Palladium Books® Weekly Update – Feb. 21, 2015

By Kevin Siembieda

We’ve all been super-busy this week on many different fronts: juggling production of several books, assigning work for upcoming books, advertising, a number of business matters, Robotech®, Bizantium, The Rifter®, convention schedules and logistics. (I have to say, I love AdeptiCon and the event hasn’t even happened yet. This is based on our dealing with their convention staff, who are awesome!) It has been nonstop for me. Oh, and I squeezed in a podcast interview.

I’m going to jump right into news and updates, starting with the reminder that The Rifter® Super-Subscription Drive ENDS next weekend, and we are continuing to post new, free Robotech® RPG Tactics™ support material and other stuff on We’ll also be doing a lot for Robotech® on the Palladium website too. In fact, very soon there will be some exciting and fun changes coming to the Palladium website.

Podcast interview with Kevin Siembieda on

I enjoyed an interview with Mike Dodd earlier this week. It was fun. I think the 40 minutes or so will be edited down to around 20 minutes. Our conversation touched on the gaming industry in the 1980s and 1990s, TMNT®, Robotech®, Rifts® and getting started in the business. It’s fun, and hopefully the first of more to come. It is my understanding that Mike is shooting to have the interview appear on Sunday, but if not, it will be later next week. Check it out. is the primary site, but people can also check out the roleplay podcast Mike Dodd works on with others at

UPDATE: Chaos Earth® Rise of Magic – Ships Next Week – February 24, 2015

We could get Chaos Earth® Rise of Magic™ from the printer as soon as Monday, so get those orders in. Like I said last week, Chaos Earth® Rise of Magic™ is an epic sourcebook for Rifts® Chaos Earth® that explores the explosive return of magic that comes along with the Great Cataclysm. How do survivors of an ongoing cataclysm deal with the sudden appearance of demons, monsters and magic? Magic that appears along the Blue Zones (ley lines) and magic that is suddenly being cast by ordinary people – children and teenagers in particular? Read the book and find out! You won’t be sorry. Taking orders right now.

UPDATE: Chaos Earth® Resurrection sourcebook – spring release

Chuck Walton is working away on the final cover for Chaos Earth® Resurrection and it is looking fantastic. Next he’ll start on the interior artwork. I think Amy Ashbaugh will be contributing to this book too. A March or April release, with Chaos Earth® First Responders by Jason Richards coming in the spring or summer.

UPDATE: Bizantium and the Northern Islands – Getting close

Bigger. Cooler. Almost done. Expanding size to 192 pages because Bizantium is sooooo good, I can’t bear to leave anything out. Compelling back-story, history, and myth. New and additional material about the kingdom, key locations and its people, the Iceborn, monsters, animals, new character classes, new magic and a ton of adventure hooks. I wanted us to be laying out by this weekend, but other demands on our time made that impossible. I’m working on the remaining 100 or so manuscript pages, Wayne will start typesetting and prep work next week. I love Palladium Fantasy and have missed it as much as you guys.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #69

Everything has been selected, all art has been assigned and The Rifter® #69 is in production. Alex is probably busy editing the last of the material as you read this. See the full description elsewhere in this Update.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #70 and beyond . . .

Matthew Clements has spent this week poring through submissions to The Rifter® so that we have material prepped for the next several issues.

UPDATE: Robotech®: Expeditionary Force Marines Sourcebook

The second I’m done with Bizantium I am all over Robotech® Marines. I want this book out in April at the latest. We’re kicking around ideas for a number of Robotech® products for down the road. Keep your eyes peeled.

UPDATE: The Robotech® RPG Tactics Rulebook is available now

Want an extra copy of the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Rulebook for your players? Order it from Palladium Books right now. Heck, Robotech® collectors might want one just to have. A limited quantity of the dynamic full color rule book is available from the Palladium online store. Cat. No. 55105 – $20.00 retail. See the full description elsewhere in this Update.

UPDATE: Robotech® RPG Tactics

It is available in stores across the USA and Canada, and soon in Europe and Australia. Check it out, enjoy and spread the word. Hey, for those of you who would like to see the rules first, you can purchase the full color Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Rulebook directly from Palladium Books. We also intend to make the rules available online. Thousands of people are building and painting miniatures right now. RRT games and tournaments will start popping up at conventions. See what all the excitement is about.

More online support for the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ game is coming in the days and weeks ahead. Some new comprehensive instructions for building the game pieces have been posted up on and much more support for the game line will be coming to DriveThruRPG and the Palladium website in the weeks to come. See the DriveThruRPG update, below.

The FREE Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Color Guide Resource is available on right now, and has been very well received. Please spread the word about the Color Guide and an ever increasing number of comprehensive building instructions.

RRT Europe!

The Robotech® RPG Tactics™ rewards to our backers in Europe should be arriving at the UK port this weekend! We don’t yet know an exact arrival date or how long it may take to clear Customs; probably a few days to a week. Our UK shipper requested we get them all current addresses by last MONDAY – February 16 – but there is still time for some last minute corrections, if necessary, so PLEASE MAKE SURE WE HAVE YOUR CURRENT and CORRECT MAILING ADDRESS.

Australian and all other Overseas Backers, we must have any address change by February 28!

The Robotech® RPG Tactics™ rewards to our backers in Australia will be arriving in port in just under three weeks. Our Australian shipper is requesting we get them all current addresses by February 28 – so they can start prepping for the big mailing as soon as product reaches their doorstep. WE want that too. As do you.

If you have MOVED since the Kickstarter was funded, PLEASE MAKE SURE Palladium Books has your CURRENT address as soon as possible. Europe, that means NOW (this weekend) – EVERYONE ELSE by next Saturday, February 28, 2015. Sooner is always welcomed.

Please check BackerKit ( ) and make sure your address is correct. If anything does not look right, please send us your address in a Kickstarter message or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the Palladium office at 734-721-2903 with your new information.

To make sure we see it, make the subject “Address Change.”

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!!! Do not risk your reward going to the wrong address because YOU failed to update your address. If your rewards go to the wrong address they might be lost and unreplaceable.

NOTE: Palladium Books will NOT be liable for lost goods if you have moved and did not tell us in time. MOREOVER, you will be required to pay the additional shipping to redirect the package to the correct address. Which, if coming directly from the USA, will be considerable ($60-$120 for just Battle Cry) and you will be charged any applicable VAT, duty and other fees. DON’T LET THAT HAPPEN! Please save yourself the time and money and make sure your address is correct right NOW. Thank you very, very much.

Shipping Port Madness: Thankfully, the shipments en route to Europe and Australia are approaching their final destinations, as the insanity in the US West Coast ports reaches new and frightening heights. I heard a report on the news just this morning that the West Coast cargo gridlock continues with no end in sight! The US government has sent the US Secretary of Labor to the West Coast for two days of talks in an effort to help shipping companies and dock workers come to some kind of agreement. Meanwhile, companies importing product from overseas are losing BILLIONS of dollars while goods remain stuck at 30 ports! And their congestion and ever-mounting number of containers piling up have created congestion at ports around the country. That’s insane. It’s like nothing anyone could have imagined. My heart goes out to companies, like Fantasy Flight, who have a great number of products delayed by this insanity.

UPDATE: ROBOTECH® at AdeptiCon – March 19-22, 2015, Chicago –

Palladium will be there selling product and running demos. Chat with Kevin Siembieda, Wayne Smith and Jeff Burke, and play in the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Tournament. We hope to see many of you there.

Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Tournament – Battle for Macross City – It’s big. It’s fun. There are prizes. Register now to make sure you get to play. We’ve been told the more people who register, the bigger the event will become. Here are the highlights:

UPDATE: – FREE Robotech® RPG Tactics color guides, detailed and comprehensive building instructions, The Rifter® #59 and more are available now

So far that includes some game cards, the massive mecha painting/color design templates (more than 100 images in color and black and white – and an awesome resource for any Robotech fan), and now some detailed assembly instructions, with MUCH more coming. There is much more to come for Robotech® RPG Tactics™ and other Palladium game lines.

UPDATE: 2015 Palladium Open House (POH) – May 15-17, 2015 – at the Palladium warehouse in Westland, Michigan

I’m pulling out all the stops. I’m digging through my archives to have rare limited editions, original artwork, early printings of out of print Robotech® and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles® books – some signed by the late, great Erick Wujcik – unique collectibles that you seldom see, a Rifts® 25th birthday party and more.

On top of that, there will be 30+ Palladium Creators, gaming galore and lots fun and memories to make. I’m hoping for a record turn out this Open House. Come on down even if it’s for one day to meet and get autographs from 30+ awesome artists, writers and Palladium madmen (and women).

The FREE Robotech® RPG Tactics Color Guide Resource

The color guide in the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ rule book contains several classic paint schemes from the Robotech® universe, providing different visual options for every unit in the game. Ah, but what about those of you who want to create your own paint schemes? Use these PDFs available for FREE on as work sheets to create your paint schemes and unique designs on the computer before you go to paint the actual game pieces.

Each of the PDFs provided contains the templates created by artist Jeffrey Burke for the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Rulebook. They are in a digital format so that you can colorize and alter them using Photoshop, Paint, or almost any other graphics program to work out and test your original squadron designs. For your convenience, we included the color art as well as black and white “blank” versions of each unit for those of you who want to start from the ground up.

Test out your paint schemes, see how units look next to each other, and get a feel for how your army will look before you break out the paintbrushes. Enjoy.

Note: And now, for those of you who only want one, two, or a few color guide images, we’ve also put them up as individual files on our website. Visit;view=article&id=765&Itemid=479 to pick and choose the images you want.

Robotech® fans who don’t play Robotech® RPG Tactics™ may want this gorgeous, glossy color book just to have in their collection. Perhaps for the paint guide alone – because the guide, for the first time ever, anywhere, presents all the color schemes for Earth and Zentraedi mecha you see in the TV series (plus some variants). Note: This is the exact same rulebook that is included in the RRT main game box.

The Rifter® #69 – Winter, 2015:

Chaos Earth Rise of Magic

Rise of Magic – Rifts® Chaos Earth® Sourcebook – Ships Next Week

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 Earth RPG

Rifts® Chaos Earth® RPG – 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. They are humanity’s last and only hope to survive the apocalypse that will become known as the Great Cataclysm. These are the heroes you play in a world that can only be described as Chaos Earth.

Rifts Book of Magic

Rifts® Book of Magic – Back in Print – NEEDED for Rise of Magic and the Chaos Earth® RPG setting

Rifts® Book of Magic is 352 pages of nothing but magic – 850+ spells, 370+ magic items, including Rune Weapons, Techno-Wizard items, Bio-Wizard Splugorth creations, and Iron Juggernauts, and more. That’s cover to cover spells and magic items and a few related odds and ends like Atlantean Tattoos and the Nazca Lines. Everything collected from the first 23 World Books, Sourcebooks 1-4, and Siege on Tolkeen 1-6 into one giant reference of magical goodness.

The Rifter 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 we are offering the biggest selection of FREE gifts ever as an enticement. 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, and this year the selection is truly 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®, and Heroes Unlimited™ and other settings. And future issues will have more playing and G.M. tips.

If you haven’t taken a look at The Rifter® lately (if ever), I suggest you try an issue. The Rifter® is an excellent source of ideas, characters, monsters, villains, powers, magic and adventures for your own game. 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. That’s the beauty of the Palladium Megaversal Game System; 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 easily used as a monster, 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 tweak.

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. And The Rifter® is the ultimate source for alternative, new and different ideas, 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. Offer ENDS February 28, 2015.

Bizantium and the Northern Islands

NEW! Palladium Fantasy RPG® Sourcebook: Bizantium and the Northern Islands – Ships March

Bizantium and the Northern Islands™ will be sent to the printer in February, but probably won’t be available to ship until around March 12. The book is epic and will spark your imaginations and inspire adventures across the Island Kingdom, the Great Northern Wilderness and to little known realms like the Great Ice Shelf and Land of the Damned.

The Island Kingdom of Bizantium is a refuge for humans in a region known for its lack of humans as well as its vast wilderness, the Wolfen, monsters, and sea serpents. Bizantium’s impressive fleets of merchant vessels and warships travel the seas and oceans of the world. Its people are noble and heroic. The nation is a growing power in the rest of the world. Which is why other kingdoms, like the Western Empire, want to exert their influence on the throne of Bizantium. The result is that treachery and potential power grabs lurk in the shadows. That is but one small story transpiring in the kingdom of the North. Rebellion and war threaten the Shadow Coast colonies, impending war between the Wolfen and the Eastern Territory could erupt at any time, and ancient secrets, if unleashed, could change the fate of not just Bizantium, but the entire world. Meanwhile, dark forces gather in the icy waters beyond the kingdom, and an evil beyond human comprehension stirs.

Robotech UEEF Marines Sourcebook One

Robotech®: Expeditionary Force Marines Sourcebook One

Robotech®: Expeditionary Force Marines sourcebook is set in space with the UEEF (United Earth Expeditionary Force) led by Admiral Rick Hunter.

Rifts Coalition States, Heroes of Humanity

Rifts® Sourcebook – The Coalition States: Heroes of Humanity

The events unfolding in World Book 35: Megaverse® in Flames threaten to change the entire landscape of Rifts® Earth, as the demonic minions of Hades and Dyval seek to bring Hell on Earth and turn the planet into a dimensional gateway to Armageddon!

The Coalition States, along with Northern Gun and Lazlo, take the lead in the defense of North America. Heroes of Humanity explores the good and bad in the Coalition’s efforts to save humanity and send this new threat back to the pits of Hell.

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.

Rifts® Secrets of the Atlanteans

True Atlanteans are descendants from Earth’s past. The survivors of the sinking of Atlantis (really a dimensional mishap) and travelers of the Megaverse, wielders of Tattoo Magic and other lost mystic arts. Most people regard them as heroes, but are they? The Sunaj Assassins are mythic villains feared by all, yet they too are True Atlanteans who serve dark forces.

For the first time, much of the story behind True Atlanteans and their secrets are revealed.

Rifts® Chaos Earth® Sourcebook: First Responders

The Great Cataclysm has devastated civilization, but humanity fights for survival. The struggles of civilian law enforcement, fire and rescue, and everyday men and women are some of the most epic tales to be told in a world gone to hell. They fight monsters, aliens, the paranormal, the elements, and each other, all with the hope of reclaiming their lives from the Chaos.

Chaos Earth Resurrection

Rifts® Chaos Earth® Sourcebook: Resurrection

In the shattered depths of Wisconsin, survivors are besieged by the dead come back to life. Zombies. But not just any type of zombie, zombies done Rifts-style. And unless the source of the zombie plague can be found and neutralized by NEMA defenders, North America may be overrun by the dead.

This was actually something Taylor White and I have been kicking around for years, even before we released the Dead Reign® RPG line. We think you’ll love it.
