The Glitterbois #0071: Rifts Atlantis Review

Our trek through the Rifts World Book series continues with World Book 2: Atlantis!

Responding to a request from our listener “jonesy” we are taking a deep look at a somewhat more obscure title from Palladium: the Splicers Role-Playing Game.

Now we dive into the line of spin-off “Dimension Books” for the Rifts Roleplaying game, starting with the official first of that line: Wormwood! Kicking the line off with a resounding crunch, Wormwood is an epic heavy metal, good vs evil, “hold a candle against the great dark tide” kind of campaign setting. There’s a lot here to talk about, so give us a listen and then let us know your favorite parts of this weird action horror game world!
