Where all can the charts for Nightbane abilities be found. I know they're in the core book, but where else? I'm wanting to pick up as many of the morphus tables as I can, and then create a random roll chart for my players to use when creating their character.

I think Between the Shadows had a few in the back. Through the Glass Darkly has none, while I'm not sure about Nightlands.

The Rifter 20 has more morphus tabels than all the printed nightbane books combined!

And in Rifter 15 are some NB/NS charts.

Funny thing happened last night. We were talking about how much of a fan-boy of Star Wars one of my players is. I jokingly stated that there ought to be a Fan-boy morphus chart.

Lo and behold.... there is.

The other player flips two pages in the Rifter, and hands it to me. I look down, and there it is. Fan boy morphus chart.

Beats me. It's possible that the Weird Clothing table in Rifter #1 was the intended precursor, though it had a different author. It could also have been an unpublished submission.

Ah well, it served us well these last 11 years. Here's an archived version: Morphus Tables

Looking at this table again, curiousity question:
The table lists Alien Appendages #2. Where's #1?

Also, any Rifters past 20 that have Morphus tables?

Has anyone made/posted an index of all the locations of Talents?

The morphus table above will be incredibly useful during character creation, a talent table would be useful for character creation and leveling up.

New Nightbane Chart
Appearance Table
Roll or select one.
01-20% — Almost human: The Nightbane's Morphus is almost totally human, except for one inhuman trait that might be disguised or concealed — although sometimes the one trait is inhuman enough to give away the character's true supernatural nature. Roll once on the Nightbane Characteristics Table to determine unusual characteristics. If the result asks for more than one characteristic, ignore it and reroll.
21-30% — Inhuman but beautiful: The Nightbane combined a beautiful appearance with rolls on the Unearthly Beauty Table and the Nightbane Characteristics Tables.
31-40% Marred Beauty: The character has a beautiful True Shape, but it is marred by a gruesome stigmata. Make rolls on the Unearthly Beauty Table, the Stigmata Table, and the Nightbane Characteristics Table.
41-50% Inhuman Shape: The Nightbane's True Shape is a gruesome mockery of humanity. Roll on the Stigmata and Nightbane Characteristics Table.
51-60% Lycanthrope: The Nightbane's Morphus is a mixture of animal and humanoid traits. Roll once on the Animal Form Table.
61-70% Monstrous Lycanthrope: Not only is the Morphus form animal-like, it has hideous deformities that give it a terrifying appearance. Roll on the Animal Form, Stigmata and Nightbane Characteristics Tables.
70-75% Mineral: Nightbanes have shapes that appear to be made from inorganic materials such as solid stone, metals or minerals; either crudely fashioned or life-like as if carefully sculpted. In other cases, the mineral aspects are only part of the body and can include large crystal formations, stone, crystal or metal spikes and/or horns, or limbs made of stone or metal. Mineral Table and the Nightbane Characteristics Tables
76-80% Plant: Nightbanes have shapes that appear to be made from plants spikes and/or horns, or limbs made of wood plant Table and the Nightbane Characteristics Tables
81-90% Bizarre: Roll on the Unearthly Beauty, Nightbane Characteristics, Animal Form, and Stigmata tables. Then exercise your imagination to combine the alien result.
91-00% Bizarre: Roll on the Unearthly Beauty, Nightbane Characteristics, Animal Form, mineral or plant and Stigmata tables. Then exercise your imagination to combine the alien result.
Nightbane Characteristics Table
01-20% Unusual Facial Features: Roll on the Unusual Facial
Features Table.
21-40% Biomechanical: Roll on the Biomechanical Table.
41-60% Alien Creature: Roll on the Alien Shape Table.
61-80% Unnatural Limbs: Roll on the Unnatural Limbs Table.
81-90% Two characteristics: Roll or select two categories.
Ignore any result of 61% or higher (alternatively, roll !D6xlO% to get a result between 10-60%). If you get the same characteristic twice, roll twice on the appropriate table.
91-95% Three characteristics: Roll or select three categories. Ignore any result of 61% or higher (alternatively, roll 1D6x10% to get a result between 10-60%). If you get the same characteristic twice, roll twice on the appropriate table.
96-00% Four Characteristics! As above, but roll four times.

*sigh* Its been (what, a decade?) and they still haven't made a consolidated list yet? The best book in the series is canceled? We waited til Hell fro0ze over, and he wonders why the book didnt sell.
And Kevin wonders why the series is dying? Im surprised the whole company isnt dying, all things considered.

If you're referring to Shadows of Light, there were financial reasons at the time. And it also seems to be hit or miss on whether people like it or feel it fits the genre.

I have not seen it, I would love to, and I think now that the financial reasons are moot, the company seems to have recovered, they should reprint it, or at least offer a PDF download of it for a nominal fee.

The 1st clothing table is the same as in the link TD posted. It's in like R1.
Weird Clothing table. The very last on TD's list

Ok. The response to this thread and keeping on-track with it is awesome. I've been lax in doing anything with it for my group, simply due to lack of time. I think it's time now to bust out with my excel skills and create a spreadsheet and random roll chart. Once I get that set up, I'll share it with anyone that asks. It may take a while though, because I'm going to want to verify locations for all of the tables.

I freaking LOVE Palladium fans. The dedication is simply awesome, and it doesn't seem like you can find that level of fan devotion for very many game systems at all.

That would be excellent. Looking at the table above, it looks like he doesn't have anything after Rifter 20. I'm assuming there has been morphus tables since then (I don't have much after 16)?

A table that emulates powers from HU. Not necessarily the uber-powerful ones, just appearances and lesser-powerful ones.

Maybe add in some of the mutation tables from Rifts, too.
When you do make one, please let me know. I dont play much anymore, but thats more from lack of gamers in the area than anything else, and I love to kjeep these works for others that ask. (with proper credit to them, of course)

I think it's time now to bust out with my excel skills and create a spreadsheet and random roll chart. Once I get that set up, I'll share it with anyone that asks. It may take a while though, because I'm going to want to verify locations for all of the tables.

That would be excellent. Looking at the table above, it looks like he doesn't have anything after Rifter 20. I'm assuming there has been morphus tables since then (I don't have much after 16)?


I am missing Rifter issues 34-37. Of the issues I do have, no new Morphus tables appeared between issues 20 and 42. I'll update the list to include issues 42 and 44.

Comment: I like magic.
The main thing I think would be useful is a table that references all the sourcebooks and all the Rifters which supplement Morphus tables (and GMs rerolling whenever they get a result they don't want to use). The Rifter supplements usually came with tables but only referencing their own additions and not those in other Rifters.

That's because that would be a page or three in every Rifter that is incomplete as soon as another Rifter with Morphus tables comes out. Same with HU Powers, etc. By not posting and reposting those tables in every issue of the Rifter, they save pages and keep costs down.

Instead, there needs to be official randomizing tables on the website that get updated everytime new Morphus tables and HU powers are published, downloadable as FREE PDFs.

will the new book have a semi-complete listing? Or will it be the same hacked up cut%paste that drove so many ways

I AM trying to compile everything, and have a lot done, but between work and school...it's taking a long time. Once I have it completed, I'm planning on sending it in as a Rifter submission.

One of the problems I'm coming across is that some of the traits almost duplicate each other. Only, they have bonuses to attributes or other things that are fairly different. And some of the tables need to be merged or organized differently. Also, a few of the traits, if combined, might contradict one another, which of course could make sense for the more confused characters out there.

Basically, the structure is still fairly similar.

First - determine the number of traits
Next - determine the type of traits
Last - compile bonuses and work with GM to merge it all into a somewhat sensible lump of awesome

I'm also working on an accompanying article regarding how to make the resulting morphus be a reflection of the character's personality, history, and stats in facade.

EDIT - Ok. Just looked at my newly acquired copy of the Nightbane Survival Guide. (Very nice job!). I think it tweeks things a bit, but I'm hoping to be more expansive. I'm going to complete the job, including the new material, for my own use and I will submit it. But I think that the morphus rules/attributes in the new book seem like a good way to update too.

I suppose that is TECHNICALLY a horrible monster...but not in the way the game intended...

No, because talents arn't superpowers. They're talents.

No, Anti-magic cloud and similar anti-magic stuff won't work either. They arn't magic. They are a completely unique force, utterly unrelated to anything else in palladium. And no, there is no way to negate them either.

I'm pretty sure if you pump enough bullets fast enough into a Nightbane that will negate their ability to use their talents....

Why? A save vs pain to continue, and that marvelous healing factor, and things are still going fine, right up till he uses his supernatural strength to throw a car at you :D

Of course, it depends on the gameworld. Heroes is fine for that; Rifts is a nightmare (figuring damage for a thrown SAMAS was fun, though) and the other games where it isnt possible reduce the craziness. Except N&SS; a NB with Tai Chi, where he can pump his chi into raising his strength even higher can get really scary, really fast :mrgreen:

I think Dan meant that a Nightbane's death would negate their talents.

I consider them magical so in my games anti-magic cloud and similar stuff would stop them. If you know of somewhere in the books that says otherwise, I'd love to know where so I can read that I'm doing this wrong.

Sorry, missed the "snark" tags. It was supposeed to be funny.
But then, that whole save vs dying might finally come in handy for once :mrgreen: Usually, ya just throw a car at the problem and its solved. (Big problems may require a buss)

Several, actually. What timespan are you referring to?

One thing I love about being a professional lurker: no matter how many times my "date joined" gets rebooted for various reasons :oops: It doesnt change the fact that Ive been here in one name or another since 1996, back when there were only a handful of us deadboys posting :mrgreen:
(bonus points if anyone can guess which one I was :lol: )







I posted on the PDF, and I will here too: I was surprised at the price of the Shadows of Light price on Drive Thru. Most companies that sell OOP/dropped books that wont be coming back usually slash the price to under $3 (Mongoose usually sells for 50cents) Does this mean that SoL is going to be reworked and brought back? or is this just standard PB pricing for all books at DT?

It would have been pre 2001...back at the old threaded boards. If I remember now, he went by BruteForce, no space; internal capitalization.

If I had to guess to a former login name, I would consider a guess that you used to post by the initials C.M.

The NB-SG complies the Offical Tables in NB, NB-NL, NB-BtS, and NB-SG together.
It does not include the Rifter Tables though.

The Fanboy Table was Cool.
I use it for a NB to gain the Exact Appearance, Cloths, Weapons, Voice of Whatever they are a Fanboy Of. Then use the other Tables to build the NB-Features it would have anyways.
