Rifts_LogoRifts:

Its 100 years into the future.  Humankind has enjoyed a Golden Age of peace, prosperity, and advancement.  We have conquered most diseases, bottled the Fountain of Youth, extended our life spans to 200+ years, and our toys are nano-technology and the genetic code.  Our cities look like something out of a science fiction novel complete with robots, androids, and flying cars.  Our future appears grand…  And then it comes to a crashing stop.

Imagine the end of the world; the movies The Day After Tomorrow meets Nightmare on Elm Street.

Now, fast forward 300 years.  It is the same Earth, but one you’d barely recognize.  It has been transformed into a patchwork of a thousand alien worlds with doorways to infinite realities.

Welcome to RIFTS’ Earth, the intersection to the infinite Megaverse.  A bus stop where dragons, gods, and dimensional travelers come to find or create a dimensional door to wherever it is they want to go; a nexus to the Megaverse.

deadreignDead Reign: 

In Dead Reign, the dead of have risen and it would seem the end of the world.  Civilization crumbles in a matter of days as hundreds of millions of people die and rise as the walking dead.  The hundreds of millions of people who fall to the zombies also rise to join the growing legions of undead.  Then the world goes silent.

You are on your own.  The army is M.I.A.  There is no government.  No television, radio, or internet.  No media, cell phones, or communications of any kind.  Cities and towns have gone dark, and zombies fill the streets.

Death Cults have risen, promising protection from the walking dead, while Retro-Savages have forsaken technology and sacrifice the living to the zombies in hopes of bringing an end to the nightmare.  Brave human survivors refuse to lie down and die!  They struggle to forge safe havens away from the cities, rescue other survivors and battle the walking dead without respite.

 And the risen dead?  The zombies?  For now, at least, the planet is theirs.  The dead now reign.

heroesHeroes Unlimited:

There has never been a single superhero RPG like Heroes Unlimited that enables players and Game Masters to create virtually every type of hero imaginable…  Mutants, superhumans, alien visitors, super-sleuths, weapon masters, cyborgs, robots, psychics, masters of the mystic arts, super-soldiers, genius investors, and even crazy heroes.

Splicers:

splicersSplicers is a role-playing game that combines science fiction and horror in a post-apocalyptic setting on a world that could be Earth or a colony world.  The people themselves don’t know.

What was once a world dominated by humans and advanced civilization is now a world in ruins.  The once great cities are shattered ruins or being torn down and terra-formed into lush forests.  The few cities that do exist are either historical recreations populated by androids or Retro-Villages, an innocent euphemism for a “zoo” for humans.

How did all this happen?  The Machine took over, decided humans were vermin that needed to be exterminated, and sent a couple billion robots to wipe out humankind.

Our story starts out generations later, as the Human Resistance makes its boldest move to reclaim parts of their world and find a way to stop the insane Machine.  It is a story of sacrifice and triumph, of undying spirit and weird science.
