Card text abbreviations

From Gensopedia

Card text abbreviations (カードのテキスト内の略号, Kādo no tekisuto nai no ryakugou) are a terminology used in Genso Suikoden Card Stories to refer to card conditionals.

Active abbreviations

APPEAR「出」

This designates that the ability listed on the card will activate when it is played from your hand, deck or discard pile onto a Mission or Facilities card that is not yet cleared.

BETRAY「裏」

A card with this conditional can ignore the Unique Rule. If you play a character with this conditional, while a character of the same name is already in play by your opponent, you discard the character of the same name that was in play previously and play your card.

Correspond 「対」

With his conditional, you can use this card's ability when it is in your hand or on the field. The owner of this card is able to select whether or not to use the ability.

RIDE ON 「協・R」

An upgraded version of the Unite conditional. It is used for mount characters, such as Feather. This abbreviation was added in Card Stories Chapter II, which was based off of Suikoden III, which introduced mountable characters.

Rune 「紋」

During a battle on a Mission or Facilities card instead of a play turn, you can select to use this conditional ability. The owner of this card is able to select whether or not to use the conditional ability. After using go to the Clear Determination Step. In addition, this ability can only be used once per turn per character. This conditional was added in Card Stories Chapter II.

Stationed [駐]

After completing a Mission or Facilities card, this card's effect is triggered if you choose this card to be stationed on the cleared Mission or Facilities card.

SUPPORT 「S」

You can play a character with this abbreviation alongside a new Mission, other than a Duel mission. The ability of a card played in this manner does not activate until the mission battle begins. This conditional was added in Card Stories Chapter II.

UNITE 「協」

When you have dispatched a character to a Mission or Facilities, you can dispatch a card that shares this conditional with it to the same mission. However, you must obey the play rules during this time. The owner of the card may choose whether to take advantage of this conditional or not. In addition, taking advantage of this conditional ends your play turn.

Defunct abbreviations

Appearance Select 「出」「選」

This is an optional ability that can be activated when the card is played from your hand, deck or discard pile onto a Mission or Facilities card that is not yet cleared. This abbreviation was removed from Card Stories Chapter II, with most cards becoming Appearance cards with the optional ability stated in the text instead.

Continue 「継」

This designates that the card's ability will continuously apply while the card remains in play. No card ever used this conditional, so it was removed for Card Stories Chapter II.

Resolve 「解」

This is an ability that activated once a Mission or Facilities card has been cleared. No card ever used this conditional, so it was removed for Card Stories Chapter II.

Select 「選」

This is an optional ability. The player has the choice whether to activate it or not. This abbreviation was removed from Card Stories Chapter II, with the optional ability stated in the text instead.
