NEWS! My friend and fellow writer and publisher Phil Reed and his wife Gina were in town on vacation and arranged a visit to Palladium. If the name sounds familiar it’s because Phil has served as the CEO of Steven Jackson Games for a decade or more and has written and Kickstarted all kinds of things. He’s still with SJG but has stepped down as CEO to pursue personal creative ventures in games, writing, and music. Some of those ventures may be with Palladium Books. It’s too soon to talk about them now, but we’ll definitely keep you posted.


NEWS! Rifts® for Savage Worlds from Pinnacle – I just approved the Rifts® Land of a Thousand Islands and several titles. They were a fun read and look great. I would imagine you are looking at a fall release for these titles.


NEWS! Matthew & Stephanie Clements’ Chicago wedding was wonderful. So was the Saturday brunch. It was sweet to see two people so in love and seemingly perfect for each other. Both have wonderful families. Several cousins on Matt’s side are Palladium/Rifts fans (hey Neil, hey John), which made me the unofficial celebrity guest. Ha, ha, ha. We were delighted to see our dear friend and artist Nick Bradshaw (love that guy) and his wife Katie present which made for a fun surprise! I was also able to spend time with my L.A. pal Drew Cooke. I can never get enough of these wonderful friends, Matt, or Stephanie. Nice wedding and brunch venue, good eats, good company, what more could we ask for? We had a nice time before heading back to Michigan. Wayne Smith and his wife Sheila let me tag along with them, so he did all the driving, which was nice for me.


Consider supporting this Kickstarter and save lives

Relief in the Congo for God's Children from Human Trafficking (RIGHT) is conducting another Kickstarter to raise money for a great cause. Please support Building Resilience in the Congo (BRIC), a group that rescues, educates, protects, and sustains young boys and girls, as well as young women and young men who would otherwise fall victim to regional warlords and rebels. These villains regularly take children and teenagers from their homes and force them into slave labor, or to become child-soldiers and sex workers against their will.

Slavery and sex trafficking are unfathomably cruel and all too real. A pledge as small as $5 or $10 can make a profound difference to these children and young adults.

I personally know the people running this Kickstarter. They are good folks, and ALL the money (after Kickstarter’s fees) go toward building better, stronger, higher defensive walls around a compound that helps, protects and educates young boys and girls rescued from slavery. Many of the people running the program onsite in the African Congo are former child-soldiers and abused females themselves. People who were either rescued and received help themselves or miraculously found their way back to something of a normal life. Now they are trying to rescue and save other children from a similar fate.

The funds of this particular fund-raiser will go to the construction of a defensive concrete wall, a schoolhouse, and iron gate to protect the children and teenagers rescued from this horrific life.

Please contribute if you can and spread the word, even $5-$10 makes a difference. Thank you. I’ll be making my contribution today. – Kevin Siembieda

Palladium Collectibles – at Kevin’s Online Toy & Collectibles eBay Store

I am adding new collectibles and Palladium negatives over the next several weeks, so check ‘em out. Alex and I will try to post new items on a regular basis, so check in every week or so to see what’s new.

One-of-a-kind Palladium Books negatives (special and rare collectibles). Negatives are always very popular items at the Palladium Open House, Gen Con, and conventions, and are catching on as rare collectibles, unique in and of themselves. 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. We have been cutting them loose and making them available to you. I am only keeping a few dozen pages of negatives and a few complete books for myself, the rest are all being slowly offered to you, in no particular order.

  • Each is truly unique, attractive, and fun to have.
  • Own a piece of Palladium Books and RPG history you will treasure.
  • Each was used to print the very book you may have in your collection (1981-2004).
  • Each signed in silver ink by Kevin Siembieda, the founder and owner of Palladium Books. He is also the game designer and often the author or co-author of the book from which the negative originates. And some negatives bear his artwork.
  • Each signed negative comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Each signed negative is a one-of-a-kind work of art (on rare occasions, two-of-a-kind if a page or section of pages were replaced or a second edition was made) that resembles woodcut art, and a very dynamic conversation piece.
  • Each signed negative is on a white board inside a clear plastic bag.
  • Negatives looks fabulous matted or framed! Fits in an 8x10 inch matt opening. Each neg is roughly 8½ x 11 inches.
  • Prices vary depending on the title, the art, and quality of the negative. Note: Many have scratches, or blemishes, and/or an opaque medium on the negative. Still, they look great and are a piece of RPG history. We recommend you carefully examine the photographs of each item to avoid disappointment.
  • We have been making the negatives available, in no particular order, for a number of years, and will continue to do so. However, cutting them loose, signing and bagging is a time consuming process.
  • Note: The negatives from the TMNT RPG, TMNT Adventures, and some Rifts® titles are already sold out. Moreover, the negatives from many titles were destroyed, so when you see one you like, get it when you can. Enjoy.

Original artMy Ebay store is one of the few places where you can find original artwork by me (Kevin Siembieda), Kevin Long, Charles Walton, and others, as well as one-of-a-kind negatives from classic Palladium books (they look awesome framed), and other Palladium memorabilia. Some are concept sketches, others are finished works of art, as well as a selection of prints and posters.

Other collectibles include art prints, posters, comic books, Palladium limited edition hardcovers, out of print items, signed books, one-of-a-kind proofreader copies, Star Wars toys, superhero action figures, and many other toys and items from my personal collection. Yeah, I used to be a crazy toy and art collector. 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.


Closing Thoughts – Feeling positive

Things are hopping here in Palladiumville. We are pursuing all kinds of opportunities behind the scenes like working with Phil Reed and others, entertaining visitors who come to see the Palladium offices and warehouse, meetings with industry insiders, and writing our hearts out to bring you new products.

That food poisoning I had really did a number on me, but I was able to rest and recuperate, in part thanks to Matt’s wedding which was a fun, relaxing break from my usual busy schedule. I have been a juggernaut all week writing and working with artists, as well as dealing with book printer issues, Savage Rifts® book approvals, and a whole lot more. It has been a very productive week and you’ll start seeing the fruits of our labors very soon.

Sales have been very uneven, up and down, so please keep your support coming. We’ll be launching a new Palladium website soon and taking other action to get our products into new market venues. In fact, we have been glad to see an increasing number of independent store owners reach out to us about buying our books directly from Palladium. Reminder, if your favorite hobby store mentions they are having trouble getting Palladium Books products from distributors, please tell them they can buy our products from us. They can make inquiries via the Help Desk or by calling the office (734-721-2900).

I know the world feels crazy and worrisome. The cost of food and other commodities seems to keep climbing (at Palladium we’re trying to hold the line on prices the best we can), and there’s injustice and discord everywhere, but try to stay positive. Don’t let divisive voices divide us or tear you up emotionally. Be true to yourself and your loved ones. Make a difference in the world by not giving in to hate and fear. Stand strong and do good for whomever you can. Even the smallest gestures – a smile, a compliment, a sincere thank you – can make a huge difference in brightening someone’s day. Be a positive force for good and kindness. And don’t despair. Find joy and escape in gaming. Use your imagination to explore new worlds and adventure across the Megaverse®. Remember, you are only limited by your imagination. If you can think it, you can be it.

That’s it for me this week. I have books to write and worlds to build. Game on.

– Kevin Siembieda, Writer, Artist and Friend
