Test Your Might Against the Champions of the Ring...

Gladiators of the Quantum age, XWF shootfighters take recreational combat into the extreme zone of skin-ripping, blood-boiling, bone-crushing physical trauma. When claws, fire bolts and Mega-Strength come into play in the ring, the stakes go up. Way up. And when the stakes are this high, something's gotta give...

...If You're Nova Enough.

Aberrant: XWF contains everything you need to know to be one of the heroes — or villains — of the Quantum combat ring. Pit your character against the Demon King Raja Ravana, Christine "The Terminatrix" Jesensky and the other world-class badasses on the nova fight circuit. Learn about the nervous sponsors, the obsessed viewers and the unstable masterminds behind it all. But be warned, the XWF is not for wimps.

Hidden Lore

Release: Published in February of 2000, XWF was one of the first minor setting books, showcasing one of the lesser-known (and less important) organizations within the Aberrant setting. With only a handful of pages, these books were more pamphlets than full supplements.

XWF featured a number of wrestling tropes and sly winks to characters within the WWE (still known as the WWF at the time this book was published). The most obvious of which is clearly Ric Flair, an actual WWE wrestler who has moved on to manage the XWF. Slightly more subtle references include Rocky "The Face" Elizondo (a reference to The Rock) and "Stone Badass" Lance Stryker (a reference to "Stone Cold" Steve Austin).

Cover: The cover by Talon Dunning is a fairly abstract piece with fireworks, smoke, lightning, spotlights, and fire. No characters are featured.

New Edition

Cover of N!WE Unleashed!Onyx Path's latest edition of Aberrant, Trinity Continuum: Aberrant, reimagines nova wrestling in N!WE Unleashed: Pulse Pounding Nova Wrestling Action!. As "XWF" has since been taken up by a real-life wrestling promotion, the new edition uses N!WE: "N!ternational Wrestling Entertainment." 

N!WE Unleashed features the details of the N!WE, the more underground MMA-style Nova Combat, and a minigame for playing out a fight in the ring, which is equal parts defeating your opponent and performing for the audience.

An interesting look at Extreme Nova Sports. Based on the WWF(tm), this book looks at professional entertainment sports for novas. Great for Players and especially Storytellers. [...]

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.
