One game system – every genre – countless worlds – endless adventure
Rifts® Bestiary™, Volume One is our next release, with the possible exception of a couple new Raw Preview Edition titles like Garden of the Gods™, etc. Otherwise, we are focusing all of our attention on getting Rifts® Bestiary™, Volume One to the printer and into your hands. It will be followed by the In the Face of Death™ sourcebook for Dead Reign®, Rifts® Bestiary Two, and several other titles for Rifts® and Palladium Fantasy®. A few of which should be a nice surprise. Beyond the Supernatural™ sourcebooks are also in the development pipeline but do not yet have a 2019 release date. Certainly later in the year. We intend to pound out new releases at a rapid pace, so keep your eyes peeled.
Our awesome Christmas Surprise Package offer is coming to an end. Only 2 weekends left to order, so your opportunity to get yours is almost gone!
Check out the new DriveThruRPG.com Sale of PDF horror titles including ALL Dead Reign®, Nightbane®, Splicers®, Mechanoids®, and Beyond the Supernatural™ RPG titles and a few other odds and ends all described below. A great resource for yourself or as a gift for an upcoming birthday, anniversary, graduation, Valentine’s Day, etc. More details below. One weekend only.
Only 10 days left to order a Palladium Surprise Package and get a box full of RPG books for the price of PDFs
Time is running out to snag a 2018 Surprise Package as a treat for yourself or a gift for a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day (it will be here before you know it), graduation, etc. A Surprise Package is a way to get printed books at PDF prices to try new games, new settings, fill holes in your collection, get caught up on The Rifter®, or replace battered old books. Whatever the reason, order soon, because this offer is almost over. Ends January 14, 2019. Use the current Catalog of Palladium Books PDF available online here on the Palladium Website and on DriveThruRPG.com to help make your selections.
What is a Palladium Surprise Package? A way to get $95-$100 or more worth of physical gaming product (not PDFs) for the price of PDFs! For ONLY $46 (plus shipping and handling), get gifts for others or for yourself. And each book is signed if you should want autographs. It is our way of saying thank you to our many fans for their support. You are appreciated more than you may realize.
Start the New Year with a box full of game books! You could pay $50 or more for just a single core rule book, but for $46 plus shipping, you can get 4-6 books in a Palladium Surprise Package, depending on their retail value. Or you can get that core rule book and 2-4 sourcebooks. And we will sign the books if you request it. How do you beat that? It simply is the best deal in gaming! Our way of giving back to the fans and making the holidays special for you. A 20 year tradition of which gamers cannot get enough.
- Palladium Surprise Packages make the perfect gifts for any occasion or a way to add to your collection on the cheap. An ideal gift for a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or any special occasion that falls between now and March. You get a ton of stuff, plus autographs, and you look like you spent a fortune.
- Fill holes in your own collection.
- Try new game settings – Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy®, Heroes Unlimited™, Splicers®, Nightbane®, Dead Reign®, Beyond the Supernatural™, Rifts® Chaos Earth®, After the Bomb® (mutant animals), Ninjas & Superspies™, RECON® and all the rest.
- Get cool stuff (miniatures, bookmarks, maps, prints, greeting cards, T-shirts, etc.).
- Request autographs and Kevin and available Palladium staff and freelancers will sign every book.
- Get something for your fellow gamers or favorite Game Master, husband, wife, brother, sister, child, etc.
- Be surprised when the package arrives.
Please spread the word to gamers everywhere. People only learn about the Palladium Surprise Package offer by word of mouth, The Rifter® and our website, so please post and spread the word everywhere that this offer ends January 14, 2019.
Why extend this amazing offer? This post-Christmas extension has become part of the Grab Bag tradition as much as the Surprise Packages themselves. It is the nice thing to do, because we realize many of you are so full of the Christmas Spirit that you spend your money on gifts for your loved ones rather than yourself. This generous act of charity often leaves no money for you to buy a Palladium Surprise Package for yourself until after the holidays. We think that sacrifice is pretty wonderful and what the holiday season is all about, so we extend the offer so that you selfless souls can pick up a Surprise Package after the holidays.
The extension is also for you Johnny Come-Latelies who are so caught up in the holiday frenzy, work and life that somehow you miss placing your order for the Christmas Surprise Package before the offer ends. It is also for those of you who wish you had ordered one (or another one) but forgot. Lastly, it is our way to carry that holiday good cheer into the New Year. So get your post-holiday Surprise Package and enjoy. This offer will not be extended further and ENDS January 14, 2019. This is your last chance, please spread the word. Happy New Year.

DriveThru New Year Sale – Horror – one weekend only – through Sunday January 6, 2019
Keep the New Year rocking with fright-filled fun. The following PDF titles are all on sale for a very limited time:
- Beyond the Supernatural™ RPG
- BTS Boxed Nightmares™ sourcebook
- All Nightbane®
- All Dead Reign®
- All Splicers®
- All Mechanoid® Titles
- The Rifter® #44 (filled with giant, kaiju-style monsters)
- Dead Reign® Paper Minis
ALMOST SOLD OUT – Systems Failure™ RPG, Nightbane®: Shadows of Light™ sourcebook and Boxed Nightmares™ sourcebook (for BTS™ 1st Edition)
We took a page from the Walt Disney playbook by re-releasing three RPG titles just for the Holidays. All three were made available as print books for the first time in decades. BUT ONLY FOR THE HOLIDAYS! That means when this current run sells out, they are gone, back out of print and available only as PDF downloads on DriveThruRPG.com.
Will we do this again next year with these titles? Maybe. What about other out of print books? Again, maybe. This was sort of a fun experiment. An experiment that was quite successful as there are fewer than 20 copies of each of these books currently available and going fast. Get them while you can.
- Systems Failure™ RPG – Yep, the complete, whacked out role-playing game. 144 pages – $22.99 retail – Cat. No. 650. Available now only while supplies last.
- Shadows of Light™ – A Nightbane® sourcebook – 160 pages – $22.99 retail – Cat. No. 734. Available now only while supplies last.
- Boxed Nightmares™ – A sourcebook for Beyond the Supernatural™ 1st Edition rules, but easily adapted to BTS, 2nd Edition. Mostly adventures and adventure ideas. 112 pages – $17.99 retail – Cat. No. 701. Available now only while supplies last.
All are available in Palladium’s online store and will be considered as requests in Christmas Surprise Packages during these last days of that offer. HOWEVER, with so few left, granting such Grab Bag requests will be very limited. Available only while supplies last – so order ‘em while you can.
UPDATE: The Rifter® #82
The Rifter® #82 has garnered accolades from many who have acquired a copy, both for the Erick Wujcik Remembrance as well as for the gaming material it contains. Personally, I think it is worth getting just for the Erick Wujcik Remembrance – or – just for the Chaos Earth® Pyromancer O.C.C. and Pyromancy spells. And that’s saying something, because the rest of the book is outstanding with official source material for the Rifts® Bestiary™ Volume One (a sneak preview), official source material for Rifts® Chaos Earth® with the Pyromancer O.C.C. and 50+ Pyromancer spells, and the Zone Twister, official source material for Nightbane® (age modifiers and tables), an expanded revisit of the Physical Training character for Heroes Unlimited™, and the Remembrance of Erick Wujcik, including some fun history about Palladium Books, some cool photos, plus news and more.
- 112 pages – $14.99 retail – Cat. No. 182. See the full, updated description elsewhere in this Update. Available now.
UPDATE: Rifts® Bestiary, Volume One
Now that the holidays are over and the Surprise Package offer is coming to an end, we can focus the majority of our attention to finishing the Rifts® Bestiary Volume One.
The two upcoming Rifts® Bestiary books will be great resources for players and G.M.s alike, with creatures that can be used as familiars, pets, riding animals, guard animals, and in some cases, even unlikely allies. Others are slobbering monsters or malicious predators who include humans and D-Bees among their prey. All giving you plenty of spice to add to your characters and adventures. And each has a map that shows at a glance exactly where to find these beasts.
- Monsters and animals of Rifts North America organized into two big, easy to use sourcebooks.
- Updated descriptions and information for existing monsters.
- Updated and uniform stat blocks.
- New predators, exotic riding animals, beasts of burden, alien horrors, giant insects and more.
- A map for every creature showing where it is found.
- Fully illustrated, much of the art by Charles Walton II, along with Siembieda and many others.
- 192-224 pages each volume – $28.99 retail – Cat. No. 896 (Volume One), Cat. No. 897 (Volume Two). In production. Winter.
