2022 Christmas Surprise Package – Available now till December 24, 2022

No other RPG company on the planet has an offer like this. Truly the best deal in gaming, it started 24 years ago and has become an annual tradition. The Palladium Christmas Surprise Package is our way of saying thank you for your support and helping to make your Christmas a little more fun and special.

We have thrilled fans with what they receive every single year, and this year will be no exception.

What is a Palladium Christmas Surprise Package?

* A fun bargain, autographs, and surprises for you.

* $95-$105 (sometimes more) worth of Palladium Books products for only $58 plus shipping, plus autographs if you request them. You are guaranteed to get an absolute minimum of ninety-five dollars ($95) retail value in your Surprise Package. Often you get $98-$105 and sometimes more! Surrogate Santa Kevin likes to make gamers squeal with delight and often packs in $100+ worth of goodies into many Surprise Packages.

* We always try to make each Grab Bag/Surprise Package 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! It happens all the time. We love putting smiles on your faces.

* Surprise Packages are fun and a great way to get holiday presents on the cheap for your gaming pals, or to fill holes in your collection, or try new games and settings, or to treat yourself.

* They’re also our gift to you. Our way of saying thank you and delivering a little holiday cheer to our loyal fans. An expression of appreciation and joy from us to you.

* 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 may surprise you with stuff you are not expecting. Things like an issue of The Rifter®, a Palladium RPG or sourcebook(s), miniatures, a one-of-a-kind negative, art prints, note pads, or other item(s) we think you might enjoy.

* Ask for RPGs, sourcebooks, hardcover editions, and other items like miniatures, T-shirts (include your size), greeting cards, bookmarks, an iconic Kevin Siembieda dragonhead sketch, and other products. With few exceptions, if it is available in our online store you can request it for our consideration. We make most selections from your Wish List of 12-15 items so it is vital. Please do not ask for items you know are out of stock, out of print, or not yet available. See important details and ordering tips below.

* All items are “hand-picked” by Kevin Siembieda from YOUR Wish List. ALL with autographs from Kevin and available staff members if you request them. For many of you, this is the only way to get autographs from Palladium’s staff and freelance artists and writers! (And yes, Julius comes in to sign books even though he’s retired).

* When can you order? Right now! We are ready to start shipping now thru December 24, 2022. Ordering sooner than later gives you ample time to avoid the holiday rush and delays in the mail. Better yet, you can order more than one Surprise Package before this offer ends.

Please spread the word to gamers everywhere – We are ready to start shipping

The Palladium Christmas Surprise Package is truly awesome and is only publicized by word of mouth, and on Palladium's website – www.palladiumbooks.com – so please tell everyone you know, talk about it on social media, and buy at least one for yourself and one for every gamer you know! Have a joyful holiday season.

How to Place your Order

* Cost: $58 US Dollars + shipping to get $95-$105+ worth of Palladium goodies. An absolute minimum of ninety-five dollars ($95) retail in Palladium product, almost always more, especially if you give us a long Wish List. Kevin likes to make gamers smile and blow people’s minds.

* Placing Orders Online is probably the fastest and easiest way to order. Ordering online allows you to select the desired method of shipping. We recommend UPS because it is fast, reliable, and has reliable tracking capabilities. Multiple orders will result in duplication.

You may also order by calling the office with credit card info handy – 734-721-2903 order line – 10:00 AM till 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Or you may also order by mail with a check or money order, to Palladium Books – Dept. X – 39074 Webb Court – Westland, MI 48185-7606.

* Please include ALL of the following information...

  • Your correct mailing address. Double check it before you submit. Make sure it includes your apartment number. Palladium is not responsible for loss if you give us incorrect shipping information.
  • Your correct credit card information. Please double-check all information. If you recently moved, make sure we have your correct and current address!
  • WISH LIST of 12-15 specific books and/or products like prints, bookmarks, miniatures, T-shirts, etc., that you know are in stock. List only product you want (not what you have or don’t want). Please do not ask for books not yet published or are out of print. See Details on making your Wish List, below.
  • If you do NOT want to be considered for a T-shirt, please write “No T-shirts.” If you DO WANT to be considered for a T-shirt, please make sure to give us your SIZE.
  • Indicate whether you want autographs. Yes or no.
  • Tell us your favorite Palladium games.
  • Tell us Palladium games you have NOT played but want to try.
  • Comments and suggestions. Please keep them brief.

* Credit Cards are welcomed: Visa and MasterCard preferred, but most major credit cards are accepted. We are very sorry, Palladium cannot take “Debit Cards” or “gift cards.”

* If you have a question about your order or want to place your order by telephone, call 734-721-2903; this is an order line only.

REMINDER, this is a “Surprise” Package. While Kevin Siembieda and the Palladium staff personally TRY to make each and every Surprise Package special, we cannot guarantee satisfaction. It is a “Grab Bag.” Buyers may not always be satisfied (although we seem to succeed with most). Purchasing multiple Surprise Packages will likely result in multiple duplicate items. If you cannot come up with a Wish Lists of 12+ available items, please do NOT order a Christmas Surprise Package.

Slight Damage: Some books used in the Surprise Packages may show slight damage such as a bent corner, scuffs, nicks, dings, dents, dirt smudge, crushed corner, 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 ship everything in a well packed cardboard box or tube. Please let us know if you don’t mind damaged books and we may be able to add even more items to your Grab Bag!

Select the Method of Shipping

Media Mail is least expensive (around $10 per Surprise Package), but it is a less reliable and slower, low priority, classification of the USA mail. In 2020 Media Mail packages took 6-12 weeks to be delivered. In 2021 Media Mail was back to the usual 8-18 days during the holiday season. We do not know what 2022 deliveries will be like, but we fear it may be something in between. When shipping via Media Mail we recommend placing holiday gift orders as early as possible to guarantee getting it in time for Christmas. WARNING: Use Media Mail at your own risk. If lost or damaged in transit, Palladium will NOT replace the contents if shipped by Media Mail.

UPS Ground is reliable, insured, and fast. Last year UPS was astonishing, but it is more expensive than Media Mail. UPS Ground packages arrive to ALL states, except Alaska and Hawaii, in 3-5 business days; 2-3 days to locations east of the Mississippi River. UPS cannot ship to a P.O. Box, so 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. The loss is yours. DO NOT FORGET to include your APARTMENT NUMBER! Note: Rare books and one-of-a-kind items like prints and gold editions CANNOT be replaced if lost or damaged in the mail.

WARNING 2: Palladium is NOT responsible for loss or damage when you select Media Mail as your shipping method. We recommend UPS (especially in the USA) or another method of shipping via the United States Postal Service (USPS) like Priority Mail rather than Media Mail, especially if fast delivery time is important. The risk and the loss is 100% YOURS when you ship via Media Mail, and lost packages or damaged items sent via Media Mail WILL NOT be replaced.

Live outside the USA? This is a great way to get books at a good price. The X-Mas Surprise Package is a way to circumvent the high shipping costs from the USA, since you are getting $100+ worth of product and only paying $58 for the books. Shipping via Priority Mail International (required for packages weighing more than four pounds) to most locations in Canada, Europe, and many other countries should be around $70-$80 US dollars. HOWEVER, because the cost of the product is so low, that’s the equivalent of paying full retail for the products and only $1-$30 for shipping. A very good deal. Plus you get autographs if you want them!

X-Mas Surprise Packages are the way to go for those of you outside the USA. Please use it to get all the products you’ve been wanting except the shipping has been prohibitive. Please Note: We feel your pain regarding the high cost of shipping. We are not Amazon. We do not get the massive discounts as that multi-billion dollar company. We only pass along the cost of your chosen shipping method. Plus, we always try to make the orders going to countries outside of North America extra special to make up for the shipping cost. 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, so we’re happy to have this opportunity to show how much we appreciate you.

How to Make Your “Wish List”

The Palladium Surprise Packages are designed to simulate the fun, joy and surprise of the Christmas Season of Giving.

* Send a “Wish List” of 12-15 Palladium products (or more) you would like for the holidays, from which Kevin will select $95-$105+ worth of product. Depending on the cost or value of the books selected from your list, that’s typically 4-6 books for only $58 plus shipping.

* List product you know are in stock and available in the online store. Don’t ask for product that is out of print or not yet published, like Rifts® Titan Robotics or Beyond Arcanum. PLEASE give us a long Wish List and fill out the questions. It all helps us make your Surprise Package something you will enjoy.

* We suggest you list product in the order of preference starting with your most wanted. You might even want to number them 1-15.

* List only what you WANT. Do not list books you already have.

* If you do NOT want to be considered for a T-shirt, please write “No T-shirts.” If you DO WANT to be considered for a T-shirt, please make sure to give us your SIZE.

* You can ask for new and recent releases like BTS Creature Feature (not available till November), The Rifter® #85, Rifts® CS Manhunters™, the Lopan™ and South Winds™ Raw Previews, Rifts® 30th Commemorative Hardcover ($60 value), the new T-shirt, miniatures, and so on. Note: Asking for new books not yet available will delay shipping and you may not get your Surprise Package till after Christmas.

* Hardcover Editions will be limited and for the Surprise Package will have a value of $50 rather than the normal retail price of $39.99 or $36.99. Gold and foil editions will carry a $60 value. Only people who request a specific hardcover will be considered to receive one.

* When ordering MULTIPLE Surprise Packages send us a different Wish List for EACH Surprise Package you order. Note: Ordering multiple Surprise Packages are likely to result in some duplication. If you get duplicate items, maybe give them away to your friends, a library or game store, or sell them online. Multiple orders WILL result in some duplication.

* Kev and his elves are NOT mind readers. Please give us a clear idea of your wants or you may be disappointed by what comes in your Surprise Package or you may receive items you already own. 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 art prints, or a coffee mug, if available,” and so on. BETTER YET, list 12-15 specific items on your wish list for each Grab Bag you order.

* 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 of you across the country and overseas, this is the only way you are likely to get autographs from 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. There is no charge for this service.

If you do NOT want autographs, please indicate – “No autographs.”

* Dragonhead Sketch by Kevin Siembieda. Kevin is always happy to draw one of his trademark “dragonhead” sketches (each one slightly different) on a separate, 8½ x 11 inch sheet of paper upon request. $20 value. He also randomly includes such a sketch as a surprise in some books at no extra charge. Ho, ho, ho.

* Palladium Books reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute or add products not on your Wish List, such as an issue of The Rifter®, art books, novels, art prints, bookmarks, one-of-a-kind negatives from books (they look like woodcuts), out of print books, gold editions, miniatures, mouse pads, color maps, posters, greeting cards, T-shirts, coffee mugs, baseball caps, pens, pencils, Rifts® note pad, and other items.

* No original art or sketches by other Palladium artists this year. Sorry, there is no artwork available this year, but you can ask for any of our “prints.” Original art is donated by the artists and with more and more of them moving to the digital medium, we have no art to surprise you with this year. We hope you understand.

* We love to hear your comments. 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).

* DISCLAIMER: This is a “Grab Bag” so do NOT expect to get every item you want. That’s not how the Surprise Package works. If you want specific products guaranteed, do not use the Surprise Package, place a regular order at full retail to get the items you desire. Wish Lists with less than 12 items to select from may be deemed unfulfillable, at Palladium’s sole discretion, and rejected and your money refunded.

Reasons to get a Surprise Package

* 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 and surprise your friends with a gift worth $95-$105 or more for a cost of only $58 plus shipping.

* Fill holes in your own collection or get books and product you’ve been meaning to get or have been eyeballing longingly.

* Replace your worn out books with a crisp new one.

* Try new settings and games.

* Get autographs.

* 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 or alternative items may include other RPG books, The Rifter®, posters, prints, art books, T-shirts, greeting cards, back stock items, uncut covers, negatives, and other items or a surprise or two.

* Rifts® Savage Worlds Gamers, this is your chance to get piles of Rifts® books for world information, monsters, magic and adventure ideas on the cheap. Sorry, Rifts® Savage Worlds books are not available.

* The Magic of Palladium Books® Collection, a reprint of the original tabloids, only available upon request. Almost out of stock. Get ‘em while you can. Includes some source material for gaming.

* One-of-a-kind book negatives resemble woodcut art and are very dynamic conversation pieces. Before digital printing, pages of a book were laid out by hand on a board, and each page was photographed. The plastic film negatives were then “ganged” on a massive sheet of Mylar, 16 pages per big sheet, and printing plates were made from the negatives. Each negative comes signed by Kevin Siembieda on a white board inside a plastic magazine bag and looks great framed! Fits in an 8x10 inch matt opening in a frame (each neg is roughly 8½ x 11 inches). Sorry, you cannot request a negative from a specific book. Right now we have negatives available from a few Rifts® titles. Value ranges from $2-$50 depending on the book and the artwork that may appear on it.
