Comment: I love how people are quick to make demands, make spurious claims and then play the victim when you call them on it.
Hello ladies and gentlemen. I'm here today to announce that I will once again be doing a fan made, 100% digital Rifter called Rifter 0.1. I wasn't sure if I was going to do it, but Adam Kass, the guy who supplied 90% of the art emailed me today saying he was on board again, so let's do this thing.

Here are the rules:
-No Robotech. I know, I know, people want it but licensing doesn't work, especially for something like this.
-Try and spread it out in the topics. We had a pretty good mix with the first one and I want to keep that kind of thing going too.
-Multi-game submissions will get special attention but it won't be a guaranteed entry.
-Don't offer to do something if you're not going to do it! I know some of you want to offer, and either forget or something else comes up. That's understandable, but I ended up waiting 2 months last time for 4 artist who offered but never delivered, and I won't do that again.
- For those of you sending multiple things, PLEASE!!!! send them all as separate files. You can send them all in as one email, but I really don't want to go fishing through a huge doc file looking for where one submission ends and the other begins.
-Unless it's something innovative, try and have the submission be an actual article. The skill list and 'phone book' were cool, but I don't want to have too many more of them.
-Treat this as your bible for submitting. Specifically the technical and tips.
-This is volunteer only. Don't go into this expecting money, you're in the wrong place for that.

Here's the submission process:
1. Email me your submission or submission. Include with it a summary of it that I can read before I get your contract so I can get Adam working on models likely used for the art. When I get your submission, I'll email you my mailing address so you can send the form. I won't read your submission until I get that form. Also include you real name, age and full mailing address. Please keep me up to date if this changes before step 5 or it'll cause a fair amount of chaos.

2. Once I get your form, I'll read it over and decide if it works for the edition. I'll then send you an email telling you if it does or not. If it doesn't, I'll try to explain why if I have the time. If it does but needs some changes, I'll also let you know so you can work on making the changes.

3. Once I get everything I expect to get, I'll be sending the files and contracts off to Kevin and Wayne for them to check and give their seal of approval. Just because it's volunteer doesn't mean they don't want it to be quality.

4. Once I get the thumbs up on what I can use, I'll call for artists. Email me if you have a genuine interest and I'll send you a list of things you can work on to match the articles I have. If you can't do any of it, please let me know. If you can then please, keep me up to date on how it's coming and when I could expect to see it. Yes, you need to send a form as well, I suggest sending it to me when you first decide to do it, not when you finish. If I get the form then I can do stuff with your art as soon as you send it. I'm only looking for scanned in art btw. I don't have the capacity to work with real art. This means digital is also a good idea if you're good at it.

5. Once I get a basic set up going, with the art submissions and articles, I'll send it all back to Palladium so they can send out the contracts. Luckily, since we've been through this already, they should be able to use the same contracts so this step won't take so long. I'll also be sending out a round of emails, letting folks know to expect the contracts.

6. Once the contracts are done, and sent back to Palladium, I'll do my final edit on the book and send it to them. Once they get a read over it and make sure everything looks good, then it'll end up on the net.

As you can see, it's a fairly long process. We likely won't see 0.1 till the fall at the very least. The first Rifter 0 took a full year, but now that we know the process we might be able to cut that time down significantly.

Submissions should be sent to rifter0@gmail.com with '0.1 Submission' as your subject. I will not be setting a submission dead line this time, however when I get what I think is enough, I'll be shutting down submissions, so sooner is MUCH better than later.

All around good guy.
Prince Aremis, do you have a theme for 0.1? Something we can refer to for a "flavor" to our submissions? I have a few ideas of things to send, but don't want to send them for no reason. I sent a submission to you last time but didn't get my legal form to you in time, so this time I'll remedy that. But is there anything in particular you'd want for this?

If this question has been asked and answered, I apologize, but here we go: If I submitted something to the official Rifter which was rejected (or, at least, I never heard back), can I still submit it for the Rifter 0 series? I understand that it might be rejected again (ouch!), but is there any other reason it's not allowed?

Thanks!

It's my understanding that, unless you get an official rejection, you can not resubmit it.

Yeah, I'm leaning that way, too, Mr Mom. I'm okay with rejection, but after a year or so without any word at all, I'm assuming Wayne is not interested.

Still, I appreciate your answer, Big Red, and I would like to get an official statement on this from somebody, whether its Wayne, Prince Artemis, NMI or whoever.

Okay, since three people made this same mistake, I'll post this here in it's own post since it wasn't clear in the original post:

Submissions MUST be in MS word format, don't just copy and past it into the email itself, it's useless to me. No offense, just making it clear what and why.

how about Rich text format for those not using a microsoft based program? .rtf is compatable with just about every word processor, and it preserves formatting...


a helpful tip for any document file though. when e-mailing, put th file(s) in a zip folder, and attach the zip to the email. prevents the email provider from scrambling the document, which can happen if you just attach directly.

Santa Claus was originally submitted to the print Rifter before I became a Freelancer and was never printed. So I submitted to the Rifter 0.

Working on something for Rifter 0.1 as we speak.

Already made two submissions and the legal mumbo jumbo is in the mail! Looking forward to this. Hopefully I make it.

what about those of us who do not have MS word? All my stuff tends to be in notepad.
Also are there any other format guidelines we should follow?

NMI and Josh,

Thanks for the responses! Now I just have to decide if I want to submit again.

As long as it is a doc file I should be able to open it that's good. My point was that you do NOT send the submission as the body of your email.

Okay folks, I have gotten 4-6 letters from people with their forms. I'll be emailing the people I got them from soon. Sorry about that, I've been busy so I completely forgot to mention this.

Just a reiteration. The forms must be mailed in physical form. NO scans, NO pdfs, NO virtual signatures. Paper and ink (or pencil if you have to).

Just wondering: it has been so long, has this project been shelved? If so, should I resubmit my files to the regular Rifter? Can I even do that after submitting to Rifter #0.1?

In case you forget, I submitted stuff for Ecowizards and a new HU class.

It's not shelved, I'm just waiting for more stuff to come in so I'll have a full book. I currently have enough for half. I keep mentioning it on my show but I guess I should be saying that here. I was talking to some people here that are thinking on submitting stuff.

Remind me to get my butt back in gear. I'm only taking one class over the summer and moving to Maryland.

Thank you for the update, Prince A-Bomb. I was prepping the After Midnight update for the Rifter #0.2 (if there will be such a creature). Should I push this project to the proverbial front burner to provide more filler material?

Hi guys,

I offered to take over the Project if Matthew didn't want it anymore. Matthew offered to talk with Kevin about it. Well, it's been two or three weeks since the Open House, and I don't know where we stand. It's been probably a couple of months since I heard from Matthew. It's been since December that the Rifter Zero forum was last updated, and that was by me.

I am making this post to ask for opinions. Here's the question -- should I call Wayne and ask him?

I would think that a good phone conversation with Wayne would be beneficial.

Okay, I will give it a shot. I am not expecting a response. Matthew has stated on his own show that he doesn't respond to private messages. He recommends reaching him through the Rifter Zero gmail account. I've changed my schedule around so that I can attend the Gateway show tonight (if there will be one). That might be the only way to the guy.

It has a good amount of support. Once I hear from Kevin, Mathew has agreed to pitch in a bit to expanding this product line and help keep things consistent too.

This is the basic plan.

The Rifter # 0.1
Theme NPC. Every thing from a henchmen to side kick.
The friendly hero or villain, a Cyber doc to the drug dealer on the corner who gives you info. Bar tender to the presidents personal maid.
We're looking at having a collected book of NPC's collected in a catalogue. A one stop spot for a quick reference to fill the gap in every day gaming that is fleshed out to meet our needs in a pinch and may later become a leading character or a well structured support character. Please include photos/illustrations if you have them.

More information can be found on the thread as it is explored further.

Dude, Matthew has at LEAST two hundred pages of material for 0.1 which do not fit this theme. Let the guy get 0.1 out first. Your concept would make a great 0.2.

Thanks!
I replied to your PM.
Since there has been little activity on this topic I decided to post something. In the event that my offer is not considered it will continue as fan project. I've left things up to palladium for the time being. When
August 1, 2010 passes I'll move forward with it as a fan project as a pseudo fan Rifter type of thing. Unofficial of course.

As a volunteer I'm not looking to make $$$ from this. I just want to fill a need for gamers, for free.

Today is the last day to taking unexpected contributions! They are pouring in, also.

Don't forget that signed UMF! Today is the deadline for those as well.

My computer and OpenOffice felt today was a good day to crash. I only lost a few sentences but will be tomorrow night when I send you the file.

Thanks for the update, Big S.

I think I have a gremlin character who is smoking a victory cigar right now.

Greetings and Salutations. Hmm ... looking at it we have 9 game lines covered, plus a few megaversal articles. If we had articles for Recon, System Failure, and Heroes Unlimited we would actually have articles for EVERY Palladium game line (not counting lisenced lines which we can't include).

Then we have two short stories (and one's a freaking novella!).

Hmm ... well, if we include pictures, we can say we cover Heroes Unlimited (it has 4 pictures, but no article). Actually, looking at it, we have art for 9 game lines (plus 4 not yet assigned). Out of the 9 articles only Splicers doesn't have any artwork yet.

Having seen some of the material (and written others), I'm very anxious to see this product finished. This thing should end up being HUGE! Not to mention interesting. *Bounces up and down like an excited little kid.* A long time in the making, but I think should be well worth the wait once this is published (in PDF format).

Anyways, just me looking on with wide eyed optimism. Thank you for your time and patience, please have a nice day. Farewell and safe journeys for now.

I'm working on a Systems Failure article, but alas, it will not be done by the end of March. Or April. Or most likely May. Maybe not even by the end of June... :lol:

Well, I hope the novella lives up to people's desires and expectations.

Personally I'm looking forward to seeing the art as much as the articles. We've got some amazing amateur and semi-professional artists in our ranks, and I can't wait to see what everyone is turning in.

Greetings and Salutations. Well, no offense, but I'm hoping people like the short story better than the novella. Though I could be biased. :lol: But seriously, I'm sure it'll do great. I'm interested in checking it out (and I'm not a Rifts player). Should be lots of fun.

As for the art, agreed. Whenever I had my work printed in a Rifter I always got more excited about the art than seeing my work. The first thing I'd do when I got it in the mail is open up the Rifter to my article and then flip through so I could see the art.

There's so many fun things to look forward to with this project. Variety of articles, stories, great art, helping Alex, and just in general seeing all the fans come together to make this a reality. Thank you for your time and patience, please have a nice day. Farewell and safe journeys for now.
