In the future, the Quest Corporation runs the world. With their patent on holo media, politics, entertainment and celebrities are streamed worldwide for their power.The chief form of entertainment is Card Duels. Players battle with monsters, robots, and mutants in epic PVP combat.You are Ace, a 15-year-old youth who has just wandered into the local holoshop and has decided to become a Card Duelist. Issue is.. You have no idea what you're doing.The shopkeep droid offers 4 starter decks, each based on a different strategy.Do you choose>SunAn aggressive deck built to win the game as soon as possible that fails when it runs out of gas.>EarthA grindy deck that builds up advantage overtime that may succumb to enemy pressure the most of them all.>MoonA slow-paced deck that eliminates every enemy threat before winning in the late game, tends to get run over by fast decks>StarA deck built on assembling combos and building up to explosive plays. Is weak to decks beating it while its setting up

On its cover you see a massive angelic alien Dragon."Star, interesting choice, most newbies go for the Sun deck.""Maybe the kid has half a brain."You turn around and see a 17 year old with log and grvaity defying black hair. He looks you down with the eyes of a pubstomper."New to the game, huh, wanna have a friendly challenge?""I don't think that's the best idea, Zed."What do?>Ask the shopkeep why its not a good idea>Accept the challenge>Refuse the challenge
>>4804203>Ask the shopkeep why its not a good idea
>>4804203>Ask the shopkeep why its not a good ideaI think I already know why, mf sure have a competitive deck or some shit like that and plays with new players to bust his ego. We should learn to play and have some matches with other newbies before we beat the shit out of Zed the next time he challenge us
>>4804393yeah leave rushing into getting stomped to sun decks, we need to learn who he is and how to play
>>4804203"Why shouldnt i?"The Shopkeepet turns to you. Well franky, do you even know how to play?"Come on shopkeep let the kid live a little." "But fine, I'll sweeten the deal, you beat me, and I'll send you 500 Gem Points"Gambling is strictly forbidden in these premiseses Zed""Then we'll take it outside, tincan.""What do you say?">Accept the challenge>Decline>Write in
>>4804458Call him a loser for trying to act tuff to someone who hasn't even learn how to play yet and if he's a real man to ask again in a month and we'll see who wins
>>4804469Yes. Agreed. Let's learn to play FIRST.
>>4804469also maybe say that likable people don't need to bribe people to play with them. ya know if we feel like being mean
>>4804458"Maybe if you were less of a jerk, you wouldn't need to act out your anime asshole fetish just to get people to play with you." Youhere an "oooh" from the background as Zed seethes."Hmmph, good job toning down the pipsqueak"A tall man with green hair and glasses walks up behind you."I'm Mr. Aleph, the Judge for this sector, and Zed here has just had his last infraction>""Aw come on man I was just playing."Zed is cut off by his smartphone beeping red. A hologram shoots from it.1 MONTH SUSPENSIONZed walks off in a huff "I wont forget this!"You look as Zed exists the door but blush as Mr Aleph comes up behind you.I wouldn't worry about Zed, man has major Chuuni syndrome.So welcome to the shop, I see you got a CD Starter deck. What got you interested?>I want to have fun.>I want to make friends.>I want to go pro.
>>4804490>>I want to go pro.
>>4804490>I want to have fun and make some friends.Is there really anything greater in life than just playing some games with your friends? Hell you can even do it competitively as long as you’re having fun.
>>4804490The threeWhile playing sure we will find it fun and also find people that are interested in the game, so we can have some friends, but our goal is to go pro.
>>4804522changing to this aim high and have fun doing it
>>4804490"I want to go pro"Ah , you got sucked into the streamer life eh, well let me break it down.Mr Aleph brings up a holoscreen of the Card Duels main channel."There are two main options for going pro, but they overlap. You can enter pro tournaments and compete for prize money, or you can become a "Cardiatior" someone who makes or plays showy decks and games for entertainment. Mr Aleph swap the hologram images to those of a ladder"If you want to go pro in tournaments you need to qualify by getting your rank up. Thats what Zed was trying to do by picking on a newbie like you. It wouldn't get his points up much,but he wouldn't need to work much for the win so he could string enough together to get up the ladder."Both options are pretty grueling though. You either need to be very good at the game or very skilled at getting a fanbase."But if you do want to get your start there, we do have a Jr Cardiators program as well as a beginner's Duel Ladder. Of course you probably want to practice the game first.>Tell me more about the Ladder>Tell me more about the Jr Cardiators program.>I want to practice
>>4806041I knew that some of a bitch was up to something! That slimy fuck. Well, whateve.>I want to practiceIt's time for the practice montage baby, hell yeah.
>>4806041>I want to practicewe're a young duelist called ace who just made an enemies with someone called zed. I won't know how I feel about this until we take on the rest of the alphabet
>>4806041>I want to practiceI actually want to go down the Cardiator path. I think it would be a lot more fun and new to try and become a flashy streamer because the other option has been done to death in media. But first things first we have to learn the game and practice.
>>4806041You want to practice eh? Well here let me set you up. Follow me.You walk to a center area of the shop and Mr Aleph pressed a console. A Small hologram Marshmellow thing pops up."This is Beta, they are used for testing out new decks , but they are also good for training newbies.Aleph guids you on how to start a Card Duel and the game begins. Three large hologram cards show up in front of you and BetaThese are your shields, each attack will take out one of them. If you get attacked with no shields you lose.Above your head a glowing 1 appears.This is your level, it controls how powerful cards you can play.Three holografic cards appear before yourEvery turn you will generate a hand of three cards from your deck that match your level.

>>4807105>Soul of the NorthAlso, after we practice we should see the deck's cards, we just start playing without knowing exactly what we have, but I guess it can be nice if we just play this blind and see what we can do
>>4807105>Soul of the North
>>4807105You play soul of the North. Suddenly a bright green blizzard covers you and drifts up. The level icon above your head goes from 1 to 2."Good job" Said Mr Aleph. That was a spell. Spells dont have power but have one shot effects. They go away when used. You have no moves to make so your turn ends.At the start of Beta's turn a glowing 1 appears."Each player levels up once at the start of their turn. Effects like Soul of the North can level you further.""Let's play funtime!" Says Beta.They play Carnage Raptor, a scammer dinosaur figure.Level:1Power:2"Carnage Raptor is a monster.

Mr Aleph says"But watch out, things are heating up."Beta's level goes to 2 and they change. The doocy smile becomes an enraged grin, their head lights up in flame and they begin to hell."IT IS TIME PATHETIC BONED ONE, TO FACE THE WRATH OF BETA!"A flaming card emerges above Beta's head"I CAST, SPLIT THE PAIN!"Split the PainLevel 2Target monster you control gains double hit.

>>4833069Yolu purchase 5 eyes, add it to your collection then go to sleep.You awaken feeling electricity through your body as you prep to head back to the shop. As you walk you see a private message from Zed.>You think you're such hot s h i t because you got be suspended? You think just being in one hot vid makes you cool, I've been training in this game for years, its only because Questco dumbed it down for newbies fake geeks like you that you even knew how to hold the cards let alone beat a real player like the Euphorian ! If you're so good why don't you play be 1v1 with that little starter deck?!Attached to the pm was a direct challenge offer.You ignore it from now and walk into the shop to see it bustling with people"How did you'd do it? Is Euphorian as hot that close up as he is on screen?! You get overwhelmed a bit until Mr Aleph steps in"Everyone, I ask that you respect Malbolger's personal space or I will have to take judge action.They sigh and disperse before talking to you.'Sorry about that, it seems your match yesterday went a bit viral."He pulls up a Cardiator video titled "UNRANKED JANK-STAR STARTER DECK OP?!" That showcased Euphorian playing in unranked. The capstone of the vid is your defeat of him."I gotta say, that's a pretty exciting first day playing. ""All those people are here for me?"'Well no, its mostly because its prerelease."'Prerelease/"When a new set comes out, Questco runs special Limited Tournaments to help sell the new set?"What's a limited tournament.""Limited is a way of playing the game where you don't need to use your own cards, but instead play with cards from paks you open, it promotes on the flyd decision making and synergy building, and its good for prerelease since people don't know all the new cards yet."Since you're a new player you should have gotten a free prerelease ticket.You look to check your phone and see a red ticket next to your 0gp. You missed seeing it given the pm from Zed and the crowd."Limited is pretty fun, I hope you check it out!">PM Zed>Pm to Euphorian>Ask Mr Aleph how to stream>Join Prerelease tourney>Write in

>>4836368You walk up to Mr Aleph"I would like to join the prerelease, how do I do so?""Well ist pretty simple, you click the option in the game menu and pay with your game ticket."With Aleph in front of you you do so. You join a log that has three glowing circles."You will get three games for the period of the prerelease, the more wins you get the greater your prize."In Limited, instead of a deck you will draw booster backs randomly generated from the set. Every time you draw you will either get a common (I roll 1-3) a rare (I roll 4 or 5) or a legendary (I roll a 6) pack.Instead of picking a sign, you will automatically draw cards that match the signs of what you have already picked.Finally, you don't get to keep the cards you pulled.Excited but nervous you click the start game button and are sucked into a holo arena.Across the field from you you are shocked to see none other than ZED!"Ha, thought you could dodge me didn't you rookie.""How are you here you got banned?""Like I only had one account? You think you're hot [explicitive censored by gamechat] because you beat some loser Cardiator in unranked?

>>4838351>>4838524Ok so just a note on this pause. I literally was writing the next installment for "end turn" just as 4FHah/2Z sent in their vote for "attack". So its deadlocked as a tie and I don't want to disrespect anyone but skipping their vote.That said we have been frozen for 3 going on 4 days. So I am going to politely request a third person vote or for one of you two to change your vote to the other.I have an "End turn" and an "attack" submission already pre written so once I get a tiebreak we can move on quickly.Thanks.

I was thinking, and I know this will be a lot more work for you and maybe not your intention, but I feel like this quest could really benefit if you made pics of the cards/battlefield
>>4858776You know I would be up for that,would it be too offputting if they used mtg templates?
>>4858779I wouldn't mind that. It's also not too intensive to make your own. Then again, I put ~200hrs. into a draft version of a TCG with ~240 completed hand-drawn and scanned cards in 12 unique decks, that I was too shy and tech-illiterate to follow through with. Big autism times. Maybe one day... (pic related)My official advice is to immediately and thoroughly rape and kill anyone who recommends you use Inkscape.

Kaado Quest is still here? Why didn't anyone tell me?! FUCK YOU FAGGOT BITCHES!!!>>4858776First of all, this is a capital idea. QM, please tell me it's in your ability to make this happen. Please. I will suck your dick.>>4858779MTG ot Yugioh would likely be the most comfortable/recognizable choices. I vote MTG, personally.>>4858799You are badass and your idea is badass. If you don't get back to some card goodness I will kill you.
>>4862934I really hope I nut up one day and finish and release the card game. It takes so much self-motivation for me to do it. No one I show IRL seems to care. It's a cold bitch of a world, it sometimes seems. Just gotta find a way to overcome and persevere.
>>4863058I will offer motivation for you...If you don't do it, anon, you're a bitch and will always be a bitch. Fuck the cucks around you. Stand out. Do stand-out shit. Don't be Basic Billy.
>>4863576I always feel embarrassment and shame even though I pretend to not give a fuck about other people's opinions. And I have a problem motivating myself. You're right though, if I don't start standing up and standing out, I'm just relegating myself to a life of mediocrity and unfulfilled potential. No one else is doing that to me, it's a choice I've been making on my own, almost daily. Aw fuck, I was kind of rallied while thinking about this but now I'm just a little depressed. Gotta stop living in the past, and... OH would you look at the time, looks like my therapy session is over.
>>4863625You can do it, anon.
>>4863629Yes, I can. Thank you.
