RIFTS DIMENSION BOOK:
DEMON HEART FALI,ING
By Mike Fer .... ruson
NOTES FROM THE TIME MACHINE
I wrote "Demon Bean Falling" in Ihe winter of 1994/1995, when I was a senior at the University of Notre Dame.
I'd been running a regular RJFTS campaign for my friends since 1990, and had become obsessed with two things:
becoming a writer, and working for Palladium Books. The material in Ihis book (along with the material in its
companion, "The Banwok Hunters") reflect a 101 of the original material I wrote and used in my ongoing RIFTS
campaign during that time.
I submitted both the manuscript for this book and "The Banwok Hunters" to Palladium Books in the spring of
1995. For a while, illooked like Palladium migh1 publish them. Ultimately, they didn't. I learned a lot from that
experience, though, and ultimately it helped me to get published, and to become a better writer.
Both "Demon Heart Falling" and "The Banwok Hunters" were put in storage, and were forgotten. I moved on to
other games, and other things.
Fast-forward just about fifteen years later, to the fall of2009.
While looking for some other old games in the attic, I found one of the original copies of "Demon Hearl Falling"
- probably the only copy still in existence. I'd printed some copies of it for my friends way back in the day,
complete with a cover and comb binding. I'd assumed that all copies - including my own - were long-lost to the
ravages of time. Wrong. Here was the last copy, staring me in the face.
So I re-read it. And liked it.
It's not the greatest book in the world, ('II be honest. For that matter, it's probably not good. It's decent. It's an
excellent reflection oflhe author I was back then - raw, hungry, passionate, and practically exploding wilh ideas. It
lacks a lot of the polish and refinement needed from a more experienced writer, which could've made it into
something far better than what it was. But it's not terrible. It's just a glimpse at the author 1 was, and the author I
would become.
So [present it to you, for your enjoyment. If you can use any of this stuff in your own RIFTS game, awesome.
Let me know about it. Ifnot ... well, I hope you enjoy what you read, and it at least makes you smile.
Warts, naws and all, I'm proud of this one. It told me that I could be a writer.

CONDENSED EXCERPlrS FROM THE BOOK OF THE
SAME TI LE
CIRCA 106 P .A.
After battling the evil menace of the Banwok for SO long, it seems as though our eHorts
have paid off. Banwok attacks in the NorthAm region have tapered off drastically. and the
number of innocent humans being slaughtered by these sadistic creatures has also been greatly
reduced. Grendel, of course, says that our efforts have aU been for naught. He believes that the
Banwok are merely biding their time until they can assemble greater attack forces than before.
Damn dragon. You can always count on these overgrown rattlesnakes to rain on a parade.
Regardless of the 8anwok. my friends and I have found another menace threatening the
free people of NorthAm. It is only one person, but what a person! From what the compute:r
records of our base indicate. he alone makes the Banwok look like the buzzing of an annoying
fly. His name is Tristan Spyre. A mutant villain from the time before the Coming of the Rifts, he
represents things both wonderful and dangerous for the present. Always in the recorded
histories, Spyre sought nothing less than world domination and total control of all its inhabitants.
I doubt the leopard has changed its spots. It is unclear to us all how Spyre came to our time: the
dimension rift that brought the superheroes Wonder Guy and Feedback to our world was a freak
occurrence. a one-in-a-million occurrence. The how of the matter really is quite unimportant
now, though. What matters is sending him back to his own time ... or killing him. Much as I
abhor murder, it may be our only option.
Our group fought Spyre nearly a year ago, as we both sought to acquire the rune sword
Excalibur in Europe. At the time, we had assumed after our encounter with Spyre that the villain
was dead. I personally dumped over six rounds directly into his body using my Glitter Boy's
boom gun - I figured that was enough to kill any mortal. Apparently not Within the past several
weeks we have come across transmissions indicating that Spyre was alive and well. leading a
terrorist faction against the Coalition called the Church of the Wyrm. While I despise the
Coalition and everything they stand for. I know that a world led by Tristan Spyre would be a
thousand times more foul.
Our group. the Banwok Hunters. conferred on the matter of Spyre, and what we could do
about him. Satan (what an appropriate name for a liar! Damn dragon1 suggested complete
inaction on our part - by his logic. since Spyre has done nothing to us so far. The Apok Sylvain
has swom to slay Spyre and the evil he represents. The rest of us reluctantly came to what I
consider an acceptable compromise - find Spyre, and learn of his true plans. If they threaten the
people oi NorthAm, then we shall destroy his evil designs - and him as well, if necessary.
By tracking down the Church of the Wyrm. our trail led us to the Coalition State oi Lone
Star. It was then that we discovered that Spyre - and his new horde of followers - were not on
the Earth) They apparently had set up operations on a world called Jamaka. With the
Gateway's help, we were able to locale the rift to Jarnaka by the nation of Tolkeen. And so we
entered the strange new world of Jarnaka. .

Our "borrowed" Coalition APC hit a slight snag shonly after entering the rift - we
appeared in Jarnaka in an expanse of purplish mud. From what our instruments can tell, the
mud is slightly acidic. but not harmful. These fields of mud apparently take up much of the
planet's surface, and often stretch up to several hundred miles in diameter.

were also very tall . nearly eight feet in height - but barely weighed a hundred

twenty pounds. For their emaciated appearance. though. they proved to be very strong and
tough. perhaps indicating that they are supernatural in origin.
To be honest. when we first arrived In the Ulithlogg village I was extremely skeptical.
They seemed to be merely primitives, barely capable of counting to ten. To my surprise, I
learned that the language of the Ulithlogg was Dragonese
l
Even more surprising, when that
damned dragon Sal an asked the U.lithJogg to repair our armor, Ihey look us 10 a well-stocked
armory in the base oj one of the trees and were able to complete all repairs to our equipment in
just a lew days. Satan explained to me ' and to the rest of our group - that the Ulithlogg are a
race of idiot savants. capable of accomplishing astonishing feats without understanding what
they are doing. The Ulithlogg believe that they are the only "real" species of creatures in the
universe - everything else is just a hallucination. This makes their sense of morality and ethics
very bizarre. as they feel no moral obligations to illusions. Assisting or helping a non-Ulithlogg is
a whim, not a act of charity.
The lIlithlogg also apparently are well-known as assassins throughout many dimensions,
capable of phasing through solid mat1er in order to reach their prey. Satan also hinted at the faCt
that he has been here several times before, and that the Ulrthlogg were the ones responsible f0r
creating his mysterious Enforcer armor. I wonder. what other secrets has he held from us?
Atter a few weeks of recovery among the Lllithlogg, we noticed several Scimitar robots
on patrol around the perimeter of the foresl. The Hunters were now being hunted, it seemed. It
was time to move onward. Since outside this immense forest meant certain at1ack and possible
death. we elected to move deeper into the unknown regions of the forest. These were places
even the Ulithlogg did not know about. but we felt that our fortune lay with the unknown rather
than with Tristan Spyre.
STR
The sunlight slowly vanished as we headed into the center of the forest. Days passed as
we plodded onward, completely unsure of where we were and where we were going. Not a
creature did we see - the only sound that we could hear was the warm hum 01 our own
equipment and Ihe whispering breeze. We were a JiNle on edge. Even in my shadow, I could
swear that I could see crimson robols and the face of Tristan Spyre.
It is somewhat understandable, then. that we nearly killed the first creatures we met after
two weeks of isolation in these woodlands. Without warning, a small group of four ape-like
creatures came out in front of us. our sensors giving us no warning time at aiL Shots were nearly
fired. but cool thinking by Archimedes and his quickly barked orders kept guns from blazing
away. They looked like a pack of small blue gorillas, no more than four feet in height. and they
held bunches of flowers in their outstretched hands. Suddenly, they fell prostrate in front of
Grendel and Satan, mumbling some form 01 prayer in Dragonese! We were surprised, to say the
least. but decided that they were at least allies
The creatures led us back to their village, a tiny assemblage of thatched cot1ages
located at a nexus of lhree ley lines. No rifts were open that I could see. in talking with the
creatures. we learned that they were called the Kinsitata - Usmall wanderers" in the dragon
tongue. A very superstitious creature, they still seemed fairly smart and possessed much
magical ability. particularly in controlling the elements. Sylvain compared their abilities to those
of the druids of Camelot, which I found a fairly apt analogy.
Apparently, the Kinsitata first believed the dragons of our group to be something called
the Scarred Gods - deities whom they worship but apparently abandoned Jarnaka centuries ago.
Ignorant savages. Their respec1 and willingness to help us, though. was not diminished once
they learned of our real identities. They seem quite friendly, also I do not understand the
connection dragons possess with this world. Perhaps if I asked '. never mind.
After living with the creatures for a tew days, I finally asked the Kinsitata if they coulp
help us return to Eanh. To my continuing astonishment, they knew of Earth and a way to return!
After equipping us With some food, they took our group to one of the larger, hollow trees loca1ed
along one of the ley lines - the Korgata Trees. they call them. Once there, they told us just tb
step inside the tree and we would be back on Earth. I think thaI all of us were tempted to laugh
at them, but experience has taught us to expect the bizarre and the impossible by now. So, we
went along with il. When Archimedes happened to inquire where on Earth we would be. all the
Kinsitata could say was "among their brethren" With our other option being Spyre in a fight we

, Speed is now of the essence. Spyre has had a few weeks to advance even further in his
plans to take over Lone Star. If he ever gains control of a nation of NorthAm and the resources
there. who knows what could happen? While the memories of Jarnaka linger in my mind - the
place seems like a dream now. and I would love to explore it fully someday, that time must wart,

i The Kingdom of Chorrdalis is the only formalized country on Jarnaka, and is populated
entirely by the Chorrdali. The other creatures of Jarnaka - the Ulithlogg, the Aederond, and the
!<insitata - are all fairly socially primhive and live in small, simple villages. Like the Chondali,
these species of creatures keep mostly to themselves. Chorrdalis is localed in southern Jarnaka.
Chorrdalis is a fairly large nation, about the size of Atlantis. Its border is a nearly circular
mountain range, called the Mogotu Peaks. This makes Chondalis a difficult place to attack, al

I The new godlings, though, remained. and while they looked physically horrible. they
were exactly as smart and their souls were exactly as gentle as their creator had intended. Like
children left alone, they were unsure of who they were and what they were to do. The
godlings squabbled and fought for a time, but soon realized tllat they were the caretakers of an
world that they were supposed to fill with life. Working together, they each created a race
of creatures for the planet: the Ulithlogg, the 81arnogl. the Kinsitata. the Aederond, and the
Chorrdali. These mortal beings lived at first in harmony with one another and with their gods. the
Scarred Gods, as they came to be known. All was well with Jarnaka for many centuries.
i As time passed, Ihe Scarred Gods became less interested in the development of their
dharges and became more withdrawn from world affairs. Af1er all. their creations seemed to be
handling their own affairs quite nicely. The different races of Jarnaka. meanwhile, also became
more withdrawn. each preferring 10 deal with their own kind instead of the other races of Jarnaka.
Ih particular. the Ulithlogg, a species which had rleavily adopted recreational drugs inl0 its
c.ulture. became extremely reclusive. They had adopled the belief that they were. in fact the
only "real" creatures of Jarnaka. All other creatures and events were eilher hallucinations or
drug-induced dreams.
About six hundred years ago. many Ulithlogg discovered a black gemstone the size of a
numan fist in their torest homeland that seemed very powerful and magical in nature. One of the
cut the gemstone into the shape of a heart, and called it Corgarith's Heart. believing
an object of such magnificence and power could only come from the father of the Scarred
Gods. The jewel had many strange properties. but amongst the most fantastic was its ability 10
give those using it the ability to see into the future. The Ulithlogg viewed this ability as the
enhancement of their hallucinogenic society. and coveted it above all things as a holy
9bject. Corgarith's Heart represented ultimate transcendence to the Ulnhlogg.
i However, the Chorrdali and the Blarnogl had learned of Corgarith's Heart, and were
of the Ulithlogg. They desired the ability to see into the future. and be able to look into
the source of a seemingly omniscient power. Secretly, they agreed to work together to steal the
from the Ulithlogg, and to use Corgarith's Heart for their own purposes. For about a year,
two races amassed their forces in seclusion, merely biding their time. Then, in unison. the
qhorrdali and the Blarnogl attacked the Ulithlogg.
: Initially. the Ulithlogg were stunned by the surprise assault. They had never imagined
that their dreams could hurt them. However. they were hurt quite badly. and the Blarnogl were
to swittly seize Corgarith's Heart and take it into their own possession. The Blarnogl quickly
qackstabbed the Chorrdali. telling their former allies that Corgarith's Heart was only meant for
Blamogl eyes and hands. Enraged. the Chorrdali attacked the Blarnogl, now seeking the
powerlul jewel for their own, The Ulrthlogg also began to attack the Blarnogl, developing deadly
v?eapons at a frightening pace that outmatched anything the Blarnogl or the Chorrdali could
produce. An ugly three-way war ensued that lasted for many years.
I Throughout the years of war. all the races 01 Jarnaka constantly prayed for some form of
qivine intervention, some way for the situation to be resolved peaceably (the Ulilhlogg, Chorrdali.
and Blarnogl all prayed that they would be the sole possessors of Corgarrth's Heart, of course).
However. the Scarred Gods never responded. The mortal inhabitants of Jarnaka, for the most
believed that the Scarred Gods never answered because they no longer cared. In tact, the
Scarred Gods never answered because they were so absolutely disgusted by the greedy, childish
of their marta! charges. Thousands at lives had been lost all for the sake of a material
and the Scarred Gods were disappoirned in the actions of the creatures of Jarnaka. As a
result, most creatures of Jarnaka chose to believe that their gods had abandoned them. Only

Kinsitata still believed that the Scarred Gods existed, and still do to this day.

Jarnaka is connected to Rifts Earth through three main dimensional gateways. The most
commonly used rift between the two worlds can be lound on Earth right outside the free city of
Tolkeen. near the Coalition State of Lone Star. The other end of the rifts opens up right near an
tllithlogg village in the northern most inhabited lorest of Jarnaka. in the center of one 01 the
Blarnogl mud pits. This rift is used frequently by human traders and by the Kittani. who
make a discreet visit to Jarnaka through this rift. The other rift opening up on the
American continent of Ritts Earth appears high amidst the Rocky Mountains. close to
the border of the United States and Canada used to be. The Jarnaka entrance to this rift
be found amidst a forest 01 Korgata trees. right nearby and to the east of Chorrdalis and the
f0ogotu Peaks. This arrangement suits the Kinsitata living nearby just fine, as very few creatures
Rifts Earth live in this area and bother to travel to Jarnaka through the rift. The final main
leading from Jarnaka to Rifts Earth can be found in the New German Republic, near the ruins
0t the old city of Munich. This rifts enters Jarnaka amongst the Mogotu Peaks. well wrthin the
of Chorrdalis. At times. gargoyles and explorers from the New German Republic
'ravel to Jarnaka through this rift, but have to face the distinct possibility of being harassed and
attacked by Chorrdali warriors, who are mistrustful olloreigners.
: Only one ritt exists between Phase World and Jarnaka. This dimensional gateway
opens up on the sixth level of Phase City on Phase World, right in the heart of one of the worst
01 the city. The rift opens up on Jarnaka relatively close to the Chorrda!i city of Oligatis,
southernmost city 01 that country. near a heavily guarded gate leading out of the Mogotu
Peaks. Chorrdali patrols travel nearby this rift frequently, and usually attack all D-Bees and non-
of Jarnaka found near this rift without provocation. This is understandable. as many
t:hings seeking to leave this hellish region of Phase City are quite dangerous.
I
I R
AS usual, the ritts from Jarnaka to Wormwood lead to the same place most dimensional
gateways appear on that world· Worldgate. Only two rifts connect the two worlds. The most
frequently used portal between Jarnaka and Wormwood opens up on Jarnaka in one of the
Blarnogl mud plains in the southern regions of Ihe planet. less than a hundred miles from an
Ulithlogg village. This dimensional doorway is a commonly traveled trade route for creatures
between both worlds. The other rift opens up on Jarnaka near the Chorrdali city of Behdilna.
This is much less frequently used by the people of Wormwood. as mistrustful patrols of
warriors regularly patrol this area looking to attack intruders and foreigners as well .
Between the Banwok planet of Hrogrythlor and Jarnaka. there are three connecting rifts.
None are used very otten. as the inhabitants of Jarnaka generally want very little to do with the
new Blarnogl homeworld. One main gateway between the two worlds enters Hrogry1hlor in
Smiorx, the new central Blarnogl city. It was through this dimensional portal that the Blarnogl
were originally banished to Hrogrythlor. This particular rift enters Jarnaka close to a Kinsitata
village in a grove of Korgata trees, about ten miles trom the rift leading to the Rocky Mountains
on Earth. An extremely large rift opens up on Hrogrythlor from Jarnaka nearby the Banwok City
of Gaaaj. which connects to a dimensional portal lying amidst the southernmost regions of the
Mogotu Peaks. Due to the treacherous nature ot the Mogotu Peaks and the homicidally paranoid
military patrols of Banwok on Hrogry1hlor. this rift is almost never used by creatures at either er)d
of the rift The final rift between the two alien worlds can be found on Hrogrythlor just south bf
Smiorx. well outside the mountains and the city, in the middle of uninhabited grasslands. TIle
Jarnaka end of the dimensional doorway is located just inside a forest and an Ulithlogg village
near Chorrdalis and the Mogotu Peaks. This is the dimensional road by which certain Ulithlogg
and the Blarnogl have begun trading once more. No artificial Banwok rifts exist yet between the
two worlds. This is mostly due to the tact that the Banwok only know of Jarnaka as the original
homeworld of the Blarnogl. If anything ever happens to their perception of Jamaka that makes
them perceive that world as a threat. however, then artificial rifts will probably be created arid
exploratory panies sent to Jarnaka I
REACTION S ROM E A RTH OWERS
Due to Jarnaka's relative lack of interaction with other creatures and other worlds, not
too many creatures are aware of the world's existence. However, certain creatures and
individuals from Jarnaka have made their presence known on Rifts Earth. The Coalition is well
aware of Jarnaka's existence, and has been for some time. This is because the Coalition State
of Lone Star has been in contact with the Ulithlogg for a few years. Wandering Ulithlogg coming
through the Tolkeen rift were originally considered to be dangerous, lethal monsters, due to the
firepower that the Ulithlogg invariably brought with them from Rifts Earth. However, by chance.a
Coalition convoy managed to capture a Ulithlogg assassin wearing Kubita Power Armor, and
learned through interrogation that the Ulithlogg were relatively peaceful beings. Coalition
intelligence was shocked and amused to learn that their Ulithlogg captive did not consider the
Coalition. or the rest of the human race for lhat mal1er, to be real. The Ulithlogg considered his
whole experience to be a strange but interesting hallucination. The Coalition also learned at thiS
time that many of the Ulithlogg were deadly and professional assassins, but would only kill for ia
price. Using this information, Lone Star has been contracting Ulithlogg assassins for about'a
year or so. using them to eliminate Coalition resistance leaders and dissidents without the killings
being 1raced back to Lone Star. Lone Star's information has been given to the other Coalitidn
states as well. and Chi-Town and Iron Heart have begun negotiations with certain Ulithlogg
assassins to perform similar tasks for their governments. I
The New German Republic has also learned of Jarnaka - specifically, of the Ulithlogg:-
and have also begun to contract the aliens for their deadly abilities of stealth. Their missions
the Ulithlogg are different from those of the Coalition. however The New German RepubliC,
upon learning of the Ulithlogg and their mercenary nature. have used the Ulithlogg to two main
purposes. The first seNice the Ulithlogg provided for the NGR was to be a new supplier
mega-damage armor for the NGR military. The Ulithlogg have modified their power armor
to work for human pilots and have begun selling them to the NGR at a high price. The secorid
Ulithlogg service provided to the New German Republic was to serve as spies 10
iniormation about the Gargoyle Empire. While cyborgs and robots have done a decent job for
the New German Republic in gaining information about their gargoyle enemies, the Ulithlogg's
ability to phase through solid mat1er and to iight like some of the best mercenaries in the known
have made their services invaluable to the NGR. Unfortunately, the New German
considers the Ulithlogg to be reliable allies The Gargoyle Empire originally considered
the Ulithlogg to be enemies oi the state, but learned from captured Ulithlogg that the aliens will
YV0rk for the highest bidder. Hence, many Ulithlogg double agents are now being contracted by
the New German Republic intelligence agencies. and much misinformation is flowing freely
between both sides.
I Jarnaka has become something of a mylh and legend in the nation of New Dragcona in
America. and is something that country's leader. Melastirth. wants to learn desperately
about. Dragon legends sometimes talk of a distant world named Jarnaka created by the dragon
god Corgari1h, a veritable paradise for dragonkind. This matches Melastinh's vision of a world
ruled and completely controlled by dragons. Mosl dragons who have heard of the legend of
consider the story to be nothing but complete fiction. Melastirth, on the other hand, has
begun hearing of dimensional travelers who have been to the world of Jarnaka, and believes the
legend to be true. He has sent out explorers and mercenaries in earnest, oHering much gold to
?ny being who can prove the existence of Jarnaka and a dimensional portal to the planet. While
most of Melastirth's lieutenants consider their commander's actions to be an act of folly, they say
nothing, knowing that the actual world of Jarnaka, if not necessarily the legend, probably exists
ior real.

The Knights of the Order of the Temple consider both the Ulithlogg and the Chorrdali to

REACTIO FROM PHAS OR
Naruni Enterprises is the only group ot intelligent beings from Phase World to have had
dealings with the inhabitants of Jarnaka. During the war for the Demon Heart, Naruni
had many business dealings with the 8larnogl, selling them advanced weapons that
nearly allowed the 81arnogl to emerge victorious in this armed conflict. However, Naruni
Enterprises also attempted to engage in possible business dealings wrth the Ulithlogg and the
Chorrdali. It was only when the corporation realized that the Ulithlogg and the Chorrdali had very
I)ttle valuable items to trade for possible weaponry (except for their land - and neither race was
prepared to give that up) that their business agents gave up their sales plans, As time passed,
though, Naruni Enterprises began to hear of the Ulithlogg's prowess as power armor builders and

as assassins. Intrigued by this news. the company reopened contact with the Ulithlogg. A new
deal formed between the Ulithlogg and Naruni Enterprises. The galactic syndicate became the
Ulithlogg's exclusive distribution center in the Three Galaxies for their custom suits of power
armor. Naruni Enterprises also began to act as agents for Ulithlogg assassins. providing thei:r
seNices of death to many different worlds. Apart from this. there is very little interaction
between Phase World and Jamaka.
REACT IONS FROM H RO THL R
The Banwok. the dominant creatures of Hrogrythlor. only know that the 81arnogl once
came from Jarnaka. Nothing else about the planet interests them. and they generally have
ignored the world of Jarnaka entirely. However. the 8anwok erroneously believe that there are
still many more 81arnogl still living on Jarnaka. Contingency plans have been made by the
Banwok to investigate Jarnaka thoroughly and then eradicate the planet of all life forms if the
Blarnogl suddenly act in a hostile manner against the Banwok.
The Grynnyak. the wandering hunter-philosophers 01 Hrogrythlor, have encountered
race of creatures that they have become good friends and allies with on Jarnaka. These new
allies are the Kinsitata. Like the Kinsitata, the Grynnyak in the sacred nature of nature
and the wild. Both kinds of creatures have traveled between worlds to meet with each other. and
have talked extensively about restoring Jarnaka back to health, making it a peaceful world which
could possibly become a new home for the Grynnyak away fram the Banwok. For the moment,
though. amiable talks all that have been done.
C REA URES OF A A
The four intelligent native races of Jarnaka still remaining on the planet are the Ulithlogg.
the Chorrdali, the Aederond. and the Kinsitata. All of these creatures. except for the Kinsnata,
are supernatural in origin and are mega-damage creatures. Through the creation of the mystical
Scarlet Waters, though. the Kinsitata also have gained the capabili1y of becoming mega-damage
beings. All these creatures retain their mega-damage capacity on other worlds such as Rifts
Earth. Apart from these intelligent beings, there are a few forms of strange supernatural life on
Jarnaka as well . Perhaps the most bizarre of these beasts is known as the Juggernaut
Juggernauts are beings of living P.P.E., resembling giant balls of energy that roam the lands and
seas of Jarnaka in search of living beings from which to suck PP.E. energy. They are
considered the most dangerous beings on Jarnaka simply because they are almost impossible to
defeat in combat or run away from. The Kunisat is possibly a cousin of the Kinsitata. not very
intelligent but resembling a far larger and more physically powerlul version of the small Kinsitata.
It is thought that Kunisat wandering through rit1s to the Rocky Mountains of Rins Earth are
responsible for the "Bigfoot " legend. The Draykonis is a form of ancient dragon that roams the
mountains of the Mogotu Peaks. Draykonis dragons are related to dragons in the same way that
humans were once related to Cra-Magnon man. The Draykonis are mentally stunted in
comparison to normal dragons, but their innate magical abilities and physical size make them
more brutal opponent than a normal dragon. if not necessarily a more dangerous opponent. Also
living amongst the Mogotu Peaks are the Mogor . supernatural lizard-like demons with razor:-
sharp tails capable of cutting an armored man in half. They are malevolent and spiteful,
torturing and killing any creature that they mee\. No one is sure exactly where the Mogor came
from, but no one has really cared enough yetta find out.
The other. more normal creatures of Jarnaka are very similar. if not identical. to those
found on Rifts Earth. The two most abundant species, which are commonly hunted as game by
the more intelligent beings of Jarnaka. are the Jhakotay and the Torbitak. Jhakotay are simila:r
to deer. except they are about twice as large, possess shaggier fur and have six powerful
allowing them to reach blinding speeds in a relatively short time. Their main predators are the
Torbitak, two-headed wolves with venomous fangs. Natives of Ritts Earth encountering the
Torbitak have dubbed them the Cerebus Wolves, due to their resemblance to the mythical
i I
; creatu res. 80th these creatures can be usually found roaming the grasslands of Jarnaka. near
the shores of the oceans or on the outskirts of the forests.
Most of the intelligent lifeforms on Jarnaka tend to keep to themselves. avoiding contact
wiih the other races of the planet unless necessary. This is done for different reasons, though.
I The Chorrdah are avoided because of Iheir aggressive, warlike nature. The Ulilhlogg are
i shunned because every other intelligent creature considers the Ulithlogg to be highly unstable. if
inot insane. The small. genlle Kinsitata and Aederond avoid other creatures because they do not
iwish to be at1acked and killed. The plane! has remainM relatively peaceful due to these policies
j of relative isolation. but could change should the Ulithlogg or Chorrdali ever decide to become
I militant once more.
The Ulithlogg are a race of tall, gray-skinned humanoids vaguely resembling the human
! race, save for the fact they have four arms and are extremely tall and emaciated. Most Uliihlogg
i are between eight to nine feet in height, but weigh only one hundred to one hundred and fifty
I
· pounds. Their supernatural origins. however. give them exception strength and quickness which
,is not apparent in their appearance. The Ulithlogg have long, pointed fangs capable of doing
mega-damage. They typically wear nothing but a loincloth, and wear their hair in long dread lock-
like braids that stretch down to their waist. The lifespan of an Ulithlogg is only about thirty years,
but Ulithlogg are physically and mentally mature by the age of six_ Ulithlogg also possess the
innate ability to phase through solid matter. also they can only do this for limited periods of time.
The normal Ulithlogg cannot considered to be inteiligent by normal standards. Rather,
they are instead a race comprised mostly of idiot savants. The Ulithlogg Tinkers are the best
examples 01 this. Ulithlogg Tinkers are capable 01 creating incredibly sophisticated weaponry
and suits of power armor, but are completely incapable of explaining the theories and mechanics
behind their amazing inventions. They do not understand how they do things; rather, they just
!do them without comprehending what they are doing. Ulithlogg are notoriously rotten in giving
iexplanations for their actions, because they often do not understand what they are doing. either.
jSubconsciously, the Ulrthlogg can be considered geniuses, but on an interactive, conscious level
:they often look and act like morons.
Ulithlogg villages generally have no social structure at all, which suits the Ulithlogg just
,fine. They do not steal 1rom each other or kill one another. because t h e ~ 1 do not see a point to
those actions. Their society is communal, which everyone working to support themselves first
and everyone else who needs help next. All their needs are found in the forests - namely. food
and shelter - and aU other needs and wants can usually be found with relative ease. The only
diHicully the Ulrthlogg had acquiring in the past was metal ore for building power armor and
equipment. However. with their new contracts with Naruni Enterprises, this need has been easily
~ fulfilled. A chieftain, or Draygok. technically rules each U!ithlogg during a time of crisis and will
I be obeyed unhesitatingly during such situations, but qenerally never exercises power otherwise.
[The position of Draygok is hereditary. Most Ulithlogg are farmers, cultivating small field of crops
ioutside their forest villages. A select few Ulithlogg have become armorers. known to the
. Lllithlogg and other creatures as the Tinkers. Ever fewer Ulifhlogg have become assassins.
iThey maintain an organization similar to an Assassin's Guild that is fairly secretive, but has
: many contacts both on Jamaka and other worlds.
1 The most unique aspect of the Ulithlogg is their drug culture. Many strange herbs and
!weeds infest the forests of Jarnaka, which all creatures of Jarnaka avoid but the Ulithlogg. The
I Ulithlogg distill these strange plants into liquids, which they drink on a regular basis. The result
1
of this is that the Ulithlogg tend to have many hallucinatory experiences. These experiences
normally do not interfere with the rest of their lives. as they will never take drugs during times of
:working or during a crisis. However, constant drug use over the centuries has blended their
!sense of reality with their world of hallucinations. They believe that they are the only real race of
lcreatures in existence, Nothing else - humans, Chorrdali. Kinsitata, et cetera - are real. They
:are all just hallucinations manifested by the mind. The Ulithlogg call such creatures the
'Wakened. or those not of their dream-like world of existence Hence, the dealing of the Ulithlogg
12
with other mtelligent creatures tends to be a bit bizarre. Since the Ulithlogg do not believe sucm
creatures are real anyway, they treat their relations with other creatures on impulses and whims.
They have lillie concept of danger. either - an attack by other creatures upon an Ulithlogg is
considered 10 be the equivalent of a bad drug experience. (Note: the drugs of Jarnaka are
highly toxic and almost always lethal to non-natives of Jarnaka. Use of Ulithlogg drugs by
humans or other foreigners in Jarnaka requires a s1andard saving throw against poisons and
toxins, with failure resulting in instant death. A successful save means the user is violently ill for
24-72 hours, and receives none of the hallucinatory effects of the drugs.)
THE ASSASSIN' S G UILD
The Ulithlogg Assassins are organized in a formell group known as Psoddiahk - the
Hands of the Many. All Ulithlogg Assassins belong to the Hands of the Many. The Hands are
led by one of the most infamous Ulithlogg killers of all time, Blackfist Torbitak. He originally
organized the Hands when he recognized that the few UlithloQg assassins were often working at
cross purposes, and Ulrthlogg society was beginning to suffer due to these freelance artists.
With the formation of the Hands of the Many, the numbers of the Ulithlogg Assassins began to
grow steadily, and ti1eir contracting with other worlds became larger and more consistent.
Ulithlogg AssaSSins no longer found themselves accidentally battling against each other.
Although Blackfist did not intend this, the Hands of the Many also has wound up being one of the
most profitable businesses on Jarnaka.
The Hands of the Many seNes several purposes. The primary purpose is to be a central
contracting agency for Ulithlogg Assassins. The Ulithlogg no longer bother to flaunt their
seNices of death, as their reputation now has already generaled more business than they can
handle. Most potential clients contract the Ulithlogg through established contacts, such as
Naruni Enterprises or the Coalition. If not, they must contact the Hands of the Many on their
own, as the networ'K of killers remains secretive, and most Ulithlogg feign ignorance if asked
about the assassin's guild. Even if the Ulithlogg Assassins are contacted. some jobs are
summarily turned down anyway. The lIlithlogg like to be sure that a potential mission does nqt
interfere with an already contracted mission unless there is extremely good reason or profit
involved. Once contracted, though, the Ulithlogg Assassins are readily accessible and willing to
deal with their new allies. The Hands of the Many never accepts cash payments for their
contracts, preferring instead to barter for equipment. Depending on a mission, the price for an
assassination or spy mission usualJy ranges somewhere between the equivalent of two to twenty
Coalition credits.
The other main purpose of the Hands of the Many is to provide a source of supplies and
information tor Ulithlogg Assassins. Most of the information about other worlds and alien species
of creatures is held by the Hands of the Many, These databanks hold much intelligence about
the New German Republic and the Coalition, as well as data about the enemies of these
fac1ions. This information allows the lIlithlogg to learn about potential targets, as well as their
strengths and weaknesses. Ulrthlogg Assassins returning from a assignment are required to
place mission logs in the central databank, so that the information learned can potentially be
used by other lIlithlogg Assassins at a later time. The Hands of the Many also acquired armor
and weapons for assassins that otherwise might prove difficult 10 obtain on short notice. Besides
obtaining priority orders from the Ulithlogg Tinkers of the Fortunado Armories, the Hands of the
Many usually is able to acquire nearly any form of necessary equipment imaginable from Naruni
Enterprises. The price of this equipment is normally a mission for Naruni Enterprises, executed
by the top Lllithlogg Assassins of the Hands of the Many_
Blackfist Torbilak is the undisputed leader of !he Hands of the Many. While m o ~ t
decisions are made by majority vote of all present Uli1hlogg Assassins present when a judgment
about a potential assignment is to be made, Blackfist's word is always final. Should one of the
members of the Hands of the Many betray the trust of the assassin's guild or attempt to go
freelance, Blackfist's standing orders are that such assassins have joined the Wakened and a r ~
to be hunted and terminated with extreme prejudice. The Hands of the Many represents to the
Ulithlogg an ordered way in which to conduct their arts of surveillance and murder, and betrayal
is equivalent to desecrating their art. '
PHASI G
All Ulithlogg possess the innate ability to phase through solid matter. To put it simply,
they are able to place their molecular structure out of sync with the rest of the normal material
j
world. Moving through solid matter for the Ulithlogg becomes as simple as floating through air.
They also gain the ability to move on a vertical plane. either through air or through matter,
!floating much like a balloon. However. this primitive mode of flight is very slow, as Ulithlogg can
: only move up or down twenty feet per round in a phased state. Phasing is also fairly costly in
iterms of P P.E. to the Ulithlogg. An Ulithlogg needs to spend 5 P.P.E. per round in order to
I maintain a phased state. If the Ulithlogg runs out of P.P .E. while still phased within solid matter,
ithe Ulithlogg materializes, and is killed instantly (no saving throw)
! Phasing is what makes the Ulithlogg Assassins so deadly. In a phased state. the
: Ulithlogg are invisible to normal sight. and cannot be detected by conventional sight. In fact, the
only way to learn of a phased Ulithlogg's whereabouts is to use scrying magic o( psionics. This
allows Ulithlogg Assassins to infil1rate and locate t;lrgets in a normally well-defended location
with little difficulty. Both the New German Republic and the Coalition States, realizing this
problem. have begun research into new ways of possibly detecting UJithlogg Assassins. To date,
the research of both nations has yielded no results.
. The Ulithlogg. however, are extremely vulnerable to certain attacks in their phased state.
r Psionic or magical attacks directed against a phased Ulithlogg do double normal damage. In
I additional, electrical attacks do double damage to a phased Lllrthlogg. This makes phasing
I
Ulithlogg extremely wary of phasing through buildings. vehicles. and power armor, as they do not

I Most Ulithlogg do not treat their ability to phase lightly. They reseNe their supernatural

!only when they absolutely have to. preferring instead to use conventional methods of covert

Additional Notes: Ulithlogg Tinkers are true idiot savants. Their 1echnical skill abilities refer to
their abilities to perlorm tasks, not explain theory and facts to other people. Ulithlogg Tinkers
can never explain why or how they are able to do things, they just know they have certain gifts 0f
invention. Ulithlogg Tinkers usually work together in armories known as the Fortunado Armories
far below Jamaka's surface, far below their villages. so as not to disturb the other UIi1hlogg.
They are otten like children, pouting when things do not work as they planned and inventin'g
things out of whim rather than practicality. Many of their inventions are completely useless. If
given the opportunity to examine new machines. vehicles. and weapons, UIi1hlogg Tinkers go
crazy, trying to figure out how and why they work and how they can incorporate new ideas inio
their own inventions. Many Ulithlogg Tinkers will wander through the dimensions in search of
new ideas which they can use back at the Fortunado Armories.
ULITH OGG OWE AR OR
The Ulithlogg did not develop power armor until the war for the Demon Heart had begun.
Ulithlo99 Tinkers had developed some sophislicated equipment prior to this, equivalent to
twenty-first century Earth technology, but had never seen the need to develop weapons. T h ~ y
were able to make do with knives, sword, spears, and the like. The need for advanced weapon!y
came when Ihe Ulithlogg were attacked by the Chorrdali and the Blarnogl. Both these foes had
armaments that completely outmatched anything the Ulithlogg had. Quickly. the UlithloQg
Tinkers set about 10 develop suits of armor like the Blarnogl had. The first of these, the Kubita
Armor, was soon developed. It was basically nothing more that a well-equipped axo-skeleton for
an Ulithlogg, but it served its purpose. The technology edge that the enemies of the Ulithlogg
once possessed was now gone. ;
After the war, the Ulithlogg Tinkers became curious about the possibilities for robOt
armor. They experimented around for a while, and developed the Chianes Armor, a slight!y
more power suit of armor that could also allow a non-Ulithlogg to phase. They also developed at
this time the Zethkonor Armor, an even more powerful suit loaded up with extremely heavy
firepower; and Ihe Breythanok Armor, which would be more accurately described as a robOt
17
:vehicle than as power armor. Similar in appearance 10 the Coalition Spider Skull-Walker, the
I Brey1hanok has a eight-legged base wilh a large pilot's compartment/turre1 resting atop the legs
\
WhiCh looks like a py1hon's head. This was developed as a tactical weapon rather than a weapon
to be used in personal combat.
For the most part. these weapons were nothing but curiosities for the Ulithlogg, used
infrequently by Ulithlogg Assassins who were just given these suits of armor on loan by the
Ulithlogg Tinkers. It was not until Naruni Enterprises came to attempt business negotiations
lonce more with the Ulithlogg that the Ulithlogg Power Armor series became well-known
;throughoul many dimensions. Naruni Enterprises signed a deal with tt1e Ulithlogg Tinkers that
imade Naruni the exclusive galactic dealer of the armor. They would purchase the armor from
ithe Ulilhlogg, and then. be a.ble to sell the armor on Ph.ase World or to any olh.er planet they
I
'chose. The market prices listed under each armor listing reflects the price bemg offered by
Naruni Enterprises. While better deals can probably be had from the Ulfthlogg Tinkers
'Ithemselves (they have very little concept as to the value of their creations), they are also more
difficult to find. Player characters seeking Ulithlogg Power Armor are usually better off, in terms
101 acquiring such armor. dealing with Naruni Enterprises instead,
: The Ulithlogg are capable of building custom suits of armor. If given the schematics for
lany existing suit 01 armor. the Ulithlogg Tinkers can build and modify it to the specs of a
icustomer. The cost of building such armor is 150% of the market value of the copied armor, so
lusually the armor is intended to be customized for the wearer. Ulithlogg Tinkers also can build
joriginal weapons for their customers, giving charac1ers with no skills in building sophisticated
!weaponry an outlet for their ideas. The Ulithlogg, for example, have built scores of Scimitar
;Warrior robots lor the villain Tristan Spyre, allowing him to build up an automated army.
\Ulfthlogg Tinkers are generally fair in their dealings with alien customers, offering new ideas
:constantly to them about how to beller improve and modify their armor. After all. Ulithlogg
!Tinkers take pride in their work.

SCIMiTAR
(Not available as a player character)
Warriors are combat androids by Tristan Spyre and the Ulithlogg
Tinkers. The Scimitar Warrior the bulk of Spyre's military tore!'!s. The design
was originally used by Spyre during his in twenty·first century Earth, but 10 be a
25
ifailure. due to the poor construction materials of the time. However, wrth a new mega-damage
'capacrty and Ulithlogg lechnology. the robot has proven 10 be a deadly fighter.
Scimitar Warriors resemble demonic skeletons. with bony horns and a tail which can
!Iash out at opponents like a whip. They are dark red in color, making them difficult to see in dark
!conditions. While most Scimitar Warriors are built exclusively for Spyre, the Uhthlogg have
jbeen granted permission from Spyre to build the robots for clients as long as these buyers are
:not from RiMs Earth.
: The robot IS fairly mindless. having only a few programming parameters. When
iactivated. the robOI is told not to attack certain people and certain objects emitting a high
I
freqUency. Spyre's robOls are programmed not to kill or harm himself, his lieutenants, and the
Ulithlogg. This makes the robot extremely limited in its fu nctions, either suited tor guard duty or
direct combat. Hence, the Scimitar Warrior is unavailable as a player character.
I The design of the Scimitar Warriors has one fundamental flaw. Right below the chest
unit is a large ball link holding together the upper and lower body of the android. This area is
:very poorly constructed. and if destroyed renders the entire robot inert. The ball link is fairly
ismall. though. making it a difficult shot to hit. Even a called shot at the link must be made with a
Ipenal1y (-4 to hit). Many of Spyre's foes have discover this weakness, and have utilized this
Iknowledge 10 their advantage.

Below are listed the standard weapons created and used by the Ulithlogg. Almost any
Ulithlogg can easily acquire these weapons. As with other Ulithlogg devices, foreigners to
Jarnaka can only acquire these weapons directly from the Ulithlogg or from the weapons markets
on Phase World. They can be easily modified to accept any form of E-Clip, although the
Ulithlogg provide their own for the weapons.
Ulithlogg weapons. for the most part, resemble standard Rifts Earth weapons. One
major difference, though. is that the trigger mechanisms or the weapons are designed to
depressed with alllhe fingers of one hand. Unless a creature has supernatural S1rength or a P.S.
of over 30. two hands are required to use the weapons properly, Energy weapons, meaning
laser and plasma guns. which are made by the Ulithlogg also have two barrels. These weapons
have a conventional barrel and another barrel slung about six inches below the normal one.
When used in combat. two beams are discharged, converging on the aimed target. If one of the
barrels is somehow damaged or destroyed, the weapon is stiil functional, but only does half
damage.

located far beneath two Ulithlogg villages, one near Kingdom of Chorrdalis and one
:in the nor1hern reaches of Jarnaka. are the centers of Ulitr:ogg technology. These are the
,Fortunado Armories. These are the places where Ulithlogg have banded together to
'make the images in their minds into reality. The Armories are more than a labyrinth-like
;series of cave systems. each cave hewn out into a gigantic combination of a laboratory,
!workshop. and warehouse all in one. Each Ulithlogg Tinker is assigned his own lab, and
,possesses any piece of machining equipment needed to create his inventions. If the Ulithlogg
;Tinker needs something. he usually can build it himself. Ulithlogg Tinkers either mostly build
:armor and weapons for Naruni Enterprises and other customers or are completely independent,
!building whatever whim suits them. The two types of Ulithlogg Tinkers rarely coincide and do
'both. although the more maverick Tinkers are more than willing to help oul those build more
,conventional items.
I In a sense. the Armories are not well-defended just because few warriors inhabit them.
iThe Ulithlogg do not see a pressing need to defend against possible attack. Both Armories,
ithough, contain scores upon scores of advanced weaponry. much of it never tested, and most of
:the Ulithlogg Tinkers know how to use it. Apart from the weapons being built and stored there,
the place has no defense systems. They are not 2rmored, and no form of internal
;security exists.
Custom orders for armor and other items can be built by the Ulrthlogg, but the Tinkers
:have to be reached directly al the Fortunado Armories. will not accept Naruni Enterprises
2R
or anyone else 10 act as intermediaries. Specific schematics usually have to be laid out for ihe
Ulithlogg Tinkers as well, unless il uses things they already understand like conventional power
systems. phasing, and standard armor. Explaining new and complicated ideas to an Ulithlogg
Tinker is usually like explaining quantum physics to il two year old. They will not understand
such concepts until they build it. Once reached and contracted. orders for armor typically takes
six months to a year and the labor is not cheap. The Ulrthlogg Tinkers normally charge bizarre
prices for their services. One Ulithlogg Tinker is known to demand six adult dragon skulls for
every suit ot armor he produces. Another has demanded a suit of Kit1ani Equestrian Armor in
exchange for every surt of armor produced. A lew Ulithlogg Tinkers just ask for money, but not
many. Paying 011 Ulithlogg Tinkers can be incredibly dangerous.
The Fortunado Armories, unlike the Hands of the Many, does nol function as a guild.
There are no leaders of the Armories. and they do not set prices or sanction Ihe more rebellious
Ulithlogg Tinkers. Rather. the place is commune, a haven for new ideas and concepts where the
Ulithlogg Tinkers can pool their resources and create many wonclrous items of beauty and many
instruments 01 destruction at the same lime.

The Chorrdali are a race of humanoids that are nearly identical in appearance to
humans The only difference is that they have no hair upon their bodies. Instead. bluish-green
patches of scales cover the top of their heads, their forearms. and their chests. They also have
bright red reptilian eyes O1herwise, they are exactly like humans in terms of their internal
physiology. their lifespans. and their appearance. Chorrdali custom d:ctates that all Chorrdali
wear long robes similar to togas. with the color indicating socia! rank. Ali Chorrdali women are
considered to be part 01 the ruling class, and wear scarlet robes. Women are considered to be
the more powerful sex, and are treated as such. Chorrdali male leaders and soldiers wear azure
robes. the farmers and the merchants wear emerald robes, and the slave class wears coarse
brown robes. Armor is rarely worn in public unless it is deemed absolutely necessary.
Chorrdali are extremely passionate and aggressive by nature. They are quick to anger,
and rarely forget insults or threats made against them. Fighting is a commonplace pastime
amongst the Chorrdali. particularly over women. They usually speak their mind, and are not
afraid to question authority. The entire social structure is based upon the strong surviving and
the weak perishing. The rulers ot the cities, the Vernalik, acquire their position through a trial by
combat If a Chorrdali feels that he or she would be a better ruler than the current Vernalik, that
Chorrdali can challenge Ihe Vemalik to a death match, to be held in the center of the city. The
challenge can never be turned down. No armor may be used in the trial; only stone weapons. If
the Chorrdali kills the Vernalik and wins the death match, then that Chorrdali becomes the new
Vernalik. The Vernalik's word is absolute law - to disobey the words ot the Vernalik means either
to become a slave or be killed by slow torture i1 already a slave. The Grand Vernalik, who leads
the entire country of Chorrdalis. is chosen through a less rigorous process. When a Grand
Vernalik dies, the other Vernaliks elect one of their own to become the new Grand Vernalik. The
vacated position of Vernalik is filled through new challengers in the death matches.
The Chondali live in stone buildings. made from mud but tumed into M.O.C. struC1ures
through the use of the Scarlet Waters (see below). Their towns resemble those of Rifts Earth in
the Old West· a few street of buildings and many farms lying just outside the main city. About
four thousand Chorrdali live in each city, with ten thousand Chorrdali living in the caprtal city of
Nehfarris. Much 01 the milrtary is transient population, constantly moving from one city to
another, patrolling the country and defending against intruders. A large portion of Chorrdaiis'
population is also comprised 01 slaves· as much as 15% are owned by other Chorrdali and used
in menial labor. Not all of these slaves are Chorrdali, though. Captured Blarnogl. humans, and
other weaker races captured by Chorrdali patrols are enslaved to perform the will of the ruling
Charrdali. Custom dictates that slaves are treated kindly and not mistreated. However. slaves
have no rights in Chorrdalis whatsoever. and have no chance at freedom except fOf escape.
The Chorrdali are very loyat to their friends. However. their friends usually are only
Chandali. They distrust all the other races of Jarnaka. with the exception of perhaps the
29
(Kinsitala. They particularly hate the Ulrthlogg. whom :hey consicier to be orugged-out halt-wits

I Within lhe Caves are literally tons of edible. lichens called derla!. Derial

!I'organic version of military food paste Combined with the catches of infrequent hunting parties
bringing back game 1rom the outside wodd, food and are easily provided for. Also
lrunning beneath the Caves of Gethsalij are the Scailet Waters (!';ee below for further details).
iThe Waters allow the Chorrdali Barbarians to stay healthy and to become powerful like their
IChorrdali soldier brethren. With these resources on their side, Chorrdali Barbarians have
!become powerful in 1heir own right, allowing Ihem to remain independent of the Kingdom of
iChorrdalis
j The Chondali Barbarians in the Caves of Gethsalij are ruled by an infamous former
!Chorrdali slave named Vardiba D'Exile, who killed his mast"?!" and eventually made his way to
!the Caves. Vardiba is a fair and free-minded individual. c:lthough he has a vicious temper.
IVardiba laid down the few laws that exist among the Chorrdali Barbarians. which essentially are
!accepting all persecuted individuals seeking refuge and helping ons another whenever possible.
iVardiba insists that all disputes which cannot be resolved peacefully be resolved by death match
!combat. so most Barbarians try to work oul their diHerences through dialogue. Vardiba has also
'begun talks with a m,m on Wormwood about trade and forming an alliance· Dorsey Pentecost.
:Dorsey sympathizes with the Chorrdali Barbarians. but the rest of the Kingdom of Light is
:distrustlul of Vardiba D'Exile and his followers. Only words exist two for now.
The Chorrdrtli Barbarians rarely travel outside the tJut when they do. they always
;wear S10ne armor (see below) and are armed. They will attack and kill any regular Chorrdali
Imilitia that they encounter on their journeys, and are almost always successful. The form-fitting
jstone armor has led many offworlders to believe that Chorrdali B2rbari2r1S and regular Chorrdali
iare distinct and separate creatures. The Barbarians encourage this belief, as it help them to hide
:their goings-on from the rest of the Chorrdali population. The Chcrrdali could care less it some
ialien told them about strange hulking stone creatures, but care if such aliens told them
iabout odd Chorrdali roaming the countryside. While the Barbarians would dearly love
:to rejoin their brethren, 1hey know that they cannot do so at price of their freedom.

; In the attermath of the war for the Demon Heart, the Chorrdali and the Kinsitata together
iformed an alliance designed to restore Jarnaka back to its origmal selt The Kinsitata knew of a
ialien dimension known only as Lidzal!e (see the forthcoming Rifts Dimension Book: The
[
Crimson Maelstrom for details), which possessed red healing waters that could supposedly
restore or heal anything. The Kinsitata joined forces with the few Chorrdali wizards in existence,
land opened a rift to lidzalle, trying to draw these healing waters to their own worlds. The effort
!was partially successful. In the northern reaches of Jarnaka (essentially, all bodies of water,
iexcluding the oceans, north of the equator), regular bodies of water began to run red, restoring
imuch of the northern parts 01 Jarnaka to its original form However. the rif1 also brought through
ithe alien creatures known as the Magar and the Juggernauts. \ll'hich sought to destroy all they
"I{)
could find on Jarnaka. The Chorrdali blamed the f'\.lIiISII,i:!ld error. and have
since broken otf all contact with the Kinsitata.

lsociely is more thai of an advisor and shaman than a leader. The Druids also serve as the

isongs. passed down trom generation to generation. It is the duty of a novice Kinsitata Druid to
Ilearn the songs irom his elders. adding on to them during his or her lifetime. Individual Kinsitata
[are free to come and go between villages as they please, but most tend to stay with their families
i in a single village all of their lives. They live in the trees themselves. making simple huts out of
I mud and dead branches from other trees. Their complete respect for life makes them

" The Kinsitata are very distrustful of the other native races of Jarnaka. and shy away from
[them in any encounter. They will not believe these creatures unless absolute proof of their word
Ican be easily obtained. However, when it comes to other creatures, the Kinsitata are very
lcurious and inquiring. They are very trustful of strange looking creatures that they do not
[recognize. This naive trust comes from the fact that the Kinsitata believe such odd creatures to
ibe messengers of the Scarred Gods, and may represent the return of the gods to Jarnaka.
!Oragons. in particular, are worshipped like deities, and many Kinsitata have been exploited
ishamelessly in recent times by certain cunning dragons. Their simple trusting of others has also
;proven dangerous, i1 not lethal, to many Kinsitala. An entire Kinsrtata village was completely
!destroyed by a Banwok exploration party (see Rifts Dimension Book: The Banwok Hunters
ifar details on the 8anwok). The Kinsitata. greeting the Banwok with open arms, were completely

intending to turn inlo one of the cultural centers of the universe.
The problem was, the Scarred Gods were about as as their creations. They
squabbled and fought amongst themselves as well as their mortal creations. The creatures of
Jarnaka began to loathe and despise the constant interference of the meddling godlings in their
lives. The worShip and respect that the Scarred once enjoyed began to slowly
dissipate. Eventually. the Scarred Gods began to realize that constant presence amidst the
mortal societies was extremely unwelcome. aback by 1his lealizalion. the Scarred Gods

created by the godling Ulith. infused a piece of obsidian with the ability to let Ihe bearer see
ever so slightly into the future, hopefully allowing that creature and the other inhabitants of
Jamaka to avoid trouble.
This piece of of course, was the stone now know" as the Demon Heart, Ihe
stone which banished the entire race of the Blamogl to the world of Hrogrythlor and began a
decades-long pianetary war. Intended to help the creatures of Jarnaka. the stone only served to
indirectly slaughter thousands and breed hatred and discord The godlings, who had
noticed the seeds of sown. had foolishly chosen not to interfere and try to prevent
the slaughter, thinking their promise 10 not interfere in the mortal world was more important
than anything else. However. in the aftermath of the bloodshed, Gods realized that
they had made yet another They returned to the mortal seeking to amend the
havoc they had inadvertently brought about.
The Scarred found nothing but hateful races and with most of the rag\,!
being directed their way. people of Jamaka wanted answers to the now-seemingly
senseless slaughter, but there were no answers to be found, The Blarnogl soaked up a
lot of the blame, but the Gods were also blamed to to do anything to stop the
fighting. They were for creating the Demon Heart in the first place. Realizing that
they had finally lost the 01 most of their children. 1he decided to start over

I Korgata Trees can also bestow a portion of their own personal stores of P.P.E. upon the
Kinsitata Druids. allowing the druids more magical power than norm211y possible. This creates a

THE BLARNOGL
The specific details about the Blamogl race and the Blarnogl R.C.C.s are fully detailed
elsewhere. in the Ritts Dimension Book: The 8anwok Hunters. However, in this section, the
information about the Blarnogl's al1i1udesJopinions towards the dimension of Jarnaka and the few
B!arnogl still residing in Jarnaka are given.
The Blarnogl oj Jarnaka, which number less than ten thousand, are primarily slaves in
the Kingdom of Chorrdalis. Here, they are treated by their Chorrdali masters as the lowest form
of fife imaginable. Cruelty and sadism are the norms in how these Blarnogl are treated. The
dirtiest. most demeaning tasks possible are always given to the Blarnogl slaves. The Chorrdali
do not even consider the Blarnogl to be real living beings; they are instead thought to be like
toys which can be played with, abused, and broken on a whim. Strangely enough, these Blarnogl
slaves still are as proud and arrogant as their ancestors first placed in slavery before them were.
The Blarnogl believe themselves to be far bet1er than the Chorrdali. whom they regard as brutish
idiots. They still are the primary troublemakers in the Kingdom of Chorrdalis, inciting slave riots,
unleashing terrorist-style at1acks at the Charrdali nobility. and just creating mayhem whenever
48
possible. Of course, these actions only serve to anger the Chorrdali even more against the
Blarnogl, and Ihese insolent actions are judged to require harsh retribution. From an objective
viewpoint. it would seem that one of the bast things the Chondali could do be to tree
Blarnogl slaves and force them to leave Chorrdalis. The Blarnogl might a sense of
respe(:,:t for the Chorrdali in this situation, and Ihe Chorrdali would rid themselves the biggel:;t
source of crime present in their kingdom. However, since most Chorrdali and Blarnogl are too
proud and 100 stubborn 10 forgive one another for the sins of the past, such a situation would
probably never happen without outside inter.,rention.
The few Blarnogl who live iii the Caves of Gethsalij easily live among the other Chorrdali
and other beings which are found there. This is because almost all those who rank
among the of Vardiba hate everything that the Kingdom of Chorrdalis stands for.
These free Blarnogl Chorrdali Barbarians, as they believe in Ihe same freespirited
values that Ihey personally believe in as well. Blamogl alsD realize that the Chorrdali
Barbarians represent their best hope for freeing their enslaved brethren. The other residents of
the Caves of Gethsalij believe the Blarnogl warriors amidst their own ranks to be loyal and
courageous lighters. if not also highly emotional and just a little un:5talt:>le.
The Blarnogl which have migrated to the dimension of could care about
what happens on Jarnaka. They are aware that the Chorrdali have other of their own
kind, and they do not really care. Those Blarnogl just happened to be unlucky. This does not.
however. mean that they hate the Chorrdali any less than any other Blarnogl to be found on
Jarnaka. It is just that between their operations of mining sormantine and running the
interdimensional markets of they really do not have the time or the interest in
revenge on the Chorrdali. idea of wiping out the Chorrdali and reclaiming their interests on
Jarnaka is a prevalent one amongst the Blarnogl. but it is one by necessity that has
shelved for future considerations.
The races of the Aederond and the Kinsitata are considered by the Blarnogl of
Hrogrythlor to be "gnorant savages. and they consistently ignore them whenever possible. The
only species of creatures on Jarnaka for which the Slarnogi still have any interest are the
Ulithlogg. While many Ulith!ogg on Jarnaka still have not forgiven the tor their role in
the war for the Demon Heart, a small group Ulithlogg, mostly armorers, that the policy
of forgive and forget means high profits. Several enterprising secretly

that world. Only what future mischief and mayhem their actions will bring about to

TH AEDEROND
The Aederond are physically similar to a cross frogs and humankind. They are
amphibian, they stand erect and resembled humanoids in stature. They typically stand about
live feet and have bright orange mottled skin. usually have darker, more reddish skin,
have brighter. yellowish skin tones. They long, webbed, slender hands.
with cruel talons located on the end of their fingers. They sets of gill as well as
lungs, and are equally comfortable living underwater as Jiving on The Aederond
also have extremely large black eyes located directly apart from other on the ot their
heads, giving them a 360 field of view around them. They usually wear little apart from
rags and tall grasses sewn to resemble tattered togas.
Aederond are highly creatures. They are quick to fight first
and think secondly in a combative are extremely impatient, wanting to see the
49
results of their actions without having to wait. Aederond are notoriously horrible at planning or at
understanding difficult concepts, as they do not like to expend the energy required to think about
a given situatlon. Their explosive temper also does not help their patience. Aederond are slow
to make friends and very quick to make bitter enemies, especially since insults are an art form
among the Aederond people. However, a friend of an Aederond is a friend for life, whether the
other person in question likes it or not.
Aederond do not get along well with each other, let alone the remaining races of
Jarnaka. Aederond are nomadic by nature, either traveling alone or with a mate and possibly a
child. They intensely dislike having to work with others; an Aederond who travels with a group is
a rare individual indeed, The only other race that the Aederond can be said to respect on
Jarnaka are the Kinsitata, whom they believe to love their home planet and the beauty of the
nature as much as they do themselves. The Ulithlogg, Chorrdali, and Blarnogl are considered to
be plotting, plodding (ilth by the Aederond, and they will have absolutely nothing to do with the
creatures of those races unless given no alternative. In general. the Aederond are fairly private
and secretive, and live like hermits, avoiding all others whenever possible.
The Aederond philosophy of life is to experience everything possible. They have a
burning desire to see everything, to create everything to do everything possible within their
lifetimes. As such, most Aederond have tumed out to be jacks-of-all-trade but masters of
nothing. In some ways. they are like children, demanding to do the impossible, especially when
the action is forbidden to them. They are fearless questers of the truth and new things, and
anyone attempting to stand in their way will probably be in for big trouble. Their curiosfty is not
only limited to Jamaka, either; Aederond have been known to travel to Wormwood. Phase
World. Rifts Earth. Hrogrythlor, Qem'Chomudu, and many other assorted worlds and dimensions
as well. The desire to learn and see everything is the guiding instinct which rules the lives of
most Aederond. This. above anything else imaginable. is the most important dimension of their
lives.
THE SWAMPLANDS
The Aederond like to live and travel along the swampy shorelines on the continents of
Jarnaka. known collectively as the Swamplands. These marshes are comprised mostly of
saltwater whh a slight sulfuric content, which does not particularly bother the Aederond but can
make other creatures traveling through the area nauseous. Without proper ventilating gear,
creatures caught in this area are -2 on any initiative roll and -3 on all rotls to strike, parry, and
dodge. The Aederond are equally comfortable living on the land or beneath the boggy waters.
In the past few years, two other groups 01 creatures have begun to make their homes
amidst the Swamplands as well. The first such group are 1he Draykonis, the ancestral oHshoots
of the dragons. Until recently, most draykonis had lived comfortably within the mountains and
caves of the Mogotu Peaks. With the introduction ot the demonic Mogar into these mountains,
though, a pitched battle began for the right to claim the mountains. This is a battle that in recent
years has turned in favor of the Mogor. Being driven out of the Mogotu Peaks. the draykonis
have sought to find a new home in which to establish themselves. The relatively uninhabited
regions of the Swamplands. so far. have served their needs adequately. Unfortunately for the
other creatures of Jarnaka. this means that one of the deadliest creatures imaginable now
predominately inhabits the region of the Swamplands as well.
The Rifts supervillain known as Tristan Spyre has also set up many military outposts
among the Swamplands. While he has maintained his scientific laboratories in more secluded
regions scattered around Jarnaka, his mercenary military bases has been primarily located in
these areas of marshlands. Part of the reason for using the Swamplands as a home base is
because the presence of the draykonis and the noxious fumes serves as a natural deterrent
against unwanted intruders. Also. the harshness of the region helps to toughen up the training of
his mercenary soldiers. Finally, the bases are strategically located near several key strategic ley
line nexuses of Jarnaka. From these locations, Spyre could field a small army at several
locations on Ritts Earth or other dimensions at a moment's notice. The Aederond, so far, have
been the only sentient beings in recent times to traverse the Swamplands with little difficulty. All
other beings have faced some nasty encounters when going through 1he Swamplands.

applied to the skin of both the parasite and the host can effectively cause the Glider to detach.
This poses no problem for mega-damage creatures who have Gliders attached to them, as
standard flame can the parasites. but normal creatures unfortunately have to suffer in order
to have the Gliders removed. Physically removing the Glider from a person is an extremely bad
idea. The Gliders have known to rip the limbs off of their hosts rather than let go, included
those of mega-damage Their hooks are mystic in nature and virtually indestructible.
Fire is the only relatively way to remove a Glider from its host
The Aederond learned. 1hough, tha1 by placing the Aederond Gliders along the lengths of
their arms and partially running down the lorso. the Gliders could farm viable for a
humanoid. This property. in reality. owes more 10 magic than to physics. By expending a

speeds of 90 mller per hour. and up to one hundred fifty an hour in a downward power

Ihese parasites.
Another useful function of the Gliders is that they can be used as shields. Each Glider
possesses 75 M.O.C, They may used to parry aHacks in hand to hand combat. The Gliders
also provided their hosts a bonus to parry in combat. as they have a vested interesl in
keeping their hosts and food alive. Many Aederond have it useful to attach
Gliders to their arms for no other reason but to help defend themselves in case of attack.
The main problem with the is that their are parasites. In to the P,P,E,

in jeopardy due to their curiosity. and that they also usually do not realize that they are often in
trouble. The Aederond tend to be a little selfish, trying to uphold their interest above everyone
else's, even their friends. The Aederond are usually the first to volunteer to undertake something

T JUGG NAUT
(Not Available as a Player Character)
The Juggernaut is a living, thinking, mass of P,P.E. energy. It floats slowly over the
surface 01 Jarnaka a glowing, ominous sphere, moving along at a plodding pace while arcs
of magical energy spark from Its surface towards the ground and tendrils bum everything in
sight. The Juggernaut has no known point of origin or known purpose. AI! that is known about
their race is tha1 they first appeared on 1he surface of Jarnaka when the Chorrdali and the
Kinsitata strove to bring the Scarlet Waters to Jarnaka. Twelve Juggernauts in all are known to
swarm over the surface of the planet; ~ is unknown if these creatures can reproduce.
The Juggernaut has been known to randomly annihilate random villages of creatures,
The mystical being will slowly hover over an inhabited area, and proceeded to bombard the
entire area with bolts of magical energy until everything once living below the Juggemaut has
died, Much like a magical sacrifice. the Juggernaut is capable of absorbing twice the normal
amount of P,P.E. available to a person at the moment of death. The Juggernaut has been
known to kill hundreds oi individuals at once. absorbing thousands of P,P.E. in mere minutes as
the slaughter continues,
What makes the Juggernaut one of the deadly creatures known in the multiverse is that
it is virtually impossible to kill. II is immune to nearly every form 01 attack. Railguns. hand to
hand weapons capable 01 inflicting mega-damage, and their like have some effect on the
creature, but conventional energy weapons and plasma weapons have no effect on the
Juggernaut. Worse, magical attaCks (even summoned creatures) and psionic effects add to the
strength of the Juggernaut. The appropriate P.P.E. and I.S.P. values of these forms of attacks
are merely added into the P.P. E. total for the Juggernaut. A well-meaning magical attack on a
Juggernaut can actually do more harm than good. However, if the Juggernaut is somehow
drained of all its own P.P.E" it would be slain instantly. Juggernauts also have no known
methods of communication, and cannot be reasoned with. They are simply enigmatic machines
of total destruction.

THE DRA YKONIS
(Not Available as a Player Character)
The race of the draykonis are genetic offshoots of ancient dragons. While the race of
dragonkind became more intelligent and more cultured, the draykonis became more savage,
powerful, and violent. Modern dragons consider the draykonis to be little more than primates. if
they do believe in them at all. The draykonis is thought of as more a creature found in fairy tales
than in life.
However, the draykonis are quite real, and inhabit the world of Jarnaka. They had
inhabited the Mogotu Peaks peaceably for many centuries, but with the intrusion of the Magar in
these mountains, the draykonis have slowly begun migrating to the Swamplands of Jarnaka.
The draykonis are more powertul than the Magar, but are less in number. Only fifty or SO
draykonis inhabn the entire world of Jamaka. A new draykonis is perhaps born every other
century, to the draykonis population is not going to grow substantially any time soon.
The draykonis physically resembles a normal dragon in many ways. The closest breed
of dragon that they resemble in appearance is the fire dragon. However, the draykonis has two
heads, each sprouting from two slender necks stemming in the upper body. The draykonis also
has a large eye imbedded in its chest. about thirty feet in diameter. The eye, according to
folklore, is called the Eye of St. Antioch. Saint Antioch was supposedly a knight kom the
medieval times of the history of Rifts Earth who slew a draykonis in single combat by destroying
the eye with his lance. However, in reality, destroying the Eye on a real draykonis would have
little eHect except to enrage the draykonis. The Eye possesses no power of sight. Instead, it is
capable of unleashing a massive bolt of energy capable of paralyzing as well as hurting its
enemies. Draykonis are also not capable of teleporting by natural means or changing their form.
54
While the draykonis are crafty fighters, they are greedy and sneaky by nature. They
never attack anything outright when they can first steal trom it and slit its throat in the dark of
night. Draykonis love to hoard stolen treasure and other ill-gotten booty in their cavernous lairs.
They regularly lie, cheat and cheat to get whatever they want. A draykonis is never 10 be
trusted. Draykonis are also fairly dumb. Foes of the draykonis have often found it more
beneficial 10 negotiate with the evil creatures rather than fight with them, as the draykonis are
easily duped. Once tricked, though, a draykonis will do all in power to hunt down and kill
those who it believes deceived it.
While not very bright, the draykonis have an instinctual grasp of temporal magic (as per
the book Rifts England). such, they are of and utilizing any temporal spell
they wish at the 14th level ability. They are not of teaching this to anyone
although they might try to trick into Setween their spells, their
physical brawn. and their nature, the are dangerous opponents who should

THE GOR
Not Available as a Player Character)
The of the race of the Mogor is completely unknown. It is commonly thought that
they are demons some sort hellish dimension. but no person known been able to
concretely prove any1hing thus What is known is that the Magar now live in Jamaka. and
bring death and mindless destruction wherever they roam on the small planet.
The Mogor were originally brought to Jarnaka quite by accident. In the at1empt to heal
their world, the Chorrdali and the Kinsnata brought over a few alien creatures to Jamaka as
as bringing the cleansing Scarlet Waters through a rift. One kind of these creatures was the
Magar. At first, the Magar did nothing, unsure of they were or for what reason were
brought to Jamaka. When no answers were immediately forthcoming, they decided that they did
not care about the answers to their questions. They began to make their home in the Mogotu
driving outlhe draykonis living there through trickery and through brute force.
Mogor are close to twenty tall, and resemble the descriptions of demons and devils
from ancient lore. They have goat's heads, dark reddish scaly skin. large bat wings which allow
them to fly at incredible speeds. and spiked tails which can fatally poison their foes. The Magar
do they can to encourage the belief that they are indeed demons from hell, as it helps to
intimidate olhers in battle.
In general. the Mogor are brutish. nasty, and just plain vicious, They delight in torturing
innocents taking advantage of those weaker than themselves. They have no sense at
compassion or decency, and simply take what they want from others without considering the
consequences of their actions, They are extremely tough-minded, and love to fight. They
refuse to back down from fights, even ones that will mean their own destruction.
Because of their bloodthirsty, vicious disposition, the Mogor are extremely dangerous opponents
to any adventurer.

THE KUNISAT
Not Available as a Player Character)
The Kunisat are simian cousins of the Kinsitata. Actually, the Kunisat are probably more
closely related to the African gorillas of Rifts Earth than to the Kinsi1ata. The Kunisat are
typically close to ten feet tall, and also resemble regular in every way except for the fact that
they have dark blue fur. They live mostly in the deepest parts of the jungles of Jarnaka, in even
more secluded areas than the Kinsitata. They live in packs ranging from four to eight
individuals, and rarely travel more than five miles beyond the areas which they call their home
territory.
Unlike the Kinsitata, the Kunisat cannot talk and are not very culturally sophisticated.
However, they are still fairly intelligent, and occasionally display intuitive flashes of brilliance. If
they encounter sentient beings whom they judge to be friendly, the Kunisat will at1empt to
communicate with these individuals by drawing pictures in the dirt or through hand gestures.
The Kunisat still have not developed the use of tools, and still perform all functions of their daily
lives either through the use of their hands or not at alL
Kunisat can be brutal creatures in provoked, but in general are very gentle and shy.
They will approach no other creature at any time, except for other Kunisat, unless they are given
a good reason to believe that strangers will be friendly for some reason. Once they feel they
have befriended a creature, the Kunisat will attempt to help out that being in its own limited form
of understanding. However, once that being leaves the Kunisat's territory, the Kunisat will rarely
follow its new friend beyond those borders. If the Kunisat is betrayed or ;s attacked, though, the
Kunisat will usually run unless others of its kind, particularly young Kunisat, are endangered.
Then, it will defend its friends to the death. The Kunisat is a simple but powerful being which is
one of the brighter aspects of the world of Jarnaka.

Vardiba Uberduervar. a former in the city of Oligalis, become the
mosl hunted criminal in history of the Kingdom of Chorrdalis. Now known as Vardiba
he organized the Chorrdali Barbarians and other runaway into a military
laction capable of challenging the Kingdom's own military forces.
Vardiba was born a slave thirty-three years ago. His master was a cruel and sadistic
man, and often beat young Vardiba and his fellow slaves for no reason at all. The friends of
Vardiba's master were also violent and unnecessarily brutal, and as far as the slave could see,
all slaves were treated as cheap and worthless property. Vardiba learned about pain and
suffering at an early age, and young Chorrdali came to believe steadfastly that no sentient
being should ever suffer in this manner.
At the of twenty, Vardiba decided that he could no longer allow his master to keep
inflicting his cruelties upon others. One night, Vardiba crept up to his master's bed while the
arrogant noble slept, and his throat with a stone knife. Vardiba and three other made
a break for freedom and the city walls, but only Vardiba successfully eluded the Chorrdali
soldiers. other were caught and hung.
Once outside the city. Vardiba wandered aimlessly for several months, always careful to
escape notice of wandering Chorrdali patrol. Eventually, Vardiba discovered the Chorrdali
who welcomed him and allowed him to join their ranks. Vardiba quickly became one
of the outspoken of the and it was his beliefs in freedom and
equality for all that first Blarnogl and other aliens amidst their ranks. It

autobiography of Tristan Spyrs
Most beings currently residing an Jarnaka originally from Rifts Earth have some
connection with the villain Tristan Spyre. Spyre has developed a small military force, utilizing
Ulithlogg technology, that is mast likely capable of taking over the Coalition State of Lone Star.
However, this is far from the end of Spyre's dreams. The time that he lives in may have
changed, but his plans have not. He still wants to take over the world known as Earth. In fact.
he believes that his task will be even simpler now, as the forces controlling the nations of Rifts
Earth are less powerful and less centralized than in the twenty-first century. He is a man hell-
bent on conquest, and so are his followers. Nothing can change Tristan Spyre's dream for
complete conquest of Rifts Earth. presents ideas for possible adventures besides

Tristan Spyre was born in the late twentieth century in a parallel dimension of Earth. His
parents were Antonio and Claudia Spyre, two world-renowned psychologists who taught at Yale
University.' At an early age, Tristan's parents noticed how frighteningly their child was.
They also noticed young Tristan seemed to have no instinctual concept of morals. They
tried to give him a good, sound, moral to draw upon, but somehow it was always flawed.
Tristan Spyre regarded everyone around him as his intellectual inferior, including his parents.

NOTES FROM THE TIME MACHINE

I wrote "Demon Bean Falling" in Ihe winter of 1994/1995, when I was a senior at the University of Notre Dame. I'd been running a regular RJFTS campaign for my friends since 1990, and had become obsessed with two things: becoming a writer, and working for Palladium Books. The material in Ihis book (along with the material in its companion, "The Banwok Hunters") reflect a 101 of the original material I wrote and used in my ongoing RIFTS campaign during that time. I submitted both the manuscript for this book and "The Banwok Hunters" to Palladium Books in the spring of 1995. For a while, illooked like Palladium migh1 publish them. Ultimately, they didn't. I learned a lot from that experience, though, and ultimately it helped me to get published, and to become a better writer. Both "Demon Heart Falling" and "The Banwok Hunters" were put in storage, and were forgotten. I moved on to other games, and other things. Fast-forward just about fifteen years later, to the fall of2009. While looking for some other old games in the attic, I found one of the original copies of "Demon Hearl Falling" - probably the only copy still in existence. I'd printed some copies of it for my friends way back in the day, complete with a cover and comb binding. I'd assumed that all copies - including my own - were long-lost to the ravages of time. Wrong. Here was the last copy, staring me in the face. So I re-read it. And liked it. It's not the greatest book in the world, ('II be honest. For that matter, it's probably not good. It's decent. It's an excellent reflection oflhe author I was back then - raw, hungry, passionate, and practically exploding wilh ideas. It lacks a lot of the polish and refinement needed from a more experienced writer, which could've made it into something far better than what it was. But it's not terrible. It's just a glimpse at the author 1 was, and the author I would become. So [present it to you, for your enjoyment. If you can use any of this stuff in your own RIFTS game, awesome. Let me know about it. Ifnot ... well, I hope you enjoy what you read, and it at least makes you smile. Warts, naws and all, I'm proud of this one. It told me that I could be a writer.

Spyre has discovered that his former servant Jericho has gone rogue. as many t:hings seeking to leave this hellish region of Phase City are quite dangerous. and that he could fully gains the powers of both if he bonded his soul with that at Judas.

With the return of the Demon Heart. informing them that the Demon Heart had returned to Jarnaka and could once more become the source of their enlightenment. The situation on Jarnaka at the current moment is very volatile and dangerous. : Only one ritt exists between Phase World and Jarnaka. in the center of one 01 the Blarnogl mud pits.

This arrangement suits the Kinsitata living nearby just fine. right nearby and to the east of Chorrdalis and the f0ogotu Peaks. ! plME 510 AL OORW Jarnaka is connected to Rifts Earth through three main dimensional gateways. The most commonly used rift between the two worlds can be lound on Earth right outside the free city of Tolkeen. well wrthin the ~oundaries of Chorrdalis. right in the heart of one of the worst ~Iums 01 the city. The final main ~ift leading from Jarnaka to Rifts Earth can be found in the New German Republic.

The Coalition is well aware of Jarnaka's existence. and Chi-Town and Iron Heart have begun negotiations with certain Ulithlogg assassins to perform similar tasks for their governments. Coalition intelligence was shocked and amused to learn that their Ulithlogg captive did not consider the Coalition. well outside the mountains and the city. TIle Jarnaka end of the dimensional doorway is located just inside a forest and an Ulithlogg village near Chorrdalis and the Mogotu Peaks. not too many creatures are aware of the world's existence . It was through this dimensional portal that the Blarnogl were originally banished to Hrogrythlor. One main gateway between the two worlds enters Hrogry1hlor in Smiorx. and has been for some time . Wandering Ulithlogg coming through the Tolkeen rift were originally considered to be dangerous. the new central Blarnogl city . This dimensional doorway is a commonly traveled trade route for creatures between both worlds. Only two rifts connect the two worlds. Lone Star has been contracting Ulithlogg assassins for about'a year or so . about ten miles trom the rift leading to the Rocky Mountains on Earth . Their missions f~r the Ulithlogg are different from those of the Coalition. have used the Ulithlogg to two main purposes . however The New German RepubliC. The first seNice the Ulithlogg provided for the NGR was to be a new supplier ~f mega-damage armor for the NGR military. and learned through interrogation that the Ulithlogg were relatively peaceful beings. certain creatures and individuals from Jarnaka have made their presence known on Rifts Earth. However. The secorid Ulithlogg service provided to the New German Republic was to serve as spies 10 gath~r . as the inhabitants of Jarnaka generally want very little to do with the new Blarnogl homeworld. lethal monsters .a Coalition convoy managed to capture a Ulithlogg assassin wearing Kubita Power Armor. then artificial rifts will probably be created arid exploratory panies sent to Jarnaka I REACTIO N S ROM E A R TH OWERS Due to Jarnaka's relative lack of interaction with other creatures and other worlds. however. No artificial Banwok rifts exist yet between the two worlds. I The New German Republic has also learned of Jarnaka . or the rest of the human race for lhat mal1er. None are used very otten. The Ulithlogg have modified their power armor su~s to work for human pilots and have begun selling them to the NGR at a high price. Due to the treacherous nature ot the Mogotu Peaks and the homicidally paranoid military patrols of Banwok on Hrogry1hlor. If anything ever happens to their perception of Jamaka that makes them perceive that world as a threat. but would only kill for ia price. upon learning of the Ulithlogg and their mercenary nature. Lone Star's information has been given to the other Coalitidn states as well. Using this information. less than a hundred miles from an Ulithlogg village. due to the firepower that the Ulithlogg invariably brought with them from Rifts Earth . in the middle of uninhabited grasslands. An extremely large rift opens up on Hrogrythlor from Jarnaka nearby the Banwok City of Gaaaj.specifically. The other rift opens up on Jarnaka near the Chorrdali city of Behdilna. to be real. which connects to a dimensional portal lying amidst the southernmost regions of the Mogotu Peaks. as mistrustful patrols of Chorrd~li warriors regularly patrol this area looking to attack intruders and foreigners as well .AS usual. of the Ulithlogg:and have also begun to contract the aliens for their deadly abilities of stealth. by chance . This is the dimensional road by which certain Ulithlogg and the Blarnogl have begun trading once more. This is much less frequently used by the people of Wormwood. The Coalition also learned at thiS time that many of the Ulithlogg were deadly and professional assassins. the ritts from Jarnaka to Wormwood lead to the same place most dimensional gateways appear on that world· Worldgate. there are three connecting rifts. This is mostly due to the tact that the Banwok only know of Jarnaka as the original homeworld of the Blarnogl. This particular rift enters Jarnaka close to a Kinsitata village in a grove of Korgata trees. using them to eliminate Coalition resistance leaders and dissidents without the killings being 1raced back to Lone Star. The Ulithlogg considered his whole experience to be a strange but interesting hallucination. This is because the Coalition State of Lone Star has been in contact with the Ulithlogg for a few years. The most frequently used portal between Jarnaka and Wormwood opens up on Jarnaka in one of the Blarnogl mud plains in the southern regions of Ihe planet. Between the Banwok planet of Hrogrythlor and Jarnaka. However. this rift is almost never used by creatures at either er)d of the rift The final rift between the two alien worlds can be found on Hrogrythlor just south bf Smiorx.

The !Jlithlogg call the Unholy by the name "The Wakened" . and do 00t really wish to learn about the creatures of Jarnaka. the Ulithlogg's ability to phase through solid mat1er and to iight like some of the best mercenaries in the known ~niverse have made their services invaluable to the NGR.

During the war for the Demon Heart. and any other creatures ~hich acknowledge their origin in Jarnaka are to be put to death instantly. While most of Melastirth's lieutenants consider their commander's actions to be an act of folly. usually only in exchange for food and trinkets catching the aliens' ~ancy. The Knights of the Order of the Temple consider both the Ulithlogg and the Chorrdali to ?e filthy foreigners. Hence. but the Unholy has upheld and confirmed Lord ~rikton's orders. worthy only of death. many Ulithlogg double agents are now being contracted by the New German Republic intelligence agencies.

I The Unholy and the Forces of Darkness do not really know much about Jarnaka. REACTIO FROM PHAS OR Naruni Enterprises is the only group ot intelligent beings from Phase World to have had ~xtensjve dealings with the inhabitants of Jarnaka. It was only when the corporation realized that the Ulithlogg and the Chorrdali had very I)ttle valuable items to trade for possible weaponry (except for their land . oHering much gold to ?ny being who can prove the existence of Jarnaka and a dimensional portal to the planet.

However. I Jarnaka has become something of a mylh and legend in the nation of New Dragcona in ~outh America. Mosl dragons who have heard of the legend of ~arnaka consider the story to be nothing but complete fiction. and is something that country's leader.and neither race was prepared to give that up) that their business agents gave up their sales plans. . The Knights of the Order of the Hospital and the Apoks ot Wormwood have taken to dealing with and trading with the Ulithlogg on a regular basis. and that is all that matters. Melastirth. To the WlithJogg. This matches Melastinh's vision of a world ruled and completely controlled by dragons. Naruni Enterprises also attempted to engage in possible business dealings wrth the Ulithlogg and the Chorrdali. Unfortunately. and much misinformation is flowing freely between both sides. Under orders from Lord Krikton.iniormation about the Gargoyle Empire.one who can never dream. Both Chorrdali barbarians and the Ulithlogg trade yveapons to the Hospitaliers. This has disturbed the Goblin Queen Salome to some extem. The Forces of Darkness do know (hat certain Chorrdali and Ulithlogg are helping the Kingdom of Light in their battles. but learned from captured Ulithlogg that the aliens will YV0rk for the highest bidder. This suits the Ulithlogg and the Chorrdali just fine. though. He has sent out explorers and mercenaries in earnest. selling them advanced weapons that nearly allowed the 81arnogl to emerge victorious in this armed conflict. and want nothing to do with the Jarnaka natives .

For the moment. there are a few forms of strange supernatural life on Jarnaka as well.

Both kinds of creatures have traveled between worlds to meet with each other. the Chorrdali. It is thought that Kunisat wandering through rit1s to the Rocky Mountains of Rins Earth are responsible for the "Bigfoot" legend. Naruni Enterprises also began to act as agents for Ulithlogg assassins.E. more normal creatures of Jarnaka are very similar. to those found on Rifts Earth. and have talked extensively about restoring Jarnaka back to health. the Kinsitata also have gained the capabili1y of becoming mega-damage beings.

The IUlithlogg distill these strange plants into liquids. because the~1 do not see a point to those actions. iThey maintain an organization similar to an Assassin's Guild that is fairly secretive. and wear their hair in long dread locklike braids that stretch down to their waist. The normal Ulithlogg cannot considered to be inteiligent by normal standards. they are instead a race comprised mostly of idiot savants. 1 The most unique aspect of the Ulithlogg is their drug culture. All their needs are found in the forests . they just !do them without comprehending what they are doing.

(Note: the drugs of Jarnaka are highly toxic and almost always lethal to non-natives of Jarnaka.the Hands of the Many. Use of Ulithlogg drugs by humans or other foreigners in Jarnaka requires a s1andard saving throw against poisons and toxins. While mo~t decisions are made by majority vote of all present Uli1hlogg Assassins present when a judgment about a potential assignment is to be made. Ulithlogg AssaSSins no longer found themselves accidentally battling against each other. and Ulrthlogg society was beginning to suffer due to these freelance artists. preferring instead to barter for equipment. and receives none of the hallucinatory effects of the drugs. The Hands are led by one of the most infamous Ulithlogg killers of all time. Ulrthlogg Assassins returning from a assignment are required to place mission logs in the central databank.) THE ASSASSIN'S G U ILD The Ulithlogg Assassins are organized in a formell group known as Psoddiahk . All Ulithlogg Assassins belong to the Hands of the Many. The price of this equipment is normally a mission for Naruni Enterprises. The Ulithlogg no longer bother to flaunt their seNices of death. they treat their relations with other creatures on impulses and whims. ' . With the formation of the Hands of the Many. This information allows the lIlithlogg to learn about potential targets. the numbers of the Ulithlogg Assassins began to grow steadily. with failure resulting in instant death. the Hands of the Many also has wound up being one of the most profitable businesses on Jarnaka. the Ulithlogg Assassins are readily accessible and willing to deal with their new allies. Should one of the members of the Hands of the Many betray the trust of the assassin's guild or attempt to go freelance. Blackfist Torbitak. The Hands of the Many never accepts cash payments for their contracts. They have lillie concept of danger. The Hands of the Many represents to the Ulithlogg an ordered way in which to conduct their arts of surveillance and murder. Although Blackfist did not intend this. as well as their strengths and weaknesses. the price for an assassination or spy mission usualJy ranges somewhere between the equivalent of two to twenty Coalition credits. and betrayal is equivalent to desecrating their art. they must contact the Hands of the Many on their own. He originally organized the Hands when he recognized that the few UlithloQg assassins were often working at cross purposes.an attack by other creatures upon an Ulithlogg is considered 10 be the equivalent of a bad drug experience. Even if the Ulithlogg Assassins are contacted. and most Ulithlogg feign ignorance if asked about the assassin's guild. The lIlithlogg like to be sure that a potential mission does nqt interfere with an already contracted mission unless there is extremely good reason or profit involved. If not. either . Most potential clients contract the Ulithlogg through established contacts. as the networ'K of killers remains secretive.with other mtelligent creatures tends to be a bit bizarre. as well as data about the enemies of these fac1ions. the Hands of the Many usually is able to acquire nearly any form of necessary equipment imaginable from Naruni Enterprises. The Hands of the Many also acquired armor and weapons for assassins that otherwise might prove difficult 10 obtain on short notice. Most of the information about other worlds and alien species of creatures is held by the Hands of the Many. The Hands of the Many seNes several purposes. some jobs are summarily turned down anyway. A successful save means the user is violently ill for 24-72 hours. such as Naruni Enterprises or the Coalition. and ti1eir contracting with other worlds became larger and more consistent. executed by the top Lllithlogg Assassins of the Hands of the Many_ Blackfist Torbilak is the undisputed leader of !he Hands of the Many. Besides obtaining priority orders from the Ulithlogg Tinkers of the Fortunado Armories. so that the information learned can potentially be used by other lIlithlogg Assassins at a later time. The primary purpose is to be a central contracting agency for Ulithlogg Assassins. Blackfist's word is always final. though. Depending on a mission. Once contracted. These databanks hold much intelligence about the New German Republic and the Coalition. The other main purpose of the Hands of the Many is to provide a source of supplies and information tor Ulithlogg Assassins. as their reputation now has already generaled more business than they can handle. Blackfist's standing orders are that such assassins have joined the Wakened and ar~ to be hunted and terminated with extreme prejudice. Since the Ulithlogg do not believe sucm creatures are real anyway.

The vacated position of Vernalik is filled through new challengers in the death matches. Specific schematics usually have to be laid out for ihe Ulithlogg Tinkers as well.
