This role play is made for Yu-Gi-Oh fans, but non-fans can play too! I'd advise you look at this quickly though (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Yu-Gi-Oh!_Duelist have a brief look at the plot, rule will be explained). I have some plot ideas, but would like other peoples too. At the moments this is just an interest check and character creation, so the plot is still being decided If interested please comment that you are, at some point make your character. Plot ideas will come later. (Yes, i'm stating the obvious, deal). I might make another thread for plot discussion if this one gets enough interest. Firstly , the rules we will be using are the battle city rules, also known as super expert rules (they're not as scary as they sound). When creating your deck please keep that in mind. The rules for those who know how to play are here (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Battle_City_Rules), ignoring the locator card part. If you don't, please read this first (http://www.wikihow.com/Play-Yu-Gi-Oh!). If you have any other uncertainties on how to play, please PM me. I'm sticking to this set of rules, even if we use the GX time frame. If this creates any uncertainties of what's allowed, i'll be the one who make final decisions. When creating decks i'll allow cards from the original Yu-Gi-Oh series, the duelist series, the millennium world series, and the GX series. I will not allow cards that are only in the R series, the 5Ds series, or the Zexal series. This decision if final, there will be no changing it. I made this decision for a reason, if you have a problem then go role play some where else. There is a card list here (http://www.yugiohcardguide.com/card_list.html) and here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Yu-Gi-Oh!_cards), but i'm not sure if they are totally reliable. Instead I advise you to base your OCs deck off your own if you have one. If you don't, base it off a starter deck or a characters deck and adapt it a bit. If your not sure your decks ok, please PM me and I will tell you. How you draw when battling is yet to be decided. I will either randomly number your cards and let opponent order the numbers (like shuffling), or you can decide what you draw on your turn (like how the mangaka plans it). I will allow you guys to vote when the plots being decided. I will allow tag teams fights, and a maximum of 3 duels happening at a time. The role play will be based half on dueling, and half exploring the plot. When it's your turn to post in a duel please only post ONE phase, unless there will be a phase with nothing happening. I might decide to put the duels on separate threads. You guys can also vote this when the plots being decided. There might be a vote on the time frame too (unlikely though) Every body is allowed ONE character. There will be no canon characters, OC's only. There will be no character deaths, and keep all the content to PG-13 like the series. Try not to create characters like other peoples or a canon character. I'm still deciding the time frame (duelist or GX) so I wont ask for a history (I find them boring and a bit pointless any way). I won't ask where they live either, since this will be decided by the time frame (they will all live in the same place anyway). Character template: Name: (First then second) Age: (Don't mention birth dates until the time frame is decided) Likes: (At least 5 likes) Dislikes: (At least 5 dislikes) Personality: (At least 3 lines) Experience: (How long has your character been playing with monster cards? How good are they? Have they ever won any competitions? It might be a good idea to base this a bit off how much you know about monster cards) Deck: (Yes, you need to list the name of every card in your deck. Minimum of 40, maximum of 60. Minimum of 1 rare, maximum of 5 because i'm nice) Appearance: (Either 3 lines or a picture. They must be human, and they don't need to look like duelists.) Any other notable things: (Weapons they own that aren't guns, pets, family, or what ever you feel is important to say about them. You aren't required to fill this in, i'ts optional) I'll make my character when I have enough interest. RULE EDIT! CHANGES ABOVE INFO A BIT! IMPORTANT SO READ: If a card is rare in any pack, it's rare for this. We shall use it's highest rarity rating EVER. As part of your 5 rares (yes, i'm still being to nice :P) you can have up to 5 normal rares, up to 3 super rares, and one ultra rare. No ultimate, parallel, or ghost rares. I've read the manga, I know there are deaths (though i skipped parts where my phone spazzed), but in general it's PG-13 which was what i meant it was like in the series, not the death. Any way, the whether or not my reference was correct doesn't matter, still no death and sticking to PG-13. I assumed people would be clever enough/have enough common sense to know not to god-mod decks as I won't allow it, but I shall confirm it now. A forbidden cards list is being made. Even if a cards not on the list, and I don't want a person to use it, I will tell them to take it out. This isn't supposed to be perfect first time round, i'm expecting a fair bit of editing. I shall choose the shuffling rule then, where the player doesn't choose card order. That way they won't always have the right cards to defend. I will tell them the cards they draw each time (annoying, but fairest way). I will do my best to monitor every bodies decks, deciding if they can have certain cards or not, so please join in. Cards that are forbidden are listed here: http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/limited/. What ever the page says it is, it is. Fusion rules here (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Fusion_Monster).
