Today we take a look into the life and story of one of the more complex characters of the Robotech universe, Breetai the Zentraedi warlord. Initially a villain set on destroying the puny earthlings, he grew over time to become their unexpected and greatest ally. We dive into bits of his story across the shows, games, comics, and more.
In our newest Character Spotlight, we’re turning the shine to Captain Henry J. Gloval, commander of the great SDF-1 from the epic animated series Robotech. We also talk about starting our brand new (monthly?) book club! We’re kicking things off with Robotech: Genesis by Jack McKinney, which we’ve mentioned many times before on this podcast. Link is in the notes, so grab a copy and read along with us if you want to join in!
This is the first in what we hope will be a recurring series of character spotlights pulled directly from fan submissions. This one is inspired by our listener Clem, who statted up a fascinating new After the Bomb character on Twitter. We decided to take the stat sheet and see what kind of story we could come up with. Thanks Clem!
This episode is a look into ARCHIE-3, the notorious insane AI villain in Palladium’s Rifts setting. There is a massive hoard of potential for using ARCHIE-3 as an antagonist in your campaigns, and we’re here to talk about our own ideas and experiences with him. Drop by our Discord and share with us your own favorite ARCHIE-3 game stories!
Matthew’s here to lead us through a deep look into his favorite character from the Robotech series, Roy Fokker. Roy is everyone’s favorite pineapple-salad-loving Veritech-flying Big Brother, and it’s a shame we never got to see him fully statted up. Write us and let us know what your favorite Roy moment was from the series!
Brandon joins us again! This time we kick off another hopefully-recurring segment called “Character Spotlight,” wherein we pick a character and discuss them at length. It may be a character from the books, a character we’ve played in our own games, or even a character from popular media that we want to stat up in Palladium rules. This time, we’re talking about Martin Goodish, Brandon’s character in our ongoing Rifts campaign.
