Okay, I'm planning on incoporating creatures, characters, technology, and other factors from various media, such as Video games, Role-playing games, table top war games, and other sources.
Now some of these can take a long time to explain, and pretty dang hard to describe. But it be easier if you had the books that detail them.
So in this thread, I'll list the books where you can find info on various subjects, such as weapons and technology, monsters, and even some Org Villians!
Note: Most of these books can be bought at your local comic and hobby stores. As for strategy guides, you can buy them where games are sold, such as Gamestop.
Note: If you can't find the listed books, then you'll have to order them online.
(Note: Rifts has a compelling setting and great art, so people mostly buy the books just for the story)

And of course list the books that go with them.2/9/2011 #3
Whoops. Thought you meant video games period. My mistake.2/10/2011 #4
Hey C4? Have you looked at the list?2/24/2011 #5
Hey guys, I just updated the list. Added some Rift Books, and CthulhuTech.
CthulhuTech is very cool, and I have plans to incorporate it into Ultima.
Plus it's features tons of mecha and monsters, which the Org both uses. The Society also use these mechs as well.
Plus some Cults who have teemed up with the Org, and the powerful Migou race, which the Org(with the help of the Irkens) plans to enslave.9/14/2011 #6
