Fate/Strange Fake is a novel by Ryohgo Narita, the author of Baccano.



The main setting is Snowfield (スノーフィールド, ?), a suburban town in western United States, north of Las Vegas. It is currently a thriving city with a population of 800,000, but it was previously an area home to a scant few indigenous peoples at the beginning of the 20th century. For over one thousand years, it had been the home of Tine Chelc's people, who protected it from settlers until the government and magi joined forces to overrun them to prepare for the False Holy Grail War. Though it was an area that had very few records before then, it rapidly began to develop as a boomtown seventy years ago, and the land went through a complete transformation by the time of the 21st century.

There is a vast ravine north of the city, a dense forest, unusual in such an arid area, to the west of the city, a tract of lakes and marshes east of the city, and a vast desert unfolding south of the city. It does not contain any farmland despite being surrounded by land suited for agriculture, standing out as a strange existence from its surroundings like a "cleft." It is described by some as a town with its sights set on the future, with the correct mixture of the natural and artificial.

The central district of the town appears as grand as New York or Chicago with towering buildings and a pair of six-lane causeways, the city's primary north-south and east-west arterial roads, meeting at a large scramble intersection near the city center. Both roads seem to form a crucifix from above, extending into all four of the surrounding environments. The city hall tower stands as the tallest building, the Center Park contains a fountain and is populated by families mid-day, and the Snowfield Central Hospital is a large, white building that looks like an art museum, furnished with the finest equipment in the city and various specialists.

The plot centers around a Grail War faultily copied from the Third Holy Grail War in Snowfield ten years after Fate/hollow ataraxia. 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, California, north of Las Vegas, which is surrounded by a forest, swamp, valley, and a desert in the respective cardinal directions to act 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 Langel and his pupil, Fardius, to investigate the city and the status of the war. Fardius, a spy from the US organization, has Langel sniped upon arrival, despite knowing that Langel 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.
