Default Soul Drain vs Dark Worlds

Okay. So. All the threads I've read on this really haven't directly answered my question. So, I'll just ask straight forward. Does it stop Dark Worlds? Normally, I'd find this to be a completely stupid question. The only thing that is throwing me off about the card, is the '(that start a Chain).' at the end of the card description. I almost feel ashamed for not quite understanding it. But, meh. Might as well ask, instead of just.. Not really knowing. o-o

It prevents them from activating when they are discarded, yes.

It stops effects that activate in the Graveyard, meaning, that start a chain. Most of the effects of Dark World Monsters fall into that category. Special Summoning Grapha does not.

it would prevent dark world monster effect that would activate on the grave from activating.
to know what stuff activate you need to look a bit on that PSCT thing

The Dark World monsters' effects related to discarding them all start a chain, so Soul Drain will stop them from activating.

For a monster card, any time you see a colon (":") or a semicolon (";") in an effect you know it will start a chain.

Going to have to look more into the 'Start a chain' thing. Thank you both very much.

Now THAT Answers it completely. Normally rulings aren't a problem with me. That one last sentence on the card just threw me off a bit. Thank you!

Like most basic rules, this is all explained in the rulebook (page 39 through 41).

PS...CT Thing?

Additional Comment:

Wouldn't think to refer to the book. This is really probably the.. First ruling problem I've had in months. And, a bit of a stupid one on my part. xD I suppose I was just over thinking it a bit. I'm sure I have a recent rule book laying around though, somewhere. Or I could just look up the book.

PSCT = Problem Solving Card Text

There are articles Konami has published it (as well as a sticky in this forum) about it.
