Xmas Surprise Package UPDATE – Dec. 16, 2014
By Kevin Siembieda
It’s not too late to order a Christmas Surprise Package in time for Christmas!
Order via UPS Ground or Priority Mail by December 18 (or sooner) if you live EAST of the Mississippi River and get it by (or before) Christmas Eve, and without expedited shipping costs. UPS Ground delivers in 2-3 business days to the eastern half of the USA (add a day for Palladium to process your order). That means you can order tonight, tomorrow and even THURSDAY night (December 18) via UPS Ground or Priority Mail and still get your Christmas Surprise Package by Christmas Eve (possibly sooner)! That’s barring bad weather, delays/trouble en route, and Palladium being unable to process your Surprise Package quickly and without delay.
If you live east of the Rocky Mountains and order today or tomorrow (Wednesday) via UPS Ground or Priority Mail you should also be able to get your Christmas Surprise Package by Christmas Eve, but I don’t know if we can guarantee it. Everyone else, I’m afraid, will have to choose some sort of expedited service to get it in time for Christmas. If you live outside the USA, we can not guarantee delivery in time for Christmas no matter the method of shipping.
NOTE: The Palladium staff will be shipping as fast as we can, with your order usually going out the NEXT DAY up until December 23, 2014. So if you place an order, we will try to make sure you get it by Christmas.
Don’t need it by Christmas? Perfect, you don’t have to worry about shipping and can still take advantage of the Christmas Surprise Package offer to get gifts for upcoming birthdays, anniversaries and other occasions, or fill in holes in your collection or try new game settings (Rifts®, Robotech®, Nightbane®, Dead Reign®, Beyond the Supernatural™, Heroes Unlimited™, Ninjas & Superspies™, After the Bomb®, Splicers® and all the rest). We’re happy to put a smile on your face with these items.
For those of you who don’t know what a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package is, it’s usually $88 or more worth of Palladium RPG books for only $42 plus shipping and handling. And because you guys and gals mean so much to us, I often pack in more than $90 worth of product. Oh, and each book will be signed by me (Kevin Siembieda) and available Palladium staff and freelancers if you request it. It is our way of saying thanks to all of you for your support and kindness. The perfect holiday gift for gamers.
Shipping guidelines for Christmas delivery:
Note: Remember, this is a Grab Bag. If you don’t give us a suitable selection of products to pick from (we recommend 10-14 items per each Surprise Package), you may get duplicates and things you may not desire. The availability of Gold Hardcover editions is limited and they typically go to those who make an impressive pitch on why they should get one. PLEASE make sure your address is complete (include Apt. Number) and your order is clear.
- Media Mail – USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. At this point we do not recommend Media Mail. Many still use it and get their order in time, but it is a crap shoot. It has been Palladium’s experience that during the holiday season, Media Mail takes anywhere from 7-21 days (sometimes longer!) to arrive. Ship via Media Mail at your own risk.
- UPS Ground in the USA – Place your order tonight, December 16, to guarantee Christmas delivery. Those of you who live east of the Mississippi River may have till December 18.
- Priority Mail in USA – Place your order by December 18 (should be a bit cheaper than UPS 3-Day Select).
- UPS 3-Day Select in USA – Place your order by December 18 for guaranteed Christmas delivery.
- UPS 2nd Day Air in USA – Place your order by December 21.
- UPS Next Day Air in USA – Place your order by December 22.
- Express Mail in USA – Place your order by December 21.
- To our friends in Canada and overseas – Sorry, but at this point in time we cannot guarantee delivery in time for Christmas. Good luck. Happy Holidays to all of our supporters and fans.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #68 – Available now!
The Rifter® #68 arrived on Monday (December 15), and shipped out to all our subscribers and those of you with pre-orders on Monday via Media Mail. It shipped to Distributors today, Tuesday. It is another fun issue, with 15 pages of “official” Minion War™/Megaverse® in Flames™ material, as well as Rifts® material about True Atlanteans, dimensional hideaways and Magic Tattoos, a Heroes Unlimited™ adventure and a Dead Reign®/Beyond the Supernatural™ crossover adventure, news and coming attractions. And a dynamic John Zeleznik super-hero cover. Remember, you can tweak source material from The Rifter® for use in almost any setting. It is an excellent player and G.M. resource.
To all our friends and fans who observe Hanukkah, we send our warmest regards and wishes for a joyful occasion with loved ones.
That’s all for now
I need to get back to wrapping gifts and shipping out. More news and details in the regular Weekly Update.
