One game system – every genre – countless worlds – endless adventure

Palladium Open House is coming up fast. Only 5 weeks away. More importantly, the deadline to get the special hotel room rate is TODAY, March 15, so please reserve your hotel room(s) now if you have not done so already.

Robotech® has continued to take up much of our attention as we continue to process the many Robotech® RPG Tactics Reward Exchanges. As previously reported, Palladium is unable to produce the Robotech® RPG Tactics Wave Two rewards and simply does not have the financial resources to offer cash refunds for remaining Robotech® RPG Tactics (RRT) Wave 2 pledges, but we are offering a refund in-kind by exchanging Wave One rewards for remaining Wave Two pledges.

If you are a backer and want to participate in the Rewards Exchange, please get back to us at your earliest convenience, before March 20, 2018. March 20 is the deadline to get us your Reward Exchange information, but we will be shipping through the end of March. More details about the Robotech situation and the exchange program can be found here and here.

The response to the Wave One Reward Exchange Program has been strong and while most items are available in good quantities, they are only available while supplies last, on a first come, first served basis.

Liquidating Robotech® RPG titles and RRT products

Because Palladium’s Robotech® license has expired, we have only a small window of time to liquidate remaining stock of Robotech® RPG books and Robotech® RPG Tactics™ (RRT) products that may remain after the Reward Exchange with our Kickstarter backers.

We feel comfortable enough with our supplies to put most of the Robotech® RPG books up for sale now, as well as reduce the price of the Robotech® RPG Tactics™ main box game to $80, but it will be available for less next week. We anticipate the main box game and most RRT products will be offered at a steep discount by the end of next week once we are confident we can satisfy the many requests coming in for the Kickstarter Reward Exchange Program. HOWEVER, you will have a very short window of time to acquire them at the reduced prices. Everything must go by March 31, 2018.

Please note: All Robotech® items are available only while supplies last. If there is a Robotech® item you really want, you may not want to wait for a sale to acquire it. The following items are already sold out:

  • UEDF Token Pack – sold out.
  • Max Sterling’s Valkyrie Convention Exclusive miniature – sold out
  • Robotech® Genesis Pits Sourcebook (Cat. No. 555) – sold out

Robotech® RPG Books Super-Sale – most items 50% off

Original Robotech® RPG & Sourcebooks PDFs – on sale now – available only until March 31 – DriveThruRPG.com

PDF books of the original Robotech® Role-Playing Game and sourcebooks from the 1980s and 1990s are already on sale on DriveThruRPG.com – till March 31, 2018. After that, they will no longer be available. Likewise, we believe Palladium Books will be required to remove even the FREE Robotech® RPG Tactics™ material from DriveThruRPG as we will no longer hold the license. Please get all the items you desire for your personal library before March 31, 2018. After March 31, 2018 ALL Robotech® and RRT material must be taken down from DriveThru.

One game system – every genre – countless worlds – endless adventure

Robotech® has consumed most of this week for us. In case you haven’t yet heard, Palladium announced that despite our best efforts, we are unable to produce the Robotech® RPG Tactics Wave Two rewards and simply do not have the financial resources to offer cash refunds for remaining Robotech® RPG Tactics (RRT) Wave 2 pledges. Palladium is offering a refund in-kind by exchanging existing Wave One rewards for the remaining Wave Two pledges.

The response to the Wave One Reward Exchange Program has been strong and while most items are available in good quantities, they are only available while supplies last, on a first come, first served basis. If you are a backer and want to participate in the Exchange, please get back to us at your earliest convenience, before March 20, 2018. Thank you. More details about this sad circumstance and the exchange program can be found here.

Liquidating Robotech® RPG titles and RRT products

As stated last week, after proudly carrying the legacy of Robotech® in the role-playing games medium for 30 years, our license has expired and is not being renewed.

Palladium Books has only a small window of time to liquidate its remaining stock of Robotech® RPG books and Robotech® RPG Tactics™ (RRT) products. While we anticipate offering sales on Robotech® product later in March, we cannot promise that all items will be available when the sales are offered. All Robotech® items are available only while supplies last. Case in point, Robotech® Genesis Pits (Cat. No. 555) sold out last week. And Robotech® New Generation Sourcebook is not far behind it. If there is a title you really want, we recommend you do not wait for a sale to acquire it.

We are waiting on the sales until we are reasonably certain we have enough to satisfy our Kickstarter backers participating in the Exchange Program. That said, The Robotech® Shadow Chronicles RPG Hardcover Gold Edition is on sale right now for $40 (normal price $70; signed and numbered limited edition). We have fewer than 50 copies in stock.

Original Robotech® RPG & Sourcebooks PDFs – on sale now – available only until March 31 – DriveThruRPG.com

PDF books of the original Robotech® Role-Playing Game and sourcebooks from the 1980s and 1990s are already on sale on DriveThruRPG.com – till March 31, 2018. After that, they will no longer be available. Likewise, we believe Palladium Books will be required to remove even the FREE Robotech® RPG Tactics™ material from DriveThruRPG as we will no longer hold the license. Please get all the items you desire for your personal library before March 31, 2018.

I would like to state that the people at Harmony Gold USA, Inc., have been wonderful partners to work with these many years. They went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to their assistance with trying to keep RRT alive. Our thanks to everyone involved.
