"...I shall fear no evil."
Starting up again thanks to the players prodding the GM into giving it a shot.
Loss. It can drive people forward, just as easily as it can lead them down the path of despair and self-destruction, oftimes masking the road they believe themselves to take.
We must not be misguided.
The Second Impact caused devastation in an untold scale. It took away lives, histories, dreams and hopes for the future, leaving behind a void in those left that can never be filled, and the promise of an even greater menace.
We must not falter.
For the sake of what was lost, and what we may yet lose in these troubling times, we must fight tooth and nail... for if survival is still within grasp it is our duty to seize it, and if oblivion is to be our due... let it not be said we left no mark of our passing.
- Commander Hector Navarro, NERV Founding Speech.
The date is July 31st, 2020. Eight years ago, the world as we knew it ended. The cause was the event we now dub the Second Impact: a meteoroid collision of such magnitude that all but destroyed Antarctica, and whose immediate effects inflicted massive loss of life and infrastructure, plunging the planet into chaos. Over 500 million people died in the aftermath of the cataclysm and the lightning wars that followed, and further bloodshed ended only with the hastened signing of the Valentine Treaty, but the ecological repercussions would still be felt for years to come.
Yet the world rebuilt.
From the turmoil of the Second Impact humanity has emerged stronger: be it wisdom gained from suffering, or impetus bred by anger, regret and sorrow, they now stand ready to present a unified front against any adversity... but that alone isn't enough against the threat it will soon face.
In the massive, underground geofront at the Death Valley in California, USA, the U.N. sponsored paramilitary organization NERV readies the biomechanical Evangelions, massive war machines meant to be mankind's triumph card... or perhaps merely the means to a fighting chance, in the war that will decide the ultimate fate of all life on Earth.
