This post is where I will update the story (night phase, where everyone kills each other).
This thread is strictly for lynching - unrelated posts will be deleted.
After each story, there will usually be a poll to lynch. You can revote at any time - when the poll closes, that’s the final tally. A successful lynch will do 2 HP damage to the target player, which may or may not Kill them.
For Day 1, please submit your night actions via the PM we sent you at the latest 24 hours after the Day Thread closes.
Everyone has 1 free pass on forgetting to submit actions. After that, the penalty for failing to submit actions will be losing half of your maximum HP (rounded up). Please stay active to keep the game flowing.
The team with the most members at the start of the Day Phase will have immunity for that Day. Since it’s the first day, no Lynch vote will take place as everyone is equal.
OH YEAH, please keep in mind that Night Phase will begin at around 12 PM PST tomorrow. Please take this into consideration when strategizing as you will not be allowed to discuss anything related to the game in both the Day Thread AND your Team Chats once this occurs. Feel free to start submitting actions too btw:
The Night has officially begun! However, after some thought, we’ve decided to let you guys talk within your Team Chats for this first Night only to start things off. Do keep in mind, however, that this does not allow you to help your teammates guess any True Names should any NP notifications arrive — the team will only be notified and that’ll be the end of that, the Target must state their guess in their private DM with only the GMs.
Please begin to submit your actions if you haven’t done so already within the next 24 hours (it’ll probably be a little more because I’ll still be in school by then), and any requests to use NPs will have to be within 12 hours. Happy hunting!
Welcome ladies, gents, (and gays) to our first ever Greater Grailpress War! Me and my fellow Rulers here will be your overseers for the duration of this war (for however long it may last), and we all hope to see some interesting shenanigans go down as y’all fight to the death – but it’s okay! We’re all here to have fun anyways. Now, without further ado, let’s get rooooolllliiiiiing my dudes.
As the sun began to set on the town, a Smol Helper ran around joyfully through the streets in eager anticipation of what was to come until eventually coming to a halt in a rather nice part of the area. Suddenly, without much warning, they sprang into action and cast their Noble Phantasm, Jyuu Ou Hanketsu - Tsuzura no Michiyuki, causing a Quaint Inn to appear! They then rang up an Alluring Figure alongside a Commanding Presence and NRA Activist, treating them all to a nice meal inside. Deciding that they needed a break, the Smol Helper walked outside of the Quaint Inn only to be Attacked and Wounded by the NRA Activist. Hurt by the sudden betrayal, the Smol Helper tried distancing themselves further but soon came face to face with a Sisterly Trio who attempted to cast their Noble Phantasm; however, before they could even do anything, the Smol Helper ran the ■■■■ away and retreated to their home, Healing themselves on the way.
Nearby the local coffee shop, a Timeless Teacher was peacefully minding their own business and sipped a hot cup of Joe when strangely enough, a voice could be heard screaming at the top of their lungs, “Secace MORGAAAAAAN!” – and exactly on cue, a fiery blast appeared out of nowhere coming in the direction of the Timeless Teacher. A Golden Maiden rushed to Protect them but this unfortunately proved ineffective, and the Noble Phantasm immediately Killed the Timeless Teacher upon making contact, dealing heavy damage. An NRA Activist came sprinting in to try and give the Timeless Teacher a last-minute Heal; however, a piano quickly fell from the sky and Blocked them from doing so. Meanwhile, an Aspiring Prodigy took the opportunity to Attack the Timeless Teacher and dealt overkill damage, activating Madness Enhancement for reassurance.
A White Star was reported to have been lazing around their house when they heard an unexpected knocking on their door. They went to go check it out and found a mysterious yumi gift from afar on their doorstep; immediately, they picked it up only to find themselves Blocked from doing anything. As if signaled to come in, a Dazzling Inspiration burst through the back door and immediately Attacked the White Star, though fortunately enough Independent Action kicked in just in the nick of time and they Dodged it. A Comrade then swooped in and attempted to Attack the Dazzling Inspiration to no avail but this seemingly angered the Inspiration, so they desperately Countered against the White Star; however,a Comrade managed to push them out of harm’s way and took the Wound for them. The White Star took a deep breath of relief thinking they were finally out of the clear, only for a Summer Lily to bust in through the motherfucking window and Attack the White Star, this time successfully landing a Wound. Out of contentment for their own success, the Summer Lily Attacked the White Star once again and swiftly Killed them with a heavy Wound; their body was later remarked to have been strangely writhing in pain from a mysterious Burn.
Sometime after midnight, an Alluring Figure met up a Relentless Fighter and amped them up with some motivational words. Feeling confident, the Relentless Fighter strutted their stuff all over town until a Devoted Mother accidentally ran into them, too busy hyping themselves to care. Deciding they didn’t appreciate having some rando crash their good mood, the Relentless Fighter Attacked the Devoted Mother but they simply shrugged it off. The Relentless Fighter tried to Attack them once again but like before, this didn’t do anything; the Alluring Figure also came by and similarly attempted to Attack the Devoted Mother to no avail. A Joyful Monarch then appeared and made their own attempt to Attack them, this time successfully landing a Wound thanks to Independent Action.
A Lovestruck Divinity was spotted giving a Commanding Presence a rather lengthy pep talk in the town park around this same time. After this, the Commanding Presence decided to go off on their own and Attacked an Aspiring Prodigy, though an Everpresent Guardian came just in time and Protected against the Attack. The Commanding Presence began to make their leave but sensing that they were being watched, they activated Presence Concealment. Meanwhile, the Lovestruck Divinity found themselves the recipient of a yumi gift from afar, subsequently suffering from a peculiar Wound. A Golden Maiden and X Factor then showed up and both Attacked the Lovestruck Divinity once each, decisively Wounding them
I swear, you’d think after all that the Night would be over, but NOPE – there’s still more.
On the edge of town, a Best Wife was visibly raring to go and began preparing their Noble Phantasm, setting their eyes on a nearby Vigilant Hero and Summer Lily. However, before they could actually do so, Another Chance appeared behind them and Attacked them, strangely forcing the Best Wife into submission in addition to Wounding them. The Best Wife quickly attempted to Counter them in retaliation but Another Chance’s Presence Concealment prevented this from working; a Mafia Boss then appeared and shouted some much-needed words of wisdom to Another Chance. Not one to simply give up, though, the Best Wife wandered around in search of a worthy adversary, eventually coming face-to-face with a Divine Warrior! Immediately, the Best Wife launched two successive Attacks; the Divine Warrior managed to Protect themselves against the first but were Wounded by the second, causing the Best Wife’s Madness Enhancement to activate. In turn, the Divine Warrior unleashed a flurry of three Attacks against the Best Wife; an Everpresent Guardian stepped in and Protected them against the first, but the latter two Attacks managed to significant damage, activating the Divine Warrior’s own Madness Enhancement. Having suffered such heavy Wounds, the Best Wife attempted a strategic retreat but not before deciding to punish the Divine Warrior for their actions, Killing them with three powerful Counters!
A Horror was seen walking towards an NRA Activist and readying an Attack. Strangely enough, the Horror’s Magic Resistance suddenly went off but they paid this no mind and proceeded to Attack the NRA Activist twice, with the Activist managing to Dodge the first one but getting Wounded by the second; they quickly Healed it off, though.
As the sun came up, the Divine Warrior suddenly began moving again and walked away as if nothing happened.
Since two teams had an equal number of Players, the team that has won Lynch Immunity has been decided randomly: Team Rainbow! However, as to not out team alignments, all currently alive Players will be placed in the Poll – lynching someone from Team Rainbow will simply result in this failing.
Sorry for the ping nerds, but to clarify after quite a few peeps have asked me — the Day Phase will be 48 hours unless y’all reach a majority Lynch before the 24 hour mark (but seeing this isn’t likely happening, y’all have a little over an actual day left to plan).
Second, lynching is the same always (aka majority is needed to do so). That means that y’all need 10 votes on a person to cast them to the gallows today
Thus, Night 3 begins! Per the norm, you guys have until 24 hours from the time of this post to submit actions, and only 12 to submit any Noble Phantasm notifications. Please remember that you are no longer allowed to speak about the game in the Day thread or your private team chats at this point! Happy hunting folks
Welcome back to the second night of our own little Holy Grail War folks! I’ll spare you guys my typical longwinded intro because boy, tonight is very hectic.
Immediately after sunset, a Timeless Teacher went strolling down the streets with a little pep in their step, really feeling themselves as they approached their destination. Eventually, they came face-to-face with a Summer Lily and before even allowing them the opportunity to react, the Timeless Teacher cast their Noble Phantasm and yeeted the Summer Lily away into the shadow realm, activating Territory Creation as well as Wounding them massively! Suddenly, the town quietly faded into darkness and became replaced by a small orchestra appeared, their music quickly painting a scene almost like words spilling into the air:
The music stopped and quickly, everything went back to normal.
Not knowing what the ■■■■ just happened (but ultimately not really caring), the precious Smol Helper decided to help themselves to a nice meal at the Quaint Inn and shoved food in their mouth like there was no tomorrow. After doing so, the Smol Helper decided to sit outside a bit to appreciate the night sky when suddenly, Another Chance appeared in front of them and instantly launched an Attack against them, though not before declaring the Smol Helper’s True Name, Beni-Enma, and causing them to puke a bit of the food they just ate (gross) out of shock. However, despite this, Beni-Enma managed to Dodge the Attack just in time.
Taking the opportunity to launch a sneak attack in the midst of the hubbub, a Brilliant Secret sneaked up on the Smol Helper and immediately launched their Noble Phantasm, Secret Calibur, launching a flurry of three Attacks against them! Beni-Enma tried to Protect themselves to no avail but luckily managed to Dodge the first Attack; however, the second two Attacks immediately tore through the young girl and Killed her. For reassurance, the Brilliant Secret Attacked them once more for some overkill damage, and a Vigilant Hero Attacked the corpse as well. A Relentless Fighter suddenly made themselves known, having previously been taking their peacock on a walk, and made Another Chance and the Brilliant Secret look mad shook. Immediately, the Fighter Attacked the Brilliant Secret twice (though they managed to Protect themselves against the first one but were Heavily Wounded by the second despite their Presence Concealment) and then focused on Another Chance, rapidly Attacking them twice; Another Chance’s Presence Concealment activated to assist them but unfortunately, the Relentless Fighter blew right past this and Killed them with their consecutive Attacks. An Alluring Figure also came out and Attacked Another Chance for some overkill.
A sign later mysteriously appeared at the door of the Quaint Inn: “CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.”
In the local park, a Commanding Presence was seen making a few preparations for… something, a smirk proudly on their face. Suddenly, a great shaking could be felt and a Daunting Fortress appeared from the ground as they activated their Noble Phantasm, Hanging Gardens of Babylon! Not one to shy away from having company, the Commanding Presence then invited a Best Wife and NRA Activist to join them inside for a cup of coffee but before the Best Wife could even take past a single step inside the fortress, a Divine Beast swooped down from the sky and immediately Killed them! Moments later, a handful of fellow whyfoo appreciators appeared ready with an assortment of Protects and Heals ready, only to be immediately disappointed when they saw their corpse. A Devoted Mother, after pumping themselves up, and a Dazzling Inspiration unexpectedly popped in and dealt even more overkill damage.
A Distant Jewel was seen talking to a Divine Warrior at the local 24 hour convenience store, offering them some useful advice alongside a cherry flavored slushie. The Distant Jewel then took their leave and left the Divine Warrior who (obviously after finishing their slushie) promptly left in the direction of the Daunting Fortress, coming upon a Divine Rose and the NRA Activist and readied their Noble Phantasm. Before they could do so, though, the Divine Rose simply smirked and yelled out the Divine Warrior’s True Name: Heracles. For some added security, the NRA Activist activated their own Noble Phantasm, Nightingale Pledge, engulfing themselves and the Commanding Presence in a warm light. Enraged, Heracles threw caution to the wind and used his Noble Phantasm, Nine Lives, to Attack the NRA Activist and Divine Rose, only for a Commanding Presence and Brilliant Secret respectively to rush in and Protect against the Attack. However, not one to ever waste an opportunity, an X-Factor appeared and Attacked the NRA Activist in the hopes of catching them off guard though this seemingly did nothing, their Presence Concealment suddenly activating. A Horror attempted to try their own luck and Attacked the NRA Activist twice, once again dealing no damage.
Meanwhile, heavily frustrated, Heracles tried wandering off when an immense force suddenly imposed itself on him, Blocking any further movement. A Lovestruck Divinity then appeared and cast their Noble Phantasm on the restricted hero to Attack them, Killing him instantly while simultaneously activating Territory Creation! Heracles’ body seemingly began moving mysteriously, feeling the aftershocks of a strange Wound. Feeling content with themselves, the Lovestruck Divinity began to walk away when the NRA Activist made their appearance once more and Attacked them, landing a successful Wound. A Divine Rose also came out of the woodwork and Attacked the Lovestruck Divinity, though this hardly phased them. Deciding enough was enough, the Divinity took the opportunity to Heal themselves; the NRA Activist then Healed them as well.
Later on in the Night, a Hard Worker decided to take their dick out in front of a Vigilant Hero and slapped them silly with it, Attacking them three times. The Hero’s Independent Action immediately kicked in and allowed them to Dodge the first time, finding themselves Wounded by the second two Attacks. A Sisterly Trio then appeared in front of the Vigilant Hero and, without a moment to spare, unleashed their Noble Phantasm, **Ragnarök Lífþrasir, skewering the Hero with six massive Attacks for heavy Wounds. Before taking his last breath, though, the Vigilant Hero decided they wanted to live and ran away from the scene with their hand on their dick.
Right before sunset, Heracles and Another Chance picked themselves up from the ground and walked away back to their homes. An Aspiring Prodigy was also noted to have been writhing in pain from a mysterious affliction.
Despite being divided amongst themselves, the townspeople (IDK what else to call you guys so let’s go with it) gathered around @Eflakis and Lynched him! Shortly thereafter, though, he quickly ran away into the Night.
And with that, Night 3 has begun! Please begin submitting your Actions within 24 hours (NP submissions within 12) of this post, though if y’all actually want the story tomorrow try to submit ASAP otherwise it won’t be till the next day. On the subject of the story, I’m gonna try cutting down a lot of the fluff since I’ve received notice that they’re a bit too long now, my apologies I tend to get carried away sometimes. Lastly, please no further game talk until the next day!
The sun set on Fuyuki once again, leaving many stressed on how to proceed under the cover of night. After a rather hectic series of events last night, some even hoped this one would be a lot more peaceful or maybe just a little more quiet – that would be wrong.
The Night began with a Timeless Teacher once again strutting their stuff down the streets and made their way towards the Daunting Fortress, having received an invitation for dinner. Once they were nearly there, however, a Divine Beast quickly made its way down from the heavens and smited the poor Timeless Teacher into oblivion, Killing them instantly with a massive Wound! A group of people with an assortment of Heals and Protects came immediately rushing towards the Timeless Teacher, but they were unfortunately too late to do anything. A Vigilant Hero later came in and Attacked the Timeless Teacher’s corpse for some overkill damage. Two other Wounds were also noted to have appeared on the Timeless Teacher after being shaken by a mysterious force; a soothing light could then be faintly seen.
On the rooftop of a hidden building, a Golden Maiden and Heracles were seen having an intense showdown with one another, consisting mainly of a staring contest. Finally, Heracles took initiative and Attacked the Golden Maiden twice; a Diligent Guardian swooped in and Protected against the first, and the second seemed to hardly phase the Maiden and barely tickled. The Golden Maiden then took their shot and Attacked Heracles, but this didn’t seem to do much either. Awkward.
A few hours later, in a lone area of the town, all the lights went out. Two townspeople were noted to have been wandering around this area at the time and without any further notice, they were immediately caught by two massive Attacks from a Noble Phantasm: Jet Sandanzuki. An unusual being rushed in to Protect one of the townspeople but failed, though their target ended up remaining unfazed by the second strike. The other townsperson, however, found themselves Wounded massively.
An NRA Activist was seen walking home after buying themselves a fancy new gun when they were unexpectedly approached by an Aspiring Prodigy. Sensing danger, the NRA Activist shot themselves in the face, Wounding themselves, and prepared before the Aspiring Prodigy finally cast their Noble Phantasm: Shokoku Taki-meguri. Although a few nearby bystanders nearly got caught in this, the Aspiring Prodigy suddenly felt unable to do so and solely struck the NRA Activist, Wounding them heavily! As if this weren’t enough, a Horror appeared and attempted to Attack the NRA Activist twice (with their Magic Resistance activating unexpectedly), but they ultimately failed to go through with it. A bit peeved at what happened, the NRA Activist attempted to perform an Attack but similarly couldn’t muster the willpower to do so. As the Aspiring Prodigy began walking away, they felt a tinge of pain from a preexistent affliction but shook it off as nothing.
In the meantime (and in a slightly less violent part of the town), the ever charming Commanding Presence was seen opening gates to their Daunting Fortress, inviting a Lovestruck Divinity and Devoted Mother (who was previously busy pumping themselves) inside. Sensing some hostility from them, the Commanding Presence chained the Devoted Mother in place and Countered them; however, the Mother quickly broke free and Dodged it. Another Chance then broke in through the window into the Daunting Fortress, effortlessly avoiding the Commanding Presence’s chains, and Attacked them, but they just simply shrugged it off. Another Chance’s Presence Concealment quickly activated and they retreated without a trace.
A Relentless Fighter approached a Brilliant Secret and Attacked them with a fast and mighty blow, but the Brilliant Secret immediately shielded themselves with an instantaneous Protect and prevented any damage. Not too far from there, an X-Factor Attacked and successfully Wounded an Alluring Figure, promptly activating their Presence Concealment after making contact. Also, a Dazzling Inspiration quickly unleashed a powerful Attack against an Unwavering Faith, Wounding them! Later, the Unwavering Faith writhed in pain from a mysterious Burn.
As the sun rose, some people decided to share the love. An NRA Activist Healed themselves with the remaining aura of their Noble Phantasm but seemingly not satisfied, they Healed themselves once more. A Lovestruck Divinity came by after this and gave the NRA Activist some much-needed advice. In addition, a Distant Jewel and Mafia Boss both decided to share some food with a Vigilant Hero and also Healed them; strangely enough, though, the Distant Jewel was also seen muttering to themselves softly.
Throughout the entirety of this chaos, one townsperson spent their time twiddling their thumbs until they finally realized that the sun had come up.
Team Black has maintained their lead and once again won Lynch immunity! However, as to not out team alignments, all currently alive Players will be placed in the Poll – lynching someone from Team Black will simply result in this failing. 9 Votes are required for a Lynch.
Night 4 has now begun. Per the norm, you guys have until 24 hours from the time of this post to submit actions, and only 12 to submit any Noble Phantasm notifications. Please remember that you are no longer allowed to speak about the game in the Day thread or your private team chats at this point!
Sorry for the delay folks, I’ve been a tad preoccupied with memes other important business but let’s not dwell on that too much. What is important is that the sun has once again set on the town, thus without further ado – let the murder game begin!
An Alluring Figure strolled down the street on their way back home after a hard day’s work when out of nowhere, a Dazzling Inspiration made their presence known and Attacked them, landing a Wound with one swift strike; a mysterious Burn then started to form on the Alluring Figure’s body but they simply shook it off as nothing and continued on their walk. An NRA Activist decided to provide the Alluring Figure with some assistance and Healed them. A Devoted Mother tried pulling a fast one on the NRA Activist while they were distracted and Attacked them, but a Commanding Presence Protected against this.
Having decided to treat themselves like the boss they are (quite literally), a Mafia Boss was seen enjoying a steak dinner in the only five star restaurant in town, pumping themselves up with a few hard-earned words of encouragement. They were later joined by a Devoted Mother who seemed to bear a similar sentiment, further boosting the Mafia Boss’ ego with praise. Not too much later, a Distant Jewel came in with Heracles and dined with them, the former spoiling the latter endlessly with valuable advice on how to proceed for the Night.
In a more isolated part of town, a Relentless Fighter was out and about doing their thing when an NRA Activist appeared and shot them right in the face, Wounding them! This made the Relentless Fighter mad shook but they nonetheless attempted to continue on their merry way, only for an immense pressure to suddenly force them down onto the ground and Block them from moving any further. An X-Factor rushed in and decided to take advantage of the opportunity to Attack the Relentless Fighter, though this seemingly did nothing to faze them; their Presence Concealment suddenly Activated, preventing the Relentless Fighter from Countering. Once everyone else left, an Alluring Figure took the chance to soothe the Relentless Fighter and inspired them with their motivating gaze.
Meanwhile, out in the middle of the town square, an Unwavering Faith was spotted preparing something rather… interesting, suddenly finding themselves surrounded by a Summer Lily, Vigilant Hero, and Dazzling Inspiration; a piano even began falling from the sky in the direction of the Unwavering Faith at an alarming speed. However, before anyone could even react, the Unwavering Faith activated their Noble Phantasm, Ascalon, enveloping themselves and a nearby Golden Maiden in a powerful, protective veil that seemingly forced the others into submission. Moments later, the Vigilant Hero and Dazzling Inspiration found themselves Attacked right in the face by a massive wave with no time to react, leaving both of the targets to be successfully Wounded. The Vigilant Hero and Dazzling Inspiration attempted to maintain their composure, but both quickly keeled over after feeling the pain of a mysterious Wound that suddenly appeared on their bodies. Meanwhile, the Unwavering Faith found themselves the recipient of a yumi gift from afar which Healed them.
In the midst of chaos, no one had noticed that the Summer Lily managed to speed off into the night before being caught in the crossfire.
Eventually finding the strength to continue on with their intended plan despite being near the brink of Death, the Vigilant Hero weakly stood up and tried to find help. Much to their dismay, they were only met with further violence as a Joyful Monarch appeared behind them and activated their Noble Phantasm against them to unleash a powerful Attack; however, Heracles rushed in just in the nick of time and Protected against this. In retaliation, the Vigilant Hero Countered against the Joyful Monarch and Heracles joined in to perform two powerful Attacks of his own, but the Monarch effortlessly Dodged them all. In frustration, Heracles roared loudly and forcefully activated Madness Enhancement against the Joyful Monarch. While this happened, a Lovestruck Divinity took advantage of the diversion and successfully Healed the Vigilant Hero.
Having been fortunate enough to receive an invitation to the Daunting Fortress, Another Chance was seen rushing down the streets, anxious to get to their destination, when an Alluring Figure crossed their path and Attacked them without hesitation; thankfully, though, Another Chance’s Presence Concealment activated immediately and allowed them to swiftly Dodge. Thinking that would be the only obstacle in their path this night, Another Chance continued on their path and were stopped AGAIN, this time by a Joyful Monarch. Immediately activating their Independent Action, the Joyful Monarch Attacked Another Chance and dealt a heavy Wound! That being said, Another Chance wasn’t one to give up that easily and once again resumed their course.
Finally, after about ten more minutes of walking, Another Chance arrived at the Daunting Fortress, being greeted by a Commanding Presence alongside a Devoted Mother and Golden Maiden; they waited a bit for one more guest to arrive, but they never did. Subsequently making their way inside, they all chatted amongst themselves until the Commanding Presence began sensing some hostility from the Golden Maiden, quickly chaining them in response. The Commanding Presence then prepared to Counter against the Golden Maiden, but were backed down into submission by their powerful aura. Meanwhile, the Devoted Mother attempted to try and sneak up on the Commanding Presence, ultimately finding themselves chained and immediately Countered (and Wounded) by the Presence though. The Devoted Mother then keeled over, having suffered a Wound from a mysterious affliction, and Died; however, their Battle Continuation activated immediately and allowed them to stand back up for one last hurrah.
As the sun began to rise, some were surprised to see that the Daunting Fortress that previously occupied the town park was now gone.
Team Black has maintained their lead for the third day in a row and once again won Lynch immunity! However, as to not out team alignments, all currently alive Players will be placed in the Poll – lynching someone from Team Black will simply result in this failing. 9 Votes are required for a Lynch. Also, please note that Hapuc has now been replaced by @TMFM.
…Well, this is awkward but a mistake was brought to my attention and the Story has now been amended to reflect this. I am incredibly sorry for not realizing this sooner, but please take into consideration the following change as you continue to strategize. The Day Phase will be extended by an additional 12 hours behind the original 48 hours as compensation, my apologies again.
Night 6 has now begun. As usual, you guys have until 24 hours from the time of this post to submit actions, and only 12 to submit any Noble Phantasm notifications. Please remember that any further game talk in your private team chats must now CEASE
