Sure this setting is the Half Life 3 of Palladium Books, but let us give it a chance to see what it can do.

Do you want new people and places to visit, fight psionic cyborgs, or just try something new?

Comment: Lord of Chaos!
It should have the classic cyborgs and bot with new versions of each. The setting should be something along the hard sci-fi line. As alwasy the game should focus on the players with some updated and kick ass O.C.C.'s and a nice set of toys to complement them.

Over a decade and stilllllllllllll waiting.
Sorta like waiting for R.Talsorian's Mekton EX ; "We're waiting for the right time to publish...any day now..."
...please note; R.Talsorian is now a .PDF only clearing house for all their OLD back-stock titles.
Just saying. :demon:

Comment: Mondos non cogitarus, Consilium!
I agree with a lot in this thread.
The book should not only have the original Mechanoids (from the original series/the Trilogy reprint) but also the ones from Rifts SB 2. Bring in the Abberant Mechanoids. More details about the fleets and ships they use. What happens when an Oracle goes Rogue? What forces are allied against the Mechanoid threat, both spacefaring and planet-bound?
I can see special "Mechanoid Space" issues of the Rifier, expanding on the book (natch).

Comment: "I will not be silenced. I will not submit. I will find the truth and shout it to the world. "
My friends and I have talked about this several times and given the information history in the Rifts SB 2 we always thought the most interesting way to start Mechanoids Space would be to set up the galaxy first. All the aliens, alliances, and even conflicts. Then roll the Mechanoids out slow, most people won't even believe they are back. Then, the war starts.

World books could be set up with stats for before the war starts and then after. This gives a chance for lots of different campaign types.

I like that idea!

Maybe some insight into a day in the life of a Mechanoid. Creey and neat


Orbital and space combat would be cool

The ABM war.

Where did the Mechanoids go? What is that giant disc?

Lots of background material of cultures and adventures.

Make it a space opera like thing with lots of detail, get us involved with the setting.

But mostly I just want to see it happen. I should have asked Kevin at Fanfare. I had questions (and grumpy hungry kids)

All-original artwork - IMO, there's some pretty goofy art in the original books.

Comment: Rifts is a framework, if you don't like part of it don't use it.
I would like to see a recap of history for them, the evolution of what they have become in the mean time, a recap and history of how the small group that were brought to Rifts Earth are fairing.

Oh and strong editing to make sure there are not nasty C&P typos and tables which make no sense.

But then again, editing is what I want for all the books.

Well...

1) New Mechanoid vessels and types (at least 4)
2) Stats on a few important worlds (maybe 3 with the systems around them)
3) Set in the Phase World setting w/cross-over to Rifts Earth
4) New Psionic Powers
5) New Mechanoid robots
6) Motherships -revised-
7) Mechanoid combat tactics -defined in more detail-
8) New original art for EVERY mechanoid
9) A "main" Dimension book with the above, plus a sourcebook with new O.C.C.s and R.C.C.s for Phase World

I would like to see Mechanoids Space be an MDC setting. It should be an expansion of book 3, cover their return, the events leading up to the events in Rifts Source Book 2 and after.

I remember seeing references to Mechanoids Space in '94, this thread from 2012, and I see it listed as 'Coming Soon' in the store, but I am curious as to when you are actually expecting to release it.

I think it had one for a while, around 1993 or so.

Comment: Palladium Books Canon is set solely by Kevin Siembieda, either in person, or by his approval of published material.

Make Mechanoids Space a Rifts dimension book. i.e. make it an MDC book with some conversion notes for SDC worlds
