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?


Standard pricing.

if its a "dead" book, shouldnt it be discounted?

Just sayin, why pay that much for a book that the publisher and author both called "crap" (they may have politely called it crap, but thats the designation none the less)

Because palladium dosn't actually understand the online PDF business.

I take that back. What they were not is using it to the best extent possible.

They're still very much a print-minded publisher. That's why no new titles are avaible on PDF.

basically, people have been telling them for years "PDF's are great, you should use them", but they're worried about piracy and perfer books.

So basically what it is, is they're taking books they never had intention of publishing again, and putting it on there because it dosn't cost them anything to do it.

They are not marketing it, persay, so much as making it avaible because people told them they should.

Comment: "Lightening never strikes the sameplace twice... the same person, however, is another story."
I live in Japan so I can't just stroll to my local gaming store and find Palladium Books and I move every few years so packing and unpacking books is a pain in the butt. One day I was chatting with my buddy and he mentioned the old days of playing Rifts together so I got nostalgic and jumped on PalladiumBooks.com and saw a link for PDF books. I felt like I hit the jackpot. I could buy books online without having to worry about getting lost in the mail while shipping over seas or packing more books the next time I move.

I was aware of Palladium Fantasy but I only played Rifts with my buddies but while I was exploring Palladium Books PDF files I found After the Bomb Book 1 for $5 so I figured I'd take a chance on it. It was really cool but I didn't realize that it wasn't a core book so then I had to pick up the After the Bomb core book which I really enjoyed. So I started purchasing Rifters PDF, anything that had to do with After the Bomb that was available. After I read through all that material I noticed a Nightbane article and I was sold on it but the only book available in PDF was Shadows and Light that you were discussing. I ended up buying the Nightbane book and it took almost 3 months to arrive (I blame the post office and the fact that it was coming overseas, I don't blame Palladium Books).

After all that, I wish I was able to purchase more in digital format. Hell, I actually wish I could buy both at once. The hardcopy I could store at a friends house in the States and I can have the PDF instantly. That way when I do come home I have the hardcopy to actually play with my friends.

Ok... that went way off topic. I would like to see more PDF's too.

well when my gm wanted to make his roll table he had me scan all the table from my books (as i have almost all the rifters and all of the NB books) and I have a good 100 table in jpg files. I think they need to make a book with all of the morphus tables and the talents cus its way to much work to just look though all the books.

I don't know if this helps anyone but it seems to be a rather complete chart I found. It's a little aqward to roll on with conventional dice but the link below the list seems to fit the bill for rolls.

Has anyone created an updated Appearance Chart?

I know some of the morphus tables aren't even in the NBSG. Like Food, Aura, Fan-Boy, Porcine, Blood, etc.

Is there anyone who has made an appearance chart that includes these?

I'm pretty sure you come construct a Kaiju morphus by using the current tables and writing out the char morphus description to make it look like the kaiju of you want.

To make a 'Zilla' morphus: t-rex body and stegasorus plates from the dino tables and breath weapon from the dragon table (all R20).
And just write up the descriptive text so he/she looks like a 'Zilla'.

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.
Except I had a GM that tried to do so by saying demons could do it. It made me shy away from Nightbane for a long time.
