We are going to be running a Rifts game on Monday nights, already have 4 players, but thought if there was anyone really interested in our idea, I would throw it out there and see....
First the plot: The PCs are new rulers on a council of protectors that are in charge of a new kingdom in eastern Washington, Yakima to be specific. There is a head of the council and two other council members that are senior to the PCs, but the PCs will wield considerable political power in this new kingdom. The population of the city is 24k, there is some industry, but the area is mostly wild and needs taming. The PCs job is to 1) protect the people of the kingdom, 2) increase the wealth and safety of the kingdom, and 3) grow the kingdom.
Yes, I know this is very different from other games where you adventure and kill monsters, but have no fear, you will still have chances to kill, maim and abuse bad guys; but it will be mostly in the defense of your new kingdom, instead of random peoples you meet. We have an operator, a knight, a GB and a TBD at the moment.
Games will be on Mondays at about 6 pm Central time and last for 3 hours or a bit longer.
If you are interested in a political game of Rifts, and have a character that you think would be fun to play, post your ideas here.
BTW: The NPC members of the council are an exCS colonel, military specialist, a true atlantean air warlock, and the leader is a shifter that summons deevils. That's right, the calgary rift is only a mere 300 miles away
Alignment should be playable with a group. Level is 8, these are seasoned people that are to be in charge now, not some time later.
Most classes/races will be considered if they make sense for the game.
