Re-Recruitment: Pilot Replacement applications

We will be taking 1 pilot replacement for Ambon.

Note that as the party currently consists of 1 Berserker, 1 Skirmisher, 1 AT Tactician, and 1 Pointman, there's no reason to feel limited in your choice of Career.

Here are the needed chapters of the Adeptus Evangelion book for creating a character. If you have these and the Dark Heresy core book, you should have everything you need to create a character.

Character Creation
Evangelion Generation
Modified Rules chapter (most of the Career Traits can be found here)
AT Field Chapter (find out what the AT Powers do here)
Combat chapter (useful misc. information about how battles work)

Also, be sure to download the attached document below ("House Rules"). It includes some important errata to the Backgrounds and Careers, and also has the new Evangelion generation charts that replace the old table system in this campaign.

Background Traits list the four background traits (2 positive and 2 negative) that you chose from your Background.

Assets and Drawbacks You must have at least 200 bonus xp, and may gain up to 400 bonux xp, from taking Drawbacks. Taking any Drawbacks above this number gives you no further advantage. You may also spend starting XP on Assets if you choose: try not to spend more then 600 xp on Assets. Your Career matters too!

Career Advances Instead of 400 starting xp, you will begin with 1000 xp (for a total of between 1200 and 1400 xp with Drawbacks factored in). You will still buy only Traits from your first Career Rank, as the Drawback xp doesn't count towards your rank. Show your work! Here's an example, including some pretty color-coding:

Fearless = 300 xp

Damaged Goods (+100 xp)
Duty of Care (+300 xp)

If you have any questions, please ask them in the OOC thread. Actually, changed my mind. Let's put debate and conversations about the applications themselves here mainly. Easier to keep track of that way. If you wish to submit a character with some sort of crazy dark secret or whatever, feel free to employ Private tags in this thread.

Finally, if you're a Reader who applies with a character here, don't be surprised if I temporarily revoke your Readership during the application process!

Trained for war
After years of simulated battles against
various Angel templates, you know where to
hit and make it hurt.
Gain Hatred(Angels) as the Talent from
Dark Heresy.
Know your enemy
Whenever you fail a weekly test for a Time
Management option, you are treated as

tiring yourself out.
Perfectionist
You are used to responding to authority

you gains a +20 to their roll.
Conditoned

Assets and Drawbacks

based skills involving the opposite gender. 100 Exp
Sexy voice
You have received tactical training
superior to that of the other pilots, and are

You technically outrank the other pilots,
though just barely. However, rank has its
privileges. Your starting gear, in addition to
the norm, includes a Nerv officer’s uniform
and a standard issue sidearm. Your rank and
tactical training grant you the Command
Skill (or Talented(Command) if you are
trained in Command already). In addition,
you gain a conditional Fate Point that may
only be used when working directly with
another Evangelion pilot under your
command. In this instance, you may choose

to trigger any use of a Fate Point normal for
your character, but instead grant the benefit
of the ability to another Evangelion on the

instinct, and will not disengage from combat
for any reason other than an Absolute Order,

History
: Your EVA is, as far as you know, literally the only thing standing between humanity and
utter extinction. You are the only one who can possibly save humanity, and if you fail mankind itself is
doomed. Whether or not this is accurate or just a cruel psychological ruse, whenever you are defeated
in your EVA take 1d5+1 Ego damage as the crushing weight of failure under so much pressure takes its
toll.
Last Hope
Frame
Your EVA features an advanced armor alloy that is incredibly just as durable as
the others while having a fraction of the weight and producing far less joint friction. If the program
that resulted in this marvel hadn't bankrupt itself on massive cost overruns, they might even have
considered retrofitting this prohibitively expensive system to the other EVAs. You gain a +10 bonus to
Agility in your EVA.
Lightweight Chassis
Body
Your EVA is different from all the rest, slightly smaller, thinner, and faster. It doesn’t look
so much like a hulking war machine as a colossal predator. It more than lives up to this appearance,
matching considerable speed with an instinctive economy of violence, and a thirst for killing that stays
in your mind for hours after you leave the entry plug. Your EVA gains +3 to WS and Agility.
Predatorial
Soul
Your EVA doesn’t seem to be entirely in synch with the world around it, and its senses
seem to occasionally pick up on things that simply aren’t there. Depending on how much you’re
relying on those senses at the time, this can be anything from a meaningless nuisance to a lethal error.
The first time you spend Fate for a reroll in your EVA each session, you must instead re-roll twice and
accept the worst result.

Notes on RadicalD's application (these are regarding mechanics only, I have not begun to read any fluff yet):

tips for your applicationCharacteristics Please show your math on the numbers here. For example:

Weapon Skill 20 + 18 (dice) + 5 (Simple Advance) = 43 [+10 to Attack only vs. Angels]
Ballistic Skill 20 + 15 (dice) + 5 (Trained for War) +5 (Simple Advance) = 43

It isn't always necessary to enumerate each benefit, but the two examples above are perfect places where you should do so. Make it as brainlessly easy for me to judge your character sheet to be mechanically sound as possible.

Career Advance XP table - you should include point expenditures for Assets and Drawbacks in this section for clarity's sake. The reason for this is that there is no rule stating that Assets and Drawbacks need to balance out; it's perfectly possible for applications to have, for example, 400 points of Drawbacks and no Assets, instead dumping all the points gained into Career. Factor in your Drawback points in the XP total that you build the character up to: In your case you should have 1400 XP to spend in total on your Career and Assets, assuming you don't remove any Drawbacks.

EVA Characteristics Same as the Characteristic notes above for your pilot. If you have a bunch of wacky modifiers enhancing or subtracting from characteristics, please show me your math. That way I can focus on the real reasons I want to pick characters, as opposed to spending my time retracing the steps of your homework.

Dice Roller error I carefully looked at your post edit history and frankly I'm not even sure what happened to cause this, but it doesn't smell fishy to me. Probably just Myth-weavers glitching out or a harmless error. I'll allow the rolls you currently have.

Team Leader This is quite alright with me, we don't have any characters with this Asset yet and it will certainly create an entertaining dynamic if the new Pilot we end up with has this.

EVA Colors A sort of Egg-shell off-white combined with a few deep shades of purple could make an interesting color scheme I suppose. I don't think that overlaps with anyone else, except a bit for EVA 13 if the purple ends up too prominent. Or, you could flip the Descriptor with the Color rolls and end up with... Dark Yellow and Neon Blue? Hmmm.


A lot of the above stuff are just things I could have been more clear about in the initial post had I spent longer carefully considering how to phrase the character application, but it was more important to me to get it out the door so people could begin crafting applications then agonize over all the details. You just happen to be the guinea pig as I have an actual sheet to look at and decide how I want it to appear . Make a few changes and we'll be happy.

We'll did the changes, removed a drawback that would have probably destroyed my ego barrier and synch ratio at the same time. And the only thing is about my writing it may not be all that good, It's been a lot of time since I really wrote a lot in english or used fancy words. It may seem different because I'm running a couple of games, but I sometimes tend to overlook some phrases or write, then think.

Uhh... another note: Dodge is pretty much useless in AdEva, when our AT field is more likely to protect us from anything coming at us than any Agility test. In fact, when we first started, most of us had Dodge.. but Dark let us trade it for something else if we wanted.

It's a bit more complex then that, especially once you get a few Battles into it. Angels will neutralize/roll a Positron-like test to ignore your AT Field all the time... the question becomes how soon in the challenge curve of the game this starts happening with much regularity. Player party-size is also a big factor, and actually plays a component in the "difficulty level" of Angel generation rolls. Not to say that an imaginative GM can't take the raw data of those charts and create something truly off-the-wall based on their personal knowledge of how to challenge the party.

When (not if, but when) it starts to become difficult for any but AT Field-overcharged Tacticians and Berserkers to resist the average Angel's basic attacks, the more martially-inclined Skirmishers and Pointmen may well wish for alternative options to avoiding attacks.

Hmmm... Sounds like I might be getting Dodge back later then, eh?

Sure. Agility is a cheaper characteristic to buy up then Synch Ratio as well for skirmishers, which will probably also factor into your decision eventually. There are advantages and drawbacks of course: nobody can Neutralize your Agility score, which is definitely a nice thing, and unless you are stunned into inaction it should be a pretty stable chance of evasion. Synch Ratio on the other hand can fly all up and down the charts in an absurd fashion, there are a ton of different ways to avoid, neutralize or otherwise defy the AT deflection roll, but it requires no Reaction and can be taken multiple times a turn.

For the first Angel or so unless your Synch Ratio is just plainly abysmal (ie. you are an Impact Survivor) then Dodge is a wasted skill slot when you could actually be doing something story-wise though.


How come I only found about this today? Why isn't there and ad up or something? (I'll post an application, soon. Can I re-use my old pilot idea or you didn't liked it? Be honest, you won't hurt my feelings.)
