Our imaginations are on fire! The source material written for The Rifter® #73 is the same quality you would see in one of our game line sourcebooks or World Books. The ideas, fresh. New. Challenging. And most of all, fun. Things that should inflame the imaginations of Game Masters and enthrall players.
I’m happy to say, you’ll find more of the same in upcoming sourcebooks for Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy®, Robotech®, Splicers®, HU2 and all the rest. Our imaginations are on fire. We have big plans for Robotech® RPG Tactics, Rifts® and all our game lines. And you’ll be seeing a lot of them happening this year.
I know what you are thinking. It was voiced by a fan and supporter last weekend: “That sounds great, but ... I’m sorry, but the last few years Palladium has been unable to release more than four new books. Why should this year be any different?” A fair question. I’m going to keep my answer brief.
We have gone through a lot the last several years, professionally and personally. Events, tragedies and challenges knocked us down and took the wind out of our sails. But things change. We have mustered our strength, found renewed energy and motivation, and we are fired up and committed to shower you – all of you – with an array of new products that will excite you and leave you wanting more. Palladium is moving forward with support for our many role-playing game lines. We expect to be able to move Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Wave 2 along much more quickly now, have big plans for it and other Palladium game lines, and hope to see new third party ventures, like Rifts® Savage Worlds, expand the Palladium Megaverse®. All are things that should surprise and please you.
Will we miss release dates? I’m sure we will, but by days or weeks, not many months or a year. The proof will be in the products that are going to be out soon. And we are coming out of the gates with The Rifter® #73 packed with “official” source material that is going to knock your socks off. You wanted lots of products. Well, you are going to get them. Please show your support by purchasing them and spreading the word about them.
