  1. Awesome. Thanks for letting us know.
  2. When someone creates a game it is set to active by default. This setting controls whether it is displayed on the forum page. If your game ends or will go on hiatus, you can set it to inactive to remove it from the homepage. If you decide to start you game back up you can set it to active at any time. On the game's main page there is a button on the right side labelled "Manage Game." If you click that it will open a drop down menu. In the drop down menu select "Edit Game Settings." The Edit Game Settings popup will have an option for status, which has values of active or inactive. Just click the one you want and hit save to change the setting. When I changed the games app earlier this year it did not copy over the game owner, so many of the old games currently have the site as the owner. If you created a game and want to bring it back into active state and you are no longer listed as the owner, please PM me with the game name and I'll will switch ownership back you to. Please let me know if there are any questions.

    Fun stuff from the Interwebs

    I don't know that Solo looks good, but I did enjoy the Arrested Development treatment.

    The evolution of the Storypath system is tied to our work on Trinity: Continuum, a world of hope, heroism, and peril, and Scion, a world where the children of the old gods walk the earth. Early on, we found that both new editions of these games had similar system needs, because their characters are larger-than-life and fight in epic battles on a grand scale. We knew we needed a system that could accommodate everyday citizens on the street, superheroes soaring above skyscrapers, and gods of the sun and sky, but we also wanted rules to help facilitate the connection between the player-characters, their organizations (Allegiances for Trinity and Pantheons for Scion), and their values. To move forward, however, we needed to take a step back, because the first editions of Trinity: Continuum and Scion used custom variants of the Storyteller System which powered Vampire: The Masquerade and other classic White Wolf games. Despite the differences between those variants, however, at its core the Storyteller System was designed chiefly as a horror game for creatures that could be effectively fought by human opponents. In other words, the Storyteller System is great for vampires, but it didn’t excel at portraying superheroes…or gods! To us, this meant that the stories of these action-adventure games were hindered by their original systems. The Storypath System was designed as a new set of rules, inspired by the legacy of the Storyteller and Storytelling Systems, in addition to other story-centric rules. The Storypath System keeps the focus on narrative, story-built play, and action-adventure. It also draws inspiration from a number of other influences that focus on a cinematic high-octane action and storytelling, as well, to create a streamlined experience for epic stories. Within these pages, you’ll find a preview of the rules and examples for both Scion and Trinity: Continuum. We hope you enjoy the new Storypath System and are inspired to roll the dice and tell great stories! - Onyx Path Design Team

    Trinity Continuum EVERY AGE HAS ITS HEROES. Our modern world is fraught with dangers, from the products of mad science and corporate greed to the perils of lost civilizations. Fortunately, as many of the Talented will tell you, danger is their middle name, and the Æon Society is here to help them put things to right. The only constant in the world is change, and that’s where you come in. At long last, the Trinity: Continuum returns in this new edition with a new system and setting revised from the ground up. Talents: the subtle champions, daredevils of unparalleled skill and luck. Psiads: those able to employ the powers of their own minds to affect those around them. Novas: the stalwart few with the power to alter the very fabric of reality. These Inspired arise in times of need. Few of them will ever sit idly: they seem to be driven to act. Some will be crowned as heroes, others as power–mad aberrations. Which will you be? The Trinity: Continuum Rulebook will include: • The Storypath system • A modern introductory setting that’s packed with action and adventure • A full guide to playing Talents, their Gifts, and their various allegiances. Trinity Continuum: Æon In a world still recovering from a devastating war with horrifying mutated Aberrants, the last thing humanity wants to hear is that they’re are back, and they want Earth. Fortunately, Orders have arisen, each responsible for the creation of a specialized type of psion ready to combat the Aberrant menace. Will it be enough? A battle rages among the stars, and the psions are humanity’s best weapon. Trinity Continuum: Æon will include a: • Complete 22nd century setting featuring Earth’s first steps into the greater galaxy. • Guide to psions, the powerful artificially–created psi–users produced by the quixotic Psi Orders. • GM–centric material detailing some of the setting’s secrets and potential future fates.
  12. Aberrant RPG Mega-Attribute Enhancement: Universal Charm (Mega-Charisma) While Mega-Charismatic novas are famous for getting along with just about anyone on Earth; a nova with this enhancement can get along with just about anyone, period! Such a nova can interact well socially with any form of sapient being they encounter, no matter if it's a Zep scientist or Joe Schmoe from Cleveland. System: The nova's Mega-Charisma and most enhancements are equally effective against any type of sapient being. Mega-Charisma enhancements dependent on sexual appeal can't be used with most alien races, for obvious reasons. (The only exception to this would be the"weird-looking human" variety of aliens portrayed in the various Star Trek television/movie series and the Lum*Urusei Yatsura manga/anime series.) The nova also gains a -[Mega-Charisma] difficulty bonus on all social rolls for interacting with aliens, baseline humans, tainted or high-Chrysalis novas, psions, daredevils, etc. This enhancement is permanent, and has no quantum point cost. This is a part of the Aberrant RPG book Aberrant: Nexus. Aberrant is a role playing game that shares a common universe with the Adventure! RPG and Trinity RPG game lines. Download the sourcebook for Aberrant: Nexus.
  13. Aberrant RPG Mega-Attribute Enhancement: Credibility (Mega-Charisma) Prior to the Nova Age, most people had a reflexive disbelief of people and things that were beyond what their worldviews defined as "normal". As this attitude is found among humans in nearly all universes without publicly recognized paranormal beings, many novas who travel to parallel universes and to previous eras can find themselves dismissed as hoaxers and the like. While that's useful for keeping a low profile, occasionally a nova will need to shatter that reflexive disbelief. Certain novas have the ability to do just that. System: When activated, this enhancement will cause all non-Inspired beings in the nova's vicinity to take her, her words and her deeds seriously instead of dismissing them as some sort of hoax or hallucination. Inspired beings (and their equivalents) can make a contested Willpower roll against the nova's Mega-Charisma in order to avoid this effect. This enhancement costs 1 quantum point to activate for a scene. This is a part of the Aberrant RPG book Aberrant: Nexus. Aberrant is a role playing game that shares a common universe with the Adventure! RPG and Trinity RPG game lines. Download the sourcebook for Aberrant: Nexus.
  14. Aberrant RPG Mega-Attribute Enhancement: Universal Appeal (Mega-Appearance) Prerequisite: Two or more dots of the Shapeshift power A nova with this enhancement is retains his superhuman beauty (if sometimes in a weird way) no matter what form he assumes. While often provoking commentary on the nova's personality, this can provide a number of unexpected benefits - most beings don't feel threatened by something they consider beautiful. System: The nova's Mega-Appearance and most enhancements will apply in whatever nonhuman form the nova takes (unless the nova wishes otherwise), be it animal, alien, plant, mythological beast or inanimate object. Mega-Appearance enhancements dependent on sexual appeal are never "carried over" by this enhancement, for obvious reasons. This enhancement is permanent, has no quantum point cost and is only available to Mega-Attractive novas. This is a part of the Aberrant RPG book Aberrant: Nexus. Aberrant is a role playing game that shares a common universe with the Adventure! RPG and Trinity RPG game lines. Download the sourcebook for Aberrant: Nexus.
