Rifts wants players to shine?

Anybody who claims that RIFTS cares more about the players than it does about writer-fetish NPCs and their pointless stories obviously has never heard of Erin Tarn.

Or Splynncryth the Splugorth. Or Archie. Or Emperor Prosek. Or Lord Mez Frommaline! The 'miniboss' monster with a full page of backstory that no player will ever know, given that his whole purpose is to get blown up.

Too much NyQuil, in my opinion. Stupidly overimportant NPCs is one of the top three reasons I dumped RIFTS (the other two being, of course, power creep and craptacular rules).

Someone drank their hater-aid today....

but seriously, you missing the point. Im not saying there arent any NPCs in Rift book there are quite a few. The diffrence is that the PC are what the games about. how many diffrent OCC/RCCs are there in any given book. compared to a presitge class in a D20 book? Rifts outshines any sourcebook as far as player info.

200 different types of crap is still crap. Yes, you can turn it into fertilizer and make it useful, but that says more about your resourcefulness than good things for the crap.

Rifts is crap. Some people can make it into fertilizer to play with, but don't get upset when the rest of us still complain about the smell you bring.

Hmmm.. more RIFTS hate. So sad.

We've had more fun with RIFTS and the entire Palladium system than any other system we've tried.

Pop into Roleplaying Open sometime and the love/hate relationship with Rifts will REALLY become apparant!

Remember the whole dustup over LUG vs CODA-system at Trek-RPG.net? :D

and that is the same thing I hear from hundreds of players. those who dismiss it simply because it isn't cool or hip deserve derision. those that have an informed opinion deserve theirs, but they don't deserve to deride yours.
