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!

REWARD: Digital Dice
8 months ago – Thu, Dec 06, 2018 at 12:06:53 AM

Hello Continuum Community,

It's digital dice day! (Try saying that three times fast!)

If you remember back to our kickstarter, two of the multitude of Stretch Goals we unlocked were:

 
And now, they can be fulfilled...

Step One: Install the App

The iOs version is available here: iOs OnyxDice App  

The Android version is available here: Android Version App

Once installed (or updated to the latest version, for those who already have it installed), those backers who should be receiving the Trinity Continuum digital dice as one of our Stretch Goal rewards can unlock the new dice.

Remember, these digital dice were part of the [BONUS REWARDS] so were automatically added to backers who are set to receive rewards from this category.

Step Two: Enter your Kickstarter E-Mail to Redeem

Click on the triangle to pull down the system menu
Click on the triangle to pull down the system menu
Select the settings option
Select the settings option
Enter the e-mail used for your Kickstarter account in the Redemption field and press ENTER
Enter the e-mail used for your Kickstarter account in the Redemption field and press ENTER

 Once you've entered your email address (make sure it's the one you had provided to kickstarter), you should get a confirmation on screen that you've unlocked a bonus die.

success!
success!

 
Step Three: Select Your Bonus Die

From the front page, click STORE to show all dice available

Remember to use the options in settings to customize your rolls to reflect your ruleset and difficulty options (there are two presets built in for quick selection, but you can customize with several options).

If the redemption process is not working for you, please check the following:

Is the OnyxDice Trinity Continuum Core D10 part of your rewards list? You can check on BackerKit for a complete list of rewards you should be expecting. 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 this reward is listed as part of your Reward Tier, double-check that you're using the correct e-mail address for redemption.

If the Digital D10 is not part of your rewards list as noted on your BackerKit page, you will not be able to unlock the Trinity Continuum Core D10 or Trinity Continuum: Æon D10 at this time.

If you should be receiving this reward but it doesn't appear on your reward list, or if you're not sure which e-mail address you should be using, contact me contact me via the Kickstarter Contact Creator button or post in the comments on this Update and I will work with you to solve the issue.

FOR ALL OTHER TECHNICAL ISSUES with the OnyxDice App, you can contact the developers at their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/OnyxDiceApp where they can help you out.

End of November 2018 Update
8 months ago – Wed, Nov 28, 2018 at 09:40:47 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

Off in the distance, just on the horizon, I can see Trinity Continuum PDFs coming, whispering... "soon..."

We're not quite to delivery of the backer PDFs yet, but we're getting closer. In fact, instead of showing off some of the art from the book like I did last update, here are some images of pages from the almost ready books...

 
These books are going to be awesome!

CHARACTER SHEETS

And, speaking of awesome, here are the official Character Sheets for Trinity Continuum and Trinity Continuum: Æon:

Trinity Continuum Core Character Sheet [link]

Trinty Continuum: Æon Character Sheet [link]

These sheets aren't fully interactive/form-fillable yet - that'll happen after backer PDFs are out and errata and corrections have been corrected.

Similar to last month, a big "soon..." cat meme implied. We do have one reward that's getting very close to being sent out, just a bit of debugging and final testing before it is released into the world. Hoping to have that for you within the next month...

Speaking of which (and answering why James is dressed as a vampire...)

 
Chicago lies at the center of the web that is the American heartland. Tendrils of power, wealth, and reward stretch outward, ensnaring the selfish, greedy, and unwary.  

Yet, Chicago attracts its predators, too.  

There are creatures that would have the city for their own, spinning their own webs of malice and intrigue. But among the city’s towering skyscrapers and wind-swept streets, who is the spider and who is the fly?  

Chicago By Night, an updated edition of White Wolf’s bestselling city book, will be Onyx Path Publishing’s first supplement for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition.

In this hardcover supplement, you will find descriptions of most of the Kindred inhabitants of Chicago, complete with 5th Edition write ups; the secret history of Chicago with detailed maps and geographical details; relationship details and factions; and dozens of encounters organized by theme, which provide Storytellers a means to make the setting come alive for the players.  

If you're interested in checking out the shadowy streets of Chicago, head on over and join us: Here's the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/chicago-by-night-for-vampire-the-masquerade-5th-ed

End of September 2018 Update

Hello Continuum Community,

This will be a really short update. Progress has been, and is being made on our two awesome books, but we're not quite at delivery stage for Backer PDFs yet.

It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.
It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.


So, this update that is basically, "Status normal, all systems working, proceeding well."

This is where I'd insert a "Soon..." cat meme if I could find one that fit the Trinity Continuum theme. Maybe one with three cats...

So, mostly this is just a quick update to touch base, keep us all on the same page (so that no one is missing anything or wondering what's going on with this campaign), and to let you know that we're getting closer.

End of August 2018 Update
11 months ago – Tue, Aug 28, 2018 at 09:55:58 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.
It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.


I'm sending out my end-of-August update a few days early. Hope you don't mind, we're in the process of getting the kids ready for another year of high school and the first year of college, plus I've got a wedding anniversary celebration to squeeze into the next few days. I believe that 22 years is the "Happy Emoji Text" anniversary, so it should all work out.

Not much to report on progress at this point - the advances are steady, and the work is ongoing. You can keep up with the latest developments in the Onyx Path Monday Meeting Notes, which lists the status of all currently announced projects at the bottom of the post.


Instead, I wanted to talk a bit about the Storypath system. As you know, it is the engine that powers the Trinity Continuum, from the Core rulebook to the Æon setting (and eventually the Aberrant and Adventure! settings as well). If you think back to an update during the Kickstarter Campaign, designer Eddy Webb talked about how the Storypath system was designed to work across many genres and manage various power levels. Work was begun on Storypath during the development of Scion, and further refined and fortified during the development of the Trinity Continuum.  

At Gen Con 2018, Onxy Path handed out a new brochure for the Storypath system, outlining the basics and demonstrating how the game can be adjusted to different genres and formats.You can download the Storypath system preview PDF for free at this link!

In addition to Scion and the Trinity Continuum, the Storypath system will also power upcoming games like They Came From Beneath The Sea!, and the subject of our current Kickstarter campaign, Dystopia Rising: Evolution.

I know the Trinity Continuum will handle a lot of diverse genres and settings itself - have I said how much I'm looking forward to Adventure! - I wanted to highlight Dystopia Rising: Evolution not only because it's currently Kickstarting and I want to spread the word as much as possible (as usual!), but because it's another take on the system we read in the manuscript previews for this project.

Dystopia Rising: Evolution is a new twist on a post-apocalypitc setting, combining many different genre elements from a Mad Max-ish aesthetic to a Walking Dead-like terror and enemy, along with a dash of X-Men-esque mutations. 

As full of action-adventure or horror tropes as that initially sounds, it also has something that was a big part of the Trinity Continuum as well - hope. There may be some rough patches after the Fall, and some threats and challenges - but this is a game that can also be about rebuilding and redefining society and community. 


Anyway, just before I break-out all of the rewards and the current progress, I just wanted to make sure I shared the info about Dystopia Rising: Evolution. Not only because it's my job (HEY! A Kickstarter!! Come See!), but also because I think the system and some of the themes may be interesting to those who've backed the Trinity Continuum. And, like we did with this project, we're posting previews of the playtest manuscript, and on Wednesday August 29th we'll be sharing the chapters on the Storypath system for this game.

So, if any of that sounds interesting to you - come check us out!
