A Rifty Campaign of Extraordinary Magnitude
Starting The Campaign
The campaign stats in a city called MercTown, near what is present day Paducah, Kentucky.
In short, MercTown is run by mercenaries, for mercenaries. It is neutral territory where everyone is welcome. The local government does not take political sides.
It has a relatively comfortable standard of living, high tech, state-of-the-art medicine, and all of the other luxuries of modern civilization. On the hand, it has a very “racially mixed” population of humans, D-Bees, etc.. which causes its own problems. On top of that, it is only 30 miles from the CS border.
Due to its somewhat central location and neutral nature, I figured MercTown would be a good place to start the campaign. This way players can pick characters of pretty much any reasonable background. Somehow your character found his/her way to MercTown, and from there we will begin.
Since most of you are unfamiliar with the world of Rifts, I can work with you to create a suitable background for your character. It might be best to pick a class you like and work backwards. In some ways, the class you pick might determine where you are from, or at least what type of background you have.
