About the D-Storage (1) Its Role in the Game

In Digimon Liberator, players can enjoy various activities utilizing virtual reality, but the core content is undoubtedly the Digimon Card Game battles.
Let's now take a closer look at a key item that links together the trading card game-focused aspects and the VR aspects of the Digimon Liberator game: "D-Storage."

1. What is a D-Storage?

D-Storage is a multifunctional deck case essential for playing Digimon Liberator.
By registering an account on the official Digimon Liberator website and linking it to your D-Storage, players can access the game from T.A.L.E.

Conversely, without a D-Storage, one cannot play Digimon Liberator.
In essence, this item acts as both a participation certificate for Digimon Liberator and a passport to start adventuring in the virtual world of Lacuna.

2. D-Storage's function in the real world

Naturally, the uses of a D-Storage differ between the real world and in-game, so let's start by learning about its real-world applications.
In the real world a D-Storage, as the name suggests, is an item designed as a card/deck case.
It can accommodate a deck of up to 55 cards (including Digi-Egg cards).

Cards stored in a D-Storage are automatically scanned by sensors inside the case. When accessed in Digimon Liberator, these cards are saved as in-game items in the library.
However, only up to 4 copies of each card type can be scanned (with some exceptions), and there is a limit of 1 scan per 24 hours. Therefore, it's advisable to start by scanning your main deck and then scan spare and versatile cards to expand your in-game card options.

D-Storages can be purchased at toy stores, card shops, and amusement facilities nationwide, and on the official Digimon Liberator online store.
In light of its high price, it includes features such as a smart tag function and device-locking options that use personal authentication to prevent misplacement and theft, ensuring that players' valuable decks are well protected.

Due to the game's popularity, the product often sells out, but rest assured, it is regularly restocked.

A variety of colors and designs are available, and collaboration models with popular Digimon Liberator players are also being considered for future release.

Essential for those starting in Digimon Liberator, D-Storages also stand out as an attractive accessory for card game enthusiasts.

3. D-Storage's function in Digimon Liberator 

Now that we have discussed the real-world usage of D-Storages, let's delve into its role within Digimon Liberator.

First, upon using a D-Storage to access Digimon Liberator, a "Tamer card" linked to the player's account is created.
Referencing registered details like birthdate and blood type, three potential skills are generated, from which the player selects one as their initial skill.

This Tamer card develops and changes based on the number of battles fought and items used within the game, essentially becoming the player's avatar.
Players can integrate their Tamer card into their decks for battles within Digimon Liberator, allowing them to experience fighting alongside their Digimon.

In the virtual world of Lacuna, D-Storages replace smartphones by including various other functions as well.
It facilitates communication with other players, can be used for private chats with friends, can receive notifications from the admins, and announcements of in-game events.

Additional features include checking battle records, registering and summoning partner Digimon, and accessing a variety of data through the Library.

The Library is likely the first and most frequently used feature by players.
It allows players to edit their decks before battle and review cards.
Proper deck setup and registration are crucial, as loading the cards is one of many tasks required for participating in battles.

Furthermore, the Library in Digimon Liberator stores various in-game items besides cards.
The storage capacity for items in the Library is limited to 100 items (excluding cards), necessitating careful management to avoid clutter.

Let's delve deeper into these various in-game items.

■ Instant Portals

This consumable item allows for instant travel to any hub within the same area. It's distributed as a login bonus and can also be purchased from the in-game shop.
Only one is consumed per travel, making it highly convenient. However, it cannot be used to move to different areas. Thus, it's typically used for quick escapes in emergency situations or for returning to a safe location before logging out.

■ Accessories

In Lacuna, players can customize their avatars and partner Digimon with accessories, which can be earned as rewards from in-game events or by completing missions.
These accessories come in a variety of designs, ranging from cute to cool, including some that are themed after specific Digimon. Consequently, many players find themselves spending more time styling their characters than battling.

■ Ability Items

By using ability items, players can obtain Tamer cards that are enriched with various abilities. These items are also available through in-game events and as rewards from battles.
The more powerful the ability a card confers, the higher its rarity, and naturally, higher rarity items are more difficult to obtain. However, there is a chance of acquiring these items with a low probability in NPC events.
Collecting many ability items and expanding your collection of Tamer cards will broaden your options in deck construction.

■ Alt-Art Chips

In Digimon Liberator, players can use items to change the art of scanned cards into the "Alt-Art" version or another special rare version.
While Alt-Art Chips are regularly obtainable items, the amount you need to use may increase depending on the rarity of the card and the rarity of the desired art, so frequent use might not be practical.
It is recommended to use these items on your favorite cards or those featuring the Digimon chosen as your partner, allowing for a personalized touch to cards.

■ LC (Lacuna Coin)

In Lacuna, players utilize an in-game currency called Lacuna Coin, or LC for short. LC can be spent on buying card packs, accessories, and other items.
Players can earn LC as battle rewards or by selling cards and items they've acquired within the game.
Additionally, certain NPC events allow players to earn LC through in-game jobs, which could be a viable option for those finding themselves short on currency.

So, how did you find the introduction to these items? It's important to note that these are just a fraction of the elements that make Digimon Liberator entertaining.

There's more to the game than this, including various events and scenarios, interactions with other players, and endless adventures awaiting your exploration.

However, every journey begins with a single step.
The crucial first step begins by understanding and mastering the functions of D-Storage, the most essential item in the game.
