Carnival Phantasm Synopsis
How do you resolve a conflict between powerful spirits of famous heroes who compete for a prize capable of granting any wish? Fight a war that will cost blood, sweat, and tears? Too much work, how about a game show contest?
Carnivel Phantasm takes various characters from Type-Moon’s original works and puts them in a variety of lighthearted settings that parody their respective series. Watch Lancer suffer due to his lousy “Luck” stat, or watch the selfish King of Heroes gleefully kneel before a dominatrix King of Knights. Just remember to leave your sanity at the door before entering.
