Introduction

Haruyuki "Haru" Arita is a short, fat boy who is constantly bullied at the Umesato Junior High School which results in him having exceptionally low self-esteem. To escape the torment of real life, he logs onto the school's Local Network where he plays squash by himself and always gets the highest scores. One day, he checks the squash rankings to find his high score beaten by Kuroyukihime, the popular and attractive female Student Council Vice-President, who invites him to lunch the next day after she saved him from some bullies. Here Kuroyukihime introduces Haruyuki to Brain Burst, a secret program that is able to accelerate the human cognitive process to the point at which time appears to stop. Haruyuki soon learns that Brain Burst is more than just a program, but a Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online (VRMMO) Fighting Game where people fight each other in fierce duels in order to obtain Burst Points which can be expended for acceleration abilities in the real world. Kuroyukihime then enlists Haruyuki's help in reaching Level 10 within Brain Burst by defeating the "Six Kings of Colour" to ultimately meet the creator of Brain Burst and learn its true purpose. Haruyuki agrees and promises to help her with this, as he is very thankful for her stopping the bullies.

Brain Burst
A program which allows a person to accelerate their cognitive processes, basically enabling a person to think at a faster rate. Different commands allow for varying acceleration abilities and each uses a certain number of Burst Points. It is also, primarily a Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online (VRMMO) Fighting Game, where a person can duel other players within a setting called the Accelerated World in order to obtain more Burst Points. Every person having a copy of Brain Burst has the copyright to distribute the program to one additional person, despite if it fails to install in their neuro linker or not. If a user loses all of his or her burst points, the Brain Burst program will uninstall itself and block all re-installation attempts, thus permanently removing the user's ability to accelerate in addition to erasing all of a person's memories pertaining to Brain Burst and the Accelerated World. Due to the nature of Brain Burst, the installation may fail if certain conditions are not met. In order to successfully install and use Brain Burst, a prospective user must have a Neuro-Linker installed at birth and must be able to handle heightened brain activity. Users of Brain Burst are known as "Burst Linkers". The reason why the program was created and by whom, is still a mystery.

Neuro-Linker
A device that uses neuro-synchronization to enable a person full access to their five senses within a virtual world. The user interface is gesture controlled augmented reality or voice control (see to the commands below) which enables users access to apps for phone, time and date, chatting, social networking, email, note taking, as well as a range of other devices. The two main network connection types of the Neuro-Linker are the Local Network and Global Network. The Local Network is the most common network connection type. It is typically where users access the network at schools, hospitals or other network hotspots to communicate. With the Local Network it is also possible to invite friends for chatting and spending time together within various Virtual Worlds. See the standard command Direct Link below for more information. The Global Network, as the name states, connects users on a worldwide scale. For Brain Burst, connecting to the Global Network is usually advised only for experienced users, since if a low-level Burst Linker connects, it is likely that they will be targeted by more experienced Linkers. Other features of the Neuro Linker allow people to communicate via thought with each other, either wirelessly or directly via a physical cable. The latter of which, also known as "cabling" is considered a social taboo and usually reserved for close acquaintances.

Direct Link
The standard command anyone with a Neuro-Linker can use to enter a local network's non-accelerated virtual world. From there, a user can meet up with friends, play games, and run simulations. When users enters this virtual world, they get in their unique "avatar". For example, Haruyuki's avatar is a small cute pig. The avatar/costume hides their real appearance, so that only their closest friends knows who they really are in the real world. This is done due to reasons like privacy, and the users feel more comfortable and safer when they are hidden in their avatars.

Wired Connection
Two or more people physically connecting their Neuro-Linkers via a length of cable, giving each other access to their personal files, emotions, thoughts and memories. This action is considered a social taboo if done in public places, only reserved for those with a certain level of intimacy with each other.

Burst Linker
A name given to players in Brain Burst. To become a Burst Linker, an individual must have a Neuro-Linker installed since birth and successfully install the Brain Burst software on it. Upon successful installation, the player is given 100 burst points to start with, and an avatar with its appearance and abilities being determined by their mental scars. A Burst Linker starts on level 1 and can increase their level by expending burst points obtained from other players or by defeating monsters in the Unlimited Field. A Level 9 player can only reach Level 10 by defeating 5 other Level 9 players in combat. When two or more Level 9 players fight, the losers of the fight will lose all their Burst Points. There is much speculation about what would happen if a player eventually manages to do so. The speculations and curiousity has made many Burst Linkers urgent to reach Level 10. However, so far no player has ever reached Level 10.

Burst Point
These are points necessary to use the Brain Burst acceleration commands. After the successful installation of Brain Burst, the player is granted 100 points. Every win against an equally-leveled opponent grants 10 points, while every loss takes 10 points. The higher the level of the defeated opponent, more points are earned. The only exception is during a duel between level 9 players, where the winner takes all of the loser's points. The only ways to earn Burst Points are to win duels with other Burst Linkers or fight "enemies" in the Unlimited Field. Burst Points can also be expended to obtain special items at the "Shop" or advance to the next level. If a player loses all of his/her points, Brain Burst is forcefully and permanently uninstalled, also clearing and erasing all memories related to the Accelerated World.

Burst Link
This is the normal acceleration command. It can be used immediately after Brain Burst's installation. It consumes one Burst Point and allows a person's brainwaves to be accelerated by a factor of 1000. It lasts for a maximum of 1.8 seconds in the real world, equaling 1800 seconds (or 30 minutes) of acceleration. It can be stopped prematurely with the "Burst Out" command. When accelerated, the user's network avatar is ejected from the body and able to access Brain Burst's settings. Objects in the real world, including the Burst Linker's body, can not be moved while accelerated, though it is possible to challenge other Burst Linkers to a duel or check the matching list of nearby online users.

Unlimited Burst
This is the command to enter the Unlimited Field, only available to players whose level is 4 or higher. It consumes 10 Burst Points to accelerate at the same rate of a normal Burst Link to the Unlimited Field discussed below.

Unlimited Field
Also known as the Unlimited Neutral Field, this is the environment a Burst Linker enters upon using the Unlimited Burst command. While here, a Burst Linker is not forced to fight a single opponent under a time limit, but is essentially free to fight whoever and whenever they please. Though free to choose fights, Burst Linkers who do participate will feel double the pain when they receive damage. The Unlimited Field is also inhabited by powerful NPC monsters known only as "Enemies." Unlike normal stages, the Unlimited Field stretches on infinitely. The environment changes after a set time, cycling between several different locations. Burst Linkers are unable to leave under normal means such as being defeated in battle (they will simply re-spawn after one hour) or using the Burst Out command. Instead, they must find Leap Points scattered throughout the environment to log out. According to Haruyuki, if one were to theoretically spend a full day accelerated in the real world, it would equal almost three years in the Unlimited Field. While accelerated in the Unlimited Field, a Burst Linker's body would remain asleep in the real world.

Physical Burst
This command allows a Burst Linker to accelerate their mind by a factor 10 for 3 seconds in the real world, equaling 30 seconds of acceleration. It consumes 5 Burst Points.

Physical Full Burst
This command allows one to accelerate their mind and body by a factor of 100 and is only available to level 9 Burst Linkers. It consumes 99% of the player's current Burst Points. This command also causes extreme physical damage to the user. It also enables the Burst Linker to move his/her body over short distances and is useful to avoid dangerous situations.

Enhanced Armament
Equipment and weapons that can be obtained and used in Brain Burst duels. There are four ways of obtaining one: having one as part of beginner equipment, earning them through level-up bonuses, using Burst Points to buy them in the "Shop," and taking them from other players (either through Direct Linking and trading or defeating an opponent). The most notorious Enhanced Armaments are known as the Seven Arcs, each one representing a star of the Big Dipper. Some of these are possessed by Kings of Pure Color.

Judgement Blow
A skill given to Legion Masters, it allows them to forcefully uninstall Brain Burst from a member of their legion. It can only be used at close range.
Incarnate System
A technique that allows a Burst Linker to attain special abilities beyond their avatar's base capabilities by slightly bending the properties of the accelerated world's programming environment to his/her will through mental conditioning. It is a special feature known only by a few Burst Linkers (including the Legion Masters). Incarnate abilities can be deployed at any time regardless of the special move gauge, and are divided into four categories: ranged attacks, melee attacks, increased speed, and enhanced defense. The types of incarnate abilities a Burst Linker can obtain depend on the properties of his/her avatar, which are determined by the mental scars a Burst Linker possesses. The technique is kept a secret between Legion Masters because it can eventually cause the Linker to lose its sense of self, and eventually leads to the birth of Chrome Disasters.

Brain Implant Chip
An illegal device implanted directly into the brain that allows the user network connectivity without a Neuro-Linker. It was outlawed three years after its implementation when it was discovered that it the risk of brain hacking possible and also that students began using the device as a means to cheat in exams or in sports. A Burst Linker using the device can mask himself from the matching list by using a Neuro-Linker just as they are about to challenge another Linker. if Brain Burst is forcefully uninstalled, the chip dissolves without a trace. The Chip was an intermediate in development for full diving, between the "Nerve Gear", a diving helmet used years before featured in Sword Art Online, and the currently used Neuro Linkers.

Originators
They are known to be the first generation Burst Linkers who do not have Parents and obtained Brain Burst directly from its creator. Some of the kings are Originators. Yuniko Kōzuki (Scarlet Rain) considers them to be "real monsters".
NerveGear
The predecessor of the Neuro-Linker and one of the first devices created that enabled a true Virtual Reality experience via Full Dives.

Social Camera
Any one of the plethora of cameras that are mounted throughout the "real world". Input from these cameras is used by the Brain Burst program for the Accelerated World to create the 3D environment in which the game takes place.

Enjoy the RP!
