The Roboblog Chronicles: Episode 7.5 | Spots of News
- Robotech.com has a pair of new polls asking whether you the major boobage on display in Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles was too much or not. Yes, kids, Robotech.com is perpetuating the topic that will never die. *sigh*
- Palladium Books has issued a new press release that, among other things, indicates that the upcoming Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles RPG book has not been formally scheduled yet, and may in fact not even come out this year. As publisher Kevin Siembieda says:
Can we really get all these books out in 2007?
Probably not. Exactly how many are published will depend largely on the sales of recent releases, online products, and books released throughout the Summer.
While Palladium is doing much, much better than a year ago, we are not out of the woods nor working at full capacity.
Cash flow issues (translation: not enough money) continue to dog us, which is why the first 10 titles on the list, above, are tentative even though the manuscripts are sitting on my shelf. Likewise, there are a dozen key titles that need reprinting, but we don’t yet have the cash to print them.
February through May are always slow sales months for everyone in the RPG business. We’re hoping Summer (and Fall) sales rock, including the sale of specialty items offered only online (T-shirts, prints, greeting cards, etc.). If they sell, we can offer more product and do more reprints. The more we publish, the more money we make and the stronger we get, and that means we can publish more books.
And here's hoping they make that money, because I want that Shadow Chronicles book on my shelf.
For Palladium's full list of upcoming books and new merchandise (the greeting cards and stamps are pretty damn cool), read the whole release. Thanks to Treiz for passing this along!
