Hello and welcome to my first game of Adeptus Evangelion
! I've read quite a bit about it on both Tropes and 1d4Chan
and was really interested in running my own game!
For those of you who haven't heard of Ad Eva
, it's basically a hack of Dark Heresy
—that is, it uses the same system and rules for a lot of things—and redesigns it into a Neon Genesis Evangelion
RPG system. It's very detailed and brutal, but is fairly easy to run once you learn the rules. We will be playing V2; you can download it off the 1d4chan link above. Additionally, the game will be played over Maptools b86;
connecting to the server will require you to have Hamachi,
the Unmanaged version. Skype is useful, but not mandatory.
For those of you who haven't heard of NGE, it's one of the first Mecha deconstructions, just read the trope page and you'll be fine. Hell, might not even want to read about it to make it more surprising!
I plan for this campaign to be a little more action-oriented and hopeful; winning is definitely possible, even against both the angels and SEELE. Not that you're going to get off easy or anything, it's not like I'll necessarily shy away from Zeruel-scale battles. Since most campaigns I've seen put some twist on the setting, mine is that our characters live within Moscow-5, situated on the southern coastline of Russia. Ad Eva
's official lore states that Russia got off the lightest from Second Impact, and so NERV decided to deploy on the coast to get further support as a straight philanthropic as well as alien-slaying venture. Your characters certainly don't have to be born in Russia, though they have since been relocated for reasons undisclosed to them. You can find the map we will use here,

While it'd be fine for you to set up your characters as straight lists of stats, I'd recommend you scan in the character sheet as I have done and just upload it to Imgur,
or edit snapshots of the pdfs and put those on imgur.
I was also considering another addition, in that to keep things fresh I'd bring on an Angel GM to play each new Angel, maybe even designed by their controller. Just post about any interest in it and we'll work something out.
And our heroes! I'll keep it open for five more people including the Operations Director. I'd prefer to have a pretty diverse set of career paths, but I'd be fine with two of a class as well. Please remember that all Evas begin play with a Pallet Gun, a Prog Knife, a Wing Loadout—Knife Structural Upgrade, and 400 Experience Points.
