Billy from Xenogears was a decent religious dude who ran an orphanage.

And then life took a massive liquid poo poo on him and everyone else he knew from his religion either got killed horribly or turned out to be evil.

That said they also exhibit a dose of pragmatism like going 'Oh gently caress it' after realizing nothing they have is going to do more than mildly annoy Arcueid and they pretty much ignore her when she shows up to go Roa-hunting.

I was just thinking how if servants can be summoned from any point in time and the vast majority of servants (literally every one except archer?) come from the past, that means the world must be ending soon!

Modern humans can't become Servants (or at least it's a vanishingly small chance) because... something Alaya spread too thin, lack of fame, the weapon gets the credit now yadda yadda.

It seems like you could just append "and don't do any horrible hosed up poo poo in the process" to your wish and sidestep the Grail's jackassery pretty easily.

"Hey, you know what's horribly hosed up? Humans. Humans are horribly hosed up. Therefore, if I remove humans, I am actively reducing the amount of horribly hosed up poo poo."

I've been meaning to ask, where did the term "prana" come from vice the more oft used "mana"? Was it some weird Nasu-ism in one of the earlier releases?


I think the distinction is that prana is the magic that comes from a person (or living thing, w/e) specifically and mana is just the ambient magic energy in the air.

If that's how things usually worked then Valve would've already made Half-Life 3.

Actually they're getting mad profits from Dota 2 and CSGO and reinvesting that into making more Dota 2 and CSGO content.

Which is probably what will also happen with Grand Order.

the idea of fuji nee and gilgamesh being drinking buddies is really funny so i want to know who the third guy is

That guy is Rider of Fate/Zero, known to the rest of the world as Alexander the Great.

Him and Gil being bros (or at least the closest thing Gil will allow to a bro outside of Enkidu) is a rather large subplot in F/Z.
