UPDATE: The NEW Palladium website is live! Our new website went live Tuesday night and people are loving it. We've gotten a flood of emails and posts using words like “great,” “love it” and “worth the wait.” What a relief. I mean, we knew it was good and we liked it. We put a lot of thought, time and work into it, especially Rex Barkdoll, Thomas Bartold and Wayne Smith, BUT you never know if other people will like it. Whew, we're so glad you do.

If you haven't seen it for yourself, we cheerfully invite you to take a look and enjoy. The new website is much more visually dynamic and fun, as well as better organized, updated and easy to use.

The online store is also much improved, more attractive, intuitive and fun. Plus we updated many descriptions and images, and all the usual shipping options were available. Note: You do not have to create a new user account in the store; the same login and password you used in the old store will work just fine. Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties placing your order. Please buy Palladium. ;)

Palladium's new website was definitely a labor of love and we have Rex, Thom and Wayne to thank for that. Thank you guys. I also want to thank the volunteers who helped us test the store and the site. Your comments, observations and input was invaluable.

UPDATE: Rifts® Vampire Kingdoms™ is looking awesome. The book is really coming along. I've actually surprised myself with how much new material is in this book, along with more detailed descriptions and clarifications, much better organization, and updates throughout. There is a wealth of new information about vampires, the vampire kingdoms and travel that I think will please Rifts® fans and delight gamers looking to adventure in the Vampire Kingdoms. I am very happy with this book. I'm putting in everything I think needs to be in it, plus a lot of the suggestions gamers have made. By the way, thank you for your input and suggestions, they are always thought-provoking and helpful. I think there is going to be more new artwork than I originally imagined too. Take a look at the updated description for more details.

Folks are clamoring for the two Rifts® Vampire titles, as well as Rifts® Lemuria, Robotech® New Generation Sourcebook and Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames, so now it is simply a matter of getting them finished and to press.

UPDATE: Rifts® Lemuria. I have assigned a big chunk of the artwork for Lemuria as well as reviewed a good portion of the manuscript. Lemuria is a sweet book, with a lot of wild, new ideas, monsters, magic, and characters. I think this is another title that takes an approach that will surprise and delight gamers. For one thing, much of the material is suitable for games that take place on dry land as well as below the waves. Chuck Walton is one of the main artists on this book and I still need to assign Lemuria art to Amy Ashbaugh and Nick Bradshaw, both of whom have requested to work on this book. Will probably tap Burles and Mumah too. Meanwhile, the writer, Greg Diaczyk, is making some additions and a few rewrites. The description elsewhere in this Weekly Update has been updated a bit too.

UPDATE: Robotech® New Generation Sourcebook. Man oh man, Robotech® fans are getting hungry for more books. It seems like I see at least one or two inquiries about this book and others every single day. I guess I'd better get this book moving in the pipeline faster, especially if we want it out before Gen Con Indy.

UPDATE: Rifts® Book of Magic to ship May 26 – sooner than expected. My printer could not give me an exact date yet, but it looks like Rifts® Book of Magic will be back in print and ready to ship by May 26. It was scheduled to ship on the 25th, but in the last Weekly Update we announced the book looked to be delayed till May 31st in order to have it Smythe sewn. (We sew and glue core books so the pages can never fall out.) Palladium's printer, McNaughton & Gunn in Saline, Michigan, being the Palladium supporters and wizards that they are, now believe the book should be ship on May 26 and they are actually shooting for the original May 25th date. I love the people at Gunn, they are the best.

The following Rifts® titles are also recently back in print and ready to ship:
- Rifts® World Book 8: Rifts® Japan
- Rifts® World Book 13: Lone Star
- Rifts® Dimension Book™ 6: Three Galaxies
- Rifts® Black Vault
- Rifts® Mercenaries
- Aliens Unlimited™ – A Heroes Unlimited™ sourcebook
- Rifts® Baseball Caps

DriveThruRPG.com offers more than 90 out of print titles (and a few that are not) as PDF downloads. It is a good resource for getting The Rifter® #1-48 and to fill in your RPG library with first edition copies of Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy®, Heroes Unlimited™, and other game lines as well as books such as Nightbane® Book Four: Shadows of Light™ and both versions of the The Mechanoids® RPG (1985) and The Collected Mechanoid Invasion® Trilogy (1981-1983). We're planning on adding The Rifter® #0, the Hades Map package and a few other things to the available products list in the next month or two. We've got some other ideas as well, so keep your eyes peeled.

There will be more Sneak Previews of upcoming books on DriveThuRPG. We are glad people have been enjoying the free sneak previews of Armageddon Unlimited™ and Thundercloud Galaxy™. A sneak peek at Rifts® Vampire Kingdoms™ is next.

Palladium Presence at A-Kon – June 10-12, Dallas, Texas. Reminder to fans in the Dallas-Houston area that Megaversal Ambassador Kenneth Haun is running Palladium gaming events at A-Kon. Join the fun. Sorry, none of us can make the event.

Palladium to attend Gen Con Indy – August 4-7. I mention this every week because we want to make sure everyone knows and swings by our booth. Spread the word. Even though there are no “official” Palladium gaming events there are always a bunch of “unofficial” games. Please stop by the Palladium booth to chat and get autographs, pick up new books and back stock titles, and have some fun. Palladium people you'll get to meet include:
- Kevin Siembieda
- Wayne Smith
- Nick Bradshaw (artist)
- Michael Mumah (artist)
- Brandon Aten (writer)
- Matthew Clements (writer; tentative)
- And others to be announced.

UPDATE: Palladium's Facebook numbers continue to climb. We surpassed the mark of 2,700 people who like the page and are closing in on 3,000. I've been making sure to pop in and post things and comment on other people's posts every day or two. I'm enjoying the interaction with friends and fans, and reading what people have to say. We can hardly wait until we have links to video interviews and book reviews on YouTube. Carmen Bellaire is especially pumped up about this and has kept on me to keep our plans moving along in the area of videos. Thanks, Carmen.

UPDATE: Online sales were a roller coaster this week. Sales were up and down without any apparent rhyme or reason. Depending on how sales are Friday morning, we may have a good week or a so-so one. I am happy to report that sales remain strong for Rifts® Thundercloud Galaxy, Armageddon Unlimited™, Dimensional Outbreak™, Heroes of the Megaverse®, Rifts® Japan, Rifts® Lone Star™ and The Rifter® #54, along with other titles. Rifts® Lone Star is another one that is selling like crazy.

QueenofGhouls.com – Kathy Simmons continues to whip up new ghoulish creations. She has a crazed butcher in the works and I think she's doing a zombie pirate next.

UPDATE: Alex and his house. It's all coming together fast now. The house has a new roof and electrical and heating should be well underway, if not finished, by next Tuesday! There have been a few suprises and unexpected problems, but it still looks like the house repairs should be finished by the end of May. (For those who might not remember, Alex and his family suffered a house fire earlier this year.)

Behind the Scenes: There is more going on behind the scenes as we make plans for new product and ventures into new media. We are also entertaining business offers from more than one interested party. I'm telling you there is excitement in the air. I'm talking to artists and writers every day. I'm trying to stay focused on writing, but it's been difficult at times. Fear not, I'm writing away, and so are a lot of other guys. Palladium is definitely on the move.

Keep those imaginations burning bright and game on.

The Queen of Ghouls: Life-Sized Halloween Props

Check out the new creations by Palladium's very own Kathy Simmons. See her new zombie, Jack Skellington and Sally, with more new creations on the drawing board. Each Halloween prop is truly life-sized (most are 6 feet or taller – Jack is almost 8 feet) and seem almost alive.

Each is an all-weather, life-sized Halloween prop that can handle rain and snow, and is a one-of-a-kind work of art (no two are exactly the same). Each looks frighteningly “real.” All come apart and fold down to slightly larger than a king-size pillow for easy storage. Comes with easy instructions, a plastic storage bag, and the lawn stake to stand it up in your front yard. Indoor stand sold separately.

Types of “Ghouls” include: Zombies (all kinds!), killer clowns, wizards, witches, devils, grave ghouls, scarecrows, executioners, mad doctors, deadly nurses, vampires, werewolves, and more. Kathy's also now offering an array of hand-painted Halloween signs, signs with heads and bodies hanging from them, witch's brewing pots, Halloween centerpieces and more. Best of all, her high quality creations are much more affordable and imaginative than most competitors or mass produced items in a store, making them affordable Halloween fun.

If you think the photos online look good, you should see them in person. A typical “ghoul,” as she calls her creations, costs $129-$259. You can see some of her work at her Queen of Ghouls™ Ebay store – queenofghouls.com.
