Earth: a world plagued by dimensional anomalies and portals to otherworldly environments — where fractures in space and time tear through reality and open doors to supernatural realms, strange dimensions, and alien worlds. It’s Rifts® from Palladium Books — and in July 2017 we presented an all-new Rifts® Bundle!
Centuries in the future, when magic energy came flooding back to Earth, it became a world plagued by dimensional anomalies and portals to otherworldly environments. From these portals emerge mythical gods and Elemental creatures, hordes of demons and monsters, dragons and creatures of magic, Shadow Beasts and the undead from dimensions of darkness, and aliens from countless realms. The Rifts appear where two or more lines of magic energy intersect to create a nexus point where magic and dimensional forces converge and create tears in reality to countless other worlds, dimensions and realities.
Earth itself has become an alien landscape where the people, cultures, technologies and madness of countless alien worlds and realities collide with our own. It is an environment simultaneously familiar and alien, wondrous and horrifying. The magical, supernatural, and alien may come to you, or you may find them. Technology and science co-exist and clash with magic and psychic power. Robot warriors and power-armored troops battle dragons, demons, and magicians. The setting is one of constant change, conflict, horror, wonderment, magic, and endless possibilities.
