 Would anyone be interested in either the Tolkeen Campaign (Basically the Coalition War Series) or an Atlantean centric campaign? The Atlantean centric one would deal with the Sunaj, either taking back Atlantis or not, possibly some other Atlantean secrets.

Both have good potential, do you expect to use the old Palladium system, or the new Savage Worlds Adventures one?

I didnt even know you could play Rifts with another system XD. My grey hairs are showing ;). But the Tolkein Wars sounds fun.

Yeah a few of the non-D&D systems have conversions available for Pinnacle's Savage Worlds. I am completely unfamiliar with that rules set so that's why I wouldn't use it.

It is wildly different, and not in all ways better, but it also has some adjustments to the setting that Palladium books was part of making.  Not a big improvement for text games, both are a touch clunky but it takes a slightly different direction so knowing which one is going to be used matters.

 One of its main virtues is that all the splat stuff for it only runs to a half-dozen books and they all seem to have been written by people who actually read the other ones. Also, there aren't any 'Kevin Siembada Says' lectures in them.

 On the other hand, there are some very slightly janky results from how the system is put together (in Rifts? Surely not!) but a lot less than there used to be.

I'd be up for Rifts using the traditional Palladium system, but thats about it.

The newer system is obviously smaller, but that is also its main disadvantage, it doesn't have a lot of setting update outside the north east US area and while it has an extremely robust translation method you do have to translate much of the material from one to the other in order to enjoy the full depth of the setting.

 More to point I don't know the system. So Savage Worlds is a moot point. That being said even with the best conversion in the world that takes time. Far more time than I plan on devoting to that aspect of the game at this time. So if you want Savage Rifts this isn't the place to find it. I'm sorry if that comes across harsh but it is what it is. Moving on.

So what are you thinking?

Tolkeen or Atlantians?

It could go either way for me. That's why I asking what players would prefer. Me personally I like the plot line I'm building in my head for the Atlantis plot. But Tolkeen is less work. In addition to the like 12 known Clans I'm building at least three more.
