Weekly Updates 2

Palladium Books® – Weekly Update – April 9, 2020

One game system – every genre – countless worlds – endless adventure

By Kevin Siembieda

Hi everyone, I am happy to report the Palladium crew remains healthy and virus free (as far as we know). I hope the same can be said of you and yours.

The Palladium crew is still reporting feeling fine and I when I am not writing or dealing with business matters, I am packing and shipping your orders, so please keep them coming. I have recently begun randomly signing books. Typically only one book in an order of two or more unless it is a name I recognize and I know they like autographs. I know some folks do not like their books signed, so I do not want to sign too many. Of course, it is only my signature. I hope most of you enjoy that little surprise. Just a little something in the hopes that it makes your day a little brighter.

I want to thank everyone for your kind words of support and purchases. Online sales remain stronger than we feared they might. That’s fabulous because these are scary times for everyone. Thank you. And my thanks for the many birthday wishes and kind emails, phone calls, and comments that came and continue to come in. The three recent correspondences, below, are a good representation of what I am hearing a lot from people and I wanted to share and reply. My comments/response follow immediately after Number Three.

#1) Thank you for your Murmurs from the Megaverse posts and [Weekly Update] emails. I appreciate your thoughts and encouragement for all the Palladium fans out there during these crazy times ... I took advantage of one of your recent sales to help out Palladium and with some of the gaps in my collection. I'll probably do the same next month. Hopefully, there are surely plenty of other lifelong fans out there doing the same. Supporting each other is how we get through this. – MN

#2) Thank you for the quick response. I did not expect you to reply so quickly with all you have going on – you are a machine! As a small effort to help out with the COVID-19 downturn, I’ll be downloading a number of PDFs from DriveThruRPG.com to add to my electronic library and ordering a new main Fantasy RPG book like I mentioned. I assume you get royalties for downloads from DriveThruRPG of your products. Thanks for creating my favorite RPG system and persevering through all the crap. – TW

#3) I have eagerly awaited the CS Disavowed sourcebook. CS Manhunters looks interesting too! ... I just feel the burn to get my Coalition States love into action ... I hope you are well. So many businesses are being affected by this virus, it is horrible. My best to you, your family and the Palladium gang! – DF

Kevin’s response: Please let me comment on these three generous communications as they reflect the sentiment of many of you. I am always grateful to hear that my Murmurs and Updates are appreciated, because they come from the heart and are written with the best of intentions. I am trying to do my small part in helping everyone try to get through these difficult and frightening times. As MN wisely said, supporting each other is how we get through this. Amen.

Not the first time I have been called a Machine. I think WoTC’s Ryan Dancey, back in the mid-1990s, was the first to dub me as such. Or that may have been the first time it struck a positive cord and the Machine really stuck to become a nickname around the Palladium office. Maryann, my wife at the time, even made a handful of T-shirts that said, “The Machine.” Funny.

The Rifts® CS Manhunters and CS Disavowed are both Coalition States sourcebooks (as well as CS Arsenal) and they will be coming – um, barring any key Palladium people getting sick. The Covid19 pandemic and such has already thrown an unexpected monkey wrench into our work and schedule, and I do not want books to slip any further. It has been a difficult and distracting time for all of us, but I’m starting to gear back up writing. I know you will enjoy these books very much!

As for the multitude of businesses being affected by this, holy crap! My heart goes out to them. It is horrible. So far, Palladium is holding its own for now thanks to so many of you continuing to order books and PDFs, but I worry for us as things continue. I also worry about game shops and comic book retailers, distributors, fellow game companies, and lots of other businesses, including a few of our favorite restaurants. We are hunkered down.

I am actually worried more about the financial consequences and fallout of the pandemic for everyone, than I am about catching Covid19. We have all been isolated and are being smart and following the CDC’s recommendations. Heck, the first thing I do every morning at the office before I do anything else is put on my face mask, don some latex gloves and wipe down surfaces, equipment, doorknobs, etc., with disinfectant. (I lucked out and snagged a four-pack at Sam’s Club a while back.) As a result, I feel, perhaps foolishly, confident that I and the crew at home are as reasonably safe as anyone. However, financial concerns are ever looming.

So far, thanks to you, our wonderful fans, we are hanging tough and are reasonably confident we can continue to do so with your help. Prior to the Covid19 pandemic exploding onto the scene and the Stay at Home orders that shut down people and businesses, sales were strong and looking up! Garden of the Gods™ was/is a smash hit, and people were very excited about upcoming releases. Now ... with so many people struggling financially, it is impossible to predict how long sales will hold. So far, so good. Fingers crossed that you, me, and Palladium Books can get through this.

I sincerely appreciate all of you who are making an effort to continue to buy Palladium products because you love them, but with the specific intent to help keep us going during these difficult and frightening times. How incredibly kind and thoughtful of you to think of us. It means more to me than words can adequately describe, especially when I know all of you must have your own issues and worries. As I have always stated, Palladium fans are truly the greatest in the world. Thank you so much. Every order helps during these very uncertain days. Please know that we are NOT giving up. In fact, I am gearing up! So hang tight with us. Good things are coming. We all have to stay hopeful and positive and watch each other’s backs.

I will try to post more Murmurs from the Megaverse®. These are thoughts and ramblings from yours truly. Some of them are short snippets, hellos, and shout outs, some are product and company updates, others more lengthy musings and words of encouragement. Many will be personal and informal chats as if you were sitting here with me and we were talking.

Extended One Week – Ninja Mutant Animal Super-Heroes Fun Sale

I hope you do not mind that I ended up extending the Ninja Mutant Super-Heroes Fun Sale. I thought about doing a new sale, but I am juggling so much and so distracted at the moment that I was drawing a blank. Moreover, a lot of people really seem to be enjoying this sale so I thought, “What the heck, one more week.” And I did say I may continue it for another week.

Okay, I have to admit I’m biased toward mutants and super-beings. I looove super-heroes and animals (intelligent mutants or otherwise) and ninjas/martial arts. Marvel’s X-Men and DC’s Legion of Super-Heroes were two of my favorite comic books when I was a kid growing up in the 1960s. Both of which had mutants and misfits, animal powers and martial combat. So I think this sale is pretty awesome and perfect for kids of all ages. As a result, I like the idea of giving you more time to find these great books and get these deals and put together super-heroic adventures and campaigns of every conceivable variety. Please enjoy.

Sale Items in the Palladium Store

Why this sale now? One reason is a bit of nostalgia. People keep mentioning our epic Teenage Mutants Ninja Turtles® RPG from the 1980s and ‘90s, and how much they loved it and wish we still had it available. (Me too!)

Another reason is I know a lot of you are introducing your children to role-playing games and Ninja Turtles® or any mutant animal heroes and Heroes Unlimited™ (create ANY type of superhuman hero) are outstanding, fun settings to introduce children to role-playing games. Most every kid knows and loves super-heroes and with the Heroes Unlimited™ RPG you can recreate any comic book hero or create your own new ones. And while the Palladium’s TMNT® RPG is long out of print, many of you still have it tucked away, and for those of you who do not own it, you can create a huge array of mutant animals using After the Bomb® RPG (AtB) or Heroes Unlimited™ RPG. Both have rules for creating mutant animals – the same rules that were found in the TMNT RPG. And After the Bomb® RPG has expanded and updated mutant animal rules by Erick Wujcik! The original mastermind behind Palladium’s rules for generating an endless array of mutant animals.

Lastly, playing intelligent mutant animals and super-heroes are fun, fun, fun. And it is time for a little light and laughter. Both types of characters and the modern, comic book superhuman settings can be played for laughs or straight-laced and serious.

Want to create mutants and super beings super-fast? Then snag yourself a copy of the Heroes of the Megaverse® sourcebook. An ancient magical tome called The Book of Heroes appears whenever and wherever there is a great need for heroes. The sourcebook is complete with 101 super abilities and fast, easy creation rules to enable you to create and play a wide range of super-heroes very quickly and, I believe, without requiring any other rule book, but I might be wrong about that. And having any Palladium RPG is helpful, especially if it is After the Bomb® RPG (AtB) or Heroes Unlimited™ RPG.

So be a superhuman. Or a courageous mutant animal. Or a ninja in the shadows. Or a swashbuckling martial artist, or any number of super-enhanced characters and have a blast.

In the Face of Death

UPDATE: In the Face of Death (Zombie Apocalypse) – in production

In the Face of Death™ is part survival guide and part cityscape setting that I believe is unlike anything you have ever quite seen or considered before in a zombie RPG. I hope In the Face of Death™ makes you look at the zombie apocalypse setting in a new and expanded way that presents to you an endless wealth of ideas and adventure. The zombie element really puts such a fun and deadly twist on the traditional post-apocalypse game setting. One where survival after the collapse of human civilization is complicated by the fact that undead creatures lurk EVERYWHERE. It is like the movie A Quiet Place only even more horrifying and suspenseful. It combines elements of survival in a post-apocalyptic world, horror, zombies, madness, and classic dungeon exploring with a touch of something different and unique. This is a book that pushes the genre and builds a world of adventure built upon human ingenuity, courage, hope, and madness. It is very close to completion.

  • Rethinking the Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Survival in the urban environment.
  • Living on the rooftops in the heart of the city.
  • Urban homesteads, resources, defenses, traps, and more.
  • Death Cults, a different type of danger.
  • Bad people, Gutter Rats, Flesh Peddlers, and more.
  • Heroic Masked Lunatics – a new type of hero, as player characters.
  • Kids, teenagers, and young survivors as player characters.
  • 100+ adventure hooks and dozens of additional ideas to take your zombie campaign to new heights.
  • Cover by E.M. Gist. Interior art by Nick Bradshaw.
  • Written by Kevin Siembieda and Mark Oberle. Adaptable to other settings like Rifts®, Nightbane®, Heroes Unlimited™, and more.
  • 128 pages – $18.99 retail – Cat. No. 237 – in final production.

In the Face of Death

Rifts Bestiary Volume Two

COMING: Rifts® Bestiary Volume Two – Summer 2020

This is the second big, “monster book” reference for Rifts®. We anticipate three volumes in the series, more if we decide to make ghosts, spirits and Entities and/or Creatures of Magic part of the Bestiary series. Much like Volume One, Rifts® Bestiary™ Volume Two collects 70-100 monsters and animals plus 12-24 new beasts found across Rifts North America. The anticipated page count is 224-256 pages.

Each description is updated, expanded, and highly detailed to present players with exotic and alien creatures as pets, guardians and riding animals, as well as slobbering monsters to battle and fierce beasts for Game Masters to throw at their players. Each is designed to offer adventure ideas, offers notes on young, adult, male and female creatures, and is accompanied by a map that shows at a glance where the beast can be encountered.

You have seen Rifts® Bestiary™ Volume One so you know what you can expect in Volume TWO, though we have some fun surprises planned for it. Much of the artwork is completed, the descriptions have been gathered, and the rewriting and expansions started. We are anticipating a summer 2020 release (Gen Con?). As soon as it is finished and arrives back from the printer, we ship it to you!

All volumes of the Rifts® Bestiary™ series are a great resource for players and Game Masters alike, with creatures that can be used as familiars, pets, riding animals, guard animals, and in some cases, even unlikely allies. Others are slobbering monsters or ravenous predators that include humans and D-Bees among their prey. All provide you plenty of ways to enhance your characters and spice up adventures. And each has a map that shows at a glance exactly where to find these beasts. Ah, but with the Rifts and beings like the Shifter and the Splugorth, any creature may appear anywhere in the world, so be on your toes.

  • Monsters and animals of Rifts North America organized into big, easy to use sourcebooks.
  • Updated and expanded descriptions and information for each existing monster.
  • Updated and uniform stat blocks.
  • New exotic creatures – predators, exotic riding animals, beasts of burden, alien horrors, giant insects, and more.
  • A map for every creature showing where it is found.
  • Easily adapted to any Palladium setting – Palladium Fantasy®, Chaos Earth®, Splicers®, Phase World®, the Three Galaxies™, The Mechanoids®, Heroes Unlimited™/Aliens Unlimited™, and others.
  • Basic S.D.C. stats included with each creature description.
  • Fully illustrated, with art by Charles Walton II, Ramon Perez, Robert Atkins, and many others. Written by Kevin Siembieda.
  • 224-256 pages each volume – $26.99 – Cat. No. 897 (Volume Two) – summer release, but taking orders now.

Pre-Order Rifts Bestiary Volume Two

Rifts Coalition Manhunters

UPDATE: Rifts® Coalition Manhunters

I think that Secrets of the Coalition™ States: Coalition Manhunters™ is also gonna be a fun surprise for people and is the next book to be completed. It provides a glimpse into the Coalition States’ Psi-Battalion and one of its top secret Special Ops divisions: the CS Manhunters. A group that can be played as new villains/antagonists or heroes depending on your game’s perspective. And I know folks are going to like the psionics. I’m assigning some additional artwork for it this week.

Pre-Order Coalition Manhunters

Chaos Earth Psychic Scream

UPDATE: Rifts® Chaos Earth® Psychic Scream

This is another book that is going to surprise and wow. New and insane psionics, some taken to the level of super-abilities due to the massive amount of P.P.E. energy surging across the planet and boosting survivors with ambient and alien energy. Some become heroes and defenders of fellow survivors. Some become power-mongers and killers. And still others become just one more monster or madman threatening to destroy humanity. I’m assigning some additional artwork for it this week.

Pre-Order Psychic Scream

Rifts Titan Robotics

UPDATE: Rifts® Titan Robotics

Rifts® Titan Robotics™ is a high-tech toy box of new types of armor, sleek power armor, giant robots, vehicles, and weapons sold by Titan Robotics that will make gamers salivate. I need to assign out a few additional illustrations soon, but most of the art is done.

Pre-Order Titan Robotics

UPDATE: Other titles – like CS Arsenal and Beyond the Supernatural sourcebooks

Please remember, just because I do not mention or list a specific title in an Update, does not mean it has been removed from the production schedule. All it means is that we are focused and talking about more immediate, upcoming releases, or projects we are excited about that week, or there’s no substantive news to report. We are anxious to put as many books you’ve been waiting for into your hands as possible over the next 18 months, as well as new projects being worked on by freelance writers. That includes Rifts® Antarctica, The Disavowed™, Rifts® CS Arsenal™, Chaos Earth® First Responders™, Land of the Damned™ 3, Rifts® Living Nowhere™, Beyond the Supernatural™ sourcebooks, more Fantasy sourcebooks and other titles. So if a book you are waiting for is not mentioned in an Update, it means there is nothing new to report, but it should still be in the pipeline and news for it will be coming in the weeks or months ahead. Right now, we are focused on releases for the next six months, which by our count is 6-7 titles. And many of them are in various stages of final production or development. We are shooting for one or two new physical book releases every month as well as a couple new PDF products on DriveThruRPG.

A Great Cataclysm caused by the explosive return of magic. Now fast forward 300 years into the future where magic, dragons, and mythic gods coexist with cyborgs, giant robots and super-science rediscovered from humanity's Golden Age as humans rise from a lengthy Dark Age.

Palladium Collectibles, Negatives, Artwork, other Collectibles and Toys are always available in Kevin’s Online Toy & Collectibles eBay Store along with other good things

My eBay store is one of the few places where you can find original artwork by Charles "Chuck" Walton, Kevin Long, and others, as well as one-of-a-kind negatives from classic Rifts® and other Palladium RPG books (they look awesome framed!), rare Palladium collector hardcovers, signed books, other Palladium memorabilia, toys from my personal collection and other collectibles. Check every couple of weeks because we often post new stuff or offer a new sale. There is a sale on negatives starting today, in fact.

Other one-of-a-kind original artwork available by me (Kevin Siembieda), Kevin Long, Charles Walton II (money goes to the artist), other artists, as well as collectible negatives, prints, limited edition hardcovers, proofreader copies, out of print items, Star Wars toys, Marvel toys and many other toys and collectibles from my personal collection. Alex and I will keep adding items as our busy schedules allow, but we have a lot of fun collectibles available now and coming soon. Hundreds of items. Take a look every weekend for new additions.

Available now: One-of-a-kind book negatives. Negatives were very popular items at the Palladium Open House and people went crazy over them at Gen Con – including actor Joe Manganiello who scooped up a pile of TMNT negatives, while Palladium's own Mark Oberle, Carmen Bellaire, Brandon Aten and a whole lot of Palladium gamers went for negatives from Rifts® New West, Lone Star and Free Quebec. Fun.

Negatives are unique and attractive, one-of-a-kind (on rare occasions two-of-a-kind if a page was replaced or a second edition was made) works of art that resemble woodcut art and are very dynamic conversation pieces. Before digital printing, pages of a book were laid out by hand on a board, and each page was photographed. The plastic film negatives were then "ganged" on a massive sheet of Mylar 16 pages per big sheet, and the printing plates were made from the negatives – everything white, printing black.

When our printer, McNaughton and Gunn, went completely digital, they asked if Palladium Books wanted the negs, otherwise they would be destroyed. Regrettably, I let a few dozen be destroyed, but the negatives of many books were sent to Palladium. They have sat in our warehouse for years until I started to offer them for sale. I have also started signing the negatives in silver and each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Each negative comes on a white board inside a plastic magazine bag and looks fabulous framed! Fits in an 8x10 inch matt opening in a frame (each neg is roughly 8½ x 11 inches).

Closing Thoughts

The weekend and first few days of this week were rough on me for some reason. Some of it business related, a lot of it Covid19 anxiety I think, including a virus nightmare on Tuesday, but I got fired up writing on Wednesday. That should get me doing more Murmurs as well as seeing work progressing on various new books. I want to finish In the Face of Death, then CS Manhunters, then I think Rifts® Titan Robotics and Rifts® Bestiary Vol. 2, unless I slip in a “quickie” title or two. I cannot wait to see Steve Dawes’ Creature Feature manuscript and I am hankering to finish the Forgotten People sourcebook for Palladium Fantasy.

So far, Gen Con (scheduled for the last couple days of July and first few of August) has not been cancelled or rescheduled. I’m torn about it. On one hand I hope it still happens, on the other hand, it might be better, safer if it did not. Will it see its usual attendance or will it be reduced? A lot of people from across North America and overseas attend this wonderful event, but this year? See, these are just some of the things going through my mind. Gotta focus on books, I’m the Machine, after all. Lol.

Enjoy the extended super sale and start creating intelligent, bipedal mutant animals, superhumans, martial arts masters and all kinds of heroes. As I have been saying, use your gaming and role-playing powers of imagination to escape the Stay At Home orders and have some laughs and fun and adventure across the infinite Megaverse. And as always, please be smart and safe to stay healthy.

In the Face of Death

NEW! In the Face of Death – A Dead Reign® Sourcebook – In final production

In the Face of Death™ is part survival guide and part cityscape setting that I believe is unlike anything you have ever quite seen or considered before in a zombie RPG. I hope In the Face of Death™ makes you look at the zombie apocalypse setting in a new and expanded way that presents to you an endless wealth of ideas and adventure. The zombie element really puts such a fun and deadly twist on the traditional post-apocalypse game setting. One where survival after the collapse of human civilization is complicated by the fact that undead creatures lurk EVERYWHERE. It is like the movie A Quiet Place only even more horrifying and suspenseful. It combines elements of survival in a post-apocalyptic world, horror, zombies, madness, and classic dungeon exploring with a touch of something different and unique. This is a book that pushes the genre and builds a world of adventure built upon human ingenuity, courage, hope, and madness. It is very close to completion.

  • Rethinking the Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Survival in the urban environment.
  • Living on the rooftops in the heart of the city.
  • Urban homesteads, resources, defenses, traps, and more.
  • Death Cults, a different type of danger.
  • Bad people, Gutter Rats, Flesh Peddlers, and more.
  • Heroic Masked Lunatics – a new type of hero, as player characters.
  • Kids, teenagers, and young survivors as player characters.
  • 100+ adventure hooks and dozens of additional ideas to take your zombie campaign to new heights.
  • Cover by E.M. Gist. Interior art by Nick Bradshaw.
  • Written by Kevin Siembieda and Mark Oberle. Adaptable to other settings like Rifts®, Nightbane®, Heroes Unlimited™, and more.
  • 128 pages – $18.99 retail – Cat. No. 237 – in final production.

Rifts Coalition Manhunters

COMING! Rifts® Coalition Manhunters – A Secrets of the Coalition States Sourcebook

A secret division within the Coalition’s Psi-Battalion, the CS Manhunters hunt not only the most dangerous spies and fugitives, but also their own. Coalition soldiers, brass, government leaders, and anyone who becomes designated as having gone rogue, AWOL, or turned traitor (including the Disavowed), become targets of CS Manhunters to be tracked down and brought to justice. This elite force of psychics, Kill Hounds, and manhunters are trained killing machines who follow orders without question and kill without hesitation.

More often than not, the assignment is straight-up find and terminate. If your name has been given to a Manhunter squad, your fate is sealed, and no one is untouchable. The CS Manhunters operate in secret, find their target, terminate, and vanish as if they were never there at all. They don’t seek credit or limelight. They serve their country from the blood-soaked shadows.

Palladium Books® – Weekly Update – April 2, 2020

One game system – every genre – countless worlds – endless adventure

By Kevin Siembieda

Hi everyone, I hope you are all hanging tough like we are. The sun is finally shining here in Michigan, and I’m happy to report the Palladium crew remains healthy and virus free. I hope you can report the same.

Thank you for your showing of support in response to the Special Update of March 30, 2020, we are shipping away. This is very much appreciated and needed, especially when everyone is going through these strange, rough times.

Speaking of which, some of the Weekly Updates will follow our usual format while others, like the March 30th one and this one, will take a bit more friendly, conversational, freestyle approach. Much like what I’m doing with my Murmurs from the Megaverse® posts several times a week. Why? A big reason is because Palladium Books is a small, family company, not a big corporation. We know many of you from conventions and Palladium Open House events, and calls to the office, frequent orders, letters, forum posts, and other forms of communication. You have never, ever been just customers to us. You are friends – our extended family – and we care about you. So if I can raise your spirits or make you smile or give you ideas that can help you to escape these glum and scary times, I’m going to do it. We are gaming goofs and family guys just like you. All going through everything you are going through, so we understand how you feel and will try to spread a little positivity and help in what little ways we can.

Murmurs from the Megaverse® are more like ramblings from yours truly. Some of those are short snippets, hellos and shout outs, some are product and company updates, others more lengthy musings. Many will be personal and informal chats and talking out loud as if you were sitting here with me. Some will be ideas for gaming and taking your minds off the troubling and scary stuff. Others will be business and product related to let you know how the Palladium staff and the company are doing during this wild ride. I hope you find them interesting and helpful in some way. If you like them, please spread the word so more people can find them. I’d like to do regular posts on Facebook and Twitter, but my hands are full and I just don’t have the time.

Time for a little light and laughter

That’s what I wrote in a recent Murmur from the Megaverse®. And here are some mutating ninja super-ideas for how to bring a little light and laughter to your gaming table.

Mutant Animal Madness. Many of you love the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles® RPG. I hear it all the time along with requests to reprint the game or do new material (if only we could). Ah, but there is nothing stopping you from playing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles® or any number of your own mutant animals. If you do not have a copy of the old game to pull out of mothballs and get cracking, you can use Palladium’s After the Bomb® RPG (AtB) or Heroes Unlimited™ RPG. Both have rules for creating mutant animals – the same rules that were found in the TMNT RPG.

Actually, After the Bomb® RPG has tweaked, expanded and updated mutant animal rules by Erick Wujcik! This was the last RPG Erick Wujcik created for Palladium Books and it is fantastic. Every bit as good as his Ninja Turtles® RPG rules – actually better, because you can create a much larger range of mutant animals including Chimeras – mutants with the features of 2-3 different animals! How cool is that? To get the modern super-hero/TMNT® vibe, ignore the post-apocalyptic world setting of After the Bomb® and put your mutant animals in our modern world setting as heroes. (Heroes Unlimited™ can help on that front.) Then let the serious super-heroing or zany fun and silliness begin.

Recreate the experience or create a whole new menagerie of mutant animal heroes with the After the Bomb® RPG and Heroes Unlimited™. In the alternative, another way to create and bring super-heroes into ANY game setting is the Heroes of the Megaverse® sourcebook. That’s right, there is this ancient magic tome called The Book of Heroes that appears across the cosmos whenever and wherever “heroes” are needed. The sourcebook is complete with a 101 super abilities and creation rules so that you do NOT even need AtB or HU, or other super-sourcebooks to create and play super-heroes, though they are helpful. You can make a random roll to determine your powers or pick them. And while most of the Heroes of the Megaverse® heroes are not mutant animals, per se, Animal Powers, Animal Metamorphosis, Animal Transformation, Bestial Fury, Insect Powers and Shape Shifting are among the power selections. And Ninja & Superspies™ RPG and Mystic China™ can add some wild martial arts abilities if you want to go that route.

Remember, kids, teens, and folks like you and me who never grew up, LOVE mutant animals, super-heroes and ninjas! So if you are looking for a way to involve your whole family or get your children interested in role-playing, this may be the time and the way to do it.

Run serialized campaigns or adventures as often as you desire. It’s like creating your own weekly or even daily television series, only you and yours are the heroes! You never run out of new episodes because you conjure them right out of thin air from your imagination. Heck, you can use Heroes Unlimited™ and After the Bomb® to recreate that Ninja Turtles® experience or your favorite Marvel or DC super-heroes to make the next 95 Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Justice League movies right there in your kitchen or living room! God, I love role-playing games! You can do anything.

And while I am shooting off ideas, how about digging out Robotech®, old or new. I have always found my Robotech® adventures and campaigns to be spirited, fun, and rousing experiences. Hey, how about combining Robotech® with After the Bomb® mutant animals or Heroes Unlimited™ super beings? Both are plausible as creations of the Genesis Pit or other Protoculture experiments (or accident or aliens), or you can use the premise and stats in the Heroes of the Megaverse® sourcebook to introduce superhumans into any setting (though that would dramatically change the dynamics of Dead Reign®, which might be a ton of fun though very, very different). Or what about cosmic super-hero adventure with Cosmo-Knights and Phase World and the Three Galaxies or Rocket Raccoon and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

All I’m saying is maybe the time is right for some rollicking adventures with lots of fun and laughs. Food for thought. Oh, and to help make it happen, we are putting the following books on sale on the Palladium Books website as well as on DriveThruRPG.com as a PDF sale.

In the Face of Death

UPDATE: In the Face of Death (Zombie Apocalypse) – in production

In the Face of Death™ is part survival guide and part cityscape setting that I believe is unlike anything you have ever quite seen or considered before in a zombie RPG. I hope In the Face of Death™ makes you look at the zombie apocalypse setting in a new and expanded way that presents to you an endless wealth of ideas and adventure. The zombie element really puts such a fun and deadly twist on the traditional post-apocalypse game setting. One where survival after the collapse of human civilization is complicated by the fact that undead creatures lurk EVERYWHERE. It is like the movie A Quiet Place only even more horrifying and suspenseful. It combines elements of survival in a post-apocalyptic world, horror, zombies, madness, and classic dungeon exploring with a touch of something different and unique. This is a book that pushes the genre and builds a world of adventure built upon human ingenuity, courage, hope, and madness. It is very close to completion.

  • Rethinking the Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Survival in the urban environment.
  • Living on the rooftops in the heart of the city.
  • Urban homesteads, resources, defenses, traps, and more.
  • Death Cults, a different type of danger.
  • Bad people, Gutter Rats, Flesh Peddlers, and more.
  • Heroic Masked Lunatics – a new type of hero, as player characters.
  • Kids, teenagers, and young survivors as player characters.
  • 100+ adventure hooks and dozens of additional ideas to take your zombie campaign to new heights.
  • Cover by E.M. Gist. Interior art by Nick Bradshaw.
  • Written by Kevin Siembieda and Mark Oberle. Adaptable to other settings like Rifts®, Nightbane®, Heroes Unlimited™, and more.
  • 128 pages – $18.99 retail – Cat. No. 237 – in final production.

In the Face of Death

Rifts Bestiary Volume Two

COMING: Rifts® Bestiary Volume Two – Summer 2020

This is the second big, “monster book” reference for Rifts®. We anticipate three volumes in the series, more if we decide to make ghosts, spirits and Entities and/or Creatures of Magic part of the Bestiary series. Much like Volume One, Rifts® Bestiary™ Volume Two collects 70-100 monsters and animals plus 12-24 new beasts found across Rifts North America. The anticipated page count is 224-256 pages.

Each description is updated, expanded, and highly detailed to present players with exotic and alien creatures as pets, guardians and riding animals, as well as slobbering monsters to battle and fierce beasts for Game Masters to throw at their players. Each is designed to offer adventure ideas, offers notes on young, adult, male and female creatures, and is accompanied by a map that shows at a glance where the beast can be encountered.

You have seen Rifts® Bestiary™ Volume One so you know what you can expect in Volume TWO, though we have some fun surprises planned for it. Much of the artwork is completed, the descriptions have been gathered, and the rewriting and expansions started. We are anticipating a summer 2020 release (Gen Con?). As soon as it is finished and arrives back from the printer, we ship it to you!

All volumes of the Rifts® Bestiary™ series are a great resource for players and Game Masters alike, with creatures that can be used as familiars, pets, riding animals, guard animals, and in some cases, even unlikely allies. Others are slobbering monsters or ravenous predators that include humans and D-Bees among their prey. All provide you plenty of ways to enhance your characters and spice up adventures. And each has a map that shows at a glance exactly where to find these beasts. Ah, but with the Rifts and beings like the Shifter and the Splugorth, any creature may appear anywhere in the world, so be on your toes.

  • Monsters and animals of Rifts North America organized into big, easy to use sourcebooks.
  • Updated and expanded descriptions and information for each existing monster.
  • Updated and uniform stat blocks.
  • New exotic creatures – predators, exotic riding animals, beasts of burden, alien horrors, giant insects, and more.
  • A map for every creature showing where it is found.
  • Easily adapted to any Palladium setting – Palladium Fantasy®, Chaos Earth®, Splicers®, Phase World®, the Three Galaxies™, The Mechanoids®, Heroes Unlimited™/Aliens Unlimited™, and others.
  • Basic S.D.C. stats included with each creature description.
  • Fully illustrated, with art by Charles Walton II, Ramon Perez, Robert Atkins, and many others. Written by Kevin Siembieda.
  • 224-256 pages each volume – $26.99 – Cat. No. 897 (Volume Two) – summer release, but taking orders now.

Pre-Order Rifts Bestiary Volume Two

Rifts Coalition Manhunters

UPDATE: Rifts® Coalition Manhunters

I think that Secrets of the Coalition™ States: Coalition Manhunters™ is also gonna be a fun surprise for people and is the next book to be completed. It provides a glimpse into the Coalition States’ Psi-Battalion and one of its top secret Special Ops divisions: the CS Manhunters. A group that can be played as new villains/antagonists or heroes depending on your game’s perspective. And I know folks are going to like the psionics. I’m assigning some additional artwork for it this week.

Chaos Earth Psychic Scream

UPDATE: Rifts® Chaos Earth® Psychic Scream

This is another book that is going to surprise and wow. New and insane psionics, some taken to the level of super-abilities due to the massive amount of P.P.E. energy surging across the planet and boosting survivors with ambient and alien energy. Some become heroes and defenders of fellow survivors. Some become power-mongers and killers. And still others become just one more monster or madman threatening to destroy humanity. I’m assigning some additional artwork for it this week.

Pre-Order Psychic Scream

Rifts Titan Robotics

UPDATE: Rifts® Titan Robotics

Rifts® Titan Robotics™ is a high-tech toy box of new types of armor, sleek power armor, giant robots, vehicles, and weapons sold by Titan Robotics that will make gamers salivate. I need to assign out a few additional illustrations soon, but most of the art is done.

Pre-Order Titan Robotics

UPDATE: Other titles – like CS Arsenal and Beyond the Supernatural sourcebooks

Please remember, just because I do not mention or list a specific title in an Update, does not mean it has been removed from the production schedule. All it means is that we are focused and talking about more immediate, upcoming releases, or projects we are excited about that week, or there’s no substantive news to report. We are anxious to put as many books you’ve been waiting for into your hands as possible over the next 18 months, as well as new projects being worked on by freelance writers. That includes Rifts® Antarctica, The Disavowed™, Rifts® CS Arsenal™, Chaos Earth® First Responders™, Land of the Damned™ 3, Rifts® Living Nowhere™, Beyond the Supernatural™ sourcebooks, more Fantasy sourcebooks and other titles. So if a book you are waiting for is not mentioned in an Update, it means there is nothing new to report, but it should still be in the pipeline and news for it will be coming in the weeks or months ahead. Right now, we are focused on releases for the next six months, which by our count is 6-7 titles. And many of them are in various stages of final production or development. We are shooting for one or two new physical book releases every month as well as a couple new PDF products on DriveThruRPG.

A Great Cataclysm caused by the explosive return of magic. Now fast forward 300 years into the future where magic, dragons, and mythic gods coexist with cyborgs, giant robots and super-science rediscovered from humanity's Golden Age as humans rise from a lengthy Dark Age.

Palladium Collectibles, Negatives, Artwork, other Collectibles and Toys are always available in Kevin’s Online Toy & Collectibles eBay Store along with other good things

My eBay store is one of the few places where you can find original artwork by Charles "Chuck" Walton, Kevin Long, and others, as well as one-of-a-kind negatives from classic Rifts® and other Palladium RPG books (they look awesome framed!), rare Palladium collector hardcovers, signed books, other Palladium memorabilia, toys from my personal collection and other collectibles. Check every couple of weeks because we often post new stuff or offer a new sale. There is a sale on negatives starting today, in fact.

Other one-of-a-kind original artwork available by me (Kevin Siembieda), Kevin Long, Charles Walton II (money goes to the artist), other artists, as well as collectible negatives, prints, limited edition hardcovers, proofreader copies, out of print items, Star Wars toys, Marvel toys and many other toys and collectibles from my personal collection. Alex and I will keep adding items as our busy schedules allow, but we have a lot of fun collectibles available now and coming soon. Hundreds of items. Take a look every weekend for new additions.

Available now: One-of-a-kind book negatives. Negatives were very popular items at the Palladium Open House and people went crazy over them at Gen Con – including actor Joe Manganiello who scooped up a pile of TMNT negatives, while Palladium's own Mark Oberle, Carmen Bellaire, Brandon Aten and a whole lot of Palladium gamers went for negatives from Rifts® New West, Lone Star and Free Quebec. Fun.

Negatives are unique and attractive, one-of-a-kind (on rare occasions two-of-a-kind if a page was replaced or a second edition was made) works of art that resemble woodcut art and are very dynamic conversation pieces. Before digital printing, pages of a book were laid out by hand on a board, and each page was photographed. The plastic film negatives were then "ganged" on a massive sheet of Mylar 16 pages per big sheet, and the printing plates were made from the negatives – everything white, printing black.

When our printer, McNaughton and Gunn, went completely digital, they asked if Palladium Books wanted the negs, otherwise they would be destroyed. Regrettably, I let a few dozen be destroyed, but the negatives of many books were sent to Palladium. They have sat in our warehouse for years until I started to offer them for sale. I have also started signing the negatives in silver and each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Each negative comes on a white board inside a plastic magazine bag and looks fabulous framed! Fits in an 8x10 inch matt opening in a frame (each neg is roughly 8½ x 11 inches).

Closing Thoughts

It has been something of an up and down week for me. I bet for you too, which is why I’m trying to send you some positive energy and fun gaming ideas to light up your days. As for me, the week is starting to brighten as I get back into the creative groove writing.

Shipping out orders to keep you smiling and your imaginations burning bright. We may only be a skeleton crew, but we are continuing to ship out orders, and I’m writing away as best I can. We are trying to keep a positive attitude and are working to put new books into your hands. In fact, a number of new book ideas hit me just yesterday. Of course, gotta finish the ones we have already announced first, but I may have some surprises coming your way. Muhuhuhahaha. Uh oh, slipping into my Doctor Frankenstein creative mode.

Still standing strong. So far, the Palladium crew is all reporting being healthy and virus free, and we mean to keep it that way. We are staying at home, practicing social distancing, washing our hands like surgeons, focusing on the positive, and working to be safe and productive. Please do the same.

Enjoy our Mutant Animal, Ninja, Super-Heroes book and PDF sales and enjoy superhuman adventures and bring some light and laughter into your homes. Remember, you aren’t trapped helpless in your homes. You are gamers, you enjoy cosmic adventure across the Megaverse®. Game on.

Rifts Coalition Manhunters

COMING! Rifts® Coalition Manhunters – A Secrets of the Coalition States Sourcebook

A secret division within the Coalition’s Psi-Battalion, the CS Manhunters hunt not only the most dangerous spies and fugitives, but also their own. Coalition soldiers, brass, government leaders, and anyone who becomes designated as having gone rogue, AWOL, or turned traitor (including the Disavowed), become targets of CS Manhunters to be tracked down and brought to justice. This elite force of psychics, Kill Hounds, and manhunters are trained killing machines who follow orders without question and kill without hesitation.

More often than not, the assignment is straight-up find and terminate. If your name has been given to a Manhunter squad, your fate is sealed, and no one is untouchable. The CS Manhunters operate in secret, find their target, terminate, and vanish as if they were never there at all. They don’t seek credit or limelight. They serve their country from the blood-soaked shadows.

Are these powers your family’s salvation or their damnation?

Palladium Books® – Special Update – March 30, 2020

One game system – every genre – countless worlds – endless adventure

By Kevin Siembieda

Hey everyone, if you are like me, this Covid-19 stuff is starting to get to you. Starting to wear you down and make you feel more uncertain and worried with every passing day. The news is all gloom and doom and you are probably feeling helpless to do anything about it, stuck at home with nowhere to go. Everything feels more real. More urgent. Closing in. That’s how I felt this past weekend.

Hold on a minute. If you stop and think about it, nothing has really changed. This is what the experts have been predicting from early on. The projections and concerns haven’t changed. We were just hoping against all odds the experts would be wrong. Well, they are not. And here we are waiting it out. And the worst part is the uncertainty, the feeling of helplessness, and the waiting.

Hey, we’re gamers! We are better equipped to handle this than anyone. We aren’t trapped at home. We can travel anywhere. Not just to any city in the world or the jungles of Africa, but back or forward in time, and to wondrous alien worlds and strange dimensions. This isn’t a joke. I’m not trying to make light of this nor drum up sales. I am completely serious.

Gamers are among the most amazing people I have ever known. Intelligent, resourceful, kind, generous, and blessed with warm hearts and vivid imaginations beyond most people’s comprehension. It is time to use those imaginations. Not to worry and fret about what might befall us or the people we love, but to escape cabin fever and your daily worries by traveling anywhere ... everywhere ... in your mind’s eye. And take your friends and family on that journey with you. If you cannot gather in person, use the telephone, or Skype, or Discord, Roll20, and many other means of connecting.

Use those imaginations to slay dragons, or befriend dragons, or be the dragons! Seriously. Push out the scariness and dread and replace them with wild adventure and raucous laughter across the infinite Megaverse®. I don’t care if you do it with Palladium’s RPGs, D&D, Pathfinder, Shadowrun, GURPS, or whatever, but do it. Do it to help time pass and to prevent falling into despair. Do it to carry your children/siblings/friends and loved ones to lands of heroic adventure and happy endings. Do it to keep the faith and your spirits buoyed, and to bring some relief.

Don’t forget, most of us will survive this. Even the vast majority – like 98% – of the people who catch Covid-19 will survive. In the meanwhile, please be smart, stay at home, don’t hoard, practice social distancing, wash hands frequently, and unleash those beautiful imaginations.

Stay hopeful and positive. I know that is more difficult than those four little words sound. I know, because I’m a very positive and hopeful person by nature, and I have been battling the blues myself. That is why I have written this and present it as the first thing you read rather than as my Closing Thoughts. I hope you read this and find some spark of inspiration, ideas, a smile, or something – anything – to help you get through these frightening and uncertain times. You are not alone. We are in this together and we will get through it one way or another.

I don’t know how any of this will end for us, the Palladium crew, or the company itself, but we are not giving up hope. We continue to mine our imaginations, write books, and keep game product available. Most important, we refuse to feel defeated. We are keeping our friends and loved ones close to our hearts and in our thoughts, if not in person. I implore you to do the same. Take a deep breath. Smile. Unfurl your imagination and game on, damn it. Game on.

 

And now for some Reminders, Sales ending, and Business stuff (and I’ll try to keep it short).

Shipping out orders and staying frosty

We may only be a skeleton crew of a few, but we are continuing to ship out orders as they come in. Of course I am taking precautions, cleaning surfaces, wearing gloves as we process orders, etc. We appreciate your show of support as many of you continue to order Palladium product.

 

Getting near the finish line on one book

I have been putting the wraps on In the Face of Death™, an epic adventure sourcebook for the Dead Reign® Zombie Apocalypse series. I’m rethinking the Zombie Apocalypse setting in this adventure sourcebook and trying to expand the range of characters and adventure opportunities and the setting as a whole. There is so much you can do with this setting that is seldom explored.

 

Rifts® CS Manhunters is next on my plate

There is some really great stuff in this book. It is something of a prelude to Rifts® Disavowed and CS Arsenal™, and all three books fit together nicely. Not just that, but CS Manhunters™ reveals more about the Coalition States’ Psi-Battalion and provides more characters and ammo to deal with the demon plagues and events of Rifts® Megaverse® in Flames and Rifts® Heroes of Humanity™. All of which is laying the groundwork for something huge.

 

Rifts® Titan Robotics

This book is a high-tech toy box laced with secrets and reveals about Archie-Three and his network of robots and spy-bots. Most of the artwork and a lot of the writing for this hotly anticipated Rifts® sourcebook is done. Rifts® Titan Robotics™ will be epic. It will be followed by several other titles, Rifts® Bestiary™ Volume Two chief among them in time for a Gen Con/summer release.

 

Murmurs from the Megaverse®

What is it about a crisis that gets me yapping? I am trying to post a new Murmur from the Megaverse® every few days to keep you up to date on what is happening at Palladium Books, the progress of book titles, and my random thoughts and views.

 

We’re still standing

We are too stubborn and have too many great books to finish to get sick. So please, keep orders coming in – the more the merrier – as we continue to process online orders and ship for as long as we can with a skeleton crew.

Meanwhile, we are all healthy and doing fine as we continue to work on upcoming releases. In fact, I need to reach out to my freelance artists and writers to tell them to keep busy by finishing the art and writing they are supposed to be doing. Good ‘ol Glen Evans sent me a couple of small manuscripts this weekend for my consideration for Palladium Fantasy, and Steve Dawes sent me an email with an update on the Creature Feature™ Beyond the Supernatural™ adventure sourcebook he has been working on. Looking good. Keep safe and game on.
