Yep, it’s the Weekly Update a day or two early. Why? Because most of us will be at GrandCon this weekend running games, talking about Rifts®, Robotech® and Rifts® for Savage Worlds®. Yeah, I’m running three games starting at 10 AM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All proceeds go to charity. At least two will be Lord DeSilca, though I will have a BTS game ready for the group that wants to switch up. Speaking of conventions, Wayne and Chuck were at the Alliance Open House last weekend which went very well, as did my local event. Here is the latest.

GrandCon – Grand Rapids, Michigan – September 16, 17 & 18, 2016

GrandCon is this weekend! I (Kevin Siembieda) am one of the guests of honor along with Sean Patrick Fannon and some other people, so there will be a lot of talk about Rifts® Savage Worlds, and our own Rifts®, Robotech® and other Palladium games. I’m running three charity gaming events ($5 per person) and can accommodate 10 people per game. Lord DeSilca tournaments are always a crowd pleaser and I love running them, but I may run one Beyond the Supernatural™ game for the group that wants supernatural horror rather than fantasy.

When I’m not running games, Chuck Walton II, Wayne Smith and I will be at the Palladium Books booth where we’ll have the Rifts® Poker Decks, Robotech®, Rifts® Heroes of Humanity, Sovietski, two of the last three copies of Rifts® Atlanteans (put aside special for this convention) and a good selection of game books for sale. Oh, and Chuck Walton is bringing a pile of his original art for sale, too. Sean Patrick Fannon is running a few games and may hang out at our booth from time to time. We are all available to chat, sign books and have fun. The van is already loaded up and we are raring to go. Very much looking forward to hanging with Sean and meeting the GrandCon folks.

From everything I hear, GrandCon is a rapidly expanding game and comic book convention that is growing by leaps and bounds. I believe they are expecting 3,000-4,000 people to attend this year. And it is right here in Grand Rapids, Michigan! I hope to see fans from across Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and maybe even Wisconsin and eastern Iowa. Come on down to join the fun.

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.
