I don't have all the background.  Do we know who it was that ripped
the company off?  It also sounds like some of Kevin Simbieda's
personal belongings were stolen as well.

You know, I fully expected that eventually Palladium would either just
sort of fade away or be bought out, I didn't expect them to collapse
due to something like this.  Bloody pity too.  I haven't been a big
fan of a lot of the later stuff, but I can tell you that the first
time I rolled up a character for TMNT, I thought this was the kewlest
roleplaying game in the world.  I remember my brother telling me about
Rifts after he read about it in Dragon magazine, and we both went down
to the local hobby store to grab our copies.  It was like a sacred
tome, and even though I've played other games over the years, Rifts
just keeps dragging me back.

If the company does fold, I hope whoever buys up the product doesn't
just butcher it into yet another D20 beast.
