A whole lot has been brewing behind the scenes and I can finally reveal some of it. There are a great number of things happening or in development. Here are some of the highlights:

  • A new sale. Enjoy it while you can.
  • New book releases for Rifts®, Nightbane®, Palladium Fantasy®, The Rifter® and others are coming, starting in July. See book descriptions elsewhere in this Update.
  • Robotech® Ebooks. Spread the word about Robotech® ebooks now available on Amazon, iBoooks, Kindle and a dozen other platforms (more details below), as well as hundreds of PDF titles available on DriveThruRPG.com.
  • Palladium business manager. We have brought in Scott Gibbons to manage the company. Scott will handle many of the day to day business matters and marketing. This should lead to more products and timely releases, and improved communications. More details elsewhere in this Weekly Update.
  • Stronger social media presence. Scott has a large range of plans for this.
  • A return to Murmurs from the Megaverse®. Returning with at least a weekly post from me and one from Scott.
  • New Palladium website with better accessibility for mobile devices is coming in the months ahead, along with other improvements and products.
  • Palladium podcast. We hope to launch this very soon.
  • Mark Freedman at Surge Licensing, most famous for making the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles® into a mass market sensation, represents and manages all Palladium intellectual properties (I.P.s). Mark’s job is to expand Palladium’s expansive IP library into new mediums and markets.
  • Video game. Palladium is in discussion with a video game company interested in the Rifts® I.P. We also spoke with a virtual reality game company this week.
  • Television. A television production company is developing a Palladium I.P. as a television series. A writer has been hired and is working on the pilot and series outline. Our apologies, we cannot identify the company or the I.P. at this time, but it is not Rifts®.
  • Film. Palladium continues to field interest from Hollywood with three Palladium I.P.s currently under consideration. Disney retains the film rights to Rifts®.
  • Robotech® RPG Tactics™ Wave Two and the relaunch of Robotech® RPG Tactics™ is very much in progress with plans for numerous areas of promotion and fun, RRT product releases, demo kits, organized play, tournaments, and more, as well as big plans for the Robotech® RPG books.
  • Rifts® miniatures board game by Rogue Heroes Publishing. Another licensed product with a third party company. The publisher has delayed this product to reorganize, get everything finished and to make sure it is everything he wants it to be. Carmen wants to blow people away and Palladium remains incredibly excited about it.

NEWS – Scott Gibbons joins the Palladium team as business manager

Scott Gibbons is uniquely qualified and positioned to manage and help build the company. He has experience in running a toy company, management and finance, and is a life-long gamer intimately familiar with Palladium’s many games.

  • 5 years running a small toy company.
  • 10 years in finance.
  • Extensive training in management.
  • Extensive knowledge of games.
  • 25 years of playing Palladium RPG products.

The plan is for Scott to take over and handle many of the day to day business matters and marketing, freeing me to focus on what I do best and love most, the creative and licensing. We welcome Scott to the Palladium family and expect you will quickly see a number of positive changes in the weeks and months ahead. Starting with better communication and more frequent and timely product releases starting in July.

So you want to be a Megaversal Ambassador

1) What is an MA?

Answer: The MAs (Megaversal Ambassadors) are a growing group of Palladium Game Masters who volunteer to run Palladium role-playing gaming events and/or demos at conventions, stores and other gatherings to introduce NEW PLAYERS to the Palladium Megaverse®. They are also active talking about Palladium products and the enjoyment and merits of role-playing, online and at events, to get new players interested in Palladium’s games and to keep the enthusiasm alive among established gamers.
