The weather has turned decidedly Autumn. Morning temps are in the forties and fifties. Afternoon highs are lucky to break into the low seventies. There is a crispness to the air and at Palladium Books, the atmosphere is pure excitement.
Ideas are flying and several dynamic titles are in development along with plans to get you those long awaited Beyond the Supernatural™, Rifts Chaos Earth®, Splicers®, Heroes Unlimited™ and Palladium Fantasy RPG® releases finished and in your hands between now and this time next year. In fact, I have tentatively plotted out the schedule of our next 12 releases, starting with Graveyard Earth, Bizantium and the Northern Isles, Robotech®: Expeditionary Force Marines, Chaos Earth® Resurrection, Rifts® Secrets of Atlantis, and Chaos Earth® First Responders, followed by more titles. This list of 12 titles are all finished manuscripts awaiting final edit and rewrites so they can go to press over the next 4-8 months. It does not include titles still being written (like Rifts® Heroes of Humanity), under development (like BTS sourcebooks) or being retooled (like the Splicers® sourcebooks). I am determined to get good manuscripts off the shelf and into your hands as dynamic books.
Other exciting stuff is brewing behind the scenes too, but we don’t want to jinx them by mentioning anything too soon. Suffice it to say that if everything goes well, the next few months of 2014 and all of 2015 are going to be filled with new game product releases and excitement. And that includes the 2015 Palladium Open House, which we hope to make spectacular. Check out the POH update a little further on.
