We’re all feeling positive and pleased that a number of new book titles are in final development and production. I’ve been on fire writing, and ideas are flying around like crazy.

There is a lot to talk about this Weekly Update, so please keep reading, but I’m going to start with our latest, “let’s get you gaming,” Flash Sale, with almost EVERY core rule book made available. Many titles at half price! Get ‘em while you can. Note: I think our next, and probably last, Flash Sale will celebrate Robotech® and will make, for the first time, Robotech® Convention Exclusives (at the full price of $22.00 each) available to ANYONE for those FOUR DAYS ONLY, as well as a number of Robotech® sale items.

Time to Game – Flash Sale – September 18, 19, 20 & 21, 2015 – Friday thru Monday

Summer officially ends on Tuesday, September 22. That means it’s time for games! Not just baseball season playoffs and football on TV, but role-playing and tabletop gaming.

So this weekend’s second from the last Flash Sale offers a selection of core rule books and a choice sourcebook for each to get you started. This is a great way to try a new RPG setting or replace your old, beat up books. And is it too soon to think about Christmas gifts? Not to mention birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions?

Learn one Palladium RPG and you can play them all. ALL of Palladium’s RPGs use the same basic game system, so once you master one, you can play them all.

Dead Reign® is an excellent introductory game that is easy to learn, fast to play and fun to read. If you are looking for a zombie game that truly captures the feel of survival after the apocalypse and the nightmare of being stalked by zombies, Dead Reign® is it. One of the game’s mechanics, the Zombie Moan which gathers the undead hordes, creates a real sense of escalating terror, dread and suspense. Fun stuff and one of my personal faves. Dead Reign® is more than what you might expect. Give it a try. The sourcebooks expand the world, as well as offer adventure ideas and new zombies and dangers.

The Nightbane are human beings (or are they?) linked to something ancient and supernatural, and who conceal a monster within themselves. Inhuman alter-egos that wield supernatural powers and magic abilities. And some say, powers that can fight the monsters from the Nightlands. You, in fact, could be one of them and not even know it – yet. Half price!
  • Nightbane® Survival Guide – Cat. No. 735 – $14.04 (normally $20.95 retail), four days only. Everything you want to know about Nightbane but were afraid to ask. How to unleash your potential as a Nightbane®, many new Morphus tables, many new powers, new magic and new dangers. A complete adventure plus adventure ideas, Nightbane creation guidelines, Nightbane history, psychology and more. 160 pages.
  • Beyond the Supernatural™ RPG – Cat. No. 700 – $12.48 (normally $24.95 retail), four days only.

Three new sourcebooks planned. 256 pages. Half price!

Alliance

This week started out on a much different note than most. Wayne and I drove out to Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Sunday afternoon for the Alliance Open House. Alliance Distribution is one of Palladium’s largest distributors and their open house is a way for us to meet and interact with retailers, promote product and receive valuable feedback.

This event seemed especially positive, helpful and fun. We received a lot of good feedback and made some new contacts. Alliance and retailers remain excited and supportive of Robotech® RPG Tactics™ and like many of you, are anxiously awaiting RRT Wave Two and organized play.

There was also excitement for the several new Rifts® titles coming, and renewed interest in the Heroes Unlimited™ RPG and Dead Reign® RPG series. There was a surprising amount of nostalgia for the Heroes Unlimited™ RPG and with superheroes hotter than ever, a good deal of interest in the RPG. Several retailers were also attracted to Palladium’s Dead Reign® (the Zombie Apocalypse) RPG and were pleased that the game is about survival and character driven stories, not just killing zombies.

Some new retailers were unfamiliar with Palladium RPGs (we changed that), while others were long-time fans. It drives home that if we want to support and grow Palladium Books, we and you need to spread the word about the RPGs you love. Because Palladium has been around for 30+ years, I think many of our fans assume everyone knows about us, but that’s just not true. There are plenty of gamers who have never heard of Rifts® or Heroes Unlimited™ or Palladium Books. It helps us if you talk about releases and post the covers to books or new releases you like on Facebook and elsewhere. Spread the word about the current Flash Sale and share your excitement for the game lines and new releases you enjoy. There are a number of new releases coming very soon for you to talk about.

UPDATE! The Rifter® #71 & 72 Double-Issue – 224 pages – Fall 2015

We are excited about The Rifter® #71 & 72 Double-Issue. It’s something different and somehow exciting. The combined, 224 page book (yes, there will be bonus pages) includes player and G.M. tips, along with source material for Splicers®, Palladium Fantasy®, Dead Reign®, a Rifts® short story as a prelude to the sourcebooks coming, and more. Probably an October release filled with fun.

UPDATE: Chaos Earth® Resurrection

I have been writing up a storm on Chaos Earth® Resurrection™. There is so much good stuff in it. And boy, scary too. Best of all, it has material that can be brought into the present-day Rifts® time-line as well as adapted to other settings. And fans of Chaos Earth and Glitter Boys should really enjoy this adventure sourcebook.

UPDATE: Chaos Earth® First Responders

Again, there is sooo much good stuff in this book.

UPDATE: Rifts® Coalition States: Heroes of Humanity

CS: Heroes of Humanity™ is one of the other books I have been working on. I think it will be a crowd pleaser and present plenty of opportunity for Coalition soldiers to fill the roles of heroes and despicable villains.

UPDATE: Rifts® The Disavowed

The Disavowed is one of those ideas that just came to me one day. I was talking to writer, Matthew Clements, we started spinning ideas, and the next thing I knew, a book was forming. The Disavowed reveals a power player behind the scenes of the Coalition States that will provide new avenues of intrigue and adventure. It’s someone you already know . . . or at least thought you did.

UPDATE: Secrets of the Atlanteans

I’m going to try my best to squeeze this bad boy out as quick as I can along with a few other Rifts® titles.

UPDATE: Splicers®

This has been one of the writing projects I’ve been working on. There is some exciting stuff brewing for the world of Splicers®.

UPDATE: SOLD OUT – Robotech® RPG Tactics Battle Foam Bags

We sold the last two Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Battle Foam Bags this week. If there is sufficient demand, we may consider making additional carrying cases when we release RRT Wave Two.

REMINDER: Robotech® RPG Tactics Convention Exclusives are available to Kickstarter backers ANYTIME

RRT Kickstarter backers can purchase any of the Convention Exclusives, in any quantities, while supplies last. We post this reminder because we have received a number of inquiries from Kickstarter backers asking if they can still get the RRT Convention Exclusives. The answer is yes!

To make sure shipping is calculated accurately, the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Convention Exclusives have been available only to our Kickstarter backers, but in Palladium’s regular online store (not BackerKit). Only our Kickstarter backers have (until next week’s, four day, Flash Sale) the ability to find and order these exclusive items. They are very cool and we love them.

If you are a backer and have trouble accessing the Robotech® Convention Exclusives, please contact the Palladium office via Kickstarter message, via email at kickstarter {at} palladiumbooks.com, or by telephone (734-721-2903). The exclusives are available to our Kickstarter backers at ANYTIME, in any quantity, while supplies last. All are ready to ship. All of the exclusives are of excellent quality, paint up nicely and ship to you quickly as all items are in stock.

PLEASE NOTE: The September 25-28, 2015, Robotech® Flash Sale will make the five convention exclusives available to EVERYONE for FOUR DAYS ONLY – at the full price of $22 each. So for those of you who are not Kickstarter backers, this is your chance to grab a few for yourself. Spread the word to your Robotech® pals, because each is worth having.

  1. NEW! Miriya Sterling’s Super Valkyrie in Guardian Mode. A sleek, dynamic depiction of the Super Valkyrie in Guardian mode. 1/285th scale (6mm). $22 each.
  2. NEW! Breetai ready for combat. This is General Breetai in a suit of Zentraedi Heavy Body Armor. His right hand is opened enough to place a weapon, Micronian or the severed head of a Valkyrie or other bit of wreckage inside. 1/285th scale (6mm). $22 each.
  3. NEW! Grell’s Male Power Armor. This is the nicest Male Power Armor depiction ever released near this scale. The connection at the waist requires a bit of work to fit just right, but the piece is gorgeous and paints up like a dream. Includes a Grell Malcontents character card. 1/285th scale (6mm). This is one of our favorite pieces here among the Palladium crew. $22 each.
  4. Max Sterling’s VF-1J Valkyrie in Battloid Mode: A fan favorite capable of being posed in a couple different ways. 1/285th scale (6mm). $22 each.
  5. Miriya’s Female Power Armor: Another fan favorite capable of being posed in a couple different ways. 1/285th scale (6mm). $22 each.

For instructions on how to order the exclusives (sorry, RRT Kickstarter backers only), click here.

And don’t forget about the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ game/starter set, expansion packs and other Robotech® products! Many of which will be available at a discount in the four day flash sale starting September 25, 2015. Watch for it.

UPDATE: Robotech® RPG Tactics

We continue to work on several aspects of Wave Two. More Wave Two game cards are being posted on DriveThruRPG.com with more cards, rules, paper game pieces and good stuff to come. We continue to explore ways to reduce the piece count without sacrificing quality and are considering every possibility. Meanwhile, our thoughts are also turning toward organized play as that’s something people are looking for.

More things coming your way for RRT:

  • More cards for Wave Two game pieces.
  • Force Organization Charts.
  • Stats for Conventional Combat Vehicles (pre-Robotech).
  • Expanded rules, errata, and clarifications.
  • A free set of basic rules and paper miniatures will be made available online.
  • More photos of painted minis.
  • Organized play and demo package.
  • And we’ll try to do more Kickstarter updates.

RRT Convention Exclusives: As noted above, Palladium is keeping the new Breetai, Grell in Male Power Armor and Miriya Super Valkyrie in Guardian Mode convention exclusives as well as the previous fan-faves, Max in Battloid Valkyrie and Miriya in Female Power Armor, available to our Kickstarter backers online. You may continue to place orders for yourself and friends while supplies last. All of the exclusives are of excellent quality, paint up nicely and will ship to you quickly, as all items are in stock.

Erick Wujcik Memorial at Wayne State University

This past Monday, Wayne State University honored its alumnus and my dear friend, Erick Wujcik, with a memorial wall plaque in the Student Union building near the gaming club Erick founded.

As you may recall, famed game designer Erick Wujcik passed away in 2008 from pancreatic cancer. Erick was 57 years old. His passing left a hole in my heart and affected all of us at Palladium Books. Not only was Erick a brilliant mind and wonderful person, but one of my closest and dearest friends. I think about Erick often and I feel his presence with me to this day, especially when I’m writing and plotting Palladium’s future. I loved Erick. We were as close as brothers and shared a creativity energy I have never known with anyone else. I can only think of two other people in 34 years that even come close.

I was unable to attend, because I felt I needed to attend the Alliance Trade Show. I thought about skipping the event to attend the memorial with Erick’s family and friends, but I could hear Erick saying, “Kev, Alliance is more important, you need to be there. It’s all good.” I knew that’s what Erick would want, so that’s what I did. And it was the right decision, as there were several good things that came out of the Alliance event. Besides, I keep Erick and my father, Hank, in my heart with me every day.

I’m thrilled Erick received this honor from Wayne State University and I extend my heartfelt congratulations and warmest wishes to the entire Wujcik clan – and that includes his friends around the world. I can’t think of anyone more deserving.

Matthew Clements, go west young man

The Palladium family experienced another parting, of sorts, this week. One with mixed feelings of joy and sadness. Palladium author and pal, Matthew Clements, has decided to take the plunge and move out to California. There, he hopes to find work in the videogame and/or film industry while he continues to write a trilogy of science fiction novels. Matthew and I had a great rapport writing and working together. His sharp mind, insight and creativity will be missed, but I am certain we’ll stay in touch. We also have several titles that Matt authored, co-authored or contributed to that will be coming your way in the months ahead. They include: Rifts® Antarctica, Rifts® Elemental Power, Coalition States: Heroes of Humanity, and The Disavowed. Good luck, Matt, knock ‘em dead out there. Become a killer writer in the film and video industries and finally get Rifts® made into a movie, would ya? Thanks. ;)

It’s Halloween time ...

Um, well, it is for us Halloween nuts who create what the hobby calls “haunts.” As many of you already know, Kathy Simmons and I put up a massive Halloween display with complete scenes of more than one mad doctors’ laboratory, Frankenstein, the Fly, a body chop shop, a zombie horde, a graveyard (with more zombies and skeletons), Pirates of the Carribean, Wizard of Oz, witches, wizards, Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin, and others! Last year, we put up 108 life-sized figures, most of them made by Kathy. I’m more of the set decorator, idea guy and skeleton wrangler – in sort, Igor to Kathy’s Doctor Frankenstein.

So for us Halloween crazies, September marks the beginning of the spooky season. We swoop down like vultures on stores such as Spirit Halloween, Halloween City, Party City, Target, K-Mart, Walgreens and others (as well as a number of online sites) the second they stock Halloween props on the shelves. (Note: Target has an outstanding selection of small props and skeletons, and the Spirit Halloween, smoke spewing three-headed dog . . . oh, baby.) Kathy and I have been actively planning our displays and the additions we’ll be making for a couple of weeks already.

It takes us 2-3 weeks to get everything set up, and lit up. I shouldn’t say “us” because Kathy does 90% of the work. She makes most of the life-sized creature props (some of which she sells on her Queen of Ghouls Ebay store), sets most of them up and has become a true master of lighting. I help haul the stuff out and help set up when I can, but I’m working all the darn time. (Sorry, Kathy.) The many bottles and props of the two laboratories, refrigerator of death, and skeletons are my primary domain where I have free rein. Adding to the skeletons and making some new cool props like wooden shutters and a metal door for one of the labs (all made from foam insulation boards).

The neighbors and children love the display so much, we usually try to have it all set up by the second weekend in October, and light it up every night for most of the month. We love seeing the thousands of smiling faces that visit the display at Kathy’s house during October. Kids of all ages enjoy it, day and night. It is truly a wonderful experience to share with others. A magical time of year for us, especially for Kathy. And I love seeing her so happy. We are so lucky to live in a neighborhood where we can do a display like this.

For Kathy and me, the Halloween season sends our creative energies soaring. As ideas for making new props and scenes dance through our heads, it also kicks my imagination into overdrive when it comes to ideas and the writing of books. Everything is giving me ideas and inspiring new material. I’m making notes for several upcoming projects, and I’m bouncing from work on one project to another as I do writing on three different titles and work on two other behind-the-scenes projects. It’s been an exhilarating and productive week.

Enjoy the weekend and our second from the last big, summer Anniversary Flash Sale.

NEW! Rifts® Special Order Products – PRINT on Demand

The following items are something new, proposed by and created by Tags, a fan of Rifts® and Palladium Books. He did the design work and had the sample products that are shown here created by Victor Narvaez at NY Embroidery. We liked what these two gents created, so we are making them available to you as Special Orders.

Here’s how Rifts® Special Order Products will work. In most cases, we have to order a limited quantity to make manufacturing and shipping cost effective (we can’t make just one at a time, but can make a dozen at a time). That means when we have a sufficient number of “Special Orders” we can have them made in a week and shipped in another week or two. And with Autumn and Winter and the holidays coming up fast, this might be a good time to order things like Reporter Bags, Embroidered Hoodies, caps and Three-Season Jackets. Enjoy and think Christmas gifts. Please Note: Your credit card will not be charged until the Special Order is in actual manufacturing.

Rifts Glitter Boy Jacket Rifts Glitter Boy Jacket

Rifts® Glitter Boy in Flames Jacket

Bizantium and the Northern Islands

NEW! Palladium Fantasy RPG® Sourcebook: Bizantium and the Northern Islands – Available now

To the civilized world, Bizantium and the waters and lands around it are frightening. A realm of sea serpents, monsters, and barbarians. To the heroes and people who live there, it is a realm of adventure, beauty and opportunity. One might consider Bizantium as the center of adventure and mystery in the North.

North of Bizantium are the Icy Ocean and Great Ice Shelf, places where only a handful of the bravest Bizantian sailors have ever set sail, and the rest of the world knows nothing about. For kingdoms in the south, only a few scholars have ever heard of the Great Ice Shelf or the cannibalistic Necromancers known as the Iceborn who make the frozen wasteland their home. Those who have heard tales of the land of ice and death are convinced they are nothing but the stuff of myth. Very soon, they will find out otherwise. And these are but a few of the revelations presented in Bizantium and the Northern Islands™. Discover for yourself the wonders and horrors that await.

  • Waterchanter O.C.C. and 20+ magic spells new to the Fantasy setting.

COMING – Rifts® Secrets of the Coalition States: The Disavowed

“Desperate times require desperate measures. War has nothing to do with morality or justice. It’s all about winning or dying. We cannot bind our hands with high ideals, even our own, or worry about the laws of renegade nations or the rights of alien people. We must fight fire with fire. And you are the match.” – Colonel Lyboc addressing a Disavowed team

The Disavowed are so Top Secret that their existence is known only to a handful of the Coalition States’ most elite, top echelon, with Joseph Prosek II the mastermind behind the Disavowed operation, and Colonel Lyboc its shadowy face. Find out who these men and women are. How the Disavowed get away with using magic, traveling to other parts of Rifts Earth and even to other dimensions in pursuit of enemies and strategic information that cannot be had through conventional means. Learn about the secret parameters in which these hard-boiled warriors, secretly hand-picked by Joseph Prosek II, operate, why almost every mission is considered a suicide mission, and why they must forever be the Disavowed.

  • CS operatives so secret that even the top military and political leaders right up to Emperor Prosek know nothing about them. And if they did know, would they condone their activity or condemn it?
  • Are the Disavowed heroes or renegades? Assassins or soldiers? Madmen or super-patriots? Or a little of them all?

  • How do they reward their D-Bee “teammates” when the mission is over?
  • What happens to the Disavowed when they have seen or learned too much? Adventure ideas galore and so much more.

Chaos Earth Rise of Magic

Rise of Magic – Rifts® Chaos Earth® Sourcebook – Now shipping

We’ve all played “post” apocalyptic games. Now imagine playing as the apocalypse is happening. As the world you know is crumbling. As magic and monsters from myth become real and your world is reshaped by forces beyond your comprehension. That is the premise behind the Rifts® Chaos Earth® series. That YOU play through the Great Cataclysm as the apocalypse happens.

Rifts® Chaos Earth®: Rise of Magic™ is a key book in that continuing story (new books are coming this Spring and Summer). In Rise of Magic™, humans, particularly children, are discovering they can draw upon mystic energy and cast magic. The thing is, they don’t really know what they are doing. Magic is just part of the chaos and the impossible that is happening all around them. Meanwhile, others have found they can summon and control monsters and demons, while still others make pacts with supernatural beings to become witches and worse. And some have learned they can harness the magic to animate and command the dead. Madness and more chaos ensues. All of this only complicates things for NEMA, Earth’s defenders, as the line of distinction between “good guys” and “bad guys” begins to blur, and things go from bad to worse.

  • Chaos Magic, new magic specific to the Chaos Earth® setting.
  • 100+ unique Chaos Magic spells.
  • New magic O.C.C.s like the Blue Zone Wizard and Chaos Wizard.
  • New evil magic users like the Chaos Witch and Demon Caller.
  • More on NEMA and the Demon Plagues.
  • Written by Kevin Siembieda. At the printer.
  • Two new Chaos Earth® sourcebooks are coming soon.
  • 64 pages – $12.95 – Cat. No. 662. Available now.

The origins of Rifts® start here! It is a new beginning. But first everything that human civilization had become during the Golden Age of Science, more than eighty years in our future, must come to a crashing end. The Earth is in the process of being transformed into a place more alien than a thousand alien worlds. Ley lines erupt with even more power and ambient energy than what is known on Rifts Earth 300 years later. Rifts – tears in space and time – appear along ley lines to unleash legions of aliens, monsters, dragons, supernatural horrors, and ancient gods of myth and legend in a mad symphony of chaos and transformation.

You play survivors or the heroes of NEMA. The men and women of the Northern Eagle Military Alliance equipped with their Chromium Guardsmen (Glitter Boys), Silver Eagles (SAMAS) and host of other robots and power armor to stand against a rising tide of enemies and alien invaders.
