2016 Christmas Surprise Package
– Available now till December 24, 2016
Every Christmas season for the last 18 or 19 years now, Palladium offers a Christmas Surprise Package – our way of saying thank you to our fans and helping to make your Christmas a little more fun and special.
We have left fans thrilled with what they received every year, and we plan to make this year’s Surprise Packages as exciting and fun as ever.
What is a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package?
An expression of appreciation and joy from us to you. And a bargain for you.
$89-$95 (or more!) worth of Palladium Books products for only $45 plus shipping and handling. You are guaranteed to get an absolute minimum of eighty-nine dollars ($89) retail value in your Surprise Package. Often you get $95-$100. Sometimes more! Santa Kevin likes to make gamers squeal with delight and often packs in $90-$100 worth of goodies into many Surprise Packages.
It’s a surprise package because you never know exactly what you’re going to get or who will sign your books. We try to include many of the items on your “wish list,” but we will surprise you with stuff you are not expecting. Things like a special print(s), posters or issues of The Rifter®, or a Palladium RPG or sourcebook(s), special edition comic book, or other items that we think you might enjoy. Plus you can ask for unusual items like a signed photograph of Kevin Siembieda, or Kevin and the staff (same as last year), or out of print books (as suggested here), or special gold editions (as suggested here), art prints, and maybe even some original art. All items are “hand-picked” by Kevin Siembieda from YOUR “wish list.” ALL with autographs if you request them. For many of you, this is the only way to get autographs from Palladium’s staff, artists and writers!
It’s our way of saying thank you to our loyal fans, delivering a little Christmas cheer, and putting a smile on the faces of some big kids. For you, it is a great way to get presents for your gaming pals, fill holes in your collection or try new games and settings.
When can you order? Right now!
Now till December 24, 2016. And ordering now will give you ample time to avoid the holiday rush or to order more than one Surprise Package. We always try to make each one truly special. Those of you who have ordered in the past know what to expect. If you’ve never ordered a Surprise Package before, give it a try early, because you’ll be blown away and probably want to order a few more!
Note: Orders received by Palladium after December 16th can NOT be guaranteed to arrive before Christmas. Likewise, Palladium makes no promise that orders sent to countries outside the USA or to military bases will be received before December 25th regardless of when they are placed.
Spread the word to gamers everywhere
The Christmas Surprise Package is only publicized by word of mouth, to readers of The Rifter® and on Palladium's website – www.palladiumbooks.com – so tell everyone you know. Buy one for every gamer you know and have a joyful holiday season.
$45.00 plus shipping and handling (usually another $10-$15), approximately $55-$60 total for most purchasers in the USA, about $15-$20 more to Canada. Shipping overseas is two or three times the cost to Canada. Our apologies to our friends outside the USA. We are only passing along the postal rates of your chosen shipping method. But it’s still a great deal. Plus, we always try to make the orders going to countries outside of North America extra special to make up for the shipping. For most of you, this is the only way you’ll ever be able to get autographed books, limited edition prints, artwork or unique items.
Credit card orders are welcomed. Visa and MasterCard are preferred, but we accept most cards. Place orders online, by mail, or by telephone at 734-721-2903; this is an order line only.
Send Mail Orders to: Palladium Books – Dept. X – 39074 Webb Court – Westland, MI 48185-7606.
Multiple orders WILL result in some duplication.
What you get
* $89-$95 OR MORE worth of Palladium goodies. An absolute minimum of eighty-nine dollars ($89) retail in Palladium product, almost always more ($90-$96)! Especially if you give us a long Wish List. Sometimes much more! Santa Kevin likes to make gamers smile and blow people’s minds. We want to lift your spirits and make the holiday season extra special.
* Autographs from Kevin Siembieda, available staff and freelance artists and writers. If you “request” autographs we’ll sign every book in your box! For many, especially those across the country and overseas, this is the only way they are likely to get autographs from Kevin Siembieda and crew. Take advantage of it. Many people find autographs make the item that much more special and valuable, and we are happy to oblige.
* Each order is “hand-picked” by Kevin Siembieda from a “Wish List” YOU provide! Please list at least 10-15 items (or more) that you know are in stock. PLEASE do not list books you know are out of print because you will NOT get them. Wish lists that are only a few items, six or less, cannot be fulfilled.
* Sketches by Palladium artists. Kevin Siembieda has created a handful of sketches of his trademark dragon (each different). And some Palladium artists like Chuck Walton and Mark Dudley may do sketches.
* Original Art by Palladium artists. Every year, some of Palladium’s artists donate original art from printed books or concept drawings for us to drop into some of the Surprise Packages. You MUST ASK FOR ONE to even be considered. We have some art from Mike Wilson, and we may get some additional art from other artists.
* Special items may include out of print books (only use titles suggested here), gold editions, miniatures, art prints, posters, special edition comic books, greeting cards, bookmarks, art books, T-shirts, coffee mugs, and other items.
* The Grab Bag makes a wonderful gift for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, house warmings, and any special occasion for the gamers in your life. Since there will be so much in every Surprise Package, ordering just one might enable you to give books to two or more pals. Of course, you never know what we might select from your list, so that might be a little risky, but if you state your intentions in the comments, we’ll do what we can. And please, feel free to say hello and share your thoughts with us in the comments section. But please, keep them brief (not more than half a page).
* Impress your friends with a gift worth $89-$95 or more for a cost of only $45 (plus shipping and handling).
* Fill holes in your own collection or get books and product you’ve been meaning to get or have been eyeballing longingly.
* Fun and surprise. As a “grab bag/surprise package” you never know exactly what you will receive, but that’s the fun “surprise” part of this offer, and we always try to send as many of your “special wants” as we can (at least two, almost always more). Extra items may include other RPG books, The Rifter®, posters, prints, art books, T-shirts, greeting cards, back stock items, uncut covers, original finished art or sketches, and other items or a surprise or two.
* Multiple orders WILL result in some duplication. If you get duplicate items, maybe give them away to your friends, a library or game store. Multiple orders will result in some duplication.
* This is a “Grab Bag” so do NOT expect to get every item you want. That’s not how this works. The bigger your wish list, the more likely you are to get more items from the list.
If you ask for signatures, every book will be signed by Kevin Siembieda and available staff members and freelancers. Note: If you do NOT want autographs, please indicate – “No autographs.”
Your “Wish List”
The Palladium Surprise Packages are designed to simulate the fun, joy and surprise of the Christmas Season of Giving. You submit a list of 10-15 Palladium products (or more) FOR EACH Surprise Package you order. This list of 10-15 items for EACH Grab Bag is critical, because you will not know which items you’ll be getting. That makes it just like a Christmas gift because it’s a surprise! Plus, Santa Kevin, who personally hand-picks every item for every Grab Bag, may toss in something extra like a limited edition print or T-shirt, or issue of The Rifter®, or something else he thinks you’ll enjoy. Please tell us only what you WANT. Do not list books you already have.
Important! To insure your Christmas Surprise Package is everything you want it to be, send us a wish list of your “wants” for each one you order. The more items listed, the more likely you are to get items you want. List them in order of preference – at least 10 items per EACH Grab Bag, but 15 or more for EACH is even better. That way, you don’t know what you’re getting, so when the package arrives, it really is like a Christmas present, because you do not know what it contains! Making it fun for you and easier on us. A large selection to choose from for us always makes these Grab Bags faster and easier to pull. Note: We need a list of 10-15 items per EACH Surprise Package you order. If you order two or three Surprise Packages, we need 2-3 list of different items for EACH Grab Bag. Thank you. And remember, the Surprise Package is a “Grab Bag” – which means you may get items you did not request as well as duplicate items.
PLEASE do not ask for books you know are not yet available or out of print like Palladium Fantasy® Crimson Hardcover, Tome Grotesque™, Land of the Damned™ Three, Rifts® Sovietski or Mechanoid Space®.
Note: Santa Kev and his elves are NOT mind readers. If you do not give us a clear idea of your wants, you may be disappointed by what comes in your Surprise Package.
You do NOT make our job easier when you say something like “I own everything, surprise me,” or “I don’t care, anything special.” It makes our job much, much more difficult. We want to make each Grab Bag special, but because we don’t know you or what books you own, like or want, we do not have a clue as to what to send you unless you give us a variety of items on your list.
Please say something like this: “I own it all, but would love any duplicate Fantasy books signed by the Palladium crew.” Or “I have most of it, surprise me with T-shirts or unique items like signed prints, T-shirts or a coffee mug, if available,” and so on. BETTER YET, list 10-15 specific items on your wish list for each Grab Bag you order.

REMEMBER, this is a “Surprise Package. While Kevin Siembieda and the Palladium staff personally TRY to make each and every Surprise Package something special, we cannot guarantee satisfaction. It is a “Grab Bag.” Buyers may not always be satisfied with what they get (although we seem to succeed with most) and purchasing multiple Surprise Packages will result in multiple duplicate items.
Note: Some book titles may be slightly damaged (bent corner, scuffed, nicked, etc.) so we can send you MORE product. Of course, we cannot control damage that may occur in the mail/shipping (Media Mail being the worst in that regard), but we do ship everything in a cardboard box or tube. Let us know if you don’t mind damaged books and we may be able to add even more items.
Method of Shipping. Ordering online allows you to select the desired method of shipping. We recommend UPS because it is fast, reliable and has tracking capabilities. It also has the lowest loss and damage statistics.
Media Mail is the least expensive, but it is also the least dependable. After November 15, during the holidays, Media Mail can take anywhere from 5-21 days for delivery, sometimes even 1-2 weeks longer. If you want your 2016 Surprise Package quickly, DO NOT ship via Media Mail; use UPS or Priority Mail. Note: Rare books and one-of-a-kind items like original art, prints and gold editions, CANNOT be replaced if lost or damaged in the mail. The risk and the loss is YOURS and the items will NOT be replaced.
Make sure you give us your entire, correct street address and APARTMENT NUMBER! Packages lost because you gave us an incorrect or incomplete address will NOT be replaced, the loss is yours.
UPS cannot ship to a P.O. Box; please provide a street address.
WARNING 1: Palladium is NOT responsible for loss if you give us an incorrect or incomplete address, or if you move before the Christmas Surprise Package/Grab Bag arrives. DO NOT FORGET to include your Apt. Number. Note: Rare books and one-of-a-kind items like original art, prints and gold editions, can NOT be replaced if lost or damaged in the mail. The risk and the loss is YOURS and the items will NOT be replaced.
WARNING 2: Palladium is NOT responsible for loss if you select MEDIA MAIL as your shipping method. Media Mail is the least reliable method of shipping and Palladium will not be responsible for packages shipped via Media Mail that go missing or arrive DAMAGED. We recommend UPS (especially in the USA) or a method of shipping via the United States Postal Service other than Media Mail. The risk and the loss is 100% YOURS when you ship via Media Mail, and the items will NOT be replaced.
Place your orders now – we are ready to start shipping.
