Howdy! I just read where you guys were going to be creating a Savage World's version of RIFTS. I am SO excited to read that! I know it'll be awhile in coming, what with it just being announced and all, but I'm looking forward to being able to get it. I LOVE the RIFTS setting, but the rules and power creep really turned me off it. I think you guys could do it great justice Smile

This makes me very happy too! Loves the world of Rifts but never liked the crunchy system. Rifts + Savage Worlds = Win!

Razz Very Happy Razz

I recall Sean Patrick Fannon mentioning such a deal being in the works way back at ConCarolinas 2009. Since then, I had presumed that something had gone wrong and it had become vaporware. Glad to see that's not the case.

It's fantastic news all around, I think. ^_^

Hey, new to the forum, but I want to say, this is pretty much going to take over my group. I mean, really, if somebody had said "what kind of RPG do you wish would get published?" SW Rifts would be my response.

Funny story: We actually tried SW on a lark after we failed to get a Rifts game to launch. And everyone fell in love with SW within two sessions.

Mind blown.
If anyone can pull it off, it is this team.

I don't know much about RIFTs but I found this announcement very exciting for this very possibility.

That said, it's SW so I may very well gift RIFTS a good look see now.

Don't count on it. Rifts is something owned by Palladium. Meanwhile, Robotech is licensed to them by Harmony Gold, who have a reputation for being capricious with allowing anyone else to handle that property.

At the very least, it will be much easier to kitbash a Savaged Robotech with SW RIFTS doing the heavy lifting, mechanics-wise.
