One game system – every genre – countless worlds – endless adventure

With less than two weeks till Christmas it is crunch time for us, processing, packing and shipping Christmas Surprise Packages as fast they come in. That and getting The Rifter® #79 (almost done) and Rifts® Sovietski (another fantastic World Book) to the printer and into your hands! We are working away at a feverish pace.

Our thanks to all of you who have been ordering Christmas Surprise Packages and taking advantage of our holiday sales. NOTE: If you need a Surprise Package in time for Christmas, you MUST place your orders this week and over the weekend. And do not use Media Mail. It must ship by UPS or Priority Mail to have any hope of getting to its destination by Saturday, December 23! Read on for details.

UPDATE: Christmas Surprise Package – LAST 5 days to order in time for Christmas – do not miss out

If you NEED a Christmas Surprise Package in time for Christmas, please order today and tomorrow. Orders placed this weekend should reach most locations in the contiguous United States by Christmas, but we can no longer absolutely guarantee it. AND you must use UPS or Priority Mail. Media Mail will NOT arrive in time for Christmas. Order TODAY if you can. This weekend at the latest.

If you live west of the Mississippi and place your order via UPS or Priority Mail by December 14 you should get it in time for Christmas! Orders placed as late as December 17 still have a good chance of arriving in time, but no guarantee. Note: You must use UPS or Priority Mail.

If you live east of the Mississippi and place your order by December 17, you should get it in time for Christmas. Sooner is better. Orders placed on Monday, December 18, have an excellent likelihood of arriving in time, but no guarantee. Note: You must use UPS or Priority Mail.

December 18 if shipping via 3-Day UPS within the contiguous USA.

December 20, if shipping via 2-Day UPS within the contiguous USA.

December 21, if shipping via NEXT DAY service (any) within the contiguous USA.

If you do not need the Surprise Package for Christmas, you can order right up to Christmas Eve. (And here’s a secret, I almost always extend the Surprise Package offer for another couple of weeks. That too has become something of a tradition.)

For orders going out of country, such as to Canada and overseas, we can NOT guarantee delivery in time for Christmas. We’ve had very good luck in the past, but no guaranteed delivery from this point forward.

What is a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package? It’s a fun bargain for you, and it’s our way of saying thank you to Palladium fans around the world. Fill holes in your collection, try new games and world settings, get gifts for your gaming pals, and if you want, we’ll sign every book.

It is usually $90-$95 worth of Palladium RPG books, often more! for only $45 plus shipping and handling. And because you guys and gals mean so much to us, I often pack in more than $96 worth of product (sometimes a lot more). Oh, and each book will be signed by me (Kevin Siembieda) and available Palladium staff and freelancers if you request it. It is our way of saying thanks to all of you for your support and kindness.

  • Palladium Surprise Packages make the perfect holiday gifts for the gamers in your life – Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or the Winter Solstice, or you’re looking for a gift for a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or any special occasion that falls between now and February, a Surprise Package may be the ideal way to go. You get a ton of stuff on the cheap, you can get a bunch of autographs, and you look like you spent a fortune.
  • Fill holes in your own collection.
  • Try new game settings (Rifts®, Robotech®, Palladium Fantasy®, Heroes Unlimited™, Splicers®, Nightbane®, Dead Reign®, Beyond the Supernatural™, Ninjas & Superspies™, After the Bomb®, and all the rest).
  • Get cool stuff (miniatures, bookmarks, maps, greeting cards, etc.).
  • Get autographs from the Palladium crew and available freelancers.
  • Be surprised when the package arrives.
  • All items selected and comments read by Santa Kevin, himself. Ho, ho, ho!

The best deal of the holidays! You could pay $50 for just a single core rule book, but for $45 plus shipping, you can get 4-6 books in a Surprise Package, depending on their retail value. Or you can get that core rule book and 2-4 sourcebooks. And we will sign the books if you request it. How do you beat that? It is the best deal in gaming! Our way of giving back to the fans and making the holidays special for you.

Surprise Package mitigates overseas shipping costs – take advantage of this while you can

The low cost of the Surprise Package mitigates the cost of shipping. It is, in effect, the equivalent of getting the books you want at retail, plus autographs, and paying the equivalent of only $5-$20 for overseas shipping!

How can that be? Well, if you factor in that you are getting say, $100 in product, but only paying $45 for them, and shipping is, say $60 or $70, that’s $105 or $115 total – which is like $5-$15 in shipping for $100+ worth of product. And I always load up foreign Surprise Packages, so make sure you send a long Wish List! Of course, the purchaser is responsible for any Customs fees, taxes and other fees, but since we are selling you a $45 Surprise Package (not $100+ in books) you should only pay on a $45 purchase.

MANY overseas customers take advantage of the Surprise Packages for this reason! And it is likely the ONLY way for you to get autographs. Give it a try, we don’t think you will be disappointed. This is the time for our friends and fans overseas to load up on the Palladium products they have been wanting! OR take advantage of the Digital Christmas Surprise Package to get PDF titles of your favorite games and sourcebooks. Enjoy.

Please note that Palladium Books has NO control over the cost of shipping/postage, nor the brokerage fees, Customs charges or any other related fees charged by other countries. Within the USA, Media Mail is the least expensive method of shipping, but also the least reliable and slowest. To our Canadian customers, we have no idea why it costs so much to mail books and product to you. So much for NAFTA making things easier. Game on.
