Bundle of Holding deal!

August 15th, 2018

As a Guide to the Megaverse(tm), I feel it is only fitting to let our listeners know that there is a deal going on right now for the Essential Rifts items, including the GM's Guide as well as the World books for North America.  My group rather enjoys the New West setting(and we'll be going back there again someday). Beating the threshold means more books, including one of my favorite books, the Book of Magic! 

Currently there's five more days on the big BoH sale, and I encourage you all to partake in the deal.


1) The Rifts® Essentials Bundle of Holding


The Rifts® Essentials gets you the core rule book and a few key supplements for the science-fantasy Rifts® setting. This bargain-priced revival of the popular 2017 offer is your starting point for a campaign of mind-blowing adventure across a future Earth shattered by countless otherworldly invaders, demons and monsters. And after you get this Essentials collection, check out the all-NEW Rifts® World Books offer with supplements and sourcebooks for an epic campaign stretching across North America; described below).
