Disadvatages are like -10% science, an insanity, - a number from a stat, or -15 ISP

Comment: The silent thief of Rozrehxeson.
I've never seen disadvantages per se, except perhaps in Rifts: Ultimate Edition in the section for low attributes. There are some tables for advantages, the one I'm most familiar with is in Rifts: Lone Star in the section on Mutant Humans. I've also seen similar tables in Robotech: Shadow Chronicles and the Nightbane Survival Guide.

With out a more detailed focus for the question it is hard to give you answers. Are you wanting race, rcc, occ/pcc related modifiers? Educational modifiers? Equipment modifiers? Situational modifiers? Modifiers due to aging, illness, or impairment?

There are only a couple official options. In essence, by choosing a Physical skill over another option, you're trading knowledge for a stat bonus. Some of the morphus options from Nightbane include both advantages and disadvantages if I remember correctly.

That said, the game is what you make of it. If you decide a player can gain a stat bonus, extra skills, or a superhuman power by taking on an insanity for his or her character, who's going to argue with you?

Comment: Rifts is a framework, if you don't like part of it don't use it.

Please tell me you aren't pulling out the old school D&D Deck of Many things for Rifts? Really? While part of me is like 'Kick Ass that is Awesome' other parts of me are screaming 'Monty Hall' run away!

i have used it in games for about a year now.. my player seem cool with it.. i have created several chars with deck mods, the deck of cards im using ( of course that part is trademarked :P) is the cardsd from the fifth age of dragonlance rpg that one played with cards. also with the deck one can cancel out a negative by sacrificng a positive card.. trading 2 positive cards will change a negative, and 3 positive cards traded to pick ur own abilitiy. still working on the trade ins of cards.. might be a bit much.. but only time will tell

While this type of deck can totally break a D&D game, it may not break Rifts due to the nature of how Rifts is so wide open.

Interesting, would love a report on how much it effected your game.

i havent been able to play too much.. but on character generation it works nicely i figure. the PCs were eager to pick cards... .. hmm what more can i say? for instance i sent a samas against them and they still ran.. nothing game breaking.. which i love rifts for being so wide open. some cards allow for the drawing of extra card.. like every 9 and dragon cards.. with the 9 and 10 of dragons drawing 2 extra cards. the fifth age cards are neat cause they have 9 suits of 9 cards per suit except dragons which are 10.. and im missing some cards..maybe aboput 5 or so :) i have a couple negative slots open and cant think of any to put in there.
hmm....
