Dark States Emblem

Dark States (ダークステイツ Dāku Suteitsu) is a nation on Planet Cray, formerly known as Dark Zone.

Background

Due to being ruled over by demonkin the nation always appears gloomy, but to them it is quite comfortable.

The Land of Darkness that inherits the will of the Great Hero
A magical nation shrouded in everlasting darkness and ruled by demonkin. The former Dark Zone was once fractured into small kingdoms ruled by demon kings, until it was reunited by the efforts of a single hero. With the “laws” brought about by Gear Chronicle and the cooperative relationship with Dragon Empire, Dark States entered a period of prosperity.

Sports
The demonkin, full of pleasure and decadence, love a variety of entertainment. Among them, the sport "Gallows Bowl", which is full of violence and excitement, still gets the people heated up even after 3000 years.

Playstyle

Dark States is focused around using the Soul for multiple purposes, such as using effects that activate when the player reaches a certain amount of soul, or soulblasting a large amount of soul to use strong abilities. The nation uses a large amount of soulcharge effects to build their soul, and has means of recovering important cards that were sent to the soul.

The Diabolos series additionally make use of the Final Rush keyword, which allows them to use stronger abilities if the player has a the ability active at the start of their turn.
