Boyce (a savage) won these steam keys: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Standard Edition & Black Ops 4 Additional Content
Sara won these steam keys: Call of Duty WWII, CoD Endowment "Fear Not" Pack & CoD Endowment "Bravery" Pack

Congrats to our two winners!
Huge congrats and special thanks to Draggor's player in Phase World for doing some artistic and skillful coding on behalf of the community and making our die roller AMAZING. Contact me via Discord and we can work out some reward--you've definitely earned such.
In January I'll be auditing the supporter roles and updating the supporter admin thread. Anniversaries which have been overlooked the last few months will be doled out at the conclusion of this audit.
In January I'll be running a one-shot Rifts adventure on Roll20.
I want to limit EU member participation to a maximum of 2 players as this is intended to introduce players new to either Rifts or Palladium to the game. Scheduled date is TBD, but I'll be promoting it on Discord on the appropriate channels there. Here's a sneak preview via the game's landing page:

Audit complete. Supporter List is up to date: viewtopic.php?f=962&t=15298&p=1358753#p1358753
We have 51 supporters total. A new dimension/setting will open on EU (likely Robotech) when we reach 55. I'll be doling out anniversary rewards and conducting lotteries shortly.
As I no longer have access to past records of Patronage, I'm hereby switching Supporter Anniversary rewards on EU to being a January event. So EVERYBODY who's a supporter on EU is receiving their anniversary reward NOW. Happy New Year!

Roll20 players, if you're a supporter and would like to discuss the Rifts: Humble Origins campaign, we'll be meeting on Discord tonight around 7pm CST to discuss the campaign, and its relaunch.

The second Saturday of each month is the scheduled night for the game. Same standard as always: 4 players minimum for a viable session otherwise it's cancelled & the game goes up to poll.

Recap of last adventure compliments of @Steve / Rhett / Chuck / Tannir: viewtopic.php?p=1377338#p1377338

Thanks to Chris Milan for returning as a supporter! That brings us to 60 supporters total! Time to open up a new dimension/game setting on EU!
Chris, get on Discord so you can be properly showered with praise & recognition!
Next setting opens up at 70 supporters, so we've got a long haul ahead before we return to that milestone, but by providing quality content and showing new and old players alike the value of the community, I know we'll get there eventually.
I'll get a poll up in Community Chat on Discord to find out which setting the community wants to open up next!

New Play-by-post Games on EU

Beyond the Supernatural: John/Consumer has stepped up to DM this setting. It will be a Beyond the Supernatural game set in the 1920's, nestled in the foothills and hollers of the Appalachian mountains, likely in the Tennessee Valley. There the players will deal with ancient evils buried in the earth. Three players have already committed to this game, with room for 3 more.
Game Forum & Discord Channel

Dead Reign: The End is Now: James/The Governor has stepped up to DM this setting. It will be a Dead Reign game set in today's America, starting in The Big Easy, New Orleans. Four players have already committed to this game, with room for 2 more. This game is due to launch in March!
Game Forum & Discord Channel

Robotech: Tiree has stepped up to DM this setting. The Campaign starts some time between the Macross and Masters Sagas. While the details remain to be hammered out between Tiree and interested players, this fan-favorite setting is sure to blow up in popularity once Tiree is finished putting the polish on things.
Game Forum & Discord Channel

Heroes Unlimited: Galactic: After being on hiatus for a year, this game still has 3 committed players, and is waiting for at least one more player to commit before it can re-launch. This is a gritty, sci-fi setting set in the Heroes Unlimited Universe where the protagonists are what's left of the Arismal race.
Game Forum & Discord Channel

After the Bomb: This game setting was just unlocked and narrowly beat out Nightbane to become the next open dimension as the community got its 60th supporter. A Dimension Master (DM) is needed, and lots of work will need to be done to get this setting up and running.
Game Forum & Discord Channel

Games on Roll20

Rifts: Humble Origins is the currently active Roll20 campaign for supporters of the community. This is a gritty campaign played mostly inside the walls of Merctown where our protagonists are a group of street urchins trying to make their way up the urban crime food chain to prominence within the Merctown Black Market syndicate. In the future, additional campaigns will open/resume as time permits.

One-Shots are held the second Friday of each month, are open to the public, and are a fun way to both expose new players to Palladium's content and to our community. I currently run either Dead Reign or Rifts for these One-Shots. Robotech and Beyond the Supernatural Roll20 games are in development as well, but if you're a supporter, I'd like your feedback as to whether or not to make these campaigns, or as one-shots. Reply and let me know.
