Rifts is a multi-genre role-playing game created by Kevin Siembieda in 1990 and published continuously by Palladium Books since then. Rifts takes place in a post-apocalyptic future, deriving elements from science fiction, fantasy, horror, western, and many other genres. Since its creation, over 250,000 copies of the original Rifts rule book have been sold and over 60 books have been created.

Rifts serves as a cross-over environment for a variety of other Palladium games with different universes connected through "rifts" in space, time, and reality. Through Palladium's universal combat and conversion system, characters and elements from different games can interact and combine in new ways, resulting in a completely unique role-playing setting that Palladium calls the "Rifts Megaverse".

The Rifts game contains subject matter which some readers find objectionable including descriptions of violence, magic, drugs, insanity and evil. Each Rifts volume contains a disclaimer and warning about being inappropriate for young readers. Rifts also describes itself as an "advanced" role-playing game and not an introduction for those new to the concept. Palladium estimates that "1.5+ million gamers have played Rifts and many times that number have heard of it." Quoted from Wikipedia

Member John Mongar will be running Rifts on a regular basis for CARP
