15$?

(Checking)

I can easily afford that.

(Due to having and doing a actual well-paid job that haven't suffered in the slightest from the ongoing Corona-pandemic)

Whatever it will be just one or several 5-Stars delivered from that one roll in the GSSR-gacha would be up to the "Poor Man's Parade" to decide though.

I'm aiming for either the Archer or Rider GSSR. Every other GSSR I have all but one Servant I want on each one.

  • Only Saber is Arthur
  • Only Lancer is Ereshkigal
  • I have all the Casters & Assassins
  • Only Berserker is Kintoki
  • Only Extra is Abby
Archer and Rider meanwhile have eight servants each, but I only have five on each one.
  • I have Artemis, Tesla, Arjuna, Napoleon, and Moriarty
    • I'd be fine getting Gilgamesh (I can just pretend he's not a douche) or Summer Artoria, and I'd like Ishtar
  • I have Ivan, Achilles, Ozy, Quetz, and Medb
    • I'd be fine getting Iskander or Summer Salter, but I really want Drake.
As such, while its still only a 3/8 chance of getting a Servant I don't have, its still better than the other ones!
My only concern is... either one runs the risk of being spooked by Artemis or Ozy again. I've been spooked by them both when I already had them on GSSR's twice now! Once with Artemis, once with Ozy! And if they spook me again I may lose it!

Holmes and Reines rate-up aka super bait and/or they didn't feel like giving an interlude to a permanent 5* right now.

Interlude campaign details

  • Lakshmi Bai is Quartz (Gilles in her interlude oh boy), Holmes is a skill upgrade and notably is a Lostbelt-locked interlude.
  • 1/4 AP off for all main story quests up to Lostbelt 3 prologue.
  • 1/2 AP off the rest of the Lostbelts.
  • 4 Apples and 3 Quartz as log-in bonuses

According to preliminary reports, Holmes' 1st skill now inflicts AOE Arts def down and Reines' 3rd skill now gives 20% charge to make her a true counterpoint to Waver.

now off to check twitter and see what dank Holmes lore this interlude digs up

Something interesting from the Lostbelt CE's that further's my hope for Archer Patxi and even maybe the return of Gerda and Asha. Incoming wild mass guess.
Heretical Yaga:

This is but a vision of a dream.
A world that would never be possible, only dreamed of by a Yaga.
Yet, you still imagine it... you still envision a wolf looking up at the stars, grinning in satisfaction.

Girl Amidst the Flowers:
This is an image of a dream.
A world that will never be seen, a world that never will be.
Yet you still envision it...
The sight of this girl slightly older than before, surrounded by flowers.

Family Portrait:
This is the painting of a dream.
Gentle parents, close brothers and sisters, adorable and childish younger sister, most beloved pet dog... That one family that has completely vanished due to the reincarnation cycle gone rogue, a form of the world that cannot be.
And yet, you still see it.
The prayers of the little girl who could no longer remember anything would come to fruition at the end of the phenomenon.

Argonauts:
This is the painting of a dream.
An impossible world where heroes independent from the Gods all gathered on a single ship. Even so, you could still see it.
The brave figures sailing away at daybreak.
All four of these CE's share the same idea: a world that couldn't exist, to the point it almost seems like they're dreams, and that all the people we've met should have been lost, yet we can still see them, alive as they look to the sky and live on. While its easy to just write this off as optimistic thinking to try and ease our guilt over ending the Lostbelts, note how some of these things should be impossible.
  • We didn't know Patxi's inner monologue and his overall feelings of the World.
  • We didn't see Gerda as she danced alone waiting for us to return.
  • We never knew Asha's family before the Yuga's erased them.
Then remember how the Argonauts is also described as a dream, and that we can still see them sailing again. Well, of course we can. They're all Servants at Chaldea that we are canonically contracted too thanks to the Events.

So where am I going with this? Well, remember what Wodime and Ophelia learned about the Lostbelts and the Fantasy Trees, the Lostbelts are effectively recreations with their data existing in the trees, hence why they fall apart when the trees are destroyed. Now note how we only gain these CE's after we destroy the Lostbelts. These CE's are data. They're physical records of the information the trees had on the Lostbelts, their worlds effectively existing still as data on the CE's.

The Argonaut's one still being possible is what makes me believe that Gerda and Asha can be brought back, namely by using these CE's when we recreate Proper Human History. Proper Human History is gone and the World is effectively a Blank Slate now right? Well, like Titan suggested a few pages back, we still have data on it thanks to the Throne of Heroes recording people from History. We can recreate our world with that data, but merge that data with the CE's and make them part of history too. The Yaga would likely become a race of Phantasmals, and the Scandinavian and Indian Lostbelts would be merged with their countries of origin, just without the tragedies they faced.

Well why does this make me think we can get Patxi as a Servant? Because unlike Gerda and Asha, Patxi died. He gave his life to saves ours before the Lostbelt was pruned. And it's because of him we even managed to push forward with pruning the other Lostbelts. Patxi effectively would be the reason we ever managed to try and restore the world. He'd be someone in history who created an impact with just a simple deed. And since even a single deed can make you a Heroic Spirit, Patxi would be recorded once the new world is created, as the Heroic Spirit who made it possible for the World to be restored, the one who fought against his own world's nature and dreamed of a new world, the Heretical Yaga, a true hero.

Sanda confirms that he wrote Reines' interlude.

Re: Holmes' interlude, it seems to be a Sakurai character reunion story as there are nods to both the Jekyll and Blavatsky short stories. And they further tease the idea that Holmes was not necessarily summoned in normal circumstances.

Shouldn't be an issue. I'm not in NA.

As for Patxi: once again, he can fuck off. Makes no sense.

The only thus far unsummonable characters I'd want in some capacity are Lavinia, because Abby needs more friends, and Solomon—if and when the plot got somewhere that would justify it.

And then I'd want to murder DW for making you roll for it.

Either way, advantage there is that one of them is actually a Servant in the first place. Not so much the other one, but Foreigners are a weird place and the last one is a damn probe...

At this point, the fact I can remember his name to say that. I don't think any of the other ones really deserve it either, because again: OCs with no connection to any historical, legendary, or literary work whatsoever, nor a presence in any other Type Moon work to explain why they're being used as a baseline.

We get it, you don't like him. Doesn't mean he can't be a Servant.

I have no reason to particularly dislike him; he'd just be a stupid Servant idea and then I would dislike him for wasting time that could have gone to something that has a reason to be a Servant.

Also, he's the one that you're pushing for here.

New interlude stuff

Sherlock Holmes is a seigi no mikata confirmed

Holmes: Why I became a detective? Why am I chasing after this case, I haven't talked to you about it, huh? I'm sure Miss Kyrielight knows. She's read Sir Doyle's novels and watched the movies after all. How about you, Ritsuka?
Ritsuka: "Of course I want to know but..." / "I want to hear it from your lips."
Holmes: Very well then. I shall tell you. The reason, why I became a detective, is because of justice.
Ritsuka: Justice?
Holmes: Yes, it's for the sake of justice. Though I might be hiding something, I am an ally of justice. Were you surprised?

Some bullet points from Sey on Holmes' interlude.

Confirmation that the Sakurai short stories are canon to FGO through Holmes' interlude.

Reines' interlude does some discussion on her relationship with the Animuspheres.

Sion rayshifts for the first time in QSH's interlude, indicating that she might see more involvement on the field in events/interludes/main story.
