Desert Of Zin

The occasional blog of Alistair Bain – Writer, Husband, Father and Chief Techno-Arcanologist at the Institute of Giant Robots, Spaceships and Wizards. None of these positions pay well.

Aww bless…

I’m currently re-reading my Rifts RPG Collectors Edition book (what can I say? I like reading role-playing game source material) and a few sections at the beginning always cheers me up.

On the first page it says:

The fictional world of Rifts is quite violent and deadly. It is an exotic realm where magic is as real as technology, and demonic creatures plague mankind.
Some parents may find the violence and supernatural elements of the game inappropriate for young readers/players. We suggest parental discretion.
Note that none of us at Palladium Books condone nor encourage the occult, the practice of magic, the use of drugs or violence.

That’s nice.

There’s also a couple of lines a few pages later in the Glossary of Role-Playing Game Terms. The particular term is Death:

Players should take a character’s death calmly. Remember, it’s ONLY a game.

Aww, that’s nice of them to be looking out for my well-being like that. Bless.
