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

With less than two weeks till Christmas it is crunch time for us, processing, packing and shipping Christmas Surprise Packages as fast they come in. That and getting The Rifter® #79 (almost done) and Rifts® Sovietski (another fantastic World Book) to the printer and into your hands! We are working away at a feverish pace.

Our thanks to all of you who have been ordering Christmas Surprise Packages and taking advantage of our holiday sales. NOTE: If you need a Surprise Package in time for Christmas, you MUST place your orders this week and over the weekend. And do not use Media Mail. It must ship by UPS or Priority Mail to have any hope of getting to its destination by Saturday, December 23! Read on for details.

UPDATE: Christmas Surprise Package – LAST 5 days to order in time for Christmas – do not miss out

If you NEED a Christmas Surprise Package in time for Christmas, please order today and tomorrow. Orders placed this weekend should reach most locations in the contiguous United States by Christmas, but we can no longer absolutely guarantee it. AND you must use UPS or Priority Mail. Media Mail will NOT arrive in time for Christmas. Order TODAY if you can. This weekend at the latest.

If you live west of the Mississippi and place your order via UPS or Priority Mail by December 14 you should get it in time for Christmas! Orders placed as late as December 17 still have a good chance of arriving in time, but no guarantee. Note: You must use UPS or Priority Mail.

If you live east of the Mississippi and place your order by December 17, you should get it in time for Christmas. Sooner is better. Orders placed on Monday, December 18, have an excellent likelihood of arriving in time, but no guarantee. Note: You must use UPS or Priority Mail.

December 18 if shipping via 3-Day UPS within the contiguous USA.

December 20, if shipping via 2-Day UPS within the contiguous USA.

December 21, if shipping via NEXT DAY service (any) within the contiguous USA.

If you do not need the Surprise Package for Christmas, you can order right up to Christmas Eve. (And here’s a secret, I almost always extend the Surprise Package offer for another couple of weeks. That too has become something of a tradition.)

For orders going out of country, such as to Canada and overseas, we can NOT guarantee delivery in time for Christmas. We’ve had very good luck in the past, but no guaranteed delivery from this point forward.

What is a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package? It’s a fun bargain for you, and it’s our way of saying thank you to Palladium fans around the world. Fill holes in your collection, try new games and world settings, get gifts for your gaming pals, and if you want, we’ll sign every book.

It is usually $90-$95 worth of Palladium RPG books, often more! for only $45 plus shipping and handling. And because you guys and gals mean so much to us, I often pack in more than $96 worth of product (sometimes a lot more). Oh, and each book will be signed by me (Kevin Siembieda) and available Palladium staff and freelancers if you request it. It is our way of saying thanks to all of you for your support and kindness.

  • Palladium Surprise Packages make the perfect holiday gifts for the gamers in your life – Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or the Winter Solstice, or you’re looking for a gift for a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or any special occasion that falls between now and February, a Surprise Package may be the ideal way to go. You get a ton of stuff on the cheap, you can get a bunch of autographs, and you look like you spent a fortune.
  • Fill holes in your own collection.
  • Try new game settings (Rifts®, Robotech®, Palladium Fantasy®, Heroes Unlimited™, Splicers®, Nightbane®, Dead Reign®, Beyond the Supernatural™, Ninjas & Superspies™, After the Bomb®, and all the rest).
  • Get cool stuff (miniatures, bookmarks, maps, greeting cards, etc.).
  • Get autographs from the Palladium crew and available freelancers.
  • Be surprised when the package arrives.
  • All items selected and comments read by Santa Kevin, himself. Ho, ho, ho!

The best deal of the holidays! You could pay $50 for just a single core rule book, but for $45 plus shipping, you can get 4-6 books in a Surprise Package, depending on their retail value. Or you can get that core rule book and 2-4 sourcebooks. And we will sign the books if you request it. How do you beat that? It is the best deal in gaming! Our way of giving back to the fans and making the holidays special for you.

Surprise Package mitigates overseas shipping costs – take advantage of this while you can

The low cost of the Surprise Package mitigates the cost of shipping. It is, in effect, the equivalent of getting the books you want at retail, plus autographs, and paying the equivalent of only $5-$20 for overseas shipping!

How can that be? Well, if you factor in that you are getting say, $100 in product, but only paying $45 for them, and shipping is, say $60 or $70, that’s $105 or $115 total – which is like $5-$15 in shipping for $100+ worth of product. And I always load up foreign Surprise Packages, so make sure you send a long Wish List! Of course, the purchaser is responsible for any Customs fees, taxes and other fees, but since we are selling you a $45 Surprise Package (not $100+ in books) you should only pay on a $45 purchase.

MANY overseas customers take advantage of the Surprise Packages for this reason! And it is likely the ONLY way for you to get autographs. Give it a try, we don’t think you will be disappointed. This is the time for our friends and fans overseas to load up on the Palladium products they have been wanting! OR take advantage of the Digital Christmas Surprise Package to get PDF titles of your favorite games and sourcebooks. Enjoy.

Please note that Palladium Books has NO control over the cost of shipping/postage, nor the brokerage fees, Customs charges or any other related fees charged by other countries. Within the USA, Media Mail is the least expensive method of shipping, but also the least reliable and slowest. To our Canadian customers, we have no idea why it costs so much to mail books and product to you. So much for NAFTA making things easier. Game on.

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

Only 15 shipping days till Christmas! So you need to order over the next week for most of you to have your orders arrive in time for Christmas. Remember, you lose a couple of shipping days because Christmas falls on a Monday, so get us your Christmas orders pronto. Of course, we will do our best to process and ship orders as fast as we can. Oh and do NOT use Media Mail if you NEED the order in time for Christmas as it is the slowest and least reliable method of shipping.

We are working away on books and have something new for your consideration. Read on for details.

SALE! All Robotech® products and available issues of The Rifter® – 50% off – one last weekend only

Gamers went wild over the Robotech® sale the couple of times we did it in November, so we thought we would offer it one more time, early enough for you to get items for Christmas gifts. Plus, we’re putting available issues of The Rifter® on sale with it. A little something for everyone. Enjoy and happy holidays. Sale ends Monday morning, December 11. But that’s not all, check out the next offer, below.

NEW! Palladium “Digital” Christmas Surprise Package

For the first time ever Palladium Books is offering a “Digital” Christmas Surprise Package!

It works very much like our traditional Christmas Surprise Package offer going on right now, except for just $24.99 you get a minimum of $50 (usually $60 or more) worth of Palladium PDF books (and digital products like Game Master Kits, Primers, maps, paper miniatures, etc.). That’s right, $50-$60+ worth of PDF titles and digital products for only $24.99 during this holiday special. Christmas is only two and a half weeks away. Available NOW through December 24, 2017.

If you have never ordered a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package before, give it or the new Digital Surprise Package a try early, because you’ll be blown away and probably want to order another one! If you are new to this fun concept, we ask that you send us a “Wish List” of 10-15 items. Then we select a bunch of the items and may surprise you with stuff you are not expecting; PDFs like issues of The Rifter®, or a Palladium RPG or sourcebook(s), or other items that we think you might enjoy. All items are “hand-picked” by one of Santa Kevin’s helpers from YOUR Wish List. We have left fans thrilled with what they received every single year with the traditional Christmas Surprise Package, and we plan to do the same with the Digital Surprise Package. We always try to make each Digital Grab Bag truly special and tailored to you. Those of you who have ordered our regular Surprise Package know what to expect.

UPDATE: Christmas Surprise Package – Last two weekends to order

Time is running out to get a Christmas Surprise Package in time for Christmas. There are only 15 shipping days till Christmas – Saturday, December 23 being the last delivery day, and that only applicable to some shipping methods.

As noted last week, if you live east of the Mississippi, you can place your order via UPS or Priority Mail up to December 18 and get it in time for Christmas. But please don’t swamp us like that. Please try to get your orders in THIS WEEKEND. Thanks.

The rest of you should place orders by December 14.

To our friends in Canada and overseas, any orders placed this weekend should get to you in time for Christmas, but we cannot guarantee it. Likewise, ANY order sent by Media Mail cannot be guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas, order at your own risk.

Please Note: With Christmas so close at hand, we will try our best to turn orders around the day after we get them. Orders placed Friday, Saturday and Sunday will NOT ship until the following Monday or Tuesday.

Please spread the word to gamers everywhere. People only learn about the Palladium Christmas Surprise Package offer by word of mouth, The Rifter® and our website, so please post and spread the word everywhere. The Grab Bags are a great way to try Robotech® or Robotech® RPG Tactics, Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy RPG® and any of our games. Pick up one for yourself and for every gamer you know!
