New Rifts Game - Wednesday Nights
Wednesday nights at 7 pm EST (we are considering 8pm as well) Falcon79, Eric, and myself, Dan, are going to be coGMing a Rifts game. Setting will be New West and we are shooting for a medium power level game. Game sessions will last 3-4 hours depending on how the game is going.
Character Creation Rules :
Attributes are per the book for the race in question, reroll 1's. For 2d6 you can roll one additional d6 if you get an 11 or 12 on your first two dice.
Please make an appointment with Dan or Eric to roll your character. Most days and times are fine.
For Humans and SDC races without exceptional abilities, there are some additional perks to be rolled, see Eric for the table.
Starting level is 4th, you get your OCC standard gear plus an additional 1.2 million credits worth of weapons, spells, whatever, as long as it is readily available in merctown.
House Rules :
(Eric has the complete list, PM Falcon79 and send him your email and he will email you a copy)
Weapons - lots of changes, see Eric for specifics. Mostly weapons have been improved to have what Eric feels is a more appropriate range or damage.
Ammo - AP and Ramjets do more damage, see Eric for specifics
Robots - a LOT more powerful and cheaper, yes Eric likes robots
For example, ranges are doubled on robot weapons, robots have 20% more MDC than listed, and they cost half as much.
Magic - Mages start with double base PPE. Magic items, additional PPE per level, etc. are all the same, it is just starting PPE that is doubled. All mages start with an additional 8 spells up to 8th level, you can choose the ones you want, you start with these.
Characters so Far:
possibly as well, but characters have yet to be submitted
It would be nice to have 6-7 PCs in the group, because inevitably someone has to drop due to a scheduling conflict or something. We could use a shifter for sure, maybe a psychic, and another man at arms or damage dealer wouldn't hurt. When it comes to characters, the first people that get completed character sheets to Eric or I are the ones that we will start with.
Please put your character in a text file or rtf file, like Wordpad. Eric uses Traipse and I use OpenRPG, so text files are the only way we can share info. PM me or Falcon79 for the email address to send your completed character to.
First session will be Wednesday April 18th, assuming we get 2-3 more characters complete by then. Looking forward to gaming with you
