The Glitterbois #0160: OCC Spotlight on the Mind Melter

Today we’re back to another OCC Splotlight (yes I noticed the typo but I like it and am keeping it), this time on another of the core Rifts classes, the Mind Melter. As usual, we compare both the Butts and the Ultimate edition versions, and what we like about them. And if you’ve ever wanted to know the true secret behind the three seashells, listen closely. Then stop my our Discord and say hi!

The Glitterbois #0139: OCC Spotlight on the Mystic (Rifts)

Today we’re talking about the Glory Days of Butts! Oh wait, no, we’re actually just talking about another – you know it – “iconic” core OCC from Rifts, the Mystic. The mystic is a simple but fun class that blends magic and psionics together into a kitchen sink kind of caster, which fits pretty solidly in a kitchen sink kind of setting like Rifts. What was your favorite Mystic character? Drop by our Discord and share!

The Glitterbois #0082: OCC Spotlight on the NEMA Soldier

We’re taking another look at the Chaos Earth campaign setting this time, and shining a spotlight on one of the more versatile Rifts classes out there: the NEMA Soldier. This class is a fantastic working template for ideas that you can apply to just about any other basic military character in the Megaverse. What are your favorite NEMA Soldier memories?

The Glitterbois #0073 – OCC Spotlight on the Borg

Back after another unexpected break, we continue our ongoing OCC Spotlight series with a look at yet another “iconic” character from the Rifts RPG: The Borg! AKA the “Combat Borg” if you’re only familiar with the Ultimate Edition. This nigh unstoppable powerhouse of murderosity has been a go=to favorite of long time players for decades, and in this episode we’re here to tell you why. We spend time comparing the renditions of this class across the two editions of the game, and also dice deeper into some role-playing inspirations for players wanting to bring a Borg to the gaming table.

The Glitterbois #0072: OCC Spotlight on the Cyclone

We’re finally back to doing another Robotech episode, and this time we’re taking a deeper look at the awesome Cyclone.

We also talk about some of the extended properties around the Cyclone, including the lamentably awful Xbox games. Give us a list, then let us know your favorite versions of the Cyclone!

The Glitterbois #0050: Intro to the Coalition States (Rifts)

We’ve made it to episode 50! Huzzah! To celebrate we’re doing a longer episode, talking about the default villains of the Rifts RPG: the Coalition States.

Listen in as we talk about our takes on the faction, their core classes, and ways to involve them in campaigns.
