I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving weekend was a nice one. I did a little Thursday night and Black Friday shopping, and then it was a very long weekend of working with Wayne Smith to get the 224 page, double-sized issue of The Rifter® #71-72 finished and sent off to the printer. All of us were here. Wayne doing typesetting, layout and last minute editing, Chuck putting the finishing touches on his artwork for the Splicers® adventure and source material, Julius doing proofreading, Alex pitching in where he could and working on other fronts, and me helping with layout, putting in corrections, and finishing my writing contributions to the issue. I think The Rifter® #71-72 is a really fun read with a wide variety of gaming material you will enjoy. It was not the most fun way to spend the holiday weekend, and talk about long hours, but we are happy that it is at the printer and will ship before Christmas. See complete details below.

UPDATE: Rifts® Chaos Earth® Resurrection – Available now

Chaos Earth® Resurrection is on its way to those of you who pre-ordered, and has already made its way into a few Christmas Surprise Packages. The book has also shipped to Distributors so it should be hitting the shelves of your favorite stores in a week or two. Great book. Freelancer Ben Rodriguez went wild over it, and he had already seen the proofreader copy. It is one heck of an adventure sourcebook. You can go to DriveThruRPG.com to see a couple of FREE Chaos Earth® Resurrection™ previews, but they don’t do the entire book justice. FYI: Chaos Earth® Resurrection™ is available to request on your Christmas Surprise Package wish list.

UPDATE! The Rifter® #71 & 72 Double Issue – 224 pages – ships December 18

The Rifter® #71 & 72 Double Issue went to the printer at the beginning of the week. I approved the printer’s digital proof Thursday afternoon. Another great couple of issues. In fact, Julius still contends The Rifter® #71-72 is one of the best issues of The Rifter® ever. It is pretty sweet, with a bunch of official game material and a few little surprises. (I hope.) The printer confirmed a ship date of December 18, 2015. I know it has been a long wait to get these two issues, but I think it will have been worth it. 224 pages of adventure, ideas for adventures, and fun. See the new description of the book elsewhere in this update.

Hi Everyone,

A few quick things.

One, Rifts® Chaos Earth® Resurrection is done and ships tomorrow

Wednesday, December 2. We’ve seen the finished printed book and it is a beauty. You guys will love it. Chaos Earth® Resurrection™ is available for order now, and can be requested in Christmas Surprise Packages.

Two, The Rifter® #71 & #72 Double Issue is done and at the printer!

If Julius Rosenstein is any indication, you are going to love it too! Sixty pages into proofreading the book, Julius said to me, “Kev, if the rest of this issue is even half as good as the first 60, this might be the best issue of The Rifter® since ... since ... uh, maybe the best issue ever.” I don’t know if I’d go that far, but it is full of fun material. I don’t know when it will ship yet, probably around December 18, 2015. The Rifter® #71 & #72 Double Issue is available for PRE-Order now, and can be requested in Christmas Surprise Packages, but it may delay their shipping.

Three, Palladium’s Black Friday/Cyber-Monday Weekend Sale Ends at noon on Wednesday, December 2, 2015

We forgot to take the sale down at midnight on Monday, and we’ve had a few last minute shoppers ask if we would extend it for one more day, so here you go. This sale is extended till noon Wednesday.

Robotech® Exclusives – Available to Everyone during this sale. Normally available only at conventions and to our Kickstarter backers, we are making the 2015 Robotech® RPG Tactics™ EXCLUSIVES available during this special sale, which ends on noon, December 2. These are dynamic, easy to build (4-9 pieces per figure) figures that look great. Get ‘em while you can.

Four, only 3½ weeks till Christmas and time is running out to order your Palladium Christmas Surprise Package – the best deal in gaming – Offer ends December 24, 2015

Less time to order than that, when you factor in shipping and if you need it before Christmas Day. Then you probably need to order by December 16th.

If you want your Surprise Package in time for Christmas, YOU NEED TO ORDER in the NEXT 2 WEEKS! When those of you in the USA and Canada order in the next two weeks, you are guaranteed to get your Christmas Surprise Packages in time for the holiday – and without having to pay for a better, faster method of shipping!

Happy Holidays

We hope you enjoyed a very pleasant Thanksgiving weekend.

Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends and gamers. May the holiday be filled with light and joy.

That’s all for now. More in the Thursday Weekly Update.
