Matt Posted September 3, 2011 Share Posted September 3, 2011 What is Aberrant? Aberrant is a role-playing game from White Wolf Publishing focusing on the lives and exploits of paranormal humans. Set 10 years after radiation from an exploding satellite triggered bizarre powers in a fragment of the earth's population, Aberrant chronicles the struggles of these "novas", or "new humans", and their quest to fit into - or forever change - human society. System: Revised Storyteller System (d10) Setting: Earth 1998 - mid 21st Century Character: Normal people suddenly 'gifted' with unusual powers - think 'Unbreakable' movie. Powers?: Yep - manipulation of Quantum energy bestows some 'amazing' powers Superheroes?: Kinda. The yellow spandex brigade is possible, but not the norm. Anti-heroes?: Oh yeah. Some novas go very bad. E.g. Divis Mal, Geryon et al Organisations?: The Teragen, Project Utopia, The Directive, Elites and much, much more Books: Plenty, the books list to date is: Aberrant unlimited Ed., Aberrant Limited Ed, Aberrant Players Guide, Project Utopia, Teragen, The Directive, Elites, Aberrant Storytellers Screen, Worldwide Phase 1, Aberrant Year 1, Fear & Loathing, ReignofEvil.com, Church of Michael Archangel, XWF, Expose Aberrants. Metaplot?: Aberrant is the 'middle' game of the three Aeon Continuum games which chronicle the activities of the Aeon Society. Aberrant, if taken as 'Da Rulez!', leads to a war between humanity and 'Aberrants' in the mid 21st Century. The recovery from this war is the 'backdrop' setting for the Trinity game - the third and final Aeon Continuum game, set in the 2120's. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
