Default Assistance Building A Queen

I have this base, and I am struggling to flesh out in depth what exactly I wish to do.

The Queen of the Faeries (Titania) is trying to re-establish herself back in the mortal realm after exile. She is slowly transforming an abandoned castle and surrounding grounds to reflect her castle and the needs she has.

The longer the PCs don't stumble upon her, the more full her effect of terraforming, and the more powerful her and her minions become.

She has the following template as a base.

Caster Servant: Cost 275 Points


Magic Resistance 12 (B rank) 24 points
IQ + 2 40 points
Hard to subdue 4 8 points
Spirit Form 61 points
Skill ranks Class Knowledge 20 points
Territory Creation Rank C 17 points
Magic Item Creation Rank C 14 points

Thuamatology, 3 ranks, 4 points
Occultism 1 rank, 1 point
Alchemy, 1 rank, 1 point
History (mages), 1 rank, 1 point

Spells (each bought at rank 1)
Seek air
Purify air
Seek fire
Ignite fire
Seek earth

Accessibility useless within 5 seconds of combat (-40%),

Invisibility (Switchable) 33 points
Accessibility useless within 5 seconds of combat (-40%),
Takes Extra time 1 (-10%)
Extended (infra and ultra)
Both linked, with un switch-able (+10%)


She can also call upon a minion to become a Champion Knightling, and the creature gains the following:
Blessing of the Fey
A Knighting by the Summer Queen

After 5 days:
Truthfulness [-5]
Serendipity 1[15]
Magery + 1 [15]
Speak with plants [15]
Charisma 1 [5]

After 15 days:
trickster [-15]
Regeneration normal [13]
Walk on air [20]
Magery +2 [30]

Luck [15]

After 25 days:
Xenophilia [-10]
Absent-Mindedness [-15]
Regeration Extreme [63]
magery + 2 [30]
Extrodinary luck [15]
Super luck [100]


Including magic items she has 1100 points to play with. Drawbacks can't exceed more than 290 points.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi there,

I am not any kind of expert on fantasy games, but I think that you may want to add a really high level of Status (probably 8), and more than likely you could really use Reputation and Wealth too (this depends on if her reputation is good or bad, maybe she has multiple reputations... and you need to consider if she is personally wealthy or not). If she is some kind of an army commander, or she actually rules the government (apart from being the queen, which I see as little more than a title), you would actually want to set up some level of Rank (Administrative and Military) too, according to the Arithmetics of Rank (depending on the size of her kingdom) under the Social Engineering book.

Thanks for reading :)

What is the meaning of the letter ranks?

I believe it indicates that this faerie queen is taking the role of a Servant of the Caster class in an instance of the Fuyuki Holy Grail War
as featured in the fate/stay night visual novel/media franchise. The abilities of Servants are traditionally given somewhat-arbitrary letter grades.

It's an internal campaign notation. As mentioned above it's a campaign set in the Fate universe.
