But I am wondering about a couple of points. First off, is it ok to reference/use material from previous issues of the Rifter? Would there be any issues with that? Secondly, is it alright to reference previously published canon adventures/NPCs and the like? Don't want to waste everybody's time submitting the something that has no chance of flying.

Seems odd to reply to myself, but after reading some old Rifters I answered my own question. Duh! Read before speaking. Lol

Yo Jimbo,
:)
With any project the 1st step should always be doing your research. In the CAD class I took that was the one thing that was hammered into the class. Cause there might be something in appendix 24c.5 that effects how you do your work.

This is why when I wrote up my psionic device maker power cat. [Techno Psychic] I looked at all (four) of the classes (1 RCC [SA2] & 1 PCC [WB12] from rifts, 1 PCC from BTS/NB, & 1 OCC PF1) that already in canon before even started writing. This was so what I wrote would not conflict horribly with the what good text that was already written while fixing the broken set of rules from the RCC.

yep, I submitted it. Don't know why I have not had any response.

Thanks Drewkitty. Point well taken. What I am looking at sending in may go a bit against Canon but should stay close enough inbounds to make it viable.

I would think references are all right, as long as they don't interfere with understanding the piece. If another Rifter is mandatory for understanding the adventure, that might be too far. However, a something that adds depth or options should be fine.

Have reassessed the potential length of the adventure I am looking at and decided that a shorter version might be more well received, which excludes the need of a specific Rifter. Anything that I do need from an issue could be included if I do it this way.

Do you send your submissions by email or normal mail, the description seems contradicting.

Comment: Palladium Books Canon is set solely by Kevin Siembieda, either in person, or by his approval of published material.

You just described the vast majority of the Rifter :lol:
So you should be in good company.

I asked Wayne about this personally at Gencon, and he said that electronic submissions are welcome now with the attached pdf needed
