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.

UPDATE: Christmas Surprise Packages – ONLY 3 weeks to Christmas

As time is running out, orders are pouring in for the best deal in gaming – Offer ends December 24, 2015

It looks like many of you have been waiting till Christmas got closer before placing a Surprise Package order. That’s awesome. We are happy to see them, so keep them pouring in, and we’ll keep them shipping out! See the shipping dates below to help you gauge when you NEED to place orders in time for Christmas.

For those of you who don’t know what a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package is, it’s usually $89-$95 or more worth of Palladium RPG books for only $42 plus shipping and handling. And because you guys and gals mean so much to us, I often pack in more than $90 worth of product. Oh, and each book will be signed by me (Kevin Siembieda) and available Palladium staff and freelancers if you request it. It is our way of saying thanks to all of you for your support and kindness.

Surprise Packages are the perfect holiday gift for gamers as well as for upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, or filling in holes in your collection or trying new game settings (Rifts®, Robotech®, Nightbane®, Dead Reign®, Beyond the Supernatural™, Heroes Unlimited™, Ninjas & Superspies™, After the Bomb®, Splicers® and all the rest). We’re happy to put smiles on your faces with these items.

  • Christmas Surprise Packages make great gifts for the gamers in your lives.
  • Fill holes in your own collection.
  • Try new game settings and receive cool stuff.
  • Get autographs from the Palladium crew and available freelancers.
  • Be surprised when the package arrives.
  • All items selected and comments read by Santa Kevin, himself. Ho, ho, ho!

IF YOU WANT YOUR SURPRISE PACKAGE IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS, YOU NEED TO ORDER IN THE NEXT 10 DAYS! For those of you in the USA and Canada, placing an order over the next ten days guarantees you to get your Christmas Surprise Packages in time for Christmas. And without having to pay for a better, faster method of shipping! The only exception is Media Mail, as it is unreliable. Note: When you place your order now, you avoid the Christmas rush and reduce the chance of your package getting lost or delayed!

Shipping guidelines for Christmas delivery – 3 weeks till Christmas Eve! Offer ends December 24, 2015

Shipping Considerations: When ordering, you need to factor in time for Palladium to process those orders (usually 24 hours, not counting weekends) and the actual transit time of shipping itself (generally 3-5 business days in the USA depending on where you live). Do NOT include Saturday or Sunday as shipping days, because they are not. Get those orders in NOW to get your order or Surprise Packages in time for Christmas without having to pay an arm and a leg for expedited shipping!

A long Wish List avoids delays. Your “Wish List” – The Palladium Surprise Packages are designed to simulate the fun, joy and surprise of the Christmas Season of Giving. To do this, you submit a list of 10-14 Palladium products (or more) FOR EACH Surprise Package you order. This list of 10-14 items for EACH Grab Bag is critical, because you will not know which items you’ll be getting. That makes it just like a Christmas gift because it’s a surprise! Plus, Santa Kevin, who personally hand-picks every item for every Grab Bag, may toss in something extra like a limited edition print or T-shirt, or issue of The Rifter®, or something else he thinks you’ll enjoy.

Shipping guidelines for Christmas delivery:

Note: Remember, Palladium needs a day or two to process and pack orders and we cannot ship on the weekends. Make sure your address is complete (include Apt. Number) and your order is clear.

  • Media Mail – Place your order via Media Mail by December 11 and you should get your Surprise Package by Christmas, but Palladium will NOT guarantee any package shipped via Media Mail to arrive before Christmas. Use this method at your own risk. Note: Media Mail, which applies only to paper goods, is the least expensive method of shipping, BUT also the slowest and least reliable method. The USPS will tell you 4-10 days for delivery, HOWEVER, experience has shown us that during the holidays, delivery time is more like 7-21 days. Ship at your own risk.
  • UPS Ground in the USA – Place order by December 15 to guarantee Christmas delivery. Those of you who live east of the Mississippi River may have till December 18, and since Christmas Eve is on Thursday, many of you east of the Mississippi who place orders as late as December 20 MAY get still get your order in time, but it is a 50/50 gamble. Those of you living west of the Mississippi need to get orders to us no later than December 15 to guarantee delivery by Christmas Eve.
  • Priority Mail in the USA – Place your order by December 18 (should be a bit cheaper than UPS 3-Day Select).
  • UPS 3-Day Select in the USA – Place your order by December 20 for guaranteed Christmas delivery.
  • UPS 2nd Day Air in the USA – Place your order by December 21.
  • UPS Next Day Air in the USA – Place your order by December 22.
  • Express Mail in the USA – Place your order by December 20.
  • Parcel Post in the USA – NOT ADVISED. Placing an order by December 15 means you MAY get your order in time for Christmas, but probably not. There is only a 33% chance. We can NOT guarantee a Christmas delivery using Parcel Post at this time.
  • December 12 – to our friends in Canada and overseasTo guarantee delivery in time for Christmas, we suggest ordering no later than December 12. Happy Holidays, one and all!

Please spread the word about the Christmas Surprise Packages to gamers everywhere!

A great way to introduce Palladium’s settings to new gamers is with a Christmas Surprise Package. I mean, for the price of what most core rule books cost, you can get one Surprise Package ($42 plus shipping) with 3-5 different titles (depending on the value of each book). It’s hard to beat that kind of deal. The Christmas Surprise Package is only publicized by word of mouth, to readers of The Rifter® and on Palladium's website – www.palladiumbooks.com – so please tell everyone you know, post a link on your Facebook page, twitter and... well, everywhere. And pick one up one for every gamer you know and have a joyful holiday season.

COMING: Island at the Edge of the World, 1st Edition rules, back in print – Ships December 11, 2015

You asked for it and we provide. Island at the Edge of the World is a short print run of the book with First Edition rules, but is easily adapted to Palladium Fantasy, 2nd Edition. It should be available December 11, and may be requested for Christmas Surprise Packages.

The zombie horde — well, it feels like it some days

Yeah, these are the geese that gather when the weather gets cold. We counted 61 of them the day this photo was taken of a good portion of them, but I’m sure we missed a few. They really do remind us of zombies. They walk slow, often in a line or a scattered mob, and they have the zombie moan that alerts other geese in the area that there is food. Okay, it’s a honking sound, not a moan, but it might as well be. Hmmm. Zombie geese in Dead Reign®? Nah.

Murmurs from the Megaverse®

I’m back doing Murmurs from the Megaverse, so keep an eye out for them.

Happy Hanukkah!

For those of you celebrating Hanukkah, the holidays are already here. I hope it is filled with light, love, and joy.

I’m sure there is more going on, but that’s all for this Update. Enjoy your weekend. Oh, and a shout out to the smart and lovely Sarah Aten – Happy Birthday – I hope it’s very special. (Brandon, behave!)

Surprise Package comments from fans like you

Every year there is a section where the customer can offer comments and suggestions with his or her Surprise Package order. Every year, in acknowledgment of our fans, and because they are fun to read, we offer a sampling in the Weekly Updates. Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have stuck with Palladium through thick and thin. Keep those imaginations burning bright, have a joyous holiday season and game on.

You have no idea how much your comments and support mean to all of us. Everyone at Palladium enjoys reading your brief comments. They always brighten our day. Thank you. Since I haven’t been posting as much as I’d like, I have tried to write a short response [in brackets] when applicable.

A.L. in Kennesaw, Georgia, writes (in part): ... I look forward to the Surprise Packages every winter. Many thanks to all of you at Palladium for writing such an engrossing world, letting us play in it, and loving your fans enough to do this every year. I can’t wait to see the Secrets of the Atlanteans and Mechanoid® Space. Any chance of new Splicers® stuff.

[Hi A.L., thank you for your warm words. We do love our fans, you guys are the best there is. Secrets of the Atlanteans should see release by Spring if not sooner. Mechanoid Space is quite a ways off, and yes, you can expect new Splicers® stuff. In fact, there is a large, official Splicers® adventure and source material in The Rifter® #71-72, but sourcebooks are also in the pipeline. Stay healthy and happy. – KS]

J.G. in Melbourne, Australia, writes (in part): I haven’t been a fan all that long, but over the past several years I have come to love your work. I came to possess old first edition copies of the Robotech® RPG books from my brother as we were fans of the show. We both went straight out and bought Robotech® The Shadow Chronicles® when it came out... When I finally bought a retail version of Robotech® RPG Tactics™ earlier this year, I love the game!

[Hi J.G., thank you for the kind words. Delighted you enjoy our games. We love Robotech® too and have big plans for its future. Happy holidays. – KS]

M.M. in Meadville, Pennsylvania, writes: You guys are the best! I have loved each X-Mas package so far. I also very much enjoy the amusing comments and the artwork drawn on some of my orders. So please, keep the gaming awesome!

[You’ve got it, M.M. -KS]

J.K. in O’Fallon, Missouri, writes (in part): I just wanted to send a continued thanks for doing what you do. I have written in the past how your games brought my group of friends together and it allows us to be ourselves, and have a release from the normal day to day. It means a lot to me, the bonds I have formed, and just the inside jokes we text to each other. Thank you again, many times, you and your amazing crew.

[I know exactly what you mean, J.K. There is this incredible shorthand and inside jokes that develop between you and your gaming friends that is unique and a joy. I hope you enjoyed your Grab Bag, and thank you for your kind words and years of support. Game on! – KS]

J.H. in Louisville, Kentucky, writes: Thank you for all the hard work! My boys and friends love these worlds.

[Thank you, J.H. We love them too, and I think it shows in our work. We have a large number of fans in the Louisville area. Makes me wonder why there are so many gamers in Kentucky, and Louisville in particular. Awesome. Happy Holidays. – KS]

J.B. in Grand Fork, North Dakota, writes: My group is playing a lot of Fantasy, and I’ve got a Mind Mage that is great fun. Anything related to psychics and Fantasy would be excellent.

[Hey J.B., but then you asked for a bunch of Heroes Unlimited stuff! I think we sent you a nice selection of goodies. That map is compliments of the artist, Will Erwin. The Mind Mage is one of my favorite characters in Palladium Fantasy, too. – KS]

K.H. in Cadillac, Michigan, writes: I play Rifts® more than any other RPG, but friends like to have a good game of Palladium Fantasy every now and then.

[Sounds good to me, K.H. All of you keep those imaginations burning bright. – KS]

X-Mas Grab Bags

Palladium Christmas Surprise Packages start NOW!

Can you believe it? It's that time again for the Palladium Christmas Surprise Package! Palladium Books® has been doing Christmas Surprise Packages, or “Grab Bags,” for 17 or 18 years. It enables you to get several RPG titles ($86-95 worth for ONLY $42 plus shipping and handling) as gifts or for yourself. It is our way to say thank you to our many fans for being so kind and patient, and for your years of support. You are appreciated more than you may realize.

Christmas Surprise Packages are not just for Christmas. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or the Winter Solstice, or you’re looking for a gift for a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or any special occasion that falls between now and February, a Surprise Package may be the ideal way to go. You get a ton of stuff on the cheap, you can get a bunch of autographs (if you want ‘em), and you look like you spent a fortune.

This is also a great way to try that game setting you’ve wondered about (Splicers®, Dead Reign®, Chaos Earth®, Palladium Fantasy®, Nightbane®, etc.), or to get something for your favorite Game Master, or perhaps to get your player group to consider a new game or setting.

Your “Wish List” – The Palladium Surprise Packages are designed to simulate the fun, joy and surprise of the Christmas Season of Giving. To do this, you submit a list of 10-14 Palladium products (or more) FOR EACH Surprise Package you order. This list of 10-14 items for EACH Grab Bag is critical, because you will not know which items you’ll be getting. That makes it just like a Christmas gift because it’s a surprise! Plus, Santa Kevin, who personally hand-picks every item for every Grab Bag, may toss in something extra like a limited edition print or T-shirt, or issue of The Rifter®, or something else he thinks you’ll enjoy.

Autographed books. For those of you who want them (which are most people), the available members of the Palladium staff, and any freelancers we can lasso at the time, are happy to autograph each and every book in your Surprise Package. This is the only way many fans, especially those in other countries, can EVER get signed books.

Send us your brief comments. There is a special form and format to fill out for Christmas Surprise Packages, including a place where you can offer your brief comments, suggestions, greetings and salutations.

It only costs $42 plus shipping to get $86-$95+ worth of Palladium products! First-timers are always nervous until they see the great value in their first Surprise Package. A typical Grab Bag has $86-$95 worth of product, sometimes more! Yes, sometimes more. Many people order 2-3. Some order 4-6, and some maniacs order even more! It makes sense, because it is a great way to fill holes in your own collection, treat yourself, get autographs, try new games and settings, and get your gaming pals gifts. SPREAD THE WORD about this great offer.

Zombie Time!

Think you can survive the Zombie Apocalypse? Do you have a desire to kick some zombie butt? Then you want the Dead Reign® RPG – available from Palladium Books® or as PDFs from DriveThruRPG.com. There are currently six titles that are as much fun to read as they are to play. And more are coming.

Dead Reign® RPG – Core Rules – everything you need to know to play

Experience the nightmare of being stalked by the living dead. Who can you trust? Where can you go to be safe? How do you fight the dead? Find out in Dead Reign® – a complete role-playing game that captures the horror, suspense and trauma of the post-apocalyptic world dominated by zombie hordes. And the zombies? More than what you may expect. All of them deadly.

  • Rules are easy to learn.
  • Combat is fast, fun and intuitive.
  • The setting, brutal and unrelenting.
  • Characters represent the last of humanity.
  • Play ordinary people who must find a way to survive against impossible odds; 40 different occupations and notable skills for each.
  • Or play one of the more extraordinary survivors who battle zombies and try to rescue the living. They don’t mean to be heroes, they just are.
  • They say there is no surviving a zombie bite. The Half-Living say otherwise. They are victims of a zombie attack, but instead of dying and turning, they come out of their coma more (or some would say, less) than human. The question is, might they turn at any time?
  • Slouchers are the slow moving zombies. They gather in large herds and kill all they encounter.
  • Flesh-Eating Zombies are fast and predatory. They hunt in packs, and stalk humans day and night.
  • Mock Zombies are twisted abominations: The dead who retain a large portion of their mind and identity, but cannot accept what they have become. Most are quite insane and insist they are not monsters. They claim to be alive, and only want to help their “fellow man.” That last part might even be true, until the irresistible need to kill the living takes over.
  • Pattern Zombies are the dead that only kill when they come face to face with the living or are attacked first. Unlike the Slouchers and other zombies, they don’t seek out human prey. Rather, they are locked in some pattern from their past life, endlessly reenacting their job at the factory, or a typical day at home mowing the lawn or watching the game on a TV that no longer receives broadcasts.
  • Thinkers are among the most dangerous: zombies that retain a level of cognitive thought and awareness. They can open a door or unlatch a gate, use a weapon such as a knife or axe, figure out ways to get inside strongholds and go around traps. Worst of all, other zombies follow them, and Thinkers often lead mobs of lesser zombies against the living.
  • More than 30 pages describing zombies, with all the hows and whys of their behavior and their need to kill the living. Seven different types of zombies (more appear in the Dark Places and Endless Dead sourcebooks).
  • Page after page of Zombie Apocalypse survival tips.
  • Six Apocalyptic Character Classes, with any number of Ordinary People as survivors fighting to keep humanity alive.
  • Death Cults and their leaders. Not all humans are allies.
  • Retro-Savages, survivors who blame the apocalypse on technology, and feed people who still use guns, cars and tech, to the dead.
  • Weapons, survival tips and how to fight the dead!
  • Vehicles, equipment and notable resources.
  • 101 Random Scenarios/Encounters/Settings, adventure ideas and more.
  • The complete core rule book. And learn the rules of this RPG and you can play any Palladium RPG. You see, Palladium’s games all use the same basic rules. Learn one, and you can play them all. More than that, you can bring your characters, weapons, powers and magic from one game setting to the next, creating a truly infinite Megaverse® of worlds and adventure.

Rifts The Disavowed

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.

  • 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?

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.

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.
