I'm a bit worried. I've got my first article coming out in Rifter 79, about the Stage Magician. Did a lot of thinking on it, reimagining the power category, and I know that the boards can be a bit vicious at times. Nevertheless I hope its enough that at least one person gets excited to actually try out this reinvented hero archetype.

Just felt the need to gush or cringe.

I KNOW people will enjoy it! I haven't played the Stage Magician (yet), but I got a sneak peek at GenCon. She was quite entertaining and well thought out! Are you going to the Open House and if so, will you be running any games?

I usually pick up Rifters based on what is in each issue but I will pick up for your article. I am very curious to see the revamped archetype.

Figuratively? Come ON! We all know, you will gobble it up.

:-) Don't be worried! Having said that, I would guess all authors are nervous about how their work will be received. When you work on something for a long time and pour your heart and soul into it, you want to have produced something "good enough" for the gamers and you cannot be sure until you have feedback. Yet, you already have feedback: you are being published, my friend, and in The Rifter - that is a high for any Palladium fan. Enjoy the ride!!!

I am very much looking forward to read your work.

I was hoping to put the reservation in this very weekend for the hotel room and the admission fee. I'm not sure how to apply to run anything there, whether there's a schedule or a hodgepodge. But yes I was planning on running at least two Cascade games.

I'm quite pleased to see support for the Stage Mage, I've also got a Super Sleuth revamp article submitted.

I'd love to see the Super Sleuth article! Is that also in line with what we saw at GenCon?

I can vouch first hand that the Stage Mage revisions are a spectacle of marvel and wonder. The (revised) character archetype definitely has more than one trick up its sleeve.

it is! I changed the character's name from just 'Sleuth' to Snoop. She's statted out in the sleuth article, just like Kelly Sharpe, Queen of Diamonds is statted out in the Stage Mage.

Alias: The Snoop
Name: Carmina Bertrelli
Land of Origin: New York City
Alignment: Principled
Description: A Mediterranean woman with a regal beauty to her. An olive skin tone combined with shoulder length hair that frames her sharp features. As The Snoop, Carmina wears a brown, stylized waistcoat that flares at the hips, and with metal shoulder pads, belying its armored nature. The only other simple adornment is a black eyemask.
Disposition: Serious, thoughtful, and with unbreakable moral character. Carmina took the vows of the force seriously, and seeks to ingraine herself to them on a daily basis. Protect. Serve. Respect. Upon dismissal from the force, she admitted to herself that she could still do a lot of good by safeguarding the boys in blue.
History: Carmina's a first generation immigrant to the U.S., her parents Greek and Italian respectively. She followed in her father's footsteps in the police force until illicit funds, from a suspected mob holding, were transferred into her personal accounts. The matter was brought to light by an outside source, and politics demanded Bertrelli take the fall. Suspecting corrupting in the department, Carmina reluctantly took on a role of a vigilante to help root out police and political corruption, as The Snoop. Always in the back of her mind is the question of why it was she that was set up for the fall.

Another good one to be on the lookout for! I suspect she will have some contacts left over from her days as a detective. That was one aspect of the character that made the overall story and experience all the more flavorful and enjoyable at GenCon.

indeed, I've also added cover identities too, that a char can produce on a whim. Pretty much the Sleuth was reengineered so you could play most any sort of mystery protagonist, from detective to attorney to jackie chan supercop to befuddling old sleuths. What I am really pleased with is the Evidence system, which you track on your sheet as you go further into a story. The more evidence you have, sometimes reflects in your ability set.

That said that one hasn't been picked up yet, and I'm really hopin for it.

Now that has piqued my interest! The fact that the character class supports everyone from detectives to a nosy old "Mrs. Kravitz" type is awesome! (A reference from the old show Bewitched, for you Millennials). I love the diversity that a player can choose from. I'm working on an OCC for BTS-2 that will allow a player many, many options for character creation. Creating a character, at least for me, is always fun!

granted the power cat still has hacking skills and the like, and Jessica Fletcher may have to undergo some revamping to fit (though she did end up in 'the magical world of Virtual Reality' in the worst episode ever).

I also added in some basic interrogation rules, turns out a Palladium fan contacted me that had military experience, and that helped out. Interrogation damages Mental Endurance, and if you happen to play like an Ace Attorney aka Phoenix Wright, you can smack down all the evidence you've learned for a big boost to the damage one time.

Cannot wait for the Rifter 79 to appear on our doorsteps. Very eager to read all of it and looking forward to see the responses.

Does anyone have his already?

You will receive some author specimen copies. IIRC it was 3 or 4. They would usually be sent out with the mailing of the Rifter to the subscribers, I guess. On my first article I received the specimen copies together with my subscription copy. I do not have more experience than that, I am afraid. I would think that we will have our copies around the 24th (depending on snail mail speed and location, probably shorter for the US - my Rifters have to cross the Pond).

I am just as eager and so want to see Rifter 79. I am checking my mailbox every day, eager like a child waiting for Santa Claus. I even asked my wife to call me immediately should the Rifter arrive :shock: :lol:

GOOD man!

Bon appetit!

I hope you will enjoy Gaming through History / Flashing Blades of Horror (if Palladium published both parts), too.

IRONYYYYY!

My wife just called me at the office and my copy/copies seem to have arrived. CAN NOT WAIT TO GET HOME!

Looking forward to read your article, Matt.

I really hope you enjoy it, though after writing my second I already see flaws in the first.

I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to get my copies at all ;;

I just got done reading the reinvented Stage Magician. I had The Rifter open alongside my HU2 book to compare the two. Matt, I am blown away. You took that character to the next level and then some! It looks really, really fun to play and I cannot wait to see the Super Sleuth! Bravo! I encourage EVERYONE to pick up a copy of Rifter 79 so you can have this character in your HU2 toolbag.

I did not have the time to compare your Stage Magician with the HU book version yet (but I will :-) ), Matt, but your article is a joy to read and has lots of nifty ideas to flesh out a Stage Magician. I think your article adds to the panoply available to at any HU group!

I am pleased, relieved, and humbled that you enjoy my contribution. I actually obsessed over that for the better part of six months, trying to really make that power cat something interesting, inventive, and fun.

I haven't seen it yet myself, I'm hoping that everything was kept, which means that I have some characters in there from my setting of Cascade, a precursor to the actual article I'm still working on

I've submitted the sleuth but I don't have wordperfect so I'm hoping that isn't discouraging Wayne from selecting it.

Thank you both again for the approval. That means a lot to me.

lol, still haven't seen it myself. Was there artwork? I'm already looking at my copy I sent in and see things I'd do differently, like further describe the characters I put in there...

you humble me. I can only hope that they accept my Super Sleuth rewrite and so I can continue this trend of revamping the Special Training categories.

If I remember correctly... It's 60 or 90 Days from the publish date in the submission guidelines somewhere here on the site... The contract you get in the mail (if it hasn't changed) will be specified... I can't remember if it's either 90 or 120 days from the publish date. If you signed the NDA it's in there.

Whatever the amount of time, just contact them after that and they'll send your CCs along.

Congrats.

excellent, thank you, I had no idea how long it'd take. Now I can relax at least!
