Is there any word on when or if either Kevin S. or Scott Gibbons will post any more murmurs? the last post is dated New Years Eve 2017 and indicated there would be more, but so far there's been not a single murmur for 2018.

Pretty sure that Scott is no longer with the company, and hasn't been since April or May.

EDIT: Ok, well not necessarily completely gone, he has stepped away for the time being. I wish him, and his family, well.

NEWS: Scott Gibbons’ departure from Palladium Books
Scott Gibbons has had to step away from Palladium Books due largely to family concerns. As many of you know from interactions with him online or at the recent Palladium Open House, his oldest child was diagnosed with cancer five years ago. Last year, shortly before he started working with Palladium, Scott’s son began a new treatment that brought very promising results. Unfortunately, a few months ago the cancer reasserted itself, and Scott and his family are now having to devote more time and energy to his son’s care. While the long-term prognosis hasn’t changed, the stress and demands prevent Scott from being able to devote the attention and energy toward his work at Palladium as he would like to provide.

Scott remains a friend and confidant, so don’t be surprised to see his name cropping up in news, books and other projects. We wish Scott and his family our very best, and hope the doctors find a new, superior treatment regimen with lasting results for his son. Hang tough.

Sounds like code to me.

I can't imagine working for a small-time game publisher like Palladium can provide the kind of insurance or income you need to care for an extremely ill child. It's a shame he had to leave, but that's completely understandable given the circumstances. I hope everything is going well for his family.

It's too bad their Twitter feed has gone silent. The last tweet was from around the end of the Open House or thereabouts (April 2018). Not a good sign. I suspect Scott was maintaining that since his departure coincides with when it went silent.

Wasn't aware they had a Twitter feed.

Yeah, it's here: https://mobile.twitter.com/palladiumbooks?lang=en

There was a hot minute where they actually had someone maintaining it and interacting with the fans, albeit superficially. Still, it was fun while it lasted.

Ah, memories- February 26th was our last post.... Scott and/or Wayne did a few until the Open House, but that is now ended....

Ouch. My thoughts go out to Scott and his family.
