Hi, I thought it would be fun to have a Yu-Gi-Oh Roleplay so I am creating one. The world you will be playing in is not in any specific place or time, but is not in continuity with any of the Yu-Gi-Oh series. No Yu-gi-oh characters will make appearences, though common tropes from the series such as the heart of the cards and the shadow realm may appear. The setup for the game is that the card series is brand new, and has never been plaid before. However, the 9 year world champion of every card game, board game, and strategy / tactics event has created the game and is holding a tournament to challenge any who feel they can beat him. Obviously most players will be tacticians, but he is offering a ridiculous amount of award money so it is possible other types may show up. You may have noticed that I said he was the 9 year champion for all of those events. This is because before 9 years ago he had never been hear of and nine years ago he took the world by storm. He's only interested in games though and all of his substantial wealth seems to either be self-generated or tournament winnings. His name is Juan Perish officially, but nobody has seen his face because he likes to play using a computer program and associates. He goes by "the King of Games". Yes, this game will be incredibly campy. This is in keeping with the heart of the series.
Cards can be drawn from any series, but not at first! See Rules for Details. I've only seen the first series so if you are going to try to match the mood of one of the series stick with that one. That being said, there will be no requirement to do so.
For Applications I'll be wanting Name, D20 Modern Class, your 3 pack types you'll want to draw from. The type of deck you will ideally be building (I'll help you along in that direction), an appearence, personality, and background. Any or all of this can be in secret and it can be as much or as little as you want.
Also, I'll be starting the game a week from today. Not much time? Well, I will be accepting players after that as well so it should be fine. I won't be running the game with a specific number of players in mind, because if there are allot I can simply rely more on pvp to keep some occupied and if there are less I can simply make more npcs. Rather, I will accept any player whose application I like an deny any player whose app I don't like. I will not beat around the bush. If I don't like your app I will tell you. You may still try to make another app, or fix the problems I have with the first, problems that will probably be stated in vague useless language like "I don't know... it just didn't feel right." I can occasionally be evil like that.
I hope we all have allot of fun and I'm excited to be running this. With that in mind, let's keep the namecalling and taunting to a minimum. Some people can't handle it, and I don't want those people scared off. Yes, I am a carebear. I care.
EDIT: I have made a decision in regards to banned cards. Every player will be allowed a single banned card slot that will be able to hold a single banned card in their deck. These cards will go by their other title 'forbidden cards' ingame and will be extremely rare and sought after. Epect to mostly find them on mean looking npcs. I did this because I know allot of players really loved an old card that they can't use anymore because it got banned. Be warned. Your opponents will also have a single banned card in their possession and sooner or later someone will get change of hearted.
Hard to believe it's already been nine years since Juan Perish, better known as the King of Games annihilated all competition in every perceivable form of tactical gameplay. Nobody's ever seen the King of Game's Face but everyone knows his logo as is portrayed so often on the screen from which he issues his moves to his employees. Indeed, such is the mystery of the identity of the King of Games that a constant series of investigations have been placed into whether or not he might in fact be multiple people. No answer has been conclusive. For nine years, Perish has kept the game world under his palm, without ever playing a single role outside of game participant. Now, suddenly and without justification, the King of Games has changed the rules. Using his wealth and his reputation as a hero of Japan and cultural icon, the King of Games has cardoned off parts of Japan for a nation-wide tournament. The winner will earn a chance to play against and meet himself, as well as a grand prize of 2.5 million dollars, enough to buy one's heart's desires. The name of the game is one that nobody has ever heard of, and presumably one that the King of Games or his company has invented. It is called Yu-Gi-Oh.
