Role Play / Everything Gaiden v2

Go To

Everything: Gaiden v2 is the successor to Everything Gaiden under a new GM, which though possessing few changes to the original has quickly developed to a rather different game.

The premise remains the same: Random characters from unrelated worlds end up in an unfamiliar realm. However, the integration of a ruleset and abolition of the plot ban has resulted in a more plot-friendly environment.

Found here.


This game shows examples of:

  • Aerith and Bob: Ellen, None, Fuuka, Louie, Lizzie and Cheru are all examples of names from the game.
  • Alien Geometries: Marie's dance club, Club 404, is located on 'the fifth corner of X Street and Y Avenue'. On the other hand, her psychiatry business is somewhere completely different, in a perfectly normal building... and her office/home is connected directly to both of them.
    • Taken Up to Eleven when Marie activated 'Warp 404', causing the entire place to have a date with Escher.
  • Our Angels Are Different: In Louie's world, angels are divine bees of light and seraphim are giant six-winged bees of burning radiance.
  • Animated Armor: Knight-Class Contructs.
  • Archaic Weapon for an Advanced Age: Though in some cases, they are only archaic in comparison to the weapons of other worlds.
    • Risa has a pick in a futuristic universe, and None uses a bow, in a Schizo Tech universe leaning towards the futuristic.
  • Badass Normal: Jim, a courier from a post apocalyptic world, does not have any abilities and has very low Special Attack.

  • Captain Ersatz: Eldon Jaeger was originally supposed to be Eren Jaeger. Yes, that Eren Jaeger. Elf decided that they should be named differently, though.
  • Clockwork Creature: Ellen is, to an extent.
  • The Commandments: A meta-example in The Decalogue which is designed to handle lore conflicts.
  • Enhanced Archaic Weapon: Or in other cases, the sword is a necrotic, soul-stealing blade, the scythe withers all it strikes and the anthame summons seraphim.
  • Fragile Speedster: Gaston. He relies on evading and parrying attacks to survive, as he has a low Physical Defense.
  • Gaiden Game: Zigzagged. A majority of characters come from established settings (Twilight Academy, alternate universes to Rise Of The Magic Girls, what is implied to be Fallout and Starbound), but there is still a significant amount of characters from original settings.
  • Advertisement:
  • Gender Bender: Ori promptly transformed into a male as soon as Dany informed her he is gay.
  • Genre Shift: This possesses far fewer characters than the original and more of a plot focus, resulting in a more traditional structure.
    • The fewer characters bit is subverted with ElfCollaborator's entrance into the game.
  • Glass Cannon: Eina, None and technically, Fuuka.
  • Gradual Grinder: Ellen, to a lesser extent, Annabelle
    • The former specializes in applying poisons and debuffs.
    • The latter's magic heats objects to a point where their function is disrupted.
    • Andon's Schmerzgeist also has elements of this with Aspect: Obsession and Aspect: Delirium.
  • Hardboiled Detective: Miranda.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Vehemently averted by Miranda, who tries to drill averting this into Luke as well.
    • Gaston encourages this as his family's motto.
  • Healing Hands: Merlin, Kyle's Persona has Diarama, a healing spell.
    • None's sound magic affinity is healing.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Played with in the case of Graham, who although is certainly honorable, doesn't mind acting as a bandit and dislikes the obligations and alienation his title brings.
    Graham: "When I was a squire, I thought knights would fight dragons and slay giants. All we do is play chess and occasionally talk about horses and kiss the king's ass."
    • Gaston is a straighter example.
  • Lampshade Hanging:
    • After Sarah saves Lorenzo from thugs:
    Sarah: "Sorry, I'm not so good at this 'hero' and 'first responder' thing."
  • Laser Blade: Ellen is equipped by one, though judging by its effects, it may not be anything remotely related to a laser.
  • Limit Break: Ellen can only perform Bodies Upon the Gears or Zero Day on an enemy with at least one of her counters on them.
    • Gaston's Blade Dance and Eina's Blizzard are straighter examples.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Damn it, Elf.
  • Mage Marksman: Annabelle uses heat magic and powerful revolvers.
  • Mega City: Time-Space Administration Bureau-Administered Metropolis, or Outland City, or whatever you want to call it.
  • Moment Killer: Miranda barged in to arrest Dany when he and Ori were flirting in Bar 404 just before it went somewhere. Cue Ori turning into a monster to fight Miranda and Dany deciding to flee.
  • One Of These Is Not Like The Others: Ellen, a clockwork creature, Lizzie, a powerful necromancer, Jim, a courier from a post-apocalyptic world....and Fuuka, an Ill Girl Ordinary High-School Student from a school for the handicapped.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted with Elizabeth (Lizzy) and Lizzie.
    • Eldon Jaeger and Dany Jaeger have basically nothing in common with each other. Different players, different species, totally different abilities, totally different personalities.
  • Powerup Mount: Destrier, Graham's warhorse is this.
  • Private Detective: Miranda
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Sarah and Titan give one of these to Lorenzo after he reacts poorly to them saving his life. They don't do it that well. Gaston promptly delivers a much straighter and more competent example.
    Sarah: "I normally lecture on calculus, not behavior, but understand this. Unlike you, I am an adult and have been trying to act mature. Something that is very difficult when you have the nerve!"
    Sarah: "...That."
  • Shout-Out: Numerous. So far,
  • Sinister Scythe: Lizzie's Death Scythe.
  • The Six Stats: Subverted, during planning a similar system was considered but due to how vastly different the uses of stats between characters was, a five stat system with more names that reflected combat purpose rather than character traits (Physical Attack, Physical Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Agility/Dexterity).
  • Slice of Life: Remains as one though shows signs and potential of developing a plot.
    • The various characters working in Club 404 with Ori gone and Marie busy.
  • Standard Status Effects: Adhered to with varying degrees. Stun works as per normal, Berserk seems to be more controlled and Poison has additional effects that include CNS damage, liver damage, coma and cancer.
    • The bleeding wounds inflicted by the Geist when in Aspect: Delirium mode act closer to the typical poison effect. Burning is also a status effect inflicted by the Geist.
  • Stone Wall: All of Louie's stat points are in defense, he can only counterattack.
  • Summon Magic: Kyle's Persona.
    • Also, Andon's Schmerzgeist.
  • Sword and Sorcerer: To some strange degree at least. Lizzie summons two undead minions to attack a lich whilst Graham breaks into his house and flanks him.
  • Universal Poison: Averted, there are currently four different types of poison each with their own counter and with their own unique effects.
  • Vast Bureaucracy: The Time-Space Administration Bureau, which governs the main city (working title of Outland City, or TSAB-Administered Metropolis). While largely made up of decent people as a whole, they can be conveniently neutralized via infighting or paperwork.

How well does it match the trope?
