Would a charracter with an O-P promethian phase feild be able to walk through a rift? and how would being out of phase affect the rifting process.

I thought it would be that simple but my G.M. is a little leary.

They ought to come out rotated 180 degrees along the fourth-dimensional axis, meaning they'd wind up on the other side left-right reversed.

Why? 'Cause it'd be funny. :D

Phase space is NOT the fourth dimension.

and as the origional poster said: go in out of phase, come out out of phase.

good question and as Phase World GM one I've debated myself.

despite being "removed from reality" a person with Phase powers or an OP Field, can still see the world around them. They don't sink thru the floor (kinda like the Psi-Ghost, although those dudes can sink down to their noses).

the picture of that Wulfen phasing through the wall shows him as visible, just walking thru the wall, while some of the Phase Technology specifically says you turn invisible (it's probably one of those "artwork ain't canon" things though).

also, some starships with the OP field or a Phase Field can "move very quickly" when you combine them with a thruster of some type, so in theory a guy in an EBA suit IN SPACE, along with a OP Phase Field and a gravity pack, should be able to teleport around (probably close to the same distance as the ship).

anyway, back to your specific question: I'd say the guy using Phase Powers or a Phase Field, should be able to move around the 3D world just like normal, they just wouldn't be noticed -- that's to keep things as close as possible, without having to invent a whole bunch of crap...er...rules that can be endlessly debated by the local rules lawyer in the group. I see it as a tech version of Astral Coexistence.

so a Promethean could step out of phase, teleport through a portal and gateland or thru a Rift, just like he was doing it like a normal human and get the job done.

YMMV.
