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

By Kevin Siembieda

We have been working on many fronts: new books, The Rifter® #78, convention support, fan outreach and advertising mostly this week. Wayne has posted a full description of the 2018 Palladium Open House in the store. He has also made several book titles available as PDFs the last few weeks, with two this week, two next week, and more planned for the weeks ahead.

We’ve also been shipping books like crazy. Secrets of the Atlanteans™ is burning hot. In fact, the popular game lines this week have been Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy RPG®, Heroes Unlimited™ and Dead Reign®. I also had the opportunity to speak with James Bond this week. Cool, right? He’s not 007 or licensed to kill, but rather James is a real person. Fun for me, probably not so much fun for the guy who has the same name as a famous, fictional character. I’m a huge James Bond fan and I have seen every movie and read a few of the 007 books. So it was a silly pleasure to learn that James Bond is a big fan who enjoys all our RPGs, particularly Rifts®. Hey, gotta find fun in the little things.

Rifts Secrets of the Atlanteans Gold Hardcover

UPDATE: Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans “Gold Edition” Hardcover – available now

The Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™ signed and limited Gold Edition is a popular item. It is $50, makes a nice birthday or Christmas gift, and is signed by the Palladium staff. Limited to 300 signed and numbered copies. The gold imprint of the magic tattoos on the faux black leather looks downright magical and classy. Based on the popularity of the softcover edition, I believe the Gold Collector’s Edition will be a fast seller, especially as we get closer to Christmas. If you really want one, I would order it over the next five months, before it is gone. Sold on a first come, first served basis. The earlier you purchase, the lower the number. Available now.

Rifts Secrets of the Atlanteans

UPDATE: Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans

Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™ is hot and should be hitting store shelves this weekend, so watch for it. If you can’t find it, have your store place a “back stock” order to insure their distributor gets it back in stock quickly. FYI: Author Carl Gleba will be at the POH to game, sign books and chat.

Please take a look at the free preview on DriveThruRPG.com to get a glimpse of everything this resource-packed book has to offer. $24.95 retail. And if you don’t already own them, we highly recommend you pick up Rifts® World Book One: Atlantis, World Book 21: Splynn Dimensional Market™ (both filled with great source material) and Rifts® Dimension Book 7: Megaverse® Builder (also written by Carl Gleba), as all are useful companions to Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™. Please keep those orders coming.

Nightbane Dark Designs

UPDATE: Nightbane® Dark Designs sourcebook – Available now

Nightbane® Dark Designs™, stats and creation tables for the Ancient Nightbane, 60 new Common Talents, 38 new Elite Talents, Talent creation rules, 18 comprehensive Mortphus Tables, plus tables and Talents from prior books collected in one volume. Remember, Talents and Morphus abilities can be easily turned into magic spells and super abilities for other world settings — and vice versa, made especially easy with the conversion rules in Dark Designs™. Take a look at the free preview on DriveThruRPG.com to get a glimpse of everything this resource-packed book has to offer. FYI: Author Mark Oberle is one of the 30-40 Palladium personalities attending the 2018 POH.

Rifts Sovietski

UPDATE: Rifts® Sovietski – coming soon

A nice John Zeleznik cover for another resource packed title. Rifts® Sovietski will be ideal for use with the Triax books, Warlords of Russia, Mindwerks and other European locations.

UPDATE: Dead Reign®: In the Face of Death sourcebook

I put down some additional notes for this book when ideas sprang out of nowhere this week. I think this title, like Hell Followed, is going to please and surprise a lot of people.

The Rifter #78

UPDATE: The Rifter® #78 – in final production

The Rifter® #78 is coming along nicely. I believe Charles Walton and other artists are all done with the art for the issue. Now it’s time to typeset and layout. This is another great issue with a range of awesome source material for Palladium Fantasy®, Rifts®, Splicers®, and Beyond the Supernatural™, including Greg Diaczyk’s BTS Modern Necromancer, plus G.M. advice, news and other goodness. ALL of it adaptable to just about ANY game setting.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #79 – coming soon

The Rifter® #79 should quickly follow #78 as we work to catch up with this useful series. If you haven’t looked at an issue of The Rifter®, we recommend it. Each issue is filled with optional (sometimes “official”) source material. More importantly, most of the material can be easily modified and adapted to ANY game setting, especially adventures, monsters, villains, magic and technology.

Robotech® RPG eBooks on Amazon and iBooks – available now

Don’t forget, we have made current Robotech® core RPG titles available as ebooks. Palladium Books’ Robotech®: The Shadow Chronicles® Role-Playing Game, Robotech®: The Macross® Saga Sourcebook, and Robotech®: The Masters Saga™ Sourcebook are now available as eBooks, with more titles to follow. Robotech® RPG titles are available from the following eBook channels/sellers: iBooks (through iTunes), Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, Google Play Books, Overdrive.com, Copia (copiaclass.com), Gardners Books, Baker & Taylor, E-Sentral, Scribd, Ciando, Hoopla, Playster, and more.

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

By Kevin Siembieda

It has been a productive week and there is a lot going on. In addition to work on various game projects, we are quietly working on a number of things behind the scenes. That includes updating our website and making it much more mobile platform friendly, posting Murmurs, updating our catalog, working with retailers and distributors, and making plans for the coming year. Books are blowing out of the warehouse so please keep the orders coming. We have a number of new titles in development now.

UPDATE: A fun Gen Con video interview

I keep forgetting to post a link to an interview I (Kevin Siembieda) did with Matthew Lemke at Gen Con for Through Gamer Goggles. It’s a fun interview, offers a bit of Palladium news we have not yet revealed about an upcoming Rifts® product release, and you get a glimpse of how busy our booth was. The interview took place Friday morning.

Rifts Secrets of the Atlanteans Gold Hardcover

UPDATE: Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans “Gold Edition” Hardcover – available now

Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™ Gold Edition, limited to 300 signed and numbered copies, has been shipping all week. If you have ordered one, it is on its way to you. Or may already be in your hands! The gold imprint of the magic tattoos on the faux black leather looks downright magical and classy. Very dynamic.

As I have noted before, Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™ and Nightbane® Dark Designs™ are flying out of the warehouse and we sold out 120 copies of Atlanteans™ at Gen Con by Saturday. That makes me believe the Gold Edition will be a fast seller, especially as Christmas rolls around the corner. If you really want one, I would order it over the next five months, before it is gone. Sold on a first come, first served basis. Early purchasers get the lowest numbers.

Rifts Secrets of the Atlanteans

UPDATE: Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans

Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™ is a hot seller. In fact, a fan who dropped by the Palladium office was rather wowed by it. He was surprised by the amount of new information and magic it contained. He promised to come back for it soon. He just needed to pick up a few crucial Rifts® Chaos Earth® titles for his Rifts® campaign first. He was also pleased to learn about the 2018 Open House and is excited to attend. FYI: Author Carl Gleba will be at the POH to game, sign books and chat. Note: Secrets of the Atlanteans should be hitting stores next week where it isn’t already available.

Please take a look at the free preview on DriveThruRPG.com to get a glimpse of everything this resource-packed book has to offer. $24.95 retail. And if you don’t already own them, we highly recommend you pick up Rifts® World Book One: Atlantis, World Book 21: Splynn Dimensional Market™, and Rifts® Dimension Book 7: Megaverse® Builder (also written by Carl Gleba), as all are useful companions to Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™. Please keep those orders coming.

Nightbane Dark Designs

UPDATE: Nightbane® Dark Designs sourcebook – Available now

Nightbane® Dark Designs™, should be hitting store shelves next week with Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™. Dark Designs is a dynamic sourcebook packed with information, Morphus tables, magical Talents (plus tables and Talents from prior books), the Ancient Nightbane and more. Remember, Talents and Morphus abilities can be easily turned into magic spells and super abilities for other world settings — and vice versa, made especially easy with the conversion rules in Dark Designs™. Take a look at the free preview on DriveThruRPG.com to get a glimpse of everything this resource-packed book has to offer.
