Fantastic Fantasy and Rifts sales remained hot this week. We love the enthusiasm, thank you! Keep those orders coming!

 

Weekly Updates are now posted on the Palladium website.

 

A technical issue prevented us from being able to post our Weekly Updates on the Palladium website. That problem has been solved and you can get caught up on the last several updates as you may desire; Some had cool art and other info you might enjoy.

Palladium Books - 4th of July Sale

 

We thought we would heat up your summer by putting a number of  patriotic RPG titles, most metal and resin miniatures, and a bunch of fun accessories on sale. I mean, everyone needs a Glitter Boy on their desk or shelf (I love the Chainsaw Glitter Boy, and Juicer, and Line Walker, etc.) and I use the Rifts notepad and pens all the time.

The
sale runs thru the 4th of July weekend. Please spread the word and enjoy!

CLOSING THOUGHTS

Turtle Power and Goings On

 

We have a Turtle growing in our warehouse! We contracted renowned sculptor, Miki Ivey, who has created displays with Disney Imagineers, to make a 3D, life-size Ninja Turtle sculpture as part of Palladium’s Gen Con display! It should look like Leonardo just stepped off the cover of the RPG. Come on over to Gen Con Booth 607 to take your photo with Leo, buy books, and get the latest news.

 

Sean is on fire doing final editing and layout tweaks on the Transdimensional Adventures TMNT book, as well as doing the stats for the new mutant animals voted to be added to the RPG by our Kickstarter backers. You folks blew our minds when thousands of you voted. We thank you for your enthusiasm and participation. You are awesome! It may sound silly, but after I saw Sean’s new animal stats, they got me super-excited for these books all over again. And I’m the dang publisher and one of the contributing authors! Lol. These full color, redux collections are just so beautiful and well written. It makes fans of the TMNT so happy.

 

Yin-Sloth Expeditions! Not only is the writing coming along nicely, but I created four new illustrations for the book and I’m working on a sixth. That does not include the full page illustration of the new villain we showed off a while ago. That bad guy and a few of the other illustrations are for the new Orcish Empire adventure that opens the book. But they and that adventure are not the only new material. All the maps were redone, and there are a number of updates and adventure hooks to the original setting and key locations. Having a blast getting this book finished for you. I hope in time for Gen Con.

 

Logo T-shirts and Mugs. Due to popular demand, we are bringing back versions of three popular logo designs – the full Kevin Long Rifts logo, Palladium Fantasy Dragon, and Heroes Unlimited logo – as both T-shirts and coffee mugs. All have been sent to the printer.  

 

Reprints galore. Something in the neighborhood of 30 titles are either at or heading to the printer. A handful, like Civilization Gone (Dead Reign® sourcebook) and the Rifts® Index Volume One, have been out of print for a few months. Other titles have either recently gone out of print or are nearly sold out, like the expanded Yin-Sloth Jungles, and we don’t want that to happen. There is a lot going on behind the scenes here in Palladiumville. All of it good.

 

That’s all for now. Thank you for your friendship and positive support. We hope to see a bunch of you at Gen Con. Until then, enjoy our two new sales and game on!
