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/k9Kew3FB (Updated)Choices 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.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZocM0ZCnH5Qhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2m6c_ojaKlgCombat is explained in the pastebin, as well as the other quest mechanics. But I will explain it within the quest if need be.>Last time, Vector and his family arrived at the town of ACDC that they will be staying for a while. After receiving permission from his parents, both Vector and his PET Changeman.exe began to explore the town. After walking around for a bit and finding the location of the school he was going to attend the next day, Vector ran into a certain girl named Iris at the park who was in distress about a virus problem within the Squirrel Statue. Jacking in Changeman.exe, the two of them were able to solve the virus problem, much to the joy of Iris. After walking Iris and keeping her company till her bus arrived, Vector decided to call it a day and head home where he found out the news that there was another virus problem at his house that his dad took care of. After dinner and sending a message to his friend back at Creamland, Vector headed off to bed so he could be ready for his first day of school tomorrow.
>>43674860The next morning*Beep* *Beep*“Vector, wake up!”“Mm… five more minutes…”“You are going to be late for school if you don’t wake up soon!”“Mmm…” You lift yourself up and begin to rub your eyes. “I’m up…” you say while letting out a yawn.You get off the bed and head towards the bathroom to get ready for the day, taking a quick shower, brushing your teeth, and grooming your hair. You head back to your room, to change into your clothes.“By the way Vector, you have three new messages” Changeman notifies you“Oh, mind reading them for me?”“Sure, the first one is from Princess Pride” he says“Hello Vector, glad to hear you and your family arrived safely to Electopia. I’m doing fine, though I’m a bit tired from having to deal with political business all day, wish you were still here since the only time I could relax a bit was when we had our talks over tea. From what you told me in your message it seems you had a fun first day at ACDC, and this Iris girl sounds nice, glad you kept her company till her bus arrived. Oh, before I forget your chips should be arriving sometime within the next two days or so. Sorry about the delay, I attached a bit of a house-warming present to the email. Hope you have fun on your first day of school tomorrow! And Changeman, please keep Vector safe for me.Princess Pride”Received HP Memory“Glad she’s doing okay and I to miss our tea time conversations.” You say putting on your green vest over the long white sleeve shirt you are wearing.“Second one is from Dad”“I almost ran out the house without giving you your allowance for the month. Keep your mom safe for me, you two and make sure you don’t spend your allowance on something you might regret later. Love Dad”Received 5000 zenny
>>43674889“And last one is from PET NetNews”“WWW crime on the rise! WWW’s plan to control the net might be starting!”“And that’s all the messages”“Thanks Changeman” you say as you tie the bandana that carries your family symbol around your arm.>Eat breakfast; you might be late for school>Just grab some toast and run towards school>Head straight for school
>>43674901>Just grab she toast and run towards schoolGotta run into our next love interest

Calling vote and writing
>>43674860I thought you were dead.>>43675442>Latelatelate!!, Gotta meet the teacher for my class!I think this will provide us with more fun
You grab your chips, PET, and backpack and head towards the living room where your mom has breakfast ready.“Morning Vector and Changeman” your mom says“Morning mom” the two of you say https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMu7y1B36DUYou grab some toast and place a sunny sided up egg on top and rush out the door“Have a fun first day at school, honey!” Your mom shouts “Will do, mom!” you both shoutSomehow with agile and skill you rush to school with the egg staying on the toast, as if it were glued on it, passing by many students that are walking from their homes towards school. “You know, I think I’ve seen this somewhere before.” Changeman speaks up“Huh, what do you mean?” “Well from what I recall, usual who ever runs from their home on the first day of school with toast in their mouths, will end up bumping into someone of the opposite sex and from then on the universe forces their paths to intertwine or something.”“Right… like I’m about to bump into someone who is going to end up getting dragged into adventures with me.” You reply sarcastically“Just gotta turn this corner and I’ll be inside the school ga!?! Look out!”You end up crashing into someone and the two of you end up falling on the ground on your butts.“Ouch…” the blonde girl in front of you says>Latelatelate!!, Gotta meet the teacher for my class!
>>43675589Fuck, messed up the update>Apologize>Latelatelate!!, Gotta meet the teacher for my class
is this the work of the legendary time warp chip?
>>43675589You fucked up again.
>>43675531Nah, some stuff came up so I couldn't run on saturday or sunday.
>>43675613>>Latelatelate!!, Gotta meet the teacher for my classI'm curious to see who is going to be our Protoman. Hopefully it won't actually be Protoman.
Posting MMBN music + bump for interest.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cxkOJ6QlFQ
....I don't get it. Was the toast cliche super important in the anime or something?
>>43676219Nope, it was deciding who you were going to bump into first.Had you gone with eating breakfast, you would have run into Lan and Dex and gotten into an argument over who was at fault.Mayl and Yai was the heading straight for school option.
>>43675589“Sorry about that… wait where's my toast is?”“It’s right here on my head, along with your egg…” the girl tells you, though from the looks of things she isn’t happy about it. Then again any sane person wouldn’t be happy about being in her situation either.“Ahaha…” you laugh nervously“Sorry about that.. Uh you can have it if you are hungry…”She grabs the toast and egg, a smile forming on her face… and she throws them both at your face.“Watch were you’re going next time.” She tells you before heading towards the school building in a huff“Smooth move, can’t wait to see how Princess Pride replies to these events.” Changeman says, chuckling a bit“Yeah, let’s omit this from the records…”“Well, come on, get that egg out of your face and lets head to the teachers’ lounge to meet our new teacher and find out class we are in.” he sayshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFODLyyvLb4“Yeah, yeah” you reply heading into the school building and taking a right turn, you find the teachers’ lounge room door. A woman comes out of the lounge room and walks towards you.“You must be Vector, right?” she asks“Uh, yes ma’am”She smiles “Welcome to ACDC elementary school then, my names Miss. Mari and I’m going to be your teacher for the next two years. ““Nice to meet then Miss. Mari, and this is my PET Changeman”“Hello, ma’am” he says“Nice to meet you too Changeman. Well come on its almost time for class, follow me to your room.”The three of you walk towards the hallways, passing a few doors and finally arrive at your destination, classroom 5-A.“Well time to say hello to your fellow students, Vector” Miss. Mari saysShe enters the classroom first, getting the students attention. “Class we have a new student today joining us.”>Enter the room and introduce yourself>Let Miss.Mari do the introduction
>>43676381>>Enter the room and introduce yourself

Calling vote, time to roll some dice1. do it yourself2. let the teacher handle it
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>43676644Lets try that again
Still here, just the update is going to be a bit long
>>43676381You enter the room and the entire classroom’s eyes are upon you“Hello, my name is Vector. My family moved here from Creamland for my father’s job and we’ll be staying in ACDC for a while, I hope we can all get along.”There’s some whispering between the students in the classroom“He’s from Creamland?” A few students say“Isn’t that an island nation, north of Electopia?” A girl with a pink hair clip in hair says“Yeah, it’s an island nation covered in ice for most of the year” a girl sitting in front of the first one with the pink hair clip adds in, though she seems younger than most of the class here.A boy with a blue bandana, wearing an orange vest finally speaks up “So do you have a Net Navi?”“Yeah” you take out your PET from your side holster and show it to the class, “His names Changeman.exe”“Hello, it’s nice to meet everyone.” He says“Hah!, he looks like a wimp, just like your blue wimpy of a navi, Lan.” A big kid? With a Mohawk shouts from the back“What was that? I couldn’t hear you over my 5 win streaks against your Gutsman, Dex.” The kid with the blue bandana replies “What!?, you just got lucky. I’ve upgraded Gutsman since our last netbattle and he is going to crush Megaman this time!”“Boys!!!” Miss. Mari shouts, “Stop fighting!, and what’s this about netbattling? You know it’s against the school rules to have net battles, let alone anywhere else without a license, right?”Both Lan and Dex try to get themselves out of the hole they dug themselves into, most of the class laughs at these turn of events, while you stay there standing a bit confused at what just happened. “Guess my time here is going to be interesting…” you sayThe door opens, and the girl you bumped into at the school gates enters“Sorry, I’m late, someone dumb who wasn’t loo….” She locks eyes with you, “YOU!!!”“Hey…you” responding back
>>43677246Yup things are going to get interesting“Hmm, Vector, do you and Mary know each other “Miss. Mari asks“Kinda of” you weakly reply, “Uh can I go sit down now?”“Well, you are sitting next to Mayl” she says, looking at the sitting chart in her hands“So which girl is Mayl?” you ask“Over here” The girl with the pink hair clip shouts as she points to the empty desk to her leftTaking your sit and trying to ignore the stare you are getting from Mary, Miss.Mari begins the class.“So for first period we are going to go over some virus busting basics, any volunteers?”>Volunteer>Let Lan volunteer, he seems to have his hand raised up>Remain silent
>>43677274>Let Lan volunteer, he seems to have his hand raised up
>>43677274>“So for first period we are going to go over some virus busting basics, any volunteers?”>>>VolunteerVirus busting? That's fun.

>>43677625Three mini bombs, shotgun, and sword.Nice
>>43677651Well? How does the combat go?
>>43677651Going to be explained by Miss.Mari in a bit.
>>43677933mmmm delicious Ms Mari
>>43677274You are about to raise your hand before you see Lan raise his own hand first“Okay then, Lan is going to demonstrate the basics of virus busting for the class. Everyone jack into your desks.”“Jack in Changeman.exe!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71lV5MknViYViewpoint changed to Changemanhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ai3Lr-SgyuwYou see a bunch of cyber desks, with the classrooms net navi’s. You spot a girl navi with rings as twin tails behind you, guessing that’s Mary’s since she is sitting behind you. Mayl’s navi is next to you; she’s pink and attached to her helmet is a pair of transparent, ribbon-like antennae that curve behind her. You spot a giant net navi at the end of the row that Lan was sitting in, must be Dex’s Gutsman. There is a tall net navi with wings on his back, sitting in front of Roll, guess that’s the young girl in the classrooms net navi. Finally a blue net navi that seems small, but gives off a vive that you’ve meet him somewhere before, steps forward.“So that’s Lan’s net navi” you hear Vector say“Lan and I are ready Miss. Mari” Megaman says“Okay, beginning simulation” The navi in front of the cyber chalk board saysTwelve Mettaur’s spawn“Okay time to go over the basics. Viruses are a malicious or corrupted program that disrupts the operating system or cyber network of electronic devices. Since in today’s society with the ever expanding network, you are more than likely to encounter them, a NetNavi must have basic virus busting abilities to navigate safely on the net, otherwise its actions will be limited.”“They can be deleted either by using the buster or by using chips. First we are going to fight them with the buster, please roll me two 1d20, the DC for this is 13”

Megaman getting shitted on. Will arguably the most important character in this game besides ourselves and our Navi gonna have an early death?
>>43678558>losing to mettaurs
>>43678223https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2K_r_tuCjMMegaman’s right hand transformers, revealing his buster. He begins firing at the simulated viruses; he hits three of them, deleting them quickly before the rest scatter. Two of the Mettaur’s that remained in front of him attack, lifting their pickaxes, before striking the ground and sending shockwaves towards Megaman. He jumps to the right, firing his buster again hitting one of Mettaur viruses, before he is struck from an attack behind, that disorients him long enough for a second and third strike to hit him from the sides.He screams in pain, but quickly recovers in time to avoid another hit, he starts firing at the four to his right quickly deleting them, before nearly avoiding an upcoming strike to his left. It takes a while, but Megaman beats the simulated virus group, though he took a bit of beating for it.“Alright then, Lan. Megaman’s hp was 100 before the battle correct?” Miss.Mari asks“Yeah, it got down to 53 hp for that simulation. It’s back to 100 now though.”“Alright then, Lan will you please tell the class the five chips you have gotten from your folder.”“Three mini bombs, a shotgun, and a sword chip, Miss Mari.” Lan says“Alright then this time select shotgun and the sword chip for the next simulation. The DC for this next one is 10, roll me two 1d20.

>>43678759https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Et9wOYfmNj8“Ready, Megaman?” Lan says“Yeah, lets beat this with flying colors” Megaman replies back to him“Shotgun chip, slot in!”Megaman’s buster gets a bit of an upgrade, looking a bit more stronger. He fires twice quickly and ends up deleting two of the Mettaur’s In the front and the two behind them. The group of eight remaining Mettaur’s scatter and try to surround Megaman, who ends up dispatching two more before dodging an upcoming attack from his left side.“As you can see class, certain chips have different effects. For the shotgun it hits both the enemy in front and anything behind it. Certain chips like “Scatter Shot” can hit multiply enemies if it hits successfully, while chips like “Cube” can be used to block an upcoming attack. It’s good for you to experiment with various chips and find what suits your fighting style.” Miss. Mari says“Lan can you insert the sword chip now.”“On it Miss. Mari”“Sword chip, slot in!”Megaman’s left hand turns into a sword“As you can see, a mixture of certain chips can be added to give an edge to your net navi against viruses.”Megaman starts rushing at the remaining Mettaur’s, he slashes a few while hitting the remaining with the shotgun, in a few seconds it’s over and Megaman doesn’t have a scratch on him.“Nice job, Megaman” Lan says“Nice operating skills” he replies back“Good job you two, so does anyone have any questions?” >What about Net Navi’s, how does combat work there?>What happens to the chips that used?>Are there bonuses that chips add to combat?>Something else?

Still here, long update
Bumping from my phone from the gym. Tired as fuck, but wanna know how this goes when I am back home. So yeah keep it up OP!
>>43679214https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEWfZtkPGfo“So what happens to the chips that are used?”“Good question, Vector, Lan mind showing the class the three chips you just used.”Lan lifts three blank chips, showing them to the entire class“As you can see the data stored into the chips is transferred to the net navi, causing the chip to go blank. When a chip is blank you can use it anymore for the day.”“So is the data gone from the chip forever? Do I have to go out and get a new chip to replace the old one?” You askMiss. Mari shakes her head “It doesn’t mean that you have to go out and get a new one, the data is still there forever burned into the chip, all it requires is for you to go out and *recharge* the chip In a sense to get the data back.” Miss. Mari says“And where can I recharge my chips?”“There are many places you can recharge your chips at, such as chip shops, your home, there are designated areas within DenCity that have signs with a Chip with a percentage sign in it, even the school has one. All you have to do is select recharge or type it and your chip folder will be back to 100% usage. Though for some reason blank chips tend to restore themselves when a strong opponent is close by.”“Hmm, what about combat with other net navis how does that work?”At this question, Miss. Mari frowns a bit and shakes a her head “ Well I hope you are not playing to have any net-battles on school grounds, Vector.”“Ahaha… maybe..”She lets out a sigh “Well as for how combat works with net-battles is, compared to virus busting you can only use the chip once.”“How come?”“Well, since chips were basically invented to fight viruses instead of other net navi’s, governments around the world issued a law that all blank chips created and used to store data would be designed in a way that their usages would be only once if a net battle occurs.”
>>43680722“So if I used a sword chip and attacked a net navi, it would disappear after the first strike?”“Yes”“Even if I missed?”“Even if you missed, Vector. Chips aren’t meant to be used against other people’s net navis, they are meant to be used to protect the peace that everyone enjoys against virus attacks. I mean if net navi’s were able to use chips an unlimited amount of times against others, then there would be bigger destruction and damage to net society caused from such fights compared to the damage groups of viruses are capable of doing.”“Alright, but say a navi is the one causing the problem. Would it still apply to them or would they be considered a virus and allow me to use the chips as many times I want against them.”“Still no, Vector since navi’s and viruses give off different signals on the net. The chips were basically designed that way to react to those signals, so there are no loopholes. Even if a navi was created out of viruses, if it gives off a signal similar to net navi’s then the rule applies to them to.” She replies back“So, what about a virus that gives off a net navi signal’s, would the rule apply to them to?”At that question she gives you a quizzically look “I guess it would apply to them as well, never heard about a virus that gave off a navi signal. But if they existed it would be harder to delete it since they would fall under the same rules if it was a net battle.”“Last question; are there bonuses that chips add in combat?”
>>43680722>Though for some reason blank chips tend to restore themselves when a strong opponent is close byclearly they all leveled up right before the boss fight.
>>43680769“Yes, in net battles certain chips add bonuses to the dice rolls, an example would be the mini bomb chip that Lan had selected. If it were a net battle instead of a virus simulation, Lan would have received a +3 bonus to his hit roll. The sword chip he used would have added a bonus as well, a +1 to his hit roll. There are other various chips that can add bonuses to your combat rolls during a net battle, at the same time there are certain chips that can help avoid an entire hit from an enemy navi, such as the “Steal” chip can be used to escape a hit or to teleport in front of an ally to protect them from a hit. An X-panel chip would add a +1 to your dodge roll for the next chip that was about to be used, while avoiding an upcoming hit.” She says“The best information I can give you is experiment and collect various chips, find something that suits your fighting style.” She says while flexing her arms“Oh and there are rumors that placing certain chips in a certain order that can unlock an even more powerful attack, I think it was called Program Advances.” Miss. Mari adds“Any more questions, no?” She scans the room “Well then…” she locks eyes with you “ Vector, pop quiz!”“EH!?”“Can you tell me what the difference was between the fights with Lan using his buster and using chips?”You take a while to think about, and then you recall a certain number was lowered“The DC roll?”“Ding! Ding! Correct, if you use chips the DC roll will be lower. At the beginning of the quest viruses will be easy to beat with just one hit from your buster, but as it progresses you will encounter even stronger viruses and with stronger viruses comes higher DC rolls. So my best advice to you is use chips when need be.”“So, now that’s out of the way first period is over, enjoy your homeroom time. I’ll be back when second period starts." Miss. Mari says as she exits the room
>>43680796“Well, that was informative” Changeman speaks up“Yeah… Well lets go get to know our classmates”> Talk to Mayl, Mary, and the little blonde girl she's having a conversation with>Talk to Lan>Talk to Dex
>>43680843Forgot to add pick one, this is the last update. You'll get to talk to the rest on the next thread
>>43680796That's pretty meta.>>43680843>Talk to Mayl, Mary, and the little blonde girl she's having a conversation with
>>43680843>Talk to Mayl, Mary, and the little blonde girl she's having a conversation withproperly apologize. DO NOT OFFER TO BUY HER FOOD. Everybody else is going to offer to buy her food
>>43680876Well I did say Miss. Mari was about to break the fourth wall for you
>>43680769My those are some bothersome rules 'eh Bass?Also, FUCK I'm LATE
I guess start pimping yourself with the ladies, taking note what Pride-sama will do when she finds out.
>>43680910You have no idea how many pictures I have for the megaman bn cast. The cast is fucking huge.
oh sweet nostalgia
Also is Chargeman going to get buster mods later to provide a mod bonus to buster rolls?
>>43680973You don't have to roll for the buster since his has a target lock on base. But he is going to collect some stuff from boss fights that changes his buster to either add bonuses for chips, have a different form of attack, etc..
Funny way to explain the rules.
>>43681158it gave me an erection yeah
Still here, big update
>>43680843“Changeman, why don’t you get to know the rest of the classes navi’s while I talk with our classmates”“Alright, I want to talk to Megaman first though, something about him that gives me a familiar vibe… I don’t know why, but for some reason I feel like I should hate the guy.” He says as he rubs his fingers on the chin of his helmet.“Well, don’t start a fight, otherwise Miss. Mari is going to yell at us if we have a net battle here and she hears about it.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bOBYDq0gsc“I won’t… Oh and don’t cause another incident with that Mary girl, best apologize to her as much as you can… probably offer her food” he laughs at that last statement“Don’t remind me…”You stand up from your desk and walk towards Mayl’s desk; well more like you just took a few steps since she sits right next to you. It seems she is having a conversation with Mary and the other little blonde girl in the class.“So then as I walking towards the school building, the new transfer student bumps into me and his breakfast ends up landing on the top of my head, then he says “Sorry about that… wait where’d my toast go?” Mary says, trying to imitate your voiceMayl and the little blonde girl end up laughing as Mary retells the events that happened this morning in front of the school gate“Ahahaha..s.so..then what happened after he said that?” Mayl laughs, her arms holding her stomach“I grabbed the toast and sunny sided up egg that I still don’t know how he was able to carry while he was running. I smiled at him, before I threw his breakfast back at him, I stormed into school building and had to go wash up which ending up causing me to be late for class. I’m never forgiving that jerk if I see him.”
>>43682069“Oh come on, the two of you should be getting along, the two of you are transfer students so there is no need to have bad blood between the two of you, let alone on his first day here.” Mayl says, after she stopped laughing for a bit longer“Mayl’s right, the two of you should be getting along, you’re going to be seeing each other for some time now since he’s going to be attending school from now on.” The little blonde girl adds inMary seems to think about it for a while“Fine…but only if he apologizes and grovels a bit”At that last statement you let out a cough to notify the girls that you’ve been standing behind them for a while. They turn around and finally notice you.“Yo” you say raising your right hand as if to wave hi“Well, maybe you can forgive him a bit early, since he’s here.” Mayl says as she turns to MaryYou walk towards Mary who’s still giving you a bit of a glare. “I’m sorry that I bumped into you this morning ”she seems to ease a bit “And for having my breakfast land on top of your head.” and it seems her defenses are bit back up, before she finally lets out a sigh.“It’s fine...just don’t let it happen again” she saysWell that’s one problem solv…. You feel a finger on the top of your nose “Literally, don’t let it happen again, otherwise I won’t forgive you so easily next time.” Mary says giving you an intense glare for a second.Or maybe problem half solved, you think to yourself.The little blonde girl that’s next to Mary, chuckles a bit before introducing herself “Well I’m glad that matter between the two of you is settled. My name’s Yai Ayanokoji, but you can call me Yai if you want.”“Mayl Sakurai, but just Mayl will be fine”“Mary Towa, I’m fine with Mary”“I’m Vector, Vector Mugen” you say
>>43682100>Vector Mugenmr badass mccool here, ready to serve his princessthe forehead shine is so distracting
>>43682100“So Vector since you are new to town, do you want to come with me, Mary, and Yai tomorrow to Den City. We were going to show Mary around today, but since you’re new here we can go tomorrow if you want to join us?” Mayl asks“I’d love to, but if it’s fine with you guys.”“I don’t mind” Yai says“It’s fine, it’ll be more fun that way with more people” Mary chimes inMayl smiles “Well then it’s settled, meet us in front of the bus stop tomorrow then, Vector.”>Saving data….file found….overwriting…Game saved>Megaman BN Quest #2 endhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_vT2aWFoPEWell I hope I did a bit better than last time, any questions? comments, concerns?

>>43682137thanks for running, i know you're busy with college but if you could have some responses/updates pretyped before the quest it might help retain some more playershad fun, looking forward to next time
>>43682137And I forgot my twitterhttps://twitter.com/vectoxr1
>>43682195Things might not go according to canon since the social links will play a part. An example being befriending Mr. Match, before the the events of MM3, he might not join Wily and actually give you a heads up that the WWW is back. He was basically balancing the entire thing, its not the first time he's had to run with food in his.

>>43682305you realize that diverging from canon IS the central point of controversy in fanfic quests, yes?I'm not saying you should or shouldn't follow canon, I'm saying that working so closely to canon is what makes things so dicey.
>>43682387I thought it was strictly sticking to canon was what got people up in arms in these types of quests?
>>43685458You get people who care more about making sure what's happening fits what they understand of canon than about what actually happens in the quest, yes. This is in particular a problem when a QM has to spend more time writing than making sure he gets every single detail right.But you also have other types.People metagaming for no IC reason at all, not even trying to hide that they want to directly exercise control over a story instead of through a character. This is in part due to "I win" mentalities.Writing oneself into a corner is also an everpresent specter for a QM. Initially, they most certainly want to write characters that they know, and that's no problem at all. But at some point, there will come a time that the new plot lines enter the story that the QM doesn't actually want to write. They become increasingly restricted by events or hidden details that have not yet been revealed but everyone realizes out of story. If everyone realizes this and either enjoys such development or knows when to agree as one to diverge fully as canon, sure. But there are cases where:>not everyone wanted to or realized that things weren't canon anymorewhere it feels wrong to them for characters to act differently or events to transpire in completely new ways.or>Nobody realizesand the QM just keeps writing stuff he doesn't want to write until he gets sick of it and burns out.This is an important danger to watch for considering that BN is such a long runner.but there IS plenty of potential for things to go well. Just, for the love of god, Wily, and Light, don't do crossovers, ESPECIALLY to other quests. That's a whole new can of worms that I cannot in good faith support.
>>43685458>>43685597there are other types of issues that may pose a problem, but I can't remember them specifically at the moment.What's important is that they all come out the woodwork the moment you get within arm's reach of canon and canon characters, whatever you do to them.
