Rifts: World Book 25: China Two
Heroes of the Celestial Court™
Palladium Books is known for being the House of Ideas, but every now and then we release a book that just sings. A book that is filled with one cool idea, character, gizmo and wow after another. Rifts® China 2 is such a book. To say that Wujcik, Siembieda and all the contributors, from writers to artists, were "inspired" is an understatement.
Rifts® China 2 combines Oriental myth and mysticism, martial arts, Hong Kong Movie action, unique and powerful characters, magic, demons and science fiction as only Palladium Books can. And for you high-tech junkies, there are the warriors and wonders of Geofront with things like Demon Skin body armor, the Gun Dragon, Black Tiger power armor, Chi Demon Weapons, the Gun Master O.C.C. and more.
