Over at Roleplay Online (RPOL.net) , there is a guy who has been asking for a Rifts Game for about a year now. I decided to go ahead and run this myself.

The scenario will be the same Smash and Grab mission that I described running for my home group a couple of years back. It involves two teams of PCs working on both sides of a temporal rift so that the team in the winter solstice is planting gear and otherwise supporting the team in the summer solstice. I am interested in seeing how a different group of players will act in the same scenario. There wouldn't be any surprises for the Tank 9 crew because I already described what happens, but you guys are always welcome at my virtual table regardless.

I may or may not run the game at RPOL. I am in only one current game over there. I think I would rather run the game at PlayByWeb or best of all over here. Where the game lands depends on where I kick up the most interest and whether players are willing to move.

It would be awesome to have you around, Mista P. For you, however, it might be predictable if you have ever read the threads here about the sessions I ran for my home group. If you are down, I am down also. I will actually be running two Rifts games cocurrently because two of the players wanted to roleplay something different. Tell me about your characters, and I can tell you where they best fit.

I'd like to play and I don't recall the specifics of what I read about your previous time travelling squad.

I think there was a banana that you were supposed to eat in order to go on a trip to save the world...am I close?

The NPC guy is a Space Elf who was a member of the brotherhood he is a werewolf with multiple selves and shift arms into weapons. He is a little off and goes by the name War-wolf

The other two you might have been in those games.
Sir Raven is 6’5” 250lbs of Ork Cyber-Knight. He has no love for humans but when it comes to other D-bees he lives and willing to die by the code. He is wearing full plate and all of the weapons he is carrying are close-combat/house to house style fighting. He is outspoken and quick to deal out what he feels his justice.  

Last but not least Jack also known as The Frostwalker a Momano Headhunter who is a Mutant polar bear standing at almost 9ft tall and over a thousand pounds. He has scars over his right eye which is now cybernetic as well as his left arm. In his NG “Buffalo” Riding Armor: It’s gray with the rawhide being black with red highlights, the shaggy mane is twice as long, white and has braids in it. The helmet it’s self has a pair of Xiticix mandible grafted to it. Jack never wears the bottom half. Around his neck he as a necklace of teeth and claws of things he as killed.

It no longer matters if you guys did read those threads or not. I have been asked to not run those specific adventure scenarios. I will be coming up with something new today.

Mister P, I remember Sir Raven. You volunteered him as a pre-gen for the game I ran a couple of years back. His backstory was awesome. I love that guy. I only vaguely remember Jack from his time as an NPC in the Xiticix War game. Regarding the space elf, I don't get it. What is a Space Elf? Is that an Aliens Unlimited thing? I cannot tell you right now whether Jack or the Space Elf will fit into the crossover game better because I am today trying to figure out what that game will be like. Which of the two, the Space Elf or Jack, would you rather use if you were sitting down to a gaming table at a convention with no foreknowledge about the game?

I got Lemuria last year and I've been itching to use it.  Any sort of restrictions?

Hey Z if you have run Sir Raven I will leave him off the table. Jack and War-wolf I will send you back stories tonight if I can and I and would be willing to play either one. Both could be such fun to run.

Z I sent you those and after going through game notes of old I might have a few others but lets start there and tell me what you think.

X, I am running two games. A Crack in Time is a game which will have no specific restrictions, but I want to see what you come up with before approving it. Good alignments would fit best. I suggest not going above level 5 and using no more than two books beyond the main rule book. For example, one player wants to make a City Rat who has three super abilities from HU. It's basically a play anything you want sort of game.

Identities is for 1st level characters. I previously suggested mercenary-friendly alignments and using only R:UE and New West books, and characters who could pass for human, but now that the adventure has changed, I'm open to anything so long as it isn't so powerful it will render the other PCs pointless. If your character cannot pass for human, he or she will be moved into a support role.

I have not read Lemuria, so surprise me.

P, I am approving Sir Raven for the mid-level game. His experience level isn't given in the notes, but his stats look just fine, so keep him at whatever level he is now. Actually, I will boost his stats in the instructions I give in the next post.

I am approving Jack Frostwalker for the 1st level game. I am not familiar with Momana Hunters, so is that class the source of his supernatural strength? What other class abilities do they get? We'll need to trim him down to 1st or 2nd level, probably 2nd considering his background. Would that be okay?

Both X and P, here are my special instructions.

Lord Z's Streamlined Skills:  Every skill gets a percentage, and that percentage is 25% at first level. Every skill increases at 5% per additional level. Bonuses from high I.Q. and classes may be applied. You may choose any skill you want as a Secondary Skill, but if you do this to take an advanced skill, please make sure you have the basic version of that skill first. Common sense applies to what is a basic skill and what is an advanced skill.

The TMNT Dodge:  I am invoking the old version of the Dodge from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles RPG. This means dodge bonuses are based upon Speed, not P.P. This will give both Jack and Raven a better defense option, I see, but dodging still eats up a melee attack.

There is no rush, Philly-Willy. Nobody else has brought me a finished character yet. In fact, I think Sir Raven is the closest to being finished, so you are ahead of the proverbial pack. Over the weekend, I will set up some forums on PlayByWeb.com and RPOL.net for these games, so you will be wanting to have accounts on both those sights eventually. My user name on both sites is ChupaBob. I might put together a small wiki on Obsidian Portal also if I find the time.

Regarding skills, what about RCC skills that start at a high level, like a common language or literacy?

Well, I've sent Z a character and received tentative approval.  Created an account on http://rpol.net/ and recalled my account on http://www.playbyweb.com/ (which I'd only used once before and it was for another game of Z's).  Nothing left to do but wait.

X, I received your message on PlayByWeb. In case you see it here first, I have giving you a choice. One of another of your characters needs to be rolled back to 1st level. I am leaving the decision to you of which character gets the diaper treatment. Whichever character you choose to become the greenhorn, Kale or Jonathon, is the character who will appear int he PlayByWeb game. The other one goes to RPOL.net.

Oh heck, if I knew those guys were down, I would have planted the game right here on NexusNine. If they are willing to follow us to a different site, they are welcome. I will send them private messages.
