This is one of the set designs that I illustrated for Rifts Northern Gun (NG1) published by Palladiumbooks. It was debuted in RIFTS NG Prototype and will be released in NG1.
Featured is an interior shot of Downtown Northern Gun, the mega-corp city in Ishpheming, Rifts Earth. The majority of the downtown area i s the market District devoted to NG showroom stores, shopping plazas, sales and entertainment. The sprawling downtown area is all glitz, glamour and lights. For mercenaries and adventurers, it is rather like Disneyland or the Las Vegas strip of pre-Rifts Earth. Downtown has wide streets that can accommodate giant robots, tanks and massive vehicles of all kinds. There are a lot of chrome, neon signs, spotlights and spectacle for all to see. Giant robots are on display in outdoor plazas for sale, while others walk down designated paths or are stationed on select street corners, and piloted by NG Defenders to provide city defense and to help enforce the law. Ti presence, especially iconic bots or new introductions, as well as gladiatorial robots are placed on display to provide tourists with another sight to see, a photo op, and considerable peace of mind that the city is safe and well protected. And it is. Police clad in stylish Enforcer power armor and Dog boys can be seen walking the streets, helping citizens and visitors, throughout the city, with their greatest presence in the expansive downtown area.
The NG Grizzly and NG Grizzly-B variant can be seen in this shot with hovertrain and the hovertrain terminal in the background. In the far background is part of the Robot dome where competitive giant robot gladiatorial combat events occur. All sorts of Dimensional Beings (D-Bees) among the human populace can be seen enjoying and or conducting their various affairs in the mega city.
