By Kevin Siembieda

I feel like I have been running around like a wild man these past few weeks. I’m continue to juggle several projects, and there are many exciting things going on in the areas of new product and behind the scenes. All projects from Rifts® to Robotech® are moving forward, but it feels like a non-stop whirlwind over here, and we’re still behind where we want to be with releases. I guess I long for the day Palladium can add a few people to the staff. Read on.

UPDATE: Online Sales

Online sales have been strong and exactly where we want to see our numbers. Sales have been bolstered, in part, by the release of the Rifts® Black Market Gold Hardcover, but have been good across the board for several game lines, including Dead Reign™, Nightbane®, Robotech®, Heroes Unlimited™ and, of course, Rifts®. What is especially encouraging is that it is the month of September, during which sales are historically soft to terrible, so this is very nice to see. Very nice.

UPDATE: Rifts® Black Market Hardcover “Gold Contraband” Edition

Folks are loving the Rifts® Black Market Gold Hardcover. I’m glad my surprise has been well received. It is a very limited, signed and numbered printing of only 250 copies and destined to be a valued collectible. That is the lowest number we have ever printed of a Gold Edition. 250 copies, 8 signatures and an awesome cover for $60. Sold on a first come, first served basis, in the sequence in which they are ordered.

UPDATE: Rifts® Black Market Softcover

What caught me by surprise was increased sales of the Rifts® Black Market “softcover,” which have shot up. I think positive word of mouth about the array of fun and useful material it contains is helping to keep the excitement going and the good buzz alive. Thanks for the positive chatter and purchases. Game on!

UPDATE: The Rifter® #60

All the material has been gathered, Alex has given it an initial edit, Wayne is working on his edit, and the artwork is all coming in. As I’ve said, this is another excellent issue. It should go to the printer by the end of next week and see release around October 12, 2012. I still have contracts to mail out.

UPDATE: Robotech® Genesis Pits Sourcebook

Despite my plans and best efforts, I’m still working on the final edits and tweaks of the last third of Robotech® Genesis Pits™ Sourcebook. My time and attention continues to be divided to keep several books and projects progressing. I hesitate to reveal too much, before we get approval on much of the new material, but assuming approvals go well: Wow, this book is going to make Robotech fans happy. Fun source material, new insight, creation and encounter tables, new monsters, mutants and ideas for adventure.

UPDATE: Robotech® Tactical Role-Playing Game

Things have been quiet on that front this week, though I did have a conversation about the project with Tommy Yune last Friday, and I expect to have another one today or tomorrow. I can’t reveal details yet, but I can say Palladium is looking to surprise and impress fans with the level of quality of the game pieces and scope of the game. Robotech® fans should go wild when I can start revealing details in a month or two.

UPDATE: Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook

When I finish Robotech® Genesis Pits, I jump into Vampires with both feet. I can hardly wait. The book has been growing and changing as Matthew Clements and Chris Kluge supply me with new ideas and text for consideration. It’s all excellent and you will love this book. As soon as I’m done working on Robotech® Genesis Pits Sourcebook I’m all over Vampires!

UPDATE: Rifts® Northern Gun One and Two

Chuck Walton is working away on art and it is marvelous. If you thought his work in Rifts® Lemuria was great, I think his tech designs are even more impressive. You can think of the two Rifts® Northern Gun books as Rifts® Black Market on steroids.

UPDATE: Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames

I want this book out by the end of the year and will do my best to make it happen. This is an epic book that will provide ample new avenues of adventure and change the face of Rifts Earth and the Coalition States!

UPDATE: Kevin’s Online Toy & Collectibles Store

Alex and I have added a few new Palladium collectibles to my online store and will continue to add items from time to time. There are no more than five Rifts® Lemuria Emerald Editions earmarked for the store and other items such as the Rifts® Machinations of Doom Gold Hardcover, Rifts® RPG Silver hardcovers, BTS Gold, Rifts® Ultimate Gold, Erick Wujcik’s Amberzine #11, etc. are also in short supply. In most cases, I have only a dozen or less to offer. That’s why we continue to dole them out one at a time. Once they are sold out, of course, they are GONE! Other collectibles include first printings of books, signed books, “proofreader” copies of books (a couple more coming your way soon), original artwork, and other collectible odds and ends.

There are also a large number of collectible toys and action figures in my online store. All are from my personal collection. More toys and collectibles are added on a weekly basis.

ODDS & ENDS

I actually took part of last the weekend off for the second week in a row. I worke on the chop-shop and laboratory Halloween display at Kathy’s and it turned out great, too. Perhaps the best display I’ve ever done. Kathy and I love Halloween, so it was a nice break from the usual routine. Not only that, but even that little bit of time off rejuvenated my creative juices. This weekend we’ll be working. Wayne and I will be at the Alliance Open House Friday and Saturday. It is always a good venue to meet retailers, get input and talk business, and we are looking forward to the event.

I have been a bit remiss in posting my daily Murmurs from the Megaverse® and Facebook comments because it has been a crazy week. Heck, I still have a few emails and numerous Private Messages I need to respond to, not to mention calls to several dozen people from the crowdfundings earlier this year. Gah. Don’t worry, I will continue to post as frequently as possible and try to step up my postings again. Enjoy the Rifts® Black Market Gold Contraband Edition and the last few days of summer before they are gone. I don’t know about where you live, but the days are getting short and much cooler. Game on.

Palladium Convention Calendar

Over the next seven weeks, Palladium and various staff members will be making appearances and selling product at various gaming events. We sent out a special email last week to let folks know about some of these events, but here’s a more complete listing. Come on over and join the fun.

Alliance Open House – September 21-23 – Fort Wayne, Indiana

This is a retailer trade show sponsored by Palladium’s largest distributor, Alliance. We’ll only be onsite Saturday in the Exhibit Hall to chat with retailers, tell them about upcoming releases and sign autographs. Wayne Smith and I (Kevin Siembieda) will be manning the booth. It’s always a worthwhile experience.

ConGregate Game Convention – October 6, 2012 – Livonia, Michigan

Timothy Lutheran Church
8820 Wayne Road
Livonia, MI 48150
10:00 A.M to 11:00 P.M.

Julius Rosenstein and Palladium pal and G.M., Jim Cross, will be running Palladium gaming events. Jim is also the convention organizer. There will be all kinds of fun gaming events. I’m sure I’ll pop in at least briefly considering its just down the road from the Palladium Office.

YoumaCon – November 1-4 – Detroit, Michigan

www.youmacon.com

This a rapidly exploding anime convention the could have 15,000+ people this year. It includes a wide range of amazing costumes, guests, events, cosplay, gaming and multi-media fun.

Palladium Books will be exhibiting in the dealers’ room and we’ll have members of the Palladium staff and other maniacs at the booth, including me (Kevin Siembieda), Wayne Smith, Alex Marciniszyn, Julius Rosenstein, Chuck Walton and maybe a few other Palladium madmen. Artist Ben Rodriguez will be there too, but he’ll have his own booth. It all happens at Cobo Hall, downtown Detroit, near the waterfront. Join the fun.

Anime North – May 24-26, 2013 – Toronto, Canada

Speaking of which, have I mentioned that I will be one of the guests at Anime North in Toronto next year? Well, I will. The event takes place Memorial Day weekend, May 24-26, 2013. This will be my first time back at a convention in Canada in something like 15 years. Too long. www.animenorth.com

Gen Con® Indy – August 15-18, 2013 – Indianapolis, Indiana

Oh yeah, we can hardly wait for Gen Con next year. We may even need to expand the size of our booth.

Note: No Palladium Open House in 2013 and right now, there are no plans for one in 2014.
