I'm working on a customized HU2 near future cyberpunk setting, un-originally calling it Super-Punk, and need help compiling a list of official corporations from the various Palladium settings. In particular I'm looking for corporations from the Rifts and HU2 settings, but corporations from any Palladium setting is welcomed. I have many, but I'm sure there are just as many that I forgotten.

If there is already such a list on the boards I'd appreciate a link.

Thanks in advanced for anyone that helps!

The big corporations for me are the two that are in both HU and Rifts.

1- KLS, This company created the Glitterboy PA and other items in Rifts and I believe it is mentioned Villains unlimited and a few other books.

2- Cyberworks, this is corp that created ARCHIE 3 in Rifts and it is a major supplier of sonic and other weapons to SCRET teams in HU. I know it is in Villains Unl. and I believe it is in Century Station.

These are the two corporations I would focus on in a game like yours as there rival actually lead to a war in Mutants in Orbit.

A few other corps are:

Wilks Laser - This is in Rifts but it might be mentioned HU

Fabricators Inc. - is in Villains Unlimited

I believe the Century Station book has a few other corporations listed in it as well. Hope these help

Thanks! Those two for sure will have a big presence in the setting, as will Bio-Spawn from TMNT. I'd forgotten about Wilks! I'm just having a hard time remembering all the corporations from Rifts, and most of my books are in storage. I'd like to pepper some of the smaller ones into the setting to had some familiarity for the players. I'm picturing a game setting similar to Shadowrun or Cyberpunk, only instead of magic it has superpowers.

Shaper Corp. forgot all about them. South America based company responsible for mutant animals and mutant humans in Undersea and SA 1 & 2.

This is a good one to use if mutant animals are a part of your game.

That's a good one, would make a perfect rival to Bio-Spawn and would fit in great with the genre.

Naruni might be a difficult, but interesting one to work into such a setting; gives me a lot of diabolical ideas.
