It has been wonderful to be able to devote the week almost entirely to writing, the weekend too. And because I’m so hot writing I’m going to keep this Update short and to the point so I can get back to it. ;)

UPDATE: Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook

Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook is rapidly approaching completion. Finally. Wayne has started typesetting and plotting initial layout. I’m working as fast as I can to finish the back part of the book.

I’m loving Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook and I think you will too. It is filled with so much useful material that even I can barely believe it. There are new weapons and magic, new O.C.C.s and R.C.C.s, new werebeasts, old friends like Doc Reid and the Original Eight Rangers (all brought up to date) and tons of new information about them, Fort Reid, Tampico, the Yucatan, and other people, places and monsters. I have really been enjoying writing the updates and adding so much new material to what is some of my favorite Rifts® material ever.

And the ideas — whew – everybody who has worked on this book, from Matthew Clements and Braden Campbell to Chris Kluge and myself, has been on fire. Even folks like T.G. Moore, Chuck Walton and Mark Dudley who offered a few bits of text or some cool suggestions have made some excellent contributions. I could go on like this for paragraphs, but you’ll be seeing the Sneak Preview on DriveThruRPG.com and the actual book soon enough. For more of my personal thoughts and ramblings of joy about Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook, read my Murmur from the Megaverse® entitled, Mini-Update March 19, 2013. See the new, revised description.

UPDATE: Northern Gun One and Two

As you know, the last several months I have been working on many projects, including nursing these two books along in the background. I’ve been working on concepts, working with artists, and doing some editing, organizing and writing tweaks. Final art is starting to come in and is looking fantastic. Art for Northern Gun™ One weapons, robots, drones, O.C.C.s, and so on should be pouring in over the next week. In addition to the work of Chuck Walton, we are seeing art by Mark Dudley, Allen Manning, Brian Manning, Ben Rodriguez, Kent Burles, and Tanya Ramsey. It should all come in just in time for me to dive into the final edit/writing of this book. With so much already done, I anticipate final editing and tweaks to go very quickly.

Shortly after the artists are done with this art assignment, I’ll be assigning them the art for Northern Gun™ Two. Both books are going to continue to expand your view of Rifts® North America.

UPDATE: Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames

Nick Bradshaw and Amy L. Ashbaugh are already fast at work on Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames. This is another book that is going to wow, surprise and please Rifts® fans. If Vampires Sourcebook and Northern Gun™ One and Two are going to expand your view of the world, Megaverse® in Flames is going to blow it away. ‘Nuff said for now.

Robotech RPG Tactics

UPDATE: Robotech® RPG Tactics

The prototypes on display at the GAMA Trade Show (Ninja Division booth) should be blowing people away even as you read this. Meanwhile, work continues to move at a rapid pace on all other fronts for this exciting and expanding game line. Every sculpture for a new game piece that is coming in seems better than the last. All are gorgeous. The box cover is being painted, and interior art and writing is underway as play-testers submit their comments on the latest version of the fast, fun tactical rules.
