[top]Clarifications

[*]Yu-Gi-Oh Monsters Clarifications:
Within the Yu-Gi-Oh!: Series One set, character dice are called "monster(s)" which are not the same as the Dungeons and Dragons sets.
Dungeon and Dragons "Monster" is an affiliation with this banner .
  • Lord of D.: Dragon Protector prevents all actions and abilities that target. Cards that require a player to make a set number of choices, or cards that specifically use the word target do not work on Lord of D. Basic Actions Imprisoned and Force Beam are two examples that work on Lord of D. According to Wizkids, "Lord of D. is in fact strong and prevents all abilities. He didn't become the Lord of D. for being mediocre."[1]
  • Lord of D.'s burst ability () only applies to characters with "dragon" in their name, i.e., the title of the card, but not those with "dragon" only in their card subtitle.[2]
  • If Ring of Magnetism: Action Attraction is played on Lord of D.: Dragon Protector ("While this monster is active, it cannot be the target of opposing action dice or abilities."), the opponent would not be able to target other monsters/characters with action dice or abilities, and they could not target Lord of D. See Lord of D. Ring.
    • Effect A: Your opponent can't target this monster.
    • Effect B: Your opponent can only target this monster.
    • The "can't" and "can" are not at odds with one another. Someone staring down a Lord of D. equipped with Ring of Magnetism would check for the ability to target a character (with basic action Swords of Revealing Light, for example). Effect A would stop you from choosing Lord of D. Effect B would stop you from choosing one of the player's other monsters/characters. The end result is no legal targets.[3]
