Hello and welcome to A.B.C. - Anime Battles Club! Here, you can help me (and more if others join) to create cards that we would love to see in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime. But not only will we create cards - I will also make an Anime battle using those cards in a Deck against any character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime (I do not know much Manga characters, but if you want me too I can look up some). Of course I will write it down, and not do an animation or something... But anyways, if you are interested, I will state the rules and other important features down bellow:
I - Regular Yu-Gi-Oh! rules apply.
II - No DIVINE/Divine Beast or Creator God cards, also Fake Types and Summoning Mechanics are forbidden - Unless if you want the duel to take place after ARC-V, then we can say that a new Type or Summoning Mechanic has been added over the years. (Fake Attributes, however, are still banned)
III - No inappropriate references or images; No swearing (On cards; Anything in the regular chat is allowed, even though it wouldn't be preferred ).
IV - You can only put a max of 10 cards per dueling deck: Once a duel has been finished, you are free to add your next 10 cards.
V - It would be preferred that you do NOT use cards that are supposed to work with an Archetype, unless if it would work well with any other card. ( If you all want to do an Archetype and are willing to work together, than I will allow an Archetype deck)
VI - If anyone else wants to make their own Anime battles, than I will allow them to IF they follow these quick to learn rules:
1: Must be a realistic battle.
2: No one wants to read something like an English exam; Something exciting would be good.
3: Must be longer than 7 turns.
4: Must ask me first.
VII - No spamming.
VIII - I will only work with a 40 card deck; Any other card that is left over will (probably, if designed properly) go to the next duel.
IX - If you post a card and it is rejected, you are allowed to post another card in its place. (This still cooperates with the 10 card maximum)
X - You must keep all of the cards you want to post on a single post; Any card that is separated from the others will be ignored.
XI - You must also, above your cards, place which duel this card is supposed to be in or is currently being prepared for; Any post that does not have this will be ignored.
As I have stated above, I will also list other important features you will need to know:
I - As with YCM, you are allowed to post a total of 11 cards if you include a Ritual and its Ritual Spell, or a pair of Pendulums that are designed to work together. However you can only post 1 pair of Pendulums or the Ritual monsters and Spell per duel.
II - I think this is obvious, but it is not like we are gonna see Yugi playing with Pendulums anytime soon; When we are in the process of a duel, the monsters must be up to date with the current state of Duel Monsters at this point.
III - Regarding Geminis, I have found out on Yugipedia that Geminis have not been properly introduced in the Anime. So, if you are posting a Gemini, keep in mind that we will respect that state, and if we do in fact include a Gemini, it will probably die off soon.
IV - Toons will not be included in a deck that does not support Toons, unless if it works well anyways.
V - If one of your cards was rejected, don't worry. Don't be discouraged, because I will only reject OP or joke cards (Fake types and Summoning Mechanics if placed before ARC-V)
VI - If anyone wants to be part of my staff, than you can PM me for that. Anyone in the staff will receive 1 of these positions:
1: WRITER - Able to write the duels if asks. (Must be VIP [YCM VIP, not this VIP], Elite Member, or YCM Staff)
2: VIP - 15 card maximum (Must be an Elite member or YCM staff for this).
3: REVIEWER - Able to accept and reject cards. (Must be YCM Staff)
4: HEAD - This position is only available to me, unless if something changes. Basically all other 3 positions in 1.
VII - There is no maximum of Extra Deck monsters we can include. If there are still spaces left open for the Extra Deck, I will simply move on.
Spell Counter King - HEAD
If you have any more questions, you can tell me! I will not post any cards yet, for I have yet to know what kind of duel we are looking for...
