I wasn't sure for a while whether or not I wanted to try this, but I decided that nothing overly terrible could come from it. And what can I say? I'm a man of many likes, countless ideas, and perhaps even a number of mysteries, but we won't get into that last one.
Anyway, this RP will take place in the recurring location of New Domino City (though the Satellite and Crash Town areas are accessible), and yes, Duel Runners and Turbo Dueling will make a return. Actually, Duel Boards will have been mass produced at this point as well, just to allow under-age characters to participate in Turbo Duels. I have a plot, so this would be more than just random dueling. This storyline will bear a couple of similarities to 5D's, but only to a point. Just like in 5D's and in the original series, the primary rival will be the Domino King of Games, and like all primary rivals, with the exception of Zane (i.e.: Kaiba, Jack, and Kite), he will possess a rare Dragon-Type monster with 3000 ATK, which will have an upgrade or two, and this character's Deck will revolve around Dragon-Types.
Players will be allowed to invent their own cards. Why? Because I can think of no good reason not to. I would prefer players' decks to be mostly made-up rather than pre-made. I also would like to introduce a new mechanic into the game: Ignis Summoning.
You're probably asking: "What is Ignis Summoning? That sounds awful strange." Well, it's a new kind of Extra Deck Summoning form. Ignis Monsters are monsters summoned from the Extra Deck by sending 2 or more monsters whose total ATK is equal to that of the new monster from the field to the Graveyard. The reason for this is the dilemma of some players having the ability to swarm the field with low-level, low-power monsters, but not having the ability to Synchro or Xyz Summon with what they have. This allows players to combine the offensive power, or, if you would rather in some cases, defensive strength, of their monsters to overpower what their opponents may have. Synchro, Xyz, and Fusion Summoning will still be allowed, but I would prefer for Ignis Summoning to be dominant.
Alright, so, I was hoping to play the "Kaiba", but someone wishing to be a lower-level rival, like Crowler, Officer Tetsu Trudge, or Shark is allowed. The "Yugi" (reserved by Raddum, ATM) will actually be a character starting in a district of New Domino that is terribly run-down and forgotten by all but a handful of people, commonly referred to as Rat's Nest. Duel Gangs in this area are a common sight, and Sector Security in the area is so far and few between that they rarely are able to even dent the amount of gang activity in this area.
We will also be looking for a player to fill in a sort of "Joey" position. Not in the area of a gambler, but more of just a good, but not amazing duelist. There are also a number of smaller roles that can be filled, but I've listed what I need to be offered up front in order for this to work. This RP may be run at high-casual or low-advanced. So with all of this said, is anyone interested?
