Toon Tuesday: Wid the Iktektumik Hunter-Gatherer (Rifts)

I was always interested in the Diggers, but I’ve never made one until now. Their culture and lifestyle is similar to that of the Native American people, and thus they are similar to the Mastodonoid race (who are like the Inuit tribes), which I have enjoyed playing in the past. I do my best to avoid cultural stereotypes and appropriation, so let me know if anything is off!

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts Ultimate Edition, and Rifts World Book 30: D-Bees of North America.
Recommended Setting: Best suited to New West, Mexico, or other hot, desert regions. Ill-suited for high tech campaigns, better made for a wandering adventure that likens to his nomadic or Native tribal culture, or one that involves lots of tunnels and climbing.

Toon Tuesday: Eli the Dog-Boy CS Officer (Rifts)

My very first ever character was a feral Dog-Boy (Malamute breed), and I have played many, many Dog-Boys since then; they are my absolute favorite R.C.C.! However, my table rarely hosts pro-CS games, so I figured I would change it up a bit! For more information about his identification number, see rule 10 of my Rifts specific House Rules.

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts Ultimate Edition, Rifts World Book 11: Coalition War Campaign.
Recommended Setting: Coalition campaign. There is very little which could persuade Eli to leave the Coalition State military.

Toon Tuesday: Wire Witch the Human Psi-Operator (Rifts)

I think the Operator O.C.C. is honestly my favourite of all that Rifts offers. While not mechanically or technologically inclined myself, I absolutely love playing characters who could rig up a weaponized vehicle or hack into a secure network! And I’ve never written a Psi-Operator, so this was a lot of fun! Note that I’ve started assigning locations to most gear. While it’s a pain, the fact of the matter is that a lot of it isn’t necessarily on your character’s person if they have a home or vehicle, and if you should have your backpack snatched, perhaps it’s good not to store everything in it?

EDIT 10/2014: I have played this character and found her to be a lot of fun! Very comprehensive skills and an excellent supportive character who is surprisingly sturdy in combat as well.

Game: Palladium Books’ Rifts RPG
Books Needed: Rifts: Ultimate Edition.
Recommended Setting: Suited to technical support roles, good for any campaign or group, especially in matters of repair, hacking, and the stealing and trading of information and programs.
