I am a criminal. I went up in the loft this afternoon, on legitimate house storage business, and took the opportunity to re-introduce my Aeon Trilogy books to our shelves.
Adventure! was already there, so why not usher them all out into the open…

I love these games. They’re Pulp, Cyberpunk and Superhuman games that run together into a two century long epic plot of human potential.
System wise, they birth both Exalted / Scion and New World of Darkness.
Presentation wise, they revitalized WWs book format, with in-genre setting material for the first half, and system & storytelling at the back. This made the first half readable as a standalone book. Rawrsome!

The three main books received critical acclaim when published, but didn’t do well enough on the sales front to warrant continued support. Trinity, as the first game, received about a dozen supplements / story modules, and Aberrant got about six-ish. Adventure! stood alone, but was such a work of transcendental genius that it didn’t need anything.

Let me be clear on that last point.
Adventure! is possibly THE best game of all time. Ever. Hands down.

Anyways, I was looking round the new WW website last week, and couldn’t find anything to do with these games. Have they stopped supporting them? It would be a tragedy if they have.

  1. I know they stopped publishing material for it aaaaages ago. (What, like a decade now? Wikipedia suggests as much: “… the Trinity Universe line was discontinued shortly after [Adventure!]'s publication; … Adventure! won the Origins Award for Best Role-Playing Game of 2001”.) Still, jarring not to see somewhere to download character sheets – or even a mention.

    Actually, there doesn't seem to be anywhere to download sheets for the current games … am I missing something?

    For what it's worth, you can buy PDFs of the whole line via Drive Thru RPG: http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/index.php?cPath=2

  2. The 'old' site included a link to the 'older' site that still hosted Aeon-verse stuff. It appears to be generally gone now.

    I get all my WW character sheets from this chap

    He seems to have generally official backing, and they're all rawrsome…

    As for ongoing Aeon-verse support, there's always Eon Online

    This fan site hosts some semi official content, such as the unpublished Trinity books and some extrapolations from designer notes etc.
    A good resource site. It even has an Adventure! storytellers screen type thing. Priceless.
