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

Happy Independence Day to all of my Fellow Americans. Okay, that’s a little bit early, but the Fourth of July is just around the corner, and I imagine many of you will be heading out for a long weekend today or tomorrow. Enjoy the holiday.

Our week here at Palladium has been a full one. Julius has been kept busy in the warehouse shipping out many online orders and a large number of distributor restock orders. Awesome! Keep those orders coming. Wayne has been active getting new PDF books posted to DriveThruRPG as well as editing and other duties, and Chuck has been drawing away. My main focus this week has been getting Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™ finished so we can get it off to the printer. I was able to devote most of the week to writing and editing, which meant peeling 100 manuscript pages off the printer for Wayne and Alex’s final edits. Meanwhile I’m working away on the remaining parts of the book. I’m happy to report everyone has been loving what they are reading. Awesome book. When it is at the printer next week, we dive immediately into Nightbane® Dark Designs™. Both sourcebooks should be July releases.

I think I put together a very fun and useful sale for the holiday weekend, with several titles that should come in handy for use with Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™. Read on for details.

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

This week was filled with meetings, phone calls, and brainstorming as our business manager, Scott Gibbons, gets up to speed and starts implementing a number of plans for improvement. Otherwise, we have been working on one project or another, from Robotech RPG Tactics™ to Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans, and a heck of a lot of other things. Rifts® Book of Magic™ is available as a PDF book on DriveThru, and so is Robotech® Strike Force™ (1995). And don’t forget, the current Robotech® RPG titles are being made available as e-books on Amazon, iPad and other digital platforms right now. The Palladium Tumblers are selling fast, so don’t wait if you want one. We have a new fun sale for you, and other updates, so please read on for all the latest goodness.

2018 (or 2019) Palladium Open House, anyone?

Hosting a 2018 or 2019 Palladium Open House (POH) is one of the many things we have debated and explored this week. Scott has been lobbying for us to do another for some time, and has me and the Palladium crew half convinced to pull the trigger on the idea.

Scott would like us to do one as soon as April 19-22, 2018 – only 10 months from now – or April, 2019 (22 months from now). We have already made a cursory investigation of hotel availability and we would probably need to put people at two different hotels, both within a few minutes from the office, with room rates that look to be in the $55-$80 per night range (Red Roof Inn and Extended Stay, respectively), plus tax, of course.

After discussing the idea with Kathy and the rest of the Palladium crew, I told Scott that if enough fans are interested in us hosting a POH, we would do it. I know there is a hardcore group of fans who want one badly, but what about other fans? Scott has posted a poll in All Things Palladium on the message boards, to gauge interest and to see which year most of you favor. I know some of you need a solid year or more to plan ahead, so let us know which you would prefer, April 2018 or 2019. Please respond to the poll and reach out to us any way you would like, but let us know at your earliest convenience. If it is 2018, we need to book hotels and start planning now.

Head on over to the forums to put your vote in. Thank you for your feedback. http://palladium-megaverse.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=153738
