    Yu-Gi-Oh! - The Unknown Hero

    Domino City was entering its third era, having passed through the original time as Domino City and through the period of New Domino City. It was revived after the death of New Domino City when the Kaiba Corp regained control over the game of Duel Monsters. The city was built around a bay and tall mountains enclosed the surrounding area. While various people had attempted to mine through the mountain to build roads to connect the city with the outside world, they had proven unsuccessful. The only way into or out of the city was by boat. This strange geographic position caused days to be cut short due to the sun falling behind the mountains early.

    On the waterfront, built at the very back of the bay were the Kaiba Towers, a set of two towers that stood a thousand feet tall each. Around the rest of the bay, on the waterfront, there were other tall buildings but none reached as tall as the Kaiba Towers. While these buildings became known as the financial district, they were not in fact a district because they were so spread out. As one moved away from the waterfront, the buildings grew shorter until it became simply residential with the occasional small shops spread throughout.

    Near Kaiba Towers was the Kaiba Dome, the central arena for Duel Monsters. It was built like a hockey arena but instead of ice, there was a dueling field. At back of each seat also contained a small touch screen that would allow the spectators to get a rundown on the effect of each card played and the screen also allowed them to follow the duel from afar better. The Kaiba Dome was the central attraction of Domino City, a must see to any traveller.

    Domino City was an odd city for many reasons. The first two have already been given: that it is inaccessible by card and that the office towers take up the waterfront. Another aspect that set Domino apart from other cities was that it had no slums. Despite a strong population of nearly 800 000 people, there was plenty of employment to be had. The economy was booming for everyone and at its heart was dueling.

    While most countries in the 21st century were interested in sports, the city state of Domino City had found their own passion to be dueling. Dueling was done throughout the world, but nowhere more than Domino City. Perhaps the name forced them to duel, but they simply couldn’t get enough of it. As such private schools had dueling classes available as electives while public schools that could not afford to spend resources on that generally had one or more clubs devoted to Duel Monsters.

    These classes and clubs were designed to set students up for a career in dueling. In Domino, there were both professional and minor league dueling. The Professional Dueling League (PDL) was the most elite of all the leagues. There were a total of 128 duelists in this league selected from the tens of thousands who wanted to join. All official matches by the PDL were held in the Kaiba Dome and were televised nightly. Of course, the PDL was not the only dueling league. There was also a much more expansive minor league of 1024. This number was strictly regulated to make tournaments much simpler.

    Duel Monster booster packs were released very sparingly because Kaiba Corp believed that players must first master the current pack before they will be ready for any more. Kaiba Corp also made all packs available at all times not only to attempt to limit the secondary market for cards, but also in an effort to aid new players in building the deck of their choice.

    Since Domino was a city-state, it would be logical to write something pertaining to the structure of the central government; it was entirely unrelated to Duel Monsters. The city was run in a parliamentary fashion with 100 members in each chamber. One chamber (the upper chamber) was elected using districts of 8000 people. The person who received the most votes won. The lower chamber was designed more for the parties who formed. In it’s elections, a party or group received seats based on the total votes they received. Thus there was never one person who controlled the city.

    Any desire for me to actually continue the series?
