Rifts Ultimate Edition cover is up
« on: June 17, 2005, 01:57:51 PM »
What is Rifts Ultimate Edition? In a nutshell: everything rewritten, reorganized, updated and improved by the original writer and creator, Kevin Siembieda. And we've gotten plenty of fan/player input we're incorporating.

To get a look at the cover, and more details, go here:

ya I saw that.  It looks good though my favoite RIFTS corebook cover is the Special edition Hardback (black with a silver logo for those that don't know).  I'm looking forward to this book.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

I'm very excited for Ultimate Rifts as well--I think some of the tweaks to the rule system in recent books, like Splicers and Beyond the Supernatural, will be a great fit for Rifts.

There's a pic of the final cover for the hardback edition, I wish there was a "silver" edtion like when they did the original hardback for RIFTS since I like the hardback's simplist cover better but don't want to shell out $70.

And now the book is at the printer: http://www.palladiumbooks.com/press/press2005-07a.html

I expect it to be on shelves (and in my mailbox) within the next couple of weeks, so get ready for a burst of "Fellfrosch is obsessed with Rifts" activity.

And Ultimate Rifts has shipped! Huzzah, hooray, and all of that. Everybody run out and grasp vainly at nothing, because it will be sold out by the time you get there.
