I had planned to tell you a lot about our plans for 2017 in this Update, but this has been another harrowing and busy week. Moreover, I pulled something in my back last night and I am in a lot pain and finding it difficult staying focused. I’m waiting for my chiropractor to get to the office in another three hours. Couldn’t sleep most of the night. As a result, I’m going to wait on exciting details and just focus on some of the key things you will want to know about. The first of which is Palladium’s annual Rifter® Super-Subscription Offer which starts now.

The Rifter® Super-Subscription Offer – available now!

The Rifter® Super-Subscription Offer is cool, because you get four issues of The Rifter® at a substantial discount, FREE shipping in the USA, and you get to pick from one of seven FREE GIFT choices worth $20.95 to $43.85 – if you want one. There is a fee for postage and handling of the gift item, and you may decline the gift if you wish. As always, I have tried to make the gift choices fun, with a little something for everyone. And as many of you know, The Rifter® has been better than ever with an increasing amount of “official” source material most every issue. Remember, the material can usually be cannibalized and adapted to any world setting, not just the one it was specifically written for.

See the full description for The Rifter® 2017 Super-Subscription Offer in the online store. This offer only comes ONCE a year, for a limited time, and it is here now!

The Rifter #76

UPDATE: The Rifter® #76 – Ships February 10

Another great issue, more than half of which is “official” source material to add spice and adventure to your games. So much good source material that we had to go 9 point type to squeeze it all in. “Official” for Rifts® and Palladium Fantasy®: The Primorda presents new Elemental beings and their monstrous riding animals (and some magic items that can be made from them). For Heroes Unlimited™ and Ninjas and Superspies™ there is an adventure of villainy and terrorism that can serve as a springboard for many more adventures across the globe. Splicers® gets the next big chapter in the I am Legion adventure source material as we wind up toward the big climax. And more! This issue is jam-packed with good material.

Whew, we’ve spent a lot of time in the warehouse this week with the last of the Surprise Packages. When not, we’ve been working on one product or another. For me that means coordination, assigning art, writing, editing, and wheeling and dealing. In short, we have been busy as all get out.

Surprise Package offer ended with a bang. A great many of you waited to purchase your Palladium Surprise Package until the last weekend. Kathy had been processing orders all weekend, so she was not expecting to see 119 pages of orders Monday morning from just Sunday sales alone! It was a welcomed surprise, but it meant a very busy start to our week.

We signed and packed more than 600 books in just the first two days of the week. As you might imagine, that took pretty much an entire day by itself. Julius spent one day just pulling the books. Then, I spent hours double-checking and signing them all, writing notes and trying to make sure they were all special. The rest of the available crew were right behind me, signing away. Many of the UPS orders went out on Monday. Regular orders, Priority and remaining UPS Grab Bag orders when out on Tuesday. Wednesday, the rest of the orders (60 or 70) went out. Only a handful requiring a bit more time and finesse went out today. So if you ordered a Surprise Package last weekend, it is on its way to you.

As always, your brief comments were fun, funny, touching and appreciated. It was nice to see a good number of new customers, a trend we’ve noticed for the last few years now. It was even more rewarding to see names and read comments from those of you who had left gaming for awhile, but are getting back into it. For many it was a matter of work, or marriage and children, or life in general getting in the way and stealing your time away from gaming. Whatever the reason, welcome back! It is great to see you again. Stick around because we are going to blow your minds with what we have in mind for ALL our games.

Two of our four heating units in the warehouse stopped working last Friday afternoon, so it has been chilling in the warehouse. I think Julius must be part Eskimo by now. One needed a new thermostat, the other requires repairs yet to be determined. Our heating repair guy can’t get to it till early next week, so we’re all happy it is supposed to be unseasonably warm the next several days; 40s and low 50s. Crazy weather. Other than that, we have been working on many titles and projects I spoke about in the last Weekly Update.
