Rifts® Lazlo Raw Preview – Collectors Edition

Rifts® Lazlo is a wonder and something of an idealistic utopia. A noble experiment and place of learning and education, peace and tolerance, where all manner of people are accepted. A place where its people that strive to be better, braver, bolder, and kinder. An oasis of calm and goodness in a world that is still climbing out of the smoldering ruins and chaos of the Great Cataclysm and the Coming of the Rifts.

Lazlo attracts mages and creatures of magic and dimensional travelers from across the infinite Megaverse. Here visitors can safely rub shoulders with adventures, mages, mercs, and D-Bees, dragons and sphinx, mages and soldiers of all sorts. They come from the Federation of Magic, Tolkeen, the Vampire Kingdoms, South America, Atlantis, and anywhere on Rifts Earth and beyond. This makes Lazlo a place of opportunity for those bold enough to accept the challenge.

Many of these visiting outsiders come to Lazlo bristling with rumors and tales of adventure. They speak of their exploits, treasures to be won, monsters and villains to be slain or opposed, towns and people to be liberated, places to explore (on and off world), and other opportunities for the bold. Many are looking to hire or partner with like-minded visiting adventurers (e.g. the player characters), or to finance a group to go on missions and treasure hunts or are paid well to do a service no questions asked.

  • What is a Raw Preview Edition? It is the unfinished, unedited, advance manuscript subject to rewrites and expansion. It gets a limited print run of around 200-300 copies and is fun for collectors to have something rare and unique, and is especially handy for writers and game designers (and curious gamers) because they get a glimpse into the development process at Palladium when they compare what is in the Raw Preview and what sees print in the final book, what gets expanded, dropped out, etc. In this case, writer Mark Oberle has been building Lazlo from material written by Matthew Clements and notes from me, Kevin Siembieda. It should be pretty darn good. And remember, Rifts® Lazlo is likely to be 2-4 books. That is how comprehensive we want to make Lazlo. Heck, fans have waited 30 years, we do not want to disappoint. The Raw Preview is 160 pages all by itself.
