So, here’s the deal. There are plenty of discussions over the relative power levels of this Rifts book or that. For a long time, I’ve wanted to see which books really are the most popular, where the perceived “power curve” starts, ebbs, or ends, and just what Palladium gamers really think are the most quality Rifts books out there.
If you’re a Rifts Game Master or player, please take 10-15 minutes to fill out the form below. I’d really like to garner over 100 responses, and chart just where a survey of fans places each Rifts World Book in terms of quality and power level. I want to see what patterns we might discern, and if there’s any sort of consensus on which books truly are of the best quality or highest power level.
This is not a debate (though it likely might lead to a few); it is simply your opinion. You are simply considering each book as it compares to the line as a whole. In other words, you don’t need to show your math; just rate each with your impression. If you have no experience with a particular listed book or books, skip them and move on.
The link to the quiz is here. Please share with other Rifts fans—the more quality responses I can obtain the better. No, I’m not a professional pollster (obviously), but I am curious to see what the results are! Here is the link to the form:
I will keep the survey live for two weeks, after which time I will share the data here with what we find out. Thanks very much for your participation. I know this isn’t 100% (or even 60%) scientific, but hopefully we get some good participation. I’m hoping we get some good data we can cover and dissect on a future episode.
(Please note I did not include Dimension Books and Conversion Books in this survey—one, because I needed to make it manageable, and two, I wanted to compare how different parts of Rifts Earth themselves were covered, so I’m sticking with World Books for this study).
Thanks for your help!
