This has been prepare-for-conventions week. We pulled sales stock and planned for PenguiCon (this weekend in Southfield, Michigan, where we have a booth), pulled and shipped prize support for MobiCon (10 Palladium game events, May 22-24, in Alabama), planned and prepped more for Gen Con Indy (July 30-August 2, always a lot to do for this big convention), and, of course, all kinds of things for the Palladium Open House (May 14-17, Westland, Michigan at the Palladium warehouse – it’s awesome). And when I say we have been working on conventions all week, I mean non-stop from 8:00 AM till 10:00 PM every day, with business matters and coordination of other products squeezed in between. ALL kinds of exciting stuff is going on. You will find all the details about some of it below.

Rifts® is Coming for Savage Worlds!

I accidentally created a firestorm of speculation and excitement last week when I talked about some of those behind the scenes projects under the topic of Rifts® is heating up. Particular my statement that “in an effort to truly expand Rifts® across the Megaverse®, in cooperation with Palladium Books, another role-playing game company is currently adapting the Rifts® Earth setting to that company’s RPG system of rules, as well as producing adventure sourcebooks.”

Well, this became hot news, with Bleeding Cool (a magazine I personally enjoy), breaking the news that the company is Pinnacle Entertainment Group (Deadlands RPG, Savage Worlds) and the game system will be Savage Worlds. Pinnacle followed up the Bleeding Cool announcement with this “official” press release, below. We’re delighted with the positive response to this news.

This has been a weird week in that there have been a number of highs and lows for all of us. I think the up and down weather and a heavy workload had to do with some of it. I’m glad to report that the week ended on the positive. We have a lot of irons in the fire as we work at planning and creating a wealth of products for Robotech® RPG Tactics™, Rifts®, Chaos Earth®, Splicers®, Beyond the Supernatural™ and other game lines. And on top of all that, a ton of prep work for the Palladium Open House – less than 4 weeks away! There is a lot to talk about and so much more to do. So here are what feel like the immediate highlights.
