2 Fantasy Sales - Palladium Weekly Update - June 14, 2024


Hot Sales * Interview Saturday * Gen Con Info
ALL Palladium Fantasy 30% Off in Softcover

Happy Friday, Palladium Fans!

What’s Hot?


I hope you are all enjoying the end of spring, because summer officially starts next week. The weather in Palladiumville has been up and down, but mostly unseasonably cool; not that we’re complaining. In fact, it looks like we’ll be in the 90s Fahrenheit by Monday. We have been hard at work on numerous projects, but more on that in Closing Thoughts.


The big news this week is our Fantastic Fantasy Sale in which we have special offers for all things magical. That includes all Palladium Fantasy titles, all hardcovers, and select other RPG books and sourcebooks that fit the bill. These are all physical books. See the complete details below, enjoy, and please spread the word. One week only. Don’t miss it.


DriveThruRPG Sale – a similar Fantastic Fantasy Sale for all Palladium Fantasy PDF titles and select other titles is also taking place on DriveThruRPG.com and includes first edition and second edition rules books. One week only. Build that PDF library.


What’s hot at Palladium this week. Rifts® always, but we’re seeing a lot of excitement for all Palladium Fantasy titles, Nightbane (Urban Fantasy) and its sourcebooks, and Beyond the Supernatural and its sourcebooks. After the Bomb sourcebooks are also consistently selling.

Being Productive


While Sean has been fast at work on the TMNT Kickstarter books and exclusives and coordinating approval with Paramount/Nickelodeon, we have been working on several other things. We sent a dozen titles to the printer for reprints, including Civilization Gone, one of the most popular Dead Reign Sourcebooks which has been out of stock for a while, and a bunch of books we were out or nearly out of stock like Rifts® Japan, Rifts China 1 & 2, and some of the Palladium Weapon Series titles. I will also be sending in the Rifts novels, Rifts Index Volume One, and a dozen other titles for reprint in a couple weeks. Oh, we sent in the three mugs too (Rifts logo, Heroes Unlimited logo, Palladium Fantasy), the T-shirts next (we decided to go with just the classic Heroes Unlimited logo for the HU shirt and mug).


I’m thrilled to report that my creative juices are flowing and I have been productive writing. Not just penning these Weekly Updates, but work on book titles. My main focus is to finish Yin-Sloth Expeditions and send it to the printer so we have it in time for Gen-Con, but I have also been making notes about other projects as they come to me, including Fantasy, Beyond the Supernatural, and Rifts books. I’m pounding away and juggling a great many projects. Of course, Rifts Bestiary Vol. 2 and Rifts Antarctica are also very much on our minds. Can’t talk about some of the other projects but they’re fun and exciting.


Caleb Nelson has proven to be an asset in the warehouse where he’s killing it on every level. Just this week we got a letter from a customer that reads, “Best customer service ever! Thank you for being amazing!” Nice.

A Meeting of Friends


Sean and I have had a number of meetings and visitors at the Palladium office and warehouse the past few weeks. The most recent was a pleasant visit with Rick Meints, the President of Chaosium, last Friday. Rick enjoyed seeing the place and said he had office-envy, because at present, Chaosium staff all work remotely with no central warehouse or office location. We ended the evening with dinner at our favorite mom and pop Italian restaurant, Deluca’s in Garden City. I appreciated the good company and being distracted from the knowledge it was Kathy Simmons’ birthday. I miss her so, but I’m doing better every day. It helps that I know she would want me hard at work knocking out books and making Palladium strong, so that’s what I’m doing. My thanks to those of you who sent well wishes.


Reminder that Sean and I will be chatting live on Legion of Myth this Sunday afternoon and do not miss our Fantastic Fantasy Sale – physical books from Palladium and PDF books from DriveThruRPG.com for one week only. Take care of yourselves and each other, and game on.
