Official Palladium Sites

Palladium Books: This is the Official Site and home page to Palladium Books. Here you can view their Weekly Updates, learn more about the Palladium Staff, find retailers, and more.

Palladium Store: Need a book? The Palladium Store can help fill all your gaming needs and has a majority of its current in print merchandise in stock.

Forums of the Megaverse: The Official message board of the Megaverse and Palladium Books. You can find myself, as well as many of the Palladium Freelancers (both artists and writers) on these forums.

Palladium Chat: The Official chat room hosted by Palladium Books. There are usually chat games run here nightly (many of them closed), as well as sometimes people just hanging out for fun and looking for a good chat. It has a built-in Dice Roller as well as the ability to post online pictures directly into the chat (but please don't abuse this feature or it could be taken away).

DriveThruRPG: Want a PDF? DriveThruRPG has a large collection of Rifters, out of print books, and even a few products still in print such as After the Bomb and Splicers. There's also some PDF only products such as free previews of various books, and Game Master Kits for both Rifts and Palladium Fantasy. And let's not forget the Official Palladium Paper Miniatures that have a few optional rules thrown in!

Palladium Maps (Unofficial)

Palladium World Map 1: By arsheesh. This was a private commission done for a fan of the Palladium RPG, zyanitevp (on the Forums of the Megaverse) who also runs A God ... Rebuilt campaign on Obsidian Portal. A version of this map has since seen print on the back cover of the recent Palladium Fantasy release: Bizantium and the Northern Islands.

Palladium World Map 2: By ???. I believe this was done by a fan and then given to Kevin Siembiedia as a gift.

Palladium World Map 3: By Dawn2069MS. There are some adjustments to the map to fit the creator's campaign (years long), but I still find it impressive.

Palladium World Map 4: By Xynar (on the Forums of the Megaverse). This one is designed to show the various land holdings of the Palladium Worldd nations.

 

Artists

MadManMike: A Palladium freelance artist who takes commissions, and also responsible for the Character Sheets in the back of Palladium Fantasy Book 3: Adventures on the High Seas as well as the Paper Miniatures on DriveThruRPG. He also has some online Character Sheets.

Mumah: Mike Mumah is a Palladium freelance artist many fans love and he's known to take commission pieces as well.

ChuckWalton: Another of the Palladium freelance artists and a favorite among many. I don't think he takes commissions (or not many if he does), but that shouldn't stop you from heading on over and checking out some of those magnificent pieces of work.

 

Palladium Fantasy Fan Sites

Kimberly Chapman's Equipment List: This is a list of equipment other than armour and weapons. Although some items here could be used in those contexts, that would not be their primary function. Useful for expanding equipment lists.

Kitsune's Palladium Web Page: This includes an adventure, new races, optional rules, and more for the Palladium Fantasy setting.

The Alchemy of Practical Magic: A useful site for magical additions, but be warned of ads and potential pop-ups along the journey.

 

Other Palladium Fan Sites

The Black Vault: A wiki run by NMI, the head moderator over at the Forums of the Megaverse. His name may strike discord with some, but that doesn't change that he's a fan and has some useful information on the site.

House of BTS Front Desk: A fan site for Beyond the Supernatural hosted by Steven Dawes. If you're a fan of Beyond the Supernatural, you may recognize the name from his work in the Rifters or his work on the Forums of the Megaverse.

Kitsune's Palladium Web Page: In addition to the Palladium Fantasy material, Kitsune also hosts a wide variety of material for Beyond the Supernatural, Heroes Unlimited, Rifts, and others.

N&S GMs Netbook: An archive of the Kuseru Satsujin site with a plethora of martial arts and other information. Warning: Sometimes when I click the link I get hi-jacked to another page (I think this is because it's just an archive), but usually if you try it a couple of times (or hit the Back button) you can get the page.

Palladium Books Collector Checklist: Are you a collector? Do you want to know what books and products are out there and you might be missing? This handy checklist could be just the thing for you. Last time I checked, it was still up to date.

 

Rules Compilations

Compiled Saving Throws: A complete list of saving throws in the Megaverse and their target number. The list was up to date as of Rifts Ultimate Edition (maybe a little after). Warning: Sometimes when I click the link I get hi-jacked to another page (I think this is because it's just an archive), but usually if you try it a couple of times (or hit the Back button) you can get the page.

Master Skills List: A complete list of skills in the Megaverse and a key to which books they can be found in. Also included are some class specific skills. The list was up to date as of Rifts Ultimate Edition (maybe a little after). Warning: Sometimes when I click the link I get hi-jacked to another page (I think this is because it's just an archive), but usually if you try it a couple of times (or hit the Back button) you can get the page.

Rifts Master O.C.C., P.C.C., R.C.C., & Race List: Just as the name suggests, this is compiles the information and makes it easy to find. While not complete, a useful asset. The site mentions which books it covers.

Environmental Dangers #1: A list of possible environmental dangers (listing book and page) found in various Palladium settings. This will involve wading through the topic to find various results, but might still be faster than searching every book.

Environmental Dangers #2: A second thread, with a few different finds, on the same subject as above.

Rifts Rules Compendium: A collection of rules found in the Rifts setting gathered in one place. This only mentions book and page number (the actual rule is not written out) and can be a useful resource.

 

Online Games

A God ... Rebuilt: Winner of the April 2012 Campaign of the Month on Obsidian Portal.

Regnum, Paradise Lost: Winner of Campaign of the Year 2014 on Obsidian Portal.

Explorer's Unlimited: A Play by Post site. While not my preferred gaming style, feel free to check it out. Just make sure you're aware of the rules and make sure they're right for you. Some people love them, some people hate them.

 

Dice Rollers

Online Die Roller: Another decent online dice roller. I use it sometimes when Invisible Castle goes down. It also has some customized die options, as well as allowing you to roll more than once with a single click, useful when you want to make a lot of the same rolls in a short time (such as character generation or a Play by Post combat).

Dungeons & Dragons Dice Roller: Another die roller. At this point much of your choices will be similar, but different looks and presentation.

Steve Jackson Games Dice Roller: Another die roller. At this point much of your choices will be similar, but different looks and presentation.

Basic Java Dice Roller: Another die roller. At this point much of your choices will be similar, but different looks and presentation. This one is pretty basic (as the name suggests).

 

Generators

Random Generators

Seventh Sanctum: Multiple different types of generators all in one place. Find the one that works best for you.

Serendipity: More random generators to aid in names or general descriptions.

Chaotic Shiny: Another slew of random generators.

Map Generators

donjon: Dungeon Generator.

Grozzy's: Several map generators (including dungeons, caves, and wilderness) as well as some pre-generated maps.

Dungeons Unlimited: A wide variety of pre-generated maps sorted out to easily sort when you're in a hurry and need a map fast!

Inkwell Ideas; Random Inn Generator: A tool for quickly mapping out an inn. If you need additional help fleshing out that inn (not a map) feel free to use this site.

Name Generators

Behind the Name Random Name Generator: Need helping figuring out a name for your character or that new NPC? This site can help you pick one out.

Name Generators: A name generator with a wide selection of categories to choose from.

By Any Other Name: Another name generator with more options.

 

Adding Medieval Flavor

Genealogy; Early Occupations: This list describes various old occupations of which many are archaic. These are useful since surnames usually originated from someone's occupation. While this list gives more modern interpretations of those terms, it is by no means complete.

Kingdom Populator: Based on Medieval Demographics Made Easy, this provides an easy way to help design a kingdom by simply changing the fields (such as size, terrain, years building, type of law enforcement, etc.) to what you need.

 

Other Useful Sites

Online Conversion - Length: A useful site when you want to quickly convert feet to meters (or converting any other measurement to/from metric). Though length is probably one of the most used aspects, the site also has a variety of other conversions (including Weight) which can be found here.

House Plans: This site has a variety of house plans, which can be useful for figuring out the layout in a game. With so many options, Game Masters can keep each house your players encounter new and unique. Players can use this for designing a house for their characters (if that interests them, and I know a few that it does).

Gaming the Horse: For those who really want to add that extra detail and accuracy to horses in the game.

Hirst Arts Fantasy Architecture Inc.: For models and miniatures.

Paper Miniatures: If you don't want to go full models, feel free to check out the Official Paper Miniatures by MadManMike. They're an easy and convenient alternative (hosted by DriveThruRPG).

Radio Rivendell: A radio station playing fantasy music 24-7. They like to promote young and unknown artists and bands. If you don't own any fantasy music, consider playing this in the background of your games for ambiance.
