A lot of things are in motion and looking very promising. We placed the order for the two decks of Rifts® poker cards. The proof samples of both decks came in and look absolutely fantastic. One person who saw them said she was ordering 10 decks as gifts. Pre-orders for the Rifts® Poker Decks are coming in at a nice pace. Wayne has updated the store description to show the box they come in when you order directly from us, as well as images of all the cards. We will have 120 of each deck at Gen Con, available on a first come, first served basis, with more on the way to fulfill all requests. Heck, we already have some people inquiring about future Rifts® poker decks. Awesome. Both decks are very fun products.

Both the new, larger, Robotech® The Masters Saga™ Sourcebook in the 8½ x 11 format and The Rifter® #74 arrived at the Palladium warehouse yesterday (Thursday, July 28). Pre-orders and subscriber copies are shipping out today. Some went out yesterday. The Raw Preview Editions of Rifts® Sovietski™ and Secrets of the Atlanteans™ also arrived today. There has also been a lot of discussion about Robotech® RPG Tactics™ (RRT) and all the things we will be doing for it in the weeks ahead.

As you might expect, much of our focus this week has been on Gen Con Indy. I spent a good amount of time working out the complete layout of our booth. We set up the entire booth up in the warehouse complete with display materials, and selected the product we are taking with us (most of our catalog) – mainly books and RRT products, as well as a thick pile of original artwork by Chuck Walton II. It takes a lot more time figuring out the booth configuration, which products to bring, how to best present them all, the quantities to bring, and other details than you might think.

We especially want to make sure we have a good supply of everything due to the Gen Con Coupon Book offer that Rifts® and Robotech® fans are going to find awesome. If you are attending, you do not want to miss it! Oh, and we are doing it all in 90+ degree heat. I waited a week because of the heatwave, but it was pointless. Hot as Hades back there, even with fans going. It is definitely a team effort. My thanks to Julius and Alex for all their help and hard work. After that, it is boxing it all up and getting everything ready to put on the truck next Tuesday.

In between, I have been making appointments for meetings at Gen Con, finalizing and confirming arrangements, getting a little writing in, and taking care of other business. Oh, and one more July sale.

Things are starting to pop at Palladium. The Rifter® #74 ships next Friday. Robotech® The Masters Saga™ in the larger, 8½ x 11 format, also ships next Friday. Wayne and I created two Rifts® poker decks and are awaiting the proof copies from DriveThru; we hope to have one or both at Gen Con Indy. We also typeset, laid out and submitted the Raw Preview Editions of Rifts® Sovietski and Secrets of the Atlanteans, both limited in quantity as we have done in the past, and both will be available at Gen Con for those of you dying to see the material for these two books. Oh, and enjoy the Gamer Zombie sale!
