    I had my first permanent character death today. Went insane from a mind probe by a sentient abortion.

    Mira Severn

    Good night, sweet princess.

    I AE, sufficiently insane is dead. You can keep playing all the way through excessivley gratuitous stages of madness, but eventually you hti the point where the character is knocked off because it's just not playable any more. Why is left up to you.

    Some of the things I'm working on give you novel and specific consequences for hitting the unplayable madness mark, but they're not even past draft yet.

    The combination of 'killed by sentient abortion mindrape', 'born in 2001' and the anime image posting led be to suspect this.

    So are we going to get any details on just what went down? Did the angels get you pregnant and the baby caught out through your thoughts, hatching like a butterfly out of the wreckage of your shattered psyche?

    Yes, but what pushed you over the edge? Was it a long battle of attrition against the nameless horror, or did the last good chunk of your self-identity just go all at once if the face of something really awful?

    Well, color me curious. With much anticipation I will await the forthcoming results in 8-12 months time.

    Basically the angel was just a giant aborted fetus. It kept teleporting between Europe, where our TRIDENT pilot and the Operations Directors were, and the Sahara desert, where the evas were. Its primary attack was a mindprobe that made you do a willpower test. If you fail, you take insanity damage, and every time you fail, the damage you take was doubled.

    It self-destructed, I was too close to get clear, so I tried to shoot it and kill it before it blew up. I hit, but it didn't do damage, so it exploded. We ended with her Eva (which she -just- got this session) collapsed, and Mira not responding. The DM said it'll be up to him what happens to her, but she's no longer playable under any circumstances.

    So yeah.

    That... ugh. Throwing insanity points at the players like that seems like a wasteful squandering of what should be an interesting descent into madness on the part of the players. It turns the sanity mechanic into just another hit point gauge.

    This particular project is scaling drawbacks. Instead of taking your standard allotment at creation, you take just one of these. It tracks a stat, generally IP but I plan for Ego and maybe something else, and the extent of the drawback increases with it. At first they seem a very good deal, but as you play the game you're forced to go to more and more extremes to play around them. They also come with 100 IP/Ego game over variants, that are more specific than usual. My personal favourite is one that makes your character one of the SOMEBODY LOVE MEEEEEE types, and ends with you giving somebody your heart, neatly gift-wrapped. That is not a figurative statement.

    I wouldn't get too exctited about their current state. They're quite tricky to do, and will likely change substantially before they go in whatever it is they're going in.

    If I were you, I'd be commiserating the first character you've ever had be rendered unplayable by a GM who decided that he was going to get revenge on game balance because it killed his parents.

    It usually is, because it's meant to happen slowly and ainfully, with many new and interesting psychological disorders cropping up along the way. By the time your character hits the magic mark, their unplayability should feel liek a natural consequence, not an arbitrary decision.

    There are weaknesses to this, primarily in the Angelic attacks. They have to be able to inflict devastating psychological damage in short orde,r but there's no way to mechanically support that with fluff. We've done what we can to give GMs to the tools to make the abrupt annihilation of one's sanity interesting, but I can't make them use them. It's up to GMs to make use of such a potent element in the narrative of their game, and thep layers to take the initiative to ask for it, and encourage it through good roleplay.

    NGE was an example of how it would work with a good GM. He makes it hurt, but stops it exactly before the character is RFGed, and instead has them play out a near-RFG-experience in detail. He also gives them a last moment of glory, which, in true AE fashion, fails.

    I've voiced my opposition to midscan many times in the devroom, and done what I can about it, but there's not much to do beyond either take it out, or hope the GM using it is competent. I mean, Angelic mindrape to insanity an event that I made into a whole-session thing that needed extensive support and some of the most tortuous mechanics to make it work, and here it's one diceroll.

    I really liked Eva. It was the first anime I ever saw. And I had nightmares about it. I'd be floating in on a bit of metal in the middle of nerv, while off in the dsitances, Eva's just.. sat. Sometimes they'd be whole, but usually in their 'released' form, or partially human - released as in, with real eyes and maybe a hand showing, or human as in somewhat armoured, without their limiters. They'd be missing an arm, or just legs. And sometimes, they'd look at me. Among other things.

    I still sometimes have those nightmares.

    Near as I can tell, Rei, Lillith, the mass-produced evas and Unit 01 all merged into one super-entity, but with Unit 01 as the controlling intelligence. Only it doesn't really have a controlling intelligence, so that leaves Shinji. Wonderful.

    After that Rei/Lillith/Evas/Unit 01 merge the AT fields (and thus souls) of every living being on Earth, creating a single super-being composed of all the conciousnesses of everyone on the planet. This is, of course, a bag of ass for anyone with a sense of identity, so Shinji decides he'll not be having any of that and promptly pulls himself out of the collective, which it is strongly implied anyone else with a strong sense of self could do. Of course Asuka did it too, and then Shinji decided to choke the shit out of her again, presumably because he gets off on that now. Then she called him pathetic, which I can't exactly disagree with. I mean fucking A, he was in the pilot seat of God for a few minutes there and all he did was dump himself on the ruined shores of a sea of blood on his own personal dead planet. Way to go.

    If you accept the view of the general consensus, the new Evangelion movies are a sequel to the original show; and this time, Shinji's gonna do everything right, instead of pussyfooting around too much and watching uselessly as the world crumbles.

    Not a retcon. It's like, the universe ended in the first show; and this universe is literally a reboot, so things can go right this time, instead of failing like they did last time.

    Beats me what "right" is, though. Maybe "right" is Shinji not being a faggot any more, and following in the footsteps of our spiritual liege, Kamina.

    Well yeah. The old movies were End of Evangelion and Death&Rebirth which concluded the original tv series.

    The new movies are the Rebuild of Evangelion movies which, as th name implies, are a remake of the original tv series in movie format with a more optimistic plot and some drastic changes to the plotline (even if it is implied it is a sequel to the original series).

    The Angel redesigns look badass as well. Ramiel especially:

    My characters don't ever tend to die.

    Captured, tortured, and then reemerge crazy with what may or may not be the best interests of the group at heart, yes. Three characters, in fact, have had a variation of this happen without any foreplanning on my or the gm's part.

    The few characters that have died have been under the same GM,who goes with the style of "non uh, that 20 doesn't pass/that fate point doesn't count, you're dead anyway," so the emotional impact is considerably lessened.

    Eva is a story of repetition.
    It is a story where our protagonist faces the same situation many times over and determinedly picks himself back up again.
    It is a story of the will to move forward, even if only a little.
    It is a story of the resolve to want to be together, even though it is frightening to have contact with others and to endure ambiguous loneliness.
    I would be most gratified if you find enjoyment in these 4 parts as it takes the same story and metamorphoses into something different.

    fellow adeva player here.

    but then again, tabbris is the only angel that somewhat tried to understand humans by being one, and trying to understand trough feelings like one, rather than trough telepathic contact

    the reason arael brainbusts you is that the way an angel "brain" works is completely and utterly different from how our brain works.( just the fact that angels have natural external atfields goes to show that) as such when an utterly different, but way more potent at exerting itself againts what is "reality" around it, angel telepathically communicate with you, your "pathetic" sanity gets eroded pretty fast, and if you resist, it will try to probe then, furthering the damage, but as it is an angel, and doing this out of curiosity, it would not understand that.

    After reading so many posts of "lol, AdEva character is brain dead", do most AdEva characters start/end up like that? Sorry to be blunt, everywhere I read about AdEva, every single character story is about how shell-shocked they are, how they can't pick up a pencil because MY PARENTS ARE DEAAAAAAAAAD, or any other reason you'd have to roll another character. Seems generally like a exaggeration of how the characters in NGE were. Is there any modified rulebook that's more combat-orientated and less heavy on your character being spoon-fed?

    Yep. The game is fairly well rigged and a greatly exaggerated version of the animu -- PCs are on a one way ticket to being tanged, and that's not counting the reasons people got tanged in the series (for 400% synchronicity and because of Third Impact, respectively -- those tang you too in AdEva, but they're separate)

    Depends on the GM. Canonical Angels won't get pilots too terribly fucked up until Arael, or if you get really sneaky with Bardiel. I personally just had Bardiel take over a bunch of failed Evas in the Boneyard so it was just fear checks and not I KEELED MY FWIEEEEEEEEEND! Then they cleverly kept Arael from doing much damage. Encroachers in general have never had much luck against my group.
    I'm hoping to change that in this next campaign. Pic related, it was the inspiration for their characters, and will be the inspiration for the plot after I'm done running them through some WWE scenarios.

    More of direct mind-to-mind contact with alien beings with a sense of self so strong they bend physics with their individuality. Your mind just kind of gets buried or crushed if you can't cut the WP rolls.
    But, there's tons of ways to keep it from happening because of your Eva, and ways to minimize the damage from Angels. The Angels can still be a huge threat, but if you're throwing tons of encroachers out without remembering that every single one that showed up in the series essentially took a pilot out of the game (Bardiel>Togi, Arael>Asuka, Arismael>Rei), it's really your own fault.

    Evangelion is about deconstruction of the genre and rebuild is about deconstructing and rebuilding NGE itself. That would make Mari a deconstruction of the Mary-Sue or fanfiction insert character.

    Meh, It's ok really. 14 year olds aren't people. I might feel a little bad if she was twenty but really even that's a fifty/fifty. If you ask me, abortion should still be an option up until the kid's eighteen years old.

    Indeed, what kids these days need to be taught is that if they aren't pleasant and polite, they can DIE. And if they die, they deserve it. Children have no human rights. Children are not human. Abortion isn't murder, its pest control.

    > but whoever's attacking the angels loses Ego barrier every fucking round forever

    Yeah, sorry about that.

    Version 1 Neutralization rules... they made sense to me at the time. But like many things about Version 1 of AdEva, they just were not good in practice.

    You have to remember that, before I released it online last Christmas, AdEva has been playtested in 8 battles only, several of them disconnected as they were testing entirely different rules.

    In short, before V1 was released it just didn't have the playtesting necessary to point out any but the most basic of flaws (like "there are all these huge gaps in what we need to be able to do, make Pointman to fill them").

    But in any event, Adeptus Evangelion V2 removed that particular aspect of Neutralization. Just so you know.

    To be fair, if Gendo wasn't a total dick, and hadn't been fapping to the idea of rasing Yui from the dead, at least Toji could of been saved. Have the three pilots work as a wolf pack, blow the legs off, pin the arms, and have the third guy pry the entry plug out of the Eva.

    From what I remember is that you need a high-sync ratio in order to dissolve into LCL. Asuka's sync-ratio plummets once Bardiel takes over. Don't think Bardiel would want Asuka as tang and turning into the Eva like in ANIMA. She's there in flesh and blood when Unit 01 bites her entry plug in half.

    You take Ego Barrier damage when your SR goes too high, yes. You also take it when an Angel goes poking around in your brainmeats, or in the presence of an Anti-AT Field. When you are reduced to 0 Ego Barrier, you are tang. Think of it as the Angel is synchronizing with you (essentially, it is), and it's really fucking good at it.

    Bump for AD EVA

    If we're talking about Ad EVA...

    I just pulled an awesome mindfuck moment on the other players in my party last session with the help of the GM. As far as everyone was concerned, Sharon McDougal was a 14 year old Irish American girl, orphaned in 2nd Impact, and the ward of the Ops Director. She was a nice girl, and had been hanging around NERV HQ since the age of six, so she'd picked up a good deal of knowledge about its going ons, maybe not as much as the OD, but more then the 'other' prodigy in the group, and on par with the two neo-spartans. A year before the start of the setting, she'd been 'tested' by the head of Project E for viability, and it was 'discovered' that she had an amazing natural affinity for synching with an EVA. Naturally enough Commander Harrison ordered me inducted into the Pilot program, I got a nice bright green EVA with glowing neon blue blood, the Angelsense power, and built in stablizers, plus a plugsuit to match. I find out that I'm a pretty damn good defender, and start wielding a shield as part of my standard combat loadout.

    Cue Sachiel marching out of Boston Harbor. The Team, consisting of myself, a prodigy berserker who my character thinks is cute, a neospartan skirmisher, and a neospartan AT Tac, intercept him and kick his ass. Time passes, and we're at rank 3-4. We get the call, get in our plugs, and are fired up to the surface. Seems a giant alien panther creature has been tearing up the harbor district with laser beam eyes and retardedly sharp claws. I charge into combat as usual, and promptly start getting my ass kicked by this thing. Half a dozen rounds later, my eva is really badly torn up, when the Angel hits the Evas body with a blast from the Laser Eyes. The entry plug is torn apart and I take 58 personal scale damage, killing Sharon quite handily. As she was screaming for support on that video screen thingy the plugs have, the entire party watches me die. The Berserker does not take this kindly. He snaps, and starts ranting about how "That alien bastard killed Sharon!" and so on. He spends a fate point to roll his chance to Berserk (House rule of the GM), and his eva starts tearing Pantheriel a new asshole, eventually resulting in the Skirmisher firing a point blank blast from a Positron rifle into the core.

    After the combat is over and the Berserker has snapped out of it, they haul the remains of my entry plug out of my eva, and everyone says a few words. The GM hands out XP and everyone else starts to pack up, when he says "I'm not finished. Ok Sharon, you wake up in a glass tube filled with LCL, you can't see anything beyond the faint glow given out by some medical equipment. Furthermore, you can't seem to remember anything that happened in the last day or so. As you float there in the tube, a number of burning lights spear into the room. You can see some kind of observation room up near the ceiling. Sub-Commander Douglas and Doctor Randall are standing there, watching."

    Turns out I was a Manufactured all along.

    The whole point of EVA is that its a deconstruction of the Super Robot genre. Its supposed to be like it is.

    So random AdEva question. I generate a Insect type angel. I roll for Toughness and get 10. That means the wounds in it's head is it's TB -2. So it has -1 wounds in it's head.

    Should I just add the head to it's body hit location or have the angel fall over as soon as they find it?

    Um wat? That thing could be taken down by the pilots on foot with a little persistence and a big enough gun.


    This, when you nearly WIPE OUT ALL HUMANS ON EARTH just to get that girl who's kinda nice to you back after she was eaten by a lovecraftian horror, you're a badass.

    It's an encroachment angel. They have a 35% chance of having 1 toughness.

    Doublechecking things I realize the head only has 0 wounds since Angel means it's TB is still 2 rather than -1. My problem remains.

    Wounds will always default to 0.

    Also questions open, etc.

    It has a head, just at no wounds. I mean, they might deal less than the critical amount needed to take the head off or something.

    I could of course change it, but if I were to go strictly by the random generation rules, it would have a had that start's getting crit'd immediately and once the head goes down the angel becomes disabled and becomes much less effective, only getting a half action each turn and not being able to regenerate.

    The ironic thing is, I'm not actually a half angel hybrid. Plus the looks on the other players faces were totally worth it.

    My first character death happened a few months ago. I didn't take it well. It was my first character ever, I'd made it myself without any help and she died when she was beaten to death by a huge gang of orcs and an ogre.

    I don't think I've ever got a insect angel that satisfied me out of the current generation system. The other types usually make at least workable results (barring the occasional probability lemon) but insect-types never seem to come out like the "Hey! It's a giant protoplasmic wolf that also a bee hive!" or the "It's a huge eight-legged cow made of overlapping tesseracts that shoots lasers!" that the other types sometimes do. It just can't seem to get past "And here's an angel that's also a bug! ...What more do you want?" whenever I do it.

    This is the interpretation of AT-Fields and Ego barriers that i tend to incline to. The Angels are totally singleminded to the extent that their entire existence consists of the one directive of achieving Third Impact, and they bend the universe to achieving that end.

    So they can warp reality because of their singleminded determination?

    Takato was never a badass. Never.

    Give him negative wounds. They accumulate as the pilots attack. Force them to find a way around it.

    Question related to natural weapons. I remember finding something that said you could upgrade them with any melee status except progressive. So you could have Pneumatic natural weapons?

    Says the girl who advances Shinji's SDAT past tracks 25 and 26, causing it to break, and then manipulates him into triggering Third Impact, which she thinks of as "saving us all in the nick of time".

    Often a Bite or Claw attack, this natural weapon deals 1d5 Rending or Impact Damage, and may be upgraded as if it were any other sort of melee weapon. Natural weapons, even if Rending, may not be made Progressive.
