1.Basic settings for Fate
・ Holy Grail and Holy Grail War
The legend says that whoever obtains the Holy Grail can fulfill any wish. In order to pursue the power of the Holy Grail, 7 magicians and 7 Servants called by them, 7 groups slay each other in a battle for the “Holy Grail War”.

・Servant
Servants are spirits summoned by the Holy Grail for the purpose of competing under Masters in the Holy Grail War.

Servants are divided into seven ranks.
①Saber
②Archer
③Lancer
④Caster
⑤Rider
⑥Assassin
⑦Berserker

The heroes of the past have become Servants. It is easy to be attacked by an enemy who knows who you really are, so concealing the truth is the most basic strategy.

The story is set in a parallel world to original Fate/stay night, where the House of Einzbern summoned a Ruler rather than an Avenger in the Third Holy Grail War, and the Holy Grail was removed from Fuyuki City to Romania after the war. Thus the events of Fate/stay night and Fate/Zero never happened. It focuses on the conflict between the two opposing factions, Red and Black, each summoning seven Servants and the Grail itself summoning a special Ruler-class servant as a mediator of the Holy Grail War. The Red faction members are mages sent by the Clock Tower Mage’s Association, while the Black faction members are part of a Romanian group of magi called Yggdmillennia.
