Description Edit | History

From website:

A long, time Palladium gamer with aspirations to write, Carl Gleba has become one of Palladium Books most prolific freelance writers. He has six published books, one in the pipeline, and contributions in nearly a dozen other Palladium titles.

Carl’s body of work started with Rifts® Dimension Book Six: Three Galaxies™, his first venture at serious writing. What started out to be a submission to The Rifter® turned into an unsolicited manuscript submission given directly to Kevin and (former wife) Maryann Siembieda when Carl first met the Siembiedas at a convention in western New York. Carl's next book was Rifts® Dimension Book 7: Megaverse Builder™, an ambitious adventure sourcebook with rules for creating your own corner of the Megaverse®. His most ambitious project, however, is the five book Minion War™ crossover series (Hades, Dyval™, Dimensional Outbreak™, Armageddon Unlimited™ and Megaverse® in Flames).

The Minion War is an elaborate metaplot involving a war between the minions of two rival planes of Hell that spills across the Megaverse. It has plots and connections to the worlds of Palladium Fantasy®, Heroes Unlimited™, Phase World®, the Three Galaxies™ and Rifts®. Best of all, each book in the series can be used as a stand-alone sourcebook or as part of the sprawling Minion War. The final book in the series, Megaverse® in Flames, should be released Summer 2011.

Carl is currently developing a PDF Game Master Package and a Rifts® Primer to help people run games. His other projects are top secret, for the moment.

Carl's introduction to role-playing was Advanced Dungeons and Dragons in the early 1980s. Then he discovered Palladium's Robotech® RPG and was hooked. He’s Game Mastered and played numerous Palladium game settings with Rifts® and Palladium Fantasy® being his two all-time favorites. Carl is a role-player who continues to game on a regular basis with the same group of friends for the last 20 years. Most of the time he is the Game Master, and it is this experience and keen sense of storytelling that has made him a skilled writer of sourcebooks. When Carl is a player, he prefers to play magic users above all other classes, although he does tend to mix it up for variety.

A big science fiction fan, it shouldn't surprise anyone that Star Trek (in all its incarnations) is its among his favorite TV shows and movies, followed by shows like Sliders, Star Wars (the various movies), Doctor Who, Quantum Leap and Fringe. Carl's other hobbies include taking care of the family dog and being a "do-it-yourselfer" when it comes to home improvements. His future ambitions include writing more Rifts® Dimension Books, assisting in the writing of Mechanoids® Space and helping Palladium Books wherever and whenever necessary. Carl and his wife Lisa live in central New York. He is employed by a major New York bank and is a manager of a technical support and development group.
