For those who have not read the first one, please follow the link to read the whole story.http://s11.zetaboards.com/Dark_Duellist_Saga/topic/90584/1/ Chapter 63 “A new alley!” “Ladies and gentleman. Welcome to the second semi-final match of the USA-Cup here in Hisehade City. We have seen some pretty exciting matches sofar but this is really everything. The last two duels of this tournament have promised to become big duels!” The PA was full of excitement and so was the audience. “May I introduce in the Red Corner, Dustin Connoly, three times champ Duel-Monsters at Hisehade High,” a lot of people screamed while seeing the boy in the red corner, “And in the blue corner we have Vinnie Longwell, won the USA-Cup once and all-time champ of Markon High!” The audiences even got wilder. “I expect a clean and good game from both of you. Good luck to both of you.” The referee sat at the side while both duellists shook hands. “Hi, it is a pleasure to meet you.” Liam didn’t even answer. “Well, you could at least give us an answer.” “I will crush you.” “That is something for starters.” They both activated their dueldisc`s. “DUEL!” Dustin – 4000Vinnie – 4000 Dustin and Vinnie walked up to the judge, handing over their decks. The judge shuffled them and then handed the decks to their original owners. “Participants, you may draw your opening hand!” Vinnie and Dustin each had drawn their opening hand. The lights flashed and it was made apparent that Vinnie was allowed to go first. ---------------------------------- In the stands Dragen, a black-haired boy with blue jeans and a sleevless white T-Shirt appeared with a drink and some chips. A boy in a red jacket and brown jeans appeared behind him, carrying some more drinks and eating the last bits of the hamburger he bought. It was Dyllan, a very good friend of Dragen. Dragen looked around and saw a familiar face. It was a boy he knew from the university, Xander. Xander was always talking about the galaxy and things and space. Dragen never duelled him, Xander always declined his challenges, but he knew Xander`s deck involved space-creatures. Xander was also known by friends as the “Marauder of the Galaxy” a nickname they gave after the first day they met. “Dragen! Dragen, over here. You can sit here, I have two places left.” Dragen nodded and signalled Dyllan to follow him to Xander. Xander smiled and shook hands with Dyllan, which he never saw before. “Hi, I suppose you are a friend of Dragen? My name`s Xander. I am going to the same university as Dragen.” Dyllan nodded. “Dyllan is my name.” They sat down. “You know anything about the duellists facing of, Xan?” Xander shook his head. “Nah, that kid is supposed to have a legendary deck, but sofar he had only shown a deck of thrown together cards and he was even able to win with them. However he told the press he would use his real deck in the semi-finals and eventual final.” Dragen and Dyllan nodded and they turned their attention back to the duel. “Well, he better use his real deck, I mean, we all know who he has to face in an eventual final.” ----------------------------------- “Draw!” Vinnie looked at his opening hand and smiled. “Not bad. I summon Obnoxious Celtic Guardian (1400/1200) in attackmode.” The green-brown elfish warrior appeared, carrying a sword. “I equip the spellcard Blaze-Blade to it, raising it`s attackpoints by 300 (1700/1200) and I set one card, ending my turn.” Dustin smiled. “Draw!” His smile became even wider when he saw the drawn card. “I first play Pot of Greed, drawing two more cards.” He draws two more cards from his deck. “I summon AniGuardian – Wise Tiger (1500/1000) in attackmode.” A whitefurred tiger with some golden plates around his body and a jewel on top of his head appeared on the field. “Now by cutting his attackpoints in half, I can attack directly!” The tiger stroke Vinnie and his lifepoints dropped to 3250. Vinnie – 3250 “Whoah, I heard of the AniGuardians but I never thought someone like you would have a set of them.” Dustin smiles as he grabs another card from his deck. “I equip Wise Tiger with my spellcard Jewel-Glance. It has no effect yet, but it will change.” He set another card. “I end my turn.” -----------------------------------AniGuardian – Wise Tiger4/1500/1000/light/beastEffect: Half the attackpoints to attack directly. This card cannot be destroyed by magiccards. When this card is destroyed, draw one card and remove this card from play. ------------------------------------ Vinnie draws a new card. “I play Alligator Sword (1500/1200) in attackmode and equip my spellcard Alligator-Blade to it, raising it`s attack by 300 to 1800. Now Alligator Sword attack that Tiger!” The sword of the green alligator swordsman stroke the wise Tiger and it was destroyed, lowering Dustin`s lifepoints to 3700.Dustin – 3700 However when the smoke cleared, Wise Tiger was back on the field. “Thanks to my Jewel-Glance I can instead of removing my Tiger from play, summon it back to the field and draw one card.” Vinnie grunted. “Great. Doesn’t matter as I can still attack you with my Obnoxious Celtic Guardian.” Wise Tiger was again destroyed and returned to the field, allowing Dustin to draw one card while his lifepoints dropped to 3600.Dustin – 3600 “I end my turn with playing a card facedown and ending my turn.” Dustin nodded and draws a card. He smiled. “Because my Jewel-Glance got two Attack-Counters because of your attack, I can send it to the graveyard and summon any “AniGuardian”-monster from my hand to the field. I call out my AniGuardian – Raging Bull (1600/1500).” A black bull appeared with four horns instead of two, a silver jewel on top of his head. ----------------------------------AniGuardian - Raging Bull4/1600/1500/earth/beast-effectEffect: This card is unaffected by any magic – or trapcards. When this card is destroyed, you can choose any “AniGuardian” from your deck and add it to your hand.---------------------------------- “Raging Bull, attack with Silver Horns!” Dustin shouted and the bull hit the Alligator Sword, lowering Vinnie`s lifepoints to 3150.Vinnie – 3150 “This is not all for the moment. I tribute my AniGuardian – Raging Bull to summon AniGuardian – Mighty Bear (2000/0).” A goldenhaired bear with black armor around it`s belly, legs and forelegs appeared, having a green crystal on his head. “I end my turn.” ----------------------------------AniGuardian – Mighty Bear6/2000/0/light/beastEffect: This card is unaffected by any magic – or trapcards. This card can be directly summoned if you have no other monsters on the field. The monster is switched to defencemode after every attack. Increase this monsters defencepoints by 1000 for every monster removed from play. Increase this monsters attackpoints by 500 for every “AniGuardian” send to the graveyard. When this card is destroyed, you can remove it from play in order to draw a card. When it is send to the graveyard you can flip a coin and this card can act like a magic or a trapcard:Heads: trapcard – force your opponent to discard two cards from his hand, if not able, let him pay 1000 lifepoints.Tails: magiccard – resummon “AniGuardian – Mighty Bear”----------------------------------- Vinnie nodded and draws a card. “I tribute my Celtic Guardian to summon Blademaster Gold (2200/1700) in attackmode. It`s special ability allows me to destroy one monster on your side of the field.” The blade of the golden warrior hit Mighty Bear and it was destroyed. “This activates Mighty Bear`s special ability. I flip a coin.” Dustin flipped a coin and tails was the result. “This allows me to resummon him.” The bear reappeared on the field. “Okey, you have some freaky powerfull cards there.” Vinnie said. “Yeah, but it does not end. It gain 500 attackpoints for every AniGuardian send to the graveyard. That is two so 1000 more attackpoints.” Mighty Bear roared louder as his muscles were pumped up (3000/0). “Now my Mighty Bear attack his Blademaster Gold!” Dustin ordered as the bear stretched his claws and slashed the golden warrior in two pieces. Vinnie`s lifepoints dropped to 2350.Vinnie – 2350 “I am not done yet, Ani-boy. I activate my facedown, Dust-Barrier. This allows me to negate any effect damage for three turns.” A large wave of sand flew up in front of him. “Oh, I am not done with my turn either. I set one card and activate the spellcard Soul Tablet, allowing me to resummon AniGuardian – Raging Bull with an additional 400 ATK and DEF.” The bull reappeared on his side of the field (2000/1900). “Now I end my turn with attacking you directly!” Dustin ordered. The bull hit Vinnie badly. Vinnie – 350 -------------------------------Soul TabletSpellcardThis card can only be activated during one of your Standby Phases. You can Special Summon one level-4 or lower “AniGuardian” to the field with an additional 400 ATK and DEF. If you do this after your Battle Phase, you can attack again. However, at the beginning of your opponent`s turn, you must destroy the monster summoned with this card.------------------------------- “Draw!” Vinnie said. Raging Bull exploded. “This is because of my Soul Tablet. But this activates my Bull`s special effect, allowing me to pick one AniGuardian and add it to my hand.” Dustin added one card to his hand. Vinnie held up a card. “I play the spellcard Sword of the Fallen,” he inserted a card in his dueldisc, “and summon one level-4 or lower monster from my hand.” A green monster appeared with slime dropping from his mouth. “Meet my Slime-Soldier (1400/1000). He sucks away 500 lifepoints every turn and he can cut his attack in halve to attack directly. So that is a blow of 1200 lifepoints.” Dustin – 2400 “Now I play Monster Reborn, summoning back Celtic Guardian (1400/1200).” The green-brown elfish warrior reappeared on the field. “And last but not least I activate Ambush Force, a spellcard that allows me a combined attack of Celtic Guardian and Slime Soldier cut in halve, a blast of 1400 lifepoints coming your way.”Dustin – 1000 “Wow, that is one mayor drop in lifepoints. Are you finished?” Dustin asked. “Well, you can’t still put effect-damage to me, so now I will end my turn.” Vinnie lowered his dueldisc. “Draw!” Dustin said and he drew a new card. “You know I can blast apart your monsters, do you?” he asked. Vinnie nodded. “I play Lion`s Gift. If I did not yet play the majestic king, I can summon one monster from my graveyard as long as it is a level-4 or lower monster. I summon AniGuardian – Wise Tiger (1500/1000). Now for it`s effect, I cut it ATK in half and attack you directly!” The tiger slashed at Vinnie and his lifepoints dropped to 0. “I win!” Dustin said and the crowd slowly started to rise, but then realised that something was not right. “You think I am done? I activate Last Soul Line. By removing one monster from play I can summon one monster to the field in order to finish the job. By removing Blademaster Gold, I summon Panther Warrior, but by the effect of Blademaster Gold, when it is removed from play, I can summon Blademaster Silver (2200/1000) to the field. Now here is the catch, as long as there is one monster on my field I cannot lose this duel!” Vinnie said. “Well, that is a pity then. It is all over. Because Last Soul Line also ends your current or upcoming turn which means I can immediately move to my turn. Draw!” Dustin said. “I play AniGuardian Spirit Sea as a fieldspell. Then I summon AniGuardian – Vicious Shark (2000/1000) to the field. Next I gain 3 Dolphin-Token`s (500/0) because of all monsters in my graveyard or on my field. Now for the threat. Dolphin-Token`s can destroy any of your monsters as long as I tribute half my lifepoints. So I tribute half my lifepoints three times (125) and destroy all of your monsters and then go in for a finishing blow. Vicious Shark attack with Shark-Wave!” Dustin ordered as his shark-monster appeared from the depths of the sea and stroke Vinnie.” Dustin – 125Vinnie – 0 ---------------------------AniGuardian Spirit SeaFieldspellcardYou can summon as many Dolphin-Token`s (1/500/0/WATER/fish-effect/this token can destroy one monster, when you tribute half of your lifepoints) as you have monsters on your field or in your graveyard as long as you can. These tokens cannot be used for Tribute-Summoning. All WATER-Attribute “AniGuardian”-monsters get their level lowered by 2. AniGuardian – Vicious Shark6/2000/1000/WATER/fish-effectEffect: Currently unknown--------------------------- “You won fair and square. Congratulations, Dustin. You fought a great match.” Vinnie extended his hand and Dustin shook it. “You too, Vinnie. Let`s duel again sometime.” Vinnie nodded. “You got it, Dustin. Good luck in the final.” Dustin nodded. He knew who he had to duel in the final and it would not be easy to defeat that duellist. “Ladies and gentleman, we have our winner. He will proceed to the final match which will start in an hour. Get something to eat, make sure you went to pea, because this can become heated.” The PA withdrew himself from the podium. Dragen and Dyllan left Xander. “We will be back. We just gotta say hi to an old friend.” Xander nodded. ---------------------------- In one of the changing rooms, Dragen and Dyllan entered. They saw the back of a black-haired boy, wearing a sleevless marineblue T-Shirt and army pants. “We saw him. He was incredible. He might be a real adversary for you.” Dragen said. The boy nodded, but did not turn around yet. “He really knows his stuff,” Dyllan said, “He knows how to counter most strategies. I don’t think you faced a duellist like this in the last 2 years.” The boy nodded. At that moment from a sideroom a girl appeared. She had long brown hair, she wore a mini-skirt and a green top. “Oh hi, Arabel. I didn’t know you were here.” Dyllan said. The girl nodded and turned to the boy. “They are waiting, let`s go say hello.” The boy nodded and stood up, attaching a marineblue dueldisc to his arm. The dueldisc was costumized, it`s center had the shape of a dragonhead, the rest was normal. “Let`s go and check out this new duellist then, shall we?” the boy said and turned around. It was Kamon McFlinn, ready for battle. To be continued…… Chapter 64: “Brawl of giants! Dustin vs Kamon! (1)” PreviewThe duel between Kamon and Dustin starts. Dustin sends out his trustfull AniGuardians, like “Vicious Shark” but also new ones like “Noble Hercules” and “Brave Unicorn”. Kamon is not really taken back and fights back with his usual tactics, but when Dustin plays “Spirit`s Pride Rock”, what secret and powerfull AniGuardian does his deck hold? RANDOM DARK DUELLIST TRIVIA Well, here it is, the first of many chapters of The Dark Duellist Saga II. I have to say it is a nice kick-of, don’t you think? Arabel was an unannounced character, which came into my mind just this week. She plays the role of Sara from the last saga, although very differently. She is no more then the new Personal Assistant of Kamon and is much seen together with Kamon (like Sara was in the first saga, but she had a very personal history and personal relationship with Kamon). She does hold a secret. Well, here is chapter 63, hope you liked it and if you have suggestions please pm me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
