It has been another action-packed week. We have all been incredibly busy working on finishing books and other things. I worked the weekend while Wayne was off having fun in Northen Michigan (a much deserved long weekend with his sweetheart), and though I have been writing up a storm, I have also been working on and plotting many things for the future.

To our surprise, Julius found an entire case of the Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans and Rifts® Sovietski Raw Preview Editions while conducting a routine inventory. Apparently, someone had put a case of each aside where they didn’t belong and forgot about them. The good news is there are 28 copies of Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans Raw Preview Edition available again, while supplies last. Which won’t be long. A lot of people were disappointed that the book sold out so quickly, and should be happy to get another chance to purchase one or both Preview Editions. Remember, we only printed 150 copies of the Rifts® Sovietski and Secrets of the Atlanteans Raw Preview Editions, so get them while you can.

Hollywood took some of my time this week as we work toward a possible option for one of Palladium’s I.P.s (not Rifts®). That would make three intellectual properties Hollywood film makers are thinking about developing for film or television. I cannot yet announce which I.P.s they are, but this particular one seems especially promising. After my conversation with the producer Thursday afternoon, he and I both ended the call fired up and excited about the prospect of working together. Awesome. Meanwhile, I have another associate shopping around a few other Palladium I.P.s. I’m happy to say we are getting inquires from a number of companies about developing Palladium properties for new mediums. I just hope one or two of them make it from concept to the big screen or as a videogame. Our fingers are crossed.

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.
