Plot Summary (Singularity 1 - Orleans)

Post by Damascus on Mon Aug 07, 2017 10:48 pm

--Chaldea--
*Mordred, having read the journal left behind by her past incantation, finds and confronts Artoria. Having spent the last ten-odd years dwelling on their last encounter, Artoria admits that she was a flawed King. She'd spent her life as a Servant wishing to go back and fix her mistakes, but that Britain is long gone and never coming back. She's going to try to be better.

*Da Vinci finds Lazarus and tells him about Marisbury's experiments on children, which he carried out to perfect his Servant summoning system. The same experiment resulted in Mashu becoming a Demi-Servant. In light of this, and the stress he was under at the time, his suicide seems understandable, but they both still suspect Lev to have had a hand in it.

*Da Vinci fills the group in on their first destination: France 1431 AD. It's the midst of the Hundred Years' War. She has no idea what they should expect, only to keep an eye out for changes in the timeline. The team is as follows:
--Mari => Mordred
--Avalon => Artoria
--Aaron => Paracelsus => Darius
--Mashu

*The group Rayshifts to their destination.

--France--
*The group appears on a hillside in the French countryside. They find a road and follow it until they find a platoon of French soldiers. Struggling through the language barrier, they learn that Jeanne d'Arc, who was recently burned at the stake, has apparently been revived. She overran Orleans with dragons and killed the king.
*The group follows the soldiers to a nearby fort to help with the victims of a recent attack. From there they decide to head straight to Orleans to take out Jeanne.

*On the way to Orleans, they come upon the scene of an even more recent attack and draw the attention of the culprits: Jeanne, accompanied by four other Servants and a fuckton of dragons.
*After a short battle, Mordred attempts to take out Jeanne with her Noble Phantasm, but Jeanne reflects it back on them with her own NP, Le Grondement de la Haine. The party is forced to retreat.

*The party flees to a nearby forest to recover, but they're followed there by the Rider that had been accompanying Jeanne. She tells them she doesn't want to serve Jeanne, but is forced to because she was summoned with a Berserk Attribute.
*She tells them to find a dragon slayer in Lyon, who will help them take down Jeanne and her dragons. Unable to hold back any longer, she identifies herself as Saint Martha, then attacks the group, forcing them to take her down.

--Lyon--
*After several days of travel, the group makes it to Lyon, only to find the city already under attack by dragons. They fight their way to the center of the town to see a heavily injured Servant and Master.
*Before they can introduce themselves, a giant dragon attacks. The Servants do battle with it for some time, but the injured Servant shows himself. He identifies himself as Siegfried, and the dragon as Fafnir.
*He strikes it with his Noble Phantasm, Balmung. Heavily injured, the dragon flees, but Artoria--still on the outskirts of down--blasts it with Excalibur as it tries to escape, killing it definitively.

*The Master identifies himself as Edouard Vial, Siegfried's Master. He is a mage who obtained Command Spells after the Holy Grail in this era's backup system activated. He summoned a Servant, but his family was killed as Jeanne razed his village.
*He agrees to go with them to help take down Jeanne.

*They don't get very far when two of Jeanne's Servants--Assassin and Berserker--track them down in a forest, planning to finish them off before they can recover their mana.
*A platoon of French soldiers arrives and helps take out the dragons, and the group is successfully able to take out the two Servants.
*The leader of the soldiers turns out to be Gilles de Rais, who still hasn't committed the child murders in his later life. He decries Jeanne's actions, saying she is not the Jeanne that he knew, and will push the French army against her to put an end to her slaughter.
*Finally able to rest, the group makes camp and prepares for the long journey to Orleans.

*The party sets out for Orleans to finally confront and take down the evil Jeanne d'Arc. On the way, Da Vinci, having studied her spiritual pattern, remarks that she appears to have been summoned as an evil Heroic Spirit. It should be impossible for a Ruler and a Saint to have an evil side, and she doesn't appear to have been corrupted by anything. She gives them a secondary mission to investigate this mystery, but taking out Jeanne is still the first priority.

*The enemy Archer and Lancer block their path, with the latter being instantly recognized as Elizabeth Bathory, who participated in the Fourth Holy Grail War as Malphas' Servant. The crew has little trouble in dispatching them and advances to Orleans.

--Orleans--
*Before the final battle, Gilles introduces the group to his friend Francois Prelati. There are reports of demons in the castle that are similar to ones Prelati has dealt with before, so he invited him for his expertise.
*Da Vinci warns the group of his reputation as an assistant in the child murders.

*The French Army engages the dragons to keep them occupied while the party storms the castle. Waiting for them is a knight in black armor, the enemy Saber.
*Artoria recognizes him instantly--her uncle, Vortigern. She attempts to use Excalibur, but Vortigern absorbs its light before she can attack, rendering her powerless.
*Darius and Mordred engage him in Artoria's stead, dealing heavy blows on him until he uses his Noble Phantasm and transforms into a colossal white dragon.
*Vortigern takes a direct hit from Blood Clarent Arthur, but keeps fighting. Siegfried tries to use Balmung and misses. In desperation, he uses the very last of his mana to fire off a second, weaker Balmung that makes contact.
*Even though Siegfried begins to fade, an enraged Vortigern smashes his claw down and destroys him regardless. Mordred then swoops in and deals the final blow, carving open Vortigern's belly.
*The knight falls, warning them with his final breath that they can't save humanity.

*Gilles regroups with the party and offers to send Prelati in with them, but the party firmly rebuffs Prelati's help, telling him to stay behind with Gilles.
*They then head into the castle to confront Jeanne. Before she even has the chance to taunt them, the Servants attack.
*Philipus casts a spell to see through illusions, but there doesn't seem to be an illusion on Jeanne.
*Her Caster then appears to deride them for doubting her authenticity. It's Gilles de Rais, Bluebeard as a Servant.
*Caster summons his demons to attack, but Paracelsus manages to sneak behind him and silence him, rendering him unable to spellcast.
*The party dispatches Jeanne and Caster simultaneously. As soon as Jeanne fell, her body transformed into the Holy Grail.
*Aaron spent no time in recovering it, and the party then Rayshifted home, having resolved the Singularity.

--Chaldea--
*The group unwinds in the pool, then goes to dinner, where Da Vinci debriefs them. She regrets they weren't able to find the truth about Jeanne, but everything else went well. Grail recovered, Singularity repaired.
*Chiaki and Chiara ask Yui if they can go on Rayshift missions as well. Yui resists at first, but eventually relents, knowing her children are strong.

*In the intervening days before the next Singularity, Aaron and Phillipus discuss taking the next mission off for some alone time.
*Da Vinci asks Phillipus to help her create an artificial Master so she can go on missions as well.
*Medea tests a reinforcement spell on Mari, making her as strong as a Servant.
*Artoria gives Mashu some advice on how to get more in touch with her Heroic Spirit's abilities.
