My thanks to the multitude of friends, fans and associates who have been sending me birthday wishes all day long. Funny, I don’t feel any older. lol.
As I write this, high winds and a thunderstorm are washing over us. The lights have flickered several times, so I hope we don’t lose power before we send out and post this Weekly Update. We continue to work at a frenzied pace on many fronts, including Robotech® RPG Tactics™ developments, Rifts®, the Palladium Open House and many, many other things. Sales have been strong this week, with orders for Bizantium and the Northern Islands™, The Rifter® #69, the Robotech® Dice Bag, and pre-orders for a variety of upcoming titles coming in at a good pace. We’ve also gotten several distributor orders this week for Robotech® RPG Tactics™ and other Palladium game lines. But let me dive right into things.
UPDATE: Bizantium and the Northern Islands™ – Available now
Bizantium and the Northern Islands™ has shipped to everyone who has placed an order directly from Palladium Books, as well as to distributors. Initial reactions have been shock and satisfaction. This world book offers new dangers, new places to explore, new monsters and animals, new ancient and angry gods, villains, history, magic, adventure and fun. If you’re a fan of the Palladium Fantasy RPG®, you want Bizantium and the Northern Islands™. Take a look at the FREE sneak preview of it on DriveThruRPG.com for just a glimpse of this exciting 192 page book. Available now.
As I pointed out last week, author Glen Evans as well as Matthew Clements, me (Kevin Siembieda), Charles Walton, Mark Dudley, Amy L. Ashbaugh, Ben Rodriguez, Alex, Wayne, Jeff, Julius, and other contributors to this world book will be available at the Palladium Open House to sign your copy of the book and chat about creating books. But don’t stop there, bring any of your books to the POH for signing. No other convention or gaming event offers so many Palladium creators to sign books, and we are happy to do so.
