Perhaps you're wondering what the characters featured in the "Rifts Misadventures" session recaps look like. Well, wonder no more:
|Rifts by EUDETENIS|
Center right: Valerie Cain, Amazon cyborg wildchild, Praxian Headhunter
Center: Katrina Mansfield, Psi-Stalker (who I've mentioned but hasn't shown up yet, in-game)
Top: Arisis Solstice, radiant daughter of Atlas, Titan Cyber-Knight
The artwork of our GM, Kent Bonifield, will always be the definitive take on our Rifts characters, but I still get a kick out of seeing other artists' interpretations of them. This particular version is a piece I commissioned from the Brazil-based manga-ka EUDETENIS that I'm very happy with. I love the "big happy family" vibe emanating from her artwork.
I've commissioned one other Rifts piece -- a character design sheet by the Polish animation artist Precia-T -- which depicts Max in the olden days, shortly after leaving his hometown (i.e. in the original, pre-reboot campaign). It's a lot of fun for me to see our characters interpreted in a style that is so heavily influenced by manga and anime, since I was myself very heavily influenced by those media when I started playing Rifts.
Anyway, sorry for the lack of content (besides eye candy) today. It looks like I will be serving a short stint in the DM chair to kick off a D&D 5E campaign soon, so if you're sick of Rifts posts and want me to get back to the dungeons already, you're in luck. Stay tuned.
