Quick Update – August 2, 2012

Been pounding out Rifts® Black Market pages. Down to the last 32 pages!

Everything is laid out and proofread up to page 160. Covers included.

I finished the vehicles and power armor yesterday (everyone loves the Shadow Boy™, and the Tumbler) and I’m working on animal robots right now. Hey, they’re cooler than you think. After that, all that is left is the small Techno-Wizard section highlighting some of the unusual items the Immaterial Hand uses and sells in its Black Market operations. Cool.

Here are a few things to whet your appetite. More tomorrow. The official Rifts® Black Market Sneak Preview will be posted on DriveThru over the weekend. Maybe as soon as Friday evening!

The Five Black Market Factions
Bandito Arms
The Chicago Network
The Immaterial Hand
El Oculta
Le Marche Noir

Black Market Specialist O.C.C.s
ANY O.C.C. and R.C.C. can become a Black Marketeer, but even they have some specialists.
Black Market Banker
Case Man
Con Artist
Information Broker
Rift Runner

I'm glad everyone is enjoying these "daily" Murmurs from the Megaverse. I'll try to keep doing them even if it's just something brief. I have to keep it short today. I have to leave for a dentist appointment in a ten minutes. When I get back I have to write the Weekly Update and I have a darn book to finish! :wink: Check out the Weekly Update later this evening for more goings-on and have a nice day.
