This issue of The Rifter is truly spectacular with about 48 pages of “official” source material for Rifts (20 pages of “official” Rifts Vampires source material, new Necromancy spells, a Northern Gun robot, and the missing Rifts Black Market experience tables!), plus detailed castle floor plans and descriptions that can be dropped into any Palladium Fantasy campaign anywhere you need one, plus some epic Heroes Unlimited source material I may expand into a complete sourcebook in the future, news and information.

Since 2013 is the Palladium Fantasy RPG’s 30 Year Anniversary, they are trying to include something special for the Fantasy RPG line in every issue. This issue has that detailed castle and many maps/floor plans and the cover reprints the popular Kevin Long Palladium Fantasy RPG cover from the 1980s. In fact, EVERY cover of The Rifter in 2013 will be a fantasy illustration. Last issue was Amy L. Ashbaugh, this issue a classic Kevin Long, next issue’s cover will be by Chuck Walton. Still trying to decide who will do the October issue.

Each and every issue of The Rifter is an idea factory that helps players and Game Masters to generate new ideas and keep their games fresh. It provides useful, ready to go, source material gamers can just drop into their ongoing games. A doorway to new possibilities and numerous Palladium role-playing worlds. It offers new monsters, villains, characters, O.C.C.s, powers, magic, weapons, adventure and ideas for your games. It presents new villains, monsters and dangers to battle, and new ideas to consider. Every issue has material for Rifts and at least two or three other Palladium game lines.

The Rifter Number 62 includes:

Rifts – OFFICIAL Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook Bonus Material – by Kevin Siembieda and Matthew Clements. Awesome, fun stuff we cut from the sourcebook due to page count considerations. Heck, we had already increased the Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook from 96 pages to 128, and then to 160. The book finally topped out at 176 pages and we still had source material and ideas that Kevin Siembieda finished up for inclusion in this issue of The Rifter.
      •More about the secret Vampire Special Forces Organization, Deathspike.
      •More Deathspike O.C.C.s including Werewolf Agents.
      •Two notable Deathspike leaders.
      •The vampires’ Top Ten Enemies List.
      •Vampire Harvesters and their “Meat Wagons.”
      •Some additional vampire fighting gear.
      •11 Hook, Line and Sinker Adventures.
Rifts – OFFICIAL Black Market O.C.C. Experience Tables – by Kevin Siembieda. Please note that the Experience Tables will also be made available online for free in the next week or so. Please make sure people who purchased Rifts® Black Market know about that.
Rifts – OFFICIAL Necromancy and Bone Magic spells. What else is there to say than more magic and darkness for your Necromancers (and the African Witch).
Rifts Northern Gun Sneak Preview. Kevin is selecting one of the NG Robots and artwork to give you another taste of what’s coming in May.
Palladium Fantasy source material. A very detailed presentation of a castle with dozens maps and floor plans, plus a general description.
Heroes Unlimited source material for making your heroes international police. It is an idea that Kevin Siembieda thought was so perfect for a setting with superhumans that he is thinking about expanding this material into an entire sourcebook.
