I’ve been doing some fairly intensive research into the Fate/Stay Night universe over the past few weeks. Devouring the American Type-Moon Wikia, digging out my copies of the Animes of F/SN and Lunar Legend Tsukihime. I downloaded and watched most of the Kara no Kyoukai movies and, of course, I’ve still been keeping up with Fate/Zero.
Additionally, my copy of Fate/EXTRA arrived yesterday and I just found out I could download Fate/Unlimited Codes to my PSP from the PSN. Only about 2/3rds of all this media is going to be relevant to the campaign, but that’s still a lot of material to hash through. Two conclusions: There’s no way I’m going to retain half of what I need at the rate I’m currently going, and wouldn’t it be nice to share some of this information with the players?
So the current project, in addition to the ongoing world building, character creation and storyline conception, I’ve decided to ‘blog’ my entire collection of Type-Moon material. All here. All for anyone to find. These blogs will be posted to the Adventure Log section of the Campaign Wiki with the tagline “Type-Moon.” They will also be discontinued before play begins, so the log can be kept clean for the players. If time allows, (it won’t) I’ll move completed material over to the Wiki proper.
There isn’t going to be a distinct order to this. I’ll be watching episodes of the older Anime, while playing Fate/EXTRA and keeping current on Fate/Zero, so everything’s going to be in a jumble. I’ll try to parse some annotations so people won’t be completely lost, but the point of the blogs is as a summary of interesting or useful information/facts anyway. Ideally, the blogs won’t be confusing to start with, but we’ll see how things turn out.
