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.
- 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).
- Monsters: (Total:)
- Spells: (Total:)
- Traps: (Total:)
- Extra Deck: (Total:)
- 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.
