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!

DIGITAL REWARD! - and LOCK DOWN REMNDER
9 days ago – Fri, Sep 13, 2019 at 08:36:54 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

So many things going on right now! Lots of fun moving parts in this update!

Topics for This Update

   1. Digital Reward - ÆON ÆXPANSION Backer PDF
   2. LOCK DOWN Reminder
   3. Creature Collection
   4. Coming Soon!

ÆON ÆXPANSION

It's time for another Digital Reward Delivery! The BACKER PDF for Æon Æxpansion is now available!

REWARD DISTRIBUTION

Your link to claim your copy of the Æon Æxpansion PDF for Trinity Continuum: Æon will be sent out by our BackerKit pledge manager today. 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

Again, you will receive an e-mail from BackerKit with a link for the Æon Æxpansion Backer PDF today if it is on your expected list of rewards.

The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: https://trinity-continuum-aeon-rpg.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://trinity-continuum-aeon-rpg.backerkit.com/  You can also access your available DOWNLOADS from your BackerKit page, which will shortly include the Trinity Continuum Digital Wallpapers and Reference Screens!

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at https://trinity-continuum-aeon-rpg.backerkit.com/faq

BACKER PDF VERSION

This is the first version of the Æon Æxpansion to be released. We've sent you this initial Backer PDF for a few 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!

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, let's start this errata and correction process!

Onyx Path has launched a special ÆON ÆXPANSION Errata Form, which you can access here:

https://forms.gle/K8R7yEESGvSaKqqB7

Click to launch the Æon Æxpansion Ærrata 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 recent 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.

LOCK DOWN REMINDER

As announced back in Update # 55 - we are in the Lock Down phase of the post-campaign:

1. REWARDS WERE CONFIRMED on AUGUST 30, 2019. You can no longer make changes to your list of rewards.

2. PAYMENT INFORMATION HAS BEEN CONFIRMED AND PROCESSED TODAY  - For any additions you made in BackerKit, or any payments that did not process at the end of the Kickstarter campaign, please ensure your payment information is up to date, valid, and ready to be processed TODAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2019. I have instructed BackerKit to lock down and process all outstanding payments.

3. CONFIRM SHIPPING INFORMATION - Please ensure your shipping information is up-to-date with your expected address for October 2019. Please ensure that this information is entered and correct by SEPTEMBER 20, 2019. In one weeks time, I will take the shipping information we have for you in BackerKit and provide that to our fulfillment partners, so they can start picking and packing orders, with plans to begin shipping by the end of September and early October.

ADDRESS CONFIRMATION & DELIVERY OBLIGATIONS.

Consider this the final-week-from-fulfillment warning to update your information, after which point, you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as listed in our pledge manager system to the address listed in BackerKit, that title and risk passes to you upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment, and you are responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods. Failure to confirm mailing address prior to September 20, 2019 will be taken as agreement that all obligations have been met and no further action or effort is required on the part of Onyx Path.

(Of course, if you're getting digital rewards only, you don't need to worry about your address. This is just for the physical books and screens).

NOW ON KICKSTARTER

The Scarred Lands Creature Collection for 5E

Onyx Path Publishing has partnered with Handiwork Games to bring the best adversaries from the history of the Creature Collection to 5th Edition! The goal is to make a full colour, one creature per page, hardcover bestiary for the world’s favourite non-Trinity Continuum roleplaying game.

If you're looking for more monsters for your Fantasy roleplaying table, check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/339646881/scarred-lands-creature-collection-for-5th-edition-rpg


COMING SOON TO KICKSTARTER

You woke up… different. Someone changed you: on a slab, an operating table, an altar. By luck or by fate, you escaped. Hunted by your creators, they hold all the cards, and it seems they might recapture you. Except, what they don’t understand is they’ve stoked the fires of vengeance; what they did wasn’t right. What they don’t know is that now — you’re hunting them.

Deviant: The Renegades presents a game where the victims of experiments band together to bring down the monolithic organizations that twisted and warped them. Coming Soon to Kickstarter from Onyx Path.

SURVEY REVIEW & LOCK DOWN
30 days ago – Fri, Aug 23, 2019 at 11:09:51 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

Here's the announcement we've been waiting for:

IT'S TIME TO LOCK DOWN THE SURVEYS AND PREPARE FOR SHIPPING!!

Just to pause a moment in the middle of celebration, I ask that everyone reviews their BackerKit survey to confirm rewards and lock in information. Information below on how to access your Survey again, but key follow-up steps are:

1. CONFIRM REWARDS - I'll be locking down all Reward Lists, so if you wanted to add any additional rewards, please do so by AUGUST 30, 2019. In a week's time, I will lock down all reward lists and you won't be able to adjust or add anything after that time.

2. CONFIRM ALL PAYMENT INFORMATION - For any additions you made in BackerKit, or any payments that did not process at the end of the Kickstarter campaign, please ensure your payment information is up to date, valid, and ready to be processed by SEPTEMBER 13, 2019. In three weeks time, I will instruct BackerKit to lock down and process all outstanding payments.

3. CONFIRM SHIPPING INFORMATION - Please ensure your shipping information is up-to-date with your expected address for October 2019. Please ensure that this information is entered and correct by SEPTEMBER 20, 2019. In four weeks time, I will take the shipping information we have for you in BackerKit and provide that to our fulfillment partners, so they can start picking and packing orders, with plans to begin shipping by the end of September and early October.

ADDRESS CONFIRMATION & DELIVERY OBLIGATIONS.

Consider this the four-weeks-from-fulfillment warning to update your information, after which point, you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as listed in our pledge manager system to the address listed in BackerKit, that title and risk passes to you upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment, and you are responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods. Failure to confirm mailing address prior to September 20, 2019 will be taken as agreement that all obligations have been met and no further action or effort is required on the part of Onyx Path.

(Of course, if you're getting digital rewards only, you don't need to worry about your address. This is just for the physical books and screens).

SHIPPING UPDATE TO COME

This is all in anticipation of shipping around the beginning of October. I will send another update when the books are actually ready to go and will begin shipping, but we need to have this information locked down prior to that stage. If you find yourself in an unusual circumstance or your residence unexpectedly changes between SEPTEMBER 20th and the date I send out the shipping update, contact me to see what I can do at that time.

BACKERKIT REVIEW

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://trinity-continuum-aeon-rpg.backerkit.com/

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at https://trinity-continuum-aeon-rpg.backerkit.com/faq

I'll continue to monitor the comment section for this campaign and answer any questions that come up. If you have any issues or problems with other aspects of the project, you can let me know here and we'll figure out a solution. Additionally, I'll be forwarded any important questions that are sent in via the CONTACT ME button under the Rich's creator link on the main page.

I will send out our regular month-end update with progress on all rewards noted, as well as a reminder about BackerKit information lock down dates. Until then, continue on with the celebration and parades!

It's James, getting ready to ship another kickstarter reward!

July 2019 Update
about 2 months ago – Sat, Jul 27, 2019 at 09:19:05 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

Busy times! We're in the process of finishing up our latest Kickstarter for the latest system and setting expansion for the Trinity Continuum - Trinity Continuum: Aberrant. I'm sure many of you are over there, erupting with quantum power.

I'm also supposed to be getting ready to drive down to Gen Con, but I've got about a weeks worth of laundry to do first, and my car really needs to be cleaned out. Working on it! 

I'm also assuming we're really close to some major reward deliveries soon, and I'm expecting to begin the lockdown process sometime in August. Again, I don't have any specific dates, but looking at the Onyx Path monday meeting notes, I think we're awfully close...

(When we launch the lock down process - where we finalize orders, outstanding payments, and shipping info - I'll send a 6-week process countdown walking everyone through it, no worries!)

If you haven't been to DrivethruRPG lately, check your updated files to ensure you've got the final versions of Trinity Continuum Core Rulebook and Trinity Continuum: Æon

Gen Con 2019 Note
2 months 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.
