Hey all,

Is there a god of the undead in the Palladium pantheon? I'm looking for something that is roughly equivalent to Orcus from the list of AD&D demon lords. I have an idea for a game that revolves around a god of this kind, and if there is something that already exists in one of the Palladium books, I would prefer to use that.

Thanks in advance,
Captain Nibbz

Vampire Intelligences (Rifts WB1, IINM they are also in a PF book), Rifts WB4 Africa might have something useful (4 Horseman, possibly the Egyptian pantheon). Some other World/Dimension Books might also have something useful in this regard it depends if some of the pantheons get explored in detail (beyond PotM).

Dragons & Gods (PF2E, but compatible with Rifts):
Vald-Tegor, Lord of the Undead (pg128-30)
Utu, Lord of the Dead (pg125-6)
Kala (the Deity)
Anubis, Lord of the Dead (pg154-6)

Probably more that are more apparent by more than just a quick skim. You might also want to check out Pantheons of the Megaverse (for Rifts), they might have a few more. D&G has rules for creating Alien Intelligences, and PotM has rules for creating Gods (and sub types)

Rifts WB 12 Psyscape, pg. 22 has Nxla the Harvester of souls. I have always thought that he would be good in a BTS game.

These are some pretty good suggestions. I like the idea of using Anubis for this. Could be fun to roll up some of the stuff that was going on over in Egypt at the time period of the campaign I'm thinking of (1920's). Could be fun to have the players do a full on raid on an Egyptian tomb similar to something like King Tut (who was discovered in 1922).

This is absolutely perfect for what I need. I have an idea of combining the figure of Anubis as of one of the Harvesters serving Nxla as an immortal (thus the legends of his god status). This gives me a lot to think about. I have the feeling that this new campaign idea that I'm forming is going to be . . . interesting to say the least.

Thanks for all the help :D
