Heys guys and gals. I'm a new Dm to RIFTS, but it was my starting ttrpg game. So I just have to ask. What is the order of the books? I just acquired the RIFTS Ultimate Edition and want a grasp of the order to start collecting after that. Thank you for your suggestions.

I voted Game Pace, which is in part the GM and in part the players.

I play online and sort of dislike five minutes (or five plus) between posts.

I say what the classes ARE even if the books mislabel them, so get over it.

Mostly I write out exactly what I mean, then sometimes get even more finicky.

The communal nature of the game. It is more fun when done with other people.

Soon my army oc clones and winged-monkies will rule the world but first, must .......

I may debate canon and RAW, but the games I run are highly house ruled. So I am not debating for how I play but about how the system works as written.

You may want to think about getting the GM Guide, Book of Magic, Conversion Book One, and Bionics Sourcebook because they consolidate all similar information from various books that Palladium put out.

There are many World and Dimension books so you need to decide what location you will be adventuring in and get the books pertaining to that region.

I agree with Oni No Won.

However, you don't really need anything except R:UE to start playing. Conversion or other monster book is good, and everyone has their favorite World book. It mostly depends where on/off Earth you want to put your Rifts campaign.

In your list, you forgot "Fun Players", if you don't have them, everything falls apart.

Don't forget to post in the GM's Forum. We've got a good crew of posters who will be happy to answer questions.

As a long time Palladium GM, my #1 suggestion is to tailor the game to how you like to run things and forget about worrying about the RAW. Keep what you like, bend the rest to your will.

Comment: "So gentlemen, are you prepared to open your minds and travel to worlds hitherto undreamed of?"
I didnt answer cos the choice is dependant on the game and the players. what I would say is that a good GM doesnt have to be all knowledgeable but a goo GM AND good players can have a good game without needing music or scenery etc.
