By Kevin Siembieda

This has been an action-packed week. We are in high gear working to release at least four new book by Gen Gen Indy. I’ve been busy writing two books simultaneously: Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook and Rifts® Black Market, while assigning artwork and coordinating work on several others.

UPDATE: Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook

The writing on this book is shaping up nicely, and the ideas . . . you’ll love ‘em. The new material for Reid’s Rangers, Fort Reid, Camazotz and the Yucatan, werebeasts, hunters of Vampire Hunters, Erin Tarn and all the rest, will make gamers tremble. I’ve got Nick Bradshaw and Mark Dudley working on additional art. A July release!

UPDATE: Rifts® Black Market

This great book is packed with source material that may make some guys squeal with delight like little children. When I’m not working on Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook I have been working on Rifts® Black Market. Just yesterday, after I did work on the Vampire Hunters and Doc Reid section, I spent five hours going over Black Market O.C.C.s, the special abilities of Black Marketeers and the section on Black Market jobs. Earlier that day I met with Carmen Bellaire, who is writing up an armory of Bandito Arms weapons and gear. I then met with Julius Rosenstein who is wrapping up his writing of five Black Market O.C.C.s. Much like Rifts® Lemuria, I think the Black Market sourcebook contains a wealth of new data, ideas and source material that will make you say “wow.” That’s why we had to increase the page count. And, I might add, much of the material can be adapted to other game settings. I sent art assignments to Mike Mumah and Amy L. Ashbaugh for Rifts® Black Market earlier this week, spoke with both, and I’m ramping up to send the second batch out to them and other artists on Monday. Black Market will be a July release if it kills me!

UPDATE: The Rifter® #59

Wayne Smith and Alex Marciniszyn are fast at work editing the fun contributions to this issue of The Rifter®. I’ve assigned the artwork and sent agreements out to contributors a few days ago. In fact, I met with one of the artists this morning to provide him with some reference material. This is another great issue with material for Splicers® with Chuck Walton art, Rifts® Xiticix with Ben Rodriguez art, Techno-Wizardry across the Megaverse®, the second half of the Kezel for Heroes Unlimited™ and more. See the full description for it elsewhere in this Weekly Update. A July release!

UPDATE: Rifts® Northern Gun One

This is “part one” of a big project that, when combined with Rifts® Black Market, Northern Gun™ Two, Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook and Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames, is going to expand and transform the range of adventures across the North American landscape. The full magnitude of this combination of books will not be known until you see them. And as if that were not enough to get your hearts pumping – there are plans for Rifts® Lazlo as an early 2013 release (a book I have been secretly working to get into development for the last two years). Meanwhile, Charles Walton has been busy busting out more awe-inspiring artwork for NG-1. August release – in time for Gen Con. At least that’s the plan.

Northern Gun™ One Hardcover. You have only this last weekend to order your Northern Gun™ One hardcover, NG-1 collector’s hardcover and PDF, as they are only available via the Northern Gun™ crowdfuning offer. And it ends on Monday, June 25, 2012.

UPDATE: Northern Gun Two

Northern Gun™ Two is the power-packed part two of the Northern Gun pair of World Books that will complete the picture of Northern Gun and fill in the details of an important force in the North American setting. Chuck Walton should blow us away with more art for this title when we meet Friday afternoon.

UPDATE: Online Sales

With the Northern Gun ONE Megaverse® Insider crowdfunding offer creating buzz and excitement, sales across the board have been very good. Please, keep ‘em coming. And don’t overlook the nifty bookmarks, Chi-Town Library pencils, T-shirts and mugs. Rifts® Lemuria and Endless Dead™, along with Rifts® titles, Heroes Unlimited™ and Palladium Fantasy® in general, are seeing a lot of interest.

LAST FOUR DAYS to get your exclusive Rifts® Northern Gun ONE crowdfunding items

The Northern Gun™ One hardcover, Collector’s Hardcover, PDF, and other items and services exclusive to the Northern Gun™ One crowdfunding offer are only available till Monday, June 25, 2012. This is your last few days to place your order for the limited time offer of the NG-1 hardcover, NG-1 Collector’s hardcover, PDF edition and other offers. NOTE: This current offer and next month’s Northern Gun™ TWO Megaverse Insider crowdfunding offer are the last two planned for this year. This one ends June 25, 2012.

The value of crowdfunding. Crowdfunding gives Palladium Books a boost and the ability to release books with superior production value, and helps us develop other titles, do more reprints, advertising, reduce our debt load, and engage in other efforts to make Palladium strong. In fact, I paid down a big chunk of debt just this week, much of it going to Palladium’s talented writers and artists.

Your participation is welcomed and appreciated, but please, do NOT overextend yourselves. Purchase only the Megaverse Insider items you want and what you can afford. NOTE: The special items like art prints that the higher levels of participation receive are NOT the same as those in the Lemuria Megaverse® Insider offer; they are completely new and different. How else would they be special? Each new offer will always be something new and special, unless stated otherwise.

The Rifts® Northern Gun™ ONE Megaverse® Insider crowdfunding ENDS on MONDAY, June 25, 2012. This deadline will NOT be extended. (IMPORTANT: The Rifts® Northern Gun™ 1 & 2 crowdfunding offers are the LAST TWO for this year. Enjoy.)

Crowdfunding fun fact. It seems like every time I turn around, I’m reading or hearing something new about crowdfunding. I was surprised to learn people are even going on line to crowdfund medical procedures and surgeries at websites like YouCaring.com, GiveForward.com and fundly.com. Wow. It is wild how fast this idea is going mainstream and being used by everyday folks as well as businesses.

UPDATE: Available on DriveThruRPG.com

The Rifter® #49-52 are available on DriveThruRPG.com (issues #1-52). Sneak previews of Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook and Rifts® Black Market should be coming soon. We plan to add a few more items in the coming months that should please Palladium gamers. We are also continuing to move forward with plans for the PDF only editions of The Rifter® #0.1 and The Rifter® #0.2 – both are big, juicy digital editions of new, fan created material for the Palladium Megaverse® of games.

Don’t forget, DriveThruRPG.com also offers the Rifts® and Palladium Fantasy® Game Master Kits (both written by Carl Gleba and complete with maps, combat matrix, character sheets, spell list, and 20 pre-rolled characters created by Julius Rosenstein; $5 each), and FREE Sneak Previews of Endless Dead™, Rifts® Lemuria, Rifts® Vampire Kingdoms™, and Thundercloud Galaxy™, as well as 90+ back stock titles, including back issues of The Rifter®, and first edition rule books for Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy RPG®, Heroes Unlimited™, The Mechanoid Invasion® Trilogy, and lots of other good things. ALL available as PDF downloads at reasonable prices. And there is MORE to come.

UPDATE: Kevin’s Online Toy & Collectibles Store

Alex and I continue to add Palladium collectibles as well as a large number of collectible toys and action figures to my online store. More will be added all weekend long as well as more new items every few days for the next several weeks. Right now they include proofreader copies of books, Palladium gold editions, some artwork, some art prints, and other good stuff. Most Palladium items are signed by me, Alex and other Palladium creators. We’ll keep them coming if you keep buying them. http://stores.ebay.com/kevinstoys-artandcollectibles

Big Things Boiling?

The above are just the highlights of the week and things I thought you’d enjoy hearing about. Here’s some more. There is a lot boiling behind the scenes. Palladium’s agent, Mark Freedman of Surge Licensing, represented Rifts® and Palladium Books® at the Licensing Show in Las Vegas last week. Monday morning, I get a call from Mark shortly after he got off the Red-Eye. He was too wired to go to sleep and wanted to touch base with me. The call started something like this: “Kevin, it was unbelievable how many people know and love Rifts®.” What comes next? Hopefully follow-up telephone calls and licensing deals with several potential licensors who expressed interest at the event.

Meanwhile, new book projects for 2013 are already being started. I’m looking into expanding the range of Palladium’s Robotech® license with Harmony Gold, we’re planning advertising and promotion, agreeing to convention appearances for next year already and making plans for Gen Con in August. I have been recently contacted by a few other creative types about other possible Rifts® and Nightbane® projects for development into different mediums. Film, television and videogames are all high on our agenda, but we’ll consider everything and are looking for licensing partners on all fronts. One talented gamer is looking into doing a Rifts® Character Generator, another is working on one for Heroes Unlimited, and I recently fielded a call about possible Facebook game development. ALL of this stuff is exciting, but in its infancy and may go nowhere. Still, it’s nice to see so much interest in Palladium’s intellectual properties. Oh yeah, our Gen Con e-mail blast to 70,000 gamers should go out today, and I’ll be working on some advertisements later today. Then it’s back to writing books.

That’s the news and updates for this week. I’ll be working through the weekend on Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook and Rifts® Black Market, stopping only to call the last few remaining Lemuria Benefactors and Ultimate Insiders (some of you are hard to get hold of).

We’re excited about new releases and future possibilities. I hope you are too.

– Kevin Siembieda, Publisher, Writer and Insider
