    So in this game are you required to give every playable character a crippling psychological illness? It's kinda crucial to the setting.

    Actually, after a couple of Angels you've got pretty good odds of that happening with Ego-Border damage naturally.

    Although the CharGen does encourage you to take PC's who are "damaged goods" to begin with.

    OP hear, I'm currently in a game.

    Conventional forces are more potent than one would expect. In the initial defence phase, we managed to cipple one of Sachiel's arms and heavily fuck up the other one. When the EVAs finally emerged, the resulting battle was...rather pathetic really. I actually started to feel bad for picking on the poor thing...until the bastard stabbed me through the head and later self-destructed.

    Would like to see upgrades to conventional forces (eg Leman Russes etc, maybe even Mobile Suits?)

    You MUST start with some drawbacks, which are usually psychological flaws of some kind but arn't required to be. However, taking extra Flaws can give you some bonus XP at the start. So in return for being more fucked up in the head, you can be slightly more powerful.

    But everyone wants to be more powerful, so what it really turns into is "You CAN take fewer Flaws than the rest of us, but you'll be 200 xp behind the rest of the party."

    The game system is essentially Dark Heresy with some minor to major modifications. The setting is harder to sum up, basically you play a mentally unbalanced fourteen year old that fights monsters with a 50 meter tall biomechanical mecha imbued with the soul of your mother and that feeds on mental trauma. All this happens while shadowy organizations manipulate you and your friends to their own ends.

    There is an entire chapter describing, like, 10 or 12 different kinds of Third Impact that can happen based on whether Adam wakes up, Lilith wakes up, they BOTH wake up, and who is was that woke them up and how/why.

    These are more-or-less the assumed ends of your campaign, if for no other reason than because trying to top it afterwards in your game would be HELLA DIFFICULT.

    Human instrumentality is one of the possible scenarios, but by no means the only one.

    My favorite is "Ascension", where you have someone pull a Gendo and implant Adam in his hand, but manages to do more than that and actually start using Adams AT Field.

    Heavy AdEva follower, minor contributor here, though I only know the details of two of the more high profile campaigns since the other two aren't played by post, of which one is a literal reenactment of Evangelion to my understanding, and the other is DM'd by a guy who kind of stopped showing up to talk to people.

    A note that v2's release date is 'soon'. In that it's currently close enough to being finished that the WIP is supposedly intelligible at this point (Not that I know for sure, having never seen it). There are of course still a bit more than a handful of things to be doing yet.

    I've been offered the chance to update the Angel generation tables for v2, on this note, does anyone who has read the tables/runs AdEva games using it/has made a vague glance at the tables but overanalyses Evangelion have any suggestions for me?

    Currently encroachers (Angels that attack infectiously in a mental or physical sense) are up for a complete revamp to differentiate them from the other two types, and theres maybe 1 or two extra traits and abilities to be tossed in there, but any further suggestions, particularly with regards to angels that fight at a distance and angels that have physical structures that defy accepted physics, would be appreciated.

    I have been running a game since the first release, and it is hella fun. We've just finished Israfel (the angel that splits into two smaller angels), so we're about halfway through. A few things I'd like to point out that I've found through playtesting and talking with the guys that are writing this:

    Neutralization is being updated to single people out less: you don't take ego damage until the Angel's turn, and it's sustain half, so the Angel only spreads up to its ATS-however much it's being Neutralized by each turn. I'm trying to explain it quickly, so I'm sure they'll word it better, but this means that whoever Neutralizes first isn't taking tons of Ego barrier damage for the rest of the encounter anymore.

    Don't play an AT Tactician unless you've got 2 other people that can Neutralize. Being an ATT and having to spend all of your ATP on Neutralizing makes you into a shitty Skirmisher.

    The difference between 3 Evas and 4 Evas is HUGE. I don't know if BMJ's crew ever tested with 3 Evas, but when we had our 4th pilot join the game, things definitely changed.

    The Angels' weapon stats already include strength bonus. I didn't see this specifically stated, but I might just be blind.

    Ask Archivist for the Angel Crit Tables if you are running this. They make everything easier (most of the DH table entries end up not doing anything to Angels)

    To be fair, if the MP EVA's hadn't had the odds stacked so heavily their way that it wasn't even funny, she would of won quite easily.

    Sorry, I don't have a link.

    Here’s a preview of some of the PCs though:
    Andrei – Operations Director, kind of laid back and is tasked with being in charge of the kids. Not really sure at times if he’s actually concerned for them or he’s just doing his job.
    Vlad – Pilot, pointman, very militaristic. Not so good in social situations.
    Klara – Pilot, AT Tech, somewhat egotistical. She’s attempting to get the entire school to praise her.
    Albert – Pilot, Skirmisher, very odd. He’s known for saying random things and not taking everything that seriously.
    John – Pilot, Skirmisher, angel hybrid. That being said, he’s pretty offsetting but somehow comes off as a determined pilot.
    Toru – Pilot, Berserker, prone to mood swings. Think of a mix between Shinji and MC from Persona 3, he’s new and is sort of trying to get used to the situation and the group.

    I have been running a campaign for 3 weeks now, Its been a ton of fun. I am using a variant on the standard "protect the city" model, I'm using the "hunt the angels" idea that someone posted in a previous thread. I have a huge group of 5 pilots, half of whom decided to roll up fanatical Germans, so I have had to adjust some of the angels a bit, but other then that it's going pretty well. Sachiel was taken down by the group in the Saharan Desert after a fight lasting two and a half hours, the last half hour of which was the berzerker and one of the two skirmishers beating the shit out of him while he was on the ground. I started the Shamshel encounter last session, the players needed to search a sector of the Amazon rain forest for him with the support of some light military units. Pointman and the AT Tact. run into him, and after getting thrown about a bit stage a fighting withdrawal until the other three pilots are able to reach them.

    This. Even against the kind of competent, well organised, well staffed, (mentally unhinged) and well armed teams you'll find cropping up in an Adeptus Evangelion endgame, playing Asukas encounter with the MP Evas is pretty goddamn challenging. I mean if theres an equal number of Evas to your team its trivial, even with the incredible toughness they just can't keep up with a well outfitted Eva, but as it is they are likely to outnumber even the larger teams 2 to 1, and suddenly they can properly box you all in for the kill.

    I can't really compare too well because I've never been in a game online, but from what I've seen of the logs of Archivist/BMJ's group, it looks like it goes a lot quicker in person. They'll do one fight session, then one-of-eva session the next week. In person, we've been able to do both in one sitting.

    My advice for a DM is to concentrate planning on the out-of-eva stuff (think of fun events to happen, develop your Gendo and your Ritsuko, come up with some other important kids in class, etc.), because the fights are really up to the dice and the players. Do at least roll ahead of time for how long it's going to be until the next Angel and where the Angel is going to be detected, so you can think of the basic gist of how the battle will start.

    OH! Another important thing that's being added to the rulebook are Synch Tests! Every week, in addition to whatever training you do, all the pilots test Willpower. If they pass, their Synch Ratio goes up by one and they get a training success towards Willpower. If they fail, their Synch Ratio goes down by one. If half or more of the pilots pass, the OpDir gets a training success towards Willpower.

    Tanks not as good as he thinks, because the DM forgot to apply the double-toughness part of the Angel trait during the defense phase.

    We've actually picked up a Prodigy ATT and a Manufactured Pointman as well, so if all goes well I'll probably reroll my character into Ops Director so that the DM isn't doing it.

    I would like to know how you got your SR to 'hilariously high' even with Prodigy, since the maximum calculation is (2d10+20)+2d10+15 (maximum 75).
    Since anything below 71 is not 'hilariously high' and you rolled 'shitty will' - where Will is added to your 2d10+15 for SR - I am now curious.

    Of course half the problem with the series is that the author went on his anti-depressants.
    Yes, on.
    Not off.
    The problem with anti-depressants is that they fix your motivational issues before they 'fix' the actual depression, which is why people new to anti-depressants often suicide (they no longer have a lack of motivation to kill themselves). Anyway, the writer began taking it out on his characters.

    Also, he's gone on record saying all the religious stuff was just to fuck with people.

    This. I actually enjoyed seeing everyone get worse and worse and knowing there was no hope for them.

    In my head I even rationalized the ending as Shinji just completely cracking under the strain. In reality he's probably just on the floor of a padded cell dribbling on himself.

    Fuck you, I liked the series ending. It wrapped up Shinji's character nicely, and ultimately that was the point of Evangelion: its psychologically damaged characters. Everything else was just a mecha framework for them.

    And EoE was just flat-out amazing. Dat Asuka fight, oh yeah.

    Still, it felt like a more complete end than the actual one, which is part of the reason I liked it. Not a huge ShinjixAsuka fan, but it was alright because it drove the plot.

    And the last one:
    This is actually my least favourite of all his translated Doujins, but for an Eva fan it's an entertaining read. I get most people to read on "It's a sequel to The End Of!" alone.

    The end of T.V. show was pretty lackluster but I think EoE was better in terms of concluding things. Re-Take is a pretty cool hentai doujin work but that's about it, in my opinion.

    Too bad, because that's basically the only option. Rei is a clone of his mother, he can't hook up with her. Besides, I think Shinji and Asuka complement each other quite well.

    Am I the only one who actually likes Shinji and doesn't think he's a coward? He's usually scared shitless, but still goes to out to fight time and time again. His fear is completely realistic, given he's only 14. His character is a complete deconstruction of the teenage boy mecha pilot archtype.

    few ideas for BMJ and questions for anyone who knows the answer-
    is there a link to the game logs for the stuff run by BMJ?
    for the area 51 zone, I don't know if it was suggested as a plot point but since the area has always been thought of as a shadowy place that has something to do with aliens, and in this setting Lilith and Adam are aliens, maybe the reason why they are a target, and have made the tech advances they have made, is because they have a dormant Lilith/child of Lilith/Adam/angel and are experimenting on them.
    when was the last official update made for this?
    er, have a few other ideas/ questions but I would need to see the newest version first.

    Well, could be worse. Your version of MAGI could go insane, rename itself Friend Computer and send you around to hunt perceived "Commie Spy Angels. "

    Since Evangelion is clearly not fatal enough on its own.

    While some ideas for new material are floating around, the Christmas release is still the "current" version, for now.

    I ran a bunch of playtests before, but they were all done in person. As such, no logs exists. I have, however, been participating in an online game from a players point of view, in order to make sure that someone who isn't the game designer can run it without any major complications and simply to have fun. Perhaps those are the logs you speak up? I have only partial logs of those game, but I am given to understand that the GM of that game has the full collection. I would have to get them from him.

    As for the area 51 thing, that would certainly be a valid basis for a campaign.

    -Ish. That was actually the plot of the earlier Kimigabuchi story "Truth?".
    Shinji arrives in time to save Asuka from the Mass Produced Evas, and everything looks like it'll turn out alright. Then a UN soldier splats Asuka's mind all over Shinji's face. Shinji pulls a MAXIMUM FUCK, kills Lilith and resets the universe to his own design. GOOD END ensues.

    >> Black Mesa Janitor 02/18/10(Thu)19:24 No.8159471

    You have the option of playing as Operations Director (Misato's role in the show), but that is currently the only non-pilot class supported.

    You COULD play as a random JSSDF grunt, and you could even say that one of the normally deployed Tank Squadrons or VTOL Wings was under your command. But your ability to contribute to combat would be VERY limited, and you wouldn't survive a direct hit from a dropped expended ammo magazine.

    You would, however, have an interestingly undefined role in the out-of-combat roleplaying sessions. You could certainly do it, with an open minded GM.

    In addition, once the supplemental material has been released you could play as a pilot for a mecha that WASN'T an Evangelion, and fluff it as a JSSDF robot in the line of Jet Alone or the Trident series.

    >> Black Mesa Janitor 02/18/10(Thu)21:33 No.8161558

    Thanks for the support.


    You are assumed to design your own Eva. While all of the tools required to make a carbon copy of one of the characters from the show are provided, it is by no means required.

    There are several additional rules encouraging both GMs and Players to create their own characters and universes to play in, so long as they fit in with the general Evangelion setting.

    The only possible downside to creating your Evangelion is that your Evangelion is built for you, rather than something your adolescent Pilot gets a say in. As such, its distinguishing features and color scheme are randomly determined via rollan on charts. While a kind GM might let you choose your own colors, distinguishing features MUST be kept random, as not all of them are positive.

    Much in the same way as Unit-00 (Rei's Evangelion) sometimes went mad and tried to kill Rei, certain possible Evangelion features are less helpful than a player is likely to willing choose.

    This is why I like the damage control phase. It's the perfect opportunity to throw the consequences of the players' antics at them. Pissing around, instead of getting into the fight? You're now a 2 Div soldier, one of ten thousand deployed to slow the Angel's advance, and your commanders anticipate 90% casualties.
    Letting the fighting spill into the city? You're now a civilian, trying to get your family through the chaos into a shelter. Ignoring collateral damage? You're an emergency crew clearing out a shelter turned into a charnel house by a wayward EVA foot.

    Did you ever intend to expand on the military's efforts in the fights, or is it going to remain an abstracted 'this many arbitrarily generated forces appear to slow them down'?

    > Did you ever intend to expand on the military's efforts in the fights, or is it going to remain an abstracted 'this many arbitrarily generated forces appear to slow them down'?

    An individual GM might be willing to go down that road, but from the perspective of most campaigns it would seem extraneous. So no.
    As it stands, feedback reports that Phase 3 is the part of the game that most groups seem to skip over, so the next version will make it slightly more optional, but considerably more rewarding to your surplus pool if you decide to do it, even if you do poorly at it.
