About This Game

Within an alternate universe of Evangelion a group of pilots and an operations director play a game of saving the world from over wordily entities, become spies and try not to have mental break downs. The game will be a split of big mecha fights, some mini dungeon crawls and some social events. This is a game using the Ad Eva 2.5 system (a fan made add on for Dark Heresey). The game will be based in a heavily modified Evangelion universe, using the anime/story as a spine. Many things will be different, do not assume anything. An expected rate of posting will be 2-3 posts a week. Some house rules will be introduced to ensure the flow is maintained in and out of combat.

Detailed Description

Many of us know the story of evangelion, a world where young pilots are pitted against the Angels, creatures of bizarre creation and absurd power.


This is a game where you take the role of one of those pilots in an alternate universe. The amount of information available at the recruitment process is limited, though upon acceptance the players will be added to roll20, where various journal of NPCs and world knowledge will become available. Along with where battle maps will be hosted.



What is known is the following.

Roughly ten years ago the Androsk asteroid tore through the sky and slammed into the north pole, obliterating the ice caps and flooding much of the world. The arrival of this asteroid was not a surprise, months prior news articles were released with people debating its severity. When people finally decided it required urgent action it was already too late to do anything.


As expected, many died in the initial disasters, and even more died as wars broke out for dwindling resources and land.


Three years after the asteroid (7 years prior to the game) the entities begun to emerge, creatures of size and strength never seen before. When the first one appeared it begun to lay waste to Berlin, this was when NERV first appeared and quickly became a public name. Along with their units, the Evangelions and AEGIS.


For the last seven years NERV have worked outside of any one country’s control, but funded by almost every remaining country of note. They are the defenders and researchers of these entities, without them life would have ended seven years ago.


However, whenever a group gets too powerful people begin to get worried and concerned. You are a young pilot who is about to be enrolled into a new team in NERV, however you have ulterior motives. Acting as a spy you are sent in to work for NERV and save the world, along with completing missions for your true allegiance.


The first mission being to find out what project Red Kite is.

  1. What's new in this game
  2. I will reply tonight, but I'm going to defer to security and Comnander Heather due to the facts of an unsecured location and the fact that I as a Player don't know enough to functionally answer Anya's questions about most of the NERV assets and Entities.
  3. The image of a 13 years old girl asking for a strong black coffee made me laugh, very funny
  4. Although not fully sure what to expect, Anya is content to follow the lead of the two superiors as she would be more used to the training. She would order a strong black coffee, being slightly tired from the flight still, and a full English following the recommendation.   "If we and the Evangelions are limited military assets, is NERV London equipped with any support capabilities? - And If I may ask, how many other pilots and Evangelions are there across the other branches of NERV?" Anya would pause for answers, before asking the next question. "What can you tell us about these entities?"    
  5. There are three now.   Sure I posted this earlier, maybe I dreamt it. But the last player accepted has been afk and zero response.
  6. wait a second, have we lost a player? are there three or four pilots?
  7. I think the whole game is going to be a lot of 'can i trust what this person is saying'  
  8. That's good, however I fear it will be hard to be honest in a group of spies, everyone is lying/hiding something. I do like Serena ooc, it's just that she and Zelda are kind of opposite
  9. Serena is trying to be honest. Since she sees everyone as being stuck together in a military unit, she does not intend to lie to her subordinates.
  10. Funny you said that, you made it clear since silver first speech that she wasnt the top choice as OD, that would have been Zelda unfiltered opinion(but calling silver unqualified in front of the commander is too foolish, even for Zelda, maybe she'll complain privately) So the OD is a spy too. Edit. If shooting start out of Evangelion Zelda will flee lol  
  11. Serena looks Zelda as much in the eyes as possible when one half of the conversation is wearing mirrorshades, and speaks in a calm, deliberate manner. "You are the most important military asset in several hundred kilometers." Serena pans her head between the three Pilots, including the other two Pilots, including them. "You three are the sole operators of the Evangelions assigned to London, the only weapons so far found able to reasonably effectively fight the Entities. You three are literally irreplaceable. I can be replaced by Commander Heather or Vice-Commander Broome, or probably even Heather's Assistant Josh Stand, in a real emergency. Commander Heather has a back-up in the form of Vice-Commander Broome. All the Department Heads have clear lines of succession." Serena takes a breath. Serena then continues, continuing to look between the three Pilots. "There are no back-ups for any of you. So that is why, Zelda, so much precaution and security is being taken with each and all of you. You will each have a security team, as well as a supervising Pilot Protection Division, led by Greg Wheatly, who I believe you all are scheduled to meet. The intent is to be as low-intrusive as possible while still ensuring your security. I'll tell you straight up, and if you want to get an override from Commander Heather, go ahead, I certainly will not take it personally, but if it comes to your security or your voluntary personal activities that Security thinks are a risk, I will side with your security. You're military assets now." Serena sighs, pinching her nose, before looking back at the three Pilots. "Which, when I raised my right hand and swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic in Nineteen-Ninety-Two, I certainly didn't think I would leading a unit of child soldiers in giant mecha to save London. So, I'm not going to try to micromanage your life, Zelda. But there will be military training. Basic levels of fitness, Evangelion escape and survival drills, real-life fighting skills, which I'm given to understand carries over due to the nature of how the Evangelions work, that sort of thing. In return, I will back you in reasonable requests for recreational activities, dates out, good food, and do my damndest to let you live a normal life while giving you the skills to survive whatever comes to kill you, giant mecha problem or human problem. There are, from my understanding, already groups opposing the use of Evangelions by children, and there have been attempts on other Pilots. Hence the security. I could be mistaken. I've been playing catch-up trying to drink from a firehose as a last-minute replacement for the last Operations Director, just like you all are replacing the last Pilots. Unlike you all however, I barely qualify for my job and am playing catch-up. I'll be honest, I intend to do my best, but I'm not ever going to be a conventional Operations Director. I come from the wrong military background for that. Questions, comments, further concerns from anyone? Ask anything not classified. We have to live and work together, you have a great deal of latitude about what I will answer with all of you." Silver's head swivels between the three Pilots.

  12. @Neopopulas You would laugh your ass off to see Captain Serena Silver's Character Sheet. She is an excellent example of her background, and fits her background story great, but really is one of those "grabbed first person meeting minimal requirements and with appropriate clearances and stuck them in assignment" as an Operations Director. She makes a pretty good spy, though. If shooting starts outside of an Evangelion, hiding behind her is a perfectly appropriate response until she gets you all trained up.
  13. Silver's speech give Zelda bad feelings, she can immediately tell they will have problems, to her the captain seem a control freak, one who mark tightly, a stubborn bulldog that will make her espionage mission.... complicated, Zelda will need to be as slippery as an eel. Zelda pass on the breakfast, she follow a diet. Serena has encouraged them to speak, it take Zelda a non trivial amount of willpower to not express her unfiltered opinion, annoying their nanny on the very first day would be a mistake. "i do have a question" she say, both at Silver and Heather, who will answer is indifferent to her, as long as someone answer. "armored humvees, guards, escort vehicles, constant radio communications, always on alert, armed security at our arrival, our OD who talk about pilot's security and the...strange...idea to give us military style training...I wonder, are you aware of other threats to NERV or specifically to us, beside Entities?" And then she fail to resist "also...a concern, i dont like it when people try to micromanage my life" she say, specifically at Silver.  
  14. Emiko Wounds: 0/12 | Fatigue: 0 | Ego Barrier: 35/35   A quick look at the watch on the inside of her left wrist and she nods. She ends up taking the suggestion for breakfast and though her English is unmistakably accented, shes clearly well trained in the language. Once everything is said though she is slightly at a loss, she's not entirely clear what sort of situation this is, if this is casual or official and with so many high ranking positions in the same room she's being cautious about how to proceed.
  15. Stats will become more open as the game goes on, so don't worry too much Neo. Especially in combat, after about a round or two people will likely know everything they need. I have just remember, I am away on a trip from wedensday even till sunday. Meaning I won't be able to post IC, but will be able to OOC on the phone. Thankfully, this is very much a chat scene, so you guys can easily take the thread forward without me as you see fit.
  16. [private=Rudra]Conversation with the security is a mixed bag, the driver keeps to himself, focused on the road. The other two security members remain polite, and professional, but never shutdown your conversation. They, normally, don’t look at you both at the same time, there is almost always one looking out the window or speaking something into his small mic piece. You learn that the driver is called Joe Sutton, the most talkative guard is Connor Dias, and the quieter guard is Tamas Kassava, his accent is certainly not British, but it is hard to place but likely eastern European. They tell you that NERV-London is big, spanning all three zones underground and covering some small parts of the ‘ruins’, officially named zone 4. They make it clear you need to get use to moving around underground, as it is very much a maze, almost a city in its own right. A person they mention as being worth getting to know is Jason Walker, part of R&D, they say he can be a bit rough at first but his heart is in the right place. Along with Chris Kumar, who is a great laugh and good at his job, though for some people can be a bit too much. When you enquire as to who Chris is, they clarify he is the bridge team lead, and will oversee the crew who directly interact with you when inside the Mechas. When you ask about interesting news they don’t say much, only that Serena coming in as the new OD is going to bring a host of changes of which people are currently unsure exactly what they would be. Though it’s not like they could just leave the OD position open. When pushed a little more on the OD situation, they say nothing more.[/private] A drink at Audrey's The commander can’t help but smile as Serena hands over the hundred pound note, “here I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to afford meat this week.” As he takes the note he holds it up to the sun for a moment, checking if it was a fake. “Can’t trust anyone these days.”   As the pilots roll out the Commander gives each of them a polit nod as they introduce themselves, he then remains quiet as Serena goes on explaining a number of expectations for the girls.   Eventually you are all within the café, the five of you taking up a table of six. “Feel free to get some food, or drink.” As the commander speaks an older lady, the waitress, walks across casually, dressed in a simple black shirt and jeans with the word “Audy’s” sewn across the front, the name of the café.   “Morning Susan, I will get the regular to drink, but no food as I am…” he glances at his watch, “going to be moving soon.” The woman smiles as she hands out some menus to each of you, while nodding at the commander’s drink order.   As she hands the menu to Emiko she smiles again and says “I fully recommend the fully English, we don’t hold anything back on it.” The commander nods to himself a little as she says that, clearly recalling a rather large breakfast. “I will give you a few minutes, unless you have come prepared?” She then stands relaxed at the head of your table, with a pad and pen ready if needed.   Once Susan is done she gives you a nod and walks off, leaving you with some peace and quiet.   “NERV-London can be a bit…oppressive, being underground, so it’s nice to get top side more often than not.” He takes a moment to glance around each of you, “I wanted to welcome each of you personally, I reviewed all of your files and as you can guess had one of the final says in you being here. You, unfortunately, have a fair amount of work ahead of you, which I will let Serena fill you in on when I leave.” He once again glances at his watch.   “As you know, I am the highest point of the chain in NERV-London, and Serena reports to me directly. If you have anything you need, or want, you can go to her, but if you have issues with her then you can tell me.” Those last few words were not said with any hint of a joke as some of his previous comments.   “You will have my office pointed out to you as you tour the facility, but I have told Josh, my secretary, to keep you all as VIPs in my books. If you need me, to talk, put forward ideas, or anything. Then my door is open, I might be busy, but if vital I can and will make time.”   As he finishes his sentence Susan returns with his drink, and any others ordered, he gives her a word of thanks before turning back to you.   “You will meet a lot of people, but I don’t expect you to learn who everyone is in a few days. Take your time. I will be arranging a small buffet meal for you all tomorrow night, a number of the department heads and team leads will be present, giving you an opportunity to put faces to names. Along for them to finally meet the pilots they have heard so little about.”   He leaves a few moments of silence, allowing anyone to step in, be it with questions or comments.  
  17. Guess I'll di some random rolls once in a while to throw you into confusion 😁
  18. God my OCD is dying for me to see peoples stats. Sure i'll get an idea once people start rolling but i always find that stats help give me an idea of what a character looks and acts like, and also knowing nothing about how the other characters work is so hard for me lol
  19. Not going to poke the powerhouse lol, Zelda has really low strength hehe
  20. There's some...odd things...going on with Silver. But the pictures are interpretations. But, yes, she is 49 but looks younger and weighs more than she looks, with (if you dare to poke her) solid muscles. Use the pictures and the apply the description. The GM got a series of pictures representing her throughout her life. And, yes, she, wears mirrored sunglasses in most circumstances. You want to know why, ask IC.
  21. Anya would have had a relatively short flight before the car journey. Dressed in her standard base uniform, watch on her right wrist and scarf loosely around her neck with her hair in a single plait as always. She would have politely greeted the escort upon meeting them, following their instructions as advised. Most of the journey was spent taking in the surroundings, watching the guards and driver too when they were not looking, occasionally writing notes in her notepad. Not speaking much at first, she would have gradually eased to speak to them if they tried to make conversation. As she arrives, she thanks the driver and guards, before turning to face Commander Heather and Captain Silver. Taking a very formal stance to address the pair, "Commander. Captain. Anya Links, pleasure to meet you. Anya would then greet her fellow pilots, "Hello, I'm Anya, nice to meet you", making sure to make eye contact with each to give a slight nod and slight smile too. She would be surprised to see all girls in the team, but also somewhat relieved. Anya would make her way into the cafe as suggested. At the same time her eyes would be darting between the Nerv personnel to observe them.
  22. I'm a bit confused by Silver's picture, the profile say she's 49 years old, redhead , 75kg of muscles(roughly a super middleweight class) is it wrong/outdated information?  
  23. A solidly-built Caucasian female with her head in a sturdy head scarf watches the Pilots--her Pilots--arrive. It's a little hard to tell where exactly she is looking, as she is wearing mirrored sunglasses, even on this overcast and mildly rainy day. She is in NERV Fatigues, unlike every other adult around, wearing a green beret, and her fatigues and beret are drying in the heat of the cafe, as is her securely wound head scarf. Her H&K USP .45 ACP Pistol is tactically holstered to her right thigh, several spare magazines are strapped to her waist, a tactical flashlight is also strapped to her waist, a tactical combat knife is sheathed on her left thigh, and an extensive combat medical kit is strapped to the back of her belt, all NERV issue. It is clear from the stains on her fatigues that she was not expecting to be greeting her Pilots right now. Her head scans from each pilot to pilot, then pulls out a crisp hundred pound note out of one of her fatigues' numerous pockets and hands it to Commander Heather. "You were right, boss. They managed to send us all girls. I figured they would break it up just a little per regulations, but they took the alternate configuration out." After looking over her four Pilots once more, she speaks to them. "I am Captain Serena Silver. You all may call me Serena, we're going to be working together to save our little slice of the world after all. The only times I'm going to insist on my rank are if you are being disciplined or if inspectors from higher NERV are around. I come from a small unit tradition, so I intend for us all to work together to improve and help each other. I'm new to this position, so if you have questions or comments, I'm open to them any time outside of combat, to include simulations. I'm your primary supervisor, so if you have an issue, I want to hear about it first. I fully want you all to help each other, but I have tools you do not, so I need to know your issues. I am not going to judge; in between my time in the military and NERV, I've just about seen--and dealt with--it all, so you're not going to shock me, and you're only going to anger me if you do not tell me. Also, Security is here for your protection. Do not ditch them. Had to do way too many retrieval ops on Pilots that ditched Security. Also makes Greg Wheatly and Kirsty Spade have bad days, and the former doesn't deserve that and the latter has no sense of humor. But mainly, stick with your security and tell me about your issues. If I cannot help, I will find out who can. Lastly, before we eat some food...I believe in training. You will maintain at least a B average in school, and if you have trouble with that, I will arrange help, as well as participate in military-style training outside of Evangelion cockpits. I'm given to understand it helps with performance inside the cockpits, and it makes you harder targets outside the cockpits. Don't worry, I'll make sure the food is good if I have to pay the cook myself. Questions, concerns, comments? I encourage you to speak, please." Captain Serena Silver Wounds: 13/13 Ego Barrier: 35/35 Fate Points: 3/3 Fatigue: 0 Insanity Points: 0  
  24. Zelda's trip is probably the shortest, she live 4 - 5 hours away, the humvee is a blessing as she has a lot of luggage, the two personal guards feel a bit excessive but it's kind of awesome, she does take a selfie before getting on the car, bonus points if the guards join in, but she doubt it. During the trip she try to strike a conversation with the other passengers, asking their names, where are they from, what is their job at Nerv; they already know her name and place of birth, likely her role too, if not she will jokingly inform them they are carrying a princess; this is just to save time, sooner or later everyone ask -zelda? like the princess!- so she can as well be the one, it's a good way to pass the time. She will tell them she is newbie, first time visiting the London's NERV base, she will ask them if they have tips, who are the cool people, who better to not mess with, what is like living there. She will pay attention and treat the two guards as people, not background figures of no importance, this trip is probably boring for them too so she make an effort to make it pleasant. In the second part of the trip, once the conversation is over, she will pull on her headphones and listen to some music, she's a bit nervous and this help her relax. London is a sad sight, a shadow of what it used to be. As she step out of the Humvee, she feel like a VIP..no wait, she is a VIP, theres an expensive car, guards and the base commander himself crawled out of his bunker to greet her...and the three other pil....girls? all girls? she look at them with a surprised expression then shift her focus on the commander, getting distracted during his speech would be rude. As the humvee leaves she realize she hasnt thanked her escort, will do it later, they have her luggage as hostage. Zelda is dressed casual: sneakers, flared black jeans, an hoodie with the image of an anime character(hood down) and her headphones, literally her most precious possession since these cost more than her smartphone, rest on the back of her neck, the humvee left before she could stow them away. "Hi, I'm Zelda Hooper, pleased to meet you " is her reply at Heather, as she rehearsed this line over and over to make a good impression? yes, she did.
