What OCC do you want in the Main Cast?

What RCC do you want to see in it?

That's why it is called "the present".
Cast members absolutely have to include:

A Glitterboy; this is one of the top things that stand out the most in Rifts world. I wouldn't put more than 1 in the movie unless it had scenes in Canada for whatever reason, perhaps focusing on CS vs FQ *shrug*

A CSRPA Elite, particularly in a SAMAS; The most prominent icon of the entire CS IMHO, second only to the Death's Head symbol. In the movie there would be lots of these, but only 1 or 2 in the main cast

A Line Walker; Ley Lines are gonna be a big part of the effects in this movie. We gotta have a few of these running around/along them

A Shifter; Come on... you KNOW you want to see someone open a Rift in this movie :twisted:

A Dog Boy; Whether alone or in a pack, we gotta see them. When their scene comes in, start playing "Who let the Dogs Out?" :D

A Juicer; Or better yet, a few Juicers. Ever since the Matrix came out, every Rifts player I know uses the scene of the agent dodging full clips from Neo's guns as an example of how fast a Juicer can be. I still do to this day. Just one request. Have 1 Juicer go through Last Call, preferably a really young looking one, like maybe in his early 20's, just to drive home how short lived they really can be. Have an older one comment on how he'd only been juiced for a couple years and rant a moment about how the days just seem to get shorter every day. Then have him turn and blow some guy away just to "feel the rush" and get back in a good mood.

A Cyber-Knight; Just to add a bit of nobility to the whole thing. That and to see a Psi-Sword in action :D

A Dragon; Just a quick reminder that with this world you're really playing with power. Nuff said.

That's all i can think of off the top of my head. As to who the good guys and bad guys are in this list, I can only say, yes... they are. :twisted:

Comment: Yeah yeah yeah just give me my damn XP already :)
CS side - Samas/RPA Elite for sure adn dog boys

Independants - Juicer, Any kind of traditional spellcaster (line walker or shifter for instance), GLitterboy (it is a Rifts ICON afterall), Mind Melter or Burster and a dragon.

Cyber-Knight screams "StarWars" too much, I'd have one in a secondary role if at all in the movie.

I would do this.

Crazy
Super Psionic (Any type)
Magic User (Probably Lay Line Walker)
Dragon
Glitter Boy
Ex-CS of some type for main. Sort of a reforming Roshak (Watchmen) type character.

I would like to see a cyber knight, but they do scream Star Wars too much. A dragon speaks to the fantasy aspect of the game.

Just a couple quick additions to the list, but have them be walk-ons rather than main cast;

A Splugorth Slaver, complete with barge and Blind Warrior Women. The true icon of Rifts from the original cover!

A Shemarrian! That would be just too hot!

An Atlantean, preferably either a T-Man, a Sunaj, or both, but pretty much any would work.

A Techno-Wizard. Nothing really blends the science and magic of the Rifts world like these guys.

And finally, let's see a cameo appearance from Archie!

A Burster, a Glitter Boy Pilot, a CS SAMAS RPA, a Dog Pack led by a Psi-Stalker (perhaps having a scene where you see him "feeding"), Juicer, 'Borg, CS Grunt or Military Specialist, a Techno-Wizard, a Shifter, and Operator.

I think the film should be based on machinations of doom. So those OCCS

Comment: What happened in here last night? It smells of cheap booze and expensive regret...
You'd pretty much have to have every OCC that can't be lumped in with others that appear in the main book at least make appearances in the movie. The CS OCCs are distinguishable only by training, so you could have a dozen dead boys standing in a line and not really tell what their MOS was. A lot of the psychics and magic OCCs can be treated similarly ("Oh, that's a mage/psychic). The only real distinguishing classes from these are Techno-Wizards, Dog Boys and Bursters.

Juicers, Borgs, Cyber-Knights, Glitter Boys, Crazies and the rest all need individual treatment, however small.

Rouge Scholar (main hero)
Ley Line Walker (helps the scholar overcome the forces of evil)
Shifter (the guy enslaving a town with demonic helpers)
Full Conversion Cyborg Merc (works for the Shifter but switches sides when the Scholar helps him find some of his sense of humanity again)
and a Vagabond (who saves the day and distributes candy bars to the heroes at the end of the film.)

why has no-one mentioned a single D-Bee other than a dragon? (Okay a Splurgoth Slaver got an honerable mention)
Anyway, aren't the D-Bees the entire point of Rifts Earth? You might think the Glitterboy is the icon or whatever but without the D-Bees, Rifts Earth is just Earth.

Um, probably because the topic is Which OCC do you want in a main cast? Not Race or RCC even (even though RCC's are almost the same as OCC's). I think we should start a new topic for Race/RCC's.

The main characters should be ARCHIE (voiced by Kevin Spacey) and Hagan Lonovich (played by Bruce Willis).

Nice choices, though I think Bruce Willis is a little old for the part of Hagan now.

Karl Urban might be a good choice for Hagan. He strikes me as the type that can pull of the selfishly psychotic megalomaniac.

RCC: Wolfen! My favorite race in th epalladium universe.

OCC: As THE main character, I think either a cyberknight or a headhunter would probably work best. But having a crazy for comic relief, juicer for cool factor, and lots of mages and psychics for the special effects.
