Yu Gi Oh!: East Academy Interest Check/Signups:

 1 desdendelle, Sun, 24th Jun '12 2:18:42 PM from /dev/null Get RP Mod Relationship Status: What is this thing you call love?
Canta nastar alta tera

Signups are closed.

Well, as some (and by some I mean the few people in This Very Wiki who both RP and like Yu-Gi-Oh!) people know, four Yu-Gi-Oh! RPs were hosted here in the fora. Sarcastically Insane's Duel Academy's two instances were Cancellated, Michael DJ 54's Yu-Gi-Oh! UA died, and Iniquitus The Third's Frozen Academy is dead since he disappeared in March.
So I decided to start a new one, because I really miss their Hammy declarations and general silliness; hopefully it won't meet an untimely end like its predecessors.
This RP will be set in an Alternate Universe to the main continuity, mainly to avoid silly card limits. It will take place, as the thread's title says, in East Academy, conveniently set in the Negev desert, Israel (Canon doesn't mention anything about East Academy except for its name)*. You are going to RP its students. There is going, of course, to be a plot, but for now it is secret; its first arc would be an obligatory Tournament Arc.
Now, some technical stuff.
  • First of all, doineedaname is the co-GM. Teh Stanman is the GM due my lack of free time. I, Teh Stanman and Nick The Swing are the GMs.
  • Standard RP rules apply. They can be found here.
  • No dropping out without warning; it tends to greatly inconvenience the other players if you just vanish off the face of the earth without explanation, and leaves the rest of us in an awkward position as to how your abandoned character should be dealt with. If you plan on leaving or know that you will have to give the game up at some point, please, tell us so that it can be incorporated and dealt with in terms of plot and characters.
  • While I don't expect Sullen-length posts, I do expect people to know their SPaG*. I'm a bit of a Grammar Nazi, and I really can't stand extremely bad SPaG. This is where you can get help with English.
  • Your Decks must comply with the Advanced Format, though both TCG and OCG cards are allowed. The rule of thumb is: If you can duel with the card in DN's Rated section, it's fine. New applications should use the September format, even though the rest of the decks are still in March format. note  The exceptions are the following archetypes, which are forbidden for plot reasons: Exodia, including Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord, Exodia Necross and Exxod, Master of the Guard; the Egyptian God Cards; the Wicked Gods; the Sacred Beasts/Three Phantom Demons; and the Aesir.
  • Also, it would be nice if you'd not use Meta decks such as Inzektors, Dark Worlds, et cetera. The point of the RP is character interaction (and the obligatory Large Ham), not winning duels. You've DN* for the latter.
  • Last but not least, I know Israeli politics are a touchy subject, so no mentioning them. Any needed reference to them would be Hand Waved away. We're here to have fun, not to argue about politics.

Sheet incoming!
  • Name: Fairly obvious, I believe.
  • Age: Between 14 and 18.
  • Gender: Are you a boy? Or are you a girl?
  • Duel Disk: You're allowed to customise it. The academy provides standard disks to those students who prefer not to use a custom one.
  • Dorm: Will be decided by me based on your character's personality. Their Deck also impacts their placement. The three dorms are Earth, Sky, and Sea.
  • Appearance: both a description or an image are fine.
  • History: What happened in the character's life before they came to East Academy?
  • Duel Spirit: You are allowed one, but it isn't obligatory. However, its card must be in the character's deck. And, please, no Yubel, since I don't want to have problems with Canon (though you can still construct a Deck around her card if so you wish).
  • Deck: You should use the following format. Links to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki are nice but not obligatory (I know how much of a chore that is).

    • Grand Total:
  • Other: Anything that does not go into the other bullets but you still want to mention about your characters should go here.
  • Timezone: What timezone are you in? Mainly so I could make plans on how to share the workload with doineedaname. If you're up at weird hours (like me being up at the middle of the night) please note so we'll be able to plan accordingly.

List of accepted characters: Pending approval:
  • Lucia Vasilescu (???), played by Motree Spot taken.
Open spots: 0.

Are custom cards allowed? (for a certain extent of custom; since I'm sure a mix of archetypes will be frowned upon, I'll have to cough up support cards)

I prefer to leave fan-made cards out of this, since they are messy to balance. Though, you can post a decklist and I can try to help with it.

BFS Enthusiast
  • Name: Art Caltenrich
  • Age: 16
  • Gender: Male
  • Duel Disk: A black and white duel disk, rather like the duel academy one, just with a black and white color scheme.
  • Dorm: Sea
  • Appearance: A rather tall and muscular young man, he has a tall, somewhat dark, and handsome appearance, he has long, dirty blond hair, light blue eyes that show an idealistic personality, if one follows the idea that eyes are the window to the soul. He prefers wearing a white sleeveless shirt, long shorts, and sneakers. He usually walks with a confident stride.
  • History: He has had to come to terms with a truly awkward name, and has since always registered for everything as Art, instead of his full name. His parents have achieved a measure of wealth, though they are not close to the heavy weights of finance. They tend to embarrass him with various gifts, and he loves them very much, despite the embarrassing thing.
  • Duel Spirit: he currently does not have one.
  • Deck: Warriors of Light

  • Monsters: 22
    • Monsters:
  • 3x Marauding Captain
  • 3x Heroic Challenger Double Lance
  • 2x Heroic Challenger Extra Sword
  • 3x Heroic Challenger Spartas
  • 2x Heroic Challenger Sword Shield
  • 2x Heroic Challenger Warhammer
  • 2x Koaki Meiru Bergzak
  • 2x Command Knight

  • 3x Heroic Champion Kusanagi
  • 2x Blade Armor Ninja
  • 2x M-X-Saber Invoker
  • 2x Gagaga Gunman
  • Grand Total: 42

  • Other: Do not call him by his birth name, its horribly embarrassing to him. Mainly because his parents were huge nerds. As he puts it, "Some parents name their kids for their relatives. Others give them names which mean something special where they come from. My parents named me for a boss enemy in their favorite video game."
  • Timezone: I'm from California, but I don't know what Timezone that is.

Looks interesting, I'll write up a character soon. I've got one question though, in the RP world, are the Numbers just normal cards? I know you didn't specify them as being off-limits, but just about every other plot device archetype is, so I figured it was worth asking.

@Tachi: Numbers are normal cards in this universe, yes. I figured that banning them for plot reasons would be eh. Also, I've enough banned cards as it is.
@Nick: Seems OK to me. Accepted; welcome to Sea dorm. Also, California's at UTC-7/-8.
@T. Roxas: Forgot to mention: welcome to Sky dorm.
@Nitramy: Accepted. Welcome to Earth dorm.

Walking the path of heaven, ruling over all...
So, um... Thinking of giving this another go, but we'll see how that turns out. Most likely going to go with Arcana Force, but I'm weighing options right now.

...Also need to look up Israeli names, because setting is strangely important to me. Hmmm. But we shall see.

Hm... I assume we aren't allowed to have more than one character for this?

@Parable: Meta decks are basically the decks that are used for competitive play today. They're discouraged because they kinda take the fun out of the game; they win, but through broken cards rather than through skill. When you have cards like Grapha or Hornet...
While I don't outright forbid Dark World or Inzektors, Grapha and Hornet tend to take the fun out of the game, so I heavily discourage their use. As the OP notes, we're here to have fun with a large siding of Large Ham, not to win duels.
@Moe: Take your time.
@T. Roxas: Depends on the amount of players.

Appearance: Isaac has dark brown skin with unkept black hair and aqua blue eyes. He stands at 5'6" (168 cm). Never seen without a pair of sun glasses on his face or on his head.

He wants to be a pro duelist after watching tournaments on TV. Isaac is not particularly sentimental, but his favorite card, Familiar-Possessed Eria, is one he keeps with him always as it was his very first card.

@Parable: accepted; welcome to... <dramatic drum roll> Sea dorm!
Also, Isaac's clothing, with his sunglasses, is more practical than Art's long-sleeved shirt. He's going to boil sooner or later; they don't call the Negev a desert for nothing, you know, and it is very hot and dry (at day. At night it's freezing and dry).

This is the article you're looking for.
EDIT: For everyone's information, here's the sheet for Sophia Rozen, the head of Earth dorm.
  • Name: Sophia Rozen.
  • Age: 56.
  • Gender: female.
  • Duel Disk: Academy standard, brown-and-yellow colour scheme.
  • Dorm: Head of Earth dorm.
  • Appearance: Sophia is short and stocky. Her lined face and greying hair show that she isn't a young woman any more. Her face is kind, and the edges of her eyes are wrinkled — she she smiles a lot. She usually wears practical clothing. Other words, khaki-coloured pants and a short-sleeved shirt. She also wears a keffiyeh, usually (and despite the heat) as a scarf.
  • History: Sophia's history is nothing special; she was just an ordinary housewife until her son Avrum was chosen as East Academy's headmaster. When he moved there, so did she, and she helped him take care of the the Israeli bureaucracy. Since then, she served as Earth dorm's head. She is a kind woman, treating her students like the grandchildren she doesn't have, and is a very good cook (her khraime is legendary). Despite her silly outward appearance (she's prone to pinching her students' cheeks and inventing silly nicknames for them) she is an intelligent woman and a fearsome duellist.
