OCC Spotlights

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. These soldiers with their transforming suits of motorcycle armor are just about the coolest damn things ever made, and you get to play one! 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. Love ’em or hate ’em (or love to hate ’em!), they are a hallmark of the setting, and there’s just _so much_ lore on them to devour. Listen in as we talk about our takes on the faction, their core classes, and ways to involve them in campaigns.

The Glitterbois #0044: OCC Spotlight on the Dog Boy

In this issue of the OCC Spotlight series, we’re looking at another core (and iconic) Rifts character class, the Psi-Hound – better known as the “Dog Boy.” This is NPC’s favorite class, hands down, across the entire Rifts catalog. We talked about Dog Boys a bit in our character creation series, but now we’re here to give it a deeper dive!
