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

This has been a fun, busy and productive week. The Rifter® #78 has been sent to the printer, and I have started my work on Rifts® Sovietski. Other than that, we have been pulling and signing stacks of books for Christmas Surprise Packages. The initial response to the offer has been fast and strong. It’s nice to see so many people excited about it and ordering their Surprise Package right away. Among them are gamers living outside the USA who are wisely purchasing the Grab Bags to circumvent the high cost of shipping, as well as a number of new people. I always suggest people who have never gotten a Surprise Package to order one early, because often that person is so pleased with what he gets, he’ll want to get another one or two before Christmas. We’ve already had one individual do just that, and he only received his first Surprise Package mid-week! Processing Surprise Packages is always a pleasure for us, because we love putting smiles on the faces of so many people around the world.

UPDATE: Christmas Surprise Packages now shipping

People are jumping on ordering their Surprise Packages this year. Awesome, we’ll process and ship them out as fast as we can, so keep them coming and beat the holiday rush.

If we can help in a small way, please let us. This year the United States and many of our neighbors have experienced unprecedented disaster and loss. Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fire, and earthquakes have unleashed devastation upon millions of people. Many of these catastrophic events are recent, so for a lot of you who may have suffered through them firsthand, you are probably still dealing with more immediate and important matters of recovery than worrying about replacing game books. But if you are in that mindset, or to those of you who have gaming friends or family who have lost their beloved game books through such tragedy, please let me know in the comment section when you order a Christmas Surprise Package, include a big Wish List of old book titles lost, and I will try to load up that Surprise Package. And as always, we are happy to sign books or personalize them to a specific person (just be clear on who that person is). I know it’s not much, but it is something. All of us at Palladium are glad to help you find a little joy as you try to rebuild and find your way back to normalcy. I’m pleased to remind people that the Christmas Surprise Packages are not just for Christmas. They are a fantastic way to replace parts of that damaged or destroyed collection and on the cheap. We are happy to bring a little gaming sunshine back in someone’s life. To those of you who have endured such emotional loss and continuing travails, please stay positive and hopeful, and know you are in our thoughts and prayers. We are a community. You are part of the Palladium family, so I’m happy to help in this smallest of ways if I can.

On a different front, please make sure Rifts® for Savage Worlds players know about the Christmas Surprise Package offer. Many of these gamers are new to the Rifts® world setting and don’t know about all the World Books and source material available for Rifts®. And they certainly don’t know anything about the Surprise Package offer. Please let your Savage Worlds Rifts® friends know about the Grab Bags so they can expand their knowledge and gaming experience across the Megaverse.

As always, the Surprise Package offer is an excellent way to introduce any gamer to the Palladium Megaverse®, replace battle worn books, try new worlds and build upon your collection. For the price of what most core rule books cost, you can get one Surprise Package ($45 plus shipping and handling) with 3-6 different sourcebooks (depending on the value of each book). It’s impossible to beat that kind of deal. And if you want autographs, we’ll sign each book.

What is a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package? $90-$100 worth of Palladium Books products for only $45 plus shipping and handling.

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

I’m going to keep this Weekly Update short. A few unexpected business matters drew our time away from work on books, but we are back at it full force. Wayne and I are finally putting the wraps on The Rifter® #78, I’ve been lining up the sequence of books to finish next, as well as the artists, writers and editors to help get them done. As for myself, I am working away to get books into your hands right now as quickly as we can. We have also been supporting a number of conventions and charity events, and there are a couple of Kickstarter campaigns from a couple of cool dudes you might want to look into.

The main news of this week is the 2017 Christmas Surprise Package offer starts now! That’s right, you can order your Christmas Surprise Package this weekend and be gaming with new material by next weekend!

What is a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package?

It’s a bargain and fun for you, and it’s our way of saying thank you to our loyal fans, by delivering a little Christmas cheer and putting smiles on the faces of some big kids around the world. It is also a great way for you to get presents for your gaming pals, fill holes in your collection or try new games and settings.

$90-$100 worth of Palladium Books products for only $45 plus shipping and handling. You are guaranteed to get an absolute minimum of ninety dollars ($90) retail value in your Surprise Package. Often you get $92-$95 (for most). Sometimes more! Santa Kevin likes to make gamers squeal with delight and often packs in $95-$100 worth of goodies into many Surprise Packages.

It’s a surprise package because you never know exactly what you’re going to get or who will sign your books. We try to include many of the items on your “wish list,” but we will surprise you with stuff you are not expecting. Things like a special print(s), or a negative from an actual book, or issues of The Rifter®, or a Palladium RPG or sourcebook(s), special edition comic book, or other items that we think you might enjoy. Plus you can ask for unusual items, or special gold editions, art prints, and maybe even some original art. All items are “hand-picked” by Kevin Siembieda from your “wish lists.” ALL with autographs if you request them. For many of you, this is the only way to get autographs from Kevin and available Palladium staff members, artists and writers! And you can order right now!

Your “Wish List” – The Palladium Surprise Packages are designed to simulate the fun, joy and surprise of the Christmas Season of Giving. To do this, you submit a list of 10-15 Palladium products (or more) that you KNOW are in stock FOR EACH Surprise Package you order. This list of 10-15 items for EACH Grab Bag is critical, because you will not know which items you’ll be getting. That makes it just like a Christmas gift because it’s a surprise! Plus, Santa Kevin, who personally hand-picks every item for every Grab Bag, may toss in something extra like a limited edition print or T-shirt, or issue of The Rifter®, or something else he thinks you’ll enjoy.

You can order right now thru December 24, 2017. Ordering now gives you ample time to try out a Surprise Package if you are new to them, and you avoid the holiday rush. We always try to make each one truly special, as the thousands of you who have ordered in the past know well.

If you have never ordered a Surprise Package before, give it a try early, because you’ll be blown away and probably want to order a few more! It happens all the time.

Christmas Surprise Packages are not just for Christmas. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or the Winter Solstice, or you’re looking for a gift for a birthday, anniversary, graduation, 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.

To those of you outside the USA, the X-Mas Surprise package is a way to get books and circumvent the extremely high cost of shipping from the US. Since you are getting $90-$100 worth of product and only paying $45 plus a small handling charge, shipping via Priority Mail International (required for packages weighing more than four pounds) to most locations in Europe, Canada and many other countries should be around $50-$60 US dollars. HOWEVER, because the cost of the product is so low, that’s the equivalent of paying retail for the products and $0-$30 for shipping. A very good deal. Plus you get autographs if you want them! X-Mas Surprise Packages are the way to go for those of you outside the USA. Please take advantage of it to get all those products you’ve wished you could get except the shipping was too prohibitive. We feel your pain. Game on!

Please tell others

Please spread the word about the Christmas Surprise Package offer to gamers everywhere – especially to Rifts® Savage Worlds players and other people new to Palladium’s many game worlds.

Introducing gamers to Palladium settings with a Surprise Package is a great opportunity. For the price of what most core rule books cost, you can get one Surprise Package ($45 plus shipping and handling) with 3-6 different sourcebooks (depending on the value of each book). It’s hard to beat that kind of deal.
