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

A lot is going on. Before I forget, let me mention that Charles Walton II (artist), Apollo Okamura (artist), Greg Diaczyk (writer), Kent Burles (artist), and myself, and maybe a few other Palladium creators, will be at Anime North in Toronto, Canada next weekend (Memorial Day weekend in the US). Likewise, Game Master Cameron Cleveland has orchestrated 10 big events at StrategiCon in Los Angeles, California, also Memorial Day weekend.

At Palladium we are putting into place our plans to fast track a number of upcoming new Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy RPG®, and Dead Reign® sourcebooks, as well as new projects to follow. That involves a lot of coordination, assessment and scheduling. We have something like 14 books, plus The Rifter®, in the pipeline and several others in development for the future. These planning sessions include new approaches and methods of hitting release schedules, and a number of projects that we think will surprise and delight our fans.

Writer Matthew Clements returns to Palladium

We are in talks with writer Matthew Clements (Rifts® Northern Gun 1 & 2, among other titles) to bring him back to write new books and help us get out the books in the pipeline.

In addition, Taylor White recently turned in a Chaos Earth® manuscript, and we are having a real-life first responder and writer take a look at Chaos Earth® First Responders for feedback and additions to this long awaited book. Meanwhile, writers Glen Evans, Carl Gleba, Steve Dawes, Greg Diaczyk and others are busy plotting their next project or two.

PDF only titles – coming soon

The collected Splicers®: I am Legion Mega-Adventure Sourcebook and Champions of Palladium: The Lopanic Games (tentative title; for the Palladium Fantasy RPG®) are likely to be the first two PDF books released by Palladium via DriveThruRPG. The Lopanic Games by Paul Herbert will make a nice companion to Glen Evans’ upcoming Lopan sourcebook. A couple other DriveThru projects are also in the works.

New Raw Preview Editions of books coming soon

A number of people at the Palladium Open House asked that we release more Raw Preview Editions. These are the unedited, “raw” manuscripts before rewrites and additional material is added to the book. There is no artwork, just the untouched manuscript text. Raw Editions are usually limited to 120 or 150 advance copies and fans love them. Since so many people have been inquiring, I will see about releasing 2-4 soon.

Back in Stock Reminder

The following titles are back in stock and available now.

The Rifter® #80

Getting caught up on issues of The Rifter® is a top priority. Both The Rifter® #80 and #81 are in the works. Nick Bradshaw cover for one.

UPDATE: Rifts® Bestiary: North America, Vol. One and Two

The Rifts® Bestiary™ Volume 1 and Volume 2 are the next two books. Probably summer releases. Both books gather and format the existing beasts from the current World Books and Sourcebooks, PLUS a good number of fun, new creatures and monsters to spice up your games, plus maps and more.

UPDATE: Dead Reign®: In the Face of Death

I am looking forward to this sourcebook about life and survival in the big cities during the Zombie Apocalypse. Rooftop living and more.

Strategicon GAMEX 2018 – Memorial Day Weekend, May 25-28, 2018


Eight Rifts® game events set across the globe (the New West/Southwest, Atlantis, Mexico, and Europe/Sovietski), plus two Robotech® games. Don’t miss the fun.

So you want to be a Megaversal Ambassador

1) What is an MA?

Answer: The MAs (Megaversal Ambassadors) are a growing group of Palladium Game Masters who volunteer to run Palladium role-playing gaming events and/or demos at conventions, stores and other gatherings to introduce NEW PLAYERS to the Palladium Megaverse®. They are also active talking about Palladium products and the enjoyment and merits of role-playing, online and at events, to get new players interested in Palladium’s games and to keep the enthusiasm alive among established gamers.
