My beloved Palladium in trouble

Please Help Save Palladium from Going Under

An open letter from Kevin Siembieda, President & Owner.

A Crisis of Treachery

At a time when Palladium Books’ future has never looked more promising, we have been dealt a crippling blow.

For legal reasons, I cannot go into details about exactly what happened. Suffice it to say that betrayal of trust, theft, and embezzlement has inflicted what we estimate to be $850,000 to 1.3 million dollars in damages to Palladium.

It is a blow from which Palladium cannot recover. At least, not without YOUR help.

I know this is a late reply but I found out as well and was shocked. For the last seven years my group has played nothing but Palladium with a few others shot in for a break for a few weeks. I was devistated but I am glad to know things are working out for the better for them now. They settled in court for a small amount of funds and with the sales from the special print they offered have paid themselves up to the present, at least Kevin said all the past three months bills are caught up as well as past freelance commissions.

I will admit I purchased the prints as well and would hate to see Kevin and Palladium go under.

Oddly enough the phpbb forum owned by them is currently unavailable (I followed Strolen's link to get to them). Perhaps stuff ain't all bright and shiny after all?
