So if I put two Avengers in my party, does their passive NP gain thingy stack?

No? The NP charge up is to 'self'. Of course it's not gonna stack. Does Riding stack? ME? Item Creation? etc.
(The debuff chance down does, since that one's aimed at "the rest of the team")

He's not a particularly good writer but he's really drat good at worldbuilding so he's the Japanese Brian Herbert

I thought so, too, until I read Sinker vs. Slugger from DDD2. It's ironic that it's translated to Russian (and Chinese) before English. Dude really went full Dost in that one. Not that I compare him to Dostoevsky, of course, but, while it's pitch black, it's not Urobuchi brand of grimdarkness either. There's no rape involved for one. The first volume of DDD, while not as good, features grown up, jaded version of Tohsaka, it's great. Mahoyo, from what's available of it, is cute lighthearted shounen fun for all family. (Which, in my opinion, Tohsaka's route in FSN should have been, but that's neither here nor there).

The problem with Nasu is that people tend to judge the guy based on his 10+ years old output, and milking the Fate franchise to the last drop and then some isn't helping. The truth is, FSN just wasn't all the great, and in my totally scientific approximation 70% of its success can be attributed to Takeuchi, a perv struggling with human anatomy, who just happens to be a genius character designer.

There's nothing wrong with reusing a good setting, especially one as open and freeform as the Holy Grail War. Most of the Fate spin-offs aren't even particularly linked to the original F/SN that much.

Honestly I'm surprised they haven't made a spin-off that is literally just all of the Masters walking in and playing D&D with Servants.

My issue is that for all the Grail War milking, they still haven't gotten around to the Grail Wars I actually care about :

  • The First War, of which we know basically nothing except that nobody got to wish on the Grail.
  • The Second War, which also ended inconclusively, in which "loopholes in the rules were found."
  • The Third War (Zero timeline), featuring Angra Mainyu as Avenger replacing Berserker, two different Sabers (controlled by two different Edelfelts), a rift between the Axis powers over the Grail that led to its destruction, and a midget Assassin who turns brains to gunpowder.
  • The Third War (Apocrypha timeline), in which instead of a Berserker or Avenger, Shirou Amakusa was summoned as Ruler, and Amakusa and Darnic survived.
  • Crazy fan theory: The Third War (Kara no Kyokai timeline), which ended with Vlad getting the Grail and declaring, "No more vampires!" (Admit it, it totally makes sense!)
  • The dismantling of the Grail by Waver and Rin after Unlimited Blade Works (and possibly after Fate?).

It's a prequel to the thing proper I think? I haven't read any of the Crimson Dragon translations but I remember people mentioning as much.

I remember somebody in chat who read Red Dragon before it became an anime (and really liked it) and was in despair at how lovely an adaptation the anime was. From what I understand it's the same basic premise but with significant alterations, not a prequel or anything.

...and when I asked (Gen) Urobuchi to write a story with that character as protagonist, he gladly accepted it. But during the plotting stage, even though I said, “Write something with a happy ending for once,” first he asked me, “Can’t I have this character kill this other character and end it there?”

Urobuchi, please

quote:

The story doesn’t cover a span of just one or two weeks. If it covers a whole year, the gameplay should also cover a whole year. If we had set it to be too easy right from the start, then by the time we got to the second half the game would already be dead. That’s why even if staff like Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi would complain and say, “Make it easier to get Ascension Mats!” he would, with a resolve of steel, keep protecting the balance settings.

“I think the story will be something like ‘a lot of Servants have started living in Ogawa Apartments, so Shiki will be going around collecting their rent.’ It’s not a gag story.”
