A proper name for my alternate Rifts setting/timeline finally popped into my head the other day. Since I'm setting my Great Cataclysm in 2012 and the game world is dated at 100 years Post-Apocalypse, that makes the default game year 2112. And so I hereby dub my take on Rifts as Rifts:2112. Although it wasn't intentional, and I'm not exactly a die-hard Rush fan, the musical reference is a nice touch. And although the parallels between the Priests of the song and the repressive, totalitarian Coalition have me thinking that I've already found my homage, I guess should also include some kind of a Temple of Syrinx somewhere out there in the world as a more overt tip o' the hat. Oh, and a wandering guitar player with mystical powers...
