This week has been a hectic blur as we work toward moving a number of projects forward. It has been full of meetings, telephone calls, and hammering away at the keyboard. Energy remains high at the office and among our fans. People are excited about the Rifts® poker decks and Carmen Bellaire’s Rifts® Board Game (2017), as well as upcoming releases. Others are anxious to see more movement and material items for Wave 2 of Robotech® RPG Tactics – as are we. We also share with you more Gen Con 2016 moments in photos and present you some of what’s popping at Palladium Books.

NEWS! Rifts® Poker Decks available as add-ons for Rifts® Savage World Kickstarter backers

For a few weeks now, Rifts® Savage Worlds Kickstarter backers have been asking Palladium Books and Pinnacle Entertainment to make the Rifts® Poker Decks available as rewards in the Rifts® Savage Worlds Kickstarter. So when Pinnacle approached us to do just that, we quickly agreed.

The two Rifts® Poker Decks have been selling like hot cakes to Rifts® gamers as well as Action Decks to Rifts® Savage Worlds players. Our trial run of 150 decks are nearly sold out in just two weeks since Gen Con, and an order for more has already been submitted so we do not run out of stock.

Both sets of Rifts® playing cards are proving to be extremely popular as they each present iconic images from fan fave covers and illustrations in the Rifts® game series, and can be used as an Action Deck for Rifts® Savage Worlds!

If you want something that visually summarizes Rifts® with powerful images of iconic characters, mecha and monsters, then these playing cards are a must for you. Or maybe you are looking for an attractive deck or two for playing cards, or simply to complete your Rifts® collection. The two Rifts® Poker Decks are handsome, fun, and useful items to own. They are an excellent addition to any Palladium collection and make nice gifts. Both are available from Palladium Books in an attractive, full color box – right now.

Gen Con 2016 was amazing for us. We are back and full of energy and excitement about the array of product coming your way from us in the months ahead and over the next year.

I don’t know if it was the atmosphere at Gen Con itself or the energy generated by talking with a wide array of gamers about our plans for Robotech®, Robotech® RPG Tactics™, Rifts® and other projects, or a combination of the two, but we all came back from Gen Con brimming with enthusiasm. Even the drive to and from Gen Con was an adrenaline rush of ideas and brainstorming. I was so pumped up on Tuesday (we got back late Monday afternoon), that I got to the office early and posted a note on my door that read: “Can’t talk. Hot writing!” I didn’t emerge from my office until 6 hours later to eat lunch and discuss the many ideas and plans I had been jotting down.

I want to thank the many fans with whom we confided, and who shared their ideas, experiences and suggestions. Your feedback and input were inspiring and helpful, as always.

UPDATE: Heroes of Humanity is selling fast and furious

Rifts® CS Heroes of Humanity was a hot seller at Gen Con and continues to be our Number One selling sourcebook online and in stores, and that’s according to Palladium’s distributors. That’s great, because Rifts® Heroes of Humanity — along with CS Arsenal and The Disavowed — are setting up something truly huge for Rifts® that happens next year.
