Huge Sale – Palladium Books® – Weekly Update – March 15, 2024

Update Opening Graphic

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

By Kevin Siembieda & Sean Owen Roberson

We hope you are all enjoying the unseasonable warm weather like we are here in Michigan. This time last year we and a large section of North America were in the deep freeze and getting clobbered by a couple of powerful snowstorms that knocked out power and caused a lot of tree damage. I never chopped up and hauled away so many huge, fallen branches as I did last winter. So this beautiful, spring-like weather is a very pleasant and welcomed surprise. I hope it lasts.

Huge Palladium GM’s Day SALE – 30% discount! Dozens of core rule books, hardcovers, and sourcebooks ideal for Game Masters (and players) are on sale along with a few issues of The Rifter®. This is a great way to try new settings, get adventure material, and build your gaming library; complete product list and details below. Note: We have been so busy that we completely missed telling you about DriveThruRPG’s big, annual GM’s Day Sale of PDF titles. Sorry about that. We hope many of you found it on your own. Last year, Palladium also hosted a similar GM’s Day Sale for physical books too, and you loved it. So we are launching that sale for you today. See complete details below.

General Update: Meanwhile, we continue to pound away on TMNT & Other Strangeness, Rifts® Bestiary Volume 2, Fantasy: Yin-Sloth Expeditions (as I can), and other Palladium projects. By the way, I’ve told a handful of people about the brand new adventure written for the Orcish Empire part of the book by me and John Klinkel, and they have all gone wild over it. You will too. It’s a little something to illustrate the hidden dangers of the past laying in wait in the jungles.

The Valley of the Pharaohs - Expanded 40th Anniversary Edition KICKSTARTER – If you haven’t taken a look at this cool, nostalgic Kickstarter project, you should, especially if you are a Palladium Books collector. This is NOT a Palladium Books Kickstarter, but it is being written by the original Palladium creator, Matthew Balent, and has Palladium’s stamp of approval. Click on the link below for more information:

TMNT and Other Strangeness RPG PRE-ORDER Store is open! Even if you missed the Kickstarter, you can still pre-order the mainstream books, Black, White & Red editions, the Game Master Guide, and Mutagen Green Dice at the low Kickstarter prices. These items will continue to be available from Palladium Books and in stores after product ships to our backers in September, but will be $5-$10 higher when they go to retail, so this is a way to save some money in the long run.

NEW! TMNT & Other Strangeness Remembrance Sneak Preview – toward the end of this Update. The written remembrances for the Turtles and Erick Wujcik appearing in the TMNT & Other Strangeness RPG Redux editions are so fun and wonderful that the next few Weekly Updates will showcase a few of them as sneak previews over the next several weeks. They can be found just before Closing Thoughts, plus additional thoughts and memories by me and/or Sean. All should be fun to read for any Palladium Books fan. Enjoy.

Bric Sanctuary needs your HELP. Please, please help if you can. If only 1,000 of you pledged a $5 donation, it would be $5,000 to a noble cause that saves lives. This is one of Sean and my (Kevin Siembieda) favorite charities. All the money goes to the people being helped by the charity and it truly saves and improves lives. Please find it in your heart to support the downtrodden through these valiant efforts to help people in an often forgotten part of the world. These are vulnerable people with no voice. They need our help. Thank you. See complete details elsewhere in this Update. This fundraiser ends in a week or so. Please help.

Heroic The Role-Playing Game Crowdfunding

Here is yet another friend with a crowdfunding/BackerKit offer you might find interesting. This is Andrew “Bear” Collas’s big venture into creating his very own RPG. You may recognize Bear from his increasingly popular gaming podcast. Heck, Sean and I were interviewed on his Four Colour Café just a few weeks ago.

The HEROIC RPG is a tribute to the greatest age in comic history, the Bronze Age of comics (1970 - 1985), a time of Chris Claremont, Dennis O'Niel, Marv Wolfman, and a host of other writers who were able to bring superheroes out of the silliness of the Silver Age, but without the jaded and bitter deconstruction of the coming Iron Age!

HEROIC is also the official RPG of Bear’s own Zenith Universe, a superhero universe that has been built up slowly since 1986 when he began to first run superhero RPGs! Now existing in a pseudo time-lock called 198X, where the Bronze Age has never ended, the universe and game are hand-in-hand together!

HEROIC is also a generic system you can use, modify, or adapt to fit your own setting, or any published setting with a simple, elegant and descriptive d100+ Colour Chart mechanic to play fast and furious super heroic action! It has already reached its basic funding level and continues to soar.

Remembrance Sneak Preview

Remembering the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness RPG and its author Erick Wujcik

The legendary Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness RPG from Palladium Books is one of the first RPGs I ever played, flipped through, and rolled up characters for. There was so much awesomeness between the covers of the core book that it was hard to really wrap my young mind around it all. Plus, it was such an amazing game that the process of just rolling up characters was fun all on its own.

In addition to TMNT being the first comic book I ever collected, it was also my introduction to Palladium Books and their world of RPGs. I was already playing D&D at the time but TMNT was on another level. Crazy animal characters, aliens, and oh yes, Ninjas!

With the news of the rerelease I could not dust off my old copy and start telling my kids about it fast enough. Thank you to Eastman and Laird for the stunning and bold art and the mind-blowing stories and thank you Kevin, Erick, and the crew at Palladium for gifting the world with this epic game!

[Note: Just as I do for the Christmas Surprise Package Comments from Fans Like You, I will include a few of my own thoughts and memories (sometimes Sean will too). I hope you enjoy this new, limited, feature. It was Sean’s idea and I love it. – Kevin Siembieda]

Yep, Steven Cummings is a huge Palladium Books fan. When he moved to live in Japan many years ago, he had to leave most of his books behind, but made certain he took the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness, Robotech RPG, and a few other Palladium titles with him. In fact, he still has those original books on his shelf. I know, because he showed them to me during a Zoom call. Steven cheerfully jumped at the chance to create a fun page of tribute art as well as the remembrance above; both appearing in the final publications.

We love working with Steven and would have him do a lot more art for us except Marvel Comics has been keeping him super-busy illustrating various Star Wars titles these past few years. So busy, he had to make time to create his tribute art for the TMNT & Other Strangeness Redux. You can look forward to seeing his artwork – along with Mike Majestic, Mike Mumah, Amy L. Ashbaugh, and others – in the upcoming Rifts® Antarctica World Book.

Closing Thoughts by Sean – The TMNT & OS Redux is Radical

Howdy Friends,

We just had a big fan, a retiring firefighter, visit the office from Chicago. During our chat we had the chance to show him the prototype of the new Mutagen Green Liquid Dice set that we just received that morning from our manufacturer, and he said every single one of his players will absolutely want a set. We agreed because Kevin, Alex, Caleb and I couldn’t stop rolling the dice to see how they swoosh around and to gaze deeply into their sparkling green center. [I love ‘em and I’m not a dice person. ~ Kevin]

We showed off the layout in progress for the TMNT&OS Redux Edition, which elicited satisfying feedback and fun discussion about how well all of the amazing full color art meshes with the updated presentation of each page. We also chatted about the rules clarifications and other content updates being included. While Kevin and I consider these updates to be pretty simple and straightforward, I think many of you will get lots of gaming mileage out of them.

Lastly, since it is an important part of our current work, I just wanted to mention the sheer volume of completely new tribute art that is going into these books – including a couple of pieces by Kevin Siembieda! With the last few artists submitting their illustrations just in the nick of time, the number of tribute artists continues to grow. It’s exciting to see the “behind-the-scenes” sections of the books fill up with amazing art and heartfelt remembrances.

I love it when a plan comes together. [Me too! ~ Kevin]
