TRINITY CONTINUUM: AEON RPG

Created by Richard Thomas / Onyx Path Productions

The Trinity Continuum is a vast timeline of adventure, speckled with dramatic points across the past, present, and future, where heroes - or villains - arise. While each setting supplement will explore part of the Trinity Continuum timeline, these points in time aren't dots in a straight line - this isn't a long-form metaplot to be simply read aloud. Instead, they're points of quantum probabilities. Anything can happen, so it's up to you and your cast to make it happen!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Gen Con 2019 Note
12 days ago – Thu, Jul 11, 2019 at 04:31:15 PM

Hey Continuum Community,

Just wanted to throw a quick update out to let you know about Onyx Path and Gen Con 2019.

It's Gen Con James, ready to roll some dice.
It's Gen Con James, ready to roll some dice.

As you may have read in Onyx Path's recent Monday Meeting Notes blog, they won't have a booth in the Exhibit Hall this year. But that doesn't mean that Onyx Path won't be at the convention, or that you won't be able to pick up copies of your favorite games.

Instead, Onyx Path will be running seminars and game sessions, and leave the Exhibit Hall business to their sales partners - Studio 2 Publishing and Indie Press Revolution (IPR).

The Onyx Path team (Rich, Matt, Eddy, whoever else shows up...) will mostly be participating in the following panels during the convention: 

  •  Thursday 3pm – What’s Up With Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich Thomas version)
  •  Friday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Community Content? panel
  •  Friday 3pm – Freelancing with Onyx Path Publishing? panel
  •  Saturday 11am – What’s Up with Onyx Path Publishing? panel (Rich-less version)

In addition, there are some programmed game sessions in the Event Guide.

While most of the games are currently marked as sold out this close to the convention, it's always a good idea to double-check if you're really interested. There are sometimes drop outs if people aren't feeling well or are unable to show, and a handful of generic tickets can maybe get you slotted into a vacated chair.

Of course, there will likely be a ton of pick-up and casual games over the Best Four Days in Gaming, so keep your eyes open for anyone wearing a cool T-shirt! I'll be dressed just like my avatar (although it's a few years old now, so imagine with more white in the beard!) so feel free to say hello if you see me!

I'll be back with our regular month end update in 2 weeks!

ALSO: If you haven't re-downloaded your PDF files of Trinity Continuum Core Rulebook or Trinity Continuum: Æon from DrivethruRPG this week, do yourself a favor and update your files! The final books are out!! 

I believe this may be relevant to your interests...

Speaking of which...

March 23rd, 2018, N-Day — the day the world changed forever. Following the tragic explosion of the space station Galatea in orbit, people around the world began displaying superhuman abilities of an unexplained nature, starting with New York City firefighter Randel Portman, later known as “the Fireman.” In the days and weeks following, dozens more people manifested powers, leading to a worldwide state of emergency. It was soon clear that the world would never quite be the same again, as the miraculous and the extraordinary became the order of the day.

Now, ten years later, in 2028, the world is indeed a different place, but perhaps not as changed as some hoped or feared. Some two thousand people worldwide have “erupted” into what is believed to be a new evolutionary subspecies of humanity, Homo sapiens novus, commonly known as “novas” and less flatteringly as “aberrants.” Their presence and powers have changed the world and may offer hope for a better future, or a looming threat greater than any humanity has ever faced — or both.

Launching on Kickstarter on July 2nd at 2:00 PM EDT - TRINITY CONTINUUM: ABERRANT.

May 2019 Update
about 2 months ago – Wed, May 29, 2019 at 07:38:39 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

We had a pretty exciting update last month, with the release of In Media Res. This month is a little more quiet, just a lot of SOON memes...

We're absolutely getting closer! To a lot of things.


TRINITY CONTINUUM PROJECT STATUS UPDATES

Taken from the latest Monday Meeting Notes:  

First Draft:
- Trinity Continuum: Jumpstart   
- Trinity Continuum: Æon -  Terra Firma

Second Draft:
- Trinity Continuum: Æon -  Ready-Made Characters
- Trinity Continuum: Æon -  Jumpstart

Manuscript Review & Approval:
- Trinity Continuum: Aberrant 

Post-Editing Development:
- Trinity Continuum: Æon - Distant Worlds

Indexing:

Proofing:

Prep for Printer:
- Trinity Continuum: Reference Screen
- Trinity Continuum: Æon Reference Screen

Errata Process:
- Trinity Continuum: In Media Res
 

A lot of little moving pieces there. Kickstarter is difficult to format for lists, so I'm keenly aware of each little change since last month! A little more Æon on the schedule with the introduction of Terra Firma! And it looks like the Trinity Continuum Core book is getting a few layout tweaks as it moves towards the printing process. Also, we're getting closer to the Æon Æxpansion, so we may have two of our main Stretch Goals out fairly quickly, with relation to the main books! Great to see!

According to the Monday notes, Aberrant is having "Kickstarter art notes and contracts going out" so I'm hoping we'll have word of something exciting for next month!

REWARD: In Media Res Backer PDF Distribution
3 months ago – Fri, Apr 19, 2019 at 10:22:15 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

If you haven't been scouring the Onyx Path Monday Meeting blog notes recently, this post may be coming out of left-field, but it's time for another reward to be delivered!

During the campaign, Ian A.A. Watson discussed bits about his plan to rebuild Æon, Aberrant, and Adventure! into the Trinity Continuum, and the desire to start with a Core Rulebook that would provide something of a baseline-modern-day-action-adventure setting. One of the ideas that came out of the Stretch Goals during our campaign was the creation of a few short scenarios for the Core Rulebook setting, sort of a guide to what can be done in this part of the Trinity Continuum without the Psions and space adventure or the superpowers or pulp elements.

With your support, Onyx Path was able to add four starter scenarios to this book, and today it becomes available to backers!


It's on the way!

REWARD DISTRIBUTION

Your link to claim your Backer PDF copy of IN MEDIA RES for Trinity Continuum will be sent out by our BackerKit pledge manager over the next day. Since we are using our partners at DriveThruRPG as the host for this, you will need to set up a DriveThru account if you don't have one already. If you encounter any problems with downloading your rewards, please contact DTRPG's customer service to resolve the matter, they've always been top-rated for customer service. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/contact_us.php

BACKER PDF VERSION

This is the first version of IN MEDIA RES to be released. We've sent you this initial Backer PDF for three reasons:

1) To thank you for your support! You helped launch the new edition of this game and bring this into the world, and you deserve to see it first!  

2) So you can start playing Trinity Continuum! These scenarios are built to be used with the rules in your Core Rulebook backer PDF! It's real, and it's time to see some action!  

3) To make the final version the best it can be! The design and development teams have done their best to proofread and correct any errors and typos - but some always sneak through. If you catch any typos, incorrect math, visual glitches, and the like, we want to hear about them and correct them before we send the book off to print.

With that in mind, you get to be among the first backers to test the new errata and correction process! 

Onyx Path has launched a special IN MEDIA RES Errata Form, which you can access here:

https://forms.gle/fR2ycjynMQ13KQTJA

Click to launch the IN MEDIA RES Errata Form
Click to launch the IN MEDIA RES Errata Form

Generally, we try to keep errata collection open for the next 2 weeks, although they may be accessible a little longer due to the new nature of this method. Still, please report what you can as soon as possible to make sure we're getting everything covered.

We won't be collecting errata from other spots, just this specific form. Please note these threads will be for errata only - typos, incorrect math, page elements that overlap incorrectly, etc. It won't be for book discussion - you can do that in a different thread, or on the Kickstarter comments page.

Also, they already know about the Page XX notations - those are usually corrected after any changes are made and the books are being finalized. 

After any needed corrections are made (based on your feedback!), we will prepare an updated final PDF version of the book and you will receive a notice that you can re-download your file with the latest version. 

You've already made the game a reality with your Kickstarter support. Now you can make it even better by helping us crowdsource any minor errors and corrections.

It's James, your point person for this kickstarter project.

 Next week, I'll be back with our regular month-end status update, where I'll post our list of delivered and pending rewards with each update, so that we can track everything that's needed and keep on the same page. Also, feel free to check out Onyx Path's Monday Meeting Notes posts (linked here) which will give you a weekly status report on ALL of the projects Onyx Path has on the go (you may see spoilers for my monthly updates, or see what other kickstarter campaigns are currently running). 

Hope. Sacrifice. Unity.
