GrandCon was a blast. We met and gamed with some awesome Palladium fans, I got to play Rifts® for Savage Worlds® with the head writer for the game line, Sean Patrick Fannon, and enjoyed a nice, working weekend. More on the fun and games at GrandCon later in this Update. All of us have returned from GrandCon energized and have been pounding away on books. The Rifter® #75 is an outstanding issue and going to the printer next week. Work has begun on The Rifter® #76, and work on other titles is coming along nicely. Hell Followed, a 160 page sourcebook for Dead Reign® is next, with several Rifts® titles hot on its tail. The Rifts® Poker deck remains a strong seller, the Raw Preview Edition of Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans™ is sold out, the Raw Edition of Rifts® Sovietski is down to the last couple dozen copies, and we are pumped about books coming your way in the weeks ahead. Read on and enjoy.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #75 – “official” source material – October release

The Rifter® #75 is epic, nearly finished and going to the printer next week. That means an early October release. Much of this issue is “official” source material that we think you will love. As I said in the last Update, I think it contains some of the best writing ever by Carl Gleba and myself on the subject of running Rifts® (or any RPG, really), creating settings and Game Mastery. In addition to the Rifts® adventure and gaming advice of that article, there is Greg Diaczyk’s source material about a new type of Elemental being, and Chuck, Chris, Todd and Lance’s continuing Splicers®: I am Legion adventure and source material about this new threat and her army of killing machines. And all that stuff is “official” source material. Ah, but that’s not all; The Rifter® #75 also showcases Rifts® for Savage Worlds, presents actual pages and talks about how it all came together.

Yep, it’s the Weekly Update a day or two early. Why? Because most of us will be at GrandCon this weekend running games, talking about Rifts®, Robotech® and Rifts® for Savage Worlds®. Yeah, I’m running three games starting at 10 AM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All proceeds go to charity. At least two will be Lord DeSilca, though I will have a BTS game ready for the group that wants to switch up. Speaking of conventions, Wayne and Chuck were at the Alliance Open House last weekend which went very well, as did my local event. Here is the latest.

GrandCon – Grand Rapids, Michigan – September 16, 17 & 18, 2016

GrandCon is this weekend! I (Kevin Siembieda) am one of the guests of honor along with Sean Patrick Fannon and some other people, so there will be a lot of talk about Rifts® Savage Worlds, and our own Rifts®, Robotech® and other Palladium games. I’m running three charity gaming events ($5 per person) and can accommodate 10 people per game. Lord DeSilca tournaments are always a crowd pleaser and I love running them, but I may run one Beyond the Supernatural™ game for the group that wants supernatural horror rather than fantasy.

When I’m not running games, Chuck Walton II, Wayne Smith and I will be at the Palladium Books booth where we’ll have the Rifts® Poker Decks, Robotech®, Rifts® Heroes of Humanity, Sovietski, two of the last three copies of Rifts® Atlanteans (put aside special for this convention) and a good selection of game books for sale. Oh, and Chuck Walton is bringing a pile of his original art for sale, too. Sean Patrick Fannon is running a few games and may hang out at our booth from time to time. We are all available to chat, sign books and have fun. The van is already loaded up and we are raring to go. Very much looking forward to hanging with Sean and meeting the GrandCon folks.

From everything I hear, GrandCon is a rapidly expanding game and comic book convention that is growing by leaps and bounds. I believe they are expecting 3,000-4,000 people to attend this year. And it is right here in Grand Rapids, Michigan! I hope to see fans from across Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and maybe even Wisconsin and eastern Iowa. Come on down to join the fun.
