Well, I went and did it. Iíve heard about the release of Evangelion rebuild and I went and started watching the series again. As usual itís made me want to work on an alternative universe style of game. I was wondering if there was anyone else out there interested in playing in such a game if I were to run it? I have no intention of following the series to the letter, and Iím more then willing to allow players to use non cannon characters if they are reasonable in comparison to the cannon characters.
A few things of note, this will be a BESM game. Iím working on various templates for pilots and for NERV personnel. Pilots will have less points to spend, given their age and will be more limited in skills that they can take. Iíve attempted to run this many times before, and Iím sick of seeing every PC being a trained fighter, computer hacker, and what not.
Iíll help players make characters if they donít know the rules. I was also thinking of running this as a ďNormal gameĒ though if players demand it, I could be convinced to go light or bondage, but a bit of adaptation would have to be done, to make me feel comfortable running it as such.
Character Creation Rules (Non Cannon Pilots)
Basic 26 point character creation
All Pilots must possess the following traits
Own a Big Mecha 4 (Discounted 2 points per level so 8) * cannot be raised
Sync ratio 1 2 points (Will be described later) ** Can be raised to two
Connection 1 NERV 3 points * Cannot be raised
Owned by a megacorp
15 points left to spend
May take two levels worth of restricted traits
Combat skills are generally also restricted, as are skills that donít mesh with your average 14 year old. You may take 2 levels of combat skills as your restricted slots, or three levels of non combat skills as a restricted slot.
Cannon Eva Pilot are more high powered, and I will work with players who intend to play them so they have a a similiar feel from the characters from the show.
Nerv Employees 40 points to distribute as they see fit, within reason of course. Please no computer techís who are masters of Martial Arts.
Connection 1 (3 Points)
Owned by a megacorp
Like Pilots Cannon Nerv Employees will generally be more powerful then non Cannon.
