2014 Christmas Surprise Package
– Offer extended till January 11, 2015

Every year for the last 16 or 17 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 left fans thrilled with what they received last year, and we plan to make this year’s Surprise Packages as thrilling and fun as ever.

What is a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package?

An expression of appreciation and joy from us to you.

$84-$92 (or more!) worth of Palladium Books product for only $42 plus shipping and handling. An absolute minimum of eighty-four dollars ($84) retail. Often more ($90-$95). Sometimes much more! Santa Kevin wants 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), 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 want them. For many of you, this is the only way to get autographs!

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 January 11, 2015. HOWEVER, we are NOT likely to ship the first batch before October 20, 2014. But ordering now will give us ample time to put the first rush of orders together and make them truly special.

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. The first orders WILL NOT likely to be filled before October 20, 2014.

Spread the word

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.

The Cost

$42.00 plus shipping and handling (usually another $10-$15), approximately $52-$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 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. Plus, we always try to make the orders going to countries outside of North America extra special.

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

$84-$92 or MORE worth of Palladium goodies. An absolute minimum of eighty-four dollars ($84) retail in Palladium product, almost always more! Especially if you give us a long Wish List. Sometimes much more! Santa Kevin wants to make this year’s Christmas Surprise Packages as spectacular as the last couple of years in which we’ve blown people’s minds. With the lingering uncertain economy and gloominess of the times, we want to lift your spirits and help you have fun gaming.

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. Get ‘em while you can.

  • If you do NOT want autographs, please indicate – “No autographs.”
  • If you do NOT want T-shirts, please write – “No T-shirts.”

Each order is “hand-picked” by Kevin Siembieda from a “Wish List” YOU provide! Please list at least 8-12 items (or more) that you know are in stock. PLEASE do not list books you know are out of print; you will not get them.

Sketches by Palladium artists. Kevin Siembieda has created a handful of sketches of his trademark dragon (each different). Some other Palladium artists may do similar sketch art. Oh, and each proof copy of limited edition hardcover editions like Rifts® Northern Gun Two and Megaverse® in Flames has a KS dragon sketch on the first, blank page of the book. There are only a dozen or so of these “printer proofs”; rare and likely the only thing you’ll get if you request one.

Original Art by Palladium artists. Every year, some of Palladium’s artists donate original art from printed books or concept drawings from such books, for us to drop into some of the Surprise Packages. You MUST ASK FOR ONE to even be considered. So far, we have 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, and other special occasions 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 $84-$92 or more for a cost of only $42 (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 three, almost always more). Extra items may include other RPG books, The Rifter®, posters, prints, art books, a special comic book, 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 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.” If you do not want to be considered for a T-shirt, write – “No T-shirts.” If you get duplicate items, maybe give them away to your friends, a library or game store. Multiple orders will result in some duplication.

Your “Wish List”

Important! To insure your X-Mas Surprise Package is everything you want it to be, send us a wish list of your “wants” for each Grab Bag ordered. 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 Grab Bag, but 12 or more is better. That way, you don’t know what you’re getting and we have a large selection to choose from, making it fun for you and easier on us. Thanks.

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, or Mechanoid Space®. Robotech RPG Tactics products (other than The Sampler and RRPGT rule book) are NOT available for Surprise Packages. Sorry, we hope you understand.

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 10-12 books or specific items on your wish list for each Grab Bag.

Here are some ideas for your “wish list.” Make sure your “Special Wants/Wish List” is filled in on the X-Mas Surprise Package order form. Thank you.

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 can not guarantee satisfaction. It is a “Grab Bag.” Buyers may not always be satisfied (although we seem to succeed with most) and duplication will occur with multiple orders.

Note: Some book titles may be slightly damaged (bent corner, scuffed, nicked, etc.) so we can send you MORE. 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. During the holidays, Media Mail can take anywhere from 5-21 days for delivery, sometimes 1-2 weeks longer. If you want your 2014 Surprise Package quickly, DO NOT ship via Media Mail, use UPS or Priority Mail. Note: Rare books and one-of-a-kind items, like art, prints or 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.

Make sure you give us your entire, correct street address and APARTMENT NUMBER!

UPS cannot ship to a P.O. Box; provide a street address.

Warning: Palladium is NOT responsible for loss if you give us an incorrect or incomplete address, or if you move before the Grab Bag arrives.

Place your orders now – we start shipping October 20, 2014 (maybe sooner!)

Happy Holidays from all of us at Palladium Books®
