The Fate franchise has stretched out across multiple media, offering myriad servants for you to summon to do your bidding. But in the next expansion of the franchise, your servant is… a pencil.
Fate/Grand Order – Summon Pencil Servant is being touted as an “analog” version of the digital game. This tabletop edition will replace the game’s servants with pencils, which players will roll to decide the outcome of battles. Little information is currently available on the system or how it will work beyond that.
The official site promises that more information on the game will be available later this year. For now it’s relatively bare, but it is intriguing to think of the popular series making its way into more “traditional” formats.
