Rifts Bestiary

Rifts® Bestiary™, Volume One – At the Printer – Ships July

Could the monsters known as Caterpillar Things be the larval form of the Mothman Monster? Is the Corrival Battler as aggressive and dangerous as adventurers claim? Are Darkhounds really magically mutated Dog Boys? Is that why they see Coalition soldiers as friends and allies? Ee-Bee Gee-Bees are kinda cute, how dangerous can they be? Is it true the animals and people slain by the Death Springer rise as zombies?! What on Rifts Earth is a Field Reaper?

This book reveals it all, and much more.

Designed with both Players and Game Masters in mind, with creatures that can be used as pets, companions, riding animals, attack animals, and even unlikely allies, as well as slobbering monsters and catalysts for adventure. Adult, juvenile, and young stages of life give every creature three different levels of power and danger. Presented as a complete ecosystem, with maps and details to bring each animal to life. All provide plenty of spice to add to your characters and adventures.

What’s Next?

The Rifter Number 83

The Rifter® #83 – In production – Ships July

The Rifter® #83 will offer source material for Rifts®, Heroes Unlimited™, Fantasy RPG® and more, and is in final production, entering layout next week.

The Rifter® is all about new ideas, pushing the envelope, trying new things and alternative methods, rules and approaches to create epic adventure! There is no one way to look at things. Open your mind to the infinite possibilities.

Remember, adventures and source material for one game setting can also be adapted to other world settings with some easy and obvious modifications. Unleash your imagination and use The Rifter® to fuel your own campaigns. Game Masters, surprise your players with a creature or villain they never see coming because it is adapted from material for another game setting. Or give your players optional characters to play or special abilities or gear from the pages of The Rifter®. Most of all, have fun.
