Some Story Lore on Decca: The Battle of Cards

Hi, I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for their support on this story that is still very much a work in progress. If you are interested, this will be some lore to the story, no spoilers of course. I'm just one writer working on this story and if you are interested in learning more about it or you enjoy it and want to express what you like and even what you don't like, do not hesitate to leave me a comment. Please be patient due to story just being a hobby of mine and time for me is limited. Enjoy!

Decca Story Origins and Thoughts:

Decca: The Battle of Cards story started off as a simple concept, I wanted to build a story centered around powerful cards and I'm a big fan of trading card games of course, so it was a no brainer what the core of the story would be about.  As a big fan of Shōnenanime, like Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Yu Yu Hakusho etc., I wanted to fuse my passion for trading card games and anime by creating a story that centers around interesting characters that battle each other with trading cards. Yeah, I know the concept hasbeen done before. However, my idea took a bit of inspiration from anime like Naruto just to name an example, where the characters learn techniques using their hands to summon elemental and other type of abilities. For my story the cards would be key for the fights. Characters would be involved in fast-paced action but of course using different cards in order to summon the different techniques and elemental abilities. There could be something out there, a comic book, another novel, a video game even that probably has a similar concept or basic elements to my idea. Well, I haven't come across it just yet. Any similarities is just coincidental. The debut of this story, the first rough draft, was posted originally on Storywars.com. This site no longer exists unfortunately, but turns out that my story really didn't take off on that platform. (If you do a little of investigating on Storywars.com you'll understand.) I decided to take it and expand on it and eventually I was able to create 8 chapters (Still a work in progress.) However, I decided to give up on it for a time due to lack of response from an audience. I kept fixing and adding to the story little by little. I officially added all 8 rough draft chapters to websites like DeviantArt, Booksie and Wattpad to name a few. I got a lot of hits on Booksie.com but Wattpad.com and DeviantArt.com was not very successful.  (I even created many different types of cards for the story and posted them on my   DeviantArt profile https://www.deviantart.com/eamproductions).  But I kept at it and eventually found this awesome site. I decided that if the story does take off I would dedicate more of my time to it. On this site I decided to take my time, take it slow and not rush and add all the rough draft chapters but instead see if there is enough interest. If I see the interest, I will dedicate more of my time to develop and edit each upcoming chapter. Thanks for reading and your support. - X Caliber - Take care!

First Seed

University was Erin’s chance to begin a normal life free from an emotionally erratic mother who treated her daughter’s chronic illness like a personal project. The mysterious disorder Erin had been born with not only threatened her life, but altered her appearance with traits that didn’t come from either of her parents. Icy white-blue eyes and exceptional height attracted more than second-glances in her rural California hometown. For eighteen years she was treated like a fragile doll who was the unspoken cause of everything broken in her family. Now in a dorm room shared only by a spider, Erin was able to redefine herself.

Symptoms of her illness flared just when she was finally feeling in control. On her dorm room floor she convulsed as a burning itch erupted from the nape of her neck, going down her spine and through her veins. As consciousness faded she was unable to recognize the imposing figure leaning over her. When Erin’s senses returned, she found herself further from home than ever before. In the house of a tall stranger, she discovered that her greatest wish had come true: her illness was cured. Although contrary to how she’s always imagined, the moment was far from the answer to all her problems. The stranger revealed that Erin’s birth and illness had world changing implications. Erin soon realized she was anything but in control of the chaos to come.
