    The issue is not Corruption, the issue is Quantum Flux.



    Biotech -- in the Æon sense -- intrinsically relies on Psi. Even if it doesn't replicate psion powers, it relies on having a solid psi template, which is why psions are able to use biotech far more effectively than neutrals can. Prosaic genetic engineering is not the same thing.

    Quantum Flux by its very nature disrupts a living being's psi template, which is what causes Quantum Flux Diseases. The same effect is what makes it challenging or dangerous for novas to use biotech....

    It's not covered in the current edition.

    In 1st Edition, it's found in America Offline, the Orgotek psi order book, on p. 119. It's an "Electrokinesis Enhancement Suit" (EES), often just called a "sparkle suit."

    It's been popularized in the TV series Strike Team Psion, where Dr. Sagar uses it to throw around lightning, but in reality the circuitry is too fragile to be worn in the field, and is more for researchers.

    In 1e terms, it adds four dots to your Psi for the purposes of effect ranges and durations for electrokinetic effects, and...

  • Correct.

    "Flux" is the subtle energies of probability that ripple between parallel dimensions, subconsciously manipulated by Talents.

    "Quantum Flux" is the collective term for the energies of the four fundamental forces: the strong and weak nuclear forces, gravity, and electromagnetism. It's consciously manipulated by novas to dramatic effect....

    Make sure:
    - you have your DTRPG settings set so that publishers (or at least Onyx Path) is allowed to send you email.
    - the email is not in your spam folder

    That's not a thing.

    "Inspiration" (or telluric energies, or Z-waves) are what the pulp era calls these esoteric energies that they do not understand. As time progresses, they'll tease them out and label them separately as Quantum, Psi, and Flux. Three different forms of energy, rather than three different reactions to one form of energy.

    Stalwarts always manipulated Quantum, even in 1e, there was just not the understanding that allowed them to more accurately define it separate from the other forces....

  • Swarm Queen was in the Last Supper photo, over towards the left. It's the only illustration of her in 1e, IIRC. https://i.imgur.com/Tvho9H0.jpg

    She and her weird hair appear in the illustration on p. 177 of Trinity Continuum: Aberrant.



    Most of the others got covered by Mateus above. Gothic Knight isn't name-dropped, but he appears perched on a rooftop on p. 248 of TC: Aberrant....

  • I believe all of those characters were established in supplements, not the core rules, with the possible exception of Dr. Worm.

    The new edition's rulebook doesn't include them either, but that doesn't mean they don't exist: we can't cover the entirety of 1st Editon's nova roster within the core rulebook, or there'd be no room for the actual game....

    I think you're looking at this backwards.

    Psiads are naturally-occuring psi-users, who typically trigger when they're exposed to sufficient psi energies in the surrounding environment.
    Psions are artificially-created psi-users, dunked in a Prometheus Chamber to rewrite their genetics to enable them to channel psi in a specific way.

    Novas erupt from exposure to sufficient quantum energies. They are the naturally-occuring novas. The only thing artificial is the cause of the quantum energies to which they've been exposed.
    Superiors are an example of artificially-created...

    replied to Psiad in Aberrant
    As per Æon Æxpansion p. 86, "Psiads in official Trinity Continuum time periods before 2104 can’t develop more than the basic quantakinetic powers."

    The basic QK abilities are always available to psiads, but nothing more than that until after 2104, and then quantakinesis can be learned by psions and psiads alike....

    From context, I'm assuming you're asking about a 1e game, and not the new edition.

    Anything involving 2020 would probably be Matthew's remit: They Came from 2020!



    The TC core setting is a floating now-ish. Aberrant is explicitly 2028, Æon is 2123, Adventure! is 1934, and Anima is 2084. The dates are fixed and don't float like the modern day.

    Paul Dini and Bruce Timm may have claimed that Batman Beyond was "40 years from now, whenever now is," but they also put dates on screen, placing it in 2039.

    If we do another edition 20 years from now maybe we'll adjust the timelines again, but for this edition, this is it....

    We had extensive conversations about it and ultimately decided to leave it as is. Aberrant errata, however, is not what the Ask A Dev thread is for. You're welcome to use the errata form if you disagree with our decison....

  • To repeat what I said on Discord: a lot of the discussion around the Kickstarter turned pretty toxic. We don't want to see more of that. Critique is fine, but please make sure you temper your comments and remember there are humans on the other end. Thank you.

    (And please make sure to use the errata form if you have corrections.)
