NEWS! Rifts® Savage Worlds RPG voted Most Anticipated RPG of 2016

EN World recently announced online poll results in which gamers voted Rifts® Savage Worlds RPG as the Number One Most Anticipated new role-playing game release of 2016. Awesome news. You can count the Palladium crew among those who can hardly wait. Of course, we’ve seen some of the text and artwork for this exciting 2016 release, so we are really psyched up about it.

UPDATE: The Rifter® #73 – ALL “official” source material

I’m not completely sure yet, but it is looking like ALL the adventure source material in The Rifter® #73 may be official. I still need to go over a couple of articles, but it’s looking like the ENTIRE ISSUE may be “official” source material! If so, it would be the first time ever! It seems only fitting since The Rifter® #73 launches Palladium Books’ 35 year anniversary that it does something groundbreaking by presenting epic adventure source material for Rifts®, Palladium Fantasy RPG®, Splicers® and Dead Reign® that are “official.” All articles have been selected. Artwork assigned. Final editing is in progress.

I know my (Kevin Siembieda’s) adventure source material, Children of the Forest, is suitable for both Palladium Fantasy RPG® and Rifts®, though it is written primarily with Fantasy in mind. Oh, and in addition to providing insight to Wolfen and Faerie Folk, it stats out the winged beast and rider depicted on the front cover. Julius Rosenstein’s adventure source material, The Nexus Born, is written specifically for Rifts®, but it is suitable for, and adaptable to, other settings as well. I had intended to write a gaming advice article this issue too, but Julius, Chuck and I got carried away with our material which just kept expanding. We figured you would prefer source material you can drop into your games, so we ran with it. I will try to write my gaming tips article for The Rifter #74.

The Rifter® Super-Subscription Drive – Low Price – Free Gift

It only happens once a year – for a limited time – The Rifter® Super-Subscription Drive. We want people to discover The Rifter® as a valuable resource, so during the Super-Subscription Drive we offer a selection of FREE gifts as an additional enticement to subscribe. Gamers already familiar with The Rifter® always jump at this offer. That’s because, even when late, The Rifter® has been so consistently good, it is hard to say no to the Super-Subscription Drive.

The free gift is always a nice incentive, unique and fun. I have dug through the Palladium archives to make a number of out of print titles and “special” items available. For us, gaming is all about friends and fun, so enjoy and have fun. Note: The early issues of The Rifter® are limited and available only while supplies last. Please keep the orders coming and enjoy.

Here are four reasons (and 7 gift choices) why this is the perfect time to try The Rifter® or renew your subscription:

  1. Save $16 off retail and each issue is delivered right to your door.
  2. FREE gift worth $17.90 to $35.85 when you order now! 7 gift choices.
  3. Order during the Super-Subscription Drive to lock in your low, low subscription price for the next year.
  4. The Rifter® has been outstanding and is the place to find regular source material for Beyond the Supernatural, Palladium Fantasy®, Splicers®, Dead Reign®, Heroes Unlimited™ and other settings. And future issues will have more player and G.M. tips, and more “official” source material.

If you haven’t taken a look at The Rifter® lately (if ever), I suggest you try an issue.

The Rifter® is an excellent gaming resource. A place to find ideas as well as characters, monsters, villains, powers, magic and adventures for your own game. Characters, powers and equipment you can drop into most game settings with little or no modification. Even articles designed for settings you don’t play are likely to offer ideas and material you can easily modify and incorporate into your campaign. In fact, drawing on concepts from outside the usual setting can spice up your game and keep players guessing. The Rifter® is a great tool for that. The beauty of Palladium’s Megaversal Game System is you can often take characters, gear and ideas from one world setting and drop them into ANY of the other settings with no or little work. Other times, the amount of modification is minimal to make it work in a different setting. That means a monster from Palladium Fantasy® can be a creature, mutant or alien in Heroes Unlimited™, After the Bomb®, Robotech®, Rifts®, Nightbane®, The Mechanoids®, Chaos Earth® or Splicers®, and vice versa. What needs to be adjusted? Perhaps just changing Hit Points/S.D.C. and damage to Mega-Damage, or M.D.C. and M.D. to Hit Points/S.D.C., or some other minor tweaks.

Characters from Heroes Unlimited™ and After the Bomb® can be from the future, or the past (depending on the setting), or they can be mutants, or aliens, or beings from another or parallel world. As I am so wont to say, you are limited only by your imagination. The same holds true for towns, cities and adventures – use that place and the adventure ideas tailored to a different setting. Sure you may have to swap out monsters and treasure, or adjust motives, but you might be surprised how easy, fun and different that adventure plays out in a different world environment.

The Rifter® is the ultimate source for alternative, new and different ideas, rules, adventures, characters, and story ideas. All of which can be tweaked to fit most settings, as can optional rules. The Rifter® is a factory for alternative ideas.

The Rifter® Super-Subscription Offer is your chance to try The Rifter® at a discount price and get a FREE gift. Offer ENDS February 29, 2016.

UPDATE: New Robotech® RPG sourcebooks

Palladium Books has renewed its Robotech® game licence and has ideas floating around for a number of new Robotech® sourcebooks. One is a space pirates sourcebook tied to the UEEF Marines, Invid and that setting and time period. Another could focus on the planet Tyrol and the Invid. But we’re wondering what subjects and eras of Robotech® YOU might want to see. Please let us know.

UPDATE: Robotech® RPG Tactics

We intend to move Robotech® RPG Tactics™ forward in 2016 in a big way. To get the Wave Two Kickstarter exclusives and expansion packs into manufacturing and ultimately into your hands. For strategic and business reasons we cannot share with you everything we have been exploring, considering and working on, but we will share everything with you as we move forward and get things finalized. With all the past delays and frustration, we don’t want to even speculate on release dates and other details until we have hard, complete information ourselves. But we will be sharing and offering more throughout the year in the weeks and months ahead.

It is all part of the relaunch of Robotech® RPG Tactics™. By “relaunch” we mean a new and renewed market push of core games, regular product releases and game support, like RRT rules clarifications and elaboration, rules additions, advanced rules, demos, gaming events and promotions, adventures, PDF and physical releases, and more.

Please know that we are truly committed to making sure we complete and fulfill our Kickstarter obligations and to make Robotech® RPG Tactics™ truly epic, with future expansions across all eras of Robotech®. We expect to post more information and details in a week or two.

CONVENTION UPDATE: AdeptiCon – March 31-April 3, 2016, in the Chicago, Illinois area.

Palladium will be attending AdeptiCon this Spring. We’re hoping to have co-game designer Carmen Bellaire with us to run RRT demos and chat with gamers. We will have more details to report, product to sell, and hope to have some new RRT samples on display.

If there are any G.M.s who are planning to attend AdeptiCon who would like to run demos or build and run a small tournament for Robotech® RPG Tactics™, please contact us immediately at ambassadors{at} or by telephone (734-721-2903). Thank you! We’ll keep you posted if we add any special events or convention exclusives. We hope to see many of you there.

CONVENTION UPDATE: Anime North – May 27-29, 2016 – Kevin Siembieda and Chuck Walton Guests

A few other Canadian Palladium creators may also be in attendance at the Palladium booth in the gaming hall. Anime North is one of the longest running anime conventions in North America, with 26,000+ in attendance. The range of special guests, voice talent and cosplay is amazing.

Game Masters wanted. We are looking for Game Masters to showcase all of Palladium RPGs: Rifts®, Robotech®, Heroes Unlimited™, Palladium Fantasy®, Nightbane®, Dead Reign®, Beyond the Supernatural™, Splicers®, After the Bomb®, Ninjas & Superspies and all the rest. Also looking for people to demo Robotech® RPG Tactics™ and we would love to see a Robotech® RPG Tactics™ tournament if any of you are willing to organize and run one.

Rewards! And just like the last two years, Palladium offers the Best Players, Game Masters and all gamers in each event “rewards” for their participation. Plus G.M.s who run several games in the Palladium block get a free Gen Con G.M. badge and we get to have all events in the same area, making it convenient for players and Game Masters. Palladium is always looking for NEW G.M.s to run events and join the Megaversal Ambassadors, so please consider helping out and having some fun at the same time by running Palladium events at Gen Con and other conventions around the world.

Game Masters, please start contacting Palladium Books and/or Gen Con Game events coordinators Jeff Ruiz (NMI) and Victor Peterson now till the end of January, 2016. To get into the Gen Con Games Pre-Registration and the onsite program book, Gen Con needs ALL game information by early February. That means Palladium needs them by January 31, 2016; sooner is even better. I know some of you have already turned in your events. Awesome. You make Jeff and Victor’s work easier the sooner you can submit your game descriptions and details.

Send in your Gen Con game descriptions pronto to the Palladium Megaversal Ambassadors pronto at ambassadors{at} — or by telephone (734-721-2903).

The Rifter #73

NEW! The Rifter® #73 – Ships Early February

The Rifter® #73 is in final production. Articles have been selected and most of it, if not all, is “official” source material!

In final production and should go to the printer in a week or so.

Every issue of The Rifter® is an idea factory for players and Game Masters to generate new ideas and find new avenues of adventure. It provides useful, ready to go source material you can just drop into your ongoing games. A doorway to new possibilities and numerous Palladium role-playing worlds. And the many new characters, O.C.C.s, powers, magic, weapons, villains, monsters, adventures and ideas for one setting can be easily adapted to any Palladium setting.

Rifts The Disavowed

Rifts® Secrets of the Coalition States: The Disavowed™ – March

“Desperate times require desperate measures. War has nothing to do with morality or justice. It’s all about winning or dying. We cannot bind our hands with high ideals, even our own, or worry about the laws of renegade nations or the rights of alien people. We must fight fire with fire. And you are the match.” – Colonel Lyboc addressing a Disavowed team

The Disavowed are so Top Secret that their existence is known only to a handful of the Coalition States’ most elite, top echelon, with Joseph Prosek II the mastermind behind the Disavowed operation, and Colonel Lyboc its shadowy face. Find out who these men and women are. How the Disavowed get away with using magic, traveling to other parts of Rifts Earth and even to other dimensions in pursuit of enemies and strategic information that cannot be had through conventional means. Learn about the secret parameters in which these hard-boiled warriors, secretly hand-picked by Joseph Prosek II, operate, why almost every mission is considered a suicide mission, and why they must forever be the Disavowed.

  • CS operatives so secret that even the top military and political leaders right up to Emperor Prosek know nothing about them. And if they did know, would they condone their activity or condemn it?
  • Are the Disavowed heroes or renegades? Assassins or soldiers? Madmen or super-patriots? Or a little of them all?
  • Unsung heroes who keep the CS safe, or thugs and pawns of a shadow agency within the Coalition government?
  • What role does the Vanguard play in this group?
  • How do they reward their D-Bee “teammates” when the mission is over?
  • What happens to the Disavowed when they have seen or learned too much? Adventure ideas galore and so much more.
