I’ve had this fun idea, and I didn’t want to necro an older thread, so here you go.
My starter idea is fairly simple: a new system that would give persistent buffs to servants depending on their relationship with the other party members, which would be based on lore and shared history in singularities and/or other media.
I have four simple categories in mind:l
- Admiration: The “admired” servant would get a defense buff, so long as the admirer is on the field (eg.: Ozy/Nito, Mozart/Marie, etc.)
- Solidarity: Both servants would get an NP gain buff (eg.: the Knights of the Round Table, the Gorgon sisters, Medusa/Parvati, etc.)
- Rivalry: Both servants would get a crit Gen boost (eg.: Emiya/Cu, Emiya/Gil, Ozy/Lartoria, Edison/Tesla, Liz/Nero, etc.)
- Grudge: The servant with the grudge would get an attack buff (eg.: Andersen/Kiara, Spartacus/kings, Carmilla/Liz, Vlad/Vlad, MHX/Saber faces, etc.)
On top of this, there could be other, extra bonuses between specific servants, such as Merlin/Artoria, Cu/Scathach, or Medb/Bersercu.
