With a real quick turnaround, there wasn't much chance to do that much for "The Deep Frontier" by The Rifter #70
By Palladium Books. An extensive vehicle & colony creation article, which I must admit had nothing like what I just drew for it in it! Well, save the description of domed underwater colonies.
I actually went through Rifts: New Navy as well, looking to see if anyone had done something like this - but no! No mecha-mermaids. Of course, I show it to Wayne, the editor, and he assumes it's a Cybernetic lower body prosthesis. My idea was that it was a power armor suit for a mermaid! Because.. you know.. Rifts! (The bubble helm is actually for storing water that had been filtered
in case she has to go through a potentially toxic environment.) Another person who'd seen it without the fish & whale, as it appears in the book (yeah, to sell this better, I went back and added details.) Thought it was happening in space! I guess everyone had a different interpretation. ^_^
