Fate/Strange Fake is a novel series by Ryohgo Narita, the author of Baccano. Originally a single bonus novel included with TYPE-MOON Ace, it will be officially published as a series. It is unknown if it will be a continuation or reboot of the series.
The plot centers around a Grail War faultily copied from the Third Holy Grail War in Fuyuki. After the end of the third Grail War, an organization from the United States that has magi separate from the London based Mage Association as members took data from Fuyuki's Grail War and planned their own ritual. After seventy years, they used the city Snowfield as the Sacred Land for their own Grail War. They were unable to successfully copy every aspect of the ritual, which lead to it acting only as an imitation that has lost the Saber class and allowed for the summoning of strange Servants due to the definition of a "hero" being blurred.
The Mage's Association has sent Rohngall and his pupil, Faldeus, to investigate the city and the status of the war. Faldeus, a spy from the US organization, has Rohngall sniped upon arrival, despite knowing that Rohngall was simply a puppet. He announces that their Holy Grail War has been in development and that it is real, which causes an uproar at the Clock Tower, and wishes to "advertise" the project to the Association.
Due to the nature of the War, there is no Saber class Servant, but instead the seventh Master, the Player has the ability to summon different Servants for a brief time.
It was originally placed on Narita's homepage under the title of "Fake/states night", presented as a prologue and introduction for a role playing style game as an April Fool's joke. The text was taken down after April Fool's, but was later rereleased in the form of a novel included as an extra with the magazine TYPE-MOON Ace 2, with illustrations by Shidzuki Morii and an afterword by the author. It was announced that the series would be published, and a brief trailer was made.
