One of Palladium Game's newer games is Dead Reign. I have been a little critical of some aspects of Palladium but overall I quite like what they have done with Dead Reign. This is the fourth sourcebook in the Dead Reign series.

The thing about so many novels based on games is they often really suck. I think its actually kind of hard to do really. When its a RPG everyone plays the game differently. Yet the novel has to try and be the quintessential version of the game. What does that mean exactly? How can a game that is inherently different for each person have one version? I don't think it can and that can mean that no one will be happy. In the end some of the game novels were quite good.

Of all the Rifts World Books I own I would have to say the one I like best is Japan. I'm not going to say its the best written or the best book overall. Merely that it is the best book for my style of game. Japan can be a difficult play to write about. Its a mix of old and new that doesn't exist much outside of Asia and its not something we Westerners always grasp at all well. Rifts Japan does (for the scope of the book) a fair job of trying to make the Japan of the Rifts setting to be consistent to itself at least.

Lemuria is the 32nd world book for the Rifts RPG released by Palladium books. I do like Rifts but i have always struggled with the vast divergence of genre's that make up the Rifts setting. I fully appreciate and understand why such a collection appeals to people. To some the constant uncertainty as to what they will face whether it be a powered armored soldier, a mage or a dragon is an exciting prospect. There are GM's who have towns filled with hi-tech soldiers next to Pan dimensional intergalactic beings.

Game distributor Ulisses Spiele bring life back to Torg.
The setting dates back to the height of RP in the 1990s, originally released by West End games the new hard cover rulebook for Torg is set for a 2016 release and is getting a facelift to both its rules as modern games lean more on storytelling and branding. Torg: Eternity has a solid connection to the past as several key staff have been involved with the original game. This is a great thing to see for the RP Industry and gamers and we hope the release will be a success.
