I appreciate that the First Precinct is bound by red tape and procedure, and can't just cowboy it's way out of trouble.

Cheers mates, I'm glad you're enjoying it so far. The life of a law-abiding detective is a hard but rewarding one. Enjoy some proto-BANs.

Many many moons ago I lurked tgchan and tried a few quests, it was a long time ago and I was pretty bad at it then though. I guess the secret to improvement was just doing nothing quest-related for the better part of a decade

I'm always really impressed when people with a different default language make storytime happen in English here.

Maybe Ban will get to play with his trusty shotgun in due time...
No. 133263 ID: eb1fcc

Gotta say, I quite like this quest so far. I thought from the thumbnail it was gonna be a modstaff shitpost quest but this is just interesting well-written cop drama.

Keep up the good work, I'm engaged with this strange mystery.

I get the feeling STEVE isn't as much of an asshole as he lets on, either.

A bit of a heads-up, from here until mid-August I'll be in the process of moving out of my current apartment and into a new one a few states away. I think updates will stay pretty consistent throughout, but there might be a bit of a gap in August when things get especially hectic.

STEVE is in fact a demon. As the son of Joe Durst and ALICIA, you could say that John takes after his mother... Speaking of STEVE, I found this early draft where I planned on actually making him a human, and even angrier.

Another proto-BAN, I believe this is the oldest one in my sketchbooks. If I remember right, the original idea was Ace Attorney but in hell.

Indeed, it's the most consistent way to discern them from other critters.

Sorry about the tardy update mates, I was finishing up the rest of my work before the big holiday break. I've got a lot less on my plate now, so I'll try to increase my output! For the holidays I'll post with (slightly) more frequency, and return to weekend updates in late January/February.

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!!!

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.

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.
