This site is a collection of MMBN-related projects ranging from real-world attempts to bring the world of Mega Man Battle Network to reality, to games, to community.
If you know of a project that would be great for this site, let me know via Socii/Twitter or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
NetBattlers is a tabletop roleplaying game meant to emulate the experience of Capcom’s Mega Man Battle Network series. NetBattlers seeks to create a rules-light, narrative-first gateway to roleplaying in MMBN’s world. Instead of emulating the nuts and bolts of the games, NetBattlers focuses on creating concise, flexible rules and letting players focus on the fantasy first.
The series may be dead, but that doesn't mean the fans are. The MMBN community is thriving, and more people are joining weekly. Quite amazing, really.
