Subject:Aberrant 2.0
Time:06:01 pm
Ever since WW announced the Scion series I've been assuming that it will essentially be a new version of Aberrant, in much the same way that the new Vampire-Werewolf-Mage triumvirate are reboots of the originals yet share nothing in common with their predecessors. Especially since Scion has been announced as a series of three books, Hero Demigod & God, I've been wondering if each will compare to the Trinityverse's concepts of Daredevil, Stalwart & Psion.

So, has anybody seen or read the new Scion book?
And does it compare to the Trinityverse books in any way?

I'm keen to recreate Aberrant using the nWoD rules, so I'll probably end up buying the Scion books either way. I'm just curious if anybody reading this might know more than me right now.

My understanding is that Scion: Hero is conceptually closer to Exalted than anything from the Trinity universe. (I could wrong). Also the system it uses is a modified version of the Exalted 2nd system, not the nWoD system.

I does use an epic attribute system with related knacks which is based off of the Aberrant Mega-Attributes though.

There's a Scion demo with some rules here.

What 5monkeys said. This has no relation to Aberrant/Trinity/Adventure. Reading the backstory at the beginning of Scion and some of the other stuff, it makes it clear that this is about a "divine" meta-history in which the gods have turned back to the world of man to fight the Titans of Myth ...

It may share some aspects of the old Aberrant universe, you know, people now imbued with powers beyond those of mortal men ... but it's a very different focus.

Yeah, the focus of the "holy trinity" of Vampire-Werewolf-Mage also is very different from the originals. I'm just wondering about comparisons, especially in mechanics and depth of play.

Personally, I'm still hoping to convert the various Aeon Continuum games over to Spirit of the Century... :)
