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.

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.

Tattoo Magic is a special kind of magic with a special Arcane Background and some associated Edges. What follows is more information regarding the Arcane Background and additional Edges available only to arcane characters and Tattooed Men.

Rank: Novice
Power Points: 2

Duration: 3 (1/round)
Trappings: A mark or tattoo, a faint aura

One of my favorite OGL settings was a dark fantasy world created by Fantasy Flight Games (in the heyday of d20, they were cranking out quality products left and right). The best way to describe it would be Middle Earth, but Sauron won the war. There's a lot of very Tolkien-esque concepts in the setting, but their approach and the concept of Heroic Paths was a pretty cool addition to the ruleset. Sadly, this came about when I was really just "collecting" RPGs since I had no group and I've never had the chance to play. Now, with my interest in Savage Worlds, I wanted to bring the amazing setting of Midnight to Savage Worlds and, hopefully, get the opportunity to run at least one adventure set in the Savage Age of Shadow with my current group of players. What follows is a brief introduction and in the coming weeks, you'll discover (or re-discover) the races of Aryth and the land of Eredane.

Challenges will present a scenario that can be used in most any context. This is the first in a series intended to make overland travel a bit more interesting that just getting from point A to point B. Each challenge will include a brief setup of the events, the appropriate genres (if any), and some sample methods of resolution for two or three systems.
