I think I've got something

...a character for lostsatyr's WitchCraft game.

I'm revisiting the "medium with magic" angle, but with a slightly different set of skills than my character from the last game.

I took some of Haruie/Ayako from Mirage of Blaze, and things sort of went from there.

I'm rather excited about this character - hopefully she clicks with the group.

Whenever I check out a new game I always roll up between five and twenty blackbirds characters for the setting. Often times I don't even get a chance to play the game, as with Rifts or Trinity Aeon.

tis sad when an RPG publisher like Palladium Books goes under...

I always hoped they'd swallow their pride and put out a D20 version of Rifts. I mean, even if you hate D20 it's worth it for the crossover potential alone! You could run into anything from a drug-crazed half-ork to a jedi knight.

I've never played Rifts or anything from Palladium Books before, but I ran across an article about them having financial issues lately. The dir/pres guy stated that he's been doing "everything in his power?" bah.. They could do a D20 version like you said or find other alternatives to keep their games going.

D20s are not that bad and crossovers make good RP and have a high shock value in certain situations.

I believe that news article to be HERE!

Rifts is a post-holocaust game wherein detonation of hydrogen bombs on earth along the mystical ley lines opened up portals to other worlds and dimentions. As such, Earth became a mish-mash of cultures and confederacies and magic came back into the world, existing side by side with high technology much like Shadowrun. I always thought a D20 crossover guide would be a natural choice for the series.

derr... "rifts," makes senes now! :p I'm so stupid sometimes..

It sounds like something I would love to play/run sometime. Must look it up and maybe get material before it goes *poof*.

Personally, I like Nightbane better. Nightbane is about a group of young persons who discover they aren't human when the sun, moon and stars disappear for 24 hours in the year 2000.

These people are actually shape-shifters, who can manifest their personality onto their bodies, thus becoming stronger/faster and usually MUCH scarier.

At the same time, the rulers from where these shape-shifters originally came from decide to invade Earth, but they do so using cold-war tactics.

Basically, the characters are to deal with the invasion, while trying to come to grips with their new monstrous forms.

That sounds like a very fun and interesting game especially from a psychological perspective.

In most RPGs there are awesome powers and people with these powers just flaunt around with them. Coming to terms with yourself and having awesome powers would be a very interesting game indeed.

It was. And although it can be fairly munchkin at times, there's good opportunities for RPing.

It's by the same person who wrote Witchcraft (with the exception of the last book).

Sadly, the only books that actually talk about the protagonists are the main book, and the second book. The third deals strictly with bad-guys. The 4th deals with moratal wizards. And the last is basically about angels... (Ya...)
