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.

The elves of Eredane are children of nature, inhabiting the Great Forest of Erethor. Despite their ancient civilization and powerful magic, they inhabit the wilds and live connected to the ancient woodlands, devoted to the Witch Queen Aradil. They revere the natural world, creating dwellings in massive trees throughout the forest. While all elves share a cohesive culture and history, there are four distinct groups of elves.

Stone Giants are huge humanoids which appear to be flesh and blood, but their outer skin is a dense protective crust similar to rock or dried mud. The humanoids are carnivores and eat raw meat, but are not cannibalistic, and prefer to hunt in thick, low-mountain wooded forests which border grasslands. Their preferred prey are buffalo, dinosaurs, and other grazing animals, as well as the humans and D-bees which hunt the same.

The dwarves are an ancient people, their society structured along family lines. Like the Dorns, loyalty to the clan and honor is a central part of their lives. Dwarven clanholds once numbered more than 600, but as the Shadow continues its advance that number continues to dwindle. Most dwarven clans (about 4 out of 5) live underground in warren-like holds carved out of the mountains. The remaining Kurgun dwarves are surface dwellers and occupy the old dwarven surface cities in the south Kaladruns.

The Coalition Kill Hounds are the brainchild of Dr Desmond Bradford, the insane scientist who oversees the Lone Star military complex. A recent variation on the Dog Boy project, they are intended as front line shock troops and hunter-killers. The Kill Hound is a hulking canine humanoid creature with a bloodlust unlike anything Dr Bradford has created thus far. Small packs of 8-10 have been known to slaughter entire villages of D-bees and they were bred with the Tolkeen War in mind. Most are spliced using larger breeds, but especially Rottweiler, Bull Terrier, and Wolfhound traits.

In this post, I bring you the human races inhabiting Eredane. The ancestral lords of the North known as the Dorns, originally inhabited Erenland before the Sarcosans invaded from across the seas. Out of this invasion and subsequent intermingling of the two cultures over the centuries, an entirely unique culture was born: the true Erenlander.

[UPDATED 8/20/2017] An ancient cousin to humans, Atlanteans have been transformed through centuries of mystic study and dimensional travel. Most are scholarly and generally peaceful, seeking to aid younger races in achieving enlightenment and combat forces of darkness.
