First off there will be a few types of duels in the series.
Standard: uses the basic anime rules 4000 life, the player that goes first doesn't draw, you start with 5 hand cards and if you run out life points or cards in your deck you lose.
Turbo duel: All the same rules apply except with a few added and can depend on tournament rules such as completing 10 laps first gives you an automatic win (to counter people just waiting the laps out you have 2 minutes to complete a turn), if you fall off you D-Wheel/ Duel runner you lose and regular spells are replaced with speed spell versions of cards that you can only use by paying an amount of speed counters. (This rule is rarely used now however)
Trial duel: This is an ancient type of duel that only be issued by a holder. Each player offers something that the other players gets at the end (for example a card or in the worst case Situation your soul) these duels have 8000 life, a starting hand of 4 cards and no starting draw no matter if you go first or second, you only have 5 extra deck spots 3 monster and 3 spell and trap zones (the pendulum scales are unchanged) and not only have dueling but also have you complete a task of some kind (examples a maze or a quiz. It has the same losing requirements of a standard duel with the added of failing something three times you automatically lose. There can also be trial turbo duels.

Kaiba: If you are un aware the cities are under threat of a hacker.
(brings the photo of a duelist in a magician outfit and mask with a dark magician beside him)
Kaiba: This duelist stole my company's experimental Pendulum cards that were to be disturbed to all at the end of the month.
Kaiba: I am offering a reward to whoever can beat this duelist and bring him to me, the reward will be whatever you desire, believe me as president of Kaiba corporation i can get you anything......SO DUELISTS GO AND FIND THIS CRIMINAL!
Alana: *Gets up and heads to her room after ceasing her Fangirling.*
Arina: *Looks concerned toward her older sister* "Onee-Chan what's wrong?"
Alana: "I have a bad feeling about what Kaiba said. Something is telling me to help."
Arina: *Hugs her sister tight* "If you have to go, you have to go. Just promise me you'll do one thing."
Alana: "What's that?"
Arina: "Come back to me in one piece. I want to learn to duel better from you. Please come back to me."
Alana: *hugs her sister back an just as tightly.* "I will Imouto-Chan. My mission is clear, I have to find and defeat this criminal Kaiba-San is talking about. When I get back, I will teach you to duel a lot better than you do now. You are an excellent duelist, but you have a lot to learn and so do I. Don't worry, I will be back. I love you Imouto-Chan"
Arina: *Smiles as she hugs her sister even tighter.* "I love you too Onee-Chan!"
The two sisters separated, but before Alana went up to her room she turned to her sister and smiled.
Alana: "I need you to take care of our little sister. You can teach her to duel now if you want to. She's been begging me to teach her for quite sometime. Could you do that for me?"
Arina: *Poses and gives her sister the thumbs up.* "You can count on me Onee-Chan!"
Alana: *Giggles, winks, poses, and nods* "I know I can! I'll see you when I get back!" *Heads up to her room after giving her older little sister another hug.*
Alana: *Turns on the TV after putting her Angel Pendant on and sits on her bed seeing if there is anymore information Kaiba has for her.* "It seems I may get a chance to Duel as Angelic Finally. I was surprised to discover that it had actually been in my family, but had vanished until the time was right for me to find it. I have to take care of my Pendant and defend it with my life. It's time for Angelic to shine!" *Clips her Duel Disc on her left arm and clips her Dueling deck to the belt on her Skirt.
Alana turns off the TV and heads out. She hopes she doesn't have to duel anyone as Angelic. As Angelic, her dueling skills triple. She has to be really serious when she's dueling as Angelic, as Alana she can just be herself. She's more into Dueling for fun. However, she knows that one day, the time will come where she will have to duel with all her skills so she will have to be Angelic in that case, right now, a stroll through the park and dueling for fun sounds awesome.
Alana: *Humming the original Yu-Gi-Oh theme for some reason.* "Time for a fun stroll." *She really hopes that if anyone challenges her to a duel, she won't have to bring out her Ace card, the Dark Paladin.*
As Alana is strolling through the park, she partakes in a few friendly duels. She does manage to win without having to use her Ace Card, she also loses some, but she was fortunate enough to run into some duelists that just wanted to duel for fun. She not only takes part in some duels but watches some duels as well. She can't help but worry though, what if she has to become Angelic to Duel someone. She has to keep that part of herself a secret.
Alana continues to stroll through the park with a smile on her face. What a wonderful day for a stroll.
Ryan: *starts walking away, as the people retreat* *as he walks past she’d notice Ryan’s duel disk had 2 extra spell/trap zones, one on each of the ends of the monster card zones, one with a red gem and the other with a green*
