Fate/Apocrypha (フェイト/アポクリファ) is an upcoming light novel from Type-Moon's popular Fate/stay night franchise, written by Yuichiro Higashide and illustrated by Ototsugu Konoe. The first chapter was published on December 15, 2011, in the seventh volume of Type-Moon Ace magazine. The full novel was announced on December 2012.
The Fate/Apocrypha series is available in the following languages:
Fate/Apocrypha is a story based around a Holy Grail War separate from that of the five Fuyuki Wars, presented in Fate/stay night and Fate/Zero. It was originally a canceled project for an online game with various details and character designs collected in Fate/complete material IV Extra material. It was revived in light novel format in Volume 7 of Kadokawa Shoten's Type-Moon Ace publication. Yuichiro Higashide, the creator of Jack the Ripper's character design, wrote Act 1: Unbirth for the magazine. It focuses on Jack the Ripper and her Master, Rikudou Reika. Fourteen Servants will participate within this war, split into two factions, seven red Servants versus seven black Servants. The story would also be centered around the Heroic Spirit Joan of Arc.
Since there isn't any new chapter for now, I can't say 'Those who wish to contribute are asked to first notify a supervisor beforehand via the forum.'
