Description

In the 22nd century, humanity has ventured to the stars. Yet amid the wonders of this new age, makind faces many dangers from without and within. Alien races, fractious colonies, contending governments, ruthless corporations and aberrant mutations all vie for supremacy. At the center of the conflict stands a new breed of humans - men and women with psychic powers - whose actions will determine mankind's ultimate fate.


This is the core rulebook for playing Trinity, one part of the larger Trinity Universe setting. In this book, you play psions, each from a different Psi Order. Sixty years ago, the formerly-human mutated Aberrants, with powers to reshape the world around them, were exiled from Earth following a devastating war... but now they want it back. The Æon Trinity unifies the disparate Psi Orders to drive the Aberrants away for good.

This book is based on the softcover third printing, following the limited edition Æon and the hardcover unlimited edition Trinity. As such, the back of the book contains the extra "The Story So Far" section, which catches Storytellers up with the existing overarching metaplot, as well as giving away a few background secrets, all previously unavailable to Storytellers.

Hidden Lore

Releases: Trinity was originally released in a spiral-bound plastic binder limited edition as Æon, in October 1997. Two weeks later due to a legal challenge, White Wolf changed the name of the game to Trinity. It was White Wolf's first limited edition release, and would stand alone for another year, with the release of the limited cover of Vampire: The Masquerade's Revised Edition.

The Trinity hardcover was released in November 1997, and then the softcover in March 1999, falling between Alien Encounter 1: Invasion and Trinity Field Report: Media.

Although prior to its release, many fans dismissed it as being "Vampire in space," insisting that the Storyteller System was unsuited for anything outside of horror games, Trinity went on to be successful in its own right as the first game of a larger setting, now called the Trinity Universe. The Revised Storyteller System used within was further refined in Aberrant, and then again for Exalted, proving the suitability and longevity of the system for any number of other settings beyond its horror origins.

The Cover: Chris Moeller provides a new cover for this printing, featuring several key elements of the setting and backstory. This includes an inhuman Aberrant (possibly The Colony), a Leviathan jump-ship, a psychokinetic weilding ice-based cryokinetic and fire-based pyrokinetic powers, an ISRAn firing a laser weapon, and the crashing Esperanza space station.

Whoops!: Since the hardcover edition was released so quickly after the name change, a couple of instances of the organization called the "Æon Trinity" were accidentally changed to "Trinity Trinity." Fortuntely this was fixed by the softcover edition.

Art: The internal art takes an interesting, and perhaps novel approach: much of the art was presented in-universe, with named artists or other creators: William O'Connor's art was labelled as being by "Akira Van Woc," Leif Jones' works were presented as being created by fashionista "Kostbaar," and so on. This trend persisted throughout the line.

The quality of the PDF is atrocious and i bought the PDF in hopes of being able to print a copy for my own use, but that's not possible due to the blurry and distorted scan. I feel scammed out of my money to be blunt honest. I regret having bought [...]

Trinity is an excellent game system and a rich and complex sci-fi setting, so I encourage people to find one of the many copies of the rulebook floating out there at gamestores and eBay. That said, this review is about the quality of the PDF and not the [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
