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.
