    So in wormwood, is the ground just scaby or is dirt-like

      It's flesh-like, with layers of dermis (no blood, just skin) and pustules of fluids (water, blood, corruption) growing like bushes all over the place. There's no soil/dirt on Wormwood.

        Both. That is like asking if the ground on Earth is Rocky or crumbly. The planet terrain manifests different forms that are still just as corruptedly biologic

        Scabby. maximum scabby.

        The sandy desert is like made from skin cells and crystalline powder resin... but if your walking from town to town, is there in paths or "dirt" roads?

          Roads would most likely be areas of hardened tissue that has been calloused over from frequent travel. People would find a combination of the root of least resistance along with the safest path, which could lead a map of roads to look similar to other organic formations like veins Etc

      RIFTs is already getting fused in Savage Worlds, even if the guys at Savage Worlds doesn't understand that the weird and unashamed crazy is the whole appeal. So for RIFTs to increase in popularity just promote and play Savage World games.

      I doubt it. Palladium rules are too complicated for 5E fans to understand and the settings are too crazy for them to relate to whatever fantasy tv show is popular this month.

      There's just too many rules and books in Rifts alone for the average normie to get into it.

        Anyone that thinks palladium is complicated is retarded, its just AD&D with defender rules. The issue is the internet talking heads have talked shit on rifts and palladium so long its an "accepted fact" the rules are broken.
        They can never point to any real problems when asked and no access to a web browser+30 minutes.

    the subject header should read /rifts/ or /palladium/

                I forgot to turn the page:
                >Spells: Knows all 10th level air warlock spells as well as Summon Storm, Armor Pizza, Luck Curse, Sickness, Spoil, Summon and Control Rodents, and Horror all at tenth level.
                >Special note: Big Stink is a very dirty elemental and all his spells tend to leave a grimy layer of filth. This is especially evident in his air spells which is like getting hit with a paint sprayer on top of the normal effects.

                I think this is campaing ready!

                I've read worse in it! Probably!
