Atlantis is the heart of the Rifts setting, even moreso than North America. It’s an evil empire run by a godlike alien intelligence who just wants to sell you some rune swords and slaves. It is the ultimate RPG shop for murderhobos. Faust, Shaun, and I delve into the geography and culture of Atlantis, at least as much as we can in one episode. Clearly, this will be a two parter. Check out that swole owl man!
Rifts Sourcebook One is a hodgepodge of new villains, monsters, robots, and GEAR. But more importantly it introduces a new antagonist, the evil AI, ARCHIE THREE. There’s an entire adventure based on fighting the AI’s fake evil brain! It’s not that great of an adventure but who cares because fake alien warrior women robots!
Shaun and I guide Faust back into the depths of Rifts. Find out what happened to both the West and East coasts after the Rifts! Find out steroids are more powerful than bionics! Learn the true measure of a hero by their boxing ability! All this and more as we try to get through the random insanity of Rifts.
In our first episode of Palladium Poisoning, Shaun and I try to explain the basic premise of Rifts to Faust as well as some of the character classes. So if you want to hear about what life 300 years after nuclear apocalypse looks like, then dig in!
