Hello everyone,

I got some time off and if our web guy is able to put up the blog CMS I'd like to get this things rolling a little - want to showcase some of our creations before the new Rifts books hit so we can say "we did that first!"

So, what's your favourite creation you've seen on site so far - IF, Race, Edges, House Rules, etc?


Didn't have a signature but wanted the 1 EP for using OOC tags!

The A.R.E.S.Hero Iconic Framework is incredible. It does for R.C.C.'s and P.C.C.'s what the M.A.R.S. does for O.C.C.'s.

Also the character Saul Goodwright is a great example of retrapping something from an existing I.F.

I’ll have to redo the introduction for ARES. But I agree it’s one I’d want up there. Also, the cyborg variants.

I would say start with ARES,
When that is done a showcase of converted races, as I noticed that people love converted races a whole lot.

I would not do tattoo magic as it is likely soon to come in an official version and our site version it too complicated to be considered Savage for many SW lovers IMO.

    our tattoo list might be, our tattoo rules themselves, not so much. They are enchanted items with a strain cost.

    Solid ideas so far. I also like the Bandito Big Bore weapon conversions quite a bit.
