Big Things Coming

46 likes

This is just a brief update to touch base with you and make sure you know you are not forgotten. Far from it. We’ve been working on a number of things for Robotech® RPG Tactics™. Wave 2, of course, but also some things to keep you excited about RRT until the next Wave is unleashed.

Our focus for the next few months is going to be heavily on Robotech® RPG Tactics™. We want to see RRT Wave Two released by the end of the year, but we have a number of other things coming sooner that we think will please our Robotech® Kickstarter backers and all our supporters very much. Things that are being made here in the US and will not take much time away from our energy to get Wave Two into your hands.

Kevin had a good talk with Harmony Gold USA just last week and they have green-lighted our plans. We are hammering out the final details right now and will be in a position to start revealing details the first week of June, 2015.

One such bit of news is 3 new Robotech® RPG Tactics™ convention exclusives — ALL of which will be offered to our Kickstarter backers online via Backerkit. This way you do not have to be at the convention or wait in line to get these items, you can get them from the comfort of your home. The new exclusives are: Miriya in a Super Veritech Guardian mode, Breetai in heavy armor, and Grell in male power armor (along with a Malcontent card). We are likely to also re-offer Max and Miriya this way as we continue to get requests for them (they are out of stock at the moment). Details to follow in two weeks.

We are doing this (and more) to keep the enthusiasm for Robotech® RPG Tactics™ boiling and to provide a taste of what’s coming. We believe in Robotech® RPG Tactics™, have big plans, and intend to support it heavily as we deliver the mecha and fighting forces of all eras of Robotech®. And we’re listening to you and your suggestions to make this game everything you might want. Details to follow.

Of related interest . . .

we are working to get Robotech® Expeditionary Force Marines™ finished and to the printer in time for a Gen Con (or sooner) release.

The RRT Tournament at the Palladium Open House went very well thanks to the efforts of Patrick “Jake” Jakubowski, who lost his voice Friday night, but still managed to run a dynamic tournament event. Several people brought with them some impressive Robotech® ship models. Winners liked the trophies and were surprised by the prizes given out. It was a fun event.

Much, much more to follow.

Rest of World Has Shipped!

Hey, everyone. Sorry for the long time between updates. I will be posting another update in the next couple of weeks with some exciting news, but for now...

Rest of World Shipping Complete

As many of you will know by now, Wave 1 rewards for Rest of World backers have been gradually shipping over the last few weeks. Well, except for a handful of exceptions due to address issues, they've finally all gone out as of this afternoon.

Brief Update

18 likes

Hey, guys. We’re heading out of town in the morning for AdeptiCon, but I wanted to post a quick update to cover a couple of things.

Europe

Wave One rewards have been shipping to European backers for the last week or so, and just about all of you should have gotten emails with tracking links by now. If you haven’t, that means that either you didn’t order anything that’s shipping in Wave One, or there is some sort of issue. In the latter case, send us a Kickstarter message or an email to kickstarter@palladiumbooks.com and we’ll look into it.

Australia

The container arrived in Sydney last Thursday, and it should reach the distributor in the next few days. I will post more details as soon as I have them, but watch your email for shipping notifications.

AdeptiCon

As I said above, we’ll be at AdeptiCon this week/weekend, so if you’re in the Chicago area, please stop by and say hello. We’ll have demos running at our booth, as well as a big Robotech® RPG Tactics™ tournament, and hopefully other games. We’ll also have plenty of RRT product to purchase, as well as sourcebooks for the Robotech® RPG and our other game lines. Hope to see you there.

Wave 2 Update

55 likes

Hey, guys. Wayne here.

I've been promising Wave 2 updates and pictures for a while now, but it has taken me so long to start posting them, some have begun to express some doubts. I’m sorry about that; there’s no reason you guys should ever feel in the dark so much that you start to worry about whether we’re even working on this stuff. Well, we are. ALL Wave Two pieces are either done or in active development. But pictures are worth more than words, so here you go.

Today, I’ll start with the few pieces I mentioned in the January 17, 2015 Update. More will be coming in the following days.

The Gnerl

The Gnerl is pretty much done. There are one or two very minor changes we’re considering, but honestly I don’t think they’re necessary. At the size of the final piece, I don’t think they’d even be noticeable.

The Ghost

Lots of progress was made on the Ghost, but there are a couple of details that need added or changed. There is some detail missing on the “canopy” area, and the bottom of the big air intake on the top isn't quite right, but we’re getting there.

The Lancer

Jeff still wants a couple tweaks to this one, but I think we’re done. This is another small piece, and it’s going to look great.

The Glaug-Eldare

I’ll have to compare notes with Jeff, but I think this one is done, too. The last round of changes went well, and I think they covered everything. Yes, it has quite a few parts, but this will be a big, feature piece on the battlefield.

The Jotun Armored Valkyrie

This guy still needs a bit of work. In addition to some detail that’s either missing or wrong, we’re still trying to remove some seams, or at least move them to places they won’t be noticed. In particular, we’re trying to move the seams on the lower legs to the edge of the armor plate on the side, where there should be a seam anyway.

Chinese New Year was last week, but it’s a 2-3 week long holiday season in China, so there hasn't been much work being done on that end this month. They’re about to come back, though, so things will be picking up in March.

Last Call for European Address Changes

18 likes

Hey, everyone.

Like the title says, if you’re in Europe and your address has changed since you last gave it to us, your time is just about up. The NYK Meteor, carrying all Wave One rewards for European backers, is in the English Channel right now, scheduled to dock in Southampton tomorrow. From there, it might only be a few days to a week before the container clears Customs and is sent on to the warehouse that will be shipping the packages to backers throughout Europe.

I have already sent the “final” backer data to the warehouse so they could import it into their shipping system in preparation for sending the packages out, but we have received at least one address change since then. There may be more, and that’s fine, but send them NOW. It’s far better to change it at the last minute rather than a week later, after the package has already been shipped and there’s nothing that can be done about it.

Australia

The Corcovado passed through the Panama Canal two days ago, and is now headed straight for Sydney. It’s a little over two weeks out still, but we’ll need any remaining Australian address changes sent to us in the next week.

Rest of World

For those of you outside North America, Europe and Australia, your packages are about to ship. Make sure we get any address changes as soon as possible.

More Free Stuff Online

As many of you have noticed, I posted several more things on our DriveThruRPG page this week, including detailed assembly instructions for all three modes of the Valkyrie, among others. More of those are coming next week. That stuff is all here: http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/browse/pub/2627/Palladium-Books/subcategory/4816_22530/Robotech-RPG-Tactics

I also posted the images from the color guide as individual files on our own website, for those of you who can’t or don’t want to get them from DriveThru, or who only want a few individual images. These are the exact same images that appear in the PDFs on DriveThru, so there’s no need to download both. They can be found here: http://www.palladiumbooks.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=765&Itemid=479
