    EDIT : My mistake, sorry people. Great job on the Commonwealth write-up and I'm looking forward to the rules for Quantakinetics.

        I can find no instances of "Bharti" but 19 instances of "Bharati." I'm not sure where you're seeing that.

        "Bharati Commonwealth" dates back to the original release of Aeon in 1997.

          I am so sorry... I'm have no idea why my brain went through that entire passage reading it as Bharti . My mistake... great job on it though, I enjoyed reading it thoroughly

            Wanted to make sure: Pakistan's an oppressive regime (as mentioned in the Middle East section) which's part of the Bharati Commonwealth, right?

              First I want to say that I would very much like you to know how annoyed I am that your Trinity Continuum is a much cooler name than I'd given to the WW/OP Omniverse I've slowly been unveiling to my players over the last year and a half.

              Secondly, will the Aeon chapter featuring how to build Aberrants as antagonists offer enough guidance that once could conceivably convert 1E Aberrant powers to start playing an Aberrant style game sooner rather than later; or will it be more like the version of Aberrants as represented in 1E Trinity.

                dirtypoolfilms it's been mentioned that the Aberrants in Aeon are the 1st Ed variety (sub-mutant space-mad types). The dedicated future Aberrant RPG will contain Nova era powers.

                  I presumed as much, I was just ever hopeful that at least an approximation of Nova play might be available

                      Some random thoughts:

                      Chapter 3
                      page 14: While it is common for super heroes to use names that describe their powers, it feels weird to have the novas use names which describe their function in Eden's society. It feels as if serving Eden's society is their prime function. Perhaps a Mega-Charismatic (or their 2nd Edition equivalent) nova has used his powers to shape his fellow novas and the baselines into this weird but functioning society.

                      page 21: Yes, thank you, the fight between the novas and the Chromatics sounds now much more realistic.

                      Chapter 4
                      page 1: Step 5 is printed twice

                      - Is there a limit to the number of Auxiliary Modes you can have?
                      - Can you later buy more Auxiliary Modes?
                      - Do you need Psi 3 for Teleportation and Quantakinesis Auxiliary Modes?

                      - Tier 3 Proxy Level Psions: Thank you for including them. I dislike it when NPCs like the Proxies can have powers that PCs can't get.

                        I posted this on the kickstarter comments, but I'll also ask it here worded differently.

                        If you have three dots or more in a skill at character creation, do you get a free skill trick? Because TCore seemed to say NO, but the wording in Æon chapter three seems to say YES.

                          - No, but you can only have one dot per Mode. (Or to put it another way - Yes, 21 )
                          - Yes.
                          - Yes.

                            I have already commented on kickstarter but I’d like to contact the authors for this: Ruan’s world to have it’s sun seemly unmoving should be tidally locked instead of not spinning otherwise it’s day length is equivalent to the year length. I think its important to have it corrected in the final version.

                              It will be interesting to see how Players can reach this Tier of Power. The Proxies who are already at this level have a unique reason for it (I'm currently assuming this is a 2nd Ed mechanic based on the influence they were receiving in 1st Ed), so justifying it for Players will be interesting since it is highly unlikely that the Players used the same method (as doing so would likely make the players privy to spoiler information of the setting... like who is actually backing the Proxies). My guess would be that the players would be some of the few naturally gifted Psiads who came by their powers naturally rather than have them enhanced by the Prometheus Chambers as Psions are (or at least something to this effect).

                              Whether any of this information is revealed in the Aeon book or future releases... only time will tell.


                              There are three types of people in the world... those who can count and those who can't.
