It has been an extra long time – 10 days – since the last Weekly Update posted early on Tuesday, March 18th. In some ways a lot has happened since then.

Wayne and the GAMA Trade Show

The reason the previous Update was posted early was that Wayne had to leave for Las Vegas to represent Palladium Books at the GAMA Trade Show. He was met by long-time Palladium helper and pal, Joe Bergmans, who served as local native guide and Palladium Representative. Together, Wayne and Joe talked to retailers about upcoming product releases and the new releases stores could expect in the Spring and Summer. The greatest interest was in the long-awaited Rifts® titles and, of course, Robotech® RPG Tactics™. Retailers was delighted with the prototypes on hand, and we ourselves were surprised to have John at Ninja Division drop off four new factory prototypes, including the Mk.II Monster, one of my personal favorites. They looked great and were a nice addition to the display. Like everyone else, retailers are anxiously awaiting the initial release of Robotech® RPG Tactics™. (Us too.) When not at the trade show, Wayne and Joe enjoyed some of the local cuisine, including a phenomenal sushi restaurant. Wayne left Tuesday afternoon and arrived back at the Palladium office on Friday afternoon looking rather worn out.

The long wait for books is coming to an end in just a few weeks. Rifts® Northern Gun™ Two is near completion and should go to the printer very soon now (April release). Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames will follow quickly behind it (April or May). The Rifter® #66 (April) is in final production and the Palladium Fantasy RPG® Hardcover (April) will ship in a few weeks. Due to popular demand, we are re-releasing the collected Mechanoid Invasion® Trilogy as a short printing, as it was among the top most requested out of print titles of the 2013 Christmas Surprise Package season.

What comes after that? More good stuff. Chaos Earth® Rise of Magic back in print, Dead Reign™ Graveyard Earth™ (in fact, I worked a little on it over the weekend when inspiration grab hold and wouldn’t let go until I committed six pages of writing and notes to paper), Chaos Earth® First Responders, Chaos Earth® Resurrection, Robotech®: Expeditionary Force Marines™ Sourcebook, and of course, the anxiously anticipated Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Wave One.

There are also a few yet to be scheduled, and in some cases, yet to be announced projects waiting to be green-lit and fast-tracked for production and release. A handful of things that have been under development by me and freelancers who have been working on them for a while. They include: Rifts® Coalition States: Heroes of Humanity™, Rifts® Sovietski™, Rifts® Secrets of Atlantis™, and Rifts® New Navy™ 2. Not sure if some or all of these will see release in 2014, but they are in some stage of completion and in the pipeline.

Other tentative releases for 2014 include the Beyond the Supernatural: Beyond Arcanum™ and Tomes Grotesque™ books, as well as sourcebooks for Splicers®, Heroes Unlimited™ and Palladium Fantasy®.

Robotech® RPG Tactics™ releases may be the blockbuster releases of the year, but we have a nice range of other dynamic RPG titles, new and old, to rock your gaming world.
