Machinations Of Doom is the first original graphic novel written and drawn by Ramón Pérez and set in the world of RIFTS®. Collected in 2007 this edition was put together from new high-res scans of the original artwork along with brand new art showcasing all the characters, along with re-lettered pages for clearer continuity and clarity.

Enjoy this fun adventure, a 3.5/5 on Good Reads, and see the culmination of Ramón Pérez’ time at not only at Palladium Books® but in RPG illustration as well.


A sketch (as either artists choice or as a custom request) can be added to this edition of the book. Inked art can either be done in book, or as a tip-in-plate – which is done on a loose piece of 9 x 12 in. archival bristol. If chosen, please allow 6-8 weeks for processing, as all sketches are put in a queue and drawn by the artist outside their normal work schedule.

While each book comes signed, you can add an original Ink sketch by writer and artist Ramón Pérez to your book purchase.
