What is the Trinity Continuum RPG?
The Trinity Continuum isn’t a single game, but a framework for multiple different games, each explored in a different era within the Trinity Continuum timeline. In Trinity Continuum: Æon, humanity has evolved in the early 22nd century and is beginning to explore the galaxy with the help of powerful psychics called psions. Trinity Continuum: Aberrant is a game of super-powered adventure set in the near future. Trinity Continuum: Adventure! is a pulp-inspired two-fisted romp in the 1930s.
That said, the basic core version of the Trinity Continuum is a contemporary cinematic action-adventure setting inspired by adventurers and agencies found in the Bourne and Kingsman movies or the Tomb Raider series, as well as stylish caper films like Ocean’s Eleven or Baby Driver, and secret helpful organizations like the A-Team, Leverage, Charlie’s Angels or Agents of SHIELD.
This setting and all of the rules needed to play are contained in the TRINITY CONTINUUM CORE RULEBOOK, which is available as an Add On PDF or hardcover book, as well as being a pledge reward for the Les Fantômes or Polyphemus pledge tiers.
The TRINITY CONTINUUM PLAYER’S GUIDE is a rules expansion for the Trinity Continuum Core Rules, expanding some of the minor Allegiances introduced in the core rulebook, and adding new Gifts, Edges, Paths and Skill Tricks, as well as guidance and rules on running chases, races, investigations, and heists. New fantastic destinations are explored, such as alternate dimensions, time travel, the microverse, and undersea worlds. Finally, additional Storyguiding advice to make the game run best at your table is presented, along with a host of option rules to tweak the game to fit the flavor you desire.

What system does the Trinity Continuum tabletop RPG use?
The Trinity Continuum roleplaying games - regardless of which setting or era you’re exploring - use Onyx Path’s Storypath system.
The Storypath System uses ten-sided dice, and is designed to be an action-heavy roleplaying game. The rules facilitate a number of playing styles and in game elements at the table including:
Action Gameplay: Storypath takes cues from action movies to keep scenes moving quickly and preventing them from getting bogged down.
Cinematic Pacing: Storypath divides sessions and scenes into different units of time that support a story moving at the speed of plot. Campaigns are modeled similarly to a long-running television series, using episodes, arcs, and seasons, to emphasize plot and characters over minutia or real time competency.
Scaling: Storypath uses a comparative chart to measure general degrees of power between opponents. Gods or superheroes can fight each other on mostly equal ground, while mere mortals can do the same to one another. It’s only when the psychic superhuman deals with your average beat cop that Scale comes into play!
Bonding: Though the rules are designed to portray individual characters, Storypath also uses group mechanics to create a collaborative storytelling role-playing experience. The Bonds formed during character creation and sessions bring new overarching mechanics and collaborative themes into play based on character milestones.
Competence: The player-characters are assumed to be competent in their area of specialization be it research, combat, persuasion, or any other field of human endeavor. Dice rolls aren’t always meant to assume success or failure: they’re meant to determine influence over the story and the degree to which the character succeeds.
Enhanced Combat: Storypath combat uses ranged bands, fields with terrain features, and the tools for both active and supporting characters to contribute to a fight. Combined, these techniques will keep fights interesting — even in extended conflicts and battles.

What is BackerKit?
BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!
The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.
How does BackerKit work?
After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.
I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?
The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.
Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.
To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.
How do I update my shipping address?
BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.
When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?
That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.
I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?
As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
ARTWORK, DESIGN, MATERIAL & CONTENTS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Onyx Path shares artwork, design, descriptions and manuscript contents with the understanding that changes may occur in the creation of the final product based on further development, available resources and materials, and the nature of the creative process.
DIGITAL REWARDS and DISCOUNTED COST LINKS. You will be notified by BackerKit when digital rewards and discounted cost links become available to you. Typically, these will be links to load PDF titles into your account library on DriveThruRPG.com or to order a Print-on-Demand version from DriveThruRPG's PoD partners. The links from BackerKit must be activated within 120 days to ensure the titles are added to your library or are available at the discounted rate, after which the links may expire and Onyx Path may not be able to provide replacements. If you do not accept these terms, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.
ADDRESS CONFIRMATION & DELIVERY OBLIGATIONS. If you confirm your pledge prior to final address confirmation and initiation of distribution notification via email, you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered into our pledge manager system, that title and risk passes to you upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment, and you are responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods. Failure to confirm mailing address prior to final request and distribution notification will be taken as agreement that all obligations have been met and no further action or effort is required on the part of Onyx Path. We will attempt to alert you via the methods provided by BackerKit, primarily e-mail, prior to distribution of rewards to avoid any issue, but once we’ve made all reasonable efforts, we must move on with other business and will be unable to make exceptions.
