Aberrant: Children of Quantum Fire - Rules and Setting - The Exalt! Organization

Shosuro Miren

Recommended Posts


Exalt! is an organization dedicated to helping individuals discover and pursue their passions, their selves, pushing themselves to the limits they think they have, and then helping them break through to greater understanding and being.

The Exalt! Headquarters Building


The Exalt! Headquarters Building is situated between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in the heart of Manhattan on Central Park South, New York City. The hotel is located at walking distance from Broadway, Fifth Avenue, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Times Square (15 blocks), Carnegie Hall (1 block), Radio City Music Hall (8 blocks) and Lincoln Center (5 blocks).

The Exalt! Headquarters Building is located less than 12 miles away from JFK Airport and 15 miles from Newark Airport with nearby access to New York’s sophisticated subway system.


The historic Jumeirah Essex House first opened its doors in October 1931. Sharing its birthday with Rockefeller Center’s first building, at the time of its construction it was the tallest tower in New York and to this day remains one of the city’s premier Art Deco masterpieces of the 1930s. The Essex House was one of the first hotels in New York to offer a ‘Sunday Brunch’ for walkers in Central Park during the 1930s and many celebrity guests have stayed in the hotel throughout the many years the hotel has been in operation.

The hotel was bought by the Exalt! organization in late March of 2027. Renovations are currently being undertaken to modernize the historic hotel into a headquarters for the organization, though the main public areas have so far been left in their Essex House style.

Structure and Design

The Exalt! Headquarters Building overlooks Central Park, towering 44 floors from street level to the top of its tower.

Public Restaurants and Bars


Gateway boasts a separate street-level entrance and the largest fireplace in Manhattan underneath a massive skylight. Gateway offers an outstanding and varied cuisine from all corners of the world, with newly discovered chef Tamariah Johne.

The Lounge

Located just off the main lobby, The Lounge offers a savory selection of culinary delights, including appetizers, entrées and sandwiches, in a setting of Art Deco style and ambience. Afternoon Tea can also be enjoyed daily between 2pm and 6pm.

Private: Exalt! Dining Hall

Previously known as The Restaurant at the Essex House, the Exalt! Dining hall is open for breakfast, lunch or dinner in a beautiful newly renovated Greco-Roman setting. The Dining Hall is available only to Exalt! members and their children.

Conference and Banqueting Facilities

The Exalt! Headquarters Building features unrivalled conference and banqueting facilities in an elegant setting including 16 distinctive meeting rooms and executive boardrooms, The Grand Salon with a seating capacity of up to 450 people and for smaller functions or receptions, the building’s Petit Salon provides a more intimate setting for events of up to 150 guests. The Exalt!’s dedicated planning staff oversee even the smallest details of events including audio visual and production services with the latest technology, to suit all needs.

Business services include a Business Centre offering secretarial services and private offices, video conferencing services and high-speed Internet access in all meeting rooms.

Health Club and Spa

The Exalt! Headquarters Building spa facilities include a dedicated relaxation lounge, personal training, sauna and steam bath, a selection of massage treatments and other pampering options using only environmentally responsible products, including an extensive selection of hypoallergenic products.

The Exalt! Headquarters Building also features a fully equipped fitness center with available gym memberships for the general public.

In addition, Exalt!, in association with CentralParkOp.com, presents the Central Park Walking Tours; a combination of audio Podcasts, maps and interactive guides designed to direct park visitors to some of the most remarkable and best loved features of Central Park providing background information and history. The tours also point out some of the most photogenic sites in the park.

She works closely with Dr. Sellas to manage her manic and rare depressive episodes without resorting to mind-numbing medications, and thrills at helping members try out new skills and find new passions. Exalt! Skills Lead

Exalt! USA


Erik Markham - Puck's essential second in command, Erik acts as a personal assistant and go-to man for various unusual tasks. Erik is a former Air Force officer, though he only served one tour of duty before opting out of the military. He is certified as a bondsman and private investigator in all of the Northeastern states and had a thriving private business before joining Exalt!.

At the age of nine he was sent to a prestigious Swiss boarding school to begin training to become an "upstanding and successful member of society."

He headed back to the US before his parents even knew about the expulsion, disappearing into the underground music scene. Puck discovered him a heroin rehab center and since his joining has urged him to at least let his parents know that he is okay. Charities USA Lead


Amelia Hart - One of the first members of Exalt!, Amelia's most public contribution to the organization is as the Outreach Lead and public baseline media contact. While her childhood is easy enough to track, a lower-middle class child raised in rural Iowa, little of her time once she moved to New York is known until she joined the Exalt! organization. Outreach USA Lead


Dr. Laura Sellas - A well-respected psychiatrist with a specialization in nova studies, Dr. Sellas' joining of the Exalt! organization shocked many of her peers, who fear that she's been taken in a by a forming cult. Within Exalt! Dr. Sellas handles the psychological evaluations required of all applicants, as well as as-needed therapy for members and monthly sessions with all members as a preventative mental health measure. Health & Wellness USA Lead

Bethany Sampson - Mother of five of the children currently residing on the Exalt! premises, Bethany is the undisputed head of the Gateway kitchen. A vibrant woman, loving single mother, and eternal romantic, Bethany pours her heart into her culinary creations. Her innovations has made Gateway one of the hottest restaurants in NYC, though critical reviews are still lukewarm at best in part due to her lack of a formal culinary degree or pedigree. Bethany's response is always a laugh and an assertion that any parent that cooks for their children have passed through a culinary crucible far more difficult and demanding than any school. Exalt!
