Ok. So, with all this stuff that we still haven't done, I am creating a blog post to allow people to put up what their plans are for expanding our knowledge base on the wiki. My chief strategy is to create pages and edit them, but I know that some of you actually make cool programs that could help GMs a lot. Some of you even come from different backgrounds in the Palladium® Megaverse®. More power to you all.Read more >
Just wanted to drop in and say hello and hope I can helpful here.Read more >
Hi. I am just writing this because it is cool to be a new member of the Rifts Wikia! Anyone else who is exited about being a new member is welcome to come here and talk about it.Read more >
Some times it can be very difficult to find what you are looking for in the thousands of pages of Megaverse material. A searchable, categorized list with book and page numbers would be extremely useful.
So, this is my project... http://rifts.abits.biz/ Forum thread
I have added nearly every spell and psionic power. I have also added a lot of power armor.
Not much time to work on it, but I added a pile of power armor.
If anyone wants to you can add items easily by filling in the boxes on top. Fields can be updated like a spreadsheet if you click the "Allow Editing" check box.
Also, if you have a spreadsheet of anything rifts related send it to me. I can reformat it and import it into the database.
I think that when I next get some time I w…Read more >
I was just curious what other people used to GM with, ultimate or 1st edition? Why do like one over the other? Looking forward to getting other people's opinions.Read more >
Rifts – Random Item Generator
Rifts – Random NPC Generator
Rifts – Random Event Generator
Unless I get permission from Palladium themselves to make it public, these will be for personal use only. The item name generator will include stats of weapons, armors, value, and more.
The NPC generator will create a basic "NPC", including basic stats such as attributes, bonuses, items, personality, and so on.
The random event generator will be a GM's tool, for creating fast, simple, events that the players may choose to move upon. (It may be, such as a random kidnapping of orphans, people dying in backstreet alleys, everyone in town having nightmares; you name it: a lot!)
If I get more ideas for tools that may assist GMing; I will add them to the list.… Read more >
I have begun a project, mapping Rifts Earth (using google maps), adding key locations and information. I am excited to see how this will turn out!

I have found a perfect map of north america, so I will be scrapping this project. I will see if I can post a link to it in the Geo-political World page.

I think there is a fine line between posting "too much" and nothing at all. When reading throughout the books, finding information that could be posted at the wiki can be a tad difficult at times.
This is why I hope that wikia users will notify the administrator of the page(s) whenever they suspect some information may be "out of place". In Rifts Wikia's case, I would avoid posting "stats" and "rules information", and stick to "general information" about skills, magic, and whatnot.
Take this, for example; "Spell X forces the player to withdraw". Would this be considered "rule information" regarding the gameplay? I believe it "kinda" is. But if we cannot write something simple as this, is there anything about Spell X that we 'could' write? …Read more >
Previously, I had created a blog for the Wiki on Blogger (http://riftswiki.blogger.com). Since Wikia has this built in now, I am going to move these to this format.
We have surpassed 140 articles, and have a few regular contributors. Thank you to everyone who had added content to the Rifts Wiki!
Since this is the first post on the Wikia Blog, let's start off with the basics: DO NOT POST RPG RULE INFO. This means skill bonuses, stats, experience charts, MDC ratings, or even textual modifiers from an O.C.C. We are trying to adhere to Palladium's Internet Policy, and the more of this that gets added, the less likely they are to want us to continue. I have edited out everything I have found so far, but please try to keep the Wiki clear of them.
