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

It is the Memorial Day Weekend here in the USA, so I’m going to keep this Update very short. I don’t usually go anywhere for Memorial Day unless it is Anime North every few years. Well, that’s where you will find me, Charles Walton II (artist), Apollo Okamura (artist), Greg Diaczyk (writer), Kent Burles (artist), and maybe a few other Palladium creators. We hope you come over to our booth to say hello and hang.

This same Memorial Day weekend, Game Master Cameron Cleveland has orchestrated 8 Rifts® RPG events and 2 Robotech® RPG Tactics™ games at StrategiCon in Los Angeles, California. If you are attending, check ‘em out. Cameron and his crew of Game Masters are excellent at running games.

Otherwise, Wayne is working on The Rifter® #80 and #81, while I and others are working on the Rifts® Bestiary Vol. One and Vol. Two, and looking ahead at titles in the schedule.
