolf Man: Resident werewolf and Burial Agency member, Abraham Benedict.
