Yes, this is a special, early Weekly Update to announce the launch of Pinnacle Entertainment Group’s Rifts® RPG game line for the Savage Worlds game system. Plus, we have a one week Palladium Rifts® sale to help kick off the launch for the Savage Worlds Rifts® Kickstarter. Read on.
UPDATE: Savage Worlds Rifts® Kickstarter is LIVE – and shattering goals
The Kickstarter launched at noon Eastern time and made its goal in two and a half minutes! It is now rocketing to new heights. Awesome. Check it out.
Pinnacle is helping to expand the Rifts® Megaverse® by adapting Rifts® to their award winning Savage Worlds game system. The adaptation is a labor of love created by people who know Rifts® and care about its fans. Thank you Sean Patrick Fannon and Ross Watson – and congrats to Shane, Jodi, Aaron and everyone involved in this exciting project. I have enjoyed reading everything I have seen from Sean and Ross. They have been masterful at capturing and encapsulating Rifts® for people who have never played, while making it fun for us who know Rifts® inside and out. The color artwork throughout is pretty awesome, too. Seeing all of this has made me excited about Rifts®, and I created this world! Make sure you check out the cool, limited time Kickstarter items, too.
Blend Palladium’s Rifts® source material with Savage Worlds and vice versa. Palladium’s Rifts® fans and collectors may want these full color, well written books just to read and own if nothing else, but there are all kinds of cool ideas, random tables and adventures you can easily incorporate in your current Rifts® games.
Savage Worlds players can learn more about Rifts Earth right now or any time by picking up Rifts® Ultimate Edition and any number of World Books and sourcebooks. To make that easier, Palladium presents the Rifts® Savage Sale with core rule books and some notable sourcebooks as part of the savings. Enjoy.
