RIFTS® is a science fiction fantasy game in a post-apocalyptic setting. It is an adventure setting where the magical, supernatural and alien may come to you, or you may find them. An environment where technology and science co-exist and clash with magic and psychic power. Robot warriors and power armored troops battle dragons, demons, and magic users. People of science and technology share a Megaverse® with magic-wielding sorcerers, gods of legend, Elemental beings, demons, creatures of magic, aliens, and the forces of light and dark.
The Rifts® Living Campaign is a shared campaign setting with a codified set of rules for the campaign that govern how to build and advance characters as well as how the campaign will handle rules elements of the setting. Campaign Game masters create, distribute, and manage new adventures in this campaign setting, and administer a player database and promote various products. Our Living Campaign lets players build and advance characters, develop their personalities, and forge relationships. The Rifts® Living campaign games are run at conventions, game days and other gatherings. Adventures are offered at conventions with premade characters that fit to the story, as well as player made characters.

Players shall be split between NPECC and their mythical foes, and enact a number of fearsome battles. This game has been substantially corrected after its initial run, and redesigned in response to player feedback. Migard wants YOU!
