Ok, instead of focusing on the protaganist (the heroes, supposedly), let's focus on the antagonist (you know, the bad guys). Who would you like to see as the bad guy of the movie?

My vote would have to go to A.R.C.H.I.E. 3OZ.

Dunscon makes a good one, as do the Splugorth, and the Coalition.

We will need a villian that the "Players" will see form time to time. Someone like that, which would mean you would have to roll up a whole new villian or take an "NPC" from the books who isn't too high up on the ladder.

For the CS, some kind of Squad leader. For the Splugorth a Slaver would be great. For Archie, one of his Rare "children" AI, and the list can go on.

Make the huge boss guy someone main antagonist reports too ( IE Vader to the Emporer,) Especially if you want to plan a sequal.

So you have Dunscon being a main antagonist, but his leutenant is the person the group sees on a regular basis. Later on if ther eis a sequal you mix it up and make the story bigger then what it was.


Here is a good one. Have the group Confuse Archie as the major villian, while all this time the things Archie has been doing are set in motion not to dominate the locals, but raid the sploogs instead.

Completely agree with you Chronicle!

Somone à la Suka San from the Rifts novels would be ideal.

Don't you think the villain should be something/one more recognizable to people not as used to the Rifts universe? A group like the Coalition would be good, easy for folks to relate to. Or the iconic Splugorth or an evil Dragon or something. I don't know...I love Rifts, been playing for yeeaars, but I've read none of the novels nor think I would recognize some of the random crazy NPC from one of the books. Doesn't mean I wouldn't LOVE a movie.

The characters in the Rifts Novels are really well done. I think you will recognize them pretty well.

Up to me to familiarize myself then with the novels. Are they really worth getting into? I'm asking genuinly. Which are better then others? I should find the thread on novels...

A movie of this caliber .. would need a HUGE .. twist like that .

But according to canon .. Archie is a bad guy an this situation has him looking like humanities Knight in shining armor .. haha

The Cannon paints archie in a grey area, He wants to protect humanity just not interact with him, he is a parnoid Wild card in any game reguarding the Spluggorth. Hates the with a passion.
