This is Megaman Battle Network Quest. It takes place during the beginning of Megaman Battle Network and you play as a 11 year old boy, named Vector Mugen who moves into ACDC Town with his family.http://pastebin.com/ApW0Gjs0Choices will be available after each update; you will have 10 minutes to vote and after the 10 minutes have passed I will call the vote. Combat is explained in the pastebin, as well as the other quest mechanics. But I will explain it within the quest if need be.This is my first time running a quest, so I hope I’m able to provide an enjoyable experience and if not I apologize ahead of time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZocM0ZCnH5Qhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2m6c_ojaKlg
>>43522874It is the year 200X and with the raped advancement of Internet technology has created the “Network Age.” Everyone now carries a portable exploration device called "PET". This personal terminal is an advanced personal digital assistant. Using it, you can make phone calls, send and receive emails, keep a calendar, store data, shop online and check news from around the world. PET is so convenient and helpful that it has become essential for everyday life!Every PET uses a personality simulation program called Net Navi(gator). By customizing your PET's Navi program, you can give your Net Navi a unique personality - and even talk to it. Yours was built and customized by your father and given to you at your 6th birthday, his name is Changedman.exe. Despite him constantly nagging at you to wake up, do your homework, making sure you are not getting in trouble, etc. The two of you get along quite well to the point you consider each other brothers, though who the elder brother is still up for debate.At the moment your family is moving from your home country, Creamland, to the country of Electopia for your father’s new job at a place called SciLab located within Densan City or Den City for short. It doesn’t take long, well for you since you fell asleep on the ride over from the airport, for your family to arrive at the new house within the new town you will be living in for time being.Pick one>Explore ACDC Town a bit>Head inside your new home

Bumpman, jack in, Execute !
“Hey mom and dad, is it fine if I explore the town a bit?” You ask your parents as you get out of the car“Sure son, just be sure to not be out to long since the sun is about to set and I don’t want you to get lost. This is town is different from our old one.” Your father replies“Changeman, please make sure Vector doesn’t get into any trouble, I wouldn’t want his first impression towards any of our new neighbors and the residents of this town to be a bad one.” Your mother adds worryingly“What since when do I get trouble!?” you protest“Since forever, I’m pretty sure a kid that was 7 years old shouldn’t have been breaking into Creamlands castle from time to time” Changeman says with a smirk“Whatever, come on lets go explore and get to know the town a bit”“Be sure to be back by dinner, dear” Your mother shouts as you run off“Will do!” shouting backhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMue_MacI9sYou start exploring the town. You spot the entrance to the Metroline, the subway that your dad was supposed to use to get to his job at SciLab, but from the looks of it is still not open yet. Guess your dad is going to have to take the bus for a while.You begin to walk around the neighborhood, most of the houses look the same except for the giant mansion that you passed by. Guess this town has its own celebrities living in it. Across the road from the mansion is an empty building with a sign “For Sale”.You keep walking for a while until you come across a closed gate with a sign above it saying “ACDC Elementary School”“Cool, looks like we located the new school you’ll be attending tomorrow” Changeman says“Yeah, hope everyone’s nice at this school. Well that’s enough exploring; let’s go take a break at the park nearby before heading home”"Sounds good, but for a little bit. Otherwise we'll worry mom" Changeman adds
>>43523665The park is quiet and calm you think to yourself as you sit at a bench nearby. After a while you decide to get up, and that’s when you notice someone nearby staring at the squirrel statue across from you.>Talk to the girl>Head home, it is already late
>>43523690How late are we talking here ?
>>43523735Late as in kids should be at home by now since its dinner time, but at the same the choice chosen here will cause an early event.
>>43523690>>Talk to the girlMight as well.
>>43522909>with the raped advancement of Internet technology>raped
>>43523770I say we talk to her, but quickly, just introduce ourselves and then start on home, maybe invite her to walk with us.
>>43523827Yeah, took me awhile to notice it after I posted.
Calling vote and writing.
I hope Changeman is as good at jokes as Megaman.
>>43523914Well he has a few when he isn't acting like a "big brother"
After this update could we get a general summary of Changeman's abilities or will those be revealed later?
>>43524057ThisAlso what's his gimmick, so we can make shitty puns?
>>43524057Isn't it just that he can change elements sort of like Megaman?
>>43524057Yes to both, since in a way Changeman is similar to Megaman since they both aren't ordinary net navis, but unlike megaman you can restore Changeman with a backup if he gets deleted, but it'll take a awhile since he wasn't suppose to be a net navi at first.
>>43522874Someone recommend a good system for running MMBN
>>43524107>he wasn't suppose to be a net navi at first.Sounds hype
>>43524186MMBN is best run as a nested system inside a pre-existing system. Create a way to interface PC stats with a "sub" PC's stats to represent shit like reaction times, latency of battle chip transmission, and specs of the actual PET, as well as the Navi's stats.Once you get that done, it gets significantly easier.
>>43523949I vote we have Vile for a navi instead of changeman.
>>43524352Nah, he can be the rogue program running around picking fights. What nobody knows is that he has a home to return to: Decommissioned Beam Cannon Enigma
>>43524352Actually that's what Changeman looks similar to,except without the maverick attitude and such.
>>43522874>http://pastebin.com/ApW0Gjs0dear god, you did a relatively decent job of directly porting BN into mechanics.....I guess we'll see if you need to abstract a bit more or not.
>>43523690You decide to walk towards the girl and it seems she doesn’t notice you standing behind her. You wonder what powers this squirrel statue has to be able to keep people so interested in it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUs1JfXYvtk“Excuse me” You finally speak outThe girl jumps a bit, startled more than likely. She turns around and you get a better view of her. She is wearing a simple dress, has green eyes, long neat hair with two hair accessories that look like butterfly’s. And is giving you a look of “who are you”You apologize to the girl for startling her and introduce yourself “Sorry about startling you, my name is Vector and this guy here is my PET Changeman” “Hello” he says“My family just moved here, so we’re new here. Do you live in this town?”The girl doesn’t say anything, she just shakes her head. Guess that’s a no“So where are you from..uh?”“..Iris..” She finally says “So Iris how come you were staring at that statue you for so long?” you ask her“It’s sick.. The squirrel its sick…” she says in a sad tone“What do you mean the squirrel is sick?” Changeman asksShe looks at your PET, “There’s a virus inside the squirrel… its causing harm to the Mr.Programs that regulate the water. And it means it would make any of the animals that drink from it sick” “Iris leave it to us” you respond “Well make sure to delete those viruses for you, ready Changeman?”“Yeah!”“Jack in Changeman.exe!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71lV5MknViY“Hey Changeman, how is it in there?” “She’s right, there’s a bunch of Mettaur viruses causing a mess of the place and some of the Mr. Programs seemed to be cornered by a group of them.” He responds >Attack the group that's heading for the Mr. Programs>Attack the ones attacking that are attacking the Squirrel Server >Aim for both, DC roll
>>43524526>>>Aim for both, DC rollCause we are that good.
>>43524449So our Navi looks kinda like Vile, except he's not a prick? Cool.>>43524526>Attack the group that's heading for the Mr. Programs
>>43524482It will be updated constantly as the quest progresses since of Navi Customizer, Crosssoul, Crossfusion, etc..
>>43524526>Aim for both, DC roll>>43524596Also please tell me or change is just changing what comes out of our cannon instead of full on megaman expy.
>>43524596He's saying to keep in mind how much you might handwave, since this might be a bit too much bookkeeping or detail-minding for a quest.
>>43524526>Attack the group that's heading for the Mr. Programs
>>43524628More like a mix, since stuff from the anime, and the manga is going to be used as well here. I'll explain everything at the end of the thread,
Rolled 1 (1d2)Calling vote, looks like I'm going to roll a dice1. Aim for both2.Attack the group that's heading for the Mr.Programs

Rolled 22, 30, 4, 20, 24 = 100 (5d30)>>43524757>>43524777Alright, nice
>>43524795Sword, Xpanel, Escape, Recovery 10, CannonSo do you want to use a chip or just use your buster?
>>43524842Cannon can one-shot a mettaur right? Use cannon, sword if there is range and Xpanel then stay behind the destroyed panel since they can't attack over it.
>>43524883Sound good, but I'd use the X-panel ahead of the Mr Programs so they can't get accidentally hit, unless that's not actually a problem.
>>43524842Cannon and X panel
>>43524842Xpanel cracks the floor?Canon, support >>43524916then maybe sword if they get close.
>>43524883Well combat is different here, it goes the same way as in the anime. Your not stuck in a certain panel, you have the entire server to move in.Plus you can reuse the chips, unless you decide to use another chip.Like if you used cannon you can spam it to defeat all the mettaur.Probably explain the combat a bit more if you want me to.
>>43524990So if we're using freeform combat, then we can use the Cannon as much as we want until we swap it out, and Xpanel would just cause an earthquare and destabilize the general area.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNFmzH5YDDc“Cannon chip, slot in!”Changeman’s right hand changes into a cannon and he begins firing at the Mettaur group of viruses that were cornering the Mr. Programs. “Hah!” he hits two of the five Mettaur’s that were in the group and two more before they can react to the surprise assault. The last one final notices, but is too slow to react and along with his friends is deleted. But the noise that Changeman was making seems to have alerted the rest of the Mettaurs and they begin to zerg rush Changeman who easily dodges their attacks.He fires a few more rounds of the cannon hitting a few more before one of the Mettaurs who circled behind him attacks“Sword chip, slot in!”Your PET ejects the blank chip that carried the Cannon dataThe sword materializes and Changeman blocks the pickaxe strike in time. He pushes back with the sword and knocks down the Mettaur, delivering a quick strike that causes the Mettaur to break into cubed data.“One more down, 6 to go” Changeman says in a cheery toneHe charges forward cutting down two more easily before all four Mettaurs that remain surround him.They must have gotten smart, but it’s too late for team work to help them as you send another chip that spells they’re down fall.“X Panel, slot in!”Before they can even hit Changeman, he teleports out in time and appears behind two of them striking them behind, before finishing off the last two with his buster.“Virus busting a success” He says “Nice job, Changeman, let’s go check on the Mr. Programs to see if they are all right”“Alright” You turn to Iris and tell her the good news“So Mr. Squirrel is all right now, no more viruses to bother him” you tell herShe smiles for the first time that you meet her. She’s kinda cute when she’s happy you think to yourself.
>>43525564“How are the Mr. Programs and is Changeman okay?” She asks“I’m fine” Changeman says “And the Mr. Programs are okay, they just had a bit of data damage, nothing I couldn’t fix.”“Oh and they also gave me this”Received 700 zeni“Thanks, Vector and you too Changeman” Iris begins to leave>You should probably walk with her, a bit dangerous at night for girls>Head home
>>43525617>You should probably walk with her, a bit dangerous at night for girlsAt least walk her to the bus stop, since she said she doesn't live in ACDC.
>>43525617>Ask her how she knew they were sick. Does she have a netnavi?>Head Homenoooo metagaming
Calling Vote and writing
“Maybe we should go with Iris, it’s already dark now and its dangerous for a kid, let alone a girl to be out this late by themselves.” Changeman says“Yeah, plus she’ll get lost since she’s not from around here”“Isn’t that just you? I’d doubt the blind leading the blind here would be a good idea” Changeman adds, chuckling a bit.“Oh shush, you” pointing at your PET “Your as much as lost as I am.” You say before rushing after Iris.“So Iris, how’d you know that Squirrel statue had a virus? Do you have a NetNavi that informed you?” you ask as the two of you walk towards the bus stop next to the Metrolin.“I just noticed that it was acting strange than usual from the times I visited here from Cyber City.” She says in a soft tone.“Cyber City? Is that the place you live in?”“No, the town I live in is located in Cyber City, it’s called Central Town.” She responds as the two of you take a sit at the bench near the bus stop.An awkward silence takes place for a couple of minutes before Iris decides to break it“So… how come you’re wearing those black fingerless gloves?”“Hmm, these are winter gloves that a friend made for me back in Creamland. It’s basically almost cold there all year long.” You respond“Oh, did your friend knit that cross symbol on them as well?”“Yeah something about protecting me when I try to do something dangerous.” You say “And it seems to have worked for the past two years.”“Not to mention it’s basically a reminder for you to not and try to do something stupid when “she’s” not around to keep an eye on you” Changeman adds, though you get a feeling he’s smiling a bit under that helmet of his.Iris seems to be smiling as well and the rest of the time is spent with small talk until the bus arrives.“Thanks again Vector and you too Changeman” She says one more time
>>43526461You smile back at her “No problem”“If you are ever in town and need help again, you know where to find us” Changeman addsIris smiles “I’ll make sure to find you two if I need help” waving goodbye as the bus door closes“Well lets head home, Changeman, mom’s going to be worried if we waste too much time outside.”And you are right, your mother was about to send your father to look for and after much apologizing to her. You sit down with your family to eat dinner.>Ask why it smells like something burnt here>When are we going to greet the neighbors?>Hey dad the Metroline seems to not be opened yet
>>43526461>Your as much as lost as I am.”>yourTriggered.>Ask why it smells like something burnt here>When are we going to greet the neighbors?
>>43526512>When are we going to greet the neighbors?
>>43526512>Ask why it smells like something burnt hereThen, if more conversation is called for,>Hey dad the Metroline seems to not be opened yet.

>>43525643It'd be cool if she actually were human here
>>43526962only if you want to get plastered by Colonel
>>43526989He seems to be find with Megaman
>>43526512“So did something happen in the kitchen? Smells like something was burnt”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJZO0Drz2KQYour father sighs “It was a bit of a virus problem, seems like the maintenance person that was supposed to check for any problems in the house’s servers didn’t do a well enough job. Since the oven began to spew out fire when your mother was preparing dinner and nearly got burned as well.” Though the way he says the last sentence tells you he’s at not pleased at what happened.Neither are you, since you can still see that your mother is still a bit shaken from the ordeal.“So how did you handle the virus?”Your dad points to his PET at his side“So are you going to call the company and file a complainant against the worker?” you ask“Yeah, first thing tomorrow morning when I head to work, since at the moment it seems the company’s phone line is closed at this hour.”You eat a bit of from your plate “Mmm” your mother’s roast ham is the best as well as her cooked vegetables. As you continue eating, you decide to ask your mother when you are going to greet the neighbors.“When you come back from school tomorrow sweetie, at the moment it’s already this late at night.” She responds“Which reminds me, how come you were late getting back here?” She asks with a quizzically expression“We ran into a girl, named Iris who was staring at the Squirrel statue in the park” replying back“And we ended up helping her, since it turned out there was a virus attacking the Mr. Programs inside that handled the water filtering system in the statue for the parks fountain.” Changeman adds“So after that she thanked us and began to walk away, but then we both decided to walk with her to the bus stop and keep her company till the bus arrived” you finally addYour mother smiles “Well I’m glad I raised two fine gentlemen.”“Was she from around here?” Your father asks
>>43527527“No, she’s from a town called Central Town… Oh yeah dad before I forget, the Metrolin seems to not be open yet, so you are going to have to take the bus.”“Really? Shoot, guess I’m going to have to wake up early tomorrow then” your father says in a tone that he doesn’t enjoy the idea.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lUgiSzBvaAThe rest of the dinner is enjoyed in peace, sharing small talk with your family after finishing your meal and helping your mother clean the dishes. You head off to your new room and unpack some or your belongings which takes about half an hour to finish. After that you head off to the bathroom and brush your teeth before coming back to your room and changing into your pajamas.“Hey Vector, before you head to bed it might be a good idea to send “her” a message. She did want to know when we arrived.” Changeman says“Oh right, thanks for reminding me”>Keep the message short>Explain everything>Don’t forget to charge your chips >Save
>>43527574>>Keep the message short>Don’t forget to charge your chips >Save
>>43527574>Keep the message short>Don’t forget to charge your chips
>>43527574>Explain everything>Don’t forget to charge your chipsWhoever she is I don't think there's a reason not to be friendly and explain everything
>>43527574>>Explain everything>>Don’t forget to charge your chips
>Explain everything>Don’t forget to charge your chips
So why didn't we save our game?
>>43527574“Hey, hope you are doing well back at Creamland, we finally arrived at ACDC Town and even though it’s a small town the place is nice and peaceful. Changeman and I decided to explore the place the instant we arrived, he also says hi by the way. Aside from the normal neighborhoods, seems like the town has their own “princess” *chuckle*. We also found the school I’m going to attend tomorrow, though the gate locked and before you worry, no I didn’t try and break in. Oh and we ran into a girl named Iris at the park, she’s a soft-spoken girl that we helped out by deleting some viruses that were messing with the Squirrel statue. Yes you heard me a Squirrel statue, turns out it’s this town’s mascot from what the bronze plaque says. Anyways we helped her out and kept her company while we waited for her bus to come, she asked about the gloves you made for me and seemed to enjoy the story. You two might get along should you ever visit. So after everything that happened I headed home and it turns out that a virus messed with the oven that mother was about to use and was nearly burned in the process, my dad’s mad about it and I’m bit ticked off about it as well. Hopefully my dad can get some compensation for the burnt oven from the Company that hired maintenance person that looked at our house.So that’s everything that happened on my first day, a bit tiring. I’m heading off to bed, so I might not be able to read your message until morning.”“Alright that seems good enough, hope Pride isn’t too exhausted from running the kingdom to respond to the message ” You tell Changeman“She might be, after all one of the reasons we are here is because your Dad wants to get a wider view of how the other countries handle their networks to come up with something that would help with Creamland’s own network.”“True, but we’ll help her in our own way by becoming the #1 Netbattler in the world.”
>>43528538“I guess, but it’s going to be a long journey for that. I think dad will have beaten us with his research before we even become an Official Netbattler.” Changeman responds back“I’m not worried, we’ll figure out something together. I just hope running the kingdom, doesn’t cause too much stress to her that she ends up doing something drastic later on.”“Well I better charge the chips we used and head off to bed, night Changeman”“Night Vector”You place the blank chips within the charger and head off to bed>Saving data…Checking file…Progress savedMegaman BN Quest# 1 Endhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_vT2aWFoPEI’m kinda burnt out at the moment. So how did I do? Any complaints, concerns, questions? https://twitter.com/vectoxr1
>>43528613Only question is: next thread when?
Yay Pride-sama is a best girl!
>>43528691Either tomorrow or sometime within the week that follows, probably a Thursday at the latest.
Oh I forgot to add>Social link rank upYou are now considered an acquaintance with Iris.
>>43528758Time to fuse a persona of her arcana!
>>43528613Clean up your spelling and grammar, and you'll have a keeper.
>>43528788What Arcana is she though? The Hanged Man?
>>43528613Pretty good, especally if you're new to QM'ing. I like the fact that you've started off with giving suggested actions. Things tend to grind to a halt when every post from the QM ends with some variation of "what do you do?" On the negative side, you had a few typos and a couple of places where the dialogue felt a little stilted, but nothing major, and nothing that practice won't be likely to iron out. Keep it up, I look forward to seeing where this goes.
>>43528613Great thread! Only complaint is the wait between the updates, but I guess speed comes with experience, you'll get it
And now that I have time I should explain the combat into more detail, i'll update the pastebin later,So there is going to be two combat mechanics in this quest.The first being that when it's SOL or when the "plot" isn't moving to the next arc and boss fight.Certain chips will have infinite use like in the anime, like cannon. At the same time you have to recharge your chips in a sense since you already used the data stored in the chip.At the same time DC rolls will play an important role during those times as well, so hope you get close to the DC if can't reach it.At the same time cric fails won't count that much against you, they are still bad, but not "Oh you rolled a 1, looks like your navi is going to be deleted" way.
>>43528902When the "plot" is moving its going to be a mix of the combat dice I have in the paste bin and dc rolls.The chips will act similar to how they do in the game. Except for X-panel, escape, steal, etc... Since you will have the entire area to fight, those chips will act similar to a teleportation like they did in the anime.
>>43528798Yeah, I need to improve my writing, not to mention since this is my first thread the pressure didn't help.>>43528850Thank you for enjoying it and yeah I'm planning to or the plan is to have the quest go through the entire events of the bn series with a mix of some of the stuff that happened in the anime and manga.>>43528885Yeah, hopefully I can get better at typing fast, The pressure of starting a quest kinda dampened my speed, but its a feeling I hope to get use to.
>>43529084I don't often come to quests but I found this moderately enjoyable. I shall come again.
>>43529180Glad you enjoyed it anon and I hope I'm able to make it more enjoyable for everyone else as it progresses.
>>43529084The pressure of the first couple threads is pretty intense but after that you should be fine, just relax and have fun
>>43529321It's clear he knows his subject matter and I was quite amused by the nod to FireMan. I agree he'll be just fine.
>>43524057Changeman's abilities in a sense are not something that a normal, let alone customized net navi should have. Since of his origins being that he wasn't suppose to be a net navi and instead he was designed by your father to be a security network system for Creamland that was suppose to adapt by itself to handle different situations. Your father finding that it would be harder to control such a system should it ever go rouge decided to instead minimize it and remove many of its features while implementing it to be able to feel like the other net navis.
>>43529397Do try not to give away the narrative outside the story good sir.
>>43529397we D-reaper nowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUEwMTNr55Q

Still here if people have questions
>>43529935https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDrte-550bEit sounds really similar yeah
>>43531581I meant BN6... Though it sounds more Like Alpha from BN3 now that I remember harder.
Fuckin love battlenetwork. Sad I missed this, but stoked to come back.
>>43531628oh shit it dohuh, well no harm in recycling a good chiptune
>>43531019any idea on a rough schedule like will this be a every 3-4 days or weekly thing?
>>43531794No rough idea yet, I have college to worry about. But if I had to guess probably every 4 days at the latest, or during the weekend if I'm busy.
>>43532372cool, and good luck with everything!
