I know there's another game like this going, but it's IM based and so I wish to make an RP based one. And so, here we are, making a new Yugioh game by my rules, just as Seto Kiaba makes his own rules when he's making one of his many grand championships lol. I don't plan to implement the Forbidden list, but I will be limiting what is allowed. For example, any card in the Forbidden list can be used, but only ONE card can be allowed in any one person's deck, meaning if I had Black Luster Soldier, no one else could use it.
Speaking of the Forbidden List, this is the list I was able to pull from the other game of this and so I post it here for others to use.http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/limited/
Forbidden/Limited List of Yugioh cards.
There's more, but first a few ground rules. Every post must contain in bold LP, attack/defense of every monster as well as name of said monster(s). Anything else can be easily looked up if it's a card in the database I am also providing for quick reference. Anyway, the usual rules apply, field spells power up/lower specific monsters, spell cards, trap, all the rest are normal use and their normal rules apply.http://www.yugiohcardguide.com/Yugioh English Opening 6:Dawn of the Duel
For those brand new to the game, here is the rulebook from the official website itself.http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/rulebook/
Important UPDATES coming up.
First - in order to promote a more casual and stylized manner of deck building. We want to make it so that you can only have 1 copy of any card in your deck. That way, some people won't take decks off the internet to max out their 'power glove' and walk over others that want to play with their favorite cards. It will also allow for a lot more expression of your characters.
next, since we'll want to make up some naughty cards - we need to make sure they're fair. thus, any naughty card you invent should be IDENTICAL in mechanics to an existing card. Meaning, you can create the Shining Lust Fairy - but it needs to have stats identical to an existing monster. Like the blue eyes white dragon. You can create a bondage tentacle trap, but it needs to have stats identical to an existing trap - like trap hole. WHAT the cards do should mirror an existing Non-forbidden card, but how they do it can be kinky and naughty and entirely up to you. also, you can't have both the naughty version and the nice version of a card in your deck. The singleton rule applies here too. So no Blue-Eyes White Dragon AND Shining Lust Fairy...both with 8 stars and 3000atk/2500def
The GOOD news is, that with the singleton rule comes a lot of free deck space. Now we can drop back down to 40 but have THREE times as much room, instead of just doubling to 80 and having 2x. good?
Now... we'll be keeping track of this through creating virtual decks. Meaning we type out what cards are in our deck and label them 1-40, or 1-456 (no upper deck size limit)
Then you use a handy dice-rolling program on Elliquiy or somewhere else on the net to roll 1d40 (or 1d456). The number you roll is the card you draw! Then, just keep track of which cards you've drawn and re-roll if there are any repeats. Stairc has worked another trading card game RP through this system and it works. Your rolls will be based on the honor system for now, and we're confident in everyone's moral integrity. Just know that if you have a run of AMAZING luck, even with the singleton rule in effect... Well, we might be left to wonder.
Finally, the story will be based in a duel-academy for now, it's an excellent way for our characters to mix and mingle before the real arc begins. This duel academy is a step higher than the one shown in GX. That was card game high school, but this will be card game college. Darker yes, more serious yes, but there is still a lot of room to have fun. You might want to see about deciding how your characters know each other right now - so you can hit the ground running. At first, it will be very sandboxy, so duel who you like, for what reasons you like... then, the larger story-lines will emerge.
Sound good? What are your thoughts? Let us know!
Vergil1989 and Stairc approved lol.
Ok, important updates time!Tournament in the works! Prepare your strongest decks!
The rules are a combination of Battle City rules and the Duelist Kingdom setup. Anyone and everyone can be challenged. Collect ten star chips to have a chance at the ultimate prize, a new God Card! Before that though, your strongest card can be anted up for a chance to win a new series of cards called Avatars! The Teachers and Assistant Teachers will be given these mysterious cards and they will ante them up for your own rare cards, but there's more to it than that but the rest you'll have to wait and see about.
If you duel without an Avatar Card in your deck or in your possession, you won't lose any cards if you lose the duel. However, your Star Chips are still up for grabs. On the flip side, if you win a duel, then you will get an Avatar from your opponent, so only the strong need apply. Only Avatars will be able to be anted up so you won't have to worry about destroying your deck if you lose.
The grand prize of this Tournament, (which doesn't have a name yet but we'll get that eventually lol,) will be a new Goddess Card! Relena, the Bringer of the Dawn!
Hey everyone, as Jason has mentioned – the first arc of the story involves a tournament in the style of the yugioh classics. However, we don’t expect you to duel for nothing! The main purpose of the tournament is to decide who is worthy of receiving the grand prize – a rare card unlike any other. This card was commissioned and created, along with the avatar cycle, by the sponsor of the tournament… A mysterious woman who gave them to the academy’s chancellor for the school’s use, but with very specific instructions. These cards were to be earned by the school’s best duelists by anteing them against each other… And the grandest prize of all is for the winner of the tournament alone.
Her name is Relena. And this is her card.
Relena, The Bringer Of Dawn
Attribute - Light
Level - 12
Type – Goddess
Relena cannot be normal summoned or set. She can be special summoned by returning three creatures you control to the deck.
When Relena enters the battlefield, pay any multiple of 1000 life-points. Her attack and defense are each equal to the total life paid this way.
At any time, you may pay 2500 life-points. If you do, cards you control cannot be destroyed this turn.
At the beginning of your standby phase, you may put up to two 500/500 spirit tokens into play. Then, you may gain 200 life-points for each creature you control.
Yes, that is the grand prize of the tournament – Relena, The Bringer of Dawn. She is the benevolent protector of all she holds sacred, and no price is too high to pay for that. She even brings you life itself, as long as you control creatures. And she provides you with up to two a turn in that regard, which can be kept for defense, used to buttress an attack or used for an effect.
Relena is truly a worthy goddess, at home in nearly any deck, and a worthier prize for the winner of the tournament. It doesn’t have to be darkest before the dawn.
