Apparently in the latest Rifter, that question has been answered.

It was pretty specific in saying that the Super volcano erupted on the 23rd of December 2098 at 0915hr (I don't have my book here, but it is something to that effect)

lol that's it though? No discription of what happened? Just that it "Did"?

That's funny.

I was reading though my RUE last night and if you read between the lines it sort of alludes to "something" Happening. Much of the west is covered in a layer of earth, that "Tall buildings stick up out of" That's something likew 60 feet deep? 60 feet of earth doesn't just grow up around buildings. It came from some where.

I think no known record existed on the eruption, or have not been discovered yet.

It would have been one heck of an eruption! There would have been a lot of flattened and burned forest out that way.

I think the estimate is about a hundred miles in diameter for the red zone.... the zone of immediate danger.

I can't remember off the top of my head for that zone. But I think you are close.

Apparently at full eruption, the area of effect would touch even Mexico, well, the top part of it. It is huge!

I remember from the program on Discovery channel they said the ring of destruction because of the blast would be unbelievably large! Based on the projections made on the other eruptions.

yupe. The crater itself is already 100 mile wide, how big would the red zone be? Especially when you compare the red zone of a normal volcano to its own red zone.....

try here
no one has ever seen on of them blow, so there is no way of knowing what will happen.

Nice website!! It has a lot of info all in one page.

Of course none of us has seen one since our forefathers began the agricultural revolution. If not, most of us would never have existed.... seriously!

well, the west was coming under 6+ feet of ash according to CE, plus in seismic events like volcanic eruptions, the seismic shocks can cause liqification of the ground, turning normally solid ground into quicksand.

then add in massive mudslides caused by the heavy rains that would occur with all that ash in the air to seed the clouds, and 300 years of sedimentary depositation.

Rifts-wise it doesn't explain what exactly happened as people don't know.

However, it is covered more-indepth in Chaos Earth (and rightfully so).

6ft of ash is very little...... for a supervolcano and especially for those in the red zone.

Actually I thought the 6 feet of ash was further east of the red zone.

Keep notes on that sort of thing Darkmax. Put them in a notebook. And then keep the notebook near your computer. That would help! :)

You have the perfect memory enhancer right from that area of the world. Can you use Ginseng? Or are you allergic to it?

Comment: "Death is only the beginning."
Hey I live in Montana only about fifty miles from Yellowstone and our GM, my uncle, used it in one of our campaigns where we played as us and had been chosen by a dimensional traveler and taken to Rifts Earth before Yellowstone erupted. He has always had plans for us to go to Yellowstone which has become a super nexus and a sacred gathering place for the Native Americans of the region. I'm trying to get him to write up his ideas so he can send them to PB.
