I'd really like to know more about this. It doesn't even have a page on the EvaGeeks wiki, but according to Mr. Horn, it contains the freaking Dead Sea Scrolls. I doubt they're that "official" or anything, but I'd really like to know what's inside. And, erm... know more about Iblis and Barakijal. And the Sixth Children, Maria Vincennes.

This thing's available from Amazon for under $50, so somebody buy it. Buy the heck out of it.

EDIT: No, wait. Don't buy the heck out of that one. Buy the heck out of THIS one: only $34 and with free shipping, even!

I own it.

It doesn't have a page on the Wiki because that's one of three thousand things I still need to get around to.

If there are Dead Sea Scrolls in there, they've managed to completely escape my notice so far.

It's a traditional pencil, paper and (presumably) funny-shaped dice RPG -- improvisational radio theatre or improvisational puppet theatre according to taste.

I've been keeping an eye out for this one, but first, is there an English version of it?

There's no English version. In the back of the Viz Eva novels it says it's a "rare" book. I bought it on ebay for under $10 a year or two ago. It's pretty cool. I just with I could read it so I could play it.

Bumping this old thread. I randomly came across some scans of this book so I did a bunch of research and created the page on the wiki.

http://wiki.evageeks.org/Neon_Genesis_Evangelion_RPG:_The_Nerv_White_Paper

So far, there's not much there, just some scans and bits about what's in the book. Anyone care to expand it?

I know that Eva Monkey has a copy now... because I sold it to him.

Has there been any progress in translating this thing, or at least finding translations that were done by someone off-site? The character of Maria Vincennes intrigues me.

On a different note, I'd like to draw your attention to a glaring mistake in the transliteration of Vincennes' first name. The katakana in this image are actually pronounced as Marii rather than Maria, therefore her name is not "Maria" -- or Mari/Mary, for that matter, since that one has a short i sound at the end, and the latter is typically rendered as Meari(i) in Japanese -- but rather "Marie".

So... Is there anything required to do before the name gets changed on the wiki?
