I find myself wondering, what happened to Systems Failure?
Splicers has expansions/source books and SF doesn't, even though I consider SF to be a much better game.
Is there any information on why there isn't more exploration into this game setting?

it was always meant as a one off to exploit some of the Y2K hype.

but there is a fair amount of Rifter material for Systems Failure. Rifters 8, 12, 19, 26, and 38 all had articles.

Well, I suppose I should have guessed as much. Thanks for the recommendations, I'll check them out!

What sort of things do you see as missing from the game setting? I've enjoyed SF as a stand alone, and used a good bit in other games from time to time.

Comment: Palladium Books Canon is set solely by Kevin Siembieda, either in person, or by his approval of published material.

Besides what others mentioned there is another bigger reason why we never got anything on higher teir bugs, or psionics, or any of that stuff...
1) no one wrote it.
and more importantly
2) the first book didn't really sell all that well.

I like the book. I have used the bugs in various games (a few of them are just the thing to ruin your NEMA peoples 2098 Christmas...)
But with out real interest in the line, and with out authors submitting material... well it's going to stay Rifters and homebrew.
