Gen Con 2016 was amazing for us. We are back and full of energy and excitement about the array of product coming your way from us in the months ahead and over the next year.
I don’t know if it was the atmosphere at Gen Con itself or the energy generated by talking with a wide array of gamers about our plans for Robotech®, Robotech® RPG Tactics™, Rifts® and other projects, or a combination of the two, but we all came back from Gen Con brimming with enthusiasm. Even the drive to and from Gen Con was an adrenaline rush of ideas and brainstorming. I was so pumped up on Tuesday (we got back late Monday afternoon), that I got to the office early and posted a note on my door that read: “Can’t talk. Hot writing!” I didn’t emerge from my office until 6 hours later to eat lunch and discuss the many ideas and plans I had been jotting down.
I want to thank the many fans with whom we confided, and who shared their ideas, experiences and suggestions. Your feedback and input were inspiring and helpful, as always.
UPDATE: Heroes of Humanity is selling fast and furious
Rifts® CS Heroes of Humanity was a hot seller at Gen Con and continues to be our Number One selling sourcebook online and in stores, and that’s according to Palladium’s distributors. That’s great, because Rifts® Heroes of Humanity — along with CS Arsenal and The Disavowed — are setting up something truly huge for Rifts® that happens next year.
