And you thought Rifts Earth was a savage place to live before!!!
I’m super excited to see how Rifts plays out in the Savage Worlds system. Just to take a second and date myself, I was in High school as Rifts was rolling out in the 90’s and dove greedily into a worlds were dragons and power armored warriors clashed and rediscovered magic are being used and new forms of Techno-wizards appear (Mind you those Leather fighter pilot goggle wearing magic item makers were one of the early Steampunk character types I’d ever seen in a game not D&D at the time and I always loved playing them!!!). Rifts was a huge game world that has grown more and more over the decades with multiple book shelves of mine filled with world books that just add so much more to the setting and Character options.
I know there are a lot of voices that see the game mechanic as a negative when reviewing the system as a hole and the MDC system as being past its time. Others I know love the system. Personally I know it does slow the game momentum down and causes TPK’s or issues balancing groups but a good GM will talk with his players on what should and shouldn’t be used in the game (Nothing worse than being a glitter boy pilot stuck without your suit in a city storyline).
But back on point here, The Rifts IP from Palladium books is getting a refreshing face list, same old world but with some new faces, Character creation and System mechanics. Next Saturday I’ll be At Isle of Games getting my first taste of the game with the Savage Worlds system and I really looking forward to it!!!
Along with getting a sneak peak of the books that will be coming out I already backed the new Kickstarter for the book, which by the way hit their goal in the first TWO MINUTES of launching!
I of course jumped in after the first day so a TON of limited edition things had been scooped up already but I’m pledged on the “Everything GM level” so you’ll definitely be seeing some reviews and showcasing of the products here, on the podcast and on our YouTube channel At this point they’ve unlocked over 24 Stretch goals and the number keep raising!
I hope if you get a chance you can check out the Kickstarter and show it a little love.
Today I got asked a great question on Twitter from a long time listener of our Scion RPG Ragnarok & Roll, a Scion Hero to Ragnarok story podcast asked me how to help the group keep making more podcasts? I actually been asked this once or twice and figured I should write up something in all the ways we all can help keeping our podcasts and YouTube channel making content and share cool stuff:
1 We need to keep enjoying making cool stuff! If you know me you know I’m always up for sharing cool things and willing to burn the midnight oil editing stuff and I’ll keep at it hoping to have the podcast as an actual full time paying gig!
2 Share what you love! We love sharing and please if you can share our podcasts, Meme’s and videos. Also shoot us feedback, I know the group love the links, jokes and questions fans send into us! Speaking of which we need another cast Q&A soon, so feel free to email Us your questions fro Character and players, please subject them “Q&A” and send them to Creativeplaypodcastnet@gmail.com

6 Support the site by using links for our favorite RPG products on Amazon! If your like me you spend too much time shopping on the sweet sales mistress I call Amazon, but by using our links we get a tiny sliver of a copper, but these add up.

8 Help us out on patreon.com/cppn! This site helps us pay to keep the lights on and more than one episode up at a time, if you can even just $1 a month is a huge help (We average 30,000+ listens a month, imagine if everyone gave us the cost of a single Starbucks coffee once a month, We could add so much more content and give so much back. Personally I’d do so many favors for our supporters if I could make this a full time gig!!!!) Any amount is GREATLY appreciated! https://www.patreon.com/cppn

10 and Finally be kind to each other and support makers in your community I’ve heard of too many Makers, Cosplayers and Game designers get their dreams and hopes crushed and at the very least we can choose to be kind and supportive as people to each other and be kind to our fellow humans who have that amazing zeal to create and share!
