Special Update and Heads-Up – September 11, 2012
By Kevin Siembieda
Things are really popping at Palladium Books. It has been a busy week and it’s only Tuesday!
Online sales have been strong over the weekend and at the start of the week.
We are moving forward on all fronts. The Rifter® #60 is coming along, and so are Robotech® Genesis Pits Sourcebook and other books.
Art for Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook is in and is nice. Matthew Clements and others are supplying new ideas for my consideration for that title.
I have made some major moves on the Robotech® front regarding RPG game pieces and a Robotech® Tactical Role-Playing Game. Very exciting. I can’t reveal details yet, but Robotech® fans will go wild a few months from now when I can start revealing details.
I put in half the time I had expected to on Robotech® Genesis Pits Sourcebook over the weekend, so, as you might expect, I got half as much done. Still, the book is looking great.
Local Gaming Events of Note
I want to let gamers know about the following upcoming gaming events. This first one, BarbeCon, sounds very cool. Obviously, this applies mostly to gamers in Michigan and the neighboring states, but take a look at what appears to be a very cool con.
BarbeCon 2012 – Saturday, September 15, from 8 AM to 8 PM
Independence Oaks Park – at the Twin Chimneys Pavilion – Clarkston, Michigan (northwest of Pontiac). www.quintecons.com
Palladium pal and Game Master, Bill Korsak, and his associate Bill Lonskey, are hosting the first ever Gaming Convention and Barbeque (that we know of). And not just any barbeque. The event is being catered by local, award winning barbeque restaurants! Yummo.
- Palladium Books will be there with a table and core RPG books and recent releases.
- Wayne Smith will be there.
- Julius Rosenstein will be there.
- I have another commitment that day, but I might try to make it out to BarbeCon for a couple of hours, too.
- What about you?
BarbeCon combines all of the fun elements of a traditional 1-day convention with amazing catered barbecue, the amenities of a stunning park backdrop, the exacting event planning precision of a seasoned professional, and a few surprises.
Board games, card games, role-playing games, miniature games and surprise guests take place under two large tents – rain or shine – this Saturday, September 15, 2012.
They are looking forward to providing all attendees with a truly memorable experience. Additional details on BarbeCon can be found at www.quintecons.com.
