The second half of The Origins of Fire, in which the Black Cat Society investigates the strange goings on at an asylum.
Today, I help novice Palladium enthusiast Ben, and Adam make up some new characters for a setting of their own choice. I go over the Secret Operative rewrite a little, as we spitball concepts for character design, and interesting ways to view creation.
One thing Palladium always has is versatility, and find some interesting character concepts to work with. So far, I like where this is going!
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!
Please stop spamming 'the button of last resort', its in need of repair
We're back after our short break, and the game is Fantasy, as the world war of Palladium starts to show its true intentions. Our not-too-combat-focused crew, along with an envoy from a new Kingdom (and a character who has been around for 15 years OOCly), and two characters from the New Warriors (who have been around for about 12) discuss and set up a plan to remove Baron Archimedes Pennington from power.
Well, actually the New Warriors come up with the plan and then promptly toddle off for a bit, but /still/

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!
