It took a little longer than I'd hoped but my IRL shitshow's successfully concluded, haha. We should be back on track for the coming weekends. Enjoy a few proto-2P cops for your patience

A day late, but we've reached the conclusion of the first thread!! Thanks to everyone who's been posting with me for a little over a year. Feel free to do any post-quest debriefing in here.

Going forward, I think I'm going to take a weekend off, then start running something short for fun--either a shitpost or an actual interlude for BAN BAN, I'm not sure which yet. Once that concludes, we'll be into the actual second thread. Thanks again for playing so far!!!

Was no casualties for 1P a best-case scenario considering the choices we made?
No. 135660 ID: 0b9353

5 second precint casualties? Will oye injured not survive the night?
No. 135665 ID: fa3fbc

The concept of casualties include injured - it’s not necessarily that they’re dead, it’s that they’re out of the fight.

BAN's been one of the better protagonists in recent memory, and I'm excited to see what else he's got in him!
No. 135669 ID: eb1fcc

for real, his spacey personality makes a really good balancing measure against overly-complex plotting from suggestors, and I'm liking the hints that picking combat options too often wouldn't be a good idea with his PTSD.

I've been digging through my sketchbooks for more old BAN BAN-related material, enjoy a very early form of The Major.

It was a very solid outcome, to be sure.

>>135665 has the right idea, I was counting injuries alongside the dead for the casualty stats. Outside of KEN and Chase, most of the raid team that hit the traphouse should get through this.

Bless you both, I'm glad you've all been enjoying him so far. I've had a lot of fun writing for BAN, and for the other leads. On some level, I think my own personal enjoyment of the cast has been part of what's kept me (relatively) consistent so far, haha.
No. 135678 ID: eb1fcc

Huh, so is this thread implying Dane was trans, or is this a different Dane?

Don't answer that here because I want to see that answered in quest, I just wanna put the idea into the thread here
No. 135698 ID: 5a788d

Or father/daughter. Or just coincidence: there may be many people with the surname Dane.

Looks like summer's more or less over for me already, damn!! I was hoping to be a little more frequent with my posts, but I'm still happy with our forward progress. Even while shit's hitting the fan I should be able to keep up an update per week schedule again, and once winter rolls around maybe I can get a little more productive.

I follow, haha. Each of BAN's squads grabbed a couple launchers in last week's post, I guess you could compare them to M72s.

Things are getting crazy again! This coming week will be particularly absurd for me. Ideally I'll have my life relatively sorted again by next Sunday, but if I end up missing that update I'll try to get an extra one or two in the following week.

Sorry for the wait, gentlemen!! I've really been in the trenches IRL, but my situation's finally starting to improve again. With a little luck, my schedule should be back to normal within the next week or two.

Happy Turkey Day, gents! I wrote today's update in between some very intense cooking sessions. Next up, the annual food coma/binge eating regret party.

Today also marks the end of this interlude thread!! We'll be back into the investigation proper either this weekend or whenever the universe decides to stop railing me next.

I can't unsee that now that you've pointed it out, haha. Sometimes I don't realize what kind of goofy shillouettes I've given some of the demon characters until you guys open my eyes, like BAN's secret existence as a capybara.

A day late but still Merry Christmas, happy holidays, etc. etc.!! I hope everyone got something nice, either from other people or for themselves, haha. I've been really sending it with traveling this holiday season, but I should be back in the city and on some semblance of a normal schedule by the time we get into the new year.

I remember back in the day there being that legend of the 'curse' for quest authors... I've spent the past couple weeks getting bitchslapped by COVID and my job back to back. Hopefully that's the full extent of my curse haha, that was a pretty miserable ordeal.

For your patience, regarde some Danes that I found in an old sketchbook during my quarantine/recovery period.

VERY long story short, I was in no way done with my curse, ahaha. One car crash and a *lot* of work IRL later, I think I'm finally safe to get back into our usual groove. My city's decided that today's when we celebrate St. Patrick's Day, so I guess I'm celebrating my return to this site with more whiskey!

Also, a bit of an interest poll--one of my main jobs IRL is as a musician, and recently I've started gigging on keyboards in addition to my main instrument. The new side hustle made me start thinking about putting together some kind of OST for BAN BAN, haha. If I recorded a few Phoenix Wright-esque tracks in my free time would that be something you lot would want to listen to?
No. 137225 ID: df76b1

Oh hell yeah, plus It might lead you to something grand.

Not enough Quests try to weave in music, tbh. Though 's not like that's necessarily easy, either!
No. 137288 ID: 8b82ee

I am a huge fan of a sort of music and would be interested to hear what you could create in a different media. I am certain that it would be a feast for the ears.
No. 137369 ID: f03203

I only got into reading quests on this site pretty recently, but BAN BAN is probably my favourite overall. I had a feeling when I was reading through that it had a very French style and character, so I can't help but find it a bit funny looking at this to confirm you are indeed very fucking French. Love your work, can't wait for the next update

it definitely seems like one that could be adapted after it wraps up into a successful graphic novel

The past month or so has been a shitshow, ahaha. But now I'm the proud owner of *3* pieces of paper with my name on them, so I guess it's all worth it! Now that I'm done with school for the rest of my life, let's see if my luck improves at all.

Welcome aboard mate. Sorry for making you wait so long for the next update, haha.

Much love for you lot being eternally patient as life continues to get weird, haha. I've written a couple songs for this little OST idea, but I'm in the middle of a huge move across the country, so recording them has had to wait a bit longer. I've jinxed myself a few times already but I'm going to knock on wood, update as I'm able and hopefully get back into some sort of stride in August or September.

This quest has been a wonderful lot of fun and I hope you get over your author curse soon.
The music composing sounds really exciting! Will be great for the animated series.

Greetings from my new place!! Very exciting, but also incredibly stressful, ahaha. Job searching is not something that I missed...

In other news, I'm testing out what BAN BAN would look like in MS Paint-tier color--I'm not a great digital painter but it could save me some real paint, and maybe give you lot a bit more to look at. Let me know if you like it more or less than our usual greyscale business.
No. 137669 ID: 398700

if you can find a good watercolor type brush and go for a slightly more painterly look with how you color it might work without any extra effort really, but the flat colors don't help it much and it might take some of that comic bookish charm your art's currently rocking
No. 137670 ID: 398700

that said, skin color does help the white color "stick out" more and makes 'em look a bit more obviously alien

Hmmm, I have the same thought about it. In between existential dread/job searching I'm experimenting with different tools in Krita, what do you think of this? This brush pack feels a little better in my hand than the default one, I'll get some more practice in with it and post some (marginally) better examples later when I get a chance.

Dumping a few things from my sketchbook that I scanned and tried these new brushes on, let me know what you lads think. I think the texture fits a lot better than the flat tones, I might mess around with this for a bit if you lot are interested.

this one here has pretty much the perfect mix I think. Very simple colors, but enough texture and intentional flaws to them to maintain that hand-drawn feeling that makes your art work so well. I especially like how the coloring doesn't quite reach the lines in places, both as a highlight for the shading and as a way to make the art look more deliberately roughshod.

Very in-line with the themes of the quest, given Ban's department is kinda meant to be struggling and a bit imperfect.
No. 137678 ID: 398700

This one's also nice, the bleeding colors really highlight how uncomfortable they are.

Job searching and general gigging continues, I'm really on the grind now...! My life will be pretty in flux for the next couple months, so thanks as always for your patience. Have an unemployed Dane for your troubles.

I appreciate the thoughts mate, I'll keep experimenting further with these brushes in my free time.
No. 137896 ID: dec69d

There is something so adorably wholesome about Dane trying to apply for a kindergarden.

As an aside, does the mayor dye her hair, or does it grow purple? I..... don't know all the ruless of BAN BAN world.

We wish you the best of luck with your job hunting! We really apreciate you taking the time to keep us in the know!

I'm still a couple days away from being able to properly update again, but in the interim I do want to throw some of these little tracks that I've been making at you lot!!! On this link are several tracks that I made for different moments in the first thread and the interlude. I'll add to both of these lists whenever my free time results in more tracks. They're very rough but I'm having fun making them, haha. I plan to re-record/mix them all once I have a larger number of them put out.


The Major claims to be all-natural when it comes to her hair. Nobody questions it, at least not to her face...!

The only thing that comes to my mind when I see that pink shirt is what Vegeta was wearing at one point in the show.
