Palladium Books® Weekly Update – May 28, 2015
By Kevin Siembieda
It has been non-stop action since the Palladium Open House.
Over the holiday weekend I took a little time off, but worked six hours both Saturday and Sunday, and put in a full regular, 10 hour day on Monday. Between the excitement of the Palladium Open House and seeing the Mad Max: Fury Road movie (loved it), I was filled with ideas, and spent most of the weekend writing. I did some work on Robotech®, Rifts® and Beyond the Supernatural™. Felt pretty hot writing too. Good stuff all around.
Tuesday, we all spent half the day in the warehouse helping Julius, pack and ship products. People are pretty excited about the slew of new products since the Open House, with the two “RAW Manuscript previews,” T-shirts and prints selling like crazy. I’m glad to see so many of you enjoying the many new products. I personally love the new Palladium Fantasy, Game Master and Rifts® T-shirts, as well as the mouse pads and prints.
When I wasn’t writing or packing boxes, I’ve been taking care of business matters. There are some exciting things brewing as we have a couple of new companies outside the game industry eye-balling two different Palladium I.P.s (intellectual properties) for possible development. And neither is Rifts® orRobotech®. More on this front if and when things move forward. I have a call with one company on Friday. That said, there is a feeling here that Palladium’s fortunes are rising, with an increasing number of possible licensing deals brewing and more people seeming to contacting us every few weeks. Personally, I dream of a day in the near future when there is a Rifts® movie in the works (come on JB Films, please), a couple of TV shows, a videogame or two, and other licenses based on Palladium’s many I.P.s as well as a bunch of things we want to do ourselves. Wouldn’t that be nice? Hey, I can dream, can’t I? Most of the rest of the time and I’ve been writing the Open House Report and bits and pieces of books.
