Seeking Rifts Game, Palladium or Savage Worlds
Looking for a somewhat unique game using/with the Rifts setting.

A sandbox setting where the players themselves are rifted in is what I am looking for. This has been done before and has created some really interesting games. An openness for the GM allowing the players, moving into RCCs and OCCs would be a good thing for the players.

If interested in GMing maybe we can get a group together for some Sandbox fun in the weird wild world of Rifts.

I'd be interested in joining this if it gets off the ground. Big fan of the Palladium system specifically for Robotech 'a la big stompy robots', but have a fair bit of Rifts source material and background in the setting as well.

I have no experience with Savage Worlds unfortunately.

Had a GM show interest, but they vanished.

I wouldn't mind a Rifts game.

I haven't done a Savage Rifts game yet. I had a character converted for the game but that one fell through.

Seeking Rifts Game, Palladium or Savage Worlds
I have been a long time palladium fan and just recently got into Savage Worlds rifts. I am willing to try to G.M. with the Caveat that I may need some assistance with rules mistakes. Also my track record as a G.M. is kind of poor but hey at least I will try.

I was considering doing a few solo games before I saw this thread, as too many players can become overwhelming, but if there is only a couple people interested o could probably manage up to 4. Though to be honest I would rather run two 2 player games then one 4 player. Let me know what y'all think

What exactly do you mean by moving into OCC and RCC? I get the sandbox concept, but where at in RIFTS World are you looking to place this sandbox and what kinds of sandboxy things is one trying to accomplish?

In my original idea the characters were from our mundane earth transported to Rifts Earth. Similar to the old D&D Cartoon, Image Comics new DIE series, Alice in Wonderland, Anime's Dual, El Hazard, Fushiki Yuki the Mysterious Play etc.

Since with Savage Worlds you create a character and then with Savage Rifts you place an Iconic Class on top of it, it's not too hard. I would like to go with SWADE the newest version of Savage Rifts so as new Savage Rifts books come out we are caught up. Though if the GM wished to go with Palladium Rifts or Savage Worlds Delux I would be ok with that.

I still like North America for adventuring. As for Sandboxy, seeing places, meeting characters, exploring the world and it's lore and the various places Rifts Earth and the Megaverse has to offer would be great.

Ok. In Palladium's system what you are wanting would be exponents harder than in Savage Rifts. That being said I don't have Savage Rifts and learning a new system is just beyond my time constraints at the moment. So I am gonna bow out. It sounds like a good idea and a great concept is half the battle.

 For those maybe not familiar with any of the above examples. In the old D&D cartoon a college professor transported a group of gamers into the D&D world. They had classes, but no idea how to do any of the stuff. So the mage was always messing up and so on.

The system has to be Savage World?

That would be better as I think the charm of Palladium is their clumsy old school system, but on second thought the last time I played Palladium it was as a Rifts GM here on rpol so I would rather be a player this time.

There are several of their settings I would like to try, as Splicers, Dead Reign, Nightbane, Palladium Fantasy etc.

Haven't played Splicers but have the book, Dead Reign is nigh unplayable unless you use Older Palladium weapon rules, Nightbane is fun and Palladium Fantasy is enjoyable.

Hmm never read a complaint about Dead Reign being unplayable.

Care to let me know why you think so?

From what I read so far, Nightbane seems to be a really nice and interesting game.

And Splicers, I really like the Terminator feel that it has.

Would really enjoy playing in any of these.

The big one is needing a Natural 17 roll to bash a Zombie's head in or to blow it's brains out. then there are some wonky rules about some types of weapons only doing half damage to the Undead.

Basically it makes it too hard to stop the Undead. In a good Zombie game the Undead are in small numbers easy to kill until you run into a horde of them. In Deadreign a 15th level Marine Scout/Sniper with their favorite sniper rifle has as much chance at shooting a Zombie in the head as a 1st level girlscout who has never held a firearm before.
