Palladium Books® – Weekly Update – May 27, 2021

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

By Kevin Siembieda

Hi everyone, I hope most of you in the United States are able to take some time off and enjoy the long Memorial Day weekend. Maybe even safely gather with friends and family. While you are relaxing, I want to mention we have 3 sales for your consideration. One sale is for physical books in the Palladium online store. The second sale is for PDF titles on DriveThruRPG, and the third is a sale on my Ebay store (out of print books, negatives, art, toys, and collectibles). See details below.

The exciting news, at least for Rifts® fans, is the two Rifts® 30th Commemorative Hardcovers are finally printed and going on a truck headed for Palladium Books. I know it has been frustrating waiting for these two special books but as I explained in an Update a little while ago, the printing industry is in crisis and slammed with print orders. At least the delay for these was an extra 5 or 6 weeks and not 12 or more! With Monday being the Memorial Day holiday these hotly anticipated hardcovers will probably arrive on Wednesday. We will start shipping as soon as they reach the Palladium warehouse Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of next week. ALL the pre-orders and mixed orders have been prepped, and boxes taped and waiting to be filled. Like you, we cannot wait to see the finished books ourselves, and I especially cannot wait to see what you think of them. We tried to make the Rifts® 30 Year Anniversary editions worth owning as keepsakes in addition to being a functional earlier version of the Rifts® RPG. I hope you will love them. For those of you who never saw the original game, this is your chance to see what launched a beloved RPG phenomenon that has stood the test of time.

The beautiful Rifts® Commemorative hardcovers are available in two versions: 1. Rifts® 30th Hardcover with the color Parkinson painting of the Splugorth Barge – Cat. No. 800HC30, $49.99 retail, with an extra 32 color pages; and 2. Rifts® 30th “Gold” Deluxe Limited Edition – Cat. No. 8000HC30, $75 retail, with an extra 38 color pages – signed and numbered. There are only 200 copies (plus some printer proofs) available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. Both are described below and in the Palladium online store. If you have not ordered your copy of this attractive keepsake, this may be the time to do it. We anticipate the “Gold” Edition to sell out. The Color Cover Edition will be available through the end of the year, probably longer.

COMING later in June! 3 new RPG hardcovers have been sent to the printer for a June Release. They are: 1. After the Bomb® RPG “Bonus” Edition Hardcover – create any mutant animal from a turtle to an elephant, plus 72 pages of bonus material (the original AtB sourcebook and Yucatan Adventures). $39.99 – Cat. No. 503HC. 2. Ninjas & Superspies™ RPG “Bonus” Edition Hardcover, 40+ styles of martial arts, mystic abilities, spies and gadgets, plus 44 pages of bonus material from The Rifter®. $36.99 – Cat. No. 525HC. 3. Dead Reign® RPG Hardcover – The Zombie Apocalypse unleashed! Can you survive? $36.99 – Cat. No. 230HC (same as the softcover edition). The complete descriptions are found below and in Palladium’s online store.

Ninjas and Superspies RPG Hardcover

Dead Reign RPG Hardcover

Dead Reign® RPG Hardcover – The Zombie Apocalypse – June Release

The dead have risen and it would seem to be the end of the world.

Civilization crumbles in a matter of days as hundreds of millions of people die and rise as the walking dead. The hundreds of millions of people who fall to the zombies also rise to join the growing legions of undead. Then the world goes silent.

You are on your own. The army is MIA. There is no government. No law. No television, radio or Internet. No media, cell phones or communications of any kind. Cities and towns have gone dark, and zombies fill the streets.

Death Cults have risen, promising protection from the walking dead.

Retro-Savages have forsaken technology and sacrifice the living to the zombies in hopes of bringing an end to the nightmare.

Brave human survivors refuse to lie down and die! They come from all walks of life. Their common goal: survival as they struggle to forge safe havens away from the cities, rescue other survivors and battle the walking dead without respite. For now at least, the planet belongs to the dead.

Dead Reign® is an excellent introductory game that is easy to learn, fast to play, and fun to read. If you are looking for a zombie game that truly captures the feel of survival after the apocalypse and the nightmare of being stalked by zombies, Dead Reign® is it. Game mechanics are designed to create a real sense of escalating terror and dread when the zombies swarm. Sourcebooks expand the world, player options, and adventure ideas as well as new zombies and dangers.

  • Six Apocalyptic Character Classes (O.C.C.) including the Reaper, Shepherd of the Damned, Hound Master, Apocalyptic Soldier, Scrounger and Ordinary People.
  • Seven types of zombies plus the Half-Living. (Sourcebooks offer many more.)
  • Secrets of the Dead: Everything you need to know about zombies and need to ask.
  • Death Cults, their Priests, power over zombies and goals.
  • Random tables galore and the fundamentals of survival.
  • Strong setting, world overview and many adventure ideas.
  • A complete role-playing game. 224 pages – $36.99 retail – Cat. No. 230HC. Also available as a 224 page softcover RPG ($26.99 retail – Cat. No. 230).

Rifts Titan Robotics

UPDATE: Rifts® Titan Robotics

Here it is, the reveal of the new cover. I hope you like it. I love that it presents the iconic Titan Robotics Combat Robot with a new big gun that hints at what else awaits you inside the book. I also enjoy the combat scene, smoke, and haze of war. Like Northern Gun and the Manistique Imperium, Titan Robotics sells freely to adventurers, mercenaries, and anyone who has the cash. Hence, the owners of these big ‘bots clashing with Coalition Forces.

This is why I call Rifts® Titan Robotics™ a high-tech toy box filled with many new types of Titan Robotics power armors, giant robots, vehicles, weapons, and gear. Some are big bruisers while others are small and sleek. As fun as these new tech toys are, Rifts® Titan Robotics™ delves into the company’s many secrets, including ARCHIE-3’s plans and program to monitor and manipulate the outside world. Learn about Archie’s androids that run Titan Robotics and his current schemes and plans for the future. All of which provides fodder for adventure.

  • New Giant Robots.
  • New Power Armor, equipment and accessories.
  • 30+ power armors and robots, plus other equipment.
  • New weapons, gear and vehicles.
  • Titan Robotics Corporation and structure.
  • Archie’s secret kingdom and plans for the future.
  • New O.C.C.s and key Non-Player Characters (NPCs).
  • Android executives, security and much more.
  • Wellington Industries, campaign prompts and more.
  • Art by Walton, Cummings, Atkins, and others. Cover by Mike Majestic.
  • Written by Matthew Clements and Kevin Siembieda.
  • 160-192 pages (tentative) – $22.99 retail (or $26.99) – Cat. No. 899.

Rifts Bestiary Volume Two

UPDATE: Rifts® Bestiary Volume Two

The second big, “monster book” reference for Rifts® of what we anticipate to be 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.

All volumes of the Rifts® Bestiary™ series are a great resource for players and Game Masters alike.

Designed to offer adventure ideas, offers notes on young, adult, male and female creatures, and all provide plenty of ways to enhance your characters and spice up adventures. Each is accompanied by a map that shows at a glance where the beast can be encountered. Ah, but in the presence of Rifts and magic means any of the creatures 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.

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 – Memorial Day

This year, Memorial Day in America feels more significant than ever. I don’t care where your political allegiance may fall, we owe a debt of gratitude to those who have fought and died for our country. Men and women who strove to keep us safe and free no matter the cost to themselves.

Personally, I always take time to reflect upon not just those who have fallen in war, but all the men and women of every creed and color who have ever served our nation. Ordinary people like you and me who stood tall to take a stand and fight to keep us safe. Sometimes that battle was in distant lands. Other times it is right here, on our own streets.

With the Covid-19 pandemic, there are more fallen to remember this year than the years that have come before. Frontline workers, doctors, nurses, paramedics, police, firefighters, and essential personnel on many fronts. There are also the loved ones we ourselves may have lost. We lost a number of people in the Palladium Family this past year. Some to Covid-19, others from different causes. This weekend we remember and salute them all. The frontliners and our loved ones whose memories we hold in our hearts and minds. Our prayers and warmest regard to their friends and families. You are not forgotten. You are remembered and appreciated. That goes double for those of you still in the fight. Thank you for your service and for going above and beyond the call of duty to help us and keep us safe.

Some people will tell you our country is broken. Others will tell you that America is no longer great. I disagree with both. Are we perfect? Heck, no. Is there reason for change and improvement? Always. Is America great? It damn sure is. Flawed, perhaps, but one of the greatest countries on the planet. So great we often take our freedom for granted and assume it is the same for everyone when it is not. Please do not do that. The great American experiment in democracy is too precious to be taken for granted or lightly. Too many souls have perished to keep America safe and strong and free.

America is a reflection of us. And we are not perfect. Not any of us. There is always room for knowledge and growth, enlightenment and improvement. America is us, so it is what we make it. Let us all strive to be better. Wiser. Kinder. More tolerant. More just. More empathetic. And always united, free, and caring for one another. If we do, things can only get better and America will always remain great.

Enjoy the long weekend, backyard gatherings, our 3 sales, and all the sales that happen this weekend. Laugh and play and celebrate life. Hold those you love close and tell them how much they mean to you. Call or text or email and Skype or Zoom those who are at a distance. And as always, keep those imaginations burning bright and game on.
