SummaryEdit

From the White Wolf catalog:

Your Legacy Is Our Future
Golden age or Hell on Earth? To the residents of the Trinity Universe, the 21st century was a monstrous era when mad gods ran rampant across the world. But is this truth or OpNet propaganda? What was the Age of Aberrants really like? Find out the truth. Its not what you expect.
Age of Hope, Age of Sacrifice
Aberrant is a core rulebook and prequel to the Trinity science-fiction game that deals with the Aberrant Era. Set in the early 21st century, before the devastating war against humanity, this new complete roleplaying game allows you to be one of these doomed beings of vast power, and to experience their struggles to avoid the coming cataclysm. This unlimited-issue softcover edition contains an out-of-control full-color setting, and original art from some of comics greats, including Tom Fleming and Christopher Moeller.

Background InformationEdit

The Aberrant logo consists of two elements: the blocky outer part and a messy, scribbed inner part. This inner portion was used during initial advertising for Aberrant, as far back as 1997's Trinity release. The center of the two R's were replaced by the number 9, forming a 99, letting purchasers know the year Aberrant was supposed to come out.

If you look closely at the Aberrant logo, you can see the 99 is still there.

When the book was put into production, due to a technical error, a character sheet was not added to this core rulebook. (You can download character sheets from EON at http://www.rpg-post.com/downloads/aberrant/interactivesheets.html)

Memorable QuotesEdit

"Baptized in quantum fires, reborn as incarnate gods, drunk with fame, sacrificed on the altar of power. We are your heroes, your legends, your icons. Beware. Your legacy is our future." - Cover
