Megaversal Ambassadors

Greetings, all!

I know I’ve been off the grid for a while, but I’ve hit one heck of a roadblock, mentally, professionally, and everything else. These things happen to every gamer; there’s nothing to it but to work through it as best you can. Sometimes, I think it helps to go back to what you know best, back to your roots—and for me, that’s Palladium Books.

One of the things I’ve been doing as I get back in the swing of things is working on the Megaversal Ambassadors (MAs), the group I helped found a few years ago. They’re dedicated to running and demoing Palladium’s games at conventions, local game stores, and for local groups. I’ve created a new FAQ for prospective members, a game demo tracking form, a contact form, and I am working on an Ambassador registry, where interested gamers can locate a MA in their local area for demos and support. This isn’t some rules-lawyering entity, and it’s not an over-regulating bureaucracy. It’s about sharing the fun of Palladium's games with others, and helping people do the same.

If you’re one of the RPG Blog 2 readers who enjoys Palladium and think you might want to help, either with running games, artistically (logos, fliers, etc.), or just want to find out more, check out the MA forums over at the new Palladium Books website, or just drop me an email (mail.rpgblog(at)gmail.com). Whether it’s the variety of Palladium Fantasy, the kitchen-sink brilliant madness of Rifts, or newer games like the zombie horror of Dead Reign, we’d be thrilled to have you on board.

Good to have you back again!

I wish I new enough people who would play Palladium games with me so that I could learn the rules well enough to be an Ambassador. I have so many Palladium books, but when I bring up running a Palladium game the few players I have available suddenly remember they're busy or flat out refuse to play.
I know the system needs work, but there is something appealing about the Palladium stuff. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it is the system I want to play, but know that I'll likely never play. Though I still keep buying the books.

Thanks, guys, and thanks for reading!

@clash: Thanks, clash! I'm hoping someone will run IHW for me at Gen Con this year. That's always the dream. :)
