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:

(Almost) August 2018 Update
12 months ago – Thu, Jul 26, 2018 at 04:48:09 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

We're a week away from the Gen Con gaming convention in Indianapolis, so I'm sending out the August update a bit early. If you'll be attending the massive convention running August 2-5, come visit Onyx Path at Booth 501 and maybe check out the What's Up with Onyx Path? panel to see what's planned for the next year(s).

Looking at the latest Monday Meeting Notes Production Schedule, it looks like there's a lot planned - In Media Res and Æon Æxpansion have both moved from redlines to second draft phase, and it's always exciting to see Trinity Continuum: Aberrant core rulebook listed on there!

Kickstarter Conceriege

One more quick note to remind you that I'm currently running Onyx Path's latest Kickstarter campaign - for the second edition of a game about second chances - Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition.


There's FIVE DAYS LEFT for the Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition Kickstarter and we’ve funded the project and achieved eleven Stretch Goals so far! Thanks to all of our backers out there spreading the word! We are in good shape to be able to make a great looking hardcover edition, and get that into stores, even while we’re giving backers first look at the complete text and other fun benefits: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/geist-the-sin-eaters-2nd-edition

Geist: The Sin-Eaters 2nd Edition includes all the rules you need to play as one of the Bound: Five Burdens reflecting the cause that pulled you back from the grave, five krewe Archetypes for building your own mystery religion, and the Haunts, Keys, and Ceremonies that provide the Bound with their macabre powers.  

It also includes the Chronicle of the Dead, featuring the Sin-Eaters’ struggle against the all-consuming Underworld and a variety of terrifying threats. In addition, for the first time in the Chronicles of Darkness line, ghosts are presented as playable characters.  

Like I said, the game is already funded, and now we're working at unlocking Stretch Goals - including additional rules and setting material in a Companion book, Memento Mori. If you haven't already, come by and check us out and hopefully join in on the fun!

Quick Summer Update
about 1 year ago – Thu, Jun 21, 2018 at 02:26:11 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

No big announcements, other than work proceeds on In Media Res and Æon Æxpansion, both of which are now listed on the Redlines phase of the Production Track in the latest Monday Meeting Notes from Onyx Path!

Final Hours of Fetch Quest

I did want to touch base while there's still a few hours left in the latest Onyx Path kickstarter campaign for the Fetch Quest card game.

 
Fetch Quest is a family-friendly cooperative deck-building game. Each player represents a pioneer on a dangerous quest. The pioneers work together to overcome dangerous challenges and resolve missions. Once the missions are resolved, the quest is finished and the players win the game. We're running this Kickstarter to get additional new art for the cards and get the project printed in a form we can put into stores.  

The game is already funded, and we've added alternate Cat pioneer cards and a community content program. With only a few hours left, if you think you may be interested, now's the time to jump on it: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/fetch-quest-a-deck-building-game-in-the-realms-of

June 2018 Update
about 1 year ago – Fri, Jun 01, 2018 at 12:23:46 PM

Hello Continuum Community!

A pretty quick update for June 2018, just touching base to make sure communication is constant and consistent. 

No big updates for this post, other than telling everyone that today is Ian A.A. Watson's birthday! Feel free to wish the Continuum Grand Poobah a HÆPPY BIRTHDÆY Trinity Style at the Onyx Path Facebook page, on Ian's Twitter, or at the Onyx Path Forums

Kickstarter Concierge

Just a momentary break to let you know that I'm currently running Onyx Path's latest Kickstarter campaign - for the family-friendly card game, Fetch Quest.

 
Fetch Quest is a cooperative deck-building game. Each player represents a pioneer on a dangerous quest. The pioneers work together to overcome dangerous challenges and resolve missions. Once the missions are resolved, the quest is finished and the players win the game. We're running this Kickstarter to get additional new art for the cards and get the project printed in a form we can put into stores.

You can check out the Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/fetch-quest-a-deck-building-game-in-the-realms-of

And if you want to learn more about the game, creator Eddy Webb goes through all the rules here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDKnKAtmTxI

The game is already funded, and now we want to dig into building our "booster pack" of cards, including adding cat pioneers from the Monarchies of Mau and opening the game up to allow Community Content and home-brewed expansion.

A Stretch Goal Reward Arrives In Style
about 1 year ago – Fri, May 18, 2018 at 06:33:52 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

When creating your Trinity Continuum character, choosing your Allegiance can be a fun part of the process! And now, you can show off your Kickstarter Allegiance in the real world with our next reward - fulfilling one of our Stretch Goal achievements.

For a limited-time, this Kickstarter-themed Trinity Continuum T-shirt is available for discounted purchase at the Onyx Path redbubble store.

If you click on that link, you'll be able to purchase a 0% mark up shirt (that means, you're just paying the cost of manufacturing and shipping) to show off your continuum style. Also note that you can modify the color and shirt style, so you could possibly get three different shirts to build a Trinity wardrobe!

This price will run for a limited time only - from today until May 25th, so act quickly.

- James

May 2018 Update
about 1 year ago – Wed, Apr 25, 2018 at 09:38:32 PM

Hello Continuum Community,

Yes, it's still April. Yes, this is the May update. It's coming a little early, but feel free to re-read it again in 6 days to make it more official. :)

Short Update: LOTS of stuff going on in the Trinity Continuum, but mostly things that will pay off in the future. Foundations have been built for things to come, and now attention can move back to the present and we'll get this machine running. So, stay tuned, more updates likely later this month (well, May... the real May... later in May).


Long Update:

Back in the middle of March, just a few weeks after the Trinity Continuum kickstarter campaign ended, I attended Breakout Con in Toronto. Despite throwing e-mails and memes back and forth, this was the first time that I met Ian A.A. Watson in person! We were both still pretty exuberant from the success of the campaign and grabbed a bite to eat.

As you know, Ian was the main, LONG time driving forces behind the rebirth of the Trinity Universe, and it was great to see how energized he was by the Kickstarter and how excited he was about the future of the Trinity Continuum. As we talked about the project, knowing how long he had been working on it, I expressed my sympathy for what I assumed would be another few years before the next major phase, Aberrant, would be realized.

"I wouldn't be so sure of that!" That's when Ian told me that movement was already happening on Aberrant, and that soon Steve Kenson would be announced as the Lead Designer for the project. I was stunned, and super-happy. I may have clapped. Not only was the project moving along at a much faster pace than I had assumed, but Steve was possibly my number one dream choice to have work on the project. He's pretty much the expert on superhero RPGS, having had a hand in ... well, just about every one that I could think of.

And now that I see Aberrant 2nd Edition appear on the Onyx Path project development track, and see Ian's excitement about the team they've assembled for this project, I'm so eagerfor the future.  

In related excitement, looking at the project development track, you will also see the Æon Æxpansion and In Media Res supplements on the list. So rewarding to see everything moving forward.


The flip side to all that news: locking things down and getting those projects moving has kept everyone pretty busy, so I might be a few weeks later than I had hoped in getting some of the initial rewards out. Don't fret - I'm on it, and expect a few updates over the next weeks full of Trinity Continuum goodness. (Or, at least, a link to the redbubble store and hopefully some PDF bundles).

SO: Your patience is appreciated. Honestly, the work done now (on all projects mentioned) will have huge payouts in the future.

Total aside - Ian also showed me a ton of original illustrations from original Trinity/Æon books. Like, originals back in the drawing on paper days. It was awesome to flip through those images and hold what I can only describe as an artifact. I flipped through the pages quickly, taking them all in - I knew that if I had gone slow, I would have been tempted to grab it and run. Really.


Kickstarter Concierge

As the Onyx Path Kickstarter Concierge, I'd also like to take a moment to let you know we're in the final 24 Hour countdown for the latest project, Dragon-Blooded: What Fire Has Wrought for Exalted 3rd Edition.

 
This campaign will be funding the creation of a deluxe, hardcover version of this book, and has already achieved 500% of the initial funding target! Unlike the Trinity Continuum project, the campaign is not intended to launch this book into traditional distribution - backing this Kickstarter project will be the only way to get the deluxe hardcover from Onyx Path. As of this morning, we've hit a whopping 30 Stretch Goals and assembled an incredible Dragon-Blooded Companion supplement as well.

If that's at all intriguing, or you just want to see what the fuss is about, you've got about 24 hours to check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/dragon-blooded-what-fire-has-wrought-for-exalted-3
