For those of you that have stopped by before, welcome back! If you haven't already looked around, this is my little corner of the Internet that contains 15+ years of tabletop RPG resources. There's a heavy Palladium presence since I played their games from the time I was in middle school (about 12-13 for those that may not be familiar with US education groupings) up until several years ago. I'm still working through a backlog of stuff unearthed from my hard drive (and in need of some rewriting), but I continue to post new resources as I use it in my current Savage Rifts campaign.

While I still love Palladium and their settings, I've opted to pursue simpler mechanics. After backing the Breachworld RPG by Jason Richards Publishing (you might recognize his name if you're a Rifts fan), I fell in love with the Mini6 system, and you'll find some resources for that RPG here. Currently, I'm back in the realm of Rifts Earth and my familiarity and love of that setting is spurring a lot of new translations to the Savage Rifts RPG. As campaigns come and go, you'll see new material posted that relates to the epic storylines I seek to tell along with my players. What follows are many, many resources for these campaigns that I hope you will find useful in your own campaign.

It all starts in MercTown with a pair of new arrivals. These two are fugitives from the Coalition State of Lonestar and have a retrieval squad hot on their tail. After laying low for a time in MercTown, they begin to venture out and explore job opportunities. While it's unsavory to have to work with these d-bees and magic-users, it seems they're not all as bad as they'd been led to believe. The work even pays well...

Chaos. The one true force. Well, at least in my life.

I grew up with a hard life. The neighborhood was bad. Real bad. My parents, well, as long as they lived anyway, were drug addicts. Bastards. Luckily, life wasn't so hard for my mom before she had me, so I didn't come out with a bunch of fuckin' defects. Anyway, back to me. I grew up in New York City. Not a bad place, but I wouldn't wanna live there. The area I lived in was full of crack-heads, junkies, miscreants, and the lowest of the low. Come to think of it, there were a lot of lawyers, too. Hmm.. I'll muse about that another time. I managed to stay alive on the streets with street smarts and cunning. Even avoided the gangs, luckily.

Kazim al-Sajid was born to a minor noble family in the City of Llorn in the Eastern Territories. He fell out of favor with his family after an unfortunate incident involving an argument about who was to become the family's patron. It ended with Kazim's older brother lying on the floor, drowning in his own blood.

The Atlanteans of this day and age are as varied as humans ever have been. They come in all colors and beliefs. In fact, those Atlanteans that escaped to other continents on Earth after the disastrous cataclysm that sent Atlantis into limbo are responsible for a great number of the cultures that emerged, particularly in Egypt, the British Isles, and Central and South America. At present, few clans exist and the total population of Atlanteans is still not equal to the days prior to the disaster (total population is around 23 million, all scattered throughout the Megaverse).

This is part two of my article regarding what, I believe, the outcome of the major conflicts on Rifts Earth will be. This second part covers most of the Eastern Hemisphere (Africa and Australia will be covered, hopefully, in Part Three). I will, hopefully, give some information regarding the outcome of major conflicts in the Phase World and Wormwood dimensions (Phase World being the most prominent). Read and and enjoy...

A while ago, I got into a debate about the many fronts the Coalition faces, how this might affect them, and the possibilities of who might win. It also turned out to be a great discussion about the factors that could affect the outcome of every war the Coalition States has entered in to, mostly those factors that Prosek does not know of or may not be considering. What follows is a bit analytical in nature, but I feel that the information it provides could give some ideas for campaigns that take place after the wars (such as my recently posted campaign about the invasion to re-take Atlantis). I will include information for every major conflict that has been alluded to in the Rifts books, most prominently the Coalition States' Campaign of Unity and the New German Republic's war against the Gargoyles, Brodkil and Mindwerks. This is the first of two parts and covers the Western Hemisphere. I have to do some more research to get the rest of it, but keep an eye out for it (I'm really going to enjoy doing the part about Russia). Read on and enjoy…
