Hello there all, thank you for listening to our humble podcast. We should be back on schedule now for good bi-weekly RPG fun as normal!
Until then, Palladium's got a few sales going on, and I'll get to the reason I'm touting these in a moment...
Palladium Horror Sale
There's a big discount on all things horror for the Megaverse(tm), this ends tonight
And then there's this
Christmas Grab Bag! I've partaken of this myself, and have enjoyed it a lot. If I didn't already have most of the books, I might do it again.
And wait, whats this?
Well, what is it? :O
Its the next Rifter issue, with a special tribute to Erick Wujcik (someone I have long had a bit of interest in), but it also has......a Physical Training hero rewrite done by someone in this podcast. I'll let you guess whom that is!
Have a good day all, game on, and never let nothing stop your fun!
There is only one week left for the Palladium Horror Bundle of Holding. I would appreciate it if you could send that info out through your network/podcast. Offer ends Tuesday, October 29, 2018.

**** Surprise Package Hype - in case you wanted it *****
Get printed Rifts® books at the cost of a PDF via the Palladium Christmas Surprise Package – shipping now. Don’t wait!
What is a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package? It’s a fun bargain for you and Palladium’s way of saying thank you to its many fans around the world. Fill holes in your collection, try new games (because you are not limited to just Rifts® titles), get gifts for your gaming pals, and if you want, the Palladium crew will sign every book. And you don’t have to wait till Black Friday. Order now.
$90-$100+ worth of Palladium Books products for only $46 plus shipping and handling. You are guaranteed to get an absolute minimum of ninety dollars ($90) retail value in your Surprise Package. Most get $95 and many get $100 worth of goodies or more, because Publisher, Kevin Siembieda, is crazy during the Christmas Season. And for him, that season started with Halloween.
It’s a surprise package and a Grab Bag because you never know exactly what you’re going to get or who will sign your books. Palladium always tries to include many of the items on your “wish list,” but they will surprise you with stuff you are not expecting. Things like a special print(s), map, or a negative from an actual book, or issues of The Rifter®, or a Palladium RPG or sourcebook(s), special edition comic book, or other items that they think you might enjoy. Plus you can ask for unusual items. All items are “hand-picked” byKevin Siembieda, the Founder and Lead Game Designer at Palladium, from your “Wish Lists.” ALL with autographs if you request them. For many of you, this is the only way to get autographs from Kevin and available Palladium staff members, artists and writers!Please spread the word and tell everybody about this offer! Ends December 23, 2018, but order today, because after you get your first Surprise Package, you will want another.
To those of you outside the USA, the X-Mas Surprise package is a way to get books and circumvent the extremely high cost of shipping from the US. Since you are getting $90-$100 worth of product and only paying $46 plus a small handling charge, shipping viaPriority Mail International (required for packages weighing more than four pounds) to most locations in Europe, Canada and many other countries should be around $50-$60 US dollars. HOWEVER, because the cost of the product is so low, that’s the equivalent of paying retail for the products and $0-$30 for shipping. A very good deal. Plus you get autographs if you want them! Please take advantage of it to get all those products you’ve wished you could get except the shipping was too prohibitive. We feel your pain. Game on!

Our one hundredth upload!
And what a fitting game it is. The Fantasy crew meet some very strange and powerful individuals that seem a bit familiar in this game, as they learn more about what the fallen god Chantico is up to, and speculate as to what could happen next.
Also someone gets clowned in two hits.

As a Guide to the Megaverse(tm), I feel it is only fitting to let our listeners know that there is a deal going on right now for the Essential Rifts items, including the GM's Guide as well as the World books for North America. My group rather enjoys the New West setting(and we'll be going back there again someday). Beating the threshold means more books, including one of my favorite books, the Book of Magic!
Currently there's five more days on the big BoH sale, and I encourage you all to partake in the deal.
