The Rifts? Story
The concept is simple and provocative . . .
Sometime in Earth's future, after a Golden Age of peace and technological advancement, the face of the planet is decimated by the return of magic and the Coming of the Rifts. Cities fall, civilization collapses, billions of people perish, and portals to a thousand alien worlds open across the face of the planet.
The story of Rifts? picks up 300 years later. Humankind has, at last, crawled out of a 200 year long Dark Age to reassert itself in the world. Only this world ? Rifts Earth ? is as strange as any alien planet. Reshaped by dimensional energies, inhabited by alien beings and changed by magic from the Rifts, humankind must learn to adapt to this strange new world.
The Rifts are tears in the fabric of space and time. They are found along ley lines ? natural lines of mystic energy. Where two or more ley lines intersect, a Rift may form (or be opened) to create a dimensional portal to virtually anywhere and anywhen. Opening a Rift enables characters to travel from one end of the planet to the other in a heartbeat, and beyond, to an infinite number of alien worlds and dimensions.
The problem is hundreds, perhaps thousands, of alien, demonic, magical and superhuman beings have used the Rifts to cross into Earth. Wondrous and monstrous creatures reside alongside humans and often compete for dominance over the land and its people.
The Earth has become a place of contradiction and infinite possibilities. Alien and supernatural beings roam the planet. Ancient gods, vampires, faeries, dragons, and alien monstrosities co-exist with human cyborgs, androids, giant robots, high-tech mercenaries and dimensional raiders. Creatures of myth and legend, demons and aliens visit regularly. Some use magic to bolster their already formidable powers, while humans augment themselves with nano-implants, bionics, power armor, chemical enhancement, magic and alien technologies in an ongoing battle of survival.
