Last I heard any news about this, it was early November. Has anything happened on this front?

I received my contract for my part of the Rifter 0 project and the date on it is January 15 with a return deadline of February 10 (I signed it and put in the mail within 5 minuets). If this is any indication the Rifter 0 may be ready by Labor Day.

I guess this means that I'll have to get off my butt and actually get to making those final touches and what not huh?

I gotta say though, the whole thing looks beautiful.

My contract is signed and sent off. I wonder how long it will take them to release it once all the contracts are in. It's not like they have to send it off to the printers.

The main issue will be setting up the system for 'pay then download'. I have some ideas on that myself, but it shouldn't be much of a delay.

I still haven't received my contract, but that's not surprising. It's not palladium's issue, it's just my local mail blows massive chunks.

And I thought my mail was slow... Not that the USPS here is fast or anything.


Sometimes my mail carrier decides that he doesn't feel like delivering the mail that day. Newman from Seinfeild is model employee compared to the guy we got.

RPGnow / DriveThruRPG (aka OneBookShelf) would be an excellent service because it already has a strong gamer draw and offers a huge amount of tools for the publisher to track sales / clicks. Most of the major RPG publishers are there. YourGamesNow is a recent group of small RPG publishers, but I understand they have some excellent user tools.

BTW, if you do want a single personal print copy, there are several good services that will let you send them a PDF and they will send you a softcover. Lulu is probably has the best reputation in this regard.

Palladium has the software for Rifter0 to be sold, they just haven't tested it yet. I have got, signed and sent out my contract as of wednesday this week and I'm just waiting on Kevin to send me his 'from the desk' entry so I can finish the sucker off and send it to Palladium.

Kevin told me earlier this week (by email) that they're getting close to finishing the system for how they'll sell Rifter0, so I expect to see it soon, possibly before march.

Nope, but it's fairly nominal I'd expect. $5 is my prediction

I got my contract and an email that said that it was still needed to be turned in. However it was turned in a while back and I don't have the original since. I just hope that I am in the #0. :-)

You should have received two contracts, one to sighn and return, the other for your records. Make a copy of the one from your records and send it in again, maybe certified mail with a return receipt so that you can say "Alex you sighned for it yourself" (for example).

How about posting a link to Rifter 0 that leads to the online store? That way one does not have to navigate through it all.
