Violence and the Supernatural
The fictional world of Rifts® is violent, deadly and filled with supernatural monsters. Other-dimen
sional beings, often referred to as "demons," torment, stalk and prey on humans. Other alien life forms,
monsters, gods and demigods, as well as magic, insanity, and war are all elements in this book.
Some parents may find the violence, magic and supernatural elements of the game inappropriate for
young readers/players. We suggest parental discretion.
Please note that none of us at Palladium Books® condone or encourage the occult, the practice of
magic, the use of drugs, or violence.
An epic world book for the Rifts® series.
Compatible with the entire Palladium Books® Megaverse®!
" What is heaven? " demanded the barbarian conqueror ofthe Taoist Sage.
The Taoist Sage took up a pen and wrotefour characters;
'Father Dies, Son Dies. '
" What? You wrote the characterfor death twice. That can 't be heaven! "
"Shall I tell you the nature ofhell, so that you will understand heaven? "
Sullenly, the barbarian nodded, and the Taoist Sage wrote anotherfour characters;
'Son Dies, Father Dies. '
...and so, sadly, I dedicate this book to my friend, who died before his time, to Dr.Kenny Cheung.

Thanks to My Sweet Kate, for putting up with more than usual this time, to my Dragonwright Group (Todd, Don, Chuck, Alan,
Jim, Paul, Kevin, Tony, Michele and Phil) for putting up with way more than usual, what with me skiving off to Hong Kong and such,
and to Kevin Siembieda for putting up with more than a publisher should have to bear.
