Another busy week. As usual, I’ve been bouncing around on several projects trying to make sure everything is moving forward. And we’ll be working into the weekend. Wayne and Chuck will be attending the Alliance Trade Show, while I attend a local event. As soon as we get back, we’ll be back to work on finishing books.

It’s still hot and humid as Hades in this part of the country, but I’m happy to report the last air conditioning repair seems to be holding. Thank goodness. Otherwise, juggling many projects, orchestrating projects with freelancers via the telephone and exploring opportunities.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #75 – “official” source material – September release

I have spent a lot of time working on the outstanding “official” source material for The Rifter® #75. Man, this issue is worth it for the Rifts® adventure and gaming advice written by Carl Gleba and me alone, or for Greg Diaczyk’s Elemental article alone, or Chuck, Chris, and Lance’s continuing Splicers® Legion adventure source material, and there is more! It’s looking like 75% of the issue will be “official” source material, too. Talk about a great issue. This issue also looks at and talks about Rifts® Savage Worlds. I expect all the writing and editing portion of The Rifter® #75 will be done by the end of next week. Then it’s a matter of waiting for the artwork to be finished.

UPDATE: Hell Followed – 160 page sourcebook for Dead Reign® – October Release

Artist Nick Bradshaw has turned in the bulk of his illustrations for Hell Followed, and this is one of the projects I’m working on. October release is looking good. And this is an excellent addition to the Dead Reign series, with much more planned for 2017.

Folks are still coughing and hacking here at the Palladium offices, but everyone is generally feeling better. Somehow, I have avoided the bug going around, and I hope it stays that way. We just got our air conditioning repaired this morning! They had to make a special order for the repair. That made for another hot, humid, miserable week. We had fans blowing everywhere, but by evening it was still hot, and the humidity was awful. I hope this repair holds. On the work front, we have mostly been working on material slated for The Rifter® #75 and it is pretty powerful, action-packed stuff. Otherwise we have bounced around some on various other books in the pipeline. All of it looking amazing.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #75 – “official” source material – September release

Wayne has been making final selections of material. I have been making tweaks, edits and additions on the material already selected. The Rifter® #75 is shaping up to be a very dynamic sourcebook with all or mostly “official” source material.

The emphasis is Rifts® and Splicers® with some Fantasy and other good stuff. It includes a new Elemental-based character by Greg Diaczyk ideal for the Rifts®, Phase World® and Fantasy settings; a Rifts® Primer with a fully fleshed out adventure, NPCs and gaming tips by Carl Gleba and Kevin Siembieda perfect for beginners and fun for anyone; and the next chapter of the Splicers® mega-adventure by Charles Walton II, Chris Kluge and company, which keeps building toward the climax that is coming in The Rifter® #76. This issue also looks at and talks about Rifts® Savage Worlds. Don’t forget, The Rifter® #74 and the 224 page, Rifter® #71/72 double issue are both available now.

UPDATE: Hell Followed – 160 page sourcebook for Dead Reign® – October Release

A sourcebook to add spice to your Zombie Apocalypse. I am expecting the interior artwork in a week or two. The cover is done. Final editing awaits.
