Weekly Updates 2

Palladium Weekly Update - July 11, 2024

ONE GAME SYSTEM – EVERY GENRE – COUNTLESS WORLDS – ENDLESS ADVENTURE

Gen Con * Progress * Cost of Books * Back In Stock * Coming Soon

Happy Thursday, Palladium Fans!


Greetings Gamers Everywhere —

Gen Con is Coming!

 

At Palladium we are pounding away on several projects as we also prepare for Gen Con, just 3 weeks away! (Make that more like 2 weeks as we head out a few days before to take care of early set-up.) We’ve been figuring out the layout of the booth with our life-size Leonardo (still under construction) as well as convention promotions, convention specials (After the Bomb seems like a no brainer) and other good stuff.


Advancing Projects

Meanwhile, Sean and I are focused on our two respective projects. The TMNT Redux books are Sean’s main project – the clarifications and layout are outstanding.

 

For me it is Yin-Sloth Expeditions. I forgot what a great book Yin-Sloth Jungles was. This expanded setting and adventure companion is truly epic. There are 30 maps and many unique locations that work as oases of civilization (or brewing trouble and danger). Most have one or more fully fleshed out adventures or several adventure hooks. Oh my gosh, are you going to love this book. I have finished my tweaks and additions to the multi-part adventure that is the City-State of Terellia (a wild ride), Kor, Dunkirk, and Shaldon’s Keep, with much more to come (like Sea Giants and an arcane demon). This book is packed with ideas and old and new NPCs, villains, and adventure ideas. If we are to have any chance of having the book at Gen Con, I need to finish it over the weekend. Our printer is on standby. We’ll have to wait and see, but I have cleared my schedule and pushing hard to get Expeditions done!

 

 

Holding the down the cost of books.

 

We are doing our best to continue to hold the line on the cost of books. Most Palladium titles are 20-30% less than the majority of our competitors. Not sure how long we can maintain that as the cost of printing, manufacturing, and shipping all continue to rise. Get ‘em while you can. [Kev isn’t kidding, act now! - Sean]

Back in Stock Now!

After the Bomb Hardcover with bonus material – Cat. No. 503HC

Rifts® Book of Magic Hardcover (700+ spells and more) – Cat. No. 848

Rifts® Japan (dragon cyborgs and more!) – Cat. No. 818

🧟 Civilization Gone, Dead Reign Sourcebook– Cat. No. 231

Yin-Sloth Jungles Expanded (a great book!) – Cat. No. 459


Back in stock in a week or two (before Gen Con):

 

Rifts® Index Vol. One – Cat. No. 823

Exotic Weapons – Cat. No. 409

European Castles – Cat. No. 410


I have now sent 30 titles to the printer for reprint. Many are not yet out of print, like
Splynn Dimensional Market, Rifts® China 1 & 2, Mutants in Orbit, Dead Reign RPG, Hell Followed (DR), and In the Face of Death (DR), among others, but we have fewer than 10-20 copies in stock, thanks to recent distributor orders. I’m always surprised by the popularity of Dead Reign the Zombie Apocalypse. I don’t know why I’m surprised, it is a great game and dynamic setting with many unique zombies and game elements. Can you survive the Zombie Apocalypse?

 

Old is new again

 

Due to popular demand and frequent requests from fans, Palladium is considering reprinting select, out of print issues of The Rifter. These Rifter re-releases will have the words Archival Edition in a yellow box to differentiate them from the original printings, which are collector items. Most will have the price of $20.99 retail, more than the original cover price, but much less than the $40-$80 these titles are selling for on the collector’s market. We’ll try three much desired issues to test the market. They are The Rifter #48, #58, and #65. If these sell well, we’ll begin to reprint more Archival Edition Rifters. These are exactly the same book just with Archival Edition on the cover. Special thanks to Palladium fan, Joseph Sousa, for his helpful input and suggestion.

 

COMING! Art Prints Back in Stock and New – Next Week

 

13 full color art prints are also being printed for your enjoyment. All should be in stock by the middle of next week. More details in the next Weekly Update.

 

New at the 8 ½ x 11 inch size for the first time (fits 8x10 mat or frame):

🖼️ Rifts Japan cover

🖼️ Rifts Psyscape cover

🖼️ Rifts Coalition War Campaign – That’s in addition to numerous other fan favorites like Rifts Mercenaries: Crimes Against the Coalition, the Red Borg, and Ley Line Walker and ...

🖼️ CS Strike Force (CS troops on patrol; Kevin Long art; 17 x 11 inch size)

🖼️ Ley Line Scene (Kevin Long art; 17 x 11 inch size).

 

What’s hot at Palladium this week.

 

Rifts® titles as usual, and the Rifts® 30th Anniversary Edition hardcover remains hot, but this week we saw a lot of Dead Reign and Nightbane sales along with Rifts and Palladium Fantasy. We’re not sure why there was a sudden surge in horror titles, but we are happy to see it. Thank you for your support!

Find us at Gen Con

CLOSING THOUGHTS

I Love RPGs and World Building

 

It’s no secret that I love role-playing games and storytelling. It brings me joy to bring you worlds of adventure. Everything gives me ideas. Everything. Sean’s like that too. So was Erick Wujcik. But I’m starting to think I’m a natural born storyteller. That writing and world building is part of my DNA. Here’s why.


I have been seeing a grief counselor to help me through the loss of my best friend and life partner, Kathy Simmons. From all accounts, I’m handling it pretty well, but there are good days and bad days. You never know what will cause crushing grief to swell up inside of you. Sometimes it’s a poignant reminder and sometimes it’s something insignificant or silly. You can never tell what will hit you in your heart.


Well, I found something that was one of the very last things Kathy had done for me on March 22. She died the morning of March 24th. The grief counselor said considering what it was, he wasn’t surprised that it hit me with heavy grief for the next 3-4 days. What did surprise him was when I said, “Yeah, it was heavy and difficult, but I still managed to go to work and was writing really well.”


“You were still able to write?! And write well?” Apparently he thought this was rare and amazing, and he asked me how I did it.


That was a tough question. I had to think about it for a minute.


The words that came out of my mouth were, “I think I’m a natural born storyteller.” I’ve always loved stories in every form – children’s picture books, comic books, novels, history books, movies, television, animation, anime, live theater, spoken word, role-playing games, works of art, songs, comedy and everything – my entire life. I love stories and the art of storytelling. I love the structure and methods of writing and storytelling, and by extension, world building and game design. I thrive on the act of creation whether it’s in words or pictures, or both.


Being creative is my escape. My happy place. My world within worlds. I lose myself in the worlds, heroes, and villains I’m creating or taking on new adventures. The very act of it all brings me joy. The frosting on the cake, for me anyway, is knowing that my creations will bring joy to generations of gamers who read and play my works. As I’m writing I actually think things like, “The players will love this,” or “The Game Master will have fun with that.”


So thank you for helping me through my grief, because you are my inspiration, my muses, and part of my joy. You are part of my creative process as I create new worlds of wonder and build upon existing ones.


I also know Kathy would want me to continue to bring you these worlds. She loved me and the fans so much, and she worked so hard to keep Palladium strong through the good and the bad times. So I’m doing this for her, you, me, for all of us. I hope you continue to enjoy all the things we have planned for the next several years. We put our hearts and souls into everything we do. And I need to get back to one of them right now!


Enjoy the books and art prints back in print and please stop by Booth #607 – we hope to see a lot of you at Gen Con in a few weeks. Dare to dream and keep those beautiful imaginations burning bright.

ONE GAME SYSTEM – EVERY GENRE – COUNTLESS WORLDS – ENDLESS ADVENTURE

Celebrate! *  4th of July Sales * Gen Con is a month away

Happy 4th of July, Palladium Fans!

Happy Independence Day!

 

Hello Fellow Gamers,

We are thrilled to see so many of you enjoying
Palladium’s 4th of July Sale of 40+ items including select books, poker decks, most miniatures, and other good stuff at exceptional savings. Good news, the sale continues thru the holiday weekend and ends the morning of Wednesday, July 10, 2024, so there is still time for great savings to be had during and after your long weekend.


More good news! We have a
DriveThruRPG.com 4th of July sale for PDF items happening at the same time. See complete details for both sales below.

 

What’s Hot at Palladium this Week?

 

It has been a mixed bag. The sale items, of course, so a lot of resin and metal miniatures, Heroes Unlimited, and After the Bomb titles, but also Rifts, Palladium Fantasy, and a smattering of Dead Reign books.

 

Gamers continue to discover the Rifts® 30th Anniversary Special Edition Hardcover with an additional 24 page bonus color section in the back of the book with behind the scenes history, concept art, and gallery of every Rifts cover, because we seem to ship out 1-3 copies of it almost every day. Happy to see that, because it is a great book. Thank you, spread the word, and keep the orders coming.

 

TMNT & Other Strangeness BackerKit pledge manager is Closed.

Enjoy the Holiday!

 

Those of you able to take a long weekend, have fun and relax, but please be safe. We are battling deadlines, so most of us are working through the weekend here in Palladiumville. Think of us as you lie on the beach and enjoy your barbecue. Since it is a holiday in the United States I will keep this Update short.

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!

 

 

– Kevin Siembieda, Game designer, writer, friend
