  • Marvel's 1986-1989 New Universe (rebooted by Warren Ellis in 2007-2008 as newuniversal).

    "The premise behind the line of comics was that, prior to July 22, 1986, the New Universe was identical to the real world. The New Universe's first divergence from normal reality was the White Event, a strange astronomical phenomenon that occurred on July 22, 1986, at 4:22 a.m., EST, and lasted for mere moments. It bathed the Earth in a bright white light and caused genetic anomalies in two out of every one million humans, which led to them developing superhuman powers. Many looked completely...

  • Psiad character creation rules will be in the Aeon Aexpansion, but yes, you'll require Aeon. We're not going to repeat the entirety of the Aeon psi powers section in the Aeon Aexpansion, since it is -- as the name suggests -- an expansion for Aeon.



    There are no explicit psiad creation rules in the Aberrant core because the core splat of Aberrant are novas. Just like there are no nova-creation rules in Aeon, even though you could play one in that era if you wanted.

    That said, there are a couple of sample psiad NPCs written up in the existing Aberrant manuscript,...

  • I recommend Anne McCaffrey's Talents trilogy (wow I wonder where that name came from): To Ride Pegasus, Pegasus in Flight, and Pegasus in Space. It's set in the modern day(ish), in the mega-city of Jerhattan (Jersey City + Manhattan), as people with psionic abilities are discovered. The Jerhattan Parapsychic Centre is the first of many such centres that pops up all over the world to train Talents. Spans multiple decades, from the first discovery of Talented abilities to the foundation of the Talent-led Federated Telepath & Teleport, which can teleport colony ships to far-off stars at a fraction...

  • Correct.

    By making the Aeon Society the good guys, that had a cascading effect on the setting:

    Aeon are good -> no nova sterilization conspiracy -> Slider doesn't get assassinated -> Corbin and Rousseau don't form the Aberrants -> T2N happens instead -> Aberrants form as a sub-group of Teragen

    Deciding that the Fireman was going to be our first big example of Sacrifice was a second big change, but didn't have the same ripple effect....

    That's certainly a take, and I'm not sure where you got any of this.

    Going by their 1e Adventure! bios:

    Mercer's parents were wealthy. While they were anthropologists, and thus visited many exotic locales with the young Max, it's specifically stated their wealth came from investments. Max attended Harvard and got two PhDs in as many years. As his parents aged, he managed their fortune, and invested in several museums. He apparently managed that money quite well: the fiction on page 3 says "He’d made a sheik's fortune 11 or 12 times over in his young life from radical...

    replied to New Ministry symbol
    It's one of the symbols used by the Egyptian god Typhon. Typhon was often syncretized with Set. Both were associated with winds and storms, which is one reason the symbol looks similar to the symbol often used to represent hurricanes on weather maps. "Typhon" is, after all, where we get "typhoon."

  • There's a lot of stuff we call AI in the sense that they're complicated and adaptive computer algorithms. That mostly just gets iterated on -- what Aeon calls SI (Satisfactory Intelligence), or Mass Effect calls VI (virual intelligence). True AS (artificial sentience) doesn't make a big splash at this point in the setting. But years or decades later? It will.



    If you want to publish material for our setting, you need a license. It might be a while, but I'd suggest waiting until the Storypath Nexus opens to Aberrant material. Joining the Nexus is itself a license, and...

    Differences between Scion and Trinity Continuum are intentional, yes.

    All the CofD games take place in the same universe. They're all part of one larger game line. So each supernatural template builds on the same core foundation.

    Scion and the Trinity Continuum are two completely different universes and game lines, so you shouldn't expect they're working from the same starting point.

    The closest equivalent to the CofD is a setting like the Trinity Continuum, which has novas and psions and Talents all working from the same starting point. Scion is not part...
