As I write this Update we are immersed in the final layout of the Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook. That’s right, the writing and editing is done and the book is two-thirds of the way through final layout. Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook will be completely laid out and the digital files sent shortly. Oh, and if you haven’t placed an order for this book yet, you should. It is epic and you’ll love it. (Hmmm, is that mind control working yet?)

UPDATE: Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook

Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook will be in the printer’s hands first thing Friday morning – digital files will be sent soon. Since everyone has waited so long for this sourcebook, I decided to increase the page count to 176 pages at no additional cost to you. And here is more good news, the printer has agreed to put a rush order in for it. The book will ship April 12, 2012.

UPDATE: Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook Sneak Preview to be made available on DriveThruRPG.com any day now

We’ll try to get the FREE Sneak Preview of Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook posted this weekend, but with Easter being this weekend and us all rather blurry-eyed, it might not be made available till early next week. Watch for it, because it will be fun. There are Sneak Previews available for a growing number of popular Palladium titles, including Rifts® Vampire Kingdoms™ Revised, Rifts® Black Market, Rifts® Lemuria, Dead Reign™ RPG, Endless Dead™ sourcebook and others.

For those of you who may be interested in the original Rifts® Vampire Kingdoms World Book, we have recently made the original book available as a PDF on DriveThruRPG.com.

DriveThruRPG.com is also your place to get PDFs of older product and sneak previews of upcoming books. Many back issues of The Rifter® are available on DriveThruRPG.com (issues #1-52), as are more than 90 out of print titles such as Rifts®, BTS™ and Palladium Fantasy® first edition rule books and sourcebooks. A sneak preview of Rifts® Northern Gun™ One should also be coming in a few weeks. We have not forgotten about the PDF only editions of The Rifter® #0.1 and The Rifter® #0.2 – both are big, juicy digital editions of new, fan created material for the Palladium Megaverse® of games.

DriveThruRPG.com also offers the Rifts® and Palladium Fantasy® Game Master Kits ($5 each; both written by Carl Gleba and complete with maps, combat matrix, character sheets, spell list, and 20 pre-rolled characters created by Julius Rosenstein). Of course, there are FREE Sneak Previews of Endless Dead™, Rifts® Black Market, Rifts® Lemuria, Rifts® Vampire Kingdoms™ Revised, and Thundercloud Galaxy™, as well as 90+ out of print titles, including back issues of The Rifter®, and first edition rule books for Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy RPG®, Heroes Unlimited™, The Mechanoid Invasion® Trilogy, and lots of other good things. ALL available as PDF downloads at reasonable prices. And there is MORE to come.

What’s next?

Wayne will be diving into The Rifter® #62 and I’ll be working on Northern Gun™ One. After that, Northern Gun™ Two, Megaverse® in Flames and Robotech® UEEF Marines, setting up spring and summer 2013 to be the most exciting in years.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #62

The Rifter® #62 is being put together right now. It will be released the end of April, rather than early or mid-April this time around. Watch for additional Rifts® Vampires source material and other good stuff.

UPDATE: Northern Gun One and Two

I’ve never really stopped working on Northern Gun One and Two. I’ve been coordinating with artists and developing ideas and written material for the two books since we announced them. Ben Rodriguez has turned in his robot art and has taken on a bit more. Mark Dudley’s robot designs rock and he’ll be finished next week. So will Brian and Allen Manning. A few pieces have to be redone, but other than that, I believe 90% of the art is finished and I will be working on the final writing and edits.

These two books are going to knock your socks off. Palladium continues to be on a creative hot streak with everyone working on Rifts® Vampires Sourcebook, Northern Gun™, Megaverse® in Flames and, well, everything, and knocking their contributions out of the ballpark. Be they artists, writers or folks offering up ideas, we are seeing imaginative and powerful work. You will be very pleased.

UPDATE: Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames

Nick Bradshaw and Amy L. Ashbaugh are already fast at work on Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames and I need to assign out more, soon. 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

This has been a massive undertaking, but all the pieces are falling into place and looking great. Retailers and distributors at the GAMA Trade Show went wild over the expanding Robotech® RPG universe with the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ line of game pieces and new rules sets. They loved everything they saw and heard and can hardly wait for them to go to press. Us too. I’m happy to report that every sculpture for a new game piece continues to seem better than the last. The sculpts for the Zentraedi game pieces are starting to come in now and all are gorgeous. The Officer Pod, in particular, impressed me. Rules are getting tightened up and perfected as well. Like I said, EVERYONE involved with producing Palladium products is on a creative tear and producing fabulous work.

The Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Kickstarter has been rescheduled to start mid-April. Oh, and save up your money. I was talking to an old pal who is a Robotech® fan and RPGer. Though he hasn’t gamed much in a number of years, he’s very interested in Robotech® RPG Tactics™ and the game pieces. He had put aside $200 for the Kickstarter, but after hearing what all was going to be offered, he said he would be spending double or triple that amount. Yikes, but that’s how many exciting levels of participation there will be and items Robotech® fans will want. Fair warning. :)

Here is a link to a video interview with Ninja Division at GAMA. It was posted by an attendee. The sound quality is terrible, but discernible, and the visuals are exciting. Enjoy.

Robotech® RPGs available in Europe

Remember, Robotech® RPG products are now available throughout Europe as well as Canada and the United States.

Closing thoughts

Our heartfelt appreciation for your patience waiting for new RPG releases from Palladium Books. I know the wait seems like forever, but new titles should be coming at a good pace now, and we think you’ll be very pleased with the end results.

For those of you who celebrate Easter, enjoy your weekend with friends and family. We’re finally getting out of the deep freeze with temperatures hitting the 50 degrees Fahrenheit mark, so we are all looking forward to that. Take care and keep those beautiful imaginations burning bright.
