Discussions and Optional Rules for Rifts


As stated in the title, these rules are optional. They are designed to be useful for games, both to fill loopholes in rules and make certain areas more playable and more enjoyable. In some cases, they are also designed to deal with situation which make case serious game balance issues.

Of specific interest are rules to make starship combat more dynamic with higher speeds and longer ranged. All of my starship write-ups use my revised starship rules.

Some rules written for Rifts Earth are also applicable for the Phase World / Three Galaxies setting and the reverse is true with some as well.
