It has been a busy week. We've been playing catch-up on several fronts and moving a number of products further along toward final production. We've also been prepping for Penguicon (it is this weekend), so let us start with that. Please note the CORRECT times of my panel talks in this week’s Update.

Meet Kevin Siembieda at Penguicon, Southfield, Michigan – May 2-4, 2014 – also hang with artists Charles Walton and Jeff Burke, and other Palladium staff

I am one of the featured guests at Penquicon this weekend, May 2-4, at the Westin Hotel in Southfield, Michigan. Palladium will be there with a table of select products, and Chuck Walton will have a table of his own where he’ll be selling original art and doing convention sketches. I will be present every day, all day long, till about 8:00 PM or so. Come on down to visit with me (Kevin Siembieda), Chuck Walton, Jeff Burke, Alex Marciniszyn and Julius Rosenstein. We’ll also be showing off Robotech® RPG Tactics™ prototype game pieces and the rule book, as well as a photocopy of Rifts® Northern Gun™ Two.

Here are my four panel events with the *correct* times:

  • Hollywood and Licensing (Friday, 7:00 PM) – an insider’s perspective.
  • How to Be the Best G.M. (Saturday 1:00 PM) – tips on how to make your gaming sessions fast paced and memorable.
  • World Building (Saturday at 5:00 PM) – the best tips on making a unique and sensational game setting.
  • Pen and Paper Game Design (Sunday at 1:00 PM) – tap my mind on ways to design your own games for publication or just for fun.

The rest of the time I’ll be hanging at the Palladium booth and participating in a few other panel talks and convention events, most of the day and into the evening. These small conventions are always fun because we are able to spend more time chatting with our fans. So come on down and hang for a while with the Palladium crew.

Penguicon is a not-for-profit, community-run convention for diverse tastes – open source software, science fiction, music, gaming, DIY, and more. There will a masquerade contest, music, lots of fun panels and seminars, a dealers’ room and other good stuff. Check out the website and come on over to join the fun.

Yeow, has it ever been busy the last six weeks, and pretty much without a break for any of us. We’re all feeling quite worn out, so I’m going to get right to the meat of this week’s Update.

UPDATE: Rifts® Northern Gun Two is DONE

Rifts® Northern Gun™ Two is done! The printer will give us a ship date next week, but I’m guessing May 23 for the mass market softcover and June 10 for the Megaverse Insider hardcover. After six weeks of seemingly endless additions (the equivalent of an entire, second 160 page book!), I’m quite convinced I am, indeed, a crazy gaming geek. That said, I think Rifts® gamers will go wild over the fun vehicles and information in this massive 256 page toy box. The biggest book of fully described “vehicles and equipment” we have ever done! Gear heads and technophiles rejoice.
