I just thought I'd post an update to this thread on the status of the game. So far I have found three players. Characters in the group so far are a Mind Melter, possibly a Ley Line Walker, and one undecided. I am thinking about starting out the game in Phase World but having characters native to Rifts Earth. They will witness the Dimensional Outbreak begin in the Three Galaxies and bring some of the knowledge gained there back to Rifts Earth hoping to save their own world from the ravages of the Minion War.
I am planning to start this game sometime in December or January so get in touch with me if you are interested.
