Bill Coffin

Bill Coffin is a writer of novels and role-playing games. He is probably best know for his work at Palladium Books at the end of the 1990s on a number of Palladium's lines including "Palladium Fantasy", "Heroes Unlimited", "Systems Failure" (his own game) and some work on the "Rifts" line.

Many people consider Bill to have been one of the best writers in Palladium's history. However, due to a conflict with Kevin Siembieda he left the company in 2002, much to the disappointment of his fans.

In 2007 it was announced that Coffin was working on a new campaign setting – "Septimus" – for the "D6 Space" core book for West End Games [http://www.westendgames.com/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=3 Announcement of his working with WEG] . However, due to financial concerns [ [http://www.gamingreport.com/article.php?sid=24990&mode=thread&order=0 Bill Coffin's Septimus Cancelled :: GamingReport.com :: Where Gamers get their News ] ] the publisher canceled the project. In May 2008 Coffin announced that he would release the game as a PDF under Evil Hat's " FATE" system [ [http://forum.rpg.net/showpost.php?p=8910813&postcount=193 RPGnet Forums - View Single Post - [Septimus Bill Coffin's Septimus Cancelled ] ] [ [http://forum.rpg.net/showpost.php?p=8913692&postcount=208 RPGnet Forums - View Single Post - [Septimus Bill Coffin's Septimus Cancelled ] ] .
