Hi Everyone,

A few quick things.

One, Rifts® Chaos Earth® Resurrection is done and ships tomorrow

Wednesday, December 2. We’ve seen the finished printed book and it is a beauty. You guys will love it. Chaos Earth® Resurrection™ is available for order now, and can be requested in Christmas Surprise Packages.

Two, The Rifter® #71 & #72 Double Issue is done and at the printer!

If Julius Rosenstein is any indication, you are going to love it too! Sixty pages into proofreading the book, Julius said to me, “Kev, if the rest of this issue is even half as good as the first 60, this might be the best issue of The Rifter® since ... since ... uh, maybe the best issue ever.” I don’t know if I’d go that far, but it is full of fun material. I don’t know when it will ship yet, probably around December 18, 2015. The Rifter® #71 & #72 Double Issue is available for PRE-Order now, and can be requested in Christmas Surprise Packages, but it may delay their shipping.

Three, Palladium’s Black Friday/Cyber-Monday Weekend Sale Ends at noon on Wednesday, December 2, 2015

We forgot to take the sale down at midnight on Monday, and we’ve had a few last minute shoppers ask if we would extend it for one more day, so here you go. This sale is extended till noon Wednesday.

Robotech® Exclusives – Available to Everyone during this sale. Normally available only at conventions and to our Kickstarter backers, we are making the 2015 Robotech® RPG Tactics™ EXCLUSIVES available during this special sale, which ends on noon, December 2. These are dynamic, easy to build (4-9 pieces per figure) figures that look great. Get ‘em while you can.

Four, only 3½ weeks till Christmas and time is running out to order your Palladium Christmas Surprise Package – the best deal in gaming – Offer ends December 24, 2015

Less time to order than that, when you factor in shipping and if you need it before Christmas Day. Then you probably need to order by December 16th.

If you want your Surprise Package in time for Christmas, YOU NEED TO ORDER in the NEXT 2 WEEKS! When those of you in the USA and Canada order in the next two weeks, you are guaranteed to get your Christmas Surprise Packages in time for the holiday – and without having to pay for a better, faster method of shipping!

Happy Holidays

We hope you enjoyed a very pleasant Thanksgiving weekend.

Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends and gamers. May the holiday be filled with light and joy.

That’s all for now. More in the Thursday Weekly Update.

Happy Thanksgiving

I don’t know about you, but around here, Thanksgiving Day seems to kick off the holiday season that culminates with Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and ends with New Year’s Eve. I’m not talking about holiday sales season – though Palladium does have its annual Christmas Surprise Package and a couple special offers for the weekend through Cyber-Monday – I’m talking about the energy that comes with Christmas and related holidays. There just seems to be something festive and joyful about this time of year. I like that part of the holidays a lot.

I hear some people grumbling about the commercialization of the holidays, but you know what, don’t let that part get to you. Enjoy the good stuff. Actually, stop and think about – maybe even talk about – the things you are thankful for. Particularly the people who bring love, joy and laughter into your life. Make sure you tell them how much they mean to you. How much you love them.

Life is hard. It doesn’t matter how much you work at being a good person and always doing the right thing, you still face challenges and heartbreak. Sometimes crushing heartbreak. And when those dark days hit, it is your friends and loved ones who are there to cry with you and help lift you back on your feet. During the holidays, let them know how much they matter to you. Send a card, give them a call on the phone (not just a text or email, though those are welcomed, too), and when you see them in person, give them a big hug and a few words to acknowledge their importance to you. You won’t be sorry.

As for gifts, sure it’s nice to give out presents. I love giving people presents. But you know what, they don’t have to be big and expensive. I’ve found that a small, thoughtful gift is plenty to tell someone they are remembered, loved and appreciated.

I wish I could call each and every one of you to say thank you and wish you and your families the best for the holidays. I can’t, so we do the next best thing: we offer the Palladium Christmas Surprise Packages and go the extra mile to sign the books when asked to do so – thousands of them – and we are delighted to do it. When I can, I add a little note or a drawing. And we do it all with the genuine intention of putting smiles on your faces in a gesture of gratitude. You guys are the best.

While Palladium has faced its share of challenges and tragedies, it is you who have made the battles all worthwhile. We love what we do for a living, and the people we make the games for. That’s you. You’ve brought us joy and friendship I never imagined when I started Palladium Books back in 1981. I’m thankful about many things: Great friends, great experiences brought to me through role-playing games, new friends, new challenges and opportunities, and the truly wonderful life I have enjoyed because of you.

Happy Thanksgiving! On behalf of everyone here at Palladium Books – may your lives be joyous and filled with good health, dear friends, prosperity and great times at the gaming table.
