Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

I like to think of it as Warhammer: 1985 . All the insanity of WH40k, all the advanced futuristic technology that we thought we’d have in the future... of 1985. WOOOOOOOAAAAAAAHHHHH- are you saying their 150 MB Hard Drives are just a little too unrealistic for a setting only 300 years in the future...

Re: Palladium/Rifts into M&M

Here's the infamous takedown of Kevin Siembieda's management style, from one of his own ex-employees (who later apologized for being so unprofessional... but didn't refute his statements): One of Kevin's biggest problems is that he is a micro-manager in the truest sense of the word. He runs an opera...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

My brain is physically in pain. EMBRACE THE LUNACY OF THE SETTING, WOODCLAW!! You know you want to!! It's not the setting, it's the system. I would refute your statements, but all my sources seem scattered haphazardly through the book for some reason... Bill Coffin, ex-writer for Palladium (and a m...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

Oh, weird. I though the magic kingdom WAS Tolkeen. I mean, it's named after JRR Tolkien, and I figured... Magic... Tolkien...

I mean, I've assumed they were one and the same for twenty years :? .

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

MY OWN RIFTS CHARACTERS: RAEGON (Great Horned Dragon Hatchling): Luckily, I rolled a "4" for his MDC, giving him 450, versus a low roll, which gives 150. We only played in one or two games before another player (a guy familiar with the game, playing a giant wizard named "Arkhal") no-showed, and we ...

Rifts Books

THE BOOKS: - Rifts actually releases books fairly frequently, though peaked in the mid-1990s, it seems. There are multiple tiers of books, though most are "World Books", detailing some part of their world. Many are the brainchild of just one writer and his concept, while others appear to just be a ...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

Oh, I forgot about the "South America" origin story- thanks Batgirl! There's a richness to the setting I really enjoy. Their stuff about "Psionic Energy Doubling at Death" is still something I use to this day in settings, justifying "Ritual Slaughter" for Evil Wizard-types. Kind of makes up for all ...

The Arts

THE ARTISTS: The art is hit or miss in the early games, but gets REALLY good later on, to the point where Rifts gained a rep for having EXCEPTIONALLY good art. Generally speaking, these are the main artists and their traits... Wayne Breaux- Draws very blocky, boring-looking robots. His suits and ve...

Magic Spells (Main Rulebook)

MAGIC SPELLS: [/u] * UGH, finally done this atrocity. Yes, it's as much of a slog as it looks. But I felt the need to get all the spells down, just to get a greater sense of what a Wizard could do. What's surprising is how non-combat-oriented it largely is. There's a bunch of Afflictions in the mid...

You included such a thorough analysis of Wolverine’s pros and cons in your write-up that, frankly, there isn’t much to add.
Well I do like to be thorough (he says, to the shock of no one, lol).

Re: Palladium/Rifts into M&M

Nice take on the Operator! I’ve always had a soft-spot for this class, specifically for its rather romantic take on being an adventurer in a post-apocalyptic world. I kind of like the idea of wandering the wasteland fixing irrigation pumps and coaxing farm machinery back to life... Easily as import...
