Rifts Minion War + Essentials – through Mon 27 Janby Bundle Operator Tuesday 7 January 2020 0 comments
1. Rifts Minion War [new]The demons of Hades plan dimensional conquest of their arch-rivals in the Hell known as Dyval. After an incursion into the setting of Palladium’s Heroes Unlimited superheroic RPG, the Minion War spills onto Rifts Earth, and the epicenter of the invasion is North America. Hellspawned armies by the tens of thousands cross the dimensional divide, unleashing plagues, seeking out magic artifacts, and building Hell Pits so they can unleash Hell on battleground Earth.
Unusually in Palladium history, the Minion War line supports many of the company’s game lines. The five-supplement sequence ultimately lets Rifts player groups create mixed parties of characters who would otherwise be ideologically opposed, but now fight side-by-side for the greater good. For the first time in history, the Coalition States, Northern Gun, the Manistique Imperium, Lazlo, New Lazlo, the Cyber-Knights, Lemurians, Free Quebec, D-Bees, mages, and many others stand together against a common enemy. Meanwhile, the Splugorth of Atlantis, Archie Three, and the Vanguard engage in their own shadow war against the invading demon hordes — and each other.
For just US$14.95 you get this new offer’s Starter Collection with DRM-free .PDF ebooks of the complete five-supplement Minion War sequence (retail value $66.50), including Hades, Pits of Hell and Dyval, Hell Unleashed (plus the Hades & Dyval Map Pack); Dimensional Outbreak (previously presented in the April 2019 Phase World Bundle); Armageddon Unlimited (previously in the February 2018 Heroes Unlimited Bundle); and the climax of the sequence, Megaverse in Flames.
And if you pay more than this offer’s threshold (average) price, which is set at $24.95 to start, you’ll level up and also get this offer’s entire Bonus Collection with six more titles worth an additional $63.50, including the popular Rifts Conversion Book One (Revised) and Conversion Book Two: Pantheons of the Megaverse; the first Dimension Book, Wormwood; the Coalition States character sourcebook Heroes of Humanity, and two more sourcebooks repeated from the Phase World offer, Heroes of the Megaverse and Naruni Wave 2.
2. Rifts Essentials
This July 2017 Rifts Essentials Bundle (previously revived in July 2018 and April 2019) is your best entry into the reality-bending setting of a shattered Earth that forms the main backgrop of the Minion War. If you’re new to the game, start here.
[from July 2017]
Rifts is set centuries in the future. Magic energy has flooded back to Earth, fracturing space, tearing through reality, and opening doors to supernatural realms, strange dimensions, and alien worlds. 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.
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.
This Essentials offer has the core rulebook and key basic supplements — everything you need to start adventuring across the rift-ravaged Earth. This offer’s Starter Collection includes the complete 384-page Rifts Ultimate Edition™, the Rifts Primer, and the very popular Sourcebook One™ — a $33.50 retail value for just $8.95.
And if you pay more than this Essentials offer’s threshold price ($19.95 to start), you’ll also receive this offer’s entire Bonus Collection with three more supplements worth an additional $45.50, including the Game Master Guide equipment collection, the Book of Magic,™ and the Game Master Kit with useful play aids and pregenerated characters.
Ten percent of each payment for these two Rifts offers (after gateway fees) goes to the charity designated by Palladium Books, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
The Hell Pit gapes, so get these two Rifts offers before they both fall in Monday, January 27.
