It would cause too much of outrage if Bank wasn't ported to the Switch though, given the sheer level of investment people have put in.

#7133626 Rap Battle: Striker vs CowCow Part 9897

Posted by The Warden on 28 December 2018 - 09:13 AM

Expectations man, ya gotta live with 'em
Otherwise, ya wouldn't get this gem
Of a rap from yours truly
Dishin' out truth like Judge Judy

Take a seat, lemme tell ya a story
Of a man who once tasted glory
From a troubled past, he climbed his way to the top
Showin' he was the best of the crop

Then one day, after he thought he made it
His fellow people thought he wasn't fit
So he had to quit, a fall from grace
Leavin' the top with out a trace

He was hooked though, hooked to the glory
Hopin' to rewrite his story, his messed up story
Thinkin' that maybe he'd get it right this time
Maybe this time it might be fine

So he went along with the punches, turned into a joke
Without ever realizin' his dreams gone up in smoke
Now he's just a shadow, overlooked by all
A constant reminder of his untimely fall

So boy, ya think your raps sting?
How can they hurt someone who isn't a thing
But an over used punchline?
Who never had a chance to truly shine

Maybe someday I can rewrite my story
But for now, it's just history

Sighs Okay, let's do this.

Little Boy Blue quit blowin' that horn,
You're givin' headaches to the damn unborn.
I'm getting sick of all this childish tripe,
And watching you still pickin' fights.

So let's begin with a cross-examination,
Of all your foolish inclinations.
So let's begin with Subject A:
Your obsession with being passé.

So lost in the past, it's way out of style,
Every sadsack post, one more for the pile.
And all this acting out, shit it's getting old,
You think these call-out posts is you being bold?

All your pathetic hollering,
Naught but childish posturing.
Of a poor sad fool longing for the lost,
Failing to realize all cares have been tossed.

Poor dear you wanna go back,
To a time of infinite flack?
Oh yes, yesteryear was good to you,
Many days hounded by bugaboos.

Now onto Subject B:
Your pretentious false modesty.
Oh so woe as me, fuck me so sad,
People don't like me, damn I've had it so bad.

Fuckin' pathetic, that's what I see,
A king of his own shitty dynasty.
Oh hail the emperor of self-reflection,
Oh hail the god of perfect introspection.

But it's nothing but a party, of your own self-pity,
Expecting sympathy, despite being so shitty.
Can't you see that nobody cares?
And yet you go on with your selfish airs.

And now then, Subject C:
Oh wait, what's this I see?
Nothing's there, you're just some two-note joke,
A sad little cancer among us forum folk.

So just give up, give in, lie down and shut up,
It's pathetic hearing the bark of a whining pup.
But food for thought brat, here's one thing I know,
Just hang up the shit, and have a potato.

#7133290 [DANE] Cloudian Aerosol

Posted by The Warden on 24 December 2018 - 08:12 PM

why the fuck does this have any restrictions at all for fuck sake it's a cloudian card

you may as well let their one decent card be used as much as you can manage it

It’s my belief Konami does it on purpose so they can be absolutely certain the card cannot and will never compete with the money cards they want to shove down their consumer’s throats. Just look at Gimmick Puppet Chimera Doll. It didn’t need a million restrictions either but that didn’t stop Konami from slapping them on.

Posted by The Warden on 11 December 2018 - 02:22 AM


  1. Natural grasp of English with a vast dialect allowing me to rotate and spice up my writing.
  2. Fast writing allowing me to produce large pieces of work over a short period of time.
  3. Good grasp of world-building such that I produce a vibrant world over time.
  4. Good characterization to ensure characters I design act and grow as intended.
  5. Jack-of-all-trades mentality that allows me to tackle anything and work with those themes.
  6. Vast imagination allowing me to dream up over time creative pieces of work.
  7. Adept at using elements already present in canon franchises for use in fanworks.


  1. Motivation to write is non-existent 95% of the day.
  2. Shaky beginnings when working with new stuff.
  3. At times dialogue is too similar between characters.

#7130369 Gimmick Puppet - Chimera Doll

Posted by The Warden on 01 December 2018 - 09:03 AM

Okay, resident Gimmick Puppet player here. And the problem is this won't help GPs too much, because Argent Chaos Force is banned. Argent is, effectively the whole reason they could get away with shit because it allowed for stuff like Ultimatrainer. With Argent banned they cannot reliably make powerful Xyz because Dreary is still their primary playmaker and it is xenophobic as hell. Argent helped because even though you were stuck making N15, you could Argent into a stronger Rank 9.


Onto the card itself, it can easily be brought out using Humpty Dumpty into any other GP, preferably a Dreary Doll to get it nice and cosy in the GY. Alternatively, Black Salvo to pull from the GY, or Tin Golfish in lieu of Humpty if you swing that way. However, once it's out, in traditional Gimmick Puppet xenophobia, you're pretty much locked into using only the GP Xyz, compliments of the first effect locking you into only summoning machine Xyz from the ED for the rest of the turn. You can use that trap that changes machine monster levels to be 5 to 9 to make use of other machine Xyz, but it's not worth using in GP.


Now, the search is good, considering that it also helps with GPs most prevalent and glaring issue: Hand advantage. GP hemorrhage cards like someone with a missing limb hemorrhages blood, so this card is handy in at least trying to give you another card to use. However, the xenophobia requirement for the SS is so entirely unnecessary considering how super xenophobic GPs already are, in spite of the fact that this card existing pretty much sets the SS up.


That said, this card simply doesn't do enough to justify how xenophobic it is. And even though you can use its effect once per turn, it absolutely will not last long enough to pay back what you put into it, and frankly I feel it could have had an effect that lets you SS a GP Xyz from the GY upon this card being sent to the GY. At least it might, and this is a very tentative might, make people think twice about Ash Blossoming it.


But again, it's not like it matters since Argent Chaos Force is banned, and it was GP's bread and butter in terms of being able to do ANYTHING worthwhile. Granted, if I can give this card one thing, it's that it can pretty much set up an Inferno Reckless Summon by being able to search and then SS any GP from your deck. But given the machine xenophobia, it still ain't worth it since you can't make Giantrainer or any good stuff Rank 8s by summoning out 3 Magnet Doll or Shadow Feeler.



I suppose you could use this in a Rank 4/Level 7 synchro hybrid deck thanks to being able to use Tin Golfish, Black Salvo, and Humpty Dumpty to get the materials needed out. But with Salvo in the deck you might as well ignore this card's xenophobic ass and make Needlefiber instead.



Funny thing though, I was just thinking earlier how unlikely it was that Konami would make a GP Link, yet here we are. And I very much wish they hadn't bothered.

#7127585 [DP21] The New Lunalight Support

Posted by The Warden on 08 November 2018 - 07:53 AM

@The Highlander Unfortunately Perfume cannot be searched, as, for a reason I cannot fathom, it is Luna Light Perfume, so it's not a Lunalight card. And unfortunately it does not have a "This card is always treated as a Lunalight card" clause, so it is still very much unsearchable.

#7125280 Report Stats

Posted by The Warden on 24 October 2018 - 08:15 PM

Winter there is absolutely zero point in slut shaming folks for doing the right thing. Because doing so would deter people from the act if they know we’d have to tell people who reported what. I mean I understand why you specifically would be so dogged about this, considering how often you get reported.

But here’s something: Instead of asking who’s reporting you, stop doing reportable things.

#7117836 The Grand Crossover RP - Pathway to Origin [IC/Apps Closed for Finale]

Posted by The Warden on 08 September 2018 - 07:52 AM



They thought to expel her, did they? Fools. You foolish fools foolishly fooling about. You can't destroy what is you, not unless you intend to destroy yourself. And you will when Leukemia comes into play. And what better Leukemia was there than one where a Ragnarok destroyed their Crona? "Fools."


The kernal that made up the Heartless, Isamy's Heart, was safely ensconced within the corners of her Black Blood, to keep it safe from the swings of the blade. it was quite precious, too precious, but foolish. It wouldn't work. She had to win here, so naturally it wasn't going to work. Not when she could see into the harmony of the two. Fools. "Heartless Alpha!"


Each eye screamed, but it was a slow and soft scream, almost impossible to hear without being an animal of some kind. But as they did, a calm ran through Butlerok's own Mad Blood in a wave, forcing it to be still and calm, and above all else, obedient. He was just a man, a simple man playing games far beyond his ken. it was sad. Tragic. A real sob story true. But that's how their endings were unfortunately, sad ones. It could have been avoided, but... they made their beds now that his wavelength was indistinguishable from her own. "Heartless Beta!"


The screams became sonic, impossible for the average man to hear. But not impossible for a soul to hear the call. "Come to me souls consumed by greed and lust. I can set you free if you join with me. Come! Come be free and earn the endings you desire! You will find nothing in the dark, so please, come to my light, and finally find your Happily Ever After!"


Her words were like honey, alluring, enticing, mesmerizing. You'd be a fool not to follow her, to want to join with her, and live in the eternal joy of Happily Ever After.  And with it, Butlerok's Mad Blood was silent, silent save for the Heartless' calling.

#7117295 Yu-Gi-Oh! Rulings Questions

Posted by The Warden on 02 September 2018 - 08:55 PM



If your LP is to low to pay for a LP maintenance cost, then the cost cannot be paid and the card will be destroyed. Same with most other maintenance costs. Oftentimes these effects will include a "Pay X LP or destroy this card" or "Pay X LP, and if you cannot, destroy this card" clause to denote what is mandatory payment and what is optional. However, neither can make you pay more than what you can give.

An exception is when the cost includes a “ Pay/Loss X LP (this is not optional)” effect, which I believe pertains only to the Chess Archfiends. Those with the not optional clause can make you pay until you lose.

If you cannot pay the LP cost to activate a card, then the card cannot be activated. Same with a discard effect when your hand would be empty.

The Shadow Cavern




It wasn't a cry of distress, but something of a command. "Do not toy with them, toying is pointless. End them quickly, so they may become one with Origin. They refuse us. They refuse ME! They refuse all that we stand for. Do not toy, just end them and make it quick. Their suffering should not be long."


Bone cracking, Isamy's light shone directly onto Butlerok and Rhadamanthys. The Heartless observed, and then unleashed a piercing cry of rage and anguish.


[Void Inclusion: Veigar, the Tiny Master of Evil]


Eye-light glowing more intensely, Isamy's Heartless let out another roar as the air of the Shadow Caverns filled with large black balls, hundreds of them, potentially thousands. With another roar, they all scattered, aiming to pound every last inch of the Caverns to draw those fools out, with many aimed specifically at Butlerok and Rhadamanthys, but also indiscriminately at Killua and Gon as well. And you better hope you don't take damage~ Isamy's now stacking Phenomenal Evil stacks to amp up her power.

The Shadow Cavern
Entropy. That one word defined this creature. Her near-empty heart, although thoroughly shattered five years, had now let in an ancient, ALMIGHTY DARKNESS. With open arms she embraced this pain, this hatred, this pure evil for herself, and thus it flooded into every fiber of this foolish heart. Driving her desperate desires down into a new level of depravity. This mysterious source of power had resided within her heart ever since she first obtained her Omni powers, but she never quite understood what it was. However, nor did she care. In this state, her nature had been amplified more than ever.
It didn’t matter if she had to become a monster, a Heartless… Now she had the power to destroy. And though it seemed pointless, she knew she had more than the power to destroy, as now she had more than enough power to make them see her way. Those beautiful, delicious hearts. They will offer them to her, or be destroyed instead. That was her ultimatum. There is no other way now. The head of Isamy's Heartless twitched erratically, gruesome cracking noises coming from her neck as she clung to the ceiling of the Shadow Cavern, her new home, her new kingdom. An even nastier CRACK! resonated as her head completely did a 180, now looking at the barely lit ground below. And with one good eye, a beam of yellow light issued forth, scanning the doom and gloom for her first victim. "Defying me is pointless" the Heartless spoke to the cavern's occupants. "Please see this. Fighting me will avail to nothing. Just give in, and you shall have a merciful end. It is better than resisting and being annihilated."
The light continued sweeping, searching for the first heart it would take, or destroy.
