The Holy Grail Clusterfuck

Post by Damascus on Fri Jan 27, 2017 12:19 am

Yui was just preparing breakfast again when she felt the leylines waver. "Oh, not again." She quickly grabbed a cup of coffee, running to find Lazarus as the leylines gradually weakened.

Yui stumbled into Lazarus' room. "Okay, this is getting ridic--..."

She trailed off. The energy in the leylines were suddenly nose-diving, so much so that even the mansion itself trembled a little bit as the land strained. Then, it was all gone. The leylines were had been drained empty.

Yui dropped her cup, just staring blankly at Lazarus with her jaw hanging open.

For once, the mage seemed to be panicked. He almost asked his wife if it was real, but he could tell by the look on her face that it was. He could hear shouts of suprise coming from the other rooms in the house, and he began to tremble at the strain on his mana. With the leylines two servants hadn't been an issue, but now...

Avalon was out putting up a windchime for the chickens and conversing with Carlotta when the mana was sucked out from under them. She chose not to panic and waited, the mana would come back, right? Carlotta jumped up from her seat and ruffled around in a bush, eventually finding a proper divining branch. She walked around, briskly at first, trying to get any bit of an indication that mana still flowed through the lines but became more hurried, almost running as no matter where she went there were no results. She began cursing under her breath, and immediately found Alexander, "Please go into spirit form immediately, but keep watch over the wall. I don't know for certain if it was the greater grail that did this, but if it wasn't, something that did is coming and we should be very afraid." her voice held a slight tremble, but she stayed outside, keeping an eye. She began to sharpen the branch she had, moving towards the trunk of a small tree and retrieving a hammer from the tool shed.

Alexander nodded and saluted."Of course, my lady."

Daichi's eyes were trailing over the research results for the umpteenth time, looking for a loophole his... team could exploit. And then the leylines utterly emptied. His eyes went first to Medea, then to the others in the Tohsaka mansion. "How many of our defenses depend on the leylines?" he asked.

Yui trembled a little bit, not sure how to react to the sudden developments. The mana drain could only mean one thing: more summonings. Yui was sure they were about to find out just how many Servants the Grail could summon.

She teared up a little. "I... I don't know what to do."

Daichi's words snapped her into focus a little. "None of the Bounded Fields depend on the leyline, luckily. My family's gems will keep them up just fine."

Then everyone in the mansion felt the approach of some presences.

"Servants approaching," Yui stammered. "From the northeast." She turned to Fran. "Take position on the roof. Please... be careful."

As Fran nodded and returned to spiritual form to move up there, Yui closed her eyes and began chanting.

Medea closed her eyes, concentrating on the thaumic hum around her. "I was afraid that the innate Tohsaka defenses might be, but they feel as strong as ever. I believe they draw power from the heirloom gems. Phillipus has stronger defensive magic than I, so it would be a good idea for him to - Although..." She parted the curtain over the window to look out over the garden, just in time to see Cesar fall from the other Caster's hands.

He seemed to not even notice the angered clucking as he ran inside, stopping only to grip Astolfo's shoulder. "Go check on Lazarus! If the leylines don't come back, he'll... Just make sure he's safe!" Astolfo saluted and barked out an "aye aye, sir!" before running upstairs.

Phillipus drew a circle with the tip of the Azoth's blade and began chanting. [BOUNDED FIELD: RANK A] Sensing the ripples of spellwork, Medea smiled faintly with approval.

"Luckily, my dear Daichi, we're not in the company of rank amateurs."

Mari ran over to the covered birdcage in the corner of the garden and whipped off the quilt before opening the cage door, moth familiars fluttering out to survey the area. Saber turned to Avalon with their armor snapping around them. "At your order, my lady."

Yui chanted remembered her Azoth sword, and quickly headed to the room where it was kept in a chest. Still chanting her spell, she picked up the sword and slid it into her belt.

"Berserker! Head up top with the other Berserker! Careful not to damage the roof too much!"

Asterion stood and growled and also shifted to spiritual form.

Kirei looked more reserved in response to the incoming threat, turning to Atalanta. "Compared to what we have, the incoming force is rather small. I doubt this is a true head-on attack. Let's wait inside until we're needed."

Atalanta almost protested the plan, but decided the added advantage of being a surprise ability wise was sound logic. She did however place herself near a well placed window, and readied her bow.

Lazarus, knowing he couldn't risk any mana usage unless necessary, stayed inside, but kept an eye out the window. He had paper and pen in hand, ready to record whatever he saw as quickly as possible. 

Scathach placed a hand on Mari's shoulder, and the servant's hand emanated heat as she placed the rune Inguz on her, creating a protective barrier, "I'll be back soon," she said, before disappearing completely. Using her presence concealment, she leapt over the wall and scouted towards the appraoching energies. Upon meeting them, she placed runes on two of the enemy mages, and followed secretly from behind as they finished their journey.

Carlotta quickly left her post by the tree and grabbed a few eggs. She knew she hadn't been the best person lately, but luckily she had a spell for that. She put all her recent sins into the eggs, beginning her spell just as the opposition crested the wall.

"Go get 'em hon!" Avalon encouraged Mordred. She gave her a hearty smack on the back of her armor and readied a swirling wind shield to block incoming attacks. (Shield is rank C)

Daichi put his left hand in his pocket, fingering his watch, while lifting his jacket with his right and flipping open a holster. "Stay down here or go find an upstairs window, Medea?"

She pointed across the courtyard. "I'll be over there, I believe Atalanta will be the next window over. I'll signal Caster to take the other side when the barrier is sprung, and with luck we can pinch them if need be. Keep yourself out of danger, will you?" She blew him a kiss and shimmered out of sight, then appeared almost instantly in a window opposite where she once stood.

"The safest place is probably with you," Daichi responded, and followed Medea to her window. Plus, from there, he would have a higher vantage for his bullets. He started chanting a momentum shield (reduces damage of incoming ranged attacks, rank C).

Iskandar ghosted up to Philippus in his spirit form, then appeared next to him. "At your signal, I will distract them with my flashing thunderous wheels!" He grinned with excitement. A real battle! He then went back into spirit form to wait outside that wing of the house, his chariot ready to be summoned.

[[Avalon and Daichi now both have C-rank barriers]]

Aaron, A-san, and Manaka both flew toward the mansion carried by their respective Servants, with Lancer right behind them. About a quarter-mile from the mansion, the three Masters alighted down on a rooftop with Caster while the other three Servants continued on.

On cue, the newly summoned Saber, Berserker, and Lancer stopped on a rooftop just across the street form the mansion, forming a solid line.

Saber held her hands tightly around an invisible weapon, shrouded by swirling wind, while Lancer gripped a long silver spear. Berserker raised two massive axes.

"Ahh, that electric feeling in the air just before a battle," Lancer laughed. "It's been so long."

The three peered down at the mansion, waiting to see who revealed themselves first.

Atalanta waited patiently until needed. Scathach aimed her her spear at what she though might be the other team's Saber class. Her bright blonde hair made an excellent target. Staying in concealment until the very last moment, she swung her spear in the first part of her noble phantasm, striking at Saber. Even if it wasn't a true attack, showing their might by taking out one of their servants certainly wouldn't be a bad thing.

Saber gasped and turned when she felt Lancer's presence suddenly revealed, and turned her invisible weapon around to intercept. "Not so fast!"

Saber bashed the spear out of the way harmlessly. She then took up a ready stance to return the attack, but the white-haired Lancer stepped in front of her.

"Let me handle this one," Lancer chuckled, his eyes glinting. "You're a better choice for taking down their defenses."

Saber frowned, but nodded. "Very well then."

Feeling a presence near the gate that he couldn't see, Aaron ordered Berserker to investigate and attack whoever was there.

Across the yard and behind the gate, Saber and Astolfo locked eyes. Saber nodded firmly, and Astolfo returned the gesture with a determined smile. At once, they leaped out into the open, swords in their hands.

"I, Astolfo, Paladin of Charlemagne, will defend these grounds from you ruffians!! Argalia!" With a flourish, the sword dissipated from his hand and was replaced by a gold lance. Saber nearly rolled their eyes. He's really not even thinking for a moment...

They lifted their head and scanned their opponents - what they could assume to be Berserker was massive, but the bigger they are, the harder they fall, and their team had two of their own. The... Lancer, probably, seemed formidable, and the Saber -

Saber... Pendragon...

Clarent rattled in their hands. A weight spread across their chest and up into their throat, choking. The deftness with which she had blocked Scathach's spear was unmistakable.

"Astolfo... Leave Saber to me. I beg you." Their voice was shaking, barely loud enough for the Rider to hear. He hefted the lance in his hand and nodded. "Got it! I mean, I don't get it, but I gotcha!" Good enough. Astolfo cupped his hands around his mouth and yelled to Lancer.

"Hachi!! Don't attack Saber!! Ours calls dibs!!" There was a clunk as "their Saber's" forehead landed squarely into the palm of their gauntlet.

Astolfo had barely gotten the word "Argalia" out of his mouth when Aaron's massive Berserker landed in front of the gate, cracking the concrete.

"Gwwooooohhhh!!" With one might swing, Berserker took out the gate and both stone pillars--and the gems with them--as the axe swung toward Astolfo.

Caster, standing just behind the trio of Masters, wiggled his fingers and chanted under his breath.

[[High-Speed Incantation: Rank, C]]
[[Bounded Field: Rank C]]

A physical barrier sprung into place around the quartet. A-san turned and nodded in thanks.

"Just in case," Caster said.

Astolfo sprang into action, attempting to roll out of the way of the massive axe!

Saber eyed the two Berserkers waiting on the roof; not a good idea. Instead, she decided to follow their Berserker's lead, jumping down into the street. As Berserker targeted the pink-haired one, she--

She took a step and froze, her sword raised mid-swing. "It... can't be."

Asterion wasn't happy with being ignored. He jumped off the roof and landed next to the larger Berserker, swinging one axe hard across in hopes of catching him off guard. The enemy Berserker was quick enough to raise his second axe and bash it aside.

Astolfo was right, their Berserker was massive, and had already caused equally sizable property damage.

He tossed a gem out of the window. It flew in erratic directions, hiding its trajectory and from where it came until  it cracked and exploded in a red flash in the air. There's your signal, Rider Red!

"Great Zeus's testicles, that's a big one..." Medea furrowed her brow, thinking quickly. She ran down the hall to another window and unfurled a roll of papyrus, nipping her fingertip to draw blood. As quickly as she could, she drew a crude map of the area, and a rune where the opposing Berserker stood. Dropping the map on the floor, she planted her hand directly over Berserker's rune.

"Atlas!" The atmosphere around Berserker became crushing, suffocating. With luck on her side, the behemoth would stay in place, frozen.

Iskandar summoned his chariot at the signal, thunder booming above the mansion. He hopped on and lashed the bulls into action, building up speed quickly. He used the bulls' lightning hooves to appear to be riding sideways along the wall, using the close proximity to view the other team... and hopefully knock a few off balance. The fact that the wall was likely to crumble after this little stunt was just a side effect.


His grin, however, turned to a thoughtful look as he flashed past the enemy team's Berserker. When his maneuver finished he pulled away, circling the oxen. He looked straight at Blue Berserker, his expression now schooled to geniality. "Darius! What a surprise. Come to join my army again?"
