The Rifter® #75 has shipped to subscribers, the Hell Followed™ sourcebook for Dead Reign® goes to the printer next week, Rifts® CS Arsenal™ goes into full final production, making plans for the release of Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Wave Two in 2017, and it is Halloween weekend! So this is a big week for us, Kathy and me in particular. I have been writing like a demon and handling several layers of business all week, and things are looking very positive.
As for Halloween, it is Kathy’s favorite holiday and a very close second for me after Christmas. We create a sprawling Halloween display that kids of all ages simply adore. Kathy has people coming from a 30 mile radius. Sometimes farther! It is wonderful to see Kathy in her element and so happy, and a joy to see how happy it makes the couple thousand people who come to experience it during the month of October. Halloween itself should be fantastic, as it is supposed to be an unseasonable 60 degrees. The last two year it was cold, raining and snow flurrying, and we still had 400+ kids show up. We get that same joy fulfilling Palladium’s Christmas Surprise Packages, and I’m sure we will feel joy and relief when we can finally deliver RRT Wave Two next year.
Read on for details about these subjects, and Happy Halloween! May it be full of spooky fun and good times with friends and family.
UPDATE: The Rifter® #75 – Available now
The Rifter® #75 has shipped to subscribers and distributors and should be hitting store shelves around November 8th, if not sooner. It is almost entirely “official” source material and adventures, and packed with gaming advice and examples by Carl Gleba and me, Kevin Siembieda. Plus the next chapter in the sweeping Splicers® adventure and source material by Charles Walton II and company, a Rifts® setting in Canada, a preview of Rifts® for Savage Worlds, news, and coming attractions. If you don’t subscribe to The Rifter®, do yourself a favor and pick up this issue. Seriously. Every player and Game Master who has seen the material in this issue went gonzo over it.
