Key Cards:

Brief Bio:

1.The minimum for a post will is either two paragraphs or ten well-written sentences, whichever you're more comfortable with.

2. Duels will be on Dueling Network and observed by the GM.

3. No smut. PERIOD. These characters are all 14 or 15 years old. Romance is at your discrimination, however.

4. If you wish to initiate a Shadow Duel or Shadow Game, please check with the GM.

5. None of the "canon" GX students (i.e. Jaden Yuki, Chazz Princeton) will exist in this RP.

6. The Millennium Puzzle, God Cards, Sacred Beasts, and any "special" cards past the GX era are off limits, with the exception of one Synchro Monster.

7. "Anti Decks" are not allowed. To be clear, an Anti Deck is a deck specifically made to defeat the deck of another character.

8. Have fun!
1. All of the duels will be conducted over Dueling Network if between OCs and major NPCs.

2. Duels with minor NPCS or duels with little immediate relevance can be summarized in-post, so long as an outcome is agreed on between the parties involved.

3. Decks will be constucted on Dueling Network. Whenever you make modifications to your deck, please update your deck screenshot on your CS.

4. Shadow Duels will primarily be initiated by NPCs, though OCs will sometimes be able to initiate them.

5. Add "Archspell" on Dueling Network as soon as you join. This is the GM's account.
Shadow Games
1. A Shadow Game is an alternative to a duel. For an example of Shadow Games, use the playlist below.

Yugioh season 0 - YouTube

2. The party that loses a Shadow Game goes through a Punishment Game, which lasts as long as the winner decrees. The Punishment Game is typically a mental illusion, whereas they feel the physical effects but are not inflicted with any injuries.

3. Shadow Games are typically initiated by those who wield Millennium Items, but like with Shadow Duels they can be initiated by a variety of OCs and NPCs.

4. There are no limits as to what can become a Shadow Game. Something as simple as rolling a die to a custom game made on the spot are included in the vast ocean of possibilities.

5. Like with Shadow Duels, Shadow Games will primarily be initiated by NPCs, though OCs will sometimes be able to initiate them.
Skype Group
This RP group has a group on Skype for OOC, plot discussions, casual duel chat, etc.! If you wish to be part of the group, please add the GM, AceSorcerer, whose handle on Skype is the same as on Iwaku.
-AceSorcerer (Iwaku/Skype) = Archspell (Dueling Network)
-Crysodic (Iwaku/Dueling Network) = mr_dr_walrus (Skype)
-Under the Stars (Iwaku) = under_the_stars2 (Skype) =Star-sama (Dueling Network)

The Ancient Egyptian Influence
The Cult of Aten
Founded by a mysterious High Priest known as Akhet, the Cult of Aten formally rose to power in 1353 BC when the pharaoh Akhenaten assumed the throne of ancient Egypt. Believing in the only sun-disk god, Aten, the Cult of Aten sought to translate the Millennium Spellbook and send the world into eternal Light. The wielders of the Millennium Items, led by Tutankhamen, soon defeated the Cult of Aten. The Cult officially fell from power after Tutankhamen assumed the role of pharaoh and restored the traditional worship of the gods

The Cult of Aten, however, survived to the modern day as it revived the founder of its movement, and has various members across the world as the Cult searches once more for the Millennium Spellbook...
The Eye of Anubis
The Eye of Anubis is a broken version of the Eye of Wdjat. It appears on all the Millennium Items, except the Key and the Puzzle (which has the Eye of Wdjat). The Eye will appear upon the foreheads of Millennium Item users whenever they activate their items.

The Millennium Items
The seven Millennium Items and their wielders are as follows:

-The Millennium Eye (Re Vitakat)
-The Millennium Key (Shade Murdock)
-The Millennium Necklace (Saria Vitakat)
-The Millennium Puzzle (N/A)
-The Millennium Ring (Kamui Kyouko)
-The Millennium Rod (Nesshin Tarang)
-The Millennium Scale (Reserved)

For information on the Millennium Items, click this link
The Millennium Spellbook
The Millennium Spellbook is an ancient tome used to create the Millennium Items at the cost of ninety-nine human souls. With various spells yet to be translated, it is believed that the Millennium Spellbook can grant godlike power to whomever can wield it.

[BCOLOR=transparent]Special Items[/BCOLOR][BCOLOR=transparent]: The Millennium Key, Duel Academy Duel Disk[/BCOLOR]

[BCOLOR=transparent]-Granted by the Millennium Key:[/BCOLOR][BCOLOR=transparent] Its primary unique ability is the power to unlock the doors of a person's soul, giving the user access to the "[/BCOLOR][BCOLOR=transparent]Room of the Soul[/BCOLOR][BCOLOR=transparent]," where their thoughts can be observed, or the "room" can even be "redecorated", allowing the user to alter a person's personality. The brainwashing process can be undone when the victim touches the Key. Also, the controller can manipulate and destroy the personality. Additionally, it can allow the user make himself/herself (and others) invisible to physical sight, and allows them to sense any disruption of the Millennium Items' mystical energies that would be caused by an item being taken from its rightful owner. The owner of this item may also force images, scenes, or visions into the minds of others, as well as communicate telepathically with others. The Millennium Key also grants the ability to administer Shadow Duels, Shadow Games, and Punishment Games.[/BCOLOR]

[BCOLOR=transparent]Brief Bio: [/BCOLOR]
Chosen to wield the Millennium Key as a child living in the United States, Shade soon bonded with his Millennium Item and the spirit of Exodia within. When his father was moved to Japan to further act as a test pilot, the family went with him. He became distant after his father died, with Exodia becoming both a friend and a father figure. He devoted the following years to study and dueling, eventually being accepted into Duel Academy.

-Due to years of study, Oromos is fluent in ancient Egyptian and is extremely well-versed in Egyptology. Besides dueling, his dream is to become an Egyptologist.

-He has an eidetic memory.
-He served Tutankhamun in his previous life as the Millennium Priest Anubeon and wielded the Millennium Key in that life as well.

Give me a sec to make a deck. It's been a LONG time since I played Duel Monsters, and I need to refamiliarise myself with the rules. If I understand correctly, nothing past GX can be used? So no Synchro or XYZ or those ridiculous Pendulum thingies?
Correct. Do you wish to be on the Skype group, as well?

Alright. Can I reserve the Millenium Ring? I'm going to have my character converse a little with an evil Bakura. Hmm coming up with an original deck is very difficult it seems...

God damn it Lightsworns even without being synchro were introduced at the beginning of 5Ds.. this is very hard given all my decks were synchro.

Can my character have two decks? Can't decide between which archetype to use.
Last edited:
It's alright. And it won't have Yami Bakura, but a "Yami" version of your character will take its place. It'll be up to you whether the "Yami" version serves the Shadow or Light. After all, the Millennium Ring splits the soul in two. And the Lightsworns are fine.
Thanks! Since the wiki says it still contains Yami Bakura I thought it'd have been OK. I had been planning on quickly replacing him with Yami-my-character though anyway.
And your character can have two decks, its perfectly fine. I have two, myself, but the other one belongs to our antagonist.
Name: Kamui Kyouko (Yami Kyouko)

Gender: Female

Age: 15


As Yami Kyouko, here eyes become emotionless and her irises turn purple. Her hair becomes black, but retains the same style.


Height: 158cm

Personality: Kyouko is typically a quiet and logical person. She doesn't mind losing duels since she's fully aware that she's not very good at applying her knowledge to a real situation. She is highly intelligent and analytical, although she also has an obsessive side that she tries her best to hide. Even while hiding it, she has a great attachment to her cards, and refuses to change her deck even though a different one might considerably improve her abilities.
Yami Kyouko is much different to her host. She is fierce and unpredictable, and somewhat sadistic. Being one half of Kyouko's personality though, she does still have a lot of respect for her host, whom she considers her only friend. They often converse in the late evening when Kyouko heads into her own brain-space, using a technique she learnt from an odd white-haired passerby. Yami Kyouko can be a nice person, but only when talking to her host.

Special Items: Millenium Ring

- Ring points to what she desires (also has a Gaydar installed, due to a previous owner)
- Can transform into Yami Kyouko (Sometimes at will, sometimes Yami will forcefully take over)
- Has the ability to initiate a Shadow Game while in normal form and using her Lightsworn Deck. This field will automatically activate when she uses the card Seal of Orichalcos. In this zone, duelists feel physical pain when taking life point damage.
- Has the ability to initiate a shadow game while in Yami form and using her Cyber deck. The zone comes into being through the summoning and banishment of 2 Cyber Valleys (through their own effect. They can be banished at different times. A third Valley will increase the potency of the zone). Though the zone has no effect on the actual duel, the arena it creates is particularly horrific in nature and resembles some kind of machine graveyard, with far too many of those eerie CRT monitors left permanently on static.

Rank: Yellow, though due to extensive knowledge rather than actual talent. She also tends to not wear her uniform, except in class.

Duel Spirit Familiar: None

Decks: Keycards are highlighted in the decklists below the images. I tried to stick to cards that were available in GX and non-synchro related early 5DS cards but it's hard to tell which are which.

Light's Crusade (look at the decklist too since I edited it while I was listing it and it's a pain taking another screenshot and cropping it appropriately)

Side deck:

Extra Deck:

Brief Bio: Kyouko is a typical person, with a typical background. Her father is one of the right-hand men of Pegasus. He is working on the development of new types of deck that will be released in the considerable future, including Synchro monsters. He is responsible for giving Kyouko her Lightsworn deck, which contains cards that the public aren't able to obtain yet - the only copies are those in her deck. As for how she came into possession of the Millenium Ring? Well, it turns out that "replica" cursed artifacts are all the rage nowadays. Only problem is, a certain street vendor failed to notice that the item in his shop window was the real deal.

Name: Leon Deviant

Gender: Male

Age: 15


Height: 5'7''

Personality: (optional)

Special Items: Duel disk that looks like a wing

Abilities: Sees Duel spirits

Rank: Ra Yellow

Duel Spirit Familiar: Harpie queen

Deck name: Harpie's Flock


Key Cards: Harpie Ladies

Brief Bio: Leon actually had zero interest in duel monsters growing up. His father and mother were both bright teachers teaching at non-duel schools. He when not in school would go on trips with his cousin. He explored all kinds of places, dangerous and safe, and oh did he love it. At twelve his father gave him Harpie Queen after finding it thrown away and still in good condition. He figured the boy could build a deck around her and join in the game. Of course at first Leon did not care and just kept the card on him to make his father happy since the man had seemed so happy about giving him it. Then on a trip with his cousin, he nearly died, but Harpie Queen's spirit appeared to him and had warned him of danger, thus saving his life. It was after this incident that he got into the game, making a deck of harpies with the help of his duel spirit. And once he got into the game he fell in love with it, and thus decided he wanted to take his harpies to the world stage and entered Duel Academy.

I think so - the Millenium Rod is still unclaimed after all, and there seems not to be a limit on non-item'd players.

Also, I suppose this question is more for the GM, but are all cards after GX banned or just the ones that are for Synchro/XYZ/Pendulum summoning?
Since I've been allowed to make a Lightsworn deck, it seems that at least cards from early 5DS are acceptable. I reckon generic trap and magic cards should be alright, but if you want to use a certain archetype you probably ought to check for that archetype individually rather than just posing a general question about card sets.
