Welcome, welcome, enjoy my works!
Find inspiration in the Servants of a Maniac who loves weird creations!
Look at my attempts to make something more out of Foreigners, I am the local Lord of Foreigners after all!
But please, I do more than just Outer Gods x Humanity, I enjoy regular gods and special extra classes too.

The Dreaming King, The King of Dreams
Foreigner – Sigmund Freud
Own Opinion:
I think my sheet with the most logical background. Foreigner's life is a nice and solid background to grant us a reason to believe why exactly they were chosen. His connection to dreams, drugs and England works perfectly with Kuranes and I still stand to that. He is a non-combatant, I can envision his attacks in FGO, but not in a real story. First sheet, therefore likely to get a skill rework one day.


His Nightmare became true after his Death
Foreigner – Edvard Munch/Dorian Gray
Own Opinion:
I am kinda happy about him(, but kinda not now). I had a certain vision what Foreigner's could be and literally few weeks after FGO did it with Clytie Van Gogh. One of my more extensive sheets, i have a vision how he would fight, but idk how his skill set will hold up when I had more experience (yeah I will certainly overhaul him someday). Regarding his backstory I myself am still mixed. I stand that he is predestined to become a vessel of some sorts, why he became the vessel can come of as forced. I still like that they are so polar opposites and therefore kinda work together(I still like that). And i wasnt able to add a certain creepy factor in him that the "true" Foreigners kinda need. Munch is still one of my favourites in concept and I already have an idea for a summer version of him.


They should not have listened
Foreign Archer - Florence Foster Jenkins
Own Opinion:
For her I had a clear vision how she should fight, but the rest was so much work. I had literally a month to recreate her and I still feel something is missing. At first I wanted her Benefactor to be Ghroth, from him I had the NP, but in my research i got baited and he isnt that old like his "circle" suggested. I was happy to see the concept is not original to that universe and I could still use it. In the end the entity is not from HPL, just basically a predecessor. I put the most effort into the presentation of this sheet tho. Her review section was a hell to edit for me. Still happy about that.
(I could reuse that section for my later Hyas sheet, good to have a rough template for that. Still needs some major rework later. I wanted to just use Tru'Nembra, but Royds great Scriabin sheet just did not allow me to. The addition of Erich is something I still like, but Skarl doesnt really work, but I needed an outer entity to make her work. Perhaps I find somebody else, but I doubt it. Perhaps I just make her a Tru'Nembra Servant as well, there is nowhere state that an entity can only influence one Servant, in my universe Hastur had several as well. See what comes in the future.


The Light in the Dark
Foreigner - Amadeus (Lily)
Own Opinion:
I had so much fun creating him. The idea of making a servant for the song sounded childish, but cool. While researching it just all fell into place. The background of the song, my idea to use Paimon as a base, the skills, the relationships. Like a Servant made to be created. I am especially proud of his character. He even got the most reactions to my sheets so far. Ironic, because he was done the fastest of all my sheets so far. If i would change something it would be the pioneer skill, da vinci child has a similar skill that basically works the same and has the even better name "Dreams for the Stars". Missed opportunity.
And I am salty as heck i released it in the normal thread, if I had waited i could have released him for the "Dreamers" contest. God dammit.
(Yeah I still love him)


A Monster of Humanity
Foreigner - Adolf Hitler
Own Opinion:
I did that guy. I was surprised by myself. From a small note few weeks ago I made him happen in a bit over a day. I saw few other sheets on him and none really did what I had in mind for this monster. But he works perfectly for the concept idea that someone left humanity behind in the absolute wrongest sense. While there are many evil humans in history and some are in FGO and treated "neutral", it wouldnt fit him, because the distance to his actions and the knowledge about him is ever present. He is sadly one of the most famous or rather infamous persons in history and therefore in theory one of the strongest in the Fateverse despite his recency. But at the same time he is hated like barely any other person. So a radical way to balance it out - his curse. In terms of creepy Foreigner level he is pretty much up there. If I were to ever do the ideas i have for other iterations/Alts of my Servants, he could be among them, because I kinda like the concept of using his underlings as tools. Like Heydrich something that spits the gas or Keitel as another weapon or stuff.
(Yeah, he was controversial, at least he got some points in the contest back then. I still stand that my interpretation is the best I have seen here. Other writers here depicted him as bad ass or at a beach, I depicted him as the Monster he is. A Foreigner without Outer God, because he himself was so inhumane, the world let him basically go.


Money rules the world, but he rules over money
"Lancer" - "Trader"
Own Opinion:
"Trader" was a fuck ton of work. But I am happy how he turned out. I think I will keep the style of making one sheet for the Foreigner haters and the real sheet after that. I dont know if I can keep it up with most ideas tho.
(Yeah I did not keep that up. Hux does this better. Kamerad mentioned I shouldve moved the thematic to the Imaginary Number Space, fitting for the Stock Market, but my approach was the more old school variation. LB4.5 came out in the middle of my conceptualization anyways, too late for rework then. Still, I like his idea, perhaps I can use this in an Alt of him, I debated of making him a Ruler anyway, but the Ruler Class skill wouldve allowed him to cheat, which was not his style - at least not that way. My dialogue was a bit lengthy perhaps, I am not a writer so I stop doing that, but I stand with my ideas. I have interest in making Euclid with my Hastur background and perhaps a third one. Hastur will be seen again in other sheets for sure.)


The Maid/Hag of the last Bridge
Gatekeeper - Daena
Own Opinion:
What I can do other classes? Blasphemous. I made her on a whim because she sticked in my head. I like her concept as a mirror of the soul. Experimental formatting style.
(I guess i will stick to that style now. She was the humble start of my sheets in the future. I even got to give hints about my ideas for the Persian Mythology.)


One last Death...please
Berserker - Hyas
Own Opinion:
Damn I did that guy dirty. An obscure idea I had while working on Greek Mythology turned into this cruel fate. (I even got 3 points and mentions in the Horror Contest. Natsuki Subaru with much less hope. Poor Guy.)


Tasting the Cold
Foreigner - Sir John Franklin

Melting the Ice
Alter-Ego - Sir James Ross / Lady Franklin
Own Opinion on Franklin and Ross:
Their story intrigued me and I think I did a really good job portraying their connection of different levels and the concept behind Ithaqua. I had real fun creating both.
(Woooh I won the contest with Franklin. Got great amounts of praise for it, I am really proud and thankful for it. I hope that I can create other cool Foreigners, despite my list of targets shrinking. It will be hard, the last entities on my list dont seem to have that much deep lore to them, than Ithaqua. Still, Franklin has to be my best work so far, let's see how I will think of him in few months)


She likes to do her nails
Saber - Thrud
Own Opinion:
I like her. I was able to take a blank canvas of a no name in mythology and make something interesting related to the Nasuverse. And my first Knight Class is basically all three Knight classes at once. Saber because of her hammer, Lancer because of her Nails and Archer of course how she fights. I wonder if I can ever make a Modi sheet to finalize the Mjölnir Trio I envision.


Just like Snow
MoonCancer - Yuki-Onna
Own Opinion:
Something is missing. Trying to make a coherent story about an entity that is clearly meant to be a classification of Youkai all over the place in Japan is hard. I am not a writer like Morg or Frenzy, so it is hard for me to make it ecent enough. Still, I tried to make her a protector of children, despite being someone children need to be protected from. A tragic woman that wants to be the opposite of her origin, but can not escape it either.


The Spirit of Easter!
Alter-Ego - Eostre = Ishtar/Freyja )
Own Opinion:

A joke gone to far. Blame BnEl15 for that one. A throwaway random joke in the contest thread led to this. I actually wanted to elaborate what one could do to make his idea happen. I immediately thought of Eostre, scrolled down the wiki page and saw somehow the connection with Ishtar. I wanted to post the sources so another one can do this, but then the seed in head was sown. Really fun sheet that surprisingly worked out like i wanted in terms of what I try with my sheets
- telling a mythological background.


Teaser I wrote for the next four Servants

The Bloody Sword of War
Foreigner - Amir Timur

The Shining Shield of Light
Shielder - Canaan/Nekhbet

The Poisoned Lance of Chaos
Lancer - Alphard/Wadjet

The Brightest Light
Watcher - Ra

Own Opinion:
I like what I did here. It was a long term project for me that led to a Blog Post about Egypt and four sheets. Connecting Algol and the names he received with the Evil Eye concept across the globe and with the most famous beheader was fun. Algol was early on in my list, but finding fitting Servant took a while, I asked for inspiration back in Fall. Then discovering the Eye of Horus as the counter to the Evil Eye led me into the rabbit hole and the faceclaim of Alphard basically forced me to go with that overarching plot idea. I have the general gist for a story, but like with Frankling/Ross I likely wont write something bigger for them. What I sadly forgot to describe was how Apophis finds her end in the story.
In Mythology there was a ritual to dispose of them that I would mirror in combat against her:
  • Spitting Upon Apep
  • Defiling Apep with the Left Foot
  • Taking a Lance to Smite Apep
  • Fettering Apep
  • Taking a Knife to Smite Apep
  • Putting Fire Upon Apep


I vaguely imagine it as a process of undoing her birth with the spitting part representing Neiths spit and the fire as Atum/Ra. If in combat against her and fulfilling the steps in that order, will gradually weaken her, until Canaan/Nekhbet finishes her of with overloading her NPs.
Ra happened thx to BnEl15 great Watcher Jack, I almost discarded it, but his sheet inspired me to give it a chance. Faceclaims seem weird at first, but as Ra was summoned to make Canaan to Canaan/Nekhbet the appearances for the gods were necessary.


Demons of the Throne
Gatekeeper | Rider - The Pallanides

A Pillar of Music
Voyager | Lancer - Franz Liszt







Current Projects:

President of the Fallen Castle

Stellar Bulwark

Summer Troubles! Three of my Servants on vacation with Chaldea



Planned / worked at:

The One groomed to become a Beast

The Good and The Bad, controlled by The Ugly(Some things should not be forced in)

The One Fool that did not flee (Rider-like HPL Foreigner)

The One Genius that did flee (Ruler)

The Broken Man, determined to fight himself and his kind (Alter-Ego)

He who found the Counter Force ( idk yet )

The Royal Road to the Outer God (Archer/Caster-like HPL Foreigner?)

Concepts without vision so far (Servants and Themes I want to explore later):
(I have a weird way of finding my projects. I first find a concept i want to explore and then I find the possible candidates for it. It basically increases the workload)

Just the Guy chilling at the Nexus (probably Servant-Verse, therefore non-HPL Foreigner)

The Avatars of him (Foreigners)

The One that punched a hole in the Sky (non-HPL Foreigner)

Far Eastern Theater

Glass

HPL himself (Believe it or not, likely not Foreigner)

liminal spaces

Senses (Perfume/Smell, Silence/Sounds, different Servants probably)

Discarded for now:

The Ones that stirred the flames and invited them (After more research i saw that made me interested in the entities was too recent to use. I hope my ideas can be salvaged elsewhere. One I had was discarded one day later, because Nasu made some comments about that specific context. Fuck me, dude.)
"Spoiler" for those who wanna see my dead ideas

Nug and Yeb, the Twin Blasphemies connected to Franz Conrad von Hötzendorf and Gavrilo Princip. I wanted to use the imagery of Torch of Nug and Furnace of Yeb with the Biblical Vision of the Blazing Torch and Smoking Furnace as a rough basis to predict the First World War perhaps. Additionally i wanted to make it the "Blazing Torch without Flame" and the "Smoking Furnace without Fire" as a symbol that Nug and Yeb can somehow split Actio = Reactio into "Actio =" and "= Reactio". Gavrilo as the Torch who ignited the flames of war with his assassination in Sarajewo and Hötzendorf as the Furnace, who was ready to receive the flames of war, as an infamous warmonger. Gavrilo gained more fame over time, still being celebrated as a Serbian Hero, while Hötzendorf, who was celebrated as a tactical genius of his time, lost reputation for his actually bad tactics because he was stuck in his old ways and his major part in the July Crisis, that led to the start of WWI. I even considered splitting the timeline and not make them a Duo Servant, who hate each other, but seperate, but connected Servants, who work in different timelines. One with male and one with female Ritsuka, perhaps working together with another creator here. The reason would have been that cutting the Actio = Reactio formula is too big of a concept and it would only apply if the system was not isolated, so the effects had to me outsourced to other timelines. But the imagery of Torch and Furnace could not be properly streamlined for them and despite even proposing a Perpetual Motion Mana Mechanism between them, it simply did not work out to 100%. The Nail in the coffin was that the Torch and Furnace aspect of them, the core reason why i was interested in those no names who just act as parents to Cthulhu and Tsathoggua, was recent from the 90's. Too early for my taste.
Perhaps I can reuse some aspect of this rough concept later. I then wanted to use Gavrilo as a Grand Assassin Candidate, filling the vacancy of King Hassan with the core reason being that his 'stealthy operation' led to the death of all victims of WWI and arguably WWII. Gavrilo will always be the simples and most direct answer to "what started WWI" and when explaining WWII, one cant ignore WWI. So that was my idea. But then i saw that in 2020 Nasu himself said in an interview, that the Grand Assassin Throne is permanently vacant, because Hassan was the only candidate.
Fuck me.
