Naming Duel Law
Duel between youkai are cause for fear that the small land of Gensokyo may collapse.
However, if youkai are unable to fight, their power will gradually vanish.
Therefore, I propose the following contract to allow duels.
That youkai can easily cause disasters.
That humans can easily resolve disasters.
That deciding victors solely based on strength is unacceptable.
That there is nothing superior to elegance and thought.
Give a name and a meaning to the elegance of each duel.
The number of naming duels to be fought must be announced beforehand. Relying on stamina and repeating an attack is not allowed.
Do not use meaningless attacks. Meaning is equivalent to power.
If you are defeated in a naming duel, acknowledge the loss even if you have remaining strength. If victorious against a human, you may not kill them.
Write down the name of the duel on paper like a contract. With that, all of the aforementioned regulations become absolute. That paper will be called a "spell card."
For more specific details on the duel process, discuss with the shrine maiden later.
— Draft of Spell Card Rules
"Touhou really is the internet's universal solvent."
“No one shall be able to drive us from the wonderland that ZUN created for us”
"The Touhou Project is a series of danmaku shmups where there is more than meets the eye. Like Transformers, but cooler. Nothing is cooler than giant robots? Well, let me inform you that there are giant robots in Touhou. ZUN is prepared for everything."
"Loli-tastic melodies like this are what I'm best at, so I had a lot of fun composing this."
"This [Hakurei] barrier kept the outside world's common sense outside, leaving what lacked common sense inside, in Gensokyo."
Dream divertisement, a memory of a world of morning mist in an illusionary world.
This present transient world, puts it on crumbling sand.
A fabricated dream, its history of an ancient mystic world.
The shining Sun, casts over a vanishing town.
Is it an illusion, or a castle on sand?
Till daybreak, this dream is, a butterfly dream.
Dream divertisement, with the conspicuous color of an illusionary scarlet mansion.
This present transient world, puts it on a cold-hearted stone.
Daydream's, its fairy tale of an ancient beautiful capital.
The shining Sun, casts over an impurifying town.
