“Greetings, Earthlings.” I always loved it when Marvin the Martian would make his appearance and say those words in old Warner Brother cartoons. Makes me smile. Is it weird I’m opening with this? It has been a weird week.

The first half of the week I was sick. I’m still a little out of sorts, but much better overall. The rest of the week has been a frenetic blur of activity as we all press hard to finish books and move other projects along, as well as deal with a variety of business matters, running around and planning. I’m happy to say things are moving forward.

UPDATE: The Rifter® Super-Subscription Drive – a limited time offer

Subscriptions and renewals have been coming in at a steady pace. Please, keep ‘em coming. The annual Super-Subscription Drive happens only once a year and ends in a few weeks. The FREE gifts that come with this annual subscription drive are special and fun to entice people into trying The Rifter®, because we want everyone to realize the tremendous value of The Rifter®. It is a resource for new ideas, for building adventures, and a source for supplemental material that is suitable for most Palladium RPG world settings, not just the specific game line the articles may have been written for. See for yourself.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #73 – ALL “official” source material – goes to the printer next week

Wow, this is an amazing issue. I know, because I have edited, reviewed or written most of the material in the book. Good stuff. Thought provoking and useful. We are putting the final touches on it even as you read this, and will be doing final layout over the weekend and sending it off to the printer.

The Rifter® #73 contains “official” adventure source material for Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy RPG®, Splicers® and Dead Reign®. There are Hidden Nexus Points, Nexus Born, the Triumvirate Dragon, Faeries, Wolfen, the Great Northern Wilderness, Splicers® with I am Legion Part Two, walking dead in the city of Detroit, and more. And it is all official.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #74 – More “official” material in the Spring issue

There is already material written and lining up for The Rifter® #74 that will also include “official” source material by Julius Rosenstein and me (Kevin Siembieda) for Rifts®, as well as official material for Splicers® and maybe Heroes Unlimited™, among others. We are on a roll. Have you ordered your subscription yet?

UPDATE: Heroes of Humanity Sourcebook

I have spent all of my time this week on recovering from a bug, getting The Rifter® #73 finished, and a number of other things. But when I’m done, I’m all in on Heroes of Humanity™ and The Disavowed™.

UPDATE: Robotech® RPG Tactics

As I have stated in recent Weekly Updates on our website, Palladium Books has renewed its Robotech® game license and we intend to move Robotech® RPG Tactics™ forward in 2016 in a big way. I want to get the Wave Two Kickstarter exclusives and expansion packs into manufacturing, and ultimately into your hands, as soon as we can.

Despite the fear and apprehension of some, I want to assure you that our Kickstarter backers have never been out of our thoughts, and Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Wave Two is coming. As I have stated, for strategic and business reasons we have been unable to share with you everything Palladium has been exploring, considering and working on. As you know, one of the things we have been doing is looking into and considering possible ways to reduce part counts and make the game pieces easier to put together. As we get into actual production and manufacturing for Wave Two this year, we will share plenty with you. And we think you’ll be pleased. Considering all the delays and frustration of the past, we do not want to even speculate on release dates and other details until we have hard, solid information we are confident with ourselves.

In the Spring we expect to be able to share with you much more details, information, progress reports and offer up new material on a regular basis. We’ll have some new data and material sooner, but I don’t think things will really begin to heat up before Spring or Summer. We want Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Wave Two and fulfillment of our Kickstarter obligations more than anyone. It’s coming.

Oh, and when we talk about the relaunch of Robotech® RPG Tactics™ we mean a renewed market push of the core game, regular product releases and game support, like RRT rules clarifications and elaboration, rules additions, advanced rules, demos, convention support, gaming events and promotions, adventures, PDF and physical releases, and more.

We are also floating ideas for a number of new Robotech® RPG sourcebooks for various Robotech® generations, which will ultimately result in new mecha, vehicles, aliens, and factions for Robotech® RPG Tactics™ expansions. We have some ideas of our own, but we welcome input and suggestions from you, so start kicking around ideas and don’t hesitate to share them with us.

Please know that we are truly committed to fulfilling our Kickstarter obligations and to make Robotech® RPG Tactics™ truly epic, with future expansions across all eras of Robotech®.

Game Masters Needed – Gen Con Indy – We need your game event submissions by this weekend, but keep them coming

Please keep those Gen Con game event descriptions coming in! Help us celebrate Palladium’s 35th Anniversary with even MORE Palladium gaming events at the 2016 Gen Con Indy than ever before.

Game Masters wanted. We are looking for Game Masters to showcase all of Palladium’s RPGs: Rifts®, Robotech®, Heroes Unlimited™, Palladium Fantasy®, Nightbane®, Dead Reign®, Beyond the Supernatural™, Splicers®, After the Bomb®, Ninjas & Superspies™ and all the rest. Also looking for people to demo Robotech® RPG Tactics™ and we would love to see a Robotech® RPG Tactics™ tournament if any of you are willing to organize and run one.

Rewards for Game Masters (and players)! And just like the last two years, Palladium offers the Best Players, Game Masters and all gamers in each event rewards for their participation. Plus G.M.s who run several games in the Palladium block get a free Gen Con G.M. badge and we get to have all events in the same area, making it convenient for players and Game Masters. Palladium is always looking for NEW G.M.s to run events and join the Megaversal Ambassadors, so please consider helping out and having some fun at the same time by running Palladium events at Gen Con and other conventions around the world.

Game Masters, please contact Palladium Books and/or Gen Con Game events coordinators Jeff Ruiz (NMI) and Patrick “Jake” Jakubowski now through January 31, 2016. In order to get into the Gen Con Games Pre-Registration and the onsite program book, Gen Con needs ALL game information by Mid-February.

Note: Game events submitted AFTER FEBRUARY 10, 2016 are not likely to get listed in the Gen Con Pre-Registration and onsite program book. If you want your games filled with people and to have one central location for all Palladium related events, we need to get them to the Palladium coordinators this weekend! And certainly no later than next weekend. Jeff and Jake are waiting for your game descriptions right now!

Send in your Gen Con game descriptions pronto to the Palladium Megaversal Ambassadors pronto at ambassadors{at}palladiumbooks.com — or by telephone (734-721-2903).

Gotta get back to work

Last week I talked about ideas flying and I wasn’t kidding. In addition to our current projects and moving Robotech® RPG Tactics™ forward, we made notes for two new game books. So I better get back to work on The Rifter® #73 and Heroes of Humanity™ so we can get to them. I hope our friends and fans on the East Coast have dug out of the snow and are getting back to things as normal. Don’t forget to place your order for a subscription to The Rifter® during the Super-Subscription Drive to get free gifts worth up to $35.85 in addition to the subscription savings! Smile, good things are happening.

The Rifter Super-Subscription

The Rifter® Super-Subscription Drive – Low Price – Free Gift

It only happens once a year – for a limited time – The Rifter® Super-Subscription Drive. We want people to discover The Rifter® as a valuable resource, so during the Super-Subscription Drive we offer a selection of FREE gifts as an additional enticement to subscribe. Gamers already familiar with The Rifter® always jump at this offer. That’s because even when late, The Rifter® has been so consistently good, it is hard to say no to the Super-Subscription Drive.

The free gift is always a nice incentive, unique and fun. I have dug through the Palladium archives to make a number of out of print titles and “special” items available. For us, gaming is all about friends and fun, so enjoy and have fun. Note: The early issues of The Rifter® are limited and available only while supplies last. Please keep the orders coming and enjoy.

Here are four reasons (and 7 gift choices) why this is the perfect time to try The Rifter® or renew your subscription:

  1. Save $16 off retail and each issue is delivered right to your door.
  2. FREE gift worth $17.90 to $35.85 when you order now! 7 gift choices.
  3. Order during the Super-Subscription Drive to lock in your low, low subscription price for the next year.
  4. The Rifter® has been outstanding and is the place to find regular source material for Beyond the Supernatural, Palladium Fantasy®, Splicers®, Dead Reign®, Heroes Unlimited™ and other settings. And future issues will have more player and G.M. tips, and more “official” source material.

If you haven’t taken a look at The Rifter® lately (if ever), I suggest you try an issue.

The Rifter® is an excellent gaming resource. A place to find ideas as well as characters, monsters, villains, powers, magic and adventures for your own game. Characters, powers and equipment you can drop into most game settings with little or no modification. Even articles designed for settings you don’t play are likely to offer ideas and material you can easily modify and incorporate into your campaign. In fact, drawing on concepts from outside the usual setting can spice up your game and keep players guessing. The Rifter® is a great tool for that. The beauty of Palladium’s Megaversal Game System is you can often take characters, gear and ideas from one world setting and drop them into ANY of the other settings with no or little work. Other times, the amount of modification is minimal to make it work in a different setting. That means a monster from Palladium Fantasy® can be a creature, mutant or alien in Heroes Unlimited™, After the Bomb®, Robotech®, Rifts®, Nightbane®, The Mechanoids®, Chaos Earth® or Splicers®, and vice versa. What needs to be adjusted? Perhaps just changing Hit Points/S.D.C. and damage to Mega-Damage, or M.D.C. and M.D. to Hit Points/S.D.C., or some other minor tweaks.

Characters from Heroes Unlimited™ and After the Bomb® can be from the future, or the past (depending on the setting), or they can be mutants, or aliens, or beings from another or parallel world. As I am so wont to say, you are limited only by your imagination. The same holds true for towns, cities and adventures – use that place and the adventure ideas tailored to a different setting. Sure you may have to swap out monsters and treasure, or adjust motives, but you might be surprised how easy, fun and different that adventure plays out in a different world environment.

The Rifter® is the ultimate source for alternative, new and different ideas, rules, adventures, characters, and story ideas. All of which can be tweaked to fit most settings, as can optional rules. The Rifter® is a factory for alternative ideas.

The Rifter® Super-Subscription Offer is your chance to try The Rifter® at a discount price and get a FREE gift. A limited time offer. Do not miss out!

The Rifter #73

NEW! The Rifter® #73 – Ships Early February

The Rifter® #73 is in final production. Articles have been selected and most of it, if not all, is “official” source material! If that is the case (and I think it will be), it is the first time an entire issue of The Rifter® contains all “official” source material. A good way to kickoff Palladium’s 35 Year Anniversary. In final production and should go to the printer in a week or so.

Every issue of The Rifter® is an idea factory for players and Game Masters to generate new ideas and find new avenues of adventure. It provides useful, ready to go source material you can just drop into your ongoing games. A doorway to new possibilities and numerous Palladium role-playing worlds. And the many new characters, O.C.C.s, powers, magic, weapons, villains, monsters, adventures and ideas for one setting can be easily adapted to any Palladium setting. Every issue has material for Rifts® and at least 2-3 other Palladium game lines. And don’t forget, most of the material can be easily adapted for use in ANY Palladium game setting.

In this adventure, the player group is given instructions from the Warlord, himself, to learn more about this enemy, and if possible, use a special weapon to bring it down. But nothing ever works that easy. New War Mounts, O.C.C. upgrades, NPCs, and more, including the very first time a Splicer Warlord is ever statted out.

Rifts The Disavowed

Rifts® Secrets of the Coalition States: The Disavowed™ – March

“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?
  • Unsung heroes who keep the CS safe, or thugs and pawns of a shadow agency within the Coalition government?

  • 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.
