Not a regular poster here in Dice and Men, but I have a question, and I'm hoping someone can help me out.
My buddies and I, back in the day when we were young, impressionable, and generally ignorant of quality gaming, played Rifts. A lot. But as we grew, and realized how horrible the system was, and what other games were out there to indulge in, we left Rifts behind and never looked back.
But now, my group is getting the hankering again. I have to agree with them, I dig the setting and overall feel of the Rifts universe. The problem is that the system is wholly unplayable, and I'm looking for help in solving that. I know there have to be some conversion rules floating around out there somewhere in the ether, either to bring Rifts-specific characters and elements into, say, GURPS or a newfangled d20 system... Anyone know where I could find something like that? I imagine there are many people like me, who like the setting but not the rules, and actually DID something about it.
