We are recovering from the aftermath of a violent windstorm that swept across Michigan for most of Wednesday. The Palladium office and warehouse miraculously survived the windstorm without any serious problems. Lights flickered a few times, one tree came down, and we lost Internet access for a short while, but other than that, we are fully powered, at least for now. Unfortunately, Kathy Simmons, Chuck Walton and Wayne Smith are all down and dealing with storm issues. They are among the estimated 800,000 people in Michigan without power. To complicate matters, the weather, which had been spring-like, is dropping to freezing and below for the next 6-8 days. Our hearts go out to the many with down wires, uprooted trees and power outages across the Midwest and into lower Canada. We hope your power is restored soon!
BIG Rifts® sales event – March 9-15, 2017 – One week only
We think of this as our “What happened to an early spring?!” sale. The Rifts® Ultimate RPG and all World Books are available at a 30% discount from now through next Wednesday. There has been so much excitement about Rifts® lately, that I thought we should celebrate with a short sale. A good time to stock up. (Next week will be Rifts® Sourcebooks, including the Rifts® G.M. Guide and Book of Magic, and Rifts® miniatures.)
UPDATE: The Rifter® #77 – available now
The windstorm did not prevent our printer from delivering The Rifter® #77 a day early. We packed up subscriber copies Wednesday afternoon and shipped them all out this morning. Distributor orders ship on Friday. It is another action-packed and fun issue with “official” adventure source material for Heroes Unlimited™ (Doc Feral and super-powered mutants), as well as some very fun material for Palladium Fantasy® (a new city-state to explore in the Old Kingdom) and Rifts® (a TW city and characters that will surprise you) and ... are you ready for it, the final chapter of the epic, Splicers® I am Legion adventure source material, also “official.” Shipping now!
The Rifter® #76 is also available now. More than half of it is “official” source material, including The Primorda, “Official” for Rifts® and Palladium Fantasy® (new Elemental beings and their monstrous riding animals), and “official” adventure source material for the Splicers® I am Legion story which sees its conclusion in The Rifter® #77. There is also an adventure setting with villains and enemy forces suitable for Heroes Unlimited™ and Ninjas and Superspies™, and other good stuff.
