    I was thinking something along the lines of "Tower of Babel" when I made the card. But the idea with the fifth effect is more so to not set it off. I mean, this card favors a more old school playstyle if anything. Love how cards like Mask of Darkness were mentioned as they are cards that can benefit this. But still only 1 Summon/attack per turn and failure to win with 4 direct attacks is a gamble on both players. Edit: Also, I'll save it for later and work on it when I get a chance.
  2. (1) While this card remains face-up on the field: Both players can only Summon 1 monster per turn. (2) The turn player can only declare 1 attack. (3) If there is no monster in the same column as the attacking monster, that monster can attack directly. (4) If a monster declares a direct attack: Place 1 Stress Counter on this card. (5) If 5 Stress Counters are placed on this card: Destroy it and reduce the turn Player's LP to 0.
  3. I find it interesting that YCM clearly displays me as an advanced member yet the rank shows me as a newbie. 😁

  4. I've been here for 12 years and I'm a newbie?

  5. What's an equip spell that prevents a monster from being destroyed by battle?

      Yes Moon Mirror Shield is generic. Its effect is that whenever the equipped monster battles, you always win the battle by 100 ATK no matter what.
      Other options are "Mist Body" "equipped monster cannot be destroyed by battle". or "Heart of Clear Water" (which prevents the monster from being destroyed by battle or destroyed by targeting effects). They are all generic. Clear Water self-destroys if the equipped monster has more than 1300 ATK but otherwise that is generic too.

  6. Couldn't they just errata Graceful Charity to require you to have a minimum of 2 cards in your hand to activate it's effect? Or require you to have less than 5 cards in your hand to activate Pot of Greed?

      That much is true. It also occurred to me that Graceful Charity is a breakeven and still banned. Pot of Greed is obviously a +1 so not really sure how to fix that.

      iirc one of charity's issues is that in ygo discarding is sometimes a good thing

      You mean like if I added Graceful Charity to a Blue-Eyes deck and discarded 2 WSoL from my hand?

  7. Can Charizard control how hot its flames are? Just wondering since sometimes it melts boulders and ice and instantly evaporates water and other times it barely bothers Ash.

      Charizard would never use his flame on somebody weaker than itself so that implies that Ash is in the same league as it. 😂😂😂

      It was established in the anime all Fire-types control the temperature of their flames, shown as Ash learned to ride a Rapidash.

      I knew Ponyta/Rapidash could but then again the flame in question on them is their mane. Also, Moltres is also able to control the temperature of its flame since it shows when it encircles Ash in its flames and doesn't burn him.

  8. Taekwondo rules confuse me. How is it a foul to punch my opponent in the face when I get rewarded for delivering a gazillion tornado kicks to the side of their head?

      I never practice any martial art but to my knowledge unless the art or certain moves specified to kill , asian martial art in general is never meant to harm even the enemies and more about spiritual control, honor, with a bonus ability to decent self-defences. and Taekwondo, is quite adamant about uphelding this trope. the side and the back of your head is quite protected with the spine and the thicker portion of the skull which much more stronger than structure that compose your face. It also meant to prevent damage to "vitals" like eyes. 

      Well if any of the site's resident taekwondo or any asian martial art practitioner can correct my ironic and horrible explaination, you very much welcome

      Also, in Muay Thai, the push kick is a technique that is considered disrespectful as it is a sign of disrespect to touch someone with the bottom of your foot in Thailand.

      I thought that was how you used to be able to do it, but it wasn't working, let me test this real quick:

      Wow this worked?

      Or in case it didn't work: Wow, this didn't work!

      I guess you'll never know...

      My feelings are hidden

  10. You could always ask to be a beta tester
  11. Is it bad to drink 2 cans of Monster in less than 10 minutes?

      Drinking any amount over any span of time is ill advised. The concoction literally renders one's blood sticky.

      Does it? Is it because it contains raw glucose?

  12. Again, I do have to agree with you there. So I think a story could work without conflict and just naturally progress. But it'd have to be a more slice-of-life-ish deal where we just see the world through a character's eyes while they simply appreciate the little things. Then again, it matters on the type of conflict, if any, you are seeking. I personally think conflict should have a purpose in the story. Examples of conflict with purpose range greatly as the conflict is either a driving force for the plot or aides in character development/evolution. Examples of pointless conflict also exist. Take a series like Tom and Jerry or Pop Eye for example. They offer hours of entertainment but you know the next episode is just a rinse and repeat of what you just watched. It has no plot and is just there to kill time.
  13. A clockwork universe still has some level of conflict. The conflict is set by nature/time and your protagonist(s) would still have to adapt to their circumstances, much like the cases pointed out in The Martian, Interstellar or various natural disaster based stories, where nature/time is essentially the driving force of the story. Also, stories that have little to no conflict are your typical "slice of life" stories, where your protagonist just goes about their day without a care in the world. So I still hold the position that conflict without purpose isn't necessary to a story.
  14. You are right. But those remain active parts of their respective stories rather than being centralized conflicts. In other words, they are more like a driving force (much like the main gear inside a clock) that the characters are required to adapt to as the story progresses. But overall, the stories in which I've mentioned actually have no protag/antag relation. The more important part of the story isn't so much the conflict but how said characters adapt to said conflict. If a conflict does nothing in terms of story progression or character development/evolution, I likely deem it as filler and thus unnecessary.
