A Yu-Gi-Oh! Universe-focused game.
Note: This is a technically AU RP for Yugioh GX, though it stayed close to canon until the end of the show's run. As a result, the main setting and timeline is set to immediately after GX's run ended. As well, we would like to note that we implore that you apply first and get your application approved before joining the community with your character's journal. This community, itself, will be usually used plot notices, introduction posts with your characters, and modly announcements.
Newbies can check the differences from canon here.
Information about the Duel College, the associated school to Duel Academy, can be found here.
This is a very free-for-all, rather strange, RPG, so if you have any questions, then just drop linka13, pdutogepi, or maximumawesome (AIM account: JinnNaoma1 ) a line. This RP follows the canon characterizations of the GX characters, however, it is considered to be AU, due to the departure from the conventional canon storyline.
NOTICE: Until further notice, please send all complaints and questions to email@example.com
Extra Note to Lurkers: Do not take anything that Jime does seriously.
Card Approval Note: For custom cards and anime/manga cards, please speak to Neo Arkadia neo_arkadia, V_Jeff viewtiful_jeff, Linka linka13, or Jinn maximumawesome for approval for use, before using them in-game. You must have at least two approvals before you can begin using those cards.
This RP is originally based on the original Japanese GX. As such, there will be no mention of Slifer, Jaden, or anything else. However, let it be noted that in this game, the school year ends in the last week of September, and starts in the first week of October.
Also, it is highly HIGHLY recommended that you have AIM, MSN Messenger, and/or IRC before joining.
As an important rule to keep in mind:
Update Requirement for Important Characters: One month.
In the case that three weeks pass without an update from an important character who has visible weight in the game, the player shall be warned, if available. If another week passes without update, the character will be removed from the character list, and the player will be required to re-apply the character, if interest in them is still present.
The character will not be removed in the case of informing of mods of inability to update, but will be expected to be able to return within a promised amount of time, and will be removed in the case of extended uninforming of the mods.
>> ORIGINAL CHARACTERS & OTHER FANDOMS
OCs are generally allowed, however, and should all be apped in the normal application thread. However, if you're rejected, and still wish to play, one of the mods would be more than happy to help with your characterization.
We have opened ourselves up to use of multi-fandom characters in use in the Duel Academy: R2 RP. However, there are certain requirements needed to use such characters. We are generally looking for how well the character might fit into the game, their purpose for being in here, as well as any changes needed to make them adapt to them. Given how Duel Academy is, multiple changes may be necessary in order for the mods to approve of them. Also, given the possible lack of knowledge the mods and members may have of other series, it is required to include the name of the series you'll be basing, adapting, or outright taking your character from.
As a special note, we have Female Osiris Red and Ra Yellow dorms. This is so to not alienate newer members who might wish to use female characters, but do not have the ability to duel as well as Obelisk Blue tends to portray, or have characters that dislike the automatic promotion. We ask that you do keep this in mind when you decide to app a new female character, and where their place might be in the school, depending on their abilities, and your own.
