An Adventure Series Sourcebook for Trinity
The Battle Rages On
A year ago the alien Chromatics, using captive Upeo wa Macho — humans with the power to teleport — invaded our Solar System. Humanity united to repel the sneak attack. Now the tables are turned. Rescued teleporters and captive aliens provide the information necessary to exact revenge upon the invaders — to strike at the Chromatics' very homeworld.
Join the Front Lines!
Invasion is the first in the two part Alien Encounter adventure series that explores the Trinity Universe's mysterious — and deadly — alien races, as characters lead a daring counterattack against the warlike Chromatics. Comprehensive source material also provides Storytellers with a wealth of information about the alien homeworld, which can be the setting for any story.
- Two complete adventures useable for any Trinity series
- Revealing source material on the alien Chromatics and their world
- Shocking secrets about the Upeo wa Macho, Chromatics, Aberrants, and a mysterious new alien race!
Release: Invasion was originally published in February 1999, and follows from the events of the Darkness Revealed trilogy. The purpose of the series was to spotlight various alien races in the Trinity setting; Invasion focused almost exclusively on the Chromatics. Player characters travel to the Chromatic homeworld via one of the new Leviathan-class jumpships. Throughout the adventures, their culture is examined in detail.
The adventure also reveals what happened to many of the missing Upeo wa Macho teleporters, reuniting them with the rest of Earth's psions. Later books will detail their use as a player character group for the first time.
Also revealed are the Doyen. While playing a minor role in the final part of Darkness Revealed, one is encountered "in the flesh," and their extensive manipulations of both humans and Chromatics are uncovered for the first time.
This book was the last released before the publication of the newly revised softcover Trinity rulebook. Although the rulebook didn't yet cover the Upeo wa Macho as playable, it did fully describe the secret history via the Storyteller-only "The Story So Far" section.
Cover: The cover by David Seeley depicts three psions — an Æsculapian, an Æon-affiliated electrokinetic, and a pyrokinetic Legionnaire — fending off attacking Chromatics.
