So I just finished re-watching the Rebuild movies with a friend and it made me realize that I haven't heard anything about AdEva for a long time. Is v3 still in playtesting?AdDva thread.
>>25940768>you are now imagining Mari in Ninamori's USSR shirtI can't be the only one who noticed that they look similar. Especially the glasses.
im not sure if i hate the rebuild movies
>>25941191First two are fine, third is shit, I have no idea what 4 will be like.
What if the casts of NGE and PMMM switched shows?
>>25941569Kyouko and Mami have to do all the fucking work while Sayaka trips over her own feet. Madoka is even more worthless, while Homura does AT Field neutralization.Shinji stays useless while Rei and Asuka kill all the witches.
>>25941680>Shinji stays useless while Rei and Asuka kill all the witches.>you are now aware that in canon Shinji has more confirmed Angel kills than either Rei or Asuka
>>25940768Yep, it's coming along slowly but surely. No definite release date yet but it's shaping up very well so far.
>>25941866Aren't most of those while Berserk though?
>>25942128Pretty much. It's less Shinji being good at his job and more that his eva's prone to RIP AND TEAR even when he's curled up and has no idea what he's doing.
>>25941866wellone of them was the dummy plug
>>259418663rd: berserker, credit goes to Unit 01/Yui4th: legit5th: legit but could easily have swapped Unit 00 and 01 roles6th: dual credit w/ Asuka7th: see above8th: Asuka killed it9th: as above10th: as above11th: RITSUKO MOTHERFUCKING AKAGI12th: legit I guess13th: dummy plug14th: I'll give him this one; he was stomping Big Z's shit in until he ran out of power, berserker just finished it off15th: Rei16th: as above17th: does it count if he wanted to die? I don't think so.Final tally: Shinji 6, Asuka 5, Rei 2 (3 if you give dual credit for Ramiel), Yui 1 (2 if you dc Zeruel), Akagi 1, dummyplug 1.tl;dr: Shinji has more kills but only because Asuka and Yui carried him there.
>>25942324>tfw a trio of teenagersnwith intense psychological trauma work better together than any tabletop RPG party
>>25942128>>25942275Only ones while Berserking were Sachiel, Leliel, and Zeruel. And Bardiel was the Dummy Plug.>>25942324>9th: as aboveNot accurate. Asuka tanked the acid goop shit for Shinji, who landed the killing shot on Matarael, with a Pallet Rifle tossed to him by Rei. Team effort, team credit.
>>25942600>with a Pallet RifleChrist Matarael was a little bitch. Seriously, it died to a fucking PALLET RIFLE. The ONLY kill by Pallet Riffle in the entire series.
>>25942600Yeah but it was Asuka's plan.
>>25942696Again, team effort team credit. That's actually MORE generous than how Confirmed Kills work IRL, where Shinji would get the kill marker and the other two would get an "attaboy" at best.
>>25942620Well it is a bullpup.
>>25942696If you are gonna give credit to the ine who makes plans almost every angel kill should go to Misato
>>25942801To be fair to the L85, the A2 models actually kick ass unless you're a southpaw in which case you're ten kinds of fucked.The real mercy we should give the Pallet Rifle is this: "The pallet gun? Oh lord, not another reporter asking about that travesty. Look, no one had ever designed something that large to be moved before. To fire at anything other than single shot? Never. To be accurate in the hands of someone 40 meters tall? Does this line of questioning answer your question?I admit, the thing is and was pathetic, perhaps the single worst part is that we can’t get rid of them, its listed in the production procedures that 'all Evangelions are to be issued a Mark 2 progressive Knife, and a Pallet Rifle at the time of production.' Now the progressive Knife, there’s a solid piece of work, designed by some no name corporation that made Box cutters. Can you believe that? Box cutters. Even has a built in second blade in the event the first oneshatters.">>25942859Well, it would be her fifteen years of fucking payback.
>>25942917Hey hey hey, a properly built sniper-build Skirmisher can make a Pallet Rifle pretty decent early on, until they've got the research to get something less horrible.
>>25942962My AT Tech put 18 wounds on a Core in a single round with one on an occasion.But that was an aberration.
I want to play AdEva but the ruleset is a fucking travesty
>>25942859Oh god let me tell you about Misato's incompetence.Sachiel: she couldn't do shit about that.Shamshel: she sent Shinji in without doing ANYTHING to determine the target's capabilities, and he nearly got slice'n'diced by hentai tentacle monster.Ramiel: SAME SHIT, this time he nearly got COOKED by giant laser.Gaghiel: The Asuka Show. Misato did nothing but authorise deployment (which at that point had already happened anyway).Israfel: The Asuka Show Episode Two: Bloopers Edition. KAJI came up with the plan.Sandalphon:>There's an embryonic angel inside an active volcano! How do we kill and/or capture it?>LET'S DROP OUR MOST COMBAT-CAPABLE EVA AND MOST HIGHLY TRAINED PILOT INTO THE VOLCANO ON A TINY LITTLE CABLE! WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?How this plan got approved in the first place I'll never know. I would have drilled into the magma vents below and pumped in shittons of liquid nitrogen, then excavated the fucker.Matariel: The Asuka Show Episode 3: Asuka Strikes BackSahaquiel:>THIS IS THE ONLY PLAN THAT COULD POSSIBLY WORK EVER AND IT RELIES ON SHINJI BREAKING REALITY>GOOD LUCKIruel:>oh god how did this get here i am not good with computerLeliel: once again, engaging a target with insufficient information.

ALSO, POKING IT WITH A KNIFE IS NOT HOW YOU PROBE ITS ABILITIES. YOU HAVE STATIC DEFENSES, USE THEM.Tabris:>I don't even know this kid
>>25943304While many of your criticisms are somewhat valid,>I would have drilled into the magma vents below and pumped in shittons of liquid nitrogen, then excavated the fucker.And caused a geological DISASTER. You don't fuck with a live volcano.
Hey guys rate my Eva PC.Her name is Reiko Cinq, she a half-Angel, half -Demon, half-Human virgin futanari girl. She hates NERV but works with it because the woman she loves is a scientist there. Her Evangelion is a super prototype that can fly inspace, doesn't use a power cord and has dual beam sabres. She is half-Demon because her Human base was actually a Demon which are mutant versions of the Angels.She is trained in bushido and ninjitsu and carries a custom master-made katana.
>>25943304>I don't even know this kidFuck you, that made me spill my drink.
>>25943372It seems like a well rounded and well developed character that meshes perfectly with the background material. Good job A+
>>25943195I'm literally just waiting for v3 to come out.
>>25943501Keep on dreaming if you think it'll be that much better than the rest. Chances are it'll be just as broken as 2.5, just in different ways.
>>25943195>>25943501Same boat.I want to run an AdEva game and take a break from DnD, but I can't be assed to learn a entire ruleset ontop of a ruleset.
>>25942386>tfw a trio of teenagers with intense psychological trauma is the perfect description of any tabletop RPG party
>>25943519Eva really doesn't strike me as well-suited to being crunchy. Every fight is just pulling increasingly mad bullshit until you somehow win.
>>25943372I'm too used to that picture having a giant cock.2/10 but only on the assumption that you'll take the +10 and +20 in Bushido asap. Also show me your Honour Bonus, it better be at least 4 for a Bushido build.
>>25943593It could be done? But it definitely is a ton of work to do it well. And after 2.5 and all the shit that entailed, it isn't easy to have any faith in the devs.
>>25943304>and pumped in shittons of liquid nitrogenAnd that's the point where the engineering department decides to lock you in a cupboard somewhere while they sort shit out. With liquid nitrogen, you'll take away a little bit of heat to boil it, and then you're left with a gas, which won't do you any further good really. Yeah,it's cold gas, but the heat capacity per volume is bound to the density, which for any gas is negligible. Or you could try water. Easier to work with, much easier to get hold of in the truly preposterous quantities necessary, it'll eat up a bit of energy heating up to the boiling point, and then as it boils it'll eat something like fifteen times the energy per volume (your pumps will be moving volume/time, so per volume is what we care about) that nitrogen did.You only bother whit liquid nitrogen if you need something s cold as the boiling temp of nitrogen. If you want to solidify magma, anything but water is just plain retarded.Still, I hope that angel's happy to wait for a year or two while you pull off your little plan.>POKING IT WITH A KNIFE IS NOT HOW YOU PROBE ITS ABILITIES. YOU HAVE STATIC DEFENSES, USE THEM.Not that they ever actually did anything more than show us that, yes, this angel too could do that cruciform explosion thing.
>>25943850>Not that they ever actually did anything more than show us that, yes, this angel too could do that cruciform explosion thing.I don't even know why I'm laughing, but I am.
>>25943850Seriously. He's getting butthurt that the operations director didn't do 'proper research into the capabilities' of eldritch nightmare beasts that nobody had ever seen before. And each individual Angel was so different from the next that what worked on one won't necessarily work on the next.
>>25943944Poke it in the red with a knife seemed pretty reliable.
>>25944000Getting to the red was another story.
>>25943519Probably, but I won't need to learn anything from DH to play it.
>>25944191Just poke things 'til you find it.
>>25942620 The Pallet rifle is like the Worf of NGE, except that would be the UN Forces and JSSDF.
>>25941541I really loved the third one after I suspended my disbelief a little.But maybe that's just because I know tfw no qt3.14 bf ;_;
>>25944491>Best scene in movie is a piano duet with homosexual undertones>I watched 3.0 right after Sakamichi no ApollonIt's like life just set me up for disappointment.
>>25943530Afaik, they're going to finally make v3 and edition that doesn't require DH core to play.
>>25941541I really don't get the hate for 3. The pacing is... odd, and I think it would have worked better had it and Final been released in conjunction as originally planned, but it doesn't really ruin it for me. The only thing that actually angers me is the continued lack of screentime for Big Bossuka. There had BETTER be plenty of screentime for her in Final.
>>25944832The pacing is off for me, the "curse of Eva" is really stupid, Wunder strikes me as incredibly clashing with the rest of the series for some reason, and Shinji goes full retard. Plus Gendo's new design is hideous.It also doesn't have enough good fights for me, which is a stupid complaint but I don't care.
>>25944240I already knew Dark heresy, which is the only reason I ever picked Ad Eva up. I will be abandoning the game when it abandons DH. Say what you will about the system, but at least it was designed by actual game designers and not random chucklefucks on the internet. Every flaw Ad Eva has can be directly traced to the idiots who tacked shit onto a perfectly good system.
>>25944832>I don't get why people hate this movie>It's bad, but I don't care>My only complaint is lack of screentime for my waifuCry more, asukafag. 3 was shit as a narrative.
>>25944832I feel like I would be far more okay with it if there hadn't been a random decade long time skip that they explain nothing about.Also the pile of new characters who were only there to say 'ready' in various ways was obnoxious.Unless they come out with a midquel at some point the entire thing just seems superfluous.
>>25944665Yeah.What I'm waiting on. I pretty much already have everything else more-or-less sorted out.
>>25945180Pretty much. The movie is too.. different. It gives no real context for shit, and is ultimately kinda boring.
>>25945281>bridge crew of the Wunder is meaningless and unnamed>Touji's sister exists to deliver one line >change fuckng everything to bring in a new cast>movie proceeds to be about Shinni, Rei, and KaworuWhat's the fucking point of it all? 3.33 did nothing other than introduce a stupid timeskip and make Shinji look actually retarded.
>>25945400To pander to the fujoshi crowd.Stacked balls, the movie. 3.33
>>25945400>Kaworu, the guy who actually knows what the fuck is going on, tells Shinji not to grab the spears>BUT WHY KAWORU>grabs the fucking spears anyway>Fourth Impact>the only person who has been kind to Shinji now has to fucking kill himself to stop this chucklefuck from causing his second apocalypse3.33 made me hate Shinji.
3.0's new cast exists just to provide more characters and evangelions for use in merchandising, it was awful.
>>25945400>What's the fucking point of it all?Lots and lots of setup. Keep in mind that 3.33 and Final were originally planned to be a simultaneous release, which would have basically made them one long-as-fuck movie.
>>25945457Rebuild just reeks of merchandising cash-in.
>>25945188 I wonder if v3 or vBorderline 1.2 will be based (admitting it or not) on DH 2.0 mechanics used in BC and OW.
>>25945446>not hating him already
>>25945555vB can't even get AngelGen done because they wont take it away from the guy who doesnt work on itso i doubt they'll change thatCould see them using stuff from it in v3 though
>>25945446>not hating shinji since ep 1 of tv releaseanta_full_baka,jpgThere have been exactly two instances where Shinji was anything other than a spineless little shit: kicking Zeruel's ass, and kicking Zeruel's ass.
>>25945619>jumping into lava to save someone who he thinks dislikes him
>>25945619>not wanting the coolest angel to win
>>25945400I thought they had names.
>>25945606It's unlikely, since BMJ has such a boner for MUH SYSTEM.And yeah, vB has been making abysmal progress since, what, 2010, 2011? And some of the stuff made for 1.2 they have worked on is kind of meh. Bad way of going about fixing things.
>>25945619Actually he (and everyone else) shows a continual upswing in mental health and confidence through the early series.And then Leliel happens and everything goes to shit, and faster with each angel that arrives.
My favourite part of adeva is everyone playing what it'd be like if there was no crippling lame main character to hold things back.My least favourite part is when the other players don't actually know the rules of angel combat beyond the straight DH rules.
>>25945919It's nice when people don't play crippled, lame characters. I'm sick to death of seeing stoic teenage hardened veterans, though.
Best angel coming through.
just gonna leave this here
>>25945970>man the the fuck up
>>25945970Wheres the Brightslap version.
>>25945985>filenameAnd now I'm imagining Takeshi Tatsumi as Operations Director. And I don't know how to feel about it.>>25946032It's in Super Robot Wars. Yes, really.
>>25945960Oh yeah, having a crazy and/or cripple or two is good fun but since there's no main character it doesn't drag the whole game down. Tough guys are made for angels to reach out and touch them and tragedies piled on tragedies, after all the fall is only really interesting when they had somewhere to fall from.
>>25945960See, the point is to make a character BETWEEN the extremes: Not so stoic as to be boring as fuck, but such a fucking wimp that they have all of two moments of being remotely cool in a campaign.That's before factoring in mind rape, though. If mind rape turns you into an emotional wreck, not much you can do about it but shrinks, drugs and being useless for a while.Short version: Leave room to grow, but don't start at rock fucking bottom.
>>25945970Shouldn't that be "LET ME SEE YOU GRIT THOSE TEETH"?
>>25945619What about when he accidentally caused the apocalypse by saving Rei?
>>25946484Same event, mate.
>>25946503Oh...Right.Well then, on that note; I remember seeing an image poking fun at Gurren Lagann and something about sketchy using caps from that moment. Anyone have it and willing to share?
>>25944832You dont get the hate for 3?I mean the first 2 pretty much followed the series and 3 went in a COMPLETELY differant direction.Not saying thats whats made it bad but if it was AMAZING and changed as much as they did it would still get hate
>>25945775I doubt they will draw too much from the other 40k RPGs. Maybe some mechanics inspired by them or something, but what we have heard so far about V3 has been really different from what we have now. I would honestly be surprised if the newer FFG material was even still compatible.
>>25945970And Shinji manned up.And then Gurren combined with Eva 01.
>>25951695I've seen people talk about it and apparently it's alright, nothing too tricky or weird. Hopefully we won't have to wait till christmas, especially since people are going to look for mecha vs giant monster games with that Pacific Rim out and all.
>>25951777...I suspect this would end the world, but it's too awesome to be upset about.
I'll just leave this here for everyone who whines on Shinji being an angsty whiner.
>>25951835It probably is the Spiral Nemesis.
>>25944644>Sakamichi no ApollonGood fucking man. Great series.And the complete opposite of EVA in that the MC is absolutely retarded at the very end.
>>25951878>>25951893I'm fine with Shinji. Really, I understand he'd have been a lot better off in a different show, which is why Super Robot Wars is truly awesome... But I can't forgive him for wanking to ASUKA IN A FUCKING COMA. He realized how fucking horrible he was after the fact, sure, but still.Remove THAT from canon and you've basically got a kid stuck in an H.P. Lovecraft story, which makes it pretty amazing that he stayed in an emotionally functional state so long.
Funnily enough I was involved in a One Shot that used Only War Rules instead of Dark Heresy Rules.It was basically Eva meets PacRim.anybody want a storytime?
>>25952165You are on /tg/. Everyone wants storytime.
>>25952204Okay lets set up the background.The Reason Only War was used was so that we could facilitate Dual Pilot system via NPC co pilots that gave us stat boosts.Anyway aside from that basic premise is the same as PacRim, but with "Angels" coming from the stars too.So what you wind up with is the UN funding 2 programs, one for Evas, one for Jaegers. Lack of predictable enemies mean that Wall Program is fucked so you have no shortage of Evas and Jaegers.Primarly difference here is that Evas don't have the whole "It needs a dead person's soul" to work thing going on, just a Link between the Brain of the Pilot running it and good Synergy between the human mind and Eva mind.Oh and the Angels started out using christian Mythology for their imagery at first and then branched out into Muslim and Hebrew mythology and started picking up other myth forms as they went along, apparently they're led by telepathic beings who don't have much in the way of imagination and they use the myths of whatever populace they're trying to conquer to determine their combat forms.With that out of the way I'll describe the PCs we had.
>>25952303>they use the myths of whatever populace they're trying to conquer to determine their combat forms.Hey, if you want to wage psychological warfare, nothing is quite as efficient as using a weapon that looks like the target's god. If nothing else, the target may hesitate.
So first off we had an Operations Director, this chick was a Russian with 10 years of Experience as in the General Infantry (worked her way up from the ranks and became an officer) and 10 more years as a commander during the Kaiju War (or Angel War if you're in the Eva Program) Her name is Natasha Solokov, tall, blond, likes business suits and firearms. Her main role in battle was to talk us through stuff and send support in the form of artillery fire, Gunships, Airstrikes, and the occasional drop of auxilliary weapons.Then we had Charlotte Braun, German chick, lost her parents in an Angel rampage that destroyed 3/4ths of Berlin. Short, tough, gruff, and a little crazy. didn't have a copilot. Used an Eva modeled on a Knight. Had a shield, tended to use a rifle with a bayonet as her main weapon and kept a pistol in each of her pylons. This bitch LOVED shields.Finally we got Zacharius Stone, American, Lost most of his family in a Kaiju Rampage in San Fran early in the Kaiju War. He was originally paired up with a British RAF Pilot called Jonathan Black but his co Pilot was KIA during an Action to defend Japan against a combination Angel and Kaiju raid. Black forced Stone into the Jaeger's only functional escape pod and Black drowned when the Con Pod filled with water. He was out of action for the better part of a year due to Psych Eval and then paired up with Chie Okada, a pilot transferred over from the Angel Program. Young, arrogant, talented. She hated Angels and Kaiju both and pretty much lived to kill the things. It was hoped that Stone's worldly experience would temper her negative personality traits. Oh and they piolted Leo Shining Stone's Refurbished MK2 Jaeger. It used Laser weapons mounted in the shoulders, helmet, and gauntlets and could slide its gauntlets forward and use the Lion Jaws mounted on them to grip and spin the things to maim and tear off enemy flesh.I'll get to the story proper now.
>>25952367Honestly, playing into folklore like that would actually probably be a really great way to waste their resources by playing on their expectations.> release some monster that looks like a werewolf into their city> everyone freaks> anyone bitten by it is killed by a panicked mob/kept under heavy army quarantine> army, knowing how this ends, stocks up on silver bullets...> silver bullets don't do shit. It only LOOKS like a werewolf. They are not actually any more effective, but you just wasted time and money procuring them anyway.Not sure what the Evangelion equivalent of that would be, though.
>>25952433We do have rules for angelspawn, y'know. But even then, bear in mind that Iruel was a tiny, tiny angel by any standard. An angel the size of a werewolf might prove interesting for combat, and might be useful in a modified version of "Horror in the eighth dimension" from [REDACTED]. Can you imagine the fun of having an indescribable horror stalk the pilots through NERV?
>>25952412In case you're not familiar with Jaegers I'll go over the piloting procedure. Basically pilots are linked, each pilot controls one hemisphere of the mech, much like the two hemispheres of the brain controlling one side of the body each. When linked they form a gestalt mind, they're still individuals but throughts and emotions Drift from on pilot to another. This effect is, amusingly enough, called The Drift.As such Pilots must be compatable, the stronger their bond the better they pilot the mech. Thus all Jaeger pilots must undergo intense Psychological Evaluation and pair up with another pilot, skill is important, but not as important as compatability.Anyway, our main base was set up in the Toxic Ruins of Tokyo, which was destroyed by the Kaiju Onibaba early in K-War. This was considered very unusual, it was set up by one of the directors of the E-Program, in fact Solokov and Stone were briefed by one of the J-Program marshalls before they were sent over to Japan.See the UN was starting to get suspicious of the A-Program. Telepathy was a proven fact thanks to the J-Program, long term Jaeger Pilots could share dreams with their partner and even tell if their partner was in danger, so the Myth forms of the "Angels" were no great surprise.But the people in charge of the A-Program seemed particularly adverse to allowing their Eva Pilots to undergo Psych Evaluation and they actively resisted UN Oversight at every turn. Now Evas are powerful fighters, and the world needs them as much as it needs the Jaegers, thus why the E-Program got its funding.But it seems the people in charge of the E-Program are out of control. So Solokove and Stone are sort of deep cover agents sent as part of a project to see just what the hell is going on in the ruins of Tokyo.
>>25952515So anyway we get down to tokyo, and yeah its in ruins. The whole city is either smashed to hell or rendered toxic by Kaiju Blue. The place was hit by an Angel Attack almost month after the Kaiju rendered the place unihabitable for normal humans so its pretty much considered cursed by the average Japanese person.so Solokov is Stone's nominal commanding officer, he considers her decisions to override any orders given to him by E-Program personel, especially since she's been bumped up to the rank of Marshal for this endeavour.So on the flight over to Tokyo's "Steadfast Fortress" Marshal Solokov gives Ranger Stone a comm bead so she can contact him in the future if she has to. It looks like one of those bluetooth earpod thingies, apparently those are popular in the future.So they get to the base and are greeted by Goemon Wantanabe, this guy is in charge of the A-Program the entire thing and he introduces Ranger Stone to Chie Okada, she's apparently been pretty eager to meet her new partner and is somewhat disappointed. Stone is in his early 30s, his hair is starting to grey from a combination of poor genes and stress, and he's an insomniac. He doesn't look like much. Whereas Chie is in her early 20s, graduated the top of her class and was heading towards piloting an Eva Prototype before Director Wantanabe selected her to be Stone's partner.So Marshal Solokov greets Director Wantanabe, he's kind of cold and its pretty clear he doesn't appreciate having J-Program types here. But it was either Solokov and Stone or a UN Investigative team so he took the Marshall and the Ranger and gave the Ranger one of his Pilots.From there he gave us a tour of his facilities, the Control Room, the Eva Hangar (which was being modified so it could better service Leo Shining) and of course the Crew Quarters where Stone and Solokov would live.
>>25952680So it turns out Stone and Okada are housed in the same unit. (A couple of rooms and some bathing facilities, meals are taken in the Mess.) Which means they're going to spending a lot of time together. Chie likes J-Pop, Zacharius likes Johnny Cash, aside from dead relatives and a universal hatred of Angels and Kaiju they don't have much in common.Solokov meanwhile gets a set of quarters to herself. She pretty much takes it for granted that her room is bugged. Furthermore she and Stone are literally surrounded by A-Project personel, if she wants to get answers on what the A-Project is keeping secret she's going to have to be sneaky.So before either Stone or Solokov can do much of anything an Alarm starts blaring through the base. Apparently an Angel has hit the ocean a couple hundred miles off of Osaka (They usually use space rocks as a vehicle and then impact the Earth, specifically the ocean since there's so much of it.) Okada is raring to go but Solokov and Stone have reservations, usually pilots at least go through simulations before they enter The Drift together.Wantanabe doesn't want to hear it. If Stone isn't a coward he'll get in his mech and fight. Solokov's about ready to deck the guy but Stone makes it clear that he's fine with fighting, and reminds that Solokov needs to stay calm if they want their mission to succeed.So Ranger Stone and Lieutenant Okada go down to the Eva Hangar Stone dons the Armor of Heroes (his Jaeger Piloting suit) and Okada puts on a modified Plug Suit. They enter the drift and Leo Shining is deployed into the field.The Jaeger is picked up by some Cargo Helicopters and lifted to the Combat sight, unusually enough it seems that the Tokyo Base didn't have any Evas prepped and ready for use. Only the E-Program Pilots and Directors could tell you if this is normal though.
Dammit, I thought I was original when I got the idea to do a Pacrim Ad Eva game.Well at least yours was just a one shot; mine will be a full game.
>>25952853So under ideal circumstances a pair of linked pilots wouldn't have to roll or anything.But this is AdEva, losing your goddamn mind is half the fun right? So the GM makes Stone roll for Drift Visions. Apparently Lieutanant Okada has her share of daddy issues, apparently she feels that if she just excells her father will recognize her as being as strong and useful as her brothers. Meanwhile Okada gets treated to a flashback of Ranger Stone watching his mentor cram him into an escape pod before launching them.Yeah they take Sanity Damage, and Director Wantanabe manages to lose his status as "Surrogate Father Figure" to Ranger Stone as the guy does his best to help Lieutenant Okada reach a fight ready state of mind before their deployed in the Angel Combat Zone.Marshal Solokov sets up in the command center. Director Wantanabe does NOT like this but there's not much he can do to expel a 40 year old Ex-Spetnaz from his command room so he just sits in his command chair and pretends he isn't pouting while Solokov asks his personel questions about E-Program Protocol.Anyway Leo Shining finally gets deployed and winds up on the ocean floor, its cool she was designed for that. So the jaeger closes the distance and finds an enormous rock with thousands of black legs jutting from it on the sea floor, and its being engaged by an Eva that's using its shield as a diving scooter.Apparently sthe shield can mount her rifle, which fires torpedoes, not bullets, and it uses water jets as its form of propulsion.Obviously this is Lieutenant Braun and her Eva Unit-047
>>25945960>I'm sick to death of seeing stoic teenage hardened veterans, though.There's on for each game and it's always a stoic, hardcore edgy millitary NS.
>>25953006So Unit-047 seems to have things pretty well in hand, she's blown off a few of the Angel's legs and aside from lunging it doesn't seem to be doing much of anything worthwhile in the attacks department.Then the rock bursts open with explosive force and Eva-047 is sent tumbling. Apparently Braun goofed on her toughness saves because her pilot is rendered unconcious for a few rounds. Which leaves us to deal with the Angel.It's a around 500 feet long, has a body like a snake, only its body has all these tiny millipede like legs jutting from either side. Where a head would be its got a humanoid torso with a pair of arms, and a head which is basically its core underneath a complicated looking headress that serves as armor for the core.So the Angel is about to turn on Eva-047 when Leo Shining hits its hind end with a volley of laser fire. This gets blocked by its AT field but then Okada reveals that two humans working in tandem can overcome an AT field if the focus hard enough. It'd be easier if we had the proper equipment but if we try hard enough we can use The Drift to overcome the Angel's AT field by Generating our own AT Field.Basically we roll to attack and overcome the Angel's AT Field, if we fail badly enough we take San Damage.So the Angel takes a few successful laser strikes before it gets sick of them and tries to strangle Leo Shining to death with its bulk. This proves to be monumentally stupid as it just puts the majority of its body within striking range and Jaeger's are MUCH tougher than Evas.
>>25952165Yes. I want story time. Now.
>>25953061>stoic, hardcore edgy millitary NS.>not being an NS based on Akihiko
>>25953127Would still have more personallity than those edgy stoic NS.
>>25953063Leo Shining rolls to overcome the Naga Angel's AT field, she crits it and manages to strike the Naga Angel's core from afar with a Con-Pod Laser strike (basically EYE BEAMS) destroying the head dress and damaging the core.This causes the Angel to uncoil on reflex and Leo Shining deploys its vice gauntlets and sinks them into the Naga's body. It begins climbing up its body, blasting off leg-arms as it goes.By this time Unit 047's pilot has woken up and she gets back into the fight by finding her shield and using it to ride up to the Angel's head, it can't pay attention to both the Eva and the Jaeger and that costs it, big time. Unit 047 leaps from its diving sooter shield onto the Angel's head, draws a pistol and shoots it a couple dozen times in the core at point blank range. The Angel dies and both Osaka Base and Tokyo base go wild.This of course means that Leo Shining and Unit 047 need pick up. Wantanabe wants Leo Shining to wait on the sea floor for around 6 hours so he can get an A-Project ship he trusts to pick them up.Solokov tells him to get stuffed, she wants to know how Unit 047 was deployed and how its going to be picked up.Apparently there's a modified aircraft carrier nearby and it can service no less than 3 Evas at a time and it should be able to carry a Jaeger in a pinch.Needless to say Stone and Okada are more than happy to share hangar bay with Unit 047 if it means they won't be trapped on the sea floor for 6 or so hours.
>>25953142These and the fucking blankstare manus are the worst.
>>25952303>The Reason Only War was used was so that we could facilitate Dual Pilot system via NPC co pilots that gave us stat boosts.Anon, I want the rules on this. Please, I'm begging you; put it on pastebin, put it on google doc I dunno but I really want to see how it worked. If you would be so kind as to show us. I think there's a game to be developped here.
>>25953168I disagree.Blankstare manus can be played for laughs. Stoic NS can as well (see Full Metal Panic).The worst character archetype is feral berserkers.You know. That guy who makes an Eva to eats everything it can get its claws on, and for some reason this means that the pilot is a feral wildchild in desperate need of some antipsychotics. They never cause anything but trouble, and not even in a terribly interesting way or something setting appropriate.NS and Manu, for all of their faults, at least have a basis in AdEva's basic setting. Feral Kids are something totally bullshit that everyone seems to pull out of their ass at the same time, without any actual explanation for how it got up in there.
>>25953152So Unit 047 rides its shield up to the surface and is retrieved by the aircraft carrier that brought it out here. Then shield makes its way down to the sea floor.Leo Shining is bigger and heavier than an Eva but the shield is able to handle it. (If only barely.) Again, the equipment on the ship strains to haul Leo Shining into the Hangar Bay, but manages it.From here Stone and Okada are able to disembark and meet Lieutenant Braun, tall, kinda gaunt, friendly woman. Braun suggests they have some coffee after they've stripped out of their plug suits (or armor in the Ranger's case) Stone notes that spare clothes are not in a Jager's standard equipment.So Braun flags down one of the techs, has some spare sailor uniforms brought in and after Stone and Okada strip out of thier piloting suits they meet up in the mess with Braun for some polite conversation and general commiseration.Marshal Solokov meanwhile has to deal with a furious Director Wantanabe. He does not like having his decisions questions by an outsider, even if his rank is roughly the same as Solokov's. The base personel seem extremely uncomfortable around both Solokov and Wantanabe and their screaming arguement isn't making things any better.The man stops just short of throwing her out of his base into the polluted wasteland of Tokyo but eventually storms off, and Solokov follows in a stealthy manner. But she can't follow him all the way. You see he makes his way down to a resitricted portion of the base. He never hinted this place existed and its guarded by more than a few men who are unquestionably loyal to the Director.
>>25953267>Blankstare manus can be played for laughs. Stoic NS can as well (see Full Metal Panic).Except they are played with a completely straight faced.
>>25953267Good point, though the ferals can be played for fun too. All three can be played well enough, I suppose, but they tend to be the dullest fucking thing ever. Hard to tell which is worse, the one that could feasibly not even be in the game that's how dull they are, or the one that is nothing but trouble.
>>25953267I was lucky, in our previous game. Our berserker, a Neo-Spartan, was the most normal member of the cast.The Manu Pointman was cripplingly timid and borderline autistic, and the NS Skirmisher was a training-obsessed, ego-driven and deliciously incompetent asshole.And the Prodigy AT Tact was turned into a chicken nugget in the first session and killed off by the third.So, by comparison, a kleptomaniacal, selfish and short-fused child-soldier asshole was the closest thing the base had to a straight man.Ain't AdEva somethin'?
>>25953142One of these days I'm going to have to play a Neo Spartan who goes all MANLY TEARS possibly OF RAGE. But I have a not-so-secret love of ham.Though I think the all consuming stoic routine is so common because players afraid of what's going to happen to their characters. Possibly. It's easier to put a cardboard cutout in front of a speeding train than to do the same to a school kid.
>>25953267Just to confirm I'm in the safe zone here. If I made a berserker whose Eva went full eldritch abomination. And the character is trying to fight off the influences that come with synchronizing to that thing with mixed results. Would I have fallen into that same trap then?
>>25953214Only the GM had those, I did this over IM and he basically just gave me a set of prestatted characters to choose from and let me fillin the blaanks history wise. I'll see what I can do, don't expect anything in short order though.>>25953285So the Captain of the shipdecides to stop in on Tokyo first since Leo Shining took a real beating in that fight and only Steadfast Tokyo has the means to repair Jaegers in Japan.Unit 047 was also pretty damaged and it'd be nice if it could get ahold of some standard armaments in case she has to be deployed on land.Regardless of the reasons the Aircraft Carrier heads for Tokyo. Stone, Braun, and Okada spend that time relaxing and recovering from their fight with the Naga Angel. (Whose corpse was retrieved and is being shipped to a "location with the facilities required to assess this threat.")Marshal Solokov meanwhile uses her training as an Intelligence Officer and her connections in the Pan Planetary Defence Corps to get some stealth equipment and communications devices so that she can make it into the restricted area.It turns out that Tokyo steadfast was originally meant to be a Shatterdome, but was wrecked during the Kaiju Onibaba's rampage. The E-Project fortress was built on the ruins and the resstricted section is some manner of research facility.There are Angel and Kaiju corpses there in varying states of decay under study by the E-Project's top scientists. Furthermore there's evidence that humans have been disected but its not certain as to what the circumstances were in those cases.Apparently there's yet another restricted area in a sublevel of Tokyo Steadfast that not even Solokov can get access to with her spy tools and training. She makes certain to send this info back to the UN via safe channels.
>>25953314>>25953329Sounds like they are doing their blankstare wrong.
>>25953385Well done blankstare is hard as fuck, and works a million times better in non-interactive and visual mediums.
>>25953412Probably true. Blankstare relies on subtlety and nonverbal cues, which is hard in text and especially hard on the fly.Though, now that I think about it, now I REALLY want to see pic related as Eva Pilots.
>>25942917It's still heavy as fuck for an assault rifle.
>>25953449I can't even begin to describe how much I'd love to see that.
>>25943519This. They also, despite claiming otherwise, aren't much open to outsider opinions that clash. Borderline will never do anything. and v3 will be as broken, and as narrow ONE WAY ONLY as v2.5 was. That's the major problem I had; they literally didn't put things in cus they didn't like them on a personal level. They basically didn't add things or make a wide array of choices because they weren't things they would choose.
>>25953449I bet it ends with Silent Bob explaining the plot to the rest of the pilots, pointing out step by step how the convoluted subplots have all be converging on this weird outcome and this had all been telegraphed for weeks and they never picked up on it.It is the first, and last, time he speaks in the whole campaign.
>>25943372Shouldn't that image be named futanaRei.png?
>>25953356I wanna play a manu that struggles to be emotionless. Like they think they have to be emotionless to do their job and think their job matters more than anything else, 'cause they're literally made to do it. Like they were built and trained to be a machine, they want to be one too, but underneath it all they're still human and just can't deny their feelings.Not sure where I'd go with it, though. Depends on how they're treated. I could some SAN loss leading to them chanting "I don't feel a thing" or "I can't cry" over and over. Maybe while crying.Dunno. As impossible as it is, I'd like to think I could start a character out a little off kilter and have them come out of the game MORE normal than they went in. Or at least more sure of themself.
>>25953477The backgrounds in V3 are even more restrictive as they seem to have split Prod and survivor into a ton of archetypes. So you want to make a charismatic manu? An athletic NS? A nerdy survivor? TOO BAD NOW! Nerd, charisma-dude and athletes are now their own backgrounds instead of stuff you can do with assets.Or so I heard.
>>25953477Isn't the alternative to that them intentionally including material that they think is shit?
>>25953510More or less, yeah. They've added things that didn't need added and gotten rid of classes which actually makes things MORE restrictive in a lot of ways, if I remember.Basically, they're taking all the worst parts of RT chargen and all the worst parts of THEIR chargen and combining them.
>>25953368So obviously Wantanabe was up to something, but Solokov couldn't figure out what, and she couldn't tell Stone anything because now that he'd linked with Okada there was a good chance they'd formed a telepathic bond.Speaking of which the Aircraft Carrier reached the port of Tokyo Steadfast and offloaded Unit 047 and Leo Shining into the base for repairs along with their pilots.So Stone and Okada go to bed and they get kidnapped and taken into the restricted section of the base by Wantanabes men. Now Okada had combat training, but hers lent itself more to piloting an Eva than any real life examples. Stone had combat training that was meant for use on normal human beings. A few rolls and Fate Points later and there were broken bones and bullets wounds passed out among Wantanabes favorite soldiers. Stone had taken damage but nothing important was wounded.So of course Okada and Stone barricaded the door and began interrogating the head guy, in pretty classic action movie fashion this amounted to kicking the bullet wound in his shin until he fessed up.Apparently their orders were to administer a paralytic agent to the Pilots so that they'd be able to study the effects of the Drift on pilots as they went through various stimuli. Wantanabe had wanted to find a way to make better Evas and better Pilots and if that meant disecting a few of them so what?
>>25953508I bet that, as they went crazy and started to act irrational? They would become self destructive.After all, they are supposed to be an emotionless machine to do a job. If they are letting their emotions and neuroses get the better of them... doesn't that make them a DEFECTIVE machine?
>>25953531No, you see, it's not 'shit,' its literally leaving out things just cus you don't care for them. And given the shit they put in, to keep OUT canon things is simply stupid.The material isn't shit, because they haven't made the material. Any decent designer can take things and make material for it that WORKS even if they personally would never even play it.
>>25953493"Why the hell didn't you tell us this sooner?""You didn't ask."
>>25953558>And given the shit they put in, to keep OUT canon things is simply stupid.Like what?
>>25953551Okada is pissed, Stone is also pissed but he has a plan, first part basically involves tying up or mercy killing Wantanabes guards, hunting down his pet scientists and doing the same to them. But before he does this he activates his communication device and tells Sokolov what happened, SHE gets ahold of Braun and lets her speak to Okada and Stone who tell her the entire thing.Now its clear that by E-Project protocols Wantanabe is OUR OF LINE and that he has to be stopped, so Braun takes Solokov to her Eva and runs her through the start up process. She also takes some standard weapons and armor from the bases stock and deploys outside of the fortress.Braun calls up her captain and tells him what happened so the Captain of the ship coms the base and asks Wantanabe what the hell is going on Wantanabe decides he's fucked up but his plan is still salvagable, so he deploys activates his big trump card.Artifcial Kaiju using Eva tech. Ever see Gigan? These guys were kinda like that. An enormous goddamn crabshell filled with cloned Angel flesh and armed with rifles and missiles.It was backed up by a creature with a massive (I'm talking 1/4th of its body here) chainsaw installed in its head and four arms, each ending in a chainsaw, it was kind of like a cybernetic shark-dog with chainsaws on every conievable limb.So yeah he opened up the restricted section of the base and deployed the things. Apparently his plan involved using his elite guard and Man Made Kaiju to kill everyone who wouldn't follow him.Obviously the Cyborg Kaiju went completely out of control and immedietly attacked the base and Unit 047.
>>25953663Sonic Guillotine and Core Knife come to mind on stupid weapons they put in over canon and interesting stuff.
>>25953557Hm, good point. Could lead into an interesting twist on Rei's comment in Rebuild, too. She says "I can be replaced", telling Shinji to abandon her. Now, imagine a manufactured saying they WANT to be replaced...
>>25953551>perhaps one in one million people is qualified to pilot a Jaeger or an Eva>totally disposableCool plot, but this Wantanabe guy needs to take a math lesson or something, god damn.
>>25953707I don't know where they pulled the Core Knife out of, but the Sonic Guillotine was actually in the show.They used it against twin Angel to chop it in half during the dance segment. The script and materials technically call it a "sonic lance", but it was two poles and some kind of cutting field between them. I think that they changed the name because "lance" in that context would just confuse the heck out of us, where Guillotine is more in keeping with how it actually works.It had all of 4 seconds of screen time and is never explained or used again, but it was totally there.Also, what I meant to ask was "what canon stuff did they leave out?" The only thing that really comes to mind is the force field box that they try to capture the baby volcano angel in, which was totally worthless at the one thing it was supposed to do against what was probably the weakest angel in the whole show.
>>25953706So you have Robo-Crab going after Unit 047, you have Sawhead cutting Tokyo Steadfast to pieces and Wantanabe is losing his shit in the Command Center, shooting people and ranting about traitors.Enter Solokov, she shoots the fuck out of Wantanabe, by some strange miracle the man manages not to get of his vitals struck but Solokov hand cuffs him to a chair and has a Medic attend to him.So he'll be healthy for the firing squad.Then she calmly talks the base personel through emergency procedures, has Leo Shining Deployed and calls in an airstrike from the fighter wing based on the carrier.Leo Shining is prepped for combat and right as she's about to stride out Chainsaw head breaks into the Hangar. The Base Personel haul ass and Leo Shining Tackles the thing and forces it backwards, out of the base via Vice Gauntlets and Laser Blasts.Unit 047 meanwhile plays a game of Keep Away. She uses her Shield to block missiles and laser blasts from Robo-Crab and returns fire with her rifle's missile launcher and the occasional burst of gunfire.Solokov keeps an eye on the action, using feeds from the Jaeger and Eva and calmly advises them. he main plan is to force the Robo Kaiju away from the base so that they can call in some bombers and start using smart bombs and maybe a few drone strikes to help the Jaeger and Eva finish off the Robo Kaiju.Wantanabe is drugged into a light coma so he won't cause any trouble. His elite guard have surrendered to MPs and his scientists are called into the control room.
>>25953802...I remember a sonic glaive, which was just a spear. I don't remember any sonic guillotine.Also, the electromagnetic crossbow, most of the non-knife melee weapons (which can be made with only a heavy investment and are rarely worth it compared to just basic shit).It doesn't help that the rules themselves are just pretty shite too.
>>25953850Oh. Well if you are counting Rebuild then yeah, I suppose they are missing a lot.
>>25953898I thought that AdEva wasn't marrying itself to Rebuild, since Rebuild isn't over yet and nothing about it has been given any explanation or anything?
>>25953809So The Scientists start talking, apparently the whole "Pilots are disposable" thing was an excuse fed to his Guard's Commander to keep him in line. He was trying to phase pilots out entirely, make artificial monsters to fight real ones. He was crazy, paranoid, and using threats against the scientists families and his guards (apparently recruited for their criminal tendencies and unquestioning loyalty) made physical and emotional abuse of the scientists a viable tactic to force the scientists to produce results.He was making artificial Cores in the hopes of producing controllable Angels and Artificial Kaiju. Saw Head and Robo Crab being his pet projects made from materials taken from dead Kaiju and Angels as well as Surplus Eva Materials, thus the lack of Evas and actual Pilots and Wantanabe's odd behaviour.Apparently he'd wanted to see if he could use The Drift to make his monsters stronger and only J-Project pilots are exposed to the Drift over a long period of time, he couldn't pass up the opportuinty.Unfortunetaly for him all J-Project militaries are heavily trained in multiple forms of martial arts and usually trained in the use of conventional weapons on top of their piloting training, Now by this time Unit 047 and Leo Shining had forced their respective opponents into the outskirts. Saw Head's saws were kind of useless against Leo Shining's armor, but he had his own AT field thanks to his Artificial core. This forced Leo Shining to be careful with its attacks since its pilots took San Damage every time their rolls failed. Still the Robo Kaiju AT fields were flawed, and kind of weak in comparison to an Angel's AT field so it wasn't quite that bad.Unit 047 meanwhile was having a little trouble with Robo-Crab, she could overcome its AT Field easily enough buts armor was very hard for her to penetrate with her rifle, and standard pistols wouldn't do the job either.
>>25953927...an electromagnetic crossbow need more explanation?Besides, they leave out other shit, and sort of built the classes far more narrowly.
>>25953927And Rebuild got stretched into a four part series so far, while the AdEva devs haven't had a problem adding their own crap to the game."It isn't over yet" isn't a good reason not to add in elements that, y'know, DON'T require knowing the ending to understand. A lot of the weapons and shit are one offs in Rebuild, anyway.I honestly can't wrap my head around that logic. "Let's add a bunch of random stuff we think up, but oh no! We can't use a canon movie, it's sacred!"
>>25954027I'll take AT Powers and the Core Knife over fucking CAT EVA any day of the week.
>>25953449"This job'd be great if it wasn't for the fuckin' Angels."
>>25953954So around this time Flights of Jets begin hitting the battle field, they fly in, target one of the Kaiju and bombard him with missiles. Doesn't do much in the way of damage but every little bit helps, after each barrage they return to their carrier and load up on more missiles.Solokov is entirely sick of this fight by now and decides to use one of the oldest battle tactics of all. Saw Head and Robo Crab don't fight like a team, so it may be possible to use them against one another. She tells Unit 047 and Leo Shining that they should try just that.Leo Shining aknowledges and starts moving into position. Leo Shining lumbers into position behind Robo-Crab and starts peppering Saw-Head with lasers, when saw head tries to slice open Leo's head the Jaeger dodges and grapples its arm with its vice Gauntlets, then it initates a Death Roll. The Gauntlets spin 360 degrees and tear the Kaiju's arm in half. This really pisses it off.Unit 047 is more than happy to try something new, aside from blasting off Robo Crabs smaller limbs she hasn't accomplished much so she moves into position and goads the crab into charging her.Saw Head Meanwhile lowers its head and tries charging Leo Shining. Leo dodges to the side, grapples with Saw head and forces its head town and starts running with the creature.Saw Head can't stop, and Robo Crab doesn't see in coming until it's too late. Unit 047 dodges to the side just as Saw Head's enormous saw slams into Robo Crab's shell and starts tearing it open.Saw Head tries to pull out but Unit 047 grapples with it as well and forces iit to saw right through Robocrabs vitals.
>>25954053Yeah, but the AT powers are shit and boring?
>>25953508I am using this for my character in an upcoming AdEva game. I was looking for a way to not do a straight "doll" Manu, but not completely disregard his origins either, and you sir have given it to me. Thank you. Have a sfw page from a porno doujin starring Rei.
anyone know how big unit-01 was during this scene?rei was easily 2.000 kilometers tall...
>>25954205Eva size has always been "whatever looks coolest for this scene". Actual numbers need not apply.
>>25954122So Robo crab gets saw ed almost in half, its vitals are exposed, and purplish Cyborg Kaiju blood is fucking everywhere. Around this time the jets come in and Leo and 047 pull back so they can get in another barrage. This barrage manages to land a few tank buster rounds on Robo-Crab's core and the creature dies.This just leaves Saw Head, who is pissed and intent on killing Leo Shining for destroying its armOnly now, its out numbered, and Leo was always meant to be a brawler. Leo closes the distance and grapples with Saw Head, one by one she grapples the Robo Kaiju's arms and lets 047 blow those arms to hell with its rifle at point blank range and then all they're left with is the head.Leo puts Saw head in a head lock and lets 047 put a couple dozen rounds in its braincase.The Robo Kaiju are defeated, Wantanabe, his guards, and his scientists are rounded up for interrogation and more than a few of them are put on trial for war crimes, Wantanabe is publicly executed for his crimes against humanity/ Tokyo Steadfast becomes Tokyo Shatterdome with Solokov as the Marshall.Stone and Okada go on to pilot the first Jaeger modified with Eva tech.Braun goes on to be the first Eva pilot involved in piloting an Eve with a Dual plug system.and the war with the Angels and Kaijus continues.Story time over, I hope you enjoyed it.
>>25954220eh, looks far bigger on screen...

>>25954302Also, the apocalypse happened 15 years ago and Tokyo-3 is a thriving metropolis.Sure, the giant monsters occasionally ruin your shit. But I bet it is STILL a better place to live than a lot of alternatives that never recovered from the Second Impact.
>>25954295Okay One shot was the wrong term. It was intended as a one shot and we stuck with it because why the fuck not?it was actually 3 sessions, short campaign, more like a starters adventure module than a campaign though.>>25954205In my game we capped Evas at 200 feet and capped jaegers at 300 feet.

>>25954357yeah it was, all the bits between okada and stone were stuff I made up, she was kinda a puppet that my PC was permabound to. Braun was somewhere in between a Knight and an Operator and out GM apparently was testing out his system. He'd read the leaked script for PacRim and thought combining the ideas would be fun.Clearly, it was.

Can someone archive this thread?
>>25954290Great Ramen stands.
>>25956160No need anymore. All threads on /tg/ are already on foolz
>>25955332Ah, so they're the smart ones? Got it. Thanks!
>>25953449Oh this needs a Drawfag! Of course, then the quest fags will invade this thread an kill it with a shitstorm.
>>25957271I hope you aren't confusing the Precursors for being the same species as kaiju.
>>25953267Characters played for laughs tend to ruin the mood more than anything else, though. Almost as much as characters that insist on emotional invulnerability in an RPG about fucking Evangelion.
>>25958075Nothing I hate more than the stoic, fearless, duty bound NS which has more sheer devotion and determination than a goddamn space marine.
As a person who is only vaguely aware of what Eva is about and hasn't watched most of it I cannot help but think>Can afford giant cyborg angel death machine>Can't afford therapist for giant cyborg angel death machine's clearly troubled child-soldier pilotNERV, everybody!
>>25958307/m/ has been over this; it's because NGE is an anime and Japan simply has a mentality of suffering in silence and 'it can't be helped'.
>>25958710That and in general not giving a fuck about the mentally ill as they are seen as 'useless'. Japan and social welfare don't go hand in hand.
>>25958307Haven't you realized that pilots suffering from extremes of mental stress out perform confident and functional pilots?There's no therapist by design.
An Angel I'm going to throw at my players in the future is already in orbit. It is a n uniform toroid 120 km radius in geostationary orbit, clocking in at 2.9*10e22 kg, and stable. What kind of supervolcanoes, tidal waves am I looking at? Do I need to dial th density back/introduce background AT fuckery to explain it?
>>25958814And yes, it's intended as a fighting field, a maze, and an obstacle, not an enemy in its own right. Sorta Shadow of the Colosus style.
>>25952303So you ran a prototypical Super Robot Wars campaign mashing up Eva and Pacific Rim? I fucking love you.
>>25958855>shadow of the colossus meets evangeliondear sweet blasphemous god want
Oh lucky, this threads still alive. Just finished a session about 15 minutes ago.It started off poorly. None of the pilots could hit or damage the angel. And I could not roll damage for the life of me. There were no damage hits from a Remiel tier laser.And then the mists cleared. Berserker takes his Prog knife to the Angel's leg, 2 hits takes it from full health to flying 140 meters away.The Angel doesn't take this well. Next round it pushes itself up off the ground and lasers him in the leg. 0 wounds to 12 critical, just like that.After multiple synch disruptions he's up over 100 SR and more importantly, totally fucking Berserked (first time so far). The Bereserk cancels his newly acquired stun and he the angel in the body pounding it into the modest criticals.Then the AT Tech swings in with a sword putting it over 10 critical to the body. It's disabled and defenseless. The groups new character (Another Berserker) spends the rest of the round poking it in the core for minor damage.This was supposed to be the hardest part of the fight and they've just waltzed through it.
>>25953063The Drift taking down an AT field make sense. AT fields are powered by social isolation and autism and fagotry while the drift is made from human bonds.
>>25954250Damn, If you ever want to irc play that that hit me up.Pastebin the rules so I can play it myself?
>>25964902So I haven't yet seen PacRim, but are you saying that the Jaegers' whole dual-pilot setup works thanks to a low-grade Anti-A.T. Field?
Just pointing out if you see a review you dont like, dont be afraid to comment; if they see a big backlash they'll reverse course; no critic likes being critiqued.
>>25965581I am a critic and I like being critiqued.Such that I may then argue
>>25957924No, just saying that the kaiju seemed like instinctually-driven monsters, and that it was more likely that something was sending them instead of them just occasionally wandering towards the shiny-shiny rift in spacetime and just ending up here.
>>25965462>>25964902As I recall it the AT Field was described as the only thing seperating human minds from one another.If you try to pilot a Jaeger on your own the thing basically causes you to have a fatal siezure, thus the two pilot system where people share the computing power of their brains to ruin the machine.As a side effect they develop telepathy of sorts (see the prequel comic and the doctor mentioning sharing a dream with her fellow pilot) they need to be compatable for a relationship since The Drift will share experiences and thoughts between the pilots.Concievably the Drift erodes AT fields to one degree or another, or Nueral linking creates a combined AT Field more powerful that what humans normally generate.So in this case Rangers would attempt to strike the enemy angel, and their intent to damage the angel would automatically be carried out via intuition (we'll assume that after linking their minds offensive use of the AT fiel to kill angels becomes instinctual, but without special equipment they can't use it defensively, and the attack effect only works on creatures that use defensive AT Fields.) thus allowing Jaegers to combat Angels on roughly the same level as Evas.That's my two bits anyway.
>>25965462Wouldn't an anti-A.T. field result in the pilots turning into tang? Honestly sounds more like they found a way to merge their A.T. fields into a stronger one... Might explain how the Jaegers can more without collapsing under their own weight, without running on Angel physics.
>>25966619I....That's an excellent goddamn point.The Pilots go into seizures because their AT Field can't handle the Jaeger.Two Pilots fuse their AT Field by creating a WiFi hook up in their brain creating a strong enough AT Field to both rienforce the Jaeger and defend against the more esoteric angel attacks.You're pretty baller anon.
>Beginning Nueral Handshake>Nueral Handshake Complete>Pilots Linked>Beginning AT Field Convergence>10% 30% 60% 80%>Combined AT Field fully converged.Y'know most of the later models of Jaegers used "Gravity Compensators" whatever those are...But the idea of a machine that fuses AT fields in the pilots is kind of cool.

>>25967062Gravity Capacitors.Also, does anyone know what the fuck Variety's deal is. They've been running a goddamn CAMPAIGN against PACRIM for a month and half.
>>25967338>anyone know what the fuck Variety's deal isIt's a shitty periodical run by shitty people. That's about it.
>>25967371Well why dont we do something about it?http://variety.com/static-pages/contact-us/
>>25967433Because when has 4chan ever gotten shit done?
>>25945619What about his sniper duty? He managed to ignore is apathy and self loathing long enough to save the world that time.Really, he was becoming a better character through all of 2.2, but got beat down to complete shit by 3.33
>>25967586>When has 4chan ever gotten shit done>In an AdEva threadFuck it, I;m going back to /k/
>>25968050Cheer Up Anon, a Journalist (Well a guy studying journalism anyway) on /co/ coordinated with /co/mrades and wrote up an article accusing Variety of being unproffesional jerks.Not sure where he posted it though.I know for a fact at least one guy brought it up on Reddit.We're slowly trying to stir the SJW nest in the hopes of getting Koehler Canned.
HOLY FUCKTHAT WAS AMAZINGAAAHHH
Did someone say dump all your adeva art? I thought I heard someone say dump all your adeva art.
>>25969537I'm not doing it though because I'm lazy, have a mediafire download.http://www.mediafire.com/download/3pdvtu5rremrgef/AdEva-Mecha.7z
>>25969603Looked in there and noticed an early version of an Angel I drew.That was an early version of Keter. Here's the final version.
>>25968368Holy shit really?Link me to it so I can spam that shit everywhere.
